About Richard Leenher

I live in Sonoma, California when not having fun in Costa Rica. I enjoy fishing, diving and playing golf along the Pacific Coast near by. I try to visit my second home in Costa Rica at least 2 months a year so I can enjoy the adventure always waiting for me when I arrive. Warm breezes, sunny skies and balmy nights are waiting for you. Enjoy!


Richard Leenher purchased this condo in 2006

Why Richard Leenher chose Guanacaste

Located near one of the best beaches in Costa Rica. Casa Delfin is across the street from the beach where you can stroll for miles along the shoreline and enjoy a refreshing swim.

We are situated in a quit residential neighborhood with very light traffic but yet close to downtown Tamarindo only a mile away. Our pool is shared with only a few guests in our complex so you will feel you have the whole place to yourself.

Our kitchen is fully outfitted for the best of chefs if you decide to dine in.

What makes this condo unique

A quiet surrounding for relaxation during your stay and only 5 minutes away from the convenient downtown Tamarindo.

Sweet 2 bedroom !condo just off the beach in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We all loved Rich's ground-floor condo right across from the beach and some great restaurants along beautiful Playa Langosta which runs right into gorgeous Playa Tamarindo. Don't miss the great bar and restaurant Boku and the sunset from the rooftop patio-wild parakeets roosting in the Guanacaste nearby. The dust and the noise from the coast road die down soon enough and all you hear is the lap of the Pacific on the rocks and sand, the rush of wind through the Palm trees. Rich is SUPER helpful with preparation information and local contacts (read his email attachments!) and the staff at La Esquina are great too! We felt safe and comfortable right from the get go. Pure Vida!

There is one of the best restaurants in CR called Patagonia in downtown Tamarindo you gotta go to. And early morning coffee along the beach in front or at La Palapa in town. Go now!!

Awesome Access, BEAUTIFUL property, all the amenities and more than home!

  • 5 of 5

Traveling to Costa Rica for the first time with extended family -- kiddo and grandparents. Rich opened up his home to us, and it was fabulous! I dropped the ball upon arrival in terms of coordinating keys, but reached out to Rich, and within 10 minutes a set were delivered to get us in! Saved me from the scowls. After that, everything was blissful. The home is beautiful and has everything we needed. We were so close to all the restaurants, bars, day and nightlife of Tamarindo. We could walk through the neighborhood to get to Playa Langosta to surf. Incredible stay, and would love to visit his place again soon! Thanks, Rich!

We were two couples who spent a month at Casa Delfin. This condo is tired and in bad need of an upgrade. We were certainly disappointed the minute we opened the door. On top of it needing a face lift it is dirty, Clean on the surface but needs a serious cleaning. There was dust hanging on the draperies, huge cobwebs hanging in all the corners and many layers of dust on all the light fixtures and ceiling fans, The living room had ants. The outdoor showers could be exotic as described if they were actually cleaned up, had the whole season of dead leaves and twigs raked up and had actual patio furniture in them. They are discusting. The fridge broke while we were there and they did get it somewhat fixed but it still would overheat and we would have to play around with all the settings until it would work again, I reported it repeatedly but they never looked at it again. The wall oven quit the last Mon we were there and they sent someone to look at it late on Wed. When we left on Sun they had never come back. Toilet paper and paper towels were to be supplied but we had to ask many, many times before we actually were provided any. The pool was the only saving grace for this condo. The long and short of it is if you are staying a week you could live with it but it is over priced. If you are looking to stay longer, keep looking.

Owner's Response: We were surprised to hear that you found our property was not prepared cleaned for your arrival. We promptly contacted housekeeping the day we found out about your dissatisfaction and asked them to fix any outstanding cleaning issues the next day. The refrigerator and the oven's circuit boards were damaged when a power surge hit the neighborhood's power grid. There were other homes in our complex that experienced damage to their appliances the same day. Our refrigerator was fixed and our oven will have a new circuit board replaced April 5 when the new replacement part arrives from the States. The Tamarindo area has experienced high winds during the winter months which has caused much dust and debris to accumulate very quickly around the exterior of the complex. The private garden and showers were affected by the blowing debris and it has been a maintenance challenge to keep up with the cleaning. We believe our rental rate during the "peak season" is very competitive with other villas in the area when we offer a 20% discount for long term rentals like yours. We appreciate your candor and we would like you to know we will share your comments with our housekeeping department and our decorator. Thanks for coming. Rich

A perfect get away

  • 5 of 5

The condo was on the first floor. Sliding doors off the living room and you were at the pool.... It is a quiet neighborhood away from the town of Tamarindo... But only a few minute drive by car or cab. There are lots of great places to eat in walking distance from the condo... Rich gives you a great print out of places to go and how to get back and forth to the airport at a great rate. The keys to the condo and safe were waiting for me at the guarded gate. when I arrived .. The guys were great there if you needed anything they helped you.... I only stayed eight days but it was fun.... Thanks for sharing your home with me

The ONLY place to stay in Tamarindo

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself and 5 year old spent 2 weeks in Costa Rica and this villa was more than we could imagine. It is one block from the beach and there is a beautiful pool right outside the door of the living room. We did the beach in the am & the pool in the afternoon. We grilled at home and enjoyed many great restaurants recommend by the owner Rich. He was gracious and available to answer any questions. There were no cars available to rent so we rented a golf cart which turned out to be one of my daughters favorite things. We met many great neighbors and hands down this is the BEST unit in the complex. It is on the first floor so no lugging stuff upstairs and an end unit with outdoor bathrooms/shower. You get what you pay for and this will not disappoint. This is the only place I would recommend to friends and family. Thank you Rich - see you again!!!!

Amazing House and Great Service

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful, directly on the beach and only a short cab ride to Tamarindo. Amy (the housekeeper) was wonderful. She cooked, cleaned and did laundry for our group of 11 people whenever we requested. I really don't have any complaints about any part of our trip and would definitely go back. Highly recommend Casa Paquita.
