We loved Casa Leon, everything was really clean and nice. Elsa and Beto did a great job and the two ladies that were assigned to cook and clean are the Best ladies in the world. loved the guacamole and pico they made each day!!! the location and the beach , less than a 2 min walk, was a stunning site. best beach in guanacaste , very private and beautiful waves and sand.

Business Meetings and Vacation
We booked Casa Leon to hold our annual business planning meeting/vacation. The house was spacious, clean and had everything we needed to host meetings and spend a week in Costa Rica in comfort. The house as amazing as advertised. The 8 bedrooms, with all but one having it's own private bathroom, provided the accomodations we were looking for. Having the house mom's cook us breakfast every morning allowed for productive morning meetings giving us time to enjoy the afternoon at the pool or beach. It's a very short walk to the beach and the Beach Club. Access to the beach club is a tremendous perk. Whether it's for quick lunch or spending the whole afternoon. Service and food at the were top notch and the people we met were warm and gracious. House keeping services were daily and we always had fresh towels and clean dishes to start the day. It was truly an amazing stay and we're already looking forward to a return visit to Costa Rica and Casa Leon.

Great Family Retreat
Elsa our concierge, was outstanding in arranging events and coaching us on what activities we should do, as it was our first trip to Costa Rica. The home was just as advertised, large home, great pool, great location. It was an easy walking distance to beach and Beach Club. The 10 adult members of our family had a great time.

I don't think I could have asked for a better location in Tamarindo area for my friends and I. This place has 8 rooms and all rooms were top quality rooms. Everyone loved their room and even praised me for finding it LOL. Elsa communicated well and helped my understand the area and some of the services it came with.
It close to a small private entry beach in a very secured nice and quiet neighborhood. You can easily request for a service that you want such as chef or massage and it will be easily provided for you and your group.
We truly enjoyed our stay and will stay here again in Tamarindo if I have to.
Thanks to Elsa and Dani

Avellanas Tropical Paradise
Our family had a wonderful vacation in the Costa Rican tropical paradise of Las Avellanas. Casa Leon is a beautiful property with private beach access nearby. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. We spent time at the beach nearly every day, enjoying the warm ocean waters sometimes by ourselves. The housekeepers, Dani and Mered, were the best! They were genuinely kind and hospitable. We were spoiled with a full breakfast every morning and snacks/drinks to enjoy in the afternoon, usually at poolside. The property host, Mariam, was very gracious, welcoming and supportive during our entire stay. She helped us in so many ways, from coordinating transportation, pre-ordering groceries, taking a family member to the community medical clinic, renting a vehicle, excursion planning and making restaurant recommendations and reservations. Don’t know what we would have done without her! We had a memorable vacation and positive experience overall. We would certainly love to come back and visit again for this 5-star experience!

My family and I just stayed in Casa Leon and it was fantastic! The pool was perfect, especially the temperature. The house was certainly big enough to fit 16 adults plus one infant. We used the kitchen to cook meals for everyone and there were plenty of tools to make this work well. It was amazing to have the housekeeping staff cook breakfast for us every morning and it was delicious!

This villa was absolutely beautiful and well appointed! Mariam was able to help us take care of every detail from restaurant reservations, booking activities, baby rental items, grocery delivery as well as private chef services and much more. She answered every question (and there were many) with grace and patience. She played a huge part in making this vacation one to remember.

Beautiful
Our family reunion of 13 people truly enjoyed our stay at this home. The property is beautiful. We especially loved the shady pool and the large dining table which we all fit at. We loved spending time together as a family in the home. The beach which was a 2 min walk from the house, was so perfect and serene as was the beach club which was a 7 min walk from the house. We loved having so much private beach access, a private pool club all in addition to the house pool (which we used a ton). The house cleaner crew of 2 were lovely. We didn't need them to cook much for us as we did most of our own cooking but they did make breakfast one morning and it was delicious. They also made fresh guac and ceviche for us one day after we caught a bunch of fish. That was a great treat too. The only issue was we did have 3 nights without AC in one of the 8 rooms. However, the management team worked really hard for 3 days to fix it and ended up taking care of us at the end. The 8 bedrooms are perfect for couples as they are all almost identical with a king bed and private bathroom,. This made it easy for us all to choose a room and no one felt cheated with a smaller bed and no one had to share a bathroom which was great. I loved the suggestions for the spa and private yacht that the concierge, Mariam, recommended too. My son surfed almost everyday and caught the best waves of his life! Overall, we had a great vacation and we all want to go back and stay in the house again.

This house is beautiful inside and out! We had our whole family of 15, each had their own bedrooms and bathrooms so no sharing. Walkable to the beach as well. The housekeepers were amazing and cooked a wonderful breakfast each day for us. They kept the house cleaned during day. Maintenance guy was awesome as well cleaning up pool/bbq area. All very nice! The property manager was very helpful and responded quickly to any emails.
Wonderful Stay, we would definitely come back!

Just returned from renting this home. From the start to finish the process of renting, the quality of the home and most importantly was our host, Mariam, she is the best. There were two house keepers there every day to cook us breakfast, fix great cocktails and keep the home clean. We used 6 of the 8 bedrooms, rented golf carts to tour the local area and enjoyed some of the best that Costa Rica has to offer. If you rent there and have the chance to hire chef Sebastian, you won't regret it. We scheduled him for 2 nights but added a third after our first dinner. Our plated dinners were as amazing as any restaurant that we have ever visited. Making it some of the best part while staying at the home and have such fantastic diners. Alan Johnson

Casa Leon…..The best ever!!!!
This was our third family trip to Costa Rica and our second stay in Casa Leon. The house with its eight bedrooms easily accommodates our family of six adults and four children ages 8-13. We added two additional family members on this trip with no problem fitting them in. The home is spacious, well appointed and extremely well maintained. The Wi-Fi signal is powerful and kept us connected when we wanted to be. The beds are very comfortable as well as all the furniture. The kitchen is equipped with every utensil,pot,pan and cooking apparatus you can think of. The maids were at the house every day at 8 to prepare breakfast for the clan….a bountiful repast loaded up with eggs,sausage, pancakes, fresh pineapple,papaya, bananas and mango. After breakfast, they quietly went about cleaning the house and even did our laundry. I have travelled all over the world and stayed in some of the finest hotels on the planet and I have never experienced this level of service. Of course, it didn’t stop with the maid service. The swimming pool and landscaping were maintained seemingly every day. The pool is perfectly located off the back of the house seemingly built right into the jungle. Post our daily surfing safaris the pool was the next stop for parents and kids alike. Casa Leon is located within a gated community which in turn is within the gated and secure Hacienda Pinilla Ranch. The ranch encompasses some 40,000 acres and includes golf,tennis,mountain biking, hiking, surfing and spa facilities as well as a JW Marriott. Hacienda Pinilla is fronted by the pristine beaches of Playa Avellenas and Plays Langosta. The ocean water is in the 80’s and the the waves can accommodate every level of surfer. The Hacienda Pinilla Beach Club is a short walk from Casa Leon and has a great pool, food service and spa. When they say Casa Leon is steps from the beach….they are not kidding. We rented two golf carts to shuttle kids, surf boards, ice chests and beach chairs to the beach every day; but, often we would walk the 100 yards or so to the beach and post up for a morning walk, surf session, shell collecting or to catch a spectacular evening sunset. Although our stay at Casa Leon was during the shoulder period of the rainy season. The rain was short, intermittent and a refreshing change from the sun. I could go on about the proximity of Casa Leon to Tamarindo and its beaches and restaurants, zip lining through the jungle, horseback riding et al; but, I will close this review with a simple statement….Costa Rica, Hacienda Pinilla, Casa Leon and StayTamarindo…….Simply the “ Best Ever”.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about our weeklong stay at Casa Leon. The house is gorgeous! The pool was magnificent. The kitchen had everything we could’ve wanted. The spacious bedrooms were perfect for our 2 families. And we didn’t even use all the bedrooms! There was room for one, perhaps two more families. The house is a 2 minute walk to the beach and a 5 minute walk to the Hacienda Pinilla Beach Club. Delma and Mary came every morning to cook us the most delicious breakfasts and then were at the house cleaning, doing laundry and helping out with anything we needed into the late afternoon. They could not have been nicer or more accommodating. They were both fantastic. Thank you Delma and Mary!! And thank you to Elsa for helping coordinate everything during our stay! From the activities suggestions to the restaurant recommendations to the organization of all of our transportation….it would not have been the same vacation without Elsa’s help. We are sincerely grateful. I HIGHLY recommend this house for your next vacation!

Thanks to Covid, our long awaited family trip to Costa Rica was postponed 2.5 years. As frustrating as it was the wait was more than worth it! Casa Leon is located not far from Tamarindo for which we were grateful as it was full of American tourists. Located in the Hacienda Pinilla gated community, the home is beautiful and the kitchen was amazing! My grandchildren as well as the adults spent many fun-filled hours in the pool or simply relaxing under the large covered patio. We also enjoyed walking the lovely sandy beach along the ocean. The property management company was also great to work with. Highly recommend!

Casa Leon & Stay In Tamarindo is perfect in every way!
Planning a trip out of the country is always a learning experience but with the help of Mariam, I was able to rest assured that everything was taken care of. The house, service & experiences are all amazing!! The HOUSE: Everything was exactly as described and depicted in the pictures online. I actually reserved Casa Leon through Airbnb which made me feel comfortable knowing the credit card was secure. Although, after working with Mariam, I completely trust her and the company that manages this house. The amenities at Casa Leon include everything you need. The kitchen was well stocked including basic spices, oil, soap, paper towels & dish towels. The bathrooms had all the toilet paper, soap & towels we needed. They even provided pool/beach towels. Another bonus is that EVERY bedroom has a safe to lock your valuables away..The SERVICE: Before we even arrived, Mariam assisted in all the planning needs on anything including renting a golf cart, transportation from the airport (including a stop at the market), dinner reservations, excursions & chef services. I did not realize the rental included daily housekeeping. This was really nice although I don’t think necessary every day. You do have the option of asking them not to come every day.  Another bonus of housekeeping is they will cook breakfast if you provide the food. Mariam had explained that to me so I made sure to plan for a nice breakfast on the days we were not leaving early for an adventure!. As much of a planner as I am, I did leave some things to chance to be able to make decisions once we arrived. Mariam was always in contact via text or call (they have a US phone number) if we needed to add a reservation somewhere or needed assistance with anything. Having a house adds so much more to a vacation than just a hotel room. We will keep Costa Rica on our vacation list and definitely look at all of the house that Stay In Tamarindo manages when returning!

Perfect stay at Casa Leon! The home was well appointed, beautiful and very comfortable. Our concierge Mariam was extremely responsive and very helpful in booking our excursions. Will defiantly be back !
