You will love this private 1200 sq' suite in my modern Costa Rican style home. 1 King and 1 queen bedroom each with their own private ensuite. Large modern kitchen/DR/LR; Huge, private balcony overlooks tropical garden yard & pool. A tranquil retreat within a 7 min. walk to beautiful beach and grocery shopping.


My 'Costa Rican paradise' is a charming up-and-down Tico-flavored, Colonial-style duplex of North American quality. It is set within private and serene tropical gardens which are surrounded on three sides by natural jungle. Your private 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom unit will be the upper level 1200 sq ft suite. The good sized pool is wonderfully refreshing in the tropical heat and the Bar-B-Q pit is a great place to visit while cooking the fish you caught earlier in the day. The large modern kitchen has everything you will need and all linens and towels are provided. Your suite has an 8' x 30' huge private balcony overlooking the lush tropical gardens. You may even spot howler monkeys in the fig trees and you will see iguanas for sure.

Dostupno gostima

You have private access to, and use of the upper 2 bedroom, 2 bath, fully self contained 1200 sq ft upper level suite. You will also have access to your large private balcony, and the pool and firepit/Bar-B-Q pit in the back garden.

Interakcija s gostima

I am happy to interact with you.... or not,..... as you wish. I will certainly be very happy to greet you when you arrive and assist you with orienting yourself to the area during your stay. Of course I will also see you off when you leave. There is ample literature available in your suite regarding things to do in the area.

I do have one very sociable and lovable Chinese pug who spends time in the yard as well as in my main floor suite. He will love your company if you enjoy his. He enjoys the beach but is NOT allowed in the pool.
I look forward to sharing my little bit of paradise with you and will do everything I can to help make your visit enjoyable..

Ostale napomene

This is a very quiet, peaceful and tranquil retreat. As we are surrounded by jungle, you will hear the sounds of the local domestic and wildlife on a daily basis and you will likely hear the charming sounds of Spanish church music in the distance on weekends. Iguanas, hummingbirds, local squirrels and other forms of lizards are common and fun to watch. The local Ticos are very friendly and happy to help. Spanish is the main spoken language by the locals however most Ticos know some english and it is not difficult to communicate. If you bring your unlocked mobile from home, you can insert a Costa Rican sim card and have phone communication very cheap.

Please note that no smoking is permitted on the property inside or out.

We rented this property in June 2017 during and we were absolutely thrilled with our choice. Leslee is a very responsive owner who was always available to answer any pre-trip questions that we had. She was very timely with her responses and got me all the information I needed to be comfortable with the trip. Leslee wasn’t going to be there during our trip so she arranged for us to meet her property mgr Corby who was great. She met us exactly when she said she would and gave us a great tour of the house and property (including showing us the two paths to get to the beach and the grocery store) The house itself was outstanding and pictures really don’t do the property justice. Wonderful open feel, two bedrooms, kitchen with the basics (coffee maker, blender, pots pans, full size fridge, etc) A/C in the bedrooms and the living room which was great when it got really warm but often we would just open the screen and windows and enjoy the breeze! The two highlights of the house for us were definitely the balcony/porch and the pool. The balcony/porch was our "go to spot" to just sit and listen to all the different sounds of nature in the early morning and late evening. The trees directly beside the balcony were a hot spot for so many colours of butterflies we often joked that we had rented a house in the middle of a butterfly conservatory! The other unexpected treat were the fireflies which were abundant in the evening and a hit for the kids! The pool was a refreshing way to cool down in the afternoon. The fact that it was covered was wonderful because it meant we could swim with the kids without having to reapply sunscreen. The property itself is really nicely situated with a true 5-7 minute walk to the beach through a well-marked trail (or 10 minutes if you choose to take the road) I could go on for many paragraphs about the beach – Playa Hermosa is simply beautiful. We would spend our mornings there and often felt like we were the only people there. The waves were relatively small and seemed to be just the right size for our 3yr old and 7yr old to enjoy. There were many good restaurants along the beach. A 5-minute walk from the house in the other direction would take us to the grocery store. It was relatively small but stocked everything we needed to make most of our meals at the house. We really enjoyed Leslee’s property for the week and I feel like staying here allowed me to truly understand the Costa Rican saying – Pura Vida! Thanks Leslee!

Thank you so much Chris for your lovely review. I am so glad you enjoyed yourselves. So nice to hear that the pool was used and enjoyed by your little ones too...they are darling. I truly hope that perhaps one day we can all meet personally at the villa so we can get to know each other more. You were a pleasure to host!

I went during the rainy/off season and found the beaches in the Guanecaste region to stay sunny most of the day. Playa Hermosa was small & quaint with lots of good restaurants. Leslee' s villa is beautiful - not too far from the beach, grocery or bus stop. I had a great time & would love to return. Just remember, in Costa Rica, either no A.C. or wall units (No central air so feels different) and WiFi is sketchy. Highly recommend this villa and Playa Hermosa!

Thank you Tabetha for your review. I am glad you enjoyed your 2 month visit at Guanacaste Gardens and would love to have you return. Just want to point out that Guanacasta Gardens DOES have individual a/c in each room as well as fans and windows that open for those who prefer the natural air. Yes, CENTRAL a/c is rare in CR due to the high cost of power. Thanks again for your visit and I hope to be able to host you again in the future.

We were 2 couples staying at Leslee' accurately described tropical paradise for 3 weeks. The layout of her place is spacious and perfect for 2 couples. Overall we were very satisfied with everything we expected, based on what we had read and the pictures on Airbnb. For us, there were was a disappointment regarding the pool. It now has a roof over it and is mostly in the shade and we were expecting a sunny pool with warmer water. I cannot however emphasize enough on the absolute beauty and serenity of the pool and yard. The pictures barely give it justice. Also, if you happen to be a bird watcher, we identified at least a dozen bird species just spending time on the upper balcony. Binoculars are a must! The sounds of monkeys and birds all around. Very magical. Rocky, the pug, is a loving, well behaved dog. For us, the bbq pit was not a good solution. We are used to a propane bbq so our host kindly lent us a portable propane bbq. We really appreciated that. Leslee took the time to give us proper orientation, including a tour of the area, so we could quickly familiarize ourselves to the surrounding neighborhood. Leslee asked for feedback to enhance her offering and we definitely provided her with a few tips, one of which being to supply folding beach chairs for guests as none are available in Playa Hermosa, which by the way, is a beautiful beach. Leslee also arranged a group outing on a catamaran for a sunset cruise. We appreciated the group discount and for sure the wonderful experience. Leslee was very accommodating and always addressed any issues that arose to meet our needs.

Just spent the week of Christmas here with another couple. All of Leslee's pre-booking communication was very thorough. She was very helpful with local activities and places to dine. A gracious host. Her place is very inviting, large and spacious. We spent every morning on the patio listening to the Howler monkeys (catch them early -right at sunrise most days), and even saw a family in the trees just a couple minute walk from the house. Her backyard is a beautifully landscaped tropical garden with a clean covered pool. The beach was just as advertised, about a 5 minute walk and very nice. A great local, family friendly beach. Would come back again for sure.

Thank you Judy. It was so nice to meet all four of you. You would be most welcome back here anytime. A large troop of howler Monkeys spent an hour in the trees in the garden just after you left. I was thinking of you sitting at the airport at the same time and wishing you had been here to see them so close. Thank you for your feedback.

The neighborhood is nice with a short walk to the beach. Leslee did address all issues. Guests need to know about the water situation.

Thank you for your feedback Rebecca. The water rationing for the area is only a very recent situation and I understand is due to the recent drought over the past few years. I have never experienced anything but one short water shutoff when they were doing a municipal repairs for a few hours one day. This can happen in any area/country. However. as we discovered while you were there, the Municipality has recently been shutting off the water only at night between 9pm and 6am.... an attempt to conserve/ration without excess inconvenience. They are not always on the hour so some 'pura vida attitude' may be required at times. Hopefully this is a temporary issue but in the meantime, I will inform guests that it would be wise to have some water saved in containers (which I will leave in the villa) in case of an emergency. Because of this recent issue, I also plan to install a holding tank as soon as possible for water storage so any municipal activity should not be a problem for the house in the future. Thanks (URL HIDDEN) was nice to have you.

I was here with my husband and 12-month son, and we had a great time. The accommodation is the top floor of a duplex. The suite has its own entrance, a balcony, two bedrooms (each with a bath), a living room, and a fully equipped kitchen. As the previous reviewer mentioned, the pool is refreshingly cool (but not too cold!), the beach is very close by, and you can spot monkeys and iguanas right outside the windows. Nearby is the beach (7 minute walk) and a grocery store, as well as the various tour agencies and restaurants at Playa Hermosa. Playa Hermosa itself is lovely: fine sand, gentle waves, not too busy, and we went early one morning and lucked in to seeing sea turtles hatching on the beach and making their way to the ocean. Magical. PH is also quite close to other nearby towns, and with a rental car we were able to take easy day trips to Palo Verde, Brasilito, Llano de Cortes waterfall, and Playa Coco. Highly recommended. Enjoy!

We just got back from a week at Leslee's aptly named Tropical Paradise in Playa Hermosa, and our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. We watched monkeys swing from the trees while eating breakfast on the back deck, and our daughter loved playing in the pool, which stayed refreshingly cool despite the tropical heat. The beach really is just a short walk away, and the water was perfect for our 4YO to play in without our having to worry about big breakers or rip tides. It's easy to rent kayaks or paddle boards, or to schedule a snorkeling or fishing trip with one of the many tour operators on the beach. Getting to know Leslee was an unexpected treat. She was always on hand for questions, showed us where to buy groceries nearby, helped us arrange trips wherever and whenever we wanted, and made us feel very at home. The house and grounds were immaculate. The kitchen/dining/living room floor plan is open and spacious, while the 2 bedrooms have their own baths, affording tons of privacy. The house has A/C, but we quickly adjusted to the heat and since we spent all day in our bathing suits, we only really needed it in the bedrooms at night. It's generally pretty easy to get around in Playa Hermosa if you don't speak Spanish, but if you are looking to learn the language, we found most people to be very welcoming and patient with our attempts to communicate with them in their native language. And we could use US dollars pretty much everywhere, so we never had to exchange our dollars for colones. In summary, we would recommend Leslee's Tropical Paradise without hesitation and would go back in a heartbeat!
