About Lenora Gates

We live in Vancouver and have enjoyed the luxury of having a vacation spot in Whistler for 15 years, which we successfully rented on VRBO when we weren't there skiing or golfing. In 2006 during our first visit to Costa Rica we discovered Playa Negra and heaven on earth. Now that we have completed the construction of our new vacation home (completed Dec 2012), we are enjoying the warmth of the costa rican sun and the hospitality that Costa Rica has to offer. We have built Villa Esperanza with much care and attention to detail to ensure our guests are beyond comfortable and not left wanting - the only problem is - you won't want to leave. The home is built to accommodate a single family or can be easily shared by 2 family's and or friends.

Why Lenora Gates chose Los Pargos

Playa Negra offered the perfect, tranquil beachfront get away - away from the hustle and bustle of a hectic life, while having amenities such as shopping and restaurants close by. Who could resist the incredible beach and the crashing waves.

What makes this house unique

Luxury Villa - View - Beach You only need to walk onto the terrace to check out the world class surf. There are endless activities in the immediate area depending on how active you want to be or, you can stroll the beach looking for the perfect seashell or the not so perfect one. Relax on the terrace or in the infinity pool and watch the most spectacular sunsets with the zen of crashing waves.......chill after a full day on the water or maybe some personal time with your fishing rod......

Heaven on Earth.....

  • 5 of 5

WOW! Where to start.....the sound of the waves rolling up on the beach as we relaxed by the pool or the infinity view of the sun sinking into the ocean, La Villa Esperanza has it all! From the time we first made an inquiry about spending our honeymoon in Costa Rica both Lenora and Mary made sure every detail was looked after from the time we booked until we flew back to Canada, and by far exceeded all of our expectations! A perfect location that allowed us to explore the local culture and take in activities during the day and relax in luxury as the sun set into the ocean in front of us every night! A honeymoon we will not soon forget.....Thank you!

Heaven or really close

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we were impressed and it just kept getting better. The house is amazing and is furnished not as a rental but as I would for my own full time home. although the restaurants locally are incredible we did not want to leave the house. sitting on the ocean with views forever and non-stop wave action just below the pool and patio, we bbq'd, cooked and hung out in the many area's the home offers. With little light in the area the sky at night is a show stopper with more stars than I can remember seeing except for a 7 day boat trip off Australia. What can I say, we had a vacation to take to the 70's chair for reflection and will be sending many friends here in the future. We will no doubt be back next year for two weeks for more great memories. Cheers! Jake & Rocio

All the comforts of home without the daily cares; a true get-away and most relaxing vacation ever! Was it because of the company we kept?

Or was it the unforced luxury and blissful privacy of this beautifully appointed home? Perhaps the large and exceedingly comfortable bedrooms with on-demand air conditioning? Very likely the infinity pool just meters away from the endless surf and the soothing sound of waves crashing onto shore.

Or was it because everything tasted better, especially the wines shared and the meals foraged and prepared together?

And if you don’t feel like cooking in, then there’s the exquisite food and ambience at nearby Villa Deevena; possibly the best cuisine and easily the friendliest service in all of Costa Rica a mere 5-minute drive away!

While our tans will fade, the memories will last a lifetime. Or until we return?

PS: Some of us had an amzing day of horse-back riding (incl. lunch) with Molly Allen Neiderberger - beaches, hidden trails & tropical dry forest.

Spectacular family vacation, can't wait to go back!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic 5 star experience at this 5 star home.

Really can't say enough about our time at this beautiful ocean front residence.

We stayed there Easter of 2013 and it was absolutely magical. The house is perfectly anointed with every high end amenity you can dream of.

Our party included my husband, myself our two young daughters ages 5 and 9 we also had both of our mothers that are in their 70's and my sister n law. The house was more than spacious with its 3 master suites and kids room. The bathrooms were gorgeous, huge and like everything else tastefully decorated.

The kitchen is a dream to cook in and has everything you would need from toaster oven to sugar.

The views from every level of the home facing the ocean are breathtaking. Every slider on the ocean side opens completely to let in the ocean breezes. Which reminds me to mention we had no issues with bugs or mosquitos which was one of my biggest worries since they love to bite me.

We had fantastic meals at every meal. Our property manager even helped us set up a home chef to make us a few Costa Rican meals served to us on the beautiful Guanacaste wood table on the patio.

I highly recommend having your first breakfast served to you in the home so you can relax and soak it all in.

The property manager was extremely helpful suggesting restaurants, excursions and setting up our transportation from the airport to the home and rental car that was delivered to us at the home. Since it was our first trip to Costa Rica we relied heavily on her suggestions and she did not fail us.

I would be remiss if I did not mention the Costa Rican people themselves. We have traveled extensively and I have to say the people in Costa Rica are among the warmest, kindest, friendliest most honest people I have ever met anywhere. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable everywhere we went. Never once treating us like tourist but more like old friends back for a visit.

We were chased out of two restaurants by the waiters trying to give us back our change thinking we over paid when really we were just leaving a tip. From the beach we continued our adventure to the rain forrest in Arenal and the people there were just as welcoming and warm. Really it was an eye opening vacation reminding us that no matter how little people may have or how much you should always live each day to th fullest and treat others how you would like to be treated.

As they say in Costa Rica "Pura Vida."

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review and we hope to host you again in the future. I have just returned from Villa Esperanza and have added another entire layer of furnishings and decor. You will see the first floor family & TV room has been added and a reading area on the 3rd floor. We continue to add to the patio and landscaping. We are truly committed to delivering that 5 star experience. Regards lg

What a beautiful home and town

  • 5 of 5

We really had a great time and were amazed by the house and the town.

I couldn't believe the delicious food at the restaurants that are on

the side of dirt roads. This was our first trip to Costa Rica but not

our last. We are thinking about returning in November this year.

The people in the town are very friendly and welcoming. We packed a lot of stuff but all you need is swimsuits for day and very casual clothes for dinner.

Make sure to get up early and take the road that goes to Lola's and you will see monkeys playing in the trees. This is a very remote town and is perfect.

Make sure you go to Kon Tiki the owners are very hospitable and the food is really good. We are use to all inclusive resorts ( you know dressing up for dinner) but this is the way to go. The house is amazing and the town is the best. Thank you for letting us stay in your home. We really enjoyed it.

Playa Negra Restaurants:

Our favorite is Villa Deveena for fine french dining in a secret oasis setting. For casual dining try Cafe Playa Negra or Hotel Playa Negra. A must do is lunch at Lola's which is only 5 minutes to the north in Avenallas.

Junquillal is a 10 minute drive (5Km) to the south and has a small but fairly well stocked grocery store for basic items, including spirits.

Tamarindo is the main town in the area and is 20 - 25 minutes to the north. You will find larger grocers, banks, many beach side restaurants, bars, surf and gift shops.

Gas stations are few and far between so you must plan in advance - Santa Cruz, 30 / 35 minutes south east has gas stations. There is not a lot to see here but there are grocery stores and basic services.
