About Leslie Sandler
We moved to Tamarindo from the San Francisco Bay Area, with our 2 cocker spaniels, in October 2016 and love being here. After years of working for others: Nordstrom, Whole Foods & Macy's, I get to apply my people and management skills to help you have a vacation to remember forever.
Leslie Sandler purchased this Guest House in 2017

David and I fell in love with Mar Mirada for it's amazing 280° poolside views of Tamarindo Bay. Located high on a hill, we have some incredible mountain and valley views too.

Great place! Very quiet
Loved our “Casita”
This was our first time to CR and we can not wait to come back.
Leslie and David were awesome host and made us feel at home, the casita has everything you need to enjoy your stay. Def coming back soon!
Wonderful honeymoon and birthday experience!
We could not have asked for a more wonderful honeymoon. Leslie and David are the most wonderful people and hosts. The "casita" was exactly as described and more!!! The sunset appetizers were a true treat. The pool is wonderful and so relaxing. This was truly a wonderful place to stay.
What can I say, Perfect! Leslie and David were the perfect
Hostess and Host. We arrived in the dark from Liberia and got lost, couldn't read the signs. Eventually, called Leslie and she met us at a Hotel, what a relief!
The Casita/Cabina was perfect, very private, comfortable bed, all the cooking necessities, outdoor shower, Netflix, darling decor but most of all the salt water pool with amazing views!
We really felt like we were on Holiday! Away from the hustle and bustle of the great city of Tamarindo but not to far away!
It was my 60th Birthday and Leslie made me a gluten free carrot cake and David made me a beautiful frame. That I will treasure.as a reminder of a very special Birthday! Thank you very much!
What a perfect place to get engaged! I definitely recommend this place! I really hope to be back someday! Thanks again Leslie and David! Pura Vida!!!
We spent the time at Leslie and David's casita enjoying the pool. They were more than gracious, hosting two happy hours and giving us pointers for us to further enjoy our stay.
A great stay!
Perfect balance of city and nature
Leslie and David were amazing host. I’ve stood at many vacation rentals and by far this has to be my favorite spot. Not only because of the beauty of the home but because of the beautiful, loving, caring energy of the owner. The Casita is the perfect balance of city and tranquility. It’s close enough to all the restaurants and downtown bars but not in the middle of it all. Love the fact that we were able to have quiet time to enjoy nature and the beautiful sunsets. The pool and the outdoor seating area have to be my favorite feature of this paradise. David and Leslie have done an amazing job with their home. I would definitely recommend it and stay there again.
