About Leeana Yonkers

My name is Raymond and I bought this property because I love to body board, shoot photos of nature, and learn about new cultures. I love to spend time in Cost Rica with my friends and family. I have two dogs and I love to BBQ and walk the beach. I have owned this property for over 12 years, and it is one of the greatest places in the world.

When I am not in Costa Rica, I am in Lake Tahoe at my primary residence skiing and coaching at Squaw Valley. In the summers I enjoy hiking and water skiing in Tahoe.

Leeana Yonkers purchased this house in 1996

Why Leeana Yonkers chose Playa Grande Estates

The house has a great setting that you just fall in love with plus is a great area for a vacation home, nice, clean and safe.

What makes this house unique

Ocean views, sunsets, surfing spots, the great gray sand beach, the ocean breeze, everything is just amazing.

Beautiful property! Clean, comfortable and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Our trip was amazing! Not only is the property well kept, safe and very clean...the staff (housekeeper, night guard and gardener) were exceptionally friendly. The housekeeper, Culma, did most of our grocery shopping, cooked all of our meals and cleaned...after we tried to help her, she made it clear that she was willing to help and/or take care of us because we were on vacation! Loved her! Also, the masseuse was absolutely spot on if you love deep tissue massages. Marcos, from You Are Costa Rica, taught my husband and son to surf. He was not only amazing at surfing himself, but patient and kind in giving lessons! Lots of fun!! We will be back for sure!!!

Amazing vacation! We will be back here!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had an amazing 9 nights! The house is beautiful and the beach is right at your doorstep. The staff - Zulma, Randy and David - were wonderful. The house includes everything you need for a relaxing vacation. The infinity pool is gorgeous and all the landscaping makes the house feel like it's own little resort. Everything in the house was in working order, well kept, clean and very safe.

Don't miss out on all the hidden extras - such as the bakery truck that comes twice a week!

This area of Playa Grande feels very private and secluded. You are close enough to go into Tamarindo as desired for shopping or dining. However, Playa Grande does have some nice restaurants close by too - Hotel Bula Bula and Rip Jack Inn were two of our favorites.

Also make sure you book your surfing, SUP, etc through YouAreCostaRica. Mariana is very helpful and Marcos is a great teacher!

We will be back again for more of the Pura Vida!

Better than described.

  • 5 of 5

Better than described. House staff are exceptional. Location is perfect. Zulma's cooking made our stay extra special. Ask for her guacamole, salsa, and mahi mahi civeche. All were the best we've ever had. The house is extremely well maintained and location is perfect. Marianna at You Are Costa Rica provides all the bookings for rentals and excursions and will even deliver rentals to the house prior to your arrival. Wil-Mart is good for quick convenience groceries but Mega Super is best for stocking up and fresh meats. Pura Vida!

Peaceful, beautiful and relaxing but not far from activity. We would definitely return here. Everyone was very friendly and helpful.

Everything was immaculate.
