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

Wanted to stay forever!

  • 5 of 5

I can’t begin to describe what an incredible trip we had to Costa Rica and our stay at Casa de Vre! We had two adults in for surfing teenagers in the house was perfect for all of us. The surf right outside the house was great and the two adults enjoyed walking to the local hotels for a drink and a snack. The kitchen has everything you need and the rooms with air-conditioning is an absolute must in the Costa Rican weather. We would all absolutely stay again!

Zulma is incredible and we really enjoyed our time with her.

Beautiful property and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Costa Rica. Casa de Vre was better than the pictures show. From the moment we arrived we opened the sliding glass doors to hear the ocean waves outside. This property is steps from the surf and we spent many hours on the beach or relaxing in the wooden rocking chairs under the covered porch. The kitchen is well stocked, the rooms are air conditioned and each one had a private bath. There is also an outdoor shower! The pool and patio were lovely! We had Zulma make delicious meals for us a few nights and there was no better place for a sunset dinner! The house staff, Evelyn, Kenneth and Randy were wonderful! Leeana was very helpful and we recommend Marianna and Marcos at youarecostarica to help with bike rentals, tours and surfing lessons! Thanks to all for making our visit to CR so fun!

Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third time staying at Casa de Vre, and it's the perfect vacation house. It's very hard to find a house with an amazing pool, super comfortable accommodations, wonderful staff and just steps away from the most beautiful uncrowded beach. We love the mornings and evenings on the beach and always made sure to be out at sunset. Even the teenage kids would get up early to walk on the beach in the mornings. We rented surfboards and boogie boards for the week, and we would go out whenever we saw from the house that the waves were the best. It was nice to be able to walk down the beach for great tacos at the Taco Star, and we loved the plantains, guacamole and vanilla milkshakes at Hotel Las Tortugas. We also enjoyed eating local fish, rice and beans at Kike's Place and another favorite restaurant was Rip Jack Inn. Also, make sure to have Zulma cook for you at the house. It's really the best to walk out and watch the sunset and then have one of Zulma's amazing meals! One excursion we really loved was the horseback riding experience at Finca las Garzas. The farm is beautiful and they give you a meal, a ride on an ox cart, have you milk cows and see pigs, along with a horseback ride through their beautiful property, well worth it! The experience at this house can't be beat, and we will be back again for sure!

We had an AMAZING family vacation at Casa de Vre'!! This home is beautifully appointed and in an idyllic setting - we could not have asked for more! The beach, pool, amenities were perfect, the staff and agent (Leeana) were wonderful - and we arranged for a meal prepared by Zulma that was out of this world! This is THE PERFECT place for a beach vacation, I cannot say enough good things about it. Oh and the sunsets were extraordinary :) We will return.
