We just got back from a trip of a lifetime at Casa de las Brisas!!! We got married on the nearby beach and threw an amazing reception on the beautiful terrace of this incredible "jungle castle". From the roof deck all the way down to the back pool, there are natural elements that are unmatched. Everyone's room was big and nobody felt as though they couldn't get privacy when they needed it. We played pool, board games, and swam to our heart's content when we were not out adventuring in Manuel Antonio. Monkeys play on the terrace each morning and unicorns are spotted in the foliage. It's that magical!
It's walking distance to great restaurants and grocery stores that carry everything you need. Everything else is a short (read cheap) cab or shuttle ride away. You could walk to the beach but the ease in which to catch the local bus or a cab made it seem unnecessary.
18 friends and us spent the entire time in awe of not only the accommodations but of the amazing Escape Villas staff. Our hosts, Kim and Ricky, were welcoming, funny, and ready for any request or question. Valerie in the office helped us coordinate transportation and excursions with ease. And Marcos...oh Marcos...he and Freddy cooked us the most amazing meals with an entertaining flair that made going out to the local restaurants seem bland. We can not say enough about Marta and her team of beautifully radiant ladies that took care of us, our laundry, bed sheets, strewn items, etc all with a smile. Everyone made us feel like we were at home in paradise without a care in the world.
If you are looking for a company to rent with while staying in Costa Rica, you can not go wrong with Escape Villas. Their houses are amazing and their team is worth every penny and the experience was priceless.
Booked Casa de las Brisas to bring our family to visit Costa Rica and celebrate our wedding. We had heard amazing things about this villa from friends but it was even better than anticipated. Pictures are dead on to what is included. It has amazing views, a jungle feel and the big pool is perfect for monkey/sloth/bird watching. We were surrounded by animals everyday and the house accommodated our family perfectly including a baby and our grandmother. Though the house does have 5 levels and lots of stairs, we were able to put everyone in a room that worked for them. The house also has many different areas to not always have to be around people and have your own privacy. The staff went above and beyond in so many different ways. We decided to have our wedding night after our ceremony beach back at the house but wanted the dinner to feel different then the rest of our stay. Chef's Marcos and Freddy made great suggestions and made dinner feel special and fancier. They were all very genuine, caring and made anything happened that we asked. I would highly recommend this amazing villa to anyone interested, it was a perfect fit for what had envisioned for our special occasion.
My family and I stayed at the Las Brisas in March 2017. Chefs Marcos and Freddy made delicious meals for us, and were always very friendly. Marta and the girls always kept the house and bedrooms clean and were always smiling. Ricky from Escape Villas was always available if we had questions and would come to the villa if neede. The location is a short walk to the main street where you will find shops and restaurants. We were lucky enough to see 3 types of monkeys in the yard, along with 2 sloths and a toucan. The yard is lush with trees for the wildlife, and you can relax in the main pool while watching the monkeys. Overall, our stay was amazing, and I can't wait to come back!
Just left Las Brisas yesterday and we miss it already. The house is beautiful and absolutely kept immaculate by the hard working staff. Chef Marcos is amazing, every meal was over the top. His assistant, Freddy was also amazing, hard working and proud of their delicious creations. Both Marcos and Freddy are fun to be around and really made our trip extra special.
Wonderful stay in Paradise, this is how I would describe my week Casa De Las Brisas. The villa is absolutely stunning and the view from the top pool are breath taking. All the rooms were perfect and to wake up in the morning by the sound of birds and monkeys was the dream. It is the perfect place to chill out and let the world go by. The housekeeping and our cook Marco were excellent and the food he made was amazing.
The Villa is only a short walk to some shops and lots of restaurants and a short drive to the beach.
And yes loved the monkeys who visited the villa :)
