“Totally Awesome in Every Way!”
Reviewed 17 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Thank you to Ricky Johnson and Valerie with Escape Villas.com, Chefs Harold and Jessica for unforgettable meals, Carmen and Raquel for keeping the house spotless and quickly becoming part of the family, and to Tony, our salsa instructor! These services were all arranged by Ricky Johnson and Valerie as part of the rental benefits. The home is surrounded by natural tropical forest and highly manicured grounds. The view was spectacular...we found it difficult to leave the house during the day! Groceries, shopping, great restaurants, and the National park are minutes away. We were so pleased with the private arrangement of each room. You need not go further to see wildlife! Tiny titi monkeys, tropical birds, and sloths are in view from the deck. Even though we have been to Manuel Antonio 3 times before, this house made it the best trip ever!

“Amazing 50th Birthday Experience”
Reviewed 6 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

I have traveled many places and this would be one of my top 3 vacations. First, the people that were on the trip was a mix of my girlfriend, family, and my extended group of friends that have been family to me. They made my birthday celebration special and memorable. Second, the country and the people. They were nice and embodied spirit of "Pura Vida".

Last but not least was the house. The pictures do not do it justice as the view is spectacular. (I suggested to the property manger Ricky that the pictures on their website.) After the bumpy drive to the the house I walked up to this beautiful oversized door and naturally landscaped deck. I entered this open air dining and living area that offers this amazing ocean view. As everyone arrived the reaction was the same... wow! We spent most of our time hanging out in the dining/living area when not out on tours enjoying the company. The natural, open-air setting and fantastic view could not be beat - it was very cool.

The bedrooms were very nice and each with its' own unique style and view. Listening to the rain and the jungle sounds was a great way to go to sleep. We watched the parade of monkeys between 3p - 5p, our resident sloths in the tree outside the poolhouse, and the variety of birds and bugs - all good.

We hired a chef and glad we did. Chef Marco became part of the group giving some people nicknames. We put music in the kitchen so he can party with us while cooking and was completely into it. We had 2 meals - breakfast and dinner. I would recommend spending the money for the chef service.

The house staff were unobtrusive and most of the time you did not know they were there until you returned from a tour and your room was cleaned. Laundry service was provided which was a nice perk.

The only negative was the elevator was out of order and not fixed on our trip. This would have been helpful for the one person with a bad knee. We had to change room assignments and for the rest of us, it forced us to climb the stairs which wasn't bad at all.

The cost was affordable in comparison to staying at a hotel. I would go back to Costa rica and rent a villa from Escape Villas. It was the best way for me to spend my 50th birthday.

Happy Birthday! Thanks so much for choosing Casa Vista Azul for your special day. We're happy that you found the house to be the perfect gathering spot for your group that came to celebrate you. And, it sounds like you had some other visitors - our monkeys and sloths are famous for crashing the party! We will be sure to share your sentiments with Chef Marco and staff as well. Birthdays come once a year...maybe we'll see you again next year.

Thank you,
Escape Villas and Vista Azul

PS
The elevator is being fixed...as we speak. Thanks for the report.
