I recently got back from this trip to celebrate my 40th birthday with 24 close friends.

We all had a blast. The house is so much better than the photos online. The bedrooms are big and spacious - and they're spread out across the property. There were a lot of rooms to hang out - living room, rooftop deck, 3 pools, game room, patio. Cafe Milagro and a lot of the restaurants and bars are walking distance. Beach is a 15 min hike down the main road or the side street across Cafe Milagro. It's a hike up but you can take taxi or bus if you feel out of shape. Even though we went during the rainy season, there were plenty of things to do. Mornings are always clear so it's a good time to go to the beach and see the park. The house was so comfortable that even when it's raining, we can always find things to do - especially swimming in the pool in the rain. We brought games, guitar and karaoke.

The staff is amazing - very helpful and we all felt at home. Chef Marcos made us great meals - the biggest withdrawal from the trip was waking up to smell of breakfast every day. Thank you Marcos, Marta, Ricky and the rest of the staff for making our stay memorable and comfortable!

Thanks so much for choosing Escape Villas to celebrate your "40 Years Young" Birthday! And wow, kudos to you for having 24 close friends that were able to take the trip with you.

It's nice to hear that you felt at home in Casa de las Brisas. It's a big place, but we try to keep it feeling homey so that everyone in the large groups has a place to gather or take some time out for themselves.

Chef Marcos is a delight and indeed a welcome treat in mornings. We'll be sure to tell him and the rest of the team about your comments. Glad to hear you were still thinking about us when you opened that suitcase to clean laundry, too!

Thanks again and Feliz Cumpleanos from the Escape Villas Team!

“fun, relaxing, beautiful, convenient”
Reviewed 7 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

I travelled here with a large (>20) group celebrating a friend's milestone birthday. The property is well set up for a large group and we all enjoyed our stay here. There were nice views of both the ocean and the rainforest from multiple terraces. The place has a good mix of shared spaces to socialize as well as privacy. We felt safe and secure here. The housekeepers were great and the chef and sous-chef were wonderful.

“Fantastic House - Fantastic Location - Fantastic Service”
Reviewed 5 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

The House is amazing. The pictures do not do it justice. So many rooms to choose from, so many areas within the house to congregate, so many pools, such an amazing rooftop hangout. And monkeys, lots of monkeys. We were visited every day by howlers, by Capuchin, and by squirrel monkeys. There's also the local sloth.
We were looking for a big house that could accommodate our group of 11. Once we saw the great pictures of the house and realized how big it was and how inexpensive the per room rate was when averaged over the group, we knew we had to book this house. Booking this house was incredibly easy. Everyone I dealt with reserving the house was very polite and knowledgeable. The house comes with a concierge. Valerie, the concierge, worked with me to make sure that I had all the excursions we needed booked and organized. She answered my many questions, and walked me through the entire arrival process, what we could expect, and any other vacation questions we had.
Once we arrived, our host Ricky showed us around the house and explained the workings of the house. He also provided us with all the excursion details and receipts that Valerie had arranged. Ricky was there for any issues that we might have, to answer any questions we might have, and to be our local fixer.
The house comes with a Chef who you can have cook as many or as few meals as you'd like. Our Chef's name was Marcos. We initially thought we'd only eat at the house a couple of times but after the first dinner we were hooked. Marcos made breakfast for us every day and he made dinner for us every night except for two nights. The meals were absolutely amazing. They were all made from scratch and better than anything we could get at the restaurants. Do yourself a favor, ask for Marcos, you won't be disappointed.
The house also comes with a cleaning staff that cleans the house each day and on Monday/Wednesday/Friday clean your clothes. The cleaning staff was very efficient, incredibly friendly, and very nice to talk to.
We loved our Costa Rican Trip. We loved it all the more because of the wonderful house and because of the wonderful people associated with the house that made sure that we were well taken care of.
