You’ll keep coming back again and again!
This is my 6th season renting from Escape Villas. Each house has been uniquely beautiful and the high level of service and care is always this same- perfect. Before you arrive Valerie’s…
Thanks for another amazing few weeks
Just a note to praise your amazing staff. David ( and Valerie) make my job easy. I am so grateful for all their hard work. Attentive is an understatement, with quick communication and handling of every situation. Always ready and willing to help and go out of their way to make sure my guests are happy. Multiple transportation and excirsion changes over the two weeks all came together seamlessly. David went above and beyond meeting two of guests at a tattoo place to help with translation. He checks in frequently and is a wealth of sound advice: from gas stations to waterfalls. He is professional at all times and his calm demeanor put my whole retreat at ease( especially me!).
Jorge and David made a wonderful team in the kitchen. The meals were creative, delicious and met the dietary restrictions for guests with allergies and sensitivities. Never an easy feat with 14 people. All guests raved about the meals, especially Jorge’s unique sauces for his perfectly cooked sea bass and mahi mahi. David is an artist. His floral arrangements and table decor complements the meals, deserts and yummy fruit drinks. lava cake and tres leche are the fan favorites. We asked him to make a floral arrangement for a guest whose husband wanted to send flowers for Valentine’s Day. He creatively designed a bouquet from his garden, much better than anything from a florist. Both Jorge and David are funny and easy going, they are able to work with whole groups hanging around the kitchen island and still make pleasant conversations. Some of the favorite foods and drinks include the pineapple basil, the cas, huevos rancheros, Caribbean chicken and rice, plantains, the grouper, mahi tacos, and the Costa Rican breakfast.
The house keeping staff is such a warm and hardworking trio. Their hard work does not go unnoticed, from the decorative animal towels to cleaning under couch cushions. Always a smile and a hello, these girls have the best attitudes even when mopping the floors.
Thanks for another amazing few weeks at our favorite home away from home.
You’ll hear from me soon for next year.
The Casa was the most luxurious and well-appointed house I've ever stepped in. Every view, every angle, every square inch - perfectly curated for relaxation! The kids constantly used the pools. The adults relaxed, swam, drank coffee, and enjoying the scenery. Having Marco cook us mouth-watering and fresh food every day made the vacation go by so easily. Not only was the food delicious (like better than a restaurant delicious), but he was so friendly. Not having to cook meals saved us a ton of time in the kitchen and gave us hours more time for relaxing. And the wildlife! While swimming in the big pool, a friendly sloth visited! Three types of monkeys in the trees overhead! Scarlet macaws flying by in the evening, and iguanas peacefully sunning themselves. The town itself was a few minutes in one direction, and the beach was a 10 minute walk in the other direction. But why walk? David, the concierge, arranged vans for us whenever we wanted. He had surfboards and boogie boards waiting for us under personal tents at the beach. Also, David was a huge help with excursions. He helped us plan our meals around travel time and told us what to pack. He knows everybody, so the whole country is only a phone call away for David. I could tell he genuinely loves his job. He's very proud of his work and of Manuel Antonio. We'll be talking about this one for decades. You'll love it too!
Beautiful and huge!
This house is spectacular and huge! We were in awe of the beauty of the building, rooms, views, and location. The staff are always around cleaning and maintaining the house. Chef Hairo…
I would rent this again in a heart beat!
I almost do not want to write a review so everybody does not flock to this absolutely magical place. It was clean, well maintained, and laid out. The wild life was abundant (and loud at times). We loved taking our coffee to the top sun deck in the morning and watch the world come to life. We had a chef (Marco) who was absolutely amazing (the kids said his French toast was better then their great grandmas we won't tell her). We had a group of 10 with 5 of them being vegans. He did the best job of taking that into consideration and making a meal work for both groups. The check in process and checkout were very simple. Our point of contact was David and he was super nice and helpful (even with our stupid questions). Valerie helped set up our excursions and did an amazing job with that. It was a great experience. Thanks for being awesome
