Property description

Beautiful Ocean and Mountain views.
This modern, 5500 square foot villa, has everything you need to have a truely relaxing and memorial 'real' Costa Rican vacation away from the crowds. Secure, private, and relaxing. Located on 60 acres of your own lush jungle paradise.
Perfect for families, friends, or couples that just want to 'get away from it all' and enjoy.
The two story house has an oversized master bedroom on the upper floor with an oversized California King bed. The master bath, with tub and shower, is stunning. 3 sets of beautiful teak double doors open onto a complete wrap around balcony, perfect for stargazing and viewing the lights of the valley below. AIr conditioning is included for those who wish, but with the doors open and the fans on you'll sleep like a baby. There is an office desk and wifi for those who feel the need to keep up with the outside world.
The second and third bedrooms, though smaller, are equally as comfortable, with queen sized beds, air conditioners, and access to the balcony.
The second bathroom which has a huge walk in shower, is located here.
The fourth bedroom is located downstairs, and also has a queen sized bed. Although there is no air conditioning in this room, you really don't need it as a fan is all it takes to keep nice and comfortable.
A half bath, as well as laundry facilities are located adjacent.
The kitchen is modern and well equipped, with marble countertops, and a gas stovetop and electric range. All necessary appliances, plates, silverware, etc. are included. The stainless steel dishwasher and refrigerator/freezer will keep you going.
The dining area is quite comfortable with two tables that sit four each, and a bar with two stools.
The living area is also quite comfortable with two couches, a chair and a 42 inch flat screen TV with cable, stereo and DVD player for your viewing pleasure. That's if you can drag yourself inside long enough to watch something, as most guests just want to be outside at the pool area.
The bottom floor double doors open onto a complete wrap around deck and the beautiful infinity edge pool. The pool has a built in waterfall and swim jet package. It is the perfect place to watch the sun rise and set while enjoying the views with a cup of coffee or a toddy in your hand. There is ample seating on the deck for intimate conversation or partying with your friends. Jump in the pool or catch some rays on our comfortable reclining lounge chairs.
If your party is extra large there is an adjacent managers apartment that we sometimes use. Though not as extravagent as the main house, it is quite comfortable with it's own kitchen, bedroom and bathroom.

We can also arrange transfers to and from the airport in San Jose.

Attractions: Being midway between the two largest beach towns on the Pacific offers many attractions.
Jaco and Quepos offer the best restaurants and nightlife on the coast. Manuel Antonio the best beaches and coves. Los Suenos Resort and Marina, the best in all Central America, includes a world-class marina and championship golf course. The brand new marina in Quepos, Marina Pez Zela, along with Los Suenos, make this area one of the most wonderful bases of operation for sports fishing and snorkeling in all the world.
Adjacent to the estate is Sky Mountain Canopy, which boasts the highest, longest, and best zip line in all of Costa Rica. Paid admission to the canopy tour includes beautiful hiking trails and a real nice waterfall. We can walk, drive, or ride the horses to the waterfall. There is also a wonderful waterfall with 3 different pools (Tres Pilas) at the base of the hill. It is an easy drive and easy hike to these falls.
There are probably a dozen different beaches just a short half hour drive from the estate.
Some are perfect for swimming and some are world class surf beaches. All are great for picnics, walking, and watching the sun set. Playa Palo Seco, just outside Parrita, and Esterillos to our west, both have several little resorts with wonderful restaurants for memorial sunset dining. Parrita and Playon closer to the hill have many very good Tico restaurants for those who prefer the local cusine and culture.

We offer the use of our Toyota Prado Landcruiser (7 passenger) including driver, for only $150 per day (compare that to Budget or Alamo $150 per day w/no driver). You pay only for the days you need the car. You also pay for the gas. We will take you anywhere you wish to go or show you how to get there. If you have a larger group, we can arrange transfers with a very reliable local driver.

We know a lot of cool places to go and you just sit back and relax.

Driving in CR can be quite the stress-filled adventure, especially at night.

We offer our SUV and driver as an alternative to you having to rent a car.
A few reasons this works for some people:
(1) We pick you up and drop you off at the airport, no hasseling at the car rental
(2) We usually know where we are going, lol.
(3) Bless their hearts, the ticos are the worlds worst drivers
(4) Many of our guests tend to enjoy the nightlife and CR has just recently enacted very stiff DUI penalties so the guests would prefer to just sit back and enjoy the ride. You also just pay for the car the days you use it.
We can usually get you a more affordable rate on transfers locally then you can get on your own.

When you decide on the exact dates we will send you a rental
agreement. You execute the agreement and send it back to us.
We require a 50% deposit forwarded to us.
When the funds are posted your rental date is confirmed. The balance will be due ,and payable in US$ funds upon your arrival in Costa Rica.

Email us back and leave a call back number should you have any further questions.

Talk to you soon.

Keywords: Thank you for your inquiry into our vacation rental house, villa, estate. Our guests tell us they see more wildlife during their stay here at the estate than any of the tours they go on. It is a birders paradise and a wildlife lovers dream. There is usually a plethora of butterflies, birds of all kinds, monkeys, iguana’s, and other wildlife for your viewing pleasure. We have stables with 5 horses here on the estate and the younger people really enjoy hanging out with the herd. The estate is in the mountains a 30 minute drive to several beaches. Much closer to the estate there are several waterfalls and a major river. The estate is 25 minutes to Parrita, which is then 20 minutes to Quepos or 30 minutes to Jaco and 2 hours to the airport in San Jose.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Hola, We are Randy and Claudia Dains from Idaho, partners in Casa Brisas de la Montana, along with Vern Eames, also from Idaho. It is our goal here at Casa Brisas to make sure that you have the greatest experience possible on your vacation to beautiful Costa Rica. When you leave we want you to leave with a smile on your face and a treasure trove full of wonderful memories. We, like Disneyland, want to be known as the 'happiest place on earth'.

Why the Owner Chose Quepos:
We chose Casa Brisas de la Montana because of the absolutely stunning beauty and tranquility of the area. The local 'Ticos' are absolutely the best, most genuine people you will ever want to meet. Living here on 'the hill' is a dream come true for my wife and I.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Secluded, beautiful estate that is close enough to all the major tourist areas to make them easily accessable for a truly exciting vacation. But best of all, they are also easily escapeable for a truely relaxing vacation. You get the best of both!
