A Piece of Paradise
I could not have asked for a better place to celebrate my birthday. The house and the grounds at Casas Capitan are absolutely breathtaking. The attention to detail is unprecedented.
Even before arriving Carlota and Alfredo took care to map out all my requests. While there, the staff made sure that all our needs were met and made us feel at home.
I am so glad that I selected this location for my trip and that I was able to experience this piece of paradise. It is a memory I won’t soon forget.
Thank you for being a dream guest :) The pleasure was all ours, we look forward to next time.
No better place for a yoga retreat!
There is something you should know before you book your stay at Casa Capitan: Re-integration into society after your trip will be very, very difficult. How will you go back to your normal diet after feasting on Chef Anna's fresh, healthy, 5-star level cuisine? How will you go back to napping on your own dumb sofa after you've had dozens of beach beds, hammocks, ranchos, and loungers to rotate through during siesta time? How can you possibly roll out your yoga mat in a plain old yoga studio after spending savasana drifting off to the sounds of lapping waves and gentle ocean breezes? How can you possibly be expected to manage your own schedule after the Casa Concierge has ensured that your every need has been attended? Answer: you can't. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't try. So go ahead, book a vacation at Casa Capitan. But don't say I didn't warn you!!
Casa Capitan --unplug to recharge
We have visited Casa Capitan over 5 times now and I can't say enough good things about the place, space, mood and vibe that Carlota has created down there. It just seems to keep getting better! Just wanted to say thank you for sharing the wonderful space that you created down at Casa Capitan. You have done a wonderful job of creating a mood, vibe and feel down there that really have a positive impact on peoples well being. So just wanted to say thank you and let you know that I really appreciate what you have accomplished down there.
Muchas Gracias Carlota,
My husband and I held our wedding at Casa Capitan in January and we cannot sing enough praises for Carlota and the Capitan estate. It was the most incredible and "smooth" experience and a perfect set up for a wedding! Casa Capitan is a one of a kind paradise with an incredibly peaceful and tranquil atmosphere. I just can't compliment Carlota enough on what an amazing job she has done to create such a beautiful and unique space (even the beautiful photos don't do it justice!). The grounds and the beach in front are stunning, the staff is so friendly and efficient, and Carlota and Jaymie were incredibly helpful with recommendations, etc. Carlota even recommended my wedding planner, Courtney, who was absolutely brilliant. Both of our families stayed at Casa Capitan and Casa Java for a week surrounding the wedding and everyone has voted this their favorite vacation of all time(-; Thank you Carlota and the Capitan estate staff who made our vacation and wedding so perfect! We hope to be back soon!
AMAZING CASA CAPITAN!!
We had such a wonderful time there. Your house is beautiful!! It was the perfect place for our family to be able to just relax together. Jaymie helped us so much. We couldn't have done it
without her. She really helped set everything up. To the charter flights, excursions, quads, taxi's and she made it all so easy for us. She was wonderful! We took surf lessons, zip lined and did yoga. I have to say using Carmon Air for our charter flights from San Jose made the trip so much easier. They were there waiting at the airport to pick us up and take us all to their airstrip. There was no wait time and they really took care of us. Definitely the way to go! We enjoyed having Davin and Pablo with Canape Catering cook for us. Can't say enough about his delicious food!! It felt like we were at a 5 star resort eating 5 star food. He plated the food beautifully at every meal and served us at the large dining table that held all 16 of us! Having your girls cook us breakfast and Davin for lunch and dinner was a dream. We all can't stop talking about our trip. It was so amazing! We all hope to make it back again. Thanks so much for making it special for us.
"True Pura Vida: The Magnificent Casa Capitan"
"True Pura Vida: The Magnificent Casa Capitan"
It is quintessentially eco-chic with unparalleled beauty and remarkable attention to detail. Its ability to accomodate 14 people (seemingly effortlessly), including one in a wheelchair, meant there was something for everyone. We surfed, jumped waves, went for long walks on the nearly deserted beach, swam in the beautiful private swimming pool, took a yoga lesson at the private yoga pavilion in front of the ocean (also perfect for a massage), found quiet reading spots in the comfy cabanas, sipped amazing coffee in the many coffee shops, dined in topnotch openair restaurants, danced to live music at a local bar, and each night watched the sun set into the Pacific Ocean. - Ahh, Exhale :) -- We travelled from San Jose by private bus via ferry and endured the bumpy patch to get to Santa Teresa, but it was well worth it! Santa Teresa is distinctly quaint - like an old beach town from a 1970's Hollywood movie, filled with surfers & yoga enthusiasts - yet surprisingly well-suited to anyone in search of a slower pace. I can hardly believe that such a place still exists. One note of caution, however - This is a cash-only town. Every restaurant, tour operator, quad rental or clothing store is generally cash-only. The odd place that isn't, charges a premium. - The atms/Bank also charge a big premium and are not always well-stocked. Gratefully, everyone in town knows the Casa Capitan. At least twice, they let us return the next day for payment. Now, that's a vestige in today's world! One other note, while the property is not entirely wheelchair accessible, it is definitely manageable - thanks to the ingenuity of the management & staff. Mucho Gracias to all who help to make Casa Capitan Pura Vida including Soffi, Ismail, Augustina, Julie and especially the ridiculously talented and gracious, Carlota!
