About the property

4 bedroom, 4 bathroom Villa with Pacific View

It seems difficult to know what to say about the beauty of Costa Rica when one picture definitely speaks a thousand words. You may sit right here and stare at the Pacific for days on end. You may hike the rainforests. You may go deep-sea fishing and land that world record sailfish. Or you may just do it all. Whatever vacation means to you - relax, explore, shop, gamble, hike, scuba, discovering a new world or discovering yourself, the exquisite accommodations we offer at Villa Las Brisas are the perfect setting for your adventures.

Lodged nicely atop a beautiful plateau in the quiet beach town of Playa Panama, Las Brisas has been one of Guanacaste's top vacation villas for many years. During your stay, you will find luxury at its finest while putting your comfort first.

The villa, located in the gated-community of Vistas del Pacifico, is a 4700 sq. ft. Spanish-style ranch casa with three bedrooms and an upstairs suite that will sleep 6-8 people. The house features lush gardens, a private infinity-edge pool, outdoor rancho with hammocks and a relaxing veranda perfect for viewing the majestic sunsets over the Culebra Bay.

The interior of Las Brisas is elegant with a fully equipped kitchen with bar style seating, an eight person Spanish dining table, and spacious living area with a 48-inch flat-screen television and indoor/outdoor iPod stereo. Additionally, the villa has a full Wi-fi Internet connection so you can keep up with your friends and family back home and let them know how wonderful Costa Rica truly is.

The luxurious bedrooms feature only the finest mattresses and linens for your vacation sleep. The upstairs suite features a kitchenette for any quick needs and an outdoor balcony to savor the exotic sounds in the morning and the wondrous sights in the evening. Housekeeping is including in your stay to make your vacation even more comfortable. The vacation of a lifetime awaits!

About Preston Bonner

Villa Las Brisas was built at the turn of the millennium by Georgia native Phil Bonner. Best known for his legendary drag racing days in the 1960s for Ford Motor Company, Phil had many successful endeavors throughout life including home design as well as airplane + car sales. He loved the serenity Costa Rica offers very much. Phil passed away at the age of 81 in 2014 but his legacy is kept alive by his family, friends and fans.

Preston Bonner (pictured, left) is Phil's grandson and has managed the rentals for the villa since 2009. Preston has a degree in Political Science from Georgia State University and worked for the Atlanta Braves from 2011-2015. Passionate for music business, he is co-owner of Empire Reign, an artist management firm based in Nashville & Las Vegas. Preston is also a managing partner for a successful concert production company. Preston says Costa Rica is like a second home to him and is a well-versed ambassador for the beautiful country. Costa Rica will forever be a special place to the Bonner family.

Preston Bonner purchased this villa in 2000

Why Preston Bonner chose Bagaces

Near the end of the 1990s, I found this gorgeous isolated ocean-view property and immediately knew this is where I wanted to build my paradise home. Now, the towns and beaches are booming with prosperity as Costa Rica has become one of the world's leading tourist destinations. We are only a few minutes from the wonderful swimming beaches of Playa Panama and Playa Hermosa. Other fantastic beaches such as Playa Tamarindo, Playa Flamingo, and Playa Grande are only an hour away. The view of the Pacific Ocean from the balconies of our villa are awesome night in, night out. I couldn't imagine a better place in paradise to call home! -Phil Bonner

What makes this villa unique

I've always enjoyed waking up early in the morning and listening to the unique sounds of the howler monkeys in the trees and nearby jungle. The pool is extra cool in the mornings. There is nothing better, however, than sitting in the rocking chairs near dusk and watching the truly awesome sunsets light up the horizon of the Pacific Ocean in front of our eyes. Costa Rica is the gem of Central America with amazing natural sites and fantastic people. Pura Vida! -Phil Bonner

Most beautiful property and view I've ever experienced

  • 5 of 5

It doesn't get much better than this. The view, property, and service were all top notch.

Myself and 4 friends stayed up here for a week, and it was absolute paradise. The sunsets are unbelievable. The house maid took excellent care of us. Couldn't of chosen a better place to stay. I don't know what else to say - except out of everywhere I've been, this was simply the best, and most beautiful.

Excellent Customer Service!

  • 5 of 5

Had to cancel our March 2016 reservation, which is very sad as this places' reviews were so great and our family of 10 were looking very forward to staying here....

I contacted Preston by email on the Saturday to let him know of our plans and he was very quick with his return communication. He was very professional and returned our deposit in less than 2 days!

Family Christmas vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with our family of children in their 20s and 30s, sister, and mother-in-law spent a lovely 17 days at Villa Las Brisas during the Christmas/New Year's holidays. The house is exactly as depicted in the photos--well kept, lovely decor and beautiful views! Yoco, the housekeeper is a gem and Xavier the pool/gardener keeps the outside areas pristine. We rented a car and were able to go to a couple of volcanoes, along with river rafting and ziplining too. We also checked out other beaches in the area and ended up visiting Playa Hermosa several times because the snorkeling was great right off the beach around the rocks ---and it's a 10 minute drive. Our family loves to cook so this was a perfect place for us! We grilled lobster, shrimp and calamari in the outdoor rancho and made all kinds of tropical drinks. Everyone had a wonderful time! I highly recommend this villa and would love to return someday.

Perfect Birthday Celebration!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned home from two glorious weeks in a beautiful location overlooking a perfect ocean view. I chose Villa Las Brisas after looking at hundreds of houses on line. This was my 50th birthday celebration, and I was hoping for perfection. I was not disappointed! The villa is beautiful. It is decorated very tastefully, with all modern comforts! Every bedroom/bath was comfortable and elegant. We had WiFi and news on TV. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and cooking appliances.

The housekeeper, Yoco, was absolutely incredible. She kept the house very clean, made our beds while we weren't looking, and cooked our breakfast. Whatever we stocked for breakfast, she cooked it! When we bought fresh fruit, she had it sliced and waiting for us! She always had coffee ready! I found her invaluable! She does not speak English well, but we had fun communicating with her. It was not a problem.

We found the grocery store in playa Coco to be well stocked. As well as a smaller grocery store closer in Playa Hermosa. We grilled fresh fish several nights on the outdoor grill. This was incredible. The nights we chose to go out, we found Playa Hermosa to be our favorite. It was 10 minutes away with nice little outdoor restaurants and great food. Playa Coco is 20 minutes away with great souvenir shopping and authentic Costa Rican restaurants. We spent less time on the beach than I expected. We found the pool at the villa so inviting. We had visits from iguanas, parrots, and even a raccoon one evening. I found this fascinating!

Our 25-30 year old kids thought the place was great! We found adventures as well as relaxing at the villa. We went zip lining and ATVing! After they left, we had 3 couples join us. They all seemed very comfortable and thrilled. There was something for everyone. I definitely recommend having a rental car. Roads are very passable. Without a car, one might find it isolated. With a car, everything was within reach.

So the moral of my review: Villa Las Brisas can be any type vacation you want. Stay there, relax, enjoy the quiet and view! Explore a little, and enjoy everything Costa Rica has to offer. Either way, I don't think you'll regret it. We sure didn't! We are already trying to plan another trip there. Thank you Preston for helping make our experience perfect.

Playa Panama
Car: recommended

Playa Panama is a small, sleepy beach town, great for swimming. However, activities, restaurants, and nightlife can be found in nearby Playa Hermosa and Playas del Coco. Playa Tamarindo, one of the most popular surfing destinations in Latin America, is a quick hour drive from Villa Las Brisas
