An Amazing House in Paradise
"This luxurious residence helped us have an awesome end to an already great trip to Costa Rica. After spending 4 adventurous days in the Arenal Volcano area, we spent the last 4 days of our trip relaxing in this spacious home in Manuel Antonio. Framed in wall to wall windows, we had a perfect view from every location to see the mountains to our right, the ocean in the distance and every shade of green around us. Sunsets were spectacular! We hardly wanted to leave as it felt like a piece of paradise right there with an elegant infinity pool and the sounds of the water falling to a smaller pool below the main floor. Wildlife surrounded us with many species of birds to view such as hummingbirds,macaws, melodious blackbirds, and Tanager’s. It was common to see black iguanas, lizards and a variety of colorful butterflies. We were lucky to spot a group of squirrel monkeys climbing on a nearby powerline.
The AC was a huge plus in the private bedrooms but we opened up every door and window for fresh air with cross ventilation in the main area. Our girls felt they got the best room in the house on the bottom level. It was spa-like with the sounds of the waterfall into the smaller pool outside. All bedrooms were spacious and clean.
Vanessa was there to greet us answering questions, getting us food, making reservations for excursions, and kind of at our beck and call. She recommended Chef Xavier for one day to cook meals. The kids all still say this was one of the best days of our trip. They watched him prepare each delicious meal! Well worth every penny.
We are ready to go back…Pura Vida!"

"We had a group of six who stayed at this villa in late March 2016, and we really enjoyed our time there. We had two older couples and then our son in his 20s who came with a friend. We chose this location because you don't need a car and can walk to the town and to the local shuttle bus stop in about 5 minutes -- though the return trip is up a hill for a short time. The home is large with sweeping views of the jungle and the ocean in the background, and there is a nice pool often visited by monkeys. Our son and his friend said they saw more monkeys at the pool than at Manuel Antonio park.
My husband and I enjoyed the top bedroom, though people need to know that it is more of a loft so it doesn't have total privacy. However, we loved the view from up there out all of the windows. The attached bathroom has windows at the tree level, and these trees attract some beautiful colorful birds, so I did much of my bird watching from the bathroom! The bedrooms are also air conditioned.
The bedrooms on the other level are not as large, and the shared bathroom is smaller, so people should be aware of that along with the fact those upstairs need to walk through one of the bedrooms to get to the lower level (unless Jean has another way around this). We're all close, so that didn't bother us.
Jean was the ultimate host and was responsive and great to work with. We even invited him to join us for a drink one evening, as he is very interesting and well-traveled. He also let us store our bags there after we had checked out so we didn't have to take them with us to the beach that afternoon. We would recommend Villa Azul."

"Thirteen of us stayed at Casa Las Brisas, and all of us want to go back! It was by far the most enjoyable time we've ever had. The villa was everything we expected and more. Our chefs, Marco and his assistant, Jorge, were more than willing to cook anything we wanted, and they did! The food was five star, cooked to perfection, and always more than we could eat. No one ever went hungry! Marta, our housekeeper, was over the top accommodating and made us all feel special and so welcome. We became so close to them, it was really sad to leave. Our host, Ricky, scheduled whatever activity we were interested in, from ziplining to parasailing, to catamaran trips, you name it, we did it, and he made it easy. We all agree that we would love to go back. Not just to Costa Rica, but to Casa Las Brisas and the wonderful staff!"
