  • WE LOVE CASA TOUCAN!!!!!!!!!!

    "This property is lovely, well maintained and has all the amenities that you would need. The views are fantastic and we woke early every morning to the sounds and in some cases the sights of monkeys. The home is indeed in the rainforest--so there are lizards, spiders and bats close to the home, so as long as you don't mind some indoor guests --this is the place for you. We personally loved adventure of the 4X4 drive up and down the mountain every day. The first few times were a bit unsettling , but we got used to it and it became a ton of fun for us and the kids. The pool was well maintained and clean. It is larger than it appears in the picture. It was also great that the home provides linens, beach towels and bath towels-- and has a washer/dryer to keep these things fresh. It was great that they had several beach chairs and two boogie boards, that were great for the kids. The kitchen was well stocked with great cooking utensils, pots and pans, glassware and dishes. It has a grill-- so we cooked in a few days after buying the groceries down the mountain at the BM. We took advantage of some close by adventures. We recommend spending time at the waterfall at the bottom of the mountain, visiting Playa Ventanas, and eating at the Jolly Roger, Bamboo Room and the The Baker Bean. We used the recommendations that are provided in the house binder to go zip lining (so fun, but not for the faint of heart), and snorkeling. We also visited and LOVED the Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary in Dominical. We cannot say enough about the beauty of the home and the surroundings. Uvita and Casa Toucan are an excellent choice if you are looking for an affordable and family friendly stay in Costa Rica. Here we had both relaxation and adventure. LOVED IT!!!!!!!!! PURA VIDA!!!!!!!"

  • Little piece of paradise

    "Staying in this wonderful house was an experience we'll remember forever. A large and open house with a lovely pool, right in the heart of the forest. And the caretakers, Grace and Juan, really made it special - Grace's cooking was a real treat and nice not to have to cook for ourselves all the time, and Juan was a great guide to the forest nearby. (We asked Adrian for a shopping list before we went which was helpful - and might be a good thing to provide to all guests) There is lots of wildlife walking right by the house - we saw a laughing falcon take a (harmless) snake just below the house, a Tayra climbing a tree, macaws, toucans and lots of hummingbirds and butterflies - even a turtle on the beach! Some of the fixtures and fittings (window latches, wardrobe doors) have taken a little bit of a beating from the jungle, but more than compensated for by the wonderful surroundings. And you should be aware that the sound of the ocean can be quite loud, which didn't bother us - but might be a consideration for others. I'd recommend a visit to Estacion Piro just up the road, and ask Juan to take you to the other part of Adrian's estate - which you might not find by yourself and contains some amazing trees. Really a nature lovers paradise and the pool was a real treat."

  • Best vacation getaway ever!

    "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!"
