“Close to heaven”
Our group rented Casa Paraiso for five nights ending april 4, 2014. Everything was perfect. We rented through Luxury Retreats. The on-site assistance from Dallas and her team was fantastic. The shuttle from the San Jose Costa Rica airport to the villa went flawlessly. It could not be any better. On arrival at the villa, Dallas was there to explain the features of the villa and attend to any other need. She was professional, attentive and very timely with all her responses, setting up rental vehicles, excursions and other items. The highlight was our private chef, Klaus Thalau. He was a true artist, 6 star food each day, made to perfection, menus crafted by Klaus based on our preferences, we had themed evenings. He is a humble man who clearly is passionate about perfection. 40 years of experience shows. The villa was very clean and in excellent condition, well maintained and with everything you could need. Daily housekeeping and personal laundry each day. Heaven is an understatement.
Response from the owner Hi, thank you for taking the time to write us such a thoughtful review. We appreciate your choosing of our villa and are really glad that you had such a wonderful experience - we hope you will come back and stay with us again one day or recommend your friends! Best regards from the First Class Villas Team!
The Villa was fantastic. 5 star accommodations. The concierge was very helpful and responded immediately to all our calls. One big reason we chose this villa was because of its location. There was so many activities close by. There were no hidden costs. I highly recommended this property.
Response from the owner Thank you!
“Luxurious and convenient”
It can be challenging coordinating a vacation for many people. We had those interested in the beach and those interested in adventure and those most interested in relaxing. This Villa was more beautiful than billed and our property manager, Dallas, did an excellent job of organizing transportation and trips as well stocking our kitchen with awesome foods.. relaxing? (check) This was the ideal property for our large group. It had everything. We loved it and will come back. Thank you!
Response from the owner Thank you for posting a review for us! We appreciate it! :) You are very welcome, we are glad you came to stay and had a great time!
If you think the pictures capture how beautiful this villa is, wait until you stay here. The Sunsets were amazing. We saw monkeys, birds, fireflies and so much more. Villa Paradiso is amazing. We had a party of six and never were in each others way. Will go back as soon as I can.
Response from the owner Thanks, we hope you will visit us again before too long! Take care :)
Casa Paraiso is the most beautiful home we have ever stayed in. The house was designed and furnished by a very talented architect. Everything about this home is first class, including the concierge, the chef, and the house keepers. The concierge even rushed us to the pharmacy when my 10 month old son had an allergic reaction to peanut butter! Perfect place to bring your family or for a kid free weekend with couples. We loved waking up every morning to gorgeous weather and the beautiful ocean as a backdrop to the house. All shops and restaurants are in walking distance as well. Couldn't imagine a more perfect vacation.
Response from the owner Hi Stephanie, thank you for taking the time to write this review! It was great to host you and your family for your stay here at Villa Paraiso and we are so glad that you enjoyed the home so much. I am also glad that you have now discovered the peanut butter allergy! That was quite a scare for the little guy. We look forward to hosting you again soon! Best regards, Donielle.
“Unbelievable - great location, great views, great people!”
We stayed for a full week in august and had an amazing time!! This was one of the first big trips that I took with my girlfriend with a bunch of friends and people that I knew before her...she was nervous, excited, anxious, and ready to meet everyone!(but did have a few reservations!) When we pulled in, we were greeted by the great staff and that helped her relax a good bit. The staff cannot be commended enough at how well they run the place and how accommodating they are to the guests. The house is located half way between Quepos and Manuel antonio and is perfectly situated to be able to go and see both. If you want to drive down to Quepos and go to El Gran Escape (little fishing restaurant) or the local liquor store, it only takes 10 minutes and is an easy drive! If you want to go to the beaches at Manuel antonio or to La Mariposa for a cocktail at happy hour it is easy as well and less than 10 minutes. (The rooftop pool at La Mariposa is great during happy hour and you can even see a group of monkeys that come to the local swim-up bar and hang out.) The best part of the house is the view from the infinity pool and pool deck. There is nothing better than sitting on the sun-shelf in a chair and looking out over the expansive pacific ocean... it is absolutely breathtaking and worth every penny that the house was rented for that week. The house is perfectly situated in the neighborhood and was relatively secluded when we were there, there was no house within eyesight of the backyard and pool area. Also, the outdoor shower was a "must have" for our sandy and salty trips back from the beach. It is also amazing how easy it is to go and do a day trip somewhere or an excursion. The staff handled all of that and made it so easy to sign up and pay for the trips. Not to mention, we had an awesome time with our three excursions that we did, all recommended by the staff: ATV tour, white water rafting, and a zip line canopy tour. There's nothing that compares!
Response from the owner Greg, it was an absolute pleasure to have you and your girlfriend stay with us. We really enjoyed meeting you both and hope that you will come back and stay with us again soon. Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We very much appreciate it and look forward to meeting again in the future.Thanks from the First Class Villas Team!!
“A Little bit of Paradise~”
The Villa Paraiso is most aptly named. The Spanish word for paradise, that's exactly what you think you've entered when you walk through the doors of this villa. Our party of 10 had an incredible time. The accommodations were first class. The house was elegant, yet very comfortable. Housekeeping took care of all the details, including our personal laundry, in a timely and very efficient manner. The highlight of our stay, besides the wonderful memories we made on our daughter's 30th birthday, was the food prepared with love each meal by our personal chef Klaus Thalau. First Class Villas is very lucky to have such a kind person and talented chef associated with it's properties. Our transportation too and from the airport was provided and arranged by our concierge, Dallas Boyd. If we needed something~they provided it. All and all I would highly recommend this property or any of the others managed by First Class. I'm giving them 5 stars for everything. If they had a star chart for wildlife sightings, I'd give them another 5! We saw monkeys, toucans, hawks, sloths, and more colorful birds than you could ever imagine on or near this property. If you get the chance to go to Costa Rica, the Villa Paraiso in Quepos is as good as it gets. Pura Vida at it's finest!
Response from the owner Hi, thanks for taking the time to review us! We certainly appreciate it and beyond that, are really happy that you all had such a fun time here. We know that for Klaus, it was an absolute pleasure to work with you, he loves what he does and especially when he´s working with such a great group of people. Awesome to hear about the wildlife spottings as well! You are more than welcome, please come back and stay with us in the future. Have a great week! :) - From the First Class Villas Team
“Best overall experience”
Cr First Class Villas staff made our wedding preparation and actual event a smooth process. We were able to enjoy our families and friends and not worry about a single thing during the event. They have a trustworthy network of professionals, from John the photographer, who is fantastic, to house staff, hair and makeup stylist and of course Klaus the Chef who is amazing!!! Everyone is very talented and committed to do the best they can to make your experience memorable and perfect. they make everything seem easy and things just happen without you having to ask. The planning was smooth and easy, working with Donielle was enjoyable and we got what we asked and they exceeded expectations in the execution, the decorations were amazing, the service impeccable and the overall ambiance was cozy and friendly, so our guests enjoyed 100% Working with Dallas was very pleasant, she accommodated last minute requests very effectively and once again, they have a solid network of people providing the same quality of service in the area so they can react to changes successfully. Dallas was there for the entire event and she made things happened seamlessly...we completely forgot about everything and felt as if we were at home... We spent 3 nights in Villa Paraiso
Response from the owner Hi Gaston, thank you for taking the time to write this review for us! We really appreciate it and it was an absolute pleasure to host you and your family here for such a special event. You were both a pleasure to work with and we could not have asked for a better group. We hope you will come and stay with us again sometime! Best regards from the First Class Villas team!
“Outstanding place for multi couples”
Villa Paraiso was a great set up for a group of couples. Each room was separate with its own bath. The common space was perfect for all to gather --- inside or outside. Loved the floor plan and architecture. Make sure you get a private chef. Makes for a true luxury vacation.
“Fantastic Rental Experience”
We stayed at Casa Paraiso, for one week with 4 couples in July 2013. The house was fantastic. It was exactly as described and the pictures were accurate. The house was designed with several master bedrooms, so no one was left disappointed. The house was a 20 minute walk to Quepos, but you needed a car to get to the Manuel antonio beach. The best part was our concierge, Dallas, she happily and expertly, arranged our chef, drivers, retaurants and activities. The only disappointment would be that the house didn't have any screens on the doors, so the doors were closed or the bugs were in.
