“Casa Fantastica is drop dead gorgeous”
We were a group of 11 friends that planned a weeks vacation in Costa Rica. The highlight of our trip was our stay at Casa Fantastica. The Villa and the views were drop dead gorgeous. The pool deck area is where we spent the majority of our time. The views of the jungle and the ocean were spectacular. From the pool deck we saw a variety of birds, frogs, lizzards and every evening we had a group of squirrel monkeys visit us. In the mornings we would wake up to the sounds of Howler Monkeys echoing through the jungle. Traveling with a group was made very easy with the help of Escape Villas. They helped booked our private airport transfers and our tours before we even arrived. Ricky the concierge bought our groceries and was very helpful with meeting any of our needs during our stay, but the best part were the meals that were prepared by French Chef Steffan. Everything he cooked was fabulous and we couldn't wait until he prepared our next meal. On the last day we were there he even had a cooking class for us. Thank you Escape Villas for a wonderful vacation we will never forget.
“wonderful home away from home”
This Villa was wonderful. We had a group of 10 adults and 2 babies and it had everything we needed and then some. The view of the ocean and the jungle was spectacular from the pool and lounging area. Steffan, our chef cooked us amazing meals and was very accommodating to our needs. The maid service was top of the line as well. Ricky was always on call for us if we needed anything and stopped in regularly to make sure we had all we needed and to answer any questions we had. This is a top notch place to stay.
“Amazing house, in a gorgeous country.”
Casa Vista azul was an amazing house that I would highly recommend to anyone. The service was fantastic and Costa Rica is a and awesome place to visit.
“Ricky was amazing he made sure we didn't need anything throughou”
From the second we arrived our host (Ricky) was there to make sure we were taken care of. He helped us in booking zip line tours, deep sea fishing, and everything else including restaurant recommendations. Our house (Vista azul) had an amazing view. There was a pool complete with a pool house that had a full kitchen. I only wish we had stayed longer.
Response from the manager You couldn't stay longer, but you can always come back! We, and Ricky, will be here ready to make sure everything is perfect for you once again. Happy New Year from Escape Villas
Awesome place great location perfect service. Maids were terrific. I would recommend to anyone.
Response from the manager Thanks Jonathan! It's great to be awesome:) And, it's awesome that you had such a great time here with us. Pura Vida from Escape Villas
From the actually house with all its amenities to the view, this vacation spot is at the top of our List! This ultramodern, cozy house reconnected us with ourselves, good friends and nature. The cleanliness of the home was great; with housekeeping maintaining the home everyday, including our laundry. Our Chef Marco cooked us fabulous meals twice daily, with flare and wonderful presentation...whatever we wanted, he cooked! Our concierge Ricky checked on our needs almost daily, providing transportation, booking excursions and providing a flatscreen TV for the guys to see their Football. We truly were living like the big dogs! This house is well worth the trip to get there!!! Thank you for a great experience!
Response from the manager That's our goal...to make everyone feel like the "big dogs"! The Escape Villas team will pull out all the stops to make sure your trip is all you hoped for and more. We're glad you had a great experience and took the time to tell us so. Pura Vida
“The Name says it all!!!”
Casa Fantastical is just down right beautiful!!! Period, end of story!!! I would recommend this house again, again!!! Every room is beautiful. When we arrived it blew past our expectations!!! We have housekeepers everyday (who even wash our clothes) and they were almost invisible as they worked during the day. We had a personal chef - Marco - who I believe to be the best chef in Costa Rica. Every dish was excellent and beyond tasty!!! He went to the market every day and picked up fresh items. This 8 bedroom, play area, media room and fabulous living space was colorfully and just drew you into the rooms to hang out. The best part was the walk in infinity pool!!! Have mercy!!! The pool and the view to ocean make the whole house!!! What I loved least - pool wasn't exactly clean had to ask that it be swept and the bugs drove me crazy but that's not the houses fault. Overall. Loved pool, loved my room and it view, loved Marco, and the steep steep driveway allowed me to excersie (there's even a excersie room)
Response from the manager Thank you for the ultimate compliment - a recommendation to others! Our guests' feedback is the best way to share the details and beauty of this home with future guests so we thank you for sharing your experience. Yes, the rainforest does come with some bugs that love to enjoy a dip in the pool, too. But, our staff is always at the ready to come scoop them up. Thanks again.
The view is amazing... Rooms are decorated beautifully... Our chef, Marcos, was The Best! This was a great place for us 5 couples.
Everything was great, except notification that the home is not comfortable, in anyway, for people with walking and ambulatory problems. A lot of elderly people would find the house and bathrooms very physically challenging.
Response from the manager Thank you so much for the "sensational" review. However, we are sorry to hear that details of the property layout and landscape may not have been communicated fully to you. This booking was not made by one of our in-house Escape Villas bookings agents. We have contacted the booking travel agency and they have replied with the following message: "Manuel Antonio is a beautiful national park, where villas are perched high on the hills within this gorgeous natural scenery, surrounded by pristine rainforest. Villa Fantastica was requested specifically by the customer since friends of the family, who were also elderly, had previously vacationed here and tremendously enjoyed their stay. The hilly topography of the villa was communicated to the booking agent, noting specifically that the first main bedroom was 18 steps (with a resting space in the middle) below the living area. We had understood that the clients were made aware of this before booking the property. We appreciate the positive reviews of the villa, but want to stress that under no circumstances was Villa Fantastica misrepresented in that all of it was on flat terrain, without steps." We at Escape Villas hope that your group was able to enjoy themselves and the property without incident. We have taken note about the bathrooms and will be installing hand rails as an extra measure to make sure the home is safe and comfortable for all ages. We appreciate your constructive feedback as it helps us to continually make upgrades to the home for future guests. Sincerely, The Escape Villas Team
“Casa Fantastica lives up to the name”
We had a fantastic time in this beautiful luxurious home. We found there was more than enough space for our 5 families/ 16 people to enjoy some privacy as well as gather together for meals and entertainment. We enjoyed the afternoon storms from the covered-open-air-decks and could have had more people and still been very comfortable. The view from the pool is amazing. The housekeeping staff and chef, Stephan were remarkable! Truly making the house the perfect place for our vacation. They were also very helpful directing us to local beaches etc. We were surprised at the steepness of the driveway, which was challenging the first day for our taxi driver, but he mastered it immediately. Really the only complaint we had was the condition of the road we needed to use to access our new home. It is beyond terrible and impossible to drive faster than 2mph without getting whiplash. The most enjoyable part was meeting the sloth, the gardener brought to us, or seeing the 3 different types of monkeys who stopped by on various days.
