“Beautiful home, scenic location”
Reviewed 5 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Pros: Beautiful, clean home. Friendly, attentive staff. Transportation to and from airport. Vehicle provided. Clean linens. Scenic location. Safe, secure feeling. Kayaks provided.

Cons: Do not use laundry service, we had hundreds of dollars worth of clothing completely ruined. Spa was very strange - one manicure was in a lawn chair outside with bugs, the other was laying down in spa room but painful and polish was an absolute mess that had to be removed immediately. Cold shower in one of the rooms. Pool was too cold to use but it may have been the time of year. As it is an open concept structure, including washrooms, you would want to be close to the people you are sharing the house with. There is a catering service and pizza night but you must travel to town to purchase the necessary food. We would gladly have paid more to have the food provided. Provided vehicle broke down and headlights didn't work.

We made the mistake of tipping the staff we dealt with but at the end of our stay were given envelopes to tip staff we didn't know we were supposed to tip. Wish we had been made aware of this upon arrival.

No fault of the owners of the house, but the bugs were horrific. They were so bad it really affected our entire vacation. We have been home for a week and are still scratching and covered in sores.

“A Slice of Heaven!”
Reviewed 4 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Staying here was definitely one of our best travel experiences! The villa is beautiful, has pretty much everything you need, looks like new, and is spotless. The owner's and their son Phillip, who manage the property, clearly want their guests to enjoy their stay. They asked for our feedback on the activities we did and were very helpful in trying to locate my husband's suitcase that was lost on our flight. Plus, for our anniversary our villa was decorated w/ a flower pathway through the villa to a flower strewn bed, w/ candles, and chilled champagne! We hired Rosa to cook two meals, hired their boat charter to snorkel jade beach, used the provided car to explore the nearby towns, and enjoyed the pizza night with the owners and other guests; all of which I would recommend! I also had a nice massage and definitely the best facial I've ever had in the on-site spa (my skin still feels better even three weeks later!). Plus, we loved having our own private pool and place to sun! Finally, what we did the most was snorkel the reef between the docks and kayak out to the bigger reef close by. This place is definitely a hidden gem!

“Very unique experience”

We enjoyed our short stay here, but became kind of bored. Location is secluded and a bit of a drive to find a restaurant or anything else. So glad we had the vehicle to use. The home is well made and the pictures are exactly what it looks like. The pool is great! The kitchen had everything you could need. The showers were pretty cool made from stones with unique lighting. The direct tv was nice. The beds were fine and you definitely had to use the mosquito netting! We were eaten alive. Bites everywhere even using all the spray they provided. The view was nice, but really no beach to speak of. I guess we could have jumped in from the dock, but we didn't. There were kayaks but that looked like a lot of work.
I am not squeamish over lizards, but they were climbing all over the walls. Cats and dogs randomly walked in and out of the house. We didn't mind, except the one wet dog that was stinky wanted to lay in the living room floor. The cat killed a mouse and a lizard and left remains for us. Kind of grossed me out but was funny at the same time! Had Rosa cook one dinner for us. The beef kabobs. The food was excellent! We had to go buy it all though and pay her the$30 plus tip. Food there is very expensive at the grocery store. We bought lobsters from a guy in a little boat one day for 40$ we got like 9 tails. Cooked them ourselves. We had no issues with the house even when it rained very hard. The staff was wonderful! The only thing that bothered me was we were told to fill the vehicle up and keep it full. It was not full when we got it. We spent an extra $50 to fill it first when we got it. We did tell the owners about this, but they do not give receipts at the gas station. Then they kindly asked for a 10+% of your total stay for a tip at the end. The owners did have their driver take us all the way to west bay instead of just to the airport because of the gas issue. We very much enjoyed the property, but 4 days was 1 too many for me because I was bored just laying around.

“First Class experience at Brisa Del Mar.”
Reviewed 7 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We are just back from 11 days of heaven at Brisa.
The house is beautifully appointed in a fabulous, secluded location.
We cannot say enough about the staff - they take care of your every need.
Cooking by Rosa & Pearl is sublime. Bruce & Nicky are gracious hosts.
Dove for a week with Tropical Island Divers who also were great.
Again many thanks,
Phil & Patti

“Would rather keep this place a secret”

This is the kind of place that you don't want to rave too much about for fear of maxed out booking and increased rates. Nevertheless, we feel it deserves the credit.

Brisa was our first venture into the vacation rental space, having stuck to resorts in our previous travels. We left feeling like vacation rentals were the way to go, but would hazard a guess that this was not your typical rental.

Booking was easy and without issue. All of our questions were answered thoroughly and promptly.

We were picked up by the stand-in property manager in the vehicle that was to be ours for the week. He walked us through all of the standard things we needed to know about island and where to go on the island for necessities. He took us to Eldon's market for initial supplies on the way the the villa. Later in the week we tried Hiper Mercado and found Eldon's far superior in selection and quality.

On arrival the villa was all that we expected. It is simply beautiful. Gorgeous view, great pool, spacious bedrooms, and well equipped kitchen. The only criticism we had on the villa amenities was the barbecue. We would have preferred to grill most meals, but the BBQ was difficult to start and had hard to control heat. That being said, the minute we struggled with it, one of the staff appeared to help.

We began to joke that the minute you thought about something, a staff member would mysteriously appear to take care of it. The staff took note of your natural schedule and took care of what they needed to with minimal intrusion. It was almost unnerving.

Despite some potholes and winding roads, we did not find driving on the island difficult. The pre-paid cell phone that is included in the rental also provided an extra sense of security.

With respect to bugs we did not have the same experience as the previous reviewer. That being said we had read their review prior to going and brought a some ant traps that we placed around the kitchen. Also we ran into an American in the grocery store who highly recommended we buy mosquito coils. With both measures and a reasonable coat of bug spray at dusk, we were completely unaffected by bugs. For me in particular this was significant as I am normally eaten alive ( our last trip to Mexico I came back looking like I had chicken pox).

We did not have Rosa in to cook any meals, but we did do a pizza night with Rosa and Jessica. It was the best pizza we've ever had. If you go you MUST do this. We also highly recommend going to Cal's Cantina - great food.

I've saved our most favorite part of Brisa to the end.....the pets. Two of the dogs (Shaya and Tasha) adopted us for the week. As crazy as it may sound they had a big part in making our vacation what it was. They were great company and entertainment. We played coconut fetch, lounged on the deck and settled in during the evenings to watch a movie.

Brisa was the perfect place to slow down, relax and reenergize. Gorgeous.
