“50th Birthday Celebration”
Reviewed 6 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Casa Fantastica was great! The chef was amazing. The services provided in setting up our spa dates as well as excursions were wonderful. The house was beautiful. Maid service was great. The pool serviced everyday during the week. The only area for improvement: The Gym.

“Best House for a big group”
Reviewed 9 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We recently returned from MA and had a great vacation. We were a group of 6 adults and 11 kids ages 6-18. The house has everything you will need, everyone loved it. Great breezes at night, a beautiful view of the ocean and more than enough space with a awesome pool. The team at Escape Villas made sure everything was perfect. From Valerie and Ricky helping with the tours and whatever else we needed to the amazing chef Stefan and Jimmy who made five star meals that everyone ate. A millions thanks to the Escape team!!!

“Pura Vida Casa Fantastica!”
Reviewed 30 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Casa Fantastica is a place that gives lasting memories right from the moment you walk in the door and see the wow-factor infinity pool overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Living amongst all the wildlife, including daily visits from monkeys, toucans, parrots, iguanas, and even a sloth, is beyond words. The house itself is spectacular with the open setting, and our large crowd of 20 was comfortable throughout. Our chef, Hairo, is such a great and friendly guy, making absolutely delicious meals every day. This is a vacation spot that will be hard to top!

“Hits and Misses”
Reviewed 22 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We had a large group of 14 and the size of the property was perfect. The chef Stefan was also great. However, the rooms were outdated and one room in particular had sewerage problems. The room smelled awful. Also, the common areas were not air-conditioned and it was nearly impossible to hang out without being drenched. Some helpful suggestions would be to add a air-conditioner in the living area and adding some televisions in the rooms.

It was great having your group at the house. We're glad to hear you enjoyed your time for the most part except for a few things. Here in Costa Rica many of the houses have the open floor plan in the common areas. I should have showed you better how to get the cross breeze going so you'd stay cooler, sorry about that. Thank you for telling us about the sewer smell coming from the bathroom. We were able to get our crew on it and fixed the issue so there wasn't any bad smell anymore! Stephan is quite popular with the guests. When I ask guests about some of the highlights of their trips nearly all of them mention having a Chef! Thanks for the review, hope to see you all again soon! Pura Vida.

“In awe ”
Reviewed 19 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

This house is amazing and like none other I've visited. Though, the best thing about this house was the chef. Hairo and his assistant were simply amazing. The food was better than any 5 star resort food I've ever tasted. They were so fun and had the coolest personalities of any of the locals I met. When I return, I will want them and will not be happy unless I get them... Trust me, I am a lover of good food and these two will leave you in awe after one bite...
