We originally wanted to rent a home managed and represented by Mead Brown, a firm which proved to be unreliable and unscrupulous. We rented a different home (Casa Patron) through Stay in Costa Rica, a firm which was very responsive during the reservation process and which answered several questions and made various advance arrangements for us prior to our arrival in Costa Rica. They were also very helpful during our stay. The house was in good condition, had space for our party of 6 adults and 5 children, had nice pool and rec room, and the housekeeper was amazing. The rental price was a little high but we were there during what might have been a period of high holiday (Easter) demand. I recommend Stay in Costa Rica and urge caution in dealing with Mead Brown.
