Spring Break at Casa Elsa

We have never stayed in a house like this one. It was wonderful. An avid bird-watcher, I really enjoyed sitting in the living room with my binoculars! The monkeys were really fascinating. We utilized the chef service 3 nights we were there and it was wonderful. Very laid back trip and the house was great. Awesome movie selection. Would love to enjoy this open-air house during the rainy season. All 4 bedrooms were a/c and private, which was great. Susan, our concierge, was on the spot! Will book this house or another through Manuel Antonio Vacations again!

Rainforest Slendor!

My husband and I had the opportunity to go to Casa Elsa with some friends. It is truly an engaging and magical place.

Upon arriving at the house we entered into the splendor of Casa Elsa and the Costa Rican rainforest. We were welcomed by our tour guide with plenty of cheer and information of the local area. As soon as she left, I recall looking at my husband and friends. We were all giddy in disbelief of our good fortune. Imagine, popping open a bottle of Champagne and toasting with your friends, all while sitting beside the Infinity pool beside your kitchen! Since it was dark when we arrived, we did not even know that the best was yet to come.

I awoke early to the sounds of the rainforest. While still lying in my bed, I looked out the wall of my bedroom to see the jungle waiting. Yes I did say wall – an entire wall facing the jungle was a glass sliding door. This is camping luxury style! Inspired to check it all out, I made my way through Casa Elsa.

Wow. While the house sparkles in the evening, daylight is when it shines. The ocean face is completely open with 3 levels which range from the lower forest, to mid-forest, and finally to the top floor with a stunning view of the rainforest canopy and ocean. Casa Elsa makes one feel as they live in the forest all while sitting in the lap of luxury. The vast amount of wildlife just metres away was astonishing. Monkeys, sloths, birds, iguanas, and NO bugs! Nature’s entertainment was always on display to fascinate us all.

It was hard to actually leave the house, but the local beach was worth it. You can have both solitude and a bustling beach experience. The beach is not overly crowded and offers everything you might want – umbrellas and chairs, small restaurants along the beach, stands to buy trinkets, parasailing, kayaking, boogieboarding, etc….

Our trip was amazing and inspired. Casa Elsa was large enough to allow us the luxury of spending time with our friends around the pool, having group dinners prepared in house by a local chef (very reasonable), enjoying the scenery and rainforest, and also have some alone time. Casa Elsa is a little part of paradise. We speak of our trip often and all dream of our return. Magic lasts!

pictures do not do casa elsa justice - the house is absolutely beautiful.
you have to see it to believe it!
there were 8 of us staying for a week and the entire time all of us couldn't stop talking about this perfect place.
we still do and we were there a year ago!
the house is huge - privacy is not an issue.
all bedrooms have an ensuite and are superbly located downstairs from the main living areas.
each bedroom also has a private balcony!
you are blown away from the second you walk through the amazing, huge front door!
the view is out of this world!
you are literally living in luxury surrounded by jungle (lots of wildlife!) w/ a spectacular view of the ocean.
the kitchen is fully equipped w/ everything and anything you could possibly need/want - including a pool that overlooks the ocean!
the diningroom and livingroom are stunning.
the lay-out of the house is perfect.
the owner/designer thought of everything!
the house staff are great - there for you when you need something, but very discreet.
carlos and petronella made our stay even better.
okay, enough about the house - i could go on and on!
the location is ideal.
short walk to the beach and town.
the beach is beautiful and the town is great.
everybody is really friendly.
nice restaurants and bars, supermarket etc.
we went out a couple of times and had so much fun!
for 3 dinners we hired a chef, deseree (sp?) who did all the shopping, cooking and clean-up. she was great.
there are tons of local activities and attractions.
some of us took full advantage (came back w/ wonderful stories of their adventures) while others had a hard time leaving the house!
casa elsa really is heaven!
if you are planning a trip to this area, you must stay at casa elsa.
it will exceed all of your expectations!
we can't wait to go back!

Commune with Nature

After the flight south to San Jose, it was a short hop over to the Pacific coast, and as we climbed out of the little 12 seater onto the tarmac at Quepos airport, feeling the soft warm tropical breeze, a magnificently huge Blue Morpho butterfly drifted before my eyes. It was a spectacular welcome, that right away let us know that we’d arrived in a magical land, more akin to something out of a Gabriel Garcia Marquez story, than the world we’d left a few hours before. It was a short drive from the tiny airport, and by the time we arrived at Casa Elsa, I was already under the spell and in love with this place. And Casa Elsa did nothing to break that spell.

As the great door of the villa swung open, revealing as it did, a place of true enchantment where the cold northern rules of houses simply didn’t apply, I was able to walk right into this land and make it my home. It was a home I would come to share with monkeys, birds, plants, tropical trees and sweet aromas. Whether relaxing by the pool, just gazing out to sea, reading under a palm, or watching a lazy Geko as I made coffee, the beauty of the place was omnipresent.

On a practical note, I should mention that both staff Carlos and Petronella are wonderful, discreet, courteous and always helpful. Also that the beach and Manuel Antonio Park are both close by and truly spectacular.

If you are in need of a place to restore your soul, look no further than Casa Elsa.
