About Seda Sejud

Ex-entrepreneur from the corporate world marries oral surgeon. Oral surgeon retires to spend more time in Costa Rica. Now doing what we really love to do...specializing in the vacation marketplace. Loves include travel, villa interior design (importing furnishings and accessories from Bali); creating a perfect vacation experience for our guests and fixing things. We LOVE Manuel Antonio, and hope to have the pleasure of helping you with your vacation, villa needs.

Seda Sejud purchased this villa in 2008

Why Seda Sejud chose Manuel Antonio

To us, Manuel Antonio is as close to paradise as it gets. Our dream was to someday live in a tropical haven, near the beach and somewhere not too far from 'home' (the States). Having traveled nearly all the continents and vacationed on many of the worlds' best islands and tropical destinations, upon arriving in Manuel Antonio in November of 2003, we knew we had to live there someday. Not only was the place magical, the views heavenly, the beaches some of the best we've ever encountered but the friendliness of the people of Costa Rica, their emphasis on preserving their beautiful country, we knew when we arrived that we were hooked and that we wanted to make Costa Rica our next home. We found a gorgeous property with some of the best views we have encountered, bought it and started building. With Bali being another favorite destination of ours, we wanted to bring what we loved about Bali to Costa Rica--from the feeling of living outdoors to using natural materials and woods and stones to the top notch service they provide their guests. Our architect did a beautiful job taking our vision and in creating Villa Perezoso(named for the resident sloth), with every room having furniture and accessories custom built for the property and had it transported to Costa Rica. It was a labor of love building it from the ground up and we love the finished product as do our guests.

What makes this villa unique

Simply stated, our staff. From our charming house manager/concierge who always has a smile on his face and has lived in the area and worked in the hotel industry for over 20 years, to our full time chef, and our never in the way sweet housekeeping staff, you will be pampered beyond your imagination. You will never have to lift a finger here at Villa Perezoso as we will do all the lifting for you! Whether it's to.... go food shopping, clean up, preparing and serving the most tasty, gourmet meals, to the drink making, to advice on the best activities or local culture, to running an errand or getting that extra bottle of rum, our staff will take care of it all. And, the wildlife that you will experience at the Villa will make you feel as if you were in your very own National Geographic movie!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Amazing villa with the most amazing staff!

  • 5 of 5

The villa was more than what our family was expecting. See it online is one thing, but when you walk into the villa it is the best experience. The views are unbelievable, the house is so welcoming and there are no words to express how great Was to our family! Jose is the most amazing cook, Randall makes sure all you needs are meet and Ana is the best housekeeper. Randall set up great activities for us. We went zip lining, parasailing, snorkeling, tour of the national park and swimming in a waterfall. I would highly recommend the villa and can't wait to return!

Villa Perezoso far exceeded my expectations…and they were high to begin with! It is amazingly private, quiet and has spectacular views of the beach below…you can even hear the waves crashing. The rooms are well appointed and extremely comfortable (I'm a sheet snob) and the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. I cannot recommend it highly enough!!

Dream Villa for 50th Celebration

  • 5 of 5

What an absolutely perfect way to celebrate my 50th with family & friends. Villa Perezoso was a dream for location, services, luxury and food. We were able to do what we wanted, when we wanted - whether it was a day white-water rafting or just relaxing by the pool, the staff made it possible with such ease. An onsite pedicure or massage was no problem for Victor to coordinate with a days notice. The onsite chef - Ober was fabulous and made it absolutely perfect for those who all they want to do is decide what type of tropical drink you want for the day. The food was fabulous - such a treat!!

I couldn't have asked for anything more.

Our stay at Villa Perezoso was a special treat. We were made to feel at home immediately as Victor and Ober greeted us with a welcome drink and a great Costa Rican dinner. Every day was special. Our excursions were great, particularly the zip line and the hike in the national park. Victor made sure our guides were the best. Hanging out at the villa and watching the monkeys and birds was also very enjoyable. Our week at the villa will always be one of our most memorable vacations.

Perfect week

  • 5 of 5

I admit, I was a little nervous booking a vacation from a internet site and in a foreign country on top of that. I mean, what happens when you arrive and the villa and the area are not at all what you were expecting or what had been described to you?

Once we booked the Villa, Seda called to discuss the details and I felt better, but still, you know, long way off and in another country. After booking and finishing up the details including payment, Seda called and emailed information and I was feeling more secure.....but.

At the airport we were met by our driver to the Villa as Seda had arranged and I was feeling very good about the booking. Things were working out as planned and the drive was actually a lot of fun and very informative.

On arrival to the Villa, all of our hesitations vanished. We had arrived in paradise. I won't go into the description of the house and area as that has been done by other reviews, but I can tell you none of them give it justice. Even the pictures cannot convey the beauty of the house and views and if anything they are not descriptive enough.

While the villa, furnishings, views and wildlife are truly amazing, you will find the real value of Villa Perezoso is the staff. While it is an amazing villa, without them it is just another beautiful villa. It all works together for a perfect week.

I would not hesitate to book another week there next year and actually hope to do that.

The only thing I would like to see added to the Villa is the ability to take charge cards in order to reduce the amount of cash needed.

Owner's Response: We are ever so humbled by your review...thank you. And so pleased that you had a memorable time at our Villa Perezoso. We hope to see you next year! And, we will look into the possibility of accepting credit cards in CR for the food charges, etc. thanks for the suggestion.
