Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family had a great vacation and loved staying in this property. It was large and comfortable for all of us, with lots of private space. We spent lots of time around the pool and loved the outdoor grill and terrific kitchen as we like to cook and hang out together. The beach is right below the house and is quiet with beautiful sand with some trees to get some shade. Waves are just big enough to body surf but not too big to wash you away! Lots of great restaurants right in the area, and played golf at a really nice course right on the ocean. Friendly people, great food and beautiful country. Can't wait to come back and would definitely stay at Casa Las Brisas again.

Pura Vida!!!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I were traveling through Costa Rica and knew we made the right decision to join our friends here from the second we parked our car. The view from the driveway is spectacular. The property is perched high the charming town of Flamingo. The views are just breathtaking....triggering on my relaxed vacation mode. Large kitchen with all the supplies you need to create fantastic meals. Love the pool-side grill. The pool is clean and the perfect temperature. My daughter and I shared a room with two double beds. It was comfortable and well appointed. In the morning, millions of colorful butterflies put on a show in a tree outside our room. Next to the kitchen is a large table and comfortable living room. Comfortable and spacious layout. The owner gave us great, helpful a small SUV rental instead of a little car. At her suggestion we went diving nearby and saw white tip sharks and huge rays. The amazing beach is very close. My daughter learned how to surf in Tamarindo...another short drive away. Then we took a road trip to Arenal Volcano and went zip lining, white water rafting and played in a huge waterfall. The private home and all the wonderful travel suggestions made this trip far more wonderful that we expected. Thank you!!!

AMAZING Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Costa Rica and it was AMAZING! This home was perfect! I couldn't of been happier when we stepped in the doors and this was also our first experience with Home Away. The home has 4 bedrooms and two are Master bedrooms. One Master is separate from the other three bedrooms and this worked out great for our family guests. The home was very clean and very spacious. The kitchen was wonderful and very well stocked. I have two young children and eating out every meal is impossible. We enjoyed several meals at home and cooked on the outside grill. The pool was perfect and kept my 4 & 6 year old entertained bright and early and after our daily excursions. The concierge that came with the house was also very helpful. I booked everything from day trips to back and forth from the airport and every reservation was taken care of. The homeowner recommended several trips and we did all of them since we spent two weeks. We went to the Rainforest, Hot Springs, River boat tour, Waterfalls, Zip lining, horse back riding and 4-wheeling! I would recommend this property to friends and relatives. The kitchen, beautiful views, pool, space and concierge made this trip very comfortable. Pura Vida!

Everything we imagined - and more!

  • 5 of 5

When we travel, we like to have some independence from the craze of the large beach resorts and all-inclusives. Privacy, calm and autonomy is just what we wanted in our Costa Rica vacation and Casa Las Brisas delivered all of that, but with the added hotel-like conveniences of high-end local recommendations for restaurants, activities and tours.

The home is beautifully decorated, clean and very comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked - my husband is quite the cook and we wanted for nothing as he whipped up our meals! - and we felt completely safe the entire time. Although we had no reason to question the safety of the area, the home's security system and safes in the bedrooms gave us the added level of assurance you want when you're in a foreign country and away from your own home.

The layout of the home is ideal for larger groups with its two large master bedrooms - one with a separate entrance for added privacy - and two other spacious bedrooms, but it is comfortable enough for a couple or a small group. The open floor plan of the main living area means almost every inch of the house boasts a stunning ocean view - just what you want when you're at the beach! And I can't tell you how much fun we had using the second floor porch! The view from that vantage point is spectacular - no better place to watch the sun set while sipping a fresh fruit cocktail :)

We rented a car and used it to get to and from some destination beaches and activities, but there are so many restaurants, shops, beaches and activities right in Flamingo that we walked almost everywhere. Strolling on the beach was a great start - or end - to each day, but when we wanted to take a more strenuous hike, there are a number of more challenging walks through the tropical hills of Flamingo that the owners had written out for tenants. We saw howler monkeys, exotic birds and huge iguanas on our walks - so cool! Right down on Flamingo Beach, our group surfed, paddle boarded, got massages, kayaked, and snorkled. But unlike some other beaches nearby, there were no obnoxious merchants interrupting us every 10 minutes.

The owners had an extensive book filled with menus, tour pamphlets, restaurant recommendations, and other helpful phone numbers and resources, which made our trip more enjoyable. We loved all of their recommendations and can't wait to return to try out everything we didn't have time for!

I would absolutely recommend this home to our friends and family. You will love it!

Perfect home-away-from-home with breathtaking view

  • 5 of 5

This property made our Costa Rica vacation comfortable and complete! The property has so many unique spaces that fit whatever mood we were in - from the pool (which took on different personalities at daytime and night) and quiet reading spaces (inside and out) to cozy spaces for relaxing with friends and cooking. We especially enjoyed the outdoor bar and lounges on the top floor. The location of the house made a convenient base of operations: it was simple to call a massage therapist to come to the house, to arrange transportation for side day-trips zip-lining and river touring, or just to run to the grocery store to stock up on provisions. The house had a great book of local resources and tips for getting around the region.

The views were absolutely amazing. I cannot overstate that enough. We got to enjoy mornings and evenings outside and felt like we really got to know the bay. Listing description completely accurate, property clean and well-maintained. Easy to work with management. I would recommend this property to friends and relatives without reservation - in fact, I have!

Amazing Ocean views!

  • 5 of 5

The views from the upstairs patio and bar are amazing! The house is very large and well equipped. You are an easy walk to the restaurants, bars and the beach! The house has a sound system with speakers everywhere so you can hear your favorite tunes no matter where you decide to relax and have a few chilli beverages. We would definitely go back!
