Great vacation and entertaining home

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our son's wedding rehearsal dinner at Casa Britto. The house was superv. The heated pool was enjoyed by our guess. The house overlooked the valley and the views were amazing. The caretaker did an exceptional job in attending to all of our needs. The only regret that I have is not having stayed longer.

Thank you Antonio and Marta for a most enjoyable stay.

Casa Britto - A lifetime of great memories!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I got married on April 18th, 2015. We decided to accommodate all my cousins and extended family at Casa Britto (12 adults and 4 children) for 4 nights. We also held our pre-wedding family dinner at Casa Britto for 40 persons, catered by the chef recommended to us by the owners Antonio and Marta. Everything was perfect! All our families rave about Casa Britto and the lifetime of fantastic memories they have from their shared time there, and the pre-wedding dinner! Antonio and Marta took care of every detail, with excellent support with logistics from Zeida and Pablo. We would highly recommend Casa Britto to anyone hoping for a similar experience. My family hopes to create more memories in the future with another stay there!

Beautiful home with great views

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautiful and the property was well kept and had great views of the valley. It had ample room for a full house of people including a 40 person family reunion BBQ which was catered by Casa Britto. The heated pool was the center of attention, it too had views of the valley. Overall we were extremely pleased with the house and we would definitely recommend it.

This was my second visit to this beautiful home, which was maintained maticulously. the property was amazing bith inside and out. I would highly recommend this property for a large or small group. It is centrally located which made it easy to gt around. The layout and ammenities were excellent for relaxation, and the heated pool and the view was absolutely the best I have seen. The owners Antonio and Marta were great to work with and very accommodating. the were available for questions and ensure that all was as expected. the maid Maria ensured that the house was clean on a daily basis. Agian I would highly recommend this property.

Amazing getaway

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Cash Britto with 7 of my friends for my birthday weekend and had a blast. I was greeted nicely and setup with taxi, emergency, and food contacts which were very helpful. The view from the mansion was beautiful and I used all of the memory in my camera with pics of the property. The heated pool was great when we all wanted to unwind in the morning. The location was great and Wal-Mart was just a 8min taxi ride and we were able to get everything we needed for our stay. I want to thank the staff at Casa Britto for a fantastic vacation and I will be returning.
