The estate is a private paradise nestled in the mountains 1000 feet above the Pacific Ocean. Enjoy THE REAL COSTA RICA in a magical place removed from the traffic, noise, congestion and related problems of vacationing in a total tourist environment. The estate offers incredible views of the Pacific Ocean and mountains, animals and birds, rain forest and incredible star gazing without city lights in a totally natural setting. The main house comfortably sleeps up to 8 people and includes an infinity pool with a waterfall and swim spa, modern kitchen with granite countertops and all stainless appliances.

We also offer at reasonable rates the use of our 7-passenger Toyota Landcruiser with an English speaking driver for all your transportation needs.

The host is fantastic. Randy was great with our kids, easy to interact with, and a fountain of knowledge for the standard Costa Rica stuff, as well as for rare opportunities, and places to eat. Thanks to him, our kids got to watch baby sea turtles claw their way to the ocean after hatching. You're just not going to get that without local knowledge and relationships, so Randy was an irreplaceable asset. The house is fantastic and a great place to unwind. It functions best as a retreat for the weary. Pick up a bunch of groceries and make your meals there, relax, and unwind. The house is a bit remote as a base of operations for getting out and doing stuff every day. There is a standard 30 minute drive over gravel and washboard from the house to the main paved road (could probably shave a few minutes depending on the type of vehicle you're driving). Once you leave the house, you're gone for the day. Very peaceful and relaxing for unwinding at the end of a long day though. No town noise or rambunctious holiday travelers. The house is not child proof for toddlers, so not really a place where small children can be left to run without supervision. Lots of wildlife around the house. We saw a toucan, iguanas, monkeys, lemur-looking things, lizards, countless birds, and more. Most from the back porch of the house. Every morning was an opportunity to see something new. Bottom line, the kids still talk about all the stuff they saw at Mr. Randy's house, and the fun they had playing with Mr. Randy. It was a great visit.

I don't know where to even begin! This place has been a really amazing experience, especially if you want to know how a real Costaricannense lives. Since the moment we arrived till this precise moment while I'm enjoying the pool Randy has been the best Host we've ever had! He made sure to ask everyday what are plans were and as soon as we decide he was on the phone making sure we got the best deals and best experience ever in Costa Rica! One of the days he personally took us to a waterfall and let me tell you I highly recommend it, he will climb with you, get dirty with you walking through mud, and even dive in to the natural pools with you! When I say he truly wants you to have the best time ever, he truly does go above and beyond! The house is beautiful, AC in every room, AMAZING AMAZING view, wake up to monkeys on the trees, he has a lady that will cook, wash, and clean up for you as well! Overall this house lives up to its expectations and more!

The photos don’t do justice to the picturesque views you will have from the Casa. Randy was a fantastic host and went above and beyond to make sure we got the most out of our time in Costa Rica. When we weren’t enjoying the fantastic pool or another amazing meal prepared by Magali, Randy helped arrange some wonderful excursions for us. The sunset boat cruise from Quepos is a must! We also enjoyed ziplining and a walking tour at Manuel Antonio National Park. The natural beauty of Costa Rica is unlike any place you’ll visit. It was a real pleasure to get to know Randy and to hear his passion for this beautiful country. If you’re looking for an idyllic and secluded location that also provides option of taking short excursions to the nearby attractions, this house is the perfect place.

The Casa is an escape like no other. After a long day of traveling, Randy instantly made our crew feel welcome. Upon arrival, he met us in the small town of Paritta, took us to the local market to purchase groceries, and led the way to the Casa. There is about a 30 minute drive to the Casa from Paritta up a steep dirt road. I would definitely recommend getting a 4-wheel drive vehicle with ground clearance. Once we arrived at the Casa, we were amazed by the beauty of the house and the view from the mountain. This secluded oasis is wonderful for swimming, relaxing, exploring nature, and going on adventures. We spent one afternoon horseback riding with Oscar and Randy took us zip-lining on Christmas morning! We saw monkeys on the property and picked fruit from the trees. We relaxed by the pool, cooked together as a family, and played cards outside each night while being serenaded by the sounds of the rainforest. Randy checked in with us and helped us carry out our plans each day. The experience that Randy provides gives you the opportunity to explore Costa Rica or relax and enjoy the view as much as you please. With 8 travelers in our crew, some of were looking for adventure and others wanted to relax by the pool. We all felt accommodated no matter what we chose. There are so many options of things to do and Randy helps you each step of the way. His charisma and love for this little piece of paradise is contagious and exciting. The experience was one that I will never forget. Thank you to Randy, Oscar, and Magally for a wonderful holiday that we will talk about for years to come! Pura vida!

Randy and Claudia were great hosts. They stayed in the attached house and we had the big house you see in the pics. The house and pool are even better than the pics. They took us horseback riding and to a waterfall with jumps into the 3 pools and were very helpful with local information and tips. There's an approximately 20 minute gravel road to traverse to get to the highway from the house so pick up food and drinks and anything else you'll need before arriving. We had a great time and would go back. Thanks Randy & Claudia!

Randy & Claudia truly made our Costa Rican vacation especially memorable. Casa Brisas de la Montana is a beautiful home, set far back from the dense tourist locations...very serene, very secure, very relaxing...almost like staying in our own private, luxury resort. All of their suggestions & recommendations were fantastic! "Would you like to do___?"..."Can we get you ___?"..."How would you like ___?"..."Let me call ___to set that up". Seriously, Randy & Claudia were always offering & seeking to do anything/everything to make our stay more enjoyable, more relaxing & easier. We loved the fresh fruit, the views & the meals that Magally prepared for us! The kids loved the horseback ride that Oscar led them on through the vast grounds & gardens. But, after polling the kids, the #1 attraction...swimming in the infinity pool, looking over the jungle & mountains towards the Pacific, and playing hours of pool volleyball. In hindsight, we never should've left the Casa! :-) In fact, I think the kids became more than a bit too accustomed to the simply outstanding attention from our hosts (e.g., "I'm going to ask Randy for ___"..."Randy, do you have...can you?". He never said no so coming home has been a bit of a rude awakening ;-)

Casa Brisas de la Montana was amazing start to finish. Randy and Claudia greeted us at the gate and were the most generous, friendly and helpful hosts I have ever met. Randy took us to some incredible local waterfalls and showed us how it was done, he's quite the daredevil! He and Claudia were so wonderful with all our kids it was like being on vacation with grandparents, the kids kept visiting their place to get treats! Horseriding with Oscar was another highlight, he had the horses ready every morning and the kids loved riding. He even brought us fresh fruit from the jungle which was pretty exciting for the kids, they had never seen some of the fruit he found. The house was fantastic, the master suite was awesome and the huge porch areas upstairs and downstairs were great for hanging out. The pool was gorgeous and we never got out of it. I can honestly say I have never been in a pool with such an amazing view. The location is pretty remote but in a great way, you really feel like your in the middle of the jungle and you get to see how local Costa Rican's live, no tourists in sight, except us! Randy and Claudia helped organise everything in regards to daytrips and any local information we needed and all their recommendations were fantastic, especially the Sunset sails. We were so sad to leave, Randy even got up at 4am to say farewell. We miss him and Claudia already and definitely plan to go back. Thanks for everything Randy and Claudia you are the best!!
