For the positive, the place was great because of the pool, the A/C cause it was really hot at this time of the year and the enormous space inside of the house. I saw parrots (guacamayas) in liberty flying across to the beach for the first time in my life! It was everything that was announced in the post.
We had an absolutely amazing time at Casa Velas last week! Although Brigitte was out of town during our stay, she arranged for a neighbor to be in contact with us and meet us at the house upon our arrival. The house had everything we needed: well stocked kitchen, clean linens, pool towels, and a helpful handbook with clear instructions and tips for our stay. The views from the house are spectacular, especially sunrise from the master bedroom! We loved being able to walk to the beach, local restaurants, and markets. I highly recommend Casa Velas to anyone looking for a beautiful and relaxing home away from home in Costa Rica!
We had an amazing time at Casa Velas! Brigitte was a wonderful host made the booking and check in process very simple. The house has everything you will need to enjoy a relaxing vacation. The views are spectacular and the location is very convenient! We loved being able to walk to the beach, local restaurants, and market. We also made trips to neighboring towns of Jaco (20mins) and Quepos (40mins) for zip lining and finishing! I would 100% recommend Casa Velas to anyone looking for a home away from home in Costa Rica! Thank you, Brigitte!!
The place is lovely and clean and we spent there some nice days. Brigitte wasn't in town but she arranged that the neighbour was there to warmly welcome us. Thank you.
Wir verbrachten schöne Tage in Brigittes Haus. Da sie abwesend war, begrüsste uns der Nachbar sehr herzlich und gab uns Tipps betreffend Aktivitäten, Stränden usw. Vielen Dank
Esterillos es un lugar maravilloso, donde se pueden hacer caminatas por la extensa playa, en un ambiente muy lindo y seguro.
Casa Velas tiene todo lo que uno espera de una quinta de ensueño en la playa, donde se pueden pasar vacaciones con paz, tranquilidad y a la vez actividad en la piscina. El acceso es fácil y tiene la privacidad que se necesita para estar con tranquilidad y a la vez armonía con la naturaleza. Es amplia, segura, con todas las comodidades para cocinar.
Y para hacer la amalgama perfecta, la atención desde el primer día que contacte a Bigitte hasta entregar las llaves a Rob fue más que excelente. Pequeños o grandes detalles los solucionan de inmediato. El idioma aunque no fuera el mismo, en ningún momento fue un obstáculo. No dudaría en ningún momento en volver, recomendado 100%. Cinco estrellas no son suficientes para calificar la preciosa Casa Velas.
Más que agradecida con todas las atenciones.
I, my wife, and three kids (two younger, one older) stayed for a week and we loved every minute! The house is a perfect mix of secluded and right in the middle of where we wanted to be. Restaurants 5 minutes away, the beach is just a walk down the hill, and wonderful attractions within 30-45 minutes away.
The house itself was just what we needed. The pool was a *huge* hit with the kids and it was a perfect size. Brigitte made sure we were all set and after the initial introduction to the place we were all set. I would highly recommend staying at Casa Velas.
The house is amazing, private and it has everything someone need. The place and the zone are perfect to relax, it has many places to walk and neighbors are king people, near you can visit Playa Bejuco, Playa Esterillos Centro or Esterillos Oeste. I will come back soon.
Brigitte's place is lovely, clean, well kept, lots of amenities Location was great for us, perfect between Jaco (surfing/fun)20 mins and Manual Antonio (hikes/fun/nature) 40mins
The little town has a store with most things (Unless you want to cook meat) that you need and a nice restraunt that has very good food. We ate there 3 Times.
I would recommend Brigitte's place to all!
Brigitte was a great host and has a beautiful house. She lives above in another house and was readily available if we needed something but also non-intrusive when we didn't. The place had total privacy and it was the perfect getaway for our 20th anniversary. We could have done a lot more in the area but the place was so special that we didn't feel the need. Total relaxation with all the amenities you could ever want. Great wifi to stay connected yet private enough to soak in the moment. The beach was a 5-minute walk and absolutely beautiful. There is a little store in town that has most things you would need and a full grocery store 20 minutes away. A TOTAL WINNER!!!
This home was the perfect getaway in Costa Rica. It had the most fantastic view of the Pacific Ocean on one side and mountains on the other. Brigitte was a lovely host, and made us feel welcome immediately. The house itself was clean and comfortable, though we spent most of our time enjoying the outdoor space--the pool and deck, as well as a nice terrace off the master bedroom. The village of Esterillos Oeste is small, but nicely situated between Jaco (about 20 min) and Manuel Antonio National Park (about 45 min). The village has a small grocery store, a fruit stand, and a local man who sells freshly caught fish from a cooler, so we had everything we needed. In hindsight, it was nice to be off the beaten track. We were able to fully relax here--nice and quiet, with no crowds, even during Semana Santa (Holy Week). There are a couple of good restaurants near the beach, a short drive down the hill. A bit of advice: it would have been helpful to have a four-wheel drive car, as the dirt/gravel road up to the house is steep. Would highly recommend this rental.
