Best vacation ever! Escape Villas is a full service, one stop shop. We were greeted upon arrival and given a tour of our vacation dream home. Chef Junior was already in the kitchen preparing dinner as we settled in to enjoy the pool and the views. Monkeys and iguanas were everywhere and the variety of birds flying by were incredible. Our accommodations were top notch and Miss Roxie kept everything clean and in order. Chef Junior created one fantastic meal after another! They booked epic excursions for us and recommended premium beach services at Mary’s complete with chairs and frozen drink specials. Our decade celebrations with four couples couldn’t have been at a better place. We hope to return with our children in the near future. I highly recommend Casa Samba!!
Outstanding property and even better service. Easily big enough for our group of four couples. Our Chef- Junior- far exceeded our high expectations. Everyone wanted to pack him up and bring him home with us. Highly recommend this company- easy to work with and more than accommodating!
This is a fabulous house in Manuel Antonio close to everything Manuel Antonio has to offer. We rented this home for 4 couples and it was an excellent choice as it gave each couple some privacy with bedrooms on separate floors - each with an attached bathroom. The 2 living areas were great for gathering, eating and having fun together - with amazing views of the water and monkey-filled trees. The best part of this rental was the service. Our concierge before the trip was great with communication, bookings and helpful tips. Upon arrival, we were greeted by our host with pre-ordered groceries and a tour of our home. He also helped us book outings during our stay. Then there was AMAZING Chef Junior that we opted to add to our vacation. Chef Junior was quit honestly the best part of my vacation!!! We never had to worry about groceries, cooking or cleaning the dishes - and I didn't even have to research restaurants. His food was FABULOUS and service A+! Additionally, daily maid service (and laundry) was included - again, the service was A+.
Junior the chef was amazing - would go back just for him - the rooms were great - the view was perfect
If your looking for a relaxing vacation where you are catered to and pampered, this is not the spot for you. It was a nice house, except for the plumbing issues that lasted half of the week. We couldn't use our bathroom and it was quite an inconvenience to have to go to the main house. If you don't speak the language and no one comes to meet the repair men to make sure all is taken care of and there was no follow up from our concierge which was disappointing. Not to mention flooding in your room which what I could only assume was sewer water did not make for a pleasant vacation. We made the best of it and had a great time with friends, definitely a lot of memories were made. It just wasn't what I expected and definitely not relaxing. Not my cup of tea. I'm more of a resort type of person. If your adventurous and like jungle living then you will love it. The people were nice and its a beautiful country but most likely would not go back. Dragging luggage up 52 steps and walking up steep hills to get to the main road is not my idea of vacation.
