“Simply Spectacular”
Reviewed 6 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Our whole experience at Villa Celaje was wonderful from beginning (arrived just as the western sky was colored by a beautiful sunset) to end. The villa has huge and simply amazing with great views in all directions through floor to ceiling windows and sliding doors. Every master bedroom (there were three) had its own balcony as did the dining area and great room to further enhance the views.
The villa was clean when we arrived and thanks to Tatianna it stayed that way. She did a great job of keeping the villa clean and supplying us with fresh towels and even doing our laundry when we set out the provided hampers.
The pool area was just perfect and kept the kids occupied and cooled off after a morning of touring. We were especially thrilled when a troop of squirrel monkeys joined us one afternoon to play around the pool. We stayed quiet and just watched their antics for at least an hour.
The staff was very efficient from Johan who stopped daily to see if we needed anything to Michael our great chef who even baked a birthday cake for our youngest traveler who turned five while in Costa Rica.

We would love to visit again. Thank you all.

“Even better than the pictures, if that's possible!!”
Reviewed 30 July 2014 for a stay in April 2014

This home is exactly as described: A Lavish, Luxurious, Ocean View Villa with all the comforts or home and much much more!

We stayed in the Villa with 4 families (8 Adults and 12 kids ages 4-15) and had plenty of room (actually we did not even use one of the bedrooms) The house was gorgeous and had the most awesome views of the Ocean and sunset that we could find anywhere in Manuel Antonio / Quepos. The pool was the perfect size for our group and outdoor kitchen, bathrooms and showers were so convenient and allowed us to have a lazy vacation. We HIGHLY recommend having a Chef come in to cook breakfast and dinner. Marlon and his crew were fantastic, friendly and their food and service were excellent. We especially loved being treated to some local fare - Yum! And all totaled at the end of our stay, food averaged $40/day per person. Very reasonable for filet mignon, lobster, fresh fish....... Can't go wrong. The housekeeping and laundry service was fantastic. We left our clothes in the am and when we got back from our excursion for the day, it was clean and folded. Nothing better than going home with clean clothes. Finally, Johan, our concierge, was terrific and he took care of absolutely all the details of ensuring we had a dream vacation. I really cannot say enough about how great he was. Every excursion he booked for us was top notch - Sailing, snorkeling, horseback riding, jungle hike, and zip lining. Because we were nervous about the zip lining with young kids, Johan arranged for the Zipline company to come to the house and walk us through their safety precautions. It really gave us peace of mind and the trip was AWESOME!!! Also, when I mentionedto Johan that the GPS in the car we rented was broken, he arranged to have someone from the rental company come and switch it out without my even having to ask. He stopped by daily and spent as much time as needed discussing all the wonderful adventures that Costa Rica had to offer.

All in all we could not have stayed in a better location and would love to go back some day. It is truly a special place and if you're lucky and up early enough you make get a treat and see some monkeys swinging in the trees right outside the pool deck!.

“Absolutely Amazing and Beautiful!”
Reviewed 21 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Our stay at Villa Celaje was exceptional and wonderful. It was home for 7 days and Johan, their personal concierge, took care of all our needs. His recommendations for all excursions were both excellent and fun. The breakfast and dinners that Marlon, the chef, prepared were out of this world and met all the dietary needs of our large group. It was a heartbreak to leave the paradise of our Costa Rican getaway. We will definitely be back!

“Beautiful house, Great staff and Great Views!”

Best family vacation ever! We feel so lucky to have chosen Casa Celeje and the guest house, we had four families with 12 children and 8 adults. The house and location was fantastic, amazing views. The staff was great, starting with Johan our concierge who took care of our every need. He made the arrangements for all of our excursions, including transportation. Everything he suggested was spot on and he checked in on us daily to make sure everything was perfect. We had reservations about taking our 4 year old zip lining, Johan assured us it would be OK. He had the owner of the zip line place come by the house to properly fit my four year old with a harness system, he assured us that our son would be safe while zipping with him or one of his assistants, we did it and it was great. Johan arranged for a private chef and staff (ABSI Chef Services) to feed us breakfast and dinner daily, they did the shopping for the menu, cooked it and cleaned up. A group of 20, and everyone enjoyed with no complaints, not an easy task. I can't say enough about the house and the staff, I highly recommend it.

“Amazing vacation - wouldn't change a thing.”
Reviewed 8 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Our stay at Villa Celaje was perfect. I absolutely loved it! We were a group of friends with our teenaged girls. Johan, our concierge took care of everything. Before arriving, we gave him a grocery list and all items were delivered and put away before we got there. He checked in with us daily to make sure we had everything we needed. The tour guides he recommended and booked for us for rafting and zip lining were prompt, professional, experienced and fun. Chef Marlon prepared delicious dinners for us and expertly catered to any dietary restrictions and then cleaned it all up! We loved each meal he prepared! Tatiana arrived each morning and stayed all day to clean up everything else as well as any messes we may have made throughout the day.
The location of Villa Celaje is perfectly centralized between the beaches, marina, Manuel Antonio Park and other activities. Watching the sunset from the patio and pool is beautiful, and sipping on Chef Marlon's margaritas while snacking on homemade chips, salsa and guacamole completed the perfect way to wind down after a day of rafting, zip lining, boating, sunning or hiking.
Villa Celaje is exquisite - It is large enough to accommodate many people without feeling cramped. The furniture is comfortable and the dining table easily accommodated our party. The bedrooms and baths are large and comfortable. Panoramic views from every room, ceiling fans everywhere, various decks and outdoor spaces for relaxing with coffee, chatting, sunning or watching the sunset make this home a perfect vacation retreat. Thank you Johan, Chef Marlon and Tatiana for facilitating a perfect vacation at Villa Celaje!
