    Can’t say enough about this house it’s amazing. We saw so much wild life right on the deck more then we saw at the park. Home is gorgeous and would highly recommend it. If we return to Costa Rica we will be going just to stay in this house.

    Wildlife, Waves, and Waterfalls!

    Casa Luz was an amazing property! Our party of 7 thoroughly enjoyed our stay, there was plenty of room for all of us to spread out, with 3 decks and 4 bathrooms, and beautiful spaces both inside and outside. It was an easy walk into town, up the hill and through the town of Manuel Antonio, and there was a grocery store, Super Joseth, just a few minutes walk away. Mefi was professional and very helpful in setting us up with a fantastic rafting trip and coordinated a delicious meal cooked in the house by Desiree. We loved our time at Casa Luz, and would highly recommend! Hope we can return one day!

    Wonderful space for two families!

    Our families - four parents and four kids ranging I age from 8 to 12 - had an amazing stay in this house. It had everything we needed. The kitchen was well stocked, the downstairs was a perfect kids’ hangout, there was a little market only a block away, and we saw monkeys and toucans from the pool! I would highly recommend this house, thank you for a wonderful time!

    Excellent vacation home in a lush setting

    Stunning house and surroundings. Everything is as depicted and better. A few highlights include well equipped kitchen, comfy beds, great housekeeping service, professional and friendly concierge, monkeys and birds in the surrounding trees, proximity to beach and towns (Manuel Antonio and Quepos), no construction in the vicinity right now (therefore quiet), A/C in all bedrooms, ceiling fan in 2 bedrooms, awesome pool, pool/beach towels provided. Only minor issue I can think of - heavily chlorinated pool, so if you’re traveling with little ones don’t forget their goggles. Ours had some irritated eyes after swimming without goggles.

    Above and beyond expectations

    The house is BEAUTIFUL! The teak wood is gorgeous. It’s close to restaurants and all of the excursions, which is perfect. My friends and I (all girls) walked to dinner at night and felt totally safe. Also, Mefi was AMAZING. He and I were emailing back and forth for months finalizing all of the plans (originally a 10 person group that shrunk to 8 at the last minute). He was on call when we needed him. He was able to adjust to last minute emergencies (someone missed their flight and needed transportation). He really goes above and beyond. Chef Jenoir was amazing as well! We had calamari, guac, surf and turf (mahi mahi, jumbo shrimp, bacon wrapped filet mignon, parm risotto, veggies, and flan. Everything was delicious (literally wish that I had hired him for my entire stay instead of just one birthday dinner)! Also, the price was $42 a person (before tip) for 8 people. He and his sous were very nice. We actually went with them to Selina hostel/bar for drinks after. They were very polite and gentleman-like the entire time. They even called the cabs for us to and from. Also, we saw howler monkeys on the porch! They dropped sticks on us while we doing a photoshoot at the pool. Definitely recommend! 0 complaints!

    Relaxing and Tropical

    We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Luz. The place is large and roomy, and the jungle is your backyard. We saw a few white faced monkeys and large iguanas in the trees, and the monkeys even jumped onto the pool deck one day. It is hot and humid in CR, but the AC works well. Mefi the concierge was great, and helped us coordinate several activities. We definitely recommend staying here.

    Amazing Experience

    This home base for our trip was one of the best things we planned. Everything was so easy and relaxing, it really set the tone. We have returned home and funny enough, I was just on their website looking at what other properties they have for next time! My advice for others, take full advantage of all the services they offer--transportation, chef and tours. We were a bit on the fence, but it was really the best way to go. We booked stuff last minute while we were in the house and Camilo, our concierge, was fantastic and still made everything happen. Worth every penny! :)

    Great Experience

    We had a great 5-day vacation at Casa Luz with my family of 5 (kids 16, 12, 12). The house is amazing, and nothing better than drinking my coffee every morning on the deck watching the numerous monkeys frolic in the trees. Mefi was excellent helping book activities/restaurants, and the covid tests needed. 5 stars all-around.
