“What a week it has been! The teams warm smiles, big hearts, and gracious spirits made us feel at home as soon as we set foot inside the Villa Perezoso. We have truly enjoyed exploring Manuel Antonio, relaxing at the Villa, viewing the wildlife and of course indulging in Jose’s amazing meals. This vacation has far surpassed our expectations and I look forward to returning. Thank you. And, for all of the beautiful flowers and keeping our surroundings fresh. The meals were above and beyond..my favorites were the paella, tres leches, cheesecake, fish tacos, fajitas, tenderloin. I think all were my favorite! Muchas gracias for welcoming us with open arms!” The Schultz family, July 2018.
“What is there to say about Villa Perezoso? A lot. As the name implies it was an amazing place to relax, unwind, and just be lazy, spend time with family and take in all that the villa had to offer, which is much more than the amazing views, the sloths, yes, plural, we saw both 2 and 3 fingered, the monkeys, the toucans, the macaws. Villa Perezoso is about the staff that became part of our family. Their amazing love and pride in their country is infectious. Jose’s smile lights up the room with every meal he makes. Ana’s special touch, flowers of colors you love, her warm heart and special smile. Randall’s love of his hometown, pride in his country and love of making your family feel special while making everything happen quietly in the background. He was always ready with suggestions. We created amazing family memories all of which including the amazing people. It’s a sad day that we are leaving Villa Perezoso. So much love from this trip, so many amazing memories. We can’t thank you all enough. Pura Vida.” Ron and Tricia B., Florida, June 2018.
“Thank you so much for making our stay relaxing and enjoyable in paradise! Randall took great care of all our needs. We enjoyed all of the excursions. Every meal that Jose prepared was excellent. We enjoyed the regional cuisine. Muy bueno! Anna is so hard working and kept everything in fine order. The flowers she displayed each day were beautiful. We appreciated the daily Spanish lessons from each of you. All of you taught us so much about the region, the animals, the food, and life in Costa Rica. Our vacation was the best ever thanks to the wonderful staff and the beautiful villa! We will be back. Pura Vida”. The Duseks, July 2018.
“…I could have asked for on this trip. Everything was perfect. The house is beautiful and kept so clean. Every meal by Jose was just incredible and the cocktails were awesome. Each day Randall made our adventures so effortless. He has connections with everyone and is well respected with the locals. This home, this town, and country are just treasures. I really appreciate how environmentally conscious the owner is and the country as well. The place won me over when we were greeted with cocktails with metal straws. I love this place and hope to come back. But next time I will remember to always close my doors to keep the monkeys out! Thank you for everything”. Kim and Brad, Austin, TX Aug 2018
“There are not enough words to describe this experience! Put simply….amazing! Everything was incredible and top notch. If I had to rate our stay, I would give it 10 stars. The staff was friends, talented, accommodating, welcoming and very generous. Thank you for an unforgettable vacation. Thank you for making this very special. Costa Rica…stay beautiful! Pura Vida”. The Brooks, Houston, TX Aug 2018
“What an amazing place! But even more amazing people. Villa Perezoso is a gem of a home, but the real treasure is Randall, Jose and Anna! We will never forget how special you made our stay–as short as it was. Everything was absolutely perfect! We are sad to leave but we are excited by the knowledge that we will return. Muchas gracias and Pura Vida!” D. Dick, Aug. 2018

“It’s hard to know where to begin! The spectacular beauty of this home and area has been equally matched by the kindness of Randall, Jose and Anna. From the moment we walked in we have felt at home and this week has been everything we hoped for and more. Jose, your cooking has been the best. thank you for happily making such delicious meals for our large group. The kids will miss your pina coladas and we will all miss everything else (mahi, ceviche, guac, costa Rican rice all especially great). Randall, you steered us in the perfect direction every day! Anna, we will miss your friendly smile. Thank you for keeping this beautiful home so perfect despite having a houseful. Your flowers are beautiful and such a nice touch. Lastly, I could not end this without a comment about our very favorite activity this trip….monkey and sloth (perezoso) watching! This deck, pool view is the perfect spot to watch all the fascinating animals and it was so much fun to spend our afternoons relaxing and doing just that. We will miss these crazy monkeys and even miss the 4am howlers howl! Thank you for hosting us on this perfect week. We will miss your beautiful home and this incredible country. Pura Vida! With love.” Sarah E., April 2018
for making our first trip to Costa Rica so memorable, we could not imagine staying anywhere else, and we will recommend VP to our friends and family. Randall, we would have been lost without your guidance and recommendations. The tours were a highlight of our trip. Jose, your passion for cooking is evident in every meal you prepare. Your food is among the best we have ever had. Thank you for spoiling us everyday! Anna, your flower arrangements all over the house are so cheery. Pura Vida”. Erika M., March 2018
….also contains the most beautiful, kindest, most amazing people I’ve ever been around in all our travels. Randall, thank you for all you have done to make it look easy; Jose, you are a magnificent chef, belissimo! You don’t just make food, you cook and serve with your big heart. It is not just the food I will miss, we will miss you Anna, your beautiful smile and flowers made me so happy all day. Thank you!”, Jim H., Feb 2018
“We loved every moment we spent here at Villa Perezoso. Randall made sure we were pampered and cared for every moment from beach rentals, to transport, tours, towels. There wasn’t a thing he couldn’t do. The meals created by Jose were so delicious we will talk about it for years to come. What was our favorite? Lobster & Steak? The perezoso style breakfast? Poolside ceviche? Or one of the many slimming desserts? Everyone on the staff has been kind, friendly and so accommodating…to the towels shaped on the bed to the gorgeous fresh flowers every morning from Anna. We made beautiful memories here and cannot wait to return. Muchas gracias. Pura Vida!” Rachel W., Feb 2018
