“When we came the first time two years ago, I never thought I would get to experience such an awesome experience again. Getting to come back and spend a week here again has been amazing. It was a week that we lacked for nothing. Everything arranged when we needed it Ana, I have no idea how you manage to keep control of a group as large as ours bringing half the beach back here with us everyday but you kept this place so clean and comfortable and without sand! Jose, your cheerful greetings, great conversations, Spanish lessons and AMAZING meal creations show you are a chef, artist and magician. We had a wonderful week. Thank you to the whole team for everything!” The Rairdon family, San Antonio, TX Jan 2019.
“Thank you all for an amazing week in Costa Rica! We were here to have a great time reconnecting and celebrating the new year with our family. The time here at Villa Perezoso was beyond expectations. The food prepared by Jose was amazing. Nothing was a disappointment; we had a number of food allergies and he did so well making sure we could all enjoy each and every meal. Ana, thank you for taking care of our rooms; the wonderful towel animals made our day and your smile each morning brightened my day. Randall, thank you for all your planning. We will definitely come back to VP! Thank you for the amazing memories!” Gary G family; Los Angeles. Jan 2019
“Nine of us descended upon Villa Perezoso anticipating a Costa Rican Christmas but really not even sure what to expect. We were immediately greeted with warmth, friendship and a welcoming nature which made us realize that we’d come somewhere very special. Our “big family”vacation was amongst the best ever. Chef Jose, thanks for the exquisite meals. Not only did you feed us so well, you did it all with the biggest, most infectious smile! We cannot thank you enough for the beautiful meals; french toast, scones, fish tacos, grilled calamari, mani mani, the flame! And so much more. You are a talent in the kitchen and a total joy. Ana, your tissue flowers and swan towels are beyond impressive. You mad sure that everything looked beautiful and you did it all so seamlessly–I feel you are the unsung hero. Randall, you planned everything impeccably for us and made us laugh and relax; all 9 of us; for the whole week. It was truly a gift to just settle into VP and instantly be part of the fabric of the area. Randall, you allowed this to happen. We will be back to Costa Rica! It has captured our hearts and spirit; the beauty of the country, gorgeous beaches, the hills, the monkeys, the sloths and the way everything feels so alive in this beautiful place. Pura Vida!” The Racine family; Toronto, Dec 2018.
“Thanks for making this an unforgettable vacation. The views and beauty of the house were topped only by the food. Chef Jose prepared meals that are amongst the best I’ve had with fresh ingredients, that never disappoint. The only way to make up for the sadness of having to leave is knowing that means we can come back. Randall and Ana; thank you for making our adventures happen even with our messy, indecisive group. You made our stay feel like a true luxury experience. We couldn’t ask for a better engagement trip.” Tim and Danielle and friends; Ohio/Nevada/Indiana, Dec 2018.
These were Jose’s daily words and he was right, whether rain or sun, we had 14 unforgettable and special days here at Villa Perezoso. We cannot do other than to agree with the others, Costa Rica/Manuel Antonio are awesome places, but the holidays and this place are just because of the amazing staff. Randall made every trip unique, Ana lit up every morning and showed us daily sloth and other animal sightings and thanks to Jose we had daily culinary highlights and are taking back 10 pounds back to Germany. We want to thank you all for your devoted and tireless work and commitment to your guests. A wonderful vacation villa and wonderful piece on earth. Pura Vida! Hoffman Family, Germany; November 2018.

“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”.
