Even though he was very, very helpful when booking this place for three months and agreed we would have 1/2 refund if we couldn't travel, when we got sick and couldn't travel we got nothing. We paid $3600 USD and have nothing to show for it and the owner got very abusive to both my son and I and even... More

Sharon is not being forthright about what occurred. I have hundreds of positive reviews on AirBNB. We do not rip people off. This is my response to the tourist board: Good afternoon Ms. Chacón, Thank you for forwarding the complaint of Sharon Murphy against Villa Le Mas. In the first place this isn't a tourist matter. Ms. Murphy rented our... More

I had a very nice stay at Villa Jacaranda in May of this year. Even though staying closer to the center of Escazu has its benefits (which I've experienced on previous trips), I definitely preferred the experience of being closer to nature here. The unit had its own private patio, a small kitchenette, shower with hot water, space heater (for... More

Best views in San Jose. We stayed at this place for a week and was a great escape from the hot beach climate. Owners were very helpful and are available to answer any questions you may have. There is a security guard 24/7. Great quiet place up the hills but also a very short drive to Escazu. Would definitely stay... More

Everyone at Villa Le Mas were nice, from the owners, workers who maintain the property, to the security guards. There are three large dogs that reside on the property, so that is an added benefit for dog-lovers. No cats were on the premises. The grounds resembled an idyllic tropical land and was always maintained well. During my stay, it was... More

My week long stay at Villa Le Mas was the perfect way to spend time in the San Jose area. It is quiet hillside retreat with amazing views and gorgeous landscaping while being just blocks from plenty of amenities and a short drive to modern amenities such as Starbucks.

This spacious studio has amazing views of the mountains right out side the tall floor-to-ceiling glass walls on three sides of the room. I was first concerned that the living room/seating area would be crowded, but I was pleasantly surprised. The king size bed takes up only about 20% of the large living area. There's a full bath and small... More

To start our trip in Costa Rica, we rented for a week, a studio near San Jose. We wanted to be near the city without undergoing noise and other inconveniences. We found a gem! Hidden in the hills of Escazu, in a very upscale area, near the cloud forest, the studio 4, elegant and original, offers breathtaking views of the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Villa Le Mas offers tranquil vacation apartments located in a park-like setting with views of Cerro Pico Blanco and the Central Valley. Our property is the last property before the Nature Reserve begins to the south and to the west there is a creek and then agricultural land. There are many different kinds of birds and wildlife. The property is two and a half acres of tropical gardens with the vacation rentals scattered about walkways through the gardens. Our location and property are very private, peaceful and tranquil. We are only 15 minutes to shopping and restaurants, yet it feels as if you are in the countryside. We have complimentary shared laundry facilities on the property and 24/7 guard service for the safety of our guests and their property. ... more   less
