“Amazing view!”
Reviewed 12 February 2014 for a stay in January 2014

This was our first time traveling and not staying at a hotel/resort, so we weren't completely sure if we'd like it or not. But we loved it! The house is beautiful, with everything you could possibly want/need for your stay. (towels, kitchen utensils, grill, pool, stereo, tv...) (however, we were a little bummed that we could never get the outdoor speakers on the second level working... it was a quiet night sipping rum punch and playing dice up there)
Though the walk up the hill from town seemed daunting at first, by the end it was a breeze and we left with wonderfully sculpted calf muscles. :) It was a very short walk to restaurants and the beach. We made it to the beach every day, even days that were packed with excursions out of town.
The rental company connected us with a private chef and that was one of the highlights of our trip. It was a fantastic meal and we were all so stuffed there were some very tasty leftovers that we turned into quesadillas the next day.
There were some interesting creatures that visited that a nature lover might enjoy, however some in our group took awhile to warm up to them. Halloween crabs seem to come out of nowhere and scurry around the house at night. I found them adorable. I'm quite certain if you're in Costa Rica you will be visited by creatures no matter where you're staying, so don't let that deter you from this house.
One day we walked further up the road from the house and I highly recommend that! The water was an amazing blue green viewed from the cliffs on the other side of the hill.

“Very nice”
Reviewed 28 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

The Las Brias house is everything we had hoped for. The views from the top deck were tremendous and breathtaking. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils and supplies and has everything almost the same as home. We decided to make cookies one day and sure enough there was a cookie sheet in one of he drawers. We had to do the mixing by hand but wow I didn't think we would even be able to do any of this. The house has AC units in each bedroom and the main living space making is so we could shut off the bedrooms during the day and have great cooling wherever you are. The pool is great, more of a dipping pool but all we needed. I was happy to find a built in Weber BBQ which was a plus as we BBQ almost all the time. The top floor master bedroom had a huge bathroom and wonderful sitting area. Outside it has a full wet bar area with a refrigerator and separate freezer for ice for the drinks. The upstairs room is accessed via an outside staircase which almost makes it like its own studio separate from the house. I suppose this would be great if you needed the separation from the rest of your group, but for us it broke us into 2 groups which wasn't as good as I would have liked. I am glad we didn't have younger children with us as we would not have used the upstairs much at all. The property management company was wonderful too. Any questions or concerns we had they were almost instantly there.

My only complaints... were most of the beds were very hard. I started sleeping upstairs for a couple nights but woke up sore every morning. So I moved to one of the other beds in the main house. Also for me the water pressure was not working well in the shower. And the upstairs potty didn't seem to flush very well. The view from the downstairs was blocked by over grown plants. And the master suite was difficult as I mentioned above.

A tip… when we left the house we looked everywhere to make sure we didn't leave anything behind. You might want to look in every chipboard everywhere when you arrive! We found another coffee machine as we were ready to leave!

“Beautiful House in a wonderful location”
Reviewed 23 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

Great house layout with lots of space. Nicely appointed and it has everything you need. The view of the ocean is spectacular and probably worth staying just for that.

Unfortunately, we lost water for 2.5 days at the house. Once we brought the problem to the owner's attention, a water truck came to get us back into business. Not sure why we had to wait 2.5 days for the situation to be corrected and it ruined 1/2 our stay at the house. Both Televisions were not working properly which was an inconvenience, but not a deal breaker. Seems like that could be fixed for the top dollar charged. There are tons of insects in the house. Something that probably can't be avoided in Costa Rica.

Would have been appropriate for the owner to refund some of the rental fee particularly since we were charged double rates over the holidays.

The location is very good, although it is a bit of a hike to and from the beach. Going back and forth by foot is quite a work out and not for those with a sedentary lifestyle.

There are tennis courts close by which are seldom used. A very good place to play some tennis if you have someone with you to hit with.

The beach is very nice and calm. Not many waves and perfect for small children. Everything was very clean.

On December 30th, the Costa Rican version of Ft. Lauderdale Spring Break came to Playa Flamingo and over 5000 kids came to party in the town. However, there were no problems that we were aware of and the only inconvenience was the traffic. For those who are looking for a relaxing time, don't come on the weekend of Dec. 30th.
