Perfect and

Review submitted: May 10, 2014   Date of arrival: January 20, 2014

My husband and I held our wedding at Casa Capitan in January and we cannot sing enough praises for Carlota and the Capitan estate. It was the most incredible and "smooth" experience and a perfect set up for a wedding! Casa Capitan is a one of a kind paradise with an incredibly peaceful and tranquil atmosphere. I just can't compliment Carlota enough on what an amazing job she has done to create such a beautiful and unique space (even the beautiful photos don't do it justice!). The grounds and the beach in front are stunning, the staff is so friendly and efficient, and Carlota and Jaymie were incredibly helpful with recommendations, etc. Carlota even recommended my wedding planner, Courtney, who was absolutely brilliant. Both of our families stayed at Casa Capitan and Casa Java for a week surrounding the wedding and everyone has voted this their favorite vacation of all time(-; Thank you Carlota and the Capitan estate staff who made our vacation and wedding so perfect! We hope to be back soon!

Capitan addiction - Acute relaxation

Review submitted: September 1, 2013   Date of arrival: August 3, 2013

I can't begin to tell you how much our family enjoyed
our recent stay at your beautiful Casa Capitan. The space your have created there is really Special and turned out to be perfect for our group. Between the house and gardens and the
wonderful resting palapa ( I took naps in all three) I don't think I have ever been as rested
on a vacation. Your staff was wonderful and never intrusive to our privacy yet they keep the
property spotless. Jaymie was most helpful in answering questions and making last minute
arrangements for us. We liked it so much everyone wants to return next August.
We are also interested in the Java house for another daughter and her family. We would also look into flying direct rather that stay in San Jose overnight. That would give us more time at the house also.
I know everyone in my family who was at the property wants to return and we are already excited to come back as we all gathered Sunday and were looking at our pictures of your beautiful house and all the wonderful art and gardens you have placed there. It really is quite special as I am sure you are aware. Do you get to stay there often yourself? Also thanks for the referral for the pilot who has contacted me. I will get back to him. It makes total sense for us to fly over next trip to save time.. Again I am sorry it took so long to get back to you but I had an acute case of so much relaxation from Costa Rica it was hard getting back to my regular life again. Casa Capitan is the kind of addiction we all need from time to time in our way too busy lives! Thank you again for providing such a beautiful place to vacation in.

Hi Carlota,

We had such a wonderful time there. Your house is beautiful!! It was the perfect place for our family to be able to just relax together. Jaymie helped us so much. We couldn't have done it
without her. She really helped set everything up. To the charter flights, excursions, quads, taxi's and she made it all so easy for us. She was wonderful! We took surf lessons, zip lined and did yoga. I have to say using Carmon Air for our charter flights from San Jose made the trip so much easier. They were there waiting at the airport to pick us up and take us all to their airstrip. There was no wait time and they really took care of us. Definitely the way to go! We enjoyed having Davin and Pablo with Canape Catering cook for us. Can't say enough about his delicious food!! It felt like we were at a 5 star resort eating 5 star food. He plated the food beautifully at every meal and served us at the large dining table that held all 16 of us! Having your girls cook us breakfast and Davin for lunch and dinner was a dream. We all can't stop talking about our trip. It was so amazing! We all hope to make it back again. Thanks so much for making it special for us.
