vacation rental description


Casa Britto is an elegant residence situated on a hillside with spectacular views of the Central Valley, a 15 minute drive from the center of San José, the capital city. Escazú has developed from a traditional colonial town to the most fashionable suburb to San José, offering a great selection of shopping, restaurants and night life. One of the Property Managers, Alex or Evelyn will receive you and manage the check in. The Property Managers are available on standby to assist you throughout the rental period. Maria, the Maid, and Pablo, the Gardener, work Monday to Friday. The maximum capacity of Casa Britto is 14 guests. For larger groups we can co-ordinate with Hotel Casa Cristal,, a top ranked boutique hotel, situated 200 meters from Casa Britto.


Casa Britto is a fully equipped and staffed property rented on a self-catering basis including a daily maids’ service during weekdays. Our concierge services range from travel and restaurant tips to full scale vacation planning, to help you realize your dream vacation in Costa Rica. Food and beverage options such as breakfast, grocery shopping, fine wine delivery and in-house private chef are designed to your specifications. The tours and transfers program includes airport transfer, daily minibus rental and a selection of the best Costa Rican tours by leading tour operators. In house massage and other spa treatments are also available for your relaxation. Casa Britto also provides a selection of event services including venue, staff and event planner.


The minimalistic architecture integrates with the natural slope of the landscaped garden surrounding the house, taking full advantage of the spectacular views and natural illumination. Two large terraces provide shade to the façade permitting natural ventilation to keep the house cool during the warmest of days. Floor to ceiling windows allow the greenery from the garden to come inside and enhance the panoramic views. Casa Britto has been furnished with great care combining antique and vintage pieces with top level design to create an exclusive and homely character. The property features a large number of spacious social areas, each with its own atmosphere and style. All these areas are easily accessed from the kitchen, which is the heart of the house. Next to the heated pool there is a large wooden deck, a small rancho and a grill area with a gazebo for shade. The gardens have been designed with a great variety of flowers, plants and trees embracing the property in a cascade of colors and scents attracting butterflies and birds. Winding paths lead to the upper garden passing colorful flowers and fruit trees to a larger rancho with breathtaking views.

Amazing Property in the Hills of Escazu

Review submitted: August 26, 2014   Date of arrival: August 14, 2014

We stayed at this property for 3 nights and it was our best time during our 9 days in Costa Rica. The Property was simply amazing and opulent. The views were breathtaking especially at night. We had a formal dinner banquet for 30 people, and what I liked probably the most was the fact that everything I needed in the way of plates servery platters utensils glasses etc etc was all there. Everything. I loved the stove and didn't even need to bbq because of the fantastic grill on the stove. Thank you for helping me to create such a beautiful banquet for our esteemed guests they were so impressed also which made for an even more successful evening.

Un sueño que duró 7 dias

Review submitted: April 12, 2014   Date of arrival: April 7, 2014

Todo lo que promete esta casa, se queda corto cuando uno la conoce

El checkin fue super ordenado, con un tour por toda la casa gentilmente realizado por los dueños

Las instalaciones son excepcionales, amantes de la cocina varios de los que nos quedamos pudimos aprovechar la increible cocina completa que tiene y su hermosa parrilla con vista a toda la ciudad

Maria y Pablo que trabajan en la casa, hicieron de nuestra estadia aun mejor. Levantarse a la mañana con el olor del desayuno recien preparado y luego un chapuzon en la piscina, van a ser recuerdos que nos perseguiran por un largo tiempo

Lo mejor, las terrazas con vista al valle

A beautiful home in the middle of paradise!

Review submitted: March 23, 2014   Date of arrival: March 8, 2014

We stayed at Casa Britto for a week in March. My only regret is how little time we got to spend enjoying the house and especially the gardens and pool! With so many attractions to see, it was a busy vacation! But we made it a point on our last day to spend the whole day by the pool and it was heaven! The house has everything one can need and room for a very large group. Lots of sitting areas to relax and enjoy the views. Great staff too, it was such a treat to be greeted at the airport by Jose and to have Maria take care of us and Pablo care for the property! Thank you Antonio and Marta (and Evelyn and Feliz too!)
