Staying here was absolute paradise. Michel is an exceptional host; very accessible just when you need him, yet he knew when you needed privacy. My husband and I stayed at Casa Las Brisas with my husband's brother and girlfriend and had a wonderful time. Every morning we were served Michel's culinary delights, whether it included his moist and delectable banana bread, eggs, sliced fresh fruit, toast with exotic guava or pineapple preserves, or sweet and custardy french toast. Weather permitting, we had our breakfast right on the beach, with gauzy white tablecloths laid upon a table and seats made from old tree stumps. One evening we sipped our drinks (Michel with his red wine, us with our rum!) and laughed and talked late into the night. On another evening a bonfire on the beach was lit just for us, and we shared beers and got to know a little about Michel's fascinating life prior to coming to Costa Rica (he used to work in fashion!).
The decor and furniture was simple, but that is really all you need in this life, you know? No TV, no noise, no distractions. Just the wonderful simplicity of ocean breezes, lush tropical fauna, simple good food, drinks, and good conversation. And if you ever wanted more of a pool scene and full bar, Banana Azul is a stone's throw away and access to their facilities is included with your stay at Las Brisas.
Michel was absolutely amazing. I left feeling as if I were saying goodbye to an old friend. If you are looking to experience the simple good life for a little while, be sure to book your stay here.
