I stayed at Casa Brunxu for 10 nights in February 2015. With all of the resort choices in Quepos, I wasn't sure what to expect when I arrived. I really lucked out. Grettel and Carlos are fantastic people - they built the apartments on their own, and did an excellent job. They knew exactly how to strike a balance between... More

Over the years of coming to Manuel Antonio/Quepos, I've been slowly migrating toward Quepos as the base for my vacation: there are more choices for restaurants, and more reasonable prices, grocery shopping is more convenient and also less expensive, and you get a more Tico, less touristy feel. Quepos itself is much cleaner than it was a few years ago.... More

Brunxu Apartments has 4 rental units. I have lived in the 'studio' apartment on the lower level for over 3 years. For me, this place is nirvana - the proprietor, Grettel is a very good person to do business with. The apartments are clean, safe and well equipped. I am happy to repond to questions you may have via TripAdvisor.... More

I have had the pleasure of staying at brunxu during the months of February and March 2014. Being a single traveler I opted for their studio apartment. For me this was almost perfect. The room was very clean, the bed comfortable and the bathroom/shower roomy, clean and perfectly functional. The location is ideal as it is nestled in between Manuel... More

I have lived at Brunxu for almost a year now and it has been a great experience. Grettel and Carlos are such wonderful people and so accommodating, always wanting to make sure that everything is okay in the apartment. Their children are so sweet and well behaved - you wouldn't even know there are children living on the property! The... More

It'sCarlos' house. He lives upstairs with his wife and kids. Next to his unit is a cramped "apartment" with no closet so your stuff will be laying all over. It has a common door so you will hear their kids and their conversation and when they flush the toilet. Stayed one night and checked out. If you are in need... More

It is strange that this client has this complaint because of the following reasons: First, we do not rent the apartment for less than 3 days and we have not ever rented to any person named Dick. In September 2012, in the apartment that this gentleman is refering to, one person was living alone for a long time. We do... More

This is a great place to stay if you are visiting Manuel Antonio. Gretel, the owner, is super-friendly and helpful. The apartment is very clean, nicely decorated, has hot water, comfortable beds, great selection of tv channels, full kitchen and strong wi-fi. I was a bit worried at first when I did not see air conditioning, but the apartment does... More

Brunxu apartment was the perfect match for my husband & me to stay while in Quepos, Costa Rica. We lucked out when we found it online. Grettel & Carlos made it easy to reserve with a deposit via Western Union. We were nervous about this at first, but soon arrived to find they are a wonderful and trustworthy family. They... More
