I am being 100% honest when I say that Casa Frangipani was the absolute magic of our entire vacation. Wow, I'm still blissed out from our stay!
We were in Santa Teresa for our first 11 nights and stayed the last 3 in Montezuma at Casa Frangipani - IF WE WOULD HAVE ONLY KNOWN!!!! We would have stayed the ENTIRE time at Casa Frangipani and would have just drove for day trips to Santa Teresa.
--> WHY? the view and the people and the energy of this place completely embodies what I dreamt Costa Rica would be like. The villas are a wonderful layout, the next house I buy will be built to exactly this floor plan and design - simple, elegant and efficient. Alex, who takes care of the land is super sweet and helpful - he made sure he was available for everyone what seemed like 24 hours a day and was obviously taking great pride in caring for the property... not to mention his adorable daughter who is so well behaved! The housekeeper was beyond beautiful and sweet, just pleasant. The view, the flowers, the location - all came together in perfect harmony to create a calm, creative and serene field of contentment & happiness.
Yes, Casa Frangipani is located up the hill, of course! Finding a magical place isnt as easy as you'd like, that's what makes it special. The walk DOWN the hill is no big deal! I am 29, out of shape and healing a spine injury, my boyfriend is 39 and out of shape and we really like it - it felt good, even in the heat of the day. About 15 minutes to walk down. The walk UP is difficult the first 2 times, after that it's enjoyable and makes you feel good about yourself to get some exercise! Just go slow and steady and you'll be just fine. Once you get back, take a nice cold outdoor shower and float in the pool and you'll be feeling like a goddess. If you're not into using your body for what it's made for, you can wait at the bottom of the hill right at the end of the main street of town and a taxi drives by frequently and it will cost you 2000 colones or $4. No big deal and really worth it for staying somewhere so special.
Ken is who I had been corresponding with for the reservation and any other things I had questions about and he is the epitome of customer service .. I mean!!!!! C'mon!!! It's all just too good to experience only once so we are going to make sure we go back in the next year or so.
Coorresponding with Ken, staying at Casa Frangipani and all the amenities, meeting Alex + staff ... Feels like they know EXACLY how to do it and how to do it 100% wonderfully.
