    Beautiful home in beautiful location

    This is a stunningly beautiful property. Ocean view front. I spent most of my time watching the clouds roll over the mountains behind the home. There is a stream that runs beside the house with a deck for viewing. Pool was spotless clean. Plenty of room with 3 bedroom and 4 bathrooms. I would stay here again.

    Howlers delight!!!!

    The only thing that would give this another star would be more birds and monkeys!!!!! The casa was perfect in all other ways. The locaction was a little daunting at first but we quickly found it to be ideal for restaurants, playas, and privacy! Well done to all who made this possible!!!!

    Second stay here and it doesn’t disappoint

    Our second stay at Casa de Britt and once again everything was perfect. The house is spotless, well equipped and the outdoor audio systems can’t be beat. Amazing private location, grounds, pool and nearby waterfall almost make you forget about the beach haha. To be honest the house is amazing but Ann Marie and Kevin of Pacifico Property Management are the reason we returned. Never be in doubt of any recommendation or property they represent. Pura Vida
