One of the things our guests rave about the most, is the unexpected and unrivalled service they received during their stay at Casa de Frutas from Mauricio, their own personal butler. Mauricio, a native of Costa Rica, graduated from ULACIT university with a business degree and then spent three years in the US working and studying English. After his time in the US, he returned to Costa Rica to work in banking and hospitality, learning the high level of service required to excel in both industries. Mauricio has worked with Casa de Frutas from the beginning in management, marketing and the butler/concierge role. He takes pride in knowing what guests expect staying in a luxury vacation rental, and utilizes his extensive network of local contacts to fulfill all our guests wishes. You can feel comfortable at Casa de Frutas knowing that whatever you need during your stay will be taken care of by Mauricio. As one of guests remarked "He knew what we would need before we even asked".

Guest praise/comments about Mauricio:

"I also must tell you how blessed we were to have Mauricio to take care of us. I manage a team of 96 bank employees and upon my return one of the stories I shared during our staff meetings was regarding the amazing service we received by Mauricio. Mauricio made us feel like we were his best and only clients yet somehow gracefully balanced being our friend and remaining the ultimate professional. If there was anything we needed, he was there. I can truly say that Mauricio "saved" my wedding week! When I look back years from now on my trip to Manuel Antonio, Mauricio will be a part of my memories. My friends have already taken to calling him, "the man, the myth, the legend" because of his "superhuman" ability to do everything!"

"Mauricio has made our stay effortless-I look forward to many more trips-his attention to details, charm and hospitality is greatly appreciated."

"Our stay was enhanced by Mauricio's kind and attentive helpfulness throughout our stay here. He was so generous with his time and knowledge of the area. We had so many questions and he was so patient answering all of them."
Lenore and Paul-Stockbridge, MA

"First trip to Costa Rica-we will be back-not just for the beauty and joy we found-not just for the amazing adventures-mostly to stay at Casa de Frutas again. Thru our many travels we have experienced nothing like the magic of Casa de Frutas. Mauricio, you are the ultimate magician!"
Marc and Amy-SoCal

"This place is the kind of place people only dream of...I'm going to have a hard time when I get back to reality, I'm quite spoiled (just as I finished writing that sentence, Mauricio arrived with a plate of freshly baked brownies!)."
Erin and Jeremy - Fresno, CA
