Your Personal Staff


Mauricio concierge

One of the things our guests rave about the most, is the unexpected and unrivalled service they received during their stay from Mauricio, their own personal concierge. 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.

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 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."

Awards & Honors

In addition to the thousands of guests Casa de Frutas has hosted over they years, we’re very proud to have also been selected by some well-known names you might recognize. Winners of awards themselves, their good taste and talents have been showcased on screens large and small the world over.

I am falling in love with Costa Rica. Thank you, Dave & Mauricio, for all the details, luxury and pure beauty you are orchestrating.”

“My family and I just returned from 10 days in Tulemar. I must say, it was one of the best vacations we have ever had. The house we stayed in Casa de Frutas was truly magical, the beaches were beautiful and pristine, and our days were filled with joy and relaxation. Dave and Mauricio took care of everything, from adventure activities to dinner reservations. I only wish Mauricio could come back to LA and take care of us here! My family has made me promise to return to Tulemar, and I can't wait to go back myself.”

“Rarely is a vacation home even better than its photos, but that's what we found at Casa de Frutas. Having rented properties all over the world, Dave's retreat in Costa Rica is our all-time favorite. The house is perfection and the views are surpassed only by the service of Mauricio - who treated us like royalty. Lazy days on the beach, in the plunge pool or sipping a cool drink on the deck, it was an unforgettable memory maker for our family. Looking forward to our next trip!”
