About Preston Bonner
Villa Las Brisas was built at the turn of the millennium by Georgia native Phil Bonner. Best known for his legendary drag racing days in the 1960s for Ford Motor Company, Phil had many successful endeavors throughout life including home design as well as airplane + car sales. He loved the serenity Costa Rica offers very much. Phil passed away at the age of 81 in 2014 but his legacy is kept alive by his family, friends and fans. Preston Bonner (pictured, left) is Phil's grandson and has managed the rentals for the villa since 2009. Preston has a degree in Political Science from Georgia State University and worked for the Atlanta Braves from 2011-2015. Passionate for music business, he is co-owner of Empire Reign, an artist management firm based in Nashville & Las Vegas. Preston is also a managing partner for a successful concert production company. Preston says Costa Rica is like a second home to him and is a well-versed ambassador for the beautiful country. Costa Rica will forever be a special place to the Bonner family.
Preston Bonner purchased this Villa in 2000
Why Preston Bonner chose Bagaces
Near the end of the 1990s, I found this gorgeous isolated ocean-view property and immediately knew this is where I wanted to build my paradise home. Now, the towns and beaches are booming with prosperity as Costa Rica has become one of the world's leading tourist destinations. We are only a few minutes from the wonderful swimming beaches of Playa Panama and Playa Hermosa. Other fantastic beaches such as Playa Tamarindo, Playa Flamingo, and Playa Grande are only an hour away. The view of the Pacific Ocean from the balconies of our villa are awesome night in, night out. I couldn't imagine a better place in paradise to call home! -Phil Bonner
What makes this Villa unique
I've always enjoyed waking up early in the morning and listening to the unique sounds of the howler monkeys in the trees and nearby jungle. The pool is extra cool in the mornings. There is nothing better, however, than sitting in the rocking chairs near dusk and watching the truly awesome sunsets light up the horizon of the Pacific Ocean in front of our eyes. Costa Rica is the gem of Central America with amazing natural sites and fantastic people. Pura Vida! -Phil Bonner

Gorgeous property that actually was nicer than pictures. Spectacular view from the house and especially the back area. The House lady, Yoko, was like one of the family:lovely and very helpful
We’ve stayed at a lot of VRBOs and this may be the prettiest place we’ve ever been. The view from the back patio and pool is perfect. Like the description says, you won’t want to leave. You’ll just want to sit in the pool and relax. The pool is a good size, the patio has tons of space and gets plenty of light for sunning and has plenty of covered space. There’s some grassy yard space and a hammock on the side of the house.
The inside of the home is beautiful. The kitchen is huge and has everything. The living and dining rooms are comfortable and have lots of space for a big group. Each bedroom has its own bath. The AC works well (and is needed).
Yoco takes care of the house and is a pleasure. We enjoyed meeting her.
The house is on a street with other homes but is very private. And it’s not far to drive down the hill to get to restaurants. However it is good to stock up on groceries once so you won’t have to go back and forth. The drive is a little steep but not as bad as I expected. And not a scary road even at night.
We wished we could have stayed here forever. Everything about it is just perfect.
Me and my husband stayed here for our honeymoon. It was breathtaking!!! Preston is super nice and so easy to talk to. Going back in late march with friends and cant wait. Thank You Preston for every thing!!!
Because I want to keep this a secret....
I don't even want to write a review!!! The place is absolute paradise. My family has been fortunate to come here two times and we just LOVE it!!! Just incredible!!!
Excellent Customer Service!
Had to cancel our March 2016 reservation, which is very sad as this places' reviews were so great and our family of 10 were looking very forward to staying here....
I contacted Preston by email on the Saturday to let him know of our plans and he was very quick with his return communication. He was very professional and returned our deposit in less than 2 days!
Excellent Customer Service! Lora M. from Canada
Family Christmas vacation
My husband and I along with our family of children in their 20s and 30s, sister, and mother-in-law spent a lovely 17 days at Villa Las Brisas during the Christmas/New Year's holidays. The house is exactly as depicted in the photos--well kept, lovely decor and beautiful views! Yoco, the housekeeper is a gem and Xavier the pool/gardener keeps the outside areas pristine. We rented a car and were able to go to a couple of volcanoes, along with river rafting and ziplining too. We also checked out other beaches in the area and ended up visiting Playa Hermosa several times because the snorkeling was great right off the beach around the rocks ---and it's a 10 minute drive. Our family loves to cook so this was a perfect place for us! We grilled lobster, shrimp and calamari in the outdoor rancho and made all kinds of tropical drinks. Everyone had a wonderful time! I highly recommend this villa and would love to return someday.
Playa Panama is a small, sleepy beach town, great for swimming. However, activities, restaurants, and nightlife can be found in nearby Playa Hermosa and Playas del Coco. Playa Tamarindo, one of the most popular surfing destinations in Latin America, is a quick hour drive from Villa Las Brisas
