Marilynne Leadon stayed in an Escape Villas vacation rental, Casa Carpe Diem, in Manuel Antonio for one week in June 2011 with her family. Mrs. Leadon explains her decision to opt for the chef service in Costa Rica, “We chose the Chef Service for a number of reasons. First, eating out at restaurants takes a lot of time and money. We wanted to be able to relax in the morning and evening after our excursions. I cook a lot at home and love cooking, but I wanted a vacation as well! I didn’t want to spend time grocery shopping and cooking; I wanted to have fun with my family. It was more convenient, and elevated our experience to a vacation and not just a trip.”

Mrs. Leadon praised Escape Villas Chef, Chris Thebault’s culinary skills, “He and I met after breakfast each morning and created the menu for dinner that night and breakfast the next day. Then he went shopping and put the groceries in the kitchen. He came back in the afternoon to prep the food and then served us when we were ready. He put fresh flowers on the table every day. He gave me a standard list of what he could prepare, but we generally just talked about what was fresh, in season, and good in the grocery store. I had a blast creating menus with him and then I didn’t even have to cook, just eat!”

A graduate of the School of Le Nôtre in Paris, France, Chef Thebault has worked in some of the finest restaurants around the globe. His newest additions to the Escape Villas menu include, Thai Green Curry with fish, chicken or vegetables, freshly caught Red Snapper Caribbean Style, Green Plantain Ceviche and Tarta Tatin, a French specialty made with caramelized apples and cinnamon.

The new additions to the Escape Villas menu have proved popular with Costa Rica vacation rental clients and the team’s professional approach has assured their services are frequently requested and Mrs. Leadon is just one of many happy vacationers who agrees, “Would I recommend this? Absolutely. I am going to look into having a chef service for our next overseas trip.”
