Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Manuel Antonio - Casa Azul, Azul Pajaro, 218

Casa Azul Has An Amazing Infinity Pool, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, And Maid Service.

The design and decor of the home are a blend of Costa Rican and Mediterranean. It has a unique charm.

The home has four bedrooms. The Master has an orthopedic king bed and an adjoining bath. There is a second bedroom with an orthopedic queen on the same level as the master. There is also a second bath on this level. A third bedroom is off the main level. It has an orthopedic queen plus an oversize twin bunk bed with a king on the bottom and a queen on the top. The fourth bedroom is off the pool level and has its own bath. All beds have new toppers [2014] and protective covers for both beds and pillows.

All bedrooms and the main living area are air conditioned with individual thermostats. There are quality ceiling fans in each area.

The main area is open and consists of the living, dining, and kitchen areas. There are many large Mediterranean style windows which open towards the pool area. The dining table seats eight. There is a six seat sectional sofa, four other cushioned chairs, a cushioned two seater bench, and a kitchen island with three stools. A door opens from the living area onto a new [2014], full length balcony on the rear of the house. There are tables and chairs there as well as a gas grill. There is another table with chairs at the pool level. There are eight quality lounge chairs near the pool.

Parking is at the villa. There are two covered spots and parking for two more on the street in front. The street is used only by us and a couple of neighbors. There is a security fence around the Villa with lockable gates and an alarm system. There is a safe to secure your valuables.

The pool is a large infinity style with a full view of the ocean, town, and mountains yet there is privacy. The depth is five feet throughout, good for swimming but requiring supervision of children who cannot swim. The pool area and the pool itself are lighted. There are eight comfortable loungers plus three seating areas with additional chairs, and a gas grill. The grill can be used on the new balcony. There are areas of sun and areas of shade at the pool area.

The kitchen is fully stocked with all utensils and cooking pots and pans. There is a stove, an ice maker, a coffee maker, a toaster, a blender, a microwave, and a dishwasher. All the appliances are new in 2014.

New, tropical landscaping for the property was completed in 2014.

We have a manager and concierge, Steve Kelly, to greet you, to check you in, to answer your questions, to help with your tours and help with any questions or problems you may have.

There is daily maid service except Sundays included in the price. A chef will come to the Villa and prepare your meals for a reasonable price. See the menu on our website costaricadeluxe.com.

The villa has an ample supply of quality towels and linens including towells for the pool and towels for the beach There is a laundry room with a new, 2014, washer and dryer on site. If you prefer, the maid will do your laundry for an added fee.

The Villa is conveniently located on the Manuel Antonio road about halfway between Quepos and Manuel Antonio. It is in a small development of lovely homes. One mile to the town, two miles to the beach, and three miles to Manuel Antonio park. It is located near the best hotels with many good restaurants nearby.

We purchased the home in December 2013, and completely remodeled and updated the Villa during 2014. We hope those who have been prior guests enjoy the new things. Many additional photos and reviews can be viewed on the property website, costaricadeluxe.com.

About Andy Thierry owner, handles reservations. Steve Kelly is the local concierge.

We sold our vacation place in Florida in 2013 and decided to find a new vacation place in Central America. After looking around, we decided on Costa Rica. After more looking around in Costa Rica, we decided on the Manuel Antonio area. We fell in love with Casa Azul and we believe you will too.

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

We had 2 families that recently stayed at Casa Azul and it was a perfect set up for us. The house is well appointed with all that you need, including a great kitchen! The pool is amazing and one of the best features of the place! The house is in a great location, only a few minutes drive from great beaches and restaurants. We loved the views from the whole house especially the deck and pool area. The tropical landscaping make it very private even though there are places next door.

Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house for our family trip which included our three kids and their spouses. Great open concept living area/kitchen to fit everyone. Plenty of parking for our rental vehicles. The pool is an absolute treasure. We were in it at least twice a day. Perfect to cool off after a long day exploring or at the beach. Our host- Steve took excellent care of us. We will definitely return!

Couples Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for 4 couple getting out of the Ontario winter. All 4 bedrooms were great for us and the bathroom situation wasn't an issue either. We chose this area because of the diverse activities to do especially the great fishing for the guys. We did so much walking and enjoyed getting on the local bus to take us to Manual Antonio. Most of us did walk up that steep hill at least once, and let me say, they said it was tough and I could tell from their faces. We certainly had fun with the cab drivers driving up the hill.

Quepos is a great little town and you can certainly do it and the area without renting a car. We walked into town at least once a day and some days twice.

After those days out, we certainly enjoyed the pool to come back to and cool off. The view from the pool, and the amazing deck off the living room/kitchen, really from the whole house were just incredible.

Renting this house from the beginning of the search and contacting Andy for specifics and pricing for the time we wanted was great. Steve, the concierge, was great and so helpful for us. He contacted our transfer company and made arrangements for meeting in town to get to the house, to booking a couple of excursions and doing anything we needed help with. This whole experience was fantastic, easy and fun from beginning to end. We would love to come back.

Casa Azul

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for 5 guys who were able to get away from their wives and work for a week. Very comfortable, clean and a great location for whatever activities we took on that day. It was especially nice to hop in the pool after a full day of reeling in many sailfish. The staff of Steve and Jocelyn were very helpful and courteous and we would go back to Casa Azul in a second. Thank you to all who helped make this a very memorable vacation.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as advertised - very comfortable, clean, with all the comforts of home. The kitchen was very well equipped with very good cookware and dinnerware. Having good laundry facilities was very much appreciated. The maid service was an added bonus and Jocelyn did a great job. Scott and Steve were extremely helpful in getting us settled and in providing advice for activities in the area. Steve was particularly generous in assisting us with getting grocery supplies on the day we arrived, tired after a long drive from Monteverde to Quepos. The pool was very clean and enjoyed by our group, the lovely porch facilitated appreciation of a beautiful view of Quepos and the surrounding coastline. Availability of air-conditioning throughout the house made it very comfortable. It was very great communicating with the owner, Andy, who was always very quick to respond, and addressed all questions and queries. All in all, a wonderful vacation at a spacious house that was conveniently located close to all the needed amenities and tourist activities.

Car: recommended

Manuel Antonio has several beautiful beaches a short drive from Casa Azul. The new Marina in Quepos offers world class sport fishing for Marlin, Sailfish, Maui-Maui and more. If you like fishing, a trip is a must. The water is calm for the most part and gets very deep within a few miles of shore. There is very little boat traffic. On our first trip out we caught two of the largest sailfish I have ever seen as well as numerous Maui- Maui, also the largest I have seen. These were caught within sight of shore. We also saw a Humpback Whale with her Pup.

The new Marina with reasonable, safe charters is within two miles of Casa Azul. It can be viewed from the house. Arrange a charter with your concierge. If you prefer, the management team will arrange for a chef to prepare a full course meal with your fresh fish for a reasonable fee, or you can take your fish to any one of the local restaurants and they will be glad to prepare it for you.

Wildlife tours in Manuel Antonio park are amazing as is the beach. The park entrance is 3 miles from Casa Azul. We recommend hiring a guide with a spotting scope. You can see the various species of Monkeys, Sloths and Iguanas really well for a very reasonable fee. If you have an Iphone, the guide will take amazing pictures using his scope. Within a mile or so inside the Park, you will come upon several beautiful secluded beaches.

The beaches near the park entrance have Jet skis, parasailing, horseback riding, and ATV tours. We have done white water rafting and zip lining. Both are a blast, great fun for all ages. The local tour companies will pick you up at the house and return you.

Although I am not a surfer, I hear from those who are that some of the best surfing is within a short drive of Casa Azul. Hermosa is to the North and Dominical to the south. For the more adventuresome, there are all sorts of tours available for ATV riding thru the mountains.

Diving and snorkeling trips are available at the new Pez Marina which is two miles away and can be viewed from the house.

Of course, there are all sorts of Eco tours which show and explain the diverse and beautiful Costa Rica Flora and Fauna.

Casa Azul sits on a hill overlooking the town of Quepos and the ocean to the west. To the east are the rainforest mountains. The view is Panoramic during the day. At night, the lights of the town can be enjoyed from the house, balcony, and the infinity pool.

Quepos is an exuberant little town with lots of shopping and friendly local Ticos.

There are several grocery stores nearby. There is also a large Pali market [Walmart chain] about two miles away.

Taxis are very reasonable and readily available in the area. If you rent a vehicle, there are parks, mountains, beaches and tours within a short drive. If you drive to Quepos from San Jose Airport, the new roads are quite good. It is a scenic drive along the ocean and thru the miles and miles of palm plantations along highway 34. There are modern gas stations and stopping points along the way.

For a more laid back vacation, spend plenty of time at the house enjoying the amenities, including the infinity pool and the new, full length balcony on the rear of the house. Cook your fish on the new grill and enjoy the sunsets.

There are many excellent and reasonable restaurants to choose from within a few miles of Casa Azul. Most are on the Manuel Antonio road which is less than a mile from Casa Azul.

I can honestly say we have never had a bad meal at any of the popular restaurants alone the Manuel Antonio Road. There are many good ones to choose from. Most restaurants along the Manuel Antonio Road are open air with views of the Pacific ocean and lovely ocean breezes. The service is generally good and the prices are reasonable.

Costa Rica has good medical care. There is a hospital two miles from Casa Azul. There are local pharmacies in Quepos always ready to help with any need you may have.

Quepos has a Farmer's Market every Friday evening and all day Saturdays. You can get all sorts of fresh food and condiments at a very reasonable price.

Quepos has its own airport which is three miles from Casa Azul. There are many flights daily from San Jose to Quepos by Sansa and Nature Air. The flight takes twenty minutes and is an experience in itself. There are several car rental agencies in Quepos. We currently use Adobe. Rentals rates are reasonable.
