Overview

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 is a blend of Costa Rica 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 mite 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 deck on the rear of the house. There are tables and chairs there and on the pool level. There are eight quality lounge chairs.

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.

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 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 management team, Coldwell Banker of Quepos, 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. The team leader's name is Scott Ferguson of Coldwell Banker, Quepos.

There is daily maid service 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 towels and linens including towells for the pool. 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 just purchased the home [December 2013], and have just completed remodeling and updating the Villa. We hope those who have been prior guests enjoy the new things. Many additional photos and reviews can be viewed on the property website.

We sold our place in Florida in 2013 and decided to find a new 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.

Don't Hesitate - Rent it Now!
  • 5 out of 5
When we started researching places to stay in the Manuel Antonio area, we found many of the options either outrageously expensive or not very interesting. Having used Homeaway a number of times in the past in various locations, we knew that for us a separate house would probably be our best bet. We were two adults in our sixties with two adults in their thirties (our son and daughter). We needed room to spread out and places to gather. But I never expected to find such a perfect place – particularly for the money. This place is an amazing value for the money. First of all, let me say that Andy, the owner, is a great pleasure to work with. Responsive, helpful and just all round nice. Scott, the manager of the property in Quepos, was also great.

We arrived in Quepos tired and disoriented after a day of driving from Arenal. Scott's office was exactly where he said it would be and we easily connnected with him. We followed him up the hill to Casa Azul and immediately loved it. It is in a neighborhood overlooking Quepos and the ocean. Although the drive up to the house is straight up a hill, you get used to it – not to worry. Even better, it's on the road to Manuel Antonio. So you're already on the way to MA Park, great restaurants, and good views – without having to drive back through Quepos.

The house is wonderful – built on a hillside with three levels, beautiful views of the town and the ocean. The main floor has a kitchen (really well stocked with utensils and necessary equipment) and nice living room and bedroom. The upper floor has two bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The lower level is a gorgeous swimming pool overlooking the city and ocean with lounge chairs and another bedroom and bathroom. Swimming in the pool and looking out at the view was amazing.

This house is convenient to Quepos and to Manuel Antonio. Everything is within a five to ten minute drive. If you are thinking about renting this house – don't hesitate – just do it before it is rented by someone else!

Amazing Property, Amazing Views, AMAZING STAY!

  • 5 out of 5
We had a great stay at this fantastic property. I think the place was recently redone, and it felt completely new; very clean; and what a way to spend our time in Costa Rica. The house is beautiful with large airy ceilings, very open, and pool with a killer view. It was a great value for our money, and we were easily able to fit 9 people (it NEVER felt crowded). Would highly recommend staying here, and if we travel to Costa Rica, we would stay here again.

Also, all communication with owner leading up to our stay was gracious, prompt and speedy!

Fantastic, all around.

  • 5 out of 5
I came here with some friends for a birthday celebration - a gorgeous property overlooking Quepos with a long lanai we spent every morning on and a perfect pool for hours of afternoon floating. The house manager Cornelius is wonderful - set up tours and activities for us and the dinner his wife prepared one night was a highlight! Cannot recommend this place enough, it was a luxurious and relaxing vacation. Thank you!

We loved Casa Azul! Having our own pool with amazing views of Quepos below and the ocean beyond, gorgeous sunsets every night, it was hard to even leave the house! We watched a soccer game almost every night with our view of the local pitch. The beds were comfortable, everything was clean, there was lots of room for private space. The appliances are nice, some new. The air conditioning was excellent with the option of fans, if you didn't want air.
The new deck is spacious and open to the views.
We had a vehicle and I have to say the road up is not for the faint hearted, but it's private, quiet and gives the views. If you don't have a car it's a very short steep walk down to the main road with ample bus and taxi options. We liked being closer to Quepos and away from tourist areas, even though they are close.
It is close to lots of great restaurants, but also well equipped to cook your own meals.
Cornelius, our concierge was very friendly and helpful, arranging most of our tours promptly. He even managed some surprise health care we needed.
La pura vida!

Andy, we had a great time at your house. It has a nice layout, especially with the addition of the new deck. The bedrooms and bathrooms are real nice. The views are the best yet from all the places we've stayed in the area. The pool is awesome and we used it on a regular basis. There were a few small issues probably due to the new construction work that Scott and his people corrected right away. Overall, I would reccomend this house. thanks

Wonderful time!

  • 5 out of 5
My family that included 5 adults and 4 young adults spent a wonderful three days at Casa Azul. The pool is heavenly with a great view of the mountains and Quepos. The house is well equipped with everything you need for cooking meals or having a barbecue by the pool. Beds are comfortable and everything is kept neat and clean with the daily maid service provided. Visits to the national park are a must. One day for hiking and another for just soaking in the ocean. A sunset drink at Ronnie's Place is fun. Try the piña colada served inside the pineapple. Everyone in our group can't wait for a return trip to Casa Azul.

Manuel Antonio
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 Scott, the head manager. He is an ex dive boat Captain and knows the best charters. 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.

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.

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. For the more adventuresome, there are all sorts of tours available for zip lining, white water rafting and ATV guided tours.

Diving and snorkeling trips are available at the Marina which can be seen from the Casa.

Of course, there are all sorts of Eco tours which show and explain the diverse 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.

The fish and fresh fruits and vegetables they provide are the among the best I have experienced. You can also get good steaks.

Many Restaurants on 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.
