First the boring (but necessary) stuff....Awesome Condo! Spacious condo with two master suites. Each bedroom features a king size bed and French doors leading to large covered patio with ocean views. One bedroom also has private patio off to the side. Open floor plan has large living room, dining area and fully equipped kitchen with a breakfast bar and bar stools. Modern furnishings and comfortable beds make for a wonderful retreat. Condo is on the lower level for easy access but still has GREAT VIEWS. Wi-Fi and cable TV are included. Now the fun stuff.....This property is a little off the beaten path and is surrounded with jungle, dirt roads, some private residences, one hotel, the Pacific ocean and a beautiful beach (only about 1/4 mile walk). Sit on the patio with a nice breeze blowing through watching the sunset or just listening to the nearby monkeys or birds. Take a 5 min walk down to the beach or drive to the next town south or north (about 2-3 miles) to get food or groceries. Or just check out the many unpopulated and unspoiled beaches nearby. This is what I was looking for when I came here. If you’re looking to be in a tourist area with modern conveniences and lots of people, this probably isn’t for you. But if you're looking for an out of the way place where you can enjoy Costa Rica in an unspoiled area this is it! There is a Property manager on site can help with all tours and attractions.

About Marie Black
My husband and I live in Northern CA. We live in the mountains and enjoy the (mostly) relaxed, private life we have. We moved up here from the Bay Area a little over 14 years ago looking to get out of the rat race. We enjoy traveling when we get the chance - usually 2 trips a year (until we purchased this condo anyway). We both work full time as Realtors in our small community.
Marie Black purchased this Condo in 2018
Why Marie Black chose Playa Azul
When I started researching Costa Rica, I was told about these condos through a Travel Plan that we have. I was immediately intrigued. I loved the fact that it's so close to nature and so close to the beach and was not a tourist trap. Tourist areas are fun but we prefer quiet. I even looked into buying here prior to our trip. My husband, however, was not convinced. Until he saw what it had to offer and the prices of the condos. Not only do we feel it will be a great investment, but we can't wait to go back each time and explore it no matter the time of year. The condos are really spacious and well appointed. We've had a little work done on the condo, but it was in pretty good shape, although we will continue to make improvements each time we go.
What makes this Condo unique
Off the beaten path (to me that is a benefit), quiet, somewhat secluded, there's a good chance that you'll be the only one at the pool, towns are close enough but not too close. Nature is everywhere. It only takes a few minutes to find monkeys - you may find them on the property or you can take a 5 minute drive to the nearest river and most likely see them. Parrots fly over every morning. Photography opportunities everywhere.
