Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Pajaro Azul - 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 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, full length balcony on the rear of the house. There are two tables and eight chairs there as well as a gas grill. There is another table with four 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 pool is well lighted for evening swimming.

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.

New, tropical landscaping for the property attracts many species of birds and provides privacy.

We have a manager and concierge team, Jennifer and David Wagganer, 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.

Casa Azul 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 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 and 2015. We hope those who have been prior guests enjoy the new things.

About Andy Thierry owner, handles reservations. David Wagganer is the concierge in CR

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.

Andy Thierry owner, handles reservations. David Wagganer is the concierge in CR purchased this villa in 2013

Why Andy Thierry owner, handles reservations. David Wagganer is the concierge in CR chose Quepos

First, the natural beauty and diversity of the area. Second, The people, handsome, noble, hard working and friendly. Third, the charm and comfort of Casa Azul. Fourth, the close availability to all sorts of activities. Last, but not least the management team. Jennifer and David will be your manager and concierge during your stay. Jaha and Carmen, our domestic engineers, will make sure the Casa is tidy when you return from your trips or excursions.

What makes this villa unique

We have never seen a view like that seen from the house. It can be enjoyed day and night. The ocean, town, and mountains offer a panoramic view. The house has both charm and comfort, a rare find.

The design and layout of the house is good for larger groups. We stayed with our children and grandchildren for ten days. The house never felt crowded with nine people and we still were able to enjoy our privacy.

The Casa is surrounded by a lockable fence. There is an alarm system for security.

The house and property were extensively remodeled in 2014 and 2015. Most of the furnishings and all of the appliances are new.

Casa Azul is out of town yet close to everything. Many of the local tours know our location by the name 'Casa Azul'. See the youtube video of our family on some of the various tours.

We also own Casa Moreno which is a neighbor to Casa Azul. Conctruction was completed in January of 2016. The villa is similar in size and design to Casa Azul. It can also accommodate 10 people. It you have a large group, both houses will work well together. Casa Moreno can be seen at vrbo.com/793172.

Amazing Property and Great Service

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed with a group including four adults and four children at Casa Azul. The home was lovely and well cared for. The views were spectacular, especially from the pool which was very well maintained. The property managers were quick to respond to any needs that we had and helpful with activities in the area. The driveway is steep, and parking for two SUVs was tight, but we would certainly stay again. The owner was also very quick to respond to any questions and extremely helpful.

GREAT HOUSE WITH AMAZING VIEWS

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience vacationing at Casa Azul! The information provided about the property was accurate. The house is clean and well maintaned. The cleaning person came daily to make sure everything was working fine. Children and adults enjoyed the inviting pool.

Finding the house was a little bit challenging as well dealing with the very steep access road. Once up there the views compensate for the uphill trip.

Definitely we will recommend this property to friends and relatives!

STUNNING VIEW!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, children, grandchildren and I stayed at Casa Azul for a few days and we absolutely LOVED the place. The house along with the view is GORGEOUS! David and Jennifer are extremely hospitable and accommodating! There were 8 of us and there was plenty of room to accommodate us very comfortably. I highly recommend staying at Casa Azul if you are visiting the area, you won't regret it! I hope to return again one day!

Wonderful Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our nine days at Casa Azul was everything we had hoped for!

David and Jennifer were responsive to any need, and anything that needed taking care of was done immediately! They booked our tour, called a taxi if we needed it, and were generally just gracious about any request.

The views were spectacular, the locals are friendly and the area is wonderful for those that want the adventure and Eco tourism, and it's also great for just slowing down and getting away from the 'real world'.

The luxury of a private pool with deck, and the upper patio giving you even higher views for spectacular shows by the local birds! Butterflies hummingbirds and all sorts of other exotic and colourful animals!

We didn't rent a car, generally hailed taxis after walking down the hill to the main road. We attempted the local bus route but the roads to the nearest stop were narrow and winding without sidewalks, and the taxis are economical when shared. Most trips cost between $4 &$10 US depending on the type of vehicle, the length of the trip (&then challenge getting up the hill) and the number of passengers. Look for SUVs if there are four or more sharing a ride, especially on the way home!

I would definitely recommend this vacation home, and I would return in a heartbeat!

One of our best family vacations ever!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from Casa Azul and it was truly one of our best vacations ever. Jennifer and David took great care of us, planning our excursions, our meals with personal chefs, our transportation, etc. I only wish they could plan all our trips! Our family of seven enjoyed every minute in Quepos. We went deep sea fishing and had Chef Nissum prepare our catch. We went zip lining and then went to watch one of our guides from the trip in a local soccer (Futbol if you prefer) match. We went on a catamaran tour with fantastic snorkeling and dolphin watching. We finished our trip with a visit to Manuel Antonio park. (I would personally recommend you hire a guide outside the park. I don't think we would have seen near the animals, etc. had we not.) We happened upon a wonderful small beach near the entrance to the park on our first day and went back three times. People working there helped us (for a nominal fee) with parking, beach chairs, umbrellas and surfing lessons!

The house was incredible! The view, I would imagine, is the best in Quepos. The house had everything we could possible need to make ourselves very comfortable for the week. It has wifi, stereo, multiple tvs, infiniti pool, washer dryer and a well appointed kitchen. The best amenity for this mom - a daily housekeeper!!! The people are so friendly! We made friends with several of our guides, David and Jennifer, our chef and his lovely wife, etc.

I can not say enough great things about the service, the home and the town of Quepos. We will be back! Pura Vida - The Sarcars

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 Alamo. Rentals rates are reasonable.

It is similar in size to Casa Azul with the same amenities. This will enable us to accommodate up to 20 people between the two villas. They are in easy walking distance of each other. This would work well for large family gatherings, weddings, and events.
