Guestbook comments from the owner

With pristine mountain, ocean and valley views, Cascada Azul has it all. Nestled on a tranquil ridge east of Baru (a quaint, authentic Costa Rican village), this elegant, yet affordable gated community is the perfect Central American getaway home. As a Canadian writer seeking a peaceful -- and warm -- place to work for the winter, I was shocked to discover luxury at such prices. Management was friendly and attentive, able to book excellent and affordable excursions to area attractions on my behalf. Playa Dominical, only a five minute drive, offers everything from surfing to scuba diving to restaurants and nightlife. While not touring the area, I was content to relax at home in the pool, where I felt connected to nature. Visible on the property was a wide and beautiful array of Costa Rican wildlife, including Toucans, Aracari, Iguanas, Pizotes and Ant Eaters. At least three species of bananas grow wild here, and it was always a pleasure to see the Landlord drop by with a free bunch of Platanos to mix into a smoothie. Whether for a week or a season (I took advantage of long term rates), Cascada Azul is a treat. I'll be back.

A hidden gem

  • 4 of 5
We truly had a great stay at Cascada Azul. My family truly enjoyed the location and had a great time visiting the area, and views from the property were breath taking. The description of the properties and ammenities were quite accurate, clean and safe. Chris, the owner and Sandra, the administrator were extremely helpful allways available to answer any questions concerning the property and the area. We hope to come back next year!!!

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 4 of 5
Our visit in Costa Rica was perfect! The villa had everything we needed. It was very clean and comfortable, and waking up to the beautiful mountain vistas couldn't have been better! So very peaceful and serene.
We are building a home in the development and plan to stay here during the process. The waterfalls on the property are amazing as well as off property. Great hiking and exploring to do. Lovely flowers and birds to enjoy, and the beach is just 15 minutes down the road. The Reptile zoo was amazing as well.
We highly recommend staying here.

Tropical Paradise

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this vacation home in the middle of a mountain jungle paradise just minutes from Dominical. The home was well maintained and the pool was great. Bryan and Tracy were very helpful with places to go and things to do. We would definitely stay there again.

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5
My stay at Cascada Azul was an experience that I will never forget. The house itself was everything that I dreamed of and more. Very ready to come to and live in for extended periods of time, I was there for a month. It was properly furnished with the necessities of cooking and living. The views are tremendous with everyday waking to look down an incredible valley to the ocean. The owners and managers of the property are incredible people too. They were super helpful in letting us know what there was to do and if need be, they helped with booking the trips. From zip lining to snorkeling, and too many others to say, this is a perfect get away from the stress filled life. An excellent distance from town, not too far and not too close, it gave you a quiet place to quiet the mind and the heart. After staying here I am already planning my next trip back. Thanks again Bryan.

Cascada Azul, Excellent Choice

  • 5 of 5
My stay in Cascada Azul was excellent. We really enjoyed how peaceful and beautiful the area was. We had some amazing ocean view sunsets and the valley views were awesome. We loved seeing the lights of the tiny town of Baru below us at night, and also liked the sense of security from being in a gated community. The villa was very clean and comfortable and we had everything we needed. It was nice to be so close to the beach, surfing, rafting, ziplines, fishing, Reptile Zoo, horse back riding to Nayaca Waterwall, Manuel Antonio beach, and the city of San Isidro. All the conveniences were within 10 minutes: ATM/bank, gas, stores, restaurants, gifts, tours; yet the Villa was a private and peaceful retreat. The owners, Bryan and Tracie, were very kind and hospitable and helped our stay be excellent. We plan on coming back again and highly recommend it.
