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.

Amazing and Wonderful

  • 5 of 5
The villa and the pool were wonderful, clean and comfortable with a view we never got tired of enjoying. Blessed with Toucans, parrots and a cute posoti to enjoy along with the view. It was secluded enough for a romantic get away and close to restaurants, shopping and the beach we will most certainly be back

A Pleasant Stay

  • 4 of 5
The house was well maintained and clean. The road to the house is very steep, but the view was beautiful. We especially enjoyed the pool and the bag of coffee was a thoughtful touch. The listing specified that there was high speed internet access, but we were unable to access the internet. Not a big deal, but since there is no phone at the house and we didn't have cell phone service, it would have been nice to be able to use it to make reservations and research restaurants and attractions in the area. It might be helpful to have some information regarding recommended restaurants and maybe some menus and brochures of activities in the area. Another suggestion would be some new sheets. Ours were a bit scratchy with a lot of pills. Overall a very pleasant stay. Thank you!

A hidden gem

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.
