Amazing group vacation with a great host!

  • 5 of 5

Just finished our stay at Casa Azul. The two best things about this place are Jean, the owner, and the wildlife. Jean arranged 4 tours for us last minute. He made everything super easy. If you book, listen to all of Jean's recommendations. They are spot on! The wildlife at Casa Azul was incredible. The house is right on the monkey trail, which was very entertaining. The monkeys are not aggressive if you just sit back and they are really funny. The view from the house is beautiful and having the upper splash pool as well as the lower big pool was an added bonus. The location is also great. There are many places to eat within walking distance as well as little grocery stores right down the street. Taxis in the area are actually surprisingly expensive. I would suggest finding a taxi driver and making a deal that you will use them exclusively for your whole stay for a deal. 10/10 would definitely recommend for anyone visiting Quepos/Manuel Antonio.

Spectacular in many ways

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at Villa Azul. A beautiful house with a truly amazing view and gorgeous sunsets. It is like a big, spacious oasis sitting atop the little village with monkeys who come to visit. While we were there we saw monkeys every day at the house and also saw toucans and macaws -- our kids loved it! Really liked the open floor plan. We also appreciated the conveniences of home including a kitchen with everything to cook for yourself if you want and we loved pool and huge deck, both of which we used every day.

What really made it special was how well Jean, the owner, took care of us -- it was like having a best friend in a foreign country which is really comforting. He recommended restaurants, will set up tours and excursions, ensures that you are safe and well-taken care of and is a heck of an interesting guy (in a good way).

Some things to note -- the last 500 yards getting there is tricky, we saw a few bugs here an there, there are geckos that play on the ceiling and walls, at night and in the morning you hear the sounds of the village around you, and if you like to sleep in at all, good luck because when the sun comes up, the house fills with light -- that all said, just realize that you are in jungle, and I would still give it 5 stars.

Would highly recommend this home to anyone.

Very comfortable large house, perfect for 6, fabulous ocean view and lots of monkies !

  • 5 of 5

The six of us, 4 adults and two children just loved the villa and enjoyed both the pool and jacuzzi. Up with the sun at 6 am to admire the spectacular views from the terrasses and often back again at the house for the beautiful sunsets in the ocean. Good location with a practical bus stop and small supermarkets close by. Short bus ride to the beach and to the national park. Our host Jean was just perfect, very helpful, very reactive when needed and giving us good practical advise, thank you ! We saw more monkies at the villa than anywhere else, lots of mothers carrying their babies on the back, very quick, excellent jumpers and climbers and not really afraid of humans - you have to be careful not to leave any bananas around ! The weather was just gorgeous during our 6 night stay, we would gladly have stayed longer. Hope to be back one day. Pura vida !

Perfect House, Unbeatable Views, Great Host

  • 5 of 5

This villa was the perfect choice for our first trip to Manuel Antonio. It is centrally located with restaurants, stores, and a bus stop just down the street. The scenery has it all- top floor is above the canopy with unblocked ocean and sunset views, lower floors surrounded by fruit trees and wildlife. A group of monkeys(10-15) stopped by every morning to relax and play on the pool deck for an hour or two. Watching them from the balcony was a great way to get the day started and beat anything we saw at the national park. The surrounding jungle and being near the top of the hill provided great privacy.

In addition to the villa setup being excellent, having Jean as a host was an added bonus. He set up our ride from the airport and gave us a rundown of everything we needed to know on arrival- transportation, food, things to do... He took care of setting up the tours we chose and kept us informed of daily specials at area restaurants.

After experiencing the great views, wildlife, private pool and hospitality at this villa, we will definitely stay here again on future trips.
