If you are looking for a peaceful and relaxing vacation that will provide you memories for a lifetime, I highly recommend Casa Vista Azul! My friends and I rented the home for a week to celebrate Christmas and the New Year. The property fit the 3 couples very comfortably (separate bedrooms, A/C, fully equipped kitchen and bathrooms), on-property grill, and multiple seating/relaxing areas. The property's infinity pool was a welcome relief from the heat and would be a great asset for families with children; and with direct access to the beach, it was easy to pop down to the beach for a morning walk or an afternoon playing in the surf. Each night we toasted the setting sun in the open air living room, and enjoyed the fire-pit late into the night. The property manager Mary was very helpful, suggesting we visit the bar down the beach (a 5 minute walk) or make the longer trek (by foot or car) to Lola's. Local purveyors visit the property via truck to sell fish, bread, etc. Great experience! The property is best accessed through the Liberia, CR airport. And be sure to rent an SUV as the CR roads are very "rustic". If you stay here, I strongly recommend you cook onsite for your vacation. There are some major supermarkets after leaving the Liberia airport or in Tamarindo. There are some pretty good restaurants nearby (Lola's, Villa Deveena) but CR is not known for its restaurants so you may want to do some of your own cooking. Besides, why wouldn't you want to cook some locally caught fish from the visiting truck! Highly recommend this property.
