TRANQUIL, EXTREMELY PRIVATE VILLA WITH SURF AND OCEAN VIEWS

Playa San Miguel Villa Rental Photos and Description

House - 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s) - 4.5+ Baths - (Sleeps 10)

Luna Azul can accommodate groups of up to 10 people and has been furnished with families in mind. Facilities were constructed to North American standards for safety and convenience. In addition, maintenance and service are provided by a separately housed caretaker. Ask them about fresh fruit from the property! Nearby restaurants and Hotel Punta Islita offers four star dining, spa and golf opportunities.

The location makes this an adventure property. The environment creates an opportunity to indulge across a full spectrum from solitude to elegance to local nightlife at several bars in the area. Rather than retreat to air conditioned isolation, the house is designed for life 'in the breeze' - soaking in the rich tropical sights, sounds and smells inaccessible to those that decline to adjust to equatorial climates. That's not to say comfort is secondary! Shade, pools, outdoor showers, hammocks and fans are strategically maintained to encourage guests to constantly seek interaction with the unique experiences this elevated refuge presents: monkeys howling at sunrise, tree frogs singing at night, birds playing in the trees in the late afternoon shade, raptors, vultures and storks seeking thermals - coming up and right over your head as you relax in the pool ... can't get that stuff in a hotel room!

If Surfing is what you're looking for, look no further. Playa Camaronal access requires no river crossings so it's ready to go even during wet season ... 15 minutes from the house. Playa San Miguel can produce phenomenal combo swells. Other breaks in the area are yours to explore! Just a beginner? Soft top surfboards and our recommended beach is a sure recipe for success.

Accomodations - Lounging - Adventure: Luna Azul can accommodate groups of up to 10 people and has been furnished with families in mind. Facilities were constructed to North American standards for safety and convenience. There's plenty of space for two families to enjoy lounging by the pool, swinging in hammocks, cooking, swimming, floating and relaxing on top of this comfortable, breeze-swept ridgeline ... away from it all but with assistance at the ready should you need it. A 'jungle' trail has been gently maintained on the property below the house for morning walks and wildlife viewing - guided by onsite staff if desired! A favorite routine is to pack up coolers full of goodies and sand chairs, head to one of the local beaches for a morning surf/swim then return to the pool, shade and breeze for the afternoon. Simple, adventurous, satisfying.

Wide Range of Beach Opportunities: Fantastic family surf adventures waiting for those ready to venture out to the broad range of beaches within 30 minutes drive of the house. Playa Coyote has a gentle sloping, sheltered beach that is great for whitewash adventures and the inexperienced. Grab one of the soft-top surfboards at the house and get pics of the kids on their first stand-up! Playa San Miguel has a more challenging wave and great beach play family-style. This is our go-to beach for surf, coolers of beer, fresh fruit and lazy mornings in the shade of coco palms while the tide gets just right for a paddle out. Smaller surf is beginner friendly, sizeable combo swells can challenge any surfing level. Playa Camaronal is a fantastic break that can hold pretty good size. Limited shade and heavily sloped beach make this primarily a surfer's beach. There are shade opportunities and a turtle sanctuary for those not surfing - just ask and we'll tell you how to dial up a memorable family day at any beach.

Food!: The convenience of breakfast at your own pace and time is invaluable. The morning light playing on the estuary below is a constant distraction. Local groceries in Pueblo Nuevo, Bejuco, Corrozalito, San Francisco de Coyote mean fresh produce and provisions for any level of culinary activity desired. Very convenient to stop and grab a cool drink and any items you need on the way home from the beaches. Produce delivery can be arranged a couple days a week through our caretaker. Don't feel like making lunch or dinner? Dining choices range from rustic bocas (mouthfulls - like tapas) and bar fare to fried whole pargo (red snapper caught locally) drizzled with fresh mandarina juice in Pueblo Nuevo (La Conga and Los Corrales) to very comfortable view dining at Casa Caletas in near Playa Coyote and 4 star international dining at Punta Islita resort ... all within 30 minutes via country road from the property.

While Southern California has great climate, we wanted to find a place where the surf was warm year round ... and a bit less crowded.

After many years of trips to surf with Tico friends, we decided to explore properties in the areas we enjoyed the most ... away from crowded line ups and tourism crowds. This area's gentle ranching culture, fabulous beaches, predictable surf and beautiful weather lured us. The view and steady breezes of this ridgetop property sealed the deal.

My husband & I stayed at Luna Azul from 2/29/14-3/4/14. I wish I were there now! The house is beautiful and the patio was divine! The furnishings inside and out were very comfortable. We spent all our time outside only going in to go to bed. The sunsets were spectacular with 4 monkeys playing in the tree next to the pool at the same time. Antonio and his wife were quite welcoming and made our stay very nice. My husband and I have been traveling throughout the Caribbean and Central America for many years and I have to say that this is the safest we have ever felt. We felt comfortable enough to leave the slider open at night. The hill that the house is on is too steep to try to climb and any cars must go through the locked gate @ Antonio's house. In fact the whole area is very safe. I was a little skeptical about no air conditioning in the bedrooms, however I wouldn't have used it if it was there. The breezes at night are heavenly, we even used a blanket a few of the nights! We went to local restaurants and hotels for meals and drinks and there were very few other tourists there. The beaches are beautiful and we were often the only people on them. I highly recommend this property for a relaxing vacation. We can't wait to go back!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the positive review! This is exactly how the property was designed to be enjoyed - with deep appreciation of elemental Costa Rica. The air, the breeze, the locals (human and animal!), the surrounding community, the beaches ... all with unique ridge top perspective and exposure.

Luna Azul looks forward to your return.

We have just returned from 2 weeks at Luna azul and will definitely be back! We have rented homes all over the world and this is truly a very special home in a gorgeous location. Our family loved the extremely remote and private setting, the empty beaches and surf and the endless sunshine. You really have a gem in Luna azul.

We loved Luna azul! It was everything & more than we ever expected - the owners of the property gave us an information packet that was full of great information about the area that was very helpful. Lots to see & do or not do - if you choose not to. The house was fabulous and very comfortable - I could have sat there all week long and just enjoyed the view - it was beautiful! Lots of room for a party of 10 to be very comfortable together. I would recommend it to anyone - it really was paradise!

Beautiful house and view. Spectacular sunsets every night. Caretaker on the property who attends to every need. The infinity pool is a highlight and always perfectly clean. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need to make a gourmet meal. Local markets are close.

It is very remote with 4 wheel drive required. There are great beaches a short distance away and local restaurants close by. For the more adventurous, driving up and down the coast to other towns and beaches is a lot of fun. Try to visit the Islita Hotel for a drink or dinner.

Although most businesses take american dollars, very few take credit cards. Bring small bills: ones, fives, tens as well. There are gringos around but if you speak Spanish it is a plus.

Truly one of the best vacations I have ever had!

Luna azul is paradise in a rural setting.

Our group drove the 3 1/2 hours from Liberia airport. One and one-half hours of that is on dirt road, so a 4WD is suggested (we didn't rent them). Also suggested is that you take the road from Samara along the coast rather than inland. If you enjoy relaxing in a paradise setting with few distractions, you'll love Luna azul. The scenery is spectacular, the beaches gorgeous and out-of-towners sparse. We totally enjoyed the food at Pueblo Nuevo, conversing with the owner, Denise, several times. It helped that a few of our group knew some Spanish. Andre, at Treehouse Pizza, was gracious enough to open his place and make us several pizzas when we showed up at his place one evening. Definitely make plans to visit the The Butterfly Farm where Mike will dazzle you with his impressive knowledge of local bees, bats and insects. The local beaches are filled with the nests of sea turtles, and we saw remnants of hatchlings who had found their way back to the ocean. If you enjoy sea fishing, the on-site caretaker, Antonio, can set you up with someone to take you out, as our group enjoyed. Our group asked about horseback riding, and antonio saw to it that local "guides" came by to pick us up with horses for a nice two-hour ride around the local area. An 8-section zip-line course is also available a half hour away at Punta Islita Hotel. The ten people in our group had plenty of room and enjoyed making use of the spacious kitchen and outdoor BBQ. It was definitely one of the most relaxing vacations we've ever enjoyed.
