RAINFOREST JUNGLE LOCATION WITH OCEANVIEWS & WATERFALL POOL

Playa Flamingo Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (sleeps 4 )

Between 1995 - 1997, during my travels to Costa Rica, I came upon a parcel of land in the early stages of development. I had searched from the tip of the Nicoya Penninsula to Playa de Coco for the ideal location to build my dream home and possible a few units for friends that would occasionally want to come down. When I happened on Villa Mar Azul I knew I had found my location. Situated in the foothills just above the sleepy little town of Haucas Villa Mar Azul is for the person that wants to experience the true Costa Rica. Although we have Wifi, cable TV, Air conditioning through out we would not be considered a 5 star resort. If you prefer to be waited on hand and foot Villa Mar Azul is not for you. Primarily for the reason that we are trying to attract the traveler that would prefer to steer clear of all the trappings a mega resort affords. See, you just can't get the real local feel in the resort setting. And I truly believe you will go home much more relaxed when you live the Pura VIda pace in a boutique resort setting such as Villa Mar Azul. But don't take my word for it peruse the photos, watch the video and make the decision for your self. You will not be disapointed your first or your tenth stay, I assure you.

Keywords: A secluded villa in a jungle setting with monkeys, iguanas & many species of birds. Relax where time stands still. Go zip lining, water rafting, Volcano treking or just lay underneath the waterfall cascading into the pool. The choice is yours with many attractions nearby including white sand beaches. Or you might just find the seclusion, and a massage, at our jungle location pleasing to the body and soul.

About Jerry Martin

I have always loved to travel to foriegn destinations. It wasn't until I started going to Central America that I really found my calling. Being a So Calif native and surfing all my life it was the perfect destination to plant some roots. Villa Mar Azul is tucked away on the hillside overlooking the town of Haucas and the La Garita Valley. You are surrounded by wildlife with the Howler Monkeys waking you in the morning. Our security system consists of 2 dogs and a caretaker. Outside of that you will be at one with the natural setting of the jungle. Please come join me and experience the true Costa Rica.

Jerry Martin purchased this villa in 1997

Why Jerry Martin chose Playa Flamingo

Villa Mar Azul is not on the beach but tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist enclaves nearby. I wanted to design a retreat for small groups to be at one with nature. The tourist town of Tamarindo is 10 mins to the south and the towns of Brasilito & Playa Flamingo are just 10 mins to the north all offering restaurants and shopping. Playa Grande, with its white sandy beaches and beautiful surf is 15 mins to the west. You will find Haucas to be a very pleasant town made up of restaurants, markets, a pharmacy and curios shops for those hard to find locally handcrafted items.

What makes this villa unique

The seclusion adds to the laid back feel of living off the grid. I find myself completely relaxed during my stays and the afternoon siesta becomes a daily ritual to look forward to. In the evening a light dinner at Punta Tranquillo, the resturant at the bottom of the hill, is not to be missed. Make sure and try the ceviche. All in all if you are coming to Costa Rica for the nightlife I can recommend many other locations that will suit your needs. But if you like the natural setting, uncrowded beaches and the ocasional massage on our 180 degree view veranda you have found your Shangra La.

First Trip to Costa Rica

  • 4 of 5
Our first trip to Costa Rica will be a memorable one. Our stay at Villa Mar Azul was peaceful, pictureque and private. It was great to have our own pool to cool off in. We heard the howler monkeys in the morning and enjoyed watching the beautiful birds everywhere. The caretaker, Carlos was very helpful and a pleasure to deal with. We would recommend it to nature lovers.

SECLUSION YET CONVIENIENT

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I and two teenage children, 17&19 just spent 12 days of relaxation here, the view is amazing in every direction, the house was spotless and the pool was a great place to just relax, Carlo's, the on site concierge and jack of all trades was the perfect host. He was invisible that is until you called him, which we needed to do a couple of times, then he was there in a blink of an eye, and always answered our question or fixed our problem., wildlife everywhere but no people, and the dogs warned you if anyone or thing was approaching, you must love dogs, but they are loveable and so well behaved. they hiked the mountain with my son and I and always greeted us when we returned. convienient 10 to 30 minutes from about 8 beaches, store just 4 minutes away, 3 minutes of that is the driveway down the mountain. you do need a 4 x 4 vehicle to get around . it was our peace of paradise at the end of every day.

Just a great place to relax and take it in!

  • 5 of 5
My wife, myself and our 3 boys spent a month and a half at Mar Azul.

Our favorite things: the incredible sunsets, the quiet, the stars at night, the privacy, the monkeys, the pool and waterfall, bbqs, and just the serenity of the surrounding jungle.

The villa is about 5 minutes away from Huacas, and 15 from Tamarindo. Lots of great beaches and restaurants within a short drive. A very convenient. And very private. The only people you will see at Mar Azul are Carlos and Yohanna who live on the property. They are incredibly gracious and genuinely helpful people. It's great to know that someone's there to help you out if needed.

We work on-line so internet's a big deal to us - it worked perfectly. When the power went out (as it sometimes does in CR), we were able to tether off our ipads via 3G signal to keep in touch.

The owner Jerry is great to work with. Super quick with responses. I would not hesitate in the slightest to visit Mar Azul again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Mike & Ves. You guys were great people to work with and you've stated what I attempt to get across to every inquirer. The Villa is not for everybody but if you are looking for the real CR experience you can't beat Mar Azul. Thanks again and hurry back.

Beautiful and peaceful!!!

  • 5 of 5
My visit and stay to Marazul was absolutely wonderful. This property is for individuals and families who are looking for privacy and a peaceful place to stay. The valley view will take your breath away....very tranquil. It's like your own peace of heaven....very, very private. The drive to Haucas takes 2 min...and the drive to Playa Grande // Flamingo beach is 10 min. I loved staying at this property.....views...convenience to great grocery store...2 min...I felt extremely safe with (2) individuals living full-time on the property...Harold and Yohanna. If I want to go bargain shopping...Tamarindo is only 15 drive up the road. Super convenient...safe....I LOVED the privacy!!! I will go back again and again!!! Monkeys...and the beautiful stars at night is what I miss the most...floating in the pool...all by our selves : ).

Pura Vida,
