Incredible views, very clean and safe.
The house has an amazing view! There is a lot of outdoor space which really allows you to enjoy the surroundings. We had chef Esteban who was the best cook I've ever seen! Valerie helped us coordinate some trips before we arrived and Ricky was extremely helpful with last minute excursions. I had a wonderful time here. Would highly recommend it!
The activity sheet that they provide has some of the highest rated tours in the area. I would take advantage of as many as you can.
Our stay at Casa Vista Azul was terrific
We had a thoroughly enjoyable week-long stay in Manuel Antonio at Casa Vista Azul! The place was perfect for our group of 9 -- enough space to spread out and also to come together to watch the sun set at cocktail hour, play cards in the afternoon and evening, and dine at the perfect-sized dining table. Having Esteban as chef was terrific -- the meals were varied and excellent. At first we only chose off the menu but then learned we could expand on that and did. The villa is perfectly situated, making us walk up the hill and get a tiny bit of exercise when doing that; walking to the gym, stores, and restaurants was no problem at all. In going back we'd probably make one change, which would be to not rent any cars -- getting around via taxi (and the provided vans when we went into the national park, ziplining, and on our ATV excursion) is hassle-free and all that we'd need.
Beautiful house-great location
Beautiful house with amazing view. Enjoyed our visit from the curious monkeys! Perfect for a girls trip...although those of us sleeping in 2 rooms down by the pool were less than thrilled...master and upper rooms amazing. Thank goodness for the elevator. Very clean and well-maintained. Do not recommend house for little kids but perfect for families with older kids or adults only.
The house manager was helpful but we would have liked a visit or call every day to make sure we didn't need anything or just to check in. I get that some people don't like that though so no big deal.
Recommend jet skis/snorkeling and the waterfall tour by Paddle 9.
Great trip...would stay here again!
Amazing stay and a wonderful time! The house was perfect and the staff was amazing to make sure every part of our trip was taken care of. Everything was so easy. Can't wait to go back!
Such a beauty to behold
My visit to Casa Vista Azul (Manuel Antonio) was exactly what I hoped it would be. My friends and I were there for a girls' trip.We arrived in the wee morning hours and our host, Rickey, was there waiting to greet us. He thoroughly explained all that we needed to know and was just a phone call away when we had questions on what to do and places to see. He was very COOL and ACCOMADATING! Our chef, Stephan, was AMAZING! I cleaned my plate with every meal. He catered to our whims and didn't disappoint. And neither did the villa. SIMPLY GORGEOUS! The pictures do not convey the sense of calm and relaxation that is felt everyday. In addition, to the open family room, my bedroom had screened sliding doors that opened to the outdoor pool and the bathroom continued that feeling of bringing the outdoors in. It was PERFECT! Carmen, our housekeeper, took care to ensure that everything was in order and clean each day. I took great pleasure in being so close to nature with the monkeys, hummingbirds, exotic plant life and the ocean breeze and sounds. I honestly didn't want to leave. Things of note: 1. the environment catered to English speaking tourists, I never felt as if I needed to speak Spanish 2. It was ok to pay in dollars but it was easier to pay in colones (cabs, food, etc.) 3. There were one or two flying insects in the family room at night but after while I didn't notice them 4. There is only a single light in the pool itself. I needed more lighting to swim near the waterfall but otherwise the villa exterior is well lit. 5. The walk from the villa to the main road was a workout with the inclines but I didn't let that stop me from exploring. Thank you to the staff at Escape Villas for making this an enjoyable experience. I will be back with my family next time.
EXCELLENT STAY, GREAT CHEF, WORKED AWESOME FOR A LARGE GROUP
The house was perfect for our group of 15. Everyone had their own suite. The multi-levels, gave us some privacy and common gathering areas. We were 7 couples.
The chef was great. He does not talk much, but he cooks whatever you want however you want. I would never travel with a group this large without a chef.
The management agency is at the entrance which makes it easy. Ricki will get you whatever you want or need. He got all of us on a boat and took care of massages.
The cleaning staff was great. This is a big house to clean, but they were on top of it everyday.
The kitchen has doors that close to keep the monkeys out. The living and dining areas are open. We had visitors every night. Two kinds of monkeys, sloths, iguanas, and others.
The main asset is the view. The view is amazing.
You can walk (uphill) to bars and restaurants, grocery stores, pharmacy, and early nightlife. Stay away from the Bylbos Casino. We watched them deal out of turn with marked cards.
You can drive to the beach in town, or the one in the hotel district. All within 3 minutes.
Our only disappointments were the waterfall and pool. We really wish the waterfall was working. They tried to get it going, but it appears the problem is much greater than it appears.
The pool is a little smaller than we thought, but it did the job. there is a longer area for laps, and a communal area.
We thank you for your excellent review and sincerely apologize for the inconvenience of the waterfall. After 10 years of great, and almost constant service ( old faithful :)), our waterfall developed a leak and we had to temporarily shut it off during your stay. We are currently fixing it and hope to have it working this week. The staff at Escape Villas appreciates all comments and we are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Casa Vista Azul.
