Villa, 5 bedrooms, 5 full bathrooms, sleeps 8-10
The Kinsella/James family lives in Washington, DC. We have three daughters. Edgar James is an attorney and Katherine Kinsella is in advertising. We saw this property, fell in love with it, and purchased it in June 2012. We will continue to rent the property in the future, even after we retire here part of the year.
Katherine purchased this Villa in 2012
Why Katherine chose Puerto Escondido
Casa Tres Azules is totally private with a twelve mile beach in our front yard and easy access to Puerto Escondido, which is a very special place for those who want to be in an authentic, small Mexican city with great restaurants, people and things to do.
What makes this Villa unique
At our home we spend the days on the beach walking, swimming laps in our crystal clear pool, having cocktail sunsets and BBQ's. The deep sea fishing out of Puerto is extraordinary with Marlin, Dorado and other assorted fish. Our home is very comfortable including all pillow-top beds that our guests say are the more comfortable than home. We have high speed wireless internet, a google phone with free calls to and from the US and Canada, and satellite TV with hundreds of channels. Town is eight miles away which keeps it very quiet. We are in a secure, gated small community of only eleven homes. There are many great restaurants in town and a really nice new super market, not to mention the Mercado featuring local merchants which is a must see.

Beautiful and Relaxing
My party and I could not ask for a better vacation. Our only complaint was that it was too short. Casa Tres Azul is a picture perfect property. We spent most of our days swimming in the ocean, lazing in the pool and the eating Amelia’s fantastic food. Once you’re there it’s difficult to leave. Filomena and Paco keep the property beautifully maintained and are always helpful and accommodating. The beach is picture perfect and feels as if it’s your own private property as we hardly saw any one the entire time. The rooms are well appointed and the beds super comfy. Katherine and Martina, the property manager were always responsive to any questions but once we were there we didn’t have any reason to contact them. We can’t wait to return to Casa Tres Azul.
Beautiful villa , beautiful grounds, ocean view
This is a gorgeous property with panoramic views of the ocean and the grounds. In addition to the master bedroom, there are 3 separate casitas that are comparable to four star hotel accommodations. The staff are gracious, warm and helpful. The beautiful pool is a delight and the villa is decorated in vivid and warm colors. There is an outdoor grill and numerous places to sit and take in the beauty of this spot.
Where do I even begin...this was paradise...
Our group of 8 met in Oaxaca on the 16th, and then took an easy flight to Puerto Escondido where taxi took us to the Villa, which is an absolutely stunning Casa whose vibrant colors promised the consonant beauty within. For all of us --an extremely well-travelled group-- our stay at Casa Tres Azules was one of the most memorable vacations all of us have ever had. The house is stunning and beautifully maintained and lacks for nothing. Well appointed kitchen, clear instructions and suggestions about things tondo in the area etc. We ventured out to several nearby towns, charming local restaurants, a turtle sanctuary-- but mostly stayed at the house soaking up the sun and the perfect weather, walking the endless and mostly deserted beach, swimming in that temperate lap pool, watching the glorious display of stars each night. The owners have a strong connection to the local community, and so we felt cosseted and cared for by the lovely staff. I wish I could think of one thing that disappointed, but I cannot. This would be a great place for families or groups of friends looking for an idyllic Pacific retreat. If anything, the pictures don't do it justice. I spent hours photgraphing the house and beach in the varying light. And we all returned home completely relaxed and tan, hoping to return again soon.
I am trying to think of something that hasn't already been said here. Our four nights at Tres Azules were by far the most relaxing we've spent in years. The incomparable setting of the house leaves absolutely nothing to be desired. I spent most of my time in the ocean, something I never do. The surf was just big enough to play in the waves and never got scary (maybe we were lucky). The hardest decision we made all day was whether to hang out at the stunning pool or down on the sandy beach. A word about the pool - it's been described here as a lap pool, which it is, but you can see in the pictures that it's L-shaped and also has a large swimming/wading area. More perfection.
The three attached casitas are perfect for couples traveling together. They are all equal and beautifully and authentically appointed. The owners have excellent taste.
We booked massages that everyone agreed were among the best we've ever had - and this was a TOUGH crowd to please.
Food and service are perfection. Everything you need but never in your face. We ate in one night and also enjoyed Espadin and Lychee Thai in town.
When was the last time you didn't put shoes on until dinner?
We have had a number of excellent VRBO and other rental experiences, and this was definitely one of the best.
Once again, two years in a row, Perfect!
This was our second holiday at Casa Tres Azules, and once again found everything met and exceeded our expectations. Our party consisted of 2 couples and 2 children and the villa amenities suited us all perfectly. The owners were very responsive to our needs, the local property manager was extremely helpful and the house maid and yard workers were friendly and helpful. We hired a local woman to do all the cooking and marketing which made it like an all inclusive except it was our own very private accommodations. I have no reservations recommending Casa Tres Azules.
Balm and soothing respite!
I also am a returning guest at Casa Tres Azules… last year for two weeks with two other couples, and this year we were a party of 3 women indulging in the luxury of the spectacular setting and first class amenities. I can only echo and underline the comments in previous reviews and commend the helpful and welcoming personnel. Property manager, Martina, was most helpful and responsive to questions and requests; Amelia prepared wonderful Mexican fare for us; and housekeeping and grounds staff were attentive to every need.
I look forward already to returning next year… the roar of the surf, the meditation of swimming laps and yoga on the grass, sunrise walks and sunset talks… balm and soothing respite from northern winter!
