Guestbook comments from the manager

With pristine mountain, ocean and valley views, Cascada Azul has it all. Nestled on a tranquil ridge east of Baru (a quaint, authentic Costa Rican village), this elegant, yet affordable gated community is the perfect Central American getaway home. As a Canadian writer seeking a peaceful -- and warm -- place to work for the winter, I was shocked to discover luxury at such prices. Management was friendly and attentive, able to book excellent and affordable excursions to area attractions on my behalf. Playa Dominical, only a five minute drive, offers everything from surfing to scuba diving to restaurants and nightlife. While not touring the area, I was content to relax at home in the pool, where I felt connected to nature. Visible on the property was a wide and beautiful array of Costa Rican wildlife, including Toucans, Aracari, Iguanas, Pizotes and Ant Eaters. At least three species of bananas grow wild here, and it was always a pleasure to see the Landlord drop by with a free bunch of Platanos to mix into a smoothie. Whether for a week or a season (I took advantage of long term rates), Cascada Azul is a treat. I'll be back.

House was as described, high on a ridge above Dominical

  • 3 of 5

This nice house is hard to get to, 4wd a must. On site property manager was helpful and nice and spoke very good English ( our Spanish is so so). Nice small pool overlooking the valley that leads to the Pacific and Dominical. It is a few miles away. Limited sunset view, a gap between the mountains is your ocean view - as advertised. Cabinets smelled strongly of bug spray, almost disgustingly so. Adequate, not great collection of dishes and pots and pans. One teaspoon. Nice stove, huge. Small grill that worked fine, full sized refrigerator. Beds were adequate, not good. Shower and bath were nice, furniture was nice. Do NOT drink the water, even the "filtered" water. It has a small dirt and impurity filter attached to one part of the sink, does NOT make water safe to drink. We ended up with a bit of la turista. All in all a nice, remote place. No animals around, occasional toucan. Too far away to explore much, perfect for staying home and chilling with bottled water

Great location with an amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay and we were just as pleased as our first stay. The villa is well appointed, comfortable and convenient to Dominical, as well as San Isidro and all points on the southern pacific coast. The surroundings are stunningly beautiful, peaceful and quiet and the bonus of having a private waterfall to hike to is unmatched!

Great Location with a Beautiful View!

  • 5 of 5

This rental was perfect for my family of four (2 adults and 2 children). It was truly 10 minutes to the beach 10 minutes to the waterfalls for hiking and had several options for dining close by. The pool was so refreshing at night after an afternoon on the beach and the hammock got used many times of the day! It was helpful to have a washer dryer in the home. The house was stocked with dishes, pots & pans, etc but lacked some general things like paper towels, salt and pepper, and maybe some extra towels. It would have been nice to have beach towels and/or chairs since we were traveling and couldn't bring with us. We loved our stay here and the owner was extremely responsive to any needs!

Perfect for a Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

This villa is adjacent to 10 condos and 2 neighboring two bedroom villas. This was the perfect destination for a fun family reunion. Safe and secure in a gated community, we found it very peaceful and private, but convenient to stores, excursions, the beach, and restaurants. There were 4 separate pool areas. The largest one with the condos was perfect for everyone to gather and have a BBQ and swim party. The private pools with each Villa were also nice for smaller gatherings. And it was perfect to have private rooms with private baths to escape to each night with satellite TV. All the homes were fresh and new and well appointed. Very comfortable and the host was a delight; always available when needed, but otherwise giving us our privacy. All this along with a great price. Highly recommend!!

9 days in the Rainforest is not enough...

  • 5 of 5

We are property owners in Cascada Azul so this was the perfect spot for us to stay. The Villa is as described. The property is situated in a location that takes advantage of the ocean and valley views. From the kitchen window each morning we could see monkeys in the trees and each evening we would see and hear the toucans. The home is equipped with everything you need for cooking and eating at home, but if you prefer to go out there are many options. We enjoyed eating at El Chicote which is near the main road that leads to Dominical. The Dominical Supermarket has a decent selection of groceries and it's close to the home. We are having a home built in Cascada Azul but until it is finished we will stay in this villa when we visit!

Amazing and Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

The villa and the pool were wonderful, clean and comfortable with a view we never got tired of enjoying. Blessed with Toucans, parrots and a cute posoti to enjoy along with the view. It was secluded enough for a romantic get away and close to restaurants, shopping and the beach we will most certainly be back
