Guestbook comments from the owner

We rented Vista Azul for 9 days with a few of our friends (8 total). First of all, the house itself exceeded our expectations (which were based solely on the photos of the property). The house is very vertical, with lots of steps and amazing views from the top living room/kitchen/dining room area. In March 2015, when we were there, we received daily visits (around 4pm or 5pm) from roving monkeys. We could feed them bananas right inside the house! We also had a great view of a family of sloths feeding in the nearby bamboo tree. We nicknamed the iguana by the pool house "Bernice." The pool is enchanting and private with a waterfall. On days it was too warm to sun, it's nice to relax inside the pool house where you still have a great view of the pool area, but where ceiling fans cool you.



Our trip was so fantastic because of the staff at Vista Azul. Ricky was amazing and helped us several times above and beyond the call of duty. Jeff was just a friendly and helpful with cocoanut water for one of our members who took ill during the trip. Our chef was Estaban and his food was amazing! We really enjoyed the tuna he prepared, as well as his breakfast sandwiches and plenty of fresh fruit! Estaban's crab salad was delectable (and addictive!). Estaban worked very well with us as we decided each day what time to eat breakfast and dinner and what our meals would be.



Carmen was our housekeeper and she was very polite and our rooms were kept immaculately.



The whole experience was very nice. The house really feels situated in the 'jungle' with a great view of the ocean. And the location, once you reach the main road, is super convenient -- especially if you want to walk up the hill and grab lunch at Cafe Milagro!



Thanks, Vista Azul, for being such a great experience!

Wonderful House in Manuel Antonio

  • 5 of 5

This house was top notch. The rooms were all very spacious and comfortable. Ricky was a great help to us along with the maid Carmen, and the wonderful Chef Esteban. After every adventure we always looked forward to coming home to a beautiful and clean house. We saw a lot of wildlife from the living room: monkeys, sloths. and lizards. Views are incredible. We would go back in a heartbeat!

Fabulous House! Fabulous Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I went to Manuel Antonio with friends and their children. This house was perfect for all of us! The open-air living area and kitchen and pool and pool house were the perfect places for all of the kids to play and for adults to hang out. We loved having a chef every day and the food was beyond delicious! Chef Esteban was so caring about our experience and always made the details of our meal very special. Having daily cleaning and laundry was an added touch that really helps you to relax and get away from it all. We took home almost no dirty clothing and Carmen was attentive to us right up to the day we left. The staff just really make you feel welcome and cared for on vacation. The bedrooms are comfortable, air-conditioned, and peaceful at night. We woke every morning to birds, monkeys and the beautiful sun and ocean! We loved having coffee facing the water and cocktails at night to the sounds of the howler monkeys. We also loved Manuel Antonio. Again, the people of Costa Rica are so delightful. Everyone went out of their way to help us have the best time. Pablo and Rogelio for surf lessons on the beach. Mike who brought us drinks and food. The tour guides and zip line companies and restaurant staff all around the town - everyone was so kind and happy to share Pura Vida with us! We loved Costa Rica and will come back. We would stay in this house again for sure!

A Magical Place

  • 5 of 5

This was my 2nd year staying in Casa Villa Azul. Both stays were beyond anything I could have imagined. The house is incredible, and the views are breathtaking. Ricky was spot on with any request we had for the week or any repairs that needed to be done. Esteban's meals were unbelievable!! I don't think I have ever eaten SO MUCH, I kept coming back for 2nds. I promise his meals are better than any meal you could ever eat out at any restaurant. He always aims to please!! I am already looking forward to being back next year. Just an Incredible and Magical place..

The villa was fabulous! My husband an I stayed there as a part of a group for a wedding everything at the villa and Costa Rica in general was wonderful! Ricky was spot on in every situation he was there for whatever anyone needed! Ricky & Junior not only prepared tasty well presented dishes but were welcoming & very professional! Was much more than I expected.
