Amazing group vacation with a great host!

  • 5 of 5

Just finished our stay at Casa Azul. The two best things about this place are Jean, the owner, and the wildlife. Jean arranged 4 tours for us last minute. He made everything super easy. If you book, listen to all of Jean's recommendations. They are spot on! The wildlife at Casa Azul was incredible. The house is right on the monkey trail, which was very entertaining. The monkeys are not aggressive if you just sit back and they are really funny. The view from the house is beautiful and having the upper splash pool as well as the lower big pool was an added bonus. The location is also great. There are many places to eat within walking distance as well as little grocery stores right down the street. Taxis in the area are actually surprisingly expensive. I would suggest finding a taxi driver and making a deal that you will use them exclusively for your whole stay for a deal. 10/10 would definitely recommend for anyone visiting Quepos/Manuel Antonio.

Loved this

  • 5 of 5

Loved the area, the house, the week spent. Pool, view, and proximity were key for us, monkey and beautiful bird visits a bonus. Great for a family, both adults and kids. Jean was terrific with suggestions and British sense of humor. Great combination of beach, jungles, outdoors, wildlife viewing. One bonus we didn't expect was all the great food to go with it (Emilio's we miss you already). This is something we will try to do again, scheduling is our only issue. Thank you Jean!

Spacious villa, awesome views, wildlife and birds, close to everything! Driveway very steep but we rented scooters to deal with that, Jean is a great host and always there if you need help or suggestions on what to do or where to go.

Great location & incredible views!

  • 5 of 5

The home & outside decks are very open & spacious. It feels like a treehouse with windows everywhere looking into the tree tops. The views from the upper level & deck are incredible. So nice to see from sun up to sun down. We had toucans and many birds everyday & monkeys on several days. The home is a short walk to grocery, many restaurants & shops.

Jean arranged a ride to & from the airport and had wonderful tour & restaurant recommendations. Our favorite tours were the Canopy Tour (zip lining) & the Manuel Antonio National Park tour - Manuel, our guide was fabulous - so knowledgable and personable. Our zip line guide, Andres, was also very knowledgable and the whole group of guys made it really fun.

Jean arranges for a woman to clean midweek. She will also wash clothes for a small fee. Our family of 6 (4 kids ages 12-20) were very comfortable there. Kitchen has all the essentials. There's no oven. We still cooked full meals several nights and ate out others. The A/C & dishwasher work very well. Water upstairs is all room temp. Downstairs shower has hot water if you need a hot shower. The house is all solar powered! We loved the pool on the upper deck.

Sancho's was our favorite restaurant. It was right down the street.

Our family had a great vacation with memories to last a lifetime.

Thank you so much for everything Jean!

Perfect house for a Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 could not have been more happy with Jean's beautiful house! It was spotlessly clean, huge and has THE BEST VIEWS! Beds were very comfortable. The pool and Splash pool made the stay even better. We sat in the splash pool every evening to watch the sunset over the ocean. We enjoyed the pool each day after our excursions and best of all got to watch a family of monkeys play around the pool on 3 separate days! Three toucans popped over to the tree next to the splash tree one evening to our delight! And we saw scarlet macaws on several occasions. Jean acted as our concierge and we took his advice on excursions and restaurants- he was SPOT ON for everything! Angel's restaurant has excellent and inexpensive Costa Rican food and Sancho's had excellent Mexican fare. Both just down the driveway from the house!

Be sure to have Jean book your tour guide for the National Park tour- it was the highlight of the trip. Thank you Jean, we had an amazing trip !!!!!!!! Laura :)

Spectacular in many ways

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at Villa Azul. A beautiful house with a truly amazing view and gorgeous sunsets. It is like a big, spacious oasis sitting atop the little village with monkeys who come to visit. While we were there we saw monkeys every day at the house and also saw toucans and macaws -- our kids loved it! Really liked the open floor plan. We also appreciated the conveniences of home including a kitchen with everything to cook for yourself if you want and we loved pool and huge deck, both of which we used every day.

What really made it special was how well Jean, the owner, took care of us -- it was like having a best friend in a foreign country which is really comforting. He recommended restaurants, will set up tours and excursions, ensures that you are safe and well-taken care of and is a heck of an interesting guy (in a good way).

Some things to note -- the last 500 yards getting there is tricky, we saw a few bugs here an there, there are geckos that play on the ceiling and walls, at night and in the morning you hear the sounds of the village around you, and if you like to sleep in at all, good luck because when the sun comes up, the house fills with light -- that all said, just realize that you are in jungle, and I would still give it 5 stars.

Would highly recommend this home to anyone.
