Playa San Miguel villa description

Luna Azul can accommodate groups of up to 10 people and has been furnished with families in mind. Facilities were constructed to North American standards for safety and convenience. In addition, maintenance and service are provided by a separately housed caretaker. Ask them about fresh fruit from the property! Nearby restaurants and Hotel Punta Islita offers four star dining, spa and golf opportunities.

The location makes this an adventure property. The environment creates an opportunity to indulge across a full spectrum from solitude to elegance to local nightlife at several bars in the area. Rather than retreat to air conditioned isolation, the house is designed for life 'in the breeze' - soaking in the rich tropical sights, sounds and smells inaccessible to those that decline to adjust to equatorial climates. That's not to say comfort is secondary! Shade, pools, outdoor showers, hammocks and fans are strategically maintained to encourage guests to constantly seek interaction with the unique experiences this elevated refuge presents: monkeys howling at sunrise, tree frogs singing at night, birds playing in the trees in the late afternoon shade, raptors, vultures and storks seeking thermals - coming up and right over your head as you relax in the pool ... can't get that stuff in a hotel room!

If Surfing is what you're looking for, look no further. Playa Camaronal access requires no river crossings so it's ready to go even during wet season ... 15 minutes from the house. Playa San Miguel can produce phenomenal combo swells. Other breaks in the area are yours to explore! Just a beginner? Soft top surfboards and our recommended beach is a sure recipe for success.


Accomodations - Lounging - Adventure: Luna Azul can accommodate groups of up to 10 people and has been furnished with families in mind. Facilities were constructed to North American standards for safety and convenience. There's plenty of space for two families to enjoy lounging by the pool, swinging in hammocks, cooking, swimming, floating and relaxing on top of this comfortable, breeze-swept ridgeline ... away from it all but with assistance at the ready should you need it. A 'jungle' trail has been gently maintained on the property below the house for morning walks and wildlife viewing - guided by onsite staff if desired! A favorite routine is to pack up coolers full of goodies and sand chairs, head to one of the local beaches for a morning surf/swim then return to the pool, shade and breeze for the afternoon. Simple, adventurous, satisfying.

Wide Range of Beach Opportunities: Fantastic family surf adventures waiting for those ready to venture out to the broad range of beaches within 30 minutes drive of the house. Playa Coyote has a gentle sloping, sheltered beach that is great for whitewash adventures and the inexperienced. Grab one of the soft-top surfboards at the house and get pics of the kids on their first stand-up! Playa San Miguel has a more challenging wave and great beach play family-style. This is our go-to beach for surf, coolers of beer, fresh fruit and lazy mornings in the shade of coco palms while the tide gets just right for a paddle out. Smaller surf is beginner friendly, sizeable combo swells can challenge any surfing level. Playa Camaronal is a fantastic break that can hold pretty good size. Limited shade and heavily sloped beach make this primarily a surfer's beach. There are shade opportunities and a turtle sanctuary for those not surfing - just ask and we'll tell you how to dial up a memorable family day at any beach.

Food!: The convenience of breakfast at your own pace and time is invaluable. The morning light playing on the estuary below is a constant distraction. Local groceries in Pueblo Nuevo, Bejuco, Corrozalito, San Francisco de Coyote mean fresh produce and provisions for any level of culinary activity desired. Very convenient to stop and grab a cool drink and any items you need on the way home from the beaches. Produce delivery can be arranged a couple days a week through our caretaker. Don't feel like making lunch or dinner? Dining choices range from rustic bocas (mouthfulls - like tapas) and bar fare to fried whole pargo (red snapper caught locally) drizzled with fresh mandarina juice in Pueblo Nuevo (La Conga and Los Corrales) to very comfortable view dining at Casa Caletas in near Playa Coyote and 4 star international dining at Punta Islita resort ... all within 30 minutes via country road from the property.

                      Owner info

                      About the owner: While Southern California has great climate, we wanted to find a place where the surf was warm year round ... and a bit less crowded.

                      Why the Owner Chose Playa San Miguel:
                      After many years of trips to surf with Tico friends, we decided to explore properties in the areas we enjoyed the most ... away from crowded line ups and tourism crowds. This area's gentle ranching culture, fabulous beaches, predictable surf and beautiful weather lured us. The view and steady breezes of this ridgetop property sealed the deal.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                      Many feel they want to stay 'on the beach' when seeking tropical relaxation. We've found that the local beaches are best enjoyed mornings and evenings with our unique ridge top siesta nest. A refreshing beverage, a dip in the pool, rich mid day breezes and clothing optional privacy can make that evening walk on the beach before dinner even more enjoyable!!!
