Orosi estate description

Villa Alas Azules is nestled about an hour east from the capital of San Jose, in a gorgeous, picture-perfect hidden valley, one hour drive north to the Caribbean ocean, and an hour’s drive south to the Pacific. The estate rests at an elevation of about 4000 feet where temperatures couldn't be more lovely year round!

Virtually all of Costa Rica’s rich treasures are within easy reach and under about 20 miles, from zip lining, canopy tours, rafting, rainforest tours, natural hot springs, waterfalls, to bird watching, hiking trails and star gazing. Even some of the country’s most important archeological sites like Guayabo, or the Ujarras ruins, and the still surviving colonial architecture in 10 minutes away Orosi.

This spectacular home is uniquely outfitted on 9 acres with a basketball court, koi pond, Jacuzzi, edible vegetation (lemons, limes, grapefruits, bananas, coffee, eggplants, green beans, cilantro, peppers, tomatoes, etc), views of beautiful waterfall from the long front porch during the green/rainy season, fully stocked kitchen for cooking and serving, a covered gazebo outdoor kitchen with grill overlooking the valley, lots of walking and hiking trails, hammocks, badminton, croquet, Foosball, etc. There is TV with cable and DVD player, and hook up for iPod stereo music.

There’s loads of space for large family groups, or lots of privacy for those who prefer that. SMall stores are less than a mile, larger grocery stores are located about 15 minutes away in Paraiso, while mega style stores like Walmart are located about 30 minutes away in Cartago, which you pass on the way from the airport to the property.

Local Costa Rican art is on display throughout the home and within the gardens. Note the hand carved columns at the gazebo, the benches, the stone carvings, etc. The home is handsomely and solidly built with hardwoods, glass brick, tile, concrete and stucco. The blue exterior paint on the lower portion of the house is one of the famous traditional ways of building a Costa Rican homes.

The home acquired its name for 3 reasons: the lower blue on its exterior walls, the two blue feathered peacocks living on the property (Fred and Mathilda), and the spectacular Blue Morpho butterflies fluttering into view on any given day.

An onsite groundskeeper will tend to the gardens, while a cook and housekeeper can be affordably hired each day to make your meals and clean house (about $25 per day). Also available if you hire one of our approved guides to drive is a 15 passenger van with large luggage rack on top for $375 per week. We can arrange airport pickup by local staff (email to inquire for prices) and to conduct tours.

Ask us questions, we love to help! We have so many more photos and videos to share.

We have had some problems in the past with 2 people renting the property thinking they could have dozens or hundreds of people to spend the day on the property, and we do not allow this. Each guest or visitor will be charged at the nightly rate, regardless of whether they spend the night.
