Property description

Between 1995 - 1997, during my travels to Costa Rica, I came upon a parcel of land in the early stages of development. I had searched from the tip of the Nicoya Penninsula to Playa de Coco for the ideal location to build my dream home and possible a few units for friends that would occasionally want to come down. When I happened on Villa Mar Azul I knew I had found my location. Situated in the foothills just above the sleepy little town of Haucas Villa Mar Azul is for the person that wants to experience the true Costa Rica. Although we have Wifi, cable TV, Air conditioning through out we would not be considered a 5 star resort. If you prefer to be waited on hand and foot Villa Mar Azul is not for you. Primarily for the reason that we are trying to attract the traveler that would prefer to steer clear of all the trappings a mega resort affords. See, you just can't get the real local feel in the resort setting. And I truly believe you will go home much more relaxed when you live the Pura VIda pace in a boutique resort setting such as Villa Mar Azul. But don't take my word for it peruse the photos, watch the video and make the decision for your self. You will not be disapointed your first or your tenth stay, I assure you.


Keywords: A secluded villa in a jungle setting with monkeys, iguanas & many species of birds. Relax where time stands still. Go zip lining, water rafting, Volcano treking or just lay underneath the waterfall cascading into the pool. The choice is yours with many attractions nearby including white sand beaches. Or you might just find the seclusion, and a massage, at our jungle location pleasing to the body and soul.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: I have always loved to travel to foriegn destinations. It wasn't until I started going to Central America that I really found my calling. Being a So Calif native and surfing all my life it was the perfect destination to plant some roots. Villa Mar Azul is tucked away on the hillside overlooking the town of Haucas and the La Garita Valley. You are surrounded by wildlife with the Howler Monkeys waking you in the morning. Our security system consists of 2 dogs and a caretaker. Outside of that you will be at one with the natural setting of the jungle. Please come join me and experience the true Costa Rica.

Why the Owner Chose Huacas:
Villa Mar Azul is not on the beach but tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist enclaves nearby. I wanted to design a retreat for small groups to be at one with nature. The tourist town of Tamarindo is 10 mins to the south and the towns of Brasilito & Playa Flamingo are just 10 mins to the north all offering restaurants and shopping. Playa Grande, with its white sandy beaches and beautiful surf is 15 mins to the west. You will find Haucas to be a very pleasant town made up of restaurants, markets, a pharmacy and curios shops for those hard to find locally handcrafted items.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The seclusion adds to the laid back feel of living off the grid. I find myself completely relaxed during my stays and the afternoon siesta becomes a daily ritual to look forward to. In the evening a light dinner at Punta Tranquillo, the resturant at the bottom of the hill, is not to be missed. Make sure and try the ceviche. All in all if you are coming to Costa Rica for the nightlife I can recommend many other locations that will suit your needs. But if you like the natural setting, uncrowded beaches and the ocasional massage on our 180 degree view veranda you have found your Shangra La.
