Manuel Antonio has several beautiful beaches a short drive from Casa Azul. The new Marina in Quepos offers world class sport fishing for Marlin, Sailfish, Maui-Maui and more. If you like fishing, a trip is a must. The water is calm for the most part and gets very deep within a few miles of shore. There is very little boat traffic. On our first trip out we caught two of the largest sailfish I have ever seen as well as numerous Maui- Maui, also the largest I have seen. These were caught within sight of shore. We also saw a Humpback Whale with her Pup.
The new Marina with reasonable, safe charters is within two miles of Casa Azul. It can be viewed from the house. Arrange a charter with your concierge. If you prefer, the management team will arrange for a chef to prepare a full course meal with your fresh fish for a reasonable fee, or you can take your fish to any one of the local restaurants and they will be glad to prepare it for you.
Wildlife tours in Manuel Antonio park are amazing as is the beach. The park entrance is 3 miles from Casa Azul. We recommend hiring a guide with a spotting scope. You can see the various species of Monkeys, Sloths and Iguanas really well for a very reasonable fee. If you have an Iphone, the guide will take amazing pictures using his scope. Within a mile or so inside the Park, you will come upon several beautiful secluded beaches.
The beaches near the park entrance have Jet skis, parasailing, horseback riding, and ATV tours. We have done white water rafting and zip lining. Both are a blast, great fun for all ages. The local tour companies will pick you up at the house and return you.
Although I am not a surfer, I hear from those who are that some of the best surfing is within a short drive of Casa Azul. Hermosa is to the North and Dominical to the south. For the more adventuresome, there are all sorts of tours available for ATV riding thru the mountains.
Diving and snorkeling trips are available at the new Pez Marina which is two miles away and can be viewed from the house.
Of course, there are all sorts of Eco tours which show and explain the diverse and beautiful Costa Rica Flora and Fauna.
Casa Azul sits on a hill overlooking the town of Quepos and the ocean to the west. To the east are the rainforest mountains. The view is Panoramic during the day. At night, the lights of the town can be enjoyed from the house, balcony, and the infinity pool.
Quepos is an exuberant little town with lots of shopping and friendly local Ticos.
There are several grocery stores nearby. There is also a large Pali market [Walmart chain] about two miles away.
Taxis are very reasonable and readily available in the area. If you rent a vehicle, there are parks, mountains, beaches and tours within a short drive. If you drive to Quepos from San Jose Airport, the new roads are quite good. It is a scenic drive along the ocean and thru the miles and miles of palm plantations along highway 34. There are modern gas stations and stopping points along the way.
For a more laid back vacation, spend plenty of time at the house enjoying the amenities, including the infinity pool and the new, full length balcony on the rear of the house. Cook your fish on the new grill and enjoy the sunsets.
There are many excellent and reasonable restaurants to choose from within a few miles of Casa Azul. Most are on the Manuel Antonio road which is less than a mile from Casa Azul.
I can honestly say we have never had a bad meal at any of the popular restaurants alone the Manuel Antonio Road. There are many good ones to choose from. Most restaurants along the Manuel Antonio Road are open air with views of the Pacific ocean and lovely ocean breezes. The service is generally good and the prices are reasonable.
Costa Rica has good medical care. There is a hospital two miles from Casa Azul. There are local pharmacies in Quepos always ready to help with any need you may have.
Quepos has a Farmer's Market every Friday evening and all day Saturdays. You can get all sorts of fresh food and condiments at a very reasonable price.
Quepos has its own airport which is three miles from Casa Azul. There are many flights daily from San Jose to Quepos by Sansa and Nature Air. The flight takes twenty minutes and is an experience in itself. There are several car rental agencies in Quepos. We currently use Adobe. Rentals rates are reasonable.
Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: We sold our vacation place in Florida in 2013 and decided to find a new vacation place in Central America. After looking around, we decided on Costa Rica. After more looking around in Costa Rica, we decided on the Manuel Antonio area. We fell in love with Casa Azul and we believe you will too.
Why the Owner Chose Manuel Antonio:
First, the natural beauty and diversity of the area. Second, The people, handsome, noble, hard working and friendly. Third, the charm and comfort of Casa Azul. Fourth, the close availability to all sorts of activities. Last, but not least the management team. Steve Kelly will be your concierge during your stay. Jaha and Kimberly, our domestic engineers, will make sure the Casa is tidy when you return from your trips or excursions.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have never seen a view like that seen from the house. It can be enjoyed day and night. The ocean, town, and mountains offer a panoramic view. The house has both charm and comfort, a rare find. The design and layout of the house is good for larger groups. We stayed with our children and grandchildren for ten days. The house never felt crowded with nine people and we still were able to enjoy our privacy. The Casa is surrounded by a lockable fence. There is an alarm system for security. The house and property were extensively remodeled in 2014. Most of the furnishings and all of the appliances are new. Casa Azul is out of town yet close to everything. Many of the local tours know our location by the name 'Casa Azul'.
