Overview

About the property

6 bedrooms, 6 full baths, 2 half baths, sleeps 12

Villa Vista Azul is a wonderful vacation Villa for a group ranging from 6-12 people. The Villa is located in the upscale community of Playa Hermosa a mere 25 minutes from the Liberia International Airport (LIR). The panoramic views of the Gulf of Papagayo are simply sensational and watching the sun set into the ocean is a constant evening treat.

Vista Azul is comprised of a “main house” (with 4 bedrooms) and a smaller “casita” (with 2 bedrooms) totaling approximately 6200 square feet. The Villa offers six full sized suites, each with individual bathroom facilities, TVs, air conditioning and ceiling fans. Both the main house and the casita have their own kitchens, living rooms and laundry facilities.

The Villa is graced with a large infinity pool; outdoor bar; ample poolside lounging; interior TV, game, and communications areas; a dining area; and an interior exercise room. The main house has 2 complete kitchens, dishwashers and refrigerators, while the pool area has its’ own outside bar, sink and ‘frig. Additional amenities include cable TV and wireless internet, along with Bluetooth iPod speakers.

One unique aspect of the Villa are the sliding glass doors leading from the living area to the outdoor patio & pool: these fold back completely to provide a feeling of unrivaled spaciousness and interconnection with the outdoors areas, while allowing the natural breezes to flow into and through the home.

The Villa is wonderfully decorated and lushly landscaped, while pool care and housekeeping are automatically included to keep the Villa constantly cleaned and refreshed.

Adventures and Activities: Villa Vista Azul is perfectly situated for guests to enjoy swimming, scuba diving, snorkeling, fishing, and sailing in the pristine waters of the Gulf of Papagayo. Centrally located in the Guanacaste region, guests can also easily venture out each day in different directions to experience the various pleasures of jungle canopy tours, mud baths, horseback riding, pristine surfing beaches, zip lining, ATV adventuring and nearby local villages. The village of Playa del Coco, for example, is just ten minutes away and it boasts a variety of restaurants, local shops, discos, and even a casino.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family of nine, two grandparents, two children with spouses and three teenage grandchildren spent a week over New Years in Villa Vista azul to "bring in 2014".

We have travel extensively in the Caribbean and always enjoy the pleasures of a well managed private villa regardless of location. This was our first venture to Costa Rica. A lovely, friendly country containing enough modern comforts without loss of local color. It is also quite easy to reach from anywhere in the us via Liberia airport.

From our greeting upon arrival and throughout the stay, the services of the Villa staff and management were first class. The villa itself is magnificent and the location and view are spectacular. All the common rooms were most adequate for our size party, and the outdoor facilities superb. All bedrooms were large and comfortable.

Having the "full service package" is a real plus. Our staff was highly qualified and tended to our needs well. Special requests were "no problem".

The full time driver allowed us to venture forth and explore the beauty of the area. From zip lining for the "younger" folks to local shopping to nice days out at local restaurants, we were just busy enough to allow enough time to just "relax" at the villa.

Our only suggestion is to be a bit specific on "menu" likes and dislikes prior to or upon arrival. The Chef, once we went over this after arrival, was more than able to accommodate our wishes, but we should have done this in advance. Also, ask about getting departure documents before the day of departure as LIR can get quite busy especially on weekends.

You will truly enjoy your stay at this 5 star villa. We plan to return.

Costa Rica is a perfect vacation spot if you’re looking for a warm, sunny climate; exotic wildlife; beautiful tropical vegetation; majestic volcanoes; mystical rain forests; picturesque trails; pristine beaches; great surfing, snorkeling, scuba diving, sailing, and swimming; world class sport fishing; mud-bathing; horseback riding; nature tours; rafting; golfing; spas; and relaxation with nature! All this in a country that welcomes its visitors with welcome arms and open hearts! Villa Vista Azul is located in the northwest corner of Costa Rica called Guanacaste ---a great place to vacation! A unique aspect of the Guanacaste region is that it is often referred to as the Gold Coast because in the dry season the typical green lush vegetation turns to sun drenched golden colors.The 'green' and 'gold' seasons are equally beautiful, beckoning you to visit us twice!

Gorgeous home with unbelievable views!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful family vacation. The home is just minutes from a beautiful beach and a short drive away from more populated areas, but if you're anything like me, you'll want to spend a good amount of your time relaxing in or by the infinity pool taking in the amazing scenery.

The house is spacious, with a very group-friendly layout. The design makes mealtime (both cooking and eating) a pleasure (the kitchen is fantastic). The property is immaculate; it's clear that both the owner and the staff take great pride in offering a spectacular place to spend your vacation.

Serenity Now!

  • 5 of 5

This villa is so appealing in its design, tasteful decoration, amenities and lovely views from sunrise to sunset that I could be perfectly happy for any number of days just hanging out and not going anywhere other than bedroom, pool, kitchen shower all day long!

The infinity pool imparts a level of serenity that is very calming and wonderful. The expansive bay & ocean views of course add to the enchantment.

In other words - nice place. I liked it. Nearby beaches and restaurants fill out ones needs.

Everything is clean and dutifully maintained.

Reviewer Comments:

We rented the Villa Azul for 1 week in February 2017. We received a very warm welcome from Tracy and were explained in detail how everything functions. The Villa Azul is a perfect house what concerns the position, the view, the rooms, the pool and the equipment. However it is not ideal for children below the age of 4. Also the service (cleaning, changing tools, tidening of the rooms etc.) was not acceptable (at least not for this price). The road up to the house is very steep and makes walking to the beach (20min.) a challenge for most people. Shopping is very near (by car) and good but at the same time expensive. The Hermosa Beach is ideal for elderly people but I assume junger folk would prefer the nearby Playa Coco.

Our experience at the Villa Vista Azul could not have been better. The property is sleek and spacious with a view that takes your breath away. Ideal for a party of 10, allowing everyone to have some private space. The property is lovingly maintained by a helpful caretaking couple devoted to ensuring that guests have a good and memorable stay.

Amazing home with Spectacular Views

  • 5 of 5

Recently rented this home with 5 others to celebrate a 50th birthday and we had the most amazing time. The home is absolutely gorgeous. It is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. The house is decorated professionally and is in immaculate condition. It was hard for us to stick to our itinerary, because no one wanted to leave the house because it was so relaxing and the sunsets were the most incredible views that I have ever witnessed. The outdoor pool is breathtaking and the furniture and hammocks are perfect for an afternoon nap or to lounge in the sun. We took a day trip to Buena Vista and rode multiple times down the natural water slide and then went to the sauna, mud baths and hot springs. It was a perfect day. We also went to The Congo Trail canopy tour and zip-lined with monkeys in the trees all around us. We took a river tour and saw lots of crocodiles and monkeys. After the boat tour we had a delicious Costa Rican lunch and then drove back to the house for the beautiful sunset that evening. The week that we spent in Costa Rica was incredible and yet very relaxing. The house itself was located in a safe and convenient location. This is a 5 star rental.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

After my first night staying here I got in the habit of waking up singing "it's another day in Paradise" because that is what every day was. Villa Vista Azul is an amazing place where you will find serenity and peace. The view from the house is breathtaking and I actually found myself becoming addicted to it as the week wore on. This is one of the very few places I have ever stayed where the pictures online do not do justice and your expectations are exceeded the moment you step on the property. The owner has literally thought of everything one could possibly need on vacation including the things you would never think of yourself. My daughter and I stayed in the casita which we loved. We had our own space and views but were just steps away from the main house.

The house, pool area and grounds are impeccably kept. Each day we ventured out for outings such as zip lining, boating and the beach (all very nearby) but we were always eager to return to our favorite time of day. Nothing beat lounging by the pool while enjoying the view and each others company. We joked about how the owners must have put careful thought into each and every chair before they bought it because all the options for sitting and lounging were so comfortable. We never missed a sunset from the deck including the last night when we had a yummy local pizza delivered so we could eke out every last moment before returning home.

I give this gem my highest recommendation!
