We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The home had a great central location and a spectacular view. We saw more wild life from the balconies than we did at the national park. The property owner was very helpful and accommodating. Thanks, Jean!

Views, monkeys, close to town, and helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of six who stayed at this villa in late March 2016, and we really enjoyed our time there. We had two older couples and then our son in his 20s who came with a friend. We chose this location because you don't need a car and can walk to the town and to the local shuttle bus stop in about 5 minutes -- though the return trip is up a hill for a short time. The home is large with sweeping views of the jungle and the ocean in the background, and there is a nice pool often visited by monkeys. Our son and his friend said they saw more monkeys at the pool than at Manuel Antonio park.

My husband and I enjoyed the top bedroom, though people need to know that it is more of a loft so it doesn't have total privacy. However, we loved the view from up there out all of the windows. The attached bathroom has windows at the tree level, and these trees attract some beautiful colorful birds, so I did much of my bird watching from the bathroom! The bedrooms are also air conditioned.

The bedrooms on the other level are not as large, and the shared bathroom is smaller, so people should be aware of that along with the fact those upstairs need to walk through one of the bedrooms to get to the lower level (unless Jean has another way around this). We're all close, so that didn't bother us.

Jean was the ultimate host and was responsive and great to work with. We even invited him to join us for a drink one evening, as he is very interesting and well-traveled. He also let us store our bags there after we had checked out so we didn't have to take them with us to the beach that afternoon. We would recommend Villa Azul.

Mixed Experience

  • 2 of 5

I wish I could give this 5 stars but feel that future renters deserve to know what they are signing on for. We ended up leaving 2 days early and having to find another place to stay. The house is beautiful and the pictures do not lie. The view is extraordinary and the pool was well maintained and pretty.

The place felt a little neglected up close....books and outdated magazines covered in dust, drooping plants that needed watering, leaking gas smell coming from the grill. These were not deal breakers. We were, however, unable to get a good night sleep due to 2 things: air-conditioning did not work properly and at 10:00 each night a band would start up and we were treated to a pulsing bass beat that went till 3 am. Sleep was near impossible and by the 3rd night we had had it. Jean suggested we move downstairs to a lower room. The bed was unmade and it had an old rusty looking window unit for cooling. As my husband put it, "It would be like sleeping in a cheap hotel room." one cannot do laundry there either. We discovered an old washer and dryer in the garage area that were not hooked up. When I asked Jean about this he said that as we had signed up for only 5 nights, we were not entitled to the laundry service so pack plenty of extra clothes and don't end up hand washing stuff in the sink like I did.

Owner's Response: To be fair we have had many happy guests stay at Villa Azul and I did offer to make up the bed downstairs for you as there was only a temporary cover on that bed as you where only 2 people for this rental ! I did speak to the neighbors regarding the noise those nights and they did tell me that the guests they had would be quiet it happens anywhere !. We have washers and dryer service included in your stay for more than 5 days, the washer and dryer units you saw are in the garage and unconnected and have nothing to do with the rental they are for backup , we have a separate laundry downstairs and full maid service on day 3. Yes its high season and some areas are a bit dry look around the neighborhood. I am dissapointed you did not enjoy the experience at Villa Azul but I cannot always please everybody and have had many happy guests as you can see from my reviews.

A beautiful villa and hospitable owner

  • 5 of 5

We loved the beautiful villa, especially the ocean and sunset view and the shaded pool. Many thanks to Jean for his hospitality and great help with booking and later cancelling part of the tours (as two people in our party couldn't join the trip due to some visa issue)! We'll come back for sure in the future.

Beautiful views and monkeys at your back door

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the property. My son(5) loved the monkeys in the morning, it was the highlight of his trip. The monkeys came twice during our stay. It was also entertaining for my wife and I. We enjoyed the pool also, it was nice to take a swim after a long day. The property is very nice with a great location. while we were there we went to Manuel Antonio Park and saw lots of different animals. My son also enjoyed the restaurant that was built with an airplane. Jeff was a great help with answering our questions. I would recommend this property and would stay there again.

A perfect spot to stay in Manuel Antonio

  • 5 of 5

We rented the top two units at Villa Azul and it was exactly what we wanted, and better than we expected. The units are very spacious and perfect for two couples or six people. The covered decks are wonderful places to sit and take in the views and the jacuzzi is perfect for watching the sunset. We also made good use of the new pool. The location is convenient to everything.

Jean is the perfect host. He can book all of your tours, and will give great recommendations on where to eat.

I can't imagine finding a better spot to stay.

Excellent home, fabulous location, terrific owner

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at Villa Azul. Located at the top of Manuel Antonio, the views and sunsets were spectacular ! And the daily morning visits from the monkeys was very entertaining. Everything in this home was a advertised. Jean also booked several tours for us which were terrific. We are looking forward to staying again.
