Casa Olas Azul is a magnificent vacation villa located within one of the most desirable private hillside communities in southern Pacific Costa Rica.

Nestled in a lush, vibrant cloud forest more than 1,400 feet above sea level and teeming with wildlife, Casa Olas Azul features state-of-the-art amenities, world-class ocean views, towering vaulted ceilings and plenty of privacy. Construction on the villa, which features two bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms, was completed in August 2015 and the results are stunning.

Throughout multiple parts of the property – including the kitchen, bedrooms, infinity pool and backyard barbeque area – there are incredible sightlines of the famous Whale’s Tail at Marino Ballena National Park, a rocky reef that stretches more than a mile out to sea and is completely exposed during low tides. As the ocean water fills in on high tides, the reef shelf disappears for a few hours, only to appear again as the tide rushes back out to sea. It truly is a sight to behold as nature works its course each Costa Rican day.

The kitchen area at Casa Olas Azul is completely modern, with a granite-top island for making meals and stainless steel appliances including a refrigerator, stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, blender, icemaker and all the cutlery you’ll need to prepare perfect feasts each day of your stay. Next to the kitchen is a living area with two sofas, a flat-screen television and DVD player. The villa also comes equipped with 4G Internet service, a secured safe for your valuables as well as a washer and dryer unit.

There are air-conditioning units in both of the bedrooms. The master bedroom features a luxurious king bed and the aforementioned extraordinary ocean views, while the second bedroom contains a pair of twin beds that can be combined to form a comfortable king size bed. There is also a blowup mattress in the villa for additional sleeping space. Overall, it’s an ideal setup for families with children or a pair of couples.

Although subtle, there are some interesting aspects to the main bathroom as well. The sink resembles a small boulder with its insides carved out, and the shower floor is laced with tiny rocks. There is also a secure, frosted shower door that leads from the bathroom to the backyard. A second restroom, sans shower, is also inside the villa.

Plan to spend plenty of time outdoors at Casa Olas Azul. The infinity pool is breathtaking, and the weather is absolutely perfect to hang around on the poolside lounge chairs or grill some fresh fish on the barbeque. In addition, a landscaped tropical garden highlights the backyard foliage.

This luxurious vacation villa is located in the Costa Verde property development, about 20 minutes off the coastal highway and almost directly centered between the towns of Dominical and Uvita, where you can find restaurants, grocery stores and pharmacies. The road to the development features both dirt and concrete, and a 4x4 vehicle is required. There is a security gate to enter the grounds with a full-time guard on duty. This area is extremely safe and incredibly beautiful. Because it’s located high in the cloud forest, the temperature at Casa Olas Azul is often 10 degrees cooler than down at the beach.

As guests in the Costa Verde Estate development, your group will have access to the best outdoor tennis court in the southern zone, a workout room adjacent to the tennis court, a large outdoor picnic area and a helicopter pad in case of serious medical emergencies. Tennis rackets and balls are provided by the house, so there’s little need to pack your playing gear for the trip.

All in all, Casa Olas Azul is a prime vacation destination, perhaps the best in all of Costa Rica. From outdoor adventure to indoor luxury, this is the spot to be for viewing remarkable wildlife – monkeys, toucans and sloths are common visitors – or simply kicking your feet up poolside and reading a good book. So take the plunge and reserve your once-in-a-lifetime vacation at Casa Olas Azul today!

Overall property was excellent!!

  • 5 of 5

Property was perfect for family of four (kids spring break trip). The view of the Pacific Ocean, birds, etc. is amazing....every morning I cherished having a cup of coffee watching the sun rise over the mountains and seeing all the wildlife...my family loved it and felt very secure. The property management team does an excellent job of coordinating the trip and house had everything we needed...I highly recommend to couples/families wanting to get away from the commercial vacations (i.e. hotels/resorts)...this place is special.

Perfect! Amazing Views! Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely perfect is all I can say about Casa Olas Azul. My husband and I are in love with this place, in fact we wish we could be there right now. Everything we needed was there and we felt like it was our home away from home. The infinity pool, the view, the sunsets, the sounds are what we loved the most. The drive up is a 4 mile drive and at times tedious, so we planned our day to go down the mountain in the morning and then we did all our activities like beaches, shopping, and eating our main meal. We would go back up the mountain around 2:30pm and then stayed at the house the rest of the night. The electric was intermittent a few of the days but the internet was great and Josue was super helpful. Thank you everyone for an excellent experience.

A slice of heaven overlooking paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our week-long stay at Casa Olas Azul was spectacular. We were greeted morning, noon and night with breathtaking ocean views and trees filled with wildlife. Toucans were plentiful and the home extremely private. Previous guest reviews have been accurate about neighboring homes...from the rear the home above is quite present, but when at the pool facing the ocean, there are no homes in sight. The home was very well appointed - with such glorious outdoors, you won't need access to much inside other than a bed and a shower - you'll spend all your time outdoors in the pool or gazing at the skyline. The owners furnished the home with solid and quality furnishings – nothing feels ‘on the cheap.’ The washer and dryer came in very handy, along with the dishwasher. You'll want to check with the rental team to make sure they've stocked dishwashing soap - we had to buy at the local market, priced at a premium. If you plan to spend your days at the pool, be prepared for the sound of the Cicada - this is a very large and noisy bug found in the canopy. Given the homes' relation to the surrounding trees the Cicada are alive and well from sunrise to sunset. The chirping can be white noise, or maddening based on your perspective, just be prepared for this harmless but extremely clumsy bug. The YouGetHere team were magnificent - Gina was a joy and shared in our excitement of all-things Costa Rica and was incredibly responsive. Booking and reserving was an ease. We spent the day in Manuel Antonio, an immersive canopy tour / zipline / rappelling course (Osa Canopy Tours), visits to the Jolly Roger and the Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary. This is a must-see for animal and wildlife friends. We hired Green Reef Costa Rica Clinical Massage – Seth was a highlight of our visit - he was incredibly professional, informative and pleasant. The reviews of the drive up to Costa Verde are incredibly accurate. Initially “I can get up and down the hill way faster than previous guests.” I was wrong…plan to spend 20-25 minutes in the 4x4 each way – we may have gotten down the hill once in about 12 minutes, but that seemed an anomaly otherwise. Surrounding towns Dominical and Uvita are charming and have the amenities you need. Playa Ballena was breathtaking – at low tide the beach stretched for miles. The Costa Ballena region is worth exploring before the world discovers it! We look forward to returning to the region and Escaleras. Thanks again to our friends at YouGetHere for making it a reality!

Wonderful !!!

  • 4 of 5

From the time we arrived and met Gina to the time we departed we had an amazing time. The location and house were very impressive and the communication was excellent. This house has everything you will need to feel at home. Greeted by Toucans every morning and evening was a real treat. We saw lots of wildlife and the view was spectacular. We would of gave this rental a 5 star rating if it wasn’t for the problems with the safe and the DVD player is still not working properly. The drive up the mountain was getting a little long because we made multiple trips down per day. My wife runs so we did the trip every morning then another when we went exploring the country side. Anywhere from 17-25 minutes each way. If it wasn’t for the multiple trips up and down the mountain, “This is the place I would want to be . It’s very Private “ Wifi is important to some people especially if you need to stay in touch with back home. It worked GREAT! The security guards were excellent and the Estate grounds are very well looked after. Thanks again. Derek and Jen.

Absolutely the BEST Place!

  • 5 of 5

This home was our most favorite vacation spot ever! From sunrise to sunset you would never have to leave! A birdwatchers heaven on earth and a great spot to relax, swim, read & write! If you like to cook, grill or mix cocktails, this kitchen accommodates! Go simple or go big, but you won’t starve here! This place is perfect for 2 couples or a family of 4. You do need a car to get around. You definitely want to explore the area; great beaches, colorful towns, shopping, water sports, and be sure and catch some music or sports on the big screen at the Bar Jolly Roger! It’s on your way up the hill and they have great bar food and burgers, and you can even birdwatch from there too! My only recommendation is to grocery shop before you get here, because you won’t wanna leave! We’ll be back! 💕

Awesome time in Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

We spent 7 days here over New Years with another couple and absolutely loved it. The house is perfectly efficient for 2 couples. Be prepared for the 25 minute drive up the hill. Other reviews made it sound like it was going to be really rough but its really not bad, it just takes time because of steep hills and sharp curves. Also, I never saw any mention that from the pool you have a perfect view of the famous WhalesTail. Be sure to stop by Jolly Rogers Bar up on the mountain for friendly service and good beer. If you are looking to party and get wild this is probably not your spot, but you can certainly have a good time and get some R&R. Pleasant travels!
