  • The view!!!!!

    "First of all the view.... The home is amazing but the view makes it something else. Almost every night we had iguanas in/around the house, monkeys howling or swinging from the trees. Peter was so accommodating with what restaurants to go to, which trails to take and any other information to make it a perfect trip. The only complaint from our group was they didn't have means to contact Peter to thank him. Pura vida from Lauren, Patrick Risch, Jason and Lily! I definitely plan on booking this home in the future!"

  • Views, monkeys, close to town, and helpful owner

    "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."

  • Definitely 5 Stars! Fabulous House ! Great Vacation!

    "Driving from the San Jose Airport to Los Suenos was well worth the drive! The view from the Carvajal home takes your breath away daily. The house exceeded all of our expectations. The house is very clean and well kept. We felt very safe during our entire stay. It is a gated community and therefore you have to be granted access to get into the community. Maureen the maid is awesome! We just loved her. She was very attentive and she is a great cook. The first day when we arrived she pulled out a schedule for the meal plans. She cooks breakfast and lunch. She made us some very delicious Costa Rican dishes. Even my picky eater would eat all of his food. Some of the food Examples included: Gallo Pinto, Arroz con Pollo, and Cazado. She even gave us a mini cooking lesson because we wanted to know some of her cooking secrets. She is soooooooo sweet. We just loved loved loved Maureen. Donald the grounds keeper is also around to help out. He sets up the outdoor furniture cushions and cleans the outside daily. He is also there to turn the spa on and off for you and with any troubles that may arise. 10 total people stayed comfortably. We also visited the community pool and beach area and everything was nice and clean. There was a grounds person also cleaning the private beach area. Los Suenos isn't too far from Jaco and there is a Market that is not too far as well. We booked excursions to ride ATV's (Jaguars were great), we did the Canopy Ziplining Tour and we loved it, and my kids rafted on the Naranjo River. All excursion companies that we used picked us up from the house. We did go out and explore a lot and we always came back to relax and jump into the pool and look at the view. If we were out exploring during lunch Maureen would leave the prepared meals. We got visitors almost daily coming from the trees that are directly behind the house. Monkeys would come by and we would watch them from the infinity pool. We would leave bananas out so that they could get a little closer. We saw several large iguanas and of course cute little geckos. Great family vacation! One of our best family vacations! Hope you love this home as much as our family did!"

  • Secluded, peaceful, and magical stay!

    "We stayed at Casa Cielo for 2 nights--it was not enough time! Perched on a hillside with a magnificent view toward the gulf, this cabin feels like it's in it's own world. It's a unique location and a really special place--do yourself a favor and book a stay here! On our way up, we stopped by the Sustainability Demonstration Center to meet Veronica, and would strongly encourage everyone to do the same--she's so wonderful and they're doing great work there! We also got to visit the farmers market across the street which was lovely. When we arrived at Casa Cielo, Giselle met us, showed us around, and provided delicious, farm-fresh, homemade refreshments! The cabin has everything you need, and is comfy and cozy. We had some dog and cat visitors, strays or neighbors but all very friendly, so that's a bonus if you love animals! The location is very convenient if you want to visit the cloud forest, and Veronica's recommendation/help with reservations at Selvatura Park was very valuable. Can't say enough good things about this special place, and can't wait to go back! Very highly recommended!"
