  • 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."

  • Just perfect!!

    "I put together a wellness retreat for 12 of us. This estate was just perfect for us!!...We started our morning with a run on the beach, then yoga right on the yoga platform, followed by a delicious protein shake that we made in the large, clean kitchen. We relaxed throughout the day with massages on the yoga platform, or shopping in the village, or exploring the land (ATV tour, cliffs, etc.). The evening was spent with a pilates workout, a sunset drink on the beach, and family style dinner around the large beautiful table. Anna and her staff were great and we all had the trip of a lifetime. We will be back!"

  • C.W.

    "My husband and I had a wonderful time at Casa MiraMar. The view was amazing. The house was clean. We loved how close the house was to all of the sites and activities we wanted to do. Jane and Ryan (the owners) were very helpful in answering all of our questions before the trip and had great suggestions on places we should experience and see. There is a guest book at the house with others recommendations that we also found extremely helpful. We were able to go on this trip with little planned and had an amazing time. We highly recommend staying here and hope to return again soon!"

  • We found our "Cheeseburger in Paradise"

    "We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Carolina. The house was a perfect fit for our family of eight with three little ones. It was immaculately maintained and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Elisabeth, the house keeper, was wonderful! She made the best scrambled eggs I have ever had and is a professional origamist. She made the most creative paper designs on the end of every toilet paper roll in the house every day. Saul and Willie did a great job of coordinating our adventures and giving us great tips on beaches and restaurants. This was better than a 5 star luxury hotel or resort, as you had all the services and amenities of a resort but you had the privacy of having it all to yourself. We always felt very safe with 24 hour security and the gated driveway. The best part for me was the BBQ area, I was able to make the best cheeseburgers on the outside grill in the outside kitchen and we enjoyed them as we watched the sun sink into the Pacific from the infinity pool. It became known as "Cheeseburger in Paradise" time. Casa Carolina should be on everyone's bucket list."
