Great place to stay

Cottage is clean and efficient. Nice kitchen and has all the basic amenities including a great valley view and pool. Very reasonable for what you get. I liked that it was tight and NOT easy for bugs and other critters to wander in under doors and windows that dont seal. ENJOYED MY STAY AND WILL COME BACK.

Good value base to explore the area.

Nice view of mostly jungle with ocean in background. Good clean place to stay for a fair price. Plus side is the view is good, it is very quit, clean & comfortable. Negatives recommend 4 x 4 in dry season, need it in wet season. With that said I still consider it a good value for what we paid.

Perfect spot

Quiet. Calm. Private. Peaceful. Bird calls. A hilltop retreat. But close to Domenical and the Neuyaca Waterfall. The units are modern and spotless, with all the necessities. The pool is idyllic. We loved being here and hope to come again.

Casacada Azul long term

Everyone was great. Unit was exactly as represented. No surprises.. Except did not think I would use the pool that much... Was I wrong! Lived there... Was nice social gathering point for sunsets. Will be back if in that area again

A quite and beautiful place to watch birds in the morning and to see the sunset in the evening.

Our family of four spent a lovely Christmas vacation at this villa. Highly recommended for birdwatching at sunrise and at sunset. Need 4x4.

Great, convenient place to stay on the Central Coast!

My husband and I had a great stay at Cascada Azul! If you happen to coming to Costa Rica to look at retirement options, I can highly recommend staying here. It is very convenient just up the hill from Dominical Beach which gives you access not only to Central zone beach communities but also the Southern zone and Perez Zeledon as well! Not too far off the beaten path, but far enough that you feel you are definitely in the jungle. The manager Keiston is fantastic. He was very helpful, speaks perfect English and will do whatever you need to be comfortable. His helper, Johnny is fantastic as well. They keep the area and pool spotless so all you have to do is sit back and enjoy the view. You will probably see one or two Pizotes coming by to say hello. Cutest things. Toucans, condors and hawks cruise around at eye level and butterflies and hummingbirds are always in view. Parking (4x4 definitely needed) is right at your door and you will feel very very safe. If you are there on a Thursday, I highly recommend visiting the HUGE farmers market up in Perez Zeledon. The colors are overwhelming. Keiston can give you directions and it is not hard to find and has a huge parking lot. Have fun!

Perfect location for exploring the coast

We stayed 2 week at Canada Azul in March 2018. The home was clean and comfortable. The view of the valley was beautiful ! The caretaker, Johnny, made us feel like old friends! He is always available and very knowledgeable. There are a lot of beaches and National Parks close for day trips. The pool is kept very clean and we used the gas grill many nights to cook our fresh fish! Pura Vida !

Very nice villa with Great views.

We really enjoyed our stay at the villa. Amazing sunset view every day. Very nice and relaxing place to spend time when not enjoying local activities. Close to the waterfall and the beach. Keep in mind that you really need 4x4 SUV to get to the property. Great Wi-Fi which helped to research and arrange the activities. The only complain is no TV cable, but host supplied DVDs. However, overall we loved it and would like to come again.

Great Location with a Beautiful View!

This rental was perfect for my family of four (2 adults and 2 children). It was truly 10 minutes to the beach 10 minutes to the waterfalls for hiking and had several options for dining close by. The pool was so refreshing at night after an afternoon on the beach and the hammock got used many times of the day! It was helpful to have a washer dryer in the home. The house was stocked with dishes, pots & pans, etc but lacked some general things like paper towels and maybe some extra towels. It would have been nice to have beach towels and/or chairs since we were traveling and couldn't bring with us. We loved our stay here and the owner was extremely responsive to any needs!

Great Property!

The property was great! It's just as pictured and highly recommended! Everything felt brand new and we had everything we needed. This was a very unique experience and something I will always remember. The only comment I have is it is best to have a 4x4 car since the last mile is a gravel mountain road which is well maintained, but not something I was used to. The beauty of the property and area made for a lovely trip

Great Place to Stay

I really enjoyed my stay in Cascada Azul and would highly recommend this home. The gated community is very secure and I felt very safe. It is a very scenic and peaceful location overlooking the Baru River valley and Pacific Ocean. The home is on a large property, so it is very private. The 200’ community waterfall was awesome. The home was well appointed with everything you need. I was able to totally relax and enjoy the beautiful Costa Rica scenery, perfect weather, and tropical wildlife while lounging in the pool or just relaxing on my back patio. The pool was the perfect temperature and had a covered area with a BBQ. One of my best vacation experiences!

Hidden Treasure

We stayed in this wonderful home for 2 weeks. It was everything we could have hoped for. Close to the towns, ocean, beaches and anything you could need. This home came with all amenities needed. The view is breathtaking and I couldn't have asked for a better place to wake up. There are toucans every day, usually at sunrise and sunset outside in the trees. Wildlife is everywhere! There is also a magnificent waterfall up the road, which is to die for. The peace and quiet and serenity of this property is something you can’t find very often, yet still close enough to go out shopping, for dinner or explore the country. Keiston is extremely helpful. I sent him a ridiculous amount of emails with questions and he didn't hesitate to answer them and help me, which made our vacation even more pleasant knowing what we should expect. He was always available if we needed anything and gave us lots of advice on things to do nearby. If you're going to Costa Rica, this is the place to stay. Great value, great owners, and a spectacular home.

Perfect for a Family Reunion

This villa is adjacent to 10 condos and 2 neighboring two bedroom villas. This was the perfect destination for a fun family reunion. Safe and secure in a gated community, we found it very peaceful and private, but convenient to stores, excursions, the beach, and restaurants. There were 3 separate pool areas. The largest one with the condos was perfect for everyone to gather and have a BBQ and swim party. The private pools with each Villa were also nice for smaller gatherings. And it was perfect to have private rooms with private baths to escape to each night with satellite TV. All the homes were fresh and new and well appointed. Very comfortable and the host was a delight; always available when needed, but otherwise giving us our privacy. All this along with a great price. Highly recommend!!

9 days in the Rainforest is not enough...

We are property owners in Cascada Azul so this was the perfect spot for us to stay. The Villa is as described. The property is situated in a location that takes advantage of the ocean and valley views. From the kitchen window each morning we could see monkeys in the trees and each evening we would see and hear the toucans. The home is equipped with everything you need for cooking and eating at home, but if you prefer to go out there are many options. We enjoyed eating at El Chicote which is near the main road that leads to Dominical. The Dominical Supermarket has a decent selection of groceries and it's close to the home. We are having a home built in Cascada Azul but until it is finished we will stay in this villa when we visit!

Amazing and Wonderful

The villa and the pool were wonderful, clean and comfortable with a view we never got tired of enjoying. Blessed with Toucans, parrots and a cute posoti to enjoy along with the view. It was secluded enough for a romantic get away and close to restaurants, shopping and the beach we will most certainly be back

The property is so beautiful. It is well kept and surrounded by the wild costa rican jungle. The sunsets are so incredible from the villa we stayed in and there is a gorgeous waterfall we hiked to right on the property. Loved staying hope we can make another trip down soon.

Absolutely amazing home

We lived in this wonderful home for five months and it was an incredible experience. The view is to die for with amazing sunsets almost every single night and beautiful early mornings in the cloud/fog. We saw at least five different species of birds each day! There were a few weeks when 15-20 toucans would come every morning and just swoop over our heads as we stood there. We still see toucans frequently. The pool is always cool and refreshing and clean (thanks to the wonderful gardener that comes once a week). The owners are phenomenal people to work with and although we never had the pleasure of meeting them, we consider them friends after all the friendly emails! If we could give it more stars or accolades we would. At the house you are not too far from the beach and all the restaurants and stores for shopping. Everything about it is great, choose to spend your vacation here, you will not regret it!!

Beautiful and breathtaking

This property was absolutely amazing. It was our first trip to Costa Rica and we wanted to have a unique stay and this definitely fit the bill! It was amazing to be surrounded by the jungle and the sounds of the waterfall. So peaceful and serene. We rented a car and drove from the airport in San Jose, definitely recommend having a car to get to the beach and others places around. The area is wonderful, tons of beaches that are peaceful and quiet, the water is beautiful! Also the soda that is at the edge of 243 and the dirt road to take you up the Cascada Azul is fantastic. Chicote I believe its called we often stopped for a beer or lunch here, don't miss it and tell them Kristen and Mike sent you!

Our visit in Costa Rica was perfect! The villa had everything we needed. It was very clean and comfortable, and waking up to the beautiful mountain vistas couldn't have been better! So very peaceful and serene. We are building a home in the development and plan to stay here during the process. The waterfalls on the property are amazing as well as off property. Great hiking and exploring to do. Lovely flowers and birds to enjoy, and the beach is just 15 minutes down the road. The Reptile zoo was amazing as well. We highly recommend staying here.

Home away from Home

My stay at Cascada Azul was an experience that I will never forget. The house itself was everything that I dreamed of and more. Very ready to come to and live in for extended periods of time, I was there for a month. It was properly furnished with the necessities of cooking and living. The views are tremendous with everyday waking to look down an incredible valley to the ocean. The owners and managers of the property are incredible people too. They were super helpful in letting us know what there was to do and if need be, they helped with booking the trips. From zip lining to snorkeling, and too many others to say, this is a perfect get away from the stress filled life. An excellent distance from town, not too far and not too close, it gave you a quiet place to quiet the mind and the heart. After staying here I am already planning my next trip back. Thanks again Bryan.

Cascada Azul

For those looking for a high degree of seclusion with the very best security, Cascada Azul is hard to beat. The villa, the pool and in fact the whole property is not overlooked from any point, but its position only a couple of hundred yards from Bryan's house, and the fact that it is within a secure gated complex makes for a totally relaxing experience. Bryan's family were in no way intrusive but always ready with advice and help when needed. They went to some lengths to assist us when our car rental company needed a Spanish translator and contact point. It's proximity to the coast, just four miles from the best whale watching opportunities in Central America, adds to the advantages for wildlife enthusiasts. Although I rented for just my wife and myself and we of course occupied the master bedroom with the luxury of an exceptionally large bed, the villa has a very adequate second bedroom and a further two can be accommodated within the living area making it comfortably ideal for a family of six. The pool, although not of Olympic dimension, was great for cooling off during the hot afternoons. There are several dining-out possibilities within a 5 or 6 mile drive and for those like us who are happy to self cater, there is more than adequate appliances. We very much enjoyed our stay at Cascada Azul and look forward to returning some time soon. Thank you Bryan for an excellent time and for the help you provided. Janet and Roy South Wales U.K.

Cascada Azul, Excellent Choice

My stay in Cascada Azul was excellent. We really enjoyed how peaceful and beautiful the area was. We had some amazing ocean view sunsets and the valley views were awesome. We loved seeing the lights of the tiny town of Baru below us at night, and also liked the sense of security from being in a gated community. The villa was very clean and comfortable and we had everything we needed. It was nice to be so close to the beach, surfing, rafting, ziplines, fishing, Reptile Zoo, horse back riding to Nayaca Waterwall, Manuel Antonio beach, and the city of San Isidro. All the conveniences were within 10 minutes: ATM/bank, gas, stores, restaurants, gifts, tours; yet the Villa was a private and peaceful retreat. The owners were very kind and hospitable and helped our stay be excellent. We plan on coming back again and highly recommend it.

Amazing!!

My family stayed at the villa for 4 weeks and it was amazing. If you are looking for a getaway this is the place. Remote, but not too remote being a short drive from Dominical town which is where you can shop for souvenirs, pick up some groceries, grab a bite, get surf lessons, or just have a drink. We travelled with our 2 children 3 and 12 so, safe for kids, they will never leave the pool, but who could blame them wait until you witness the view yourself! The property is well maintained and safe. Bryan and his family were very welcoming and helpful in regards to where to shop, eat and activities. We will be back soon! Don't forget to ask about the Jungle Retreat!!

Casdaca Azul

The villas at Cascada Azul are amazing. Be careful you might not want to ever leave this place. Not only do you have hot water in the bathrooms and a king size bed in master bedroom, but you have air conditioning and ceiling fans. The whole villa is beautifully handcrafted and built. From the villa that we stayed in we had an amazing sunset view that was breath taking. I always wanted to be home at that time of day. The appliances are nice and having a washer/dryer combo for your clothes is another plus. Another wonderful thing about these villas is the owner of the villa is right up the road to answer your questions. Okay, not too many questions b/c they has a life too. You feel very safe there, and that's worth more than anything. It's a great location to Domincal and Perez Zeledon. Which are wonderful places to go for your beach needs and market needs. And the villa is kid friendly as well and has an outdoor shower to wash all the sand off from the beach. And enough spaces and cubby holes for all you items. Overall I give this place an A+.

Wonderful Accommodations

Cascada Azul exceeded my expectations. The villa I stayed in was very clean and spacious. I had no problems at all. The villa is located in a great location. I was in Dominical in 10 minutes to surf the great waves. Bryan is the owner, who dropped by to make sure all was well. Staying at Cascada Azul worked well with my budget. The full kitchen was great, as I cooked many of my meals. The wireless internet helped me stay in touch with all the news of the day. I highly recommend Cascada Azul as the place to stay on the central pacific side of Costa Rica.

a great place for your holidays

I loved the place ! Nearby Dominical with the beach and San Isidro for pleasant shopping, Cascada Azul offers you the perfect starting point for many excursions in the area. You do need a car when staying there, because it is a bit higher up on the mountain, with a splendid valley and ocean view. Beautiful nature and absolute rest are guaranteed and the house itself is clean, cosy and offers you all the comfort you can wish. And when you step out of the living room, you can jump right away into the swimming pool. A place we can warmly recommend!

Cascada Azul is a Great Getaway

After traveling extensively throughout beautiful Costa Rica, the time my wife and I had at Cascada Azul still remains one of our fondest memories. The contemporary villa where we stayed was very comfortable with all the amenities, great privacy and spectacular mountain and ocean views. The owners were very helpful, kind people and the location is simply fantastic. One can spend the day relaxing at the villa, hiking to the private waterfalls on the grounds or enjoying one of the countless activities, restaurants and beaches within minutes’ drive. This place is fantastic and well worth a visit!
