About this property

Located in a sparsely populated gated community in Playa Negra, Casa Vista Azul is an unsurpassed location for anyone who loves the ocean, sun, sand, and the warm gentle air of the tropics. Casa Vista Azul has one of the most spectacular ocean views in Costa Rica, hands down. Enjoy unobstructed views of the Pacific Ocean from any point on the property; SURFERS CAN CHECK THE CONDITION OF ONE OF COSTA RICA'S PREMIER RIGHT HAND BREAKS BY SIMPLY SITTING UP IN BED IN THE MORNING! A private path leads directly from the house to a calm stretch of beach perfect for swimming, snorkeling, and horseback riding in the surf. This is a tropical paradise for the entire family!

This single level 3 bedroom / 2 bath home consists of two separate apartments, a large open air Rancho and Infinity edge swimming pool. The structures are connected by rock and stone pathways and surrounded by lush tropical landscaping and garden art. The simple rustic architecture offers a combination of open and enclosed spaces; it is designed with the ocean air and climate in mind, while offering quiet and privacy when desired.

The 1 bedroom building consists of a 260 square-foot bedroom with air conditioning, ceiling fan, built-in queen bed and single bed, wooden closet and chest of drawers, and a full bath. Just outside the bedroom is a spacious 30’x10’ sitting area with steps down to the yard, a large 12’x16’ open air dining area with ceiling fan, recessed lighting, and a large custom-made dining table. The fully equipped kitchen opens to the dining area, and can be closed off with wooden shutters.

The 1,350 square-foot 2 bedroom building offers a cozy outdoor seating area with ceramic fountain and spacious decks. One bedroom has a built-in king bed and a day bed; the other bedroom includes a built-in queen bed and day bed, as well as a free standing queen bed. The bedrooms are separated by a shared full bath, and both have wide sliding glass doors which open out to the deck/sitting area. Situated in the center of the property, between the one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments, is the thatched-roof Rancho.

The Rancho is a 400-square-foot outdoor living area, complete with wet bar and outdoor shower. The rear portion of the Rancho is sided with wooden lattice for privacy. It has built-in stucco benches with large cushions, and is perfect for spending a lazy afternoon around the pool or watching the sun set. The rancho joins to the infinity edge swimming pool with a step down deck. There are wooden loungers and chairs around the pool, great for relaxing and soaking in the spectacular ocean views.

This property is located near Playa Negra. One of the breaks featured in Endless Summer 2. This is one of the Costa Rica's best spots. A rocky reef right-hand break, Playa Negra is fast, hollow and can hold some size. It's tends to be bigger than the other spots around here. Fast waves, rocky bottom, juicy barrels, and ripping locals make this a great break, but not for the beginner.

This property is also located near Playa Blanca. Breaks directly in front of the Hotel Iguanazul. During a strong enough swell, this wave appears far offshore. When it breaks, it breaks well and it breaks big - usually at least twice overhead. There is a strong channel current leading out, so it is not that hard to get into the lineup - which will probably be sparse.

This property is also located near Playa Avellanas. A collection of left and right beach breaks and reef breaks. The surf breaks range from Little Hawaii at the north end of the beach to a fun left at the south end. Low tide can get really reefy, medium or high tide is your best bet. Playa Avellanas is long (and beautiful) beach, so spread out and find a peak away from the crowd.

Surfer Reviews

saraconway took a Wavecation in August

Posted on Tuesday, August 18, 2015 - 9:48pm from Illinois

Surf Rating:

Overall Satisfaction:
Breaks Surfed: I don't surf :-(
Favorite Break: I don't surf :-(
Wave/Swell Conditions: The surfers seemed happy! :-)

Thoughts I want to pass on:

This house completely exceeded our expectations. It's beautiful, expansive, so comfortable, and so remote. At night we turned off all the lights, got in the pool and gazed at the stars. I'll never forget that -- it's a memory of my sons' childhoods that I'll treasure forever.

This is a great Wavecation for:

Families with Kids
Families with Teens
Girls Getaway
Luxury Seekers
