The pictures of this property do not do it justice. Breathtaking views and instant access to the beach and peak at Playa Negra. Beautifully landscaped grounds and abundant comfortable outside living space dispersed between three separate structures. Bedrooms are comfortable and private but families should know that they are in two separate buildings on the opposite sides of the property. Kitchen is modest but sufficient and grill is in-ground charcoal fired. Easy access to Negra dining and nearby breaks, but can be cut off by high water due to very heavy rain (not an issue for us). Beachgrass Properties personnel were responsive, professional, and extremely helpful before, during, and after the stay. We'll definitely be coming back.

pictures don't do justice to the actual layout of this place. It is so laid back and private. We almost felt guilty for not brining anyone with us (almost). It's a little off the beaten path for first timers, but not hard to find and well worth it. The management people were more than helpful and everyone was very friendly. We are already looking forward to returning.

Casa Vista Azul was a spectacular home away from home! Mary was incredibly helpful and provided amazing activity recommendations--do everything she suggests, and you'll have a fabulous trip. The grounds were gorgeous with flowers overflowing in every corner. The house was immaculately kept with comfy beds and blissful al fresco living spaces. The view is mesmerizing and yet feels so private. The beach is lovely for surfing or splashing in tide pools. Access to quaint towns, tasty restaurants, and gorgeous beaches was easy and fun via dirt roads. We are already trying to figure out how to go back!

“Casa Vista Azul - perfect!”
Reviewed January 12, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

We stayed almost 2 weeks at Casa Vista Azul. The house is in a beautiful location on the beach and close to everything in Playa Negra. Mary with Beach Grass Realty was a great property manager, responsive to all of our requests, and keeps the property in prestine condition - which in Costa Rica can be quite a challenge!

“Amazing view and friendly people.”
Reviewed July 31, 2011 for a stay in July 2011

We stayed at Vista Azul recently and found the view more amazing than the pictures can show. It consists of 3 buildings - one has two room and an adjoining bathroom, the covered rancho, and a separate room and bathroom next to the kitchen. The house isn't super fancy but if you want fancy amenities you should stay at a resort with the other tourists. This house is very nice and you feel right at home in Costa Rica - it is great for those who want a nice place but also to feel like they are in a foreign country. The house is a quick walk down a path to the beach and commands a 180 degree view of the ocean. We spent most of our time under the rancho or lounging by the pool watching the surfers and people on the beach. Mary from Beach Grass helped us book our few excursions - horseback riding with Paradise Stables, a massage (one of the best I've ever had), and zip lining with Pura Aventura. She made everything easy and we had a great combination of activity and relaxation. The surfer with us loved that he could check the line up from the porch! If you come, make sure you follow Mary's directions and not the GPS - the road she takes you on is much better. Stock up on groceries in Tamarindo at the Auto Mercado off the main beach road - it is next to an Apple store on the left and if you get to the main beach you have gone too far...much better selection. I miss Negra already! Pura Vida!
