We found Casa Olas Azul a magical place. We intended to have a quiet vacation - resting, reading, swimming and enjoying the reprise from winter. But, we could not have imagined that the home and surroundings would be as wonderful as they were. was. The house is modern, beautifully designed and wonderfully appointed. The views from the patio are magnificent of the Pacific and the whale's tail. We loved having the pool to cool off in. We have been to Costa Rica a number of times, but this stay was the best we have ever had. For those who wish to explore the area, Uvita and Dominca, the villages near Casa Olas Azul, offer multiple beaches and a nature reserve and more adventurous outings can easily be planned during your stay.
We had a great week staying at Casa Olas Azul. We were up every morning at 5:30 watching the sun rise and again by the pool at 5:45 for sunset. The house is brand new and had a great open feel to it. Situated in a very quiet location in the guarded community with wildlife putting on a show.
We had an amazing stay at Casa Olas Azul. The house is perfectly situated for amazing views of the ocean and the whales tale. Relax on a lounge or hang in the pool and watch beautiful mountain sunrises and gorgeous ocean sunsets. We were greeted each morning by singing birds including 2 types of toucans and hummingbirds. Coati and butterflies also made appearances. It is a 20 minute drive to the main road, but once there, you are minutes away from downtown Dominical, several beautiful beaches, kayak rentals at Playa Tortuga, a waterfall hike (we saw a sloth, cool giant insects, leaf cutter ants, a tree full of hummingbirds, and even a monkey) to a huge double fall where you can swim and cliff dive. We bought fresh fruit right down the road at a stand that has howler monkeys hanging out in the trees. It was a wonderful place to stay for our first visit to Costa Rica..
The kitchen area at Casa Olas Azul is completely modern, with a granite-top island for making meals and stainless steel appliances including a refrigerator, stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, blender, icemaker and all the cutlery you’ll need to prepare perfect feasts each day of your stay. Next to the kitchen is a living area with two sofas, a flat-screen television and DVD player. The villa also comes equipped with 4G Internet service, a secured safe for your valuables as well as a washer and dryer unit.
There are air-conditioning units in both of the bedrooms. The master bedroom features a luxurious king bed and the aforementioned extraordinary ocean views, while the second bedroom contains a pair of twin beds that can be combined to form a single, bigger bed. There is also a blowup mattress in the villa for additional sleeping space. Overall, it’s an ideal setup for families with children or a pair of couples.
Although subtle, there are some interesting aspects to the main bathroom as well. The sink resembles a small boulder with its insides carved out, and the shower floor is laced with tiny rocks. There is also a secure, frosted shower door that leads from the bathroom to the backyard. A second restroom, sans shower, is also inside the villa.
Plan to spend plenty of time outdoors at Casa Olas Azul. The infinity pool is breathtaking, and the weather is absolutely perfect to hang around on the poolside lounge chairs or grill some fresh fish on the barbeque. In addition, a landscaped tropical garden highlights the backyard foliage.

Casa Olas Azul is a magnificent vacation villa located within one of the most desirable private hillside communities in southern Pacific Costa Rica. Nestled in a lush, vibrant cloud forest more than 1,400 feet above sea level and teeming with wildlife, Casa Olas Azul features state-of-the-art amenities, world-class ocean views, towering vaulted ceilings and plenty of privacy. Construction on the villa, which features two bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms, was completed in August 2015 and the results are stunning.
Throughout multiple parts of the property – including the kitchen, bedrooms, infinity pool and backyard barbeque area – there are incredible sightlines of the famous Whale’s Tail at Marino Ballena National Park, a rocky reef that stretches more than a mile out to sea and is completely exposed during low tides. As the ocean water fills in on high tides, the reef shelf disappears for a few hours, only to appear again as the tide rushes back out to sea. It truly is a sight to behold as nature works its course each Costa Rican day.
Breathtaking Panoramic Ocean Views of The Whale's Tail
This luxurious vacation villa is located in the Costa Verde property development, about 20 minutes off the coastal highway and almost directly centered between the towns of Dominical and Uvita, where you can find restaurants, grocery stores and pharmacies. The road to the development features both dirt and concrete, and a 4x4 vehicle is required. There is a security gate to enter the grounds with a full-time guard on duty. This area is extremely safe and incredibly beautiful. Because it’s located high in the cloud forest, the temperature at Casa Olas Azul is often 10 degrees cooler than down at the beach.
As guests in the Costa Verde Estate development, your group will have access to the best outdoor tennis court in the southern zone, a workout room adjacent to the tennis court, a large outdoor picnic area and a helicopter pad in case of serious medical emergencies. Tennis rackets and balls are provided by the house, so there’s little need to pack your playing gear for the trip.
All in all, Casa Olas Azul is a prime vacation destination, perhaps the best in all of Costa Rica. From outdoor adventure to indoor luxury, this is the spot to be for viewing remarkable wildlife – monkeys, toucans and sloths are common visitors – or simply kicking your feet up poolside and reading a good book. So take the plunge and reserve your once-in-a-lifetime vacation at Casa Olas Azul today!
