The Space----------- The Cabins There are two identical 800-square-foot cabins, named Plenamar and Veramar. 100 feet from the beach, the cabins are surrounded by lush tropical gardens. The first floor has two twin beds, two trundle beds, and a small kitchen/dining area. A covered porch opens to the garden, and there is an outdoor shower. The second floor has a bedroom with a queen-size bed and a bathroom. Rooms have ceiling fans and AC. There are phones. Long-distance calls may be made with a pre-paid card. There is wi-fi and two internet cafés are nearby. The caretaker lives 100 yards away. She prepares a great breakfast and brings it to the cabins. It’s typical, tasty Costa Rican food: black rice and beans, tortillas, scrambled eggs, tropical fruit, and coffee. And it’s reasonably priced ($5 per person). She can also prepare lunches. ----------- Location & Activities The beaches of San Miguel and Playa Coyote are one uninterrupted ribbon of powdery sand that stretches for about 8 miles and is blissfully crowd-free. Until just a few years ago, very few people — other than the local residents and families from the capital, San Jose — came to these beaches. By the end of the 1990s, when the 5-star resort at Punta Islita (15 kilometers north of San Miguel) opened with a small airport, visitors started noticing San Miguel. Activities include: Horse-back riding, surfing, swimming and watching wildlife in nearby estuaries, visiting the turtle conservation stations, hiking through the Jungle Butterfly Farm, and helicopter rides. Day trips one hour away include the beaches of Samara, Carrillo, and Nosara, and the town of SantaTeresa. ----------- Rates Cabins can be rented to 2 persons or 4 persons. There is no charge for kids under 7. Maximum in each cabin, including kids: 5 4 guests: $140 per night, minimum 3 nights 2 guests: $120 per night, minimum 3 nights Additional guest: $15 per night (maximum of 5 guests per cabin)

                  Cristal Azul is an award winning property that offers incredible privacy, tranquility and barefoot luxury off the beaten path. A true beach lovers destination perfect for small groups and families looking to step off the beaten path and experience what Costa Rica was like before the world arrived. Not for everyone, ours is a place that takes an adventurous spirit to reach however, once you have arrived it will take your breath away we guarantee. “Off the beaten path” takes on a literal meaning here. The road to reach us is not for the faint of heart and 4WD is mandatory to reach us (and also the best for this area in general). But we promise - the effort to reach us is worth the privacy & the immersion with nature and local wildlife you will enjoy at this cozy hidden retreat in paradise! Once you get here you will have a chance to experience what Costa Rica was like before the world arrived! "There are so many highlights of our stay at Cristal Azul, with the top being the warmth and hospitality of Zene and Henner. Zene helped with a number of arrangements for our group of 7, two families with older kids (teens and a 21 year old) with surfing (do try a lesson with Connie and Ingo!), a fantastic lunch at Los Corrales, near-by tidepools for the explorers, and fabulous dinners at the rancho and on the beach at Henner's Locos Cocos. We loved the ever- amazing pool overlooking the ocean where we spent time cooling off and watching the waves, birds and lizards. The boys racked up a number of games on the pool table; and the older boys in the hammock. And Zene is right - a 4-wheel drive is needed for the drive! It's daunting the first time and gets better once you get used to it. Completely worth it to spend time in this away-from-it-all oasis. " -Michelle, Washington DC 2016 Cristal Azul is located on a hillside on 14 acres of private property with no public access and no signs pointing the way. There is a gated entrance and the property is 1KM up a rolling hillside nestled on the edge of the hill. The town and surrounding area of San Miguel are incredibly safe and crime is practically non existent and petty. Four charming cabinas all with floor to ceiling windows, 180' views of the Pacific and queen beds (the nearest to the rancho also has a bunk bed) are set overlooking the beaches of San Miguel and Coyote. Each has AC, hot water, ceiling fans, home-made teak furniture, fine bedding & linens and open air shower. All of the cabinas have pool towels and beach towels for you to use while here and a few Boogey Boards, coolers, chairs and umbrellas are available to take down to the beach for the day. The over-sized open-air “Rancho” is set overlooking a vanishing edge pool and has a bar, dining, and lounge area. A professional pool table and plenty of games and puzzles are available for you to enjoy at your leisure. There is also WiFi in the Rancho, on most days! Guests can walk from the rancho to the beach via a rocky foot-path that accesses the main dirt road, otherwise it is a slow paced five minute drive down the hill. A full breakfast is served daily in the rancho starting with fresh fruit salad, juice, tea or Costa Rican cafe and guests are served the traditional Gallo Pinto with farm fresh eggs, tortillas, local cheeses, bacon, chorizos and other daily treats. The owners of Cristal Azul also own LocosCocos, the only lunch box on the beach serving catch of the day fish and seafood dishes and the coldest beers in town. Guests are welcome to add a meal plan to their rate to include meals from LocosCocos. "Breakfast was outstanding each morning and the food was so delicious that we elected to eat each of our dinners with Henner and Zene." Lonnie, Cole Camp MI 2016 Your hosts, Zene and Henner live on the property in the main house which is far enough away to offer you incredible privacy (200 meters) but close enough when you need any help planning a day trip or massages in the Rancho, or anything else at all. We, along with our staff, are here to offer you as much or as little as you need. We promise you comfort and a touch of luxury in a place that many consider to one of the last untouched hidden gems of Costa Rica. Guests at Cristal Azul have the opportunity to see and experience a way of life that has been replaced with gated communities, high-rise hotels, and condos. There is plenty of light adventure to enjoy guided or unguided and our proximity to Samara & Mal Pais offer excellent day trip excursions. A truly personalized experience filled with old fashioned fun, fine local cuisine and culture await you and your guests at Cristal Azul. It is our goal that you leave wishing you could stay a little longer! Check out our reviews on TripAdvisor for more information about us and our beach bar, LocosCocos!

                  The beaches of San Miguel and Playa Coyote are one uninterrupted ribbon of powdery sand that stretches for about eight miles and is blissfully crowd-free. Until just a few years ago, very few people — other than the local residents and families from the capital, San José — came to these beaches. By the end of the 1990s, when the five-star resort at Punta Islita (15 km north of San Miguel) opened with a small airport, visitors started noticing San Miguel. There are two identical cabins named Plenamar and Veramar. Each cabin, developed on a 1/3-acre parcel fronting the beach, has two floors totaling 800 square feet with two bedrooms and one bath. The cottages were built in 2009. The first floor is 16' x 24', has two twin beds with two extra trundle beds, and a small kitchen-dining area. An attached 12' x 16' covered porch opens to the garden. There is an outdoor shower. The second floor has a 15' x 16' bedroom with a queen bed and a 5' x 12' bathroom. Walls and roof are done with masonry and reinforced concrete. Floors, doors, and trim are made of local sustainable woods — Cedar, Cenizaro (Samanea saman), and Pochote (Bombacopsis quinata). Finish specs feature porcelain and glass tiles, Baldwin door hardware, Toto plumbing fixtures, and Grohe faucets. Upper floor Bedroom has A/C. All rooms have ceiling fans. Only a few hundred yards south of the property, Estero San Miguel, fills and empties with the tides. It's a great place to swim and watch wildlife. Howler monkeys are frequently seen—and heard! Further south and larger, Estero Coyote, runs several kilometers inland and features a small fishing harbor. There are boats available for hire to tour the estuary or to go fishing. Visit one of the turtle conservation stations, in San Miguel or Caletas. In July - August, you can see the Arribadas, the arrival of turtles on the beach to lay their eggs, watch the eggs hatch and see all the newborn turtles swim to the ocean. You can rent horses in the area, and there is very good surfing and boggie boarding right in front of the cabins. Keywords: Bungalow, Casita, Cabin

                  This beachfront home is a place where you can laze in the hammocks, soak up the sun, ride the waves and listen to the music. If you’re in the mood to sightsee, you can go horseback riding on the beach, tour the butterfly farm, go hiking, fishing, dine at one of the local restaurants and more. We have a wonderful property manager who lives close by and a caretaker who lives at the back of the property. Keywords: beachfront, beach, house, guanacaste, playa san miguel

                  Luna Azul can accommodate groups of up to 12 people and has been furnished with families in mind. Facilities were constructed to North American standards for safety and convenience. In addition, maintenance, security and service are provided by a separately housed caretaker. Ask them about fresh fruit from the property! Nearby restaurants and Hotel Punta Islita offer four star dining, spa and golf opportunities. The location makes this an adventure property. The environment creates an opportunity to indulge across a full spectrum from solitude to elegance to local nightlife at several bars in the area. Rather than retreat to air conditioned isolation, the house is designed for life 'in the breeze' - soaking in the rich tropical sights, sounds and smells inaccessible to those that decline to adjust to equatorial climates. That's not to say comfort is secondary! Shade, pools, outdoor showers, hammocks and fans are strategically maintained to encourage guests to constantly seek interaction with the unique experiences this elevated refuge presents: monkeys howling at sunrise, tree frogs singing at night, birds playing in the trees in the late afternoon shade, raptors, vultures and storks seeking thermals - coming up and right over your head as you relax in the pool ... can't get that stuff in a hotel room! If surfing is what you're looking for, look no further. Playa Camaronal access requires no river crossings so it's ready to go even during wet season ... 15 minutes from the house. Playa San Miguel can produce phenomenal combo swells. Within a 30 minute drive there are left points, San Onofre style breaks, beach breaks and rock reef breaks easily accessible year round from a comfortable center point. Read the swell over coffee in the morning from this perfect vantage point. Many breaks in the area are yours to explore! Just a beginner? Soft top surfboards and our recommended beach are a sure recipe for success. There's plenty of space for two families to enjoy lounging by the pool, swinging in hammocks, cooking, swimming, floating and relaxing on top of this comfortable, breeze-swept ridgeline ... away from it all but with assistance at the ready should you need it. A 'jungle' trail has been gently maintained on the property below the house for morning walks and wildlife viewing - guided by onsite staff if desired! A favorite routine is to pack up coolers full of goodies and sand chairs, head to one of the local beaches for a morning surf/swim then return to the pool, shade and breeze for the afternoon. Simple, adventurous, satisfying. Wide Range of Beach Opportunities: Fantastic family surf adventures waiting for those ready to venture out to the broad range of beaches within 30 minutes drive of the house. Playa Coyote has a gentle sloping, sheltered beach that is great for whitewash adventures and the inexperienced. Grab one of the soft-top surfboards at the house and get pics of the kids on their first stand-up! Playa San Miguel has a more challenging wave and great beach play family-style. This is our go-to beach for surf, coolers of beer, fresh fruit and lazy mornings in the shade of coco palms while the tide gets just right for a paddle out. Smaller surf is beginner friendly, sizeable combo swells can challenge any surfing level. Playa Camaronal is a fantastic break that can hold pretty good size. Limited shade and heavily sloped beach make this primarily a surfer's beach. There are shade opportunities and a turtle sanctuary for those not surfing - just ask and we'll tell you how to dial up a memorable family day at any beach. Food!: The convenience of breakfast at your own pace and time is invaluable. The morning light playing on the estuary below is a constant distraction. Local groceries in Pueblo Nuevo, Bejuco, Corrozalito, San Francisco de Coyote mean fresh produce and provisions for any level of culinary activity desired. Very convenient to stop and grab a cool drink and any items you need on the way home from the beaches. Don't feel like cooking? A wide range of dining experiences are available within 15 minutes from the house - breakfast lunch or dinner. Some guests have even arranged for chef services at the house. Come enjoy 'El Campo' - the countryside , where Ticos come to relax during their holidays. You'll leave feeling refreshed and amazed at how immersion in local environment and culture can invigorate the soul!
