Me and my 3 friends had an absolutley amazing stay at Jessica and Mikey's place in Mal Pais. The accomdations were exactly as detailed and the beauty of the Villas and the surround mountain jungle exceeded all expectations. The views from the Villas are incredible and Jessica and Mikey were super hospitable, sharing with us all of the local hotspots for good grub, drinks, and activities. We will definitley be coming back for more!

The Villas are great with amazing views. No more than 5 minutes to the city center (using a 4x4), but very very quiet and private.

We absolutely loved out stay at Vista Azul Villas. We reserved both houses and they both were great. Jessica's husband met up on the main road through Mal Pais/Playa Carmen, to make sure we went up the right road. I won't lie; the road was steep, and it was rocky. But it also was awesome, and we got used to it (too) quickly. I was very glad to have a 4x4. The villas were clear and spacious, though we spent most of our days outside in the pool or patio (or at the beaches!). The wifi was reliable and fast, and the air conditioning cool. Our resident gecko kept any bugs out, too. The views from the villas and the pool are absolutely amazing; stunning. My daughter played in the pool, while I grilled fresh fish, and my wife listened to the howler monkeys (which we did get to see from the villas one morning). Jessica, Mikey, and Wyatt are great, and I would recommend anyone (with a 4x4) to stay at their place. We loved it.

Jessica and Mike were great! We all absolutely loved our stay at their villas! Getting to the house is definitely an adventure, they state in the listing that you need four wheel drive and you totally do. Mike met us down in town once we arrived and lead the way up to the villas which was super helpful. The duo added to our stay by providing our group with surf lesson at the beach by Mike and a private yoga session on our deck by Jessica. Mike also set up for a chef friend of his to come by one night and cook us an amazing three course dinner (salad, apz and dinner) at the villas so we were able to enjoy the sunset. Thanks again!! WE LOVED VISTA AZUL VILLAS!

Everything was exactly how it was pictured, their communication was great before and even after when we left something at the house! 4x4 is a must have. Everything went very well during our stay!

We had an amazing time at the Vista Azul. The place is incredible. The view from the deck is probably the most beautiful view in town! There is a big deck in front of each villa, a balcony at the upper levels and a huge deck were the pool is. We really enjoy just staying outside and watch the waves and the awesome vegetation and gardens. We even saw howler monkeys right beside the house. The pool was just amazing, super clean and you have it all for yourself. We stayed for 7 nights. We were 6 adults, sleeping 3 in each villa. It was perfect for us but the upper level of the villas is only one big room so you have to know well you friends. The kitchens are equipped with all the basics which allow us to cook nice dinners a few times. Nice BBQ close to the pool, just make sure you have enough charcoal! Jessica and Mikey were very welcoming. They even waited for us at the bottom of the road at our arrival to show us the way. They were really of a big help to advise us of the activities in the surroundings, of the best rental places and restaurants in town. There are lots of day trip you can do in this area. The villa is located in Playa Carmen which I believe is the best location on this coast. We went from Malpais to Playa manzanillo by the beach road and Playa Carmen has the best vibe with all the great restaurants and markets. Santa Teresa has a better beach but it's very close, about 5 minute drives. By the way, you definitely need a 4x4 to reach the villa. An atv is even better! Totally recommend staying at the Vista Azul! I already want to return!! Thanks for everything Jessica, Mickey and Steve!
