casa azul

Ccasa Azul is next door to the "Crayon House" in Colonia Meteorologico, just around the corner from Mango Cafe. It's a nice location, but not what I'd call "not too far from a beach" except in that it's a small island and nothing is too far from a beach. Still, you might want to check for something on the Bahia side so you'd be closer to places like Zama or Captain Dulche's for your beach. I suggest you contact Marla at Isla Budget Rentals. Here's their web site:

You might consider Casa Havana. It's in centro but not the touristy section, some units have ocean views and it's a fairly short walk to Playa Norte

We are staying at Casa Azul for 10 nights the end of February into March. This will be our first stay there. We are really looking forward to new experiences and lots of exploring as well as hitting up our favorites from previous trips. Have stayed at Bahia Chac Chi, Casa El Pio and Privileges Aluxes before.

So far I have Mango Cafe, Monchis and Bastos on the list of mid island restaurants to try. We're planning to rent a golf cart for a few days, taxis and walking the rest of the time.

I have been to Casa Azul several times as I had friends staying there. I really like the dipping pool, grill and common area on the roof. The units are small, but great for 2 people and seemed to be fully equipped. The couple that owns it is very nice and i enjoyed visiting with them. The negatives I noticed would be that the units seemed dark...not a lot of sunshine and the owners smoke and were many times sitting on the main floor patio where you had to walk. I did not notice the units smelling of smoke, tho. The steps going to the second floor are a little hard to navigate. It is close to where we stay, but it isn't "close" to any beach as DMartin said.

we were at casa azul in june and will be back in feb we really liked it there. I also stayed at Zina's guest house in La Gloria and really like it there, it was a nice walk to playa lancheros and captain dulches. we mainly switched to casa azul because it was a bit cheaper, zina is still a really good price brighter aptments and kinda liked being able to walk easily to the more private beach clubs. I did like being close to the Mango cafe when staying at Casa Azul and a bit closer walk into north beach (still fairly long though, I needed to walk off all the wonderful food)
