You will feel right at home during your vacation in the quaint tropical fishing town of Mal Pais, Costa Rica.
The house has two very spacious bedrooms with a private bathroom in each and ample closet space. Each bedroom has a queen size bed with quality cotton linens. Bath and beach towels are provided and daily housekeeping is included with your stay.
We also have a fully fitted kitchen with a dual stage water filtration system, it's got all the bells and whistles so you can cook up a storm. The kitchen opens up to a big garden and pool view covered terrace. On the terrace you'll find a seven piece patio set, perfect for your morning coffee, breakfast or a dinner setup. You can always hang in the hammock or just walk over to the pool to cool off and relax to the sound of the tropics and the nearby surf.
The cool thing about our tropical pool deck is it's humungous tiki hut, which throws enough shade over part of the pool so you can lounge in the water during the warmest hours of the day. It's also has a few hammocks, a BBQ and a large patio set.
We have two broadband fiber optic WiFi networks, which extend all the way to the pool area. There's a utility room with a washer and dryer which makes it very convenient to our guests, especially if you stay for an extended period. There's also a half bath in the utility room.
What makes our location ideal is the fact that you're within a short walk to the beautiful beaches and tide pools of Mal Pais. We are a five minute drive from the Mal Pais canopy for a super fun zip-line tour with family and friends! Another five minute drive takes to one of the most beautiful beaches in the area called Playa Cuevas aka the Swiss Beach, amazing! Plus you are a short drive to downtown for shopping, dining and some fun nightlife.
There is also a really great restaurant just a few minutes walk from the house, called Mary's Restaurant, it's a local favorite. They serve their own farm raised free range daily specials, local seafood and wood fired pizza. They have a couple of pool tables and an overall great atmosphere. It's proximity to the house makes it super convenient.
In a nutshell our beach home is the perfect choice for couples, small families or a few friends who want comfort, privacy and security set back in a quiet tropical setting.
Our property is 1.25 acres of lush tropics. Relax poolside or take a stroll to the beautiful beaches of Mal Pais.
Interaction with guests
I'm in close correspondence with all our guests during their inquiry, throughout their stay and after their checkout. I answer questions within a few hours at all times.
Additionally our bilingual concierge Diana, is there to greet and be of assistance to our guests during their stay. Diana and I maintain close communication and pay close attention to guest requests and feedback.
Other things to note
Our house has an additional unit upstairs that can accommodate 7 people. I like to mention that to our guests in case they have additional family members or friends that are traveling with them looking for a place to stay. Ask us for our Airbnb listing link.
One great perk our guests get to really enjoy is our proximity to the Mal Pais fishery. You can buy fresh fish straight from the line from the local fisherman, they will filet if for you on the spot, so you can cook it or grill it at the comfort of your home. It's literally a 5 minute drive from the villa.
Yoga, Pilates & Massages
Our guests can schedule private yoga and pilates classes in our brand new poolside tiki hut. Just ask us ahead of time so we can notify our instructor. There are also a couple really good yoga studios in town we can recommend just let us know if you are interested. The same goes for massage therapy, we can arrange them to come to the villa or we can recommend a couple really nice spas in town.
Local Tours & Activities
I highly recommend our guests to explore Mal Pais, Santa Teresa and Montezuma. Take the hassle out of planning local activities and tours, let me put an itinerary together for your family or group of friends with hand picked local tours. There are plenty of super fun kid friendly tours as well.
The owner Miguel is a local, born and raised in Mal Pais and speaks excellent English and probably one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet. He tailors his tours depending on the guests if it's a family with kids, couples or a group of friends. Needless to say he know the area like the back of his hand. Some of the tours include off road ATV tours, Montezuma waterfall tours, horseback riding, surf lessons, stand up paddle board tours, hiking the Cabo Blanco national park, the Mal Pais zip line, fishing and snorkeling tours just to name a few.
Private chef services are available to our guests. Ask us for our breakfast, lunch and dinner menu options. Vegetarian, vegan and kid menus are available. Plus special birthday and holiday requests are welcome as well. Our chef is a phenomenal pastry chef so expect excellent baked goods, pastries and desserts.
If you are traveling with kids and need a babysitter for a night out, our concierge Diana is great with kids. She is one of the teachers at the local school. Just let her know and when you see her.

Mal Pais and Santa Teresa have been relatively below radar of the Costa Rican traveler. Discover this beautiful part of the planet on your next vacation to Costa Rica. You'll feel right at home at one of my stylish vacation rentals, while the relaxing tropical environment will most definitely let you unwind.
I enjoy watching people fall in love with Mal Pais, the locals and the laid-back lifestyle. Funny how our guests are often tempted to extend their vacation, while some in fact do ; )
My name is Adi and I've lived for over 20 years in Costa Rica, which is about half of my life. My family and some of my most amazing friends live just around the corner.
I'd like to mention that if this is a surf trip you are planning or someone in your group is a surfer you're in for a pleasant surprise. This is one of the best stretches of coastline along the Pacific coast of Costa Rica. The combination of consistency and variety of both sandbars and reefs makes Mal Pais and Santa Teresa a surfers paradise. By the way the same goes for those who enjoy the outdoors, this place is simply magical.
Start your day with a fresh brew of excellent, organic, Costa Rican coffee... surf, explore the nearby beaches and relax with your family and friends poolside. It's all right here! What else does one need. Welcome to paradise : )
