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 guest during their stay. Diana and I maintain close communication and pay close attention to guest requests and feedback.
The great thing about our location is that the most important thing is just a short walk away. The beach! In fact it's more like a 7 minute walk. Even a shorter walk is Mary's Restaurant, which we highly recommend for their seafood specials and an overall fun atmosphere to hang with family and friends and shoot some pool. There is a small convenient store (Super Chico) in town and a surf shop (Feedom Riding), both are a short walk from the villa.
We recommend all our guest to have a means of transport so you can get to enjoy more of the area. We can suggest rental car agencies which have very competitive prices just message us. Another option is to rent ATVs. We can arrange the delivery of ATVs to the villa ahead of time so that they are here when you get here. Taxis are available in town and our concierge would be more than happy to arrange pick-ups and drop-offs.
Other Things to Note
One of the nicest things about our location our proximity to the Mal Pais Fishery. You can head over there and buy some fresh fish right off the line. The fisherman will filet it for you right on the spot.
The variety of fish caught off the Mal Pais coast includes Red Snapper, Sea Bass, Grouper, Snook & Tuna just to name a few. It really depends on the season. It's just down the road!
If you are traveling with children we'd like to mention that our concierge Diana is great with kids. She is a local school teacher and she runs a children camp. If you need babysitting or nanny service during your stay just lets us know ahead of time.
Ask our concierge Diana for snorkeling gear, we have a couple of brand new sets.

Adi was incredibly helpful and quick to respond to all of our questions before we came down to Costa Rica. The concierge Diana also was very friendly and told us all we needed to know about the place. The house itself is modern and clean, with a beautiful kitchen and a wonderful scenic balcony. Me and four friends rented the "penthouse," which is essentially the upstairs floor of the house. The reason for giving four stars is the third room (with a single bed) ended up being way too hot at night (probably hotter than 80º). It also wasn't clear to us based on the listing that we'd only be renting the upstairs portion of the house. Other than that we had an excellent time at the house and would recommend it to other travelers.
Thank you Chris, appreciate the great feedback and the recommendation. Heard you guys had a fabulous time with Miguel's surf lessons! I will defiantly make sure the air temp situation on that third room is resolved thank you so much for letting me know. Best Regards and hope to host you guys sometime again.
Absolutely loved the house! Very clean! Diana is so sweet. We would stay here again! There's a restaurant down the street called Mary's it's delicious. It's also helpful to have a car or ATV if you are staying here to drive into town with!
Great place to stay. Awesome contrast with rest of santa Teresa. The caretaker was very helpful. Having mary's so close is important. Good yoga at indigo nearby. Enjoy bone jarring rude to capo blanco
We stayed at Pacific Azure Feb 21-26th. We had one of the best vacations that my husband and I have ever had and we contribute that to the house and location. The host was very responsive to all my emails/questions! The house itself is much prettier and roomier than the pictures. It is a very good location in the fact that we were able to visit both the Montezuma area and also drive up the pacific coast to find private beaches.
Every morning we had Howler Monkeys visit us.
Diana was very attentive and went above and beyond to help us. We had a 9 month old baby with us and she even got us a crib and toys for her! We felt very safe in the area/house, with Diana and her family and dogs that live on the property.
You do need a car for this area if you want to explore. Santa Teresa is only about 5 minute drive and the "secret beach" about 5 minutes away. One afternoon we went to the fish market and got fresh fish which was wonderful. Having a car makes all this easier.
Imagine having all the bases covered once you make the booking. This is exactly what happened on my trip. The host just took care of everything you could imagine and was a pleasure to work with. He usually got back to us immediately if not within an hour time tops. In our case he also helped us look for rental cars, arranged taxis, had an ATV waiting for us upon arrival to the house, etc etc etc! His caretaker Diana and her family were really amazing as well, they were there to help us with anything we needed; they are a truly kind family.
Regarding the area; it's perfect location. Short walk or an ATV ride away from the beach. The town of Santa Teresa and their great surfing beaches are about 10-15 min away by ATV as well.
The house is exactly as you see in the pictures. Pretty stunning and relaxing. It's a very good place to settle into on your vacation.
My only real issues with the home was with the air condition, the house never cooled much below 80F. The other was the neighbors' dogs that freely ran the street leading up to the home's driveway. They are guard dogs and did not like us passing by at night on an ATV. The good news is that we made the host aware of these issues and just like everything else, they should be taken care of by the time your stay roles around.
Overall, great house and area, I'd love to stay here again soon!

Mal Pais and Santa Teresa have long been under the 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 our stylish vacation rentals while the relaxing rustic 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 always tempted to extend their vacation.
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.
It's simple, start your day with a good cup of Costa Rican coffee... surf, explore and relax with your family and friends. It's all right here! What else does one need. : )
