The penthouse, is a contemporary 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom cozy home located in the quaint little beach town of Mal Pais, Costa Rica.

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.
The great thing about our location is that we are in the heart of the little fishing village of Mal Pais and the most important thing is just a short walk away. The beach! In fact it's more like a 10 minute walk. Even a shorter walk is Mary's Restaurant, which we highly recommend for great local seafood, daily farm to table specials and wood fired pizza. An overall fun atmosphere to hang with family and friends and shoot some pool. There is also a small convenient store in town called Super Chico, which is right around the corner.
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 property ahead of time so that they are here when you arrive or shortly after. Taxis are available in town and our concierge would be more than happy to arrange pick-ups and drop-offs.
Other things to note
The penthouse has another apartment on the ground floor. I like to mention that to our guests in the case they have more family or friends that are traveling with them looking for a place to stay. If you are traveling solo and want to ensure full privacy I understand, just let me know and I'd be more than happy to block the dates on the calendar for the unit below.
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 here from the local fisherman, they will filet if for you 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. I work closely with a local tour operator which takes our guests to some amazing places. 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 service for those who really want to kick back. From a two course meal to a 4-5 course meal, sushi, BBQs to a simple typical Costa Rican breakfast. Message us your preferences.
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.
It's simple, start your day with a good cup of excellent Costa Rican coffee... surf, explore and relax with your family and friends. It's all right here! What else does one need. Welcome to paradise : )
