About this listing

Absorb the charm and rhythm of Mal Pais in our modern penthouse, set back in a tropical oasis. A very accommodating setup which opens up to an expansive pool view balcony, jacuzzi, dining table, BBQ and hammock. Put your mind at ease in paradise with great amenities and remarkably reasonable rates.

Conveniently located walking distance from the alluring beaches of Mal Pais.

We are minutes from downtown for some great dining options and fun nightlife. Daily housekeeping included : )

The space

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

Sliding glass doors practically take up the entire west facing part of the house which open up to an expansive balcony overlooking the tropics, pool and tiki hut. The balcony has ample space and is perfectly suitable for alfresco dining. The outdoor hot/cold jacuzzi is great at all times of the day to relax and capture the sun, sea breeze and warmth of the tropics.

Our fully fitted kitchen has granite counter tops and all the kitchen appliances. Stove top and oven, refrigerator, microwave oven, coffee maker, toaster, juicer, even a vitamix blender. Not to mention plenty of glassware, pots & pans, silverware, etc.

Modern Comforts:
BroadBand WiFi, central A/C, daily housekeeping & quality linens. Ask for our specialty services like local guided tours, private Yoga or Pilates classes, surf lessons, massage or a private chef.

The Pacific Penthouse is perfect choice for families or a small group of friends who want a sense of privacy during their holiday vacation yet maintain proximity to the nightlife, restaurants, and the beautiful beaches of Mal Pais, Santa Teresa and Montezuma.

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.

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 and are looking for a place to stay nearby. 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
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. Oh, and some amazing pastries and desserts! 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.

We loved our stay at Pacific Azure. The GPS did misguide us a little on the initial arrival, and resulted in a pretty adventurous 4 wheel drive experience. I'd recommend studying a map a little more before trusting the GPS. Once we were able to get cell service, Diana met us near the property and guided us to the home. Traveling as a family, this place is awesome. We used the beautiful kitchen and charcoal grill to cook a beautiful meal while the kids enjoyed the pool and hot tub. This property is a short drive to the beach. Grab grocery before arrival & ask about the fish market just down the road.

Adi was a great host. I had many questions about the house area and local tours which he was a great help. He answered all my questions and helped us book some stuff to do while we were there. Also Diana was very nice and met us when we arrived. She was also very helpful with the house and the maps of the area. We had a great trip!

Malpais, Costa RicaJoined in August 2012

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 : )
