Absorb the charm and rhythm of Mal Pais in our modern penthouse, set back in a tropical oasis. A cozy indoor setup which opens up to a pool view balcony with jacuzzi and plenty of room to spread out, relax and dine. Put your mind at ease on your next vacation to paradise with our excellent amenities, attention to detail and great rates.

Located walking distance from the beautiful beaches of Mal Pais.

Minutes from downtown for great dining options and fun nightlife. 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.

A beautiful home surrounded by lush jungle! The house is very warm and cozy with a fully equipped kitchen! The private pool was a great way to relax at night and during the day. The host was extremely accommodating when we booked last minute when we had extra family coming in and needed a nice place. Short walking distance to beach is a bonus! Highly recommended this place!

Great great place... the house have everything you need and you can feel it like home. The location is so quiet, you can hear the monkeys on the back of the property, the nature is great, the near beach is great, you can visit Santa Teresa and found all the groceries you need. You can found great restaurants, coffeshops and more :)... so basically is great place for explore Costa Rica and have a great time. I hope we can return soon :) PD: at the time we visit the property we didn't have tv on the house, but Netflix helped us to fix the problem :)

We adored our stay at Pacific Azure. It was the best place we have stayed in Costa Rica. It is an amazing feeling to be in the midst of the jungle and at the same time in a very nice penthouse. The site is wonderful and very calm. What I miss the most is waking up early in the morning to the sounds of nature and the jungle (birds, howler monkeys). I also miss seeing iguanas passing by on our way to the pool. Santa Teresa is a charming town close by where you can go with very nice beach, restaurants and shops. Thanks to Diana and her family who were more than welcoming and very dedicated to making sure we felt at home. We would definitely come back! We loved it!

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.

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 : )
