The Space

Pacific Azure, is a contemporary 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house located in the quaint little beach town of Mal Pais, Costa Rica... surrounded by lush tropical jungle, with minimalist elegance, light and space.

A modern design allows for ample light and space, with glass sliding doors practically taking up the entire west facing part of the house. There are 2 spacious master bedrooms with their own private bathroom and 1 cozy twin bedroom on the third floor. Quality bed linens and towels are provided.

There's central A/C and ceiling fans in each one of the bedrooms as well.

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

The penthouse benefits from a big West facing balcony that has an open air hot/cold Jacuzzi, a big BBQ pit, lounge chairs, hammock and a beautiful dining table.

The Pacific Penthouse is perfect choice for those 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.

Guest Access

Our property is 1.25 acres of tropical jungle. Feel free to roam about and enjoy the peaceful sounds of the ocean and tropics.

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 Neighborhood

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.

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. They'll even filet it for you.

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.

  • 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!
