Interaction with Guests
We are always available via email for anything and everything. We live full time in Los Angeles. Vicente, our caretaker is always available in person. He speaks English and Spanish and has lived in Mal Pais for the last 15 years.
The Mal Pais, Santa Teresa, Playa Carmen & Playa Hermosa area/villages are in our opinion the greatest place in all of Costa Rica! Might as well be the same town. It's roughly 6km of flat dirt road between all of them. You can easily get around by car, bicycle, ATV, taxi or walk the beach. Lots to see and explore. Great international cuisine. World Class beaches and the town feels rustic and international. Its an amazing place to visit! The nature and wildlife are spectacular!
You can rent a car, bicycles, ATV's, taxis, or walk the beach to get around town.
No Smoking indoors.
Will consider Pets.
We had an amazing experience at Casa Celeste. The house and property are breathtaking and having Vicente there to answer any and all questions is priceless. The house is clean, well kept, and the location is unbeatable. We loved the privacy and being able to enjoy the beach with no one else around. Mal Pais and Santa Teresa are perfect surf towns. We will definitely be back!!!! Thank you so much
Beautiful!!! Right by a gorgeous beach (slabs of beautiful rock with tide pools and sand too). Howler monkeys at night. Awesome cat staying there (actually the sweetest cat ever). Vicente is really sweet and built us a huge bonfire on the beach. Mal Pais is great too. Lots of wild life in a chill surfing town.
Great place, we are so thankful with the careertake and Tan since our vacations were awesome.
Clear communication, good price and an awesome place.
My family and I had a reunion this past Easter weekend and we chose to stay at Casa Celeste. The place was perfect! There was plenty of outdoor space, right on the beach and an outdoor living room complete with hammocks, swing chairs, couches and lounge chairs. The yard is huge and nicely landscaped, with a clear path to the sand. It felt safe and warm and was the perfect combination of being serene and still close to town.
Vicente, was the best! We had a car battery issue and he was there within minutes with cables. He lit a fire for us each night and is just the sweetest guy. I can see now why Diana says he is part of the family.
Ran and Diana, thank you so much for making our family weekend unforgettable. Your place was exactly what I was hoping for and more.
I hope to stay there the next time I am in town!
The beach house was in a lovely spot very close to the beach as promised. Rans wife was helpful when we called and the caretaker was very accessible, helpful and friendly. The house was very well placed for great restaurants too.
Ran and Dianna were extremely helpful in our searching out the perfect place to stay in Costa Rica! It was our first trip and they alleviated a ton of concerns by giving us a helpful information on travel , dining, excursions and a whole lot more! The place was even more pleasant than described. We loved the area completely- the wildlife (monkeys and Iguanas) and the whole vibe of the Santa Teresa / Mal Pais area was Awesome!! I highly recommend staying at Casa Celeste if you want a quite getaway, that's close enough to a lot of fun activities.
But, the best thing of all...Vincente! He is the caretaker at Casa Celeste that availed himself to us as a knowledgeable concierge...he's amazing! Great guy, very fun and helpful. He will point you to the best places for recreation, and get you hooked up with surfing, zip-lining, hiking, great waterfalls, volcano excursions, horse back riding , or whatever your into. He even prepared a local dish for us for breakfast that was delicious. Go here, you won't regret it!
The experience that we had at Casa Celeste far exceeded our dreams. The privacy, the safety knowing that Vicente is right at hand to take care of any of our needs and hold a loving cared for space was incredible.
The home itself on the beachfront side of the road provides a truly magical jungle meets ocean experience. Comfortable and well appointed home with any of your needs met. Comfortable beds, air conditioning for a cooler sleep, great showers, spacious.
The grounds are magical. Filled with tropical plants, flowers, giant jungle size trees. Listening to the roar of the waves on the shore to the howler monkeys in the trees absolutely natural experience.
What makes this home extra special in my opinion is the fact that it is on the south side of town. The road is way less traveled and less loud. The more locals and natural beauty is on the side of town and it adds to the overall experience.
Long walks in the beach right in front of the house, walk into town or the other direction into endless beaches small coves, tide pools, secret beaches all for your explorations. Incredible for families with kids too.
Overall we cannot wait to return to Casa Celeste it was a fantastic vacation.
About the Host, Ran
Casa Celeste is a beautiful beach house steps from the sand. Staying at Casa Celeste is like staying at your own nature park. Tropical birds, monkeys, horses, iguanas, butterflies, and sometimes even whales breaching can all be seen from the covered outdoor veranda. It's truly paradise!
Thank you for your consideration. We look forward to meeting you.
