Tourists who passed by this house have said literally that is the most beautiful house they have ever been.
From couples, looking for the perfect romantic trip, to friends surfing, just relaxing at the beach or enjoying night life.
And families will have the best time ever, as there is playground for children, swimming pool at the hotel, the beach is just in front the house, so they will never stop playing, and the parents can be watching them just from the balcony.
Swimming pool, beach lounge, bar, parking
From Dec 20, 2015 - Jan 05, 2016 the minimum stay is 7 nights.
The villa is pretty much as it looks: it is cosy, everything is in good condition and it accommodates 3-4 people nicely. Cleaning services did their job all days but one.
Location-wise is great, right in front of the beach and just a few minutes walk from one of the "hubs" in Santa Teresa.
Overall we enjoyed our time at the villa
On a less positive note, a couple of things to highlight. The owner was not as reaponsive as we would have liked: she was not reachable when we arrived and we struggled a bit to find the place. In addition, it took her 3 days to send someone to fix the internet connection (although it was not ultimately possible due to technical issues and, as a result, we had NO inet access for the entire week, which was quite annoying). Lastly, someone stole a pair of running shoes left at the porch overnight (we did not have any safety concerns at all otherwise).
Pia and Pini were great hosts. They were easy to communicate with and the villa was exactly as described. If your idea of a Costa Rican vacation is to enjoy a modern, yet rustic villa so close to the beach that you can hear the waves breaking as you are enjoying breakfast on a huge and tastefully decorated front yard, then Pia's villa is for you. We did not want to leave and coming back from our daily adventures felt like coming home. Pura Vida indeed!
We had an amazing stay!! The house is absolutely adorable, our perfect dream beach house. With a massive backyard we spent most of our time at the beach or on the hammocks. The house was clean and the beds so comfortable. The bathroom may have been the best part, with an enclosed/outdoor shower covered by palm trees. The people in mal Pais were so nice! Make sure to try the bakery and pasta basta (mojitos were to die for). The supermarkets are within walking distance. Our favorite part of the day was going out to the beach before sunset and watching the surfers catch some waves. Mal Pais was the perfect location to get away from mainstream society and be surrounded by kind people, ocean, and small town lifestyle. We defiantly plan on coming back again!! Pia sent a made every day to keep the house clean and she was available to help us with our every need.
We had a great stay, 9/10 points.
The beach front veranda is superb and the same holds true for the location on maybe the best beach in the country. I already recommended it to friends and would go again anytime.
Some things to add, also w. respect to the previous evaluations
- The kitchen is now fully equipped, also with basic ingredients like salt, oil, drinking water, and coffee
- There is a modern gas grill outside
- The pool belongs to the Luz de Vida bungalows next door but you can use it.
Not giving 10/10 because the dorm rooms don't cool down at night (no AC).
If you need a good surf instructur ask for a guy called Ran. Habanero restaurant serves great dinner on the beach and is just 2 minutes away.
An amazing Villa!
I would rent this villa again in a heartbeat. It's right on the beach. You can see & hear the ocean all the time. A lovely sound to fall asleep/wake up to. It's on a big lot so you get your own outdoor space to yourself.
Our host Pia was very helpful & friendly.
We found that making our own food most of the time helped us stick to our travel budget. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is a BBQ. But if you don't feel like cooking, the restaurant is right next door and makes great food.
Surfers, look no further. This is the place to be. One of the best beach break spots is seconds from your door. Waves are constant. At sunset the really good surfers head out and put on a show as the sun dips below the horizon. Every single night was an amazing sunset.
We loved this house! It was nearly perfect for our family with three children. The community is very friendly, the live music from the restaurant next door is mellow and fun, the nearby supermarket was as promised, close by. The kitchen provides the basic cooking and eating necessities (although does not have any basic cooking supplies like we have had in other rentals i.e. salt, pepper, oil). The house is in need of some TLC (the sink clogged daily), but, honestly, the rustic-ness of the house adds to the charm. The kids love the look of the wood interior and the open wall feel. The BEAUITFUL location on the sand and hammocks out front are the HUGE seller for this house and makes any small imperfections easily unnoticeable.. I ALWAYS felt 100% safe and comfortable. My children LOVED playing under the coconut tress and in the “tide pools” on the beach. Pia was very nice, easy to work with, easy to get in contact with, and had all the information that I needed.
We will be re-renting this house for sure!!
