About This Listing
We are situated on 1.25 acres in the heart of Mal Pais. We have open-plan living spaces allowing our guests to feel the rhythm of this quaint coastal town.
Hope you have flexible plane tickets. : )
Pacific Azure, is a contemporary villa designed and inspired by Mal Pais's tropical climate and gorgeous coastline. It blends both the indoor and outdoor environments with its use of outdoor terraces, open-plan living and high-ceilings.
Villa has a total of 4 Master bedrooms and 1 Twin bedroom and 4.5 bathrooms. A brand new swimming pool with a beautiful deck to relax and lounge at.
A modern design:
Sliding glass doors practically take up the entire west facing part of the second floor which open up to an expansive balcony overlooking the pool. Additionally the balcony has a Hot / Cold Jacuzzi, a covered dining area, lounge chairs, hammock and a BBQ for an intimate, cozy environment which is great for alfresco dining as well.
The bottom floor has a giant terrace overlooking our beautiful garden and is just a few steps from the swimming pool. It also has a hammock, a couple lounge chairs and a patio set.
Quality bed linens, beach and pool towels, daily housekeeping and specialty services such as private Yoga or Pilates classes, surf lessons, massages and private chefs can be arranged.
There's central A/C with separate controls for each floor, but for those who rather, there are ceiling fans in each one of the bedrooms.
Two fully fitted kitchens with quartz/granite counter tops. One on the bottom floor and the other is on the second floor. This gives extra convenience for those who are traveling as an extended family or a bigger group.
Pacific Azure is perfect choice for those who want a sense of privacy during their 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 our guests… during their inquiry, throughout their stay and after their checkout. I answer question within a few hours at all times. I keep in close contact with Diana our concierge during their stay. I pay close attention to our guests feedback. Enjoy our villa ; )
The great thing about our neighborhood is that the our guest are just a short walk away from the gorgeous Mal Pais beaches and tide pools.
A five minute walk from the house will get you to Mary's Restaurant, which we highly recommend for their seafood specials, wood fired pizza and an overall cozy atmosphere to hang with family and friends. There's a couple of pool tables too.
There is a small convenient store called 'Super Chico' in town where you can purchase all the basics and a surf shop called 'Feedom Riding', both are a short walk from the villa as well.
We recommend all our guest to have a means of transport so you can get to enjoy more of the area. We can suggest rental car agencies which have very competitive prices just message us. Another option is to rent ATVs. We can arrange the delivery of ATVs to the villa ahead of time so that they are here when you get here. Taxis are available in town and our concierge would be more than happy to arrange pick-ups and drop-offs.
Other Things to Note
One great perk which our guests love is our proximity to the Mal Pais fishery. You can buy fresh fish straight from the line, they will filet if for you so you can cook it or grill it at the comfort of your home. It is a bit of a longer walk approx 15 minutes or a very short drive… but you are walking along the coast so you will get some gorgeous views along the way.
Ask our concierge Diana for snorkeling gear, we have a couple brand new sets.

Adi var lätt att kommunicera med, kollade upp att vi anlänt och att allt fungerade med boendet. Diana som fanns på plats väntade oss när vi anlände och fanns till hands om något behövdes och gav oss tips och råd. Vägbeskrivningen var lätt att följa och vi hade inga problem att hitta till huset. Själva huset var mycket modernt och fint utrustat med flera lyxiga ute-platser och egen pool. Allt var rent och snyggt och luftkonditioneringen var mycket modern och gav en skön svalka. Sköna sängar med toalett och dusch i anslutning till varje sovrum gav oss skön vila och god komfort. Köken var välutrustade. Det enda man saknade var i såfall diskmaskin. Vårt sällskap bestående av två familjer på sammanlagt 11 personer hade underbara dagar i detta boende. Omgivningen var rogivande med vilda apor och fåglar i träden. Det tog ca 10 min med bil till Santa Teresa och vi var glada att ha bil eftersom de flesta i gruppen ville surfa. Man kunde gå till en mindre strand vid havet på ca 5 min-10 min där det pga klipporna inte var så lämpligt för surfing. Dock upplevde vi att det var skönt att bo en bit från St.Teresa och få uppleva nattljuden från naturen istället för den mera stökiga miljön inne i St Teresa.
Adi was incredibly helpful and responsive before and during the visit. He responded to most of my messages in less than 15 minutes, which made it very convenient to schedule all of the activities we wanted to do. He is well connected and respected in the community. While Adi doesn't live in Costa Rica full time, there is a family who lives next door to the property and does a wonderful job taking care of guests and the house. The house is true to the listing.
The location is definitely set back from the main strip (monkeys in the trees next to the house), but not inconveniently so. It's about a 7 minute drive to all the restaurants, bars, and beaches in Santa Teresa. We had a group of six guys and rented 3 ATVs for our stay. I would definitely recommend ATVs over a car (small, unpaved road). Prices should be between $50 and $60 a day depending on where you rent from. One thing that is just down the street is Mary's Restaurant, and it is wonderful. The food in general is incredibly good.
Overall this is a wonderful part of the world to see, and Pacific Azure is a great home base to explore it from.
Great house, pretty comfortable for all 10 guests and just a few steps from the beach. Only thing that miss was a pool for the kids. Lovely weekend with friends at Malpais!
My group of 11 had an absolutely wonderful time in Malpais and this gorgeous home was key to the experience. Situated on a beautiful lot on the fringes of the Copa Blanco Nature Reserve, this property offers privacy and seclusion while at the same time being within minutes of several popular beaches and cultural destinations.
Malpais to Cabuya Road, which runs close to the home, offers an excellent ATV/jogging route as it cuts directly through lush forest and rolling hillsides before spitting you out near the ocean, at which point you can travel along the coast to Montezuma. The fishing is great, the beaches and water sports were plentiful, and the people were very kind.
The home itself was immaculate and had plenty of space for entertaining, both inside and out. Communication with the host was easy, and having a local caretaker nearby was very convenient.
All in all, we had an excellent time and we highly recommend this property to the Airbnb community.
