The space

Our contemporary villa is 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.

The villa has a total of 4 Master bedrooms, 1 Single bedroom and 4.5 bathrooms. An amazing pool deck, a deep blue swimming pool with a tropical tiki hut that throws enough shade over the pool to make it an absolute perfect relaxing experience. Chill in one of the hammocks while you hear the sound of the tropics and the surf... welcome to dreamland!

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 an big terrace which overlooks our beautiful garden and is just a few steps from the swimming pool. It also has a hammock, a couple lounge chairs and a 6 top dining set.

Modern Comforts:
Quality bed linens, beach & 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, every bedroom room has a ceiling fan as well.

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 the inquiry and booking process and throughout their stay. I answer questions within a few hours at all times. I keep in close contact with Diana our concierge during their stay and pay close attention to our guests feedback. Enjoy our villa : )

The neighborhood

The great thing about our neighborhood is that we are in the heart of Mal Pais which is a very peaceful and quiet little fishing town. You are just a short walk from the gorgeous Mal Pais beaches and tide pools, yet a quick drive to downtown for some awesome dining options and fun nightlife.

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.

Getting around

I recommend all our guest to have a means of transport so you can get to see and enjoy more of the area. I can assist in getting our guests a rental car from a compact to full size SUVs and minivans for larger groups as well. Another option is to rent ATVs. I 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 if needed.

Other things to note

Fish Straight From the Line!
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. Take the hassle out of planning local activities and tours, I can help you put together an itinerary of fun activities. There are plenty of super fun kid friendly tours as well. 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 our guests, if it's a family with kids, couples or a group of friends. Needless to say he knows the area like the back of his hand. Some of the tours our guests have been on include off road ATV tours, Montezuma waterfall tours, snorkeling off Tortuga Island, horseback riding, surf lessons, stand up paddle board tours, kayaking, hiking the Cabo Blanco national park, the Mal Pais zip line and both inshore and offshore fishing tours as well.

Private Chef
Private chef services available for those who really to take their vacation experience a notch higher. From a two course meal to a 4-5 course meal, sushi, BBQs to a simple typical Costa Rican breakfast. 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.

We Got a Honeymoon Suite!
We also have an additional honeymoon suite on the property to accommodate couples. Let us know if you want to rent out this additional unit during your stay. This is a separate unit from the villa and is very private.

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.

It's simple, start your day with a good cup of excellent Costa Rican coffee... surf, explore and relax with your family and friends. It's all right here! What else does one need. Welcome to paradise : )
