Beautiful apartment for rent in Mal Pais/Santa Teresa Costa Rica. Located on the beach side and less than a minute walk to the ocean. Mangrove and tide pools in front. The apartment has it's own private entrance from the main house downstairs. It consists of one open plan bedroom with double bed, full bathroom, large covered terrace/balcony with seating area and sofa bed, hammock and full kitchen. Cable Internet/WIFI and hot water.
The house is located in a quiet part of town, but is only a short walk to Playa Carmen where there are great surf breaks, banks, stores, bars and restaurants.
Perfect for a couple looking for a romantic get away, or for anyone looking for somewhere quiet and relaxing to stay while still being close to everything.

This was our second time staying at this airbnb and it was just as lovely as before. The place is clean, quiet, and close to town, restaurants, and incredible beaches and tidepools. Upon our arrival Sharon had left a few essentials in the fridge for us (including two cold beers - very important.) Sharon is very friendly and helpful which made our stay very enjoyable. We had a great time; I would strongly recommend staying here!
This place was wonderful and perfect for us. It's a short walk to the beach and to the amazing little town. Mosquitos were not bad here. We wish it had AC but enjoyed the little kitchen, great host, etc.
Sharon's house was the perfect place to end our road trip around Costa Rica. She was a kind and welcoming host, and even let us arrive a couple hours early on our first day. The room was cleaned, and though the roof undergoing improvement, it was well-patched and inconspicuous during our stay. The whole house reflected careful choices in design and function, and really feels like a flat all to yourself.
She greeted us with some pantry staples and had great advice for local activities and eats. We ended up spending most of our time relaxing at the apartment, it was a breeze to cook in the outdoor kitchen and relax on the hammock or comfy couch and listen to the afternoon rain. Sleeping was nice and cool as the bedroom doors open out onto the patio. Just down the road are warm tidepools that fill up enough for a soak, and the local horses, howler monkeys, and iguanas offer great company. The town of Santa Teresa is a three minute ride from this house, just off the main road in Mal Pais. It feels safe, and is protected by two sweet and friendly dogs.
Great place! Sharon was awesome, very helpful and always available. Felt very safe and welcome here. Two great pups on the property as well - so cute! Great living space to chill at home when it got too hot. About a five minute walk down to the beach, a little rocky but you can find some nice little whirlpools in around here and very private. And if you walk ten minutes further down you are at the really nice sandy beaches. About a 5-10min drive into the core of Santa Teresa where there are lots of amazing restaurants and shops to visit. Lots of yoga available there! Banana Beach is a fun hangout spot!
Our trip to Mal Pais was amazing! Sharon is kind and thoughtful. She even checked up on us one night when we were out late to make sure we were okay. That was such a kind gesture! Also, she stocked our fridge with breakfast items. The apartment was clean and had everything you needed. It's a quick walk to an amazing beach with natural pools you could sit in. Also the apartment is in the middle of the centers of two towns, Mal Pais and Santa Teresa. You could walk to either but renting an ATV is a good idea!
WOW...this place is amazing. Each morning you wake up by the sound of (email hidden)rds, monkeys, waves of the ocean which is 2 minutes walk away.
The appartement is clean and even after 3 days comes somebody to keep it clean.
Sharon is a great host, who has good recommendations, where to go if you want to go out for dinner or which beaches to visit.
We find bread, butter and even some bears in the fridge....Thanks for it :-)
We had 5 great days in Malpais and would recommend everybody Sharon place which is perfectly and lovely (email hidden)l fixed together.
Thank you Sharon that you allowed us to join your "paradies".
All the best for future
Sharon is an incredible host and her place is beautiful. When we arrived, the place was immaculate and there were treats like artisan bread, eggs, and fresh coffee in the fridge. She went out of her way to give us insider tips on the region such as what beaches to visit, restaurants to eat at, and routes to take.
