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.
A beautiful apartment with everything you need. Sharon is helpful with arranging taxi's and with any questions you may have throughout your stay. The location is out of town a bit so it is a peaceful sleep, no bars or loud music to keep you up. About a minute down the road and you'll be at a tide pool and if you continue to walk about 10-15 minutes down the beach you'll get to playa carmen where there are no rocks so you can swim in the ocean and also rent surf boards, go to a restaurant, bank, shopping etc. If you want to be right in the middle of the action without having to walk much this isn't the place for you, but if you don't mind being secluded a little you'll love it. The apartment really is perfect, it's very open concept and full of fresh air. We stayed for almost three weeks and didn't want to leave. If you love dogs it's a bonus to have two friendly pups to greet you every time you come home.
Great stay at a lovely apartment just a few minutes walk to the beach. Sharon was so kind to stock our fridge with a few breakfast essentials for our first morning and provided information on routes and the area and also gave us our privacy and space to just enjoy the apartment. Would definitely stay here again if we were in the area!
I absolutely loved staying at Sharon's apartment. It is so much more then an apartment. First off Sharon is so lovely. So easy to communicate with, open, friendly and so available to help in anyway. She fully stocked my fridge with all the essentials so thoughtful.
The second floor apartment was so perfect. Open, airy, cozy, comfortable bed, large covered outdoor living room, kitchen that overlooked the garden/jungle where i felt so part if the natural beauty. Often times i would either hang out in the hammock or on the futon couch and listen to the birds, howler monkey's,and horses. Only steps to the beach and a completely wide open vacant beaches once there.
Mal Pais is a truly special place to visit and when I return this will be my first place of choice to stay once again.
All in all a perfect experience. I highly recommend staying here with Sharon.
We had a great stay at Sharons place! Lucky us, there where some free days after us, so Sharon allowed us to stay longer, than we planned before - and believe me: you wanna stay longer!
The apartment is perfect! The kitchen has everything you need, the whole apartment is comfy and clean it's totally cosy. The dogs and the little Kitty where the * on it.
Thanks Sharon! It was a pleasure meeting you!
We had a very nice stay and recommend. It was quiet, peaceful and Sharon was intuitive with activities that fit us with our timeframe. the place is modest and homey. We did not want to leave so soon.
We had an amaizing time at Sharons place, she was very warm and welcoming and always happy to help with whatever we were in need of. The appartment was well situated and nicely decorated. Many thanks!
Lugar muy agradable. Perfecto para vivir el lugar a su propio ritmo y fuera de las corrientes turistas. Deja huella
This place was amazing!! Sharon was really nice and welcoming, she also helped us renting a cuad on his friend shop. She also told us some tips while we were outside driving the cuad. Although on the post doesn't said anything about breakfast, she had a little fridge with some eggs, milk, coffee and some others things for us.
The place was great and the host was wonderful... Highly recommended! =D
After spending a week with Sharon, we will try and be as objective as possible in our review but its hard not to gush about our best host and house on all Airbnb experiences in costa rica.
We were welcomed by her three wonderful puppies and nice stiff drink which was amazing after a super long drive. Our apartment was very beautifully furnished with gallery quality paintings throughout, fresh linen and food already in the fridge.
She steered us to the best restaurants, sodas and foods joints while keeping our budget in mind. She even called up the places to make sure they are open before we took a long drive or walk to get there.
She recommended the best and most secluded beautiful beaches in town. She was the friendliest and the most hospitable host we have ever had. We would love to be in touch with her through the years.
She even had us for dinner with a bunch of her friends and it was by far the best meal we had on our entire trip.
We only have good things to say, she went above and beyond every single time while we were there!
Totally awesome place. We never wanted to leave! It's a bit off the main strip but also within reach of everything you need (restaurants, banks, surfboard rental, etc)
Sharon is also amazingly hospitable. She's totally open to setting anything up for you during your stay. And her puppies are the cutest!!!
Thank you, Sharon! We miss you already!
