We stayed at Casa Makasi for seven days in June 2017 and had an amazing time! There were seven of us staying there (three couples and one additional friend). It is very spacious – plenty of room for seven people. We never felt like we were on top of each other. It is truly a million dollar view of the ocean. The cleaning and support staff were very helpful and nice. We did a lot of cooking in the well-equipped kitchen. We saw howler monkeys and white-faced capuchins from the villa every other day! The pool is clean and beautiful; we were in it every day, multiple times a day. It was also very easy (and fun!) to get into the town of Mal Pais / Santa Teresa. There was a sizeable storm (thunder/lightning/rain/wind) while we were there which knocked out the power (which also meant that we didn’t have water). The power outage lasted from around 3am until after 7pm, so 16 hours total, which is unusually long. Brett, the Casa Masaki concierge, was nice enough to meet us and give us some flashlights, candles, and cold beer before it got dark out. We appreciated the gesture! He also called the power company and gave us updates (to the best of his knowledge) on when the power would come back on. Overall, this villa is amazing value. The view, the untouched jungle, and the beautiful, comfortable villa make for an unforgettable trip.

This place is amazing, we used it to have a team building with our group from work and had everything we needed for it. Lila was always available and she is a great host. The house is just what you see in the pictures, can't go wrong with this place. Thank you Lila for hosting us at your place, we will be back.

Lila's place is beautiful with one of the best panoramic ocean views I have ever seen. It is close enough to all of the restaurants and surf but far enough away to be a very peaceful getaway. I would highly recommend staying at Lila's if you are visiting Mal Pais or Santa Teresa!

What a beautiful place! I stayed with a group of 7, and the experience was beyond what any of us had expected. The house itself is stunning: a well-maintained, bright, and spacious home perched on the edge of the hill overlooking the beach. We love to cook, and the kitchen was well-equipped and comfortable for preparing big dinners. We actually loved the house so much that we spent the majority of our time lounging in the pool, cooking, and just enjoying the fresh air. As far as getting around town: Lila and Brett made things easy by helping to arrange transportation. We ended up renting ATVs and a car for longer day trips. On the nights that we didn't want to cook, Jasmin prepared delicious local meals. Overall, a great experience! We can't wait to go back!

We had a great stay at Lila's place. The outdoor space and the view was the highlight of the house! Lila was very helpful in organizing groceries and tours for us. We will be back!

I have no words to express what this place is all about. My family and I had the most amazing week ever and I am so happy we stayed at Lila's place. The house is a dream and you won't find any other one like this. Everything was perfect, the rooms, cleanliness, the pool is from another world, a very spacious living room and the dining table was ideal for family meals. Lila as great since the moment I booked, during the stay and even after we left. Always available even from Europe (as she wasn't in Costa Rica during that week). Jasmin (you can call her an Angel) was more than somebody who cleans and takes care of the house. She helped us in anything we asked and even offered her doctor for my relative who had a minor accident. Lila is the luckiest one by having such a nice lady who can make your stay even more enjoyable. We rented 3 ATV's and a 4x4 as you may have some trouble getting up the hill. On behalf of my entire family and friends I want to say that this place is unreal, unbelievable and you'll never regret booking it. Thanks Lila and Jasmin for all you did. See you next year for sure!

Not only was the villa beautiful, but Lila was extremely accomodating. She made sure we had everything we needed taken care of for us - she planned for a taxi to pick up our party from Liberia airport, organized ATV rentals for us, planned a ziplining adventure and surf lessons for our group, and was very prompt in replying to any of our questions. Further, she gave us tips and information on events going on in town that we'd be interested in. In short, Lila made our trip a pleasure and we would definitely recommend staying at her villa to anyone interested in spending time in Mal Pais.

After living in Belgium for 17 years, I traveled to Costa Rica and fell in love with the enchanting nature this country has to offer, the people and pura vida, the the beautiful ocean and the joy of surfing it's precious waves. I decided to create a new life for myself and moved here in 2009. A couple years later I built this beautiful home that I now rent to travelers from around the world. I hope to be able to host you one day and share this spot in paradise with you.
