We stayed at Pacific Azure Feb 21-26th. We had one of the best vacations that my husband and I have ever had and we contribute that to the house and location. The host was very responsive to all my emails/questions! The house itself is much prettier and roomier than the pictures. It is a very good location in the fact that we were able to visit both the Montezuma area and also drive up the pacific coast to find private beaches.
Every morning we had Howler Monkeys visit us.
Diana was very attentive and went above and beyond to help us. We had a 9 month old baby with us and she even got us a crib and toys for her! We felt very safe in the area/house, with Diana and her family and dogs that live on the property.
You do need a car for this area if you want to explore. Santa Teresa is only about 5 minute drive and the "secret beach" about 5 minutes away. One afternoon we went to the fish market and got fresh fish which was wonderful. Having a car makes all this easier.
This apartment was fabulous. Clean and modern, and felt very safe. Our hosts were very helpful and gave us a lot of suggestions and help when we needed to navigate the local area.
The local area is great - beautiful beaches with snorkel/surf rental equipment nearby, and a shop and restaurant also very near within walking distance.
A couple of small tips - The locals' idea of distance is different from ours'. 100m was actually more like 500m (this happened on a few occasions), and we were told that the Montezouma waterfall had a wide open trail, when it was actually a jungle, and you had to walk on rocks in the river - nothing wide and open about it! This isn't a reflection on this place or the hosts - it was terrific, and the host descriptions were accurate! But if you're not able bodied, or have small children, make extra sure you know what you're getting yourself into!
Fabulous, Clean modern home. Enjoyed our stay. The location was great. Diana and her family were awesome and helped us with any questions we had. Cannot say enough about the home, area and location. Will be back!!! Thanks so much for answering all the questions and getting back to us always immediately. Everyone needs to check this place out!!!!
Imagine having all the bases covered once you make the booking. This is exactly what happened on my trip. The host just took care of everything you could imagine and was a pleasure to work with. He usually got back to us immediately if not within an hour time tops. In our case he also helped us look for rental cars, arranged taxis, had an ATV waiting for us upon arrival to the house, etc etc etc! His caretaker Diana and her family were really amazing as well, they were there to help us with anything we needed; they are a truly kind family.
Regarding the area; it's perfect location. Short walk or an ATV ride away from the beach. The town of Santa Teresa and their great surfing beaches are about 10-15 min away by ATV as well.
The house is exactly as you see in the pictures. Pretty stunning and relaxing. It's a very good place to settle into on your vacation.
My only real issues with the home was with the air condition, the house never cooled much below 80F. The other was the neighbors' dogs that freely ran the street leading up to the home's driveway. They are guard dogs and did not like us passing by at night on an ATV. The good news is that we made the host aware of these issues and just like everything else, they should be taken care of by the time your stay roles around.
Overall, great house and area, I'd love to stay here again soon!
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.
Where do I start ?
Perfect paradise is the fastest and most accurate way of describing this house and where its located!
Host- the best I had
Directions in Costa Rica are difficult but NOT in this case!
The house looks much better then the photos, the host was extremely friendly and helpful
I will recommend this house over any hotel/house in Santa Teresa/Malpais.
We were very sad leaving and will be back there again as soon as we can.
We miss this place already...

A great house to stay in, lovley balcony with a lot of space to sit on. And a grill that makes it even better. A real great place to relax on, and always a person that that can help you to fix cabs etc.
Seriously , this place is amazing! The property looks just like the pictures, and everyone was so helpful. The washing machine was also a blessing because we were at the end of our trip, and clean clothes were very welcome. The house is a little ways from the city center, but the quiet and seclusion were amazing. Seriously, stay here if you ever find yourself in Mal Pais!
Our stay at Pacific Azure Suite was very enjoyable - communication from the start was responded to promptly, we received good directions on how to get there and Diana met us at the property to explain how everything worked and items around town.
The flat looks exactly as it does in the pictures - everything is brand new, each of the bedrooms have an ensuite, the kitchen has pots/pans and utensils and there is a washer and dryer as well. There is a patio with table and chairs to enjoy the outdoors and it is a short walk from the property to the local beaches. The garden is also very lush and lovely, you feel as though you are really close to the rainforest and we had a visit from a monkey each afternoon which added to the charm.
We had a car while we stayed here and that made it easier - there is a restaurant and small grocery store walking distance around the corner but to readily get there and then access the local area, a car is advisable.
We had a fabulous vacation with our family at Pacific Azure, the property is amazing as it is settled in the beautiful village of mal Pais, Diana and her fa
mily are truly amazing at making sure everything was perfect, from answering our questions, arranging cabs, and
even letting us borrow stuff from their home. Mal Pais and the surrounding area are definitely a little piece of paradise, offering many things to do. Our group took part in fishing, surfing, atving,hiking, zip lining, horseback riding, and also the local restaurant Mary's. A truly memorable vacation and I would highly recommend Pacific Azure to everyone
This place is top notch. Think high end luxury in the middle of the Costa Rican jungle, just a short walk to the beach. The hosts are wonderful people and they work hard to make sure no detail is overlooked--from the design and comfort of the home to providing guidance and important information about the area. Surf, shops, restaurants, and a variety of tours are all available nearby. Mal Pais has a great small-town/beach-town vibe. The monkeys, iguanas, birds, and tropical gardens also make this place stand out as a first-rate destination. Enjoy!!!
I stayed there for over two months, it almost broke my heart heart to leave. The location is absolutely perfect. You are close enough to the shops and restaurants but the only noise you really hear are the howler monkeys. The owner and the caretakers are really amazing people, they are very helpful and definitely make you feel like it is your home !
Pacific Azure- doesn't get much better! After spending time on the beach this is the best place to come back to, relax and enjoy nature. With good restaurants, markets, surf and live music all nearby, Pacific Azure is a must stay at. I also recommend going down to the fishing village (right down the road)and get some fresh fish from the boats, or better, go on a fishing tour :)
