There's two very spacious bedrooms one with a king size bed, the second bedroom has a queen size bed and a twin, both have a private bathroom and ample closet space. The third bedroom has a queen size bed. All beds have top quality premium linens, for a dreamy sleeping experience. Beach and pool towels are provided and daily housekeeping (optional) is included with your stay.

We have a broadband fiber optic network at 50 Mbps, the WiFi extends all the way to the pool area. A very stable WiFi connection, excellent for remote work, video conferencing, etc. Smart home features include, Nest climate control for the central A/C and a Nest smoke and carbon monoxide detector.

We have a super stylish and fully fitted kitchen, with beautiful teach wood cabinets. If you like cooking you are going to love our setup.

A 5-burner gas range, oven, coffee maker, coffee bean grinder, electric kettle, blender, microwave and toaster oven. We have a 5-gallon purified water dispenser and we provide free weekly refills.

The kitchen opens up to a spacious covered terrace, which you'll find a seven piece patio set, perfect for your morning coffee, breakfast or a dinner setup.

Hang in one of the hammocks on the terrace or just walk over to the pool to cool off and relax to the sound of the tropics and the nearby surf. Don't be surprised when you see the cute local Howler Monkey family hanging out in our trees.

The great thing about our pool deck is it's humungous tiki hut, which throws a perfect shade over the pool's shallows so you can lounge during the warmest hours of the day. You'll also find a few hammocks, lounge chairs, gas grill, mini bar and a large outdoor dining table next to the pool and under the tiki hut.

What makes our location ideal is the fact that you're within a short walk to the beautiful beaches and tide pools of Mal Pais. Our location is a short drive to downtown where you'll find excellent dining options, some fun nightlife and little boutiques for shopping.

Where you’ll be

Malpais, Puntarenas, Costa Rica

Our neighborhood is essentially the little town of Mal Pais. Mal Pais practically hugs the coastline so you can just take a walk from the house to town and explore the gorgeous coastline. On low tide you will find some amazing tide pools.

Hands down one of the most beautiful beaches in Mal Pais and Santa Teresa is just 5 minutes from our property. It's called Playa Cuevas and it's a great beach to hangout at as it has plenty spots with shade. In fact if you have snorkeling gear there's a really nice spot right off the beach where you can check the marine life along the reef.

We have Super Chico an excellent grocery / liquor store that is a 10 minute walk at most from the house. Hours of operation are from 8AM - 8PM, 7 days a week. They also have a nice selection of veggies and fruits. Wine, beer, liquor and ice are available as well.

La Doña Teresa Pizzeria, is just around the corner from the property (a 5 minute walk). It has excellent wood fired pizza, delicious empanadas, pasta and a full bar. Another really good spot to get a bite to eat is right next to the pizzeria, called Tierra Mar. The owner prepares some very delicious Costa Rican typical food.

The Mal Pais Canopy / Zip-line tour is a 5 minute drive from the property and I highly recommend our guests to zip line along it's 11 platforms through the Mal Pais Jungle. Ask us to book your tour in advance they have a 9am, 11am and 3pm tour. Super fun for all ages!

One of the nicest things about our neighborhood is the Mal Pais Fishery, which is just down the road, it's a 3 drive or a 10 minute walk. You can head over there and buy fresh fish right off the line from the local fisherman. You can buy the fish whole or they'll filet it for you right on the spot. The types of fish to expect; Snapper, Grouper, Yellow-fin Tuna, Mahi, Amber Jack, Snook and Sea Bass.

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. All our properties are very special and they all have something unique to offer. Relax in comfort and take in the tropical surroundings while you contemplate your next move in paradise.

I enjoy watching people fall in love with Mal Pais, the locals, the food 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 25 years in Costa Rica. My family and some of my most amazing friends live just around the corner.

If this is a surf trip or someone in your group is a surfer you're in for a pleasant surprise. This is one of the most consistent stretches of coastline along the Pacific coast of Costa Rica. The variety of sandbars and reefs makes Mal Pais and Santa Teresa a surfers paradise. Same goes for those who enjoy the outdoors and adventure tours this place is simply magical.

Start your day with a fresh brew of excellent Costa Rican coffee, surf, explore the nearby beaches, tide pools and waterfalls or just relax poolside with family and friends. Welcome to paradise : )
