About owner/property manager
Like so many, my husband and I have searched for that special place, where the problems of the world seem far away. This was what we found. We feel so blessed to have the ability to experience the magic of this home, and share it with others.
owner/property manager purchased this Villa in 2016
Why owner/property manager chose Malpais
While at the villa, it feels like only you and the great big ocean exist, but all the amenities of the town are easily accessible.
What makes this Villa unique
Before buying this home, I stayed at many homes and hotel in the Santa Teresa/Malpais area, and this one is really special. The way it allows you to interact with the magical enviornment around you.

Amazing place with amazing view. Exceeded our expectations. Spacious house with great covered outdoor area. Great location close to everything but not in the middle of it.
The best view in town
We had an absolutely amazing time in Mal Pais and at our hilltop villa! Soraya made everything so special and easy setting up our SUP, quad, fishing, massages and snorkel trips as well as organizing a chef and dinner reservations- we couldn't have done it w/o her! She even delivered a hammer and offered to get groceries for us! Our favorite restaurant was Koji, but wished we would have booked a chef for many more meals- it was just such a treat to hang out at our house, and have cocktails delivered (from Driftwood). Aaron was great and made our birthday special with candles, singing and conversation (we never made it to his restaurant Cevicheria but am guessing it's great), we also heard Ty? is the best chef in town. The other highlights were fishing and SUP, the SUP girls were so nice and fun (Eden and Lucy). The sunset was unbelievable. And Montezuma Falls! And the massages- the best I've had! And the sunsets! And the mojitos! And the double-headed shower! And the monkeys!
I think the only things we would have changed, would be to organize a flight from Liberia to Mal Pais, the drive in after a long light in the dark was very very long and we arrived hungry and tired. Owner might want to look into new towels, not sure if it was the way they were dried but most of the towels were hard and crispy. Mary's was also a disappointment, we brought our fresh caught fish there and it wasn't prepared very well (sides were yummy tho!)-- I don't mean to focus on the negatives (there were very few!) just wanted to call them out for management and future visitors! Mal Pais/Santa Theresa is such a hidden gem! I hope it stays somewhat small and untouched. I'm ready to come back already!
Amazing house, service and whather!
We have met with Soraya, a great host right at the beginning. The house was perfect. Clean and beautyfull. The cleaning lady on site is very nice also. I recommend this property to everyone.
Wanted to stay forever.
Beautiful and well constructed home on Mal Pais mountain-side, with stunning sunsets over the Pacific. Perfectly appointed and very comfortable.
Second time here and we’ll be back
First visit was just the two of us for our 20th anniversary, but decided to come back with our teenage daughters two years later after the new addition (two new, amazing bedrooms and a spectacular second bathroom) provided sufficient sleeping space for all of us. Other than a few beach trips going to eat in town, my family never wants to leave the villa and they can’t wait to get back after dinner. It is the perfect place to relax and recharge or even get a little work done (the WiFi was solid).
Karla the housekeeper and her daughter do an amazing job and are such sweet people. Soraya manages the place very well and makes sure it is everything that is advertised and more. Already giving thought to when we can come back and have had a number of people ask for information about the villa for themselves. It’s perfection.
YOU WANT AWESOME ??? THIS IS IT!!!
It is rare that you read a description of a rental property and it is actually be more beautiful in person than in photos. The home could not have been more beautifully designed and executed ...
I just cannot say enough about this property and views and pool and location.
I would live here!!! Never have I stayed somewhere that everything from booking, to maid to service went so smoothly. You will not be disappointed .
