About the Owner

I built this house with my parents in 1994. We moved to Mal Pais from California and never looked back. I married a local girl and now have a daughter of my own. My wife and I own and operate Marys Restaurant / Organic Farm just 50mts down the road.

The most peaceful place

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at this lodge for a very short period, but I did not want to leave. It is the most peaceful place to stay at. Granted that I was there during the low season, but I also know that Mal Pais doesn't get flooded with tourists as other towns in the area, so it's pretty quiet with rock-free beaches. The lodge itself is very clean and the open concept is just a unique and beautiful feature of it, making it aesthetically very pleasing and enjoyable. It has all the necessary furniture, appliances (even a blender)...the owners are very friendly and warm people!

First rate all the way around. I highly recommend this dream home to anyone looking for the best possible Costa Rica vacation experience. The home is incredibly beautiful and crafted with such taste and care in the highest quality manner. Open air tropical breeze gently moves through the home and the superb hand crafted comfortble furniture throughout the home makes for a very relaxing and beautiful environment. In my opinion it doesn't get any better than this. Everything you need and nothing you don't. Alex the owner couldn't be more warm, welcoming and helpful. All our needs were met and then some. Not to mention this gorgeous home sits on one of the most pristine pieces of land just steps from the sand of your own private cove. This place is the real deal tropical paradise dream home. We particularly enjoyed relaxing on the incredible gereously sized patio that looks out onto and maximizes the breath taking views of the river, natural reserve, countless exotic trees, and the gorgeous beach and Pacific Ocean right in front of you. From the comfort of our beds, the living room, kitchen and patio we saw the best of what Costa Rica offers... Wildlife (horses, monkeys, birds, iguanas, etc) world class sunsets and we woke up and went to sleep to the sound of the waves gently crashing on the shore. The house is also conveniently located just a short walk to Mary's organic farm to table restaurant (our favorite in the area). I hope you your friends and your family get to enjoy this experience as much as we did. Pura Vida.

Costa Rican Getaway

  • 5 of 5
I had the best stay at this house. Alex was so warm, friendly and super attentive. It was my first time in Costa Rica and the house and Alex made it a wonderful trip.

The house is so breathtaking with its beachfront backyard views and beautiful layout of the house.
I went with my 2 siblings and 2 friends. So its comfortably fit 5, but Alex has more beds if necessary.

Super clean and extra plus for having a maid upkeep the property and help with the laundry. Not to mention their family owned restaurant Mary's Restaurant is located 2 minutes walking distance, which is also a must see.

We all enjoyed our time there and I highly recommended booking this house. Pura Vida.

Love This House

  • 5 of 5
This is an amazing house. You are literally surrounded by the best Costa Rica has to offer, you go to sleep with the sounds of the ocean, wake up to horses on the beach, and monkeys in the trees. The house sits in it's own basically private cove, in a really mellow low traffic area. As a huge bonus it's got some fun little waves out front at the daily high tides.

The owners of the house also run Mary's Farm and Mary's Restaurant and will hook you up with eggs or a farm tour for kids who like animals. I've stayed here a few times with friends, and once with the Oneill women's team for our shoot with Elyse Taylor. Everyone loved it and the house was used in the final catalog and video which you can see at matt wignall dot com.

amazing location!

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here with my family last month. The open plan makes for a truly remarkable experience. You can hear monkeys and the ocean at the same time. It's also much closer to the water than the pictures suggest. It's right there past the trees. best part is the beach is basically private as there's no public access nearby and only one neighbor. We're definitely coming back next year. Great house, great area.

Amenities

From the Owner

We are in a quiet, intimate, private cove in old town Mal Pais. Steps from the beach with wifi and all the amenities, yet away from the tourist noise. A 5-minute drive to Playa Carmen- Bank, Farmacy, etc.. A 2-minute walk to Marys Restaurant/Organic Farm and old town Mal Pais- the school, church, soccerfield, fisherman's beach... Surfing and swimming, fishing and tide pools, the ocean is an integral part of daily life. The house is also bordered by a stream- wildlife is everywhere, monkeys, birds, parrots, iguanas, etc.. Across the street is Marys Organic Farm!
