About the Owner

Growing up in Africa and living in Belgium for 17 years, I then traveled to Costa Rica in 2009 and fell in love with this country's enchanting nature, it's kind and welcoming friendly people, and most of all I succumbed to the enticing ocean and joy of surfing it's precious waves. My heart and mind were set on creating a new life for myself... I moved here in 2009, and a couple years later I bought this property and built a 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. Pura vida!

The perfect spot in mal pais / santa Teresa

This house really made our trip.

The views while having breakfast in the living room or during sunset while sipping a cocktail in the pool just made our trip! We hosted a big dinner after the owner arranged a fishing trip for us which topped any expectations. The kitchen is very well equiped and the house keepers are on it! We will be back next year!

Perfect Place in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing time here. The house is amazing, the views from anywhere are spectacular. You are in the middle of the rain forrest with panoramic views of the water, you can hear the waves and even the monkeys. This place is magical and I would recommend it to anyone, couples, families, group of friends or a small business retreat.

The owner is so helpful and friendly, she set up massages at the house for us, recommended great places to eat, visit, surf.

Outstanding host and home!

Outstanding. Wonderful house, great beaches, great town. We felt very welcome from the start and the house and view were better than the photographs! The back of the house also faces the forest, so you have the constant sound of birds and daily howler monkeys around you. The owner also made extra efforts to help us and our friends more than once during the stay.

We are a couple of spoiled non surfers (beach bums/divers) exploring costa rica's beaches for the first time.
We found our home away from home in casa makasi!
The owners were kind enough to close the extra (3) bedrooms and let us enjoy the privacy, beauty and views that this magical place provides.
You can see the ocean from every (literally!) window of the house...even in the shower!!
We loved the contrast between the modern perfection of the house and the lush wild jungle surroundings.
You can have breakfast in the patio and see monkeys in the trees just outside the house!!
The house itself is very well designed and practical, ac and safe in every bedroom, fully stocked kitchen, bbq...very close to the local fishing village...this is by far one of the best accommodation option you can find in the area...whether you are a couple looking for a secluted corner of paradise or a group of friends/family looking for a dynamic space able to hold and engage everyone as well as providing abundant privacy for all...the pictures don't do the place justice, at all!

We decided to extend our trip because of this house, we tried leaving it for a cheaper one but came back after 3 nights only...nothing beats the views you have here...every corner is see only soothing green and blue...from every window, from the pool, the hammock...the jacuzzi...
The house is usually fully booked during higher seasons but you may be lucky in the green season and score this gem!
The fact that the owner let us use a 4 br house by ourselves only proves how much they love this place!
A lot of home owners wouldn't open their big home for a couple casa makasi they did. Clearly because they want this paradise to be enjoyed!
They definitely did the right thing as we're still in the house but i felt the need to write this review and let the world know how amazing this place is!
We have yet to leave and already looking forward to return!

From the Owner

The panoramic ocean view ranges from the point break of Mar Azul to the beaches of Playa Carmen and Banana beach. You can watch the surf from every room or deck in the house or while taking a dip in our spectacular coralina infinity pool. We are a 3 minute drive to the beach and town center with it's restaurants, bank and supermarkets but just far enough up the hill to benefit from the peace and quiet of the pristine surrounding nature and it's enchanting sounds and sights.
