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!

Outstanding host and home!

  • 5 of 5
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.

This is PuraVida!!

  • 5 of 5
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 blessed...you 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 only...in 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!

Feel like royalty!

  • 5 of 5
This home does not disappoint! We happened to be staying in Malpais for a destination wedding. My sisters, myself and our respective families, and our Uncle (=11 people total, representing ages 2-64) all stayed VERY comfortably in this home. The upstairs rooms were all very spacious and clean. It was wonderful to each have our own bathrooms (that you CAN flush the toilet paper). One suite has a bathtub. Our Uncle stayed in the downstairs main level bedroom (which would also make a great nanny bedroom as it is separate from the upstairs bedrooms and does not necessarily have access to the upstairs sleeping areas). All bedrooms have a view of the ocean. It was wonderful to see the sunset over the infinity pool edge! The pool also has seating for three by the edge inside of the pool if one would like to enjoy a sunset cocktail.
The kitchen was wonderful! It has a very spacious refrigerator/freezer. They also provided drinking water (even though Costa Rican water here is considered safe). We enjoyed cooking our deep sea fishing catch. We also love to cook so it was very easy to accomplish in this very well equipped kitchen. Barware was also not an issue. All is provided.
The interior design is very comfortable and eye catching. It is also wonderful to have access to laundry.
The outside tile choice was wonderful because they are not slippery when walking with wet feet. Plenty of towels were provided.
One will need a four wheel drive car when visiting Malpais due to the dirt roads and terrain.
I would recommend this home for young children only if you are comfortable keeping a diligent eye on them when outside. The drop offs are steep. There is no fencing to stop one from going over the edge. We had NO issues. My teenage children LOVED it here.
Our family also prefers privacy.
We felt very safe here as there is an onsite caretaker, locked exterior doors, lockable main driveway gate, and onsite safes.
The owner was very easy and pleasant to work with. We would DEFINITELY stay here again!

Amenities

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.
