vacation rental description

Casa Noche del Mono sits within a private nature reserve in the hills above the Pacific Ocean on the southern Nicoya Peninsula. Our unique location ensures complete privacy and tranquility as well as abundant wildlife. Monkeys, agoutis, peccaries, kinkajus, deer, toucans, parrots and much more are all found within the reserve. The property is perfectly situated for exploring the nearby beaches and attractions of the area, including the towns of Manzanillo, Mal Pais, Santa Teresa and Montezuma.

The house itself is inspired by the Spanish colonial haciendas found throughout Central America and is the perfect blend of luxury and nature. Built around a central courtyard adorned with 5 fountains and tropical plants, the house remains a constant cool temperature. While all portions of the house are finished with the finest details (including granite and marble countertops, private terraces and bathrooms adjoining each bedroom, modern appliances and hand made tiles) the atmosphere is casual and perfectly suited to the natural surroundings. In addition to the 3 bedrooms, the house includes an indoor/outdoor rooftop terrace, a living room, a den with full satellite television, dining room, eat in kitchen and a 60 feet long terrace overlooking the pool, jungle and mountains. The large, blue-tiled infinity pool is perched on a hillside with spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and jungle. The pool contains an underwater lounging bench. Deck chairs and lounging cushions are located around the pool area.

The lush gardens surrounding the house and in the central courtyard are planted with flowering plants and tress from around the world, including breadfruit, guava, mango, avocado, heliconia and roses. The grounds are maintained daily by a gardener. The rest of our reserve consists of secondary forest laced with streams. We have ensured that these areas have not been developed or cleared (except for trails) and therefore retain an abundance of plant and animal life.

Full housekeeping and laundry services are provided. To ensure our guests' comfort, we have furnished the house with high quality 800+ thread count bed linens, plush bath sheets and other 'necessities.' In addition, the kitchen is fully equipped with high end cookware and virtually every cooking gadget imaginable.

Our property is centrally located on the southern tip of the Nicoya peninsula with the beautiful beaches of Playa Manzanillo and Playa Hermosa less than a 10 minute drive away. In addition, the towns and beaches of Montezuma, Santa Teresa and Mal Pais are less than 30 minutes away. Numerous rivers also run through the area. During your stay, we will be happy to arrange horse back riding, spa/massage treatments, golf games, fishing excursions, surfing lessons, canopy tours or any other activity the area offers.

If your dream vacation is total privacy and tranquility in a stunning natural setting as well as luxurious and centrally located accomodations, please contact us by email or phone. We will be happy to answer any questions that you might have about Costa Rica, the area or our house.

traveler reviews for this mal pais villa rental


Review submitted: August 18, 2014   Date of arrival: February 22, 2014

We had the true delight of staying (for our second time) in this magical place (I call it the Moroccan Palace) in February-March. We were a group of seven and had a fantastic time. The house is beyond anything you could wish for, with great:
living spaces
wild life

It is a short drive to the beach and we had a great time boogey-boarding in the surf.
The maid cleaned up daily and when we arrived at the house there were fresh cut flowers in the dining room and all of the bedrooms.
Bill and Frank were wonderful hosts, eager to assure we had everything we needed and answered all of our questions.

I can't wait to come back!

Wonderful Costa Rica Adventure

Review submitted: July 24, 2014   Date of arrival: July 12, 2014

My wife and I spent a week at this beautiful villa with another couple to experience a less touristy area of Costa Rica. The house is great and everyone associated with it were very friendly and helpful. Bill turned us on to a couple of sights that we never would have known existed without him. While staying there we hiked, ziplined in Montezuma, Snorkeled at Tortuga Island, spent a day on the beach watching surfers and working on our tans. We saw monkeys every day either at the house or while we were out. we saw dolphins, turtles, anteaters, iguanas and more varieties of birds than I can name. If you ask if we enjoyed it......I have 6132 pictures that say yes we did.

Architectural Masterpiece!

Review submitted: June 6, 2014   Date of arrival: May 23, 2014

Absolutely gorgeous home in a paradise of rainforest! We had howler monkeys eating mangoes from the tree next to the pool every morning and evening! The pool is so inviting, we swam every day, often several times a day. Every room is decorated with such detail, the artwork, the antiques, the fine linens! This is a special property, not your average rental. The beaches, the zipline, Curu Wildlife Refuge, etc. are all a short drive away. Paradise.
