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

The perfect getaway

Review submitted: February 26, 2014   Date of arrival: February 8, 2014

This is the perfect rental if you want to immerse yourself in the local culture, yet have all the modern amenities at hand. My family of five stayed her for two weeks and had a wonderful time. The home is beautiful, the swimming pool is amazing and the surrounding forest and animals are stunning. Bill and Frank were very helpful and extremely knowledgable hosts, while Graciela the housekeeper and Rolando the groundskeeper were always there if we needed anything. The kids even loved Flaco the dog that would show up every time I would start the BBQ. I could not recommend this home enough. I look forward to coming back.

Absolutely Perfect

Review submitted: February 10, 2014   Date of arrival: January 12, 2014

We picked this location to experience Costa Rica how it used to be with very few tourists. Loved the location due to the surrounding area, very little trafic and lots of wildlife.
We were woken every morning by the howler monkeys and an abundance of bird life which was incredible. Went for walks every morning early, due to the heat, and took different paths to the right and left of the main road(Saw an albino parrot and many other parrots and wildlife down these paths)( Be sure to take some water just in case you get lost and the walk ends up being a little longer). Quite a work out. Went fishing in Malpais with the locals numerous times, horseback riding, waterfalls, etc.
Bill and Frank were excellent and the most helpful guides of all our trips to Costa Rica. They were gracious hosts and organized the excursions we needed.
We will return to this location probably next year and enjoy as much as this trip.

Favorite place in Costa Rica. Period.

Review submitted: January 17, 2014   Date of arrival: December 22, 2013

We just returned home from an amazing trip to Costa Rica, our third. This time we explored areas we had never been before and I can without a doubt that the Santa Teresa/Hermosa/Manzanillo area was by far our favorite and this was likely in part to the fact that we fell so in love with this villa, situated in what I"d call the Garden of Eden.
Everything about our experience there was heavenly. I'm not usually an early riser but found myself up every day around 5 or 5:30am to catch mother nature waking up, All the incredible sounds of the jungle and the beautiful light...looking back it was a highlight of my trip. We'd start each day with coffee in the upstairs open air room, flipping through books and just relaxing with the views.
The villa was enchanting and we tried to enjoy every bit of it. From the beautiful, unique tiles in each room, to the quirky artwork, to the comfortable living areas and lovely bedrooms. The water features in the middle of the house were a lovely touch as well. The kitchen was perfect for us. The house has it all.
But perhaps the best part of all, was the outside space with the pool and the loungers. I will never forget hopping in the pool at dusk and smelling the beautiful ylang ylang tree and relaxing there until the stars came out each night. You can see millions of them. It's so quiet, so peaceful, so out of this world.
I miss this place already but we'll be back. Thank you Bill and Frank for being so sweet and hospitable. We enjoyed your visits and really appreciated all your attention to detail and helping us with any questions we had. I'll tell you some of the best food in Costa Rica is in this area. We ate out a lot and were never disappointed. If you want an extraordinary experience, this is the villa for you.
