vacation rental description

Casa Almendro de la Montana is an architectural masterpiece. Our beautiful 1 bedroom, 1 bath house is located just above the beach towns of Mal Pais and Santa Teresa.

We recently added a small 1 bedroom studio up above Almendro, so now the property is perfect for 2 couples or a couple with teenagers. The studio also has a swimming pool.

Nestled in the hillside jungle, the ocean and mountain views extend from every angle of the property. Perfect for couples or small families wanting comfort, safety and privacy while only minutes from pristine beaches, coves, restaurants and shops. Far enough from the hustle and bustle of town to enjoy the peace and quiet of nature, but close enough for all of your needs. By car it’s 5 minutes to the beach or 8 minutes to Cobano and Montezuma.

Casa Almendro de la Montana consists of 2 structures separated by a breezeway. One consists of the bedroom and bath with a built-in bench/couch that can also serve as a bed. The other has a large open living space/kitchen and terrace. This second structure has a long L-shaped couch that doubles as 2 additional large beds. The kitchen is fully equipped. Infinity Pool.

Malpaís:: Malpaís, originally a sleepy fishing village at the northern periphery of Costa Rica's first National Park, the Riserva Absoluta Cabo Blanco, today still retains much of its original tranquility and picturesque charm. Just as in days past, the fishermen arrive each afternoon with their daily catch, which they offer to the public. You won't find fresher fish than that. Santa Teresa, only a couple of miles up the road has all the hustle and bustle of a growing tourist attraction, with its hotels, restaurants, bars and shopping. But no matter how busy the main road, the beaches are always uncrowded, with a year round warm Pacific ocean in front and lush tropical vegetation behind. Malpaís is more residential. Only a handful of hotels and restaurants are found along the main road, but the hills are dotted with luxury homes and celebrity hideaways.

Entertainment: : Being one of the premier surf destinations in Costa Rica, the waves are one of the main attractions that lure visitors. But other recreational opportunities abound. Horseback riding along the beach or in the hills, gliding through the rain forest canopy on zip lines, hiking, exotic bird watching or just lying on a quiet but not entirely secluded beach and getting that healthy tan, it all adds up to bliss. For those looking for entertainment the area offers a wide variety of attractions. During the high season the now famous full moon party blasts off on the beach in front of Ranchos Itauna in Santa Teresa. An annual festival called Manifesto, that brings a week of daily parties with international DJ's and other entertainers takes place in various locations along the beaches.

Lifestyle: : Malpaís features a weekly organic market, Saturdays at 3pm at Playa Carmen, an abundance of outdoor yoga studios, massage therapists, chiropractor and other modalities. There are good restaurants along the beaches and there are excellent cafes and bakeries. To This whole area combines breathtaking nature with high quality living.

traveler reviews for this mal pais house rental

A Special Place

Review submitted: August 11, 2013   Date of arrival: July 8, 2013

This is a wonderful oasis in Mal Pais. Convenient to the surf towns, secluded and private, a gorgeous view. The open environment is one of a kind. Had to pull ourselves away. You won't be disappointed.

Amazing experience

Review submitted: April 3, 2013   Date of arrival: March 25, 2013

The whole experience of staying in this location was absolutely amazing, the people, environment, architecture, and vibe! We felt safe and secure but also had absolute privacy. It's the perfect place to feel at one with nature without having to sleep outdoors and sacrifice modern conveniences. We only left the house to get food and then couldn't wait to get back!!!! Thank you for the most relaxing vacation I have ever had!

Reset Button is here!

Review submitted: February 8, 2013   Date of arrival: January 20, 2013

We just arrived home from an amazing reset at the Hacienda Okhra!

We are absolutely thrilled with our stay in Mal Pais but it was this property which sealed the deal.

After a red eye flight we arrived later in the day and went off to sleep. When we woke in the morning to this unbelieveable view, complete with pool and lush foliage, we agreed it was more stunning than the photos let on.

This is our third time to Costa Rica but this property with it's stunning view is in a league of it's own.

We will be back next year - we miss this gem already!
