vacation rental description

Casa Kala is an elegant and luxurious villa that is perfect for a family or group retreat. Catering for between two and ten guests, Casa Kala and Casita have been ecologically built with nature, comfort, style and privacy in mind.

Playa Hermosa, the most stunning beach in the area, is a 2 minute walk away through a wooded jungle path often frequented by Howler and Capuchin monkeys feeding in the Almond and Mango trees. There is world class surf, exquisite white sand, Almond and Palm trees for shade, low tide rock pools, safe swimming and the most incredible sunsets!

Casa Kala is an extremely spacious and colourful home complimented by a large private infinity pool with a child friendly beach entrance. It is set amongst lush tropical gardens full of birds, dragonflies and butterflies.

traveler reviews for this mal pais villa rental

Peaceful paradise

Review submitted: June 1, 2014   Date of arrival: May 13, 2014

My husband and I stayed in Casita Kala (next to Casa Kala) for just over a week. We were pleasantly surprised that the casita lived up to the pictures we saw on-line. Inside, the bed was super comfortable, and it was nice to have the kitchen to prepare our own meals. The bathroom is outdoors so we had to get used to visits from local land crabs (part of the experience:). It rained quite a bit while we were there (start of the rainy season) but there is a beautiful covered outdoor patio with a table and hammock so that was a real bonus. The grounds of Batik Costa Rica are very well kept and secure. There is a security guard at the front over night and cars are parked inside the gate. We felt very safe here.
The walk to the beach is quite short, and playa hermosa is a quieter and cleaner version of Playa Carmen (previously Playa Santa Teresa) is a sandy beach (no stones) and lots of waves. The rip tide can be quite strong so those with young children would want to be extra cautious.
We rented an SUV this trip which is a must have if you stay here and want to be able to do day trips and your own grocery shopping. Super Ronny 2 is where we did most of our shopping. Recommended restaurants Habanero for solid Mexican food, El Pulpo for take out pizza, and if you are willing to drive to Montezuma, Playa des los Artistas was great with the view of the ocean.
The manager Dahlia was great and super accommodating to us during our stay. The cleaning staff did a fantastic job cleaning our room everyday and making it smell nice.
We would absolutely go back, it is a great place to spend time if you really just want to relax and get away from it all.

Wonderful beach access Balinese-style villa set in beautiful landscaped gardens

Review submitted: March 27, 2013   Date of arrival: December 19, 2012

We are repeat clients here and it is becoming our home away from home. The villa is beautifully appointed with gorgeous wood and comfortable furniture. You can get as much or as little help as you want as far as cleaning and housekeeping. The pool is a welcome respite after surfing, or walking on the beach, which is just a stroll through the gardens and a bit of jungle. Monkeys are regularly seen. The sunsets are spectacular. There is a barbeque available, the village isn't too far away for supplies, and we just love it here.

Exceptionally beautiful beach Villa!

Review submitted: March 26, 2013   Date of arrival: March 12, 2013

Casa Kala really is paradise, situated in an idyllic and peaceful area on the Nicoya Peninsula. The Villa itself is beautiful, surrounded by tropical plants, an infinity pool, yoga studio, and in three minutes walking distance to an amazing private surf beach.
Me and my partner stayed for ten days of heaven on earth. The weather was exceptional, beautiful blue sky everyday, and with the pool and the sea right there to cool off in the heat never got too much.
From Casa Kala you can hear the howler monkeys, and see them in the mango trees as you walk down to the beach.
The villa is a short drive from Santa Theresa, a vibrant seaside town, with great food shops, independent cafes and bars.
The surf on Playa Hermosa can be exceptional, my partner and myself had been travelling down the west coast of Mexico, Nicaragua and Costa Rica, and we had one of our best surfs here!
