vacation rental description

Villa Montemeru offers simple yet sophisticated and elegant accommodations. You enjoy magnificent views of the Pacific ocean from nearly every angle, with sunsets to die for. The house is custom furnished with beds, tables, chairs and closets in various tropical hardwoods. There are altogether four bedrooms, each with private entrance, private bathroom and balcony or terrace. All beds come with top of the line mattresses and 100% cotton linens. The windows and French doors are oversize and offer stunning ocean views. Three bedrooms have one king size bed each, while the fourth has two queen size beds. Two of the units feature wall-mounted flat panel TV monitors with iPod, PC & Mac connectivity, as well as Satellite TV. All bedrooms have ceiling fans that keep the interior cool at all times. The bathrooms are tiled in either ceramic, marble or natural stone, with eclectic accents that give each of them a unique look. Solar hot water systems automatically switch to electricity in the rare event that there isn't enough sun. The ground floor includes the sunken kitchen, a pavilion style dining and recreational area and the infinity pool. The kitchen comes with high quality cookware, appliances and an espresso machine.The crystal clear pool is maintained with a minimum of chemicals and the water has no discernible chlorine smell. The property has park like surroundings with a variety of tropical fruit trees and flowering ornamental plants, butterflies and iguanas. Frequent visits by exotic birds and monkeys are to be expected. The sun sets in the Pacific ocean right in front and regales the visitor with a daily changing spectacle. Our guests enjoy absolute privacy in an atmosphere of exquisite tranquility. There are two lovely beaches within five walking minutes and four restaurants also within walking distance.

Daily cleaning service, except Saturday & Sunday. Gratuity not included in rates.


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.


Being one of the premier surf destinations in Costa Rica, the waves are the main attraction 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. There is a discotheque right at Playa Carmen, a live music venue called La Lora Amarilla, various bars, occasional beach full moon parties with international DJ's, billiard, Cafes and a weekly organic produce cum flea market.


There's an abundance of outdoor yoga studios, massage therapists, chiropractor and other modalities.

There are good restaurants along the beaches and many cafes, as well as two European style bakeries and an Italian Gelato ice cream parlor. The southern Nicoya Peninsula combines breathtaking nature with high quality living. Come and enjoy it in the first class setting of Villa Montemeru and experience bliss.

traveler reviews for this mal pais villa rental


Review submitted: January 4, 2014   Date of arrival: December 28, 2013

Five of us just returned from a week at Villa Montemeru. We couldn't have been happier with the house, which is even more beautiful than the pictures and description suggested. The layout and decor are thoughtful and stylish, the indoor/outdoor kitchen and living room are gorgeous, the beds are comfortable, and the views of the ocean, jungle, and sunsets to die for. Mariella was an excellent host, welcoming but discreet, and gave us excellent suggestions for local beaches, food shopping, and restaurants. Although we ate out a few times in Santa Teresa and Malpais, we really preferred long, relaxed evenings in the house, with Ray and Marlie, the two adorable ridgebacks.
The region is beautiful, though the roads are sometimes rough and dusty. The house is situated high above the road and is therefore secluded and quiet, except for the wonderful noises of the jungle. One word of caution - the jungle and its wildlife are all around and very present, and if that doesn't interest you, this might not be the best area to stay in.
All in all, the location, the house, and the welcome make Villa Montemeru paradise. I hope we'll be back soon.

My wife and I took our four young-adult children and, for 3 of them, their significant other, to this villa at Mal Pais for a weeklong stay. From this property the view of the Pacific Ocean, sunsets, and jungle canopy is no less than extraordinary.The villa sits on a beautiful forested hillside away from the dust of the Mal Pais/Santa Teresa beach road, yet it's a moderate walk to the sea shore. We rented a vehicle so we could get out a bit to surrounding towns and sights. I'd recommend that you plan on doing so for part of your stay, unless you want to hang out mostly around the pool-- which certainly isn't out of the question-- or unless you're a dedicated walker. The facility was perfect for us-- nice infinity pool with nearby shower and bathroom; large open-air (but covered) poolside dining/gathering facility with comfortable tables and furniture, large bar/dining counter, and a a modern sunken kitchen with all necessary appliances; four spacious sleeping quarters each with its own beds, couches, bathroom, shower, closet, and separate deck. The pool and premises are well-lit at night. The owners were warm, always accessible, and obviously wanted our stay to be a great one, which it was.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: Thank you for your kind words. It was a pleasure to host you and your family. Happy New Year, Daniel

Review submitted: October 16, 2011   Date of arrival: January 21, 2011

Everything about Montemeru worked for us: Ideal setting, beautiful view, priceless wildlife experiences, and comfort. Daniel is a great host. We felt well cared for, and we really appreciated the dedication of his staff to keeping the place clean and tidy.

Montemeru is a great location with beaches within walking distance, and the sound of the surf to lull the tensions we came to escape. What a great place to unwind from our daily lives! We loved not being in town, but close enough for as many trips to the restaurants, stores, bakery, shops, and nightlife as we wanted. Daniel is very knowledgeable about the area and a great resource for directing you to wherever your desires might take you. His interest in our satisfaction was refreshing and made our entire experience of Costa Rica one not to be forgotten.

The description on this site doesn't quite do justice to the experience to be had at Montemeru. We loved cooking in the outdoor kitchen, eating at the beautiful wooden dinner table, and relaxing with each other poolside, morning, afternoon, or evening. The sunsets from the property were truly amazing, and a highlight for sure.

I could go on, but more words won't do justice to the time we had there.

All of the six people in our group agree: Montemeru is the place to be if visiting Mal Pais/Santa Teresa. If we return, we will definitely seek another stay at this wonderful property.
