HACIENDA OKHRA-ELEGANT VILLA WITH AMAZING VIEWS

Mal Pais House Rental Photos and Description

Main House-1 bed w/ 2 couch/beds in liv. area sleeps 4 & Casita- 1 bed studio

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.

A life long surfer of over 30 years, I fell in love with the area instantly. The diversity of things to do and see make this a very special area. Surfing, Standup Paddleboarding, Fishing, Horse Back Riding, Zip Lining, Waterfalls, Hiking, Beaches ae just a few of the attractions.

Andrew Drake purchased this house in 2006

I fell in love with this property from the moment I stepped foot on it. The amazing views of jungle and ocean combined with the unique ecosystem of a 70 year old tree behind the house make for a one of a kind experience. Whether you're swimming in the pool, playing ping pong or simply reading in a hammock Casa Almendro is an oasis waiting for you.

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

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!

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!

Gorgeous Home!

This home is located in the "jungle" yet was in a gated community so we felt safe. The area is undeveloped and we saw plenty of wildlife. It is remote and private and yet just minutes away from the beach. The house is absolutely beautiful and feels very Zen and relaxing. I love the open air shower and open air feel to the entire house. The caretakers are wonderful people, and the owner was wonderful and easy to work with.

You MUST go to Koji's sushi restaurant in Santa Teresa (get the drink called a Caprioska) and Habanero's beachside Mexican restaurant (get the seabass). There is a great beachside bar/restaurant in Playa Carmen that we went to every day (best mojitos I've ever tasted). There is a bakery in Playa Carmen that has wonderful breakfast foods and authentic Italian pizza for dinner. We also enjoyed Burger Ranchero. There are zipline tours and boat/island tours available in Montezuma and gorgeous beaches along the road between Montezum and Cabo Blanco. We can't wait to come back!
Owner's Response: I'm very happy to hear that you enjoyed my house and its setting. It is a special place.
Thanks
Andrew

This is a beautiful property. The design delivers a sublime harmony between architecture and nature. The placement on the hillside gives you incredible views, a refreshing breeze and a synergy with all the flora and fauna that make Costa Rica special.

Map

Car: necessary

While Costa Rica is known for the beauty of its winding coastline and pristine beaches, it is impossible not to become captivated by the brilliant green mountains that cover the majority of the country’s geography. Home to some of the most diverse species. Mal Pais is known to be a secret paradise, still very wild, you'll have the feel to be at the end of the world.This small surf paradise is a long beach of white sand, where you won't see any high buildings but only beautiful private houses hidden in the hills or small local houses on the street. You can go from beach to beach from the main road that goes all along. Also,home to some of the most diverse species of wildlife in the world, the rain-forests that cover the Costa Rican mountainside are truly a place of natural wonder and beauty.

Golf: Los Delfines Golf Club in Tambor offers a excellent course at affordable prices. Only a 30 minute drive on Hacienda Okhra
