Overview

Mal Pais Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 1 Bedroom, 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Casa Luna Luz is a private and tranquil estate, ideal for a couple or couple with small children. The home sits on a hilltop above the towns of Mal Pais and Santa Teresa. It offers 180 degree spectacular views of the ocean, at over 800' above sea level, but close enough to hear the sounds of the surf below. The home was completed in 2010 so it is completely furnished with new appliances and furniture. The estate offers you a perfect private spot to get away, yet close enough to town and surf breaks to enjoy all the pleasures of visiting Mal Pais, Santa Teresa, and other close by towns.

There is an on-site caretaker to make sure all the details are perfect. We provide daily house cleaning and laundry as part of the service. A property manager lives in Mal Pais and is easily available for any and all questions.

We just completed a brand new infinity pool on the property. Relax and swim in the beautiful pool and look at the ocean and the jungle birds fly past.

We (the owners) live here 2 months a year, and have been coming for over a decade. This is our retreat and second home, ...and for the first time, we are sharing all its beauty with others.

We invite you to slow your life down, listen to the sounds of nature everywhere, and relax to experience what we have come to love so dearly.....paradise!... Enjoy yourself and have a wonderful vacation!

Keywords: Large Private Property, Spectacular Ocean Views, Infinity Pool, On-site caretaker/house cleaner. Perfect for a couple or family with 2 children.

About joey

I grew up in New England, currently reside in Sonoma County CA., and first visited Costa Rica in 1999, traveled all over the counrty exploring and surfing, found Mal Pais, and Santa Teresa, and never left!..Its magic....bought the land buit a small house, and lived in it for awhile then two years agod we did a total high end remodel. It is our treasure, our santuary, our retirement, and our childrens future. Blessings and Gratitude.

joey purchased this villa in 2004

Why joey chose Mal Pais

The views are stunning. It is so quiet and private, no road noise. All you can hear and see is nature. The sounds of the waves crashing below is sooo soothing, and the night sky simply takes your breath away.

What makes this villa unique

There are not many new hilltop, private, luxurious, secure, locations with a salt water infinity pool in Mal Pais or Santa Teresa, and at the price point we have chosen. . From our driveway, you can take the old road that winds for miles through the forest and jungle. You will see beautiful old farms, new private estates, monkeys, amazing birds, Chameleons, and Iguanas, trees so old you'll be amazed,.. foliage and flowers...the list go on and on.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hello Joey,



Sorry I didn't get back to you earlier, we've been on the road the last 3 days!

Our stay at your house was fantastic! Such a lovely place, breathtaking views and sunsets, so peaceful and beautiful! It was perfect, no other place we went after that could quite match up! My friends loved it and had a wonderful time in Mal Pais... so thank you.

The service was perfect, Trent was very nice and helpful and Xavier and his wife did a great job, everything went smoothly!



I would definitely rent it again if I have more friends visiting!



Again thank you for everything,

Lila

Inspiring

  • 5 of 5
After our visit to Casa Luna Luz, all we could think about was how to replicate the outdoor living space at home. All we are missing is the ocean and beautiful rainforest scenery.

We spent most of our time at the house enjoying the covered outdoor living area, dining table, and sundeck/pool. When we did venture inside to cook or sleep, it was comfortable and clean, and nice to have all the dishes and utensils provided.

We rented a Daihatsu Bego 4x4 from Budget, and it was sufficient for climbing the road to the house, and navigating the bumps along the roads to Tambor and Montezuma. Traveling in September or October will result in many of the restaurants being closed, but there were enough open to have variety on a short 5 day trip.

Malpais is a great place to unwind and enjoy Costa Rica. The people are friendly and helpful, but not pushy. We would recommend renting this home, or any Casas De Soleil property.

Serenity in Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5
Casa Luz de Luna is paradise in the hills. The only thing other than yourselves that can be heard is the chirping of birds and the overflow of the delightful infinity pool. The villa itself is extremely spacious, comfortable and in amazing condition. We made snacks and cooked pretty much every day we were in Costa Rica - which was an absolute treat. The road leading up to the villa is a trip as well! You'll certainly want a 4x4 heading up the twisting steep incline.

I have nothing bad to say about our experience we had at the villa or in Malpais. The town itself is fantastic and everyone we spoke to was friendly and generous. We can't wait to come back!!

Thank you Soraya for all of your assistance prior to and during our visit! You're awesome and a real gem!

Great view, good value, helpful staff, and beatiful house!!

  • 5 of 5
The house was beautiful and had an awesome pool and view. Waking up to the birds and animal noises each morning was a great experience. My personal favorite was the hammock and infinity pool. Little did we know that Mal Pais was such a surfing gem. The waves were perfect and we really enjoyed the locals and the surfing vibe. The house was well equiped and had everything we needed. Trent and Soraya, the property managers were very helpful with suggestions, booking a fishing trip, and surf board rentals. The local restaurants are all really good and you can't beat the surfing and beautiful beaches. There's no TV but we didn't mind because they had wifi. Be sure to rent a substantial vehicle with 4x4. Don't go for the cheapest option as the roads are terrible and you'll regret cheaping out on a small vehicle. I highly recomend this rental and would certainly go back.

PURE PARADISE, EXCEPTIONAL

  • 5 of 5
This home is simply breathtaking! The view was spectacular. It was so nice to swim in the infinity pool and look out over the ocean. Lots of birds around us. Loved opening the large doors to bring the outside in every day and enjoyed the outside living area immensely. Master is large, bed is comfortable and air conditioner works great. Large bathroom was also very nice. Kitchen was very well equipped as well and loved the large speakers with ipod dock. DID NOT WANT TO LEAVE THIS PLACE AND I WILL BE BACK!

The perfect honeymoon

  • 5 of 5
After months of stressing over our dream wedding, we were able to have our dream honeymoon at Casa Luna Luz. The house itself is perfect: clean, comfortable, private yet close to town, the beach and anything you might need. The pictures do not even begin to describe how incredible the house is. We spent our days hiking, swimming and reading in the hammocks. We woke up to beautiful sunrises, enjoyed amazing tropical thunder storms and witnessed insanely romantic sunsets. Joey was immediately responsive and extremely helpful while we were planning our trip, giving great advice regarding rental cars and travel. Soraya and Trent took great care of us, with wonderful recommendations for things to do and places to eat, and made sure we were relaxed and taken care of. It was better then any hotel we stayed in, the privacy and quiet gave us time to reflect on our glorious wedding weekend and make plans and dreams for the future. We fell in love with Malpais, and each other all over again. We can't wait to come back!

Serenity overlooking the Pacific

  • 5 of 5
The property is beautiful and offers so much more than the photos even show. The house, inside & out, is constructed & designed in such a way to only enhance the surrounding jungle & beach. The open floor plan allows for cross breezes and surround nature sound. The pool and sun deck were serene and offers incredible views. The drive up the mountain to the house was like a mini-adventure every time- only 4wd will make it up. The double rain shower was amazing. There are also double his/her vessel sinks with stone counters that tie into the theme in the house. There is a full length balcony off the master upstairs. The sunsets are an absolute every night. All in all, the house is beyond beautiful & a place we will return at some point.

You can watch the monkeys and tropical birds fly by in this house. It also is located on a road that is rarely used but goes through the jungle. It is amazing for viewing local wildlife (which is abundant) and running/hiking/mountain biking.
