Private, tranquil, and right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

I've been coming to Costa Rica since the early 90s, though this (amazingly) was my first trip to Santa Teresa/Mal Pais. Casa Celeste was perfect for our stay: quiet, private, mellow, and right on the beach. As other reviewers have noted, Vincente is an absolute jewel. Our 3.5 year old daughter quickly fell in love with him; he was like her 3rd grandpa. We enjoyed talking to him and hearing his stories, and he was always very helpful and considerate. Diana and Ran were responsive and answered all of our questions within hours. 5 stars!

Pure Vida in Mal Pais

  • 5 of 5

All the modern conveniences, the security and doting provided by Vincente the caretaker and the location right on the beach, Casa Celeste is a true gem! I hate to admit this as a US citizen, but satelite TV, WiFi, A/C, hot water and a washer & dryer go a long way to making a family vacation in Costa Rica go smoothly! Don't let the security system and the bars on the windows freak you out. Common sense plus these deterrents to crimes of opportunity can put your mind at ease so you can relax and enjoy your vacation. Vincente is always watching out for the guests and he's well-respected in the community that his presence alone is enough to deter theft. Vincente is so warm, friendly, helpful and intuitive especially when it comes to providing fresh coconut water without even asking! This was my family's fourth time to Mal Pais and I thought we would miss not having a pool on the property. Was I mistaken! Just north of the house there's a perfect little beach that was never crowded; the choice to play in the waves or wade in a tidal pool.

Some of our favorite activities include surfing at Playa Carmen (Adrian at Ollie's Adventures in Santa Teresa is great, especially for any beginners), SUP by the Fisherman village (ask for Andy and Edy next to the little Mal Pais grocery store), snorkeling at Secret Beach, hiking in Cabo Blanco and watching all the wildlife right on the property. A troop of Howler monkeys often settle down for the night in a large tree on the property. Like our past visits, our favorite eateries include The Bakery in Playa Carmen great breakfast and lunch, Burger Rancho for the boys after surfing, Caracola's within walking distance of Casa Celeste, and the family's favorite, Mary's Restaurant in Mal Pais. Don't forget Maracuya for the best smoothies in town!

Thank you Diana and Ran for sharing your beautiful gem in paradise and a big thank you to Vincente who was also very patient helping me re-learn my high school Spanish from many moons ago! Pura Vida!

EPIC Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Costa Rica and Casa Celeste came highly recommended. Upon our arrival we were extremely taken by the beauty and seclusion. The home was beautiful and perfect for the four of us. Vicente the caretaker was superb. His knowledge and helpfulness, along with his kindness and caring helped make this vacation very special. We woke up to him cracking fresh coconuts and when we left for the day he was always close, waiting for our return. We exercised on the beach routinely, had the opportunity to see all the beautiful sites and enjoyed the culture/relaxation Casa Celeste presented. The food was excellent, the views incredible, and the experience was epic! We will definitely return and would highly recommend this destination.

Casa Celeste is THE BEST!

  • 5 of 5

I had been to Costa Rica twice before visiting Casa Celeste in Mal Pais, and this beautiful home made my vacation ten times better than the other two visits. The home is the perfect size for two to three couples or two small families. The air conditioning was a nice touch and afforded sleep-filled nights. Being right on the beach with the sound of the waves made the gorgeous view even more heavenly. We walked and jogged on the beach each day and enjoyed the tide pools (almost like jacuzzis) each day. Santa Teresa is right down the street and has amazing restaurants of all types, but we also loved being able to make a lot of our meals at home. Vicente, the caretaker, was by far the best amenity of this delightful place. He was so helpful, so caring and had great ideas and advice for our adventures. I highly recommend this place for anyone who wants to have a combination of relaxation, adventure, beauty and pampering. I will definitely return!

Pura Vida Perfection

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have visited various parts of Costa Rica for the past five years (West side, Caribbean side, Manual Antonio/Quepos, Atenas, Arenal, Monteverde....and places in between). For the past two years, we have been fortunate enough to stay at Casa Celeste (both times, for about 8 days each). It is hard to capture the perfection of this property. In short, we'll never stay anywhere else.

First, its location: It is on the beach (few houses in this area are) in a quiet and serene part of Mal Pais. I feel as if I'm in a nature reserve just sitting in the yard!! (Speaking of nature, you can see iguanas, monkeys, wild horses, birds -- all kinds of things!) The views are breathtaking, and the tide pools out front are always a blast to explore. It is very close to Santa Teresa (where the stores, restaurants, surf shops can be found), but is far enough away from all of that for those who appreciate a nice respite and who are seeking some peace, serenity and nature.

Secondly, the house itself. It is adorable, with a great covered patio (great for watching the rains come in the afternoons, or for escaping the sun when needed!). The view from the kitchen is amazing for those who wish to cook. (We cooked in most days....its hard to leave the property its so nice!!) The beds are incredibly comfortable, and there is AC. For those new to Costa Rica, trust me, these are amenities that are NOT typical.

Finally (and most importantly), the caretaker Vicente is the most amazing man I have yet to meet. (Not to worry, my husband knows I feel this way -- and he agrees!!) While he is there to ensure your satisfaction and your safety, you will get SO much more out of meeting him. He is wise, kind, loving, and generous. We feel we leave there better people as a result of spending time with him. He quickly became (and remains) one of our dearest friends. He will be there to answer your questions as much or as little as you'd like -- so you definitely still have privacy, but you have a "go-to" guy if you need it.

Oh! And I'd be remiss without mentioning how wonderful Diana and Ran are to work with. They are quick to respond and incredibly professional. Between them and Vicente -- you will be well taken care of!!

Best vacation ever!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely, loved our time at Casa Celeste. It is the perfect house

to spend your vacation at when visiting this area. We first went to

Arenal which was also great but we enjoyed the beaches of Mal Pais and

Santa Teresa much more! Vicente the caretaker is amazing and super

helpful. The house is secure and safe. Centrally located to the center

of town. We built a fire at night right on the beach and enjoyed the

sunsets and stars every night. You can hear and see the waves from the

Master Bedroom. Monkeys visited us each day. There is a lot of amazing

wildlife to see and enjoy on the property. We will definitely be back

next year.
