About Aidan Prior

We also own Hotel Moana here in Mal Pais which we took over in 2006. I hail from Ireland while Vicky is a Costa Rican native. Both Aidan and Vicky have a history in the hospitality as weve been running our hotel and restaurant for the last 8 years.

Aidan Prior purchased this house in 2011

Why Aidan Prior chose Mal Pais

We first bought the hotel in 2005 and we had to patiently wait to buy the land for the house. Once we managed to buy the land in 2010 I wanted to realize my dream of building a beautiful and functional house on this amazing hill top for all to enjoy the incredible views. I then designed the house and had it built in 2011 and we've decided this year to open it up to the public.

What makes this house unique

Over the last 10 years Ive been building and developing here in Costa Rica. I took that experience to design a house that can provide the upmost comfort but yet be stylish and welcoming. The rewarding part now is when I sit out and enjoy my morning coffee as I watch the waves break all along the coast line, heaven!

The pictures really don't do the house justice at all. Casa Moana is amazing and is the perfect combination of open air living with enclosed space. The accommodations are grandiose and perfect for families, group getaways or such... spoiled us with the entire house for only two! We ran around looking at every room blinking our eyes at the enormity of it all. The décor is fun, but tasteful. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need, the pool was breathtaking, and the hammocks were a great place to siesta.

The home owner, Aidan, was so helpful and communicative throughout the booking process. William, who is the onsite property manager was very nice and helpful when we needed him (though it should be noted that he doesn't speak English, but we spoke enough Spanish to get by). Marie cleaned the house and she was also extremely nice and very thorough. I couldn't say enough about them both.

The only items worth mentioning of concern is that there was not enough hot water to fill up the spa bath in the master bedroom. It didn't even make it as high as the jets. We waited until the water heater got hot again and managed to fill up the tub to at least cover the jets. Unfortunately, once we got inside the tub and turned the jets on... dead ants came spraying out of them thus abruptly ending our bath.

Seriously, though, it wasn't a big deal... There is a lovely Jacuzzi outside with a view of the ocean and the house is extremely private. Just get naked and relax there. Amazing.

CASA MOANA

  • 5 of 5
Foi a primeira vez que fui a Costa Rica estavamos de férias eu e uma turma de amigas. Alugamos a Casa Moana por por uma semana, fomos muito bem recebidas pelo gerente e por todos do hotel.
A casa é incrível, desde o momento que entrei fiquei encantada com cada detalhe, a vista de cada quarto e da piscina são mágicas, mas
definitivamente o que me deixou mais apaixonada foi o por do sol esperando para ser visto, aquele por do sol que expande a alma e enche o peito de uma alegria indefinível e infinita.
Alem de tudo isso, tive experiências gastronomicas incríveis na Casa Moana, a comida, a bebida são sensacionais!!!! O Mojito deles foi o melhor que ja tomei em toda minha vida, uma bebida leve e refrescante que tem tudo haver com o lugar!!!
É essa experiência incrível, nesse lugar que nos enche os olhos e o coração, que recomendo a todos, um lugar que nos faz sentir em casa, nos faz liberar os sentimentos mais puros, um lugar para relaxar a mente e a alma.

Fantastic house and location. There were 12 people in our party and we felt right at home upon arrival. We were greeted by the Hotel Manager, Bruno who helped us settle in and was more than willing to assist us in transportation, takeaways etc. Hiring ATVs is recommended as the dirt road up to the house is very steep and uneven. The house is nicely located though, away from the dust and main road. Short distance to the beach and town. Great experience!!!

WHAT A HOUSE, WHAT A VIEW!

  • 5 of 5
We have traveled to Costa Rica a few times but this was our absolute favorite. We were really not sure about renting a home, but with 6 kids to bring it was really our best option. First off, the owners are so accommodating and just super friendly people. Second, if you have been to the Mal Pais/Santa Teresa area, you need to. It is unbelievably beautiful and quiet. Third, the house is incredible. On the drive up the hill, you are surrounded by trees and the driveway is a steep drive down. The minute you open the door, you are amazed by the views from EVERY room. The view is stunning. Wide open views of the ocean, beach, and even howler monkeys in the trees. The pool is outstanding as well. This home is perfect for those with a large family and for those with kids. The very cool feature is that all the rooms are basically outside of the main area and have their own entrances and locks. Very cool if you are traveling with friends and wish to have your own "semi-private" area. The kitchen, dining, and living room area is all in the center of the home with a large entertainment area upstairs and outside overlooking the pool, grounds and ocean. We had a chef come prepare meals for us two of the nights we were there and the kids were impressed! He was able to get them to eat fish twice!! We also rented side by side ATVs from the Toyota rental place which I highly recommend. That was really a lot of fun and allowed us to visit areas you couldn't reach by car. One other feature was the owners have a lodge directly below the house and you are able to order food from there. We ordered breakfast one morning and they delivered it to us!!! You will not be disappointed in this rental, it offers everything you could possibly need and more. Again, the owners are wonderful and able to assist you with whatever you may need.

Casa Moana

  • 5 of 5
Awesome house and location. There were 10 people in our party and there was lots of space in this house. The pool is great along with the upper covered patio. The road up to the house is very rough and a 4x4 is recommended. You need to drive a short distance (5 minutes) to access a good swimming beach. The house is located up on a hill and is very private and away from the dust. Highly recommend a stay at Casa Moana.
