Mal Pais House Rental Photos and Description
Quiet And Relaxing Home With Spectacular Views
***Our private yoga shala is under construction and will be completed by mid-July 2014***
Casa Toucanet gets it's name from the colorful toucanet birds that frequent the fruit trees on this beautiful property. The house sits atop a small hill approximately 215 ft. above sea level and 1/4 mile in from Playa Mal Pais. This vacation home has the view, location, jungle scenery, and privacy you are looking for. We selected this home for this very reason. The home was completely remodeled in 2013 and it has a bright and airy feel. The bedrooms are air conditioned but sleeping with the doors and windows open is an option that allows you to hear the gentle roar of the ocean and the early morning sounds of the howler monkeys and parakeets.
The home has a small living room, a full kitchen, dining room,an outside patio downstairs, 2 1/2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms and a scenic porch upstairs. All of the doors and windows in the house are custom made from teak. The upstairs floor is also teak and the downstairs floor is finished with a mosaic tile.
The property also has a separate two story casita that is the home of the onsite caretakers. They are a great young couple from Virginia who will be happy to assist you during your stay and coordinate any tours or activities you desire. Surfing lessons and Private Yoga can be arranged through them! They are fluent in Spanish and can help you with any local information of your interest.

Meet our property managers Mikey and Jess Mausteller. Mike is an accomplished surfer, surf instructor and tour guide. Jess is a certified yoga teacher.
We purchased this property because it was away, but not too far away, from the center of activity in Santa Teresa. It's on a small hill at the end of a short and very private road and the views are exceptional. The house needed remodeling so we were able to make the modifications to make it 'ours'. It's not fancy but it is bright, clean and has everything you would need to enjoy your time away from home. The huge bonus we were not expecting was meeting Mike and Jess. They have been coming every winter to Mal Pais for 6 years and now we are doing everything we can to keep them there year round.
