Overview

Mal Pais House Rental Photos and Description

Quiet And Relaxing Home With Spectacular Views

***Our private yoga shala is completed! For those of you looking to practice yoga, surf, and stay somewhere with outstanding views in one of the The Top 10 Beaches in the World (Santa Teresa/Mal Pais, Forbes Magazine, 2010) this is the place for YOU!!***

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.

About Peter Vigliano

Meet our property managers Mikey and Jess Mausteller. Mike is an accomplished surfer, surf instructor and tour guide. Jess is a certified yoga teacher.

Peter Vigliano purchased this house in 2013

Why Peter Vigliano chose Mal Pais

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.

Owner's Response: Mike and Jess said you guys had a great time. Hope you make it back again.

If you're reading this review then I'd like to say that there are many cool houses in Mal Pais/Santa Teresa. What makes this house special is our property managers. We love going there but it would not be the same without them.

Exactly as advertised

What to say - this is simply a beautiful, relaxing, clean modern home with spectacular views and a wonderfully kind and helpful caretaker. Our family of four - two adults and two kids, ages 5 and 8, were sad to leave this little piece of paradise. Best to stay at least 4 nights, if not longer. Beaches, town, restaurants are a very short drive away. The dirt road up to the home is very steep and requires a 4WD. AC in bedrooms and super comfy beds made for great sleeping. Highly recommended.

What a view!

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoy the house, the view and the road to go there. The kitchen is really practical for a family and a washing machine is perfect with young childrens. We didn't enjoy the view on the second floor as much as we wish with the kids...too young for the handrail.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your response. I agree that that the 2nd floor balcony can be hazardous for very young children. Also the stairs can be a bit tricky that's the primary reason that I suggested that you bring a portable gate along. I'm glad to hear that it was a pleasant stay and we welcome you back anytime.

Malpais Magic

  • 5 of 5
We arrived at this home after the last ferry from Puntarenas and a long day of travel. The property was up a very steep hill (thank goodness for our four wheel drive and even better gps system) but we were delighted to wake to gorgeous views of the ocean, lots of vegetation and a clean home that opened up to the outdoors! We have 3 kids and honestly we thought the rental car would be enough to get around but dirt roads, steep potholes made travel challenging. I'd highly recommend ATVs around this area - terrain is too steep and rugged for basic rental 4WD. We loved all the great little places to eat, especially all the organic healthy options, the local bands that played on the beach different nights and the surfing and reef fishing were incredible. My husband caught a 30 lb red snapper off a kayak! This home was close to most everything but enough away for quiet nights and mornings. There is a great little bar down the street that we enjoyed but nice to have your own fridge and laundry. We recommend this quaint little house, a little rustic without central air but an awesome place to getaway with family!

Owner's Response: Thank you for visiting our vacation home. I understood from the property manager you all had a great time and we hope you'll be back. I do want to clarify for future guests that the bedrooms do have new mini-splits that provide great cooling for sleeping; however, due to the very high costs of electricity in CR we are not able to provide full house A/C. Normally, during the day with the house open, the ocean breezes keep the house really comfortable but unfortunately you were there at the hottest and driest time of the year and it does get challenging for those of us that are accustomed to whole house A/C. Thank you again for visiting!
