Hello all! I first bought a vacation home in Mal Pais, Costa Rica in 2005 after I rented a villa for a week with friends. I was so amazed with the area and fell in love with the atmosphere so much that I ended up buying the house I rented. Since then I have truly loved to share this place with friends, family and guests through rentals. We stayed so busy that I was having to turn people away. So instead of turning them away because our home was so busy I decided to start a luxury vacation rental company. I now work with over 20 homes in the Mal Pais and Santa Teresa area. My passion is to be able to find that perfect home for our guests so that they also can show up in a home and feel the same way I did when I fisrt arrived to Mal Pais. I would love to help you find that dream home and help you create that perfect vacation. I have met so many wonderful people since 2005 and it just keeps growing. I would love to help so please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions.
Casa Pez Volador is truly a special place with unbelievable views. We've stayed in Mal Pais a few times before but never with so much style. This house truly defines environment-inspired architectural design.
Vaulted ceilings, massive balconies, huge open-concept kitchen/great room, floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors revealing the Pacific Ocean from every room and the large infinity pool are some of the highlights of this house. The open air bathroom/shower is pretty awesome too!
Watching the sunsets from the pool or any number of the balconies became our nightly ritual never to be missed. No matter how much fun we were having during the day, cruising on quads, swimming, surfing or exploring, we always made sure to make it back to the house in time for those gorgeous sunsets… with an ice cold beer in hand of course.
The on-site staff were so warm and friendly too. They were always within an ear-shot's range if we ever needed anything but we still felt as if we were the only people on that mountain, day or night.
We will most definitely be back. No need to look any further as far as we're concerned, we've found our “Mal Pais Paradise Palace!” Pura Vida!

First off, Maipais is definitely off the beaten path. If you're looking for a place to get away from the rat race of the world, Maipais is as good as I've seen. Rugged dirt roads, friendly non-pretentious people, a beautiful local culture and incredible unspoiled natural beauty.
The house is stunning. Beautiful open area with 20' ceilings for the kitchen and living room. Nicely decorated and well appointed with everything you need. Beds were comfy with good quality sheets and pillows. The infinity pool and decks were truly awesome with great outdoor furniture to lounge on. And can't forget the upstairs bathroom with the huge covered, but open air shower. The house is kept very clean by the staff.
Nadja (the concierge) along with Juan Carlos and Brenda (maintenance and cleaning) were completely unobtrusive but also very very helpful. If you get a chance, take an ATV tour with Xtreme sports in maipais. Johan is the owner there and if you can, get Jeremy to be your guide as we had a blast on a 9 hour private tour of the region.
Some final notes
* Make sure to have a 4WD vehicle as you won't be able to get to the house without one.
* Costa Rica has ants, geckos, lizards, monkeys.etc. If you are a squeamish person who is used to only traveling to five star resorts, maipais and this house is probably not for you as it is in the jungle.
* Google maps works great 90℅ or so of the time, but the two times it didn't it nearly took us into a river at night and to the wrong ferry on our way home. Use common sense and you'll be ok.
* We can't wait to come back in 2017.
Beautiful, comfortable home with a spectacular view! Lush tropical forest surrounding a perfect infinity pool. We spent a lot of time just floating and listening to the ocean waves. Comfortable beds and a kitchen ready for anything, and even that room came with expansive views of the Pacific. Nadja, Brenda, and Don Carlos were available for anything we needed, taking off all the worry that comes with some vacations. It was a perfect, private and remote retreat for us.
To be sure, you will need a 4 wheel drive to get around Mal Pais, but that just added to the fun! This part of Costa Rica isn't a drive to the city beach, it's an adventure for sure among friendly, welcoming people and incredible natural beauty.
For food there are plenty of small local restaurants, a Pali grocery store just a few kilometers out of town on the way in, or have a chef prepare your table any night.
The pictures don't do justice to this great vacation home, and we can't wait to go back and take more of our own!
We've had a fantastic time! We are filled to the brim with sun and sand and Imperial and more food than we could possibly justify. Your home is spectacular. In particular, I appreciate the clean, bright, minimal yet super tasteful feel, to say nothing of the HUGE ocean view.
We were well-cared for by Juan Carlos, Nadja and Mirna and now must face the somber task of returning to reality. Luckily it's summer at home so we still have lots to look forward too.
Many thanks for checking in and for all of your help AND for your stellar home in Mal Pais.
All I can say for our group is WOW!!!.... We had the best time staying at this place and found it to have everything we needed and more than we expected when it came to atmosphere and view. Nadja was there to greet us and ensure that we had everything we needed. She had full knowledge of the surroundings and services. We enjoyed to privet chef she help us with and the food was fabulous. I am sure we will return to this property in the near future.
They say a picture says a 1,000 words...and yet the pictures of the house seriously don't exemplify the amazingness that the house really is. The goal of our trip was privacy and relaxation and the house provided that and more! The caretakers, Brenda and Juan Carlos, were the absolute best! Brenda cooked a perfectly delicious tico breakfast for us a few mornings and Juan Carlos took impeccable care of the property while we were there; the pool was always clean, the furniture was in excellent condition, and during an INSANE thunderstorm one evening Juan Carlos checked on us to make sure that we and everything was ok! Brenda also took amazing care of cleaning the house - even though it was just my husband and I! They were seriously the best - and aside from our coordinated run-ins we really had no idea they were there. Also, we felt very safe and secure at the house, but I think having Brenda and Juan Carlos there added additional peace of mind as well. Our morning ritual was to get our coffee and breakfast and books and bask in the absolutely stunning view from the patio - then spend the remainder of the day with an imperial in-hand floating in the pool (we brought our own favorite floatys)! You really never have to leave if you didn't want to (yes even the burger rancho delivers!)! We absolutely loved the location (note that you will need a 4x4 car rental or ATV) - it was close to literally everything, but at the house you feel like you couldn't be more far away and private. Two of our favorite restaurants, Caracolas and Ritmo, were the closest restaurants to the house and we couldn't be happier!
There truly aren't words to explain except to say that this house is totally Tuanis! We will most definitely be back and look forward to working with Jeremy again in the future - he made everything so easy and accommodating! All in all, one of the best experiences and homes we've ever stayed at.
Loved, loved, loved this place. We had two families with 4 kids and it was an incredibly memorable vacation. It's the perfect house for two families with kids - two master bedrooms, two kids' bedrooms, easy access to the pool and a great, spacious kitchen. The views are spectacular from the property and we could have spent most of our time at the house if there weren't so many great activities nearby. They have the most amazing caretakers at the property - including the concierge - and I highly recommend the breakfast service each morning on the deck. We went ziplining and hiking and spent lots of time at the beach. Highly recommend ATV rentals instead of a car there.
