Beachfront House with Stunning Views, Friends & Family Friendly

Casa Celeste is a 2-bedroom beachfront home located in Mal Pais. Staying at Casa Celeste is like staying in your own nature park. It is the perfect spot for those looking for privacy. This incredible tropical location will cradle you in comfort with its two spacious air-conditioned bedrooms. Enjoy the soothing sound of the waves from every point of this house. This very private house is located right on the beach. All amenities are there for your comfort including two full bathrooms with showers, kitchen, satellite TV, wireless internet, telephone, outdoor shower, hammocks, A/C bedrooms, board games, DVDs and player, ceiling fans, car port, large outdoor patio dinning area, and covered veranda for relaxing in the shade. The spacious outdoor patio is the perfect place to enjoy the cool ocean breeze. This incredible location is also a natural corridor for much of Costa Rica’s animal inhabitants. Casa Celeste is perfect for lazy days of sunning, swimming and sipping margaritas. Right out front you can enjoy a dip in the large private tide pools. Experience fabulous sunsets in the evening. The sun sets each day out front over the water. You can hire a private chef for dinner or cook your own meals in the fully equipped kitchen. This is the ideal spot for a surf trip, couples get-away or the perfect family vacation.

For those interested in surfing there is a left point break within a short distance, and for the more experienced surfers there is a right point break steps from the property. About 500 meters north, experience the World Famous beaches of Playa Carmen and Santa Teresa. This beach break stretches over 2 km and offers year round surf.

Possibily the best located house in Malpais

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 very much enjoyed our short stay at Casa Celeste: and I agree with the other reviewers. Vicente was welcoming and yet reclusive, the house was rustic, clean and comfortable. The location was the best we say along the shore of Malpais. The owners were responsive and it was easy to book with them. Everything was comfortable and nice. The only thing I missed was a microwave and we got over that quickly. Cold milk with your coffee isn't the end of the world....We had a big truck which was a bit difficult to park in Santa Teresa so I recommend a smaller 4 wheel drive or rent an atv to drive to the store. Visit the tico restaurant Caracoles 2 houses up - wonderful food and very nice hosts.The bakery was excellent, but we preferred to eat breakfast and drink our coffee at the best view in town - Casa Celeste. Visit secret beach at low tide so you can snorkel, but bring your shoes at it's very rocky, but lovely. Make sure you visit Playa Hermosa which I believe is one of the loveliest and safest beaches to swim at in CR. Enjoy!

Welcoming, clean and rustic

  • 5 of 5

Casa Celeste is a nice, welcoming, clean and rustic house. It is well situated in Malpais and totally appropriate for a family. The owner is pleasant and provided all the information we needed to go to the house and to enjoy the surroundings. The caretaker is a gem.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Vicente, the house manager, is the star of the show--incredibly helpful and great with the kids and always making sure to give us lots of privacy. He kept the house spic and span and brought in a housekeeper every few days to change sheets, etc. He helped us book ATV's, a boat trip, and even cooked a delicious breakfast for us one day! Diana, the host, was also very helpful, immediately responding to all our email and helping us find a local babysitter.

Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

We got back from Casa Celeste 2 weeks ago and it's been on my mind ever since. Our stay was amazing and so is Vicente!! Vicente made our stay truly special, something we will never forget. The home is beautiful and comfortable, has everything you need. The scenery is beautiful it feels so secluded, though everything (i.e. restaurants, stores) is nearby. We rented ATVs for the time there and got around the village just fine. I would absolutely recommend Casa Celeste if you'll be traveling to Mal Pais!!!

Incredible Spot!

  • 5 of 5

We came across this house while eating breakfast down the street debating our next move for the trip.

Diana got back to me immediately and 3 hours later we were lounging in the hammocks situated right on the beach in front of the house. Vicente was extremely helpful and most importantly, a great guy.

This house was everything we needed for an amazing week!

An Absolute Gem!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 ended our Costa Rican vacation at Diana's and Ran's Casa Celeste from July 2nd to July 5th. We arrived from Monteverde by 4WD through at-times torturous roads and we found paradise! We could not have picked a more heavenly setting after a two week adventure trek through Costa Rica! The property is beautiful, the ocean views are gorgeous, the house is spacious, well-equipped and clean and Vincente the care-taker is a wonderful, heartwarming gentleman...We will always remember his hospitality. A family of howler monkeys greeted us every morning and evening, wild horses grazed by the ocean, iguanas scampered across the front lawn, geckos ate supper with us, millions of tiny crabs descended upon the beaches in the evenings, tropical squirrels fought over coconuts! What more can you ask for! We walked along the shore from the house to the beach of Mal Pais and all the way to playa Santa Teresa, where we enjoyed a full day swimming and playing in the surf. Best waves ever according to the kids! Vincente set us up for surfing classes at Playa Carmen with Luna and Edite. We had a blast! The town of Santa Teresa is a gem! It was a perfect setting for our last days in Costa Rica. Enjoying the beaches, listening to the ocean surf, watching the surfers and the amazing sunsets from the outdoor patio...Thank you Vincente for the coconut water, the conversations and stories, the fire by the beach...all things that made our holidays so special. Pura Vida!
