Malpais villa description

Casa Luna Luz is a private and tranquil estate, ideal for a couple or couple with small children. The home sits on a hilltop above the towns of Mal Pais and Santa Teresa. It offers 180 degree spectacular views of the ocean, at over 800' above sea level, but close enough to hear the sounds of the surf below. The home was completed in 2010 so it is completely furnished with new appliances and furniture. The estate offers you a perfect private spot to get away, yet close enough to town and surf breaks to enjoy all the pleasures of visiting Mal Pais, Santa Teresa, and other close by towns.

There is an on-site caretaker to make sure all the details are perfect. We provide daily house cleaning and laundry as part of the service. A property manager lives in Mal Pais and is easily available for any and all questions.

We just completed a brand new infinity pool on the property. Relax and swim in the beautiful pool and look at the ocean and the jungle birds fly past.

We (the owners) live here 2 months a year, and have been coming for over a decade. This is our retreat and second home, ...and for the first time, we are sharing all its beauty with others.
We invite you to slow your life down, listen to the sounds of nature everywhere, and relax to experience what we have come to love so dearly.....paradise!... Enjoy yourself and have a wonderful vacation!

Keywords: Large Private Property, Spectacular Ocean Views, Infinity Pool, On-site caretaker/house cleaner. Perfect for a couple or family with 2 children.

                      You can watch the monkeys and tropical birds fly by in this house. It also is located on a road that is rarely used but goes through the jungle. It is amazing for viewing local wildlife (which is abundant) and running/hiking/mountain biking.

                      Year Purchased: 2004

                      About: I grew up in New England, currently reside in Sonoma County CA., and first visited Costa Rica in 1999, traveled all over the counrty exploring and surfing, found Mal Pais, and Santa Teresa, and never left!..Its magic....bought the land buit a small house, and lived in it for awhile then two years agod we did a total high end remodel. It is our treasure, our santuary, our retirement, and our childrens future. Blessings and Gratitude.

                      Why Malpais:
                      The views are stunning. It is so quiet and private, no road noise. All you can hear and see is nature. The sounds of the waves crashing below is sooo soothing, and the night sky simply takes your breath away.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                      There are not many new hilltop, private, luxurious, secure, locations with a salt water infinity pool in Mal Pais or Santa Teresa, and at the price point we have chosen. . From our driveway, you can take the old road that winds for miles through the forest and jungle. You will see beautiful old farms, new private estates, monkeys, amazing birds, Chameleons, and Iguanas, trees so old you'll be amazed,.. foliage and flowers...the list go on and on.
