                              • Beachfront teak built house, situated in a palm tree garden on the beach in rocky MalPais. Our house is naturally cooled by the sea breeze. Sea Ranch is never hot. always airy. Beautiful freshwater waterfalls and canopying near by up the rainforest - surfing and sunbathing at the white long beaches to the left towards Santa Teresa. Here you will enjoy a romantic vacation in the most peaceful part 15 minutes away from buzzing Santa Teresa. Private - but still close to it all. The breathtaking views from our house, garden and beach ground will make you understand, that this simply is Paradise. While watching the sunset from your hammock or in one of the fresh seawater pools on the rocks you will not ask for anything more. ...moreless

                                Sandcastle is the perfect hideaway if You want to enjoy Your vacation in a 'authentic' way. I went there in March with 3 girlfriends, all welltravelled women. We wanted to enjoy the breathtaking nature, sunsets and the eazy life, including yoga on the outside deck where we also had the most wonderful massage. The owners will recommend yoga teatchers and massage therapists that come to the house, and the prices are very good. The house is extremely charming and holds everything You need, with very kind caretakers who are there for You if You need something extra. One of my girlfrinds and I stayed in the guestroom, and enjoyed the sound of the birds and the howling monkeys, as well as the sound of the ocean, just there by the end of the garden. Sunsets were enjoyed right there on the beach every evening - stunning. I will recommend the house for 'everybody' as both senoirs, families and a handfull of friends will be able to enjoy the beautiful house and the fantastic nature surrounding it. I mark it 'excellent' the price considered - You are truly 'Far and Away' in this great house.

                                I had an amazing time in this lovely beach house! Words can't describe how it feels to watch the worlds most beautiful sunset from your terrace, all the while wild horses are passing by on the beach! The house itself is cosy and has alle the things you need on your vacation. It is kept very, very clean and is looked after by two very helpful and sweet caretakers. I would reccomend this house to everyone who wants to get away and discover paradise

                                The Sand Castle was my favorite place I stayed at during my stay in the Santa Teresa region. It offered a more excluded and private living then the other places I lodged at, yet being only minutes from the 'city center'. Much less people passing by on the beach, breathtaking scenery and locally integrated care takers. With their hospitality my time felt much more authentic and made me feel like i experienced the pura vida lifestyle. Waking up in the master bedroom upstairs with the ocean right infront will probably never leave my memory...!

                                Rarely do you find a place that far exceeds your expectations, The Sand Castle was that place. Had a wonderful week with my 2 teenagers and Brother. Although not fancy per say, it is in no way run down or lacking in any way. Close to town without being in town, directly on the water, flawless wifi, tons of linens, perfect kitchen for cooking with everything you could need. Monkeys and amazing bird life on the property! Sussie was easily reachable and the lovely couple that takes care of property were very helpful and sweet. Will be back as soon as humanly possible!!

                                We had heard a lot of good things about the Nicoya Peninsula, but discovering this unique property - and Santa Teresa as such - was still an eye opener. I thought that places as undisturbed and "off the beaten path" had ceased to exist. But here it is, and quite affordable at that. Walk the incredible Pacific beach in the early morning, and you will feel as Robinson - or Robinsonia - Crusoe. It is that quiet and peaceful! Party time can be found in Santa Teresa - but you will have to look for it - it won't crowd you. No bad creeps, two legged or more. Bug spray will keep you good in the season! Eat out. The restaurants are amazing, diverse and very resonably priced. This house itself is everything you long for, if you fantasize about understated luxury, rustic charm and privacy. You are in the jungle, within spitting distance of the Pacific - and still within walking distance from the shops. What more do you really need?

                                We spend four great weeks at this - in all ways - fantastic house! The house itself is located 5 minutes away from the Crossroad in Mal Pais and is placed right down to the beach, with palm tress and hammocks to relax in. And it's only a few minutes away from a really good surfing spot. The house has a very cosy atmosphere with several bedrooms and a new kitchen with all the cooking things we needed. Great house keepers, they helped us with lots of different stuff and were so friendly! The house is very very very clean and we recommend this house to everyone who wants a perfect vacation in Costa Rica!

                                I just came back from a absolutely perfect month of surfing and relaxing in Santa Teresa, maybe the coolest place i have been for many years. This house is very cosy, nothing fancy, but really good value for money compared to the area. Is perfectly secluded, private, and with a absolutely stunning view of the small bay. The dramatic rocks and the ocean just in front of the house was simply an amazing experience. I can truly recommend this place!

                              Why the Owner Chose Malpais:
                              This whole area is special! Not surprisingly the beaches around were recently voted 'The Most Beautiful in Central and South America' by Trip Advisor. Unspoilt, endlessly long and white, our beach has the feeling untouched nature that today's visitor seeks. We had traveled all over Hawaii, Mexico, The Caribbean and Asia seeking a little piece of paradise. We found it here!

                              One of the few properties right on the beach in Mal Pais
