Malpais villa description


A unique beachfront property with the most undisturbed views of the ocean in the whole Mal Pais and Santa Teresa area. Walking distance to/from downtown Santa Teresa but devoid of crowds. Located in the quiet heart of Mal Pais, this unique tropical, teak villa - SEA RANCH - gives you total privacy on your own one acre beachfront estate with resident caretaker. The Sand Castle offers dramatic ocean views, full kitchen and two bedrooms plus a private separate guesthouse.
Sea Ranch is rustic, yet luxurious. We supply fine linens and are attentive to our guests every need. We offer Yoga tuition and Surf lessons as well as help with transfers from San Jose and Tambor. The villa is within very short walking distance to surfing.
Lots of monkeys, exotic birds are drawn to the villa by our many mango trees, bananas and coconut palms. Just in front of the house you can enjoy private and natural full-size saltwater pools.

                      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.
