About the owner: When I saw this property, I could not help but buy it, the proceeded to build the house, gave up my life in London and moved to Mal Pais full time. Because I realized the soul and rhythm of this place is so energizing you may wish to never go back. I never did!
Why the Owner Chose Malpais: The Mal Pais area of Costa Rica is unique in that climate wise we have the most temperate weather conditions...not too wet, not too dry...just right!
The beaches in the area stretch for around 15kms and have something for everyone.
Probably one of the most outstanding beachfront areas on the Pacific side of Costa Rica
The Unique Benefits at this House: The house is all about understated luxury set in beautiful grounds with tropical gardens and beachfront.A private haven set on a virtually private little bay. When you are here you quickly acclimatize to the tranquil rhythm of the surrounding fauna and flora. At the end of your stay you will more than likely not want to leave! :-)
