Malpais house description

Please note: We update our calendar daily.

***Our private yoga shala is completed! For those of you looking to practice yoga, surf, and stay somewhere with outstanding views in one of the The Top 10 Beaches in the World (Santa Teresa/Mal Pais, Forbes Magazine, 2010) this is the place for YOU!!***

BIG NEWS!! THE ROAD UP THE HILL TO OUR HOUSE IS NOW COMPLETELY GRADED AND RESEALED.

Casa Toucanet gets it's name from the colorful toucanet birds that frequent the fruit trees on this beautiful property. The house sits atop a small hill approximately 215 ft. above sea level and a 10 minute walk from Playa Mal Pais and a 20 minute walk to Santa Teresa and Playa Santa Teresa. This vacation home has the view, location, jungle scenery, and privacy we love. We selected this home for this very reason. The home was completely remodeled in 2013 and it has a bright and airy feel. The bedrooms are air conditioned but sleeping with the doors and windows open is an option that allows you to hear the gentle roar of the ocean and the early morning sounds of the howler monkeys and parakeets.

The home has a small living room, a full kitchen, dining room,an outside patio downstairs, 2 1/2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms and a scenic porch upstairs. All of the doors and windows in the house are custom made from teak. The upstairs floor is also teak and the downstairs floor is finished with a mosaic tile.

The property also has a separate two story casita where Mike and Jess live. They are a great young couple from Virginia who will be happy to assist you during your stay and coordinate any tours or activities you desire. Surfing lessons and Private Yoga can be arranged through them! They are fluent in Spanish and can help you with any local information of your interest.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Meet our property managers Mikey and Jess Mausteller. Mike is an accomplished surfer, surf instructor and tour guide. Jess is a certified yoga teacher. Jess instructs and practices daily in Santa Teresa and is also available for private classes at our private yoga shala.

Why the Owner Chose Malpais:
We purchased this property because it was away, but not too far away, from the center of activity in Santa Teresa. It's on a small hill at the end of a short and very private road and the views are exceptional. The house needed remodeling so we were able to make the modifications to make it 'ours'. It's not fancy but it is bright, clean and has everything you would need to enjoy your time away from home. The huge bonus we were not expecting was meeting Mike and Jess. They have been coming every winter to Mal Pais for 6 years and now we are doing everything we can to keep them there year round.
