Recent Malpais reviews

  • Loved every minute

    "My dream came true - always wanted to visit Costa Rica and for my 40th my husband arranged everything. We spent 2 weeks in paradise. Our first week was by the Arenal volcano then to the beach area of Mal Pais. We spent 6 nights in this beautiful house - the house and property was just breathtaking. We absolutely enjoyed staying there, the property was so lush with tropical plants and so many trees - I am not a "pool" person, but the saltwater pool surrounded by the palm trees changed my way of thinking! We loved how the whole house could be opened up to feel the breezes, view the scenery and hear the wildlife (could hear some howler monkeys and saw them 3 times). The area was perfect for us, not too close and not too far from anything. The beach is about a 5 minute drive, there are great restaurants and 2 nights we used the the grill to cook fish we caught, and we even had breakfast 3 of the mornings at the house - grocery stores close by and the kitchen had everything we needed. One of my favorite parts of the trip and what I will truly miss is how beautiful the night sky is there. Stargazing there is amazing, especially from the 3rd floor open balcony on those unique hanging beds! For me this trip was a dream come true and this house, area, people did not disappoint. Also, have to mention that Jose the caretaker was so pleasant and helpful, we were unfortunately were a little late on arrival and he was so gracious about that."

  • Beyond SPECTACULAR!

    "I can honestly say that this home was the most SPECTACULAR home we have ever rented through VRBO. the pictures really do not show how truly amazing this property is! All four bedrooms are equally spectacular, balconies and hammocks with comfortable furniture to lounge in . The beds are comfortable and the open air with ceiling fans are all that is needed. You do not need air conditioning in this home. The infinity pool overlooking the ocean is incredible. I never wanted to get out of it! The sunken large kitchen is well appointed, and the outdoor living space is top notch, and also very comfortable. Marley and Rey the resident dogs are so sweet and are never a bother. The owner Daniel is present only to care for the dogs and keep his beautiful landscaping watered. It truly is paradise. The driveway is however very steep.....so be carefull if you've had a few too many cocktails in the pool! I do not recommend walking to the beach... Going down the drive is ok, it's the coming back up that is killer! We did have a very large beetle in our bathroom sink one morning....but with the openness of the house I expected a few critters, and we only had a few. I hope to return to villa montmeru at another time. It truly was a vacation I will always remember!"

  • OUTSTANDING!!

    "My man and I stayed there for three days in April. How we loved this place and truly the best part of our Costa Rica trip! We did not want to leave and hope to return again one day to stay longer. It is the most unique and wonderful place to stay. Every thing you could need: great, large always hot shower; kitchen where we made breakfast and the fish we caught for dinner one night, not to mention the most comfortable bed we experienced during our entire trip. We had breakfast every morning out on the balcony. Beautiful beach only a few minutes away, along with zip lining and fishing very close by. The owners are outstanding and the entire experience was wonderful. Highly recommend!"

  • Snowbirds

    "A tranquil retreat away from the beach but with brilliant pool overlooking the sea. Sit & watch the sunset plus the stars in the evenings. Plenty of birds & monkeys to observe nearby during the day. Excellent support from the staff, Soyaya gave good advice, the cleaner Elena was thorough & discreet & the on site caretaker gave the pool daily attention & was very pleasant. We truly enjoyed our 3 weeks here."
