"My review will certainly not do this home justice you really need to see it to believe it. Everything about this home is incredible and it's so peaceful even my 12 year old son enjoyed every moment here. You really won't want to leave, the infinity pool is wonderful, you could sit in it all day long watching the howler monkeys who visited on a daily basis. The home is impeccable with the best decor. The location to Playa Hermosa was very close and even though we didn't want to leave the house ever, it was well worth the trip down the road. The local restaurant Dayka was terrific and so affordable, its a must try! Everything you would need is in Cobano which is just a short car ride away. Rolando the gardener was so nice, we enjoyed knowing there was someone around the property if we ever needed anything. The housekeeper was so efficient we hardly ever saw her. We can't forget to mention Flaco the grounds dog, so cute, he came for a visit everyday which we enjoyed. The only other venture we did was an afternoon trip to Santa Theresa and ate at Habeneros on the beach, stunning and delicious food! We can't wait to go back, this house is a gem and so are the owners. Thank you again for opening up your wonderful home, this made for a wonderful trip and a lifetime of memories!"

"We cannot say enough about how great this home is. We live in Costa Rica and were looking to get away and relax and this is exactly what we got! The home is located up on the hill with a beautiful view of the ocean. You are just far enough away but still close enough to run into town if you need to. The house is just perfect for a couple and has all the amenities needed to be comfortable while away from home. The infinity pool and outdoor living space is where we spent the majority of our time. Francisco is on site to take care of the pool and grounds and is very nice. We cannot say enough about Soraya that manages the property. She came and met us and took us to the house, as we arrived late and it was dark out. We had numerous car issues and all we had to do was call her and she was there to help. We broke down and she came and rescued us! She was so helpful with places to eat, helping us get around town, car rental, directions and a mechanic! You will not be disappointed with your stay here if you are looking to get away and enjoy some needed relaxation."

"I stayed at this lodge for a very short period, but I did not want to leave. It is the most peaceful place to stay at. Granted that I was there during the low season, but I also know that Mal Pais doesn't get flooded with tourists as other towns in the area, so it's pretty quiet with rock-free beaches. The lodge itself is very clean and the open concept is just a unique and beautiful feature of it, making it aesthetically very pleasing and enjoyable. It has all the necessary furniture, appliances (even a blender)...the owners are very friendly and warm people!"

"We live locally in San Jose and wanted a weekend escape during the off-season to Malpais. We had a perfect stay in this gorgeous house! What a view indeed -- it's like 180-degree view of the ocean.
It is a steep climb but that's the price for a beautiful view. We had a 4x4 SUV and it was not a problem.
The inside is crisp and modern and I wish my kitchen was this size at home! But the main attraction is the outdoor terrace and infinity pool, where we spent the bulk of our time...lounging, relaxing and soaking up nature: butterflies and greenry.
The rooms are really big, and our friends who joined us and stayed in one of the bungalows loved how cozy it was. And they said there is an ocean view everywhere...from the bed, even from the bathroom!
We will totally recommend this property to friends who are looking for a piece of paradise, and we'll be back!"
