Property description

Casa Luna Luz is a private and tranquil estate, ideal for a couple or couple with small children. The home sits on a hilltop above the towns of Mal Pais and Santa Teresa. It offers 180 degree spectacular views of the ocean, at over 800' above sea level, but close enough to hear the sounds of the surf below. The home was completed in 2010 so it is completely furnished with new appliances and furniture. The estate offers you a perfect private spot to get away, yet close enough to town and surf breaks to enjoy all the pleasures of visiting Mal Pais, Santa Teresa, and other close by towns.

There is an on-site caretaker to make sure all the details are perfect. We provide daily house cleaning and laundry as part of the service. A property manager lives in Mal Pais and is easily available for any and all questions.

We just completed a brand new infinity pool on the property. Relax and swim in the beautiful pool and look at the ocean and the jungle birds fly past.

We (the owners) live here 2 months a year, and have been coming for over a decade. This is our retreat and second home, ...and for the first time, we are sharing all its beauty with others.
We invite you to slow your life down, listen to the sounds of nature everywhere, and relax to experience what we have come to love so dearly.....paradise!... Enjoy yourself and have a wonderful vacation!

Keywords: Large Private Property, Spectacular Ocean Views, Infinity Pool, On-site caretaker/house cleaner. Perfect for a couple or family with 2 children.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2000

About: I grew up in New England, currently reside in Sonoma County CA., and first visited Costa Rica in 1998, traveled all over the counrty exploring and surfing, found Mal Pais, and Santa Teresa, and never left!..Its magic....bought the land buit a small house, and lived in it for awhile then in 2000 we began to remodel and upgrade as It is such a treasure, a santuary, a one of kind property. Blessings and Gratitude.

Why Malpais, Costa Rica:
The views are stunning. It is so quiet and private, no road noise. All you can hear and see is nature. The sounds of the waves crashing below is sooo soothing, and the night sky simply takes your breath away. Sunsets and moon rises are magic, every day it seems.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
There are not many new hilltop, private, luxurious, secure, locations with a salt water infinity pool in Mal Pais or Santa Teresa, and at the price point we offer. From the driveway, you can take the old road that winds for miles through the forest and jungle. You will see beautiful old farms, new private estates, monkeys, amazing birds, Chameleons, and Iguanas, trees so old you'll be amazed,.. foliage and flowers...the list go on and on. There is quite an abundance of wildlife right at your door step.
