About the Property

4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Villa Montemeru offers simple yet sophisticated and elegant accommodations. You enjoy magnificent views of the Pacific ocean from nearly every angle, with sunsets to die for. The house is custom furnished with beds, tables, chairs and closets in various tropical hardwoods. There are altogether four bedrooms, each with private entrance, private bathroom and balcony or terrace. All beds come with top of the line mattresses and 100% cotton linens. The windows and French doors are oversize and offer stunning ocean views. Three bedrooms have one king size bed each, while the fourth has two queen size beds. The master bedroom features a 42" wall-mounted flat panel Smart TV with Satellite TV reception. All bedrooms have ceiling fans that keep the interior cool at all times. The bathrooms are tiled in either ceramic, marble or natural stone, with eclectic accents that give each of them a unique look. Solar hot water systems automatically switch to electricity in the rare event that there isn't enough sun. The ground floor includes the sunken kitchen, a pavilion style dining and recreational area and the infinity pool. The kitchen comes with high quality cookware, appliances and an espresso machine. The crystal clear pool is maintained with a minimum of chemicals and the water has no discernible chlorine smell. The property has park like surroundings with a variety of tropical fruit trees and flowering ornamental plants, butterflies and iguanas. Frequent visits by exotic birds and monkeys are to be expected. The sun sets in the Pacific ocean right in front and regales the visitor with a daily changing spectacle. Our guests enjoy absolute privacy in an atmosphere of exquisite tranquility. There are two lovely beaches within five walking minutes and four restaurants also within walking distance.

Daily cleaning service, except Saturday & Sunday. Gratuity not included in rates.

Mal País
Mal País, originally a sleepy fishing village at the northern periphery of Costa Rica's first National Park, the Riserva Absoluta Cabo Blanco, today still retains much of its original tranquility and picturesque charm. Just as in days past, the fishermen arrive each afternoon with their daily catch, which they offer to the public. You won't find fresher fish than that.

Santa Teresa, only a couple of miles up the road has all the hustle and bustle of a growing tourist attraction, with its hotels, restaurants, bars and shopping. But no matter how busy the main road, the beaches are always uncrowded, with a year round warm Pacific ocean in front and lush tropical vegetation behind. Malpaís is more residential. Only a handful of hotels and restaurants are found along the main road, but the hills are dotted with luxury homes and celebrity hideaways.

Being one of the premier surf destinations in Costa Rica, the waves are the main attraction that lure visitors. But other recreational opportunities abound. Horseback riding along the beach or in the hills, gliding through the rain forest canopy on zip lines, hiking, exotic bird watching or just lying on a quiet but not entirely secluded beach and getting that healthy tan, it all adds up to bliss.

For those looking for entertainment the area offers a wide variety of attractions such as various bars, full moon beach parties with international DJ's, Cafes and a weekly organic produce and flea market.

There's an abundance of outdoor yoga studios, massage therapists, chiropractor and other modalities.

There are good restaurants along the beaches and many cafes, as well as two European style bakeries and an Italian Gelato ice cream parlor. The southern Nicoya Peninsula combines breathtaking nature with high quality living. Come and enjoy it in the first class setting of Villa Montemeru and experience bliss.

Car: Recommended

Villa Montemeru is located in Mal País up on the first hill above the beach. We are 5 walking minutes from two beaches and about 5 driving minutes from the commercial center, where you find 2 banks, a pharmacy, rental car agencies, shopping, restaurants, a sushi bar, ice cream parlor, bars and entertainment. Our location is insofar ideal that we are not directly on the main road and therefore immune to traffic, noise and dust, yet only minutes away from all the action. The road that leads up to Villa Montemeru is private and well maintained all year round. The driveway leading up to the house is concrete. Once you arrive, you are immediately taken in by the panoramic views of the Pacific ocean beyond the rainforest.

Other Activities: Nearby activities include surfing, hiking, bird & monkey watching, sun bathing, canopy tours, kayaking, horseback riding, swimming, fine dining, salsa dancing and chilling.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: I see it as my mission to provide elegant comfort in exotic tropical surroundings, with a eco friendly approach to encourage and reassure the abundant wild life around Villa Montemeru.

Why the Owner Chose Malpais, Costa Rica:
We are on our own hill and enjoy panoramic views of the Pacific and the beaches to the north. None of the surrounding properties visually intrude and guests enjoy absolute privacy. You enjoy a continuous ocean breeze. Our rooms all have high ceilings with quality ceiling fans and oversize windows. They remain cool all year round. All bedrooms are furnished with custom made beds from exquisite tropical hardwoods. Unbeatable comfort for reasonable rates.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The Nicoya peninsula is one of a handful of designated Blue Zones in the world, with an above average population of centenarians. The high mineral content of the local water is credited with this benefit. While the hotels and houses a bit farther up north have to buy water from tanker trucks during high season, our location in close proximity of the Cabo Blanco National Park has the advantage of water being delivered to us from the Park. We have a high quality 2 stage water filter in the kitchen, which allows our guests to enjoy perfectly safe and fresh tasting water straight from the tap, instead of buying inferior bottled water.
