About Leslie Murray

Love to surf and the beach, I have traveled many places in Central America. Finally I built our beautiful house here on the Nicoyan Peninsula 3 years ago from the ground up! We have been bringing our daughter here since she was a baby. It's a special vacation home for us and we hope you will enjoy it too!

A jungle dream house

  • 5 of 5

This place was a dream come true! Everything about it was perfect. We got to wake up every morning to the sound of the jungle. The rooms were super comfortable, the pool perfect for a dip to cool off. The town and beach was a short drive away. Laurie the property manager was wonderful. She answered all our questions and was there if we needed anything. Me and my girlfriend can not wait to go back!

Amazing Home in a Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely beautiful! It is close to town and the beach but located up in the mountains surrounded by the jungle so it is peaceful and quiet. the home has everything you need, a large kitchen perfect for cooking, beautiful bedrooms and bathrooms, a great pool with lounge chairs, and monkeys in the trees if you're lucky! The owners of the home are wonderful and the property manager was very helpful. She met us upon arrival to give us a tour of the property, answer questions about the area, and give us sightseeing tips. We definitely recommend this home to anyone looking for a beautiful place to stay!

Heavenly house , private, peaceful location, pool

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed at the house in March 2016 and had a fantastic stay! It had everything we needed and more. It is close to the beach, stores, bank, restaurants and grocery store and the owners and the property manager were very helpful. The manager met us at the house upon our arrival, showed us around and answered questions we had about our trip and what we wanted. This was very helpful and she was easily contacted for any other questions or needs we may have. I especially liked the deck area and pool.. watching sunrises and sunsets with the monkeys and many birds in the trees was AMAZING. I would definitely recommend it to friends and come back for another stay. I have been to Santa Teresa/Mal Pais area 3 times and I have found the place for me to stay from now on. It also comes with a house keeper who cleans everyday and keeps you in fresh towels and her husband who fixes any problems you have with the house. FANTASTIC all around!

All i can say is thank god we had this beautiful place to return to at the end of the long, hot, dusty day! I was not prepared for the dust or the heat of santa teresa..or the big spiders for that matter..but this lovely place was such a great place to come back to, it made our stay far more enjoyable than i think it would have been. Laurie, Johnny and Jenny were all very helpful, wonderful people and helped us with everything from lighting the barbq to booking a ride to the airport for us. I would definitely stay at this vrbo again, but for us, the heat is a definite deterrent..would have to come in the green season i think. One possible drawback, or at least something for future renters to be aware of..and leslie the owner will tel, you, is you ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE A 4X4 TO GET UP THE DRIVEWAY!! Our last night there was awesome as we got to see 6 howlers, 2 toucans, our usual giant cane toad, the usual bats and little lizards..tons of wildlife! Pura vida for sure!

Amazing Experience

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing home. Two minutes from Playa Carmen and the beach. Nestled in the mountain side for peace and quiet, it is perfectly appointed with everything you need. Lounge at the pool or head down to the beach. Close to restaurants and grocery store. Zac and Leslie the owners are a pleasure to deal with. Laurie the property manager is amazing once you are there. From start to finish a great experience. Looking forward to booking this property again.

Perfect, private and brand new!

  • 5 of 5

Ive been to Santa Teresa/Mal Pais 7xs and stayed at some of the most expensive resorts and houses there...found my heaven! The house is brand new! Amazing views and very private. My fiancé, his father and I stayed in the home. The rooms are placed perfectly to have privacy and they had their own patio to rejoin at the pool. The view is amazing! Every day rain or shine 5pm, large groups of whitefaced and howler monkeys cross right in front! There are toucans in the morning and gorgeous butterflies all day. Afternoon rains would come in and the mist would settle in the distance like a fairy tale! Best part is this is the amazing array of animals can be watched from inside the living room or sitting in the pool! Located up the street from the Mal Pais/Santa Tersea cross road, as well as the road to Cobano/Montezuma and there is absolutely no dust. This place is secure and quiet, you can make noise and have silence. Kitchen is very practical and huge. This is Pura Vida indeed!!!
