About the Property
Quiet And Relaxing Home With Spectacular Views
***Our private yoga shala is completed! For those of you looking to practice yoga, surf, and stay somewhere with outstanding views in one of the The Top 10 Beaches in the World (Santa Teresa/Mal Pais, Forbes Magazine, 2010) this is the place for YOU!!**
Casa Toucanet gets it's name from the colorful toucanet birds that frequent the fruit trees on this beautiful property. The house sits atop a small hill approximately 215 ft. above sea level and a 10 minute walk from Playa Mal Pais and a 20 minute walk to Santa Teresa and Playa Santa Teresa. This vacation home has the view, location, jungle scenery, and privacy we love. We selected this home for this very reason. The home was completely remodeled in 2013 and it has a bright and airy feel. The bedrooms are air conditioned but sleeping with the doors and windows open is an option that allows you to hear the gentle roar of the ocean and the early morning sounds of the howler monkeys and parakeets.
The home has a small living room (sala) and the sofa is a twin bed that will accommodate an additional person, a full kitchen, dining area, an outside patio downstairs, 2 1/2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms and a scenic veranda upstairs. All of the doors and windows in the house are custom made from teak. The upstairs floor is also teak and the downstairs floor is finished with a custom made mosaic tile.
The property also has a separate two story casita where our on-site caretaker lives. We will be happy to assist your during your stay and coordinate any tours or activities you desire.

Year Purchased: 2013
Why the Owner Chose Malpais, Costa Rica:
We purchased this property because it was away, but not too far away, from the center of activity in Santa Teresa. It's on a small hill at the end of a short and very private road and the views are exceptional. The house needed remodeling so we were able to make the modifications to make it 'ours'. It's not fancy but it is bright, clean and has everything you would need to enjoy your time away from home.
