About the property

3 Bedroom Ocean View Villa with Infinity Pool, BBQ, A/C, wifi, housekeeping.

This architectural masterpiece sits above the famous beaches of Mal Pais, Playa Carmen and Santa Teresa. The curved shape of the roof is inspired by the rolling waves of the Pacific that are visible from almost every inch of this amazing ocean view home. The ceiling reaches heights of over 18 feet allowing for cool air to circulate and the ocean breezes to enter.

Located in Mal Pais, the Wave House is just a short drive away from the beach at Playa Carmen and the town of Santa Teresa.

Located in Mal Pais, the Wave House is just a short drive away from the beach at Playa Carmen and the town of Santa Teresa. This beautiful ocean view home features 3 air conditioned bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms (including 1 special open air jungle view bathroom). There is also an additional loft area above the living room that is perfect for kids or additional guests with 2 double beds. The large infinity swimming pool is just steps away from the living room and covered patio. The pool is surrounded by lush jungle and there are barely any neighbors in sight so you’ll find this to be the perfect hillside getaway with your private and undisturbed ocean views.

The house is totally private and you have access to all rooms and amplious outside area, except the storage and cleaning room of the housekeeper.

I live just a few minutes down the road. I am available for any help you need, depending on your personal needs. You can always ask me for more info, quotes or recommendations for activities, restaurants, transport, surfboard rentals, etc.. Happy to help!

Casa Wave is located in Mal Pais next to the amazing nature of Cabo Blanco and still within some minutes drive to the first supermarkets, restaurants, beach, surf and the strip of Santa Teresa. Upon arrival I will show you the map and give you some recommendations.

A rental car or ATV is recommended. Taxis are available as well but a rental is the ideal way to get around. I am happy to arrange a car or ATV for you with the discounts I have.

-The villa is also designed for retreats (yoga, meditation, etc.). Feel free to ask for more info. We are happy to help with organisation of catering, transport, activities, etc..

About Casa Wave Costa Rica

The land was purchased twenty years ago when I first began visiting the small villages of Santa Teresa and Malpais and there was nothing but jungle around me! So, I finally built this house for me as a art studio - as I am an artist based in Paris and Corsica, 1/2 US, 1/2 Caribbean parentage -just in the last two years. The houses reflects my artistic sensibilities and desire to be at one with nature and disturb as little as possible to this virgin jungle.

Casa Wave Costa Rica purchased this villa in 2012

Why Casa Wave Costa Rica chose Malpais

Because no one else dared build so high up, yet so close to the ocean! There were no roads when I first visited this site! I had them all put in - and now there are a few hotels and homes (but out of sight), while my site is still a protected jungle with views overlooking the sea and down the coast to the most protected nature preserve on Earth: the Cabo Blanco Nature Preserve!

What makes this villa unique

Just minutes by car to the village where there are many new restaurants and shops, while at the same time the original flavor of this fishing and surf town has remained unchanged. The breathtaking views and the nice cross air flow makes it comfortable even in the hot season!

The house was beautiful; clean, spacious and comfortable. Magnificent views!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Wave was fantastic! Andreas, our amazing host, went out of his way to arrange surfing lessons for our group, and provided quads for us to use during our stay; he recommended all the best restaurants and went out of his way to ensure we had the best stay, even meeting us late at night when we arrived after 11pm. Could not have asked for a kinder or more considerate host! We very much enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend Casa Wave as a travel destination. The roads were a bit difficult to navigate, especially at night, and we were glad he recommended 4-wheel drive vehicles.

The house itself was beautifully decorated and stylish; the views were fantastic, the pool refreshing, and the monkeys never ceased to amuse and entertain!

The wifi was iffy at best, but for those looking for a jungle and beach getaway without the hustle and bustle of city life, Casa Wave is a top choice. Thanks Andreas!

This is a fantastic residence

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great time. Andrea, Luis and Reina were very kind to us. I had hurt my leg prior to arrival and they made special accomodations to help me enjoy the stay. The house is a one of a kind with spacious environs and a downstairs apartment. The infinity pool overlooks the ocean and the fabulous sunset every night. We had visits from colonies of capuchin and howler monkeys during our stay. They drifted right by the rear of the property. The night sky is brilliant overhead. We saw many satellites zooming by in the sky. It is about a two mile drive to town. The hill to the house is bumpy but worth it.

Amazing Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six truly enjoyed our stay at Casa Wave. Andreas the concierge was so friendly, helpful and intuitive. What a surprise it was to arrive at the house with the rental car in the driveway and the Budget Car representative sitting at the picnic table ready with the paperwork, all after business hours. This saved us a trip the next morning to pickup the car at the Santa Teresa office! Andreas had also stocked the house with fresh fruit, bottled water and a few key groceries in the refrigerator, which was so appreciated after a long day of travel! The house was spacious, relaxing and well laid out. All the beds were very comfortable, with high quality mattresses and pillows. Be sure to try the outdoor master bedroom shower, a very unique experience! The pool and view were amazing. On a full moon night we viewed a spectacular fireworks display down in Santa Teresa. One afternoon a troop of curious capuchin monkeys entertained us with their antics. We prepared many delicious meals using the well-equipped kitchen and the outdoor grill. One of the highlights of our trip was catching a 20 pound red snapper and then exchanging some of the fish for yellow fin tuna caught the same day by guests staying at Andreas' hotel--so much delicious fresh fish to eat! If you do go fishing, be sure to ask for Pequeno, he's very friendly and a great fisherman! Since we've been coming to MalPais, we always visit Adrian at Ollies Adventures in Santa Teresa to book outings, rent surfboards and a quad. For a memorable experience, dine at sunset at nearby Caricola's restaurant, located right on the shore. Casa Wave was a great place to call home during our vacation!
