About Naomi Errico/Scott Young

Why Naomi Errico/Scott Young chose Malpais
Mal Pais is the most beautiful and peaceful place we had ever been to, we wanted to be part of it. Our property is a jewel nestled privately in the jungle, a short walk away from the beach.

I picked this property on a whim without doing much research on location because I was so impressed by the photos. The rest of the plans fell into place after that, and it couldn’t have turned out to be a better vacation. My husband, myself and our 4 kids (15, 13, 10 and 9) had the most amazing experience and thoroughly enjoyed an adventurous, relaxing and fun vacation. The property was the best part of it all. It was the perfect retreat after a long morning of adventure. The kids could come back to swim and have lunch before heading down to the beach to swim some more.
Ruth, our concierge (and one of the nicest people I have ever met), took care of making arrangements and booking our day trips. She arranged for us to have ATV’s for the week, zip lining/canopy tour, waterfall hikes and delicious restaurant recommendations. Best of all, I didn’t realized a massage was included. I got the most amazing poolside massage from Ruth, probably one of the best I have ever had!
If this is your first trip to Costa Rica, this is the perfect house. You will be well taken care of and have the privacy and independence that you would not get at a resort. It is the perfect distance to downtown town and surrounding adventures.
Thank you Ruth and Naomi for the wonderful accommodations!
Thank you so much for taking the time to write such an awesome and detailed review of your stay at Casa de Noni.
We work very hard to make sure to create an all around vacation to make it easy for you to enjoy the country.
Ruth truly enjoyed your family during your holiday, she said you were awesome to have as guests. Please know that your family would be welcomed back in a heartbeat.
Loved the home and the area! There were 5 of us including two teens and everyone had a great time.
The property was great - hidden away on a hill with beautiful greenery around it and fun wildlife. Ruth was a tremendous help with planning outings and getting to know the area. I highly recommend Casa de Noni and the Mal Pais area for anyone looking for an off-the-beaten-path vacation!
Thank you so much for your review. Your description of our property is great, and it lends itself to privacy and fun. I was pleased to hear you had such a great time with your family, and that Ruth was such a big help to you. Please make sure that you find the opportunity to come and visit us again.
Nice House but ...
The house is lovely but if you are looking for a 1st world experience, this is not your place. The power goes out almost everyday and I did not see that posted in previous reviews. The first evening that it went out and we were thrown in total darkness, I would have expected that Ruth would have come over or contacted us to let us know what was going on and what to do, but we were left to walking around with flashlights. Sometimes it went out in the morning when you are making your coffee, sometimes at night when it is 90 degrees and then you have no AC. The roads are terrible and we live on dirt roads in the States. They were so dusty that you could not rent 4 wheelers unless you had full respirators.
It was nice to sit on the deck in the morning and watch the monkeys come through. There are cute, free range dogs that visit regularly and we did learn their names and enjoyed their company. The pool is nice, the kitchens are well stocked, and the beds comfortable. The biggest drawback was the poor infrastructure in power and roads.
I loved our stay. The house, location, pool, wildlife. Everything was perfect

Anna, Thank you for your review, and I’m glad you loved the house. I hope you get the opportunity to come again to visit Mal Pais. Noni
Stunning home in the jungle.
Beautiful home, once arrived even more beautiful than the pictures. Our favorite was relaxing on the big deck every morning and evening in the leather and wood rocking chairs while the teenagers lounged in the pool. We bbq'd a few nights, and played cards at the outside table. The teenagers lounged down stairs most of the time, making use of their own kitchen and hang out area which gave us parents a quiet serene main floor. The master bedroom was large with a comfortable king bed and plenty of space for our luggage and clothes. The girls took the large bedroom downstairs with more than enough room for all their stuff. The bathrooms were very nicely done. Both kitchens stocked with appliances. Every day around 3:30 the monkeys would migrate by, perfect view from the deck. The birds were beautiful, new ones I'd never seen before visiting on the deck rail in the mornings and chirping away. One of the best perks about this vacation home is the owner Noni and onsite concierge Ruth. From the first email to the owner I knew I was in good hands. She responded immediately and over the next three months answered every question I had promptly. (and I had a lot, as we had never been and I was traveling with 4 teenagers. I was very nervous!) She recommended the best way to travel to their home, and even set up a driver to come get us. Ruth is onsite and she was amazing! Before we left I booked a flight hop to get us back to San Jose (Highly recommended, it was a stunning 20min flight) and the agent sent the confirmation had our family name wrong. I asked Ruth for help and she called the airline and fixed it for me. She set up all our activities and recommended the best things to do. Our favorite was the atv ride up to Montezuma falls. I also loved snorkeling at secret beach. (I bought a snorkel set from costco and brought it with us.) Having her there made our trip so relaxing, knowing she could help us with anything. If you are thinking of going to Costa Rica, this is the place to go. The beautiful home and the support of the owner and concierge made this a bucket list trip to remember.
"Heidi, Thank you so much for taking the time to write such an awesome review. I am so glad you had such a great experience in Costa Rica, and at our home. It's great that you had the opportunity to rest and relax, even with four teenagers in your group, well done. Ruth made sure to let me know how awesome your family was, and how easy it was to work with you. I hope we see you again in our Mal Pais community, you will always be welcome there. Noni"
Off the beaten path, but what a beautiful path!
Our family of five had a terrific stay at Casa de Noni. As several reviewers have mentioned, this place isn't for everyone because of its remoteness, but if you'd like to immerse yourself in Costa Rican culture in one of the most beautiful spots we've ever seen, this is absolutely the place for you. Our favorite activities were ziplining at Canopy Malpais, horseback riding, fishing with Pequeno, and our trip to Montezuma to jump and swim at the waterfalls. The pool at the house was perfect for the whole family and we spent a ton of time in it! A couple of the local restaurants were absolutely delicious - Mary's (walking distance) and Caracola's (a five minute drive), and the perfect lunch spot in Playa Carmen, called Product (C). Truly an experience for all of us where the memories will last forever.
Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review. I love to hear that your family enjoyed the true Costa Rican experience. You are correct, Casa de Noni is kinda remote, but close enough to everything you'll need, that's why we truly love it.
Hope we see your family again in Mal Pais.
