Recent Malpais reviews

  • Paradise

    "We visited the Santa Teresa/Mal Pais/Monteverde area for three weeks and this was our favorite place. If we did it over again, we would have stayed with Yan the entire time and if we ever go back, we will rent this house for a month. The other reviews wrote in detail about how beautiful the setting and house are--we agree with those sentiments 100%. Stop checking out other places--rent this house and you will not be sorry. I wish I had known when planning our trip how much better it is for a family to stay in Mal Pais over Santa Teresa. Mal Pais has a much better vibe. Thank you Yan for everything and we will most certainly be back to the March House."

  • Honeymoon in paradise!

    "Staying in this treehouse was a dream come true. My husband and I have always wanted a treehouse, so to stay in one in the middle of the jungle on our honeymoon was amazing. It is so cozy and comfortable. It gives you a home away from home feel, but in the trees! The family was so nice and welcoming. You are surronded by beautiful jungle and you are just a walk from the beach. We loved hanging out in the private pool watching the monkeys in the trees. We would totally go back! Maybe someday when we have kids! Kids would have a lot of fun I'm sure!"

  • Amazing...did I mention how Amazing?

    "First let me state that I have used many rentals through some sort of Rental by owner website and Daniel is by the far the most helpful, patient and kind owner we have rented from thus far. Though we were not able to meet him (booo, I wanted to thank him in person) he is a fantastic host. Thank you for everything. Now to the Villa, the pictures do not do this place justice. We rented this home to be the location for our 10-year wedding anniversary/vow renewal ceremony and I'm so glad I didn't go with a modern/Hollywood style beach home. This is pure Costa Rican Art/Architecture. We are spending 7 days here (yes still here) and our group( 5 adults) is simply amazed by this home. The pictures cannot show how large and beautiful each bedroom is, the staircase leading to each bedroom is something you would see out of a movie. Each bedroom has a private bath and shower, plus there is one on the lower level by the outdoor shower for when you are spending time by the pool or cooking in the kitchen. I am an avid cook and the kitchen was amazing. I was very impressed with the high quality cuisinart pots and pans with a layer of copper heat distribution. This is a major plus for those who love to cook. The views are amazing from all angles. You fall asleep to the sounds of various birds and awake to the howler monkeys in the distance. You will be visited by iguanas, bats, and insects but don't be discouraged..It's all part of being surrounded by jungle. Please be diligent with the compost bucket and garbage can. His property is beautiful with amazing tropical plants plus a greenhouse and the compost is needed. The hill to the house is beyond steep but we rented ATVs from Pacific Dirt Roads and had no problems going up the driveway in 2nd or 3rd gear. Lola and Carlos are wonderful staff and you will be truly amazed by this home, host, staff, the residential dogs who would followed me everywhere (Ray) especially, and the views. Please book..You will not be disappointed. One last thing, if you are worried about no AC, don't..being on a hill, with massive windows and the fans will keep you cool all night and sleep like a baby. Thank you again Daniel for everything, you and your home are both truly amazing. Pura Vida!!!"

  • Heaven on Earth

    "The word paradise only touches on describing this magical place. This breezy house of mahogany, awash with the scent of tropical flowers, this is the stuff dreams are made of. The abundant sunshine, the private beach just steps away, the chatter of wild parakeets that wake you in the morning, the breathtaking sunsets to wish you a goodnight, the magnificent tropical storms, the overwhelming sense of peace. All this and so much more make this place a true heaven on earth. I stayed for two weeks with my 6 year old son. It was an enchanted journey that we’ll never forget. Alex and Mary were the most gracious of hosts who went over and above to make our stay unforgettable. I can’t recommend this beautiful beach house (or these people) more. This was not a vacation for us but rather a new family tradition!"
