Recent Malpais reviews

  • A wonderful treehouse like home!

    "A perfect spot for a family with tons of nature just outside your window. Quiet and peaceful but lots to do! We LOVED it and will go back."

  • Possibily the best located house in Malpais

    "Our family of 5 very much enjoyed our short stay at Casa Celeste: and I agree with the other reviewers. Vicente was welcoming and yet reclusive, the house was rustic, clean and comfortable. The location was the best we say along the shore of Malpais. The owners were responsive and it was easy to book with them. Everything was comfortable and nice. The only thing I missed was a microwave and we got over that quickly. Cold milk with your coffee isn't the end of the world....We had a big truck which was a bit difficult to park in Santa Teresa so I recommend a smaller 4 wheel drive or rent an atv to drive to the store. Visit the tico restaurant Caracoles 2 houses up - wonderful food and very nice hosts.The bakery was excellent, but we preferred to eat breakfast and drink our coffee at the best view in town - Casa Celeste. Visit secret beach at low tide so you can snorkel, but bring your shoes at it's very rocky, but lovely. Make sure you visit Playa Hermosa which I believe is one of the loveliest and safest beaches to swim at in CR. Enjoy!"

  • WOW - Amazing and Breathtaking Indeed!!

    "We have stayed in VRBOs and Airbnbs all over the world and by far this property was perhaps the best and exceeded all expectations. While nothing is 'perfect', Casa Luz de Luna was as near perfect as could be with the amazing view, infinity pool, outdoor setting, clean accommodations, private bedroom and bath, etc. Soraya and Carla were beyond gracious and helpful. Everything stated in the listening is accurate and then some - this is truly a special place and we cannot recommend it enough!! Thank you for making our stay at your wonderful place the highlight of our Costa Rican getaway!!"

  • Stunning house and location

    "First off, Maipais is definitely off the beaten path. If you're looking for a place to get away from the rat race of the world, Maipais is as good as I've seen. Rugged dirt roads, friendly non-pretentious people, a beautiful local culture and incredible unspoiled natural beauty. The house is stunning. Beautiful open area with 20' ceilings for the kitchen and living room. Nicely decorated and well appointed with everything you need. Beds were comfy with good quality sheets and pillows. The infinity pool and decks were truly awesome with great outdoor furniture to lounge on. And can't forget the upstairs bathroom with the huge covered, but open air shower. The house is kept very clean by the staff. Nadja (the concierge) along with Juan Carlos and Brenda (maintenance and cleaning) were completely unobtrusive but also very very helpful. If you get a chance, take an ATV tour with Xtreme sports in maipais. Johan is the owner there and if you can, get Jeremy to be your guide as we had a blast on a 9 hour private tour of the region. Some final notes * Make sure to have a 4WD vehicle as you won't be able to get to the house without one. * Costa Rica has ants, geckos, lizards, monkeys.etc. If you are a squeamish person who is used to only traveling to five star resorts, maipais and this house is probably not for you as it is in the jungle. * Google maps works great 90℅ or so of the time, but the two times it didn't it nearly took us into a river at night and to the wrong ferry on our way home. Use common sense and you'll be ok. * We can't wait to come back in 2017."
