  • Always a treat!

    "We've stayed at Mali several times and it is always, always, always a great experience. The ladies at Batik are helpful, accommodating and all around lovely. The house is as shown in the photos - in a word, gorgeous! Plenty to do close by and yet a bit removed from the hustle of the main beach area so that you feel you can relax."

  • Awesome place, perfect location.

    "We traveled to Costa Rica in Late April and stayed 4 nights at this place in Santa Teresa. We were 3 couples (6 people total) and it worked out perfect for each couple to have their own bedroom. It was very hot and very dry on the Nicoya Peninsula with it being the end of dry season, I would love to come back when the area is much more lush and verdant. With that said, it was a godsend to have a pool and A/C units in the bedroom. The units cool down the rooms very quickly, therefore we could turn them on as needed and conserve energy. We were able to drive up the hill easily in the Daihatsu Terios, these cars have 4WD but we didn't even need to turn it on to get up the hill. You definitely don't need to rent ATVs for the week unless if you don't have a rental car and don't feel like walking up the hill/ The location is perfect because you are away from the noise and dust of the main street without being far away from the best beach and restaurants. We ate one evening at Brisas Del Mar just down the hill, this restaurant is phenomenal albeit a bit pricy. Habaneros was a great place to go for a sunset dinner and tasty margaritas. We did breakfast at The Bakery one of the days and the other 3 days cooked breakfast at the house. Be careful when reaching for the dishes, as we did find a scorpion tucked behind a cutting board. My biggest critiques of the house are the lack of real cabinets in the kitchen to keep the dishes clean and scorpions out and that the second bathroom is not air conditioned or even well ventilated. We did a 24 hour surf board rental which was a blast and another day rented ATVs and did a big loop around the peninsula, visiting Montezuma and much more. I don't know that I will be returning to Costa Rica anytime soon, but if I did, I would definitely stay at this property again."

  • Beautiful house and gorgeous setting

    "We loved the house and the view from the balcony. Beautiful woodwork throughout. The main room is larger than it looks in the photos. We did not see mosquitoes. We had Melanie cook a meal for us and it was delicious. The yoga classes were a real plus. We enjoyed watching the monkeys from the balcony. We took a number of tours and enjoyed the wildlife. We did not rent a car, which limited us a bit. There are no groceries other than the one in Puerto Jimenez, 40 minutes away on a very bumpy road...NONE. For hiking you can walk twenty minutes to the resort Lapo Rios. We took a 2.5 hour waterfall hike there and enjoyed it. You can also just walk up the river from the main road and get to the same waterfall--if you are sure-footed. I did it and it was beautiful. Any water--river or beach-- is public property. 10 meters either side for rivers, I think 50 meters from high tide for the beaches. I'd suggest that any tours you arrange you are clear with the guide exactly what you have in mind. We took the boat tour to the wildlife refuge, and found out halfway through the tour that we weren't going to the refuge because it was closed. Yes, there were other great things on the boat tour--I just wish he had told me and we might have rearranged it. Similarly, let the nature tour guide know if you want a forest hike or bird watching--two very different things. We also did a kayak tour of the mangrove swamp (Aventures Tropicales )and it was great."

  • Awsome time

    "Terry and Andy: Happy New Year. Thank you again for your hospitality. We had an awesome time. Everything was as described in your listing. The house was great, the property was perfect and we can not say enough about the wildlife. The sights and sounds were incredible. You were extremely helpful sharing your local knowledge of the area. If you are into nature and a laid back atmosphere, then this is the place to stay. Next time we come we will be sure and schedule a visit to the park with you."
