The SpaceVilla Montemeru offers simple yet sophisticated and elegant accommodations. You enjoy magnificent views of the Pacific ocean from nearly every angle, with sunsets to die for. Our property features unique sculptures and sculptured bathrooms made by an internationally acclaimed artist. The house is custom furnished with beds, tables, chairs and closets in various tropical hardwoods. All units have large, high quality ceiling fans that keep the interiors cool year round. Solar hot water systems automatically switch to electricity in the rare event that there isn't enough sun. The pool is meticulously maintained with a minimum of chlorine and the water has no discernible chemical smell. All beds have top of the line mattresses and linens. Nothing artificial. The kitchen features high quality appliances and an espresso machine. Daily room & laundry service, except Sunday. The property has park like surroundings, with many unique trees and plants that are visited daily by many species of tropical birds, butterflies and monkeys. Malpaís, originally a sleepy fishing village at the northern periphery of Costa Rica's first National Park, the Riserva Absoluta Cabo Blanco, today still retains much of its original tranquility and picturesque charm. Just as in days past, the fishermen arrive each afternoon with their daily catch, which they offer to the public. You won't find fresher fish than that. Santa Teresa, only a couple of miles up the road has all the hustle and bustle of a growing tourist attraction, with its hotels, restaurants, bars and shopping. But no matter how busy the main road, the beaches are always uncrowded, with a year round warm Pacific ocean in front and lush tropical vegetation behind. Malpaís is more residential. Only a handful of hotels and restaurants are found along the main road, but the hills are dotted with luxury homes and celebrity hideaways. Entertainment: Being one of the premier surf destinations in Costa Rica, the waves are the main attraction that lure visitors. But other recreational opportunities abound. Horseback riding along the beach or in the hills, gliding through the rain forest canopy on zip lines, hiking, exotic bird watching or just lying on a quiet but not entirely secluded beach and getting that healthy tan, it all adds up to bliss. For those looking for entertainment the area offers a wide variety of attractions, such as contemporary music events, a organic food and flea market and parties on the beach. Lifestyle: Malpaís features a weekly organic market at Playa Carmen, an abundance of outdoor yoga studios, massage therapists, chiropractor and other modalities. There are good restaurants along the beaches and there are excellent cafes and bakeries. To make a long story short, the southern Nicoya Peninsula combines breathtaking nature with high quality living. Come and enjoy it in the first class setting of Villa MonteMeru and experience bliss. (URL HIDDEN) Guest AccessGuests enjoy exclusive privacy with access to all areas of the house. Interaction with GuestsWe'll be here to welcome you, explain the inner workings of the house, hand over the keys and leave you and your family and friends to enjoy the place. Our staff will be here 5 days a week, to take care of house cleaning, pool service and gardening. The NeighborhoodMal País, originally a sleepy fishing village bordering Costa Rica's first National Park, the Riserva Absoluta Cabo Blanco, today still retains its original tranquility and picturesque charm. Just as in days past, the fishermen arrive each afternoon with their daily catch, which they offer to the public. You won't find fresher fish than that. Santa Teresa, only a couple of miles up the road has all the hustle and bustle of a growing tourist attraction, with its hotels, restaurants, bars and shopping. But no matter how busy the main road, the beaches are always uncrowded, with a year round warm Pacific ocean in front and lush tropical vegetation behind. Malpaís is more residential. Only a handful of hotels and restaurants are found along the main road, but the hills are dotted with luxury homes and celebrity hideaways. The southern Nicoya Peninsula is a particularly blessed corner of Costa Rica. Due to its relative remoteness it has retained the vibrant beauty of nature unspoiled by over-development. Depending on the season visitors can expect frequent sightings of monkeys, pizotes, iguanas, frogs and a great variety of birds, such as toucans that come to feast on the papayas ripening in the trees, or flocks of parrots screeching ovehead at dusk. Getting AroundWe do recommend that you have a vehicle for mobility. However, it's not absolutely necessary, since there are taxis that can be called dot the house. Nevertheless, having a vehicle gives you more freedom to roam the many nearby beaches. To get here you basically have 3 choices. You can fly from the International Airport near SJ to Tambor with the domestic airline Sansa. The flight takes about 25 minutes. From Tambor you can either take a taxi to the house or have a rental car waiting for you. You can also take a shuttle from the airport in San José directly to Villa Montemeru, or you can rent a car right at the international airport and drive all the way to Mal País. The drive itself takes about 3 hours. You will have to take a ferry across the gulf of Nicoya, which takes another hour. Other Things to NoteWe now rent rooms when available for single or double occupancy. Please contact for rates.

The SpaceThe penthouse, is a contemporary 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom cozy home located in the quaint little beach town of Mal Pais, Costa Rica. Sliding glass doors practically take up the entire west facing part of the house which open up to an expansive balcony overlooking the tropics, pool and tiki hut. The balcony has ample space and is perfectly suitable for alfresco dining. The outdoor hot/cold jacuzzi is great at all times of the day to relax and capture the sun, sea breeze and warmth of the tropics. Our fully fitted kitchen has granite counter tops and all the kitchen appliances. Stove top and oven, refrigerator, microwave oven, coffee maker, toaster, juicer, even a vitamix blender. Not to mention plenty of glassware, pots & pans, silverware, etc. Modern Comforts: BroadBand WiFi, central A/C, daily housekeeping & quality linens. Ask for our specialty services like local guided tours, private Yoga or Pilates classes, surf lessons, massage or a private chef. The Pacific Penthouse is perfect choice for families or a small group of friends who want a sense of privacy during their holiday vacation yet maintain proximity to the nightlife, restaurants, and the beautiful beaches of Mal Pais, Santa Teresa and Montezuma. Interaction with GuestsI'm in close correspondence with all our guests during their inquiry, throughout their stay and after their checkout. I answer questions within a few hours at all times. The NeighborhoodThe great thing about our location is that we are in the heart of the little fishing village of Mal Pais and the most important thing is just a short walk away. The beach! In fact it's more like a 7 minute walk. Even a shorter walk is Mary's Restaurant, which we highly recommend for great local seafood, daily farm to table specials and wood fired pizza. An overall fun atmosphere to hang with family and friends and shoot some pool. There is also a small convenient store in town called Super Chico, which is right around the corner. Getting AroundWe recommend all our guest to have a means of transport so you can get to enjoy more of the area. We can suggest rental car agencies which have very competitive prices just message us. Another option is to rent ATVs. We can arrange the delivery of ATVs to the property ahead of time so that they are here when you arrive or shortly after. Taxis are available in town and our concierge would be more than happy to arrange pick-ups and drop-offs. Other Things to NoteThe penthouse has another apartment on the ground floor. I like to mention that to our guests in the case they have more family or friends that are traveling with them looking for a place to stay. If you are traveling solo and want to ensure full privacy I understand, just let me know and I'd be more than happy to block the dates on the calendar for the unit below. One great perk our guests get to really enjoy is our proximity to the Mal Pais fishery. You can buy fresh fish straight from the line here from the local fisherman, they will filet if for you so you can cook it or grill it at the comfort of your home. It's literally a 5 minute drive from the villa. Yoga, Pilates & Massages Our guests can schedule private yoga and pilates classes in our brand new poolside tiki hut. Just ask us ahead of time so we can notify our instructor. There are also a couple really good yoga studios in town we can recommend just let us know if you are interested. The same goes for massage therapy, we can arrange them to come to the villa or we can recommend a couple really nice spas in town. Local Tours & Activities I highly recommend our guests to explore Mal Pais, Santa Teresa and Montezuma. I work closely with a local tour operator which takes our guests to some amazing places. The owner Miguel is a local, born and raised in Mal Pais and speaks excellent English and probably one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet. He tailors his tours depending on the guests if it's a family with kids, couples or a group of friends. Needless to say he know the area like the back of his hand. Some of the tours include off road ATV tours, Montezuma waterfall tours, horseback riding, surf lessons, stand up paddle board tours, hiking the Cabo Blanco national park, the Mal Pais zip line, fishing and snorkeling tours just to name a few. Private Chef Private chef service for those who really want to kick back. From a two course meal to a 4-5 course meal, sushi, BBQs to a simple typical Costa Rican breakfast. Message us your preferences. If you are traveling with kids and need a babysitter for a night out, our concierge Diana is great with kids. She is one of the teachers at the local school. Just let her know and when you see her.

One of the nicest things about our neighborhood is the Mal Pais Fishery, which is just down the road. You can head over there and buy some fresh fish right off the line. They'll filet it for you right on the spot : ) Getting AroundWe recommend all our guest to have a means of transport so you can get to enjoy more of the area. We can suggest rental car agencies which have very competitive prices, just message us. Another option is to rent ATVs. We can arrange the delivery of ATVs to the house ahead of time as well. Taxis are available in town and our concierge would be more than happy to arrange pick-ups and drop-offs. Other Things to NoteOur house has an additional unit upstairs that accommodates 7 people. I like to mention that to our guests in the case they have more family or friends that are traveling with them looking for a place to stay. If you are traveling solo and want to ensure full privacy I understand, just let me know and I'd be more than happy to block the dates on the calendar for the upstairs unit. One great perk our guests get to really enjoy is our proximity to the Mal Pais fishery. You can buy fresh fish straight from the line here from the local fisherman, they will filet if for you so you can cook it or grill it at the comfort of your home. It's literally a 5 minute drive from the villa. Yoga, Pilates & Massages Our guests can schedule private yoga and pilates classes in our brand new poolside tiki hut. Just ask us ahead of time so we can notify our instructor. There are also a couple really good yoga studios in town we can recommend just let us know if you are interested. The same goes for massage therapy, we can arrange them to come to the villa or we can recommend a couple really nice spas in town. Local Tours & Activities I highly recommend our guests to explore Mal Pais, Santa Teresa and Montezuma. Take the hassle out of planning local activities and tours, let me put an itinerary together for your family or group of friends with hand picked local tours. There are plenty of super fun kid friendly tours as well. The owner Miguel is a local, born and raised in Mal Pais and speaks excellent English and probably one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet. He tailors his tours depending on the guests if it's a family with kids, couples or a group of friends. Needless to say he know the area like the back of his hand. Some of the tours include off road ATV tours, Montezuma waterfall tours, horseback riding, surf lessons, stand up paddle board tours, hiking the Cabo Blanco national park, the Mal Pais zip line, fishing and snorkeling tours just to name a few. Private Chef Private chef service for those who really want to kick back. From a two course meal to a 4-5 course meal, sushi, BBQs to a simple typical Costa Rican breakfast. Message us your preferences. If you are traveling with kids and need a babysitter for a night out, our concierge Diana is great with kids. She is one of the teachers at the local school. Just let her know and when you see her.

This stretch of coastline with many things to do and see stretches for around 15km, so exploring by car is the best option. In town its easy to rent an ATV quad for anything from hours to days too. ATVs are great to explore up in the hills and mountains where its cowboy and cattle country There are push bikes to rent also. Things to do...

ATV tours over and around the southern tip of the Nicoya Peninsular, taking in Mal Pais, Montezuma, the surrounding countryside inland, down to the beautiful beaches of Manzanillo. This is a great way to get acquainted with the general area. I would be happy to take you all on a complimentary tour. Just need to hire an ATV for me and yourselves and you will all have THE best time! The roads and tracks are fun...highly recommended! Horse tours, either on the beach or into the surrounding hillsides.

Malpais (9°36'03 N, 85°08'36 W) is a town in Puntarenas Province, Costa Rica which began as a fishing and cattle-farming village, and has become popular among surfers and adventure travelers around the world. Recently, Forbes Magazine voted the beaches of Malpais and neighboring Santa Teresa as "One of the ten most beautiful in the world." The town got its name from the fact that all the rivers and streams that flow into the beach in the area dry up in the summer season, making it a "bad land" to try to live in. Malpais now is known for its incredible beauty, with white sand coves, rocky outcroppings, steep jungle-covered hills, and forests teeming with animals, birds, and insects. The area has recently become famous due to several celebrities buying land and building dream houses, Mel Gibson, Gisele Bündchen and Bobbie Phillips, who began bringing celebrities to town several years ago with her private hideaway retreat in the hills of Mal Pais. Casa Chameleon celeb hideaway has won awards from Condé Nast Publications as well as travel sites such as Sherman's Travel. Many A-listers have been spotted around the beaches and cafes of Mal Pais, but there doesn't seem to be a need for them to be flanked by bodyguards, just yet. The area is still remote and undeveloped. Complete with pot-holed dirt roads that become very muddy in the rainy season (July–October) and dry like powder in the dry season (November–May). The area is very spread out and transportation is a must. Most locals get around on quad bikes and motorcycles. Most of these have surf racks on them and it would be an odd day to travel the area without seeing someone with a surfboard heading to the nearby breaks. While Malpais is still a remote fishing village, it also is known for modern day luxuries. Many excellent hotels and luxury houses have been built in recent years, and there are many excellent restaurants, with cuisine from around the world.

With the surf beaches of Santa Teresa only minutes away, the discriminating traveler prefers the tranquility of less densely populated MalpaĂ­s, a stretch of road with little traffic and mostly private residences along the beach and in the hills, interspersed with a few hotels and a couple of outstanding restaurants. The road ends at the Cabo Blanco Absolute Reserve, after passing through the village itself, with its fishing jetties where you can buy the fresh catch of the day after the fishermen return with their hauls. The southern Nicoya Peninsula is a particularly blessed corner of Costa Rica. Due to its relative remoteness it has retained the vibrant beauty of nature unspoiled by over-development. Depending on the season visitors can expect frequent sightings of monkeys, pizotes, iguanas, frogs, toads and a great variety of birds, such as toucans that come to feast on the papayas ripening in the trees, or flocks of parrots screeching overhead at dusk.
