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.

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 house however is almost new! She took her time to find the right siting! All fixtures for the bathroom and kitchen are new - including dishwasher, large refrigerator, washing and drying machines - and sourced from Europe and the US. The table settings are all made locally in terra-cotta. The house comprises two large bedrooms at the ground level; an immense open balcony level that sleeps three to six; and a separate studio on the lower level. There are three full bathrooms, one partially exterior and surrounded by tropical plantings, and an exterior shower. Seven people sleep comfortably without use of any pull-out couches. The full house on three levels, naturally, and a pristine 10 acre site that overlooks the Mal Pais and Santa Teressa beaches through jungle foliage. Note the roads in the Nicoya Pennisula are 90% earth beaten - at times one has to cross rivers even a few inches deep in the dry season - and in the case of Casa Wave the public road we helped put in 20 years ago is a straight drive up for 900 meters at a very steep angle, also not untypical here!

Fantastic sunsets can be enjoyed while swimming in the one of a kind infinity pool. This beautiful home is perfect for families traveling together, reunions, surf trips or fishing trips. 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.

                      Villa Montemeru offers simple yet sophisticated and elegant accommodations. From nearly every angle one enjoys magnificent views of the Pacific ocean with sunsets to die for. The house is custom furnished with beds, tables, chairs and closets in various tropical hardwoods. There are altogether four bedrooms, each with private bathroom and balcony or terrace. All beds come with top of the line mattresses and 100% cotton linens. The windows and French doors are oversize and offer stunning ocean views. Three bedrooms have one king size bed each, while the fourth has two queen size beds. Two of the units feature wall-mounted flat panel TV monitors with iPod, PC & Mac connectivity, as well as Satellite TV. All bedrooms have ceiling fans that keep the interior cool at all times. The bathrooms are tiled in either ceramic, marble or natural stone, with eclectic accents that give each of them a unique look. Solar hot water systems automatically switch to electricity in the rare event that there isn't enough sun. The ground floor includes the sunken kitchen, a pavilion style dining and recreational area and the infinity pool. The kitchen comes with high quality cookware, appliances and an espresso machine.The crystal clear pool is maintained with a minimum of chemicals and the water has no discernible chlorine smell. The entire estate has park like surroundings with a variety of tropical fruit trees and flowering ornamental plants, butterflies and iguanas. Frequent visits by exotic birds and monkeys are to be expected. The sun sets in the Pacific ocean right in front and regales the visitor with a daily changing spectacle. Our guests enjoy absolute privacy in an atmosphere of exquisite tranquility. There are two lovely beaches within five walking minutes and four restaurants also within walking distance. Daily cleaning service, except Sundays. Gratuity not included in rates No additional fees! Gratuities are not included. 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.

The property is lush with a variety of tropical plants and the pool is deep and refreshing. An ocean view is seen from the top floors, the sounds of waves rolling on the shores enhances the tranquility of the space.

Interaction with GuestsI will be available to guide you and help you with activities and transportation. I am there when you need me and disappear when you don't. I have 3 Huskies that will be with me and who love to go for walks on the beach with our guests and swim in the rock pools. The NeighborhoodMal Pais is a special place where the beaches offer geological rock formations that create soothing rock pools. Just a short walk and you are in town where you will find many great shops and restaurants. 3 min walk and we have a Costa Rican fare Restaurant and just above us is a wonderful resort and restaurant with pool and bar.. Getting AroundMy favorite way to get around is by ATV. You can emerge yourself in the culture and feel one with surroundings as opposed to driving around in a bumpy car. Our roads are mostly dirt and have pot holes that add a certain charm to our ¨rustic-chic¨ community. Of course you can rent a car if you prefer. We do have taxi service in town as well and you can always walk by beach to many restaurant and shops and yoga classes. Other Things to NoteLiving here in the tropics I chose to be as close to nature as possible and all the while living in a beautiful home. I chose to use the sun for power, no air conditioning so I could hear the waves at night and the tropical birds and monkeys in the morning. We do not need hot water, our water is air temp and is welcomed after a hot day. I have moved from the cold of New England to here where I have lived with no AC or hot water for 5 years. Its Pura Vida Living at its best.
