“truly breathtaking”
Reviewed 28 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

My family and I stayed here for a couple nights and it was very hard to leave. The location is perfect. The home layout is beautiful and very open. The pool is situated perfect for sunset viewing or floating in the dark viewing the stars above. I could not keep my boys out of the pool. Billy was an amazing host, very easy going guy with alot of knowledge of the surrounding areas. The house keeper was great and was available if we needed here or her husband at any hour of the day. If we decide to make the trip out to Mal Pais again this will definitely be our rental of choice. Thanks Billy!

“fantastic place - highly recommended”
Reviewed 20 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

Couldn't recommend this place highly enough. Billy and Lisa were lovely hosts, the house is gorgeous, fantastic view, and very conveniently located to mal pais/santa teresa. This is a very large space - At least 2500 sq ft. The pictures don't do it justice.

Just don't book this through Flipkey (they royally messed up our process). Tripadvisor is probably a better way to go.

“Fantastic House for Family Holiday in Mal Pais”
Reviewed 20 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

person found this review helpful

Amazing house. A gem. No less. First time we were renting a house abroad, we would normally stay in hotels but with the youngest of our 3 boys now 5-years old, we decided we wanted the feel of a home away from home. This house is exactly that. All wood and windows on the sea. 180-degree unobstructed view on the ocean. Stunning. Few minutes away from Mal Pais at the end of a quiet private path. Calm and serene. The pool was a massive hit with the boys and the nearby jungle brought us the sight of the occasional friendly monkey guest. Billy is a great house manager, fully committed to making our stay a memorable one. The house comes with the benefit of Rosita the lovely cleaning lady providing daily house care so we would come back from the beach everyday to a tidy and fresh house. We loved it. We loved Costa Rica and will be back! Would recommend Jobbie surfing in Mal Pais, Koji and El Patrizio Tapas in Santa Teresa for dinner and Banana Beach café any day.
