Our experience was more then we expected!! From the attention to detail, to great communication, to the view that takes your breath away!! I'm so glad I found this home and only wish we could have stayed longer!! This will not be our last time!! We are already planning next years trip and it better include lilas amazing home!! My only negative is the road to get to mal pais and the road to get to the house but for us it was part of the experience for my mother she wouldn't say the same lol but once she stepped past those gates everything went bye bye!! If you want privacy, a breathtaking view, and comfort this is your home away from home!!

Look no further, this is by far the best Air BnB in Malpais, Montezuma, Santa Theresa and Playa Hermosa. This house is your ultimate vacation house! Whether you are a family, a couple or traveling with friends this is the IT spot. The house is gorgeous, spacious, modern, super accommodating in terms of wifi and accessibility to town, restaurants, surfing, snorkeling, basically anything you can imagine doing while on vacation in Costa Rica. And of course it has the most incredible view of the entire ocean coastline, complete with your own personal infinity pool with disco lights! Not to mention the fantastic crows nest on the roof, perfect for checking out the surf and the happening along the coastline. Me and my boyfriend had the most incredible time of our lives. Lila helped us find the best ATV rentals, surf boards, restaurants, parties, secluded beach spots, new friends, everything! Our room was stunning, the bed was super comfortable, the room has AC, Screen doors, a fan and the sexiest bathroom with a giant spanish tile bathtub YUMMMM! This is a local luxury experience, if you want to treat yourself right on your vacation and live the high life with pura vida then stop what you are doing and book this listing. I am not kidding when I say it changed our lives in the most powerful way we even extended our stay for an extra 3 days because we couldn't imagine leaving! One piece of advice, if you do rent this house you must have your own transportation either an ATV or a car in order to have the most freedom and accessibility around the town. Have fun and Pura Vida!

Myself and two friends had a great time here! The house is wonderful, lots of space, amazing pool and lots of lovely wildlife to see in and around the property. The host's manager was really helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. Would definitely recommend hiring a car to get up the hill to the house + around santa teresa. All in all we enjoyed our stay and would recommend to friends.

After living in Belgium for 17 years, I traveled to Costa Rica and fell in love with the enchanting nature this country has to offer, the people and pura vida, the the beautiful ocean and the joy of surfing it's precious waves. I decided to create a new life for myself and moved here in 2009. A couple years later I built this beautiful home that I now rent to travelers from around the world. I hope to be able to host you one day and share this spot in paradise with you.
