Reviewed 8 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

What to say about MalPais, Adi and his house? ... Wow words can't describe. We have 2 kids (8 year old Boy and 5 year old girl). I grew surfing and always wanted to go to CR. April 10th 2017, a friend of mine told me about MalPais and Adi's place. I emailed Adi right away to ask him some questions about the place and activities for the kids. He was extremely helpful, after exchanged several emails with him, It felt like I personally knew him already. I was convinced that was the right beach to go in CR. On March 3rd 2017 we booked out trip to stay on the first floor of Adi's AMAZING home. Adi explained to me all about the driving and the ferry. I just coordinated my flight in with the ferry schedule , so it took us 11hours to get there. So if you are going with small kids, try to land in San Jose 4 hours prior to the ferry. I believe the ferry leaves at 11am,2pm,5pm and 8pm(depending of the day); but check with Adi before you book your flight. Well, even though we had to wait for the 8pm ferry, the kids were having fun and we were able to try C Rican's food in San Jose. Oh! BTW...You need to get to the ferry at lease 30min before. Once you get to the other side, the drive is 1.5 hours just because the roads are ready bad. It's Better if you can rent an SUV. On the way there we thought we were lost and Adi was on the phone with us the whole time until we found the house. When we got to the house around 11pm, Diana was waiting for us. She explainer everything about the house, the city and the activities. I felt I was in a resort and not at an rental.Next day when we woke up, we couldn't believe our eyes...the house was amazing. Exactly what you see on his Airbb page, Brand new Contruction, nature everywhere no noises , very peaceful. The house is perfect because is 3 minutes away from the town (trust me, you don't want to walk on the dirt roads...at least in march when never rains). Anyways, we were all able to surf everyday, zip lining , visit the water falls, go in the pool and walk around the town for ice cream and coffee. We live in miami and were extremely surprised that even thought it's a beach town and "hard place to get to it" , the restaurantes were amazing ... they were "high end" restaurantes in the middle of nowhere, which made it even more special and super cozy. We were only there for only 3 nights and my kids can't wait to go back. Btw, Diana was the one who booked everything for us, all the restaurants and the activities. We travel a lot and we usually stay in hotels, this is our first Air BB experience. When we first got there I told my wife to get information about other places and hotels just in case we wanted to go back there and stay in a different place, maybe closer to the beach ...etc. Next day when we woke up, like I mentioned before , my wife and I didn't have to talk about a different place to stay next time.
Ps: you can walk to the beach (10-15min depending what side you want to go) , we didn't because of the kids, surf boards and the dust.
Next time we want to stay at least 6 days. Thanks Adi and Diana for everything and we hope to see you soon. Ed, Nicole, Kalani and Khloe

“Dreamy, lush jungle, getaway”
Reviewed 2 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Our stay at Pacific Azure was everything and more then what we could have wanted! Our days started on the balcony, surrounded by lush jungle, listining to howler monkeys, enjoying fresh fruits and Costa Rican coffee, followed by long surf sessions, that would have us ready to take a nap in a hammock or by the pool when we returned to Pacific Azure. A must is a fishing trip and grilling your catch for dinner, or making some ceviche! Our host was readily available at any time to help us arrange anything we wanted to do, fishing, atv rentals, canopy tour, waterfall hiking, anything! Thank you Adi for the greatest hospitality, can not wait to return next year, or sooner ;)
