About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

Allow your senses to awaken and rejuvenate in this surreal setting. Villa Priya Nivaas is beautifully set on a mountain jetty, opening to the ocean, and embraced by the jungle.

Each of our three finely appointed rooms, offers unique vantage points to take in the best of this incredibly unique environment. From observing wildlife, to immersing yourself in the warmth of the rising and setting sun. Perfect for reharmonizing both inner and outer being.

Great for seekers of authentic experiences which only Santa Teresa/Malpais can offer. Close to the town's great beaches and eateries, but able to return to your own private oasis. Walk to Casa Chameleon, a great boutique destination for breakfast, dinner or crafted cocktails.

Let the inner chef in you shine, with our well equipped kitchen/outdoor grill. And feel pampered by the discreet services of our onsite caretaker, who provides daily housekeeping and laundry services.

We hope you get to experience the magic of this special place!

About owner/property manager

Like so many, my husband and I have searched for that special place, where the problems of the world seem far away. This was what we found. We feel so blessed to have the ability to experience the magic of this home, and share it with others.

owner/property manager purchased this villa in 2016

Why owner/property manager chose Malpais

While at the villa, it feels like only you and the great big ocean exist, but all the amenities of the town are easily accessible.

What makes this villa unique

Before buying this home, I stayed at many homes and hotel in the Santa Teresa/Malpais area, and this one is really special. The way it allows you to interact with the magical enviornment around you.

Absolutely stunning view, stylish and comfortable home overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

  • 5 of 5

Our 5 days staying in Mal Pais in early March was wonderful. We loved this home, the pool, the veranda and the view. Paradise. Soyara, the manager of the home was amazingly helpful, kind and cool. She helped organize an ATV rental for us, suggested wonderful restaurants and beaches as well. We will definitely come back to stay in the Mal Pais/Santa Theresa area again and would love to have this vacation home to be our base up in the hills above town as well. It was a real treat!

Perfect. Absolutely perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Great communication and instructions from host. Clean and tidy and looked exactly like the pictures. Well equipped kitchen. Air conditioned bedrooms. Gorgeous outdoor dining and prep station. Breathtaking views from the pool and master bedroom balconies. Only complaint is we wished there were fans on the patio at night because it stays pretty warm at night and the bugs come out. Wasn’t a big deal. Would happily recommend this place.

PERFECTION in paradise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 4 great nights at the end of March 2018. This house is in a great location up on the hillside, less than a 10min drive, south of Santa Teresa. This house easily scores 5 stars... very new and feels like a resort. Beautifully designed and finished! There is even a star fruit tree right next to the pool where the kids loved picking some "freshies" to eat. The location is great because it is outside of dusty, busy Santa Teresa near the Malpais fishing village, ‘secret beach’ and several great restaurants (Caracolas for drinks/food on the beach or Mary’s for fresh fish and farm to table veggies). A car or a local ATV rental is highly recommended as the hill is STEEP (hence the great views), but your most likely not going to walk to the beach from here. The property manager (Soraya) is incredible, located nearby and can even assist with scheduling activities. There is also an onsite house/grounds keeper in a private/separate house who cleans daily and she will even do your laundry if you want... also adds a level of security for when you're not there. Highly recommend this location.

Lovely spot, great sunsets

  • 4 of 5

We checked in Feb 22 for 10 nights with friends. This is our fourth time staying in this area, our 3rd different villa rental. Would say this is a great rental, view is good, villa is in good repair, clean, fridge and stove work great. We would likely stay again here.

In terms of feedback:

Everything was as expected and displayed in the pictures, except for the second hammock which is now a wooden swing and a lovely way to enjoy the sunsets.

Beds were a little firm for us, even for CR, but totally manageable for 10 days.

For those that care about the view (the ocean view from the pool is actually something I care about), the ocean is a *little* obstructed when actually IN the pool - they have these lovely palm trees on the back side of the pool which make it feel very lush and green, but do partially block the water view.

There is a great starfruit tree on the property

There were a few little issues with the property upon arrival, host was very responsive. Would have like to have seen a quicker response from the one trade involved.

There was only one functioning safe for 4 adults in one of the bedrooms. This wouldn't be a big deal to us except they told us we should use it. For all the gadgets we travel with and the fact it's in someone's bedroom, this didn't really work for us. Thankfully we had no issues.

Carla, the housekeeper did a good job. We had left plenty of dishes each day and she took care of them for us along with making the beds and doing any laundry we needed, which was great. Timing was always a little off from what we'd agreed upon, but when you're on vacation, this isn't a huge deal.

In general, would definitely recommend staying here if you want proximity to town, a nice view, clean house with housekeeping services! Hopefully we'll be back!
