We were 5 biologists in our 30s there for Spring Break.... we all had a great time. There were the best sunsets I've ever seen; the view was unbeatable. There was a great outdoor kitchen and patio--it was a super relaxing place to be... it almost made you not want to go to the beach and just hang out on... More

We stayed in casa Lola for a week over the new year. It was quiet, clean and chill. Just what we wanted. The view from the patio area is impressive, and we found ourselves waking at dawn to capture the early morning vista each day. Indeed, the serenity of early morning on the patio was only matched by the breathtaking... More

3 of us stayed at Nido de Aguila for a week in early January 2013. Our accomodations were in Casa Alred. The drive to Nido de Aguila from the main road is quite the adventure but more than worth it when you arrive. A 4WD vehicle is a must. The only drawback to the area is the quality of the... More

This place is a 'one of a kind' find! we stayed here with 4 students where we made full use of the nice kitchen and the very relaxing balcony. The pool is nice and fresh and Jorg is the most relaxed host you can imagine. The only thing we would have liked to have there would be some chairs to... More

This property is spectacular! The views are breath-taking. The outdoor kitchen/living area and pool are perfect for relaxing after a long day, or just starting your morning with coffee and a book. The property is very clean and private. In the morning and afternoon you will most certainly spot the monkeys in surrounding trees. It's a quick ride to town... More

This was our second visit to Mal Pais so we were familiar with the area. My husband chose Nido de Aguila through VRBO and it turned out to be a true paridise high on the hill. We stayed in Casa Lola and it was even more breatakingly beautiful than the photos can show. Our two sons live to surf and... More

You won't be disappointed with the fabulous view and sunsets over the ocean. The open air rancho with hammocks, tables and chairs is perfect for relaxing. And the pool is just steps away. My husband and I spend the month of January there and really loved it. But you probably do need a 4x4 to negotiate the steep road and... More
