Tropical modernism above the Pacific

8 guests · 4 bedrooms · 4 bathrooms
Sleek contemporary architecture is a gorgeous counterpoint to unspoiled natural surroundings at Casa Maleku. Set in the beach town of Santa Teresa, this stylish vacation rental looks out over the lush Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve to the ocean. It’s the ideal retreat for groups of up to eight friends or extended family who want to experience the beauty of Costa Rica or have easy access to the country’s west-coast surf paradise in an ambience of modern luxury.
Watch the sun move across the jungle canopy and listen to birds calling in the treetops from a terrace with an infinity pool and loungers in both the sun and the shade. Inside, the villa’s amenities range from Wi-Fi to air conditioning and laundry facilities.
The understated architecture and clean lines of Casa Maleku let the verdant landscape be the star. A polished floor and concrete walls are the backdrop to the open-plan great room, where the sitting area, dining area and fully equipped kitchen can be completely opened to the terrace via a fold-away glass wall.
Each of the villa’s four bedrooms has a king bed, private en-suite bathroom and partial or full ocean view, for holiday accommodations to rival those at any resort. Like the great room, the bedrooms are simple spaces with pared-down furnishings and large windows, creating the feel of being in a luxe treehouse.
With both the North Santa Teresa Beach and a grocery store less than a 10-minute walk from the casa, everything you’ll need for a relaxed beach vacation is practically at your doorstep. Of course, you can also take a surf lesson—or just a honeymoon-style stroll—along the three other popular-but-pristine beaches within a few minutes’ drive.
