Playa Santa Teresa house description

The White House is the beachfront architectural jewel of Costa Rica's Pacific coast, located on Playa Hermosa, just a few hundred yards north of Santa Teresa and Mal Pais. (Click here for a map).

This signature home is beachside with it's own private infinity pool and volleyball court. The property is adjacent to Pranamar, Costa Rica's most exclusive 5 star yoga resort where guests of The White House can enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner at their world class restaurant Buddah Eyes, and enjoy their beachfront bar.

Accommodations: The White House is a large 4 Bedroom beachfront home that features a gourmet chef's kitchen with an amazing ocean view. Cooking dinner while watching the sun set is an experience that you will never forget !

The main house can accommodate up to 8 people. Should you have a larger party, you may rent out a Villa with the White House or the entire property, (main house and 2 villas) to give you a total of 8 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms. We have full daily maid service, 24 hour security, Satellite TV, local phoneline, and WiFi across the property.

Playa Hermosa is home to a plethora of tidepools and vast expanses of soft white sand. Great all level surf is a 2 minute beach walk north from The White House, and more experienced surfers can go out directly in front of the property.

Featured in 2010 in both Conde Naste Traveller and Su Casa (Central and South America's leading architectural magazine), The White house is the perfect beach getaway for the discriminating traveller.

Exquisite design, and all your creature comforts, along with contemporary art, furnishings, and appliances, and a location on one of the world's most beautiful and private beaches, will give you and your friends and family, the ultimate Costa Rican experience.

If you book The White House, you are welcome to speak to either our onsite Costa Rican manager, Mario, who speaks fluent English, or either of our two L.A. based owners (who spend many weeks a year at the house), and can advise you on everything from finding the best private chefs in the area to organizing a wildlife nature tour you'll never forget !

          Year Purchased: 2007

          About: The picture below is right in front of The White House. The surfer you see is your White House Ambassador, Janine, whom you will be speaking and working with when booking the property. The property is owned jointly between Mr. Jordan and the Bishops who reside in LA and who both share a great love for Costa Rica.

          Why Playa Santa Teresa:
          We bought this property because this is the most beautiful beach in all of the Nicoya Peninsula region.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          The windows provide so much light, until the sun goes down, we never need to turn any lights on. We have a beautiful beach right in front of the house, but what's nice is we have a great and very large tide pool area to the left and surfing for all levels not far to the right of us. One of the owners loves to cook on the grill, while the other owner fancies preparing food in the ocean front kitchen so he has a direct view of the waves.
