Malpais villa description

When you want privacy, Villa Casa Blanca allows a completely private sanctuary just for you, your family and friends - and with the most amazing views stretching from the Cabo Blanco National Park to Samara Beach.

Casa Blanca is certainly one of the most desirable houses in Mal Pais/Santa Teresa with a magnificent 22 meter infinity pool, outdoor BBQ/Dining patio, Massage/Yoga Cabin, Private Patio Gardens throughout... and WIFI throughout with Hi Speed Satellite Internet.

Whether you want to swim laps or just drift in the pool, you will enjoy the serenity and quiet - with the sound of nature at your doorstep.

Casa Blanca is a very modern two-story house with four spacious bedrooms (all with views to die for) and three exquisite, Italian-tiled bathrooms - all the modern conveniences and designer touches.

This modern house is just 1/2 km (5 minutes) from the Mar Azul Beach perched on the hilltop allowing you total tranquility with the most breath-taking views of the Pacific Ocean. Walk up to the third story Roof Terrace (complete with mini-bar) where you can sit and watch the monkeys and reach up and touch the fluffy clouds gently flowing overhead - and at night pluck the stars from the sky.

The House: Please see the website listing for photos and movie and also see us on http://www.revistasucasa.com/contenido/articles/1011/1/Casablanca/Paacuteginas1.html. We were one of the feature houses for 2012 in Central/South America for the design - and we are very proud of our architects. Or also see the video posted by our client on http://vimeo.com/63881072.

The Area: Mal Pais has a wonderful private Swedish Beach nestled quietly next to the Cabo Blanca National Park Entrance. So, if you want to find that secluded beach, this is the place to go.

Just nearby is the Mal Pais Fishing Village where you can either get a boat and go fishing yourself or simply enjoy that catches of the day.... very fresh and tasty and the fishermen will prepare your fish for you.

There are plenty of local restaurants and grocery stores (about 6 - 8 pending season) to choose from. We also have an Organic Market every Saturday afternoon at Playa Carmen.

And of course the beaches are the best in Costa Rica (voted recently by Trip Advisor). Long, empty stretches of beaches with the best waves for beginners to intermediates. There are fantastic natural tide pools where you can relax and enjoy the warm waters of Costa Rica in peace.

The dining experience of the area ranges from typical Tico food to very special restaurants that serve a fantastic variety of cuisine. We can provide you with a complete list of restaurants in the area.

Activities: You will find an endless amount of things to choose from: Surfing, Swimming, Yoga, Paddle Boarding, Massage, Tai Chai, Capoiera, Hiking in the National Park, Zip Lining above the Montezuma Waterfalls, cliff diving at the Waterfalls, Tortuga Island where you can snorkel and scuba dive, fishing (fantastic and amazing fish), and much, much more.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2008

                          About the owner: I work in the film industry between London and Los Angeles. Mal Pais attracted me after one visit. The peacefulness, the people, the ocean vistas, the long empty beaches... and the list goes on. Mal Pais became the obvious choice to escape from work and enter into a paradise where one can reconnect with oneself and enjoy life without the daily stresses of living in a major city.

                          Why the Owner Chose Malpais:
                          The moment I stepped onto the 'plantel', I knew this was it. With amazing ocean vistas, cool breezes, located just next to the National Park. I wanted to find a location that wouldn't be overtaken by future developments, that would retain the beauty of the jungle, that would respect nature whilst building something eco-friendly. I wanted to create an oasis of paradise with amazing vistas.... and to create a modern, clean home with simple use of concrete and glass (the sea element is harsh on buildings as are termites). So, we created a very clean and modern structure which emphasized the views of the Pacific Ocean and the Cabo Blanco National Park. Beyond that, we wanted to create a home for visitors that would offer all modern conveniences (screen doors, sealed rooms, air-con, modern appliances, fantastic lighting).... and a 22m Lap Pool to exercise, and a Massage/Yoga Cabina to escape. We extended the garden so that those who stay with us can escape to private areas and enjoy the sound of the waves, the sound of the jungle - and the many animals and birds.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                          Sun, sea, pool, views, beaches! What more :) This Villa give you complete tranquility with amazing vistas in your own private Paradise. It offers you a kitchen/dining environment overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It's a great place to cook, enjoy friends and views. There are many places on the grounds to escape to (Massage Cabina, Lower Garden, Private Jungle Garden, Nature Trail and more).
