About the Property
4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths-Sleeps 8-Massage Cabina, Pool Deck, Day Bed, Roof Terrace
You will have your private home without neighbors and with the most amazing vistas. Sunsets are magnificent as you sit in the pool or lounge on the terrace enjoy the end of the day. And then the stars! As we are not in Santa Teresa with all the lights, you can enjoy the amazing view of the celestial stars! This is privacy at it's best! And being next to Cabo Blanca National Park, you have the benefits of all that nature bring - monkeys, birds, ocelots, kinkajous, parakeets, toucans and so much more. It's like nature in your backyard.
See all the reviews from our guests - we are what we say and so much more! We provide first class services for our clients and tailor everything to their needs. If you want a chef, a massage at the house, yoga lessons at our yoga cabina, and much more, you just have to ask and we will arrange it all.
Casa Blanca is certainly one of the most desirable houses in Mal Pais/Santa Teresa:
Magnificent 22 meter infinity pool
Outdoor BBQ/Dining patio with Seating for 8 with Sunshade Umbrella.
Separate outdoor Covered Pool Patio with Sunshade Umbrella, benches and pool loungers.
Private Teak/Palm Thatched Massage/Yoga Cabin
and gardens throughout.....
Private Day Bed overlooking the Jungle with beautiful wind chimes.
Private Lower Nature Trail Seating area for great sunrise enjoyment or late afternoon privacy.
And yes, we have our own great WIFI throughout the Villa with Hi Speed Satellite Internet. So, we are not dependent on local connectivity.
And we cater to our clients by providing a Concierge Service that will arrange any and all needs during your stay. Davie and Lisbeth are an amazing team and part of our family. They will leave you in peace, arrange excursions, plan trips and more.
Whether you want to swim laps or just drift in the pool, you will enjoy the serenity and quiet Villa Casa Blanca has to offer.... and with the sound of nature at your doorstep.
Casa Blanca is a very modern two-story house with four spacious bedrooms (all with amazing views) and three exquisite, Italian-tiled bathrooms - all the modern conveniences and designer touches that make each room something very special.
This modern house is just a few 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: We were one of the featured houses for 2012 in Central/South America for the Best Design. We are very proud of our architects - Isobel and Rebecca! They've truly designed something that suits the area but is totally modern and spacious - wood floor in bedrooms to be soft on the foot to polished granite floors downstairs making it a very modern look.
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. But, there are many other beaches along the coast and each with it's own qualities: Playa Carmen, Playa Mar Azul, Playa Hermosa, Playa Santa Teresa, and Playa Manzanillo.
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). 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. It changes from season to season so be sure to ask the Caretaker (or us) for the latest and greatest.
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.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

About the owner: We work in the film industry between London and Los Angeles. Mal Pais attracted us 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, Costa Rica:
The moment we stepped onto the 'plantel', we knew this was it. With amazing ocean vistas, cool breezes, located just next to the National Park. We 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. We 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).
