Very Good

“WOW, just WOW”

Reviewed 16 May 2013

Casa Blanca provided a beautiful setting for the vacation of a lifetime. Exactly as described and pictured, the home was spectacular in every way. The views of the hills and ocean were breathtaking, especially during the sunset hour, while the sounds of local wildlife lulled us to a restful sleep each evening. My favorite spot was the hammock with its gentle breeze which afforded some much needed rest and time for personal reflection. The owner provided assistance for months prior to our arrival through the day we had to return to the "real world." He answered every question I asked (there were many) and helped arrange last minute transportation when we needed to return our rental car a day early. If you are looking for a place to get away from it all, while still enjoying luxurious accommodations, this is it!

Owner's reply: You're the best! Thanks again for staying with us and we hope you'll come back soon. Team Casa Blanca

“Perfect stress-free getaway”

Reviewed 2 Mar 2013

It's an adventure to get to the villa, but once you are there, you enter a different world - a true dream home in an unspoilt setting, away from the stresses and strains of modern life. Yet it has all mod cons and more.. My grown up sons and their girlfriends thought they had landed in paradise! It was a wonderful feeling to enjoy living and relaxing in such a perfect setting. Mike the owner (providing remote support) and the local staff made us feel at home and did everything possible to ensure we had a stress-free stay there. If you enjoy the relaxed surf vibe then a stay here ticks all the boxes. Thoroughly recommended.

“Inspired and spectacular vacation setting”

Reviewed 24 May 2012

Staying at Casa Blanca was a dream. Beautiful views, comfortable home inviting one to relax and take in the spectacular vista of the Pacific Ocean and coastline, and on the other side of the house the untouched tropical forest. The kitchen has every amenity needed to create your meals, then jump in to the nearby lap pool for an evening or early morning dip. Each room has it's own feel and view to absorb. Outdoor shower and bathrooms are spacious and colorful. The outdoor Cabana is a special place to linger day or night, and catch the breezes from the hilltop. The household help was super friendly and helpful in every way. Truly an inspired place to stay!

“Fantastic place to relax and experience paradise”

Reviewed 2 May 2012

From morning hops off my balcony into the pool to midday siestas in the massage and relaxation cabina to nights falling asleep listening to the waves of the ocean, my experience at Casa Blanca was a fantastic opportunity to simply rest and enjoy the beauty all around me. The house's clean modern design always feels cozy and comfortable, and yet can be completely opened up to invite in the cool breeze and the quiet sounds of the environment. The view is extraordinary, with unobstructed view of the ocean on one side and lush forest on the other. The area around Mal Pais offers many beautiful beaches and trails to explore, although if you are like me you might prefer to relax around the house occasionally enjoying a mango or bite of ceviche made from the freshest catch you can buy from the local fishermen. The house provides all the amenities one would hope for, always feels clean, and is well-maintained by the helpful staff. My family and I had a fabulous holiday at Casa Blanca, and would absolutely recommend the house for anyone wanting a memorable vacation in paradise. We hope to return soon!

“Paradise Found!!”

Reviewed 5 Apr 2012

Where to begin!. . . . . Absolute dream experience from the first email to waving "adios" to Eduardo, Lourdes and their beautiful family!! I wanted a unmatched experience for my husband's 40th birthday with our family and friends. Casa Blanca in Mal Pais was an answer to all my wishes. Michael was great with my barrage of questions and was so helpful with all the info. Lucia was a huge part of our trip being such a success! Her help was invaluable and was there for our every request! The house is indescribably beautiful! The pictures on the site are wonderful but nothing can capture the feeling of peace and beauty that surrounds you as you are sipping a beverage from the infinity pool, as the sun sets while the fresh lobster and sushi grade tuna bought off the boat hours before, is being cooked in a chef's dream kitchen!! AMAZING!! Can't say enough great things about our time at Casa Blanca! Thanks to all of you who made this so great.... Michael, Lucia, Eduardo, and Lourdes made this the trip of a lifetime! Willy (quad rental), Mary's restaurant for a great birthday dinner, Super Ronny for staples, Jobbie's surf school, Montezuma Zip Line, Ylang Ylang amazing dining experience, the monkey troop that joined us for breakfast, the wild Lorakeets flocks waking us in the morning, and the list goes on and on.... Thanks to everyone! And if your reading this trying to decide if you should make part of your vacation, do yourself and favor and book immediately, you can thank me later!!! Thanks Again! Pura Vida!

“Simply FANTASTIC!!!!”

Reviewed 3 Apr 2012

We contacted the owners about our holiday. They were amazing as they walked us through all of Costa Rica and Mal Pais/Santa Teresa. We saw the house on the website but when we arrived it was more then we could have ever imagined. An amazing modern home overlooking the entire Pacific Ocean in total tranquility. We felt like we arrived in a paradise of seclusion. Then, we walked in the house and it was like nothing we would have imagined. A kitchen with everything we wanted, a living environment with folding glass doors that opened the entire ground floor to the infinity pool and onto the sunset when we arrived. It was like arriving in Nirvana. The upstairs bedrooms were a dream: air-conditioned, wood floors with a natural touch and the rooms were spacious with balconies that looked over the Pacific Ocean. Paradise. As we explored, the bathrooms were like another surprise with rain-shower bathrooms and views to die for and an outside shower overlooking the valley. Who would want to leave! The following week we enjoyed the kitchen with everything you would want, the outside BBQ, the terrace overlooking the ocean... imagine having a BBQ overlooking the pool and the Pacific. Ahhhhh........ The person overlooking the house and his wife took care of everything. Whatever we needed, they attended to from food, fishing, BBQ, local attractions, the fisherman's market, yoga and surfing. Everything we wanted was answered easily. This is a house that you just sit back and relax as they've thought of it all - electronic lighting throughout, media room with digital projector and 300 DVDs, kitchen with all modern appliances! We felt we never had to leave until we discovered the surfboards and had to head to the beach to give a go! And then, you think it's all and then you discover the roof terrace with mini-bar overlooking the entire expanse of the Pacific. We spend several nights on this terrace plucking the stars from the sky. Eduardo and Lourdes really made our stay the most amazing ever. Our trip to Paradise was complete and we never left the pool!!! As a matter of fact we didn't want to leave the house! We had total privacy in a tranquil part of the world. We're coming back!!!!

“Costa Rica in Style”

Reviewed 30 Mar 2012

We had a brilliant time at this villa and would highly recommend it. The villa was beautiful and had stunning views across the sea and jungle. The layout, decoration and furniture have all been very well chosen and create a very relaxed stylish atomsphere. The kitchen was well equipped for making 3 courses dinners and the occassional cocktail! The pool and deck area were stunning and when we finally managed to drag ourselves away from the villa (which is very difficult) and explore the nearby towns there was so many activiites on offer we didnt know where to start! Tuna fishing and then eating the fresh fish at Mary's restaurant was defintely a highlight. Eduardo (brother of the owner) was very friendly and attentive, coming to meet us in town when we arrived and show us around the villa as well as coming to clean the pool everyday. We also received plenty of useful information and directions from the owners before we arrived and also recommendations throughout our stay. Overall I would say this villa was the highlight of our trip to Costa Rica and would be very tough to find somewhere this special again! The villa certainly made our trip to Costa Rica a memorable experience!!

This place is set in a world of its own; unhurried, elegant and in perfect harmony with nature. The combination of jungle, polished concrete, minimalist design and functionality (complete with endless house accessories incl. surboards) offers a sense of comfort and tranquility that’s hard to find. The result is pretty, um, stellar. I’m lounging by the pool with a book in hand, overlooking the Pacific and listening to Thievery Corp on the surround sound system. The walls of fold-back glass doors are open to the jungle and I can feel the ocean breeze and hear the monkeys. Perched on a hill, the house is away from the crowds and yet just a quick ride away from the coffee and sushi boutiques alive with a vibrant Tico culture. I came here to study for my exams and was a bit apprehensive about the remoteness of the house but Mike arranged for bulletproof security: house alarm system, Eduardo on-call, Coloches, the poodle and Rente, the mini pinscher. I’m not sure who protected who but we’re all relaxed-out and feeling high (on life, not on ganja). Mike was just a phone call away in case I needed anything and he followed-up with me closely to make sure I felt comfortable. Despite my worthless Spanish, Eduardo, Google translate and I made things happen. He also came to rescue me after I drove my ATV into a ditch. Yoga and Sushi at Pranamar were kickass, massage at the spa and surfing filled in most of my hours when I wasn’t studying. Check out the starts at night, hot sauce at Zula, dinner at Milarepa and hit up the library of 200+ movies. There’s a mystery about this place you can’t capture in words so you’ll just have to come and see for yourself - you will not be disappointed. Thanks for everything Mike, Eduardo and Lucia! Till next time… Martina, Toronto, Canada

Owner's reply: Thanks so much Martina. It was great to have you.... and the little one protected you. Mike
