    The Villas are just steps away from the treasure of Playa Hermosa, the beach directly in front of the White House property.

    The Villas each have two bedrooms and bathrooms, one of which has a serene outdoor shower. One bedroom has a queen, and the second has two twins, which can easily be put together to accommodate two couples or kept separate for the kids. Sofas can also double as daybeds.

    Our kitchens are fully equipped with a gas stove (four rings), a large refrigerator with a freezer, microwave, water dispenser and all the cutlery, glassware and plates you’ll need. Charcoal BBQ is also available upon request.



White House Hotel@

The White House is the architectural jewel of the Pacific coast located beachfront on Playa Hermosa, just a little north of Santa Teresa in the Mal Pais Area, in Puntarenas, Costa Rica.

The signature home, is an architectural masterpiece directly on Playa Hermosa, built 50 yards from the high tide line (the absolute closest we could legally).  The White House has a private infinity pool. The property directly next door is the newly built Pranamar, the newest and most exclusive yoga resort in Costa Rica which opened in June of 2010.  The yoga resort was built and is currently managed by the people that created the famous hotel Flor Blanca (which is 10 minutes down the road).

The White House Villas are perfect for beach access luxury at a more affordable price, or to accommodate a larger party. The villas have two rooms upstairs and a bathroom. One bedroom is with a queen and the other with a double. Downstairs boasts the coveted “Costa Rica Shower” – and indoor/outdoor experience not to be missed!

The backroom is the peaceful room. Good for singles, or kids, although the two twin size beds can be put together as one. Walking out into the living space is the real Pura Vida. Entertaining space for your family or guests. A large dining table is available for dinners prepared by yourself or private (arranged) chef. If you choose to cook, enjoy ample cooking and cutting space, plenty of tools, and an amazing view of the ocean.

Mal Pais - Santa Teresa

Mal Pais - Santa Teresa

It’s ironic that Malpaís means “bad land” in Spanish—this is a place where the beach stretches for miles and the waves can make even the most seasoned of surfers drool. The main town is populated by relaxed, heady locals and is near some impressive outdoor areas, including parks and waterfalls. No, Malpaís isn’t a bad land at all; to the contrary, it’s quite remarkable.

The name comes from the olden days when agriculture – not tourism – was the region’s main gig. The rivers and streams would dry up during the summer, which made it hard for the locals to grow crops. These days the streams still flow less during parts of the year, but that hardly matters—Malpaís and the surrounding area are quickly becoming one of Costa Rica’s hottest destinations. It’s steadily attracting travelers with its lure of white-sand beaches, swaths of forest and warm, surfable waters.

In fact, it was the surfing that first brought people here. During most of the 20th century, Malpaís was hardly known to the international community. The small village mainly sustained itself through a combination of agriculture and fishing. All that changed when surfers – both national and international – heard about the consistently good waves that the area received. Slowly but steadily, people began showing up to shred the swells that rolled onto the beaches of Malpaís. Once they saw what was on tap, they were hooked; many, in fact, never left and stayed around to open businesses. Within a matter of years, Malpaís began blooming into the funky, unique place that it is today.
