About Michael Solinger and Juan Carlos Alvarez - Owners
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.
Michael Solinger and Juan Carlos Alvarez - Owners purchased this Villa in 2008
Why Michael Solinger and Juan Carlos Alvarez - Owners chose Malpais
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 dreamiest place I've ever been!
I know it sounds simplistic but every single thing about this place is beautiful. The way the light comes in the morning, the sounds of nature at night, the pool, and the view. Mike had also thought of everything, someone to welcome you in, sound system around the house, bbq, it really felt like home somehow - even though I'd never been there before. It felt like a glass of wine after a long journey.
We are so pleased you enjoyed yourselves too much. We hope we will be able to do it again for you. And we wish you the best wishes for 2019! Happy New Year.

Mike's house was amazing!
This place was totally ballin'! It's completely secluded and totally luxurious. You just need to check out the photos! It is very well maintained, modern, clean, and with amazing grounds filled with quite places to read, etc. And then there's the incredible infinity pool!
I would very much recommend it to anyone, though you have to be comfortable driving up and down the hill :)
Hi Sharif. Again, so much thanks for the kind words. We are so pleased you had the best time. Come back to enjoy more soon. All the best, Team Casa Blanca
This is a fabulous dream-house with amazing views, especially at sunset. The pool is superb.
We had an amazing stay at Casa Blanca. It is a beautiful architect-designed house, all glass and concrete, very modern and airy yet so comfortable and easy. Great, well-equipped kitchen and bathrooms. Lots of towels. Fabulous infinity pool with cushioned sunbeds. The views at sunset must be among the best in the world. The caretaker Davie and housekeeper Lizbeth could not be more helpful. Nothing is too much trouble. Lizbeth cooks too if you want her to. It's a 15 minute drive (you will definitely need a car) from Santa Teresa, where shops and restaurants are great. The beaches are to die for, whether you want to surf or swim. There are loads of activities within easy reach: snorkelling, fishing, zip-lining, bird-watching etc. Altogether the most fantastic holiday and Michael could not be a more concerned and helpful host. We would LOVE to go back!
Hi Lisa: Thanks for the great response and we are so happy you loved the house and enjoyed your time with our staff. We aim to please. We hope to see you back soon.

One word describes this home. AMAZING!!! From the minute we booked this home for our family vacation Michael and Juan were very welcoming. When we arrived David and Lisbeth treated us like family we wanted for nothing. They helped us book massages, ATV adventures! David brought us fresh fish!! My husband was in heaven in gourmet kitchen and bbq area!!! We rented an aide by side and went to market every day to buy meats and fresh produce. Recommend this home 100%. Thank you Michael, Juan, David y Lisbeth. See you next year!!!!❤️
We are so happy you had a wonderful experience in Parsdise. We pride ourselves on making it simple and relaxing so our guests can simply enjoy. We look forward to having you back.
All the best,
What an incredible place to stay! I didn't want to leave the house.
To just sit in the open air living room or dining room with expansive views was just what the doctor ordered.
Concierge Davie was a pleasure to meet and arranged massages and snorkling for us.
When we did decide to leave, we were greeted by a family of monkeys having their evening meal of flowers and bugs on a tree on the driveway.
If you're a hiker, nearby Cabo Blanco is a must.
While we were there alone, it would be an incredible place for a gathering of a large family or close friends. Every bedroom is really nice, not just the master. There are so many areas to hang out, it would not feel crowded with a large group.
If you're price conscious, don't let the price deter you.....if you split this between 4 couples, its VERY affordable, only $150/night per couple. To have this amount of luxury for such a reasonable amount is a great value.
I'm definitely sending my friends!
We loved having you both with us. It was a pleasure and we hope you had a great time. Please come back and join us again in Paradise! With the monkeys!

Who doesn’t like heaven??
I guess writing this review means that this wasn’t a dream. Casa Blanca is absolute paradise. The large open plan living area, to the infinity pool overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the BBQ to the many natural pets you will come across while sunbathing, the incredible views when you wake up and the tranquility of the surrounding jungle. What more can I say, apart from I NEED to go back to paradise. The best house I’ve ever been to - I felt like a prince!
Thanks for the wonderful time. We enjoyed having you with us at Casa Blanca and we look forward to your return. Team Casa Blanca
