Escaleras villa description

***2013 top vacation rental***
***Conde Nast Johansens sole selection for Costa Rica***
***Estilos and Casas Magazine (Central America's leading architectural magazine) cover selection***



Villa Paraiso is located on the southern Pacific coast of Costa Rica in the prestigious luxury home community of Las Olas in the town of Dominical. Only 8 homes enjoy a 1000 acres of rain forest overlooking the Pacific with miles of pristine hiking trails.
This 9500 sq. ft. Spanish Colonial inspired villa took 4 years to complete. There are 4 guest bedroom suites on the first floor. Two have their own private verandas. All have luxurious bathrooms and individual climate control. The master suite, almost 2000 sq. ft. itself, occupies the entire second floor. In addition there is a movie theater and wine cellar.
A live-in house keeper and 24/7 management company will attend to your every need. Enjoy the blue green glass tile pool with built in chaise lounges, infinity edge, and swim up bar or walk to the beach. World class surfing, fishing, and bird watching are just steps away.
Available services at the house include gourmet chef, bartender, masseuse, facials, pedicures, manicure, and yoga instructors. The area has little tourist pressure, but none the less benefits from several grocery stores, liquor stores, and a remarkable assortment of European and Costa Rican restaurants.
At Villa Paraiso you can look forward to the vacation of a lifetime.

              Car: Recommended

              Villa Paraiso is located within the Osa Peninsula, which National Geographic describes as: “the most biologically intense place on earth.” The house is an easy scenic 2.5-3 hour drive from the international airport in San Jose (SJO) down modern and recently paved highways. Or it can be reached by a quick 15 minute commuter flight, which leaves from the international airport and then a short 30 minute drive. Or for the ultimate experience, a 30 minute helicopter ride which lands at the house. The beauty of the area is that it has all the tourist activities of the rest of the country with virtually no tourist pressure. Perhaps, that is why Travel and Leisure Magazine dubbed the area the 'Hottest Travel Destinations of 2013.' It's also why Lonely Planet says of the area, “this is undoubtedly Costa Rica’s top spot to witness wildlife at its wildest.” Despite it's remoteness, there are amazing restaurants, grocery stores, liquor stores, and gift shops. Whether it's bird watching, hiking, surfing, or fishing, it's all a world class experience for those staying at the Villa Paraiso.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2004

              About the owner: I am a physician in the US and Mindy is a CPA. Our friend was the original developer of the area and we fell in love with the place on our first visit.

              Why the Owner Chose Escaleras:
              We did not plan on buying anything on our first visit to the area. The beauty, tranquility, and romance of the area overwhelmed us and we bought a lot on impulse. After a year of thinking we had gone mad buying property in a foreign county, we decided we might as well take the deep plunge and started construction of the villa. It took almost 5 years of a crew of artisans and craftsmen to complete the project, but it is absolutely amazing.

              The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
              THE VIEW!!! I've taken tens of thousands of photos and I have yet to do the view justice. It's just so big that you can't take it all in in one photograph. You feel like you are literally perched on top of the world looking out on the most beautiful coastal view. If that were not enough, the 10 foot tide which sweeps in twice a day constantly changes the landscape. And the sunsets are beyond spectacular!
