Montezuma house description

Casa Solipaz, the premier property in the gated community of Armonia Eco-Village, offers constant breezes, mesmerizing ocean and mountain views, and a cooling, salt water infinity pool.
Situated at the highest point of this 25-acre, lush community, the home offers numerous fans as well as energy-efficient air-conditioning in each room.
Wake up to stunning ocean views from any of the three bedrooms.
The large upstairs master bedroom features a shower that looks out onto the sea. Practice yoga on the spacious, private patio located just outside the bedroom’s large sliding glass doors. Or just relax into the cushions of our outdoor furniture.
The downstairs en suite bedrooms have charms of their own. The poolside bedroom offers its own patio, perfect for reading or just soaking in the view while sitting in comfy, teak Adirondack chairs. The second downstairs bedroom has an “outdoor” shower with eye-level screened windows on three sides and stained-glass window insets throughout (no worries - only the monkeys and parrots can see in!).
The kitchen highlights include island cabinets made from guanacaste, the national tree of Costa Rica. The tree had fallen naturally in the jungle; a permit was required to remove it and use the wood. The doors throughout the home are constructed from farmed laurel, continuing the home’s Eco-friendly theme. The entire house and pool are solar-powered in keeping with Costa Rica’s national goal of carbon neutrality.
The fully functional kitchen offers a wide variety of cooking utensils, pots, pans, fridge, blender, coffee maker, teapot, griddle, toaster, dishwasher and microwave oven. Cook inside or make a pizza in our wood-fired pizza oven located on the patio in the back of the house (complete instructions from an experienced local pizza maker included!).
The rancho, located down the hill in front of the house, has a mini-fridge for storing cool drinks and is another great spot to hang out or sunbathe on the home’s many chaise lounges.
Bio-diverse gardens enhance the front of the house, filled with a variety of floral and palm species. At night, the gardens are illuminated by energy-efficient lighting which casts warm shadows over the landscape.
Bring your binoculars with you if you decide to hike down the trails behind the house to the river that runs through Armonia Eco-Village.
Iguanas, white-faced monkeys, howler monkeys, armadillos, pizotes, sloths, deer, foxes, puma, and a huge variety of birds - including toucan, parrots, hummingbirds, motmots, tanagers, and pelicans - live in the community and regularly visit our property.
A wonderful groundskeeper, and Gini, our terrific property manager who speaks english, french and spanish, will ensure that your stay here is memorable. She can help you arrange various excursions, including surfing, fishing, boating, kayaking, snorkeling, cycling, horseback riding, birdwatching, hiking, zip-lining and golfing.
Also ask about the many fine restaurants in the area. La Playa de los Artistas is our personal favorite; sitting right on the beach, you might be lucky enough to see dolphins dancing as you enjoy world-class cuisine.

                      Year Purchased: 2012

                      About: We first visited Costa Rica in 2008 and were immediately enchanted by the lovely people, slower lifestyle, incredible climate and wonderful food. From the start, we felt comfortable here. So after a few more visits, we decided to look for a piece of land on which to build Casa Solipaz (House of Sun and Peace). Standing atop our hill in Armonia Eco-Village, we were awed by the incredible ocean and jungle views as well as the constant, cooling breezes. We were also impressed with Armonia's focus on protecting the environment; the small community has been carefully constructed with the least possible intrusion on the jungle and its many denizens. We knew this would be the site of our second home, one we would like to share with others when we cannot be in residence. Please enjoy the home's tranquility, as well as the area's many fun, exciting attractions!

                      Why Montezuma:
                      Casa Solipaz, with its calming, panoramic ocean and jungle views, simply emanates peace. Gentle breezes, a refreshing horizon pool and the sounds of howler monkeys calling in nearby trees await your arrival! The brand new luxury home's ample outdoor seating areas assure relaxing days. Indoors, enjoy a home-cooked meal in the dining area, sit on the comfortable couch and watch a bit of TV on the 42-inch screen, or use the WiFi to catch up on your e-mail. Hang around the house and property or head out to the hip beach town of Montezuma, just five minutes away by car. You'll find great restaurants and outdoor activities such as zip-lining, waterfall climbs and boating trips.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Casa Solipaz was designed with the environment and the mesmerizing ocean view in mind. The house and pool are powered by the sun, and we have many eco-friendly fans. There are also energy-efficient air-conditioners in each room - but you will probably not need them on most days. Open doors and the sea breeze will provide Nature's own air-conditioning! The secluded area ensures quiet and privacy. Please use the outdoor pizza oven; precise instructions are included.
