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.

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.

About Paul Bradley

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.

Paul Bradley purchased this villa in 2004

Why Paul Bradley chose Dominicalito

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.

What makes this villa unique

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful visit, the villa was magnificient, the staff were attentive, and the entire experience was flawless.

Fabulous home with spectacular view!

  • 5 of 5

Our three generational family of 10 just returned from a wonderful Costa Rican vacation, which was made even more special due to this fabulous abode. The view of the coastline is spectacular. The huge covered terrace and pool were a big hit with our family, 5-74 years old. Most nights we ate on the terrace. Some of the children even ate at the swim-up bar, so that they didn't have to leave the pool! The terrace wraps around the house on 2 sides, so a comfortable spot in the shade is always available. The inside dining/living room was beautifully furnished and comfortable, as well. A few of us sought the AC there, when the temp outside soared. The bedrooms are as described on the site, with AC and en-suite bathrooms. All have a safe. Our Master suite on the top floor, was sumptuous. Huge rock-lined shower, big double vanity area, closet, toilet area plus a big outside terrace with hot tub. There are no curtains in the MBR, so if a 5:30 AM sunrise bothers you, bring eye-shades. We had one of our grandchildren sleeping up there with us on a blow-up queen bed and there was plenty of room to walk around it. It was nice to be able to have a wine cellar, of which we availed ourselves. And, the home theater was a fun perk. The housekeeper, Ruth, keeps everything spotless. We used the Chef, Osi, who prepared outstanding meals! Our delicious daily breakfasts were varied. Dinners were really terrific, too. There is a nice menu, from which you can pre-order your meals. A few in our group have severe food allergies, but Osi catered to their needs very well. Those three ate in every night. Others went out to eat a couple of times. Langosta Feliz is a typical Tico restaurant, with few Gringos in attendance. La Parcela, only five minutes away, has a gorgeous view, though parking is a challenge. Both are good, but go early. Olmer, the concierge, helped with home cooked menu choices and booked tours for us. He was very helpful! Get a 4-wheel drive vehicle.

Osa Canopy Tours in Uvita is a zip-lining experience that you'll never forget. We all loved it! But, it is not for the faint of heart. Go onto their site to see/read about it. The Jungle ATV tour in Uvita was a big hit, too. Very dusty, but fun. We took a truck ride up to Nauyuca Falls, which was a much better idea than trying to hike 4 km.straight up. Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary was fun to see,. Having a private guide in Manual Antonio Nat. Park was essential. Go to C.R. & stay here. Pura Vida!

Spectacular villa!!!

  • 5 of 5

The photos of this home just don't do it justice. Everything about it is first class. The quality of location, the views, the construction, the amenities, are all 5 Star level. The master suite is breathtaking with 180 degree views of the ocean and a master bath larger than most apartments. Within just a few minutes you have access to surfing, beaches, rainforest, waterfalls, and anything else you could want in Costa Rica. Additionally, this area has no large chain hotels or restaurants. Instead it is filled with incredibly beautiful and unique places that surprised us every time with their world-class quality and indulgent atmosphere. This place is the perfect home base for any dream vacation.

Spectacular Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation was a family trip to celebrate our 25th anniversary. The villa was spacious and met our needs perfectly. Loved the infinity pool and grounds! Beautiful birds and resident iguana at the pool. Bedrooms very nice. Sylvia our housekeeper kept up with us and our needs with 5 children. We enjoyed the chef Wilbur and Ryan his assistant. They prepared a delicious Costa Rican breakfast and a perfect dinner that we thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated. Raul our concierge was outstanding. His follow through was excellent. We felt taken care of everyday. He oriented us to villa, came every morning and evening. Made sure we got to our fun excursions. His recommendations for activities were spot on! Couldn't have been more pleased with his service. Always smiling!

This area of Costa Rica is amazing-so much to enjoy!

Absolute paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Paraiso is a beautifully designed and impeccably maintained home.

We enjoyed a week there in April. The concierge, chef and housekeeper made the trip hassle free. Access to the owners wine cellar was a great convenience. The views from the pool are simply spectacular.

Domincal is an easy going surf town and the concierge's recommendations for hiking, nature walks, jet ski tours and ziplines were fantastic.

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.
