About the Property
Two-story Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths. Sleeps 6
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 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.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

VRBO Bear stayed here:
The VRBO bear and family had a fantastic, relaxing getaway thanks to this amazing property in Montezuma Beach! The spacious luxury villa had so many great amenities that made the stay comfortable and convenient. These amenities included a garage for the Bear-mobile, A/C unit in each room for each guest’s personalized comfort, patios on both floors with incredible scenic views of the ocean and wildlife, a full kitchen, washer/dryer, grill, an awesome salt water pool (complete with color-changing pool lights), and so much more. We appreciated that the owners had detailed information for the house, the area, and contact information in case of any issues. The house is up on a hill just outside of Montezuma Beach which was perfect for making us feel like we were in a secluded jungle-esque area yet we knew we could easily go into town for some delicious eats and easy access to groceries or adventure tours or THE BEACH! Also, the family couldn’t believe the views of the sunrise over the ocean each day; they were majestic! We particularly enjoyed doing yoga (mats provided at the house) out on the terrace each day. This was one of the best trips we’ve ever taken and we’re grateful for everything that Casa Solipaz had to offer! We have already told several friends about this gem and we will be back! Pura Vida!!The VRBO Bear

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, Costa Rica:
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.
