TRANQUIL OCEAN VIEW, CONSTANT BREEZES, ECO-FRIENDLY!

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Montezuma - Casa Solipaz

Two-story Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths. Sleeps 6

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.

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!

Ginette Poirier purchased this house in 2012

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.

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.

AMAZING HOME WITH INCREDIBLE VIEWS

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I stayed in this amazing home and will definitely be coming back. Everything about this house was great and the views are simply incredible. We really appreciated how well stocked the house was and great cookware. We ate dinner everynight at the house and simply enjoyed the views from the pool and upper deck off the master bedroom. The beds were comfortable as well as the outdoor furniture. The property manager was great and was able to attend to our needs. This is a great place to stay and we definitely recommend staying here. Thanks for everything!!

Owner's Response: Caroline and Kevin,
Thanks for the great review! It was so nice to meet you both. I'm glad you enjoyed the house, the views, the horizon pool and the kitchen - we cook there often as well. It's nice, sometimes, to be able to stay in and enjoy a wonderful homemade meal. And, our guests always have the option of heading out to some awesome nearby restaurants. Best of both worlds.
We look forward to having you visit again one day soon.
Many thanks again,
Kathy and Kevin

LOVELY, AMAZING, PERFECT!

  • 5 out of 5
Casa Solipaz is a beautiful home with a fabulous view of the ocean and surrounding *jungle*! We spent a week there over the summer and I would highly recommend it to friends visiting Costa Rica. The house looks exactly like the online pictures - gorgeous, clean & comfortable. The pool was also clean and well-maintained - perfect to jump in at all hours :) Our boys were in the pool multiple times each day. We spent plenty of time while here relaxing at the home- swimming, cooking, reading, playing cards, meditating, watching the the view, and just chilling :) We went for many walks around the surrounding community - Armonia... which were always beautiful and exciting as we saw many birds flying and monkeys jumping around in the many trees. The view of the ocean from this home was incredibly calming. There are great beaches, nice hikes, delicious food and fun surf spots quite close. Gini is fantastic! She checked in regularly to make sure we had everything we needed and responded immediately anytime we called. She directed us to local beaches, great restaurants, nearby shopping, and answered any and all questions we had. A perfect adventure & incredible vacation in Montezuma at the lovely Casa Solipaz. We can't wait to return!

Owner's Response: Hi, Kathy,
So nice to hear from you; it's been a while since you were our guests. I hope this means you're thinking about coming back?
You captured so well the essence of Casa Solipaz and Armonia Eco-Village in your review - from the abundant wildlife to the peace of our view and the restfulness of just being in the house.
We are so close to activities in town and the surrounding area while still being an oasis of calm.
Like most of our guests, you pinpointed one of the reasons our guests love Casa Solipaz: our fantastic property manager, Gini. She is very friendly, speaks three languages, and is a genuinely nice person and efficient manager. We are very lucky to have her.
Hope to see you again soon. Many thanks,
Kathy Swanwick, owner, Casa Solipaz

GREAT PLACE TO STAY***

  • 5 out of 5
The views from this house are stunning - love the infinity pool. The house itself is beautiful and very well kept...even some fun surprises like a walk in shower room! The kitchen was great and had everything we needed - the pizza oven was AWESOME. Wi-fi worked well during our whole stay. You may get some furry visitors in the back :) The property manager was awesome and very accommodating!
Thanks Casa Solipaz!

Gini really is awesome, isn't she? She is such a valuable addition to our Costa Rican experience!
And I'm happy you enjoyed the house! We so love it there and our guests have seemed to share our enthusiasm for the house, the view, the jungle and the Montezuma area in general.
I do hope that you'll come back to stay again one day!
Pura Vida,

EXQUISITE HOUSE IN A WONDERFUL LOCATION!

  • 5 out of 5
My family recently at Casa Solipaz and couldn't have been any more pleased. The house is spacious, well decorated, clean, modern and well equipped. The views of the sunrise over the Pacific from the master bedroom are simply amazing. While just minutes away from Montezuma, the house affords the utmost in comfort and privacy. Kathy and Gini were both very helpful and accommodating. We can't wait to return!

Owner's Response: Patrick,
We can't wait for you to return! We have had just the loveliest guests who really "get" Casa Solipaz: the beauty and seclusion if its location; the amazing sunrises and sunsets; the proximity to - yet distance from - the fun of Montezuma, and the tranquility afforded by our infinity pool and spacious patios.
Many thanks for your generous review.
All the best,
Kathy, owner, Casa Solipaz

PEACEFUL, TRANQUIL PARADISE

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I and two other couples spent a glorious week at this magnificent property. We were made to feel welcome from the moment that we made our reservation till the moment we reluctantly had to leave to return home. Kathy, the owner, and Gini, the property manager, were unbelievably helpful in all aspects of our stay. Gini bought us fruit and vegetables before our stay and brought us a BBQ so we could cook outside. And the wood-fired pizza oven outside was lots of fun! The house itself was beyond belief. All 3 bedrooms have their own spacious bathrooms (we had the outdoor shower....loved it!). The beds and linens were very comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed for our meals, most of which we cooked at the house because we didn't want to leave. The highlight of the house was the infinity pool. We were in that pool from morning sunrise to night star-gazing. The veranda with the dinner table, comfortable chairs and chaise lounges, and multiple fans made our stay there more pleasurable than we could ever have hoped for. The location was spectacular. We had a beautiful view of the ocean, watching the sun rise each morning. The wildlife and birds were so fun to watch. We were visited by monkeys, coati mundis, agoutis and many, many beautiful birds. The location of the house was so quiet and peaceful that we came home from our vacation rested and relaxed. I would highly recommend this house. We will be back again next year.

Owner's Response: Hi, Debbie and Bill,
First, I am so pleased to see that you are booked again for next year! I was very touched to see that you had enjoyed your stay at Casa Solipaz so much.
I know what you mean about hating to leave - my daughter and I just snuck in a few nights there and it was really tough to head out! We sat outside after swimming on our last night and just took in the vastness of the sky over the moonlit ocean, surrounded by the jungle. For me, words cannot describe the feeling.
I appreciate your comments about the location, beauty and functionality of the house. We built it to take advantage of the ocean breezes, so that the numerous fans throughout the house provide really lovely cooling on most days without having to be closed in with air conditioning (although we do have a/c in each room for the days it is needed!). Open the front and back doors and windows and just breathe and enjoy!
I am happy you enjoyed the pool and the oven - all great fun.
Thank you for mentioning how wonderful Gini is! She really is very concerned that each guest enjoys their time at the house as much as possible.
Looking forward to your next visit!
Many thanks for the great review,
Kathy

SECLUDED PARADISE

  • 5 out of 5
This was a beautiful, secluded home, thick in the jungle with lots of wildlife. The house was very clean with all the amenities needed, along with ceiling fans in every room. There were six of us (three couples), and we each had our own bedroom, bathroom, and patio. But then we would all gather in the kitchen/living area, front patio, and upper deck for meals, happy hours, and relaxation. In town, we enjoyed the locals, bars and restaurants (highly recommend Puggo's and Cocolores), and lots of adventures: Isla Tortuga, hiking and waterfalls, the beach and surfing, and zip-lining under the canopy.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Kurt,
That's the thing about Casa Solipaz - you're right in the thick of the jungle magic, with all the modern conveniences of home. Sounds like you got in a bunch of fun activities! I agree about Puggo's and Cocolores - excellent food and atmosphere!
I hope we see you back again one day soon.
Many thanks,
Kathy, owner, Casa Solipaz
