Villa Paraiso is a spectacular ocean view estate, sitting within 13-acres of lush, tropical grounds on the Nicoya Peninsula of Costa Rica. The private compound sits on a bluff above the laid-back, bohemian beach town of Montezuma, with breathtaking views out over the Pacific Ocean and along the dramatic coastline. The Nicoya Peninsula is known for its white-sand beaches, consistent year-round surf and untouched coastal landscapes. With over 16,000 sq. ft. of the highest quality construction and interior design, Villa Paraiso offers a truly luxurious experience.
The main house measures 10,600 sq. ft. and was designed by renowned Costa Rican architect Ronald Zurcher (the designer of Costa Rica’s only Four Seasons Hotel). There are four spacious guest rooms on the ground floor, with a sumptuous master suite upstairs. From every room there are stunning ocean and coastal views. The living room and formal dining room open out on to the terrace and pool area. The ceiling of the dining room, meticulously constructed from 80-year-old brick, salvaged from San Jose, arches over an elegant 14-seat dining table. The spacious chef’s kitchen includes gas hobs, a center island with a pure black granite counter top and top-of-the-range appliances. There is also a large wine cellar, created for wine connoisseurs and an impressive home-theatre room – with a home entertainment unit, incredible surround sound and Wi-Fi. The outdoor area includes a large infinity pool with a swim-up bar; a barbeque and TV located inside the outdoor kitchen; and a wood burning oven that is perfect for pizza nights. Throughout the house you will find floors and walls finished with elegant stone sourced from Italy, Spain, Turkey, Brazil, Colombia and the US; furniture and doors crafted from tropical cedar; custom-made crystal light fittings from Europe; and many other beautiful design touches and details. An internal brick pathway, bordered either side with tropical landscaped gardens, takes you to the cliff-top gym, office and artist’s studio. Perched upon the cliff top, the 1,780 sq. ft. building has 180 degree views out over the Pacific Ocean. The scenery here is dramatic and breathtaking. In addition to these main living areas, there is an impressive 100-meter private suspension bridge; a large four-horse stable; a separate studio apartment; a helipad; a three-bedroom staff house; and spacious 4-bay garage area. Every detail of this property has been carefully planned out and meticulously maintained. Villa Paraiso offers absolute privacy and luxury in the tropical paradise of the Nicoya Peninsula.
