Located in a gated community 10 minutes from the beaches of Dominical, Casa Paz offers everything you want in a vacation home or investment property.

There is a 3 bed / 2 bath house and a separate 2 bed / 1 bath unit, which is great for renting or when the family is out of town for extended stays. Part of the appeal of this property is the use of hardwoods in the construction of the house and furnishings, as the owner was a generational professional lumberjack, carpenter, and artist. The second level of the main house was used as a dance studio for years and can easily be framed into two more bedrooms. The home features an open-air design and stunning mountain and jungle views.

Both houses are solid and legally built from the property's teak, ebony and Alizan wood. The trees were hand-picked for the house, and the owner cut and ground them himself. The 2x4 teak boards that were used to frame the walls of the house were once the owner's wedding benches, making each piece of wood sentimental.

All wood has been treated for insects to avoid pest problems. Each beam has been bolted and anchored for earthquake safety. The open concept kitchen and living room are beautiful. The kitchen cabinets are constructed from a local rose cedar. The dining room table was made from a single Alizan tree from the property.

There is also a wooden kitchen island with an additional sink on the side and a bench on the other side. Wooden beams and pendant lighting complete the look. The living room and dining room have large tempered glass windows.

There are three bedrooms on the main level. The master suite features a king-size bed and a handcrafted wooden desk. Inside the main bathroom, you will find the concrete walls that are finished in an Italian Ocher finish and carved by the owner, who is a professional artist. The shower is shell shaped with an adjustable hand shower. There is also a large bathtub. This bathroom gives it a luxurious and artistic atmosphere. The other two bedrooms include bunk beds in one room and a single bed in another, making it an ideal home for families.

The top floor had been used as a ballet studio for years, and world-famous dancers and ballet teachers danced there. The giant shutter on that level allowed for outdoor access and breathtaking views while practicing ballet. The ballet barre is still up, but the upper deck has been turned into a family fun area with a trampoline, swings, and mats. In the corner, there is a wooden table and chairs, giving you access to the abundant jungle of trees.

The single family home also offers some lovely furnishings. The kitchen includes many of the same kitchen cabinets, but a much smaller dining table. On the wraparound porch, there are some wooden rocking chairs and a wooden table to enjoy the fresh air and scenery. The large bedroom includes a king bed and two additional beds, while the smaller bedroom has a sofa bed.

The outside area is lovely with a patio table and chairs, a hammock to relax in and a round above ground pool. Fruit trees surround the houses and property and were planted when the house was built and are now beginning to bear fruit. You will have an abundance of wildlife on the property, including exotic wild birds and a few sloth families. Some of them, named Amable and Lucy, have lived there for years.

This property is conveniently just 10 minutes from the surf town of Dominical. It is only 30 minutes from Whale’s Tail in Uvita and 45 minutes from San Isidro.
