La Casa de Paz is a 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom main home in El Aguacate, Costa Rica.
This lovely property is set on a quiet hill with a private brick driveway leading up to a beautiful home with all the modern conveniences. The property also comprises a self contained cabina (studio or rental apt.) behind the house separated by a 650 sq. ft. walled privacy garden.
Only 10 minutes away is the fast growing town of Nuevo Arenal which offers grocery shopping, cafes and restaurants, Austrian and German bakeries, banks and a medical clinic. Beyond Arenal is the busy tourism town of Fortuna. Guests will love to visit you since in Fortuna there are various attractions: wandering the art galleries, horseback riding, crossing the suspension bridges, , taking canopy tour and trying out the zip lines, waterfall rappelling, rafting and visiting a serpentarium, butterfly gardens, a botanical garden, a lovely waterfall (La Catarata de La Fortuna), the Hot Springs (Baldi and Tabacon), Lake Arenal, tours to caves (Venado) and the nearby Cano Negro Wildlife Refuge and National Park.
El Aguacate is an area where the temperature averages 70F. From the front window of this lovely home the unsurpassed view attractions are the Arenal Volcano in all its majesty, 25 mile long Lake Arenal and the cordillera de Tilaran (Continental Divide). The nearby parks contain roughly half of the species of land-dwelling vertebrates (birds, mammals, reptiles, and amphibians) known in Costa Rica.
The Liberia International Airport is a short drive of 1.5 hours on paved roads . Liberia, the capital city of Guanacaste Province in which this home is located is the main center for people living on the Northern Pacific Beaches and has all necessary services and shopping growing fast and replacing the past need for driving to San Jose with less than half the travel time.
This hillside home has an uninterrupted view of the Arenal Volcano. You can see the steam and occasionally a small amount of lava cascading over the side. The volcano was dormant from about 1500 AD until July 29, 1968. It retained its almost perfect conical shape and with its continuing activity. Arenal is everyone’s image of a typical volcano. This home was chosen for its fantastic view but is a safe distance from the volcano.
Please note that this view cannot be seen from inside the cabin/apt. however, through the sliding glass doors of the apt., you can see the lush private walled garden.
Next to this home a one acre lot is available for sale with the same fantastic views for only an additional $39,000. Perhaps you would like to extend rooms to have a Bed & Breakfast or Restaurant on this extra property.
This home has been used for rental income and would be a wonderful retirement family home. You will wake up to a wondrous Hollywood View and wonder at its beauty.
