Welcome to Casa Paraiso - Sustainable Farm You will think that you have died and gone to heaven. The lovely four bedroom, two bathroom home is nestled atop a hill with a lovely view overlooking the verdant green valleys of the MonteVerde forests and pasturelands. From the master bedroom, there is a commanding view of the lush valley below. Fall asleep to the sounds of a rainstorm. If you are fortunate, you will have front rowseats to a spectacular lightning show. From the living room, you will be mesmerized by the parade of butterflies and hummingbirds that visit the abundant flowers throughout the day.

If you are fortunate, you will have front rowseats to a spectacular lightning show.

Despite the feeling of privacy and total seclusion, you are just a few minutes drive to the town of MonteVerde, fifteen minutes to the reserve, and within walking distance of many other local attractions including ziplining, coffee tours, and night tours.This truly offers the best of both worlds, allowing you to see the history and authentic beauty that has made Costa Rica and MonteVerde and international draw while being cose to amenities and all that is new within the area as well. However, the best part about this home is the ability you have to take a peek into authentic Costa Rican life. This is a third generation, small scale, sustainable dairy farm. The cows are pasture-fed and roam freely throughout the day. It is our vision to continue to operate this farm without the use of pesticides or chemical based fertilizers and to maintain a balance of pasturelands and forest. More

Interaction with guests
Guests are invited to take a tour of the farm. Come and see the cows up close and try your hand at milking. Take a tour of the garden, where you will find banana trees, the beginnings of a small scale coffee farm, and seasonal fruits and veggies under the care of our family. We also have sheep, goats, pigs, and poultry on the premesis that are all a part of the farm operation. MonteVerde is an area with a rich history in dairy production. My family has been a part of it since the time that oxen were used to transport milk daily to town.
