The House

Serenity Garden Home is very unique, there are very few living roof homes in Costa Rica and Saint Michaels has 4 of them. We have another 2 bedroom living roof home at Saint Michaels listed.

The reason there are so few living roof homes is that they are very expensive to build. The house is built tough to last forever with thick concrete walls and a concrete roof. You can maximize the land by growing more vegetables and fruits on your roof. Additionally, the ivy plant and concrete roof with soil really make the home cool, this home is highly efficient. A gray water system takes water from the shower and kitchen and waters the plants outside.

The living area of the home is 60m2 and there is another 40 plus square meters under a roof that could be used as outdoor living areas or built as additional rooms.

The teak wood finishes in the bathroom and kitchen really bring out a natural feel to the home.

A highly efficient air conditioner is barely needed but there is one installed that cools the entire home very fast.

The house is located about 5km down the road going to Puriscal. It takes about 20 minutes to get to Bejuco Beach. You are close enough to the ocean to hear the waves crash in the morning and there are ocean views from the top parts of Saint Michaels Eco Village.

Community Gardens

Saint Michaels Eco Village

You have rights to the rest of the eco-village if you help out with work or pay a $45 monthly fee. There is a huge salt water swimming pool with 2 smaller kiddy pools. A massive “rancho” with a kitchen and BBQ pit for hosting events. A recycling center, tilapia pond, gardens, and a barn. There is even a professional disc golf course on the property.

There is land that you can pay a minimal fee to have a cow on and all the work will be done for you.

The owner of Saint Michael’s just built an immaculate beach house at Palo Seco right on the beach that active community members can have access to.

Business Opportunities

This could be a unique opportunity for someone that is interested in starting up a yoga retreat, organic medicine course, permaculture course or any other natural idea you have. You can use the huge permaculture farm at Saint Michael Eco-Village to get your business going right away at a minimal cost.

The owner has already agreed to build a yoga platform under an impressive tree. He is looking for someone to come and help him run the farm and bring it to its full potential. You would be compensated greatly not only in all the money from the course you teach but also all the commissions you would get from renting out the other vacation rentals on the property. There is a possibility of taking over managing the vacation rentals on Airbnb, an 18% commission would be paid as well.

The house has enough room for another home to be built and you could even build a cob home gradually with students teaching the course. Use your imagination, the sky’s the limit.

There are 8 other vacation rentals on the property you could be making money on plus a 4 bedroom beach house at Palo Seco.

The beach house at Palo Seco would be a perfect spot to teach a yoga course and surfing.

Pay 50% now and finance the rest with the money you make from the courses, vacation rentals and whatever crazy idea you come up with.
