Adjacent to one another, these 2 large titled parcels are well situated and beautifully landscaped, offering a dream location to a retiring surfer, nature lover or even a savvy investor or developer. They are without dispute "A Top Option" in the area for construction of 2 or 3 upscale homes. Offering privacy, proximity to the surf and nearby town services, they are well suited as well for a small tourism project like a ‘B and B’ or rental cottages. The neighborhood is tranquillo- peppered with established "ex-pats" in retirement with nice homes along a beautiful winding tree lined road. Each of the lots are groomed and maintained by a caretaker who lives nearby and keeps an eye on things. The westerly lot of the two is tucked back off of a 'cul-de-sac' in the road- bordered by a beautiful corridor of jungle and along a small river gorge. A home on this lot would enjoy the ambiance of being immersed in a beautiful, natural landscape. The upper site, the easterly lot, enjoys the elevated placement with a coveted view through the trees out to the Golfo Dulce and Osa Peninsula. The lower half of the easterly lot is situated at the road front with mature trees and a hedgerow border. As I see it, the property has three separate and private entries off the road … meaning the natural layout of the land and the configuration along the road lend 3 natural building sites, making for easy and elegant multi-residential or lot split possibilities. Both lots offer more than 2 acres each with a combined total of better than 5 acres. Spring or well water. These lots compare very favorably to anything else we've seen on the Pavones market. Shop around and then come back to us. This listing is a "Must See".
Combined Price: $250,000

A surfers retirement fantasies don't get any better than this one! Prudent investors will consider too that this home could be a top dollar 'vacation rental' when not in personal use.
Amenities of this 3 bedroom home include nicely crafted hardwood finish details, a quality solar power system and a small pool built into the deck.

Wow! Talk about beautiful views! Located along the border of the protected Golfito Refuge, this titled lot is just outside the boundaries of the protected 'reserve' and there will be no inconveniences in pulling permits to build. It's on the public road with plenty of level area to support a grand estate home, an eco- lodge project or multi-residential development.
Located exactly one mile up the road from the last electric pole. Self generated power or a project to extend the utility grid would be needed to supply electricity.

Deep Water Yacht Basin, Old Hotel Site plus 2 more lots.
Back in the Banana Company days, this was the site of the elegant Miramar Hotel, a legend in it's time by all accounts of those who were here "in the day". After an untimely fire burned down a major part of this piece of history, the hotel was destroyed, leaving an "estate quality" property, mature landscape and trees, a stout retaining wall at the waterfront and a deep water basin....perfect for marina, commercial or upscale home development. The parcel was subdivided and the southerly half was sold, and is currently used as a private residence with a pier and dock. This half, now being re-introduced to the market, includes four parcels - 3 of which are untouched since the hotel days and one of which was used in the prior decade as a marine workshop and manager residence with docks and other marina facilities for a sport fishing fleet. The four parcels can be purchased individually or jointly. The seller will consider terms for a qualified buyer. All with Title.
Lot One 1215 m2 34 meters frontage $250,000
Lovely parcel for residential/multi-residential or commercial use. Deep draft at waterfront. Mature trees. Raised above street level with a deep community green zone along the street which could be "adopted" and incorporated into the private landscape plan.
Lot Two 1217 m2 34 meters frontage $250,000
Adjoining 'Lot One', this is the second beautiful parcel for residential/multi-residential or commercial use. Both parcels together would lend ample area for an elegant boutique hotel project. An all new "Miramar Hotel"? Mature trees. Elevated somewhat above street level.
Lot Three 5213 m2 Approx. 80 meters frontage $1,350,000
Gorgeous! A bit of "ruins" of the old hotel still remain including stately steps to the entry and others leading down to the waterfront. It makes your imagination run wild with the thought of how pretty this place was and could be. Exclusive estate-type home, upscale town homes with docks, a distinct hotel project... This is a beauty- and joined together with lots one and two?? Wow!
Lot Four 5019 m2 Approx. 79 meters frontage $1,050,000
This parcel lends itself most naturally to your commercial or multi-residential use. Marina, condominiums, hotel-restaurant, sport fishing club??? Includes yacht basin with 'breakwater', large industrial workshop, manager apartment and office.

About 5 Hectares of POTENTIAL! This parcel may be perfect for your private retirement home! A wooded site in the Purruja countryside only 7 minutes from Golfito and the waterfront. Springs of water, electricity on the road in front and it's in the apex of an area "gaining momentum" with new neighboring ex-pat home construction. Clear possession.
This old Banana Company home is in need of a full reconstruction.... needs work. But it's a great Golfito location with a VIEW out to the bay and would be well worth the effort of transformation to a lovely new townhouse for your retirement residence or rental income. The current layout is downstairs living and dining with attached open kitchen, a laundry room, bathroom and guest room/office. The stairwell leads up to a large common landing area and 3 basic bedrooms. I can't help but imagine laying this second level out differently to create 3 small or 2 larger bedrooms and an added bathroom plus opening it up in front to add a veranda over the entry breezeway below. The view to the bay entry is quite nice and you'd be able to take full advantage of the westerly orientation, enjoying sunsets over the water with the right remodel design. In our photos you can see the neighboring unit, fully remodeled previously to take advantage of this view. A Titled property. Convenient to town. Corner lot. The side yard of the house is a vacant area for car parking and boat on trailer but would be area available to expand the home if you wanted a larger place, enclosed yard or garage. This one will fill the bill for several of you investors or budget retirees.

A Collection of 5 distinct Eco-sites of 5,100 m2 each
Located on a rural public road just 15 minutes outside of Golfito and 30 minutes from Rio Claro on the road to La Gamba village, a few miles before the Esquinas Rainforest Lodge "Biological Station" and adjacent to the Avellan Trails and Waterfall - Surrounded by the Piedras Blancas National Park.... This new to the market collection of lots for construction will meet the criteria of many who are looking for a natural forested setting outside the urban area of Golfito without going "too remote". An eco-lodge project, private retirement home or a small private community development would all fit beautifully on one or more of these sites, immersed in the exceptional natural beauty of the area. Over the past 10 years a great deal of the private wilderness areas and the larger parcels have been picked up by preservationists and investors interested in keeping this area of Golfito and it's development path as natural and 'green' as possible. The existing close knit La Gamba community is determined as well to preserve themselves as an example of an ecologically balanced community dedicated to preservation and responsible exploitation of their tropical surrounds. To date, outside the primary village, only a few private homes have broken ground in the immediate area, planting the seeds for what will most likely be a slow but certain growth community. Both water and electricity are available at the street. Each lot is accessed by a private easement off the public road.

Perched above town along a turn in the old “Tower Road”, you will encounter this beautiful titled lot with expansive views over Golfito Bay, the island and beyond to the Osa Peninsula, Golfo Dulce, and Pacific Ocean!
The property is partially forested with a perfect clearing for your construction at low level. About 7,000 square meters (1.75 Acres) of land in total, offering aprox. ¾ quarters of an acre clear of significant trees to plan your sustainable project. The rest of the land would logically be part of the wildlife corridor, an area for conservation.
A truly “AWESOME VIEW”!! Located within the Golfito Wildlife Reserve, this is one of a small handful of exclusive, titled parcels, with the right to construct along that road – a zoning plan is established to protect the precious rainforest corridor and Golfito watershed.
"Off the grid" but on a year round maintained road less than 10 min from town, this would be an excellent location for a small eco project or your private retreat home.

This property, located at the entry to the rural countryside area of Golfito, was formerly a popular bar-restaurant location with a dance floor and secure off street parking. It’s tranquillo location, set between several nice homes and a few restaurant and cabina projects could lend itself to either a residential, multi-residential or commercial project. The seller had picked this property up after several years of abandonment. He made a redevelopment plan and was in the beginning stages of the transition when the project was suspended. A new septic system was installed, an outdoor “Rancho Style” bar-BBQ pavilion was built in, the old build out was removed and one end of the building was roughed out as a caretaker apartment…and then “the economic crisis” hit. Like so many others, this seller has not been able to return to the project in a few years and now feels he realistically will not be able to at any time in the foreseeable future. As it stands, there is a lot of potential here – for either commercial or residential use. It could elegantly support a few townhomes or a small cabina project. It could be developed into a very nice home site with all the amenities…. And further it could support a mixed use such as a residence to the west and a separate entry business to the east. I can imagine this as a successful location for a mechanic, storage units, spa services, a family restaurant with recreational areas, or ???? The lot is fully fenced and surrounded lovely with landscape. It's nearest neighbors are 'higher end homes' of ex-pats and nationals.
Set back off the road on the main artery into Golfito, this property is well situated and versatile. I really do consider it to be one of the best values on the market for any use.

As we walked the trails of this forested property, the seller took a moment to pause in a few of his favorite spots....He reflected on his 20 years living in 'this magical place' on the La Purruja creekside and he told me he'd given it the name "Halcyon" all those years ago. The dictionary defines the verb "halcyon" as pertaining to calm or peaceful - having tranquility... and I'd say that's a fair description of this "secret" property. Down an access road off the main artery into Golfito, you will find these 2 titled properties, joined together by an access trail through the jungle. If privacy and nature are on your list, this one should be on your tour list. Parcel 1 measures over 13.5 hectares and is currently held for conservation only and features access to the creek for swimming and a waterfall - I could imagine an eco-tourism project that would tuck a couple cabins back on it without too much disturbance to the nature surrounding it. Parcel 2 measures just under 1/2 hectare and was the selected home site. It has a 2 story block and cement structure on it - laid out for use as a 'duplex' with a roof garden. The project was never finished and to date is completed to the 'gray stage' only; inhabited by the seller. A buyer would need to pick up and 'dust off' the project to put it back on track or modify it to suit it's new intended use. In either event, it looks to be a strong structure and is in no way a "tear down". City water, telephone and power. Contact us for more information and details on this one. The owner is motivated and will consider dividing the property into smaller parcels if that was of interest to the right buyer. He's also willing to negotiate terms of payment. Asking $300,000.
The "back bay" of Golfito, along the Coast of La Purruja, is a lovely virtually undeveloped wilderness zone, often forgotten due to certain inconveniences - foremost being its location "so far off the grid".... UNTIL NOW! Yes, it's true. The "no easy access" status is scheduled to come to an end. This 6 hectare plus farm will soon offer you 2 entries. One, by boat via the maritime zone, and the second by a new rural road via a countryside entry. In good company with several other developer owned rain forest estate sites overlooking the Golfito Bay, this property is unique in that it offers 'the dream' of nature and view without the encumbrances of the Golfito Forest Reserve or National Park zoning. That means easier access to permits for construction . Contact us for more information.

As you drop down into town, find 37 hectares of forested and secondary growth land at the entry to Golfito..... beginning along town's primary road and rising up the mountain to a clear level parcel perched above town. Come look at the options for building on the portions down closer to the towns sea level..... and then travel up the rainforest "Tower Road" and down the old logging road to another option for building under the canopy - off the grid. Lots of forested land for preservation. Fantastic Eco-oriented neighbors. Consider that segregation to create 2 properties might be a good option. Access on the upper road is year round but it is recommended for visits in 4x4 vehicles only. Contact us for more information.
