Golfito , Costa Rica Real Estate  & Property Management 

 Lovely Tropical Lifestyle Home on 10 hectares


       Only minutes from the local Golfito marinas and town center, this large 10 hectare 'gentlemans finca' is set off the road with a private gated entry.

Might this be exactly what you've been looking for? 

      Buyers seeking "the dream retirement home" full or part time will want to consider viewing this one. The property features the primary home with a large bedroom, bathroom, utility room and a modern great room floor plan that includes the kitchen, dining area and living room.  Additionally  a small 1 bedroom home at the entry of the driveway in is a perfect rental, mother-in-law unit or caretaker quarters.  2 lovely guest rooms sit behind the home elevated on the hillside with their own small view patios and a private BBQ porch.  The property further offers a large secure storage room plus an additional secure garage, a large covered work shed and  a car port plus many options for boat on trailer storage. Extensive garden trails wander through the natural and landscaped tropical gardens. The sellers are including furnishings in excellent condition and a small array of equipment for maintenance and recreation.  

      Listed in the national registry as 2 separate but adjoined titled parcels, the primary home and majority of the acerage is registered as one parcel with the large adjacent road frontage lot for construction duly registered with it's own title. Consider that this distinction of 2 legal parcels could allow for an easy marketing plan, selling the street front lot for a return on your investment.  As an alternative, establish your own business location there in this great location at the entry to town. Note that there is a great deal of open land within this property that could be segregated and further developed or sold as additional homesites.

       The primary home of block and cement has been recently remodeled.  Formerly a tropical open rancho style layout, the new look and fresh improvements add an elegance and permitted small upgrades including air conditioning and an enclosed master bedroom. he two guest cabinas. The large kitchen plus outdoor BBQ patio makes entertaining a pleasure. A covered patio wraps around and features an infinity plunge-pool and outdoor dining set up.... all taking full advantage of the beautiful forest and bay views. This home, as it is, could easily serve as the base for a small private sport fishing operation with plenty of room for added cabinas or as a bed and breakfast hosting guests 'Airbnb' style for supplemental income.  A very impressive "stand out" property.

Asking $345,000.

Residential & Commercial Property

Suggested as a "Best Value" Multi-Use Property
"A Good Neighborhood is Everything".  This property, located at the entry to the rural countryside area of Golfito, was formerly a popular bar-restaurant minutes outside of the 'banana town'.  It had a reputation for a rockin' dance floor and secure off street parking. It was purchased a decade later after years of abandonment with the idea of a complete overhaul and grand re-opening. New septic and BBQ ranchito were installed and plans began to be drawn. And then the project developer was called back to the U.S. on business. The project was put on ice. The economy crashed. And the rest is history that leads to a GREAT DEAL for a buyer.  It’s an area that is now considered  "upscale" in real estate potential. It's peaceful location is set between several new or very nice homes, a few restaurant and several small private lodges. It could lend itself to a private residence, a multi-residential or almost any kind of commercial project.   Sincerely, I can imagine this as a successful location for almost anything from an elegant restaurant to a boat mechanic shop.  It's a good one for a combo of a business base along with the residence on site.  Yoga studio with salon and spa services to storage units.... No kidding.  Check this one out - especially if you are considering business locations or something multi-residential.  The lot is fully fenced.   Yes, it's been on the market a long time. But I really do consider it to be one of the best values in Golfito real estate.
