Caribbean Real Estate
If you are researching Caribbean real estate, this home for sale by owner in Cahuita, Costa Rica represents a tremendous opportunity as either a retirement home, vacation home or as an investment property. Built as a vacation rental and part-time residence by its original owner, this property provides tranquility, a plethora of wild life and is within walking distance to several area beaches.
Located just off the main beach road at Playa Negra, the property is lush with tropical foliage. Neighbors are kind, friendly and helpful with a variety of local business, including some great restaurants, near by. A surfer's paradise, most of Cahuita beaches are void of crowds, with world class surf spots along the Caribbean coastline…many of which are very close to Casa Jacqueline. The property lends itself to a variety of possibilities and has been well maintained.
Beach House for Sale
Set back off the road, this 32,000 + square foot (3049.20 m2) lot includes a well-maintained yet fun and quirky styled beach house in Cahuita with unique charm from both its interior and exterior. There are three levels to the house, which is approximately 1800 square feet. The main floor consists of the primary living area and a small but efficient kitchen with plenty of windows throughout. A cement patio at the main entrance welcomes owner and guests and offers a newly installed, private outdoor shower.
The second level, built entirely of wood, is comprised of 2 bedrooms, with closets and built-in bookcases and tables. Additionally, there is a beautifully tiled, good sized, complete bathroom with terrific hot water pressure. A deep, roofed porch wraps around three sides of the house on this second level with numerous windows providing an almost tree-house effect; perfect viewing for bird and wildlife observation.
The third and top level houses a third bedroom, ideal as an office or writer's retreat. All rooms include an overhead electric fan and electrical outlets.
Water is provided via a natural, underground spring for clean, fresh drinking water. There is an electric pump for the well water to the house; kitchen offers both well water and rain water (collected and gravity fed) usage. The house is wired for 110v electrical. An electric hot water heater serves the bathroom shower.
The house is replete with basic furnishings: 3 quality, full sized beds, dining room table and 4 chairs, bar stool chairs, lounge chairs, quality beds and kitchen appliances (gas stove and refrigerator). A bodega off the main entrance provides secure storage.
Costa Rica Beaches
The property, due to its close proximity to Cahuita, Costa Rica beaches and forests, Cahuita National Park, and surrounding tourist areas such as Puerto Viejo, lends itself ideally to development as a small tourism facility. Because it is situated just outside the mean tidal zone, permits may be acquired. Although a time consuming process, if the footprint intended is reasonable and all issues are addressed, the new owner could well develop a few small casitas, or bungalows, for vacation rentals, or a restaurant, tours and/or services to generate self-sustaining income. Alternatively, if your goal is simply to retire in Costa Rica, build your dream house on this lush tropical or make improvements to suit to the existing house.
Priced fairly at $290,000 $250,000 (Price Reduced!), the owner is willing to accept all reasonable offers. This is a cash only deal. No terms are on offer. If you would like to view the property arrangements can be made with my neighboring property managers to show; the house may not be available for viewing, however, while rented to vacationers.
