Fantastic Deal for a Luxury Ocean View Estate in San Martin Dominical
Previously sold for $1.5 million, this new offering is basically listed at a fire sale price to sell quickly. Our team believes that this home presents the best value for any buyer looking for a luxury vacation rental or private home anywhere on the South Pacific Coast.
Sitting on 1.53 acres, this beautifully designed 4 bedroom/4.5 bathroom, 8,600sqft. home in San Martin Sur is the perfect home for a family wanting to relocate to the jungle. The home is currently being used as a private family residence, but it has excellent potential as a vacation rental. San Martin Sur is a private community located minutes from the beach and the high demand Escalares neighborhood. For a family, the home is gated with a fenced dog run, various play areas for kids, a spacious laundry room, multiple storage bodegas, two-car carport, and high-speed TV/internet. Also to cut down on expenses, the home has an excellent solar energy system.
The first floor of the home includes a guest bedroom with an en suite bathroom, easy access to the pool, and sunken living room with a built in couch along the northern wall. The kitchen includes bar seating and connects to a spacious dining room that leads to the pool. No matter what room you are in on the first floor, you have direct access to the expansive infinity pool. The outdoor entertaining area is the focal point of the home and is any social butterfly’s dream. With beautiful blue and whitewater ocean views and spacious covered patios, the area is large enough to host holidays, reunions, or local get togethers. You could also take advantage of the vacation rental demand in the area and rent the property out while you’re away.
Throughout the house you will see Japanese style ceilings. These “Furo” style ceilings add subtle character to the house in the way the lighting compliments the various levels to the ceiling. This is especially seen in the master bedroom and guest room on the second floor of the home. The master bedroom has a whirlpool tub with spectacular ocean views. The current owner said she can see whales from the bath—what a magical experience! The master opens up to a shared balcony with the guest room. The third level of the main house is an open-air studio. The space could be turned into a playroom, workout room, or an additional entertaining area.
The home has a separate guest suite that can be accessed from the pool or from the second level through a connected gate. Similar to the master bedroom, the guest suite features a magnificent ocean view. The guest suite is a great feature to have when friends and family come to town but want to be able to have their privacy. For a buyer who is interested in using this home as a vacation rental, the property includes a caretaker’s home to help maintain and manage the property while you are away. Also enhancing the viability of this property as an income-producing asset is that there are no HOA fees due that would cut into your profits.
The house is conveniently located minutes off of the coastal highway, but you will have a sense of complete privacy as it is nestled back inside of the surrounding jungle and ocean below. There are also no other houses in sight, so your only views are the rainforest canopy and the big blue ocean!
Whale Watching, Monkey Spotting, and Costa Ballena Living, Oh My!
This home has been known in the area as the “Whale Watcher’s Dream.” Every year from August to October humpback whales from the Northern and Southern hemisphere migrate to the warm waters off of the Costa Ballena where they mate and raise their young. Thousands of tourists come every year to see the whales in their natural habitat. How amazing would it be through your window and see a whale breaching directly outside? Well, that could be your reality in this home!
This home is located in San Martin Sur, an exclusive area with very few neighboring homes. Exotic wildlife including monkeys, sloths, and toucans are prone to enjoying the abundant amount of towering trees around the property. This is a beautiful setting that must be seen in person to truly appreciate. Located just a short 5 minute drive up the highway is Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary; this non-profit organization specializes in rehabilitating native animals to get them back to their natural habitat. This sanctuary would be an amazing place to visit or volunteer at if nature and wildlife are something that interests you.
We can't stress enough how great this location is. Ideally positioned between the popular surf town of Dominical and rapidly expanding Uvita, you and your guests can access the most popular tourism attractions with a short drive. Both towns have their own special charms in Costa Ballena; Uvita is where you will find more restaurants, big grocery stores, private schools, and almost anything your family needs to live comfortably. Dominical offers great surfing, the region's most popular brewery, a new outdoor public playground, and a farmer’s market every Friday with locally grown organic goods.
This home is sure to receive a lot of attention; if you are an interested buyer please contact us immediately.
