Furnished Home in Puerto Jimenez with Fishing Boat and Truck
Located approximately 12km north of the fishing town of Puerto Jimenez on the Osa Peninsula, this wonderful home offers great value for the asking price. From the high-end construction, to the convenient location minutes to the beach, a similar home of this quality would cost much more if it were situated further up the coast in high-demand tourist destinations such as Manuel Antonio or Dominical. Puerto Jimenez is located inside of the Golfo Dulce (Sweet Gulf), includes a regional airport, and is the gateway to the Osa Peninsula and Corcovado National Park – the "Crown Jewel" of the Costa Rican National Park System. If you are seeking incredible value for a quiet getaway home in Costa Rica, this is definitely the place for you!
Situated on a 1 hectare (2 ½ acre) lot inside a 31-acre community consisting of about 13 lots of various sizes, the home is private and secure and cannot be seen from any neighboring properties or roads. All but one of the lots have been sold and only one other home has been built in the community (besides the caretaker’s home).
The size of the home is approximately 3,600 square feet with 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, spacious living area, exterior covered “rancho”, an infinity swimming pool, and a rainforest lounge set inside of secondary forest. From the front of the home and the outdoor entertaining spaces, you will enjoy a lush rainforest setting with a peek-a-boo view of the Gulfo Dulce.
Wildlife and bird watching are excellent with squirrel monkeys, scarlet macaws, toucans, parrots, hawks, hummingbirds, and virtually every other bird species on the Osa Peninsula regularly visiting the property. The grounds are beautifully landscaped highlighted by an abundant variety of fruit trees planted on and around the property.

The home is solidly constructed of concrete and steel with natural stone and hardwood finishes. All furnishings and appliances are included in the sale as well as decorative artwork found throughout the residence. The home is fully air-conditioned with split AC units of various sizes depending on the size of the room being conditioned.
The home is currently connected to Sky TV via satellite and has very good internet and wifi service.
A 20 KW Kohler generator provides backup power and is automatically switched on if it senses a loss of grid power. This generator will operate the entire house except for the largest AC unit and runs on propane.
Power is supplied by the ICE power grid and water is provided by a private underground spring. There is also an ultraviolet filter system to ensure water purity. There is a security system with a loud siren installed in the home. Recent maintenance of the home includes new insulation and painting of the roof. A full-time caretaker occupies a home at the entrance to the community. He and his family have lived there for at least 10 years. He is an independent contractor, and the monthly fee for property security and upkeep is $170 US.
Adventurers Paradise with Toyota Truck, Panga Boat, and Kayaks Included
The home conveniently includes an attached 1 car garage and a separate garage situated below the house. The detached garage which is used for car, boat and miscellaneous storage. It also includes a secure lock-up room for storing personal items if you were to rent out the property as a vacation rental. By the way, everything in this garage is included in the asking price!
Included is a 2016 Toyota Hilux pickup in excellent condition with about 11,000 km on it (as of January 2018). Do you like to fish or want to explore the Gulfo Dulce? A 22.5-foot panga boat with a 150 horsepower Suzuki outboard engine is also included in the sale! The boat was built in 2010 and the engine has less than 200 hours on it. Feel like paddling through amazing mangroves teeming with wildlife? Two double kayaks with gear are also included. While the property is located only 3km from a boat launch (boat trailer included), private mooring, security, and maintenance are available at very reasonable rates.
As we mentioned earlier, this offering provides a lot of bang for the buck and it cannot get much more "turn-key" than this!
