Ocean View Villas In Escaleras With Pool, Gym, Yoga Pavilion And Buildable Land
This is one of the most iconic properties in the Costa Ballena area. The property encompasses 2.47 acres of mostly usable land with a gorgeous ocean view in the most desirable part of Escaleras. There are 3 villas with an amazing pool area, plus a yoga/gym pavilion. Outstanding ocean views may be enjoyed from every structure.
This land was once owned by one of the original ex-pat pioneers of Escaleras who had the privilege to choose among the best spots in the whole Southern Zone. This property has an ideal location between Dominical and Uvita. There is easy access on a well-maintained road only 5-6 minutes off the pavement. Situated at the perfect elevation for ocean and mountain breezes and outstanding ocean views with sunsets part of the year.
Successful Established Income Producing Rental Business
Currently the owners live onsite and run a successful AirBnB rental business which new buyers could continue.
Villa 1 is located at the top of the property and has its own gated entrance and parking. Recently completed in 2019 this 3 bedroom and 2 bath villa was built to rent out as an entire home or as two Airbnb style units. The 2 bedroom and 1 bath unit has a private kitchen and living room. The living room and both bedrooms have sliding glass doors that open to the covered terrace.
A separate entrance leads to the efficiency suite with its own kitchenette and full bath. This unit could be the 3rd bedroom of an entire home rental or its own 1 bedroom rental unit if someone operated a boutique hotel or BnB. The huge covered wrap around deck provides outdoor dining and seating for enjoying the views of the ocean and the pool area below.
One of the original structures on the property; Villa 2 is a 1 bedroom villa with a full bath, kitchen and dining area. There is a spacious covered deck for lounging while enjoying the ocean views. Villa 2 was completely renovated in 2018. The many improvements include new Decra roofing, new gutters, deck and roof extension to cover outdoor deck area, tongue and grove ceiling, and new fans. There is also a new bathroom sink and new Septic tank.
Villa 3 was also one of the original structures on the property; although now it looks brand new. This villa was completely gutted and renovated in 2018 as one large open space for a studio style rental or guest villa. Improvements include a new roof with expensive Decra roofing to lessen the sound of the rain, new gutters, and new tongue and groove ceiling on the inside of the villa. There are also new sliding glass doors along entire view side of the villa and a new bathroom. The concrete floors inside and out on the covered porch have been polished. A wall from the old kitchen was removed to increased the usable floor plan and a new kitchen was built in its place.
Beautiful Pool Area With New Rancho And Hardwood Deck
The beautiful, spacious Ipe hardwood deck around the pool was recently sanded and stained. There is a brand new rancho in the same style as the Villas with plenty of room for a BBQ grill and dining area or gathering place for family, friends, and guests. If the property was used commercially then the resort style pool area is ready to go.
Open Pavilion Gym/Yoga Studio
A large open pavilion was completed in 2022 as with rubber exercise floor matting to make the perfect gym and/or yoga space. The structure has a half bathroom which would be easy to convert into a full bath by adding a shower. It would be possible to close in part of the structure to make an additional stand-alone rental villa.
Mature Landscaping With Plenty Of Room For Future Construction
This property has some of the most usable land available in the Escaleras mountains. It is a true rarity. The gently sloped terrain with ocean views would allow a new owner to build their dream estate home or continue to construct more villas to build a rental business and/or even boutique resort. There is plenty of area to build on the lower half of the land. The rocks and boulders scattered throughout make for interesting landscaping possibilities. There are also 20-year-old royal palms and mature landscaping around the pool and villas; plus many types of fruit trees including: mango, citrus, papaya, coconut palms, abiu (star apple/caimito) and more. Plus a ton of new fruit trees were planted last year for future edible landscaping.
Potential Commercial Use As A Boutique Hotel Or Vacation Rental Business
The property has public road frontage allowing for commercial use and also a concession well onsite. The water currently used by the property comes from a community system above; but having its own legal well concession is a substantial benefit if future owner decided to use the property commercially.
There is hard wired fiber optic internet connected to property. This is a unique amenity for the mountains in this area and huge value for those wanting to cyber commute from paradise.
Come realize your dream in Costa Rica. Whether it’s a private family estate or vacation rental business while living onsite, or commercial boutique hotel or wedding destination, whatever your heart and soul desire to create is possible on this iconic piece of land.
