A Prime Property for a boutique hotel, retreat center, luxury spa or vacation rental property…
The surroundings of this 2.47-acre property are a site to behold…enveloped in the lushness of Costa Ballena’s natural rainforest sits a number of individual villas, high on a hill. You’ll find this piece of God’s country in the tiny town of Tres Rios, an area South of Ojochal (another small town known as the the culinary capital of Costa Rica). Here in Tres Rios, residents and guests enjoy an away-from-it-all living experience, as you’re ten minutes to the main highway, and 30 minutes to Uvita, the area’s “downtown”. Here, you hear the birds singing non-stop, and the sound of a nearby river is your constant companion….can you hear it? Ahhh….
Retreat Center for Sale in South Pacific Costa Rica
The colonial style structures on this property were completed in 2007, are extremely well-constructed and in great condition. This retreat center encompasses five individual villas, three single guest/treatment rooms, seven baths and a two-bedroom caretaker’s house. At full capacity, this property sleeps 20. The beautiful accommodations are wonderfully suited for retreats, but this property could also function very well as a small boutique hotel, spa, vacation rental space or a mix of all of the above.
What else does this stunning setting include? A spacious pool deck featuring a large pool and jacuzzi sits elevated above the private villas. Its elevation offers visitors astounding views of the green hillsides and valleys below.
Since this property is located in a rustic Costa Rica town (which has no amenities), the facilities were built to offer the option of dining on the premises – often a preferred feature for vacationers in Costa Rica. A poolside kitchen is fully stocked with a dishwasher, stove/oven, fridge and double-sink and makes a great space for mixing smoothies or cocktails and serving light fare. Otherwise, visitors have the option to prepare their own meals in their private villas.
Property Features worth mentioning:
- Relax and fall asleep to the sound of the river which runs below this amazing property
- Parking lot holds up to 10 cars
- Satellite TV available
- Existing Wi-Fi internet connection in the villas
- Secure entry gate (remote controlled)
- Two water tanks onsite
- Four Septic tanks on site
- 4×4 required to access the center (though it’s on the easier side than most!)
Looking for the Perfect Oasis for Relaxation & Retreat?
Multiple lookouts at this Costa Rica retreat center serve as excellent vantage points from which to breathe in the incredible mountain and valley views. We can’t speak highly enough of the way the cultivated landscaping has been cared for, with an abundance of sweet smelling flowers, fruit trees, and exotic plants.
Did we say fruit trees? Yes, we did! The land which the retreat center sits on is indeed fruitful and produces papaya, banana, coconut, mango, lime, orange and guanabana (soursop) fruits…to name a few. Owners can delight their guests with fresh drinks, smoothies and fruit trays naturally grown on the property. Major WOW factor!
And then, there’s the Private Villas….here’s what they include:
- Expansive high ceilings of locally-sourced wood
- Arched windows and doors
- Plentiful natural light
- Solid concrete construction
- Each villa measures 850 square feet
- Every patio features breathtaking views of the rainforest
- Two of the five villas have air conditioning; the other three are wired for it to be added. (Most of the time, you’ll find you don’t need it anyway!)
- Walk-in closets (a highly uncommon feature here in Costa Rica!)
- Ceiling fans for comfort
- Wiring in every single villa for an individual phone line
- All furniture in each villa is included
- Each also includes a mid-size fridge, oven/stove, cabinets and kitchen ware
A dream come true…at less than appraised value!
This property was recently appraised for $1.3 Million USD. However, the owner is motivated and is offering it a very low price of $595,000. We couldn’t believe this property is available at that low of a price. So, if owning your own Costa Rica hotel or boutique hotel or wellness center is your dream, this could be your perfect opportunity!
New owners could also expand this retreat or boutique hotel into a much larger business as there is an adjacent property for sale for $28,500, which is almost the same size as this one. The adjacent property features stunning mountain views and depending on what will be built there may also feature a view of the ocean. Can you imagine it? More villas? A more centralized structure? What can you envision?
