New Riverfront Home & 3 Vacation/Guest "Jungalows"

This magical RIVERFRONT 2 acre property includes a 2,000 sq ft MAIN HOME and 3 individual GUEST"JUNGALOWS"/CASITAS for vacation rental income or personal friends and family use.
The houses are nestled among native jungle trees with lush tropical landscaping on a private hidden cove along the Morete River. The Morete has been designated as one of the cleanest rivers in Costa River. Freshwater shrimp, an endangered species of river otter, as well as fish and numerous water birds co-existed in this pristine river setting. Primary rainforest is the view across the river, and cannot ever be developed due to it's designation as a private "reserve".
Conveniently located only 1 kilometer off the Costanera highway, there is quick and easy access to beaches, grocery stores, restaurants, banks, and adventure tours. It is only a 5 minute drive to the small town of Uvita and the lovely beaches of Playa Ballena, Playa Colonia, and Playa Hermosa. Dominical, the popular surf town with its funky bohemian beach bar vibe, is only a 15 minute drive north.
The MAIN HOUSE has 2 large bedrooms and bathrooms, and an open and expansive living/dining/kitchen area. The uncluttered and minimalistic design of the home, with 20 ft high ceilings, few interior walls, and huge windows, conveys an open-air feeling, seamlessly blending outside views and gardens with interior comfort and shelter. Polished concrete floors and countertops, a huge kitchen island, and contemporary furniture add a modern flair.
Each GUEST JUNGALOW/CASITA perfectly accommodates 2 people, and is furnished with a queen bed, dining table for 2, bathroom, and a small kitchenette complete with dishes and utensils, a 2 burner stove-top, mini-fridge, microwave oven, toaster, coffeemaker and sink. After stocking up on a few groceries in nearby Uvita, guests will have everything they need to prepare simple meals. The cottages are perfect for a private family or friends gathering, or even an intimate wedding ceremony on the river.
Outside, both the main house and the cottages are surrounded by colorful tropical gardens. Covered porches offer a close up view of the river and protected forest preserve beyond. Hear the howler monkeys howl, watch the toucans fly from tree to tree, dip your toes in the cool clean river 30 yards away or hike up-river to discover the natural swimming holes and hidden waterfalls.
A 200 sq ft storage shed, 20 feet from the main house, includes a washer/dryer, and lots of storage for tools and landscaping supplies.
TURN KEY and ready to occupy. The purchase price includes ALL furniture, bedding, appliances and fixtures-(except for a few tools and personal items)
This itself is worth about $30k - if you had to buy new furniture, fixtures, decor and appliances.
The 3 jungalow - "CASITAS DEL RIO" are currently used as vacation rentals for tourists, visitors and friends and family. They could be easily be operated as a small hotel or B&B. Potential yearly rental income of $45-50k from the 3 cottages is possible, depending on your marketing plan and rental rates.

Description of our LOCATION in Costa Rica:
The southern Pacific zone, known as Costa Ballena (whale coast), has just recently been "discovered" and is now easily accessible by a newly paved road and highway from the capital city of San Jose. The Talamanca mountain range (highest in Central America), and (in the past) the terrible conditions of the un-paved roads, had prevented all but the most courageous travelers from enjoying the spectacular eye-candy scenery of our region. Our beaches and rain-forest covered mountains are still un-spoiled, however 2 years ago the main InterAmerican highway that runs all the way down Central America to Panama was paved. There are plans underway for a new international airport to be built in the near future, 25 miles south of our area, which would serve southern Costa Rica and northern Panama. We are now more easily accessible and are being promoted as the "last undiscovered and most bio-diverse area in Costa Rica".
