12-Room Eco-Lodge On 15.5ACRES + Restaurant, Bar, Pool, Farm

Asking Price: $699,000 USD  (Negotiable)

PRICE REDUCED!!! This top ranked and incredibly beautiful eco-lodge with a 10-year proven track record is priced at close to $300,000 below current market value. Located in a UNESCO Island Biosphere Reserve and perched on the slopes of a dormant volcano cloud forest at 200meters elevation, the property features jaw-dropping views of an active volcano and Lake Nicaragua – the world’s 19th largest fresh water lake.

This turn-key sale includes over 1300m2 of construction including 12-guest rooms/cabins, a 24-seat restaurant, bar, reception, guest lounge, swimming pool, utilities buildings, organic farm, 4WD vehicle, maintenance buildings and all operating inventory including furniture and appliances.

The property is located on the edge of Balgue, a tourist hub on the magical island of Ometepe – one of Nicaragua’s national treasures and featuring two volcanoes joined by a sandy isthmus. From the air the island is shaped like a figure ‘8’. The island is famous for its peaceful idyllic lifestyle and is a natural wonderland offering visitors a plethora of adventure activities including volcano hiking, kayaking wetlands, visiting pristine waterfalls, swimming in refreshing crystalline volcanic springs offering medicinal value equal to that of thermal springs, horse riding along volcanic sand beaches or through the jungle where you can see howler monkeys. The island also has a rich cultural indigenous history and is home to thousands of pre-Columbian petroglyphs scattered across the island and bordering the property are shade-grown organic coffee plantations.

Operationally the businesses enjoys an internationally recognized brand, has excellent on-line presence and a comprehensive network of tour operator affiliations. Income has been affected since April 2018 but occupancy rates are now slowly returning to previous levels. This is an excellent opportunity for a new dedicated owners and involved owners to make this star shine.

    UTILITIES
    ENERGY:
    The entire property is off-grid and functions on solar and wind energy (mounted wind turbine). The system includes inverters, new deep cycle batteries & charge controllers. There is also a back-up generator to recharge batteries in case of extended overcast/wind-still periods.

    WATER:
    The property is connected to the local potable water system which includes a network of gravity fed tubing that distribute volcanic spring water from a central subterranean source high on Maderas Volcano. This means that ALL of the water you drink and bath in come directly from the volcano, a true luxury in today’s world. Once inside the property, the water is stored in one of two enormous ferro-cement water tanks. In the entire time the eco-lodge has operated it has never experienced water shortages in fact, the second water tank has not been needed but is on stand-by in case of expansion.

    BLACK WATER:
    The main lodge and swimming pool area have flush toilets that are connected to bio-digestors (considered to be one of the most ecological methods of processing black water). Furthermore the main lodge also includes a compost toilet and a men’s urinal.

    2 guest lodges are fitted with flush toilets connected to bio-digestors while the others have daily cleaned compost toilets. Contents of the compost toilets are deposited into a central composting area where they are processed and later become fertile soil used to nourish the gardens. (N.B. Changing bathrooms to include flush toilets is a relatively easy and inexpensive task in case you would prefer all cabins to have flush toilets.)

    ROAD:
    There is 500meters of private double-banded cement road leading from the entrance platform to the main lodge on the top platform which grants vehicle access to all areas of the property and allows for continued development.

    VEHICLE:
    Included in the sale is a 2004 Dihatsu Terrios 4WD.

    ISLA DE OMETEPE:
    Isla de Ometepe covers 276km2 and is home to more than 40,000 people. It has its own regional airport which is a 20minute flight from Managua International Airport. Flying in across the lake and in between two volcanoes is a truly memorable experience.

    There are also 2 functioning ports on the island which receive ferries and boats from the mainland daily (365days a year). The trip across the lake takes 75minutes each way and is a beautiful experience. Many of the ferries take vehicles. The cost of bringing a vehicle to the island is a little over US$15 each way making it the best way for visitors to see the island.

    The majority of the main roads on the island are paved and in surprisingly good condition.

    Despite being very low-key the island is well equipped with a hospital, banks, supermarket, police stations and numerous schools.

    There is a well developed network of foreigners on the island many of whom own businesses and farms. Apart from agriculture, tourism is the next largest sector on the island. There are over 157 tourism accommodation-based businesses as Ometepe is highly regarded as one of Nicaragua's 'must see' tourism gems.
