Fully Operational Income Property in Uvita
As you enter the electric bamboo gate to the property, beyond the parking area there are 3 colorful rental units in a line to the left of the outdoor kitchen/rancho area and inviting pool. Each room is air conditioned with their own on suite full bathroom and mini coffee bar kitchenette. The rooms are stylishly decorated with bright artwork and comfortable beds and linens. The vibrant bathrooms have really cool tiles and showers. Each unit has its own private porch with a couple chairs and ceiling fan. The pool is perfect for guests to cool off after a day at the beach or out on adventure tours. There is a covered rancho next to the pool with an outdoor kitchen and BBQ area for guests to enjoy. You could also turn this into the dining pavilion if you decided to offer breakfast as a BnB.
Mature lipstick palms and lush flowering landscaping create a private setting yet being close to everything. The owners home is In the rear of the property, which is split into two sides and connected by a breezeway. The house is equipped with a full kitchen and 2 bedrooms (1 being used as an office with A/C) and 1 full bathroom on one side of the home. The other side consists of an air conditioned living room and master bedroom with a bathroom. One side of the home could be converted into a 5th rental unit if you would like to increase income generating potential. You could also rent the entire home on Airbnb if you lived off site or do not plan on moving here full time. It is also possible to rent the entire property to yoga retreats or other tourism groups looking for plenty of space.
Solar Panels to Help Lower Your Carbon Footprint
Behind the owner’s home is the 4th cabina which is a studio bedroom with A/C and its own en suite bathroom. This is a handicap accessible unit which is required by Costa Rica law for an operational hotel business. The current owners rent this room occasionally and primarily have used it as a private guest room when friends visit. Solar panels are on the main 3 cabinas structure by the pool, and two solar hot water heaters help lower the monthly cost of electricity considerably, thus increasing profits.
This property is a great fit for an investor looking to capitalize on a very in demand vacation rental market, with the ability to live on site as needed. The business is fully operational and producing income with customers from Expedia, Booking.com, Hotels.com, Airbnb, and more.
