Description

Seldom does a property have this many stunning features. Starting with the location, this is the most desirable eco-community (Guapil Tropical Estates) in the Southern Zone. The planned development boasts large, estate-sized lots (this one is 23 acres). Only 17 owners (20 total lots) enjoy the gated community with carefully thought, ecological easements to ensure wildlife abundance, environmental integrity and long term tranquility of ownership. The project is very well managed, with great owner participation, a really good community vibe and enjoys the best road system in the area. This development was the first of its kind in the mid 1990's, and remains unmatched in its desirability more than twenty five years later. Apart from having its own 100 acre, shared reserve at the high point of the property (which also protects the community's water supply), the community is adjacent to the 800 acre Baru Wildlife Refuge which extends all the way down to the Baru River and Playa Guapil.

This particular property is adjacent to the 800 acre neighboring reserve, sits at roughly 750 feet above sea level, and enjoys more wildlife than most of the country's national parks. The forest is nothing short of magical. Old growth trees provide shade, biodiversity, depth and character to the site. Even with the forest cover, there are still nice open areas and stunning views in all westerly directions: Caño Island, year round sunsets and the enchanting Manuel Antonio National Park headlands.

There is a simple but sturdy, two level, one bedroom home with great views and desirable position on the property. The entire lower level is currently being used for climate controlled storage and could easily be converted into more living space. A free form, infinity pool with brick decking and an adjacent rancho with shade, seating, a rotisserie oven, a full bathroom, a wet bar and bbq area looks over the edge of the rain forest and toward the endless Pacific horizon.

There is ample room on the property to construct a larger, main home which would render the current residence as a nice guest house. The property has access to the community water but also enjoys a formal right (concession) from a nearby creek. One of the best features of the property is the serenity and view integrity. Not a house can be seen from the main prominent ridge, and hardly a manmade light is visible on the night horizon. It's truly enveloped in nature.

This is not the property for someone seeking to pursue a short term rental program, but the community's ecological easements to do allow for rentals of one month or more.

Ultimate privacy, end of the road location, rainforest magic, abundant wildlife, stunning coastal and sunset views, a turnkey residence with pool and space to build your dream home. All of this located just 10 minutes from Dominical Centro and 20 minutes from the Quepos airport along a well paved, coastal highway. These things collectively are hard to find and rarely obtained. Please inquire for more information and private viewings.
