Beautiful Beachfront Bungalow $195,000 ***SOLD***

For Sale

This gleaming tropical home is situated on an 878 square meter lot directly on Playa Pochote, which is a small rural beach town about 8 minutes from Tambor. It’s a quiet and very friendly community consisting primarily of locals. Imagine purchasing fresh yellowfin tuna from one neighbor and homemade cold-pressed coconut oil from the other. Residents and visitors of Playa Pochote are fortunate enough to be able to enjoy the rising sun over Tambor Bay and the setting sun behind the jungle hills.

The Pochote Tree which Playa Pochote is named after is a local hardwood tree that grows big and strong with large thorny spikes covering its’ trunk. It’s considered a sacred tree holding immense power both medicinally and spiritually. The land surrounding this area is full of these beautiful giant pochotes.

It is only natural that this adorable two-story beach bungalow has been constructed entirely of hardwoods. The bottom story has an open floor plan with a queen bed, bathroom and dining area that leads directly onto the patio and pristine beach. The loft upstairs has two queen beds and a bath.  The home also has good internet and air conditioning.  There are small convenience stores and restaurants nearby. Also nearby is the Curu Wildlife Refuge.

Because this property is located in the Maritime Zone, meaning 150 meters of this property are directly on the beach, it can only be purchased through concession. With a concession you do not get a deed to the property, but instead are approved for a 20 year lease, which must then be approved for renewal by the Costa Rican government when the lease expires. This is to ensure that Costa Rican beaches always remain pristine. Concession property is the most valuable in Costa Rica and along with that comes a bit of red tape every 20 years.  95% percent of beachfront property in Costa Rica is owned through concession.

This home currently rents by the day as a vacation rental with the out-of-country owners visting occasionally. It completely books up during high-season and makes an excellent investment.  There’s a property manager already in place that does a fantastic job. Whether for investment or personal enjoyment, this beachfront bungalow is the perfect choice to satisfy your tropical craving. Come take a look!

Pura Vida!
