Location: Uvita, Costa Rica
The perfect secluded retreat center in Uvita, Costa Rica is finally available for you to own. Are you ready to make your dreams come true?
Maybe this is the time in your life to start creating your ideal family escape estate in a tropical, nature-filled destination, where you can all go to get away from it all.
This beautiful, 50+ acre, self-sustaining, off-grid property offers spectacular Pacific Ocean views from a higher elevation with cooler temperatures than you’d find at the coast. This immaculate, nature-blessed property is surrounded by undeveloped and protected land that has river access with spectacular waterfall views. All of this is just 10 minutes off the paved road into Uvita’s commercial center. This property is the perfect get-away that still allows easy access to everything you need.
In order to preserve the pristine natural jungle and all of the wildlife and vegetation that it hosts, only a portion of this expansive property has been developed. Still, there is plenty of room cleared and flattened, ready for expansion.
A beautiful, clean river provides fresh water for the property for drinking water, garden irrigation, and hydro electricity. The nourishing year-round river also features a large waterfall and several smaller falls to splash around and play in.
The cleared area in the center of this large acreage is enchantingly landscaped, with so much space to host joyous group activities. The developed part of the property has a variety of fruit trees as well as a tilapia pond. There is plenty of room to add a swimming pool, sporting arenas, or additional buildings.
The open and park-like setting is ideal for capturing the sunlight and providing solar electricity to the entire property. The road and driveway leading on site are well maintained and roadside water management is in place to allow year-round accessibility with 4-wheel drive.
There are no developed properties beyond this estate and there is currently only one other house at the start of the access road. The road to this land feels completely private and like you are entering another world. There is currently one walking trail down to the river but an expansive hiking trail network could easily be developed. The adjacent property is a protected reserve owned by one of the universities, guaranteeing your privacy and enjoyment of the nature for which Costa Rica is iconic.
The main building is an impressive 3+ story concrete and steel structure. The network of buildings was created to serve a variety of purposes. Currently, one level features offices, storage rooms, a fully-equipped commercial kitchen, and an open-air gathering and dining area that make this property perfectly set up for hosting group retreats. The common area can easily be used for yoga or other fitness activities, as well as for conferences.
Two banquet-length custom tables provide dining or workspace while enjoying views of the ocean and jungle. The lower level of the main building houses additional storage space and dormitory-style rooms.
Other sleeping and living accommodations are varied, offering flexibility for your needs. The main building currently houses 2 large dormitory-style rooms which can accommodate up to 6 people (more beds could be added), and each of the two includes a full bathroom.
Further down the trail, there are two stand-alone cabins. The smaller cabin (approx. 500 sq. ft.) has four double occupancy guest rooms, each with a full bath and an outdoor seating area. The other cabin (approx. 2,300 sq. ft.) also has four guest rooms (housing up to 8 people) but also includes a partially finished 2-bedroom efficiency apartment, which could be rented separately, or it can serve as the on-site living quarters for an owner or caretaker.
The property is being sold furnished, so ample bed linens and towels are included. All guest room bathrooms are equipped with on-demand hot water (propane).
The total under-roof square footage of the entire property is just over 9,000, with about 6,000 sq. ft. currently being used as living space. The maximum capacity for the property is currently 30 but this can easily be increased.
The property is currently self-sustaining using only natural water and energy sources. There are two sources of electricity — hydro and solar — to maximize power collection depending on the season. The systems are well-maintained and have proven sufficient to provide all of the power necessary to keep this property operational as it is. In addition, there is a new high-capacity gas generator that serves as a backup. If desired, grid power could be brought to the property for an additional expense
