Zoned Low Density Hotel, this beach front concessioned property is located in the tranquil pueblo of Manzanillo de Ario, 14 Kilometers from Cobano or 8 Kilometers north of Santa Teresa and Mal Pais on the south-west side of the Nicoya Peninsula in Costa Rica.
Concession permits have been approved and registered and development grants have been approved by ICT and the local Municipality in Cobano.
The property is approximately 4393.65 m2 and ‘L’ –shaped with 30.65 meters of road frontage. 2593.65 m2 has two building sites, one at beach level and one up higher with a spectacular tree top and ocean view.
1800 m2 is partially forested with plans to plant exotic trees and tropical plants.
Zoning allows for any commercial enterprise on a small scale, with buildings not more than two stories high.
A 22000 Liter tank for water storage has been buried into the earth on the upper building site and a well, located in the partially forested area keeps the water reservoir topped up.
The lower building site has a permitted 12’ x 20’ cement building which acts as a bodega (safe storage locker), but has been creatively finished inside with ceramic tiles, glass blocks and wood accents. It presently has a kitchen, bathroom with hot shower and a living area with a large deck in front. Future plans are for two bedrooms and a deck on the second floor. The windows close up securely with metal shutters and lock inside at three points. The door is also metal and has two secure dead-bolt locks which require the keys to unlock the door from the inside. The solid cement construction, including a poured 6” concrete roof make the building and all belongings inside as safe as a vault.
The beach level area has been planted with two varieties of prolifically producing coconut palms, a guava tree, and cashew nut tree. The canopy of a huge cenicero and ceiba and almond trees keep the afternoon sun filtered and a variety of odd, decorative palms, hosting orchid cactus add intrigue to the lands
