Set within the jungle of Parrita, just 25 minutes drive from Quepos central is a 20 plus hectare (49 acre) property encompassing rolling hills with ocean views and a gorgeous river that runs year round. The opportunity here is two-fold. There is an already existing, vacation rental business with room to expand by 200%. And there is the enormous acreage beyond where one can imagine creating; a multi-family compound and/or a sustainable community; a newly profitable regenerative farming venture; or realize a great idea for an eco-tour. Sixty plus acres, many of which offer soul reviving ocean and mountain views, is a wonderful canvas to realize your vision.
At the entrance, a gate welcomes the visitor to a beautifully groomed acre comprised of a vast impeccable lawn, well tended tropical gardens, 2 modern container “cabinas” facing the river and plenty of room for four more. A caretaker’s house is situated at the gate, as it should be for appropriate security. A short driveway leads you to the beautifully finished container cabins, each with a personal plunge pool and deck and the soothing sound of the river just steps away. The larger cabin has two bedrooms and single bathroom. The other cabin has one bedroom, one bathroom. Both are equipped with modern kitchens, wifi, and a small living area opening up to the deck and pool.
Beyond the open stretch of lawn, following the river, is another 2 cabin structure in the typical Costa Rican rustic style. The cabins are adjoining, with a porch surrounding all four sides of the building. One cabin has a single bedroom and bathroom, the other has 2 bedrooms and one bathroom. With its own separate driveway and gated entrance it could be perfect for long-term rentals providing steady income.
The river that runs through the property is a unique feature where guests can splash about, feel the rush of falling water, walk the banks for daily exercise in nature, or just sit and enjoy the dappled light, animals and birds that all come at some point to drink.
Cross the footbridge to the other side of the river and start the climb to the upper ridge of the property. This dirt road is itself like a land bridge bisecting the rolling hills that make up the more than 50 acres of untouched, fertile land. On either side the land slopes gently down then back up again and offers many different potential building sites. In the distance the mountains rise to create a beguiling, ever changing view. And once you are ¾ of the way up you can turn back to see the vast ocean in the distance. A view that only grows in its majesty the higher you climb.
There’s plenty of space for free-range animals, several homes, crops, and/or a nature-based attraction. The earth is fertile, very suitable for local produce and fruit trees. One could easily add a greenhouse to provide a simple solution for more tender produce such as lettuces and/or more exotic vegetables. The river is a constant source for irrigation; it is currently providing water to the vacation rental gardens.
Already established local attractions include a Tilapia Farm, ATV Tours, and a nearby waterfall. A local supermarket is no more than 15 minutes drive away. Parrita is a welcoming municipality without the same red tape one encounters in the more developed and municipally complicated Quepos. It is an ideal government body with which to work to realize your ideas for the property.
