Costa Rica Beauty


We are reluctantly selling this special property to be near our children and grandchildren in Asheville, NC. The Costa Rica property is about 5.5 acres which we have and still organically farm. If you are wanting a sustainable relocation in the perfect year round climate, with rich volcanic soil and lovely temperatures, then this is for you! I am a retired builder and have upgraded and maintained every detail on this property.

It has been so maintained in order to be an immaculate vacation rental for the last 12 years, but time has come to pass it on to the right lucky persons.Lots of fruit trees, flowers, birds and wildlife. It could be divided,but we think it is too special to do this.The location is central to beaches but the climate is cool and lush. There are several building sites with lots of road frontage. Both homes are fully furnished.


The first home is 1300sq ft. with 200sq ft. covered porch, and pool. Second home of 1200sp. ft. with a garage and room above. There is a large barn for garden tool storage, with mowers, and building/maintenance tools.The property is located about 20 miles from Tabacon Springs, The Hanging Bridges, The Canopy Tram, and of course the ever active Arenal Volcano.


Also, the Pacific beaches are about2 hours away, and the Liberia airport is less than that. Lots of "Gringos" are here which makes a wonderful community, and Ticos are some of the friendliest people you will meet. Asking $439,000 for all.This ad is before a real estate listing as we prefer to sell it ourselves.Please feel free to ask any other questions you may have. We can be reached by email or the following number will reach us while we are in Costa Rica: Britt or Gloria Kelley
