Income Potential

For the past several years the property has been enjoyed by family, friends and guests with vacation stays, events, cooking classes, and healing experiences.  Although the asking price excludes any associated business, the owners, entrepreneures and previous hotel owners, here in Costa Rica, are happy to share their expertise and details with their successes utilizing the property.

A vision that is 100% do-able is that of an intentional community for holding retreats, trainings and other group gatherings with the addition of eco-cabinas, or yurts to house and facilitate larger numbers. The property lends itself perfectly to this type of environmental development with a sensitivity to its imprint.  A self-sustaining aspect to such a development is the abundance of fruit trees, chickens, herbal gardens all that can be greatly expanded to include vegetable/medicinal perma-culture gardens.

This magical mountain estate awaits its new visionaries to take full advantage of what the property offers in terms of expansion.  It is also move-in ready as either a residence with vacation income of the guest house or utilizing the main house and guest house as an investment and income producing property.
