Perfect for young & old; newcomers & old-timers; surfers to beachcombers; singles to families with young kids; all to enjoy the relaxed lifestyle here, only 8 minutes to the entrance of Jaco Beach, Garabito, Puntarenas, Central Pacific, Costa Rica , but amazingly it feels worlds' apart!
This recently painted, FULLY FURNISHED 2 bdrm (OR currently 1 bdrm-1 nice office) 2 bath chalet boasts a southern sunrise and an ocean view of the glorious Pacific; and with our huge front and rear decks, you'll see incredible natural tropical vegetation, many species of birds including hummingbirds, macaws and parrots; iguanas you can give a name to, as well
as the friendly geckos, plus other tropical delights like a praying mantis i took pix of last month.
Amenities and Special Upgrades:
Only the back row units have a nice expansive rear deck about 27 feet long and 6.5 ft wide (recently refinished), and this one is special with the 13 year growth of 5 giant palms,
giving more privacy to the front yard, and yet, there is an ocean view! Branches are cut every 3 months to ensure one can see the water, and the big sky over it.
This home comes fully furnished with beautiful wood floors; gorgeous granite countertops; modern appliances; with excellent hd cable t.v. and high speed internet (100mbps, but 200 is also available, with fiber optic coming soon!).
Most of the furniture is included, as the Buyer/buyers will have some options regarding what pieces are perfect for them (example: wine refri-giant office desk/table-large solid wood custom made shelving; 2 smaller shelves; very expensive tropical hardwood chairs with cushions; and so much more.
There is the 2 year old sofa that's so comfy, no one would even know its a "sleeper" too! Living room also has a 2 person leather sofa, marble coffee table, more custom shelving,
an entertainment center featuring surround sound system to enhance your 43" Samsung tv viewing pleasure.
All the bedrooms and the living room have ceiling fans, but most importantly all have been recently replaced, or serviced, and the living room 18000 BTU Panasonic INVERTER AC was purchased July of 2019. monthly bills average only $90 now.
This is another advantage of living here as well, low costs to remodel or even add a third floor 360 degree ocean view deck!
Remember that only the back row of the Bungalows offer a very special treat to birdwatchers and nature lovers, huge balconies which will offer you dusk and dawn bird songs, as well as providing extra living space and privacy with the large sliding glass doors .
To me, an impressive thing about this bungalow is the Sellers' pride and joy with all of the wall art and objects that remind you, Hey, You are in Costa Rica!!! Pura Vida!
For the incredible HOA monthly fee of $300 (just raised March 1st, 2020) you'll see 3 daily maintenance workers keeping all the common areas beautiful and the swimming pool spotless, and night time security guard; even your water bill is included in the HOA payment.
For those that want to participate in our excellent rental income program (lots of repeat business) Brian is our super friendly onsite rental manager (as well as being a bungalow owner for the past 16 years. )
With the beautiful Pacific Ocean and protected Turtle reserve to your west, and to the east you're surrounded by luscious green mountains, this is truly a one of a kind home to live in Costa Rica. Keep in mind that 94% of Costa Rica's beachfront is in the concession zone/zona maritima, but these bungalows are on 100% titled land, in a regulated condominium regime with one HOA rule: the Golden Rule! And the Muni-property taxes are an incredible deal, too cheap to mention here!
Hermosa Beach also offers the convenience of 2 mini markets, 4 beachfront bar restaurants only two minutes away, and it's even possible to get deliveries from 3 nearby pizza places and one of the 2 mini-markets. Pre-Covid-19 days, the Backyard Bar offers Saturday surf contests (world famous waves) with live music and holidays are celebrated there also.
The bustling tourist town of Jaco beach is only 9 minutes to the north, offering everything you need from government services to air conditioned movie theatres to a Central Park that often offer weekend family events. Of course, to greatly enhance your tropical paradise lifestyle, this part of the Central Pacific, in the canton of Garabito, province of Puntarenas,
offers tons of tourist eco activities, shops, stores, 100 restaurants offering from super cheap delicious "typico" to incredible world famous "gourmet" (to satisfy any "foodie" ) all within a beachfront zone with only one traffic signal! There are international bilingual schools with U.S. accreditation, multi-denominational English speaking churches and lots of opportunities to participate in volunteer efforts to improve the local communities thanks to the Garabito Rotary Club.
As an investment, we feel this is one of the area's best, since nearby homes are selling for as much as $2.7 million in the Hermosa Palms beach front community. Hermosa Beach will continue to appreciate in value as Jaco gets more crowded and residents seeking a quieter lifestyle choose a titled beachfront community. Very few options exist in Costa Rica, possibly the world, offering so much for such a small negotiable price!
We invite you to discover why after people have stayed two or three times, they purchase on their next trip.
Take advantage that right now, we only have three bungalows for sale, one for $310k front row, another last row one with back porch, ocean view, and more corner privacy, only $235k
and this one, for only $215,000
YES, with 50% down, Financing is possible! (BTW-did I mention, shhhhh, that property taxes are super low!)
Now is the time, and this is the place!
