Located in the tourist hot-spot area surrounding the Arenal Volcano and set at a height of 1200 feet, this luxurious cabin retreat enjoys a temperate year-round climate (cooler than the coast). Only 3 hours from both San Jose and Liberia international airports (with direct flights to many US States and European capitals).
Costa Rica tourism cruised past another milestone in 2015, attracting a record-breaking 2.66 million tourists from around the world. The Arenal/La Fortuna region is the most visited. Continued growth from the U.S., Costa Rica’s most important tourism market, and the expansion of new airlines (with new direct flights from London, Paris, Zurich, New York among others) were among the top reasons for the continued growth. The increasing number of tourists also helped the tourism sector swell by 9 percent in 2015, outpacing the national GDP of 2.8 percent by threefold. Tourism Minister called the tourism sector a “motor for development” in Costa Rica, providing jobs and growing the country’s international brand.
The retreat attracts a niche market of upper middle to high income individuals and families looking for a vacation that offers experiences, high quality accommodation and food, and personalized services in an intimate, secluded setting surrounded by nature and stunning views of the Arenal Volcano.
Excellent, personalized guest services and experiences are organized through the retreat, including private professional guide services and transportation.
The property, once a dairy farm, has been mostly reforested and has areas of pasture to keep a cow and some horses. Dairy, chicken, some pork and eggs are produced on site. Guests enjoy helping with farm chores and can learn about food production (there are numerous opportunities to develop this aspect of the business further if desired).
Owners are ready to retire, but can help new owners with the transition. The business is fully operational, with devoted staff in place (including bi-lingual manager, yoga instructor and receptionist).
Buildings are well maintained, unique and outfitted with quality furnishings. Sale includes all furnishings and equipment needed take over the business (the horses and tack are not included).
This is a unique opportunity for an individual, corporation or group of investors. It would also be an ideal setting as a family or corporate retreat center.
Owner is willing to consider partial financing.
