One Of A Kind Resort Parcel With Whitewater Ocean Views And Rivers Above The Beaches Of Dominical
There is nothing else like Reserva Santa Fe, a unique 60 acre offering in the entire Southern Zone of Costa Rica. If you are looking to establish a world class eco-resort, this property is at the top of our list as it checks off everything that people from all over the world travel to Costa Rica for. The varied terrain includes multiple ocean view building sites, 2 year round flowing rivers, 1 seasonal creek, multiple waterfalls and over 12 acres of ancient “primary rainforest” teeming with Costa Rican wildlife of all shapes and sizes. We envision an exclusive eco-resort built onto the 12 available building pads found on the property. The building sites are private and connected via walking trails and a tree lined internal road infrastructure that is ideal for horseback riding.
Most properties featuring primary rainforest are very remote and inaccessible, yet this location is situated only minutes from the main coastal highway in a very exclusive neighborhood called the Escaleras. If you are looking to establish a world class hospitality business, your guests will appreciate being surrounded by a pristine rainforest environment while having the convenience of getting to the beach, taking adventure tours, or enjoying local shopping and dining in a matter of minutes. They will not be held captive hours away from civilization yet they will truly get a taste of what living in the rainforest is all about. The abundant array of animals living here can only be found in this primary rainforest environment and there really is nothing in the area that has this much wilderness so close to the beach.
A tour of the property will take you to elevated building sites featuring stunning views of waves rolling into Playa Hermosa, the “3 Sisters” Islands, Cano Island, the Osa Peninsula and the world famous “Whale’s Tail” at Marino Ballena National Park. Walking paths wind through towering trees overhead and lead to natural fresh water streams, gentle waterfalls and an incredible rectangular swimming hole that is deep and refreshingly cool. Along the way, you will see mountains covered with dense jungle and witness an amazing array of Costa Rican flora and fauna.
Overabundant Potable Water Supply And Solid Infrastructure In Place For Responsible Construction
The existing infrastructure includes a private charcoal filtered water system, and even though you will never need it, it has the capacity to provide clean potable water for hundreds of homes! Electricity is on site and runs to the primary building areas. For those looking for self sustainable living, the land includes tropical fruit trees, a Tilapia pond plus a chicken coop for poultry and fresh eggs. Tons of bamboo have been planted along the main roads that can be kept in place for shade or utilized for building purposes.
Although the land is mostly undeveloped, a rustic 1 bed / 1 bath ocean view studio was constructed for use as a private getaway for the current owners and a quaint 3 bedroom home with landscaped gardens was built for the caretaker and his family. They have intimate knowledge of the property and the land has been very well cared for over the years. This special place is inappropriate for a high density condo project or anything resembling a McDonalds. It is a unique situation only available for a unique buyer who has the means to develop a project in an intelligent and responsible manner.
On the existing building sites, a series of upscale guest bungalows could be developed with a common pool / restaurant area, a few luxury homes could be built, or perhaps an ocean view mansion with stables could be constructed. Whatever the choice may be, you simply could not ask for a better location with this combination of privacy, nature and convenience. This is the last large property of it’s kind in the area. It is also one of the closest properties on the Escalares Road to the Costanera Highway. You can literally walk to a beach in 15 minutes and it is only a 10 minute drive up the mountain. This is a massive benefit for any developer looking to build a project catering to tourists. This is one of the finest real estate assets in an area that is witnessing tremendous growth.
