On this property, you can live in a home with a wide valley view in Costa Rica, eat the fruit from your own trees, and enjoy the income from a business that won’t run you ragged. From this property you will have views of Mt. Chirripo, Costa Rica’s highest peak, and the night lights of the city.
Importantly, access is easy on a paved road. By car or public bus you can go to stores, events, celebrations and offices in one of Costa Rica’s three largest cities, San Isidro de General, in just a few minutes.
After a slowdown due to the economic downturn of several years ago, the area is once more attracting outside interest and development. Foreigners are drawn to the higher altitude’s fresher air where you won’t need A/C, the proximity to a city with all the resources and services you’d need, and access to southern Costa Rica’s beautiful uncrowded beaches within an hour’s drive.
The home is a 2 bedroom, 2 bath with a large open living area that includes fully furnished kitchen, dining and living areas. In front is a double carport, and the front windows look out onto the mountains and lights. Included with the house are 3 new water heaters, a new water pump, new stainless steel appliances, and an assortment of power tools and hand tools to maintain the grounds and buildings.
The self-storage business is one of a kind in the area. It has 9- 10’ X 20’ units and 12 -10’ X 10’ units. In addition there is covered parking for vehicles and boats. A facility like this would not be feasible down by the coast where humidity, heat and salt air would wreak havoc with things stored in it. This location, at this altitude, allow for better natural climate control and protection for your customer’s belongings.
Your target market would be mostly expats from all around the area who are building and need a place to store things until they can move into their own homes, plus expats who are only in the country part time and need a place for their personal items while they are gone. Additionally, those who don’t want to leave vehicles or boats down by the coast while they are gone will find fully fenced security here. A number of clients are from the coastal areas and understand the advantages very well.
Many people who are exploring possibilities in Costa Rica would like some kind of business here but don’t want to get sucked back into the rat race they are trying to escape. A self storage business is far less intrusive on your lifestyle than, say, a hotel or restaurant.
