For Sale By Owner – 2 Properties (Farm with house and Big Lot with Fully Furnished Home) – Osa Península – USD $375,000

For any questions you have about this property click here to contact the owner.

The property you are looking at is two properties, a truck and a LLC being sold as a package deal. Owner financing is available to qualified buyers. Located in the Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica, next to the most biodiverse place on the planet, Corcovado National Park.

The first property is a 50 acre organic off grid farm with a fully furnished rustic 832 square foot house constructed in 2015. The second is a few minutes walk away from the first and is a 7567 square foot lot with a fully furnished 1066 square foot main house, a 218 square foot cabina, and a 13,500 gallon in ground pool.

This is a perfect setup for someone looking to purchase a turnkey property with immediate income potential, as you can live in one and rent out the other. Accommodation is in high demand here, as many tourists come to visit Corcovado National Park. The entrance to the park is just steps away from the second property, and the trail borders the farm. This makes the farm a perfect location for someone interested in creating a boutique ecolodge or hosting farm tours. The second property would also be a great location for a restaurant, as currently there are only a couple of “sodas” in town(tiny “restaurants” with only a few seats) which serve a limited menu, usually some variation of rice and beans.

The property is hilly and the majority of it(around 44 acres) is primary rainforest. The rest(6 acres or so)was cleared in the past and now has a variety of fruit trees planted on it, with space for more.

The property came with a few mature fruit trees, and we have planted hundreds of different fruit trees since we purchased the property in 2014. Many of these trees are now producing. We use zero chemical fertilizers or pesticides, so everything is organic.

These are the current mature(producing) fruit trees: four cashew, five cacao(chocolate), many papaya, two coconut, three mango, numerous guavas and ice cream beans, one achiote(lipstick tree), one miracle fruit, several moringa, three rambutan, two soursop, two atemoya, several lemon, and one chili pepper tree.

Other trees that we planted in 2014, but have not produced yet: one fig, one almond, one finger(caviar) lime, two jaboticaba(should be ready anytime), five breadfruit(should also be ready anytime), many types of citrus, passionfruit, star fruit, many coconuts, green bamboo for building, many types of cacao, ice cream bean, cashew, avocado, morninga, and mango.

There are also many edible plants on the property. There are hundreds of mature banana plants(many different types), so there is a constant supply of bananas.

Other plants that are currently producing are: white pineapple(around 30 plants), many yucca/cassava/tapioca, tons of taro, pigeon peas, and many greens(katuk, bele, chaya, moringa, gotu kola, purslane, cranberry hibiscus). There is one vanilla plant that is old enough to produce, but we have not seen flowers yet.

Frequent animal visitors are: Squirrel Monkeys, Spider Monkeys, Howler Monkeys, Toucans, Scarlett Macaws, Coatis, Gray-Necked Wood Rails, Slaty-Tailed Trogons, Hummingbirds, Peccaries, Bats, Iguanas, a variety of various reptiles and amphibians and many species of birds too numerous to count. A park guide once found a tapir print on the property as well. We have been told they are attracted to the smell of bananas, and feel that if we didn’t have dogs we would likely have tapirs visit.

The properties are located in a small town of less than 400 people. The town is only eight miles away from the beach and a larger town(Puerto Jimenez) with all the amenities you could wish for.

We need at least a 15% downpayment but the other terms are negotiable. We feel 5% interest for a five year term would be fair with it going to 10% for a 10 year or longer term
