Island for Sale in Costa Rica

Ocean Property for Sale Costa Rica

More about this property

13 hectares of island property, located in the Golfo Dulce of Costa Rica’s southern Pacific region. Totally self-sufficient and off-the-grid, water is provided by its own well. All electricity is provided by solar. Lots of beach, complete with palm & almendra trees (food of the scarlet macaws). Monkeys, and other jungle wildlife, along with a myriad of bird species (including the scarlet macaw) frequent the area.

There are 2, 1 bedroom homes on the property, along with a caretaker’s house. There is a wood-fired pizza oven and two platforms for enjoying the waves, pizza, and just being there. For those looking for a reprieve from the world's frantic pace, you will want to consider owning this property. Costa Rica is arguably viewed as an antidote to what ails this world, At The Island there is a pervasive magic sense that you have found something truly remarkable. There are no sounds of civilization. This is certainly not to say that it is quiet here. There is the sound of the waves, birds, breeze and jungle-rustle. I suppose this would be what we call the sounds of silence. It is pure therapy in its effect.

To state the obvious, the island is boat access only. We launch in Golfito and take a 15 - 20 minute boat ride out to the property - or what the heck - take an hour (or more) and marvel at where you are, and/or do some fishing along the way. When you arrive, and disembark to the beach, you are facing the ocean with the mass of the island behind you. The property is shaped like a large bowl that's been cut in half. The beach is in a cove-like setting with a jutting point on its northern point, then a crescent shaped beach and an outcropping on the southern end.

Moving inland from the water, the property does a rigorous rise up to a height that is shrouded in some rare original growth jungle. Once there, the overhead canopy causes a shaded, park-like effect below where one can walk about and explore. Access to the upper parts is steep.The beach and its immediate vicinity are rolling and usable for the structures that are there, with room for more.

One of the built areas has a real wood-fired Italian oven which can be used to make pizza. This oven was made by an Italian artisan. This is in the barbecue and picnic area with a deck that is seen in the pictures.

Possible Uses of the Property:

The current owner will occasionally rent out the property. There is room for adding more structures, or the property can simply continue on as it is. Various rental villas would certainly enjoy robust occupancy for a more active rental application.

The seller has enjoyed her personal use of the property and mostly just having it available for when she and family & friends want to spend time there. Life moving on (read: declining health) is the reason she is selling. Her tradition of use can obviously be continued by a family or group that want the quintessential get-away from civilization.

Sport fishing is big in the area, so a successful tour business can be run from the island. A dock can be constructed to simplify access, and the villas used to house the fishing populace that are drawn to the abundant varieties found in the Golfo Dulce.

In summary, you’ve found what has to be one of the unique property offerings on planet earth. The optimum time to view The Island is during Costa Rica's dry season. However, we will do our best to accommodate your schedule. We ask that inquiries allow time for arranging the visit to the island and also that they be genuine interest only.
