Self Sustainable Eco/Yoga Retreat nestled in the mountains above the rugged Pacific coastline of Uvita, Costa Rica. This could very well be the perfect location with the perfect opportunity… and it is now available!
Costa Rica is arguably one of Central America’s most iconic destinations. From ancient cultural heritage, towering mountains, pristine stretches of coastline, and untamed jungles, it’s a varied destination that has captivated travelers for centuries.
The awesomeness of having nature right outside your door will leave you speechless. With trails, waterfalls, swimming holes and a river to explore, you can’t help but become connected to your surroundings and let’s not forget the wildlife that are native to Costa Rica!
You will feel worlds away on this 50+ acre self-sustainable property. The lush, tropical, nature-filled and off-grid retreat is just minutes from the paved road and conveniently located just a short drive from the thriving town of Uvita with many of the amenities that you enjoy.
The three well-built buildings have over 9000 sf under roof and currently sleeps 40. A spacious common area for dining, conferences, yoga or just lounging flanks the amazing, fully equipped commercial kitchen.
Enjoy cooler temperatures and ocean breezes while lounging on the deck overlooking the Pacific Ocean! Create your own private sanctuary, a place to enjoy yoga retreats or build out your own eco community with people who want to live a sustainable lifestyle also!
The main building is thoughtfully designed and has a great floor plan! Built of solid concrete and steel structure, the floors are designed to host groups while providing private space to relax. The arrangement of buildings was created to serve a variety of purposes. The parking level of the main building features offices, storage rooms, laundry facility, bathrooms and a fully equipped commercial kitchen that is a chef’s dream! The open-air common area serves as a dining area, classroom or conference area complete with banquet style custom tables and chairs. This large area can also serve as a yoga or fitness platform.
The lower level of the main building features additional storage space and flexible dormitory style lodging complete with private bathrooms. Just off the trails there are two additional cabins boasting 4 private rooms each with their own bathroom. These cabins currently host amenities for 8 guests each. The larger cabin has a 2-bedroom efficiency apartment below with walk out access which could be rented separately or could serve as living quarters for an owner or caretaker.
This property is being sold completely furnished. Each room is furnished with linens and towels and the kitchen is fully equipped with Cookware, dinnerware, and utensils. Propane on-demand hot water are featured in all guestroom bathrooms.
The total under-roof square footage of the entire property is just over 9,000, with about 6,000 sq. ft. currently being used as living space. The maximum capacity for the property to sleep is 40 but this can easily be increased by changing the configuration of the rooms and adding more beds.
The Land Use
Only a portion of this expansive property has been developed in order to preserve the pristine natural jungle and all of the wildlife and vegetation that it hosts. There are additional plantels that are already cleared, flattened, and ready for expansion if needed.
The breeze from the West is refreshing and makes the warm months in Uvita a little more bearable! The bordering river provides clean, fresh potable water for the property for drinking water, garden irrigation, and hydro electricity. This year-round river also features a tranquil large waterfall and several smaller falls to enjoy.
The park-like area in the center of this large acreage is beautifully landscaped, with plenty of space to host events or group activities. The mature landscaping features a variety of fruit trees, native flora and a tilapia pond. With plenty of room to add a salt water swimming pool, or additional buildings this properties options are endless!
The open area boasts solar panels for electricity to the entire property. The road and driveway leading to the property are well maintained and roadside water management is in place to allow year-round accessibility with 4-wheel drive.
With the exception of the house at the bottom of the road, there are no other developed properties on this road or beyond this property. The adjacent property is a protected reserve owned by one of the universities, guaranteeing your privacy and protection for the wildlife that calls Costa Rica home.
Off-Grid with Options
This property is self-sustainable using only natural water and energy sources. Hydro and solar are the two sources of electricity, to maximize power collection depending on the season. The systems are well-maintained and have proven sufficient to provide the necessary power to keep the property functional as it is. There is also a new high-capacity gas generator that serves as a backup. If desired, grid power could be brought to the property for an additional expense.
This property is ready for you to make it Uvita's Premier Destination!
