A very experienced developer is about to start on his project to reinvent the town of Golfito. His development will eventually include a resort hotel, shops, residences and a state of the art marina that will service yachts of all sizes. The project will also include the improvement of the main road and widening of the airstrip. Construction is scheduled to start in July and eventually hundreds of jobs will be created in the construction, service, and hospitality industries.
The end result will be a town that will now offer tourists good dining, entertainment and many different activities. Besides those working in the service and hospitality industry that will need housing, adequate shopping, entertaining and dining options, it is anticipated that Golfito will become a desirable destination for vacation homes and retirement. Those anticipating these needs and desires will be on the lookout for prime properties that will appreciate in value as the project develops.
Ackerman International Realty believes that a parcel of land they have listed for $1.25 million is ripe for the taking. This piece of paradise has a panoramic view of the Golfito Bay and its 50-acres are strategically zoned for both commercial and residential purposes, making it highly desirable as a housing development including a boutique hotel, residences, shopping and entertainment. It would also serve the community well as a boutique hotel or eco-lodge.
Not only will Golfito real estate be affected, but also it is expected that real estate demand will overflow onto the Osa Peninsula. Puerto Jimenez and Golfito are closely united by a ferry that runs twice daily. Puerto Jimenez already has entertaining and dining options, plus it has amenities and conveniences developed for the tourists that visit the nearby Corcovado National Park.
Six miles outside of Puerto Jimenez is a boutique development with a number of lots for sale, ranging from $85,000 to $175,000. There is also a fully constructed house available for $315,000. The owner is willing to sell the whole project to someone wanting to create his or her own development. With the amenities of civilization and the convenience of a caretaker, Ackerman Realty expects this property will be sold to someone looking to take advantage of the relaxed lifestyle while being near the new development.
The final property that is likely to be positively influenced by Golfito’s expected economic boom is a parcel of land containing 17.5 acres of primary forest for $125,000. The beach of Carate is only minutes away from the property and the Corcovado National Park is just down the road. This property is a great choice for those wanting to live the eco lifestyle but still have access to other activities.
Golfito is a small port town located on the southern Pacific Coast of Costa Rica and offers easy access to world-class fishing, national parks, duty-free shopping, and more. Call Margo Ackerman 678-799-9209 for more information and a private tour.
