Welcome to Happier Garden of Eden! This spectacular ocean-view home is located in the prestigious Mar Vista development and encompasses expansive ocean views, privacy, and your own garden oasis.
When the front door opens, you will immediately be awed by some of the best views that Costa Rica has to offer. The oversized living area is open, bright, and flows seamlessly to the kitchen and outside area through large sliding doors, for true indoor/outdoor living at its best. The gourmet kitchen features stainless steel appliances, a high-end glass tile backsplash that reflects the light beautifully, a large island with breakfast bar, accent lighting, and built-in cabinets. The sliding glass doors open beautifully to the terrace, which features custom travertine tiles, hanging plants, sun shades, an outdoor shower, a stunning 60-foot multi-leveled pool, and jaw-dropping views of the gardens, Loros Island, and the Pacific Ocean. The sunsets from this home are magical!
This home has three bedrooms, each of which have unobstructed ocean views, are large enough to accommodate king-sized beds, and have their own en-suite baths. Each of the baths have custom glass tile with travertine trim throughout and floating cabinets with under mount lighting, creating a peaceful ambiance. The master bath features double showers, a Jacuzzi tub, and a flat screen TV to watch your favorite shows while soaking in the tub.
This home is built upon a large estate, so you don’t have to worry about privacy—no other houses can be seen from this home! Mature blooming orange and red Malinche trees surround the entire property. There is also a separate building pad that is currently being used a spectacular organic fruit farm, but which can also serve as a second building pad, complete with its own separate entrance if the new owner choses to build there to create a guest house for additional rooms and income potential. Currently, this garden contains many varieties of fruit trees, including pan fruit, jackfruit, lemon lime, mango, papaya, orange, yellow lemon, Bambini, avocado, tangerine, cuties, and guanabana. Do not be surprised to see monkeys, foxes, coatis, armadillos, and parrots on this property!
Other highlights of this home include a special Bionest septic that reuses 100% of the water for ornamental plants; the existence of fittings for an outdoor BBQ, sink, and outdoor kitchen on the first floor patio if the new owner desires to install one; a security system with outdoor cameras and motion sensors; and energy efficient solar panels that can be used to heat water for the home or pool.
GENERATE RENTAL INCOME IN DIFFERENT WAYS! This home has an established rental history and guests adore it! The new owner can rent the home in its entirety, or, due to the house’s smart design, live at the home in the custom, lock-off apartment while renting the main home! This is because the third bedroom is located on the second floor and can be connected to the house or, with a simple lock-off door, can be separated from the house and accessed via its own private entry. This third bedroom also has a full balcony and outdoor kitchen and grill area, making it ideal for owners to stay at the home and still rent out the main portion of the house.
This home is located in the Mar Vista development in Playa Flamingo. Mar Vista is a 5-minute drive to four incredible beaches, including Playa Flamingo, Playa Brasilito, Playa Conchal, and Playa Potrero. Mar Vista is also home to the amazing Gracia Restaurant, which offers exceptional dining, dramatic ocean views, sunsets, and a pool and bar for lounging and relaxing. Other amenities include a newly constructed gym, yoga palapa, hiking trails, and tennis courts. This community will certainly keep you active!
The La Paz Community School is adjacent to this development and many families are buying and building homes in this community as a result. The Costa Rica International Academy (“CRIA”), is another great private school option, and is located 10 minutes from the Mar Vista development.
From an investment perspective, Happier Garden of Eden is excellent because of its proximity to the new $50M Flamingo marina. This new, high-end marina is scheduled to be finished in 2024, and it will have more than 180 boat slips (including boat slips of over 100 feet or more), a 5-star hotel, a small convention center, restaurants, and retail.
This home is conveniently located within a 50-minute drive of the Liberia International Airport (LIR), and minutes to 10 Gold Coast Beaches. The beauty and potential of this area, along with its growing popularity, keep the interest and the rental occupancy rates high.
