Villas del Caribe beach hotel and Shegold development properties
Villas del Caribe is one of the best hotels in the area. It tends to fill up quickly on busy weekends. One of very few local hotels directly on the beach, it overlooks the warm natural coral pools that make this part of Costa Rica so popular with visitors. We are especially popular with families and mature clients, as well as a favored destination for nationals and members of Costa Rica’s expatriate community.
The 1.3 hectare hotel site has been designed to expand into 5 to 8 prime hectares of freehold property in the heart of Shegold. In fact, future development land is considered integral to hotel operations and cannot be sold separately. There is plenty of space for new hotel rooms and related recreational facilities as well as residential lots.
We will consider serious partnership offers from qualified commercial purchasers with development, real estate sales and tourism expertise, but prefer outright sale. We are fortunate to have twelve experienced full-time personnel at the hotel and the San Jose administrative office, loyal customers and a recognized presence in the marketplace. The Hotel is up-to-date with permits, filings, patents (such as liquor license) and taxes. Financial statements are available to qualified buyers. Across the road from the hotel, four or five hectares along the main road are available for commercial or mixed-use development.
The farm area includes one hectare of sugar cane, a traditional oxen driven sugar cane mill called a "trapiche", open fenced pasture and bamboo stands. Livestock facilities are now owned and operated separately, but oxen, horses and cattle still graze Shegold's verdant "potreros" (pastures). We plan to conserve green corridors and significant forest buffers, especially around Shegold's perimeter, near the small man-made lake (a former quarry), and on the hillside watershed that frames the property's southern boundary.
