Las Tres Tortugas is the perfect fit for those who dream of living in a tropical paradise, while receiving guests to share all the beauty of nature around and the luxury of quiet and peace.
It consists of three independent buildings sitting on a 3,943m2 lot, granting privacy for owners and guests. The main house, surrounded by tropical gardens, allows for quiet family living for the owners, while being steps away from the one-bedroom cottage and the 3 private suites for guests. The manicured pathways and landscaped garden guarantee privacy for each of the three separate buildings.
Not only the set up, but also the location is ideal for a small hotel: with public road frontage, allowing for commercial activity, yet inside a residential community with 24-hour guard and unlimited access to the high-end amenities for guests and owners. A double infinity edge pool with separate lap lanes and swim up table area, a solar heated Jacuzzi, a gym and fitness center, a yoga studio, a tennis court and a club House with cook- out areas, all form part of daily life at Las Tres Tortugas.
The main house, with an under roof surface of 239m2, allows for ample family living, with an open kitchen with dining area and a guest bedroom on the ground floor, and ample terraces looking out over the tropical garden. The very spacious master bedroom with ample bathroom on the second floor offers an ocean view! The huge second floor terrace even provides space for expansion with a third bedroom.
Walking down from the main house through the garden, one first reaches the one-bedroom guest house, which can easily host up to four guests by using the pull-out sofa in the living area. A fully equipped kitchen and a private bathroom complete the comfort of the guests.
A little further down the pathway, the building housing 3 identical private suites is nestled quaintly and privately between the tropical plants. Each suite is provided with a king size bed, a kitchenette with refrigerator, a full bathroom and a private terrace, from where the guests can enjoy the sounds of nature around and watch hummingbirds and iguanas roam around in the garden.
All bedrooms in the main house and independences are equipped with air conditioning units and fans.
The garden has been manicured and an automatic, programmable irrigation system ensures that the mature fruit trees, such as lime and mango, orange and papaya, guanabana, manzana de agua and guyava just to name a few, provide fresh fruit throughout the year.
Las Tres Tortugas has a private entrance directly from the main road, but can also be accessed through the main gate of the residential community.
The lot itself offers room for expansion, yet if that would not be enough, the neighboring lot of 5,394m2 could be purchased as well.
The pristine beaches of Playa Junquillal and Playa Blanca are only 2 kilometers away and can be reached walking, biking or driving. Playa Junquillal is one of the country’s most important nesting beaches for Leatherback, Olive Ridley and Black Turtles, and was awarded an “Ecological Blue Flag” for being one of Costa Rica’s cleanest beaches. Experienced surfers can try their luck with the fast beach breaks that roll in at Playa Junquillal, or you can also wade or swim in the calmer areas or meander along the water’s edge on the 2-mile stretch of beach. It’s not uncommon to catch a glimpse of dolphins, whales or stingrays jumping out at sea. Sunset on the beach is a daily spectacle you won’t want to miss.
In short, this property has all you need for luxury family living in the tropics while generating income from hosting guests: location, set up, permits, luxury amenities, nature, beach, tranquility. With some extra marketing effort one can make this place a thriving business, while savoring the same delights of life in the tropics as the guests by living on site!
