The Government is focused on making Golfito a major destination in Costa Rica and they have recently been investing large funds in the town's infrastructure.
In the center of everything is of course the new world class Marina, one of the biggest projects ever undertaken in the Southern Zone.
With all these upgrades and investments going on in Golfito, Zona Americana is receiving a lot of attention. Zona Americana, the most exclusive neighborhood in Golfito, has recently had many houses and businesses changing ownership and prices are steadily increasing.
The best deal in this neighborhood is this completely remodeled (Nov 2017) historic Banana Company House. It is a two story, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms that sits on a large flat ¼ acre lot (1078m2) with plenty of space for additional structures and swimming pool. There are two bedrooms upstairs and an extra apartment downstairs that could be used for extra income or family visiting.
The location is perfect with only three doors down from the 5 star Casa Roland Resort and walking distance to the Bay and the New Marina. You are in great company on this street, with other neighbors asking prices starting at $550 000 up to $1,000,000!
The house was completely remodeled in Nov 2017 both inside and out. The original hardwood floors, decks, beams and cabinetry have been carefully refurbished.
The electrical and plumbing systems have been upgraded as well as new windows all around. If you’ve never had the pleasure of living in an older wooden home, they are wonderful, imagine your own wooden bungalow near the Bay!.
The main entry to the home is on the second floor, where you enter a light filled living room. There are two bedrooms on this floor with a shared bath in-between. The downstairs has a large third bedroom / studio apartment with its own entrance,bathroom, office and washroom areas and storage room as well. There is a long 2 car-garage with plenty of space, that could also be converted into another living space. Because the house has road frontage on both sides, a pull through driveway could easily be built for boats and trailers.
This is one of the few houses that has frontage on two streets, and located about 100 yards from the 5-star luxury Hotel Casa Roland Golfito. This Hotel really is an incredible landmark; you’d have to see it to believe it, really! It’s nicer than most in San Jose, including conference rooms, large exercise gym with all the machines, several bars, a movie theater, tennis courts and the pool is the largest I’ve seen anywhere in these parts. For a small entrance fee it’s a great way to spend a lazy afternoon lying, eating and drinking poolside!
Homes in this neighborhood hold their values, upgraded homes, such as this offering at $295 000 is a great bargain.
