is a small, well run B&B with a gourmet
dining restaurant set at 4,200 feet elevation in the
mountains of Costa Rica’s Central Valley just minutes from
the primary international airport and major tourist
attractions on the road to Poas Volcano, Doka Coffee
Plantation, and La Paz Waterfall Gardens. With four rooms
with private baths for overnight guests, most B&Bs in the
USA wouldn’t be profitable. But with the lower cost of
living and labor in Costa Rica, and being paid in dollars,
this B&B is a moneymaker.
intimate restaurant which seats 25-30 is known for the high
quality of food and wine they serve. Overnight guests as
well as guests staying at neighboring lodgings love the
experience and are amazed at the fare.
Originally a typical Costa Rican “shotgun”
home, the entire facility is a long and narrow parcel. The
two buildings extend from front to back with beautiful
plantings, gardens, and patios that occupy the entire lot.
Rooms on the second floor enjoy fantastic views of Poás
volcano and the nearby coffee plantations while basking in
the cool highland breezes.
By combining creative marketing targeted to
their intended North American and European audience and
offering unique services, the owner has captured
enthusiastic travelers and a variety of revenue streams
including rental car and excursion commissions in addition
to the rooms and dining.
Offered at just $249,000 USD.
Owner terms available.
Small B&B’s in the USA rarely make enough to
be considered more than a hobby. Certainly in this price
range, one would normally be buying a modest house and a
hobby business. In the case of this B&B, the numbers
actually work quite well. For the cost of a typical down
payment on a profitable inn in the United States, one could
buy this property and business outright, live on premises,
and make a comfortable living.
This is an ideal
investment for a retiree or couple as the combination of
independent income and the investment in a Costa Rican
tourism business are a winning combination.
