Retirement Rental Business for Sale in the Central Valley of Costa Rica

.5 acre 5 buildings 7 Bedrooms 8 Bathrooms Year Built: 2005

This Retirement Rental Business for Sale in the Central Valley of Costa Rica is located in the highlands of San Ramon, just 50 minutes from SJO, the international airport. This is a beautifully maintained compound with gorgeous views from just about everywhere you stand. Built into the side of a mountain in the scenic area of El Empalme, your neighbors ride horses, grow coffee, work in San Ramon and San Jose, and some are just enjoying their retirement from the States and Canada. Come do the same! Right now the compound is set up as a retirement rental community. Short and long term rentals are available to adults only. As it stands, its a business that could run itself, or be completely hands on. It all depends on you. Workers are in place to continue the gardening, maintenance, and any future building you can imagine. The owners presently are “retired” but enjoy the gardening, planning, involvement with the renters and in that vein, this is a great investment for a couple who wants to “retire” the same way – keeping busy! I could also see it as a wonderful additional to any community of faith that is looking for a religious retreat property to offer to their followers, or as a wellness retreat with farm to table food, walking trails, peaceful yoga or tai chi on the mountain top – really the sky is the limit on what you can do here.

The property consists of the following units:


Building 1 (original, renovated structure)
1 BR house, single story (part of L shaped living area could be walled off for a small 2nd BR)

Building 2 – Loro house
2 BR house, single story with a ramp up to master suite area to provide spectacular views with private balcony off BR


Building 3:
1 BR, two-story duplex w/double carport
Contiguous Efficiency Apartment on second story

EE8264 Garden paths

Building 4:
Studio Apartment
16′ x 20′, fully stocked, modern Gym for the complex
Music Room, Workshop and Storage area

Building 5:
Studio Apartment
Community Center and Lookout Terrace for the Upper Property


Top Gardens have a common outdoor activity area (40′ x 60′)  for all kinds of games: archery, croquet, badminton to name a few. Also has a common BBQ and picnic area. Would be amazing for any kind of small group outdoor exercise as well.

Basically just looking to travel more, the owners are quite flexible on the arrangements/financing of this project for its next owner. For example, they are willing to rent back their own house (Building 1’s duplex) for up to 5 years towards the sale. If you are interested, be creative! This is Costa Rica-deals of all shapes and sizes have been made. The whole property is in a corporation for ease of transfer, but is also legally divided into separate lots for each building should someone want to create a condo development and sell off each home after they purchase it. The hard work has already been done. There is also the possibility of adding land on in any direction by purchasing lots from the neighbors.

You truly have to see this property to believe it. Comes completely turnkey with all the houses, furniture, linens, gym equipment, BBQ equipment, golf cart to get you up the hill on a lazy day, game equipment – you name it.  Come enjoy this wonderful little slice of Paradise!
