Location: Ojochal, Costa Rica
Casa Lapas is a beautiful 3 bedroom home with easy access, incredible views and a wonderful outside area. The property is over 3 acres which gently slopes down so there is plenty of room to add additional structures or create your very own paradise garden. There are currently fruit producing trees on the property (Lemons, Papaya, Coconuts, etc). This home sits on a hillside and as soon as you drive up the driveway you are met with amazing ocean and sweeping mountain views.
Once you enter the home you will find a spacious living room with an open concept kitchen. Throughout the whole house you will notice the abundance of light coming in through the glass doors which open up to the pool area. This beautifully designed pool area ensures you can enjoy the amazing views of both the ocean and mountains. There is also a very nice constant breeze coming through this area making it a perfect place to relax!
On the ground floor you will also find the master bedroom, and the master bathroom which is very spacious and has a very large bathtub! The home also features a garage, laundry room and half bath on the ground floor. If you walk out the back of the home you will find a newly constructed Rancho area with outdoor kitchen, perfectly situated to enjoy the beautiful mountain views in the back. This is the perfect place to have a BBQ, host friends or family or just enjoy yourself!
The first floor consists of two bedrooms which both have their own bathroom and have big glass doors opening up to a balcony from where you can enjoy the views of this amazing property even more!
Casa Lapas had a major remodel completed in June 2020. At that point the home became very popular and a long-term renter moved in for six months. The remodel included:
1) The entire pool was stripped and re-tiled with new ceramic,
2) The old wooden deck was removed and replaced with a new, 40% larger deck, new pool-side furniture
3) New sidewalks encircling the swimming pool.
4) New picnic table space added (now there are two areas next to the pool providing a great place to socialize without having to be in the pool). They are also great places to put cocktails and snacks while enjoying the outdoors.
5) The rancho had rain gutters added, tile flooring, ceramic tile countertops, a gas stovetop and emergency lighting.
6) Emergency lighting added on the main floor kitchen area.
7) New master-suite furniture, bed, mattress
8) New linens and towels throughout the home.
9) Two new SmartTV's. One in the living room/sala and one in the master suite.
Casa Lapas has never been in better shape except for the day it was completed.
This home has everything. Comfort. Views. Easy access (which is rare in the Southern Pacific zone of Costa Rica). Year round 2WD access is all that is needed. There are ocean views, ever changing mountain views and wildlife nearby. Scarlet macaws, howler monkeys, green parrots and toucans (to name the most common).
The home rents out very well, both long and short term and the current management company (Osa property management) would love to continue managing the property for the new owners, this way you are set up to start renting from the very first day that you own the property with an experienced and well regarded property manager!
