Multiple Expansion Opportunities to Create A Family Compound or Rental Business
Just off the laundry room is an area perfect for a third bedroom or office. The building site has already been cut and a space left in the hallway for the door to be added. In addition to this area behind the house there are two buildable spaces in the front of the house. To the right of the driveway entrance is a larger area and up above that is a slightly smaller location. With these two you could create hot tub event spaces or two rental cabinas to be placed on Airbnb. These spaces allow you to create the rental business you want while maintaining the privacy in your own home. The property is easily accessible by 2WD all year long so your guests don’t have to worry about their rental cars.
When you gaze out over the valley from the pool there is sloped, unplanted land. This is another ideal spot for a rental cabina but could also be used as a large garden for sustainable living. With the $500 planting credit you could begin landscaping immediately and have the garden in full bloom before you arrive.

Beauty in Abundance at the Tinamaste Farmers Market and Nearby Waterfalls; Nauyaca and Eco Chantales
Some of Southern Costa Rica’s largest tourist attractions are located minutes from your doorstep. It’s a great place to live and a highly desirable place for vacationers. Up the road from Platanillo is Tinamaste, a valley full of permaculture farms selling their organic produce at the market every Tuesday. It’s one of the largest farmers markets in this zone and brings visitors from all over. The flavors are fantastic and it’s not uncommon to walk away with a fruit or vegetable you’ve never seen before.
On your way to the beach is one of the most highly trafficked waterfalls in the south Pacific, Nauyaca. This two story waterfall puts it all out there for everyone to see. You can access the fall by horseback, jeep, or hike that allows you to sit in the small pools along the way. Once there the top level is a boulder's dream with giant rocks to climb, picnic, and sun bathe on. At the bottom you’ll find plenty of waterfall climbers who jump from great distances into the pool below.
Deeper in the valley fewer people dare to venture to the Eco Chantales waterfall. This agua giant is one of the most powerful falls in the area and only requires a short hike. You can hear the water raging as you begin your decent and towards the end there are concrete steps and guard rails so you can get a bit closer and take the perfect picture. As you enter the pool for a swim you’ll be enamored by the sheer size of the falls and the giant rocks that sit beside it, remnants of the previous cliffside.
All of these features make this home an absolute dream to live in. Imagine spending peaceful mornings in the mountains and adventuring through your day. The Pura Vida life is waiting for you.
