The property is in the highly regarded Villa Verde II gated condominium, which has a total of 60 units, which are divided into two sections. It is situated on the third and fourth floors of the building and is south-north orientated, so it is bright but without the glare of direct sunlight.
The first level comprises a living and dining room with an integrated kitchen. The living room has a balcony leading off, providing fine views over the gardens and pool. The kitchen is equipped with a stove, microwave oven, fridge and washing machine and looks on to trees and a green area.
On the second level are the two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The principal bedroom also has a balcony and views which are similar to those of the living room below. The smaller second bedroom has a similar outlook to that of the kitchen.
The fully furnished apartment has the benefit of air conditioning, with three units. It is in an excellent clean condition, having had some renovation work and redecorating carried out about a year ago. It now needs no work doing to it and is ready to move into.
The property has excellent rental potential and should be of considerable interest to investors, as well as those looking to buy for their own occupation. A similar, but slightly smaller apartment is rented out for US$500.00 a week for about eight months of the year. Details of the property’s outgoings will be provided on request.
There is a very important point about the future capital value of the property. All the land close to the beaches and town centre has now been built on and new developments are having to be built in the hills, some 3 to 5 km from the sea and the town, even more in some cases. It seems inevitable that the values of properties as close to the sea and all the facilities of the town as this apartment will benefit from above average increases in value in the future.
Located on the country’s northern Pacific Coast on the Nicoya Peninsula, Tamarindo is a highly regarded tourist resort and town and a major centre for a wide variety of water sports. It is particularly well known for eco-tourism, surfing including wind and kite surfing, sport fishing, zip lining, scuba diving, snorkelling and boat tours.
There are also nature and wild life tours, health clubs, a tennis club, children’s play garden, horseback riding tours, a small casino, salsa club, cycling and off road four wheel drive tours, kayaking and canoeing.
The town has two banks, two small supermarkets, plus a large air conditioned one just outside the town, a variety of shops and many cafés, bars and restaurants. The Saturday Farmers’ Markets are a great favourite.
The town’s beach, Playa Tamarindo, is a beautiful beach which is just five minutes walk from the property. On the other side of the Tamarindo River is the Playa Grande and this is where the leatherback turtles nest, taking over the beach from November to April.
In conclusion, it is hardly surprising that Tamarindo has gradually evolved from a small fishing village to the most important tourist resort in the region. That suggests rising rents and rising values while, at the same time, enjoying all that this wonderful town and area have to offer.
