An outstanding opportunity with a View for a buyer with Vision. Casa Buena Vista is one of the original homes built in Manuel Antonio and it is situated in a prime location. Walking distance to the beach, a magnificent view of the ocean, and plenty of room to create a gorgeous home on a coveted property, this is a chance to create a true gem.

The home is a fixer-upper with plenty of upside. It was constructed out of solid concrete with double footing, something you will never see done anymore as it’s too expensive. This home can be expanded upon as is with utter confidence in its stability.

At ground level there is a separate apartment with its own entrance that could be converted into a rental, or a home for a caretaker. Equipped with a rudimentary kitchen, a bathroom, and 1 bedroom. It has a peek-a-boo view of the ocean, and enough yard area to put in a plunge pool. This is also where you access the bodega large enough for pool equipment.

The main floor has the original open kitchen and dining area that was used for the long-running BnB business operated for over a decade by the previous owner. The floors have original terracotta tile and the counter tile is a charming blue and white pattern. There’s a bathroom plus access to the single car garage. The interior is comfortably sized with a view of the ocean and could be transformed into a gorgeous studio apartment. Add a large deck and sliding glass doors and it becomes a luxury experience.

The upper floor currently has original wood floors that need refinishing. It’s also got two decks, one small to the side and one large that could be expanded along with the installation of the deck below for greatest optimization of the property.

Additionally, one could expand the second floor to include an area that currently holds a water tank but would be much better suited as a swank, glassed-in office or bedroom with a full view of the ocean.

Finally, one could also build up and add a third floor without needing additional support: a third apartment, a roof deck, or both. The opportunities are almost endless.

The home has a septic sewage system like all others in town. It has water service and electric service. The gardens are mature and provide green privacy with the neighbors to the east.

This is a rare opportunity for someone with vision and a desire to create a beautiful home on a breathtaking lot. Real estate with ocean views and walking distance from the beach are very, very rare in Manuel Antonio. If you’ve decided you want to be here, you just have to take a look at this property and imagine something special.
