This is a unique investment property, only 72 steps from the gorgeous beaches of Perla Marina. An artistic structure, truly a work of art built by the talented hands of the former and current owners, this 8 bedroom property operated as a bed and breakfast/rental complex for over 10 years. It is surrounded by mature tropical fruit tree varieties curated and planted by the owners themselves.
Perla Marina Bed and Breakfast
The owners invested in Perla Marina over 17 years ago and extended this oasis piece by piece. Three years ago they decided to close their door for retirement reasons and yet they continue to get calls and visitors knocking on their door inquiring for a place to rent. Perla Marina, the gated community in which this complex is located, is much sought after due to its exclusive beaches and stunning sunsets.
One gorgeous design feature that sets this property apart are the rounded edges of every part of the building. The owners are very eco conscious and have optimized the structural design to collect rainwater, and have surrounded the area with fruit trees. Sleek lines have been intelligently carved beneath the overhang of the structures so that any rainwater that doesn’t collect falls into the garden and not the floors.
There are two buildings, the one in the back has 2 levels containing 5 studio apartments of 25sqm each plus it’s own terrace. Each studio has its own kitchenette and en suite bathroom.
The main house has a division so that on one side there is a full one bedroom apartment with full sized kitchen and on the other side of the division: 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, large kitchen and living room, plus 2 small rooms that can be used as an office or storage room. The main house has extra high ceilings and ventilation above so the hot air can rise and filter out keeping the inside naturally cool. Large double doors open from both the front and back of the house so there is a lot of cool air flowing thru the common areas.
The Pool and Garden
Outside is a beautiful kidney shaped pool right at the center of the property. A seating area with tables is covered by a thatch roof. A nautilus shaped outdoor shower offers lots of privacy to shower surrounded by mango, banana, and avocado trees. There is also structures that serve as a workshop, store room, laundry room, drying room, gardening tools room, toilet for gardener and outside toilet for guests.

At the front of the property is covered parking for 2 cars and a structure being built with the idea of making a small cafe along the road for the many passersby walking to the beach from within Perla Marina. There is also some outdoor bathrooms and storage rooms near completion with the intention of servicing the roadside cafe.
This truly is a dream property either as a large home or investment for a business.
