Coming from the US, and it is the same for Canada, I am used to a duplex being a single property with 2 "separate" attached homes. Costa Rica takes "duplex" to another level...no pun intended! This very unique property consists of 2 separate condominiums, one on top of the other. Like most duplex owners, you live in one side and rent out the other. Or, in this case, live on one floor and rent out the other.
This property has some amazing benefits when we consider condominium living. Besides the economic benefits, which we'll touch on in a moment, the Costa Rica construction method makes duplex living soundproof. Using concrete block, rebar, and cement, the majority of the condominiums are almost completely soundproof. In addition, these structures are built to both last and to also endure just about anything mother nature can throw at them.
Are you a business owner or have a large extended family? This property is ideal for you! With 2 full bedrooms in each unit, you can very comfortably sleep at least 8 people. In addition, there are VERY FEW 4 bedroom houses that are this close to the beach for anywhere close to this price!! You can easily walk to the beach in less that 5 minutes and have everything you could possibly need right here in Las Palmas...restaurants, grocery, coffee shops, retail, and a wonderful full-service spa. Also, you are less than half a mile to downtown Coco.
Another benefit of this property is the flexibility that this allows from a property management perspective. There isn't any need to wonder about "short term" or "long term" rental options...DO BOTH! Not to mention that there are 4 parking spaces off the street, and the pool/jacuzzi and tropical landscaped grounds are all yours to enjoy. Being a home owner, you also don't have HOA fees. The property is located in a very quiet section on the southern edge of Las Palmas, right across from a park.
