This charming and very reputable Spanish Colonial style turnkey Bed and Breakfast is located in a residential area and offers its guest the possibility to use the facilities at the Cariari Country Club, just a 5-minute walk from the property of 5,000 sq. ft. on almost 1/2 an acre of land with banana/mango/avocado/lemon/tangerine trees, above the banks of a cascading river. The B&B is a great basecamp to enjoy one holidays or doing business in San Jose. If you are looking at retirement semi-retirement or, even early retirement, consider this as an option that will provide a good income, exciting lifestyle and more. The 5 B&B are elegantly decorated with a rustic style and wooden furniture. They have ceiling fans, wardrobes, cable TV and a small fridge. The bathrooms have showers. The staff at Cariari B&B prepares breakfast every morning that they serve to its guests in the dining room. Many repeat customers. The property is configured perfectly for addressing various travelers markets like ex pats who live in Costa Rica and tourists. Very positive Trip advisor comments.
It has a huge kitchen with 2 sink areas 2 huge refrigerator/freezers + extra freezer / Dining room. for 10 – 12 persons/plus the Breakfast Patio has 2 more tables that will seat with 2 desk areas–1 with Guest computer/living. living room. with fireplace–1/2 bath . & a Japanese Garden–oversized 2 car garage. The long cozy outdoor breakfast patio–next to the Kit & dining room is always open for coffee, food, or just conversation. The spacious deck is always cool & comfortable and great for socializing. Partially covered, yet room to sunbath- also used for massage, yoga, reading, relaxing, meetings, fiestas & weddings. The sound of the cascading river is very relaxing. Plus the songs of the many Costa Rican birds!
The B&B could be converted and expandable as an 8 to 10 room small Hotel or B&B and in my point of view could be a cash flow machine if properly managed. The property price basically sells as the value of the house, the business is for free. Owner wants to retire and wants to leave the property in good hands.

I hereby declare that I know Mr. Peter Van Hussen, owner of Eco-Realtor Costa Rica Company, for more than 5 years.
During all that time, Peter has characterized himself, among other personal merits, for been a person who loves nature and for working actively in projects, programs, commissions and working groups related to nature preservation and to environmental conservation in general.
During all the years that I worked as an environmental advisor for the Central Pacific Chamber of Commerce and for the Municipality of Garabito County, both located in Jacó City, I could observe that Peter was regularly invited to be part of projects and working commissions that had to do –among other topics- with the reduction of the environmental pollution existing in the Garabito County due to untreated sewage waters, with conservation and restoration of the watersheds that exist in the mountain zone of the county, with the problems that exist in the coastal zone, with ecotourism development, with protection and development of the nearby national parks and equivalent reserves, and in general with sustainable development of Garabito.
In all these commissions and working groups, Peter stands out for his excellent ideas and for his very active participation, and for the personal experience he demonstrated because of the jobs he has had and because of the many trips he has taken in his life.

Peter was personally recommended to me by one of his peers – a successful real estate professional – and I quickly knew why. I realized that Peter’s ethics towards responsible stewardship of land was exactly what I was looking for in marketing my unusual property of virgin forest. He listened carefully and understood my desire to search for a buyer intending to preserve the forest in perpetuity, and he already had the connections to advertise to this type of client. I am very impressed by the weight Peter places in responsibility towards a sustainable environment as an integral part of his business.David Reuland
