Sawadee is a Thai greeting that means “hello and welcome,” and is encrusted in decorative tile above the front door of this unusual beach front home. Unimposing and plain from the outside, you will certainly feel welcome once you step through the front door and into this lovely 2000 square foot home. Decked out and sumptuous inside this one bedroom, one bath home is roomy and very well anointed. However, whereas the house is very nice, the property itself is transcendentally nice. It has 75 meters of raw sandy beach front, a spacious open maritime zone that is lightly forested with separated trees that provide shade and dappled sunlight dripping through in places. The home has a deck that looks out upon a slough that flows through the property from one side to the other and is vibrant with water birds and other wildlife. The property is titled and has its maritime zone paperwork in order and current; the slough is bridged to provide vehicular access all the way to the beach. There is a well onsite that is used at present for irrigation in the summer months. Water supply is from a spring in an adjoining property that is guaranteed to be sustained across a real estate title transfer. The property is located just fifteen minutes from the bustling peninsular capital of Puerto Jimenez but well beyond the reach of the power grid, so for the time being it is solar power only. The Carate highway passes right in front of the property, and though it is a gravel road at present, the national highway system has schedule it to be paved to the La Balsa road exit this year and then beyond Sawadee one km as far as the Sombrero region in 2020. Casa Sawadee is somewhat unique in the area in that it is really nice and very comfortable and does not have anything “rustic” about it. A live-in caretaker couple occupies a small caretaker home that is part of the property and provides ground maintenance and security. Though the ownership does not rent the home out to daily and weekly rentals, it is ideal for a vacation rental to offset maintenance costs when the new ownership is not in residence. The Osa Peninsula has 2.5% of the world’s biodiversity and boasts a wide range of activities nearby: surfing, zipline, tree climbing, waterfall rapelling, mangrove and inshore kayaking, recreational gold mining, wildlife tours, surfing, boating, inshore and offshore fishing, all of these are within easy reach and make possible a robust and healthy lifestyle.
