Costa Rica home for sale with a guest house in the Central Valley

Costa Rica home for sale with a guest house in the Central ValleyFor sure, once you move to Costa Rica, family, friends, friends of friends and friends of family will think you’re a new vacation destination. Don’t worry; it happened to all of us. For many, if you can afford it, the solution is to purchase a Costa Rica home for sale with a guest house.

The advantage of a home for sale with a guesthouse is that you can have the guests out of the house. You give them a key and they are not an invasion on your privacy.

The question is, in which location does it make sense to buy a Costa Rica home for sale with a guest house and were doesn’t it?

Almost as important is the fact that you don’t want the guest house be too nice, because your guests might never leave again.

Urban or rural

If you are a city person and you love to be in the midst of all the amenities like the shopping malls, wining and dining and private hospitals, you will find that the cost of land is a lot higher than it is in the rural areas. So if you are looking for a home for sale with  a guesthouse in an urban area, your budget needs to be it bit higher than it has to in a rural area.

If you love the beach, again you will have to adjust your budget to your requirements. The closer you get to the beach, the more money you will have to pay for a beach home for sale with a guest house. I’ll have another article soon on Costa Rica homes for sale with a guest house on the beach.

Some guesthouses are small, other are huge. Some are barely comfortable, so your guests won’t stay too long, other are so luxury and comfortable, your guests will never want to leave again.

You decide what you want to buy

The advantages of having a guesthouse are:

1.    You can have your family visiting often

2.    You can have your mother in law live with you

3.    You can create yourself some additional income once you have decided to not accept any more guests or send your mother in law back home.
