This furnished four bedroom/3 bath beach house sits on a unique property perched just about 12 steps above the main town of Manglaralto (the sleepy town just 3 minutes driving or 25 minutes walking along the beach) from the center of Montanita.
Most oceanview lots in the area are a deep walk up, but this property is a few steps above the main coastal highway and just a 2 minute walk to the beach but is just high enough to give you a spectacular oceanview all the way to the point of Montanita.
The house sits on a flat 500 m2 (5382 ft2) lot but also takes advantage of an extra 200m2 of land on a slope down to the main road that no one can use due to the proximity of the road.
Property has a trustworthy elderly caretaker that does not live on site and looks after the rental business. In high season (DEC to APR) property produces between the two bungalows and 4 bedroom house between $1000-1300, in low season the property produces between $600-800.
Owner looking to sell because his job moved from Guayaquil to Quito and can no longer visit and enjoy the house frequently due to the distance. Current owner has owned property 2 years.
Great for folks without a car, there is a bus stop right below the house on the main coastal road.
The house is also only a 1 minute walk to the only hospital in this area of the coast.
There is a bunch of high-end construction in the area which makes this a great bargain, on the same hill vacant lots are selling for over $80 per sq. meter.
The house itself has a lovely patio to observe whales, a kitchen, dining area, and 4 wide bedrooms suitable for 2 beds each and 3 full bathrooms.
There is also a maids quarters or extra bedroom in the back.
Also on the property are two bungalows finished in 2012 which have one bedroom, bathroom, kitchenette and balcony each. Each of these rent for $250-300 per month. One is made of brick and bamboo (included in sale) and the other is made of wood and is not included in the price (can be unassembled) the owner plans to take it with him… but it can be bought separate (for $4000) but the owner has over $5000 invested in it including the furniture.
The house is older construction (2000) and needs renovation but the potential is there.
The property is fenced in and has a nice, flat yard ideal for pets or children. There is one parking space below the property although it is not enclosed.
Internet is available.
There is also a backup water tank and pump system installed in early 2013 (overall investment of owner was around $500).
