An exclusive community in the heart of nature: Hacienda Matapalo

New Condos Online brings you this stunning new development in Costa Rica: Hacienda Matapalo is located between Quepos and Domincal, which will soon be connected by the southern spur of the Costanera highway, and occupies 665 acres of prime land between the coast and the mountains. Rising to almost 2,000 feet above sea level, it includes a 125-acre nature preserve at its highest elevation to ensure the pristine local environment will forever remain part of this upscale development.

The gated community gives investors a choice of 1.25-acre sites for custom-designed homes, as well as single-family dwellings, villas, and condos, all with state-of-the- art connectivity and 24-hour security. Given the similarities of landscape and climate with the South Pacific, the architecture draws on local materials and renewable resources, inspired by Polynesian and Balinese design well suited to an indoor/outdoor lifestyle.

Currently available are:

‘The Polynesian’ two and threebedroom condos, completely detached from neighboring units and situated in four-story buildings with tropical forest views; ‘Las Floras’ freestanding single-family villas in configurations ranging up to 3,100 feet, three-bedroom homes over two stories; ‘Las Vistas’ low-density town-homes, all of which have incredible ocean views. Private homesites are also on offer for those who wish to build a custom residence in a choice of architectural styles.

The community center and ‘El Corazon’ clubhouse, with panoramic views over the Pacific, houses a variety of swimming pools, a fully equipped fitness center, sporting facilities and spa.

For those who prefer to swim in the ocean, Hacienda Matapalo’s own shuttle transports guests to its private beach club. And the private equestrian center means you can explore the forest trails on horseback, cooling off in waterfalls on the way.

Less than half a mile away from 25 miles of virgin coastline, close to Playa Linda, Playa Matapalo, and Playa Ventanas, and in an area where development will be strictly limited, Hacienda Matapalo has been identified by International Living Magazine as possibly the best investment opportunity in Costa Rica.

To date, almost one third of purchase here have been made via Individual Retirement Accounts (also known as Self-Directed IRAs). US retirees are free to undertake tax-free rollovers from existing retirement accounts to Self- Directed IRAs, whereupon they can invest in any form of real estate they wish. As you’d expect, there are some important rules and regulations to comply with to satisfy the IRS, but Michael Starkey, one of the developers, in an experienced financial planner and is available to counsel interested parties.

Costa Rica project Hacienda Matapalo to make waves – Costa Rica Evolves

New Condos Online is pleased to present Hacienda Matapalo in the Central South Region of Costa Rica contain some of the most enchanting environments in the world, both natural and those created to enhance the comforts of their residents. Such conditions definitely contribute to Costa Rica’s real estate market boom in recent years. This project in the preconstruction phase and has seen a consistent interest from U.S and Canadian investors and new home buyers.


Costa Rica has been the buzzword for those seeking a tropical Disneyland-like eco-tourism experience, with
monkeys, birds, and butterflies frolicking and is called the place with the richest biodiversity in the world.


Nature has smiled on this small country of 52,100 square kilometers, with the geography, and climate making it
an ideal location for tourism and real estate appreciation approaching 34% annually since 1994.
Historically, the only tourists venturing down south on the Pacific coast were those going to see Manuel Antonio
Park (the most widely visited park in Costa Rica), and the surfing crowd going to Dominical, or to view the area
where "the mountains meet the sea" .


Changes are coming-

1) A new international airport in being built in Palma Sur and is scheduled for completion by the year 2010


2) A new 80,000 S.F. hospital has been completed


3) The Costenera Highway (Pacific Coast Highway) is in final stages of being fully paved (to Panama)


4) The largest marina in Central America is being built in Quepos


This has led to a new construction boom, with most of the developers just now seeking the right property to
purchase and begin planning a development. However, one developer, saw the writing on the wall, and was able to be ahead of the curve in this booming region. The developers of hacienda Matapalo purchased a 665 acre parcel of oceanview land before the changes mentioned above and are offering a luxury gated community with amenities never before seen in the region at Pre-Construction pricing. Hacienda Matapalo is in the final stages of the permitting process, and is offering an opportunity for savvy investors and those seeking a retirement/second home.
