Home in the Galapagos – A One-of-a-Kind Opportunity
Ever dreamed of living on a paradisiacal tropical island? How about the majestic Galapagos? This two-story home just a few blocks from the beach is your opportunity to do so!
Typically, foreigners are prohibited from buying property in the Galapagos, but because of this seller’s ingenuity, any foreigner can buy THIS property! It is in a company name, making it transferable to anyone.
This beautiful, incredibly well-built, newly constructed home has three bedrooms and six bathrooms. The first-floor acts as a separate office space.
Throughout the home you will find “cedrela” wood which is like cedarwood and has an extremely high value since it originates in the Galapagos. You won’t find wood finishes such as these in other homes since it is so expensive and rare.
In addition to the lovely woodwork, there are granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and porcelain flooring.
There are two full bathrooms and four half-baths in the building. The master bedroom has a full private bathroom with a bathtub and a walk-in closet. The two other bedrooms share a full bathroom.
The kitchen, dining, and living area offers a completely open concept with large windows that bring in natural lighting. Just off the living room is a spacious covered patio with wonderful views.
This home is just a 3-4-minute walk to the beach, Playa de la Estacion, and in one of the best areas of the island. You can even see the ocean from the house as it is about 100 meters away. Because the house is on the edge of the city, it is super quiet, private, and peaceful. You’ll even be able to see wildlife native to the area! In fact, the property borders a national park, Parque Nacional Galapagos y Fundación Charles Darwin.
There is air conditioning throughout the home. It has a 24 cubic meter water reservoir and a water treatment system for drinking water.
The property is walled for privacy and has security cameras. However, the Galapagos is known to have little to no crime, so you won’t have to worry about this.
Two floors are currently built, but the structure is good for four floors. The construction is completely reinforced for earthquakes and tsunamis. There is a spot all plumbed and ready for you to install a jacuzzi too!
The first floor of the home is currently being used as a separate office space. You could keep it as an office, rent it out, and get residual income from this investment!
At $699,000, this property is cheap as replacement costs for a home like this in the Galapagos would be $900,000.
It is located on the island of Santa Cruz in the town of Puerto Ayora! Puerto Ayora has a population of about 20,000 people and you can walk, bike, or taxi, nearly everywhere. The island is completely conserved, so there are no chemicals and it is all natural. The environment is completely protected in the Galapagos too. The area’s climate is usually always hot and quite dry.
Come, start living the life of your dreams on the Galapagos!
