Makara is being developed in several stages across 16.1 acres of land on both sides of the new Costanera Highway. Phase 1 is Makara Playa, a 12-unit condo/hotel, located 200 meters from the beach. The first building, with three units, is complete and Makara is now open for business. The pool and palalapa lounge area will be put in when the dry season returns along with the reception office, followed by the spa and buildings 2, 3, and 4. Makara Tres Islas, on the mountain side of the highway, will be a gated community of eight luxury homes. On the lower part of the mountain property, alongside the highway, is an area for a commercial property, with shops and an indigenous art gallery, to service the community. Makara has its own water supply, a well with the capacity to serve 900 people. More than 6 of the 18 plus acres of Makara property is primary rainforest, which is a dedicated preserve. The project has received warm approval from SETENA, the Costa Rican environmental protection agency, because of its planning and design and the construction of this first building. This project is dedicated to preserving the environment and promoting the indigenous cultures while giving local individuals the opportunity to prosper in the area, including all contractors used during construction. This 2 story, 2-bed/2-bath unit can be used for full time or rental purposes. You can close off the upper or lowed units depending on rental capacity needs. Both the upper and lower portions of this unit are the same with bedroom, kitchen and bathroom orientation. Fully furnished with luxury and sustainability at the forefront, this lovely unit is situated perfectly in todays market for customers seeking high-end needs.
