Right now we have a very interesting listing here at TOP Mexico Real Estate. It’s called Casa la Roca and it’s located in the gated community of Puerto Aventuras, located halfway between Playa del Carmen and Tulum. This property is interesting because it offers plenty of business opportunities for its owner.
Recently I walked through the front door of Casa La Roca and was blown away with a floor to ceiling view of the ocean. As I continued my tour, I realized that not only is this a truly beautiful home, but the design lends itself as a fantastic investment opportunity for a small business.
The home has 6 en-suite bedrooms, 5 of which have an incredible view of the ocean, making it perfect for a high-end B&B or small boutique hotel. The living area has an open kitchen, a great space for guests to enjoy breakfast, and the couches make the area warm and inviting. The outdoor space has a large and beautiful infinity pool, and sun beds facing the Caribbean.
Great potential as rental property
I was curious about rental opportunities in this area for a short getaway, and did some research on the internet to find a price point for one bedroom ocean front properties in Puerto Aventuras, and averaged it out over the seasonal price differentials. What was really exciting to me was the fact that there are hardly any 1 bedroom beach front properties, which means that if you want to be by the beach, you have to make a serious investment in a condo or house that has 3 bedrooms and up. And if you’re traveling with your partner only, this can be an expensive option.
Considering this fact, Casa La Roca can be an interesting investment as a rental property. The house has 4 hotel style rooms and 1 very luxurious penthouse suite with a huge balcony looking out over the Ocean.
So, why not offer B&B services in this stunning home?
Because of its design, it allows to rent out just one bedroom to a couple and up to the whole house to a family or group of friends.
Most of the bedrooms have beautiful views of the ocean, and it’s a luxurious property with all the amenities to spend a relaxing and comfortable getaway. It’s perfect!
Check out the numbers
I would like to share my vision with you.If you offer a B&B service in this house, these are the potential earnings that you can make.
|Casa La Roca – Listed at $1,400,000 USD
|Projected annual gross income for the rental of rooms and PH at 50% occupancy
|Projected ROI based on 25% running costs and 50% occupancy
|Projected ROI based on 30% running costs and 50% occupancy
These figures are estimates. Please note that the running costs would depend on how the business was structured. If you lived there and did most of the work yourself, the net return would be higher.
The 6th room above the garage is also rentable but I didn’t include it in my projection, since it’s not beachfront and would rent out for a minimal amount.
Also, occupancy would depend on marketing strategies.
Check out these figures if you offer a B&B service.
