A furnished, 1BR/2BA home located less than one block off the beach.
This quaint, thatched roof beach house is just steps away from the beach but is tucked enough away for it to feel like a little garden oasis, full of fruit trees and teeming with birds.
Currently has a long-term tenant who maintains the property (lease ends or is renewable in November 2015). A great opportunity for someone interested in buying now but not ready to move until later.
The property sits on a lot that measures 46ft x 66ft (14m x 20m). The total square footage of the house is approximately 1400 sq ft, including a screened-in porch with overhead fans.
The upstairs features hard wood floors and an open floor plan. The living area is spacious and includes a nook to use as a computer workspace or tv area.
The roof is pitched and is over 20 feet high and offers exceptional airflow, keeping it nice and cool throughout the year. The ceiling is made from split bamboo that is covered with plastic sheeting and then capped with layers of traditional thatch. It is surprisingly water tight, even in heavy rains.
The kitchen is tiled, has plenty of granite counterspace, double sinks, is equipped with high quality appliances and has a view of the ocean in two directions.
For additional storage, there is a walk-in pantry with lots of shelf space.

There is also a full bath upstairs. All fixtures throughout the house have both hot and cold plumbing.
The balcony is a great place to relax and enjoy the garden and birds.
Downstairs is the bedroom that is equipped with A/C and queen size bed.
The bedroom has a full bath with storage of toiletries.

The house has a large cistern as well as an elevated water tank to ensure that plenty of water is available throughout the house during any power outages.
Location of "Casa Crucita" relative to the beach (thatch roofed house with blue raised water tank).
The house is located within 100 feet of the beach on Crucita's quiet southern end, within short walking distance (<5 min) to seafood restaurants and the fishing boats for fresh fish in the mornings. There is a small storefront less than a minute away that has basic supplies like milk, fresh eggs, cold beer, some veggies, toiletries, and can recharge the minutes on your cell phone.
