U$2,200,000 - Beach Front Business Next to Carnival Cruise Lines
- $ 2 200 000
- Shop/Retail Space For Sale
This is a fantastic business opportunity as this property has 75,000 square feet of beach front land in Maimon almost opposite to where the Carnival Cruise Liners are due to berth in 2014. With an anticipated arrival of at least eight thousand passengers plus crew every week, the business potential is enormous.
The infrastructure water, electricity, and gas etc are all in place throughout the gardens and grounds, including a large almost completed villa and restaurant, plus a separate retail shop with office space fronting onto the road and the cruise terminal.
The attractive, slightly oriental style restaurant is just inside the main gates and has seating for 80/100 guests with public toilets already in place. The kitchen has still to be fitted with the latest professional equipment ready to accommodate the daily arrival of all the cruise line support workers which in itself could generate an income from providing coffee and breakfasts before the passengers even disembark.
There is also time to develop one or more attractions to entice passengers to stop and walk in, as well as, the visitors, service providers supplying the cruise ships and passengers, such as taxi drivers, tour operators, provision suppliers, as well as, the large numbers of officers and crew who do spend money ashore.
One idea could be to create a Taino village where the history of the island could be shown on screens, with the opportunity for people to enjoy the peace of the reconstructed Taino village, watch traditional dances being performed, buy souvenirs and artwork, fabulous carvings and refreshments, and join in with other activities like making chocolate, or watch traditional clothes being made. The possibilities are endless.
On the property is a large villa set on the raised part of the land where there are panoramic views of Maimon Bay and its lovely harbor below. This is the perfect place for watching the sunrise and the cruise ships arriving, while enjoying fresh fruits from the garden, with delicious Dominican coffee.
The villa has four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms, a large garage/work shop and two terraces one cool and shady on the first floor, and the other on the second floor with panoramic views of the ocean, beach and mountains from a huge 120 sq meter sun terrace. Behind the upper terrace are two large apartments with separate walk in closets and large bathrooms that will look so stylish when they are completed. Two other en-suite bedrooms are on the second floor including the Master bedroom where there is also a small office.
There will be time to meet and talk to your visitors telling them of the main highway less than half a mile away from where they can visit Luperon in one direction with its natural harbor where Christopher Columbus took shelter from a storm, and where many sailors now moor their boats. In the opposite direction is Sosua Bay with its crystal clear waters that are just perfect for swimming, snorkeling or diving. Ten minutes beyond is the world famous kite and wind surfing town of Cabarete which offers a large selection of water sports and outdoor activities. It is also the place to relax and enjoy the many beach bars, boutique shops and restaurants. Further along the road is Samana with its beautiful beaches and where the humpback whales come every year to breed in February and March.
This really is a golden opportunity to create something on the property that will attract passengers and crew looking to stretch their legs and to learn about the Dominican Republic.
