Additionally, there is a fully furnished, owners/administration house overlooking the pool. The villa has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with a full kitchen and roof top terrazzo with BBQ. The villa is currently rented out as a vacation rental for additional cash flow, as the current owners live off site. Two other vacation villas are located at the rear of the property which are investor owned but managed and rented by the hotel providing an additional income stream.
The property is fully staffed with receptionist, cooks, maids, maintenance and garden staff as well as night security. Hotel income streams currently include: hotel room sales, food and beverage sales, concierge service for tours and excursions and transportation service to local areas and San Jose airport with the 12 seat minivan owned by the hotel. Additional income comes from property management and rental of vacation villas and condos both on and off the property.
Gross income for 2016 showed an increase year on year with a good net profit margin of 30%. First quarter 2017 accounts are currently in finalization, however, it is expected that these will again show a steady growth in income. Management Accounts can be made available to qualified buyers. There is plenty of scope to increase revenue by expanding the rental of offsite vacation rentals, and increasing promotion and sales of the concierge, transportation business and restaurant.
