All of the villas and community buildings at this mountain sustainable resort use the latest in sustainable building concepts for a tropical zone. Large overhangs to reduce direct sunlight, natural shade and modern insulation and materials will reduce interior temperature swings and save energy. And with abundant water sources located on the property we may use micro hydro plants for electrical generation to meet a portion of our community power requirements in the future. This method uses the existing water and gravity to push water through a small turbine to produce electricity.
We have planted thousands of different trees such as avocados, almonds, and 60 varieties of tropical fruits including mangos, papayas, and 5 kinds of oranges. To promote tree growth, swales were created to conserve the plentiful rainfall during the wet season for use during the dry season. The swales were built along the contour of hillsides by digging up compacted soil, aerating it and then using the soil to create down slope berms that act as sponges. Instead of the water flowing along the contour of the hill it now percolates into the soil forming underground reservoirs of water. Many of the fruit trees were planted on top of the swales and no irrigation is necessary.

I hereby declare that I know Mr. Peter Van Hussen, owner of Eco-Realtor Costa Rica Company, for more than 5 years.
During all that time, Peter has characterized himself, among other personal merits, for been a person who loves nature and for working actively in projects, programs, commissions and working groups related to nature preservation and to environmental conservation in general.
During all the years that I worked as an environmental advisor for the Central Pacific Chamber of Commerce and for the Municipality of Garabito County, both located in Jacó City, I could observe that Peter was regularly invited to be part of projects and working commissions that had to do –among other topics- with the reduction of the environmental pollution existing in the Garabito County due to untreated sewage waters, with conservation and restoration of the watersheds that exist in the mountain zone of the county, with the problems that exist in the coastal zone, with ecotourism development, with protection and development of the nearby national parks and equivalent reserves, and in general with sustainable development of Garabito.
In all these commissions and working groups, Peter stands out for his excellent ideas and for his very active participation, and for the personal experience he demonstrated because of the jobs he has had and because of the many trips he has taken in his life.

Peter was personally recommended to me by one of his peers – a successful real estate professional – and I quickly knew why. I realized that Peter’s ethics towards responsible stewardship of land was exactly what I was looking for in marketing my unusual property of virgin forest. He listened carefully and understood my desire to search for a buyer intending to preserve the forest in perpetuity, and he already had the connections to advertise to this type of client. I am very impressed by the weight Peter places in responsibility towards a sustainable environment as an integral part of his business.David Reuland
