This lovely house sits in an established and active eco community on the outskirts of Parrita, Puntarenas province. It’s just 30 minutes from Jacó and 30 minutes from Manuel Antonio which allows for excellent adventures and outings either into the bustling little beach town of Jacó, or the magical jungle retreat that is Manuel Antonio and its famous natural reserve.
Specs for the house
Lot size: 6,600m2
House size: Approx. 120m2
Sold as a turnkey solution (including almost $15,000 worth of appliances, furniture, down to the knives and forks)
The house was built in 2008, it has been continuously maintained throughout its lifetime since the first owners spent a lot of time there, and we came down very regularly (once or twice a month). The downstairs addition was done in 2014.
The community consists of a group of retired or about to retire Americans out of which most of them have been there since the beginning when the community was established. The finca consists of a perma culture farm at the bottom of the hill, the owners of the first few lots going up have an active cacao farm on their land and going higher up there are mainly residential houses that are being used as vacation homes or permanent retirement homes.
We are selling as we are moving back to Europe due to work and family circumstances. We have had a wonderful time enjoying our house in the jungle and we hope we will now find new owners ready to take on this tropical paradise.
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
