This house build in 1936 is located near the Supreme Courts, a complex of mid-rise buildings with 1960s flair. Hustling lawyers and the rest of the legal system spill out into the plaza and surrounding streets, which are lined with copy centers, legal bookstores and small eateries where you can still get a full cooked-to-order meal for less than $3. It will take you 10 minutes by foot from the nationa theatre to this beautiful house.
This beautiful restored house is possible to restore to 10 rooms as a Bed and Breakfast, with a reception and inside patio, laundry and garage, a small garden in front. The floors and ceilings are out of old wood, and have a very rustic atmosphere. According the selling price we think this could be an excellent investment and within 4 years your investment could be covered for.
Of course some renovations have to be done to convert this beautiful house into a bed and breakfast and the owner claims that 6 bathrooms have to be created but pipes are all in place. The owner also claims an additional investment of about $50.000 is to be invested to be ready to operate. The neighborhood is quite safe because of all the judicial buildings and parking is available on the streets if not parking businesses are available nearby.
Taking into consideration the listing price this could be a great investment and a good deal of cash flow.
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
