Vistas del Mar is an Eco-Residence Project that has been designed to harmoniously blend in with the surrounding nature. Encompassing 132 hectares (plus 100 Ha of biological reserve Cerro El Chompipe), the project is located on a plateau in Hacienda Vieja, Orotina, just 30 km east of San Jose. At 660 m above sea level (similar elevation to Atenas), the location has been chosen for its excellent climate. The project will be linked to San Jose via the new Ciudad Colon-Orotina highway, and can be accessed through Hacienda Vieja, Orotina. The unique characteristic of this project is that there is separated a 30HJa reserve just for protection.
The area is blessed with a variety of wild flora and fauna, including three different species of monkey. The project’s westernmost boundary is Quebrada Pital, a freshwater stream teeming with life. Spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean can be enjoyed from any location on the property. To the south, sweeping views take in Punta Leona all the way to Jicaral in the Nicoya Gulf. The west of San Jose is visible to the north (Santa Ana and Ciudad Colon) and San Pablo, San Pedro de Turrubares and Puriscal are visible to the east. This project is unique due to its climate, mountainous terrain and view, as well as its proximity to San Jose and the beaches of the Pacific. Also regrading this development, to be considered the new airport to be built in the future. There are 12 houses build already and 50 lots were sold in the project.
The project has its own water system, which draws water from different six springs in the mountains within the project’s boundaries. The electricity is also, already installed.
5 condo sites and a boutique Hotel site has been projected in the master plan.
All patents and licenses are in order, ready to contract. This project is a turnkey operation to be started right now; all lots are segregated. There are two model homes constructed.
We are also thinking about elderly care as a feature for this project because of the great climate and location. As social areas a club house is being planned and two tennis courts as common areas, subterraneous electricity infrastructure.
We are looking for potential investors or JV for the condo sites, boutique hotel site and or franchise/ elderly care projects, retirement community, and also can be purchased the whole project or we are looking for individual lot sales.
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
