Rain and Shine.

This pic was taken behind VDL's front entrance and shows the rain in the mountains. We get a lot of sunshine here (more the most places in Costa Rica) but it's the mountain rains that keep our area green, tropical and therefor unique.

VDL Homes and Warehouse.

Even though there has been some welcome rain here we've been able to stay ahead in our construction schedules.  Since the 226 property titles, VDL is quickly catching up to Pacific Blue for numbers of home sites being cleared for construction.

Monterra now has 80 home building crew members on staff. This translates to tons of materials and handling plus the need for good storage. The Monterra warehouse will act more like a 'Home Depot' then a storage facility, with inventory management and a wide selection of consumer related products. There will also be storage faculties available for home owners who need to store items while in the process of moving into their homes. Call us at (905) 750-0010 for more info.

 Our fleet is growing to keep up with our construction managers.

Here's a quote from our General Contractor today.  

" We are getting a lot of rain.  Our window for starting new homes in VDL is closing fast.  I’ve prepared access to the existing construction of the homes we started. In a few weeks we'll be in the 2014 year for scheduling"

Here's a quick photo update of some progress in our developments.

Despite the Holy Week holidays in Costa Rica this past week, our crews are very busy as more home orders are coming in. We're now building in 2 of the 4 Monterra developments, VDL being the next one. Now that VDL has recently been issued titles, we have another 15 homes to start in that development shortly.
We are expecting some shipping containers (construction materials etc.) to arrive at the Caldera Port next month so we should see the long a waited 14,000 sq.ft. warehouse finally initiated.

There are no whales in Whale Bay, Tambor.

We've heard it more then once that the famous bay in Tambor 'Whale Bay' has not been visited by whales for decades. Of course this comment seems to come from people that don't live here. Just ask any local fisherman and they will tell you that every year many whales come right inside the bay and sometimes stay here for days at a time. As do the dolphins and the huge manta rays.

Getting a picture is another story. The local fishermen don't carry cameras and even if they did they would not be photographing marine life. So to get a photo of whale, a humpback whale to be exact takes some luck. We got lucky a few weeks ago when we saw this humpback whale swim out of Tambor Bay with her calf.
A telephoto lens would have been nice but we manged to get the camera out of the bag and get the shot just as they dove. We waited for another 20 minutes for them to surface but our fishing trip had  to resume. Later we saw them 20km away heading north.

Recession? What Recession?

As more and more of our customers come back to Costa Rica to check on our building and development progress, it's easy for them to see just how busy we really are. And after a site tour with Michael, our General Contractor, it becomes apparent that Monterra's construction division is ramped-up and fully trade operational.
Michael says, " We have more then 25 homes on the board as of today (Dec. 28th) and we are expecting 25 more by June (2013). Our crew has been expanded to 30 guys and we'll need another 30 by March". 

It looks like we are quickly approaching our maximum construction allotment for 2013 so if you're considering a build this year then please call our office at (905) 750-0010 ASAP to receive and review our Architectural Agreement. Square foot cost is going up Feb.18th but you can still lock in at 2012 prices before then.

Rios del Sol - Phase 2 Titles are Here!

From the Central Registry, in San Jose, we have just received the first 17 titles for RDS Phase 2. The final number of lots to be developed is only 35! (down approx 50% from the previous master plan) making this phase very exclusive, great for big sky lovers and extreme nature seekers.
This phase is adjacent to the famous Nicoya Biological Corridor and is one of the most Flora / Fauna abundant areas in Costa Rica. Phase 2 also offers the largest lots in Monterra's inventory with the smallest being 1.9 acres. This place is nature extreme!
OCR will be contacting each owner this January to arrange title transfer. 

Happy New Year.
