Joost Hauwert founded Hidden Coast Realty in Tamarindo, Guanacaste in 2000. His goal was to find the best deals for his clients, many of whom were from abroad, and to help them navigate the challenges of buying property in a foreign country.

In 2006, the office in Puerto Coyote was opened, run by Joost’s long-time friend, broker Hans Bakker.

Puerto Coyote is a pristine, more remote area with secluded beaches and beautiful mountain ranges, located further south on the Nicoya Peninsula.
In 2011 the Tamarindo office was moved to a more central location in town at the Plaza Tamarindo building across from Pacific Park.

In 2017 Hidden Coast Realty started to expand towards the area of San Juanillo , Nosara, Marbella and Ostional with Steve Vonder Haar as the representative agent.
