About the owner: Your hosts, Norm & Collie came to Costa Rica from the Seattle area in 2008. Collie retired from a nursing career, and Norm was, most recently, a computer network engineer, and prior to that owned and operated a custom cabinet shop in Seattle. While planning their retirement home, they decided on a separate cottage for visiting friends and relatives. As construction progressed, they decided to share their corner of paradise. This is not a large commercial development. You'll be the only guests on the 4 1/2 acre mountain top estate.
