              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2012

              About the owner: I have been happily married for the past 13 years. My loving wife Joan and I have one child named Charlie who is now 13 years old. I was in Commercial Video Post Production business around 28 years, I have temporarily resigned from my business so I could pursue other ventures. My future endeavors include helping better our environment, volunteer for my community and possibly get involved in health care as well as spending more time with my family. I have been on the east coast, in and around NYC my entire life. 7 years ago we went on a vacation to Costa Rica's Gulf of Papagayo, we loved it so much we purchased a condo a month later. Vista Bahia condominium/hotel (A Monarch Resort Property)of Playa Panama was a perfect place for us because of the location to and from the airport and the privacy it offers. After vacationing in this area for years we found & bought this Condo at Sol Y Mar in Playa Hermosa. It was spectacular and larger and more luxurious then the first condo we bought. We vacation here at least twice a year. I am considering moving down to Costa Rica someday, hopefully sooner than later. I love fishing, working with my hands and many other hobbies.

              Why the Owner Chose Playa Hermosa:
              I chose this area because this unit is directly on the beautiful, uncrowded beach of the Pacific: it is ALSO poolside with a very short walk of 100 feet directly to the beach and ocean. The condo is the only one like it, this magnificent, luxurious unit has plenty of space for large families. It was built with incredible detail. I have always been a beach person and love to fish. There is everything and nothing to do here, the choice is yours.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              This is a new and modern home, a rarity on the beach in this small oceanside community of Playa Hermosa. Staying at Sol Y Mar is fun, relaxing and refreshing, and only a short distance from rafting, hot springs, mud baths, repelling and canopy tours through the tops of rain forest trees. A short distance from local surfing spots! Even the restaurants around the area are phenomenal! Our unit is on the bottom floor which is perfect for those who have mobilities issues.
