About the owner: Originally Mac is from Texas and Sharon is from New Jersey. We met on the island of Andros in the Bahamas, and fell in love 'underwater' in the blue seas. That was many years ago and we've since traveled the world, and have found our home here in beautiful Costa Rica.
Having lived for some years in Bali Indonesia, we were enchanted by the feel and beauty of the island, and have tried to bring a taste of that to our home here. Casa Rica in fact was built in Bali and transported here to Costa Rica.
The Costa Rica lifestyle is laid back and the locals are friendly and welcoming. We love the remoteness and incredible scenery, plus the eclectic community Ojochal has to offer. Really great restaurants too!
Casa Rica, Casa Bambu and Palm Spa are a dream come true for us. We enjoy spending our time doing projects on the property, making it a more enjoyable place to spend our time and share with travelers.
