Manager info

Year Purchased: 1996

About: The original developers of this community had the vision to protect the ocean and environment, build green walls, bio-filtration septic gardens and keep it small with 50% common space, large community pool, trails and stairs to the beach (40) for privacy and pollution control.

Why Platanitos:
This incredible property was unique in its fabulous features, having ocean on both sides, we developed it with a security wall and gatehouse. It is truly a spectacular resort built with vision and love. Our villa is an artist dream, creative and comfortable.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
We got to choose the best lot, so Villa Exotica is the place to be sitting right above the surf break and next to the stairs to the beach, it is private and secure, simple but elegant. We built the giant swimming pool around the existing landscape to protect the Giant Tree and beyond.
