Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Holly Musselman and Robert Ross moved to Montanita in 2011 from Los Angeles, California looking for a simpler life. In Los Angeles, Holly spent her time working in post-production for TV commercials and Robert in the Financial Services industry. Both, having traveled extensively around the world, decided that Montanita provided the perfect balance of a warm climate, hammocka lifestyle and incredible surf. Today, Holly spends most of her days relaxing on the beach or taking care of our newborn son Maddox, horses, dogs and cats while Robert drives the coast with locals and visitors in search of perfect waves. We are excited to announce we have a new addition to the family in April 2013, see the most recent pictures below!! Moving to Montanita is a dream come true for us and we are looking forward to sharing our excitement and lives with visitors to Montanita Estates!
