              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About the owner: Villa Tortuga has been a dream of ours since we first got married. Well, at least the idea of owning property within close proximity of the ocean was. Being from the landlocked state of Oklahoma, our visits to the beach came in the form of family vacations, most often to Florida or Mexico. In 2011 our family decided to take our Christmas trip to Costa Rica. Immediately we fell in love with the nature, the culture, and the people. Costa Rica is unlike any place in the world. For us, it was just developed enough to be comfortable, but untouched enough to remain a idillic paradise. After 3 years of Christmas vacations spent in Manuel Antonio, our family decided to take the plunge and buy property on our favorite street! We are taking every measure possible to make this home feel like a dream vacation home, and we hope that your family will enjoy it as much as ours does!

              Why the Owner Chose Manuel Antonio:
              Villa Tortuga has undergone quite the facelift. While it wasn't the prettiest one on the block, we saw the potential in her. Her views are unmatched by any house on the same street. Not only that, but she is located right next door to our best friends, so it was a perfect fit for our family. In July 2014, we will be unveiling the brand new, fully renovated Villa Tortuga. Every tile, every wall, every faucet and fixture has been replaced. And while she maintains her glorious spot high upon the hill (her best feature), that's about all that remains of the former Villa. She's quite the looker now!

              The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
              You can see the ocean from almost everyone room in the house. The house has been engineered for plenty of privacy, so while there are neighbors close by, you will feel like you are in your own private paradise.
