Manager info

Year Purchased: 2005

About: Hi there, I was born and raised in Hamburg, Germany, emigrated to New York, and that's where I live. I like Costa Rica and use my house for frequent visits.

Why Heredia:
My house, which was built in 2005, is conveniently located. Bus connection to virtually all of Costa Rica is available within a few minute-walk. The weather in Atenas, a 20-minute drive west, was quoted by National Geographic the second best in the world. Even in the rainy season one can usually enjoy a few sun-filled hours on the backyard swing under the canapé.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I love the convenience, a new upscale supermarket up the block, Papa John's Pizza, the gated community with friendly guards. Never have to worry about the safety of my house. Restaurants are within walking area. The new FRESH MARKET offers a variety of freshly baked goods every morning. It also has a low-fee ATM. An AUTOMERCADO, famous for its international foods, is in construction, planned to open in December 2014.
