Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I built traditional houses to sell in Massachusetts when I was young. I wanted to build a home that was unique and special. Costa Rica with its beautiful hardwoods seemed the place to do it . My wife wanted a beach house so we bought a small house with an open permit and transformed it. It was built with care and love for my family. We have enjoyed it immensely and we hope you will also!

Why the Owner Chose Manzanillo, Limon Province, Costa Rica:
The Caribbean coast of Costa Rica is less developed and not as heavily traveled as the Pacific coast. It is lush, verdant tropical rainforest with amazing creatures on sea and land. It is laid back and a great place to relax and unwind.
