History of the house

Both my landscape architect husband and my backgrounds were strongly influenced by beauty, art, and high quality craftsmanship. I grew up being privileged enough to travel around the world while staying in fabulous places. We fell in love with the natural beauty of Costa Rica the first time we saw it. Finding this spot with its location and views was a dream come true. We wanted to create a legacy of a beautiful restorative place where family and friends can truly retreat.
