+ Owner's Story

I decided to retire to Costa Rica after 25 years working in academia in Boston, MA. I thought the Beaches of Nosara would be a good option for me because of its large expat community and its strong commitment to environmental preservation. On my first visit to the area around 10 years ago, I bought property in Playa Pelada. I chose this property because it was within walking distance to a beautiful beach and at the end of a dead-end street. It is a peaceful setting that affords privacy without being isolated.

I asked Guillermo Garita, an architect based in New York City and San Jose, CR, to design a house that blended its interior spaces with its exterior surroundings. I wanted the house to be filled with fresh air and natural light, and a modern design with lots of sliding glass doors accomplished this best. No matter where you are located in the house, you are surrounded by the sights and sounds of nature.

Having grown up in a mid-century modern home characterized by hard, cold surfaces, it was important to me that the house have a warm feeling. We introduced warmth by incorporating beautiful tropical woods into the structure of the house. The sliding doors are framed with reclaimed Brazilian rosewood, the kitchen cabinets are solid pochote, and the upstairs flooring is teak. The custom furniture in the house was designed by the architect using the same rosewood that frames the sliders.

I love the feel of the house, and it will be hard to leave it. The neighborhood of residential homes, small hotels, and restaurants, is quiet and friendly, and I will truly miss the people who make Nosara such a special place to live. This has been home to me and my dogs for the past six years, but circumstances change, and changed circumstances now draw me back to the United States.
