I moved to Costa Rica and began Casa Tranquila in April 2006. After years as a National Executive with prestige fashion corporations (Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel, Oscar de la Renta), it was, at 50, time to begin a new stage in my life that did not include the challenges of corporate work. Yet I still wanted to integrate my 20 years' experience within the luxury industry into a new chapter.
Also, many real estate opportunities in Palm Beach, Florida provided my insight for remodeling normal houses into beautiful homes. I simply “translated” that awareness into Spanish, and transformed Casa Tranquila into a Tropical Villa that provides both comfort and luxury, simultaneously.
I feel I have found the perfect blend of my experiences. And in 2012, I added the extraordinary luxury home, Villas del Sol, to my hosting enjoyment.
Sombra (my Border Collie) and I prefer a sense of home life, which does not require an abundance of travel. So we decided to create our ideal haven in this pristine location to encourage "The World" to travel to us. Thus, she, Nathan, Jessica, Juan and I invite you to come experience Casa Tranquila as our Guests . . . certain that you will leave as our Friend.

We were 2 families (4 people in one, 2 in another) traveling together, and
this was a perfect place for us. There was plenty of room and plenty to do--
tour of the national park, whitewater rafting, zipline tour, etc. Donald could
not have been more helpful in providing information and arranging

After my vacation plans fell through last summer, I had the great fortune to be directed by a friend to Villa del Sol. It was so much better than what I had originally planned.
The house itself is amazing. It's open and breezy, but has aC if needed. Plenty of room and looks like it could be the setting for a movie. Balconies on each level were perfect for the breakfasts of fresh fruit and juices…
