Additional Location Information

about the home: David Smythe is a professor at the Culinary Institute of America, and planning for retirement in several years.....both David & Justine have traveled to many places in the world over the past four decades, and when choosing the best place for retirement, it was clear that the Montezuma area in the southern tip of the Nicoya Peninsula..having been to Costa Rica multiple times, it was easy to choose this location because it retains much of the charm of this country lost now in other regions that have become overpopulated. The only way to access the tip of the Nicoya Peninsula is via the Puntarenas ferry, then by dirt roads to paradise, still undeveloped, and populated by a mixture of ticos and expats, all living together in harmony close to the land. Many of the foreigners who have moved here over the past three decades have started businesses, so there are plenty of high quality shops and restaurants, surprising for the remote location.

Casa Smythe was chosen as the ideal retirement home due to the amazing authentic spacious home surrounded by nature, on the top of the mountain in Las Delicias....from there its only a short drive down the mountain, to the beaches, villages, nature preserves, and more...The Smythe family has taken care to fully restore the home, paying special attention to the kitchen, all new appliances, big fridge with ice maker, washer and dryer, and all stainless steel cookware....Smythe family loves to cook, and if you love to cook too, this is the home for you.....the kitchen looks out onto the outstanding views, the generous veranda (patio around home) includes a dining area and plenty of hammocks for siesta time...very large bedrooms with vaulted ceilings, two double beds and two twin beds, makes for a comfortable abode for family or friends getaway....
