 Fabulous Vacation Rental...Welcome  Home!

Who Are These Guys?

Your Hosts:

Marty & Nita Kemsley.

Marty is a LEED Accredited Architect and Nita is a Retired Shop Owner and designer. Although we have traveled the world over, in our 33 years of marriage, when we came to Costa Rica, as Tourists & Nature Lovers, we knew we had found our bliss. So in 2006,  we purchased a small corridor of Rain Forest land in the middle of a 6000 acre cattle farm, with an eye toward protecting the remaining natural habitat, and creating an eco-friendly sustainable retirement lifestyle for ourselves.

In turn, we also decided we wanted to share the incredible beauty of Costa Rica, with other nature lovers and so we set about building a small Eco friendly B&B business, to occupy us throughout our golden years.

Your booking will bring us one step closer to fulfilling our Rain Forest Dream.
