We are Natalya and Victor. Two retired Canadians who built their dream home in Costa Rica. We have been living in Costa Rica for the past 7 years, loving and appreciating every day spent in this amazing place. It is a gorgeous country with friendly people, moderate climate and great opportunities for both relaxation and adventure. We have four grown children living in Canada, US and Argentina and we built a house where everyone can come together and enjoy themselves. When the kids are too busy to visit we are happy to share this beautiful place with you .
Here in Costa Rica we have 3 cats and 2 dogs. They live in the house but do not enter bedrooms. However, if you have a strong cat allergy this is something to consider.
Our dogs are very big but very friendly. They will bark and protect the house, but are not in any-way aggressive to our house-guests. They would like nothing more than another human friend to play with and to tag-along with on the jungle hike behind our villa.
