I am the developer of The Oaks and still have 5 condos available for vacation rentals, all with the best location around our largest of three pools. I found Costa Rica eight years ago and love it, especially the laid back sunny area where we live near Tamarindo. Key word, near. I married Roxana, my Tica wife, a little over a year ago, have two great Rhodesian Ridgeback dogs and in previous lives have been a lawyer and banker. From Richmond, VA, Miami and Southern California, "retired" in Costa Rica.
