About the Host, Edward And Julie
Hello, My name is Edward, my wife Julie and I have been enjoying Cahuita since 2004. We also have a home in Taos, NM., where we live when we are not in Costa Rica.
I was a general contractor by trade and Julie is in the hotel hospitality industry. We bought our Cahuita property in 2004. It had two ramshackel houses on it. We rebuilt one house and tore the other one down and replaced it with what is now the Casita. It has taken several years of two and three month working vacations to create our special place here in Cahuita. It was truly an adventure and we loved every minute of it. Come share what we have created.
We have had so much fun hosting our Costa Rica guests, we have decided to open our Taos, New Mexico property to guests also. So come and enjoy the land of Enchantment with us.
