The neighborhood is called High Timbers and The Zen Retreat reflects the name of the neighborhood as the property is tree lined and very shady, offering loads of privacy. The entire neighborhood is full of mature trees and is in essence a private Cul-De-Sac community. There are only 2 entrances to the neighborhood and it is ALWAYS very quiet. If you have children, rest easy knowing that this is a very safe spot for them to play and be kids. The neighbors are great...Check out my neighbor Bob across the street, he has the most quirkiest back yard you have ever seen. It has been featured on numerous TV shows nationally. Just say hi...he is super friendly.

I am always looking for a great meal, great drink, and great company and will do my best to make that happen. I used to work in the food industry as a Chef and Culinologist (I helped companies create the flavor portion to their products) and used to travel extensively for work. Since all things culinary have been a huge part of my life, I started an online-based dining and socializing group called Good Eats and Meets that is now in 6 cities in the US and is the largest group of its kind in the US. I have a daughter in college and a son living in Miami. My parents are Croatian and I am also fluent in Spanish and Croatian. I spend my time split between the US and Croatia as I have a boutique travel company called Captivating Croatia, where we take guests on an intimate food and wine-based tours of Croatia. As well as Sights and Bites, which is a Foodie Walking Tour of Dubrovnik.
