We, the owners, are Kim and Melanie Norman, who sometimes live in Fayetteville, in Garden View Flat and most of the time live in Costa Rica in Cabo Matapalo of the Osa Peninsula. We love living in the rainforest and we offer a guest house called Casa Dos Rios in Costa Rica. Our residency in Fayetteville goes all the way back to 1974 when I, Melanie, moved from my home state of Louisiana with my sister, Liz. It is her number you will reach when you call for more information. She has been a Coldwell Banker agent, and before that, an agent in my real estate company in Fayetteville, for more than eight years. I used to own and run Seven Hills Realty in Fayetteville (I was a broker for 30 years). Now I am a broker for Prime Real Estate in Fayetteville, AR, and also do some real estate activities when on the Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica.
Kim, a builder, is now retired from building, but occasionally does some small projects and property investing for flipping. When on the Osa, Kim and I offer sailing tours on our 36 ft. Columbia sail boat, named Sorrento.
I love gardening, cooking, water color art, yoga and dance. We enjoy living in the tropics, but will always return to our precious community and friends in NW Arkansas. It is truly a special place! We call it our North American rainforest.
GVF P.S.: most of the art on the walls of the apartment were done by Liz or I. We hope you like it.
CDR P.S.: We have one of the best locations of Cabo Matapalo, for convenience, fresh water river mouth, and the local eclectic gathering place, right down our lane, called Buena Esperenza. (Martina's Bar-Restaurant).
We pride ourselves with a high level of service, as, we love the hospitality business and living on site (in a manager house) allows us to meet and enjoy people from all over the globe!
