Name: Marie Swenor
Tell us about your family: I have 5 children back home in Canada. I am married and living with my husband in Playa Hermosa, Guanacaste. We got married here in Playa Hermosa on the beach at Bosque Del Mar Oct 30 2021 during the height of Covid 19. We had 8 of our closest friends at our wedding.
Where are you from: Waterdown Ontario Canada
Where do you currently live in Costa Rica: I am currently living in Playa Hermosa Guanacaste. My husband and I purchased our home in 2018. We purchased our home here to get away from the cold and the snow. At the time of purchased we had both retired from our jobs in Canada
Do you work and if so... tell us about it: I am the owner of MS Rattan. My business is a custom Costa Rican Furniture business ( both woods and rattans) specializing in real rattan furniture. My company will replicate any design you find on the internet you like for either indoor or outdoor furniture. We design and construct the furniture to your specific dimensions. We also provide custom upholstery with many different selections of colors and fabrics for your cushions.
Do you Volunteer?: I have volunteered since purchasing my home with Karol Allard who has founded Salva de Monos here in Playa Hermosa.
Do you have any pets? I have a dog named Sunny. She followed my daughter home one day from the beach. We opened the gate, she walked right in and made herself at home. She was a beach dog we rescued and we have had her for 4 years now. She is the best dog ever!!!
Do you have any hobbies?: My hobbies, swimming in my pool, swimming at the beach, relaxing in the sun , cooking lots of cooking, and enjoying a glass of wine with my husband. When I was working back in Canada, the last 3 years of working, I would leave my house everyday at 6:30am and most days not return home until 9:30pm at night. I had only one day a week off, that was Sunday. Life is now about Pura Vida!
What are your favorite restaurants in the area?: My favorite restaurants here in Playa Hermosa are El Valero, the upstairs restaurant at Bosque del Mar hotel, and Hacienda Blue in Playa Panama.
What is your favorite watering hole & drink?: My favorite watering hole is the Hotel El Valero and my favorite drink is white wine with a glass of ice on the side. The staff are the best ever! And the BEST SUNSETS are seen here!!!
What is your favorite beach?: My favorite beach is any beach we are headed to. Love them all. Each one offers picturesque views and sunsets!
What is one of your favorite things to do?: My most favorite place to visit on a Sunday afternoon is The Dive Bar located at the Four Seasons resort. Great food, wonderful service and I get to sit there alongside my husband and dream about owning a multi million dollar yacht
Do you have a favorite memory?: I have so many memories, too many to mention. However, the best memories are the parties we have thrown at our house. For birthdays, for Christmas, for people leaving Costa Rica. I have made so many wonderful friends both gringo and tico. Enfact my Tico family are very dear to my heart!
Tell us something most people don't know about you?: LOL I am an open book !!! no secrets here. I was in sales back home in Canada and anyone in sales well we all love to talk. I am not really good at keeping secrets about myself. I believe in the motto "take me for who I am or not all!"
