Since buying our lot a few months ago we’ve started making some improvements. The fence and some tree planting came first. Now we’ve hooked into the community water, have planted some non-GMO corn and have begun building our caretaker’s house. Check out the progress!
Professional Surfer Holly Beck and her husband Kim Obermeyer buy lot #22 in Brisas Del Alma
Holly first came to Nicaragua in 2005 and bought land in 2007. She fell in love with the Boom right away and bought land nearby, but after making the decision to live in Nicaragua full time which led to a total life and relationship change, she moved down the coast to live where she worked at a wave better suited for beginner surfers. In the last few years she had to make the 25 min drive to surf the boom on and would often miss the best waves. She really wanted to buy a piece of land walking distance to her favorite wave in the world.
The answer was Brisas Del Alma. Holly and Kim liked that Brisas featured a reasonable number of lots of various sizes and prices, walking distance to their favorite surf spot but further away from the center of town, allowing easy access to surf and a quieter existence with more privacy. They chose a corner lot in Phase 1 with underground water already installed.
They plan to start construction on a caretaker’s house during the rainy season and have already begun designing a main house that they’ll use for part time living and rental income.
