Darrell and Frankie are an engaged couple that live in the Marietta, Georgia area. Each of them has children who have grown up and gone off to school or work, so now it's just the two of them. Darrell works long hours while Frankie deals with a hectic commute to the office, so they'd like to have a place where they can get away and relax. They chose Costa Rica as the location for their vacation home after the couple went there on a trip and fell in love with a small, tranquil area called Playa Samara. They're looking for a low maintenance home with a large kitchen that is located near the beach. Darrell would also like to be sure that he is looking at places that are desirable to the locals that fall within their $600,000 budget because the home is also an investment property. Their real estate agent, Ryan Tuttle will show them the wide range of properties they can choose from in Costa Rica.
