WHAT IS A FINCA AND WHAT IS THE STORY?
Finca means country house. Our Finca used to be a horse ranch called Crazy Horse Ranch. Over the years a lot of houses and apartments had been built in the surrounding areas which meant the ranch was no longer in the country side and horses were no longer allowed on the land. It was put up for sale and in the year 2000 a Norwegian guy called Arne Berg bought it and turned it into a retreat and holiday resort. After some years it was closed down and the buildings were rented out to an international school. The school was open for a few years, but it ended up being a scam with a lot of unpaid bills. The Finca was then left derelict for some years and was completely destroyed by vandalism.
In 2009 Peter & Jane were staying in the area spending some time with the family. They found the Finca by accident and made an agreement with the Norwegian owners to move in for a few months to prevent any more vandalism and to help clean up the place. The entrepreneur mindset of Peter & Jane created lots of new ideas of what the place could become... So they made a rent to buy agreement, and started building a business and reforming the place. It was a very long, hard journey, working 24/7 to improve the Finca step by step.
In 2020 Peter & Jane finally bought the place with the help of an investor group of 20 individuals. We are proud to say that the Finca as a hotel is now very well established and that 80% of our guests choose to return year after year.
