Charlotte fell in love with PV on her first trip in 2008. She recently moved from Portland, Maine with her husband, John, and dog, Riley. They sold their jewelry company, CHART metalworks, and started to life the life they dreamed of. Charlotte and John run a vacation rental business here in PV, Riley & Co. When they are not busy helping visitors find a rental, they can be found out and about with Riley. Charlotte loves to try new restaurants, go to the beach and make jewelry in her spare time – which, thankfully, is more abundant here in paradise.
After chasing the corporate life and wanting to slow things down a bit, Darren and his wife, Brooke, decided the time was right to move to PV from Atlanta, Georgia. They sold their home and belongings, packed up their car with their one and a half year old son, Wyatt, and their dog, Harper, and headed to Mexico. Darren started his own IT consulting company, building and maintaining websites for a list of clients. Darren’s office overlooks Banderas Bay, but the best part is that he gets to be with his family and experience life in PV.
