Ralph and Renda Hewitt
Ralph and Renda lived in Waxahachie, Texas where they were married in 1995. Renda was in real estate sales and they owned a construction company and Ralph had a mediation practice. Needless to say, the phones were ringing day and night. Ralph said enough (to himself of course) and started researching places to go by the sea that was nice and inexpensive. He is a sailor at heart and started there first. Finding Pelican Eyes sailing tours right here in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua. He had several conversations with the owner of the boat and he said “come on down” weather is 85-95 degrees all year round with a cool easterly breeze and no bugs! Well Ralph thought that sounds like a good place to visit! So they did…
Two weeks in May of 2003 turned out to be the beginning of a lifetime dream for both of them, living by the ocean and enjoying paradise at the same time. In early 2005 construction began on Park Avenue Villas Hotel and was opened for business in Sept 2006. There are a lot of stories in between! Ralph and Renda enjoy sitting on their deck in the evenings, talking to the hotel guests and toasting the sunset. Many of their north American friends come and go at different times of the year.
Truly, in San Juan del Sur, there are “No Bad Days”!
