Rebecca Rowntree

Rebecca Rowntree is a dedicated third-generation realtor with a deep-seated passion for real estate, a legacy passed down from her Mother and Grandfather. As a Certified Costa Rica Realtor (CCCBR), Rebecca has honed her expertise in the intricate world of luxury property transactions, specializing in the vibrant Costa Ballena region.

Rebecca brings a wealth of skills to her real estate career, cultivated during a high-level retail career where she masterfully negotiated and executed sales contracts ranging from tens-of-thousands to tens-of-millions. Her hallmark traits of action, authenticity, and accountability consistently shine through in every relationship and transaction, a fact well-documented by the glowing feedback from her valued clients.

Beyond her professional accolades, Rebecca possesses a unique and comprehensive understanding of the real estate landscape. She has personally navigated the purchase of land, overseen the construction of income properties, and successfully developed businesses within the industry. Fluent in both English and Spanish, she leverages her linguistic proficiency to effectively bridge communication gaps and cater to the diverse needs of her international clientele, notably hailing from various European countries.

Rebecca’s journey to Costa Rica is a testament to her pursuit of a higher quality of life. After enduring the demands of a high-level corporate career and lengthy daily commutes for over two decades, she yearned for a more balanced and health-focused lifestyle. Her life-changing decision to relocate to Costa Rica in 2014 followed a transformative visit to the country in 2011. She embarked on a remarkable journey, shedding her lifelong possessions, home, and vehicles, and embracing a fresh start in Costa Rica.

Rebecca’s chosen haven is Ojochal, nestled in the picturesque south Pacific region of Costa Rica, commonly referred to as the Costa Ballena or “whale coast.” This area is renowned for its unspoiled natural beauty, where mountains meet the sea, offering a lesser populated and richly biodiverse environment. It’s a region that caters to her love of fine dining, boasting a fantastic array of top-quality restaurants that she, as a self-proclaimed foodie, thoroughly enjoys.

In addition to her real estate pursuits, Rebecca’s entrepreneurial spirit led her to realize a lifelong dream of owning a boutique hotel. This investment continues to flourish under the capable management of a delightful couple, extending warm hospitality to guests from around the globe. This venture allows Rebecca to wholeheartedly focus on her primary passion—serving her clients in the real estate realm.

Rebecca firmly believes that you too can achieve the lifestyle you’ve dreamed of.

Testimonials by Rebecca’s Clients

“Rebecca was super responsive, thoughtful, efficient, knowledgeable…”

We’re beyond impressed with the professionalism of the Osa Tropical Properties team – especially our awesome agent, Rebecca Rowntree.

We have known Rebecca professionally for years, so the decision to give her our exclusive listing was an easy one. From the first inquiry we made with her about listing our home, Rebecca was super responsive, thoughtful, efficient, knowledgeable and confident in the information she was providing, which helped us in making decisions every step of the way. The market research she did to price our home was right on point, and resulted in us accepting an offer in just under 6 weeks!

A huge thank you to Rebecca for all your expert advice and reassurance through what could have been a very stressful experience.

“Rebecca went above and beyond her job description”

After reading online reviews of realtors in the Osa area, we contacted Rebecca Rowntree to help us find a home near Uvita. We cannot recommend her highly enough. Rebecca was responsive, professional, kind, and very knowledgeable about real estate surrounding Bahia Ballena. Furthermore, Rebecca went above and beyond her job description, as she helped answer questions about ANYTHING having to do with living in Costa Rica. We closed on a home in Uvita last week. We are thrilled with our new residence, and we look forward to a lifelong friendship with Rebecca. Win-win 🙂

“She made a very intimidating process seem relatively simple”

Rebecca Rowntree handled our house purchase for us in July completely remotely. We had previously met Rebecca when we were vacationing in Ojochal in December 2019 and decided to look at some properties. She made quite an impression on us and was the first person we went to when we decided to take the plunge from back home in Canada this past spring! Rebecca “toured” us through a few properties using Zoom and helped us find our “starter house” in Ojochal. She made a very intimidating process seem relatively simple! Rebecca is honest and hardworking. Even though we were buying a house at the lower end of the market, Rebecca had all the time in the world for us and answered all of our concerns and questions promptly. You can’t go wrong dealing with Rebecca.

“Rebecca cares passionately about her job and her clients”

We can’t speak highly enough of Rebecca as our real estate agent. Her professionalism, knowledge, honesty, integrity and work ethic made what could have been a stressful and difficult process as seamless as could be. We had met with several realtors prior to choosing to work with Rebecca. From the very first meeting we knew she was the right person for us. Unlike others, she had done her homework and came prepared with comps, pricing and other really helpful suggestions to maximize the sale of our house. Not just our realtor, she was our partner in the sales process. Her responsiveness and communication not only helped with the logistics of the sales process, but also made us feel comfortable and secure. Rebecca cares passionately about her job and her clients and was absolutely wonderful to work with. Thank you Rebecca!

“We placed our faith in Rebecca and were rewarded”

Rebecca, you were highly, and correctly, recommended as a great agent.  We placed our faith in you and were “rewarded”.  You sold our dream villa to a couple who sounds as if they will also treasure it.  Thanks for finding the right buyers and sticking with us through this odyssey!   We appreciate all you have done.

“The sale of my property with Rebecca was an easy no stress experience”

The sale of my property with Rebecca was an easy no stress experience and at rocket speed! She took care of everything that mattered and went out of her way to make things easy breezy for everyone involved. So thankful!

Annie C.


“Tenacious with a lot of character”

I thank you, Rebecca, for all the efforts done for this memorable sale.  I know you worked very hard for this sale since you took the listing, and you very quickly had the right buyer. It’s not important to bring dozens of buyers….one is enough but the right one!  You are tenacious with a lot of character and I guess this is the key to your success.  I will warmly recommend you to my friends in Costa Rica if they want to sell their property.  Wishing you all the best for your future sales and a long life full of success and health in Costa Rica.



“Took really great care of us even while we were back in the US”

We purchased our vacation home in Costa Rica with the help of Rebecca Rowntree. She answered all our questions and made the whole experience a pleasant one. Rebecca was available every time we needed her, was professional and knowledgeable and took really great care of us even while we were back in the US. Even after the sale, she has helped us adjust to Costa Rican life and we consider her a treasured friend. We would definitely recommend her to anyone who wants to live PURA VIDA! Thank You Rebecca!
