My name is Olivier Minvielle, Mahana Pearl’s CEO. I am originally from France but grew up on an island in tropical, lush French Polynesia.
My professional background covers a wide genre of construction experience from restoring a 600 year old Basque stone home to constructing bungalows over lagoons in Tahiti to traditional Mexican palapas to brick and mortar homes along the Nayarit Riviera of Mexico before coming to the Costa Ballena, Costa Rica.
I have a passion for creating and designing homes in harmony with nature, striving to incorporate the natural surroundings to create elegant and comfortable living spaces in symbiosis with the environment.
Mahana Pearl began in 2007 as a business for exterior design and construction of residential and commercial projects including custom ironwork, furniture, cabinetry, pools, and decks. In time the company grew and began to design homes and condominiums, evolving into a full grown construction company. Our company stands out for it’s ability to offer a large range of exclusive designs and construction expertise.
We specialize in problem solving with an esthetic flair while maintaining the integrity of the client’s goals, and with great consideration to the restrictions of the natural environment.
