Perfect apartment for one, couple or small family. Very close to restaurants, bars, information offices, supermarkets and other services, but far from the noise. Some free attractions at less than 10 minutes walking. The apartment has a Queen bed, a sofa, a small table for 4 and a small but well equipped kitchen. There is a parking space inside the property. There is also a big balcony around the apartment with a couple of reclinable chairs and a small table.
The apartment is in a great location. Close to the center of town where most service and goods are, but away enough from the noise. The neighbourhood is calm and safe, surrounded by may patches of forest. Through the main windows you can see the middle and top part of the trees right next to it, so you get a good chance of watching some birds and other animals.
The neighbourhood is very quiet. There are only a few neighbours and they are not very close to us. Most of the neighbourhood is surrounded by patches of forest. You can safely go on a walk around and get to know a little about how we live. Close to us there is the soccer field, primary and high schools, fire station, small businesses, and other essential services that keep the town running.
  • Diego y su familia son excelentes anfitriones, nos esperaron con un detalle increíble para la merienda. El departamento tiene una vista increíble y es muy cómodo y con detalles de muy buen gusto. Nos sentimos muy cómodos en nuestra estadía. 100% recomendable.

  • What a great spot! We loved our stay at Diegos place!

    Jamie2018-05-04T00:00:00Z
  • Diego's place is clean and we found the residents at the property helpful and friendly. The big picture window is beautiful and we found the studio comfortable and stylish. The roads surrounding the house are rough and somewhat steep, but we had no trouble getting in and out.

  • Our stay at the Bird Paradise Apartment was wonderful! The apartment was clean and accurate to what was shown in the photos. Diego was also very friendly and responsive to messages/questions. We had a great time in Monteverde!

    Daniel2018-05-15T00:00:00Z
  • Diego's communication was always prompt, clear, and helpful before and throughout our visit. He even communicated with our tour company to pick us up at the airbnb instead of us having to walk to the closest hotel for pick up which he kindly suggested on his own. Diego took us to the amazing hollow trees and a beautiful spot for the sunset. He also gave us great advice and suggestions that we used and saw through the rest of our trip. Everything was as advertised and exceeded our expectations. Close to everything in town too. I would stay here again and recommend to others!

  • The stay at Diego's place was more than a wonderful experience. His "Edward Cullen (Twilight)" alike apartment was amazing. The impression is even better in reality than on the pictures. The place is very modern, nicely designed, the kitchen has everything you might need and the entire apartment is very clean. The morning view through the glass wall which you have right from the bed is stunning. The WiFi at Diego's place was working perfectly opposed to some other places in Costa Rica. The location of the apartment is very convenient few minutes drive to the city center and all the shops, restaurants, etc. but at the same time it is far enough from city crowd and loud streets surrounded by beautiful nature. Diego was a very kind and helpful host. He showed us the way to his apartment from the city center, gave us many useful tips for the vacation. He also surprised us with a small welcoming gift-cake and showed us the ficus trees. If you are staying in Monteverde, this apartment is a "must" and if you didn't put Monteverde in your vacation schedule, think one more time about it. (; Monteverde will give you many enjoyable moments. I can highly recommend to stay at Diego's place.

  • Out of all the airbnbs, hotels, and hostels I've ever stayed in, this was absolutely the best place I've ever experienced. The room is breathtaking- you wake up every morning to a wall of windows with the sun lighting up the cloud forest and an occasional light rain coming down. It's clean, modern, and has everything you need to cook amazing meals day after day. You can tell that Diego, the host, put so much thought into every detail of the place. And that's what makes it feel like home: how much care Diego puts into your stay. We arrived at the center of town, and he provided us a ride to his place. During our stay, he offered to take us to a beautiful vista to see the sunset. During our departure, after the shuttle company made an error in our booking, he drove us across town to make sure we got our ride to Manuel Antonio. I would come back to this place in a heartbeat, and give Diego my highest recommendation as a host.

    Javier2017-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • Diegos apartment was very clean and comfortable! The distance to the city center is short. Really easy check-in and check-out and great communication. We highly recommend this apartment! Pura vida!

The B&B is laid out in the style of a family house and guests are encouraged to treat it as their home. The building was in fact once the owner\'s family home which gave inspiration to this ¨Tica House¨ designed hotel. The B&B is situated a 5 minute walk from the town centre of Santa Elena, but is far enough away for it to be quiet and have more rural surroundings. This is the perfect option for those who crave the quiet side of the countryside but who require the amenities provided in a town. Facilities... Camino Verde B&B comprises private rooms which sleep 2 to 4 guests. Four of the rooms have shared bathroom facilities and the rest are en suite. All prices include breakfast and tax. Breakfast is free for all guests and is served from 6:30am until 8:30 am.

Real coffee and orange juice is also available for every guest. Check-out time is 11 am but guests are welcome to use the communal areas all day if they have a late bus to catch. Camino Verde also offers a luggage storage service. The friendly staff on reception are also experienced tour agents so can give out impartial advice on all the local companies. Furthermore they can share their countrywide knowledge of Costa Rica and organize any ongoing travel. Upon arrival at the hotel they give all guests a map of Monteverde and mark out all the different tours and activities that various companies offer in the area. This way guests learn about what is available to them and can suss out how long they might like to stay for. If required they can create "pick and mix" packages of various activities to suit each individual. Please let us know if you need any help on getting to Monteverde! We can help you arrange a Shuttle or a Taxi Boat Taxi if your coming from Arenal, For example, the taxi boat taxi is $25 a person and Shuttle from San Jose to Monteverde is $45 p.p Also, Just to let you know, there are a lot of fun things to to here, and since we have an Info-Center we can help you arrange anyth ing with great discounts! Prices you will find online will be higher, and availability wont be a problem, so there`s no need to book tours in advance. Let us know if you have any questions about the B&B or on things to do! Advice about arrival time. Check out at 11am Credit Card Facilities.
    The Monteverde Cloud forest is stunning, very green and you can very often see the quetzal =) . I also like the Zip Lines, Night hikes and the Hanging Bridges.
  • Had a super fantastic stay at Camino Verde. Jose was helpful in every way, from arranging transport to all of the tours, answering all of my many questions and just being friendly. The breakfast is incredible (make sure you have the pancakes!) and the rooms clean and comfortable. Will stay there again!

    Jennifer2012-07-10T00:00:00Z
  • El Camino Verde is a nice place to stay at and André and José were helpful and nice hosts. As soon as we arrived he reserved us the Skywalk Tour which is worth seeing. And the following morning we had a delicious breakfast we could choose from! Muchas gracias!

    Phi2012-11-21T00:00:00Z
  • I ended up staying an extra night because I liked it so much! Jose is an exceptional host and will do everything he can to help you. The breakfast was great, and the rooms very clean and comfortable.

    Gabrielle2015-05-16T00:00:00Z
  • Andres is a wonderful host who speaks good English, is very knowledgeable about the area (he grew up in the house that is now Camino Verde), and will do all he can to make things right for his guests. He referred us to a great wildlife guide, David, who provided us with the most sightings, including a quetzal, on a guided walk. Andres also told us about a local coffee house in Santa Elena with the best coffee in Costa Rica, locally grown and roasted. The rooms are very basic, clean, utilitarian...good for sleeping, not so much for hanging out. Our room had no windows, but being away from the road it was quiet. The common space, with the beautiful view of the mountain scenery, is the place to hang out. The breakfast was good. I especially liked the gallo pinto. I consider Camino Verde a very good value for the money and would go back when in the area of Monteverde.

    Peitsa2012-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice and hostel. Helpful receptionists, delicious breakfast. In walking distance of the bus terminal and the center of Santa Elena.

    Karin2013-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • There is not much on top of the mountain but this was a great place to stay for the price. Clean, simple, perfect. They were very helpful lining up tours that came and picked us up right from Camino Verde.

    Brian2015-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • Camino Verde is a great place, amongst all places available in Monteverde. Relaxed atmosphere, all amenities needed, great info and tour arrangement with the local minivan transports and places to visit. José at the desk is most helpful and friendly.

    Daniel2015-11-07T00:00:00Z
  • This place had a beautiful view, overlooking some of the mountains. The room had everything we needed. The staff were very accommodating as breakfast begins at 6:30am but we had to leave at 5:45am, so after putting in a request for an early breakfast the night before, they served us some food/beverages before we left in the morning. I really appreciate that! Thanks Jose, Erney, and Andres!

    If you are a nature lover who is also interested in a cultural experience, this is for you! Ask about our new organic garden project!
    We offer our cabina for up to 6 people, and studio apartment for 2, both hand-crafted with care and creativity, nestled against the forest above the creek. We hope that you enjoy the tranquility of our tiny neighborhood just outside of town and revel in its rich natural and cultural diversity. Your closest neighbors will include mostly the furred and feathered type, though we do have a family who live on the other side of the entry lane. Right from bed, you can be dazzled by the presence of frequent visitors at your window--our resident sloth, long-tailed manakin, squirrel cuckoo, blue-crowned motmot and more! If you forget your alarm clock, don't fret! Our neighbour's roosters will give you a wake-up call at the perfect moment for a birding walk in our back forest. If you are interested in human interaction, you are welcome to visit with any or all of the members of our family as we live just across the yard. Beth originally came from Canada to teach at one of the small, bilingual, alternative schools and found her heart home here in Monteverde. Manolo was born nearby, and is always interested in chatting about how he has seen the área change and how life has been as he dances through a life full of cultural challenges. You will hopefully automatically enjoy his background in construction but feel free to ask about his more newly found passion as a naturalist guide. Our 2 children are inevitably a product of our bicultural existance and weave artfully between both languages and cultures. Our 15 year old son Amaro would be happy to share any video gaming interest you might have... if you can pull him away from the screen...and our daughter Nati might be up the mountain for a visit, but now lives in the San Jose área. All in all, we are passionate about sharing their love for our community and the magic of our natural setting as well as making sure you feel at home in our home! Both homes are completely furnished with the major appliances, hot water, internet access and the extra bonus of artistic features like hand-painted tiles, hardwood floors, and local artwork. To rent the apartment or take advantage of a special price to rent both, see the listing Casa Libelula also under Monteverde Forest Hideaway as a 2 person accomodation.
    We live in a rural neighbourhood called Bajo Rodriguez in Los Llanos, just outside of the commercial center of Santa Elena. We consider our spot to be the ideal as we have an off the beaten track feel, yet quick and easy access to the amenities and activities. Santa Elena-Monteverde includes a multitude of smaller communities that lie the border between the provinces of Puntarenas and Guanacaste. We are situated on the top of a mountain in the Tilaran mountain range. From various places in the zone, there are breathtaking views of Arenal Volcano and the Gulf of Nicoya from afar. It is about a 3 hour drive as you wind your way up from the international highway, with spectacular views of the San Luis valley below along the route. You can travel here through Las Juntas or Sardinal. Escape the heat of the lowlands as you climb into our green mountain home! Monteverde is most famous for its cloud forest, left as a watershed by the original Costa Rican and Quaker residents. Visitors can enjoy a wide variety of attractions, including much for the ecologically minded tourist with options for both education and adventure. Enjoy a guided day or night tour of many trail systems with a local naturalist, visit the Butterfly Garden, Bat Museum, or Frog Pond, whiz through a zipline canopy tour, or search out local artists at their galleries. . Music lovers will want to keep an eye on the Monteverde Institute calendar for the concerts they sponser every once in a while, or check out the Saturday night square dance once a month at the Friends school. Latin dancing in Santa Elena is a more regular event and Manolo and I are usually happy to accompany you and share our love of this pasttime. Monteverde is truly the perfect site both for nature lovers and those interested in rich cultural diversity.
  • This was our second experience staying at Beth's Monteverde place, and we thoroughly enjoyed it again. The cabin the the woods is warm, well-equipped and right in the middle of birds and sloth country. Beth was there to meet us with goodies, advice and a warm 'Welcome Back!' We got good advice about outings, pizza, etc. Booked via email in advance, Manolo was available for a guided tour - highly recommended!! His tour combines scientific knowledge, local history and cultural aspects beyond what you would normally receive. Beth and Manolo are fantastic hosts for a trip to Monteverde - be sure to take advantage of their offer to assist.

    Sylvia2016-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Hello, Beth is absent , we were welcomed by Olman. The cabin is much smaller than we thought. Please note that the room in the basement is not included even if the precise ad 3 bedrooms . To get it, you have to pay extra. It a very clean.

    Nancy2016-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Beth and her family were very kind and accommodating, we wish we could have stayed there longer. The cabina was very cute and private. When we arrived Beth gave us all the info we needed and even had a binder full of information in the cabina for us to read. It told us where to eat, shop, and go for activities. If you are planning a trip to Costa Rica, Monte Verde is a must see!

    Christina2013-11-14T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I stayed at Beth's beautiful peaceful cabina for 3 nights during our first trip to Costa Rica. What a wonderful place! Charming, quiet, comfortable, and romantic. We especially loved the view of the rainforest through the large octogonal window in our bedroom. We were welcomed by Beth, who provided useful information about places to explore and eat. Her fresh-baked pumpkin bread was scrumptious, and provided great fuel during our many excursions. She also connected us with some great activities. A highlight of our visit to Monteverde was the trip she set up for us with Sandro, a quiet horseback ride with expansive views to relaxing picturesque hot springs/warm springs at the edge of a raging river. We also enjoyed the hikes in the various reserves nearby, the hummingbird garden at Monteverde, zip-lining, and just relaxing in the cabina and watching the wind and the bird life outside (saw a toucon and other birds right outside our window). This would also be a great place to come back with friends, as there were multiple bedrooms. It has a remote feeling to it, and yet is still just a few minutes drive from town (Santa Elena).

    Inna2015-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely time at Beth's and Manolo's Hideaway. Beth was incredibly welcoming and resourceful and knew everything about the area. She even spotted a sloth just outside of our place at night for us. The place has everything one could want and everything worked well. All in all a very pleasurable and relaxing stay. Highly recommended.

    Ludovic2015-04-09T00:00:00Z
  • Beth's home is an amazing spot for Monteverde adventures! I spent two nights at Beth's home with four other friends and the space was great! We loved how close it was to all the attractions in Monteverde and how easy it was to get to the house. We loved the space!

    Aleena2018-05-23T00:00:00Z
  • Monteverde Forest Hideaway is a lovely, remote place, where you can find rest nearby all Monteverde’s attractions, a warm welcome, birds and (sometimes) a sloth. The cabin is furnished with care and has lovely details.

    Isaak2018-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • Adorable hand made casita in the forest. It was fantastic and just what we needed! Wifi got a little fritzy but we didnt come for that we came for the culture, coffee and to relax with a good book. Beth and Monolo were fantastic hosts and so helpful booking all of our activities! I recommend the Don Juan Coffee/chocolate and sugar cane tour! Delicioso! Wish we could have had a few more days! Pura Vida!

  • Ever was a great host. The apartment is located very close to the town centre (less than 5mins walk) where there is a supermarket selling fresh bread. There are also plenty of shops, restaurants and bars. The apartment was clean and Ever left a big basket of eggs and a tub of coffee. I would recommend Ever’s place to anyone who is visiting Monteverde. Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve is a 10-15mins taxi ride. There was a friendly cat who greeted us everyday outside the apartment.. but it knew its boundaries and did not come in! :)

  • Clean and Good place for quick stay!

    Praveen2018-05-20T00:00:00Z
  • The place was well done,and within walking distance of town. The place was a little smaller than I expected, but still doable. Ever was a fantastic host. He answered all our questions quickly, helped arrange tours, had daily cleaning and laundry service available should we have needed it. He also owns a fabulous restaurant in town. Tico y Rico. Great food, good prices and great service. Would definitely stay again. The roads coming are not for the faint of heart. However I understand the government is working on paving to Route 1.

    Cheryl2018-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Easy to find, great location. Very clean. Great communication. Nothing fancy, but exactly what we needed for a good price.

  • Ever's place is great, very accurate description. Ever is very friendly and an excellent host. He stopped by to make sure we were comfortable and answered all our questions. Place is cozy, newly remodeled and modern. It's very comfortable for a couple. We had our son too. We highly recommend it and look forward to staying there again.

    Described as a Little Paradise in Monteverde. Secluded yet accessible The house is made of local wood and glass, light and spacious, with a wrap-around deck perfect for bird watching and listening to the sounds of the toucans and howler monkeys.
    Your own private home right in the Cloud forest open concept with private spaces perfect for a couple self sufficient and within walking distance of restaurants and stores, half way between Monteverde and Santa Elena Described as, "feels like a retreat, a little paradise." light, bright, cozy.
    The road up to the house is rocky and you need to have a 4 x4 wheel drive car with good clearance.
  • Our stay at cloud forest was magical. After a memorable drive from San Jose we arrived in monteverde and followed careful instructions to Tanya's amazing house.we were met within 5 minutes by her friends and a coatimundi who just happened to be strolling by!

    Tim2015-08-01T00:00:00Z
  • The house is just as you see on the pictures. Located in the middle of the woods and it feels like your own oasis. We loved waking up in the morning and have breakfast on the patio overlooking the woods and hearing the animals. Just perfect. I would go there and stay anytime.

    Mia2015-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • Tanya's place was an absolute gem in the middle of the rainforest. We met a member of the Corrales family at Luna Azul just down the street and she led us to the house. The pictures do not do the place justice, it has an amazing wrap around deck and open windows. Tanya had everything labeled for us so we didn't really have any questions. Please do yourself a favor and book here if you come to Monteverde!

    Lesley2015-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed here for four days and wish we could have stayed longer. The house is beautiful and secluded. It is so relaxing staying here. The hummingbirds were so charming. Tanya is a PHENOMENAL host!! If you need anything or have any questions she responds in a very timely fashion. Also, her recommendation of Marvin with horsetrek Monteverde was spot on! We had a wonderful time horseback riding and made a friend. I know next time we visit Costa Rica we'll certainly meet with him again. Also, she has many resources in the home and recommendations on places to eat and visit. Finally, everyone in Monteverde is so friendly and welcoming. You feel like part of the community! We loved our stay and we loved the house. We want to go back and stay there again!

    Kristina2016-05-12T00:00:00Z
  • Tanya gave my girlfriend and I a very very warm welcome. She showed us the property, explained her life story and treated us as if we were her own children. The house is absolutely beautiful and the pictures do not do it justice. It was off the beaten path and I would highly recommend 4WD to anyone attempting to get to the house. The house is in the rain forest so be prepared to see a bunch of wildlife in and around the house. The house is exceptionally clean and the kitchen is fully stocked with spices and cookware which was amazing. The bonfire pit on the wrap around porch was one a great activity to accompany our home-made mojitos and dinner. Overall a 12 out of 10. Exceeded all expectations and will be staying here again if I visit Costa Rica again

    Jacob2015-04-19T00:00:00Z
  • Tanya's home in Monteverde is absolutely beautiful... If you seek the seclusion of one of the most beautiful rainforests in Costa Rica and enjoy nature walks and hiking this is the place to stay. Tanya as a host was fantastic, she was always available if we had questions and always able to offer recommendations on restaurants and things to do.

    Meagan2014-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • Such an amazing getaway! The panoramic view of the forest through the many windows in the house was amazing. My boyfriend and I stayed in the house and it was perfect. Secluded in the forest, we never ran out of activities to do. There is a trail loop behind the house that take you down to a creek and a small waterfall. The Ficus tree on the trail magnificent; it was so massive you could stand under it. Watching the hummingbirds at the feeder in the morning with a cup of traditional Costa Rican brewed coffee never got old. We played lots of cribbage, and even made friends with a Coati that came up to the windows off the deck and watched us. So amazing!! I hope we get the chance to visit again!!

    Amber2016-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • Tanya’s home is stunningly beautiful! A true slice of heaven with everything you need! Check-in was easy and Leslie was very helpful with recommending things to do. The views from the house and wrap-around porch are breathtaking and it is very peaceful and relaxing. Monte Verde and Santa Elena are just around the corner and offer plenty of great restaurants like Tramonti’s (dinner), Stella’s bakery (breakfast) and The Beer House (lunch or dinner). I highly recommend this place and would love to come back soon. Thanks again!

    We live in the rural neighborhood of Bajo Rodriguez en Los Llanos, which is just oustide of the commercial center of Santa Elena. We have Costa Rican neighbors on one side and forest/creek on the other. We offer a somewhat off the beaten track feel, but not too far out of town and access to tourist attractions. Great birding right outside your door! Santa Elena-Monteverde includes a multitude of smaller communities that lie the border between the provinces of Puntarenas and Guanacaste. We are situated on the top of a mountain in the Tilaran mountain range. From various places in the zone, there are breathtaking views of Arenal Volcano and the Gulf of Nicoya from afar. It is about a 3 hour drive as you wind your way up from the international highway, with spectacular views of the San Luis valley below along the route. You can travel here through Las Juntas or Sardinal. Escape the heat of the lowlands as you climb into our green mountain home! Monteverde is most famous for its cloud forest, left as a watershed by the original Costa Rican and Quaker residents. Visitors can enjoy a wide variety of attractions, including much for the ecologically minded tourist with options for both education and adventure. Enjoy a guided day or night tour of many trail systems with a local naturalist, visit the Butterfly Garden, Bat Museum, or Frog Pond, whiz through a zipline canopy tour, or search out local artists at their galleries. . Music lovers will want to keep an eye on the Monteverde Institute calendar for the concerts they sponser every once in a while, or check out the Saturday night square dance once a month at the Friends school. Latin dancing in Santa Elena is a more regular event and Manolo and I are usually happy to accompany you and share our love of this pasttime. Monteverde is truly the perfect site both for nature lovers and those interested in rich cultural diversity.

  • Beth was a great host, coming out to help us find the place after we got a little lost on our way from San Jose in the dark! The place itself is perfect, peaceful location and everything worked - from hot water to wifi. Thanks Beth!

    Steve2015-04-24T00:00:00Z
  • My girlfriend and I spent a couple nights here and had a wonderful time exploring Monteverde. The cabin we stayed in was built by Beth's husband Manolo who, judging by the quality of the construction and interior, is a master tradesman. Both were exceptional hosts! They were very Helpful, kind and even baking some fresh banana bread leaving the cabin smelling amazing upon our arrival. There was some tasty passionfruit juice in the fridge and an array of fruit to enjoy. There are plenty of raving reviews here on Airbnb which is what led us to book our stay here and now we know why. So happy with our choice!

    Jemuel2016-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • Quel charmant endroit, deux jours trop courts. L'appartement est tel que decrit dans l'annonce, tres accueillant et calme. Beth est une adorable hote. Elle nous a refere un guide pour un tour de nuit competent et respectueux de la faune et flore. Nous retournerions sans hesitation.

    Luc Et Claire2017-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Beth and Manolo's cabin was an absolute joy to stay in and we loved every minute! It's tucked away off the touristy trail but still very close to all the local amenities. The pictures don't do it justice - the balcony is completely amazing and looks over jungle on one side and their beautiful garden on the other. There are even a couple of trails you can walk nearby and one on the property and we saw loads of amazing butterflies and birds right from the balcony. Beth and Manolo both gave us great advice on what to do in the local area and could not have been better hosts. Thank you so much for an amazing stay - I hope to come back soon (maybe to live?!)! X

    Emma-Claire2016-07-18T00:00:00Z
  • The perfect Airbnb experience and home to explore Monteverde Cloud Forest. Beth and Manolo were the loveliest hosts! The casa is beautifully hand made with care and attention to detail. It was super comfortable, homely and private and had everything we needed during our stay. We even had the opportunity to spot a sloth close by to the house. We have stayed in many Airbnb's and this is one of the best. Thank you and see you again Beth and Manolo :)

    Erina2014-11-14T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Beth's "Casa Libelula" has been the most wonderful experience. The house has a uniquely appointed style which blends seamlessly with the setting. When we arrived, there was a sloth relaxing on a tree next to the house, a warm banana bread waiting in the oven and some fresh Monteverde coffee for us ready. Getting around by taxi has not been a problem - all the taxi drivers knew the place and a ride into town only cost (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) colones. Beth takes being a host to another level: she organized all the shuttles from and to Monteverde at discounted prices and was attentive without being intrusive. After three nights at "Casa Libelula" we were heartbroken to leave and we will return for sure on our next trip.

    Sereina2016-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • Beth and her family were more than accommodating for our trip! We were greeted with baking banana bread in our toaster oven and fresh fruit in the fruit bowl! This was by far our favorite place to stay in all of Costa Rica. We would recommend it to anyone. We loved watching the birds from the porch, hearing the rain in the evening, and walking the property and nearby reserve. Beth is super friendly and insightful and will answer any of your questions. Do not hesitate to stay here. It is even nice by Western standards.

    Beatiful cabin for 4 people on a coffee, fruit, and vegetable farm in Monteverde. Kitchen and fridge included with the free food to cook with from the farm. 20 minutes in car or taxi from the center of Santa Elena and buses are available. WIFI
    I am a 60 year old mother who runs a coffee, fruit, vegetable, and animal farm 20 minutes outside of the center of Montaverde. We are happy to house couples, families, or individuals in our beatiful new cabin with kitchen, fridge, and shower with hot water. The wood cabin is very spacious with plenty of space to cook and pass time with others. I will show you around the farm and you are welcome to cook with our fresh produce, milk, and eggs, and I'm happy to show you traditional Costa Rican recipes! And of course, free fresh coffee. We ask that you stay at least 2 days. You will email my daughter Adriana to book the cabin, as she speaks more English than myself.
  • Super séjour de 5 nuits! Hermida a le cœur sur la main. Elle fait profiter des produits de son jardin et est toujours de bons conseils. Elle s'est toujours montrée soucieuse que tout se passe au mieux durant notre séjour! Lieux à recommander! :)

    Marie-Laure2016-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • Es una casa que tiene lo indispensable para descansar, cocinar y relajarse es amplia y la zona es súper tranquila. Adriana y su madre con verlas te das cuenta que tienen un gran corazón Recomendable intenten ir cuando no llueva

    Camilo2016-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • Gloria’s Farm was amazing! It was so beautiful and peaceful. Gloria gave us a tour of her farm and filled our hands up with so much food we could barely hold it all. She grows and roasts her own coffee, which she provides to everyone who stays, and is available for sale in TSA safe packaging. It’s about 30mins away from monteverde’s cloud forest reserve. It was lovely!

    Graham2018-05-05T00:00:00Z
  • We LOVED staying on the coffee farm! We felt right at home and Dona Hermida was super, super kind. Though no one in our party spoke Spanish well, we were always able to communicate with smiles! Adriana was super helpful as well with answering my questions in a timely manor too. All the accommodations were great-- the bathroom, bedrooms, cook stove, sink, wi-fi... no complaints at all. Dona Hermida fed us breakfast one morning and gave us a tour of her coffee farm with some students. We loved this, and it was super appreciated! One thing that we struggled with was the roads and getting back and forth to Monteverde. We had a small car, and found it ROUGH to get around. If you are staying here for more than a couple days, it would be really wise to rent an SUV. The Coffee Farm is about 25 minutes away from town. Other than that, we loved this place! We want Dona Hermida to come visit us in Maine, USA! :)

    Lauren2016-03-29T00:00:00Z
  • This place was just fantastic. Adriana was very helpful before arriving with tips and directions. Once we arrived Ermida was so welcoming, friendly and such a happy person. The cabin had everything we needed and was comfortable for our 3 night stay. The local area has lots to do and Ermida helped us book places.....she also cooked us wonderful food and showed us around the farm. A real gem of a place.

    Lizzy2016-05-25T00:00:00Z
  • A quaint homestead on a working coffee plantation that is an experience that anyone who has grown up on a farm can appreciate. City folk can learn from this amazing woman what labour and family truly mean.

    Cecile2018-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved our stay with Ermida and family! They were so welcoming and kind. Ermida showed us around for hours and even let us help her cook with fresh ingredients and foods from her farm. It was a true Costa Rican experience. Would definitely go back in the future...but next time for much longer! Pura vida!

    This small unique little house is in the heart of the Monteverde, right outside of the Bajo del Tigre private reserve (less than 500 mts). You will be awakened by the chants of the Bell Birds and see a beautiful sunset of the canopy of the forest.
    Small little house close to the Children Eternal Rain Forest, secluded from down town. In the heart of Monteverde.
    Our house is in Bajo del Tigre. It's a street that leads to a magical private reserve. Just a few houses in the street very calm. You can hear the birds chirping and the wind moving the trees around. A special place to unplug from the busy cities.
  • Our stay in Hummingbird house was a delight! The cozy little house has everything we needed for our two days stay, exactly as pictures describe. Also Alvaro was a very nice host, helping us and accommodating. He made space for our rented car in his house/garden next door.

    Luciana2015-09-06T00:00:00Z
  • Muy bonito y con todas las comodidades. En medio de la naturaleza. Lo recomiendo a otros huespedes :)

    Mich2016-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • The Hummingbird house was perfectly located and equipped with everything we needed to cook and hang out comfortably. The host was very kind and welcomed us with fresh fruit and allowed us to do a load of (much needed) laundry. The lot is safe with a fence to close around the property (and parking). Although there are some guard dogs living next door, we didn't pay much attention to them (even though they barked when we walked by). We were able to walk to the Monteverde town from this property but we'd recommend bringing a flashlight and cab fare in case you get tired. It was a little hard to find but we asked locals and they helped. There was no hot water in the shower but we survived. :)

    Tara2016-04-11T00:00:00Z
  • I really enjoyed my time staying at the Hummingbird house. It is in a great location about half an hour walk outside of town. Very close to the monteverde cloud reserve and close to a local grocer and a couple of restaurants and cafes. Alvaro was very helpful with any questions I had and even organized an early morning taxi for me to get the bus out of town. The house was small but beautiful. Two levels with the bed and bathroom upstairs and a full equipped kitchen downstairs.

    Amy2015-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • My stay was very comfortable. The house is a bit hard to find so use the GPS coordinates. But once you’ve found it, the location is great. Close to the cloud forest and other reserves. The unit itself worked great for me since I’m a single person. There was parking inside the gate. The shower was not great since it can warm the water only to lukewarm. So taking showers in the morning or evening was a bit chilly. Overall, I enjoyed my stay. I would stay here again if I visit Monteverde.

    Vikrant2017-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • La petite maison est rustique et entourée de forêt. Nous avons vu beaucoup d'oiseaux et de papillons (morphos), donc parfait pour les amoureux de la nature. Toutefois ceci vient avec ses inconvénients, il y avait beaucoup d'insectes, morts et vivants dans la maisonnette. Nous avons tout de même apprécié notre séjour.

    Andréanne2017-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • cute, cozy, comfy. good for a couple!

    Carrie2018-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Very cozy home right in the rainforest. Easy walk to the reserve, coffee HQ, and cute bakery. We really enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it to anyone.

    The Arenal Tree Cabin is the perfect place to stay in La Fortuna, San Carlos. The Cabin is for 4 people, it is very confortable for families, couples and friends, is totally equipment, it can be more economic in your vacations.The property where is located, it is very nice, private and well maintained, close to the main road, you have to consider that.
    The Cabin has two rooms . It has a great terrace, a equipment kitchen and parking area.
    It is located close to the main road.
  • One of the most unique places I've stayed in. Hosts were very helpful assisting us with booking tours by the Arenal Volcano

    Sean2017-04-22T00:00:00Z
  • The house is exactly like the pictures. Roy was very nice. He gave us plenty of useful information. Check-in was easy. The house is not easy to find at first (like everything in CR!) but when you know where it is, it is easy! It was a bit noisy at times (road nearby) but otherwise we were happy with our choice!

    Jennifer2016-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic spot! Made our stay great.

    Max2017-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • Roy was amazing as a host! The place was located just outside the downtown area (1 mile). The place feels very homey and is absolutely beautiful. The place is off of a main road however and can be a bit noisy early on in the night. Overall great place and we were very satisfied. Would recommend to anyone who is traveling in a group, couple, or even alone. The only negative part about the place and this goes with a lot of Costa Rica is that there is no hot water. Other than that perfect house, perfect location for a getaway and an amazing host with great recommendations!

    Chad2018-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful hosts who go out of their way to be of assistance. They were out of town for Christmas when we arrived so they made sure a friend was available to meet us and get us settled. Excellent job. Gave us great advice on which hot springs to visit (Paradise) which was much less crowded than the more touristy places and for a day trip to Cano Negro. The tree house is a unique place to stay, clean, and spacious enough for a family. It's just a short drive into La Fortuna. Overall an excellent visit.

    Michael2016-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • If you hoping to relax and enjoy the wild life of Arenal, this is not the place for you. Right on the main road, all you can hear is the cars passing by.

    Yana2017-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • Great experience at the sweet little cabin! Great use of space and not too hard to find. Roy personally took us to the cabin itself and spend time showing us around. The only thing is I wish we were warned how incredibly loud it is on the road in the middle of the night. I couldn't imagine families with young kids being able to sleep with the GIANT lorries and motorbikes zooming around at 2am (it's right on the only access road around that part of time, basically a costa rican highway, and both neighbors were doing construction the whole time we were visiting). But for young couples like us, it was a great location to get access to all that we wanted to do in La Fortuna & Arenal! Thank you so much! -Liv & Jordan

    Livi2018-03-23T00:00:00Z
  • Great location just outside of town. You are near a main road that is close to the waterfall and rope swing and only a short drive into town. If you are not an early riser then you may be woken up by traffic noise but at night we did not notice it and enjoyed sitting on the patio listening to the sounds of the forest.

    Casa MOT-MOT is in the heart of Monteverde, surrounded by nature in a private forest, open gardens and biological corridors for wildlife, within a short walk or 5 minutes of drive of the Monteverde Cloud Forest among others. (Minimo de estancia para reservar 2 noches // Minimun 2 nights stay to do a reservation)
    The first floor is open and airy overlooking the forest and gardens and is equipped with a kitchen, including all cooking equipment; refrigerator, stove, microwave, blender, coffee maker and living/dining area, double bed and full bath. The second floor is private and spacious with a balcony, double bed, dressing room and full bath.
    Monteverde was founded in the early 1950´s by Quaker pioneers who recognized the diversity of the flora and fauna and began the effort to preserve the forest. The community has grown by welcoming biologist, educators, students and people from all over the world who come to teach, study and enjoy the natural environment.
  • Super appartement! Vraiment proche de la nature et du centre-ville en même temps. Heather nous a super bien reçu et bien expliqué tout ce qu'on avait besoin de savoir. Elle a été très disponible lorsque nous avons eu des questions. Je recommende fortement ce logement!

    Elyse2017-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I stayed at Casa Mot Mot in February. Although the journey along the road to get there was a little on the bumpy side, our stay at Heather's place smoothed everything out. The photos on Airbnb were so beautiful, it made us want to book the casa right away. After our arrival, it turned out to be even more than we expected. Heather is a true artisan with all the mosaics and special touches. You can tell she really goes the extra mile to get everything just right. Our first day there, we decided to start walking the main road that leads to Santa Elena to see how far we could go before requiring a taxi. Well, we made it all the way (twice during our 5 day stay) stopping in shops and restaurants as we went. So much art, coffee, and places to eat along the way. Heather has a very informative book of places she recommends also. Taxis are easy to come by for those less adventurous and they all seem to know where Mot Mot is. Be prepared for lots of wind at this time of year. We had beautiful skies, very little rain, and just enough warmth to keep us happy. The beds are very comfortable...on the firm side, and after you get used to how to adjust the showers, they are very adequate also. We would definitely stay with Heather again and hope to next year.

    Linda2018-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Casa Motmot was a great retreat for me and my family in Monteverde. It was excellent for wildlife spotting in a quiet setting. Heather was very welcoming telling us all about the things to do in town and provided some food for us a welcome gift.

    David2016-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful property quietly situated in its own private jungle a short drive from town. The perfect respite from the hustle and bustle of modern life. Our favorite Airbnb in Costa Rica. Pura vida!

    Sean2018-05-14T00:00:00Z
  • This is the perfect place for anyone visiting monteverde. Heather is an incredible, warm and thoughtful host, and the house is well-located by all major attractions. Highly recommend!!

    Lyndsey2017-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Casa Mot-Mot was amazing!!!! The place is so beautiful...and huge! We were so sad that we only stayed 2 nights. It was our favorite place from the entire Costa Rica trip. The location cannot be beat...the house is deep in the cloud forest, very close to the entrance of the national park. But Heather provided us with a very detailed description of how to find it. For breakfast, she also got us bread with guave jam (so yummy) and delicious fresh fruits! Also a big shoutout to her husband!!! The roads to Monteverde are very bad and we managed to get a flat tire. Her husband was super helpful and changed the tire for us!!! I highly recommend to stay at Casa Mat-Mot!!

    Sonja2016-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Our family loved this place, it's very nicely decorated, with lots of artwork. We stayed for 2 nights with our 6 yo daughter and our 1 yo son and it was very comfortable and cozy, I don't think you can find a better place for a family in Monteverde. Our daughter slept in the bed downstairs and our son in our pack n play in a little room next to the upstairs bedroom, which worked out perfectly. Having our own kitchen was very handy for preparing and cleaning bottles, pacifiers, heating baby food, etc. I had been in Monteverde before and for me this location is the best one, quiet, surrounded by mountain, next to the Cloud Forest Reserve, Curi-Cancha Reserve and a short minute drive from Santa Elena (the "big" town),it is also very close to a great bakery (Stella's) and italian restaurant (Tramonti). The views are incredible, you feel like you are literally in the middle of the forest. Heather is amazing, she recommended us places to visit,eat, and go zip lining, and we followed her advices and were very happy with the results. We would love to go back.

    Gianina2016-07-13T00:00:00Z
  • The house is perfectly located in the Monteverde area. The place was spotless and the view from the kitchen window watching the birds was awesome. The house was perfect for 2 couples. We needed extra blankets and Heather got them for us right away. No AC was needed at this place. I would highly recommend it if you want to stay away from the middle of all the bustle. The adventures were only 20 minutes away. We had a fabulous time at the Adventure park and the ATV was fabulous. You must try this. The guides were a hoot.

    Unplug & Reconnect in this modern/authentic Costa Rican style home, nestled in the Cloud Forest. Spectacular, breathtaking view. Private & Peaceful. Hi Speed Wifi. Everything you need to recharge your system. The road to the house is primarily a dirt road going up the mountain so a 4x4 is highly recommended, also the driveway up to the house is very steep.
    Safe, Quiet, Surrounded by Rain Forest and Wildlife. Great for disconnecting and plugging into nature. Wonderful creative space. Very quiet!
    Santa Elena is the neighborhood that is close by. Plenty of restaurants to dine at. Let us know , we have great recommendations!
  • The view was amazing!!! The home is tucked in the mountain side for the perfect amount of privacy with an amazing view of the cloud forest. During our stay it was particularly windy and cold which we were not prepared for however the bed was super warm. There was a rooster that woke us up every morning in enough time to see the sun rise lol! Maria was out of town during our stay so she arranged for the owner of the property to meet us for Check in. She met us and showed us to and around the home. Maria was always available through Airbnb to answer any questions I had!! If you want a private view of the cloud forest this isn’t your place. Just bring warm clothes and maybe ear plugs if you’re not an early riser. :)

    Tiffanie2018-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic stay in Monteverde with the Zen Cloud home. Location is amazing; Maria was very helpful before, during, and after our stay. The only regret we have is not planning a longer stay here. It really was perfect, beautiful, and everything we needed

    Marilyn2016-05-20T00:00:00Z
  • Very welcoming and super helpful with activities.

    Todd2016-07-26T00:00:00Z
  • This was an exceptionally fun rental. Traveling around Costa Rica, I have had a hard time finding a place that I could cook in and the kitchen was excellent. I really enjoyed the views from the front windows. Spectacular! Maria was so kind and helpful! I really enjoyed meeting her and her partner. She even introduced me to her lovely mother! The cool breezes were a welcome change and I nestled in, baked bread and read books. The adorable towns of Monteverde and Sta Elena were close enough, but far enough away to give a sense of complete immersion in nature. I highly recommend this place to anyone traveling through the area.

    Merrilyn2016-07-06T00:00:00Z
  • The cabin was new, clean, spacious, and had a breathtaking view of Monteverde looking out towards the Nicoya Peninsula. There is plenty of space for 2 couples to stay there and still have their own space. Maria met us in town to guide us up to the cabin as it is well off the beaten path, as well as giving us information about where to eat and when to see the attractions. She was also very good about communicating both before and during our stay. I would stay there again!

    Brian2016-04-15T00:00:00Z
  • Maria was a great host and very accomodable as we had to change the day of our stay and she made the arrangements for us. The view at night is amazing and the location is not too far off the main village so it's a perfect getaway in nature.

    Jean-Nykolas2016-05-13T00:00:00Z
  • We couldn't have asked for much more than this private hillside retreat for our first trip to Costa Rica. During our October visit, the sun rose at 5:30am to reveal the beautiful landscape that you see advertised in the pictures. Costa Rican weather during these months can (will) turn to intense rain in the afternoon, and the sounds produced are nothing short of amazing. After each day of adventuring, we laid in bed for a few moments during the afternoon admiring the rain and enjoying the sounds of nature. Maria has excellent communication, and we only needed to call on her once for an issue which she resolved quickly. Lastly, our hosts showed up with horses to take us horseback riding on our last day. It was at a heavily discounted rate over what you'll pay in town and we throughly enjoyed it. Will definitely stay again!

    James2016-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • Maria was an all-in-one amazing deal! She helped set up a rental car for my friends and I when we arrived in Costa Rica. She also set up an AMAZING zip lining excursion for us four. Her house was clean, roomy, unique, and had one of the best views in Monteverde. We highly recommend anyone to stay at Maria's Place.

The view from the room is incredible- we would drink coffee in bed with a view of the rainforest. The place is modern and has a very nice bathroom. The rooftop is a great place to sit and enjoy the fresh air with a great view. This was one of our favorite places we stayed and would stay there again in a heartbeat. Wifi was a little spotty but other than that no worries!

  • This place its pretty Amazing. Love the fact that's it's a shipping container. We saw the pictures and it was a oh yeah we need to stay here type of thing. The bedroom with the big Windows looking into the hill side was a beautiful site in the morning and while the sun was setting. The roof was a dope add on. Have drink up there and just relax and let it all sink in while your looking into the center of the town. It's about a 5min walk to were the food and shopping is at. A nice bakery that's been there for 30 years was a plus for that morning coffee. Parking for you Car. Free WiFi and I can't forget about the shower now that's a shower is all ima say.

    Alejandro2017-04-05T00:00:00Z
  • My boyfriend and I loved our stay here! It was just a short walk into the city and very close to everything! Ernesto helped us book last minute tours and he was quick to response to any questions. The view from the roof and the room is wonderful! There is enough stuff in the kitchen to make a meal if you're on a budget. We will definitely stay here next time we visit!

    The neighborhood is safe as well as quiet (familiar area, parents with children and workers always walking around all day and night). What it makes special it’s the kindness from all neighbors, they will give you a smile and they will always greet you and will help you if you need anything. Neighbors are mostly families with children, since La Fortuna is one of the most touristic areas in Costa Rica, neighbors use to work for hotel, tour operators, etc. Rafaela (the person who oversees the cleaning) lives in one of the apartments, she is an immigrant from Nicaragua and she has many years living in Costa Rica, she is super sweet and kind. If you need to arrive earlier to La Fortuna and you need to leave your luggage somewhere, her apartment will be the perfect place for that, as well if you are leaving La Fortuna after 12 and you need a place to store your stuffs. After Rafaela finish her duties every day, she offers LAUNDRY SERVICE to all my guests, so if you decide to request the service, she will take care of your dirty clothes. There are street lights along the sidewalk from the center of town to the apartment, it is safe to walk anytime at night but in case that decide to walk late (after midnight), try to do it at least with another person, otherwise you can take a taxi (it is not because the area is dangerous at night but because it is better if you do not expose yourself to a potential dangerous situation). I have never seen nor heard about any assault in the neighborhood, but it is better if you are not too confident.
  • This was a perfect place to stay in La Fortuna! Very detailed instructions provided by the host made it easy to find and easy to get around. We were only there for one night but it would be a great place to stay for a few days with a family. When getting around by shuttle, it is easiest to tell people to drop you at Hotel El Volcan, and walk from there to the apartment. We didn't discover the air conditioner in the master bedroom until morning, but didn't really need it. We used the tour agency Roy recommends, which is a short walk into town, and they helped us book a canopy tour and hot springs visit rolled into one at Hotel Los Lagos, which we definitely recommend on a budget. It was cheap, great and included a lot of wildlife spotting, water slides and a pool bar that wasn't a crowded sportsbar. Get (Hidden by Airbnb) on your phone in order to communicate with Roy.

    Danielle2016-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Great place. Location was short walk to town. Grocery store was near by and fun to be able to park car and walk to town. Roy was quick to respond to questions and that was helpful. Apartment was in safe area and easy to get around. Defiantly stay here.

    Dave2017-02-18T00:00:00Z

    Victor2015-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the comfort and convenience of Roy's place; a great stop for us while touring the Arenal region. Listing was totally accurate; it is a clean, cozy place right in the heart of La Fortuna. Walking distance to the stores and restaurants and a short drive to all the area attractions. We loved all the insight and information on what to do in the area that Roy provides; priceless info. We would highly recommend staying at Roy's place and would stay again if we come back to see more.

    Casa Ira Rosa is situated in the mountains of Monteverde just a few minutes walk to the world famous Monteverde Reserve. This peaceful retreat, is nestled within the misty canopy and offers a distinct log cabin feel.
    The house has a fully equipped kitchen, 2 living room areas and a porch! Great for families! It has 3 bedrooms, two with 1 double bed and one with a single bed. The house is big enough to sleep up to 7 people, the extra sleeping in sofa beds. We can provide extra sheets and pillows in this case.
    The nearest shopping center ("downtown" Santa Elena) is about 3 miles away from the house. Along the way to Santa Elena you can find all kinds of restaurants, shops and information offices. The Monteverde Reserve entrance, is only 10 to 15 minutes walking from the house (about 800 meters). The best hikes are very early in the morning, between 5 and 6:30 am, or in the evenings after 4 pm, to observe birds. The Reserve is open from 7 am to 3 pm .
  • This is a great place to hang out. Our family of 5 had more room than we could use. It is bigger than the description. It is also cold. Wear two pair of socks (no shoes allowed). The wood interiors are beautiful. You will enjoy staying here as you explore Monteverde.

    Mike2017-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • Really lovely house and good hosts! Thanks for everything !

    Vanes2017-05-23T00:00:00Z
  • Gabriela's home was lovely, and very comfortable for a family. We would totally recommend it to others.

    Jonathan2016-07-19T00:00:00Z
  • Gabriela made us feel at home!! I wish that we could have longer. I highly recommend staying here!!

    Shannon2016-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • Gabriella and her family were very helpful and friendly hosts. We found a delicious homemade loaf of banana bread waiting for us and the property was beautiful. I had a light jacket and a rain jacket and used both during our time in Monteverde especially during a hike in the Monteverde reserve and while zip lining, it gets chilly so be sure to pack appropriately. The property is within walking distance to the Monteverde reserve, cheese factory, bakery, small food market and a couple restsurants. A bus schedule is posted on premises if needed.

    Anton2015-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Great place Lovely stay! Thank you

    Lou2017-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Look no further! This is your home while visiting one of the most beautiful places in Costa Rica. Charming cabin; excellent contacts for easy check-in; nestled in an amazing forest yet right on the road for visiting anything near Santa Elena and Monteverde. We cannot wait to return for a longer stay.

    Kathy2017-06-02T00:00:00Z
  • Gabriela's dad greeted us warmly and made us feel at home (with a tray of banana muffins to start the stay). He was quick to respond to the presence of wasps in the house. The house is fantastic to experience the forest firsthand. We certainly felt that this was a unique experience and would have loved to stay here longer.

  • The apartment is clean, comfortable, and has an amazing view of jungle and small stream outside. Oscar was very quick to communicate and the couple on site were also very helpful. Highly recommended!

    Peter2018-07-15T00:00:00Z
  • We loved Oscar's place! Great location and beautiful room.

    Farah2018-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • This little cabin was spotless, tidy, and cozy. There's a beautiful creek that runs behind it, making the back patio the perfect spot to enjoy morning tea before the days adventures. The room had a hot plate, microwave, and small fridge, so after stocking up at the mini super (15min walk away) we were able to cook for ourselves, which really helps save money in Monteverde. Oscar himself was very kind and available for help as needed. Definitely would stay again! (In fact, we added an extra night we hadn't originally planned on)

    Jessie2017-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • In Aug.2017, we stayed 2 weeks in the Forest Unit at the Casa Balbi in Monteverde, Costa Rica. We would go back in a heartbeat. Oscar, and his son, Larry, could not have been better. If we requested something, it was done immediately. We spent many hours eating or reading on the covered porch watching birds, butterflies, the rain(which we don't see much of in San Diego), the small waterfall & creek, the flowers, and the beautiful tropical forest. Oscar and Larry were so great to visit us, suggest places to eat, give directions to places, and even took us out to a restaurant that our car could not have made it to. The first night they brought us ice and limes from their trees. Out one window-view, we could see cows grazing. Sooo peaceful.......there was a small bit of traffic noise, but only at certain times of the day did we notice it. Don't expect anything but the essential supplies in the kitchen area, but we did just fine with it. Hats off to Oscar & Larry for making us feel at home. Note: Don't open the windows in the bathroom unless you want to share it with moths. Mary and Joe Berkley

    Joe2017-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • Lo mejor de monteverde es este hogar!!! El sonido del río te pondrá de buenas siempre, y muchas vistas por doquier! Lo recomiendo

    Leonardo2017-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • This was a wonderful spot to get the most out of Monteverde and surrounding area. The space feels secluded and like you are right in the middle of the forest. We loved our stay at casa Balbi :)

    Kristina2018-05-27T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time in Monteverde! The house was easy to find and a short drive to town with a car. When we initially booked the place we were undecided about getting a car and thought we might just walk everywhere. While it's certainly possible to walk -- it's pretty steep dirt rode so I would definitely recommend renting a car. The house had all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay -- our favorite amenity was the little stream right off our back deck! Oscar and Larry were very helpful hosts -- they recommended Stella's Coffee for morning bird watching (a recommendation I'd echo), Hotel Bel Mar to watch the sunset (another great recommendation), and gave us some information about hiking and doing a coffee/chocolate/night hike. All the recommendations they gave us we tried and enjoyed. They even booked the tours for us, which was extremely helpful.

    Deb2018-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Adorable petit studio... avec même sa cascade devant le patio. Oscar est très accueillant, jovial. Sa gaité est communicative, même quand on a des soucis avec sa voiture de location ! Pura vida en réel...

Visitors can enjoy a wide variety of attractions, including much for the ecologically minded tourist with options for both education and adventure.

  • If you are going to Monteverde and plan on seeing amazing sunsets and doing all that the town has to offer, look no further. Hands down Christian and his brother Roy are absolutely amazing hosts. You will be greated at reception where one of them will sit down and show you a map of the town.

After this you wil recieve a guided tour of your place including a walk outside and inside the location. Stunning views! the sky bridge from ours that overlooked the valley was incredible! Super clean interior with all working appliances, Hot water, clean large bathroom, full size mirror, outdoor patio, all windows have screens, and so much more. Best AirBnB experience I have ever had!

    Niles2018-07-18T00:00:00Z
  • Die Unterkunft ist sehr schön ausgestattet. Leider von der Terrasse nur Ausblick auf Baumstämme und kein Wlan vorhanden. Vom zu Fuss in 5min erreichbaren Aussichtspunkt sahen wir wunderschöne Sonnenuntergänge. Roy war sehr hilfsbereit und nett.

Christian and his brother work hard to help everybody design their own custom trip. Everything they recommended was exactly what we wanted to do. Highly recommended to independent travelers who want to stay local and not pay an arm and a leg!

  • The cabin was absolutely lovely. The amenities were perfect, the bed was extremely comfortable, and the location was in a perfect place. There are beautiful hiking trails just out of the doorstep. Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve is just 10 minutes down the road, along with restaurants and other activites. Juan greeted us with complete politeness and answered any questions we had about the area. We highly recommend staying at the Green Paradise bungalows.

    Micaela2018-05-19T00:00:00Z
  • Una experiencia muy bonita. El alojamiento es una pasada, una cabaña de madera en medio de la selva con absolutamente todo lo que puedas imaginar. Juan es un buen anfitrion, respondia super rapido y nos ayudo con los tours

  • The cabin of Juan is a very luxurious cabin with washing machine and a very good kithen. The view was inrcedible and when you walk down one of the trails you’ll get a view as good as in Monteverde national park. Juan was a great host, hè came to visit us after we checked in. The bed was really lovely. We would defenetly stay there again. Best regards, Thom & Kayleigh

    Thom2018-07-26T00:00:00Z
  • This place it’s nicer than the pictures, we find out how important it’s the location in Monteverde, and this house it’s amazingly located. Close to the reserves of cloud forest,curi cancha , cheese factory and very nice restaurants. You have your own trails with a beautiful panoramic point at the end and two amazing trees to climb. Kitchen has everything. Laundry even with some soup! And your own WiFi. What else you ask for!? Well.. Juan it’s a very nice host to.

    Juan2018-04-08T00:00:00Z
  • Good place to stay in the cloud forest while not being far out of town. There were animals that we could see from our place and hikes we could take with the map provided. A bit rustic, but had all of the essentials needed for a nice stay.

    Beautiful space in a secluded part of Monteverde but still close to many attractions, including the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve. This is ideal as you get some quiet, but you can walk to the places you need to get to. Enjoy your stay with us, surrounded by nature and tranquility and wake up to the sounds of birds, and if your lucky, monkeys in the back yard. Tacari is great for couples looking for a romantic getaway, or singles who want some good comfortable R and R.
    We offer a very large private room with a big comfy bed, jacuzzi (hot tub), hot shower, couch, private balcony, microwave, mini-fridge, coffee maker, Wifi, and a private garden space. And even though it's an incredible room, the true highlight is waking up to some spectacular views.
    This community has grown based on the concept of sustainable tourism and there are very many attractions catered for all sorts of tastes, come visit us and get to see some of the wonders of the Cloud Forest (which represent only 2% of the forests of the world, but contain a huge amount of its biodiversity). In the area you can do from hikes, adventure tourism (ziplinning, etc.), coffee tours, horse back riding, etc.
  • La nostra camera con bagno era molto carina, qualche problema con l'acqua calda. La location é perfetta per visitare il parco Monteverde. Purtroppo non ho incontrato Valentina ma la comunicazione é stat molto facile via email.

    Gemma2017-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • We hebben 2 nachten hier verbleven, de foto's tonen je wat je krijgt. Het is een mooie plek. Bed en de kussens zijn vreeslijk hard wij hebben zeer slecht geslapen. Jacuzzi werkt maar voor de helft. Eerste nacht hadden we geen warm water ( maar dit is een algemeen probleem in Costa Rica) wifi was af en aan aanwezig vooral s'avonds werkte dit niet tot nauwelijks.

    Helga2018-05-04T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and I stayed here on our first visit to Costa Rica. This is a lovely place if you like peace and quiet like us. It's close to a 3-4 hour hiking trail, where we saw the much saught after Quetzel bird, as well many others. We would recommend staying here if your thinking of checking out this part of Costa Rica. It's not too far to walk to town, about 20-30 minutes, and there's a trail most of the way.

    Heather And Joey2018-04-11T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was incredible. Would have stayed for a month if I could have. Perfect, beautiful views. Incredible house and area to stay in Monteverde. I had a wonderful experience and would recommend with all sincerity.

  • Great propety, very clean. Super helpful host!

    Tom2016-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • The view is beautiful and the area was so quiet! The apartment was clean. The basics are EXTREMELY basic (no drinking glasses, wash clothes, trash can, etc). So be prepared with some of your own items. Also, the water never got above lukewarm, making the hot tub unusable on our trip. So if this is a selling feature, I wouldn't rely on it. We were very disappointed and felt mislead in this being an amenity.

    Rebecca2017-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely house, very good communication. Quiet location, out of town and literally 5 mins drive away from Monteverde Reserve and excellent internet connection. However, it might have been due to the rainy season and the fact that there was not enough sun to heat up the water, but we were not able to use the hot tub using hot water and have a shower the next morning.

    Rebecca And Christian2017-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place. Hot water was iffy, and was resolved after we left. We love Monteverde very much. Also if your driving up the mountain give yourself plenty of daylight. We drove at night our first night in Costa Rica and was a sketchy drive in the dark. Can't wait to go back though

  • La casa è molto bella immersa nel verde e nel contempo a due minuti da ristoranti e servizi. Comunicazione facile e veloce. Ernesto sempre disponibile in pochi minuti per risolvere problemi minori. Lavanderia a disposizione molto utile con asciugatrice. Grazie dell’ospitalità e dei consigli per attività e ristoranti

  • A fantastic house near Monteverde and the Cloud Forest. Instantly, we felt at home in the villa - thanks to Abby, who was very friendly and helpful.

    Lars Erik2016-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • What a wonderful house. Perfectly situated near (3 minute walking distance) Santa elena and 10 minutes out any activities in Monteverde park. Huge rooms, well decorated, amazing balconies and terrace! Very good for 2 couples since both room has their own private entrance and bathrooms (so does the kitchen). Amazing value when it comes to how much they're charging and what you're getting. We managed to arrive a little early and they were very flexible when it came to checking in earlier. Thank you for everything !

  • Excellent location near the centre of Santa Elena Spacious clean rooms, well equiped kitchen

    Martine2017-07-17T00:00:00Z
  • My boyfriend and I had a great time at Casa Ficus. The host was very easy to communicate with and always responded immediately to messages. The location is great, walking distance to town and a short drive (10-20 minutes) to the national parks and zip lining. Highly recommended if you are visiting Monteverde!

    Melissa2017-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • After a month in Costa Rica, Adrian's house was our favorite by some measure. Sparkling clean, modern kitchen, comfortable beds, great location. A perfect stay. Thanks.

  • Nous avons adoré Monteverde. La route en vaut le détour. La maison était absolument splendide, très confortable et super bien située. L'hôte s'assure que la maison est impeccable et la femme de ménage vient tous les jours. Nous avons adoré manger en regardant les montagnes. La pâtisserie tout près est un incontournable. Bref, Monteverde vaut le détour pour ses superbes paysages.

    catherine2016-07-15T00:00:00Z
  • We have stayed at many airbnb places over the years, and Adrian's Santa Elena home was the best we have stayed in. It is an easy walk to town and a short drive to the cloud forest and area attractions. Adrian was an excellent host, greeted us with his family's own coffee, and arranged for us to have a guided night tour of the cloud forest. Our family would love to go back. The bedrooms and kitchen are as immaculate as the photographs show. Two traveling tips: First, the roads up to Santa Elena and Monteverde are steep, rough and take longer than expected to drive. Second, nights can be cool at that altitude, so pack some fall clothes. Pura Vida!

  • Vanessa & Roy were great hosts who were always available to help - whether it was booking our tours, offering local recommendations or assisting us with any issues that arised. The cabin itself is private, quiet and we loved the ducks, fishes and turtle that live by the pond. It's location is around 5 mins drive from La Fortuna, and it was perfect for our needs. Would highly recommend for anyone who rents a car/4x4 during their stay in La Fortuna.

On a more specific and detailed description, the house features: * KITCHEN & LIVING ROOM with couch that turns into a comfy bed.

    The neighborhood is safe as well as quiet (familiar area, parents with children and workers always walking around all day and night). What it makes special the area it is the kindness from all neighbors, they will show you a smile and they will always greet you and will help you if you need anything. Neighbors are mostly families with children, since La Fortuna is one of the most touristic areas in Costa Rica, neighbors use to work for hotel, tour operators, etc. The supermarket is just 100mts away, it opens from 8:30am to 8:30pm. So if you need to way any grocery, it is just steps away, so you can easily walk there from the house. La Fortuna downtown is about 800mts away. There is a side walk and street lights that takes you safe to town, if you want to walk, but I can also call you a cab if you prefer it or you can drive.
  • Hébergement très bien situé, pour goûter à la vie de quartier Costa Ricain tout en étant près de tout. Roy est un hôte hors pair et la maison est petite mais confortable. Gracies!

    Veronique2017-03-11T00:00:00Z

  • Roy’s place is great. Short walk to fortuna and very much as described. Roy was very responsive and helpful

    Ron2018-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • This place is a neat house right on a local street in La Fortuna. It is close to town and has a great view of the volcano if its not cloudy (which unfortunately for us was not the case). The street is really a typical Costa Rican street but the house has a gate which you can lock at night and we always felt secure in the area. The only negative was that you can sometimes hear the next door neighbours. Other than that, the place was clean and a good experience.

    Laura2018-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • Roy's condo was the perfect place for us to call home base on our trip to La Fortuna. It allows easy access to the "downtown" area of La Fortuna, and is also around the corner from a market. The upper patio is also a plus, and is the best seat in the house for a clear day of the volcano. The air conditioning in the unit was more than sufficient enough for us, as we never felt too hot or had trouble sleeping at night. Be forewarned, there isn't hot water in the shower. Honestly though, a hot shower is the last thing you'll want after spending a day adventuring around Fortuna! If we ever do have the chance to travel again to Fortuna, we would definitely love to stay in Roy's place :)

    Campbell2016-12-06T00:00:00Z
  • Very cute and scenic spot with awesome view of Arenal Volcano right from rooftop deck. Easy checkin. Convienent location. The information he provided was very helpful! Food suggestions were spot on and information about things to do were also very helpful. Would def stay again.

    Dee2017-07-05T00:00:00Z
  • Roy's place was perfect for our family of 6. Roy did a great job of communicating with us and giving us ideas for places to eat in the area. A great host. We loved the bakery around the corner. Felt very safe the whole time. The house is very clean and well equiped. The patio on the roof is amazing. This was our first visit and first stop on our CR vacation; La Fortuna and Ray have set the bar high. When we visit La Fortuna in the future we will book Ray's place again. Thank you Roy!

  • This place is a wonderful option for travelers looking to stay a couple nights in Monteverde. The breakfast buffet was delicious and there were so many choices. The location was great because it was a quick walk to town. It is also near a large grocery store and many restaurants.

    Shelby2017-05-23T00:00:00Z

The walk to the breakfast house goes through a very nice garden, so don’t skip breakfast :) The rooms are clean and the bathroom is spacious. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting to visit the area.

    You will delight in the natural beauty of the mountain setting overlooking the water. Beach house located in a lot of 2.5 acres, it is a very private and secure house overlooking the Golfo and Penisula de Nicoya in Costa Rica.
    The house is on a 2.5 acre lot with an splendid 180 degrees ocean view . The swimming pool is surrounded by flowers, butterflies and birds. The villa has cathedral ceiling in the living area. The full kitchen has granite counter tops. All appliances, pots, silverware and coffeemaker are included in the kitchen. The master bathroom has 2 bowl sinks and windows with a view to the ocean. The master bedroom has two full size beds and the second bedroom has one full size bed and one twin. Both bedrooms have A/C and there are fans all over the house, including the outdoor patio area.
  • The house is awesome for a group of 2 or 4 that has a vehicle. It is 1h away from both Puntarenas and Monteverde. Jose, the host there, was very welcoming and even went to the city with his motorcycle to buy us repellent. The pool is always clean, the house is spacious, has anything you need for cooking, and most importantly, it had an AMAZING view. It's on a hill and ovrelooks the ocean with some islands and peninsulas. This place is great to relax there by the pool or even to drive to a beach nearby. Beautiful nature around! Landscaping is great and you feel in paradise!

    Radostin2015-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • This place is STUNNING. I cannot emphasize enough how beautiful this setting is. The pictures look nice, but they do not do it justice. The view is truly incredible. The location is in a small little coastal town, with only locals, so if you're looking for a non-touristy destination, this place is for you! We ate ceviche at this wonderful little place down the road (out of someone's home) and it was the best ceviche I've ever had. Helpful if you speak Spanish because the caretaker only spoke Spanish--he was so wonderful and kind! He also had adorable kids who said "hola" to us on several occasions. Luis was very communicative ahead of time and very helpful with directions. The place was spacious, clean and very comfortable. And the pool was amazing. Truly incredible to be in the pool up in the mountains. This place was a pretty short 40 minute drive to Puntarenas, where we took the ferry across the gulf one day to Tortuga Island. Definitely go here if you want a remote, local, and incredibly gorgeous destination! We would love to come back someday!

  • Tuvimos muy buena atención de parte de Luis Carlos y Elton (el cuidador). La casa es preciosa y está situada estratégicamente para tener esa hermosa vista. Que es Maravillosa!!! Fuimos además cn una persona en silla de ruedas y la casa es ideal. El camino de subida de unos 400mts si está dañado y no lo sube cualquier carro, si no es carro 4x4, al menos debe tener un motor bien fuerte para subirlo. Encontramos mal la suciedad de la piscina que le faltaba tratamiento, lo cual fue atendido amablemente de parte de ambos. Mis recomendaciones -como en otros comentarios- son mejoras en el aire acondiconado del cuarto por la piscina, pues no tiene control y mis tios adultos mayores no podian subirse en nada para hacerlo manualmente; Luego, el calor del área sala/comedor es excesivo y creo que podrian tener ventiladores de pared o parecido para lograr un poco de ventilación, pues los actuales están tan arriba, que no logran ventilar del todo, pero creo q eso lo podrian solucionar porq me parecen detalles. La casa y la atención fueron como esperaba. Volvería sin duda a este lugar hermoso a descansar y disfrutar de la vista.

    Susana2015-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Casa Celajes was great and so was Luis Carlos. The house is just lovely and in a great setting. By far the best bit of the house is the pool with the most amazing views over the Nicoya Peninsula and such beautiful sunsets. The house is set up a hill in a small fishing village. If you want to be away from the tourists then this place is great. You need a 4x4 to get up to the house. Best to have your own car as there's not much around that is walking distance. Having said that in the village we bought the most amazing prawns and fish that they had just caught. Unfortunately we didn't have time as we cooked ourselves and watched the sunset a lot and just chilled by the pool, but we saw a few local (just down the hill in the village), very cool looking restaurants that we would have loved to try out. There are small little convince stores near by as well but no supermarkets or beach too close. The house didn't have wifi, which is lovely to switch off but we found a little wifi cafe just a 10min drive away who were really nice. During the day the little swallows dip in the pool to drink while you lie there watching them and at night the bats dip on the pool right next to you. You can also see some wildlife in the garden and pick lemons and papayas from the garden. The family who help with the house live next door and were great and so friendly and helpful. They had picked lemons from the tree for us, had got some local fish for us and left water cooling in the fridge for our arrival. We stayed here as an alternative to staying in Monteverde after doing some tours during the day, only 1.30hr drive away and MUCH better weather just a short distance away (the drive is so beautiful but do during daylight to be safe). We also then drove to Santa Teresa from Casa Celajes after so it was a good spot to stop in-between. Would definitely recommend this place if you are looking for somewhere relaxing, rural, great views, sunsets, star gazing, non touristy and with a nice pool :)

    Karis2015-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful family friendly home.

    Shon2018-04-12T00:00:00Z
  • You leave the main road unto a secondary road then unto a dirt road and then unto a relatively rough private entrance of a few hundred meters (4X4 recommended) to find a little paradise ! We were a little early with the intention of storing a few things in the refrigerator and coming back later. But Elton, the carekeeper and his wife were very friendly and warm and made us fell at home immediately. This is a secluded area with a million dollar view. Make sure to bring everything you need for your stay. It was clear that there was no wifi when we booked but for us this would have been a necessity had we stayed longer. All in all very pleasant

    Claude2018-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • The view was more beautiful than the pictures. Definitely worth the money if you don't mind being away from modern stores or restaurants. It was about a 30 minute drive to a very small market and a little less to a restaurant called Restaurante Pica Pica (we didn't go but saw it). We cooked every meal in and got fish from a local market (ask the caretaker to take you there). Be aware that only the master bathroom has hot water and only the bedrooms have air conditioning. There was plenty of airflow through the house though. At least for the guest bedroom and bathroom you need to be okay with a small amount of insects. Both open to the outside. The drive up to the house is very rough and steep, any low vehicle would not have made it up. We had a AWD Rav 4 which did just fine. If it rains do not expect to get up the hill without a AWD vehicle. The caretaker doesn't speak much English at all so be prepared for that. I was able to have him get his friends to take us out on a small fishing boat for a couple hour tour of the bay, that cost us around 60 Colones. Overall I would do it again.

    The studio is a cozy upstairs space surrounded by tropical trees and looking over green pastures. Equipped with a king size bed, refrigerator, microwave oven, coffee maker, kettle and a full bath with hot water. Comfort and peace in the cloud forest.
    The Studio Apartment is upstairs and independent of the main house, with forest & garden views from the large space. A comfy and warm atmosphere will make you feel at home. The apartment has one king size bed, fridge, microwave, small toaster oven, coffee maker and all needed kitchen utensils. The spacious bathroom has hot water and soft towels. There are beautiful gardens at our home and around the neighborhood. We are close to the cloud forest and hiking in Monteverde, the restaurants and shops of downtown Santa Elena, and everything in between. It is an easy walk into town, or a local bus or taxi ride to most destinations. If possible we are happy to pick you up or give you a lift. There is private parking behind a gate off the the main road if you have a car, but it is a nice walk into town or on nearby trails through the forest. Weekly & monthly rentals on various rental units. Monteverde is a magical place of rainbows and sunsets. Hiking in the cloud forest is unique. This area is home to three very important Costa Rican reserve: the Biological Reserve of Santa Elena, the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve and the Children's Eternal Rain Forest. Together they all make up over 30,000 hectares of protected primary forest in the Tilaran mountain range.This is one of the most biodiverse places on the planet - and you can choose from a great diversity of activities, restaurants and forest experiences while you are here.
  • Oscar is the best! He picked me up late from the bus station in town and drove me straight to his home. Each morning, I sat down with Oscar over coffee and he made the two of us breakfast. He shared stories about his family and his travels. I truly enjoyed this time with him. I was traveling alone, so Oscar became my personal concierge. He scheduled all of my activities in Monteverde (horseback riding, coffee tour, night forest tour, etc) - and even coordinated my travel to La Fortuna the next day. The one warning is that this place is in the woods, so if you're afraid of bugs or spiders, then this place may not be for you. However, if you are in Monteverde, then that's what you should expect anywhere. I highly recommend staying here and getting to know Oscar!

    David2013-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • I enjoyed staying with Oscar so much, that I booked a second night!

    David2014-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Larry was the ultimate host and ambassador in Monteverde!! He went above and beyond in every circumstance to give us tips, show us some of his 'hidden gems' and help us in any way he could! His personal touch made our trip to Monteverde a huge success. We really wished we could have stayed much longer! The Casa Balbi studio is extremely clean & comfortable, as well as spacious and very attractive!! It has everything you need and more. The property and the views are spectacular and the location is perfect. Close to town so that everything is within very easy reach, but private enough that you can get peace and quiet and enjoy the nature right out side your door. We had great sleeps here! We loved the king sized bed which was so comfortable!! We can't wait to come back to monteverde and stay at Oscar and Larry's place again!!

    Kate2016-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Larry (Oscars' son) was so incredibly helpful. We didn't do a ton of research prior to arriving in Monte Verde and had a few suggestions from friends. However, Larry gave us numerous tips and lined up all our transport and activities and made everything seamless. There was so much to see and do! Larry made us feel so welcome. Accommodations were clean and simple, everything you would need is available. We would recommended this rental to any friends or family as well. Overall we were highly impressed with customer service and would love to come back.

    Theresa2017-03-25T00:00:00Z
  • Was a very cool little studio apartment on a very beautiful piece of land would definitely stay again! It's a little bit of a walk into town or like a $3 taxi ride which they are more than willing to call for you! Everyone was very nice and helpful, they made sure everything went smoothly!

    Ka2016-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • We met Oscar's son, Larry, who was very helpful & informative! He welcomed us and gave a map of monteverde, and a little binder full of some recommendations for the area. the Monteverde area is a little confusing so the map helped us a lot. He pointed out all the best spots around and explained them all, helped us with any questions we had and even helped us get reservations for the Selvatura ziplining & hanging bridges! Extremely helpful and very nice guy. The studio has a homey feel & a nice view out the front door. If you're really uncomfortable with bugs this might not be the place for you, we found a scorpion in our bathroom and my boyfriend put it outside before we realized it had a bunch of babies on its back and they all crawled away outside! Pretty cool to see but make sure you have someone in your group that is brave enough to deal with critters!! But if you're coming to stay in the mountains of Costa Rica you should expect such visitors anyways :) I would definitely recommend this place!!

    Monteverde, Puntarenas, Costa Rica

    Apartment is first floor of owners' home (owners live on the second floor) in quiet, rural setting, surrounded by nature. Contains queen-sized bed & twin bunk beds (which can be separated), a good-sized bathroom with running hot water, well-supplied kitchenette, parking, and wifi.
    The apartment has a big front porch with a hammock, which guests are welcome to use. From its elevation of 1390 meters (4560 feet) the apartment's sliding glass doors open out to a view of the Gulf of Nicoya, partially concealed by the abundant plant life on the hill below the house. The house is located on 3/4 acre of forest, banana plants, organic vegetable garden, and flowers, and is a wonderful place for a private retreat or simply to spend a quiet night after enjoying the sights of the area all day.
    The neighborhood is rural and the people are friendly and helpful. Just down the road is a Canyoning Tour where visitors can rappel down a series of waterfalls. The Monteverde Extremo Canopy Tour is about a kilometer away. Santa Elena is only three kilometers away and boasts numerous restaurants, souvenir shops, tourist information offices, and even some night life!
  • We were so thankful for the warm welcome from Hector and Emily and the perfect directions to their home. The drive from Fortuna/Arenal was as expected over rocky mountainous terrain, but very beautiful views and helped by the very detailed information that Emily provided. We had it printed out with us which was very helpful. The space we stayed in was clean and the fresh fruit just wonderful. Emily went out of her way to help us book a great guide, a personal friend of theirs, for our hike through Monteverde Cloudforest. We even got to see some beautiful quetzals! They also arranged for our tour at El Trapiche, a wonderful coffee/chocolate/sugarcane tour. That area is very mountainous and like others have said, we were so grateful for our 4x4 rental car. We enjoyed the view from their top balcony that looks out over treetops. Beautiful! After reading lots of reviews about how friendly Hector and Emily are, we can add our voices of agreement! They are a wonderful couple!

  • Hector et Emily sont vraiment des personnes formidables. Ils nous ont accueilli avec des fruits frais et ils étaient toujours disponible pour répondre à nos questions ou juste pour discuter. L'appartement était parfait avec tout les accessoires de base pour la cuisine. Le lit était très confortable et la douche avec eau chaude. La vue de la cuisine, wow !!! Déshumidificateur fourni, très pratique, car très humide dans Monteverde. WiFi excellent. C'est notre coup de coeur Airbnb de notre voyage au COSTA-RICA. Thanks again Hector and Emily, it was a pleisure to met you. Pura Vida

    Yannick2018-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Had a great but short stay at Hector and Emily's place. The house was clean and as described in the listing. Emily and Hector were very nice and had great suggestions for things to do and places to eat. They booked a great canopy tour (zip-line) for us. When we arrived there was fresh fruit and cold water in the refrigerator. I would stay here again if I return. You do nee (Website hidden by Airbnb) to get to their house, but you need one for driving anywhere in the Santa Elena / Monteverde area as none of the roads outside of the towns are paved.

    Stephen2017-04-10T00:00:00Z
  • Emily and Hector were wonderful! They were extremely helpful in every way. They have a collection of brochures from some of their favorite businesses in town, many of which comes with a discount for being cool enough to know Hector. The space was spotless and comfortable. There is no climate control, but the weather is perfect. The shower is spacious, the water is hot and the pressure is strong. The queen bed is comfortable and the pillows are soft. Don't miss out on this comfortable apartment and very lovely couple.

    MonaLisa2016-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • Hector & Emily's place was lovely! We thoroughly enjoyed the fruit plate they left for us. Seeing the motmot bird and sunset from their place was awesome. We will definitely rent a 4X4 if we ever come back to the Monteverde area - those roads are no joke!

    Rachel2017-04-04T00:00:00Z
  • The Hideout on the Hill is in a beautiful secluded location. Lots of privacy. The views are gorgeous. We did encounter a few more bugs than we had expected but Hector and Emily were to hospitable and accommodating about the situation. The studio is exactly how it is described. Hector and Emily even left a plate of fresh cut fruit to welcome us.

    Stefanie2018-06-29T00:00:00Z
  • The place is a little tricky to reach but so worth it.

    Alexandre & Catherine2017-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • What a Beautiful place. We had such a good time staying here. Emily was lovely and the place is very spacious & clean! The best views looking over the Nicoya Gulf. Highly recommended!

  • The home in Monteverde is absolutely stunning. Well-marked paths make it easy to find, and the host was always available if we had questions or wanted recommendations. The home is just enough outside of town for you to can appreciate all the natural beauty. of the area The home itself was well-set up for up to 5 guests and we felt very safe the whole time we were there. I would recommend having a car as it is a bit of a walk from town.

    Sam2017-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful Experience! Casa Amanda is cozy, elegant, and spacious. Gracious hosts made it known they were available. House is walking distance to the National Park.

    Jonathan2017-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Magnifique maison séjour très agréable et reposant. Les ustensiles pour cuisiner sont en revanche très basiques, il faut donc se limiter au très basique en cuisine. Rien qui puisse en revanche gâcher votre séjour dans cette jolie maison.

    Luciana2017-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • Though I didn't stay anywhere else in Monteverde, my guess is that it'd be extremely hard to top our stay at Selena's place. Selena's place is exactly as described and her communication is fantastic - zero complaints. By far, the fireplace is its best feature - an absolutely perfect way to finish up a day, and much needed given the weather. I'd definitely recommend Casa Valentina to anyone looking for an authentic and real stay - her place is exactly what ABnB is all about...especially the driveway :)

    Yves2017-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • If you come to Monteverde, Casa Valentina is the place to stay. Close to the Cloud Forest! beautiful home, beautiful location! Host was so amazing!! Even fresh baked banana bread waiting for us on arrival!! loved it!!

    Jyllian2018-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing views -especially from loft window. Location is great and the house is cool.

    Kristin2018-03-27T00:00:00Z
  • Love this place! Would definitely come back next year!

    Gunter2017-06-19T00:00:00Z
  • It is a very beautiful house with an amazing view. Very spacious and comfortable. Be aware that if you do not rent a car -- this might not be the house for you. Everything is almost at least 3 miles away. Rainy season is also not very fun - especially when there is no power. We didn't have power / insulation / heat for the two nights that we stayed and some of us got colds as a result. Overall very beautiful and wish we came at a different time of year. Host was very reasonable and cooperative - responds promptly. She probably should've left more candles and firewood since she knew the power went out often though.

  • Jonathan was awesome and truly cared about every individual at his Hostel. Everyone who worked there was warm and welcoming, and made my time in Costa Rica wonderful!

    Erika2016-12-13T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay here! We got a room on 2nd floor, and although you could hear the wind pretty good through the roof we kinda liked that. The breakfast is so and so, but you will enjoy the lovely hummingbirds, colourful birds, cute squirrels and elusive monkeys. The host provided help with everything, from a baby bed for our 1-year-old and letting us borrow a pair of jackets, to sights in the area and booking our further transportation. Greatly appreciated!

    Carina2017-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • This was a wonderful, small hotel. From the ad it seemed like it would be more hostel like but it was in fact quite a roomy space. The hosts were great and even helped us setup a tour that we had neglected during the planning stage of our trip.

    Nicholas2016-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay!

    Lars2017-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • The Mankin house is awesome! Jonathan helped us with EVERYTHING!! It is in a perfect location if you like quiet/private places but it is also walking distance to restaurants, shops, and my favorite the best sunset I have ever witnessed is literally a 3 minute walk! I highly recommend this place!

    Wesley2017-11-29T00:00:00Z
  • Loved this lodge! Best place we stayed in Costa Rica! They put watermelon out in the morning so monkeys come up and hang out while you eat breakfast. Staff was super-friendly and accommodating.

    My place is good for families (with kids) that like the outdoors and farm atmosphere. We are surrounded by nature and farm animals are close by to go see first hand. An excellent place for hiking and enjoying the views. There is enough privacy that you can enjoy your own time and space, but offer any assistance. Also the washer and dryer allows for not having to pack a large amount of clothing and to dry them out after a rainy walk through the cloud forest. A crib is available if needed.
    Our cottage was originally built in 1964 for families of hired help that worked on the farm. It had several additions made as some of the families grew and needs changed. Today it has been remodeled, still keeping much of it's rustic charm. Most of the wood structure is made from trees that were on the farm and cut some 50 years ago in the then existing sawmill, where the cheese factory is today. Several places of interest are close by such as the Ficus Trails, Monteverde Biological Preserve, the cheese factory, the Bajo del Tigre trails, and San Luis Community. Arrangements can be easily made to be picked up for other adventure attractions such as the zip lines, canopy tours, horse back riding, bungees, an more that are located North of Santa Elena. The cottage is also within a short walking distance to where you can catch the public bus that runs between Santa Elena and the Monteverde Biological Preserve. You will find posted in the cottage a list of telephone numbers for different services including taxis if needed. The cottage's wrap-around porch allows you to be able to sit and enjoy the different views both of the Pacific Ocean and especially the wildlife such as birds (Brown Jays, Toucans, Quetzals, Black Guans, and Chachalacas) to name a few. Our furry friends are also around though more elusive such as the Agouti, squirrels, Armadillos, Coatis, and and, if you are really lucky, White faced monkeys. Getting to the cottage with your own vehicle is not a problem. even though the road is narrow and rough it's accessible even with a automobile.
    Remember you are staying in a farm surrounded by forests. We have quite a variety of farm animals near the cottage and may go and have a first hand experience getting to know them. Please let me know if you're interested, so I may communicate with my brother to make arrangements. Our family is quite artistic. I am a sculptor, my mother creates beautiful pen and ink drawings of the many towering Strangler Fig trees from on and around the farm, my brother not only cares for the farm animals but also produces cheeses, cans jams and makes unique pine needle baskets, another sibling is a very talented acrylic painter. If your getting hungry and are not feeling in the mood for cooking, there are quite a few restaurants in the vicinity. The best breakfast is at Stella's Bakery, If it's pizza, Tramonti is a great place to go. or Chilean food and excellent chocolates, Café Caburé is the place to go. Both are located a little more than a mile away, in direction of Santa Elena. Another Chilean restaurant that offers the tastiest meal you can get is D'Lucia. To get there you must take the first entrance to the left upon passing hotel El Establo, Panaderia Jimenez and the elementary school of Cerro Plano. This is still before you get to Santa Elena. (Approx. 3 miles from the cottage). In Santa Elena starting with their commercial center, you will find a variety of restaurants, from typical Costa Rican food to a more European style. Tico Rico is on the second floor, located just across from the local bus station. Other restaurants are located next to it and on the first floor as well. In the center of Santa Elena you may find Taco Taco, whose name speaks for itself, Sabor Tico another typical Costa Rican restaurant, as well as Japanese and Chinese restaurants. Banks are also located in Santa Elena. ATM machines are located inside as well as one next to the supermarket. Talking about supermarkets, there is the Whole Foods mini market in Monteverde, across the street from Stella's Bakery, and just a little more than a mile away from the cottage. There you can obtain most of your basic items for your own needs. A good part of the products sold there are produced locally generating a better economy for farmers and housewives. Other supermarkets are in Santa Elena being the two principal ones, Mega Super (in the Santa Elena shopping center) and Super Compro located in the very center of town. There are two pharmacies in Santa Elena. One is VITOSI and the other that has just recently opened provide almost any medication you may need. As for medical attention there is the Costa Rican Social Security clinic, Emergencias Medicas (a private medical attention center) and the Red Cross. Telephone numbers are in the cottage if needed.
  • Great location with amazing views. Very close to the reserve. Alberto and his wife were very helpful and accommodating. The washer/dryer was defiantly a plus.

    Lara2017-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • We had an absolutely wonderful stay! Angelina and Alberto could not be more welcoming, helpful and kind. Their cottage was perfect--cozy and simply, and offered amazing views of the surrounding area. We loved having a chance to learn about the history of Monteverde from a family integral to its creation. Our experience wouldn't have been nearly as special if we hadn't had stumbled across this cottage. Many thanks!

    Hanna2017-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Alberto and his wife were very hospitable. We enjoyed are stay at this charming Monteverde cottage. We can't wait to come back to Costa Rica soon!

    Emily2017-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • The main picture for this listing is exactly what you get. A lovely deck with an ocean view (when the clouds cooperate; but remember, this is a cloud forest :) Inside the cottage it is spacious, clean and well equipped, but rustic. Sleep in two bedrooms with shared access to a single bathroom with a sometimes 'brisk' shower. The living area is comfortable, light and airy with sofa, chairs and dining table. The hosts are gracious and accommodating, providing us with fresh banana bread upon our arrival. We spent so much time chatting when we arrived we forgot some of the basics like 'where is the key' and 'what is the WiFi password', issues quickly resolved once realized; their separate home is a few steps away. Hiking in the Reserve was wonderful, as was sitting on the deck reading and watching/listening to the birds. Relaxing. This location is well situated between the Reserve and Santa Elena. There are a few stores and restaurants in Monteverde, all of good quality, and a larger variety in Santa Elena. Roads to the area are unpaved and can be aggressive :) except within Santa Elena, but easily driven. Wimpy city drivers need not apply; it frustrates us when we have to crawl along behind you. Come to Monteverde because you love being outdoors and exploring, and are not afraid to take some personal responsibility and make things happen for yourself. If you want it presented to you, book a nice tour from the fancy hotel.

    Charles2016-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our three night stay at Alberto's which included Christmas Eve. The house is in a great location for the local parks but just enough outside of town to feel like you're "getting away from it all". It is also on located on a Panthera site, which we thought was very cool!

    Halley2017-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay with Alberto! The house is in a beautiful spot, with beautiful views, and Alberto is there to help with anything you need. The house is very close to the Monteverde Preserve which was the main reason we stayed there. We saw lots of great birds from the porch as well. We were sad to leave this great spot, hope we can come again soon!

    Miles2017-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • We had an incredible time staying at the cottage. The banana bread was incredible, the view from the hammock couldn’t be beat, and the local knowledge passed on by Alberto made it even more special. We would definitely stay here again.

    Sam2018-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great place! The hosts greeted us upon check in and even baked fresh banana bread for us! The place was very clean, cozy, and quiet. It is walkable to a few close places, but otherwise it is a short drive to anywhere in Monteverde.

    Couples, Friends and Families will enjoy this property. Beautiful wood made cabin located just 10 minutes away from La Fortuna, surrounded by nature and wildlife, lovely terrace all around the house with hammocks with view to the rain forest. In the house you will find two bedrooms with air conditioning, a small kitchen combined with a living room and WIFI. Amazing place to enjoy an original Costa Rica vacation just minutes away from all the popular tourist attractions near to Arenal Volcano.
    Rural living with fresh air and surrounded by nature. Very quiet and GREEN!
  • The house was great, just what we were expecting from the listing. The kitchen was well appointed with plenty of crockery and a two-ring burner (no oven). The coffee machine and wifi were a bonus! The local dogs enjoyed visiting us, but they were pretty cute and friendly (and very timid so they would be easily chased away if you didn't want them around). The location (about 15 minutes out of town) was perfect for our family, but younger people may find it a little too quiet and away from all the action of La Fortuna which is a bustling town with a pretty lively night life. Eder was very helpful, meeting us in town and taking us out to the property to show us everything we needed to know. Eder also helped us to arrange some local activities, and we'd recommend the Sky Adventure zip lining, Desafio white water rafting and the chocolate tour. We couldn't have asked for a better local guide to the La Fortuna area than Eder, and he spent time showing us good restaurants and places to see on a local map. Eder definitely goes above and beyond what is normally expected of an AirBnB host, and we really appreciated all his help and advice. Thanks Eder, we had a fabulous stay in La Fortuna!

    Cheryl2016-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • This cabin was the perfect getaway in La Fortuna. Only 10mins from town and Eder and Allen were extremely helpful with anything we needed. We will stay here again next time we are in La Fortuna!

    Jaclyn2016-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you for great hospitality and for the nice place to stay. The original place appeared is not available cause of the road condition. Some tree has been fallen at the road and it was required some time to fix the road. Eder was very humble and nice person he brought us to other property 1km north from La Fortuna. The place was fantastic. New A\C in each room. Big glass walls. Very clean inside. In the morning we had a surprise outside on the back yard. There was a table with fruits on it and 20-30 different colorful birds were feeding there. Also there was nice swimming pool and barbecue place. A lot off different trees on the property - sweet limes, cinnamon, Dylan-Dylan - smells incredible. We liked the place very much and recommend it. Eder is nice and helpful guy. He knows the area and activity very well and helped us a lot with information. Thank you.

    Dmitry2015-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house in a great location! Close to town but still very private and cozy. Eder was a fantastic host!

    Courtney2016-05-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had a nice stay, and Eder was very helpful with providing information about the house and Fortuna activities. The house was only about 4 km outside Fortuna in a more rural setting. The view from the large back porch was beautiful, and there is a nice trail leading down to a waterfall and small pool. This is a very good location from which to enjoy all of the activities in the Fortuna area.

    William2017-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Eder did a great job of getting us set up in the house, and explaining the area and local attractions. He checked in with us, and helped with anything we asked. The house is great. We are a young family with a 2 year old, and we loved having a spacious place where we could all relax outside and our daughter could run and play in the grass. The pools didn't have water in them when we arrived due to all the leaves around, but Eder said we could fill them if we wanted to use the pool. We saw Toucans, Parrots, and many other beautiful birds in the trees around the house. We loved watching all the birds. More than we saw taking the hanging bridges tour. The house is very functional inside, and provides a comfortable area to relax at night or when its hot and humid outside. Would stay here again.

    Justin2016-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • Really great spot. Helpful owners. Hammocks were great. Good location. Very very good. Stay here.

    Chris2016-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • This 3 night stay was AWESOME. We met Jorge who bringed us a brand new fridge when the one we had stopped working it was super fast. Carmen next door is fantastico! The Casa was clean, cozy and comfortable. We felt like at home. It's also well furnished with everything you need. The AC was working super good. Eder was always free to help us with our many question and made some great suggestion of activity and can even book it for you. Overall great stay will come back here someday!

    Everything you need with a host & team available anytime for whatever you need. Pay Hostel prices and get your own private place. Private bathroom, 2 bedrooms. 1 Queen Bed and 1 Twin Bed. Close to town, no car needed. Walk to Santa Elena in less than 5 minutes. Beautiful views of the forest from the kitchen. Beautiful Views of the Gulf of Nicoya right outside the apartment.
    Warm, safe, cozy, affordable and close to town. This is a small cabin comfortable for 3 people, there is also a slight steep hill up from Santa Elena if you are walking some people have mentioned its steep. We are in the mountains so if you are without a car, please expect some hills!
  • Un lugar muy limpio pero algo pesado de llegar por que la calle es de subida. El centro del pueblo está a 5-10 min caminando, la gente es muy amable y siempre se ofrecen a ayudar. Muy fácil de encontrar la casa y Maria siempre estuvo al pendiente de nosotros. El lugar es muy sencillo y tiene las cosas básicas.

    Carlos2018-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • Maria met us in downtown Santa Elena and showed us right to the apartment. She gave restaurant and activity recommendations with tips about the public transportation. It was so nice to be welcomed and informed in this way. She checked up on us throughout our stay and we were safe and comfortable. The eggs and coffee she provided were a huge plus. She was very kind and hospitable. The apartment had everything we needed and was very clean: hot water, blankets, soap, and dishes. Great value!!

    Kelsey2017-03-28T00:00:00Z
  • Maria is THE BEST host! She was prompt, efficient and thorough with communication. She booked every activity that we did, and the transportation to it. All for which was very appreciated! We had NO disappointments in Monte Verde. Maria's place is quaint, comfy and perfect for the travelers looking for a soft place to land their head after a long day of being out and about! This town is very "hill-y" and Maria's place is on a pretty steep road, but it's absolutely walkable. The distance to town, restaurants, coffee, beer and shops is easily less than 10 minutes. We felt very safe here.

    Josette2017-05-26T00:00:00Z
  • Maria’s place was really close to downtown, very walkable. Secluded, safe, and just the right amount of amenities! Great for the value, for sure.

    Joe2017-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • Cette endroit nous a permi de vivre un sejour des plus agréable dans la magnifique region de Monteverde. La vue sur le village est magnifique et l'endroit est tres propre! Maria a été une hôte formidable et super sympa! Pura Vida

    Kevin2017-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay. Maria was very accommodating for our arrival time which we really appreciated and picked a central location to meet which is helpful. Her place is maybe a 5-10 min walk to downtown Santa Elena so that was great as well, food and nightlife were very close by, and she was very responsive before we left for our trip and while at her place. Place has a nice kitchen so you can also cook at home which we did the last morning we were there because we left so early

    Michelle2017-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Maria's place was just what her ad stated. It is perfect for a couple or a couple and a single person. It was very clean and we had everything we needed. Thanks for the coffee. The location is perfect for walking into town where you can pick up supplies to cook with or some wine to enjoy on her wonderful patio. If you love bird watching, this is the place for you. She has tons of birds and we even got to know our neighbors who were staying in the front cabin over happy hour cocktails and bird watching. We arrived late and Maria answered our call quickly and we were able to get in right away. We highly suggest checking out Maria's place if you are visiting Monteverde.

    Jana2018-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Her place is on the top of a pretty big hill, it’s a great location! Its a 5 minute walk to downtown Santa Elena and Maria was so helpful with everything!

  • Super cute cottage and incredibly clean. By far one of the best deals out there. In addition to the cottage, Christina was 100% friendly and helpful- going so far as to offer transportation and book tours. Loved my visit!

  • Nice little cabin in the woods. Very clean and Cristina is an excellent host. Expect bugs, you're in the cloud forest :)

  • My wife and I stayed for four nights in January 2018. This was a great value--the house was small and cozy but had all the amenities we desired--microwave, stove, refrigerator. We saw several birds outside of our window. The location worked well for us. The wind can be very strong at night! Cristina was very kind and helpful; she can also provide great tips for adventures in the area. Overall, we had a great stay and would recommend this place for future travelers.

    El Pizote House is located in the heart of Monteverde,surrounded by forest, private trails and an incredible observation deck. We are located 4km from Santa Elena Town and 2km from the Monteverde Reserve.
    El Pizote House has one room with a queen bed, another one with two single beds, living room with a big sofa, a nice view to the forest, full kitchen, one bathroom with hot shower, a small deck and private parking, the house is surrounded by forest, trails and an incredible observation deck.
    The Green Paradise houses are located on private property, so the houses are very safe and very few people have access to this place.
  • Juan's place is perfectly located away from the town and nestled within the forest. We loved being able to take a walk on the trails that surround the place. Check-in was simple, so no worries if you are arriving late. There are 3 houses on the property so it is important to know the name of your place. It was chilly at night, so long pants and a sweatshirt are necessary. The beds were super comfy with lots of warm blankets. The washer and dryer are AMAZING to have!

  • Monteverde is an extraordinary place. This beautiful house is located right outside of the town, which makes access to restaurants and stores very easy, but also puts you in a quiet, serene, natural setting. The house has many, large windows giving you beautiful views of the surrounding forest. Juan was very helpful in answering all of our questions, and he even took the time to check in with us to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. We loved everything about our stay and are already planning our return.

  • Beautiful home that is secluded but only about a 10 minute drive into town! I highly recommend this place

    Chad2018-07-05T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay in Monteverde!

    Tyler2018-06-28T00:00:00Z
  • The house was perfect for what we wanted. A little place away from the noise surrounded by the forest. The trails were wonderful to walk around day or night to see birds and bugs. The host was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this place if you want your own private nature reserve to explore.

    Shannon2018-07-02T00:00:00Z
  • When you look for a quiet place to stay in monteverde, look no futher. The grounds surrounding the cottage are amazing. We got to see coatis and armadillos right in front of the house. Beautiful birds and butterflies. The cottage feels spacious because of the high ceiling and large windows. The whashing machine (only cold water) and dryer were necessary in these wet surroundings. The kitchen is equipped for basic cooking. There is no bathroom sink so you have to use the shower or kitchen. There is only warm water in the shower. Juan is a great host, quick responder, good tips for where to go. The trip to santa Elena takes about 10 minutes by Car, Skywalk about 20 minutes.

  • We had a fantastic stay in this house! It is located in a very quiet area, in the middle of nature, but still very close by all activities in the surroundings. We really liked walking in the surroundings. The house was very clean and well equipped. Juan was available and made everything to make us feel comfortable. Thanks a lot!

    Elvina2018-04-26T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful secluded location, surrounded by beautiful wildlife (and critters). The trails were lovely (spotted a few blue morphos); we highly suffers the lookout point and the climbing trees! The cabin is very central to restaurants and sites to see. Very kind and considerate host, we will be back again!
