All tiled floors, very new and clean. We are located near Santa Maria Night Walking Tour and Don Juan Coffee Farm & Tours, a bakery (Panaderia Jiminez) and grocery (Super Cedros). Private and secluded houses in a safe and friendly area (tranquil rural setting) near village of Santa Elena with large supermarket and many small restaurants, stores & souvenir shops and places to arrange tours.

Woodworking souvenir shop with free orchid garden within walking distance. Paradise for wildlife watchers and artists - 7 acres of guava trees and many other native berry & fruit trees and bushes bring the animals, birds and butterflies sometimes right past our windows! I often hear the song of the manakin, the bell bird, warblers, toucans and toucanets, motmots, the chitter of the variegated squirrel. There are several cleared paths to walk, one even goes down to the quebrada! Located on a private road off the road to Tilaran and Las Juntas, only 1 1/3 miles from Santa Elena.

                  In the Monteverde area there are 400 species of birds of the 850 species found in Costa Rica. We have spotted many mammals and butterflies on our property as well. A pair of Emerald green toucanets nested in our old century plant. The distinctive 'pong' sound of the bellbird can be heard nearby. So can the 'toledo' of the manakin. Richard can take you on walks down through the forest to our rushing mountain stream with small waterfalls. You may hear coyotes at night; several sizes of agoutis graze through our back garden.
