To say two months was enough time to soak up Costa Rica, would be untrue. Although our stay was filled with adventure, there was much we left undone. So we begin again to plan another extended stay for sometime in the near future, and we will definitely stay once again at Casa de Megumi. We rented the two bedroom house which met all of our needs, even allowing us to have visitors from Canada. The pool was so refreshing and the continuously changing flora and fauna was a delight. The mango tree just outside our house provided us with fresh mangoes for the duration of our stay. Hisano and Ron are wonderful hosts, arranging a rental car, providing bus schedules and overnight trip planning, cleaning and laundry services and two delicious authentic Japanese meals. If you are looking to experience Costa Rica and its people, you couldn't pick a nicer location. Thanks Hisano and family for everything. Hope to see you again next year, God willing. The Newmans

Owner response: Dear Bob and Maureen, all of us enjoyed having you here and thanks to your encouragement, my mother started drawing pictures vigorously nowadays. After having you here for 2 months, we now feel like missing our family members. Looking forward to seeing you, your sister and brother-in-law, and daughter next year!

Ron & Hisano, Thank you so much for everything you provided during our stay with you in March, 2009. The house was super clean and had everything we needed. You made us feel right at home and part of the family. It was a pleasure meeting your mother and sharing dinner with you on our last night. We will look forward to our next visit! Cheryl & Walt

Owner response: Dear Cheryl and Walt. It was such a pleasure having and getting to know you here. Thanks to your help with watering, our flowers and grass are getting prettier and greener. Look forward to seeing you again soon. Ron and Hisano
Hisano treated us like family during recent visit and even loaned us her personal cell phone for several days. The house was also very comfortable. I highly recommend Case de Meguni to any one going to Atenas.

I would not hesitate to recommend Casa de Mugumi to anyone... we stayed in the stand alone casa with 2 bedrooms. It was super clean and one of the best appointed kitchens that I have been at in our travels in Costa Rica . The Bells are the perfect host...always ready to help with any inquiry.

Owner response: Dear Don and Monique, It was our pleasure meeting and serving you during your stay with us. Our hammocks and pool are waiting for your return. Ron, Hisano and the staff.
Been to Casa de Megumi twice in 2008, and had a wonderful experience during my stay there. I enjoyed the beautiful surrroundings: flower filled gardens, exotic birds, in a stress-free realxing environment. Went for long walks at night and enjoyed the quite charming town of Rio Grande which is close by. The hospitality of the Bells were great, friendly and helpful with all my questions and needs. The casa was comfortable, clean, safe and private. It was close by to beaches, which i took a few day trips to(about one hr) away and close by to the national parks, museums and other points of interests! I had a great experience and excited to return again!

Owner response: Dear Espen, It was so wonderful to have you at our Orchid Room twice last year and we look forward to seeing you again. The sunset you loved is waiting for you daily and you can now swim in the pool!
Last year, my husband and I had an oppportunity to visit Casa de Megumi for two nights and three days. Even though we didn't get there in the best of weather, we loved the tropical atmosphere and surrounding fruit trees. All over the plantation, there were trees filled with fruit, such as bananas and mangos which we enjoyed for breakfast. This fruit was so much better than that of Colorado. The room was very modern, yet had a latin vibe. The area was very peaceful and quite, great for getting away from the busy streets of San Jose. The Bell family treated us as if we were apart of their family, very warm and inviting. Anything we needed, they provided or tried to accomodate the best they could. Mr. Bell made some wonderful homemade bread, which was warm and chewy. All in all, we had a very wonderful experience visiting Costa Rica, and we are making plans to visit again this year. So be ready for us, Bell Family~!

Owner response: Dear Noriko and Grif, We are very happy that you stayed at Casa de Megumi and we could contribute to your pleasure. We look forward to seeing you again this year! Ron, Hisano, and the staff.
We spent 10 days in November, 2008 at this beautiful newly remodeled house. The hosts, the Bells, were warm and cordial and are available for any needs. They had information about sightseeing, points of interest, shopping, etc. The grounds were serene, beautiful and well kept. We experienced the ambience of a true Costa Rican neighborhood. Great value, great people, great place.
