Monteverde house description

Casa Arco Iris offers a quiet country retreat for those discerning guests who prefer independence and privacy for their vacation. This charming, European-style, tastefully constructed 3 bedroom house is located on a small organic farm in a rural area just 2 miles from the town of Santa Elena, Monteverde.

The accommodation comprises 3 bedrooms that sleep up to 8 people, 2 bathrooms, a large fully fitted kitchen complete with utensils and a spacious living area. For your comfort you find satellite TV, a DVD player, washer and dryer, telephone, Wi-Fi, and a safe.

A large veranda offers stunning views of the Gulf of Nicoya and outside dining space.
The grounds extend for some 5 acres (2.6 hectares) and encompass: a covered car parking, organic greenhouses, a coffee plantation, chicken and turkey houses, stables with 2 horses and a friendly farm dog.

The immediate gardens are well kept and present a wide selection of tropical flora and fauna, including many orchids. Over the years the wider area has been steadily reforested and as a result is home to many species of wildlife, making it a perfect location for birding.
