  • A Wonderful Experience!

    "My wife and I along with our two children (11 & 13) travelled to Costa Rica in November of 2014. This was our 3rd trip to Costa Rica (previous was ’08 & ’09). One of our goals on this trip was to spend a bit more time in the Turrialba area and to connect more with locals. Also, as an adventurous family (we have a sea kayak company in British Columbia: www.bcseakayak.com), we were keen to do some river rafting. Finding Jose’s “Natural Paradise” was perfect as it seemed to satisfy all these goals. Initial communication with Jose was clear and concise - and gave us confidence to move ahead with more questions before booking. Since Jose and his brother Sergio are guides, they easily organized a rafting trip for us on the Pacuare River (what a great day!!). Staying at the family farm was not only peaceful and relaxing but it allowed us to connect with a kind and wonderful Costa Rican family. This kind of experience is priceless! In learning my kids love soccer (they brought a soccer ball with them…), Sergio was keen to organize a fun soccer match with some of his friends and my kids. Unfortunately the weather didn’t cooperate, as intense rains shut down the field on both days we tried to play. Regardless, the thoughtfulness was greatly appreciated! Relaxing at Natural Paradise, connecting with the Rivera family, experiencing their kind hospitality and partaking in some well-organized adventures was a highlight of our 2014 trip to Costa Rica."

  • Ten stars for a five star rating!

    "We have stayed at VRBO places in a number of places and this is by far the best jewel we have come across. Everything is perfect. Nancy has it decorated beautifully and it is equipped with everything you could ever need. The bed is soooo comfortable. The location is a wonderful temperate climate, there are lots of things to do - we enjoyed Tapanti national park and enjoyed hiking and seeing lots of tropical birds. The property is amazing. Acres and acres of an amazing botanical garden, with lots of trails. The adorable dogs will show you all the paths! We also went to Irazu volcano, again an easy day trip, where we saw beautiful birds, flora and fauna. And the view was amazing. Steve and Nancy are the most gracious hosts. They are totally friendly, knowledgable and even made us fresh buns! We would go back there in an instant, and I don't think I can say that about any other VRBO places I have stayed at - so that says it all! Ross and Liz"

  • Excellent Costa Rica Rental

    "We can't say enough goo things about the rental. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the necessary dishes and cooking equipment as well as spices to cook with. We loved watching the birds just out the window and soaking up the beautiful scenery from the balcony in the mornings and the evenings. We were a group of 6 adults and the place was perfect for all of us. It was a great price for as large of a home as it was. It was also a perfect location."
