  • Awesome stay in August with young children!

    "Everyone told us, "Oh. That's the rainy season." Sure it rained most afternoons but it was short lived. I was worried it would be hot. Not the case! It was in the low 60s to low 80s but humid. My wife was worried our 5 & 6 year old kids would be bored after a few days. 30 minutes a day of screen time was plenty for them! We spent two of our six days at the house on the upper porch, only leaving for dinner, and had a great time with WONDERFUL quality family time!!! We speak enough Spanish to get by out in town and the locals were VERY friendly. The mainstream places all spoke English. Not a problem. If you're having reservations about "the rainy season" or young children, DO NOT WORRY! We had a blast. Also, David is a rock solid wealth of information. Touch base with him if you have any questions and he will steer you straight! Pura Vida"

  • Beautiful views

    "We had a wonderful experience at the house. The location is stunning with a wonderful panoramic view of the valley. The house is very large with lots of room to stretch out and relax. We brought our own food and were a bit worrried we wouldnt have what we needed but were very happy to find the kitchen was fully equipped. The house is very close to Turrialba and has easy access to all kinds of fun activities. We will definitely be returning soon."

  • Truly Unique Mountain Adventure!

    "We were lucky enough to find Finca Good Life, and spend a fantastic two weeks with Michele & Ray, and their menagerie of animals... including 14 goats, 3 and sometimes 4 dogs, 4 geese, a cat, a rooster and 10 hens. We stayed in their beautiful cabina, and were made to feel like family as they welcomed us into their daily lives. And those goats!!! OMG!!! We learned so much about the goats and their adorable individual personalities! Who knew??!!! We recommend Finca Good Life... if you want a unique, restful, stress free vacation in a peaceful, serene setting!"

  • Paradise and beyond!

    "Paradise Peak villa on Steve and Nancy's "tropical plant finca" was a dream come true. The beauty of the villa, accommedations, amenities and the property all sum up to a magnificent place to stay. There are plenty of activites in the surrounding area; overlooks, historical, rainforest, cloud forest, shops, bars, restaraunts and more. We (my husband and I) enjoyed driving around all the little towns, waving at all the friendly people, relaxing and taking in the gorgeous views from narrow winding mountain roads. We enjoyed all the attention from the 3 lady rotti's as we were missing our own pets. They are super well behaved and friendly. You could see they enjoyed meeting and keeping company with the new guests. Steve and Nancy are super friendly, helpful and interesting people to spend time with. Don't forget to spend time in the tropical gardens on the property and sample friuts straight from the trees. Our 4 nights there were definitely not enough...we didn't want to leave. We will just have to come back soon!"
