Property description

This is the nicest private property in the area!
We built our house in Monteverde with the goal of owing a second home that we could share with friends and family while relaxing in a beautiful garden in one of Costa Rica's most beautiful places.

The spacious cottage is fully equipped; has a great room with tall wood ceilings, a complete kitchen, dining table, and living room area that opens to a large window overlooking the forest.

The house was built following the local rustic architecture but it has been our vision and goal to have a cozy and unique house were one can relax after a long day hiking .

In addition to the house, we have built a wonderful private garden where you can see a large variety of birds and animals.

We welcome you to stay here to taste nature at it's best.

Car: Recommended

Set atop the spine of Costa Rica’s continental divide, Monteverde is a world above the coastal towns that dot the country's famous shoreline. It is a place of cloud forests and coffee plantations, monkeys, mist, and friendly locals.

Due to its high altitude – some 4,662 ft (1,440 m) above sea level – Monteverde is privileged to receive a steady supply of clouds and the life-giving moisture that they contain. This moisture, often in the form of fog, catches on the branches of the tallest trees and drips down to the other organisms below. This helps to support a complex and far-reaching ecosystem, one that harbors over 100 species of mammals, 400 species of birds, tens of thousands of insect species, and over 2,500 varieties of plants, 420 of which are orchids alone.

Visitors can explore this internationally recognized environment from trails and trams, along canopy tours or inside museums.

We welcome you to our property and advice you to plan on spending at least a few days to adventure through this verdant and mountainous world. PURA VIDA!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Our family is originally from San Jose. For several years, we visited Monteverde and dreamed with having our own piece of heaven in the Costa Rican Cloud Forest. In 2007, we bought this property and in 2008 we built our first cabin. We now have 4 cabins/cottages in the property.

Why the Owner Chose Monteverde, Costa Rica:
We have almost one hectare (aprox 2.47 acres) of garden. Our house has several features that distinguish this property from any other in the Monteverde area. We built our cottage for our personal use following traditional local architecture. This is an example of ecoturism at it's best. The property is located within walking distance of several restaurants, coffee shops, museums and the local cheese factory. We are located 5 minutes away from the main town (Santa Elena) where you can find a large variety of restaurants, gas station, banks, etc. We are also located 5 mins away from the Monteverde Cloud Forest National Park.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
- Access to our private garden - Bedrooms and bathrooms are cleaned every day with exception of Sundays and holidays (no extra fee). - With advance notice, we can arrange all your tours while in the Monteverde area. - We can help you with your travel arrangements in other locations of Costa Rica if necessary. - We work closely with a rent a car agency in case you would like to rent a car while in Costa Rica. - We offer wifi internet access
