Overview

About the property

Experience The Nature!!!

Turrialba is a lovely town that has everything you need. It’s known for the volcano Turrialba and the rivers nearby which are perfect for a rafting adventure.

25 minutes from Turrialba, there’s a place called Atirro. It is surrounded by beautiful nature and the sounds of birds.

If you like action and adventure, try canopying and “fly” over the trees. You can also book a paragliding or canyoning tour. If you are interested in that, we help you to find the perfect offer for you. The mountains around Atirro can be discovered by bicycle or in a walk. Furthermore it is possible to go on a horse ride to see as much as possible of the nature.

If you prefer to relax, enjoy your day by the river.

The house is placed in Atirro. It offers three bedrooms, one with a king size bed, another with a full size bed and the third with two individual beds.

In the TV-room you can find two big couches with sleeping possibility and cable TV, we also have WiFi.

The house has a kitchen that comes with all the equipment you need, a big living room and a terrace with pool table and barbeque area. The laundry room includes a washing machine, a dryer and a lot of space to let your clothes be dried by air. In the big garden you can find fruit trees and organic planting. During your stay you can use all vegetables that are growing there: celery, tomato, spring onion, chili, zuchini, hemstitch, beans, salad, spinach, sugar beet, cucumber, basil, yucca and corn.

We offer a delicious breakfast or a lunch/dinner, just tell us what you’d like to eat and we prepare it for you.

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

Goretty was so helpful (and understanding when within a few hours of our arrival, we broke a few things! :-( ). The property is BIG and beautiful, and the grounds are amazing. There is a coffee factory within walking distance where you can get fresh beans or grounds to brew, and a mirador/vista up the hill a little ways that was great for birding and seeing the valley across Turrialba. It was a wonderful time.

Tranquile Home With History

  • 4 of 5

We loved to spend three days in this big historical home with its beautiful unique garden. Yes, this house has some years on its shoulders but we've got a lot of space, a big well equipped kitchen, great beddings, nice working internetaccess and we lived in a safe area with a very friendly and helpful host.

Close by very good hiking trails, vulcanos and historic monuments.

Awesome Tranquil Country Getaway

  • 5 of 5

If you want to connect with those who matter most and get away from the Hustle and bustle of any city, this is your place. Spent a wonderful week with family and children ages 5 and 9, and the setting was perfect. The House is located in Atirro, literally 15 mins from Turriallba ( Big city with everything you need). The house is tucked away in the skirts of a mountain. There are properties near by but you truly have space to yourself. It sits on approximately 7 acres and Gorrety keeps the grounds immaculate. The kids loved the yard which has it's own mini soccer field. Although tucked away, the house is safe ( 3 large dogs roam the property when lights are out, and she will tuck them away at your request), equipped with WiFi, and Cable TV for those who wish to follow world news the old fashion way. You definitely need a car and it should take you 2-3 hrs from San Jose Airport depending on the weight of your foot on the pedal. There is a smaller town about 7 mins away where you can purchase essentials. It is a country home with some years on its foundation, so do not expect the The Monaco or the Ritz. Plenty of nature to see, rivers and the true essence of Costa Rica and it's people. Our host was gracious, attentive and genuine. Internet went down, addressed problem immediately. An excellent stay in a simple but charming country home.

Un lugar tranquilo

  • 4 of 5

Mi familia y yo disfrutamos mucho los dias que estuvimos hospedados en este lugar. Para nosotros fue el lugar perfecto ya que lo ùnico que queriamos era estar "lejos del mundanal ruido" y del ajetreo que significa estar en la ciudad. Goretty fue muy amable al proporcionarnos dos bicicletas, ya que con ellas anduvimos por la zona, que de mas estar decir se presta para realizar este deporte. En cuanto a la propiedad, nos gusto mucho las zonas verdes con que cuenta y la casa como tal, especialmente la antesala, en donde usted simplemente se puede sentar a disfrutar de una buena lectura o ver el jardin. Solo cabe una pequeña observacion, y es que el baño tenìa una pequeña fuga de agua y en lo particular no nos gusta el desperdecio de un recurso tan valioso, màxime cuando hemos visitado otros paises en donde el agua solo se puede consumir si se compra embotellada, situaciòn que gracias a Dios no se da en Costa Rica, porque aqui en la mayorìa de los lugares se puede utilizar el agua directamente del grifo. Recomiendo este lugar para las personas que gozan de la naturaleza.
