Check out a video of the property to see the Hot Tub: https://youtu.be/TRMDAiIqhF4
Our cottage features two bedrooms with a queen bed in each. There is a small bath with a shower. The vanity is in the common area, making it easier for a family to prepare for a busy day.
We recently upgraded our kitchen. The kitchen features ceramic tile countertops, modern triple sink, new refrigerator with freezer, hot plate,, toaster oven and microwave. We also have all the necessary glasses, plates, flatware, pots, pans, cooking utensils, etc.
Have coffee on our covered patio where you can relax on comfortable benches or at the table and watch the hummingbirds. Spend a rainy night in the covered hot tub. Have a bottle of wine, and watch the wind blow!
Our local manager can assist with tours to ziplines, forest canopy bridges, and coffee plantations. She is usually available..
Though the house will sleep six, we think four adults is about the maximum that will be comfortable. But the futon in the living room will be comfy for the kids.
The owner of the Quetzal's Nest is a US based tour operator with 24 years experience in Costa Rica. I can assist you with information, transportation, rental cars, or accommodations anywhere in Costa Rica>
We are a married couple 'over 50' I work as a Travel Tour operator specializing in Costa Rica, It is all I have done since 1992, so I know Costa Rica well. My wife is a medical professional at a local hospital. We make our home in New Orleans, and visit Costa Rica as frequently as possible. We are enthusiastic about sharing our favorite destination with fellow travelers. .
Location is the key. You almost couldn't get closer to the reserve without a tent. Most mornings, we walk to the coffee shop outside the reserve to enjoy a latte and watch the dozens of hummingbirds gather at the feeders to compete for breakfast.
This is what Monteverde is all about. A beautiful setting, a friendly local manager, and only a short ride to all of the local area amenities.
We love the quiet and peaceful location. We love coffee on the covered outdoor patio. We are only ½ mile from the Continental Divide. So the wind can howl late at night! But that is all part of the rustic feel.
We love our hot tub too. This is the perfect place to recover from a long day of hiking or adventure. Our favorite time is during an evening rain. You grab a class of wine, and watch the rain fall, and the trees sway. All safe in the hot tub under the covered patio.
I have had the pleasure of staying at this cute little house on several occasions thru the years. I loved the homey feel,the ease of having the property manager close. Walking distance to the reserve and the beautiful nature surrounding it.
We loved this place! Fully equipped kitchen with everything our family needed. However most mornings we simply took the short walk up to the cafe near the reserve entrance for coffees and pastries which we ate while watching the dozens of hummingbirds that come to the feeders every morning. (Pat's suggestion)
The wifi worked well & was fast enough for the kids to watch movies on their tablets. The house was clean and comfortable. The woman who manages the house was very friendly, and it was nice to know she was close by if we needed anything.
We booked directly with Pat through his company Costa Rica Travel Exchange which worked really well. He helped us with a couple of other aspects of our trip we hadn't thought of. He also hooked us up with an awesome zipline tour and horseback ride.
We hated to leave!
We had an absolute blast in Monteverde.. This house is in a beautiful location just out of town, near the reserve, a hummingbird garden, a rope bridge rainforest tour. Great outdoor hot tub in a tropical paradise. Pat the owner was super nice.. Gave us easy directions and instructions, and helped us book stays in other parts of Costa Rica as well. Incredible week; can't wait to go back. Thanks Pat!
We are a family of five who chose this property, and regret doing so. The location is about 3km from center of city, and on very poor roads. The home was very smelly, stale bedsheets and towels. Bathroom was dirty, with ants and insects around. The bathroom flush would not work. The faucet had very luke warm water.The roof was very noisy, and the three nights we were there, no one could sleep, with constant noise of rain and heavy winds pounding the roof. Curtains would not hold in place. Most importantly, we had frequent power cuts, and WIFI, microwave, coffee maker and anything that relied on power would not work.
This is a property that is not worth staying, if you are looking to have a pleasant stay.
The house is very close to the Reserve (easily walkable). Our family of 5 had plenty of room inside of the house and great outdoor space to relax and play. We did not have a car, but relied on the bus and taxis, and we walked a lot. This worked fine, but it would be easier to get into town (a long walk) more often with a car. There are lots of opportunities for viewing wildlife from and near the house. It was a joy to work with Pat, the owner. I highly recommend this house, whether you are looking for a nice place for a getaway for 2, or to accommodate a family.
My 17 year old daughter and her best friend joined us for a wonderful three night stay in Monteverde/Santa Elena at the Quetzal's Nest, a cute private Home only walking distance from the entrance to the Monteverde Forest Reserve. The home was well maintained, worked well for our purposes and couldn't be more convenient! The hot Tub was great too!! The Owner left great instructions for all aspects of the Home and there was also a local manager available to deal with any issues though we did not need to call during our stay.
Although it was nice to get away from TVs, computers, etc. for a few days, it was also handy to be able to connect to email just to check on things at Home over the WiFi internet signal in the House.
Only wish we could have stayed longer!!!!!!
The Quetzal's Nest is a small home located within a short walk of the Monteverde Cloudforest Reserve. Our garden hosts Quetzals, Mot Mots, Hummingbirds, Coatamundis, Tropical Foxes, even (once) a cougar!
The owner is a US based Costa Rica tour operator. This is our own personal hideaway. I am happy to assist you with discounted rental cars, transportation, tours, hotels in other regions of the country, along with local info. We have been in business since 1992, so I have lots of information and advice to share!
Monteverde offers the perfect combination of natural beauty and interesting people. As a matter of fact this area is almost the perfect model for nature and people coexisting harmoniously.
In the early 1950s a small group of Quaker dairy farmers from the US settled on the mountain. The Quakers, with their peaceful ways, and respect for the environment, were a perfect match for the hard working, friendly Costa Ricans already living here. Since that time, several reserves have been founded where you can walk for hours in the splendor of the cloudforest.
Many artists, researchers and educators either make their homes here or are frequent visitors. Several alternative schools, an institute for cloudforest education, a woman's arts cooperative, numerous galleries and unique giftshops illustrate the cultural experience awaiting you here.
Numerous canopy adventures (both walkways and ziplines), coffee plantations, an orchid garden, a butterfly farm, a rainforest tram, a frog zoo, a serpentarium and insectarium can also be found here.
