About the Property

Two Bedrooms, Full Kitchen, Covered Patio, Surrounded by Nature

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>

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.

 

Manager info

About: 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. .

Why Monteverde, Costa Rica:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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.
