  • Great Volcano Location

    "We wanted an off the beaten path, and quaint house, to experience the jungle, waterfalls, lake, and volcano and this was exactly that! The view from the top of the house is amazing and the hosts (Gilbert and Ericka) where very accommodating. Best food all trip was at the Pheonix (off he beaten path and close to property) and the family that runs it were very friendly & accommodating. The Sky Trek zip lining 10 min to the property was also awesome and heard best in Costa Rica. Overall great experience and house. Must have a 4x4 as the rocks...er roads....would be risky in a lower vehicle."

  • Amazing cottage and wonderful hosts

    "Bob and Betty have created a lovely detached cottage close to the main house but totally private. The cottage is situated on a beautifully landscaped hill overlooking Lake Arenal. It is attractively furnished and equipped with everything you could possibly desire for a short or long stay. The bed is exceptionally comfortable (always an important fact). Bob and Betty are full of great ideas and tips about the area. Chatting with them is like running into old friends. It is a lovely relaxing place to return to at the end of each day. Bob and Betty I hope you didn’t have too much snow on your trip!"

  • Absolutely perfect experience!

    "My husband and I and our 3 adult children stayed here. The setting is absolutely wonderful. Veronica and Stuart were so warm and hospitable. We loved the idea of staying in a local home. Meeting Gisella and her family was such an added bonus. Do not hesitate to order her meals or grocery supplies. The empanadas and cheese where amazing. I felt like family to both Gisella and Veronica. Gisella allowed us to milk her cows.. We had so much fun. We also enjoyed the nearby cloud forests and Veronicas wealth of knowledge and help with booking our adventures. I hope to return someday."

  • What a fabulous experience

    "We stayed here 5 nights and enjoyed every moment of it. The property is beautiful and tranquil. The owner Lorenzo would come by on occasion to show us where some animals were. He seems to know where all the sloths hang out. We were able to get within a foot of a momma and her baby. Amazing! We also saw various lizards and birds. The AC worked great on the really hot days and the pool was a treat! We enjoyed the traditional BBQ one evening cooked by the owner and family. It was amazing! The property manager Eder was superb. He was very experienced and helpful for everything we needed. He also kindly answered my many emails before our trip trying to plan everything out."
