  • Rainforest Adventure

    "A written or pictorial description of the mountain property overlooking the Turrialba valley cannot prepare visitors for the expansive view from Nature's Hideaway. You never tire of the vista and the tiny cars and houses silently existing down in the faraway valley. We were always taking pictures of the valley and surrounding forests even though we took the same picture the day before thinking the sunlight gave a clearer image. Although nature is at its finest from this mountainside location, the highlight of the trip was the people who live there. Henry and Krissia along with their two children are the perfect hosts preparing meals, giving directions and suggestions for whatever your purpose may be. Family ties are a priority in Costa Rica and they are an example of a loving family which you will enjoy being a witness as you come and go during your sightseeing stay. The owner Libby returned every email in a timely manner and answered questions with suggestions on how to solve transportation problems and directions. We adjusted our dates and people making the trip and she refunded money due and cooperated with our changing trip. She even offered the help of family members to accompany us if we had to drive at night. Do plan to travel during the day as the unmarked roads can be challenging and unlit. My Peace Corp daughter had responsibilities in the Cartago area requiring trips back and forth which we traveled on three different routes (road 10, road 230, road 225). Each drive was an adventure of landscape beauty, friendly people, mountain living, and agrarian lifestyles featuring diverse local foods and water ways with single lane bridges. When you go, give our regards to Henry, Krissia, Jemanen, Julian . Mel and Carleen"

  • Dem Himmel näher

    "Wir verbrachten 4 wundervolle Tage auf dem Anwesen von Nancy und Steve. Es war eine ganz besondere Zeit für uns. Die Stille, der herrliche Garten, der Blick von der Terrasse, die Abende im Jacuzzi..... Aber ganz besonders waren die Begegnungen mit Nancy und Steve. Wir fühlten uns bei ihnen wie zu Hause und sofort wohl. Ungerne haben wir unsere Reise fortgesetzt."

  • Jungle to View

    "This was the third place we stayed out of four on our Costa Rican vacation. The weather is cooler than on the coasts, we felt we should have brought more people, the place is large and very comfortable, everything you would need. The views are spectacular! Our stay included breakfast and these we delivered on time and were great. We were also invited for a family meal that was out of this world. This family is very friendly and will go out of their way to accommodate their guests needs. They offer several packages (we were only able to do the farm tour, great). We would recommend writing a explanation of the packages so guest could look them over at their leisure, may inspire more bookings, or even send your future guests an email with these activities so they can be arranged in advance. My husband and I had a great experience here and if we go back to Costa Rica would like to stay again."

  • Costa Rica Perfection...

    "Our group of 8 people ranging in age from 5 years to 75 years all found this beautiful home and surrounding area to be absolutely perfect! The views were spectacular, and listening to the birds singing and watching them fly and perch on the grounds was a daily treat. We took many cherished photos of flowers and trees on the property. All of the amenities of home are included, and the owner has taken great care to provide all the necessary information to identify birds, plan day trips, and maximize the opportunity to be here. The on-site caretaker (and his wife) are superb, and daily conversations with him (in Spanish) are something we treasured. We know people who recently took tours to Costa Rica, and they were jealous of our photos and stories, since we made many memories here, "off the beaten path," that are not available when staying in resorts or traveling with a tour group. We would definitely stay here again if we returned to Costa Rica!"
