  • 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"

  • Calm Paradise

    "We stayed 4 days in this beautiful house. It was in perfect distance to different sightseeing tours at valle central, if you have a car. We made tours to Orosi, Lake Cachi, Volcan Irazu, Lankaster Gardens and Caffe Christina (coffee tour). After all these sightseeings we were glad to come back and relax on the terrasse with its view over the valley and drink a beer or a nice glas of wine. We always made dinner and ate on the terrasse. The equipment was just great, the beds comortable and each room had its own bathroom with shower. Heriberto the caretaker was so lovely and by the time we were there, he had new born dogbabies ... The kids loved them ... All in all we really can recommend this place! Pura Vida!"

  • Penthouse in San Jose

    "I stayed here with two of my colleagues for a 2-month long externship with the Poder Judicial. Tomas was the best host. He made it simple and easy to get to his apartment from the airport and was very responsive whenever anything came up. He also gave us our space but was always accessible. While we stayed we had a few hiccups with the apartment but they were usually fixed within the day if not within a few hours. We got along great and spent a few nights simply conversing with him. The apartment itself is older and the kitchen is small but functional and we made it work btwn the three of us. The neighborhood is usually calm although the train is near by and the neighbors all own more than a few dogs but are usually not a problem during the night but can create a ruckus. The center of town is about 15-minute walk as well as the nearest grocery store. Taxis are always easily accessible by the hospital that is near by. We really enjoyed the cafe around the corner as well. Overall we had a great experience and really lucked out to have such an amazing host. Couldn't have imagined staying in a busier part of the city this was a perfect combination."

  • Unforgettable Paradise getaway

    "This beautiful little guesthouse on the top of a mountain, hovering over Orosi village and valley was an incredible choice. Went there with a good friend but it is ideal for a romantic couple looking for some real time off, or a little family, since, in addition to a king size bed, has two beautiful authentic King Edwards mansion single beds on the mezzanine. Fully operational modern kitchenette, plus the most surrealistic point of view overlooking the mountains and valley, Nancy's gardens and pathways leading to beautiful coffee plants. Real hot water in the shower and jacuzzi tub on the terrace, which we didn't use, but if I came back with my wife, would most certainly do. Decoration is awesome, full of memorabilia from the couple's numerous travels all over the globe. Nancy has the most interesting collection of rare tropical flowers and numerous Orchids, you can feel the love she puts into it. Second terrace even has a barbecue. Steven and Nancy were very helpful in making our few nights stay the most unforgettable visit of the Orosi Valley. Pointed us to their friend who owns Cafe Christina, a biological coffee farm, where we bought the best coffee imaginable for our trip home. Nancy pointed us to a mirador, or view point, that brought us to discover more, down the valley, visiting pear and other harvests, and ruins of the first colonial church in all of Costa Rica. With a 4x4, you can head down a steep dirt road directly into Orosi village. Steven even cooked us little bread buns for our leave. Great people to talk to, although very discreet when we were in. Steven has set up a new wifi hub in the guesthouse, so communication lines are clear. Recycling of plastic, metal and paper also organized... Rent without hesitation, really ! Thank you so much, Steven and Nancy! Hello to your 4 lovely Rottweiler girls ! Pura Vida !!"
