  • Perfection!

    "I could not be happier with our stay at the tranquil Rancho El Rio. I have so many wonderful things to say about it that it's hard to know where to start. First, we used only a map, no gps coordinates and found the place extremely easy to find. We were greeted by the youngest member of the family, Stewart, who is one of the most mature young teenagers I have met. He was an encyclopedia of knowledge on the flora and fauna of the area and was always willing and available to help with questions, or to give guided tours of the farm. The farmhouse itself is magical. It is impossible not to relax and enjoy the peaceful setting. The pictures do not do it justice. I was prepared for any onslaught of spiders, ants, scorpions, or other wildlife, but found very few critters roaming around the open air living area. It felt very safe and clean. I was able to sip coffee and watch my 3 children (ages 8, 7, and 2) run around with the friendly dogs, cats, chickens, pigs, turkeys and peacocks in the yard. My city kids were enchanted with helping feed the animals, care for the baby chicks and pet the 5 day old calf. The river is clean and refreshing to swim in and there were areas that were perfect for our 2 year old to wade and swim. We took a horseback ride to a more remote part of the river and were surrounded by surreal beauty. Veronica, her family and all of those working on the farm were kind and helpful, but also not intrusive. They were immediately responsive to any need. We also had the most amazing meals delivered every evening. Do not make the mistake of booking only a few days here, you will want to stay longer! It is an easy drive to Monteverde, but away from the tourist traps. The weather was also much preferable, cooler in the evenings and mornings (shorts and light sweatshirts) and warm (but not overbearingly so) during the day. I did not feel like a tourist here, it felt like our family was staying at my long-lost Costa Rican cousin's farm. I left feeling peaceful and refreshed. It is truly a gem to be treasured."

  • Beautiful small houses

    "Great stay at these beautiful small houses. Very close to the beach and very quiet and private place. Just a couple of kitchen utensils missing like a coffemaker."

  • Wonderful week in paradise!

    "We stayed at the flamingo house for a week the end of January with our whole family including 3 couples and 2 singles. We had a fantastic time during our stay! The house is absolutely perfect... everyone had plenty of room and almost everyone had their own bathroom. The pool is the a great place to hang out after the beach. Most of all the location is unbeatable... it is one of the few houses on Flamingo Beach (which is the best beach in the area) so it was very private but also next door to the bar/restaurant Coco Loco so not too secluded. The staff was incredible...Erica cleaned every day and kept everything neat and fresh, Jose was the night guard who cleaned the pool, Christian organized activities for us and translated when needed, and Ivonne was the chef who really made the stay for us. They were all so friendly and although they didn't speak English they were eager and willing to try to learn and communicate. Ivonnes cooking was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. She cooks in the outdoor kitchen and everything she made was authentic and delicious. We couldn't have been more pleased with the overall experience."
