This house is close to Monteverde and has a beautiful view and access to the Guacimal river! With wifi and hot water, a big beautiful screened in kitchen, and nice warm weather, this is definitely the place to visit if you want to combine luxury and the real Tico experience.

I wanted to introduce some extended family to Costa Rica. True Costa Rica is not just beaches with tourist traps. The rural life of the mountains is what gives Costa Rica its flavor. This farm stay fit the bill well. The owner met us with fresco and empanandas. Her son is well versed in frogs and spiders and took us...

Management response:

We are glad that this family stayed at our Farm. The reviewer liked our work, and we too enjoyed hearing of the work she does to better the lives of women in a very distant part of the world and, as we often do, we learned a lot from her. People like Sophia makes us feel there is a great...

We spent three nights here based on wanting to be near Monteverde while still being out a ways. The reviews were good and so after emailing back and forth with Veronica reservations were all set. She will email driving directions which are accurate however the longitude coordinate she sends matches the location shown here on TripAdvisor Map and is not...

About the neighbourhood
It is the Real Costa Rica. People speaks Spanish and do their ordinary every day activities such as traveling on horseback, carrying sand or rock using oxen-drawn carts, swim in the rivers for fun, have their patios filled with beautiful gardens, medicinal plants, chickens and pigs and some have cows and they herd back and forth to eat or drink from the river or more lush areas. There are TINY grocery stores. You won't see Starbucks, Walmart or McDonalds. Instead we offer food made from neighbors. Low population density so very likely to see monkeys and much wildlife.
