Our group of 2 couples stayed here for a few days. We fell in love with the place and the host. This gorgeous, peaceful hillside property has lush gardens and trout pools surrounded by forest. The house is clean, comfortable, and well laid out. Bedrooms/bathrooms offer privacy, while common kitchen/dining/living areas are inviting and practical. Steve is an exceptional host and a wonderful human being. He made sure everything was in order and that we had great coffee. His local knowledge and tips were valuable. We’re grateful fans!

I stayed with my family of 5 and had a great time. Steve the host was fantastic and accommodating. We went zip lining and the children's museum in San Jose a must see! Catching fish at the pond and having Steve cook them they were delicious. Inside was clean and comfortable. The grounds are beautiful and tranquil. This is a great place to stay and I will be coming back. Joel

The house and property are exactly as shown and it's very clean. The weather was perfect so we had several picnics outside because the property was so beautiful. We have two kids and they really enjoyed trout fishing right in the backyard. The owner cooked the fish outside for us and showed us how to make fresh tortillas! Best fish tacos on the planet! The owner was very helpful in arranging transportation to and from the airport and he provided very specific information on how to get to the nearby volcanos, national parks and zip lining as well as what to expect in terms of weather, clothing, what to bring on our excursions, etc. He also recommended a restaurant on the way to zip lining which had great food and you can take a short hike down a trail to an amazing river. Great little spot! We definitely will go back and explore some more. Best Trip Ever!! We highly recommend it!
