The space

Finca Las Frambuesas is a 7 acre farm with a river, small lake, forest, an orchard, 2 traditionally built houses, a fire pit, 3 dogs and a horse. Aside form renting our two beautiful houses, Casa del Lago (Lake House) and Casa del Pozo (Well House), we are starting an organic farming project and organizing holistic courses. If you stay 3 or more days we will share with you a basket of our own organic produce for your enjoyment!

The farm is located in San Isidro de Heredia, less than 40 minutes from the International Airport, only 25 minutes from San Jose by car and just 5 minutes from Braulio Carrillo National Park; a tropical rain forest with one of the highest levels of biodiversity in Costa Rica. More than 90% of the park is covered in primary forest.

Casa del Pozo is a private apartment next to the main house Casa del Lago. It has a deck, a terrace, a comfortable room with a beautiful bathroom, a kitchen/ living room / dinning room, all surrounded by lush tropical gardens. Perfect for a couple, the space will feel very homey and warm.

The property, due to its proximity to the capital and its serene natural environment, is also perfect for small weddings, and home births. Contact us for more information!

Maria Fernanda is an excellent host, she was kind and nice to me an my family. Her property is AMAZING, the views are spectacular. You feel like you are in an enchanted place of a book. My little boy adored the 2 Golden Retrievers, Taca and Coqui , they were like the perfect babysitters, we will come back that is for sure.

we absolutely loved staying here. Maria is so nice. there are friendly playful dogs and gorgeous grounds. the whole place has great energy. our son was born here so we won't forget it! the stove and kitchen are small and not well designed if you are planning a longer stay and like to cook but we stayed for nearly 6 weeks and it was fine. dogs can also be noisy (barking) at night. but if you're looking for a tranquil spit to relax and escape I highly recommend it!

The house is great and much bigger then you can see on the pictures. Just be aware that it is quite chilly in the evenings and night. We stayed 8 nights but have not met Maria, only the guys that work there. It is very quiet and lots of space around the house.

We loved staying at this super cute little casita. The minute we walked through the door we said, "wow, so cute!" It is comfortably decorated and just has a really nice feel. We met Maria briefly and she was also very nice and friendly. I read other reviews that said the casita was very hard to find. With Maria's map and directions we had no issues - but definitely ask her for that! We're already planning to rent it for a month next time!

Lovely house. It's a pleasing living space, both indoors and out, with quality amenities -- i.e. comfortable chairs, sofas. We'd happily stay there again. As described. Her photos are accurate. The kitchen is very usable, with sufficient utensils and a nice gas stove. No cooking ingredients provided (except salt), which is fine. We didn't meet Maria-Fernanda in person, but her groundskeeper (who lives on site) greeted us. It's a gated property, and they give you a remote key to open the gate for your independence. She has a short list of local recommendations, and her restaurant choices were all nice, including a brick oven pizzeria, and a lovely and tasty converted farmhouse restaurant which was featured in the regional paper's food section (about "slow food") a few years ago. So it's a good combo of a nice place to say, and nice places to have dinner. I noticed another reviewer mentioning bugs, lizards. They do enter the house, regardless of whether you open the non-air-tight doors. But it's a minor issue, and the place is very clean overall. Warning: There is no door between the bedroom and the bathroom, though there is a half-wall that gives you privacy on the toilet. This is not a problem if you want to shoo others in your party to the main room while you poop, but if you have a larger group, and you want some extra privacy, it might be an issue.

Casa del Poza was as described with the addition of a center island in the kitchen which offers a gas stove top for cooking. I really enjoyed using this while taking in the lovely view of San Jose via the wonderful windows and deck. The home is beautiful and was what I expected from the photos and even more. Waking up each day to the view was breath taking and the sunsets each night were amazing. Star gazing too was something I enjoyed due to the location and clear skies. My rating would have been a 4.5 but that is not possible. There were some glitches in my visit, but I would still return and I understand the limitations of such a rental. One does have to realize you are in the country so it is expected you will have visiting lizards and local insects but this was not problematic due to the suite being very clean. However when you leave windows open to catch the wonderful breeze, this should be a consideration. I would suggest having a car, perhaps an SUV, if you will be traveling into the mountains further. Also a GPS system is essential. I would not have been able to travel as I did freely without one due to being alone and having to navigate the roads. I used Waze with much success and only lost a signal while high in the mountains. I loved my first visit to Costa Rica and staying in this area. I plan on returning soon with my family. I visited the Siba Chocolate Farm which was beautiful: (URL HIDDEN) Spent a Saturday morning at the Escazu Farmer's Market: (URL HIDDEN) Visited a local Toucan Rescue Ranch: (URL HIDDEN) Since it was a national holiday I also drove through many of the local towns and enjoyed some of the local festivities. The people of Costa Rica are very warm and friendly and even though I speak very little Spanish, I was able to usually find someone to assist if needed. This location is wonderful for those wanting to be away from the city but close enough to access it if needed. The airport is close, and San Jose usually never more than 40-50 minutes away. Lastly I did not meet Maria during my stay, however she was available by phone when I had some problems with the bathroom sink, even after being repaired. There is a groundskeeper on site if needed as well. I did choose to come in the following morning of my reservation after reading some of the reviews on the location. The roads are not the easy to navigate initially and the main road leading to the home was closed for two days while I was there. However I was able to navigate around that with Waze, but it was not in the system as a closure so that was a little blip as well. Overall I loved my stay at Casa del Pozo and would highly recommend it.
