The house is OK, but outdated, not very well equipped and smelled a bit moldy. There are no mosquito nets so bugs are attracted by the lights in the house. Gaps between the windows and wall allow bugs to get in. The directions to get to the house were clear, but we could not get there with our 4x4 car. The last bit of the road (right after the bridge) was in such bad condition (steep, slippery, narrow with big holes) that we/the car could not make it up. Had to carry our luggages from the hotel, about 10-15 minutes walk. Do not choose this house if you like to sleep in. The rooster next door is pretty loud starting at around 3 or 4 AM. The neighbor revving a quad's engine before dawn does not help either. On the other hand, the hikes in the Cloudforest ((URL HIDDEN) and Chirripo park are awesome. The hot-spring (i.e. outdoor natural jacuzzi) for $10 per person, not so much.

Good place, a little bit far from the bottom of the trail in my opinion. Also a little pricey for what it is, but very charming at the end ! Thanks to the neighbors !

Simply AMAZING!!!! In those days Anouk and her family weren't at home and I had all the house for me. I love this house and Anouk is so friendly and helpful. The house is clean and cozy. The view is incredible. The kitchen is equipped for cooking in the wild forest. If you are in San Gerardo probably you like trekking so, don't worry for the little uphill, it's worth!! Thank you Anouk

Dear Anouk, thank you very much that we could stay in your house! We had a great time there! We reached also Chirripó, the highst mountain in Costa Rica (3.820m) with our little son (3 years). That was a really great experience! Anouk give me a lot of useful hints. The house be located in the middle of the nature. We saw a lot of animals and dieffernt plants in the nearby natural park. You get all you need in a small shop toward the valley. The people are really friendly and helpful. Even a natural thermal bath are in place. Really great! I think we will come again there :-) Many thanks and best regards, Ralf Angelika and Alois

The appartement was very hard to reach with our 4x4 drive. The view was great. The appartement itself was a little outdated and not frequently used. The surrounding is very beautiful and we make nices hikes.

The instructions Anouk gave for the house were very helpful. The view from the house is beautiful and it has a rustic feel. The couple at the hotel where you pick up the key were very sweet and helpful as well. Anouk reccomends not to find the place after dark, and she is correct! We had to get there after dark and it was very tricky finding the place but we managed. However speaking from experience I wouldn't reccomend it either.

I love the mountains and i'm a nature lover!
I try to go in the forest at least 3 times a week with my daughter and my dog -sometimes with my husband when he's not at work. We love to hike, cross country ski, bike and observe the nature!
