Our stay at this cabin was nothing short of spectacular! We came here after time on the coast, and were so happy to escape the heat and humidity for some fresh mountain air. This cabin, as well as the other rental on their property, are both stunningly designed, and cared for with much love and attention to detail. The property is stunning, hiking trails and look outs at your back door. Swin and her family were wonderful hosts, and always ready to offer advice and suggestions for exploring the area. There is much to do around Rivas, including two cloud forest reserves, hot springs, trout ponds, and plenty of hiking. Just up the road there is a small village with a cheese maker, chocolatier, and bakery. Note: a 4x4 vehicle is necessary to access much of this area, including the cabin itself. We are so lucky to have found this place - it is highly recommended.

The Chirripo Valley was one of my favorite places to stay in Costa Rica. Completely surrounded by huge mountain landscapes, the location is easy to find and just far enough from the town to feel carefree and total privacy. Swin was a fantastic host, giving us good recommendations and keeping the house stocked with everything we could have needed. We had a delicious lunch at Vista al Cerro in Herradura after visiting the hot springs, and also enjoyed our visits to the local artesanal cheese and chocolate shops. The host, her family, and the local people are some of the kindest people I have ever met. Thank you for the wonderful experience!

Swin and her family were absolutely delightful. The home is beautiful and there is nothing quite like waking up to the beautiful sounds of nature. The 4WD is absolutely essential, but the road is a BLAST. What a great drive. Best to get there during the daytime. Second right after the church in Chimirol, not the first. The locals are lovely. Swin is a brilliant person. I highly suggest this great spot.

Best accommodation in Costa Rica! We spent only three nights in this beautiful and very convenient house, the picture doesn't make it justice. The road up is an adventure itself, only to be mastered with a four wheel drive. The journey is very much worth the effort. The surroundings are magnificent and the view from the porch stunning. The hosts did everything to make us feel at home and helped out on the spot when needed. If you're looking for a place to just relax, take a few hikes and wind down this is it. Next time we'll book for a week...

We stayed at a few different homes in Costa Rica over our month vacation, and I can honestly say that Swin's place was our favorite! The gorgeous attention to detail with the construction of the place must be seen first hand to be appreciated.. The kitchen is well equipped, the beds comfortable and very cozy. The hot water was well appreciated, and best Wifi we experienced on our trip. Swin and her family were so lovely, very welcoming and so gracious. We will visit here again, and make sure to stay longer than 2 days! A 4 Wheel drive is necessary to get here and to explore the area. It is worth the drive up, and the views are stunning! I highly recommend this home away from home.

I'm not even sure to start. Swin's place was nothing short of amazing! We arrived late at night and were given a very warm welcome. The home was very nice, super clean and had everything we needed. We had just come from Tamarindo, which was hot and overpriced and way too touristy. Swin provided us with a list of great restaurants and fun things to do. We went on hikes in the beautiful forest only a 10min drive away and it was so quiet and peaceful. Swin and family were super sweet... and not to set the bar super high but they had the cutest puppies and who doesn't love puppies. On our last night there it was raining and she lent us umbrellas to walk the property -- she said that we had to see the view and take a walk -- absolutely. breathtaking! We were in Costa Rica for 10 days and our 4 days at Swin's were the best part of the entire trip. I plan to return next year.

Swin is awesome! And the home is a true treat. A beautiful retreat type home nestled ontop of one of the beautiful mountains near chirripo.

.J’aime ma famille, la nature, le calme, les riches rencontres que la vie nous offre, le cinéma, la lecture, marcher, faire de l’artisanat, voyager. Je ne pourrais pas me passer de soleil, de rire, d’être en pleine nature, de lire, de chanter.
Aimant voyager et rencontrer les gens du voyage on s’est décidé à ouvrir un lieu de location de chalets et de rencontres entre voyageurs. On aime recevoir les gens chez nous, faire en sorte qu’ils se sentent tout de suite à l’aise, en famille. On aime faire ces petites attentions qui je pense, font la différence.
