Turrialba volcano is a safe distance from our place. The recent problem has been ashes which travel in the direction of San Jose and dont affect our area.
We are a family environment . No smoking please! We have a cat.
Whoever stays in Ron's and Katy's abode is fortunate!
Rob and I found their studio adorable, cozy, clean, super comfortable and with everything you will need to make your stay wonderful. They had fruit and chocolates waiting for us and endless amount of passion fruit right outside the door. But the highlight was Ron-- he is one of the kindest people we have met he was always more than willing to answer our endless questions, and help us plan our activities. We feel he went out of his way to make sure our stay was full of adventure yet always gave us the space to relax and enjoy the serenity of his place. He took us on a beautiful walk to his favorite spring right by the river we will never forget that.
We thank you Ron and hope to be back one day..
Such a great spot! The small room was tidy, comfy, and had everything we needed for a few days' stay PLUS passion fruits grow right outside your door! ;-) Orosi is a charming town. Transportation to and from was a breeze and did not take long at all to get to from San Jose, yet was very peaceful and rural.
Ron was a fantastic host, always ready to lend a helping hand. Our visit during rainy season often left us at risk for sudden downpours, and Ron would offer to drive us out to our hikes. The highlight of our entire stay was being led to a secluded natural hot spring pool right on the river. Ron took us to the springs early our first morning in town and spent the morning with us, chatting about travel and giving tips for his town and other places in CR. I highly recommend both Ron & Kattia's space and the Orosi Valley. And go visit soon, while their cat is still kitten'ish- she was a real riot to have around!
Our stay with Ron was amazing! I do not think you can find a better host. He is very personable and is truly dedicated to making sure his guests are happy. He communicated with us on a daily basis about available activities in the area and must see sites. The apartment had everything that we needed and was well kept. It's in walking distance to the town, but far enough away for a little privacy. We felt very safe there too; the house had a locked gate, which you can park your car behind. I would definitely recommend staying here!
Orosi is a cute little town with a few nice walks and we found a little hot spring that is free but get in early before it's nabbed by the locals.
We did not see Ron as he was away and did not see much of his family but they were helpful when needed.
Their friend who lives next door, Marty is a really nice and friendly guy who was super informative and a pleasure to spend time with.
Ron is really a superhost! He is helpful, attentive and courteous. Highly recommended. Thanks many times for everything Ron!

Wow. Far exceeding expectations! Ron, his family, and Marty (lives in other guest house) were welcoming from the beginning. Ron picked us up from the airport and drove us the 1 1/2 to Orosi. It felt more like a guided tour as he stopped at look outs, took is down side streets to see churches, and answered all of our questions about the structure of Costa Rica. The cottage is clean and had all of the amenities we needed. We borrowed his bikes. A tire popped and he went out to get a brand new one. His son was having a go away party with his extended family, and he invited us! He gave us a delicious Costa Rican dinner with his family. We got a glimpse into the REAL Costa Rica (that is lost in much of the other touristy cities we have been to).
If you are looking for a welcoming home stay (who leaves you fresh fruit on your doorstep while you are away) stay here!
Ron es un anfintrion y una persona excelente, la primera noche cuando llegamos un poco tarde, él personalmente nos llevó a comprar algo para nuestra cena. Al dia siguiente consiguió información sobre los volcanes de alrededor muy útil y para la salida el día siguiente incluso nos dió unos muffins caseros riquísimos.
El alojamiento es perfecto para relajarse, muy seguro, limpio y con facilidades para preparar comida.
Muchas Gracias Ron, Katie y familia corta estancia pero muy positiva
