Casa del Lago, cozy farm house

House - Entire home/apt · San Isidro, Heredia Province, Costa Rica

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 rainforest with one of the highest levels of biodiversity in Costa Rica. More than 90% of the park is covered in primary forest.

Casa del Lago was built in the early 90’s as a family house, with the vision of upbringing our two children in an ideal country side environment not so far from quality educational centers and the comforts of the city. The space will feel very homey and warm, with a cozy traditional kitchen, a fire place, and three bedrooms that have been decorated with a personal family touch.

The property is perfect for small weddings, contact us for more information on special events.

Because of the proximity to San Jose and the peaceful surroundings Casa del Lago is ideal for home births. Contact us for more information.

The Area

The area offers many interesting things to do, from chocolate tasting tours, to hikes into the rain forest. Our farm is a perfect base for visiting the volcanoes Poas and Barva. We will provide you with a list of things to do and places to eat or to order.

Getting Around

Public transport is available, although limited. Taxis can be arranged easily. Rented cars are probably the most convenient means of transportation. Upon request a transfer from the airport or/and from San Jose to the farm can be arranged at a market rate.

If you have further questions don’t hesitate to contact us, we will answer quickly and will be more than glad to help you out!

  • Maria is a warm hearted woman. Although we arrived late at night she was awaiting us. She even did some shopping for us and the huge fridge was filled. The house is perfectly maintained. Everything is in perfect optical and functional condition. The house is nicely situated on the mountain slopes next to San José. Overlooking the city with nice views at day and night. To the AirPort it is only 30 Minutes and easy to find. The surroundings are absolutly quiet so that you have a piecefull and relaxed time. You have absolutly your privacy. For our start into Costa Rica this was the best place to choose. Thank you Maria

  • Maria was very nice and very good. Especially helping us find the place late in the evening when we got turned around by our GPS. She drove into town to meet us and bring us back. We really enjoyed the house, especially the fine back patio over-looking a nice view of San Jose. It was so nice we spent a day just relaxing and enjoying the ambience and the view. We felt like aristocracy. The kitchen was spacious and well-provided, including even decaf coffee. We'd gladly come back.
