  • The house is Just Perfect and beautiful, well situated with a beautiful view.
    It s so quiet and peaceful. And Michael is so Nice and very Helpful. The house is so well équiped. The only thing is à 4 wheel drive is better to access the house but it s possible with à car!

    Response from Nita:

    Thank you Thibault, for your kind words. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay, Please come back soon. We, also recommend a 4x4 or SUV for all of the Costa Rica, but especially the Monteverde & Arenal Areas, due to many dirt & gravel roads.

  • As we use airbnb to be closer of the local people, we were very disappointed to discover that we were alone in a house belonging to Americans! Except that, the house and garden are very nice and quite, and the view on the lake beautiful.

    Response from Nita:

    Thank you Claudia for your kind words, Our place is a bit removed, but very peaceful & tranquil, because we are not in the Village. We are sorry you were lonely, but sometimes it happens, that we do not have both rooms booked and our guests may have the entire property to themselves.
    We are indeed Americans, building a new & permanent life for ourselves in Costa Rica, That being said, we hope you had a chance to interact with Michael, our caretaker..and some of the people in the Village.

    Pura Vida
