  • The property that Dagmar and Daniel keep is beautiful and very well maintained. The single room has all the comforts of a nice hotel, but in the middle of their organic garden. We were served organic, and very well prepared, breakfast every morning with fresh coffee. We enjoyed hanging out with Dagmar and Daniel enough that we stayed in for most of the time rather than walking into town. To have privacy we simply walked upstairs to the 360 degree glass room that is surrounded by jungle. At night it was perfect for stargazing. The room is very comfortable, the bed is nice and the outdoor shower is great. We would recommend this to a couple or single traveler looking to enjoy a little countryside and have close proximity to town. Almost forgot to mention Dagmar’s great yoga studio in town. We dropped in and had a great workout.

  • We were very lucky to have the whole house to ourselves, a beautiful Moroccan style house very tastefully decorated. The small details made it warm and welcoming. The whole house has a very zen feeling about it and we especially appreciated the hammocks from which we could watch the stars every night. The garden is green and fresh and you can pick fruits for the morning lemonade. Arjuna the cat was the sweetest companion. Dagmar and Daniel shared with us some their thoughts and experiences in Costa Rica over a cup of tea on the terrace. I especially appreciated the yoga invitation in Dagmar's class at Montezuma yoga which I warmly recommend, as well staying here while in Montezuma.
