The space

The house is spacious. The huge windows create an incredible natural ambiance. The three large bedrooms sleep seven and air mattresses are available if you need them. The kitchen is large and well equipped. We do not have heat or air conditioning. You won't need it. The windows are screened and I choose to leave them open both day and night.

Guest access

Guests may wander the entire farm if they choose. There are wonderful spots for photography and birdwatching. They can help care for the animals or learn to milk a cow!
The horses are available for lessons or a guided tour. Please make yourselves at home. Mi casa es tu casa!

Interaction with guests

Our wonderful caretakers, Yenory and Alfredo, will be your hosts. They live in a separate house on the finca and will be available 24/7 to assist you. Housekeeping, laundry, and cooking can be arranged but are not included in the rental price.

The neighborhood

Our area is quiet and safe. The gate is locked at night .
If you choose to eat out rather than to use our kitchen to prepare meals there are several excellent options in the area ranging from typical to gourmet. Turrialba even has a sushi place! There are many interesting excursions easily accessible if you have a car. These include:
white water rafting, kayaking, canyoning, canopy tours (zip lines), botanical gardens, archaeological ruins, butterfly farm, coffee plantation tour, horseback riding, bird-watching and trips to the volcanoes. You may even choose a trip to the wonderful caribean beaches and the Sloth Rescue Center in Cahuita!

Getting around

We suggest that you rent a 4-wheel drive vehicle at the airport as the access to the farm is steep. You probably wouldn't choose to walk it frequently! I will be happy to send detailed directions and gps is available with most rentals.

Other things to note

Be sure to bring your camera, good hiking shoes and a sense of adventure!

House Rules

Everything in the house is at your disposal. Please feel free to enjoy my library of books and videos. Please don't take any souvenirs. Take only pictures, leave only footprints!

I purchased my farm in Costa Rica in 2005 and the cabin on the Hillsborough river in 2015. I've really enjoyed sharing my good fortune with other people through Airbnb.
