Bienvenidos a la Finca!
We are excited to share with you the "real" Costa Rica, or at least a delicious taste of it. We rent out Private double rooms in a large open air farm house, conveniently accessible yet a world away from mainstream tourism.

The space

Want to experience a different side of tropical paradise? Get away from it all but without going too far off the beaten track. We rent rooms in our family farm house. The home is located a short walk down an Idyllic country road, where neighbors wave and wish you Pura Vida, from uncrowded Caribbean shores. The rooms are in a newly constructed open-air house where the monkeys are your morning wake up call the crickets and frogs sing to you, sweet dreams. We operate with as much sustainability as possible. Accommodations are basic, but beautiful. Mosquito nets and clean sheets are provided. There are shared bathroom facilities, including a composting outhouse. On-demand hot water showers are available. Guests are welcome to use the large kitchen. For a delicious shared home cooked meal arrange with some prior notice, no problem. There are many options for things to do. Half way between the port city of Limon, and Cahuita National Park, there are no shortage of adventures here...or just laze in a hammock and fill your eyes with the green jungle that surrounds you.

Guest access

Private room, that has its own lock and key.
Shared bathroom with showers, and composting toilet.
2 bicycles are available for exploring surrounding areas.
Shared kitchen.
Communal consumption of all fruits and vegies grown on the farm!! this includes fresh farm eggs in the am, however breakfast will not always be prepared for you.. . everyone is encouraged to help out on the farm.
There is a washing machine, but we encourage laundry to be done by hands and dried by the sun to lessen our enviromental impact.
Tours can be arranged with local fisherman for deep sea fishing or nature river tours to sea crocodiles, sloths, and monkeys!

Interaction with guests

There is usually somebody around to answer questions. We are native english speakers, but the owner also speaks fluent spanish. As this is a functioning farm the owners are often busy dawn til dusk with work. Guest can arrange a tour of the farm or chocolate making class prior to arrival. The house has three private rooms for rent, and a dorm room under construction-so there potentially could be other travelers in the home as well. Also our two loveable farm dogs, our Tilapia pond, chickens and soon goats and horses are always around to keep you company. as of sept. 2014 the live-in owner offers free english class to village children tuesdays and thursdays in the a.m. we encourage guests to participate and help contribute in cross cultural exchanges.

Other things to note

our communal house is located on a working organic fruit farm, and we invite all guests to participate on the farm and share in the delcious produce, all food proudced on the farm is for communal consumption but regular gorceries are not included.

We stayed at Clayton´s farm for 5 days and loved it. We felt very welcome from the start. We learned a fair deal about sustainability, both housing and farm (with a great variety of plants offering fruit and vegetables). Clayton showed us how to make chocolate using cacoa beans from the farm. We ended up with a fridge stuffed with chocolate in quite some flavours :) I could recommend a visit at Clayton´s farm, simple and layed back living in the middle of the jungle.

We stayed with Clayton for a few days around Christmas. Didn't quite know what to expect, but it was an experience. If you're looking for something off the beaten path, check it out. We didn't get a chance to check out the farm, but went to a cool waterfall nearby. Not a touristy area at all, very neat to see how the natives live. You have to walk to the bus and take it for twenty minutes to get to the closest town cahuita. If you have a car it would be a lot more feasible. Accommodations are pretty rustic, I recommend it for someone who's used to roughing it off the grid. Clayton is very helpful and knowledgable, I commend him for what he's trying to do out there.

Clayton is awesome and his house and property are amazing! We were greeted so kindly and shown around the beautiful and home and property. He prepared a delicious meal for us upon our arrival! Clay is such a cool guy and spent a lot of time sharing his vast knowledge, explaining his crops and his amazing sustainable lifestyle. He has great stories and is so interesting to talk with. He built his home and everything else on his property and it is like a dream. He has so many skills that he has learned and is entirely self sufficient. He is very laid back and made us feel very comfortable in his home. He let us use his kitchen and eat his fruits and drink his coffee. The neighborhood that Clay lives in is great! He was kind enough to have a neighbor cook us dinner the two nights we were there. We also had one of the most authentic and amazing experiences at Clay's house. One of his neighbors, a lifelong San Clemente resident and musician, came over one night, impromptu, and played his guitar and sang! The whole atmosphere at Clay's is comfortable, laid back, interesting, adventurous and fun! He is on the edge of the jungle and within walking distance to the beach. We spent some time exploring the farm and jungle and watching the howler monkeys. Whether you are looking to chill in a hammock and watch the wildlife, or have an active adventure, you will be happy here! He also has 2 sweet dogs and some cool chickens. I cannot say enough good things about Clay and the place! We had amazing experiences there that we will remember forever!!!!! Also, if you are a chocolate lover, Clay grows his own cocoa!

Very nice place to stay if you are looking to get away from the tourist trail for a few days. The rooms are big and clean, and have great views over the farm. We spent most of the time relaxing in the hammocks, we also made chocolate from the beans grown on the farm. Clayton is a nice guy, full of stories, but often busy with other things. Don't expect someone to be around all the time.

Response from Clayton:
abbey i appreciate your feedback, just a question when you saw our airbnb advertisement you were under the impression that breakfast would be provided and prepared for you? and the guests had to wait an hour because they actually told me they were coming a day before, and were relcutant to even pay me, i informed them i would be working and they could arrive in the evening which they did not and came before lunch, which is before check in time. . . but i appreciate the feedback iw illt ry to make it more clear that even though breakfast is privded it is not prepared for you. . . happy travels.

Clayton's farm is beautiful, and while it has good access to the hourly bus, we felt a bit too isolated. So, while we came there with the intention of staying seven nights, we ended up only staying two. The farm itself is a great place to relax- beautiful grounds, friendly dogs (and chickens, and frogs, and lizards....) but we had a lot we wanted to do in the area, and being with a very energetic 5 year old, relaxing wasn't really in the cards for us. Therefor, we thought having more easy access to activities such as kayaking, surfing, etc was a better option and so we headed to the not too far off Puerto Viejo de Talamanca. Clayton was a friendly host. It took about a day for us to all sort of get used to each other but once we did he was easy to chat with, and we ended up eating together and chatting over coffee. Leila our daughter loved him and insisted on following him around and chatting his ear off. The place itself is really interesting, and Clayton is very knowledgeable about living off the land. If you are expecting to go there and be pampered, or automatically given lessons in farming, you will be disappointed. If you go there with your own plans, are happy to independently explore the area, and have LOTS OF BUG SPRAY (or tolerance for mosquitos), you will be rewarded with a unique experience, the taste of the worlds' most delicious bananas, and probably a new friend or two (of various species).

Nice stay with special experiences. The owner, Clay, will tell you all about his plants, trees, fruit and vegetables. You may try it all! Clay will try to suit all your needs.
