Absolutely stunning place. I should say this has been the best place I have stayed so far with airbnb. It was a little tough reaching there, but we were prepared reading the previous reviews. But it was totally worth it. Most of the roads in Costa Rica are not in great condition either. Solitude that we enjoyed here cannot be described. House keeper Juan was very helpful. When we lost our way he came all the way to help and guide us home. He was such a sweet man. Nita was highly responsive with her communications and also suggested activities, which has become so memorable. Staying here is the highlight of our trip. We also enjoyed the hot springs nearby based on Juan's recommendation. We would not have felt bad even if it had rained all the time we stayed there, this place is worth the visit in itself. There is also a small pathway that leads to a private creek.
Tips for future guests: always use 4WD(recommended anywhere in Costa Rica) , get groceries in La Fortuna if you want to prepare something elaborate, but there is also a mini-supermarket nearby. There is also a restaurant nearby that serves such tasty and authentic Costa Rican cuisine (roughly translated as mama's table if I recall correctly).
Hot water was available, with tips and notes left all over the guest house. Their cats were very friendly, I am allergic to cats, but still couldn't resist - kept washing my hands after petting them :)
Also, they had hair drier, which was perfect, because it rains frequently (it's a rainforest of course :))
We will definitely visit again. Thank you, Nita!!
Meena we are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank for Choosing Encantada Guest House and please do come again! Sorry about the GPS thing. We have the true coordinates but something must have been Auto corrected, when we sent them? I will pass your compliments on to Juan as well.
