German's home was in the perfect location on our route to Arenal/Fortuna. Directions were clear. We weren't able to use a phone to call Thelma, but we were able to meet her anyway after working out a simple plan with German. We loved his home for a short one night stay. It was th…

This is an architecturally unique house that is eco friendly. Lots of light in the house and great craftsmanship. We loved this house and it was a great deal. One thing to be aware of is that it is not a true 2 bedroom as there is no door separating the rooms. Great cookstove …

Jennifer! I checked the info of LA CUSUCA! There is an error saying there are two bedrooms; but there is plenty of information, photos, floor plan etcera where it makes clear how the house is divided; 1 master bedroom connected with the main living area where you have 2 couches for kids or other members of the family! You are the first in about 50 guests of last year who did not notice this before booking! I will add this characteristic at the very first description of the house, so that this will not be complained again! Bye!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here at the CUSUCA. It is such a unique home, and we were very comfortable. We really didn’t want to leave at the end of our trip. I would definitely recommend a stay here in this quiet and scenic spot.

We were uncertain about staying here at first, but this actually ended up being one of our favorite places. We stayed here for 1 night, but we wished we could have stayed longer. We used it for passing through on our way back to SJO from the beach, but it was so homey feeling tha…

La Cusuca was the first place we stayed in Costa Rica. It was absolutely lovely and the photos here do not do the place justice because in person it is so breathtaking and unique! We spotted a blue crowned mot mot in the tree outside on our first day. We visited Soda La Macha whi…
