Great facility for 4 of us and could have been 10! Very safe and secure! Excellent communication to coordinate meeting at the time we were available for final guidance into their home on the shared lot of land.

Welcomed us with fresh juice! Very helpful in communicating where they're located since there's no address to lookup in (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps. Listened attentively to our requests about food and drink and helped us have a great time! NOTE: THIS IS LOCATED ~40mins OUTSIDE OF LA FORTUNA DOWNTOWN. We didn't realize this since there's no address and it wasn't called out on the site listing.

This bnb is lovely and the hosts are the best. Carol and Jessica were there to welcome us as we arrived, the house was completely clean and spotless and the location was gorgeous. Carol and Jessica were super quick in responding and they went above and beyond. Carol helped us book all of our tours and was able to get us better rates than what we found online- and the tours were amazing! We were a group of 4, but two missed the flight. Carol went above and beyond again and was able to negotiate with the tours to get partial refunds for the two guests who never made it to Costa Rica. The bnb itself is a large house with three bedrooms, 4 beds and three bathrooms. It's a great space and would be great for an extended family gathering. With it just being the two of us, we still loved the space and would spend our evenings in the hammocks. Others have mentioned exploring the grounds, but we never got around to that since we had yours for each day we were there. I'm a little sad we missed that part. Breakfast was delicious and they are great cooks. There's nothing more to say about that. You won't be disappointed! I asked Carol for directions from Liberia since their site doesn't have info from that part of Costa Rica and we were able to find the bnb without GPS. I suggest looking at a map and reading the directions so you get a good understanding of where you are going. Definitely get a 4 wheel drive or this trip. Some of our most laughable memories from the trip were on their road. We laughed as we drove through some mini mud holes from the rain and we laughed harder when we had to wait for a cow to cross the road. The location is secluded, so it's great if you are going for a more relaxing trip, but it was still perfect for our trip full of tours as the house is only 30 minutes from La Fortuna and 15 minutes from the Venado Caves. Thanks again Carol and Family! You were such great hosts and so welcoming!

Our host was very nice and welcoming ,he made us a delicious breakfast and drive us to a nice restaurant ! The place was tidy and organized However we had a hard time finding the place because the Airbnb map was wrong ,they did have to come and get us .... we wished we had a 4X4 to drive the road leading to the house especially with rain and mud ...

Carol and her husband were so sweet and easy to work with. They were able to accommodate our crazy travel schedule and were so willing to do so. They welcomed us with lemonade and snacks, which was fantastic after a long trip getting there. The breakfast Carol made for us was absolutely delicious, and you could tell they take great pride in their home, this guest house, and how they provide for their guests. The location isn't 100% in La Fortuna, but rather about 30-40 minutes away from the main area where you would want to go do your activities. The property is extraordinarily secluded and really quite beautiful. Speaking of secluded: be sure to have a car that can get you to these guys. You will drive down a grassy path that has rocks and mud (if it rains). We had a van that made it just fine, but it was definitely a funny adventure. Additionally, there isn't any air conditioning, so if you run pretty warm, just be aware. They had fans and with the windows open we were totally fine.
