Looking forward to seeing you,
I had a relaxing stay at Casa Don Pedro with my wife and two young children. The house is very charming and clean. We were pleased with the good help from Pilar the caretaker who came out to find us when we missed the bus stop! Pedro called and his daughter stopped by soon after our arrival to make sure that all was good. There are three awesome hammocks on the porch and a nice outside dining table where we watched birds at breakfast time. The location is pretty far out of the mainstream which can be a good thing if you are looking to get away from it all.
Oh my god! This was fantastic!
If you're looking for something close to lots of tourist sites, this may not be your first choice, but we were looking for something quiet and relaxing, and this was certainly the place. The house is gorgeous, the setting tranquil, and the experience was fabulous.
Pedro sent us detailed directions to find the house, the housekeeper met us and showed us around, we could not have asked for more. Even the pair of chickens who walked through the yard each day were friendly.
The beds were comfy, the hammocks even more so. We left the windows open all night - kinda like indoor camping. And no bugs!
What more can be said? Frankly, we fell in love with this little Costa Rican retreat.
Our stay at Casa Don Pedro was lovely! We arrived late so it was a little difficult to find in the dark after a long flight, but their directions are helpful so make sure you read them carefully. The house was so clean and comfortable and they have hammocks which are perfect for relaxing on their peaceful porch by the garden. I would definitely stay here again!
Pedro could not have been kinder or more helpful in any way! He paid attention to the smallest details in order for our stay to be the most positive. This included arranging for a driver, wonderful Andre, to pick us up and bring us to the home. It was so beautiful and lush and green! Pedro's daughter and Pilar were there to greet us and show us around. I had the best sleep ever in the soft bed and total peace and quiet! We only stayed for one night...and what a blissful night it was!
Pedro and maria were really nice hosts and very helpful. They respond immediatly and provide a lot of support. We spend there our first night in costa Rica and the place is fantastic. A nice house in a beautiful garden. Absolute nothing to complain. During our first mornibg we already met parrots and colibris...
