About this listing
Our delightful tropical house, with 2 spacious rooms available, is the perfect getaway for singles, couples, and families. With stunning views of the Sarapiquí River, lush rain forest, and beautiful tropical birds, we invite you to relax and explore.
We had a great stay with Steph and Carlos. They made us feel like at home. We even had a private Karaoke night with them and they took us swimming in the river. The breakfast is definitely the best we had in all Costa rica . My girls loved it and our visit to their place will stay in our memories forever. Thank you so much for your kindness.! You have given us a great time.
A very good mixture with Steph being from the US and Carlos from CR - communication was easy and extremely entertaining. Very outgoing hosts and a multicultural feeling.
They were very informed and could give great tips and recommendations. The room and bathroom were especially clean and lovely furnished with a great view of the river and the forest, although you could still hear the trucks from the street. Perfect costarican breakfast. We really enjoyed our stay.
We just stayed for one night during our trip. But Stephanie and Carlos are great hosts, with many helpful tipps and an amazing big breakfast. Muchas Gracias for everything.
We had a wonderful stay with Stephanie and Carlos. Stephanie was extremely helpful in recommending activities, restaurants and booking local tours. Both hosts were welcoming and we enjoyed getting to know them. The room was comfortable with a beautiful view. We liked their three, well mannered dogs. Breakfast was fantastic, thanks to Carlos!! We would certainly stay here again and wish we could've stayed longer.
Stéphanie et Carlos sont adorables, prêts à vous rendre service, ce qui a été le cas pour nous, ils nous ont réservé le rafting, activité très sympa dans le coin. La chambre a du charme et spacieuse, le petit déjeuner très copieux.
It was great staying with Stephanie and Carlos. Very helpful. Delicious costa Rican breakfast. Just be aware that they have three dogs. The dogs are very kind and they will be locked away if you are not into dogs.
Stephanie and Carlos are exceptional hosts! They are so welcoming and helpful. We stopped in La Virgen on our way to the Caribbean coast and we are so glad we did. We did a chocolate tour and hiked around some of the trails at Tirimbina. The room was comfortable and clean and Carlos made us a lovely traditional breakfast with fruit and gallo pinto - the works!
Thank you so much Stephanie and Carlos for making our stay memorable!
About the Host, Stephanie
Hello friends!! Welcome to our home. I am from the United States, and my husband, Carlos, is from Costa Rica. We currently live the beautiful rain forest region of Sarapiquí in Costa Rica. We love to travel and we love when people visit so we can share a little of our "pura vida" lifestyle. Beyond the physical beauty of Costa Rica, we believe it is the friendliness and warmheartedness of the people that make this a wonderful place to live and visit.
I was a teacher in the United States for many years before moving to Costa Rica and I currently teach English classes to local students. Carlos is a Zumba instructor and fitness coach, I lead local yoga classes and we give latin dance classes together. We live a healthy lifestyle and enjoy the outdoors and our local attractions. Our town hold lots of adventure with zip-line canopy tours, white water rafting, kayaking, tubing, safari boat rides, rainforest and waterfall hikes, bird watching, chocolate tours, indigenous museums and more!
We are located within a driving distance of just one hour from the Poas volcano, two hours from San Jose and also the Arenal volcano, and within easy access to Tortuguero and Puerto Limon. We have had the pleasure of travelling extensively, experiencing different areas, hotels, tours and activities all throughout Costa Rica and up and down each of the coasts. We provide travel services and are delighted to help you with your travel plans and excursions for your stay with us and assisting you with your extended travel plans.
Thanks for the visit, we look forward to meeting you. Pura Vida!!
