This is the perfect place to stay in Santa Elena (if you have a car). The self-built main house as well as the cabin are nice, spacious and clean. The family is lovely and helpful too. They helped us booking tours and provided delicious breakfast. Stay there!

This is the best place you can stay in at Monteverde for an authentic Costa Rican experience. Excellent location: private, quiet and secluded but close enough to walk to the heart of the city where all the action is. Tracy is extremely helpful in booking any tours you may want. And Teresita had the best cooking in town. Beautiful cabin and beautiful family. Thank you ❤️

Teresita and Eli have two lovely cabins that are situated on their property in a forest. It's a quiet and peaceful place and we enjoyed waking up to the sounds of birds, just a 15 minute walk to the town of Santa Elena. Teresita makes a delicious breakfast and is a very warm host. We would definitely come back again!

This is a hidden gem and was a wonderful experience. We loved staying in the rustic cabanas that Eli built. Terrisita cooked us breakfast to order: a typical Costa Rican breakfast or one more to American tastes. They were huge: eggs avocado Gallo pinto toast juice coffee and fruit. This is a warm engaging family. It's the best of all worlds, privacy in your own cabin and breakfast in the family home. We particularly enjoyed talking with the family. It was clean and we received clean towels each day. Even laundry. Our hearts were full when we departed Monteverde

Fantastic experience! Such a warm and welcoming family. The location is perfect for exploring the Monte Verde area and the cabin is comfortable. Having a nice hot shower to come home to after a long day's hike was awesome. Breakfast was a welcomed treat too! Don't miss out of the opportunity to meet Teresita and her family!

Eli and Teresita's place was great and I would highly recommend it! The cabin is a short walk through the forest from their house and it was clean and comfortable with a bathroom and refrigerator. Great if you want to relax in the woods. After staying in hostels and eating bread for breakfast every morning this was a much needed bit of relaxation! Tracy offered to book tour reservations for me and was very welcoming. Teresita and Eli were great to chat with in the morning and cooked me a great breakfast. Overall awesome place to stay in an awesome area.

Teresita and Eli were very welcoming hosts, and their cabin was both secluded yet walkable to town. Teresita provided a homey environment by cooking us a lovely breakfast and teaching us Spanish. The cabin was very private and it was nice to wake up to all the birds chirping. Great experience!
