The Space

Our peaceful location is outside the hustle and bustle of the tourist center of Santa Elena, but town is a short and pleasant walk away.

Our eco-friendly home is simple and personal. You will be living with our family but have your own private bedroom with a comfortable bed. For many years we have had students in the area come stay with us -- we love sharing our home and life with travelers from all lands!

Eli built our home here in the forest, where we can listen to the the abundant life of the mountains of Monteverde. You'll find peace and tranquility here, but have easy access to enjoy the town's restaurants and activities.

Let Eli indroduce you the orchids on the trees outside the front door, and the hole where the toucan babies live. Teresita will love to help you set up tours, call taxis, and plan your trip to this beautiful area.

We are happy to provide a Spanish Immersion experience, but daughter Tracy speaks excellent English should you need it.

Guest Access

Please feel free to use our kitchen, gather eggs from the hens, and enjoy the living space.

Interaction with Guests

Our home is small, so there's plenty of opportunity to interact. However, you should feel very free to simply be quiet and private in your own room.

Getting Around

Taxis are inexpensive and plentiful, and are the way most people get around in Monteverde. In addition, the public bus from San Jose/Alajuela passes right by our house two times each day on its way to Santa Elena and Monteverde.

We can also help you arrange private transportation to anywhere in Costa Rica.

Other Things to Note

Teresita makes the most delicious tortillas in all of Monteverde.
