About This Listing
Amazing 5 bedroom two story log cabin home with incredible views of Poas Volcano and only 5 minutes away from the world famous La Paz Waterfall Gardens.
Huge spaces in our home in a rural community with best access to La Paz Waterfall Gardens just 5 minutes away. Experience the cloud forest first hand with trails and streams on the property along with stawberry and dairy farms.
There is a delicious bakery in front of the home, meals can be prepared in home, views of the Tres Marias Volcanoes, Barva Volcano and of course the Poas Volcano.
Interaction with Guests
We love interacting with our guests but also understand the need for privacy and rest.
Access to everything but yet rural. Small supermarket in walking distance, milk farms and strawberry farms very close by, many unique and affordable restaurants minutes away.
The bus that goes to San Jose stops in front of the property. Plenty of local restaurants with great food close by. La Paz Waterfall Gardens are less than 5 minutes away and Poas Volcano is no more 20 minutes away.
This is a no smoking house (it is a log cabin home afterall) but guests are more than welcome to smoke on the property as their ample room on the farm.
Tomas is a very helpful and kind host, who has helped with detailed answers to every small question we had - be it about the accommodation or what to do in the region. He was also very flexible in both arrivals / departure.
The house itself is in an amazing setting in the middle of the nature. One need to keep in mind bough that it can get cold in he nights, so bring long sleeves for evening and sleeping!
Although Tomas was not there when we arrived, he made sure our arrival went as smooth as possible -- after a long day of traveling we conveniently locked the keys inside the house after bringing in all of our luggage and Tomas was able to quickly arrange an alternative way for us to get back in. He gave great advice on things to do around the area and places to eat. His home was incredible and we loved waking up to all the sounds of the country!
This beautiful and spacious cabin near the Poás Volcano National Park was a wonderful place to relax and it exceeded our expectations. The home would make a wonderful getaway for a family visiting the mountains near San Juan, complete with a kitchen, several bedrooms and lots of space both indoor and outside for activities. What an amazing place.
The cabin is easy to find and is surrounded by charming dairy and strawberry farms where you can buy fresh food. There are markets within walking distance, restaurants nearby and a bakery across the street.
We plan to stay here again on our next visit to the area.
Lodge super spacieux à l'architecture typique. 4 étoiles il loupe la 5ème car la proximité de la route et le vas et viens des camions n'est pas des plus reposant mais malgré tout je recommande.
The cabin was very beautiful, rustic and spacious. It was a bit chilly as expected with the higher altitudes. The view was great from the cabin since you can see the volcano. We did not visit the Poas volcano since it was cloudy. La Paz Waterfall about 10 mins away was awesome. There was a lot to see, we took our time and spent 6 hours there. It cost $50 and a lunch buffet is included. It is was well worth the money. Tomas was a great host: very knowledgeable and accommodating. Tomas made great suggestions to local restaurants. We had the pleasure of having him as a personal chauffeur. He has vast knowledge of the country and pointed out many things. We learned a lot from Tomas ! We saw coffee plants, papaya trees, monkeys, different birds, sugar cane, blackberrys, mango plants, etc. He is a very kind person who dedicates himself to the local community. His experiences and accomplishments are very inspirational. We are glad that our proceeds will be going to a great cause such as funding the local highschool he opened up in Costa Rica. Thank you Tomas for the amazing experience!
Tomàs war sehr freundlich und hat uns viele Tipps für unsere weitere Reise gegeben! Wir waren nicht im Log Cabin da unser Flug Verspätung hatte und wir dadurch einen Tag später ankamen, aber Tomàs war so nett und hat uns in seiner Abwesenheit sein Haus angeboten. Wirklich sehr nett, vielen Dank!
Tomas was a great host. He made sure we had good directions and made getting the key at the bakery very easy. After a phone call he stopped by the house and was a pleasure to talk to about the area and places we should visit. The house itself was amazing, just what my family was looking for. It was a bit chilly, but that's to be expected in that area and he mentioned it to us before hand. Thank you so much.
