Cozy mountain cabin, close to the Chirripo National Park and nested in an authentic Costa Rican neighbourhood, off the tourist trail, at an elevation of 3000 ft.
Our days are sunny & warm and the afternoons can be rainy, misty and cool with clear night skies. The cabin is part of a small non profit dog rescue organisation called ‘Charlie's Angels Animal Rescue’. Our guests should be dog lovers and would want to be part of a very cool charity project.

The space
The house is located in a tranquil village, close to the Chirripó National Park (about 15 minutes from San Isidro by car). The property has a huge garden with flowers, fruit trees and all sorts of exotic plants. Behind the house runs a little creek and there is a big mountain river right across the street.
Staying at Charlie's Angels Dog B&B is a very unique experience. You are always welcome to play with our cute puppies in the beautiful garden, take dogs for hikes up our picturesque mountain trails, help us to bathe the dogs in our open air bath tub and even choose a dog you might want to adopt and take with you by the end of your vacation! Our team will assist with everything related to flying a dog outside the country (only within the Americas). All our dogs are social, fully vetted (ie. vaccinated and dewormed) and flea free! :)
The entire rent you pay for your stay with us goes back to the project. You not only experience how it feels to take care of rescue dogs, you also help us to keep the project alive by renting our place.

The Casita is a rustic and very cozy, charming 2 bedroom cabin with either one queen and one king size bed, or alternatively one queen and two twin beds (the king bed can be divided).
The open planned kitchen is fully equipped with a coffee counter and bar stools. The bathroom has a warm water shower.
The sofa in the lounge can also be used as a comfortable bed for a single person.
Behind the house is a large terrance with two hammocks. There is an outdoor firepit, where you can relax around a campfire, under the stars...

The main house on the property, the Casona, is a large 4 bedroom house where our rescue centre manager and a couple of volunteers live.
The dogs live behind the Casona in a big kennel with a large grass play area and a roofed area for the dog houses.
The Wifi in the Casita is working great, we just updated it to the best available service. You will be able to stream movies or upload / download files.

Guest access
The whole garden, all fruit trees, the fire pit, parking area and you can always take a dog for a walk!

Rivas, San José Province, Costa Rica

Not a lot of tourists find their way to our little unspoiled mountain villages around the Chirripo National Park, which makes this area so authentic and unique. Mostly hikers, birdwatchers and nature lovers are attracted to this remote mountain region. However, there are plenty of activities you can enjoy with your family. We are located close to the villages ‘San Gerardo de Rivas’ and ‘Canaan de Rivas’, where an incredible butterfly garden in an gigantic dome is waiting for you. There is a fantastic selection of exotic butterflies to see. Right next to the dome is ‘Cafe Alergria’ where you can treat yourself to Italian homemade gelato, espresso/cappuccino and delicious cakes and snacks.
Always worth a visit are the Cloudbridge and Talamanca nature reserves, with beautiful waterfalls and hiking trails. You can visit the 'Bird House Cafe', or the local cheese farm, our artesian organic chocolate factory, a local bakery and a cozy restaurant called Batsu, where you can listen to live music and meet all the locals on the weekends. There are a few trout farms nearby and also thermal baths (some of the above activities are only accessible with 4x4).
We have a couple of weekly farmers markets in the surrounding villages and you can go horseback riding, paragliding, book a coffee tour and visit the organic farm ‘Los Gansons’.
The ‘Nauyaca Falls’, one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the country, is only a 45 minute drive. Dominical is the nearest beach and is a little surfer town on the Pacific coast, which makes a great day trip (only 1 hour by car from the Dog B&B).

Hi, I am Tania. I am originally from Germany, but I live with my husband Angus, our two dogs and three cats in the mountain of Costa Rica since 2012.
During your stay
It is totally up to you how much you want to be engaged in our project during your stay. You are welcome to be part of our rescue team and assist in the daily care of the dogs. But if you prefer to just be there as a guest and enjoy the beautiful surroundings, that's totally up to you. You can bring your own dog(s) as our B&B is of course dog friendly. Shannon (United States) and Marcos (Argentina) are our rescue centre managers and your hosts. They are always happy to show you around, tell you the individual rescue stories of each dog and also assist you with planning your activities in our beautiful area.
