This uniquely designed hand built Hobbit Cob Cottage surrounds you with a warm natural ambiance that soothes the soul. Located in the dry tropical forest of Guanacaste at an elevation of 1,300 ft. you will find the climate very pleasant.

The space
One hour from LIR Int'l Airport, Centrally located to Miravalles Volcano with hot springs, canopy tour, hiking, and horseback riding. The Cacao Farm Tour (chocolate) is very popular with our guests. A scenic 1-hr drive to the rain forest gets you to this 4 hour tour that includes all the chocolate you can eat plus lunch ($60/person). The cacao nibs and dark chocolate bars are a favorite gift to take home.
Day tours to Palo Verde National Park 1-hr drive, Rio Celeste 2-hr drive, Pacific Beaches 1-hr drive, Rincon de la Vieja National Park 1-hr drive, Canopy Tour, Hot Springs 1/2-hr drive, and Barra Honda Nat'l Park (Limestone Caverns..2-3 hr drive)
This Hobbit Cob Cottage was hand built mixing clay, sand, straw, and horse manure; by foot into a doughy mixture, then set in layers upon layers until the desired height was achieved. The roof, supported by post and beams, was already in place so the walls could be constructed without being affected by the weather. With this type of design, your imagination is the only limitation. All of the materials used were from our farm except the sand. It took two years to complete...a labor of love that you will appreciate. Getting here by car is easy on totally paved highway.
Many guests enjoy just relaxing on the covered patio enjoying the view of the forest and valley below.
Miravalles Jorge Manuel Dengo National Park, previously known as Miravalles Protected Zone, is a national park and nature reserve just minutes away, which forms part of the Arenal Tilaran Conservation Area. The site contains the Miravalles Volcano, which is still active although the last recorded eruption was only of steam vents in 1946.

The site of a geothermal energy plant which uses the large underground heated reservoir to provide electricity.

On June 5, 2019, it was declared as the twenty ninth national park of Costa Rica
