Great place in the rain forest of Costa Rica. I saw a bunch of different animals and an awesome time here relaxing. The deck in the back of house is a really great spot to spend time.

A beautiful tropical forest surrounded our room. We heard howler monkeys on the first night and saw pouson dart frogs several times. Thierry was a great host, very helpful. He left fresh fruit for us in the room, nice touch! We were glad we stayed here.

A cheap 3 minute taxi ride away from Quepos, this apartment was the perfect hideaway nestled in the rainforest yet close to Manuel Antonio park and most activities. Thierry was the ultimate host. He took us on a mini tour of the area, gave great recommendations, and even booked our zip-lining excursion. The apartment is no frills but cozy and the deck hugs a jungle where we were visited by monkeys one morning. The line of communication with Thierry was open, honest, and convenient. The coastal town of Quepos is a humble fishing village with very few tourists and great character. Enjoy the food and the people then take a short bus ride to the park for rainforest tours and immaculate beaches. An unforgettable experience!

Thierry's scenic abode was delightful and just the way we wanted to end our trip in Costa Rica. Thierry was super accommodating, kind and very knowledgable. Thanks!

Thierry's place is perfect. We were warmly greeted by him with recommendations and fresh pineapple and OJ. About 15 minutes later, some white faced monkeys also warmly greeted us! His place is very close to Quepos and not a far drive to Domincal and other beautiful secluded beaches. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Thierry's place is a dream. It was a very private, beautiful little apartment. Every morning we would wake up and drink tea on the balcony or read in the hammock. It's so peaceful. We saw cappuccine monkeys playing in the trees right behind the house. Thierry himself is extremely helpful and kind. Best airbnb host I have had. Very available for any questions or help. Quepos is a beautiful little town. The pace is slow and peaceful, lots of good cheap food options and also a couple finer dining ones. There's a gorgeous bay right in town but it's better for surfing. The swimming beach is a quick bus ride away (10-15 mins). Its breathtaking and wasn't too crowded at this time of year. All in all we had an incredible time. Can't wait to come back in future. Thanks Thierry! :)

I highly enjoyed my stay at the Nature Lover’s apartment. It is in a pretty private location; it is a cute and clean studio that backs against the jungle. The place is actually a bit bigger than the pictures show. It is not in walking distance to the city center, but it is very easy getting to and from town without a car. Thirerry was a fantastic host! He picked me up from the city center and gave me a mini tour of the town before taking me to the apartment. He was happy to answer any questions, and he gave great advice. With his help, I even got to enjoy some local live music, which was a bonus for my last night in Quepos. If you don’t feel like going into town there is a beautiful walking trail located on the property, which I enjoyed exploring. Pura vida!
