Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Thierry was very hospitable, and we really enjoyed our stay. It's ridiculously easy to get into town from his place, but far enough away to be secluded. Thierry was generous, bringing us fruit and snacks when we arrived and immediately bringing us a new chair when we broke one of them.

  • Very nice and clean house in a beautifull area. Thierry is a great guy and very helpfull. If you are staying in the Quepos area this is the place to be!

    April 2014
  • Thierry is a wonderful host. He is very concerned about the comfort and needs of his guests. He picked me up from the hotel and drove me to Quepos and waited patiently while I did some grocery shopping on the first day. He provided a phone for me so I could get in touch with him from anywhere. He referred me to his dentist and drove me there for the first visit. He is fluent in French, Spanish, and English.
    The apartment is right in the jungle and I was able to watch four kinds of monkeys, many birds and a pair of acuti.
    It was a great stay!

    April 2014
  • Our stay with Thierry was great! Definitely recommend him to anyone going too Manuel Antonio/Quepos and will definitely go back when in then area again. His apartment was private, clean and comfortable and had HOT WATER!:) We loved sitting out on the porch in the hammock and reading at night and listening to all the noises of the jungle. Thierry himself was so hospital. He picked us up when we arrived off the bus in Quepos and took us into town the first night and even gave us ride when we were leaving... He provided good tips of local knowledge and was so sincere in trying to make or stay more comfortable. When we were in town if we had questions about how to get around etc. people took care of us because we were 'friends of Thierrry's' ... Definitely stay with Thierry if you are visiting Manuel Antonio!

  • Thierry was a very nice and helpful host. He told us how everything works and even given some fruits, coffee and milk upon arrival. The rooms were nice and clean. There was even hot water, which is not of course in Costa Rica. Thanks for everything! Greetings from Austria!

  • If you are going to be in the Quepos/Manuel Antonio area, then you must stay at Thierry's Nature Lovers. Thierry was always in communication with us and answered all of our questions (and we had many). Also, we got a little lost on our way down from San Jose and arrived into Quepos after dark. Thierry was sweet enough to offer to come and meet us in town and escort us back to his place. Thierry had amazing suggestions as to where to go in the surrounding area. He sent us to all of the best places to eat and the best beaches too. One could say, He was a great and gracious host. We enjoyed meeting him very much. His place is right up against the jungle, giving it a tree house feel and to top it off, one can find amazing hiking trails right in the back yard. We had all of our best Monkey sightings in Costa Rica within walking distance and even from our own terrace, while eating breakfast!

    Thank you Thierry!

  • Thierry a été un hôte fabuleux ! L'appartement était fantastique.. de plain-pied dans la forêt vierge, avec tout le confort nécessaire. Depuis la terrasse et dans la propriété, j'aurai finalement vu plus d'animaux qu'à Manuel Antonio. Mon seul regret : ne pas être restée plus longtemps : Quepos permet d'explorer à la journée de multiples endroits, et l'appartement de Thierry est un havre de paix où dépayser et se ressourcer, à l'abri des quartiers 100% touristiques pourtant pas très éloignés. J'ajoute enfin qu'il n'est pas nécessaire d'être motorisé pour circuler à proximité, tout se fait facilement et rapidement. Bref, que du positif, et l'envie d'y retourner !!

    December 2013
  • Thierry was a really nice host! He picked us up from the bus terminal and welcomed us with fresh fruit. My husband and I enjoyed our stay and definitely recommend this accomodation.

    November 2013
  • Thierry, the host of the guest house, was extremely helpful and pleasant. The house sits in the middle of a beautiful forest. If you are a nature lover and want to hear the sounds of nature this is the place to stay. Also very close to canopy tours. In fact we participated in this experience and Thierry got us a discounted price. I highly recommend the place.
