Monica + Humberto + Teo
A most unexpected and pleasant surprise. We were received by Teo's parents in their fabulous, one-of-a-kind house, incredibly designed and built by his father Humberto, an architect. Fantastic food, environment, company, beds, bathroom, living room, hearth, garden, coffee plantation... After leaving the awful San Jose and its traffic, you could not think of anything better.
Amazing hosts! A great atmosphere and stimulating conversations. They make you feel right at home... even lend you their socks if you happen to forget a pair. I will definitely be coming back!
First of all, we want to mention that Monica and Humberto are really great hosts, they treated us like part of their family and were really lovely. We especially enjoyed the Tamarindo juice, Monica made for us :) We felt very comfortable staying with them and should have stayed longer.
The house is just beautiful and we had a wonderful walk with Humberto and the dogs on their coffee plantation. This was very interesting... besides that the house is located in Tres Rios and a good starting point to visit Irazu and Carthago.
We enjoyed our time a lot and we can really recommend it to everyone...
I spent a great night at Teos parents!!!
They are very warm and open people.. We had great conversations in spanisch.
The rooms and the bathroom are beautiful, everything was very clean. The bed was very comfortable and the dogs and the cat are so cuite and friendly.
Breakfast was great with a lot of different fruits, cereals, toast, coffee, cheese and many more.
I would book an overnight stay again! Muchas gracias para todos!
Even arriving at night in Costa Rica, we easily found the house from Monica and Humberto. Both of them were so heartily and helpful. The house and the surrounding garden are really Beautiful. The room is very comfortable. We were really feeling at home! We made a beautiful walk together in the coffee plantation. We highly recommended the house from Monica and Humberto to all people enjoying calm and personal accommodation.
