About this listing

The studio is a cozy upstairs space surrounded by tropical trees and looking over green pastures. Equipped with a king size bed, refrigerator, microwave oven, coffee maker, kettle and a full bath with hot water. Comfort and peace in the cloud forest.

The space

The Studio Apartment is upstairs and independent of the main house, with forest & garden views from the large space. A comfy and warm atmosphere will make you feel at home. The apartment has one king size bed, fridge, microwave, small toaster oven, coffee maker and all needed kitchen utensils. The spacious bathroom has hot water and soft towels.

There are beautiful gardens at our home and around the neighborhood. We are close to the cloud forest and hiking in Monteverde, the restaurants and shops of downtown Santa Elena, and everything in between. It is an easy walk into town, or a local bus or taxi ride to most destinations. If possible we are happy to pick you up or give you a lift. There is private parking behind a gate off the the main road if you have a car, but it is a nice walk into town or on nearby trails through the forest.

Weekly & monthly rentals on various rental units.

Monteverde is a magical place of rainbows and sunsets. Hiking in the cloud forest is unique. This area is home to three very important Costa Rican reserve: the Biological Reserve of Santa Elena, the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve and the Children's Eternal Rain Forest. Together they all make up over 30,000 hectares of protected primary forest in the Tilaran mountain range.This is one of the most biodiverse places on the planet - and you can choose from a great diversity of activities, restaurants and forest experiences while you are here.

We felt very well in Oscars home! The appartement is really big and comfortable . It's good located close to all important spots, we had an own car so for us it was very easy to get around. Parking slot is right on the apartment. Oscar and his supporter Emel are very nice and will help you with all your questions and needs. We would definitely come back!

Casa Balbi was a great experience for us in Monteverde. The room provided everything we needed for a comfortable stay, and the king size bed was such a treat. Oscar and his assistant Emel were very accommodating and helpful. It was a bit of a hike to and from town, but we enjoyed the exercise. The view from the property is beautiful with lots of wildlife. Thanks for hosting us!

We met Oscar's son, Larry, who was very helpful & informative! He welcomed us and gave a map of monteverde, and a little binder full of some recommendations for the area. the Monteverde area is a little confusing so the map helped us a lot. He pointed out all the best spots around and explained them all, helped us with any questions we had and even helped us get reservations for the Selvatura ziplining & hanging bridges! Extremely helpful and very nice guy. The studio has a homey feel & a nice view out the front door. If you're really uncomfortable with bugs this might not be the place for you, we found a scorpion in our bathroom and my boyfriend put it outside before we realized it had a bunch of babies on its back and they all crawled away outside! Pretty cool to see but make sure you have someone in your group that is brave enough to deal with critters!! But if you're coming to stay in the mountains of Costa Rica you should expect such visitors anyways :) I would definitely recommend this place!!

Thank you for your visit and for taking the time to review our humble home. Critters are a part of our surroundings and backyard, as you saw we are located in a very cool spot and have a wonderful backyard with access to trails and areas to explore. We appreciate your visit and time with us. All the best on the best on time in Costa Rica.

This studio is very cute and in a nice location where you can see lots of cool birds. It's a nice downhill walk to town (about 1 km). Oscar was great and helped us book a few actives including a night tour (which I highly recommend, we saw stuff we never would otherwise). I highly recommend this place if you want to have the feeling of being in nature while also being close to town.

Response from Oscar:
Thank you for your review. The forest that we have surrounding our home is magical, lots of birds and mammals as well, happy that you got to explore the trails at night too, the Nocturnal wildlife is a whole other world. PURA VIDA !

Oscar's home was exactly as described, nice quiet location, everything we needed in one large room. Larry and Oscar were both extremely helpful. Home is close to Selvatura where we loved the Hanging Bridges. We wished we could have stayed longer.

Our home in on site with 10 acres of farm land. It is so beautiful to live here and to enjoy the outdoors, we are very fortunate to have this opportunity in life and to also be able to share with others the beauty of Monteverde! For us it has always been so easy to help our friends that travel to Costa Rica to visit, we have helped on arranging travel in other areas of the country and to work out transportation or help in any way that we can with our local knowledge. We look forward to showing you our hospitality and share the magical forest.
