Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Oscar was a very welcoming host for my girlfriend and I. Upon arrival we were even upgraded to a room twice as large as anything else we've found in Costa Rica. His estate was beautiful as well. The only downside was the lack of hot water.

  • excellent accommodation for this price! spacious room, linen and towels are provided. Larry and his father Oscar welcome you as if you were a family friend for years. somehow we ended up sharing breakfast, an amazing sunset, some drinks and I got all the information I was hoping for to explore the area. lovely stay, it made me not want to leave the country.

  • We have stayed with Oscar and Larry on our winter trip to Costa Rica, and this was the most welcoming and wonderful stay. The room is very cozy, and is pretty big - at least compared to many Manhattan apartments :) Larry is a great host, very charismatic and knowledgeable - he gave us great recommendations what to visit, and even arranged for some discounts and made reservation for us. Staying at Oscar and Larry's house was a real pleasure, and we would definitely stay with them again.

  • Wonderful place to stay! Beautiful views, and very close to the city. Oscar was so helpful and friendly. I don't think there's any other place we could have stayed in Monte Verde that would have made our experience as great.
