Here you have the opportunity to rent a "bare bones" yoga facility. It is rustic but clean and comfortable space. Sleep to the sounds of Rio Naranjo and awaken at sunrise (Amanecer) to the sounds of song birds. 10 Miles EAST of Quepos.

The Space

This price is for the privacy of renting the entire facility, 4 bedrooms, sleeps up to 12 people.

The Master Suite has 2 bedrooms, full bath, kitchen, dining area and salon (sitting area). The Master suite is block construction and fully screened. El Liriso has a double and set of bunk beds. Jasmine has a double and individual. A large tiled patio offers a dining table, rocking chairs and hammocks, it's great for bird watching. Think of it like a big H. The patio connects to the mini-suite with 2 more bedrooms. Both room have their own sinks, and the shower has hot water. The mini-suite has tiled floors and block walls to 2 feet with large screened windows. The poetry room has a Queen, Sunset has a double and individual. The Yoga floor is above the "casa vieja". Maid service can be added at $20.00 a day.
We are close enough to enJOY Manuel Antonio National Park, but worlds apart. Discover the real Costa Rica in Londres! Londres is a typical Tico pueblo of 1500 people; with 2 mini-supers only 100 meters walk, a "soda" (cafe), full service restaurant-bar, plus parks, futbol (soccer) field and local bus service. Most of the "adventure tours" sold in Quepos actually take place out here: rafting, waterfalls, horses, ATV, repelling, zip lines, and birdwatching. There a nesting pair of Scarlett Macaws across the street, and the Titi monkeys have been on site enjoying the fruits of the finca.

The new 12'x 24' Yoga floor is upstairs. This can double as massage area or sacred space. The rich dark wood floor and bamboo construction is surrounded by Night Blooming Jasmine, offers a view of Rio Naranjo and the 7 lush acres of paradise on the finca. The creek pictured is the southern limit of the property.

Rio Naranjo, across the street becomes a lazy river (Dec-April) and there is a creek on site (if you want to go skinny dipping). Only 40 minutes by car (on a dirt road) to world famous Manuel Antonio National Park. Quepos is a typical tourist town with lots of restaurants and shops, only 20-25 minutes by car (40 minutes by bus 7 times daily)

This is the Pura Vida (good life) life for sure, disconnect from stress, NO TV, no cell phones, and this is a NON-SMOKING FACILITY. We have ICE "High Speed" (512K ) WiFi (sometimes). Just enough to stay in touch. We tend to play lots of games at night and have interesting Videos or bring some to share.

We have been operating since 2002. You'll find lots of happy clients on TripAdvisor, Happy Cow and other sites. We are in transition to a full Eco-commUNITY and transitioning out of the daily room rental market. You may now rent the facility on a monthly or annual basis. You may also play in the gardens and cut flowers for your room.

Suitable for Events. YES the Bamboo Cathedral by the creek is suitable for outdoor weddings, fiestas and sweat lodge. If YOU want to host your own retreat or workshop, please let us know and we can make arrangements for you to rent the entire facility, discounts available May-Dec 15. I can refer caterers, and transportation as well as book tours.

Guest Access

Interaction with Guests

If they rent the entire facility, I can stay on site to provide concierge service or leave. Guests choice. Also one extra, room could be available for the leader.

The Neighborhood

Londres is a typical Tico town and it is SAFE to walk around, even at night There is a "soda: (small restaurant) and the well stocked Mini0Super is open from 06:00 till 8PM. Lots of friendly people to practice your Spanish with.

  • Elena's place is quite special, it's secluded, which made it a bit tricky to find, but it's surrounded by nature and very nice and pleasant. She showed us around, made us banana bread baked in sun oven, and we had a lot of interesting talks. We also met all kinds of interesting people staying at her place. Over all it was a wonderful experience that we won't forget.

    Response from Elena:

    Thank you!! Yes, it is an "Experience" not just a hotel. And Londres is such a sweet Tico town. I am so glad your family was able to discover something other than "Hollywood on the beach". Hope to see you again real soon. Paz y luz, siempre...

About
This house is part of an Eco-Community. I have been guardian of the land since 2002. I guess you can say I am a visionary. I believe you can live better simply. I have taken an abandoned property and turned it into a 6 bedroom, 3 bath home with 2 kitchens. All connected by a common patio and Yoga floor above. The farm had been neglected for 10 years. Now, the campgrounds outback have allowed many young people to do their "journey work" as they discover life outside the box. We are planting pineapple, papaya, bananas and the vivero (nursery) is coming to life with tomatoes, cucumbers, garlic and more. I truly enjoy sitting on the patio, birdwatching and sharing "a Lust for Life" while living in harmony with neighbors and nature.
