Pros: - Swin and her family are super nice and helpful in arranging your stay - The property is gorgeous, like a garden museum - The hiking path is AWESOME. I saw 2 ~4 ft long black cats (perhaps jaguarundi, not counting tail length), a coati, and 2 other sets of noises, perhaps from a white-lipped peccary (grunting at me from very close) and another from a type of monkey (researched the noises and talked with separate animal rescue center staff afterwards, so best guesses!). Amazing. - Talamanca Reserve nearby is *unreal*. Do the whole trail. Took me about 4 hours at an easy pace with stops, not for the out-of-shape though. Cons: - You MUST have a 4x4 to get up their ~12 minute road/driveway. A car will not cut it, even if it's 4 wheel drive, it won't have the rock-clearance.

We had the most amazing time staying with Swin! Only regret is not staying four times as long. Her location was beautiful, with a wonderful 4km hike available right out the back door. The area around Swin's house had a lot to offer as well. Make sure to check out the cheese place she recommends in Cannan- amazing cheese, amazing people, amazing prices!

This was a beautiful remote home that sits in the most lush green mountains next to such a clear river. We absolutely loved it. Swin wasn't there when we were but there were several times I messaged her and she immediately responded. Even very late at night. We didn't rent a car (even though Swin highly recommended it). I can see why! The home is up a very steep road. We still enjoyed exploring by foot. We had hoped it was closer to Chirripo but it was still about 4 miles from the park entrance. The people in the area were kind and friendly. We loved being able to buy fruit from homes on the main road. Swin has a great binder full of information that was extremely helpful. It was a beautiful home.

The Chirripo Valley was one of my favorite places to stay in Costa Rica. Completely surrounded by huge mountain landscapes, the location is easy to find and just far enough from the town to feel carefree and total privacy. Swin was a fantastic host, giving us good recommendations and keeping the house stocked with everything we could have needed. We had a delicious lunch at Vista al Cerro in Herradura after visiting the hot springs, and also enjoyed our visits to the local artesanal cheese and chocolate shops. The host, her family, and the local people are some of the kindest people I have ever met. Thank you for the wonderful experience!

Swin and her family were absolutely delightful. The home is beautiful and there is nothing quite like waking up to the beautiful sounds of nature. The 4WD is absolutely essential, but the road is a BLAST. What a great drive. Best to get there during the daytime. Second right after the church in Chimirol, not the first. The locals are lovely. Swin is a brilliant person. I highly suggest this great spot.

I'm not even sure to start. Swin's place was nothing short of amazing! We arrived late at night and were given a very warm welcome. The home was very nice, super clean and had everything we needed. We had just come from Tamarindo, which was hot and overpriced and way too touristy. Swin provided us with a list of great restaurants and fun things to do. We went on hikes in the beautiful forest only a 10min drive away and it was so quiet and peaceful. Swin and family were super sweet... and not to set the bar super high but they had the cutest puppies and who doesn't love puppies. On our last night there it was raining and she lent us umbrellas to walk the property -- she said that we had to see the view and take a walk -- absolutely. breathtaking! We were in Costa Rica for 10 days and our 4 days at Swin's were the best part of the entire trip. I plan to return next year.

Swin is awesome! And the home is a true treat. A beautiful retreat type home nestled ontop of one of the beautiful mountains near chirripo.

.J’aime ma famille, la nature, le calme, les riches rencontres que la vie nous offre, le cinéma, la lecture, marcher, faire de l’artisanat, voyager. Je ne pourrais pas me passer de soleil, de rire, d’être en pleine nature, de lire, de chanter.
Aimant voyager et rencontrer les gens du voyage on s’est décidé à ouvrir un lieu de location de chalets et de rencontres entre voyageurs. On aime recevoir les gens chez nous, faire en sorte qu’ils se sentent tout de suite à l’aise, en famille. On aime faire ces petites attentions qui je pense, font la différence.
