Wir hatten einen wunderbaren 4 tägigen Aufenthalt in dem voll ausgestatteten und liebevoll eingerichteten Haus. Die Umgebung ist beeindruckend, Naturliebhaber kommen hier voll auf ihre Kosten . Aufgrund des angenehmen in der Nacht kühleren Klimas haben wir erstklassig geschlafen . Verpasst es nicht , Swins Empfehlungen über Aktivitäten in der Umgebung nachzugehen., es lohnt sich sehr . Swin und Jedy sind an Herzlichkeit und Fürsorge nicht zu überbieten . Nicht zu vergessen ist dekleine, große Hanoi der einen immer wieder zum lachen bringt und die schrecklich sympathischen Haus und Hofhunde die uns adoptiert haben . Vielen Dank für den unvergesslichen Aufenthalt bei euch, es war wunderschön !
What a beautiful and peaceful place for vacation. The property is serene and expansive with a great trail to hike and terrific views of the surrounding mountains. Swin was a terrific host, very warm and welcoming. A real pleasure!
A rustic little spot in the mountains gets you away from the tourist hustle and bustle. Swin and family are wonderful hosts and quickly respond to any requests or questions. The drive up takes you through teeny towns and past rushing rivers. The house is rustic and cozy and there is a fireplace, enjoy.
Our experience was great. Very nice people, experience and place to stay. Beautiful seperate home in nature, with own kitcken and two double bedrooms and a nice bathroom. Nice terrace also. Do not hesitate to visit swins place, cause they are very nice and help you find your way in the area. thanks guys! Ps: go there with 4x4 car.
My two friends and I stayed with Swin and her husband for a few days on a tour around Costa Rica and we had an amazing time. Swin and her husband were very welcoming and friendly, even helping to tow our rental car up the hill when we got stuck! They have a very friendly and energetic young son as well as two great dogs. Their house is pretty far from most things, so be sure to get some groceries before arriving because the nearest places to eat are about 20 minutes away by car. Also, a 4-wheel drive car is helpful for reaching their house, though we made due with our tiny Hyundai i10, though we did get stuck the first time. The property is beautiful and incredibly peaceful. The scenery was breathtaking. I would definitely stay here again.
Into the wild! beautiful location and superbly renovated place. The owners, Swin and Jedy, made everything possible to ensure the comfort of their guests. However, going there with a toddler wasn't ideal for us. The environment did not meet our expectations beside walks in the jungle there is not much to do in a walking distance. Since the place is very difficult to access we found taking the car on bumpy dirt roads was a hassle. We enjoyed the place for 3 days and looked for another destination.
We've visited about 5 different places while touring Costa Rica with our 9 month old baby, and our most enjoyable stay was most definately at Swin's beautiful property in the mountains. It's quite a hike up a bumpy road (by car of course), but is so worth the view and tranquility. We are very adventurous people by nature, but do appreciate the comforts of home when adventuring to different countries. Swin accommodated such request as providing a baby bath, and even a stroller if we needed one (try to get that kind of service at hotel) , but also advised us on where to go venturing, what fees we can expect to be charged for entry into Chirripo, what was going on in San Isidro (great Thursday market btw), and even where to stop on our way to Manuel Antonio, which was our next destination. Swin and her husband really made us feel like family. Should we decide to visit Costa Rica again some day, we will most definately look them up.
If you are looking for peace and quiet - this is the place for you. The house is very uniquely designed and is comfortable and pleasant. It has a fully appointed kitchen. You must have your own transport that in the rainy season must be 4 wheel drive. It takes at least 30 minutes each way from San isidro to get to the house. The water is warm not hot and the wifi is spotty. The hosts are nice and try to be helpful. This is a special place for someone who wants solitude.
Swin and Jedy are amazing hosts! This is a wonderful home nestled in the mountains near Chirripo National Park. The home is a great price for what you get. Two bedrooms with ample space. The kitchen was amazing, and you even get hot water in the kitchen sink, a rarity in Costa Rica. A lot of work and detail was put into the home. The property was stunning! There are plenty of hikes, and some amazing views. The property was gorgeous. We had the pleasure of having dinner with the hosts on several occasions, and Jedy graciously taught us how to bake bread! He even baked us some bread for out arrival. This was an amazing experience. There is plenty to do in the surrounding area. Highly recommend!
I was just one week at the finca of swin and her family in the mountains above chimirol. "Back to basics" this description is very aptly chosen, for this wonderful and creative ensemble of small houses, gardens and wild nature.
Back from the fruit- and vegetable shopping in San Isidro, excursions to waterfalls in the Cloudbridge or Chirripo national park, the dairies or small restaurants in San Gerardo, it was like coming home. In a separate guest house, fully equipped for 4 people and full of (French) peachiness, charm and warm atmosphere.
Also the kindness and care of the sympathetic young owner family and the 2 gorgeous dogs have given me 7 unforgettable days. Muchas gracias y pura vida!
