Tere is a bus station at 2,5 km but the road is really climbing and hard so we don't recomend to come without a vehicule.
Other Things to Note
We recommend a 4x4 to get to our place and to visit freely all the area and the country.
Dieser Ort war wie der Himmel für uns, nach dem langen Trip über die heiße und feuchte Pazifikküste. Das Anwesen, die weiten Ausblicke auf die Berge, das milde Klima - perfekt. Im Nachbarort Canaa gibt es eine kleine Schokoladenproduktion und ein Tico der Schweizer Käse produziert. Das Cloudbrigde Reservat ist super zum Wandern und dazu noch kostenlos. Alles unbedingt besuchen! Wir sind gleich noch eine Nacht länger geblieben. Swin und ihre nette Familie haben enorm viel dazu beigetragen, uns so wohlzufühlen. Vielen Dank nochmals für den netten Abend, eure Hilfsbereitschaft und Herzlichkeit. Die Zeit bei euch, werden wir nie vergessen.
Le logement est agreable, bien agencé et équipé.Nous avons adoré sa terrasse avec sa vue, ses fleurs et les colibris. Le lieu est reposant et le jardin magnifique. Nos hôtes ont été accueillant et chaleureux, plein de bons conseils.
This place was perfect! Would definitely recommend it to anyone trying to experience the Central Valley. Felt amazing there, with good vibes and energy. Exactly the type of gem that you want to find using AirBnB. Hope to come back soon!
This little cabin was simply amazing. It is far up in the hills (4x4 required) and has complete privacy and a cool refreshing breeze. The cabin is hand made and has so many amazing little touches that make it unique and very welcoming. The fireplace is wonderful, the front porch and view is beautiful and the open and airy design makes it so relaxing.
Swin was very helpful and a very friendly host.
This is a must stop if living in or visiting Costa Rica as most people don't ever get to live in the clouds.
We will be definitely returning.
This was our first airbnb experience and we could not have imagined a nicer one! The property is more beautiful than the pictures. The location is serene and yet alive with nature! This is Costa Rica at its finest.
We slept very well and enjoyed the solitude and privacy - when we weren't exploring the neighboring shops and town. Did I mention it was the rainy season? It made absolutely no difference - the weather was still remarkably comfortable.
Swin was the perfect host, generously answering all of my many questions about life and living in that beautiful, remote location. The home had everything as described, all in excellent working order.
Thank you Swin. We felt very welcomed and hope to return someday soon!
Merci pour votre accueil. Votre maison est parfaite aménagée avec beaucoup de goût et très très bien équipée. Il ne manqauit rien. Le lieu est fantastique et très reposant. Nous avons passé un séjour formidable.
Three of us (mum + two young adults ) stayed here. We all loved it. Took Swin's advice and bought all food supplies with us (SJ market and Maxiplus in San Isidore) and enjoyed cooking in the very well equipped kitchen (including small freezer box). Drive from SJ easy, on good roads. Our Suziki Jimny hire 4WD was perfect for track to cabin and to Cloudbridge reserve (peaceful walk, waterfalls and nearby cafes on the way). I had never driven 4wd before but I am a confident driver. It's worth the 'exhilarating' drive. Swin and her young family very welcoming, do take up her offer of a stroll in her amazing gardens. Spent a lot of time sitting on the terrace, often with Swin's friendly dog, with close up views of Hummingbirds and Tanegers, and further away large carrion birds riding the thermals in the valley between this house and the mountains in the distance. We enjoyed the goat and cow cheese we bought at Swin's recommendation. Climate was hot but not humid and plenty of shade, cooler at night so no problems sleeping. A few bitey insects (as to be expected), praying mantis and crickets which try to creep inside and only one alarming spider (which was as scared of me I'm sure). Swin is a speedy and helpful communicator via message board. She is very graciously tri-lingual but if you have some french or spanish I am sure she would appreciate that. Good phone signal but internet rather intermittent so don't rely on it for entertainment.
About the Host, Swin
.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.
