Interaction with guests

I tend to leave my guests their privacy after introducing how the house and internet work.
I also help guests plan and arrange their adventures.
I am always just a phone call or text away and can always send the maid with extra towels or anything guests might need.

Other things to note

If you plan to Kite and Windsurf and you are not bringing your own gear please reserve gear and instructors with Ticowind before chosing your stay dates.

Helena's place is a fantastic spot to stay if you are looking to do things in the area like visit Rio Celeste and cloud forests. We were able to check in easily and got great recommendations for food and activities in the area. We loved the outdoor patio for the kitchen and hammocks for relaxing. We'd definitely stay here again if we were in the area!

My stay at Helena's Eco Adventure House was fantastic! She upgraded me to the main house due to construction around the cabina, and I was very comfortable throughout my time there. There's a jungle gully in the backyard, which provides a great vantage point to view nature. I saw howler monkeys and toucans on several occasions, and the sounds of nature were never too far. Also, the house is a great middle point between Rio Celeste and Monteverde. I used the home as a base to explore each park on different days, and I couldn't have been happier with the result.

Helena was wonderful! She upgraded the single room we booked to the entire house because of some construction that had been going on. The house was absolutely beautiful and Helena made us feel very welcome. She was very helpful in suggesting things to do and responding immediately if we had any questions or requests. There were many things to do in close proximity to her place but we mostly decided to stay in the area because it was just such a nice place to be. We enjoyed falling asleep every night to the sounds of the howler monkeys and birds.

This was a great getaway for my daughter and I! Helena recommended we rent a car, which we should have, but I didn't have the funds so we went without and the trip was still fabulous. Helena was able to recommend great transportation options and made every thing really stress free.
