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.
Sabalito de Tierras Morenas is a beautiful rural village but close to great restaurants and lots of fun day trips.
This is an expansive area with three different volcanoes, two lakes, and my place is in the central hub for visiting Rio Celeste , Arenal Volcano , Cañas river float nature tours and monteverde cloud forest,best to have a car here but there are local village taxis, private tour drivers and also networks of buses.
Relax and enjoy your stay.
Smoking is permitted on out door patios only where seating and ashtrays are provided.
Please ask if you need more towels, soap, or anything more for the kitchen that you might not be finding.
Helena was wonderful, super helpful and kind. The house was beautiful and quaint just what we were looking for. Definately glad she suggested a car a well. Pura Vida!
Helena has a beautiful place. My girlfriend and I were very comfortable here.
She provided quite a lot of material and direction as to things to do. All of which was very helpful.
Her response time to any inquiry was immediate which was important to us as we needed some last minute information
Although we didn't have the pleasure of meeting Helena (was our fault, she came by many times but we were always out exploring) she was always very approachable.
The distance from her house to the volcano and most of the activities was the only down side. That being said, the value was great. We didn't mind the drive to the attractions as the drive itself was beautiful.
All in all a great stay with Helena. Was sad to have not met her, but enjoyed our stay in her beautiful home
A very beautiful space in a relaxing and gorgeous part of the country. Lots of lovely things to see and do in the area including hot springs and the cloud forests. A very peaceful alternative to touristy beaches. Helena is very nice and helpful about what to do in the area. Recommended !
Helena is a wonderful hostess and her casa is very beautiful and comfortable. We stayed in a love casitas with an outdoor kitchen and living room that was beautifully maintained and lovely to look at. It was great to able to cook and lie around in hammocks enjoying the Costa Rican jungle around us. We'd definitely recommend it to anyone visiting the Arenal area as a beautiful place to stay away from the main road but within easy travelling distance to excellent food and activities. Helena makes great recommendations - our favourite was Maya's Place in Nouveau Arenal.
Excelente experiencia! La Helena es muy receptiva y está muy pendiente de sus huéspedes. Altamente recomendado
We had a lovely stay in Arenal and the home had a beautiful setting.I loved the outdoor seating area .We did not meet Helena but enjoyed our stay.I would recommend this place to other travelers.
As soon as I arrived, Helena was waiting for me outside a beautiful, picturesque, mountain top house. She welcomed me graciously and showed me around the property.
The street the house is situated on curves along the mountains right beside a tropical jungle. You get the best of both worlds here since this particular area is home to both the dry and wet forests. This means it's incredibly ecologically diverse with many different types of flora, fauna and animals.
The backyard literally kisses the edge of the jungle where you can relax in a hammock under the sun or stars and listen to the monkeys howl and the birds chirp. If you love nature, then you will also love the outside kitchen. Imagine making breakfast surrounded by trees, butterflies, sun and soft winds. There is an indoor kitchen too for those who rent the house.
From Casa De Helena, you are close to two or three volcanoes, hot springs, hiking, waterfalls, wind surfing and more. The house is quiet and feels secluded but you are actually close to many different attractions and shopping. She has a great book you can use to plan your adventures with information about different tours and restaurants in the area. The large book also contains telephone numbers for taxis and reservation numbers for tours so you don't have to Google everything. It's all there.
I initially came to Helena's to stay for one week and ended up staying three! I just love it here. It's like a little tropical oasis. And the fact that Helena is truly one of the most incredible people I've ever met is a huge perk too. You'll love her. She is absolutely wonderful!
Tatyana really feels like part of my family. I'm sure we will always stay in touch!
Air BNB is amazing because all these beautiful people from all over the
World are flowing through my house. There is a sense of connection and
