Formidable séjour grâce à l'accueil chaleureux de Tarsicio et sa famille. Il est très disponible et propose son aide pour le choix et la réservation des activités. Une partie de la maison est en travaux mais les chambres et partie communes sont agréables. Le petit déjeuner est copieux, appréciable pour les journées de balades, l'eau de la douche est chaude. Nous recommandons casa Alquimia pour l'accueil et la bonne ambiance de la maison.
Tarsicio was an amazing host! Honestly wish we were able to stay longer! If you like the wilderness this is the place for you! Tarsicio right away started sharing all the great things that Monteverde has to offer. Tarsicio even started arranging pickups, restaurants, and activities for us to do. He was so helpful and genuine. We also had the pleasure to meet his family. They were extremely nice! Oh and the breakfast!!! Papaya was sooo fresh! Truly an amazing place!
Good location and the hosts are very accommodating. Helped us with the booking of the tickets and gave recommendations which were helpful.
The place is still under construction, but don't let that keep you from staking there. It is a very nice and comfortable place well situated. Tarcisio was bery helpful arranging activities and suggested some great places and restaurants to visit.
His entire family was very welcoming.
Tarsicio and his wife gave us a warm welcome and all the information we needed to enjoy our stay in Monteverde. The house was beautiful (all made out of wood), working wifi, hot water, and our room was very homey. The kitchen was nice because we could cook our own meals, which we did for both dinners during our stay. The location is close to many of the reserves, and we were able to walk to the Monteverde Cloud Reserve in about 40 minutes. When we left, Tarsicio called us a taxi which showed up quickly and took us where we needed to go. We loved the provided breakfast of fresh fruit and scrambled eggs, and we very much enjoyed our stay.
Casa Alquimia is within walking distance of Monteverde center. That said, keep in mind that Monteverde is tiny and remote. I recommend a four-wheel drive because Monteverde is only accessible via a bumpy dirt road. Casa Alquimia is not completely finished, but the AirBnB rooms are finished. The accommodations are simple and rustic. Tarsicio and his wife are helpful and kind hosts. Tarsicio can make reservations at the various parks for you. This is an affordable base of operations when planning to spend most of your time outside in and around Monteverde looking for wildlife. You may need to try several places and different times of day to spot birds and animals.
Lovely host, but only half finished building.
We had a great time at Casa Alquimia and the Tarsicio was really helpful in booking our trips; however I don't think it is clear from the description and images that this building is not finished. Flooring, joinery and soft furnishing are all missing in places, but the place will be really nice when these are completed.
This was our first time ever using AirBnB and we couldnt've asked for a better experience!! Tarsicio was amazing from the moment we introduced ourselves until the time we departed ways. Our room was clean, we had a separate private bathroom and we were also given keys to lock our room and to have access back and forth into their home. We had tours scheduled really early in the morning and he still made sure he was up early enough to make us breakfast. It was a very enjoyable experience and we would definitely stay with them again the next time we visit Monteverde!
We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Alquimia Artes and wish we had more time to stay. Tarsicio and his wife were incredibly kind and provided a warm and comfortable room for our stay. Tarsicio booked a tour of the Monteverde Cloud Forest for us and was kind enough to accommodate an earlier breakfast time for us so we could make our tour. We hope we can stay again and for longer the next time we travel to Costa Rica.
This airbnb was excellent!
I went out on the town with Stefan who was a volunteer at the casa and a new friend.
It was a Sunday night and the dance bar, something "Amigos", filled up with locals and tourists and we all danced and had a decent time.
Monteverde is a quiet town. I did the extremo zip lines and it was one of the best decisions I could make. Thank you Tarasicio for being a good host and recommending it to me!
Shower was great, bed was comfortable, place was clean. I was happy to be here for a night.
pura vida thanks for all!
