Beautifully landscaped farm in the gorgeous San Luis valley area. Natalia was very sweet and accommodating even though we arrived quite late due to getting lost. (Definitely follow the detailed directions they give you, NOT Google Maps.) She gave us a map and detailed recommendations about what to do in the area and how to get places. We only stayed for one night, but slept well and enjoyed the delicious breakfast the next morning. The only drawback within the casita was ants, but these are quite common in Costa Rica and weren't a problem until we accidentally left some open packages of food out. We loved looking at the plants and fish on the farm, and look forward to visiting again in the future.

My daughter and I loved or stay here! The property is beautiful -it is covered with lush vegetation and flowers. There are beautiful private paths to each cabin. The cabins are separated from each other and each has its own walkout balcony to overlook the trees and plants. The ecolodge is owned and ran by a lovely family; they were so kind, welcoming, and attentive to our needs. The restaurant had delicious farm-to-table food! Make plans to eat dinner here, you will not regret it! This property is perfect for those who want to visit Monte Verde but don’t want to be in the busy town, it is worth the 20-30 minute drive!

They go above and beyond with their service! They are a sweet family, with a lovely lodge. Pay attention to the driving directions that they send you and do not follow any gps system. Fortunately for us, Lelo and his family helped us overcome this mistake. We would happily stay there again! They’re breakfast is phenomenal!

The property is definitely one of a kind, very different from typical hotels in a touristy place. Located about 25-40 mins drive away from Santa Elena/Monteverde area through a road which is an adventure in itself (4x4 is a must), steep gravel road, and some really rocky stretch near the property. It is a family run ranch with the focus on eco sustainability, have cosy 4 independent cabins. The food was very tasty and authentic w/ locally harvested meat and fruits, and is made to order. If you love nature, calm settings, you are going to love it. There is not much to do in the surrounding areas, and like I said most of the attractions are bit of a drive from here. We enjoyed our stay with some driving adventure we would remember for long times. The family who runs the place, were really nice and helpful.

People are very friendly and nice . They suggest and help you plan your activities around the town . They serve excellent complimentary breakfast . Cabins look clean and nice . You can buy lunch and dinner at the property. Downtown is 25 mins away . If you have 4 by 4 car then it’s no problem to drive here . Roads are bad , fully rocky roads no Tar . Beautiful, calm and nice place . Only issue was bathroom water was not draining well but we didn’t inform them on day 1 for them to fix it else they may have fixed it . Overall nice calm place to stay away from the busy towns

My 12 year old and I stayed here for two nights. It was such an amazing experience. The cabin is new and very well kept. Lelo, Natalia, Jose, and the rest of the family are all super nice and helpful. We got a tour of the farm, ate amazing fresh food, and really enjoyed our stay.

The family has transformed their property into an oasis. They have tilapia ponds and chickens, grow vegetables and even have a soccer field. Short drive up to Monteverde, and the weather is a lot better.
