We’ve been fortunate to travel to all corners of the earth and ironically the Coffee Estate Inn remains one of the few places we continue to return to because it is so incredibly special. We’ve been enjoying Jane and Barry’s hospitality for at least seven years but like the previous reviewer, we had not been there is a couple of years. The remodeled bathrooms are truly a luxury with the rain showerheads and the heated floors. What a wonderful addition!
As always, it is nirvana to wake up from a comfortable sleep on a king size bed and look out the window to take in the magnificent view of Vulcan Baru. Start the day with fresh roasted coffee and juice from oranges just picked the day before and sit on the balcony and take in one of the truly great views in all of the Americas. Take the second cup of coffee and stroll through the beautiful trails on the property enjoying the myriad of tropical flowers and hundreds of varieties of birds. What a way to start the day!
If all you are looking for is a roof over your head, this is not the place for you. It is the place if you want to relax, rejuvenate, reconnect, recommit or get in touch with yourself and nature. This is the perfect spot for honeymooners, anniversaries, or as an escape from the stress and demands of the work world. With only three bungalows, the privacy is fantastic. You actually feel as though you and you alone are staying at your private coffee estate. We came for four nights this visit and ended up staying for a full week and left feeling we had been pampered and one with nature again.
Jane and Barry are phenomenal. As every reviewer has stated, they are unique innkeepers. They truly care about their guests’ experience and that translates to top notch accommodations and service. Much has been mentioned about date night dinners which are excellent, but we would add a plug for the “no frills suppers.” Arriving late in the evening after very long three connection flights and transfers, we decided it made sense to pre-order the comfort chicken pie with a salad for myself and a dessert for my husband and a glass of wine. It was one of our best decisions. After sinking into our favorite bungalow, the Jewell, Barry delivered our delicious dinner which made us forget about all the hassles of flying, driving etc. for almost 24 hours. It may have been the most appreciated glass of wine I’ve had in ages. If you arrive late, by all means order one of these suppers.
The reviews for this property are always long because it seems you just can’t say enough about how unique and special this place is. Five stars are not enough for this property. It is truly luxury in the jungle and not to be missed.
