This is a family run B&B, just outside Santa Elena. Owned and operated by Carlos and Paula, and we were lucky to have found them!
Carlos, who also manages the Monteverde Welcome Center next door, was a fountain of information and had answers to all our questions. Plus he was playing a great selection of songs on the patio!
Paula recently hand painted the glass panels on the entry wall to and gave it a nice tropical feel. Our room was a kitchen and two bedrooms, one with a bathroom. Nice, Paula's strategically placed flowers looked good and smelled nice. The breakfasts she served us were delicious, fresca fruta, and the rancho huevos on the wavy plates were both beautiful to look at, as well as to eat!
Carlos is working on a design to make the walls more soundproof, right now, they're a bit thin. A bit less noise from your neighbor will be good.
Outside is very nice too. They have a organic garden behind the house, west of the mango tree. Then you continue on the Sunset Trail thru an open field for a view of the land. You can rent horses here also, from a relative of theirs.
All in all, great place to stay, great people!
