My husband and I stayed two nights with Carlos in Monteverde on our honeymoon. Carlos is an absolutely wonderful host and a very helpful guide to the area. He and his wife live at the house/farm and Carlos runs the Vistor's center in front of the property. He helped us chose and book our tours/adventures in Monteverde and had great recommendations. He also makes a beautiful breakfast, that is as pretty as it is enjoyable.
The B&B is on a magical peice of land just before you get to the little town of Santa Elena. They are on farm land with a garden, horses, kittens, walking trails, etc. Santa Elena is a great little town with a grocery store and lots of places to eat. Mostly full of tourists and places to book adventure tours. If you want to be able to walk to the town, this probably isn't the best option. It's a bit of a walk on an unpaved road, but an easy 3 minute drive or quick cab ride.
The room was very beautifully and thoughtfully made up and had a nice bathroom and shower. The bed was okay, but definitely not like our matresses in the U.S. The rooms are not far from the main road, but the road noise was not too bad. The biggest issue was that the walls between the two rooms are like paper. We could hear every word and every noise from the other couple staying there. It was pretty much like being in the same room with them. Thankfully, the couple was very friendly and their conversations were not a bother, but if you are looking for real privacy, it would be difficult to have here when there are other visitors.
Overall, we would definitely stay here again, and we would recommend Carlos's service and breakfast to everyone!
