“The best hosts of our entire Costa Rica/Panama trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2012

Freddy and his family have made our time in St. Elena-Monteverde the best of our trip. We are three women traveling together and vote our time here very highly. Freddy does more to help and accommodate his guests than we have ever seen. We´ve had other very nice accommodations and hosts who also speak English and offered us tips but Freddy and family are truly do so much more for their guests than one would expect. We knew Monteverde would be a highlight, staying at Cabinas Eddy enhanced our time here even more.

We reserved a room at Eddy on a very rainy night, and Freddy, Eddy's brother, met us at the bus station to give us a ride at the hotel, even though the hotel is only 5 min from downtown. He also gave us a ride to the bus station at the end of our stay, at 6 oclock in the morning, after giving us breakfast and coffee. The rooms are small but spotless and with great views. The common areas are welcoming and confortable, and there is a small shared kitchen. All in all, highly recommanded.

What an amazing place, on a mountain side, falling asleep to the sound of cricket's, this place is what I think of when I think of truly relaxing and Tranquil Costa Rica.

Cabina's Eddy is run by Freddy and his wife with help from his daughter as well, they truly make you feel very conferrable. Freddy is truly a genuinely nice guy.

At $30 for a double room with a private bathroom, this place is by far one of the best deals here in Montaverde, an Amazing Breakfast is also included for that price.

The one complaint I do have though is the shower is not the best, but for 1 or 2 days, I think I can go without the best shower in my life for such a wonderful place like Cabina's eddy.

Delightful! You will not meet a nicer guy than Freddy, the owner of this cool place. He cooks an amazing breakfast, gets you the best deals on tours and transfers and is genuinely interested and friendly to everyone. He and his family deserve everyone's business!

We showed up in Santa Elena without reservations, and luckily found Cabinas Eddy after visiting a few other places that did not impress. It's conveniently located about a two minute walk down the hill from the center of town. For a really cheap rate, we got a private room with a double bed and TV, which was very clean.

We stayed for two days and really enjoyed it. Freddy and his family were very helpful with anything we needed - probably the nicest person we met in Costa Rica! Also, the homemade breakfast was amazing (especially the banana pancakes), and they even served it around 5:15 when we had to leave early one morning.

Couldn't recommend this place more -- amazing value!

We enjoyed our stay at Cabinas Eddy very, very much. The atmosphere was very familiar. We got good tips which made our experiences in Monteverde unforgetable.
Thank you so much!

We stayed at Cabinas Eddy for 2 nights in December 2011. We were extremely impressed with the value that you get at this family owned hotel! The room was very clean and we had a balcony out front (with hammock!) that we could relax on after hiking. The hotel is centrally located in Monteverde and is just down the hill from a supermarket and the main restaurants. We saw numerous tropical birds in the tree right in front of the hotel. Breakfast is included and is very filling and delicious!

The owner/manager Freddy is not only one of the nicest people I have met in Costa Rica but also one of the most genuinely nice people I have ever met. I told him at the start of our stay that I had always wanted to see a sloth. After not having much luck, we were at the Ranario Frog exhibit when Freddy ran over to get us. There was a large two toed sloth hanging on the powerline in front of the hotel!

Freddy arranged all of our tours for us in Monteverde and even got up at 5:30AM so that we could have breakfast before a tour! I highly recommend this hotel and the family that runs it.
