Casa Verde is not just a place it is a state of peaceful being. Wendy makes you feel that her idyllic home is yours during your stay. The yoga, food and surrounding nature is impossible to describe, it has to be experienced. Our family loved being there, Wendy was an thoughtful and concerned host. Rich
I have traveled extensively during my 73 years, and Casa Verde (Wendy the owner) ranks outstanding in service, accommodations, food and activities....in fact the best. I was a female traveling alone from Chicago to Mindo Valley. Wendy said," I have your back once you are here" and she did. Wendy sends a very detailed list of what to expect and what to bring. I brought too many clothes but I will know next year when I return. Yes, this is going to be an annual retreat for me for so many reasons. I asked about a hair dryer before I came and Wendy tactfully told me that I wouldn't need a hair dryer. She been offering retreats for 15 years and has it down to a science She is a perfectionist and made sure my trip was everything that I wanted it to be. I also had my afternoons to myself to enjoy my beautiful cabin, reading, coloring with pencils and books that Wendy supplied, I tried embroidery again after a hiatus of twenty years and some days I would sit on the balcony and just enjoy the forest. The meals were amazing and easy to prepare. I got so many ideas for creating raw food when I got home, soups, salads, wraps ...each one better than the next. Treat yourself to an experience of a lifetime. After my first meal with Wendy, I went to pick up my bowl to take it to the kitchen. She stopped me and said,"No, I am taking care of you this week." How often does that happen in a lifetime on a vacation? She truly did take care of me. My stay at Casa Verde did not disappoint! …
If you are looking for a chance to get some “me time”, to treat your body and mind well, and to surround yourself in a pristine and beautiful environment, this is absolutely for you! Wendy and the team of Martin, Maria Jose, Anna, and others have created a wonderful sanctuary in the cloud forest just outside of Mindo. After a week of yoga, raw vegan food, forest hikes, and lots of learning, I left feeling more balanced, more physical and mental strength, and more informed on health. Thank you, Wendy, for a beautiful experience, and for sharing your guidance, knowledge, and many talents! In Casa Verde, you have something that is truly unique.
Wendy was amazing and very open, she shared so much in so little time. She is very knowledgeable when it comes to both yoga and food and is located in one of the most beautiful areas I have ever seen. Thank you!!🙏❤️
I've now made a visit to Casa Verde an annual winter trip to recharge, rejuvenate, and recharge for the craziness of modern life. Yes, I love it that much!! My most recent visit in December 2019 filled my energy reserves and, although I didn't realize it at the time, was crucial in preparing me to deal with some unexpected family issues when I returned back home. On my first two trips I stayed in Wendy's treehouse — which I'd highly recommend if it's available. On this most recent trip, I stayed in the main house, which was also lovely and very comfortable. Wendy is an amazing host and an inspirational teacher. I feel truly blessed to have gotten to know her over my multiple visits — and to have Casa Verde to retreat to year after year.
