Marieke and Jared were unreal hosts! From the beginning of the trip, they both made us feel like friends of theirs and constantly checked up on us to make sure we had everything we needed. They let us use their ATVs whenever we wanted to go off on excursions or to venture off to find a dinner spot (food was... More

I stayed one week with Lucero and had the best time in Santa Teresa with them. The super friendly Marieke and jered made my stay as i were with friends. The hotel Griss was amazing: the pool, super clean room and good breakfast.

Their responsive communication throughout my stay was super helpful, especially as a solo traveler and first visit to Costa Rica. My accommodations were just what I was looking for. Quiet, private, clean and... More

We had a wonderful time, and felt highly taken care of by our hosts Marieke and Jared. They struck a terrific balance between curating our trip for us, and giving us time to experience the area on our own. They were highly responsive to any and all needs, and volunteered to have an Easter Egg hunt set up for us... More
