I was travelling with Kamron, my 10 year old daughter. Considering that I didn't thoroughly plan out this trip, we went to the visitors' center in Santa Elena to ask for recommendations for a place to stay. I can't thank the receptionist enough for recommending this property. The owners, Heiner and Ana are the nicest people one could meet. They...

This place is a must stay, not because of the comfortable beds, the clean rooms or the generous breakfast, but because of Heiner and Ana, the owners. They were the loveliest, most helpful people we have met during our trip in Costa Rica. They literally bent over backwards to accommodate us, not saying that we are demanding, but everything we...

My husband and I spent three nights here in April 2012. The rooms are spotless, every shower I had was hot or at least warm, and the Lodge is away from the traffic of the town but still within walking distance to restaurants, grocery stores, and all the other amenities the town centre offers. The hearty breakfasts were an excellent...

Nice,very clean, and spacious rooms. Heiner and Ana are wonderful, and very, very helpful, and had excellent recommendations for tours and restaurants. Couldn't be happier! Had a laundry done there at a very resonable price. Make sure to ask Heiner about a bird watching tour with Freddy. We stayed at some much more expensive and luxurious places in Costa Rica,...

We contacted Heiner as Villa Lodge was number one on tripadvisor. Unfortunately the advertised rooms were booked, but he offered us an 'economic room', at a cheaper price. The room was fine - clean with private bathroom - we didn't want or need anything more, so we were very happy with the cheaper price! Heiner is very friendly and attentive....

My boyfriend and I spent one night at the Villa Lodge, and we wish we could have had more time. Heiner and his wife were awesome, they helped us book tours and recommended the best places to eat in town; they made us delicious coffee in the afternoon and we loved our breakfast. If we ever go back to Monteverde...

We like being slighyly outside the hubbub of towns so we get a less touristy experience. This place was perfect for us, about a 5-minute walk to the main part of town, so we could experience quiet and feel like we were a bit more amongst Costa Ricans. From the arrival we felt perfectly taken care of. Heiner was a...

Small family run lodge with excellent attention to customer service. Ana and Heiner are gracious hosts, making you instantly feel welcome and comfortable. The lodge is close to town and quiet. Breakfast was yummy. Heiner was very helpful with information and directions to activities / restaurants. The rooms were large and spotless.
