Casitas Tenorio is an amazing gem. It's a quiet, exceptionally friendly and relaxing venue. Anyone looking to truly unwind and decompress should visit Casitas Tenorio. You will not find anyone on the planet friendlier than Donald and Pippa. They both went above and beyond to accommodate my wife and I. I can't wait to go back to this incredible place.

Pip&donald are like Eve&Adam and their place is a kind of Eden. It's a must go, the atmosphere is truely unique. The breakfast is delicious, and the view from the terrasse is just stunning. For the visit of the Tenorio park, ask for Marlon, one of the best guide I had during my stay in Costa Rica.

Pippa and Donald are the type of people you feel happy exist in the world. Genuine, kind, responsible and happy to share all their knowledge with you, we couldn't have loved Casitas Tenorio more. Located in the heart of the rainforest (seriously, you open the window and there are just trees, birds, monkeys, etc etc), you feel joyful to wake... More

What a gem! Casitas Tenorio is beautiful, well-run, organized, friendly. The proprietors not only run this lovely little bed and breakfast, but also a functioning, full-on farm which plays roles in educational programs for local kids and schools. They are local leaders in the rural tourism movement, within which they work their butts off to not only run a great... More

As we drove up to Casitas Tenorio we were in awe. The casitas are set within a tropical paradise setting. From bird watching at breakfast, sloth searching along the trail, and listening for monkeys in the trees - not to mention relaxing on the porch to frog and insect song. Breakfast was a delicious Costa Rican style feast, inclusive of... More

Very friendly and great hospitality. We enjoyed our three nights with great pleasure and are all very enthousiastic about the lodge and the location. The local trial and farm activities were also attractive to the boys. Daytrips to the National parque of Tenorio and Cano Negro were excellent as well.

I wish I had planned to stay longer! The house was so nice! It was comfortable, clean, and had a small refrigerator, coffee maker, and microwave. It also had wine glasses! The breakfast was also great!

Casitas Tenorio was the absolute jewel at the center of our Costa Rica experience. The beauty of the lush, overgrown rainforest location dripping with flowers, birds, sloths and creatures is paired with the beautiful hearts of the hosts, who give each visitor a personal experience of a warm, authentic connection. We will never forget Casitas Tenorio and actually we could... More

Pippa & Donald are great hosts! They answered all of our questions about hiking the Tenorio waterfall/volcano area & how to get there. Lodging was as described & the breakfast was delcious. This was my families first stop upon arriving in CR. Only regret is that we didn't stay an additional night to explore the beautiful grounds they have.
