This is a very special place, ran by very special people. We feel extraordinarily fortunate to have found it. After nearly 60 days on the road - we truly found a gem worth sharing. The entire property is a botanical oasis and a feast for the senses. The owners, Kathleen and Pepe, seem to have poured heart and soul into the details. The cabin views are breathtaking, and the layout/setup/décor was very cozy, clean, and private. The breakfasts provide all you could ask for...all home-made to order selections, fresh coffee, the works! We could not help but enjoy an intimate and gourmet dinner at the property as well - and our expectations exceeded. Highly recommended to stay for dinner with this talented couple rather than driving the short distance to town. It is a short walk to the lovely Wilson Botanical Gardens. The knowledge and passion they shared with us about the local ecology, geography, history, and (of course!) botany was extensive and added much to our understanding of Costa Rica. The owners have that 'touch' where you are made to feel welcomed - but not 'waited upon' - more like friends than customers. These are among the warmest people we have encountered. Incredible value as travellers. Memorable experiences for a lifetime. Hope to be able to return. Just stay here.
