My wife and I chose to stay here because we were looking to avoid the tourist experience and this property exceeded all of our expectations. The views from this villa are amazing, the staff is great. The owner is extremely helpful and friendly. He can help arrange activities at his ranch (like horseback riding) as well as help coordinate adventure activities off site near La Fortuna. I have actually recommended friends and family to travel to Costa Rica specifically for this property / experience. It was by far the highlight of our trip and we could have stayed here the entire time.
