Breathtaking views and private, tranquil setting. Outstanding company with Tom and Sue! Staying the first few nights in Costa Rica for the first time, Tom and Sue, were the best hosts and set our trip up for success. Tons of information about the country, people, places, ins and outs etc.

The food, views, company, and atmosphere that they create was a highlight of our trip!

I loved waking up and starting our day by sitting out on the veranda with the most delicious breakfast, coffee and great conversation.
So much more personal than staying at a hotel.

This is definitely a place that we will return and highly recommend!

San Ramon is a charming city, and Vista Valverde is absolutely beautiful, settled on lovely mountainside. The cabins are lovely, have plenty of privacy and AMAZING views. The food is the best I have ever eaten!

Susan and Tom are superb, gracious, and entertaining hosts along with being exceptional chefs. They delighted our palates with fine wines and the best meals, highlighted with entertaining sing-a longs accompanied by Tom's guitar playing.
Willy's Cabin is a exceptionally delightful hideaway for a couple, high above the property with views of the green valleys all the way to the blue ocean of the Gulf of Nicoya.
We highly recommend taking the opportunity to visit with Susan and Tom at Vista Valverde. Norrell and Kathleen

This was our second visit to Vista Valverde...still impressive and enjoyable. Besides the beautiful views, the accommodations are top notch, whether you stay in a cabin or in the guest room in the main house. Tom and Susan are fabulous cooks and hosts...making their guests feel welcome and special in a relaxed, easy-going atmosphere. Everything about the visit was enjoyable, especially the impromptu songfest after dinner led by Tom on the guitar. Yes, we recommend it, and yes, we would go again in a heartbeat! Rod and Joan

This place is unbelievable. Beautiful views, full 360 degrees. You have a perfect view of Golfo de Nicoya and Puntarenas. 45 minutes from the SJ airport, this location would work as your "first night in and last night out" too. We stayed an entire week and loved it. Easy drive to and from the airport. Great central location, home base for getting to Volcan Poas, La Paz Waterfall Gardens, Sarchi, Zarcero, and beaches. This is a B&B with two rental houses and one private room. An outstanding breakfast is included. Only five minutes from downtown San Ramon with numerous restaurants. I am not a birder, but I think one would be happy for hours sitting on the porch watching all sorts of birds fly by. This location seems to be a pathway. Not our first trip to Costa Rica, would put this among the best places to stay. Will definitely return.

Room Tip: You may choose from a two bedroom cabin or a one bedroom.

Highly, highly recommend! The view is amazing! We stayed in the separate house: totally private with private driveway, new, clean, nicely decorated, huge windows, 2 bedrooms plus accomodated our 5th person with an air mattress, 2 bathrooms, kitchen, small living room but the BEST part is the private huge outside deck (tiled floor with covered roof). Our house had a vase of fresh flowers, plate of freshly baked cookies, bathrobes, plenty of hot water, wifi. Susan & Tom built both the main house & separate cabin and have planted over 500 plants. A winding gravel road up the mountain is lined with beautiful plants. We drove the 5 minutes to town (San Ramon) to pick up pizzas & drinks and sat outside on the deck to watch an amazing sunset in the mountains plus you can see the water (Gulf). The view was spectacular!!!. Breakfast was all homemade and delicious - eggs, rice, fruits, muffins, juice. Tom is a laidback, very interesting conversationalist. We stayed here on our first night in Costa Rica (didn't want to drive in the dark) and wished that we could have stayed longer!

Vista Valverde is lovely. We stayed in Willie's Cabin and it was first class. There is a wonderful covered patio with chairs to watch the sunset, full kitchen and bath (granite countertops) with a sitting room for relaxing. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and sit on a mountain top with views to the coast. Tom and Susan are gracious and accommodating hosts. The food was excellent. The location is centrally located for days trips to see volcano's, Cloud Forest or the beach. We definitely will be returning. On our next trip to Vista Valverde and we will just spend more time relaxing in our room and on the patio.
