“If you're going to spend any time in the Monteverde area, this is the only place to stay.”
Reviewed May 15, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

This beautiful, newly constructed home is close to Santa Elena, but is far away from all of the city noise and traffic. Located on a private farm, you see no other houses from the wrap-around deck other than the caretaker's home farther up the valley. The sounds of the water in the creek below, the birds in the morning and the frogs/insects at night are magical. The mirror image bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms upstairs are so spacious, are beautifully decorated, and have two walls of windows to take in the lush greenery that surrounds you. The view from the deck is onto a lush valley and hillside beyond. We commonly saw parrots, toucans, kites, and oropendola fly past the house. We spent a week at the house and explored Santa Elena Reserve, Arenal Volcano National Park, and booked a private bird watching tour at the Curi Cancha Wildlife Reserve (highly recommended, ask for Adrian). We also spent time hiking the private trails on the property. If you enjoy privacy and nature, but still want to be close to town and stay in a beautiful modern and comfortable home, you must check this place out. The pictures online do this home no justice. If I ever have the privilege of returning to this stunning part of the world, this is the only place that I would even consider staying.

“Perfect, private cloud-forest home with friendly owners and close to everything.”
Reviewed January 10, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We arrived later in the evening having to drive our rented 4X4 up the mountain in the rain and wind on the unpaved and pot-holed roads leading to Casa Mia but upon our arrival and for the 3 nights we stayed, we were constantly reminded that it was well worth the journey to this little piece of paradise!! Oscar and Juana were waiting for us when we arrived (and a little worried about us because we were later than expected) and welcome us to our temporary home complete with baked loaf, fruit and farm fresh eggs (chickens on the property!) and fabulous newly built home with all of the kitchen and comfort amenities you would want (including Wi-Fi). It is a large property and you can explore it at your leisure like your own mini-ecological reserve. My wife and two teenaged boys LOVED everything about Casa Mia and the Monteverde/Santa Elena area and we would not hesitate it recommending it to anyone looking for a safe, affordable and comfortable place to stay in the area. We will be back.

“Gem in Monteverde”
Reviewed December 5, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

I came across this property on a last minute search for a Monteverde rental. This property surpassed all expectations, at all levels.

This is a newly constructed property. It is impeccably decorated, in true Costa Rican style. The owners designed this rental to show-off the beauty of Monteverde. The huge windows offer a constant reminder that you are in paradise. The views are absolutely breathtaking! Believe me, the pictures on TripAdvisor do not do this property justice!

The owners are genuinely gracious and vastly knowledgeable hosts. From the moment we reserved our trip, we received several messages from the owner to facilitate our trip (driving directions), how to get our room key and other travel suggestions. Upon arrival, we were greeted with a freshly baked pound cake which was melt-in-your-mouth delicious and home made jams! The owners gave us wonderful tour suggestions to make the most of our short stay. We cannot wait to go back.

If you are planning a Monteverde adventure, do not hesitate to consider this property. You will not be disappointed.
