“Beautiful”
Reviewed February 24, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We stayed at Las Marias Cabins while visiting Santa Elena. We were met by Elberth in town and showed us the wqay to this wonderful property. We satyed in the cabin in the back of the property which was very quiet and comfortable. The place was imacculate. Everything you need is there. Elberth made us feel right at home and welcomed us with open arms. I would highly recommend this location.

“This special, tucked away bird oasis is a quiet retreat on the outskirts of St Elena”
Reviewed January 5, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

My idea of a great vacation is being in the midst of the country I'm visiting. I'm not a resort person when I travel unless that's what I'm going away for. I traveled to Costa Rica to see this country that I heard so much about and meet the people. Las Marias put us right in the middle of where we saw the best and most birds-Toucans, Magpies, etc. A real treat!

The cabin is beautifully built with views in all directions-some of the magnificent distant mountains. Simple yet complete there is everything thing you need to make meals, hang out, sleep in comfort and simply exhale into the country.

The owners-Elberth and Alexander couldn't be more gracious and accommodating. They meet you and check in with you as well as provide great naturalist hikes into the area, the national forests and my favorite the Night walk. It is dark in CR!

You can't go wrong with staying at this cabin if what you are seeking is quiet, simple accommodations and a place to truly relax.

“Beautiful cabin in Monteverde area”
Reviewed October 7, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed at Las Marias Cabin for a few nights, and everything was wonderful. It is a brand new cabin with a fully equipped kitchen, which was great for cooking instead of going out to eat. The property is very peaceful and we saw many birds during our stay. This is a great place to stay if you are looking for a place close to town, but without all the noise that comes with being close to town. The owners grew up in the area and can answer any questions you have. I would definitely recommend Las Marias Cabin, and am looking forward to my next visit.

“Birdwatching.. at the best!”
Reviewed September 30, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Stay for 3 nights in this small but beautiful cabin. Kitchen full equiped, away from the town but surround by the forest. I went only to do birdwatching and the place was amazing, toucan, bell bird, blue jay, trogon and many many more... I recomend this place if you have a car, at the end it-s only few minutes driving in a dirth road. The owners very helpfull and nice, the Price for night is very good for the quality of the cabin.
I will be back next year.

“Beautiful cabin in an amazing location!”
Reviewed September 18, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed at Las Marias cabin for 2 nights and it was fantastic! The location is very private and quiet - and the views from the deck are amazing. Beautiful mountain views with refreshing breezes and great for birdwatching and stargazing.
The fully-equipped kitchen was especially nice to have for cooking meals and having morning and afternoon Costa Rican coffee!
The interior is very clean and spacious with high ceilings and lots of natural light. I would definitely highly recommend Las Marias and am looking forward to returning next year!

“Tranquilty at its best - we felt inside the forest!”
Reviewed September 7, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Brand new cabin (finished in August 2015), with beautiful mountain views!! Lots of green! The property is over an acre surrounding the house. Lots of wildlife, birds (keel billed toucans), white face capuchin monkeys, butterflies, agoutis; we even saw an armadillo! With room for 3 people (two floors), a full kitchen and full bath. Less than a 10 minute drive to downtown Santa Elena. The owners are excellent local naturalist guides, so ask them about birding tours. Will definitely come back!
