Bamboo House and separate apartment on organic coffee farm

Enjoy the Bamboo house with stunning panoramic views of Poas volcano and the Central Valley. This is a one of a kind living space designed by the great Costa Rican Bamboo builder, Martin Cato. The hand made bamboo ceiling soars to a glass dome that, at night, focuses the moon beam as it travels across the hand laid hardwood and stone flooring. Natural light illuminates the space from every side for a 360 degree view - see the wondrous multi-colored hummingbirds, butterflies, coffee fields, banana plants and grand colors of the Costa Rican natural surroundings. The house is set in the center of a five acre organic coffee farm. Very private and peaceful. Part of our vision is to live sustainable so the...

Interaction with guests
We split our time between Berkeley California, Asheville, North Carolina and get to Costa Rica as much as possible. We love learning more about organic farming and continue to grow in our appreciation for Costa Rica. We also really enjoy sharing our coffee farm and Costa Rica with others. In all likelihood, we won't be on-site during your stay.

Jose, our caretaker, lives on the farm with his family and he has often expressed his gratitude for the organic process. Jose is always happy to provide Coffee Tours and explain how the organic process works. He will also help with your transportation, washing clothes, and anything you need. Check out the reviews. Everyone loves Jose and we do as well!

Our stay here was absolutely beautiful. The place was well maintained and the caretaker obviously takes great pride in the job he does. Jose Luis was right there for everything we needed whether it was information on how to get around or arranging the transportation. He had interesting facts about the coffee plantation as well as Costa Rica itself. He...

What a wonderful place to stay! The photos of this little house do not do it justice at all. It is modern, clean, well equipped, private, peaceful and not too far from amenities. And best of all, there is Jose, who looks after the place and is a wonderful man! He came to us every morning and asked if everything...

Management response:

Thank you for your review and we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. We hope you or your friends come back and visit us in Costa Rica in the future. We are jealous you saw a sloth so close to the property that's great! Kim and Michael

What can I say about the Bambu Casita... Well we were quite unsure of what to expect and being our very first trip to Costa Rica we were not sure whether we wanted to book a rental on the ocean or in the hills. Our conversations with Kim the owner were very quick and attentive, and there was something comforting...

We're glad you had a great experience and appreciate the lovely review. Your experience is exactly how we feel about staying at the property and so glad that you felt...

About the neighborhood
The property is located on the way Poas Volcano near the town of San Pedro de Poas. The property is between a dairy farm on one side and a larger coffee farm on the other. 5 minutes to small grocery store. 1/4 mile off main road. We love walking down our road wth spectacular views of pastures and Poas Volcano. There is zip lining and trout fishing near by as wall as restaurants and tourist attractions on the way to Poas volcano. Don't forget about La Paz Waterfall Gardens. World class and a must-do! Lots of waterfalls to see. Ask Jose about taking you to Los Chorros. Check out our Attractions page for more information.
