“Esther is a lovely, helpful host. We booked the same day as arrival and arrived late in the night. Esther stayed up late to help us find the apartment. It's very nice, once you find it. It's right off the main, paved road through Guápiles. However it's not noisy at night, perhaps because of the air conditioning in the bedroom, or the super comfy bed. The bathroom has warm water, everything was clean and pleasant. Check in was easy once we found it. There's basic kitchen appliances so you could cook, if so desired. Not scenic in any way but totally functional if you're needing a bed for a the night between San Jose and the Caribbean side.”

“One of our tour guides was very surprised we were going to stay in Jimenez and thought it was a waste of our holiday as there was nothing special to do there. He was right about the last bit, there is not much to do in the town, but this accommodation made up for it big time. We used it as an overnight stay on our way back to San Jose but we're pleasantly surprised. The host was extremely friendly and helpful. The accommodation is beautiful on a wonderful piece of land which she show us around on. All kinds of flowers and plants and animals. We had a wonderful breakfast all in all we did nog regret staying there! It was so authentic!”

Like taking your home with you on vacation, except you probably don't have howler monkeys. There are local activities for everyone taste. Both both units for groups up to 11 people
“A summer house where it is really nice to stay, in with nice decoration and out with a large garden. The house is well located to go to Tortuguero or other sites to visit. Donna is really nice and she gave us many tips.”
