Casa Motmot was a great retreat for me and my family in Monteverde. It was excellent for wildlife spotting in a quiet setting. Heather was very welcoming telling us all about the things to do in town and provided some food for us a welcome gift.

We (2 adults, 1 8 year old child) loved staying here and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. The location feels right in the cloud forest and yet is close enough to amenities to pop out for dinner or pick up supplies. It does help if you have your own car (which we did), but I think that could apply to Monteverde generally to be honest. Heather provided some fresh fruit and bread on arrival which was really unexpected, and is a very pleasant and helpful host. Just sorry we didn't get chance to say goodbye properly when we left. The big window in the kitchen provides a great view of the surrounding forest / gardens and at night the sounds of the forest really make you feel you have gotten away from it all. The accommodation is very attractively done and I'll miss breakfast gazing out looking at the various colourful birds which alight on the perches.

Heather (and her lovely dog Rocco) was extremely welcoming, just what we needed after a very long journey. She provided us with lots of information about the local area and booked us taxis when our limited Spanish failed us! The place was actually even nicer than the photos suggested - great view of the garden and lots of birds would come and perch just outside. We could walk to a small neighbourhood with a great bakery, a pizzeria and coffee place in about 15 minutes and Santa Elena was about a 15 minute drive. Would definitely recommend. Pura Vida Heather! x

Heather's home was magical! The floor to ceiling windows in the kitchen really made me feel a part of nature, and the entire house was spacious and homey. Everything about this place was amazing. It was a little bit of a trek to walk to and from the little grocery store, but I really enjoyed it and became something I looked forward to in my day. I would recommend and recommend again!

Heather's home is beautiful with artful touches throughout - perfect for a romantic get away with a partner but could easily accommodate 4 people. Heather gave us great recommendations for restaurants and activities in the area, her communication was always quick and addressed any questions we had. Would 100% recommend!

Wonderful host, wonderful house, wonderful property! The pictures don't fully convey how beautiful this house is - you have to see it. We loved sitting on the deck upstairs and watching the birds (and the rain) and the windows in the kitchen were spectacular! It's probably easier if you have a car here because it's outside of town, but its walkable to most places (such as the Monteverde reserve and Curi Cancha) and we even did the walk from town in about 40 mins. Heather can also provide you with contacts for reliable taxis. Overall this was our favourite place to stay in Costa Rica and Heather was a great host - very friendly and very helpful! Also a great baker :)
