“Unique home, beautiful property, great for nature lovers!”
Reviewed 11 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

Our family of 5 (2 adults, 3 children) stayed in this home for 4 nights. It was easy to find with GPS coordinates provided by the owner, Gloria. Communications with Gloria were excellent - from the welcome emails prior to our arrival to checking in with us to ensure we'd settled in. The house is spacious and well-stocked with housewares and some basic cooking supplies (oils, herbs and spices,etc). The grounds are beautiful with all manner of plants, some fruit trees, and even pineapples growing in various spots on the grounds. Birders will love the wide variety of bird species that can be seen right from the patio - we also saw an agouti (large rodent) walk through the garden daily. La Paz Waterfall Gardens is a short drive away, and a couple of the waterfalls can be visited from the main road, without entering the gardens. The views from the road are spectacular as well. I would advise arriving during daylight hours as clouds/fog can take over the road at higher elevations making driving difficult. Highly recommend this home for a relaxing stay and a home base for day trips to the various local attractions/activities. We would definitely consider a repeat stay if we return to the area in the future.

“Awesome!”
Reviewed 21 February 2018 for a stay in January 2018

This was a great place to stay. Plenty of room and comfortable. The house has a safe, secluded yet open feel. The owner gave us some pointers for shopping in town and the markets were very friendly. We prepared a great meal in the well equipped kitchen and had our pick of several covered outdoor settings to eat. The kids had plenty of room to explore and play. They were super excited when we spotted both Toucans and Howler Monkeys in the trees on the property. We hope to visit again.

“A perfect stay in a stunning house with a great host”

Gloria´s house is just stunning. The bathrooms and the kitchen have a spectacular design AND are working as well :-)
There are rocking chairs, a sofa and a bar which make it comfortable to sit, read, play or eat. Every room has a door that leads outside.
I think the sitting area around the house is best of all. During breakfast you see several kinds of toucans and lots of other birds, sometimes we saw (and heard) howler monkeys in the trees. You can always find something to eat if you take a stroll through the garden.
Although it´s pretty secluded there is a paved road leading to the house.
In the house you´ve got a dishwasher, a washing machine and a dryer, which are always handy.

And Gloria herself helped us a lot in making our stay ane even more pleasant one. She once even did a daytrip with us and took us swimming to a local waterfall with noone else there. A place we couldn´t have found without her.

Thank you Gloria for everything, we very much enjoyed your company and being guests in your house!

We stayed 4 nights and it was quite a wrench to leave. Great place, Really well-equipped with everything you could need. On the very (very) wet day we sat on the veranda and watched the huge array of birds who visited the 'feeding table'. Lots of different seating areas, including hammocks. We felt that a car was pretty essential here, but you may not. Village has bakery, butchers and supermarket. Lots of fab places to visit in the area. We loved it.
