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.

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!

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...More

About the neighbourhood
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.
