Words in no way can describe the great feelings felt when we returned for our fourth visit at Casitas Tenorio. After some time travel abroad our hearts and souls felt that strong tug from the tremendous memories created while staying with Donald & Pip at Casitas Tenorio. What more else is there to say about what we feel is the...

This was definitely the highlight of our trip to Costa Rica. We stayed at the newest Casita El Sol, which was great. Pip and Donald are amazing hosts - not just in terms of their own property, but they also put us in touch with a tour guide, set up a frog tour, recommended local restaurants, and are just genuinely...

Delightful stay in a beautifully built casita. Daniel, proprietor, was awesome. Fresh farm breakfast served each morning on a deck looking out on trees filled with beautiful birds. Toured the working farm... goats, guinea pigs, chickens, roosters, milked a cow, and fruits and veggies, too. Daniel, proprietor, was awesome and helped us procure cheese made from milk from his farm....

We so enjoyed our visit that it was hard to leave to move on to the beach. I had emailed directly about rates and since I was dealing directly without using a 3rd party and paid through PayPal, I was given a discount off already very reasonable rates. Right after we checked in, Pippa and Donald, the owners, made a...

We stayed two nights and wish we'd stayed longer. We heard about the rio Celeste hike and searched places to stay in the area. Casitas is just great. You are in a small primary rainforest reserve surrounded by farmland. The rio hike is nearby as are more activities than we had time for. We chose the smallest of the casitas...

This place is very nice, the owners are very friendly and they make you feel at home. The location is great as it's very close to Rio Celeste. We have a great time staying there! My son loved playing football with the local kids! Highly recommend!

Pip and Donald were excellent hosts. The property and cabin are both beautiful. They even walked us around the property to help locate sloths and monkeys living on the property. We would love to stay here again

This was the very first place we stayed at on our first trip to Costa Rica. To say that Casitas Tenorio was a beautiful and serene environment would be an understatement! It is located in the small town of Bijagua (where Donald the owner grew up) and minutes away from the Rio Celeste park and waterfall. Just up the road...

“I loved the spacious casita we stayed in. Look on line at the pictures on the web site. Ours was set in amongst the trees.”
  • The casita was really lovely with a high ceiling and a great patio.

“Not sure what a "room tip" is but if you sleep lightly bring ear plugs - Costa Ricans love their dogs but keep them outdoors, free roaming, and sometimes, not all nights, but some nights the neighborhood pets can get noisy.”
