We stayed with 5 friends for 2 nights. The place is cool and special.
First of all Wendy and her family make the stay special. You are greeted with a fresh pressed welcome drink and Wendy tells you a little about the area.
The house is on a small street almost in the dschungle. The house is big, clean but basic. There is no aircon or fan. Master bedroom is huge and super nice with en-suite bath. There is one more bedroom and a another queen bed in the mezzanine.
We made a hike to a local waterfall that Wendy recommended and did rafting the next day. Both were super nice, especially because there is almost no tourists
This house is situated in a magnificent area. It feels like Costa Rica off the beaten path. The house is an ecological house in the middle of the nature. We saw and heard a lot of animals nearby the house. You have everything you need at the house, we missed only a chair or two to sit in the garden and the beds were not that comfortable. Wendy wasn't there at the moment we stayed there, but we felt very welcome because of her lovely family. We ate breakfast and dinner at the family house. The mom cooked us some great Costa Rican food! So you must definitely eat at the family house when you rent the house, it was really great value. They arranged the rafting, a great night tour and a walk to a nearby waterfall for us. We stayed here for 2 nights and that was enough to do the activities and to explore the region. But what makes the place so special above all is the family, they are really nice and friendly. We had great talks and learned a lot about Costa Rica! We were sad to leave and hope to come back some day.
This was an amazing experience. The house was cute, clean, authentic and right in the middle of nature. Wendy was incredible. She was a 5 star host and hide. We ended up doing several of her tours. Excellent. We had her all to ourselves. No tourists in sight. This is real Costa Rica away from the city. The meals by her mom was great. Wendy helped us learn some Spanish. Her knowledge on fauna and nature and local culture were a treat. This is the best place for a real Costa Rican experience.
My sister and me stayed the first 3 nights of our trip through CR and here was a wonderful start. The house is perfect for nature lovers, you have it all just around you, but you feel absolutely safe. Every morning and evening we enjoyed the short different tracks to the wonderful food of Rita and her warmhearted personality. Howlers and frogs in the night toucans and many other birds. Wendy books you tours if she is working outside. The area around is very good to make your first steps in a foreign country.
I went to Wendy's eco guest house in July with my parents, husban and my 2 kids (5 and 7 yearls old). It is definitly our best memory of our trip to Costa Rica. The family is so welcoming. My kids loved the animals on the farm and had the chance to milk the cow. The meal was a delight. The hawlers monkeys were right beside the house. We also saw toucans! If you go there, you absolutely need to get to the waterfall. I hope I can go back one day to see the hole family again!
