Wow, what a remarkable place to stay! At no other place in Costa Rica we felt so welcome. Unfortunately Wendy was not there, but her parents and sisters made up for it. The lodge is spacious and clean, you hear all kinds of animals during the night and day. Breakfast and dinner are cooked bij Dona Rita and are really very special and delicious. One of Wendy's sisters joined us for dinner so we could hear about Coast Rican life and the environment. We really felt at home. And in the neighbourhood there is enough to visit and see. Do go there, you won't regret it. Hope to be back sometime.
Wendy"s Eco Guest House is Sarapiqui, Costa Rica was lovely wonderful new experience. Wendy designed the house with comfort and spaciousness in mind. Wendy's family cooked amazing meals. Our Uncle, my husband and myself all enjoyed hearing the howling monkeys and the feel and sounds of being in the rainforest. Next time we will try to stay for longer than 2 days. Thank your Wendy for sharing Costa Rica with us! I learned so much about being in a sustainable home that now I want to share my newfound knowledge at home.
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.
