If you are looking for relaxed days in an easy going environment away from the tourist areas its worth giving it a try. We spent a few days there, the kids enjoyed the horse riding, milking the cows and playing with the dogs. The hosts are really easy going, giving you perfect tips for tours and nice spots to see. We spent long evenings with them, having a beer and listening to stories about the land and the culture. The breakfast is simple, local cheese (loved it), milk and bred from the farm. The rooms are basic, but clean and functional. We did a long morning hike to the hills and the forests, watching a lot of animals. Of course the mornings start here with birds and howler monkeys. WLAN available in the "Lobby". Thanks Brigitte and Leon, for this unforgettable days.

Bridgette and Leon are two of my favorite people I met with my family while we were on our 21 day vacation in Costa Rica during June 2017. We stayed several nights here and it gave us time to explore the areas of Tambor and Montezuma. Bridgette recommended Curu' National Park and I'm so glad she did because we may have otherwise missed it. It's one of the best locations we found on our trip for wildlife viewing and there was hardly anyone there! We had the entire beach to ourselves and there were howler monkeys in the trees with babies, as well as lots of lizards running around, raccoons, deer, and other critters. We had hoped to spot a croc in the river but couldn't find one.

The beach at Montezuma was BEAUTIFUL. We walked quite a ways on it and, as Leon suggested, we visited the gardens of a high end secluded resort that is along the beach-- he was right, they are beautiful.

Bridgette had suggested that we take a ride over to Santa Theresa to watch a sunset. We got there in time to pick up a pizza and take it to the beach for the sunset.

We had a great time at Fidelito Ranch and, if we ever return to Costa Rica, I'm sure we would return to the ranch.

Room Tip: I doubt there's a bad room! Great location

We, 2 adults and two older children, stayed in one of their two apartments for 5 nights in April 2017. The room was spacious with two doubles and a sofa bed, a basic kitchen and a large bathroom. Outside was ironwood decking and then a grassy area with loungers. The apartment was very clean with insect screens on all doors and windows. The owners were very helpful, suggesting places to go and assisting with bookings. We especially liked the (free) tour of their farm given by Leon. In the trees around the apartment we saw many birds, including Scarlet Macaws and some iguanas. This is a really lovely place.

perfect farm stay for our family of 5 (kids 7,8 and 11)!!On our way coming from Tamarindo. Kids loved the horses, cows and farm dogs. The owners have been super supportive to make best out of our 2 nights stay. Brigitte helped with tips for trips to local attractions Montezuma and Banana beach (both around 30-45 min) and made it possible to havea 2 hour horse back riding for our riders, During that time the rest got a special farm tour with the owner Leon. We picked fresh lemons from the tree and visited the cows including two new borns. The whole stay feels like visiting friends at home. We sit together at breakfast and in the evening. The guests are international. During our stay there have been families from France, Canada, Costa Rica and Colombia, which is no surprise as the owners are fluent in English, German, French, Dutch and Spanish. Highly recommended if you want a farm stay in that region. Cross fingers we can make it back one day! Thanks for hospitality

We booked 5 nights and we felt so good there we decided to stay all the rest of our vacation. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, and the kitchen is very convenient, especially with a young kid. We were woken up by the sunrise through the trees l, the bird songs and the monkeys calls. The Tambor beach is desert and is probably the only beach safe for young kids (no waves). The area is not touristic at all but you're at 30 minutes from more popular beaches if you miss the crowd.
The hosts are fantastic and very welcoming. They took a lot of time to let our son connect with the animals of the farm, an experience he's not about to forget.
A wonderful place
