About our home

Our very basic, wood house with cement floors and windows everywhere is bright, comfortable, roomy. The yard is grassy and flat, great for playing (including a ground-level fort, climbing trees, and rope swing), and surrounded by flowering plants that attract hummingbirds and butterflies. 1 minute walk to a natural foods store and coffee shops, yet very quiet and private. 10 minute walk to 2 cloud-forest reserves, or free trails into the woods behind the house.

Monteverde is a world-famous cloud-forest reserve and an incredibly welcoming community. Fresh cool mountain air is a refreshing break from the beaches. When hiking and enjoying some of the best biodiversity in the world has filled you, you can also go for zip-line adventures, bat museum (1 minute walk from the house), amazing restaurants, and community events galore.
