This is a humble farm! quaint and comfortable. a far cry from the city life. we have LOTS of animals...4 cats, 8 dogs, 12 chicken, 8 ducks, 3 turkeys, 4 horses and 28 cows. staying here would intail a small amount of caring for the animals...food and water. although we do have a worker that can take care of them. We have a dorm with 3 sets of bunkbeds..new. another more private sleeping room with a double bed. everything is very open...kitchen with all the basics...micro,stove,water cooler,wok,rice cooker, crockpot, bread maker, blender,refrig etc..2 dining tables. an indoor hammack and in the dry season 2 more outside. 3 rocking chairs out in the corridor to enjoy the view. 2 seperate toilets and one shower room. T.V, washer, computer. this is a great place to relax and get in touch with yourself...reading, art, writing, taking pictures, bird watching and walking. This 35 acre farm is very private and has a very large private river throughout. more info ..google....queseraseracostarica
we are located in a very small community of 74 people with a small store and bar. we have neighbors across the street..some make honey and others sell cheese. you can walk for hours any direction and experience the natural wonders of costa rica...the tropical plants, beautiful birds and animals and the friendly people.
There is a very good bus system that can take you any where.
If you rent your own car...you are only 1 1'2 hours from the beach, 2 hours from the capital and 45 minutes to the coffee fields of potenciana... or shopping in puriscal or orotina in an hour.
My daughhter and I moved here almost 6 years ago. We are originally from Oregon, U.S.A.
We love to travel and experience new cultures. I like to read, and write books. I also enjoy art and theatre. We both love music,dancing and movies.
My daughter is 17 and is attending high school online. I was an elementary school teacher for 7 years. Now i focus on learning and working the farm.
When we moved here we only spoke english...however, we now speak both english and spanish. Well, honestly i must admit...my spanish is more of a spanglish. Don´t ask me how..but most of the people here seem to understand me....if i speak really slowly hahaha.
We have guests come from all over the world to visit and work on our farm. This is through a program called Willing Workers On Organic Farms. It has been alot of fun getting to know new people from around the world...although we have always been here. We see this as a wonderful opportunity to be the visitors once in awhile. And to allow other people to get away from their monatany and experience a little of ours. Hopefully after a wonderful taste of someone elses world and much needed vacation..we can bring back a freshness with in ourselves and towards our many goals for the farm.
