We were looking for something off the beaten path. This rustic cottage was just the right place to retreat! My husband and son found giant marine toads in the pond and we saw toucans and many other birds in the garden. You are on the dry side of the mountain here and there are NO mosquitoes! Only a few miles away from the continental divide and the lush cloud forest - really amazing to have two such different climates! Giselle is the neighbor who lives near the cottage and fixes delicious authentic meals. Dunia and Veronica were very helpful with booking the cottage and they run the sustainability center. Funds from staying here help there efforts. While you are in the area, look up Pasion Costa Rica on Trip Advisor. They provide Nature Tours and Hikes in the area - Marcos and Susu were amazing!

“the back garden is a nature reserve by itself”
Reviewed 16 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

It is located about 15 minutes from all the main attractions in the area like natural reserves and canopying. The biggest plus about this place is the immense back garden, which is a natural reserve by itself (the only place I've seen toucans in Costa Rica). The house itself reasonably equipped and the canvas walls give it an indigenous feeling. The owner is friendly and active in environmental sustainability: we later found out that the profit of the guest house goes to local river preservation. Her organisational talents might need some brushing up: it was unclear where and how we had to pay, which turned out was at a preservation centre at a 40 minutes drive, luckily on the route to where we were going next.

“Absolutely Amazing”

Our stay was better than we could have imagined. The cottage is roomy and comfortable with everything you need – we were able to cook meals, but the town is also close enough to get supplies and go out for dinner too. The owners provided the most amazing coffee beans so you could make a perfect cup before heading out for the day. The cottage has unbelievable views and we could even see the bay right from the front window. We did a lot of bird and wildlife watching right on the property, and saw birds, a sloth and even a fox. The porch even has a porch swing with a view!! The location is great for heading to the cloud forest for hiking and bird-watching and the owners had great recommendations for guides and activities. We had a rental 4x4 so it was very easy to get around to see the sights. The owners also have a Sustainability Center down the valley and it was a great stop both coming and going. The Sustainability Center is in a beautiful area and the owners were so welcoming and knowledgeable. They run a small market on Saturdays and it was one of the highlights of our trip – fresh local food, vegetables and fruit. The cottage and owners were wonderful and we cannot wait to return.

“Wonderful Hide-Away”
Reviewed 10 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Casa Inspiracion is a roomy Costa Rican style home-away-from-home tucked in the mountain side with beautiful walking trails throughout the property. The house is well supplied with dishes, kitchen utensils and organic local coffee. It is comfortably furnished, including nice beds. My favorite were the large screened windows in the bedrooms that were shuttered with rustic-looking wood.

The place is very private and secure. It was the perfect mix of a Costa Rica style house with North American amenities in it, including a large soaker tub. We saw several tropical birds on the property, and if you walk the trail to the pond at night you can see several large toads playing in the water as well as witness leaf-cutter ant highways travelling across the trails.

Upon arrival we were greeted with a tasty local snack. We made arrangements for the same cook to deliver a supper to the house one night, she is an amazing cook and I'm afraid to say we way over-ate because it tasted so good!

The house is located just a few minutes drive from Santa Elena where you can access all kinds of tours and sight seeing, as well as several restaurants. Or, you can just hang out at the house listening to the cool breezes and the birds. We did a couple days and each!
