Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve, Monteverde, Province of Puntarenas
Melvin and Saray welcome you to Monteverde!
Melvin's House grew out of our family's desire to share our home life with visitors from around the world. Melvin is a naturalist who is native to Monteverde, and who has raised his family here.
Melvin was born and raised in a large Costa Rican pioneer family who came to the San Luis Valley to make a new life outside of the capital city.
At Melvin's House, surrounded by rolling pastures, clear mountain streams, and the cloud forest alive with sounds and color, you will experience a warm, family environment.
We welcome you to explore with wonder and excitement the rich cloud forest environment surrounding our home. We hope to transmit our love of nature to you during your stay and that this brings you to a better knowledge of yourself and of your connection to the natural world.

Melvin’s House was the most comfortable leg of our trip. We loved the privacy of having a space just for our family. There were 4 of us but there’s space for 7. The house is surrounded by the forest and were we able to spot and observe wildlife from every room of the house! We had the pleasure of seeing Agouti, Coati, Motmot’s, and a beautiful black Guan. Melvin was both a welcoming and knowledgeable host. In addition he’s also an experienced tour guide. We enjoyed breakfast at Stella’s Bakery, a private tour of the Curi-Concha Reserve, and fresh cheese and ice cream at the Monteverde Cheese Factory. We highly recommend Melvin’s House for your stay in Monteverde. The only issue we had is that while the master bed was comfortable, the beds in the other rooms were too firm.
