Nice, relaxing, easy
We had a really great time at the location! Freddy and Enrique were wonderful and very helpful. Waking up and going to the top balcony was a really great way to start our day... It is very close to a lot of great beaches and the host has directions and information about all of them!
A sweet oasis on a working farm in the heart of the real Costa Rica!
This was my second stay at Casa Roja and I wasn’t disappointed! I love this sweet little house. A washer and dryer is a godsend because all of the recreational activities in Costa Rica include getting a little messy. The pool is a fabulous perk and we we swam twice a day at the very least. The view from the pool is absolutely phenomenal as well! You are likely to see monkeys cruising by at some point while you lay in the hammock on the terrace. Sunsets on the lake I fix side of Costa Rica are gorgeous and I highly recommend watching from the roof with a glass of rum and your camera. I hope to go back as soon as possible and would recommend spending a little time at the Finca Estrella to anyone and everyone! Pura Vida!
Perfect tropical retreat
We found Casa Roja at Finca Estrella the perfect tropical retreat, set in the jungle with lovely views of the Gulf and Pacific and Zancudo Beach. The house was well-appointed and comfortable and had all we needed for our relaxing stay. Being off the beaten track and surrounded by jungle, Casa Roja's balcony and rooftop terrace let us watch amazing birds – toucan, scarlet macaw, parrots, woodpeckers and many more – over our morning coffee. The surrounding trails offer incredible opportunities to see monkeys, a huge variety of birds, interesting, unusual insects, and beautiful tropical plants. The lovely tiled pool, with its terrific view of the valley toward the Gulf, provided a welcome afternoon respite from the heat. We picked bananas every day from the bunch Freddy our helpful Tico neighbour hung nearby. The local guide who organized our horse-back riding and waterfall hikes was welcoming and knowledgeable and with much better English than our Spanish. Maybe the best part was getting to know our neighbours, including the vibrant extended Tico family who all lived nearby. We loved our time there and are already looking forward to going back next year. Theresa and Barry, Ottawa, February 2017.
Dear Theresa and Barry, thanks for the lovely review. It was great to meet you guys and very pleased you'll be back next year.
Barry, I hope you're finding lots of interesting insects back at home!
A peaceful and scenic nature lovers paradise
close to nature overlooking rolling hills to the sea surrounded by the flora and fauna that is the essence of Costa Rica
Beautiful position and lovely swimming pool
Saw our first sloth here. Definitely made our stay .. You can swim in the pool and look over the Pacific beautiful . The only downside is the road up to casa roja . Definitely a 4 wheel drive needed and even then a bit rough .
Glad you enjoyed your stay guys! We've been promised repairs to the road very soon!
Wonderful rustic experience!
When we planned our trip to CR my first question to my girlfriend was "where do most of the tourists go"? She showed me on a map and I pointed to the other end of the country and said that is where I wanted to go. We searched and finally settled on Casa Roja and we weren't disappointed. The beauty of the area was breathtaking. Sitting on the balcony in the morning and watching the jungle wake up was so very relaxing. Since I work with wildlife the number of birds, butterflies and mammals in the area was nothing less than spectacular. We explored the entire property and found fresh mandarin limes and banana's which were relished everyday.Our excursions along the beach from Zancudo down to Punta Banco were awesome and the food in the area was delicious.
I would be remiss if I didn't mention what an awesome host Freddy is. He was incredibly kind,helpful and a pretty funny guy. He is the epitome of what life is all about in the Pavones area. We even had the company of some of the sweetest dogs.
Part of me wants to scare everyone away from this area because I want it all to myself! ;-)
Many thanks for the nice, review Mike. We're really pleased you had such a great time. I'll pass on your kind words to Freddy - we're very lucky to have him.
Bugten Pavones er en af de få virkelig uspolerede hjørner af paradis tilbage i Costa Rica, hvor truede aber frokost i frugttræer ved siden af vejen, karminrøde macaws squawk overhead og gigantiske blændende blå sommerfugle flap ved.
Strandene er vilde og bedøvelse og det varme vand er fantastisk til surfing og boogie boarding. Eller hvis du har lyst noget andet, skal du følge delfiner ser sølvfarvede fisk springe i bølgerne, mens du står op paddleboard i den perfekte vand ved Pilon. Hvis du foretrækker at bo på sand, så er der et utal af smukke frø til at finde, kitesurfere at beundre, havfugle ved dusin. Pick up fisk til grillen på vej hjem fra fiskerne, sandsynligvis din eneste kammerater på den endeløse strækning af perfekt sand. Lokale fiskere vil heldigvis tvinge hvis du ønsker at slutte sig til dem i deres både for at fange nogle makrel, havaborre, Snook (Robalo), dorado (guldmakreller) eller rød snapper. For de mere eventyrlystne, Sportsfiskeri kan arrangeres med Zancudo Lodge eller lystbådehavne i Golfito. Sejlture kan også arrangeres for besøg til Osa halvøen, de Orchid Gardens, Wild Animal Refuge, Zipline Canopy Tours eller kajak i Rio Coto (River) - hvaler, delfiner og skildpadder er ofte spottet fra bådene. Du kan nogensinde waterski!
Trek med Freddy og Enrique omkring den omfattende finca eller til det lokale vandfald, gå eller tage hestene, og frokost i den kølige skygge på Mossy logs, før du tager en dukkert eller endda kravle op klipperne til at stå under den forfriskende torrent. Den "pozo" - svømning hul - på Cuervito floden er et must på en varm dag. Springe ud klipper eller faldne træstammer og slappe af i perfekte omgivelser at lytte til din jungle "musik".
På 'Rest' dage, vil hængekøjer ved den smukke 18m swimmingpool venter på dig. Swing roligt lytte til tukan, summende af kolibrier 'vinger, papegøjer' snak og Freddy eller Enrique vil blidt skubbe dig, når aber / dovendyr / noget andet, du gerne vil se, er omkring.
Vandet tude fra passerer hvaler er blevet spottet fra Finca - bugten vrimler med sealife så altid holde udkig, når du kører langs stranden vejen mod Pavones.
Der er lokale 'sodavand' for at spise ude og "pulperias« for dagligvarer. Den afslappede nærliggende surfer by Pavones har en surf butik, restauranter og et supermarked plus den mest fantastiske stranden yoga studio!
