A short but sweet stay...

  • 5 of 5
We only stayed for one night, as we were headed back to San Jose to leave the next day, but the house was just as advertised and reviewed by many (lucky) others who stayed there - a nice place to stay!
Jose was particularly welcoming - meeting us after dark to ensure that we could get to the house (it's well tucked away!!), and then turning up for breakfast the next day, cooked by his Mum. He was able to tell us lots about the area & the country and he certainly made a nice addition to our breakfast gathering. Next time we come, we'll stay longer & do some adventurous stuff!

Perfect in Every Way!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, our three small children and I have been fortunate to stay at Paraiso Natural for the past two summers. Our stays have been the highlight of our whole year due to the amazing hospitality of the owners and the long lasting friendships we have made there, the lovely house and beautiful and tranquil surroundings.
This house is located just far enough away from things to feel completely peaceful and away from it all yet close enough to everything to not feel isolated or abandoned. The town of Turrialba (20 minutes away) has city shopping and everything you would need while the village of Sitio Mata is quiet, removed from the hustle, and filled with the friendliest people. The Natural Paradise farm and house is obviously the work of many loving hands and it certainly shows in so many areas. If you are looking for a way to experience Costa Rican culture and life first hand, this is the place to come.
Jose Miguel, Sergio, and the whole Calvo Rivera family are most amazing of hosts. Aileen (the matriarch) cooks the most delicious food, almost all of it harvested exclusively from their farm about 300 meters away from the house! Jose Miguel and Sergio can do everything from pick you up at the airport to set you up on an amazing rafting trip to personally taking you canyoning, ziplining, horseback riding, or to visit archeological ruins or the local botanical gardens. The family truly cares for the guests who visit and they can assist with any detail.
The house itself is spacious and has a great, flat yard where our children play happily and safely with the owners’ grandchildren who are now special friends. The kitchen is well equipped, and the house is always sparkling clean upon arrival. The inviting outdoor spaces (deck, patio, front porch) all offer opportunities for relaxation and bird watching, while the interior has the amenities you are accustomed to: washing machine, microwave, refrigerator/freezer, hot water showers, wireless internet, etc.
There are many places you can stay in Costa Rica, and most of them are lovely. However, you would be hard pressed to find any place with such an amazing combination of the varied and great, non-touristy sightseeing opportunities as well as the warm and authentic family as you will at Natural Paradise.

Lovely views, great hospitality,A great spot to relax

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from Costa Rica where we met up with my husbands family from Argentina. Turrialba was the last stop on our trip and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the house. Jose Miguel was waiting for us upon our arrival and we felt most welcomed by him and his family. The house was immaculately clean and well appointed. Views from the balcony and all the delightful birds coming to the feeder were spectacular.Jose Miguel's mothers cooking was delightful and tasty, we enjoyed several meals that she prepared.Jose Miguel arranged and also took us on several tours including a trip white water rafting and a trip to the volcano, all excellent. This area of Costa Rica is truly beautiful and well worth a visit and we would highly recommend staying at this home especially if you would like to experience life with a Costa Rican family. Thanks to all for a great end to our vacation. Jacqui

Beautiful Home and a Wonderful Family

  • 5 of 5
We have been to Costa Rica before and stayed up in the mountains near Arenal and also spent a week on the Pacific coast. This time around, we wanted to check out the central and Caribbean side to see what it had to offer. We decided on Turrialba as our central hub for our stay due to its proximity to several volcanoes, historical sites and the coast.After checking out a lot of rentals, so many people had such great things to say about Jose and the Rivera family we decided to stay here. We are so happy that we did!

The home sits on a beautiful farm, and is truly a bird watchers paradise. We spent hours just watching and photographing the hummingbirds zip around our heads looking for nectar. Jose is well versed on the birds in the area and even taught us to identify some birds just based on their calls. We enjoyed evenings having dinner with Jose and his wife, and learning more about their family and the area. We booked several trips with Jose, including hiking the nearby volcanoes, a visit to an archaeological site, and canyoneering with Jose and his brother Sergio. They are both incredibly knowledgeable about the area and gave us a wealth of information.

The house itself while basic, has everything you need, kitchen utensils, coffee maker, microwave, a washing machine (with a clothesline outside), and plenty of towels and linens. Although there is no a/c there are fans which was enough to keep us cool. You also get to play with the family's dogs who come down during the day for fetch, making us a little less homesick for our puppies at home!

We had such a wonderful time with Jose and his family and tell everyone we know who is interested in visiting Costa Rica about Jose, his family and Natural Paradise.
I have some pictures posted here of our stay at the finca- http://followingthedog.blogspot.com/2013/08/turrialba-costa-rica-rental.html

Great family adventure

  • 4 of 5
My family of four and my parents were interested in visiting Costa RIca. We wanted to see more than just the tourist sites, we wanted to experience the lifestyle. The property was recommended to me by a co-worker and I researched it further online. It was an amazing adventure!

I must admit I was skeptical about not having a/c, but you really don't need it! The property was clean and comfortable. The location and view were beautiful. A nice place to relax and get away from the daily grind, but not too remote to not have internet. Sitting on the porch drinking coffee and watching the birds was just heavenly.

Jose and his family were very kind and welcoming. The meals they prepared for us were excellent as well. We spent a lot of time with his brother Sergio, as he was our guide for trips into town and horseback riding. My boys really bonded with Sergio and he made sure they were having a great time.

We booked a rafting trip through Jose and it was AMAZING! A must-do if you enjoy being outside and like a little adventure. Jose planned everything for us. All of our trips were hassle-free and most enjoyable. It was really nice not having to stress over these little details.

I would highly recommend this property to anybody. You really can't beat the price for everything you get. I look forward to visiting again. Best family vacation so far!

A great family trip

  • 4 of 5
Our family trip was amazing! As our first trip to Costa Rica, we wanted to see more than just the tourist locations, we wanted to experience the culture. Staying here was perfect. We were really able to relax and enjoy being together as a family.
Jose and his brother Sergio were excellent hosts. Planning all the trips we asked about so there was nothing for me to worry over. And the trips were awesome. I highly recommend the rafting and horseback riding. You will not be disappointed!
The house was clean and comfortable. The porch offered some of the most incredible views. My husband would get up early just to sit outside alone and watch the birds before the rest of us got up for the day.
The family prepared several meals for us and that was a real treat. I love being able to experience the local cuisine when I travel and this food was fantastic. They are such kind and generous people you will feel like family by the time you leave.

Best family trip so far! We will be back!
