Casa Inspiracion is surrounded by lush vegetation and fruit trees, and the birds and wildlife that live on them. Yet you are on a mountainside, so you get to see hummingbirds feeding right outside your window, AND the majestic views of the mountains and the Nicoya Gulf right from your kitchen window. It is Casa Cielo's sister and it is situated on the same 5-acre preserve but a little lower down the mountain slope.
It is truly a Bird-Watcher´s Paradise. The birds and wildlife come to freely enjoy the tangerines, oranges, water apples, grapefruits, bananas, avocado, rose apples, lemons and mangoes, and drink from the pond. Our guests enjoy the organic tea and coffee. Children like to feed our free-range chickens and play with our friendly dogs, - ONLY 15 minutes to Monteverde, 7 mins to the nearest town of Santa Elena.
Situated right off the main road to San Jose, but nestled in the mountains, it is a 5 minute drive to grocery stores, banks, restaurants, etc.
Enjoy the Cloud Forest attractions during the day, but at night, retreat to the low-land drier and warmer climate and its diverse wildlife.
Wake up to the sound of parrots flying overhead and chickens coming to your back porch, then warm up with a cup of herbal tea straight from our garden or organic coffee from the San Luis Valley.
Later on, take a walk on the trails and see beauty and biodiversity all around... you could even feed the chickens and fish.
In the evening, watch the amazing sunset from the back porch swing and curl up in a tub for two.
Less than 2 hours to the beach, 3.5 hours to Volcan Arenal, 30 mins to Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve and zip-lines, 20 mins to Children´s Eternal Rain Forest, 7 minutes to ranarium, herpetarium, horse-back rides, orchid and butterfly gardens.
It has a double bathtub and a full bed (sleeps 2) in the master bedroom, another full bed and a twin (in the style of bunk beds, sleeps 3) in a second bedroom and a full futon in the living room (sleeps 2).

It is a totally rustic and cozy home. Through the large picture windows, you can watch the ever-changing color display of the magnificent sunsets right from your kitchen, bathtub or your hand-crafted swing on your back porch.
