Casa Arco Iris offers a quiet country retreat for those discerning guests who prefer independence and privacy for their vacation. This charming, European-style, tastefully constructed 3 bedroom house is located on a small organic farm in a rural area just 2 miles from the town of Santa Elena, Monteverde.
The accommodation comprises 3 bedrooms that sleep up to 8 people, 2 bathrooms, a large fully fitted kitchen complete with utensils and a spacious living area. For your comfort you find satellite TV, a DVD player, washer and dryer, telephone, Wi-Fi, and a safe.
A large veranda offers stunning views of the Gulf of Nicoya and outside dining space.
The grounds extend for some 5 acres (2.6 hectares) and encompass: a covered car parking, organic greenhouses, a coffee plantation, chicken and turkey houses, stables with 2 horses and a friendly farm dog.
The immediate gardens are well kept and present a wide selection of tropical flora and fauna, including many orchids. Over the years the wider area has been steadily reforested and as a result is home to many species of wildlife, making it a perfect location for birding.
Casa Arco Iris is run by the same owners as Arco Iris Lodge, a small but beautifully presented owner-operated ecolodge close to the centre of Santa Elena.
A delightful combination of forest and pastures provides the perfect setting for walks, excellent birdwatching, viewing the farm animals and the greenhouses where we grow organic vegetables.
An excellent base from which to explore the wonders of the cloudforest. As the owner´s former private residency, Casa Arco Iris offers independenc and comfort in a well cared for and safe environment.
Casa Arco Iris is just a short drive away from a wide variety of tours and places of interest, including: guided hikes of the Monteverde and Santa Elena Cloud Forest reserves, canopy tours, suspended bridges, horse riding, natural history exhibitions, coffee plantations tours, sugar cane farm tour, butterfly and orchid gardens.
The Arco Iris Lodge reception staff are extremely knowledgeable about excursions and adventures in this region and will be happy to help with any bookings.
