Monteverde House Rental Photos and Description

Recently Built 2 Bedroom With Mountain View House.

Our house has recently been built, its a two bedroom with queen size bed, double bed and there is an inflatable queen size mattress if needed. There is a bathroom with hot tub, living room, dinning room, kitchen and laundry room. All rooms are equiped and ready to use.

You can have access to satellite tv and internet use in the house. All windows on the back side of the house have a mountain view, so since you wake up and until night, you can take a look out the window or go out on the porch to enjoy the beautiful nature view.

The house name comes from a special characteristic that the main bedroom has, there is a star shape on the ceiling of the bedroom. The other different thing the house has, is a dimond shape on the living room ceiling with special lighting wich allows us to create different environments.

The house has wooden floors and big windows that will always keep you in touch with the outside.

Driving a little bit up hill from the main road you will reach your private destination. The house has forest all around and you will enjoy taking a short walk in the mornings around the property to go bird watching and sometimes see wild animals passing by. If you want to have a closer look at a 'tico' family and farm, you can come and visit our small milking farm and learn how to milk by hand. You can feed the chikens and see local art making by one of our mothers and have a costarican lunch, or why not help prepare it as well!

To go to town its about a 10 minute drive (3km) were you can find restaurants, shops, spas and other interesting things.

So dont miss the opportunity to come and enjoy Monteverde and stay in a place that can be like home.

About Zabrina Rockwell

We have two different backrounds, Adalberto grew up in the community of Cañitas and Zabrina grew up in the quaker cummunity in Monteverde center. He works in a state bank (Banco de Costa Rica) and is finishing his studies in administration. She works as a nanny and is studying public health administration. We both like dancing, short trips, movie watching and cultural exchanges.

Zabrina Rockwell purchased this house in 2012

Why Zabrina Rockwell chose Puntarenas

The property where the house is located is owned by Adalberto`s father, who gave him land to build the house. So it means a lot to him, it is where he grew up and is still family connected.

What makes this house unique

It`s land passed on by generatios and it has a nice mountain view. After lunch and all through the afternoon the sun shines right in the house and at night you can enjoy the clear sky full of stars and it`s even better when it`s full moon.

Perfect Hidden Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four and stayed at the Star House in March 2016. Upon reaching town we were met promptly by a friend of Zabrina and Adalberto. He guided us up to the house and we're glad we had 4WD as it was on a steep hill with a tight turn. But once there it was great. For anyone with difficulty walking getting from the car to the house may be challenging since it is unpaved, so just be aware. The house was perfect for our needs. Since we have two teens, one took the twin bed and they brought an airbed for the other. Although tight, the airbed fit in the kitchen/dining area, and is fine for a teenager. The master bedroom is cute with its little daybed section (though not really suitable for sleeping as it is perched high) and the bed was comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped and had everything necessary for a short stay. The deck is great to sit in and enjoy the Views and breeze. Beware of the sliding glass door, especially for younger kids. As of March 2016, the 2nd deck hadn't been built yet and it was a steep way down. Overall, we would definitely stay again in the area and return to the Star House.

Start House: very nice place!!

  • 5 of 5

Star House met all our expectations...It is fully equipped (all amenities).

The order, privacy, security, interior design, the warmth of the wood, everything! makes you feel like in your own home.

The owners give you the keys personally and make you many recommendations on things to do and enjoy the stay.

At night you sleep with the sound of the trees moving in the wind and in the morning wake up to the sound of birds...Start House is on a hill, so the sunsets are incredible from the main deck... wine and book please ;)

In Montezuma (at 5 minutes) you find many options for adventure activities and places to eat / dining, pharmacies, banks, cafes, etc... If you don't want anything like that, just to go to the back of the Start House and make your own walks in the forest that has the property.

Zabrina and Alberto thanks for attention!

I highly recommend this House and Montezuma for those who want a balance between activities with nature and peace!!

Loved the Star House

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Star House. We stayed four nights and it wasn't even enough. I could have spent a whole morning just watching the birds from the porch. But there was so much to explore in the area. Zabrina helped arrange tours for us and made excellent restaurant recommendations. She was very helpful with anything that came up and responded quickly to any questions.

Setting was beautiful and the house was clean and well equipped.

Highly recommend! Bring your binoculars!

A beautiful place in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Star House for 3 nights in March of 2016 and really enjoyed our time there. The house is comfortable, clean and well stocked. We had everything we needed. There is a beautiful view from the deck, living room and master bedroom. The location is great - situated between Santa Elena and Monteverde we were only minutes away from the Santa Elena reserve and the coffee farm we visited. We were met very promptly when we arrived and taken to the house. There is a phone which made it easy if we needed to contact the owner. We also used it for local calls to book our trips. We would stay there again and highly recommend it to others.

Sky House Treated Us Well

  • 4 of 5

What a treat to be literally "above it all" in Monteverde. Short rocky ride up the hill was no problem. Spent lots of time on the porch enjoying the view.

Beautiful house with incredible scenery

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved my stay here. This house is offset from the other houses in the area and it has a spectacular overlook down the mountain. The setting is peaceful and I loved it because it was away from the really touristy area. However, tourist attractions and the town of Santa Elena were very close by. The house is surrounded by beautiful farm land and the people I encountered were very friendly. The property was super clean and well-maintained. The owners were super nice as well. I spent a lot of time on the back deck where I could watch beautiful sunsets. I would recommend taking a tour at Finca Life Monteverde which is a sustainable coffee farm right down the road. I stayed here for a month and really got to know the area and this is by far one of the best properties I saw. I HIGHLY recommend staying here.
