Recently Built 2 Bedroom With Mountain View House.
It's a two bedroom house 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 chickens 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). 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 Monteverde
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.

Rainbows Every Day
We had a great time at the Star House and really enjoyed our time in the area. Abundant wild life (toucans, monkeys, agouti) right on the property, and a rainbow in the mist every morning made for a memorable visit. We enjoyed the backyard fire pit/ BBQ, and the tranquil setting.
Thank you.! Come backy soon
Cute little house in the mountains. Outstanding sunsets!!
We had such a lovely stay at the property. We drove up to Monteverde from Arenal and the drive was beautiful. It took us up through the mountain and past the huge wind turbines, which was very cool to see. We preferred to stay in Santa Elena because is was on our way in and still close enough to the adventure parks, grocery and restaurants. We arrived at the property in time to see the gorgeous sunset off the patio. Zabrina was more than accommodating with directions and suggestions for site seeing. Definitely worth going the VRBO route.
End of the rainbow
Our host was delightful and accommodating. The place had a stunning view past grazing cattle down into a lush mountain valley through which mist and clouds were blown by the wind, creating one of the most beautiful rainbows we've ever seen. The place was comfortable, set in the forest, but close to a nice village and not far from Monteverde. Would stay here again!
Lovely place in the country with great views and sunsets
We spent five days at this lovely home outside of Monteverde near the town of Santa Elena, where you can shop for food. We found the house to be very comfortable and had most everything we needed, Zabrina was very responsive to any requests we had, giving us good information about things to do in the area and quickly solving the hotwater issue when the gas ran out. We were very glad we had rented a four-wheel drive vehicle since the dirt road into Monteverde and the driveway to the house was very rough and quite steep up to the house. We had two successful birding trips, visited two reserves with skywalks both very enjoyable. We ate in several local restaurants in the shopping mall near the town, they were all good the very best was the D'Thomas. Overall we had a great time here.

She recommended a 4x4 SUV which was a smart choice.
Santa Elena is close by for shopping.
Monteverde, Curi Cancha and Valle Escondido are all close by. I would recommend the night walk at Curi Cancha.
Amazing view, beautiful house, lovely people.
The house was modern, clean and felt very safe. We loved that it was off the main road but still very close to the city. The road to get to the house was the only thing I could say comes close to this properties downside and it really wasn’t bad at all. I would recommend 4 wheel drive but we were warned of that ahead of time. Zabrina is so friendly and eager to help. We loved our stay in their home and hope, one day, to come back.
