Great birds!! Great for two people!!
We loved the Blue Butterfly Cottage. Every morning at dawn I looked forward to seeing Keel-billed Toucans, Red-lores Parrots and many more exotic birds right from our front porch!! If sleeping more than two, Bret needs to get new sofa sleeper. Impossible mattress on current one!!
A gorgeous garden on the edge of the jungle,
We stayed in this little casita for 5 days and really enjoyed it.
It is a beautiful, very comfortable cabin set in a well maintained, huge, gorgeous garden with a variety of flowers and birds. Sit on the patio and watch the fire flies at night or have your coffee in the morning and watch the beautiful birds!
We were lucky to see the monkeys in the trees as well.
There is a swimming pound on the property where you can relax and enjoy nature.
The casita is conveniently close to town for your shopping with the feel of being away in the jungle.
The road to it is a little bumpy but, for us, this added to the charm for the feel of staying in a jungle setting. I did not want to stay in Costa Rica on the main roads.
This was our first time in Costa Rica and Bret was very helpful with advises and tips. The property manager lived right down the road and there is a phone in the cabin. We were able to call him with any questions we had.
If we go back on that side of Costa Rica, we will certainly stay there again. There is also a bigger house on the property if we ever go back with family.
Thank you for your review and we are glad you had a good time. We too enjoy the quiet solitude of nature and the property with all the wildlife, flora and fauna. Our main house has 5 bedrooms and 2 baths with plenty of room for a group or family of 8-10. It was great to hear you had a chance to see the monkeys.. they are very curious but shy. We also share your sentiments about our road to the property. Although bumpy, it has always been part of the adventure of Costa Rica for us.
Very nice owner went out of his way for us.
This property is a studio apartment attached to the side of a garage. Quite private but close to owner if he is needed. Only two issues: double bed is built into the walls of an open loft so that three sides are against the walls which means the person sleeping nearest the wall has to climb over the other person if they need to get up while the other person sleeps; and the nearly 2 mile rutted and rocky road to get to the large and pretty property are bone jarring and suspension jolting. We did enjoy being there but hated having to go into town because of the road. Understand that the municipality may be improving the road before long.
Quiet, peaceful with amazing bird viewing.
If you want a clean,cosy,quiet place to come and just chill or watch hummingbird,birds, butterflys, fireflys as well as monkeys this is the place to come. Did my exercises on front deck every morning and it was a pleasure with all the wildlife around. Brett has a huge acreage with roads and paths to hike around as well as two ponds, one of which you can swim in.
Thank you for your review. Just this past Monday and Tuesday morning we enjoyed watching a family of white faced monkeys frolicking about in the trees just outside the Cottage. Also saw some large footprints of Tapir but they are shy and hard to spot... we have them come through every day but rarely see them. Anyway, we were glad to have you and that you enjoyed your time.
Cozy cabin on beautiful property
We really enjoyed our time at the Blue Butterfly Cottage. Henry was so friendly and helpful-our arrival was smooth and our time was really enjoyable. The weather was not great but we got out and explored the property-there are so many birds and its a great location to go to the thermal pools and hanging bridges, both of which were awesome. I highly recommend!
Thank you... so glad you enjoyed the property. Sorry the weather was not the best.
Fabulous cottage, fabulous stay!
This is a very well kept little cottage right in the middle of absolutely the most amazingly beautiful part of Costa Rica even imaginable. The cottage is clean, well stocked, comfortable and well maintained. The gardeners and caretaker are second to none. It was a very enjoyable and much needed respite from the rat race. Would recommend to anyone wanting to get away from it all. The wildlife sightings right on the property really enhanced our experience.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you for the kind words. We agree, the Arenal area is absolutely beautiful and has the best that Costa Rica can offer.
