About Property Manager/Owner
I love life, I love meeting new people and I love Monteverde.
Why Property Manager/Owner chose Monteverde
Because it's located in one of the nicest places of this wonderful community. Close to the Monteverde Reserve in the heart of where nature conservation started here in Costa Rica. It allows us to be part of a great project having to do with sustainable tourism, but at the same time being part of a very nice and local community. Everyone who is part of this project is an active community member.

Positives and negatives
The house was adequate for us but did have some issues. The floors were recently highly waxed which made them very slippery. We wiped as much of the excess wax off the floor with towels but it was still very slippery. Also, neither of the 2 stoves worked in the kitchen. All the water faucets leaked. The layout of the house is very strange and the photos are misleading of the number and placement of rooms. The large room with 4 beds can’t be accessed from the main house. The entrance is outside. The bed in the upstairs above the kitchen was very hard and uncomfortable. The attic room is accessible via an attic ladder that blocks the door to the bathroom when down. There are some great things about the property. The location is great if you’re wanting to spend a lot of time in the cloud forest. There was a little garden with a small water feature that tadpoles, froglets and frogs were living. It was a highlight to our stay! Also, we had the opportunity to watch 2 kinkajou in the tree tops our last night. In summary, the house served its purpose, but I wouldn’t stay there again most likely.
Beautifully decorated and unique house with an amazing outdoor space and view. Very easy to find and get inside. The hostess was always accessible via email and checked on us to make sure that we were happy.
The rooms set up is suitable for a family or group who don't require privacy. There is one room with a queen bed and one room with sleeping for 5, accessed from outside the house. The upstairs and loft room are all open to each other. It was perfect for our family of 10. The loft stairs are for adventurous types. If you would climb a bunk bed, you would be fine in the loft. Likely one of the best houses in Monteverde despite some quirks.
Beautiful, spacious, quiet close to Monteverde
Casa Valentina was perfect for our stay in Monteverde. We rented the entire house and didn’t even need the extra butterfly unit. There was plenty of room for our children and my in-laws. The fourth bedroom is a loft and not exactly private but my daughter LOVED it. The property is quiet and we spent afternoons after hiking watching toucans, coatis, agoutis, and various other birds right from the picnic table outside ( not to mention all of the beautiful hummingbirds!). The home does NOT have televisions, but that wasn’t really a negative! It forced my family to spend quality time together and really get out and enjoy nature! We would absolutely stay again, and look forward to it. The host responds quickly and the home is left clean!
Good place to stay
Good place and very spacious, but note that the 4th bedroom isn't private at all and has very steep, drop down stairs that are difficult to climb. Other pictures are a little misleading. The fireplace is now gas and offered no heat for the house and the balcony is narrow and only comes with 2 chairs to sit outside. Other than that we enjoyed the location and view. It's located in a very quiet neighborhood with friendly neighbors. The proximity to town and activities was great. One day we even had monkeys in the trees right outside the house. My family enjoyed the time there.
Hi Cindy, thank you for your comments! I'm glad you got to see monkeys and we will work on fixing the small issues you mentioned. Thank you for staying with us!
