A sweet oasis on a working farm in the heart of the real Costa Rica!
This was my second stay at Casa Roja and I wasn’t disappointed! I love this sweet little house. A washer and dryer is a godsend because all of the recreational activities in Costa Rica include getting a little messy. The pool is a fabulous perk and we we swam twice a day at the very least. The view from the pool is absolutely phenomenal as well! You are likely to see monkeys cruising by at some point while you lay in the hammock on the terrace. Sunsets on the lake I fix side of Costa Rica are gorgeous and I highly recommend watching from the roof with a glass of rum and your camera. I hope to go back as soon as possible and would recommend spending a little time at the Finca Estrella to anyone and everyone! Pura Vida!
Perfect tropical retreat
We found Casa Roja at Finca Estrella the perfect tropical retreat, set in the jungle with lovely views of the Gulf and Pacific and Zancudo Beach. The house was well-appointed and comfortable and had all we needed for our relaxing stay. Being off the beaten track and surrounded by jungle, Casa Roja's balcony and rooftop terrace let us watch amazing birds – toucan, scarlet macaw, parrots, woodpeckers and many more – over our morning coffee. The surrounding trails offer incredible opportunities to see monkeys, a huge variety of birds, interesting, unusual insects, and beautiful tropical plants. The lovely tiled pool, with its terrific view of the valley toward the Gulf, provided a welcome afternoon respite from the heat. We picked bananas every day from the bunch Freddy our helpful Tico neighbour hung nearby. The local guide who organized our horse-back riding and waterfall hikes was welcoming and knowledgeable and with much better English than our Spanish. Maybe the best part was getting to know our neighbours, including the vibrant extended Tico family who all lived nearby. We loved our time there and are already looking forward to going back next year. Theresa and Barry, Ottawa, February 2017.
Dear Theresa and Barry, thanks for the lovely review. It was great to meet you guys and very pleased you'll be back next year.
Barry, I hope you're finding lots of interesting insects back at home!
A peaceful and scenic nature lovers paradise
close to nature overlooking rolling hills to the sea surrounded by the flora and fauna that is the essence of Costa Rica
Beautiful position and lovely swimming pool
Saw our first sloth here. Definitely made our stay .. You can swim in the pool and look over the Pacific beautiful . The only downside is the road up to casa roja . Definitely a 4 wheel drive needed and even then a bit rough .
Glad you enjoyed your stay guys! We've been promised repairs to the road very soon!
Wonderful rustic experience!
When we planned our trip to CR my first question to my girlfriend was "where do most of the tourists go"? She showed me on a map and I pointed to the other end of the country and said that is where I wanted to go. We searched and finally settled on Casa Roja and we weren't disappointed. The beauty of the area was breathtaking. Sitting on the balcony in the morning and watching the jungle wake up was so very relaxing. Since I work with wildlife the number of birds, butterflies and mammals in the area was nothing less than spectacular. We explored the entire property and found fresh mandarin limes and banana's which were relished everyday.Our excursions along the beach from Zancudo down to Punta Banco were awesome and the food in the area was delicious.
I would be remiss if I didn't mention what an awesome host Freddy is. He was incredibly kind,helpful and a pretty funny guy. He is the epitome of what life is all about in the Pavones area. We even had the company of some of the sweetest dogs.
Part of me wants to scare everyone away from this area because I want it all to myself! ;-)
Many thanks for the nice, review Mike. We're really pleased you had such a great time. I'll pass on your kind words to Freddy - we're very lucky to have him.
Favorite Spot in Costa Rica
This was our third trip to Casa Amarilla and I always leave hoping there will be many more to come. This time we only stayed for a week. In the past we'd stayed for a month. I wish we could stay for a year! We absolutely love it here. Pavones is an amazing area that is still sort of a best kept secret. On the drive from SJO to Finca Estrella you pass through the bustling touristy towns of Jaco, Hermosa, and Manuel Antonio where you sometimes see more American's than Ticos. As you drive further south everything becomes a little calmer. The beaches are beautiful. We love Pilon because we are almost always the only people there and it is a short drive down the hill. My husband even made the journey by foot two years ago. I definitely recommend a 4WD vehicle for getting around. Each year that we've stayed we've seen monkeys, toucans, and macaws all from the deck. Nature is all around you here. You see from your bedroom windows what others pay for tour guides to see. And if you don't notice it on your own Freddy is always there to help point things out. I could go on and on about the incredible kindness of the people who work on Finca Estrella for pages and pages. Freddy is the most easy going and helpful person. My children talk about Grace all the time. We were happy to go on an excursion to a waterfall with her husband Enrique who is a phenomenal tour guide. The minute we get home from this place I start looking for flights back.
A baía de Pavones é um dos poucos cantos verdadeiramente intocada do paraíso deixou na Costa Rica, onde o almoço macacos em extinção em árvores de fruto no lado da estrada, araras chiar sobrecarga e borboletas azuis deslumbrantes gigantes bater por.
As praias são selvagens e deslumbrantes e as águas quentes são fantásticas para o surf e bodyboard. Ou, se você gosta de algo diferente, siga golfinhos assistindo prateado peixes pulando nas ondas enquanto você stand-up paddleboard na água perfeita em Pilon. Se você preferir ficar na areia, em seguida, há uma infinidade de belas sementes de encontrar, kitesurfers para admirar, aves marinhas pela dúzia. Pegar peixes para a grade no caminho de casa dos pescadores, o mais provável seus únicos companheiros no trecho interminável de areia perfeito. Os pescadores locais serão felizes obrigar, se você quiser se juntar a eles em seus barcos para pegar algumas cavala, robalo, robalo (robalo), dorado (mahi-mahi) ou cioba. Para os mais aventureiros, pesca esportiva pode ser arranjado com Zancudo Lodge ou as marinas de Golfito. Passeios de barco também pode ser arranjado para visitas à Península de Osa, os jardins de orquídeas, Wild Animal Refuge, Zipline Canopy Tours e caiaque no Rio Coto (River) - baleias, golfinhos e tartarugas são frequentemente avistados dos barcos. Você pode nunca esqui aquático!
Trek com Freddy e Enrique torno da extensa finca ou para as cachoeiras locais, caminhar ou pegar os cavalos, e almoço na sombra fresca em troncos cobertos de musgo antes de tomar um mergulho ou até mesmo subir pelas rochas para ficar sob a torrente refrescante. O 'pozo "- natação buraco - no Rio Cuervito é uma obrigação em um dia quente. Ir para fora rochas ou troncos caídos e relaxar num ambiente perfeito ouvir a sua selva "música".
Em dias de "descanso", as redes à beira da bela piscina de 18m estará esperando por você. Balanço serenamente ouvindo os tucanos, o zumbido de colibris 'asas, os papagaios' conversas e Freddy ou Enrique gentilmente cutucá-los quando o macacos / preguiças / qualquer outra coisa que você gostaria de ver é em torno.
Os bicos de água de baleias que passam foram vistos a partir da quinta - o golfo está repleto de vida marinha por isso sempre manter um vigia quando você está dirigindo ao longo da estrada da praia em direção a Pavones.
Há "sodas" locais para comer fora e 'pulperias' para mantimentos. O surfista cidade vizinha descontraída de Pavones tem uma loja de surf, restaurantes e um supermercado além do estúdio de ioga à beira-mar mais incrível!
