We were a group of 4 adults and 5 teenagers on a vacation in Costa Rica who had the good fortune of booking Casa Guarumo in Monteverde. It is located less than 5 minutes walking to the women's artist co-operative and restaurants plus coffee shop, dairy serving incredible ice cream and an excellent grocery store; about 10 min taxi to town and about 15 min to the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve (in other words - perfectly located!)
The house is exceptional! The main area includes a lovely balcony to watch the birds (and monkeys!), a kitchen, dining and living room and an open bedroom. The bathroom here is awesome too. There are two bedrooms (each with en suite bathrooms) just outside the main area. Below there is a bar, eating area and dance floor with a couple sofa beds. A separate building offers a third bedroom with en suite bathroom and kitchenette. There is also the incredible amphitheatre which is huge and impressive.
Sergio (the owner) is extremely easy to deal with and he is very helpful. Rapheal, the property manager met us on arrival and gave us a very helpful overview of the area plus dealt with reservations for the various night hikes, zip-line tours and taxis for our group. The kids all loved learning from him about the various animals that with his help (and bananas) we got to enjoy.
We recommend this house to anyone who wants to stay in an excellent location to enjoy Costa Rica.
The house and staff were amazing. 15 of us stayed here. There was a lot of room. It was so much fun to watch the monkeys, coatis and agoutis. Can’t wait to go back. Thank you so much Sergio.
