Our traveling group, which included a few children, rented out the top floor of Tarsicio's house, which included at least 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms so there was plenty of space for all. The bedrooms/bathrooms were furnished in a simple and basic manner. Hot water was not an issue when taking a shower. We stayed in the largest bedroom in the corner with a huge king sized bed with another twin bed in the corner as well. The only nuisance was that one of the windows would not close so insects could flutter in and out. Inevitably, there were some moths that made their way in and flew around in the bedroom at night, which was sometimes unnerving, when they would dart onto one's head or bed sheets. The downstairs floor consisted of shared common space, which included a small living room area, with a piano, writing table, small TV, chairs and sofa; a very large dining table; a small working kitchen and room in the back, which contained washing machine (there is no dryer but you can hang your clothes outside on drying line or there's a drying line in the main bedroom upstairs as well). Wifi was excellent.
As others have stated, one of the joys of staying at this place was the incredibly warm hospitality of Tarsicio and his sweet wife, Marianela. They cooked lovely breakfasts for us (toast, jams, fruits, eggs, coffee/teas, etc) and gave wonderful suggestions for sightseeing. Tarsicio connected us with a wonderful naturist guide for the Curi Cancha Widllife Refuge (an alternative to the Monteverde Cloudforest Reserve if you want less crowds and still see amazing wildlife), and we had fun and learned a lot on a coffee/chocolate tour and nighttime wildlife walk at Don Juan Coffee Farms (which Tarsicio booked for us). He also arranged transportation for one of our friends to get back to San Jose a day early. The house was a little tricky to find at first, but is is actually right off a main street that has multiple terrific restaurants just walking distance, such as Tramonti, Cafe Caburi and Stella's Bakery. There was also a co-op artisan gallery walking distance by the eateries, along with the Bat Jungle (kids loved it). The evening we left, we received a note from Tarsicio that we had left two items behind, and he quickly made arrangements to mail them back to us in San Jose, where we had someone who could pick them up for us. All in all, if you don't mind some simple and rustic surroundings, you will enjoy the natural beauty, peace and hospitality of what this couple's home has to offer!
