Imagine...getting cozy in the mountain.
2 - 12岁

The best stop between San Jose and the Caribbean Coast. The newly constructed cabin is private, and set in paradise. Perfect for couples and multiple families looking to escape the tourist traps but still looking for an authentic Costa Rican cloud-forest adventure.


Set on a mountain top cloud forest with year round cool tropical climate, views and water falls. Stay in a newly constructed cabin, hike the mountain and explore 360 degrees of nature at every step. Views of Volcan Turrialba and full moons can be seen from the comfort of your bed

Temperature rarely reaches much above 85F in the day and 65F on the coldest nights so no need for AC or Heating here. We recommend guests bring jeans, socks and sweaters.

Visitors see amazing things here. Brilliantly starry nights and full moons, world class bird watching, an orchid exhibition with over 100 specimen. The pure life.

Hosts live in the main lodge, a comfortable distance from the cabin and can set up private waterfall, swimming hole, and jungle tours.


Guests have access to mountain hiking trails, swimming holes, tilapia pond, water falls, and their private yoga/dance/music/relax space.


First off, we help guests get acquainted with the home area, which covers about 5 acres.

Each day, we can set up guided tours to the guests to explore something special in the surrounding 85 acres of rain-forest. That could include trips to private swimming holes, waterfalls, and intense jungle hikes.

Our host Mariluz runs Mari's Place, a private dining experience offering traditional Costa Rican dishes and grill favorites in a private picturesque setting overlooking the river. Mari's Place is walking distance from the accommodation and is quickly becoming popular with foodies. Our guests often take advantage of having Mariluz as their private chef for their entire stay. Breakfasts are included with nightly stays.

If guests have questions, or need anything, we are here to help. But we are definitely interested in giving guests their privacy.


Looking for an off-road adventure? The roads here are rocky (and rock!). We cater to those with a love for the road. Like the saying goes, if it happens on two wheels, it's cools with us. Unless you are biking or taking your motorcycle up here, you will need a 4x4. Sorry, that economy compact car might not make it up here without making you liable on that damage-insurance policy. Heck, it might be worth it though ;)

If your party is bigger than 4, we offer two other cabins across the road that can accomodate six people in total.

We enjoyed two great nights with Mari and Barrett on our way to Cahuita and Manzanillo. The accommodations were just what we were looking for, a relaxing place to experience some wildlife while on our way to the coast. The road from the bus station surely requires 4wd, if you are lucky as we were Barrett will pick you up for less than the taxi's. Mari's food was top notch and made our stay relaxing after a long day of travel. Would recommend to anyone looking for relaxation or a place to stay on your way to Cauhita or Puerto Viejo. Thanks again!

We loved the place. It was a beautiful setting and the accommodation was perfect. Barrett and Mariluz were lovely hosts and the cooking was excellent. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting a peaceful retreat or needing a stopover between Tortugero and Quepos. Thanks

Awesome place! The road to the home is an adventure in itself! They're not lying when they say to get a 4x4. Mariluz cooking was wonderful, her fresh juices were top notch... Would recommend adding some sort of circulation into room as it does get quite stale. The swimming hole was definitely was a site to see. Also the place comes with a great tour guide, little dog showed us around the whole property. :)

La ferme de Barrett et Mariluz est un petit espace de calme et de tranquillité, au bord de la forêt, tout au bout d'une longue piste cahoteuse. Ce petit Havre de paix, déconnecté du monde, est l'occasion de prendre le temps de se reposer, admirer les nombreux oiseaux qui l'habitent et explorer les rivières, cascades et bassins qui se trouvent alentours. Barrett et Mariluz sont accueillants et discrets, ils nous ont préparé des petits repas simples issus des produits de leur ferme, servis sur la terrasse de la maison, parfait pour compléter l'immersion.

THIS PLACE IS SO COOL! Definitely stay here if you get the chance. We chose it because we wanted to avoid crowds and explore the mountains. It is so secluded and beautiful it's magical. Mariluz and Barrett are super nice; Barrett picked us up from the bus stop and (like everyone else has said) the food is the best we had on our whole trip. Seafood soup, fried fish, sopa negra, and rice pudding were some of my favorite dishes. They even accommodated our pescatarian diet. It was very rainy during our stay, so most days we lounged around reading and did little walks in the mountains. There is an amazing swimming hole nearby that we thoroughly enjoyed. There's also so much good bird watching. I would definitely recommend coming here to relax for a few days. Oh and like everyone says, the road is absolutely insane. Plan on not going down it until it's time to leave.

This place is amazing. To get there definitely requires a 4x4 and it is about 45 minutes away from the highway but it is so worth it!! I highly recommend going for the excellent food and the jungle experience. The waterfall and swimming hole nearby are incredible!!

Mariluz and Barrett's place is a very relaxing place to stay, while being an authentic experience away from all the crowds. The bed was super comfortable, and the space was unique. Since it is up quite a long 4x4 road, I would recommend bringing any snacks, drinks, or food you might need for your stay. It is great that Mariluz & Barrett serve food for a reasonable rate, and Mariluz seems incredibly passionate about her cooking! We only stayed one night but we loved the property and being able to hike to the waterfall.
