Charming Retreat by River in Biodiverse Organic Farm Community

Nestled among lush jungle, permaculture gardens, and refreshing rivers, this charming retreat offers your guests a wonderful “home away from home” experience.

Conveniently located within an organic farm community near Tinamastes, this quaint hostel is less than two kilometers from a small supermarket, three restaurants, and the Tuesday morning organic farmers market. Tinamastes is halfway between the small beach town of Dominical and the bustling city of San Isidro, both just a 30 minute drive in either direction.

The retreat home includes a dorm room with six single beds, two shared rooms with one single and one double bed in each, and a private room with a single bed. There is also a cabin just outside the main house with a double bed. Your guests will love the fresh mountain air and clean spring water on tap.

Explore several hiking trails on site, as well as a refreshing river with swimming holes and little waterfalls just a few steps from the front door. If you’re looking to venture off site, some of the biggest and most beautiful waterfalls in Costa Rica are just a short drive away. However, there is so much rich biodiversity on site (including over 250 species of birds), your group might just prefer to simply stay “home”. The house contains lots of books and fun board games, a variety of instruments available to play, and plenty of hammocks. There is also laundry service available and free wifi.

Enjoy the “pura vida” lifestyle in one of the most popular places to stay in the area. At this warm and inviting venue, you may just want to stay!

What people are saying:


"This place is magical. We enjoyed the quiet and peaceful farm life and the company of a charming community. Waking up to the sound of countless birds, taking a morning dip in the natural pool just seconds away, being surrounded by beautiful nature... It was perfect. We came for three nights and ended up staying nearly two weeks. Somer is the sweetest and she is helpful with everything you need."
-- Luisa


"There are very few places like this place. I spent three weeks there and enjoyed every moment up until my departure. Whatever you're into, this place has it or at least can point you in the right direction. Highly encouraged for any genuine person to pay a visit to the extraordinary area."
-- Nathan K.



This place is a slice of heaven on earth. It is located up in the mountains in the beautiful jungle. I woke up and saw two toucans right outside the balcony. The views are incredible, the people are very welcoming and sweet, and the natural swimming pools are amazing! The beach is only a 25 minute drive, and the Baru (aka Nauyaca) waterfall is also 25 minutes away. I had an amazing experience during my visit, and I highly recommend this stay to anyone! I will be back soon!!

I spent an absolutely lovely and restful week. The setting is beautiful with a very tranquil swimming hole just steps away and other hiking trails for enjoying the jungle atmosphere. Inside, it was quiet, clean, spacious, and comfortable with a nice, hot shower too. The host does a great job of ensuring that her guests are comfortable and well cared for.
