Lovely home, lovely community, amazing people!

  • 5 de 5

We do not like touristy, busy vacations. We were looking for nature, the simple life and getting away from it all. This place fit the bill! Yes, getting there (that road!) was an experience, but as Ticos say "you get used to it." The house is something else! It is an architectural beauty! Be aware that you have to climb a steel, secured to the wall, ladder to get up to the 3rd floor loft which wasn't a problem for us, but could be for some. The outdoor jacuzzi is not working, but the indoor jacuzzi tub does work. We had no problem with wifi and the television had English channels (although we didn't watch much tv.) What we really enjoyed is walking to the village (3 minutes) and getting to know the people at the restaurants, stores and the local bar where our family (kids too) ate many nights. The bar owner accommodated our various dietary restrictions w/help from a local who spoke English. The local market there has basic items and food. However, I would load up w/groceries in Sarchi before going over that mountain road! It's far and the road is not for the faint at heart. My daughter got a fever and fell ill one night. I panicked a little as we were far from a hospital. I called the property manager Jadir, who was great. He called the village nurse and she came over at 9:00 at night and gave my daughter some type of extensive glandular massage on her arms and stomach w/olive oil plus had her drink some concoction with lemon, soda water and salt. In the morning my daughter was 100% better! Oh, and the price? Nothing. She said it was a "present." My daughter also went to the medical clinic for an infected toe. We got antibiotics and the price? FREE! The people there are so NICE! We really made a lot of friends and connections in that small village. Yes, we did the El Silencio hike and lunch which was breathtaking and delicious, and we went ziplining in La Fortuna, swam in the thermal pools, etc, but it was truly the people there that made our vacation!

Now back to the house; we had no problems. It's got everything you could want! We did temporarily adopt a little gray tabby cat who came morning and night, like clockwork to get some food. If you see him, please give him a pet and an snack. He is homeless, like many cats and dogs there.

Christopher was great to deal with. You have a beautiful home in a beautiful setting! By the way, BRING A THICK SWEATER! It gets chilly at night and rains sometimes! 5 STARS!

Resposta do proprietário: Thank you for your comments Laura. We always appreciate feedback. I'm very glad to hear you enjoyed your time and really connected with the people. Costa Rica has so much to offer and the happy, friendly people make everything so much more special. A few comments: 1. Unfortunately we have given up on our outdoor Jacuzzi and it is not advertised for use anymore. It has been impossible to get parts and service in a timely fashion and has proved to be somewhat unreliable. As you note, the indoor two person Jacuzzi tub is available. 2. Yes, the roads in Costa Rica can be a challenge. Ours is just finishing a construction phase and is much improved. 3. Our house manager Jadir generally takes our guests shopping on the way to the chalet but I believe you were too late arriving for this. The village has a pretty good grocery store now but certainly completing a shopping in Sarchi or Zarcero makes the most sense. 4. We are located about 20 minutes from a major hospital (Zarcero or Sarchi) but there is a doctor in the village Monday to Friday and of course the nurse you met is generally available at any time. Pura Vida!

Quiet Mountain Retreat

  • 5 de 5

Thanks to Christopher and Pilly for a wonderful month of country living. Bajos del Toro was quaint, safe, quiet and lovely. Having our coffee on the deck and watching the smoke rise from Poas Volcano was heavenly. Although the chalet is a bit of a drive from touristy attractions, it was ideal for us. We added over 110 new birds to our bird count, enjoyed El Silencio, LaPaz, Arenal, Tabacon Hot Springs, Poas Volcano, Catarata del Toro and the Caribbean lowlands. Beautifully decorated, contemporary home. It was like living in a house straight out of "Architectural Digest". The furnishings were impeccable. Everyone was friendly, helpful and kind with our "Spanglish". Beds were comfortable. Kitchen was well furnished. Take a sweater, it gets a bit chilly.

5 Stars!

  • 5 de 5

5 Star accommodation. Beautiful chalet, modern and with all the ammenities. Nice to have high speed internet access and laundry facilities. Next time I would travel with less since all the conveniences of home (and more) are there. The location is centrally located and we were able to travel to the Carribean and Pacific sides from the chalet.

Best of all was the assistance and hospitality of Chris and Pilly. They do everything to help you with attractions and travelling within the country.

Speaking of attractions, we were able to enjoy: hiking in National Parks, snorkelling, horseback riding, volcano sightseeing, zip lines through the jungle(my favourite), and just enjoying the incredble scenery of Costa Rica.

Hope I am lucky enough to come back soon.

One of our best vacations

  • 5 de 5

The Chalet was great. It was exactly as described and better. Chris Downey and his friends were very helpful starting with how to get to the chalet to places to visit. Eriberto met us at Grecia and guided us to the chalet after loading up at the local grocery store. We had a great time at the chalet with plenty of relaxation and fun. The chalet was very well maintained with all the amenities.The GPS provided by Chris was a godsend in Costa Rica and I could not thank him enough for that alone. We did write a more elaborate review in the guest book comments at the home. Bajo del toro amarillo was a quiet and beautiful place to stay and we enjoyed every minute of it. We drove extensively to all the usual volcano, waterfall and rainforest destinations. We did hire a driver for the trip to Jaco and Manuel Antonio national park. It was worth the money. The mountain roads of Costar Rica need a separate forum to discuss. We had thrills of our lives driving through the mountains. Costa Ricans (Ticos) are the most friendly people we've ever met. It was a very memorable vacation. Highly recommend this chalet for the location, unique architecture and value.

A lunch at the El Silencio lodge was the pinnacle of our trip. It was fantastic and is a must for everybody who stays here. Reservations are required, even though we showed up for lunch without one and were graciously accomodated.

Thanks Chris, for everything.

Absolutely Breathtaking!!!

  • 5 de 5

We were a group of 5 (it was a first time trip to Costa Rica for all of us). Our plane got in at night and on the scary drive up it starting raining and it was foggy and we could only marvel at the beauty of the inside of the house. The next morning every person awoke with the same expression...beautiful. The house is surrounded by mountains and the beauty of the area of Toro Amarillo is breathtaking. We loved every mintue of it.

The house slept all of us comfortably. The house is a modern thing of beauty surrounded by quaint country houses. I spent a fair amount of time cooking in the kitchen and all the appliances were modern and plentiful.

We had everything we needed at our fingertips from the internet to satellite tv to a hot bubbly jacuzzi. By the way sitting under the stars at night in the jacuzzi was simply wonderful. I can't say enough good things about this house and the entire country of Costa Rica.

The home was beautifully maintained inside and out; everything was just perfect.

This was our home away from home, and Costa Rica is definitely our new favorite destination.

Also the entire time we were there we had a driver from one of the local tour companies. Our driver was EXCELLENT (friendly, knowledgeable, bilingual)--driving would have been scary and confusing for us so having a driver was most beneficial--and I would definitely use a driver service while in Costa Rica.

We tried to see as much of the country as possible from the beach to white water rafting to caving to the volcanos to the waterfalls and we still feel like we missed a lot---this country has so many exciting and challenging activites to do.

Nos vemos pronto Costa Rica (see you soon Costa Rica!!!)

Resposta do proprietário: We typically meet our guests in Grecia which is very easy to find from San Jose (about 40 minutes). Once in Grecia we help our guests provision, lead them to the chalet over the mountain, show them the amenities and let them settle in. We also provide a GPS and cell phone for the remainder of their trip so they can travel with confidence! Most flights arrive in the daytime hours and typically the weather is clear but when it's not we're there to assist. Sam's party elected to use a local driver who unfortunately made a couple of wrong turns. Our lesson in this is to meet our guests in Grecia regardless of their use of local transportation. Thank you Gigi and Tera for another 5/5! We're very pleased and proud our guests enjoy our chalet and the Costa Rican experience!

Peaceful house, adventurous days!

  • 5 de 5

This was our first trip to Costa Rica, and when I saw the chalet on the website, I knew this was the place for us. Our group ranged from 40-68, and we like off the beaten path. Staying at Baja de Toro was perfect for this group. If you like to be in the middle of the action, this place is not for you. 30 -45 minutes to groceries; many days we drove for several hours, but the drives were beautiful and part of the adventure of Costa Rica. The house was beautiful; waking up to the view of the volcanos/mountains was breath taking. Pilly was great--we met him in Grecias and we went to the market with him--and then followed him up and up and up to the chalet.

Breakfasts with Seleni were delicious--we had long days, so starting off with a hearty breakfast kept us going for hours before late lunches.

We hiked at El Silencio (and had the best lunch in CR there), went hiking at Arenal, visited a butterfly conservancy, toured a coffee plantation (Espiritu Sanctu), visited the Elyse Kunsler botanical gardens (where we had a private tour with the Director), volunteered at an animal rescue center, soaked in the thermal spas at Basque de Termales, hiked the Los Angeles Cloud Forest (and ziplined there) and drove the closed road to La Paz Waterfall gardens where we rode an ox cart and hand fed the hummingbirds. (You can ford streams with 4 x4's). We cooked at the house a few nights. Love the gas grill on the upper level.

The house was a good set up for 7 folks. Love the design! The kitchen and bathrooms are to die for. We only had a few issues, one of which the hot tub, which Pilly had repaired, but the repair did not work. Hot water can be a little finicky, but a little patience goes a long way. Internet dial up did not work, but I had my Blackberry from work so we had a connection to the web. (Plus who wants to spend time on the computer in CR??) Having the GPS was a lifesaver, since maps and road signs are optional in CR.

Chris and Pilly were really helpful as we planned out trip and Pilly checked in on us. Overall, we had a great trip and would recommend the house if you are willing to drive (or be driven) to the major attractions.

Resposta do proprietário: Thanks for the feedback Donna. Just a few clarifications: The hot tub was working but it takes 2.5-3 hours to heat up fully so you do have to be patient. Hot water is provided by an instant heater but you have to, as Donna indicates, adjust the faucet slowly so you don't overshoot the desired temperature. We have now replaced the dial-up internet (which was not very reliable and of course slow) with a high speed connection and it works wonderfully! We have a notebook at the chalet available for our guests use. There is a small shop in the village to pick up sundry items but major grocery shopping is 30 minutes in Sarchi or Zarcero. There are many attractions very close by and I honestly can't think of a better location which brings you closer or places you more centrally than our chalet. Within 10 minutes there is fine dining, cooking lessons, spa facilities, hiking, mountain climbing, bird and wildlife watching in the national park, two sets of waterfalls, fly fishing and botanical gardens. Within an hour there is rafting, wildlife reserves, coffee plantations, hot springs, horse back riding, mountain bike riding (you can rent a bike), canopy tours, Poas volcano, souvenir shopping, nurseries and lots more! If you're looking for something specific, just ask and we'll let you know where you can find it!
