vacation rental description


We invite you to discover our Casita. This is not a large commercial development. You’ll be our only guests. If you’re looking for a party atmosphere, this is definitely not for you.

This comfy 500 sq ft cottage is a fully furnished and appointed one bedroom guest house on our 4.5 acre gated mountain-top ocean view property. The main house is nearby and the casita is situated to afford complete privacy.

Our mountain setting affords pleasant temperatures year-round, typically mid 70s days, cooling to the 60s in the evening. No air conditioning necessary.


The master bedroom features a Queen Size pillow top bed with 100% cotton sheets, down pillows, beautiful hardwood bureau, side tables, reading lamps, and an alarm clock. The bath has ceramic tile floors and walls, hair dryer and an over-size glass enclosed shower. The light fixture, towel bars, mirror, and shelving are custom wrought iron, crafted by a local San Ramon Ironworker.

• Tropical wood ceilings

• Ceramic countertops

• All water to the house is filtered and safe to drink

We've installed a small safe in the casita for your use.


With GPS COORDINATES of N10 01.703 W84 28.507, our property is located in the mountains 15 minutes from downtown San Ramon on an excellent two lane paved road. We're at an altitude of 4850ft with breathtaking views of the city of Puntarenas 30 miles away on the Gulf Nicoya, the Nicoya Peninsula, and Pacific Ocean beyond.

San Ramon is a medium size city with all services including an excellent hospital, universities, service stations, several supermarkets, many small restaurants and sodas(small restaurants serving typical Costa Rican food, and a small modern mall with a three screen multiplex.

Our central location is perfect for day trips to explore the area. We’re 45 minutes from the airport (SJO), and less than an hour to Pacific beaches, Sarchi, or Zarcero. Poas and Arenal volcanos, cloud forests,zip lines, hanging bridges, and bungee jumping are all within an hour or two away.

traveler reviews for this san ramon cottage rental

A Wonderful Mountain Retreat!

Review submitted: August 31, 2014   Date of arrival: August 12, 2014

We spent 2 weeks in this lovely casita and loved every minute! The casita is comfortable,clean, well equipped and has an ever changing view as the clouds blow by and reveal the stunning panoramic view of the Gulf of Nicoya. We were visited by a variety of birds and butterflies daily as the grounds are beautifully kept. Norm and Collie were awesome hosts! Collie greeted us with fresh muffins, and they were both a wealth of information and ideas about living in Costa Rica. Their directions for finding the property were extremely accurate. You must have a 4 wheel drive to get around Costa Rica, and , as we discovered, a GPS is a good idea as the signage is not the greatest!
The San Ramon area has lots to offer. Be sure and go to the Farmers' Market on Friday afternoons! We explored the Atenas, Grecia, and Sarchi areas, the Botanical Garden in Sarchi is lovely, soaked in the surf at Playa Dona Ana, enjoyed massages at Villa Blanca and also took in the La Garita Animal Habitat, The Butterfly Farm and Rancho San Miguel in La Guacima and the La Paz Waterfall Garden. We also just curled up and watched the lightening over the coast! There is no TV and the DVDs were not working, but the WiFi is excellent, so we used that for Netflix and reading. All in all, we would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a quiet retreat from the hectic world below, and we would stay there again.

Recommended for: age 55+, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: Anne,
Thanks for your kind words. So sorry that the DVD player didn't work for you. We replaced it. Fortunately the WI-FI met your needs!
Hope to see you again!

The very best!

Review submitted: May 14, 2014   Date of arrival: May 1, 2014

We met Norm & Collie two years ago when we first stayed on their mountain.

My wife found the casita on-line; I was a bit apprehensive at first. It seemed like a site out of time and place.

Now, I'm a convert.

Comfortable lodgings, easy access, great location...

Did I mention that we are going to build our retirement home in the area?

Love the place! Cannot say enough good things about Norm & Collies casita!!

Excellent, very clean, and friendly accomodations!!!

Review submitted: May 3, 2014   Date of arrival: April 25, 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed this mountain top casita. Great views, very private, easy internet, terrific shower and bed, wondrefull, friendly and helpfull hosts (Collie and Norm), and an outstanding library of movies (over 1000). Also, we enjoyed the 20 minute hiking trail around their property, and (of cousre) Collie's delicious banana bread! Everything was perfect and exceeded our expections. We very highly recommend it! Oh yes, Norm's directions were precise; and, Collie and Norm were very helpfull in answering all our questions about restuarants, living in Costa Rica, and where to buy groceries. Be sure to visit the farmers market if you are there on a Friday or Saturday!

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, people with disabilities, girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway
