vacation rental description

Rancho Montecito is a 250-acre working cattle and fruit farm that has amenities for those who want to escape the world, families or groups wishing to get together in a spacious outdoor environment. It is the perfect setting to unwind, breathe fresh air and just have a perfect and unique vacation. Those who enjoy hiking, trail riding, bird watching, photography, relaxing and gathering with friends and family by the pool, will experience the best of Costa Rica, (an off the tourist grid vacation-truly unique!!!).

Rancho Montecito farm is located 5 km south off Hwy 27 in the Central Valley, 20 minutes from Atenas, only 45 minutes to the beaches (Jaco, Puntarenas, Herradura) and 35 minutes into San Jose. There are many fabulous day trips that can be enjoyed while using the farmhouse as base. Suggested ideas for day trips would be: a day at the beach, visiting Poas volcano, shopping for souvenirs and visiting an impressively old mill and carpentry shop in Sarchi, Canopy ziplines, Zoo Ave (hospital for wild animals to rehabilitate), San Jose to experience the capital, and there are many more suggestions which we would be happy to help you with.

While staying at Rancho Montecito you will wake to the sounds of birds, wildlife and farm animals, luxuriate in the magnificent broad views with three volcanoes in the distant background. Hike the dense primary and secondary forests, enjoy the diverse tropical flora, fruit trees, livestock, horses and wildlife and drink from the fresh springs. There is no healthier way to relax than be surrounded by nature and all its magnificence.

Included is a 6 bedroom country house with large porch, swimming pool, and Rancho (open air kitchen/dining room), a common room for movies or educational purpose, and lots of terrific hikes. Facilities are fully equipped with linens, laundry, complete kitchen, television, DVD, stereo, internet, Wi-Fi, and games.

THE UNION BETWEEN WORKING FARM AND COMFORTABLE VACATION FARMSTAY : At Rancho Montecito we believe in the importance of global and environmental awareness, the development of sustainable living practices, cultural exposure, and most importantly, fresh air and healthy outdoor activity and fun. We provide an environment conducive to healthy living, and relaxing. While the farmhouse is rustic and spacious it is comfortably laid out. Visitors spend most of the day outdoors. It is of utmost importance to us that guests of Rancho Montecito come to relax and reconnect with themselves, their group and with nature.

  • Notes
    • Roads in Costa Rica are part of the adventure. The property is 5 km off road. Access to the property is only by 4 X 4 SUV. Please be sure to rent a 4 X 4 SUV. What to Bring? A camera, you won't want to forget your experience. Binoculars for bird watching and wildlife spotting. Cap or hat . Sunscreen and bug repellent – if you're especially sweet. Waterproof hiking boots or rubber boots or old boots/shoes – for hiking. Not your everyday shoes! A sweater and swimsuit, Flashlight – it can get pretty dark out there at night. Something to do if it rains – books, games, cards, etc. B.Y.O.B. – if desired. It's not easy to find in this neck of the woods. So bring your most favorite.

Quiet Paradise

Review submitted: August 16, 2014   Date of arrival: August 3, 2014

Never had I imaged that my first trip to Costa Rica would be so perfect! The morning views were astounding and peaceful with an occasional visit by a toucan, hummingbird, or butterfly. Not only were the mornings memorable but each night I was serenaded by the sweet lullabies of the Costa Rican wildlife. During the day, my son enjoyed swinging and cannon balling into the pool, which happens to be surrounded by paradise. And when swimming was no longer of interest, he played on the ping pong table, watched a movie, or played board games, which were all provided by the farm. The facilities were extremely clean and well-maintained, but most importantly, the staff were extremely professional and helpful. They organized a horseback tour of the farm and provided great suggestions and travel accommodations for other activities like zip lining, water rafting, surfing, and volcano tours. I could not have asked for a more perfect getaway and it was all because of the amazing staff.

5 Star Ranch!

Review submitted: August 13, 2014   Date of arrival: August 3, 2014

Rancho Montecito far exceeded my expectations! The property is stunning, with a friendly professional staff and breathtaking views. The photos pale in comparison to the actual property and views.

The manager was extremely helpful in helping us navigate our way up and down the Pacific Coast. Management also made excellent recommendations for activities and attractions. The canopy zip- lining, volcano and hot springs did not disappoint!

We plan on returning next summer with a group of friends for an extended stay!
