vacation rental description

Rancho Montecito is a 260-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 the perfect and unique vacation. Those who enjoy hiking, trail riding, mountain biking, bird watching or just 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, 15 minutes from Atenas, only 45 minutes to the beach and 35 minutes into San Jose. There are many fabulous day trips that can be enjoyed while using the farmhouse as base.

Wake up 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 dining hall), 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.

UNION BETWEEN WORKING FARM AND COMFORTABLE FARM : 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, learning and relaxing. While the farmhouse is rustic and spacious it is comfortably laid out. Visitors spend most of the day outdoors. Arrangements can be made for guests to participate in farm activities, from cultivating organic produce and working hands-on with livestock, to reforestation, trail rides, hiking or helping out in the community. We can also arrange for Spanish classes to be taught to the group or individually. It is of utmost importance to us that guests of Rancho Montecito come to relax and reconnect with themselves, their group and with nature.

On the Farm Adventure: Horseback ride on trails around the farm, to nearby rivers, local villages, cantinas, fiestas, round up cattle, hike or mountain bike.

  • 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.

Amazing experience in Costa Rica

Review submitted: July 16, 2014   Date of arrival: June 23, 2014

My experience in this beautiful place has no way to explain in words exactly, but I'll try to do it. The property is beautiful and the energy emanating from this place is simply radiant. Animals, nature, oxygen, all this combined creates something called Paradise!

As the facilities I give them 10 star! They are beautiful something that anyone could call a second home ... The pool scene is like an oasis in the middle of nature ... The Rancho has a simply spectacular view ... The rooms and decor are sober!

Anyone wishing to enjoy a real and welcoming experience in Costa Rica should not think 2 times and visit this beautiful and lush place recommended and 100% guaranteed!

Amazing experience in Costa Rica ... Thank Rancho Montecitos...

Awesome!

Review submitted: April 6, 2011   Date of arrival: May 7, 2010

If you are looking for adventures close to nature & authentic farm life, do not miss a stay on this farm. The nature is impressive (first of all the primary forest), the farm is well maintained & there are a lot of things to do. From the swimming pool you have a great view over the wooded hills. It is perfect to forget the everyday life!

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, pet-friendly, romantic getaway
