Amazing house. We stayed here for 4 days and loved every minute. It is located on a beautiful farm just minutes away from "la Maceta" and the shops of La Frontera.
Pedro and Marisela were wonderful hosts. We received fresh bread every morning and even picked eggs straight from the farm for breakfast. We can't wait to come and visit again.
We stayed for two weeks in July and were enchanted. Ruben has made a splendid job of renovating a small farm house with thick lava walls. It is a small and cosy place, perfect for a couple, although there is also a small room that could accomodate another person and also a sofa that could serve as a third bed. Everything is very clean and we appreciated that some of the basic products we found in the cupboards (salt, oil, tea, etc) were left there for our use. The nearest house is about a hundred meters down so you won't be disturbed by human activities. But at the same time, the village is very close by and a short walk will take you to the essential services. We would not recommand the house for people with disabilities because you have to walk on an uphill rocky trail for a few dozen meters to reach this little heaven.
Our favorite activities at La Jarita: star gazing and sleeping late in a very soothing silence. Our favorite activities outside of La Jarita: walking in the pine forest, driving around the island to discover rocky alcoves to snorkel, the impeccable intepretation centers and numerous walks.
At first, we planned to stay for 5 days and go island hoping, but decided to stay a full two weeks for we could not imagine a more perfect setting.
The highlight of our stay is the warmth of our host and is family. While he lives on the northern part of the island, he came to visit to offer advice on what to see and where to go, including local events such as traditionnal festivals. He also brought us fruits that he picked himself. We felt truly welcomed and wish that our paths will cross again.
