I will definitely be back
Sara Perez March 22, 2017
This was one of the most amazing places I have ever stayed. Both Michael and Ed were very warm and welcoming and had tons of activities that we were able to do. The room we stayed in was so lovey and quite and just what I needed to unplug from my everyday life. The fresh food and views were 5 stars in my book. The only thing that I can say that need to be improved is that I need more time off. I will be back for sure.

Our stay at Michael and Ed’s place was simply perfect. It was for us, the best way to end our trip in Costa Rica. After spending a few days in the most touristic places in the country, we were looking for a quiet place to relax, practice Yoga and meet locals. That’s exactly what we found at Michael and Ed’s place, but not only : we were able to visit beautiful surrounding (including Volcan Poas), to enjoy an amazing landscape from the house, to explore the cities around (Grecia, Sarchi), eat great food and most importantly : meet Michael and Continue Reading
Hands Down The Best

Hands down the best airbnb we stayed at. The property is amazing, with a beautiful view over the valley, a well equiped kitchen, the prettiest yoga studio and the most confortable bedroom. My boyfriend and I stayed there for a few days at the end of our trip and it was perfect, very relaxing. Michael and Ed were very welcoming, kind, sweet and relaxed, as well as very open-minded. We had the pleasure to get to know them over diner. They also served us delicious fresh fruits and pastries for breakfast. We took a yoga class which was very inspiring Continue Reading

My stay could not have been more pleasant. The hosts were very accommodating, gracious and knowledgeable of the area. I have already threatened them with my return. Anyone wishing to visit Costa Rica should consider this area. The vista from the patio was breath taking.

First off, the location is fantastic – close enough but far enough away that you really get to enjoy the beauty of Costa Rica’s mountains. Their view is breathtaking! Mike and Ed are incredibly hospitable. This was my first travel to Costa Rica, and outside of the US, and alone, and they made my travel so relaxing and easygoing! The yoga they offer is fantastic and you get to meet some of the locals, as well as any other events they may have going on at their abode while you are there. Everyone I met was fantastic, positive, good energy Continue Reading

Michael and Ed were fantastic hosts, even during a rather stressful visit to the country — we came came to visit over the Thanksgiving holiday, right as the first ever recorded hurricane was hitting Costa Rica! Michael and Ed’s calm, welcoming, and kind demeanor really put us at ease. The “adult-sized” bunk beds were so fun and SO comfortable. The room itself is well-designed and decorated, and stocked with all the necessary creature comforts. We truly enjoyed getting to know Michael, Ed, and their adorable pets in the morning over a couple mugs of delicious french press coffee, fresh fruit, Continue Reading

If you are planning your Costa Rican tour, this is a must stop. With a stellar view of volcano Barvo and the lush valley below, his quintessential retreat is perfectly laid out for guests to relax, enjoy plenty of private space as well as nature, and even participate in one of Ed’s yoga classes. Ed & Michael were more than accommodating, making sure we knew where we were going, and offered excellent choices of local inexpensive restaurants. The suite was bright, airy, comfortable bed, excellent hot water pressure, a mini fridge as well as coffee pot, and for those needing Continue Reading

Nuestra experiencia ha sido inmejorable, llegamos tarde a la casa y nos recibieron super bien! Incluso no teníamos nada de cenar y nos dieron una sopa con verduras espectacular! Muy limpio todo y un desayuno muy completo. Muy agradecidos y esperamos volver mas adelante!

This location is in the mountains with a wonderful view of the Poas volcano. It is a nature lovers dream. It is away from town but there are buses and locals to act as taxis. Ed and Michael facilated to make sure we saw the sights. Healthy food, yoga, and hiking caused me to return home lighter and more fit. My friend was elated with the photo opportunities. I didn’t want to leave
What’s Not To Like

I own vacation rentals including one in Costa Rica, so I consider myself a pretty critical guest who notices details. Michael and Ed were awesome hosts, and their Ser La Luz retreat is really sweet! I stayed 2 nights while I recovered from dental surgery, and very much enjoyed the spacious & clean room, beautiful views of the volcano & valley, and their service. They arranged a driver to bring me from surgery, made smoothies for me, provided some aromatherapy, and otherwise did everything I could ask and more to make my stay great. I would highly recommend it to Continue Reading
