Welcome to a private reserve in a true rainforest setting. Two of us live here as caretakers together with a cat, a dog and and all the possible forest creatures.

Always wanted to be in real tropical nature? This is your opportunity. You will be surrounded only by nature and it's sounds, able to watch stars without light pollution. You can explore cacao orchard, a live collection of forest orchids, rainforest streams and a network of trails, relax on a covered wooden platform at the lake or in a hammock next to bird trees. This is a great place for birdwatching and nature photos. Tired of the heat of lowland- and coastal Costa Rica? It feels more fresh here, 600m above sea level.

There are 4 simple wooden buildings, 50 m from each other, a 1ha lake for own hydropower (swim or catch fish) and cacao orchard, in total 4 hectares of relatively open area with low grass cover. The rest of the property is forest with rivers, streams and some trails.

We are located 3km from the nearest reliable neighbors. Landscape - forest, lake, pasture, no other houses in a visible distance. First pasture hut is 500m from us, followed by scattered developments downhill. 7km from international highway, 9km from the nearest town, 50km - San Jose, 100 km - Caribbean beaches.

We are looking for two mature house sitters who know countryside living. You must be able to stay in a place that is a bit remote and in a modest accommodation. Being a tropical forest, this is not a place safe enough for children. One of you always has to be on the property.

Our cat Bamboo and dog Gijo are interested in good company (both no special breed and quite healthy). You must love cats. Bamboo is afraid of strangers and we expect you to do your best to befriend him.
