We are a 50 something Buddhist couple from the US who has lived in Costa Rica since 2003. We live quietly on our gorgeous property and enjoy sharing it with others. This is a rural area, but close to the city. It is cooler up here than much of the country with temps ranging from 60 - 80 degrees.

Wendy Strebe purchased this cottage in 2010

If you are looking for a restful, restorative place to spend some time reading, writing, meditating, seeing the area, wandering around the property, this is a great place. You can drive or take a bus to a small town or the city of Heredia, from our front gate. It is very tranquil up here with amazing views of the valley below and the ocean beyond.

Safe and secure; breathtakingly gorgeous; relaxing; close to canopy tour, coffee tour, Barva Volcano, Poas Volcano, etc. This is the mountain life of Costa Rica, very different from the beach life. Always cool with fresh air and pure spring water. Owner is a vibrational healer and treatments are available: mettavibrationalhealing.com

PEACEFUL, ENERGIZING SANCTUARY

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I spent two weeks at this heavenly place in February, 2014. The cooler climate with the sun shining through a two hour light mist most afternoons was a welcome change from the steamy beach community that we left. Casa Meta has the most comfortable bed we've slept in during our four winters in Costa Rica. The property exceeded our expectations, and every detail in the design and furnishings in this cozy "cabin" has been carefully and effectively planned. The outdoor environment is colorful, lush, and lovingly tended, and I looked forward to warming up like a turtle on the upper deck in the morning with coffee and a book. The view of the Central Valley from the infinity pool is an awesome sight. The property is very private, but just a bus or taxi ride from groceries or shopping in modern Heredia. We feel very fortunate to have spent time at this beautiful place and to have come to know Eric and Wendy, friends that we look forward to seeing again.

TRANQUILITY THAT CREATES DEEP HEALING & RENEWAL

Tranquility that creates deep healing & renewal
  • 5 out of 5
Here is a place to receive... the sound of the breeze in the trees, the huge double rainbows that light up the sky with the refreshing "hair of the cat" (pelo del gato) mist, the quality of soft light, the Buddha's that live throughout the property, tho' made of stone are alive with mirth & joy...! Every minute I spent here exploring on this magical site, in the cozy guesthouse with its beautiful glassed-in porch & by the salt water infinity pool overlooking a stunning view of the mountains & ocean was filled with discovery & delight. The plantings & gardens are beautiful & there are some magical places to discover hiking the grounds. In the quiet & retreat feeling I went deeply within myself, into places for healing & by the time I left I felt very renewed & refreshed. The hosts were delightfully helpful & friendly & highly sensitive to healthy boundaries. They made me feel so comfortable & welcome. Make sure to book a session with the hostess for her skillful energy healing work. It is well worth making special time to experience. No trip to Costa Rica would be complete without this unique place to stay. I can't wait to be there again!

TRANQUIL PARADISE!

  • 5 out of 5
Loved our stay here which was one of our stops on our honeymoon! Everything is so sustainable, from the container home itself to the glassed in porch made from old diapers. The grounds are gorgeous and the deck on the roof of the house with the hammocks is heavenly. And the bed is to die for! After a week sleeping on an uncomfortable mattress at our previous location, we literally grinned from ear to ear when we crawled in. Owners were very responsive and you can tell they take pride in their property.Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: We do try to everything as sustainable as possible. The Lotus House veranda deck and upper deck are made of a product made from recycled diapers. It is a very "green" material.

We also love honeymooners!

GREAT MOUNTAIN GETAWAY

  • 5 out of 5
We liked the amazing modern mountain cabin so much that my husband and I have stayed there on two different occasions. We live in the hot and humid Carribean coast of Costa Rica, so for us it is a great getaway with cooler climate and different vegetation than in our part of the country. The cabin is spacious, extremely clean, and it has everything that you would need. No money spared on the top quatlity mattresses, sheets and towels. There is a nice deck outside the front glass doors and on top of the cabin as well. It is very private from the main house where the great hosts Erich and Wendy live with their family and pets. Grounds and the pool are immaculate and the whole property has a very peaceful feeling. Great place to visit to do nothing or you can visit the nearby volcanos, coffee plantations, waterfalls etc. We can't wait to return.
