Description of the Monteverde vacation cottage rental
The Quetzal's Nest is a small home located within a short walk of the Monteverde Cloudforest Reserve. Our garden hosts Quetzals, Mot Mots, Hummingbirds, Coatamundis, Tropical Foxes, even (once) a cougar!

The owner is a US based Costa Rica tour operator. This is our own personal hideaway. I am happy to assist you with discounted rental cars, transportation, tours, hotels in other regions of the country, along with local info. We have been in business since 1992, so I have lots of information and advice to share!

Our cottage features two bedrooms with a queen bed in each. There is a small bath with a shower. The vanity is in the common area, making it easier for a family to prepare for a busy day. Email me to get a link to a video of the cottage.

We recently upgraded our kitchen. The kitchen features ceramic tile countertops, modern triple sink, new refridgerator with freezer, cook top, toaster oven and microwave. We also have all the necessary glasses, plates, flatware, pots, pans, cooking utensils, etc.

Have coffee on our covered patio where you can relax on comfortable benches and watch the hummingbirds.

Our local manager can assist with tours to ziplines, forest canopy bridges, and coffee plantations. She is usually available, and her husband offers a taxi service to help you move about locally and coming and going from other regions.

Though the house will sleep six, we think four adults is about the maximum that will be comfortable. But the futon in the living room will be comfy of the kids.

Area Information
Monteverde offers the perfect combination of natural beauty and interesting people. As a matter of fact this area is almost the perfect model for nature and people coexisting harmoniously.

In the early 1950s a small group of Quaker dairy farmers from the US settled on the mountain. The Quakers, with their peaceful ways, and respect for the environment, were a perfect match for the hard working, gentle Costa Ricans already living here. Since that time, several reserves have been founded where you can walk for hours in the splendor of the cloudforest.

Many artists, researchers and educators either make their homes here or are frequent visitors. Several alternative schools, an institute for cloudforest education, a woman's arts cooperative, numerous galleries and unique giftshops illustrate the cultural experience awaiting you here.

Numerous canopy adventures (both walkways and ziplines), coffee plantations, an orchid garden, a butterfly farm, a rainforest tram, a frog zoo, a serpentarium and insectarium can also be found here.
