Hi, we're Melanie and Kim!

We are a couple from the U.S. living here on site of Casa Dos Rios. We enjoy our lifestyle of hosting guests, gardening, sailing, surfing, practicing yoga and living partially off the land with our many fruit trees. These trees attract the four kinds of monkeys that live in our region of Costa Rica. The scarlet macaws also stop in for almonds from our trees.
There are so many sights of nature here, it is an amazing experience living here every day. We hear so many great reviews from our guests because it is truly a special environment with a home that gives a tree- house feel.
The sea out front is ever changing, waves lulling one to sleep at night. We never tire of seeing the wildlife that happens through our property because of our rainforest situate. People who come for less time, always comment that they wish they had stayed here longer. A week is almost too little time here.

Here is our property:

Great Stay at Casa Dos Rios

“ Excellent ”
February 11, 2011
We just returned from a wonderful vacation at the most beautiful place we've ever seen. Kim and Melanie were fabulous hosts and their beachfront house is nestled just inside the rainforrest. Each morning we had our coffee on the deck and watched the wave roll in on the beach while the beautiful cobalt blue butterflies passed by. We fell asleep each night to the sound of the waves and the crickets and awoke each morning to the sound of the howler monkeys. The beach house is unique and well built - we felt as though we were living in a tree house. We had endless areas to explore including beaches to walk on, rivers to hike through, and trails through the jungle to hike on. There is even a great little jungle bar within walking distance. Our hosts are very informative and knowlegable about the area so we actually learned more on this holiday than any other. We had sunshine every day and only a light breeze. The ocean water here is very warm, when the tide goes out there are small pools of water in the rocks that are as warm as bath water. If we needed to cool down we strolled through a river. This was a very memorable vacation! Sandi & Ken Jackson
