Pip and Donald have a super piece of heaven in this amazingly biodiverse setting of plants, animals, first class taste, and personality galore! I can't even touch on the level of community awareness and love for what they do, you must go see for yourself this unique gem in paradise. Thank you for your hospitality.

What a magical place...Donald and Pipa have built a tropical retreat featuring their farm, jungle walk, and breakfast aviary. We were mesmerized by the birds that visit at the breakfast porch, the food was excellent, and the hosts were warm, inviting, and knowledgeable. The highlight of our visit was the the concert given by the national orchestra to benefit the...

we really enjoyed our stay in casita Volcano in this place. The house is beautifull in a amazing garden full of plantes and birds and the view is like being outdoor. There is a nice little trail around it, and we saw a slof in his tree. Breakfast is very good too with fresh fruits. Close to Rio céleste.

We booked 3 nights at Casita Tenorio B&B based on the reviews from TripAdvisor and we were not disappointed. The hosts Pip and Donald have built this hideaway with lots of love and you experience it from the moment you walk into this property. The rooms are well designed and cozy. The breakfast was excellent and you get to enjoy...

The Casitas Tenorio were a highlight of our trip to Costa Rica! Pip & Donald have created something truly special here. The casitas are spread out along the property (which is also a working farm), with more than enough privacy and feel more like part of the rainforest rather than a lodge complex. The casitas themselves are gorgeous and luxurious,...

Calm and Nature with little private park far of noise and houses : a lot of animals for lookout !!. Very nice. Only one default. It's a pity that breakfast is really reduced to its simplest expression.

I have to say, this was so far the best place we stayed since the beginning of our trip three weeks ago. First the setting. All the bungalows are amongst a beautiful lush garden, palm trees, banana trees, passiflores, hibiscus, ficus, ... Our accommodation was superb. The floor to ceiling windows gave the impression to be right in the garden...

My Wife and I spent 3 nights in March at the Casitas Tenorio B&B and absolutely loved it! Pip and Donald were very helpful with all our needs as far as day trips, meals out, wildlife tours and basics. Their cabins are clean and beautiful! Wildlife right out your door, Howler monkeys, Sloth, and so many beautiful birds as you...

Even though our stay was brief, it was nothing less than bliss. Donald and Pip are lovely people, and hard as at may be, their beautiful spirits manage to shine just as brightly as the breathtaking surroundings. If you enjoy good people and flora/fauna in a lovely natural environment, you will not be disappointed.

“Our casita was spacious and comfortable. Be aware that some construction is still going on. It did not bother us, however you should expect some noise as they continue to complete a new casita and work to put some finishing touches on others. ”
