L'appartamento è molto grazioso, pulito e ben arredato, con una splendida vista sulla giungla. Abbiamo potuto ammirare dei tucani proprio fuori dalla nostra camera. I proprietari sono estremamente gentili e sorridenti. Abbiamo potuto cucinarci uova strapazzate nella cucina ad uso comune, inoltre i gentili proprietari avevano messo a disposizione un caspo di banane e succo di frutta. Avrei investito qualcosa in più per letti e cuscini più confortevoli, ma è stata comunque un'esperienza memorabile dormire con le finestre aperte, come abbracciati dalla giungla con tutti i suoi suoni.

We stayed in Lodge 3 at the very special Valley of Dreams Eco Lodge; 20 minutes drive outside of ‘Dominical’ run passionately by Annie and Matt. Such a great, peaceful place to unwind. Lots of private trails and walks on their land. Matt and Annie are an amazing, friendly, welcoming couple who moved there to set up their 4 lodges and have worked hard to create their dream of eco cabins, which they have definitely achieved. Each lodge has a basic kitchen plus there is also the option of using a very well-equipped shared kitchen, that also has a dining area. You can also use their fire pit and pool. There is a lovely little village a few kilometres away, with some supermarkets, restaurants and a bakery. We were only booked to stay for 1 night but due to an illness, they both rearranged their plans and went out of their way to accommodate us for an extra night, plus made sure we were well, comfortable and had everything we needed. So many thanks to you both and good luck for the future!

Este es sin duda el mejor sitio en el que nos hospedamos en nuestro viaje por Costa Rica!! Hicimos la reserva a través de Airbnb y Matt & Annie se pusieron en seguida en contacto con nosotros. Es Lodge es muy muy acogedor así como la casa principal, de la cual nos ofrecieron utilizar la lavadora y la cocina si queríamos. Matt tiene contacto con una de las escuelas de surf más recomendadas en Dominical, y nos ayudó a reservar una clase con ellos. Recomiendo ver el atardecer desde las hamacas de la casa y por la noche las estrellas, visitar las cataratas Nauyaca y pasar por el restaurante La Rana Roja (para ir al restaurante en coche hay que pasar un puente colgante muy estrecho...) Nos quedamos con ganas de estar mas días y esperamos volver alguna vez!!

This is our favourite Air Bnb place that we have stayed in and we have stayed at many Air BnB places during the last 5 years. We rented a 2 bedroom villa for 5 nights in December 2018 and had a great time. The hosts Annie and Matt were very friendly and helpful. The location was a good, not on the because but close enough that we could drive to local beaches for a day of surf and sun. The location also enabled us to enjoy local waterfalls, streams and hiking. The scenery was spectacular.

We cancelled the first of our 2 nights last minute simply because our schedule was too tight. This was the owners' response: "Please don't worry about anything, we will see you in the morning. We hope everything is ok". No cancellation fees, no worries; we were happy! The next day we arrived to this wonderful place, a little up in the mountains offering comfortable breezes, and spectacular views. We needed this place to relax after some busy days, so we decided to stay longer. We were able to extend our stay day by day, and in total we stayed a full week! Everything was spotless, and all was taken care of in detail (garden, common areas, and the apartments!!). You can tell Matt & Annie are proud of their little paradise, and want to share this with their guests! Great hospitality, and they're ready to help out in any way possible! I like to end with: if you have your own wheels, it is totally worth the 15-minute drive up the mountain, after a nice afternoon at the beach, or nearby waterfalls. The tranquility, comfort, great climate, pool, surrounding nature, excellent views, and Matt & Annie's continues smiles can't be beat. It's like coming home!

Matt and Annie are the best hosts ever! The place is very special, and definite recommendation for all! The valley is loaded with precious rivers and waterfalls. This is where you have close encounter with the rich culture and hang out with the locals, which happen to be the warmest people I have ever met! Can't wait to visit again!

Como turista nacional es un gusto que lo reciban a uno de una manera tan especial, que maravillosos anfitriones Annie y Matt, super atentos y conversadores y además admirables con la historia de Natte y Otto. Es increíble pensar que a pesar de vivir toda la vida es este país, no conocía esta hermosa zona. Muy satisfechos con la cabaña, muy acogedora, bien distribuida, agua caliente, atardecer hermoso, las camas muy comodas, dormimos muy placenteramente y amanecer escuchando los pajaritos fue muy lindo, me gustó que no ocupamos aire acondicionado muchísima ventilación y protección contra mosquitos. Muy aseado, ordenado y hay de todo en utensilios en el área común, hasta para hacer un postre jaja. Piscina muy fresca. Muy buena relación precio-servicio. Esperamos volver pronto y poder quedarnos más días. Muchas gracias y muchos éxitos más.

Annie and Matt, thank you for your great hospitality and for an incredible stay! We were visiting Valley of Dreams Eco Lodge with our three kids. We planned to stay over for one night but eventually came back for additional two nights. This place is surrounded with a lot of wildlife, waterfalls, local culture, and hiking trails. The apartments are lovely decorated and very comfortable and the pool was refreshing. This was definitely our favorite place in CR.
