Private feedback from Tricia, "Phil I just wanted to thank you for my wonderful stay at your place... I’m glad that I went with my instinct and chose your place because you set the standard for Airbnb in my book..." Thank you for the eloquent review. You also set the standard for being a generous guest with the tip you left the housekeeper and you even gave her your shoes! She was so happy. Fredy the gardner spoke highly of you as well. For me, guests like you make hosting worth it. You were far from the "docking you a star because the toaster was old" nit-picking type who are better off staying at a hotel rather than soaking up the local culture as you did. You are Pura Vida my dear. Thank you from all of us.

AMAZING place. My husband and I stayed here for the first two nights of our honeymoon and it was lovely. The space is clean and spacious with amazing views off the front porch of San Isidro and San Jose further in the distance. The grounds are stunning. Phil is very friendly and …

Save yourself a headache- don't go. Although it was advertised as "working farm" we did not notice much action... not a big deal, but we were woken up by people walking on s cone floor at 7AM!!! who were doing repairs. Unacceptable.. they were also drilling right by our window…

Guest was obviously upset before she even entered the room. We have had no issues with other guests regarding furniture or cleanliness. We would hope that guests would communicate any issues so they can be addressed and corrected if needed, rather than later ranting about it. At times, if vacations do not go smoothly a guest faults the host. This review appears to stem not from being woken up, rather than from waking up on the wrong side of the bed (a vacation gone badly).

We stayed at Phil’s the night before flying out of San Jose. A great location to spend our last night and so nice to walk around the grounds of his coffee plantation. Phil provided loads of local tips and the location meant we had time to go to the nearby Toucan Rescue Centre bef…

"Would highly recommend for a place near to San Jose but far enough out to be quiet and peaceful." Thank you Tom - Pura Vida!

This is the second stay I've had at Phil's place and it was absolutely lovely once again. Unfortunately, we were a bit late checking in and had to leave early so we didn't get sufficient time to enjoy the meditation garden - but trust me, that alone is worth staying. This place i…

Thank you Miranda for coming back and thank you for the kind review. I apologize about the goof up on the towels. There are usually two hanging and two in the closet. Uff!

We had a great time staying in Phil's home. His garden and backyard are BEAUTIFUL and the views from the porch are just stunning. It's a perfect place to relax after a busy day exploring San Jose. Having the kitchen to use is a great plus to prepare a quick breakfast or small din…
