My husband and I spent about a week with William and Angie at the Hobbit Cottage. Our stay here was one of the best experiences we have had at Airbnb (and we've stayed at a lot of places over the years). Firstly, the cabin itself is fantastic. It is a hand-made cob construction with a very well thought out layout....

Management response:

Thank you Magdalena and Jan, You are so kind. He look forward to more stories and laughs. It was great having you, more than guest, we are friends! Cheers, William and Angie

Enjoyed our one night stay at this gorgeous property. The cottage was clean and spacious with everything we needed. Our wonderful hosts provided a lovely pancake breakfast and are a wealth of knowledge regarding the area and places to visit. It was such a treat to start our vacation off at the cottage. Cheers from Canada.

Management response:

Cheers to our Canadian guest. Thank you for enjoying our Cottage.

About the neighbourhood
At 400 meters above sea level, our temperatures are rather constant as is the amount of sunlight per day, i.e. 12-hours light, and 12-hours dark. We usually have breezes that can sometimes become heavy winds, hence the nearby Wind Turbines generating electricity for the National Grid. Also nearby are the Thermal Electric Generators, using steam from deep beneath the Volcano to run turbines at the generating stations.
Nicaragua is only about 60-Km north and Lake Arenal is an hour to the east.

From Liberia drive east about 23-Km on the new Pan American Freeway to Bagaces.
Take the Bagaces Off Ramp.Turn left, go through town to Hwy 164. If you are coming north on the Pan American Hwy, Take Bagaces Off Ramp, turn right at the last street before the On Ramp back to the freeway, go through town to Hwy 164. and continue north 15-Km towards Guayabo de Bagaces. Do NOT turn right at the 'Y' turn off, Km-14, to Fortuna de Bagaces.

Look for a landscaped frontage on the left with a long rock wall, just 1-Km north of the turn off to Fortuna de Bagaces. There is a large sign up on a tree that says 'Los Arboles' and also a sign advertising our Real Estate Service. If you set your odometer to '0' in Bagaces, then note when you get to '15'.......you are ther...
