The space
"It's the real Costa Rica. A perfect alternative to staying at some lifeless hotel."

Why stay in someone's spare room or a hotel by the airport when you can experience Costa Rica like a local by staying in a private park setting slurping coffee from one of the most exclusive coffee growing regions in the world!

Our clean and modern coffee-bar studio, unique estate grown coffee, immaculate gardens, expert advice, and close proximity to downtown San Jose makes the Coffee Ranch the best bang for your travel buck.

Enjoy our bush-to-cup coffee while strolling through a working boutique coffee ranch. Listen to birds chirp and the sound of a gentle river in our 2-acre meditation garden set in a coffee plantation with panoramic views of Irazu Volcano, the Tres Marias mountains of Braulio Carrillo National Park, as well as the city lights of San Jose. Enjoy our custom lookout platform with a 360-degree view.

Our tastefully decorated detached 300-square foot studio has a modern private bath, microwave, small refrigerator and coffee bar, and an expensive queen bed. Our gated, very secure 8-acre estate is located on the best street of the nicest small town in the San Jose Valley: Concepcion de San Isidro de Heredia. You are minutes away from small romantic restaurants, family restaurants and a trendy Italian eatery among many others.

Hi, I'm Phil and have been in Costa Rica for over 25 years. I can help you get the most of your entire Costa Rica vacation. You can expect expert advice on your travels, relocation and real estate needs. I have been very successful living and owning in Costa Rica.

Location ~ ~ We are located in the beautiful coffee hills of San Isidro de Heredia. Our neighborhood is one of the finest in Costa Rica with a mix of ex-patriots and Costa Ricans living on large estates and smaller homes. We are 30 minutes from the San Jose airport and the Museums of San Jose. Downtown Heredia with luxury malls and high-end restaurants is six miles away. Poas, Irazu and Barva volcanoes are an easy day trip away.

Village of San Isidro ~ ~ A $2 taxi ride away is the village of San Isidro with banks, a large supermarket with covered parking, restaurants and coffee shops bakeries and a beautiful Sunday morning farmer's market along with one of the most majestic churches in Costa Rica.

Coffee ~ ~ A rare treat - coffee harvested and dried in a truly artisanal old-world style. Our coffee fruit is sun dried for 100 days. Not sent to a mill to be strip washed and dried in mechanical dryers and later sent for processing in an automated warehouse. We pay our pickers double to harvest our coffee fruit at the peak of ripeness. The natural drying process triples production costs but leaves the raw beans coated with honey ready for roasting.

Restaurants ~ ~ A secret spot. Only a 5-minute ride away is Los Potreros with its city light views and a large variety of fantastic local dishes with generous portions at reasonable prices. Excellent food and good service. Another secret spot only ten minutes away is Sibu Chocolates where you can lunch and sample chocolate truffles made from Caribbean cocoa. They offer a lunch-included tour.

Transportation ~ ~ Our neighborhood Uber driver Jose takes you to your destination, wait for you there and then bring you home. Other Uber drivers do not do that. A local taxi to San Isidro is only $2 and arrive in minutes. Buses leave every 15 minutes to Heredia and San Jose, from where you can board direct buses to all parts of Costa Rica. The intentional airport is 30 minutes away.

Attractions ~ ~ La Paz Waterfall Gardens and Rain Forest Adventure zip lines are both easily doable day trips as well as Doka Estates Coffee Tour and Poas Volcano National Park and Braulio Carrillo National Park.

Guest access
You have access to over 3 acres of coffee and 500 feet of river frontage to enjoy. The coffee garden includes fruit trees and flowers, 8-foot tall old growth cypress hedges and over a quarter of a mile of rock paths. The lookout tower platform feature stunning panoramic views of the national park, and the San Jose Valley. The River View platform is 20 feet above the Tranqueras river where the sounds of nature come alive. The Garden View platform overlooks the coffee plantation and the peaks of the national Park. There are 12 benches scattered throughout the gardens for you to enjoy including a bench overlooking tranquil pools and waterfalls. There is also a rock labyrinth.

Other things to note
Uber, Waze and G maps are a must use here. We have great pets! Guests love playing with our friendly pooches Chester and our little mascot Roudel! La Paz Waterfall Gardens is a must see. My daughter's favorite zip lines at Rainforest Adventures are 40 minutes away. Both easily doable day trips. Poas Volcano is a beautiful place to spend the morning and about an hour away.

Concepcion de San Isidro, Heredia, Costa Rica

Staying with us gives you a chance to feel what it's like to live in the real Costa Rica. Our neighborhood is one of the finest in Costa Rica with a mix of ex-patriots and Costa Ricans living on large estates and smaller homes. The small town of San Isidro is 5 minutes away and has many conveniences such as a new large supermarket. You can walk up the street toward the National Park and if you are lucky you can see white face monkeys. The northeast part of the central valley is the first area to receive the prevailing Caribbean winds purified by miles of Braulio Carrillo National Park cloud forests bordering our neighborhood.

Hi I’m Phil. They call me Diego here in Costa Rica. I’m from San Diego, a native Californian, domestic and international Real Estate investor, who arrived in Costa Rica in 1990. My daughter Kalina and I own a beautiful 100-acre vineyard property in Temecula, and now a boutique coffee ranch in one of the most beautiful areas of Coffee Country Costa Rica. Our micro mill coffee farm processes coffee beans naturally by sun drying the coffee fruit. Running an Airbnb to meet travelers from many cultures, we serve them with tastefully decorated rooms, hot showers and comfortable beds. I write self-help titles with a kung fu slant, and little-by-little built our coffee ranch from an abandoned coffee field with just a master carpenter, a crew and my sketch pad. Our gardens are a work of love and nature. Beautiful views abound! Meditation is a primary activity learned from two decades in Self Realization Fellowship. Come find yourself on one of our many meditation benches slurping bush to cup coffee while overlooking a waterfall among coffee plants, old growth cypress hedges, flower and fruits. As the author of Costa Rica Now / Travel Live and Own in Paradise, with decades of in-country experience, I’ll help you get the MOST OUT OF YOUR VACATION by recommending where to visit according to what you want to do, and the time of the year. Pura Vida!!! See you in Costa Rica!!!
