» Take a Virtual Tour of the Bamboo House and guest house


In 2009, the Bamboo House, an architectural wonder, was built using alternative building methods and natural materials. Soaring bamboo ceilings lead up to a central skylight, and seeing the moon through the skylight in the center of the room is something special.  There are windows on every side to view the hummingbirds, banana trees, and natural surroundings. Guests are always in awe of the serenity and natural beauty of the house and surrounding gardens. It has 9 years of successful rental history.

The Bamboo house is set in the center of the working coffee farm. Very private and peaceful. It is solar-powered as is the entire farm. The house has spectacular views of Poas volcano and the Central Valley. You will enjoy just walking on the property and strolling down to the river. Imagine the morning enjoying freshly roasted coffee while sitting on the deck listening to song birds and watching butterflies. The farm is conveniently located near many surrounding artisan towns that provide plenty of potential day trips.

A separate modern guest house sits adjacent to the Bamboo House and is perfect for a second couple or children. The property also includes a 2 bedroom, 1 bath house with separate gated driveway. There is also a Carport with locked storage.  All farm machinery, equipment, tools, furniture, and appliances are negotiable.

The boutique coffee consists of varieties resistant to climate change and the coffee has always been highly reviewed in local coffee cuppings. The owners have planted hundreds of trees; fruit, banana and others.

Our Vision

We had the dream of establishing a self-sustaining organic farm and sanctuary for our guests. So we bought an old coffee farm on the slopes of Poas Volcano. The first thing we did was plant trees … lots of trees: bananas, citrus, Poros and other shade trees to serve as shade and compost for the coffee plants. Initially, we did not realize the impact of our decision.

Every morning, we wake up to butterflies around the bamboo house. Like the amazing Blue Morpho.

 

 

Our Coffee Farm – Natural Sustainable Building

Beginning the Bamboo House

We are committed to the process of building responsibly and sustainably. In 2009, we started construction on the bamboo house. We came up with the idea of a simple octagon design so we could view the beautiful landscape in every direction.

Building with bamboo is an excellent renewable resource. It re-grows rapidly which can avoid future deforestation of our precious tropical rainforests. Bamboo easily exceeds timber fibers or mild steel in tensile strength. It also absorbs energy and makes it a great product for seismic-resistant constructions.

We were lucky to find Martin Coto, an expert world renowned bamboo builder. Along with our Architect, Rodrigo Torres, they turned our vision into reality. Bamboo serve as the skeleton and support of the structure. The walls are created using a lattice structure that supports the mud. The mud from the property is applied to the lattice structure and eventually plastered with green coloring.

Solar Power

Part of our vision is to be off grid so, we went with solar for electricity and a combination of solar hot water and on-demand propane hot water. We have learned a lot about energy conservation because we do have to consider how much energy are used by light bulbs, computers, etc.
