Finally, Open for Business!

As many of you know from following our blog, we have been journeying toward opening a B & B for close to 11 years. With the selling of our home in NC, moving to Costa Rica, learning the coffee business and building our home here, it has been a rather long voyage.  Although we are still a work in progress, and probably always will be, we are excited to open our home to travelers! People exploring Costa Rica who wish to experience the tranquility of Berlin, life on a coffee finca and breath taking vistas in every direction including the beautiful Nicoya Bay and the Pacific.  We are located in the Central Valley near San Ramon a little over 1 hour from the airport and many of the local tourist sites. Close enough for day trips but far enough away to offer a restful, tranquil environment.

Our B & B includes a Queen Size room with breakfast and the option for a family style dinner.  There is a hot tub available, hammocks and all kinds of fruit on the property including the coffee.

Today I would like to share our accommodations and a bit of our home.


As you follow our driveway (4 x 4 recommended), you will come upon our home and gardens sitting atop a hill at about 4,100 feet elevation.  We feel the elevation creates perfect weather with cool mornings and evenings and warm sunny days.  Although in the rainy season it is wetter, the daily temperatures are still quite warm.






You enter our home through the Bell Tower into either right to the hall to the Living Room or our Kitchen to the left.  The Bell Tower offers us air flow year round keeping us cooler in the dry season and dryer in the rainy season.









The Kitchen is well equipped and ready to feed hungry guests as well as ourselves.





This view of the kitchen also shows the Dining Area.








In the morning at breakfast you may be able to look out the window and see a rainbow at sunrise!








The Living Room is cozy and bright and a wonderful place to get a break from the heat or showers of the day and just relax.  Waiting for a meal or just visiting, you are always welcome here.







Just outside the Living/Dining area through the French Doors sits the hot tub and endless views of the ocean and surrounding hills and valleys.   At night the hills sparkle with lights from all the surrounding towns and villages and our corridor circles the house making outdoor living easy.







Every day is a different view







Sunsets are never the same and spectacular to see!















Hard to believe the photos are taken from approximately the same place at different times!












Now the Guest Room!  The room has a private entrance, a place to sit outside to enjoy the view and private Bath.





 The bed is queen sized and  the internet is available.







Windows with views on all sides and an armoire to hang your clothes.








 Entrance to the Bathroom.














Spacious bathroom and sink area.







Large open shower.
















Around the outside there are gardens to explore in addition to the coffee finca.









One more beautiful sunset reflecting off the Nicoya Bay!  For more information on our wonderful oasis, please contact us at:  sharonjrose@yahoo.com or 506.8431.6804 or 560.8481.4080.
We look forward to meeting you!  Pura Vida!

Hi Beth: It is the rainy season so the prices are good, however, some of the tourist areas are shut down. It nearing the end of the rainy season and October is the rainiest! "Normally", and I use the word loosely, it doesn't rain all day and the beaches tend to be much dryer even during rainy season. E-mail me if you wish more info: sharonjrose@yahoo.com Also, Pinterest is actually a great place to find information on Costa Rica! We'd love to see you anytime and promise we can keep you dry! :)
