Our Costa Rican next door neighbors have a family dairy farm. They sell milk an hour from their dozen pampered cows, or eggs from their couple dozen chickens.

Fruit based breakfast with or without mountain grown rich Costa Rican coffee is the only meal we include, but other family-style meals possible on request, for additional fee.

We can also arrange exciting excursions for you, fees vary according to destination. In addition to what has been already noted, choose from zip lining, coffee or sugar plantation tours, or animal rescue preserves.

Grecia has a variety of restaurants from authentic Tico 'typical' style to more USA style for your dining enjoyment. There are a few "vegan" and "vegetarian" choices near by. A restaurant or two will deliver for about $1.00 US.

Friday afternoon and evenings, Grecia's Feria (farmers market), offers an outstanding selection of local produce, home-made crafted foods, all in a friendly, festive atmosphere.

We are about an hour away from the San Jose International Airport and 45 minutes away from the Poas Volcano (2nd largest ACTIVE crater in the world). Many people feel the La Paz Waterfall Gardens is a 'must see', and is maybe 40 minutes away.

Our location near the geographic center of the county makes it easy for folks to stop here before or after traveling to the farther destinations. Our proximity to the San Jose Airport allows folks to spend their first or last night or two relaxing before the next leg of their journey.

Wir verbrachten unsere letzten zwei Nächte bei Michael und Ed. Wir wurden sehr nett und offen empfangen und beide gaben uns viele Tips. Die Unterkunft ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet und man hat einen wunderbaren Ausblick. Wir waren herzlich eingeladen am Yoga teilzunehmen. (Ed ist ein sehr guter Yoga Lehrer!) Es hat uns sehr viel Spaß gemacht. Ebenso die Hot-Tube haben wir sehr genossen. Das Anwesen von Michael und Ed ist eine kleine Oase. Wir haben uns sehr wohl dort gefühlt. Absolut zu empfehlen. Thank you Michael& Ed!!!!

We stayed three nights at Ser La Luz and loved every minute. The home is beautiful, great views of the mountains and valley below. The hot tub at night was a real treat. But I must say that spending a little time with our hosts Michael and Ed and their friends was the highlight. The first night they invited us to join them and some ex-pat friends for dinner and the next day hooked us up with others who do a long morniing hike! Ed's yoga class was also a treat, he is a real master and the atmosphere lends the perfect touch!! I recommend this place for not only a personal trip but for their retreats as well. Pure Vida!!

This place is the perfect to unplug and relax. With a beautiful view of the "campo" and on a clear day Poas Volcano, we couldn't have asked for a better weekend. There is Netflix (although sometimes the internet wasn't good enough to work it), a hot tub (sooo relaxing), and even though we didn't take advantage of the yoga room, this place definitely creates the environment of holistic living. There is also a beautiful walking trail through coffee fields near the property. The hosts were wonderful and thorough in explaining the room and the area, and even let us check in early! I highly recommend this place, and hope to be back soon!

If you want to see a lush green valley up in the clouds this is your place. You will love the personal service and attention to detail. We had a fantastic stay with great food and company! Our room had spectacular views and sounds of nature!

First off, the location is fantastic - close enough but far enough away that you really get to enjoy the beauty of Costa Rica's mountains. Their view is breathtaking! Mike and Ed are incredibly hospitable. This was my first travel to Costa Rica, and outside of the US, and alone, and they made my travel so relaxing and easygoing! The yoga they offer is fantastic and you get to meet some of the locals, as well as any other events they may have going on at their abode while you are there. Everyone I met was fantastic, positive, good energy folk. I also had family-style dinner with them a few evenings and completely enjoyed it, learning about their experiences and lives. All in all, I must say that I must come back to visit them and Ser la Luz. What they have created is paradise within paradise itself, Costa Rica. Thank you, Mike and Ed!

If you are planning your Costa Rican tour, this is a must stop. With a stellar view of volcano Barvo and the lush valley below, his quintessential retreat is perfectly laid out for guests to relax, enjoy plenty of private space as well as nature, and even participate in one of Ed's yoga classes. Ed & Michael were more than accommodating, making sure we knew where we were going, and offered excellent choices of local inexpensive restaurants. The suite was bright, airy, comfortable bed, excellent hot water pressure, a mini fridge as well as coffee pot, and for those needing TV, the suite even has Netflix. Strong wifi made it easy to 'stay connected' anywhere on the estate. At night, the refreshing clean air was only surpassed by a beautiful star lite sky and the sound of the river below ( how perfect ). They even made sure it was identifyied on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) earth so GPS was able to pin-point the exact location. We highly recommend Mountain View Getaway, as it is exactly as described. We started our Costa Rica tour here and we loved it so much, we may try to return before ending our tour. SURPASSED EXPECTATIONS !!! Jeff - Tampa Florida USA & Delfin - Caracas Venezuela

Ser La Luz is a family run boutique bed & breakfast. My partner Ed and I are Yoga instructors now living in San Francisco, San Isidro De Grecia, Alajuela, Costa Rica. Michael is originally from Rhode Island but lived for 27 years in the Tampa, Florida area. Ed lived in the San Francisco California area for many years and 4 years in Dover, Florida.

We have set up our amazing home to be a Yoga retreat center and a B&B. Totally private fenced in yard with our own mini orchard out back, an amazing view of the Poas Volcano and the valley below. Love looking at the stars at night? Not a problem with our clear skies. We have 2 dogs, 2 cats and currently 8 chickens and 1 rooster.

This is traditional farm country where we are and it's amazing. We have created our own sanctuary and look forward to sharing it with you. Besides our orchard we have herb gardens and vegetable gardens throughout the property.

Stay with us and join us for fires in the back yard when weather permits. On weekends you can join us for Movie Night outside when weather permits. We treat you like family, because to us you already are.

Life is to short to not take an adventure. This is why in 2015 we decided to move to Costa Rica to start a new life and to enjoy an amazing adventure. We enjoy sharing it with others either through visiting us in person or through our online presence.
