A safe space...

Come to magical Costa Rica and be inspired and renewed!

Now is the time to schedule your residency.

Strengthen your mind, body and spirit by immersing yourself in nature. Let the clean water, air and sunshine be your medicine.

Our Eco-Conscious Artist Residency is the perfect place for all types of nature loving artists to come get healthy and be creative.

The Residency is a luxurious 6,000 sq. ft. Spanish Villa that sits on 1.5 acres of land. It is located within a small community in the mountains. Surrounding us is the jungle, breathtaking views, and miles of dirt roads and trails to meander, run or hike, and explore. There is a family owned restaurant, Mirador Donde Andrés with delicious food a 20 minute walk away.

The program focuses on furnishing artists with healthy gourmet delicious vegetarian meals (breakfast and dinner 5 days a week with ingredients that are either grown on site or locally and sustainably sourced), comfortable and beautiful accommodations, ample work space and serene surroundings so that individual or group projects can can flourish.

You will be surrounded by dozens of different species of birds, butterflies, insects, flowers and plants. It is common to have toucans, scarlet macaws, monkeys, coatis, and sloths pass through. There is a stream that runs through the lower half of the property.

We are blessed with phenomenal sunrises and sunsets and marvelous natural light all day.

Our yard is filled with edible fruits like plantains, papayas, and lemons. We have a working greenhouse and grow produce and herbs on site. You can help yourself! We have lemongrass, mint, stevia, holy and purple basil to name a few. 

Heather, our on-site artist and EcoHouse Coordinator welcomes and delights in giving tours of the property's sustainable features, including the medicinal and tropical plants.

There is a library of books at the Residency to learn about permaculture, sustainability, and Costa Rican wildlife and plants.
