We live on the property, and are available 24/7 if you need us. If you prefer your privacy you will have that.

We are both yoga instructors, willing to answer any questions you might have, but we certainly do not require your participation. We want all of our guests to feel like they have found their home away from home. We do our very best to ensure your comfort. We also do our best to make sure that our guests leave with lasting memories of the real Costa Rica.

Experience a window into tranquil, rural, agricultural, old Costa Rica, away from the tourist areas. People often smile and wave. Ser La Luz is on a quiet neighborhood road, surrounded by farmland. Access nature trails practically right outside our gate. The views will surprise and delight you.

At nearly 4700 feet elevation, our spring like temperatures give you an escape from the hot humid mosquito weather found at the beaches.

Park your vehicle inside our secure gate. Taxi service is available 24/7 with honest drivers, and costs about $10 US from here to downtown Grecia.

We are about 300 meters to reliable inexpensive public transportation. A bus runs to town every 30 minutes throughout the day.

We have a few fantastic private drivers available (at an additional fee) to take you on personalized excursions. We can arrange to have you picked up or delivered to the San Jose Airport for about $30 US plus modest tip.

Sheets, towels, toilet paper is provided. We even provide you with an handcrafted organic soap that can be used as a conditioning hair shampoo, made with simple natural ingredients in a coconut oil base.

There are two neighborhood stores, 20 and 300 meters away if you need staples, or other essentials.

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. We have a few local fantastic drivers available to take you to many locations. Most are bilingual.

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.

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 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

2nd time staying at this mountain getaway. Great place to come back to after a couple weeks of roaming around Costa Rica! Comfortable room, quiet location, gorgeous views, great hosts, and fresh fruit from their trees. What's not to like?!!

I own vacation rentals including one in Costa Rica, so I consider myself a pretty critical guest who notices details. Michael and Ed were awesome hosts, and their Ser La Luz retreat is really sweet! I stayed 2 nights while I recovered from dental surgery, and very much enjoyed the spacious & clean room, beautiful views of the volcano & valley, and their service. They arranged a driver to bring me from surgery, made smoothies for me, provided some aromatherapy, and otherwise did everything I could ask and more to make my stay great. I would highly recommend it to anyone seeking a quiet & health-conscious retreat in the Central Valley, and to workshop facilitators since their private indoor & outdoor spaces for group work are gorgeous. The only potential concern would be their 2 dogs and 2 cats for anyone allergic, but if you aren't allergic, even the roosters seemed friendly. From what I could see, they are also continuously improving the facilities, so future guests will only have it better. I would stay there again, and highly recommend it.

This location is in the mountains with a wonderful view of the Poas volcano. It is a nature lovers dream. It is away from town but there are buses and locals to act as taxis. Ed and Michael facilated to make sure we saw the sights. Healthy food, yoga, and hiking caused me to return home lighter and more fit. My friend was elated with the photo opportunities. I didn't want to leave.

I have stayed at several airbnbs and can say unhesitatingly that Michael and Ed were fantastic hosts. Everything was impeccably clean when we arrived. The most notable part of our experience is that they did everything they could and more to make us feel welcome and comfortable. Example one: They not only let us use the kitchen for cooking, but cleared out half the refrigerator so we could have space for our food (we eat in a lot); Example two: The nights are quite chilly here so they let us use a very high quality space heater which I am sure used a lot of electricity; Example three: I left a couple of things behind and they went out of their way to get them to me. The yoga studio is beautiful: again, one of the best I have ever seen. In addition they will let you take yoga classes from them without extra charge. The view from the very beautiful property - indeed a work of love - is as described which is outstanding with gorgeous sunsets too. The neighborhood, ten to fifteen minutes from the very plain town of Grecia, is quiet and nice to walk in. They do own some chickens so be prepared with earplugs for the early rooster wake-up calls. This is not a big deal though if you have lived in the country or are - haha - an early to bed early to rise person. I very much recommend this airbnb.

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.
