Michael from VICTORIA, Canada said

We were so fortunate to meet this wonderful family during the first part of our stay in Costa Rica. But even before we arrived there, Corinne was incredibly helpful in planning our trip/exchange to CR with all kinds of tips, suggestions & recommendations. Once we arrived, they immediately treated us as though we were part of the family, making all of us feel so welcome into their home...and WHAT a home! Casa Mariposa still defies all of our attempts to capture it in words...and pictures for that matter. It is more than we could have ever hoped for, and with all the room for the 2 families to have dinner around the table with the rain forest just inches away, it was truly a surreal experience.As if that were not enough, their back yard was rather impressive as well! The stunning scenery, the waterfalls/swimming holes, the butterflies and birds...as amazing as the pictures are, they are a pale reflection of actually being there! This exchange was EXACTLY the reason we chose to join this site; the fact that we were able to meet this family was an incredible bonus. If you ever have the opportunity to exchange with them, do not miss the chance. Thanks again for everything. :)

What we said about Michael's house:

We had a hospitality exchange with this family and highly recommend them. They were respectful, and easy to have as guests. Out of a scale of 10, I would give them a perfect score.
