“Beauty, comfort, and care”

The house sits, surrounded by green, perched on a ridge overlooking Arenal. The view from the 2nd floor sitting room (complete with bar) across the valley is exquisite. Breakfast by the pool is interrupted by flocks of parakeets fighting over fruit and visits by a dozen (more?) other kinds of birds.

But it isn't just the natural beauty - the house, Casa Cielo itself, is a work of art. It features hand-made wood furniture, polished concrete counters, a one-of-a-kind pizza oven (check the picture), and thoughtful lighting throughout.

We were a two-family group of 9, including 5 teenagers who took over the top floor. We were joined by another family for a couple of dinners. We all loved our visit with Paul, Rosie, and their kids. The house was great. We enjoyed dinners prepared by Paul & Rosie as well as breakfast every morning. They also gave good guidance on activities and adventures.

We spent time at The Springs Resort on a 2-day-pass, dined in La Fortuna, hiked in the cloud forest, and sipped cocktails by the pool.

A great time and highly recommended!

“Costa Rica Casa Away from Home”
Reviewed 4 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

people found this review helpful

Our four night stay at Casa Cielo was the highlight of our trip to Costa Rica. The house is brand new, clean, very spacious for our family of four, and offers spectacular views of the Arenal Volcano and surrounding countryside. The best part of our stay was our gracious host family, Paul and Rosibel, who are wonderful company and made us feel right at home. They went out of their way to make our stay memorable, including delicious breakfasts by the swimming pool and two marvelous dinners, one of which was a multi-course feast on Christmas Eve. Paul can arrange tours, and the guides we had were very personable and knowledgeable about the wildlife, birds and plants that we encountered. We have travelled to many places and our stay at Casa Cielo is one of our highlights.
