Our family of 3 generations wanted a special place to celebrate a 70th birthday, with a lot of relaxation and private family time. Casa Cielo was just perfect for us, the location was far enough from the hustle and bustle but close enough to drive to excursions. Our hosts Paul and Rosy provided us with everything we needed. From the delicious poolside breakfasts to tour planning and home cooked dinners, we felt like we had friends to lean on the whole time. Paul planned the most amazing day for our 3 year old daughter at the local butterfly farm and a dairy farm. Every time we left for the day, the house was tidied up and we were never short of towels or any amenities. It was beautiful to come back to the house and dip in the refreshing pool. In the morning, forget your alarm clocks. Wake up to the sound of birds coming to the several bird feeders on the property. Eat breakfast and watch butterflies hatch out of their cocoons. Lounge in the hammock with a cup of Costa Rican coffee looking at the picture perfect view of the Arenal volcano. It's been over two weeks since we left Casa Cielo and we still miss it everyday. We will be back!
I stayed at Casa Cielo together with my husband and 2 other couples. We are world travelers and very selective as to were we stay as well as food. And I can tell you from the moment we reserved Casa Cielo to when we left Paul and his wife were all attentions. They purchase groceries and prepare a brick oven super fresh pizza night for our welcome dinner(you can order all types of food and drinks, Margaritas by the Jar to die for...). THey arrange for us a private birdwatching tour with a tour guide and we could even order to them to prepare a cooler with food so we could enjoy the full birdwatching trip. Another day we requested massage services and again they were perfect . The only thing is stay a week, when we left we wanted to stay longer. So whenever you are in the Arenal area go to Casa Cielo. Perfect view of Arenal Volcano and the pool perfect after a day of rafting and activities. We never went to eat elsewere. Every morning during breakfast which is delicious we order our dinner and drinks to be ready at 7:00pm by the pool.
Spent four nights at this lovely oasis at the top of a mountain. Paul and Rosy couldn't have been more gracious and wonderful hosts. It felt like staying with friends. The meals were amazing. Our three teenage daughters are begging us to return next year. I'm not the type of person who writes reviews, but this genuinely exceeded all expectations.
Perfection from beginning to end. Thanks so much to Paul, Rosy and family for their superlative hospitality with peace and privacy. From the easy and informative booking process, to waking up to tai chi and coffee with hummingbirds and volcano views from the main suite balcony kitchen, to tailored private day trips all organized whatever the fancy whether adventure, waterfalls or romance, to relaxing by the private pool with massages or a glass of wine and last but not least, to the fabulous feasts for breakfast or dinner which spoilt us beyond compare. We regularly reminisce two months after the dream about the amazing experience of Casa Cielo. Do not hesitate and we hope to come back one day again. Thank you again
Casa Cielo, in Monterrey Costa Rica is close to The Arenal Volcano and the town of La Fortuna. It is near most of the best places to visit in the region. BUT, the best part, is that it is gorgeous here....immaculate, romantic, private, magical and run by the nicest, most accommodating couple who tended to our every need! You would be crazy to stay anywhere but here! 4 of us stayed here for 1 week and can't wait to go back.
