This is the perfect place to be if you feel like being surrounded by beauty and still close enough to enjoy all the area has to offer. Half the time, we didn't want to leave! The property and home are beautiful and our hosts were available and willing to help us with anything we needed, which was awesome! The meals prepared by Rosie and Paul were AMAZING and we really enjoyed getting to know the family. This was definitely a highlight of our trip!
Casa Cielo is a beautiful home and perfect place to stay while visiting the Arenal area. The house has everything you need to make your stay enjoyable, from the open air bar upstairs to the wonderful outdoor living area and pool. It is remote enough to feel like you are in your own private world but close enough to travel to all area sites and attractions. Paul and Rosy were wonderful hosts and made us feel right at home. The breakfasts served poolside were delicious and a great way to start each day. We had dinner at the property on our last evening and wished we had dined there every evening! Paul booked our Sky Trek adventure and was always helpful in providing us with maps and information regarding the surrounding area as well as providing us ideas for our stay at the beach. If you are looking for a place to stay, look no further......Casa Cielo is the perfect place to stay. Pura Vida!
Really enjoyed Casa Cielo - Paul and Rosy are great hosts. Highly recommend having them cook dinner a few times as it's nice to come home after a long day and not worry about heading back out for meals or cooking. The place is beautiful, very clean and well maintained.
The location is a bit remote and the roads are not the best but we had no problems getting there. La Fortuna is relatively close. Paul gave us some great tips and made some reservations - we did the Hanging Bridges guided tour - excellent. Adventura Mundo Arenal - zip lines - fantastic. Hiked to the waterfall in La Fortuna, Hiked to Cerro Chato, road side hot springs. A great area, great house! Can't forget Junior, we all fell in love with the family dog.
Casa Cielo is truly heaven on earth! From the moment we arrived, my family and I felt instantly at home. The house is beautiful, clean and spacious. We spent a lot of time outside by the pool. The backyard is so peaceful with a waterfall and ample bird watching opportunities. Every morning we enjoyed a delicious homemade breakfast with coffee, fresh fruit and juice. We had two dinners at Casa Cielo. Both were incredible! Our family has several food allergies (nuts and gluten). Paul and Rosie managed to make all of our meals allergy-free, including a nut-free/gluten-free birthday cake!
The house is in a great location. It's a short drive to La Fortuna, Arenal, and The Springs. Paul gives great directions and is always around to answer questions. He even arranged a special visit to a private butterfly farm run buy a wonderful woman. This is not on any tourist itinerary. It was a truly unique and authentic Costa Rica experience. We loved every minute of our stay at Casa Cielo and cannot wait to return!
From the time you arrive, Paul makes you feel as part of his family. Spectacular food, extremely clean, gorgeous view, no lack of advice on what to do and what not to do. His wife, kids and dog (junior) are all great. Excellent value and no problem recommending,
