“Fabulous house with great amenities in a fantastic location.”
Reviewed 9 April 2017 for a stay in June 2016

What a fantastic location down the road from Manuel Antonio National Park and great beaches. The house and adjoining apartments is more than enough space for six couples or 12 people. The pool and deck are fabulous and the kitchen has everything you need. The washer and dryer are a huge plus. The caretaker lives right next door and is always at your service.

Restaurants are within walking distance or a short cab ride away and there are some excellent ones.

We will be back!!!

“You can stop searching for a house now!”

From the first time I spoke to the Owner of Casa Cielo (Laya) over the phone our group of 13 was being well taken care of. Planning a trip can be stressful, but not when you stay at Casa Cielo - They took care of everything, and then some! Damien and his wife Andy live right next door and they are possibly the nicest people you'll ever meet. They speak both Spanish and English and made our stay unforgettable by handling every detail for us ... down to calling our cabs for us.

The house is simply stunning, just as you see in the pictures. It was perfect for all of us to gather in the main house and common areas, but the individual apartments allowed for plenty of privacy as well. The Wi-Fi is a little spotty in the area, but a hotspot is all you need if you need to get work done while you're visiting. We were visited by 3 types of monkeys during our stay: titi, white faced, and Congo. The Titis ate bananas from our hands and a few of them even hopped into our laps. Every day we saw Parrots and Toucans and other pretty birds on the property.

You MUST take advantage of the Chef services at least twice during your stay. You will not be sorry - I don't think I'm lying when I say that it was the best food I've ever eaten. We had Chef Francini and her husband Cornelius. Not only are they amazing cooks but they are really FUN! The grounds keeper and the house keeper were super sweet as well and took great care of us.

Transportation was not a problem, we did take the bus a couple of times as the bus stop is just at the end of the short street that the house is on. Right next door to the house is a little hotel (that you won't even know is there - it's very quiet) and we were able to enjoy delicious Pina Colodas every night. The National park, beaches, boating, and shopping are very close to the house... we were never in a cab longer than 7 minutes for local rides. Well if you're still with me, I hope this review was helpful. Again I can't say enough about our stay here and highly recommend that you stay here too.

We had a large group with several school age children. The house was perfect! We had the common areas of the kitchen, den, balcony and pool to gather around as a group, but then our own private areas as well.

I stayed at Casa Cielo with a group of 20 people, including children. The house was beautiful- modern, clean, and fits a lot of people! Each bedroom had a bathroom with hot water and all were very spacious, kept clean by daily maid service. Outside space is also ample, with a pool, large balcony, huge terrace, and even a gazebo with a grill. There is wifi, kitchen and cooking appliances. A short walk to a bus stop, which takes you to the beach or one of the many nearby restaurants. The caretaker lived next door and was happy to provide help for finding excursions and transportation for our large group. The owner is extremely nice, speaks both English and Spanish. Overall, an amazing house to stay at with great service.

“Casa Cielo aka Rainforest Paradise”
Reviewed 26 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This was the nicest house i have ever gotten to sleep in 100%. The view from the deck on the pool looking up at the house was breath taking, but turn around and look out at the beautiful trees and fauna growing on the side of the mountains and its hard to decide which way to keep looking.The main house was so big and well decorated, some of the nicest furniture i ever sat on, and the kitchen was just as nice.The suite room (where we stayed in) was great equipped with their own kitchen, refrigerator, bathroom, closet, safe, and big bed room. All 3 apartments have a bedroom, living room, kitchen, and amazing back porch. They were equipped with their own AC units. Each bathroom has hot running water, which is a luxury in CR. The pool and deck area was by far the best part of this house though. The deck is huge and equipped with a top of the line grill and the pool is a pristine oasis fit for rain forest royalty. The house is right across the street from the bus stop (or a popular taxi spot if that's more your style) so getting to the beach is a breeze 5-15 min. The Manuel Antonio beach is so great for surfing also GREAT.

We were lucky enough to go on a trip and meet and stay with the owners and they were the SO NICE AND FUN. They made everyday an adventure helping us with advice on spots to check out, company's to book tours with, and the best restaurants to eat at. Laya made sure everything was spot on at the house and booking adventures and Del is a pretty good surfer. Also they have the two nicest little boys, there so funny. Not to mention Damion (Resident Manger) made sure you have everything you could need during your stay.
I would highly recommend this house to anyone looking to stay in the Manuel Antonio/Quepos Area. It is a beautiful, modern, relaxing, house in paradise.

“Great House”
Reviewed 15 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

I just completed my stay at Casa Cielo. I went with my wife, and kids age 9/11. I also brought 4 members of my wifes family and 2 of my own, for a total of ten people. The house had plenty of room for 10, we could have fit 12 easily, more if you wanted couch surfers. The layout is 2 bedrooms in the main house along with an additional bedroom under the main house, along with 3 fully independent bedroom/living room/kitchenette units directly across the patio by the pool. The pool is smaller but had plenty of room for my kids to play in and I found it enjoyable. The house is very clean, the AC covers the whole house and we found everything in good order.

The location of the house is on the main road heading from Quepos towards the entrance of Manuel Antonio. It is a highly convenient location, and had several restaurants/bars within walking distance, a short drive to the beach. Also ideally located for going on any adventure tours in the area as its close to iguana tours and most of the big tour companies.

The main selling point of the house for us was it was extremely private, in great condition and most importantly was surrounded by wildlife. During our stay we saw monkeys, parrots, frogs, lizards, butterflies, humming birds, toucans and many other birds we did not know. One morning nearly 40 squirrel monkeys descended on the property to the delight of everyone but especially my kids. It was amazing to sit on the porch with a glass of wine and watch parrots/toucans/humming birds fly by. The only downside is the animals can make noise but if this bothers you Costa Rica probably isn't for you.

On another note, we were able to meet the owner of the property who happened to be there, she is american and very legitimate, I had never rented a home before so I was apprehensive about getting ripped off somehow, but I assure you we got everything we paid for here. Additionally the house manager lives next door, so any problems/help we needed he was able to respond instantly. They also had a delightful housekeeper that cleaned up each morning and washed our clothes.

If you are considering a trip to the Manuel Antonio area, I would strongly recommend Casa Cielo.

“Perfect for our Wedding Reception”
Reviewed 14 March 2015 for a stay in November 2014

This villa is beautiful, spacious, and in a great location.

Damian, the concierge, was great and always assisting with everything we needed from dinner reservations, taxis, to excursions and recommendations.

As we had a small wedding in Manuel Antonio we'd decided to have the reception at the house which ended up being a great choice. The property lends itself surprisingly well to that type of occasion with plenty of room for dinner, dancing, and live music.

Our entire experience at Casa Cielo was amazing. From nearly daily visits from the squirrel monkeys, to hanging out by the pool late night, it's the perfect place to come "home" to after enjoying all the activities Manuel Antonio has to offer.

It was soooo touching and beyond beautiful! The look of happiness on everyone's faces really shows the celebration and love shared by everyone in your family/group. We would love to have you back again at Casa Cielo anytime! The entire staff enjoyed taking care of your family!
