It is not an exaggeration to say that Casi el Cielo ("Almost Heaven") is truly a vacationer's paradise. We've stayed in many wonderful places around the world, but none so welcoming, lovely, and comfortable as Casi el Cielo. Located in the breathtakingly beautiful Southern Pacific zone of Costa Rica, Casi el Cielo is owned and operated by Barbara Kocak, a woman of amazing ability, charm, and warmth. Barbara conceived and designed Casi el Cielo, which is a villa consisting of 4 guest rooms, each with a different theme and all with private baths and patios overlooking the water. Guests also have access to the common areas of the house, including a large terrace with a sweeping view of the Pacific. On the grounds, there is a good-sized swimming pool set amidst dazzling landscaping. Two meals, breakfast and dinner, are provided, along with early morning coffee service. The meals, served on the terrace, are fabulous, with something new each day to taste and savor. Barbara's staff is amazing as well, and very patient with those of us trying to learn Spanish! In addition to everything else, Barbara provides all sorts of welcome assistance to her guests -- arranging for tours, planning for special events, and just plain answering any and all questions.
All in all, a perfect blend of comfort and serenity, without a hint of pretentiousness. We cannot imagine staying anywhere closer to heaven than Casi el Cielo.
