Step inside and you are taken by the beautiful spiral stairs leading to the jungle room. A sleeping and gathering room up in the canopy that has a 360% view of the ocean and jungle and is always blessed by cool breezes. The main floor is living room with an open kitchen , the main bath,with funky art mosaic tilework and a nice tub. A queen bedroom (with a twin if needed), a long and comfortable ocean view covered porch with sleeping cubby. another twin spot. At the far end of the main porch, the staircase down to the master suite drops down to the spacious downstairs master suite with king bed, private covered deck with jungle and ocean vistas, ocean view bathroom with elegant stone surround and glass ocean view shower wall..
A stay at CieloMar is truly enchanting. It will be a once in a lifetime adventure for your family and friends and I consider it my honor to have you share my Almost Eden for a time...!Thanks Kerry
If renting a car in Costa Rica to get here rent a FOUR WHEEL DRIVE. My hill is steep and slick if rainy. The rest of the country is also steep and slick when rainy. It may cost a few extra dollars but will provide you with access to many places(including a lot of the parks) you could not easily get to otherwise.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.
Paying with a credit card on VRBO protects your payment for up to $10,000 against listing fraud. We recommend completing your booking on VRBO.Learn more

About the owner: Howdy! I am Kerry McCracken.Welcome to Cielomar. Mi Casa Es Su Casa!! I hope you find your stay here magical and enchanting and you carry home a memory of a lifetime. Heres a little about me. I am a native of Arizona,where I still live and work. I have been a Real Estate Broker in Arizona for many years, selling primarily ranches and land. I am now working on building alternative,sustainable ling projects and still occasionally selling property. I am working on a desert paradise here in Arizona trying to make it 100% solar and completely sustainable.As this project takes much time I am rarely down at Cielomar but am always enthralled when I get to stay there... and am grateful to share the magical experience I find CieloMar and the Lost World Preserve to be with you.. The rents support the preservation of the property .My real purpose has been to save as much critical habitat there as possible. Who doesn't like monkeys??Develpoment has crowded out their space and it is imperative that some of us care enough to preserve,as most lands there are private.The stewardship of this rare forest has been an experiment in private conservation for me. And to all those who have helped build and maintain the preserve my thanks go out to them.!!! Blessings Kerry
Why the Owner Chose Limón Province, Costa Rica:
Cielomar is the rarest and most spectacular wildlife watching retreat I have seen over many years in Costa Rica. It is a delight for animal lovers,and birders throughout the world. We are walking distance to the beaches yet worlds away in our secluded mountaintop lodge..A trip to town is fast and easy, with all local attractions readily available. Then come home to Cielomar and retreat to complete seclusion above the beach community. Come.gaze at the Caribbean ,birdwatch from the pool and hike through th last ancient primary forests.s..
The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
Most enchanting ocean view on the Caribe. cool breezes on our ridge make us five degrees cooler then the beach below!!! Overlooking the canyons of our preserve, you will find our wildlife viewing is as fine as the national parks,without the crowd. Birdwatch from the upstairs jungle room at the house, see monkeys play by the pool., or venture into the jungle on our cleared paths to see the shyer denizens of the rainforest. We are l close to the beach and village of Playa Chiquita.(.1/2 mile) and not far from town,yet we are secluded in our own jungle world. The cool pool could not be prettier or more refreshing and the house is full of artsy splashes and whimsical touches The views of the ocean and the canyons amaze and inspire the imagination. You will be forever enchanted!
