We picked an Amazing home for our first time in Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

This was a family of 5 adults on a first time visit to Costa Rica and we were not disappointed in our choice of staying at Casa en El Cielo. We stayed mid March 2018 for 16 fantastic nights and really would have loved to stay much longer! Prior to arriving any questions we had the owner Jamie was very prompt and thorough with his answers. He looked after lining up our rental vehicle which was great and much appreciated. I would highly recommend renting a vehicle as it really allows you to explore the region and is a great convenience to go at your own pace and do what ever you want to do. Driving in Guanacaste region we found was fairly easy and by the end of our stay were very comfortable with getting around in the area. We put on a lot of miles and thoroughly loved the area. We had nothing but sunshine the entire time. The information package was excellent and was very helpful and we had no problem at all upon our arrival. The Zindis Group property management staff member met us at their office and then took us onto the home which is just a short drive. They were very welcoming as well as full of information which was most helpful. Showed us all around the home and all the ins and outs which was again very helpful. They also checked up and came by the house a week later just to make sure all was well and if we had any questions or concerns so we felt very looked after. On our arrival the home was spotlessly clean and we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful setting. The home is beautifully decorated and the artwork is amazing. Kitchen is outfitted with everything a person can think of and everything was in top shape working order. The beds were most comfortable and we all had great sleeps. The pool was lots of fun and a blessing as it was around 38C daily. The patio furniture was excellent and very comfortable and we spent many hours looking out over the countryside. As this is their dry time of the season a lot of the trees are dormant and lost their leaves and the hills are very dry. I would love to see the area in the rainy season as everything would be amazing green. We loved watching daily the numerous birds and of course the local iguana who is around all the time! We made good use of the BBQ which was great to have. There is a Luperon grocery store close by in Playa Hermosa which is a little more expensive so we went to Auto Mercado in Playas del Coco and also to WalMart in Liberia. Fantastic home and relaxing.

Yes! This was a hit

  • 5 of 5

The house is exactly as presented on the website. Very clean, accessible, comfortable and inviting. This was perfect for us, 2 couples traveling together for our first visit to Costa Rica. The management company was stellar in giving us an orientation and introducing us to Tico Tours. This is on our list to stay again when we come back. "Our cup we left was from Crabby Washington!" That was a fun way to leave a part of us for future guests to enjoy. ENJOY

Terrific property!

  • 5 of 5

What a terrific house! It was all that was advertised and more. The owner was responsive in answering our many questions prior to booking and he even helped with booking our car rental. The owner had a detailed manual for the house and surrounding areas including restaurants, points of interest, and things to do. The house had everything we needed including kitchen supplies, grill, towels, etc. We made great use of the pool and prepared several meals in the kitchen. We would highly recommend this property to anyone and hope to return at some point!

great house

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa en el Cielo. It was a great house. The owner had put together a very helpful instruction book that made everything easy. The location was great; easy to get to Playa Hermosa and Playa del Cocos was a short drive. The house was very well equipped from the kitchen to beach items (toys, chairs and towels). We are a family of 4; each kid had their own room and bathroom, which was awesome. It was so easy to relax. The pool was great and the kids spent a lot of time playing in the pool. It was a carefree stay. We did get to see Larry the Iguana several times, but only saw the monkey once. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. We highly recommend it. I must say the owner, Jamie, was very responsive prior to our stay. The management company was close by. Great place!
