Fantastic stay!  ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

We stayed here for a week for a family reunion (6 adults, 1 child) and loved every bit of it. The house is beautiful; we spent most of our time in the kitchen or the pool area. The views are great and the home has everything you need to enjoy a good vacation! You def need a car to get around; we spent days on quite a few beaches including Hermosa, Ocotal, Panama, Coco (all close by) and Tamarindo and Flamingo (1 hour drive). The airport is only 25 mins away. 

There are a couple of grocery stores within 10 mins so easy to stock up. And all the beaches have great bars and restaurants. But you do need a 4x4 vehicle as the roads are quite windy and steep. 

During our stay, the pool was cleaned twice and maid also came midweek to clean up the house; did a spectacular job! And lastly, Jamie the owner is a great guy to work with! He was always available; via phone or email and even called vrbo to discuss our options for the security deposit vs damage insurance. I would recommend this home to anyone looking to enjoy the coast - its a beautiful home, well decorated and a family of 8-10 can really enjoy it. Get a car and explore all the beaches guanacaste has to offer.

Thank you Jamie for letting us enjoy your home!

FANTASTIC PROPERTY!  ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

This property was just as advertised with wonderful views in two different directions! The house had everything that we needed and if there was anything that we needed the property manager was there to help. The location was also great being just a very short drive to great beaches and restaurants. It's a very quiet location, at least when we were there so it's great for a family vacation. We love Costa Rica and would recommend this property to anyone who wants a relaxing, quiet getaway. Thanks for allowing us to enjoy your home!

TRULY AMAZING! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

We stayed here for a quick get away to celebrate New Year's 2017 with a total of 10 of us squeezing into the house. The kitchen is gorgeous - we cooked pretty much every meal. The pool is incredible - I think we all woke up and swam as soon as we woke up. One thing I guess I wished I had realized was a better sense of the location - the beach is definitely not walkable. It's at least 2 miles away and the hill to/from the house is very steep (tried walking to dinner once and had a nasty fall). Also, make sure you get a decent rental car because we had a little Nissan and even flooring it we were crawling up the hill. Overall the stay was great. The concierge at Tico Tours was great - we could arrange transportation for day trips and beach days so we could get a little boozy and not worry about the car. Again - truly amazing vacation!!!

WE'LL BE BACK! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ 

This was our first trip to Costa Rica... won't be our last! Jamie's house is lovely, in an exceptional neighbourhood with outstanding views, especially the upstairs master! We spent our evenings at the wonderful beach restaurants in Playa Hermosa. Our favorites were Aqua Sport, and Robertos. We'll be back!

SPECTACULAR!   ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Location is great! Safe and short drive to many beaches. The view from the house is breath taking whether you are in the balcony or poolside. The privacy and view from the pool is something which pictures and words cannot describe. Rooms are roomy and comfortable as are the bathrooms. Our family was sad to leave to our next destination as this house really felt like home. Very well kept. Steve was the onsite manager. He is amazing and very polite. Offered us a map and directions as to how to get around in the area as well as options for activities and dining. Jamie is amazing, great host! Looking forward to our return.

P.S. if you did not have your own car, local transportation would be able to get you to and from the home. Although you can work out a good deal once you land. If renting a car just make sure to negotiate a good rate best done in person and take pictures and or video upon pick up, will save you much hassle and money upon return.

Wonderful home, great owner input and local service!   ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

We loved the house and the location! It is a beautiful home, fully equipped in a great gated community. The outdoor living area and infinity pool are incredible. We grilled and cooked many meals at the house and everything worked perfectly. The master bedroom is fantastic- it is large, has its own TV, and more importantly its own large covered deck area with different views than from the pool area. The location was great because it is so close to Playa Hermosa and only a little bit further from Playa Coco. Hermosa feels slower, with great snorkeling a few minute boat ride off the beach, and some nice restaurants. Coco is much livelier with some great restaurants and more local shopping. Try Citron for dinner, you will be glad you did.

Jamie, the owner, was so helpful with information, ease of booking, ideas on what to do and where to go, and anything else you can think of.

The house is locally managed by Zindis Group. The property manager that we worked with throughout our stay was Edgar. He was really great to work with, so helpful, fast to respond to any needs and exhibits a total service attitude.

I highly recommend Casa Cielo!

"House was just as described, beautiful location, has all amenities and roomy, will return again!  Pool, rooms , patio, kitchen all as described, perfect!"

 Private with a GREAT VIEW! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

"Clean, 100% as described, well equipped kitchen, kids loved the pool which is all private with a great view. The beach is close by car, only 4-5 minutes. We didn't go to the beach in Playa Hermosa until the 3rd day of our trip which was a mistake because its nice and quiet. Plus, we discovered the "Aquasport Bar & Restaurant" where we parked and had drinks all day long. They have beach chairs available for their customers. The drinks where REALLY good, but not with too much alcohol and the food was ok. The location is perfect if you have a rental car."

 Perfect location, Beautiful views! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

"This was the perfect location, with beautiful views, close to Liberia Airport, and a 5 minute drive to the beach. The owner answered all my questions before our trip and the rental company was so helpful throughout our stay, even when we arrived on a Sunday. The house had everything we could possibly need for our trip. We spent every evening just listening to the monkeys, swimming, and enjoying the views. We also enjoyed our morning walks. We could not have found a better house for our visit to Costa Rica!"

House was AMAZING!  ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

"This was our first trip to Costa Rica and the house made our trip wonderful! It was lass than 5 minutes to Playa Hermosa beach which is a beautiful family oriented beach. We went there almost everyday. The views from the back patio and master patio were amazing. We woke up every morning and drank fabulous Costa Rican coffee by the pool. The infinity pool was wonderful...85-92 degree water! Our daughter lived in the pool! The town of Playa Hermosa was great. Everyone was friendly and very willing to help us with the little Spanish we spoke. The Luperon store in town was great for quick needs and the big Auto Mercado in Playa Del Coco was only 10 minutes away. Jamie has a well equipped home with everything we needed. My husband is a Chef and he absolutely loved the kitchen. The master bedroom and bathroom was enormous! And the two bedrooms down stairs had plenty of room and each with their on bathroom. This was the perfect house for our vaca and will be the perfect house of anyone's Costa Rican Vacation! We cannot wait for our next trip and hopefully we will be able to rent Jamie's home again! Pura Vida!"

Awesome! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

"The house was wonderful and so cozy it felt like home. Also felt very safe within the gated community. Was beautifully decorated and had everything we needed especially the master bedroom with the amazing view and so huge could live in! The outside pool area is unbelievable with amazing view and constant sun but also a large area of shade with wonderfully comfortable furnishing. Also loved the large outside dining table with lazy susan and the easy access window from the kitchen to just pass snacks through!! Playa Hermosa is wonderful, the people were friendly and helpful and the beach was uncrowded and clean! Cannot say enough good things and would definitely return!!"
