A perfect start to a 2month vacation in Costa Rica, the best stay we had in country.

  • Submitted: Apr 6, 2014

We spent 3 1/2 weeks in the Rainbow House and it was pure delight. The kitchen was well provided with utensils and appliances and Richard even built us a new one. It was a rack for a coffee sock that made the best coffee I have ever drank. I am back in South Dakota drinking a cup of that sock coffee right now. The oven and the stove were the best we had anywhere in Costa Rica during our 2 month stay. We walked a great deal, to Monteverde, to a wonderful bakery about 10 minutes away, to the coffee plantation about 8 minutes away for good coffee and a wonderful view of the Gulf.
Our favorite view was at dawn looking over the Nicoya Gulf and Peninsula from the living room of the Rainbow House. We walked all over the property and saw numerous wildlife and birds. The entire stay was the most relaxing of our lives. A cool 64 degrees to a high of 92 made the mornings and night cools and the days warm in the afternoons. We would carry a light jacket on our morning hikes.
Our favorite adventure was the train ride in the Cloud Forest and we stayed for lunch after. The day we rode the train Richard arranged the transportation, got us a discount on the fare, and went with us to Monteverde to coordinate the shuttle to the train station. The heavy clouds on the ride covered Arenal Volcano at the top overlook so Richard arranged a trip to another overlook a couple of days later and the volcano was very visible. He went with us that day.

We really enjoyed exploring the area and Santa Elena. We found great restaurants, coffee shop with monkeys, grocery stores, pharmacy, bakeries, pizza place, dance bar and restaurant, an orchid farm and Rosewood shop that Richard suggested.

The taxi service that Richard recommended was inexpensive and more dependable than the other company. The water in the showers in both bathrooms was hot and plentiful. The washer took a little instruction from Richard to run, but was very dependable. The dryer was mother nature on the top floor clothes lines. The balcony up there had a hammock and an even better view of the Gulf.
The only complaint we had in 3 1/2 weeks was ants hit the kitchen, but Richard wiped them out with some chemicals outside at their source. The last day we were there our taxi let us down. We arranged a 4am ride to the bus stop and the driver didn't make it. Richard got up and helped us carry 150lbs of luggage about 200 yards to the stop. We learned to take less next trip.

Great Place

This rental is in a great location. We were in the cottage, and enjoyed its privacy and incredible view out to the Nicoya Peninsula. The bed and kitchen were very good with adequate space. All in all a great value. Richard was most helpful in orienting us and making suggestions for restaurants; and he arranged a Curi Concha tour for us with Adrien, who is an excellent guide. We saw a Quetzal and a lot of other exotic birds. Richard showed us the two waterfalls on the property and went out of his way to be helpful. For those of you who have never gone to Monteverde and are planning to drive yourselves, be ready for the extremely rough dirt roads into the area. However, you will eventually get used to this and will even become nostalgic about the remoteness of the place.

Fun in the Cloud forest

We really enjoyed our stay at the cloud forest cottage. It is very private and the view from the cottage is beautiful. The humming birds in front of the windows are amazing and beautiful to watch.
Richard was a great source of information about the local area. The cottage was very clean and the kitchen had everything we needed.
Would definitely return.

GREAT PLACE TO STAY!

  • Stayed: Jul 2012
Spent five nights here with our two kids and the views from the sun room were amazing. We sat in there the first morning with our coffee and spotted a variety of birds, butterflies, and hummingbird moths within minutes. Every additional morning was spent in the sun room having coffee and taking in the view. We enjoyed having the kitchen to prepare our evening meals which we sat down for with a wonderful view of the hill side and gulf. Many hours were spent wandering the trails on the cottage grounds were we spotted a variety of birds including the Emerald Toucanet, Toucan, Manakin, and Motmot. Our care taker Richard was very knowledgeable of the area and pointed us in the right direction every time. He even took the time to take us on a night hike which was a great experience. Town is a short drive with a variety of restaurants, shops, and grocery stores that met our needs. Richard was AWESOME and very hospitable taking care of our every need and ensured we had everything we needed for a clean comfortable stay. I highly recommend staying at the Cloud Forest Cottage and WHEN we return we will be sure to check availability for another pleasant stay.
Additional info… all the sites we saw in the area was a short drive and the following attractions are all kid friendly and HIGHLY recommended. Our favorite hiking trails were located in in the Ciri Cancha Reserve (recommended by Richard and much better than the Monteverde Reserve) where we saw a variety of birds (to include a hummingbird area that was a great carry in lunch spot), capuchin monkeys, a pit viper, and agoutis. Selvatura Park had an amazing zip line tour and the canopy bridges trail system was amazing. Their humming bird garden is swarming with hundreds of hummers and even Coatis licking up the feeder drippings. And for any Geocaching enthusiasts… there are even a few caches to venture out and seek.

We stayed for 2 nights in the Rainbow House and couldn't have been happier with our stay. Richard was huge help with setting up a night walk/zip lining and suggesting restaurants worth checking out in the area. He was also nice enough to take us on a walking tour of his property which was truly enjoyable. The house itself was very clean and had all the necessary accessories we needed. If I make my way back to the area I will be staying here!

The view was to die for!

In the Monteverde area there are 400 species of birds of the 850 species found in Costa Rica. We have spotted many mammals and butterflies on our property as well. A pair of Emerald green toucanets nested in our old century plant. The distinctive 'pong' sound of the bellbird can be heard nearby. So can the 'toledo' of the manakin. Richard can take you on walks down through the forest to our rushing mountain stream with small waterfalls. You may hear coyotes at night; several sizes of agoutis graze through our back garden.

Notes:
Nature Lovers paradise! Birdwatchers and Spanish-language students enjoy this area. Nestled in a guava forest on 7 acres, altitude about 4500 feet above sea level, looking down to the Gulf of Nicoya (part of the Pacific Ocean). Many tropical animals and birds have been spotted here. Hummingbirds everywhere! Very secluded. Rushing mountain stream which is heavily wooded forms one of the boundaries of this property.
