CASA CIELO-SECLUDED CABIN IN PRIVATE PARADISE, 15 MIN FROM MONTEVERDE

Monteverde Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Fully Equipped Cabin, 2 floors, 1 Bedroom + Additional sleep. areas, (Sleeps 6)

Bird-watcher´s paradise. Enjoy the million-dollar view of the Gulf of Nicoya and the mountains from this two-story new cabin in a secluded 5-acre preserve with lots of fruit trees (tangerines, oranges, water apples, grapefruits, bananas, avocado, rose apples, lemons), over 30 medicinal plants, free-range chickens, and more-

Please see our other reviews on TripAdvisor.

Only 15 minutes to Monteverde, 7 mins to Santa Elena

Situated right off the main road to San Jose (route 606), but nestled in the mountains, it is a 5 minute drive to grocery stores, banks, restaurants, etc.

Enjoy the Cloud Forest attractions during the day, but at night, retreat to the low-land drier and warmer climate and its diverse wildlife.

Wake up to the sound of parrots flying overhead and blue magpies knocking at your window, then warm up with a cup of herbal tea straight from our garden or organic coffee from the San Luis Valley.

Later on, take a walk on the trails and see beauty and biodiversity all around... you could even feed the chickens and fish.

In the evening, watch the amazing sunset from the balcony and curl up in a tub for two.

Less than 2 hours to the beach, 3.5 hours to Volcan Arenal, 30 mins to Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve and zip-lines, 20 mins to Children´s Eternal Rain Forest, 7 minutes to ranarium, herpetarium, horse-back rides, orchid and butterfly gardens.

The cabin is fully equipped. The first floor features the kitchen with large picture windows overlooking the mountains and ocean. There is a living area, a desk, a washer and a full bathroom. The second floor has a comfortable double bed, a balcony also overlooking the ocean, a romantic bathtub for two, a sofa and coffee table and some storage space. A ladder takes you to an additional sleeping area for a teenager or adult (too dangerous for a small child).

There is wi-fi/internet free of charge. You also have your own phone line with free calls within Costa Rica.

Email us for daily, weekly or monthly rates. We also offer RURAL TOURS.

Alexander was born in the San Luis Valley in the Monteverde region and has lived all his life here. He started working when he was 11 years old helping his father herd oxen to take milk to the local cheese factory. At the age of 15, he began working for the Children´s Eternal Rain Forest. He worked for InBio (Instituto Nacional de Biodiversidad) for 5 years researching snails all over Costa Rica. He also worked for ProNativas, an non-profit organization that promotes the use of native ornamental plants as a conservation effort. He believes in changing the world one person at a time, starting with ourselves. He uses his 5 acre farm and cabin, his family and neighbors to help visitors understand the intimate connection that we have to the land. These neighbors, the local farmers and housewives get to benefit from the tourism that comes to Monteverde and get to share their own wisdom. Everyone wins.

Veronica was born in Mexico and spent 25 years in the States. She worked as a biologist, then as a licensed clinical social worker in various settings including private practice with people suffering from chronic physical illnesses and hospice care. She arrived in Monteverde a few years ago with her 5 year old son, Stuart. She founded PAWS costarica (Promotion of Animal Wellbeing Society), a non-profit organization to help educate people regarding the responsible and compassionate treatment of animals. She believes, like Alex, in changing the world from the inside (OUR inside) out. Everything we do, our choices and lifestyles sum up to our current state of affairs… we have the power to choose again so we can heal ourselves, our planet and all living beings.

Stuart is now 10 years old and attends the Monteverde Friends School. He shares our family dream of enjoying the simple things and having lots of fun caring for our farm animals and playing soccer with the neighbors.

veronica sheehan purchased this cabin in 2005

22 years ago, Alexander bought this land. It had been used for cattle and was pretty devoid of tress. He wanted to reforest it and turn it into a safe haven for birds and animals. He built the cabin 5 years ago. It is now a 5 acre paradise!

We love the peace and quiet, the sounds of the parrots flying overhead, and of the birds on the trees. We like having lots of space to roam and to plant things. Our animals are happy here too and we enjoy seeing them free and happy. We enjoy eating what we grow. We feel in harmony with nature. We are close to everything, but when we are home we have our privacy and space. There is enough peace that you can relax, renew and reconnect. Being here reminds one of who we truly are and why we are here.

Peaceful retreat with stunning view!

We enjoyed 8 nights at this peaceful cabin away from the bustling touristy town of Santa Elena. We came to this area of CR to primarily hike in the cloud forests and that we did! Monteverde Reserve, Santa Elena, Selvatura Hanging Bridges, Curi Conchea for viewing of Quetzels are must do if you like to hike. Also enjoyed Serpentarium, Bat Jungle, Stellas Cafe, and Taco Taco. Casa Ceilo was a peaceful retreat after a full day of activities. The cabin has all the necessary amenities for cooking a lovely meal while enjoying a million dollar view. Balcony sitting area wonderful for enjoying a drink and watching gorgeous sunsets. Veronica and family were great hosts and there if you need them. Welcoming Tico treat was tasty and appreciated. And, don't pass up a traditional Tico dinner or breakfast made by friendly neighbour Giselle, a delightful experience in itself. I would certainly recommend Casa Ceilo for those looking for a lovely unique lodging.

Amazing View, fantastic location

We spent four nights here in June, and we just loved the view and the location, just out of the hustle/bustle of Monteverde but close to everything as well. The view is SUPERB. The owners are the most fantastic people and will help you make the most of your stay--and they are an inspiration. Don't miss the horse back ride to the hot springs.

Fantastic vacation property

When we arrived Veronica had prepared a great (and healthy) meal. Veronica and alex provided freahly roasted coffee beans from their ranch/farm, the neighbours will sell you great cheese that they have made and fruit trees are all around the property. We had not arranged our trips before arriving, but a discussion with Veronica and a look through the guest book allowed us to quickly decide on the activities and Veronica made all of the arrangements. We did not rent a car, but did not need one. We walked to another neighbours house who provided us with a horse riding trip down to their spectacular hot pools and also made us a meal afterwards. For all other trips we took a taxi for a few dollars or took a taxi to town for free shuttle transport from Santa Elena. Veronica, Alex and Stuart also invited us to spend a day at their ranch where we had a great time with Stuarts extended family. Stryder (the dog that will place a stick on the exact spot you request) was a great source of entertainment for the family and accompanies you while walking around the very large and impressive property. The views are spectacular and the birds that can be seen from the house are too numerous to mention (kites, toucans, antbirds, hummingbirds, vultures to name a few). The whole family had a great vacation in Monteverde. Thanks very much Veronica, Alex, Stuart, Grandma, Stryder, Chicci for your invaluable help in making our vacation a memorable one (also, Selvatura Park is not to be missed).

Perfect location for touring the cloud forests

We arrived after dark and in the rain, but the owner, Veronica, was there to meet us with a smile and a hot Costa Rican dish! What a great start to a fabulous week at Casa Cielo. The house itself sits on a mountainside with a canopy view. The birdlife there is incredible and you're only 10 minutes from shops and restaurants in Santa Elena. The first morning we went to the local farmer's market and stocked up on local fruits/veggies and had a terrific breakfast before continuing our shopping at Super Compro for groceries, etc. The next few days were spent hiking the cloud forest reserves, ziplining, and touring the hummingbird and butterfly gardens. We made sure to eat at several of the local restaurants, including the CASEM Co-op. Excellent spot for lunch if hiking Curi Cancha or Monteverde cloud forest reserves. Be sure to stop in at the cheese factory for the ice cream. One of our favorite spots for a quick snack or lunch in Santa Elena was Taco Taco! Some of the best street tacos ever! The house at Casa Cielo is also perfect for just hanging out and watching the local birds and wildlife. We fed chickens, played with the dogs and just generally relaxed with a glass of wine while waiting for the rewarding sunsets at the end of the day. This is one of our favorite places made even better by the great family that has been willing to share their little piece of paradise.

So true and natural! Beautiful in every way.

While in CR, we visited Monteverde, Arenal, and Samara. All three places were absolutely amazing, but the highlight to our trip (by far) was staying at Casa Cielo and Rancho el Rio (both houses are owned by the same kind-hearted people, and only 30 minutes apart). We left Cielo feeling relaxed and inspired. The house was even more beautiful and charming than pictures.

We had everything we needed to have a seamless stay: wifi, all cooking equipment/spices, hot shower, maps, and more. They even provided us with warm delicious snacks, fresh coffee from their organic farm, and a bird book and binoculars to use on on the balcony and at nature parks. The house, kitchen, and linens were all super clean.

For activities, we hiked around the cielo, went to Curi Cancha Wildlife Refuge, and took a chocolate/coffee tour. There is so much more to do in the area, but we were limited on time (unfortunately!)- we will no doubt be back to visit and experience more.

We love to cook and we went to the Monteverde Whole Foods shop, next to the Casem Coop, which is a great place to buy souvenirs that benefit the local community. The grocery was perfect place to buy fresh, local/organic foods.

All in all, If you want to have a truly "pure" experience in CR, Casa Cielo and Monteverde are the places to be. The owners make you feel like a friend or family.
