While close to surfing, shopping, restaurants & nightlife, sometimes its nice to stay at a retreat, where you can enjoy the beauty of Costa Rica. We're located about 20 minutes from Jaco, Close enough to enjoy the beaches and all that Jaco has to offer, but where you can also walk out your front door, go for a hike and end up in the waterfalls less than a 1/2 mile, then slip into the private pool overlooking this amazing view of the Nicoya Peninsula, it doesn't get much better.
This home is perfect for a relaxing, peaceful holiday. Overlooking Jaco, Herradura, and the Nicoya Peninsula, and bordering Carara National Park, Cielo Gardens is an excellent destination for vacationers wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Perfect for families, or couples wanting to explore the real Costa Rica.
Cielo Gardens has more than 40 waterfalls of various sizes under the forest canopy and a short walk from the house. The entire ecosystem in this area is built around the constantly flowing spring waters. This is the absolute best location to see this wondrous system in action every single day. These waters draw monarch butterflies, humming birds, dragonflies, and even Costa Rica’s famed colorful tiny dart frogs. Scarlet macaws, toucans, hawks, parakeets, parrots and more are seen daily at the waterfalls and trails.
Located in a new gated community, this home was constructed in 2010, and has ocean views from every room in the house. If you like to cook, you'll love the kitchen; cooking a meal while enjoying views of the Nicoya Peninsula is something you'll never forget. The high exposed teak beamed ceilings draw the warmer air up to provide a cool environment within the house. All bedrooms have air conditioning, although the nights can be very cool, and you'll more than likely want to keep the windows open to feel the cool breezes.
There are three spacious bedrooms, two with queen size beds, and one with 4 bunk beds. The large master bedroom has an en-suite bath with large shower. The other 2 bedrooms share a Jack and Jill bath and another half bath is off the living area. The living room is furnished with comfortable leather sofas, and a movie library to enjoy.
This home also features it's own private pool and outdoor dining area overlooking the amazing ocean views of Nicoya Peninsula and Gulf. All within a 20 minute drive you'll find a Tilapia farm, where you can fish for your own lunch! And they'll cook it up however you like. Also a short drive away is Pura Vida Gardens and Waterfalls - where you'll also find Adventure Dining - ranked among the top restaurants in the area with Trip Advisor. Day trips include a day in Manuel Antonio, or Dominical. There's just so much to do, but you'll want to find time to enjoy this wonderful retreat.

We own a bed & breakfast in Charleston, SC, and we wanted a home away home in Costa Rica.
We've been visiting Costa Rica for over 20 years, and we love it. And of all the places we have visited, this had the most amazing views of all.
Waterfalls! We love to walk down to the waterfalls and take a cool dip in the pools. It the best way to start the mornings!
