We stayed at Sheelagh and John's place for two nights. There cannot be better hosts! The property is beautiful and the views amazing. Don't miss the cooked breakfast and dinners. Sheelagh and John are very knowledgeable about the surroundings and Costa Rica in general; it's a pleasure to discuss Costa Rica and the rest of the world with them. Unfortunately... More

Short review: Amazing! Great hosts. Full review: This was planned as the first part of a three week Costa Rica Honeymoon (which turned into 4 weeks - another story). We really wanted to climb Chirripo in the first week, so contacted lots of places in the area. When we got the reply from Sheelagh at Casa dos Celtas we knew... More

We stayed twice in "Aracari" cottage where by now we feel like we are coming home to our own little cabin in this idyllic spot at the foot of mount Chirripo. The accommodation is large, clean, and well equipped, so that if we wished to cater for ourselves everything is provided, but if you are privileged to spend even one... More

This is a fantastic property. We stayed in the Aracari Cottage and it was like having our own ranch to stay in! A lovely self contained cottage with a large kitchen, dining area and lounge. We also had a great balcony with a garden view to sit in the afternoon, watch the wildlife and drink our gin and tonics! The... More

From the moment we spoke with Sheelagh on the phone to book our reservation, we knew this is where we wanted to stay. The accomodations in the Almendra room were first class and the service and hospitality she and John provided were well beyond our expectations. We hope to see our new friends in future visits! As a wildlife photographer,... More

As we wanted to see Cerro Chirripó, the highest mountain in Costa Rica we choose our accomodation in close vicinity and decided for Casa de los Celtas not far from Rivas. We were warmly welcomed by Sheelagh and John who made our stay as nice and comfortable as could be. The accommodation is wonderful and clean with a nice bedroom,... More

We had a great stay at Casa de los Celtas.  Sheelagh & John are such great hosts. They make you feel part of the family & we felt we were leaving friends on the day of our departure.  The Almendra room was spacious & comfortable, with an excellent adjoining shower room.  Breakfast, served on the patio, was superb. We had... More

We stayed with John and Sheelagh at their beautiful home and B&B for just a night en route from Quepos to San Jose. Despite its brevity, it will remain a pleasant memory. Everything about it exceeded our expectations: a guided stroll through botanical gardens; engaging conversation and good humor; an excellent recommendation for dinner at "Bazooka"; a most peaceful sleep;...

John and Sheelagh gave us a warm welcome after our long drive from Arenal. It was an ideal stop on our route to Wilson Gardens. This b&b is situated about 7kms out of San Isidro de General on a good road, just before reaching Rivas. A large garden that is kept immaculate by John provides a good chance of seeing... More
