Last winter we had the luck to stay in this fantastic B&B. Not only the room is great, the best are the breakfast and the diners. Sheelagh is a warm person and a very good cook. While you have breakfast the very beautiful birds keep you company. A great place to stay a few day's when you visit this part of Costa Rica.
Large comfortable cabin in extensive gardens or bedroom in main house, whichever you choose Sheelagh and John go the extra mile to make your stay a great experience. Delicious breakfasts with fresh fruits, freshly baked breads and more if you have room!
I contacted the Casa De Los Celtas solely for information purposes and the response was full of very helpful information. Sheelagh provided me with excellent service regarding the property and responded quickly and professionally. If I am ever in the area, I will stay with Casa De Los Celtas purely from their outstanding service that I have received from them today.
We enjoyed four nights in this small bed and breakfast near San Isidro. Sheelagh and John are wonderful hosts, keen to make sure that you make the most of this beautiful part of Costa Rica. It is perfect for anyone interested in bird watching (close to Los Cusingos, Alexander Skutch's home and garden), gorgeous gardens (the secret garden is nearby) and not too far from the Chirripo National Park. The breakfasts and dinners were outstanding: varied, fresh, delicious and beautifully presented. Breakfast on the sunny balcony, overlooking their extensive garden and the valley beyond was a high point of each day (especially John's homemade bread). The sound of silence and bird song was special; as was watching the colourful birds (including blue-crowned motmot, golden-hooded tanager, bay-headed tanager, Hoffmann's woodpecker and spangle-cheeked tanager) tempted by the feeders close by. We stayed in the self-contained cabin which is spacious and well equipped. The attention to detail is for your comfort. We appreciated the plumbing (powerful shower and septic tank so toilet paper can be flushed); the big bedroom window overlooking the palms and trees; the crisp white linen sheets, big fluffy towels and thick, soft toilet paper. There was a plentiful supply of beverages and biscuits in our kitchen. The basic necessities but so much more ... from their detailed local knowledge to engaging discussion about current affairs.…
Sheelagh and John were helpful even months before we arrived, lending us their travel expertise over the phone in regard to getting to their B&B. They were also very welcoming when we arrived. The room cost $80, and was well worth it for the two of us along with the large breakfast. The room was large, and the shower was particularly beautiful. Sheelagh also drove us back into town on her way elsewhere, saving us money on a taxi. Wifi was a bit spotty, but their septic system was nice touch of home, meaning that toilet paper could be flushed.
