“Casa Cielo - The Perfect Place To Stay”
Reviewed April 28, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Casa Cielo is a beautiful home and perfect place to stay while visiting the Arenal area. The house has everything you need to make your stay enjoyable, from the open air bar upstairs to the wonderful outdoor living area and pool. It is remote enough to feel like you are in your own private world but close enough to travel to all area sites and attractions. Paul and Rosy were wonderful hosts and made us feel right at home. The breakfasts served poolside were delicious and a great way to start each day. We had dinner at the property on our last evening and wished we had dined there every evening! Paul booked our Sky Trek adventure and was always helpful in providing us with maps and information regarding the surrounding area as well as providing us ideas for our stay at the beach. If you are looking for a place to stay, look no further......Casa Cielo is the perfect place to stay. Pura Vida!

“Fantastic home and great hosts- helpful with adventures tours and guidance”
Reviewed April 24, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Really enjoyed Casa Cielo - Paul and Rosy are great hosts. Highly recommend having them cook dinner a few times as it's nice to come home after a long day and not worry about heading back out for meals or cooking. The place is beautiful, very clean and well maintained.

The location is a bit remote and the roads are not the best but we had no problems getting there. La Fortuna is relatively close. Paul gave us some great tips and made some reservations - we did the Hanging Bridges guided tour - excellent. Adventura Mundo Arenal - zip lines - fantastic. Hiked to the waterfall in La Fortuna, Hiked to Cerro Chato, road side hot springs. A great area, great house! Can't forget Junior, we all fell in love with the family dog.

Casa Cielo is truly heaven on earth! From the moment we arrived, my family and I felt instantly at home. The house is beautiful, clean and spacious. We spent a lot of time outside by the pool. The backyard is so peaceful with a waterfall and ample bird watching opportunities. Every morning we enjoyed a delicious homemade breakfast with coffee, fresh fruit and juice. We had two dinners at Casa Cielo. Both were incredible! Our family has several food allergies (nuts and gluten). Paul and Rosie managed to make all of our meals allergy-free, including a nut-free/gluten-free birthday cake!

The house is in a great location. It's a short drive to La Fortuna, Arenal, and The Springs. Paul gives great directions and is always around to answer questions. He even arranged a special visit to a private butterfly farm run buy a wonderful woman. This is not on any tourist itinerary. It was a truly unique and authentic Costa Rica experience. We loved every minute of our stay at Casa Cielo and cannot wait to return!

From the time you arrive, Paul makes you feel as part of his family. Spectacular food, extremely clean, gorgeous view, no lack of advice on what to do and what not to do. His wife, kids and dog (junior) are all great. Excellent value and no problem recommending,

“Amazing Retreat!”
Reviewed April 14, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We enjoyed our time at Casa Cielo along with two other couples and what an incredible place to stay! Amazing accommodations that one can only dream about. We can't say enough about Paul, Rosy, and their little ones Stefy and Lukas; wonderful hosts that strive to get everything right.

Great way to start each day with Costa Rican coffee, variety of home cooked breakfast options, fresh fruit, and juice.

Paul is very knowledgeable with the local attractions and will recommend options based on your interests to ensure your best possible experience.

Dinners at Casa Cielo were a daily highlight. We had a variety of dishes and all were exceptional. Pizza in the wood fired brick oven is a must have.

If you enjoy the company of a dog you will definitely fall for Junior the family pet.

This was our first vacation in a private retreat and what an incredible experience!

The biggest problem we are now facing is how can we possibly top this vacation?

We would definitely return to Casa Cielo.

Thanks for an amazing vacation.

Paul Robinson, owner of Casa Cielo Volcano View Retreat is an outstanding host providing excellent service to his guests, and his home is just beautiful with a gorgeous view of the Arenal Volcano, green foliage and birds on the property. My family of six enjoyed every minute of our stay from the delicious breakfasts served poolside each morning, to the beautiful house set up and all the amenities provided within the house. Paul and his lovely wife Rosie live next door, so were available to answer questions, help arrange tours, make suggestions in the area, and make our stay perfect. The house is located in a rural area reached by a rather rocky road, so having a rental car is must. But the location was part of the charm of our stay. Paul even brought butterfly cocoons from a nearby farm to his home so that we could watch blue butterflies hatch one morning! Paul's adorable children and pets also added to the joy of our visit. We highly recommend this lovely family and home to future visitors!

Casa Cielo is very deserving of all five stars and I'll gladly tell you why...
We were a group of 6 (three couples) traveling to Costa Rica for my girlfriend’s 40th Birthday. Prior to our arrival, (during my planning stage) Paul was always prompt to replay to emails and answer my many questions. I found his knowledge of the area and good communication skills to be extremely helpful. Upon arrival Paul coordinated our transportation from Fortuna Airport to Casa Cielo.
Casa Cielo is even lovelier than it appears in the pictures and the grounds are very well maintained. The location is beautiful and has a great view of the Arenal Volcano and a well-designed outdoor pool and dining area.
Paul was so helpful both with helping plan excursions and going out of his way to arrange meals, transportation, and offering other concierge services.
Coffee was prepared each morning to be enjoyed poolside. Breakfast of tropical fruit, fresh juice, and pancakes or omelets was absolutely delicious! I can honestly say that every meal prepared was delicious and truly enjoyed by all six of us. I recommend planning to eat dinner at Casa Cielo during your stay. My friends especially enjoyed the wood fired pizza and BBQ.

By the end of our stay Paul and his family felt like old friends. Given Paul's helpful planning and attention to details, the beautiful home, and excellent food... Casa Cielo is the place you want to stay! PURA VIDA!
