“Perfect for our Wedding Reception”
Reviewed March 14, 2015 for a stay in November 2014

This villa is beautiful, spacious, and in a great location.

Damian, the concierge, was great and always assisting with everything we needed from dinner reservations, taxis, to excursions and recommendations.

As we had a small wedding in Manuel Antonio we'd decided to have the reception at the house which ended up being a great choice. The property lends itself surprisingly well to that type of occasion with plenty of room for dinner, dancing, and live music.

Our entire experience at Casa Cielo was amazing. From nearly daily visits from the squirrel monkeys, to hanging out by the pool late night, it's the perfect place to come "home" to after enjoying all the activities Manuel Antonio has to offer.

Hi Mark and Jenny,
Thank you so much for letting us be part of your beautiful wedding!!! The reception at the house really turned up beautifully. The video made me tear up when I watched it! It was soooo touching and beyond beautiful! The look of happiness on everyone's faces really shows the celebration and love shared by everyone in your family/group. We would love to have you back again at Casa Cielo anytime! The entire staff enjoyed taking care of your family!

Best,
Laya

“A Stunning VIlla with the perfect combination of privacy and communal space.”
Reviewed February 20, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Traveled to the area with a film crew of 7 and used the villa as a base. The property is better than described, and the owner was very easy to work with. It it located in a very convenient location - you are a short car or bus ride away from the park, the beach and the town. It has the look and feel of a upscale modern mansion.

The owner was very very easy to work.

Worth mentioning, the property layout is much more than a simple 6 bedroom. Its basically a small hotel with 4 of the rooms being completely private units with their own kitchenettes. All rooms have private en suite bathrooms. Very very very nice for large groups as you have your own space for some private time as well as use of the stunning common areas.

One of the best features of the house is the concierge Damain. He lives literally next door and is available 24 / 7 and was beyond helpful. From arranging taxis, tours, food... you name it, he is just the kindest most helpful person with a great grasp of english. We had literally 10s of thousands of dollars of film equipment and never felt worried cause of Damian presence.

Worth noting - the entrance to the Casa is very modest - you have no idea from the road just how nice the place and its fantastic as it does not attract any unwanted attention, very very chic and also comforting when traveling with expensive items.

Also worth noting, the house keeper does high end resort type service right down to the towels being made into works of art like swans and hearts - very very over the top.

The kitchen is stacked with every needed appliance including slowcooker, gas range, blenders, chef quality knives... you name it. The BBQ is also very hot and great for steaks.

Other odds and ends - wifi was fast but had a few down hours, water to the entire area was up and down a few times, not the fault of the casa.

I will book this and only this casa when returning to the area... its just that good.

Best to check out my photos to get an idea of what the property looks like.

“Beautiful home, excellent location”
Reviewed August 12, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We visited Case Cielo for my sister-in-law's birthday and had a wonderful time. The house is gorgeous, clean, and the perfect place for relaxing and entertaining. We were visited by monkeys almost every morning and we even saw three toucans in the backyard. There is a staff of people working at the house who clean inside and out and a concierge named Damian to help you book excursions, personal chefs, and other activities. It was an unexpected delight but make sure you budget for tips. We highly recommend Casa Cielo to other travelers -- you will not be disappointed!

“Exceptional stay at beautiful Casa Cielo”
Reviewed June 27, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

The property is lovely-- modern, comfortable, clean. It is conveniently located between Quepos and the Manuel Antonio National Park. And the concierge service offered by Damian, who lives next door, was extremely helpful. Damian was available, responsive, and well-connected. He took time to understand what we wanted to do and make arrangements for us that met with our schedules and preferences. Overall, this was a wonderful vacation. The monkey visitors every afternoon were a lot of fun too!
