Jaw dropping beautiful home!
We stayed at Casa Cieba for 6 days and I must say when we first saw the house my mouth dropped open! From the beautiful carved wooden doors to the spectacular lake and volcano views from every room in the house, this place is amazing! You can sit on the porch swing, drinking your morning coffee and listen to all the birds, or sit in the hot tub in the evening and witness some of the best sunsets I've ever seen! We were fortunate enough to see toucans, green parrots, coatis and white faced monkeys along with a host of other birds right from the house. You have to do Sky Trek which is just down the road. I would recommend not only doing the zip lines but also the guided hanging bridges tour. We also did several excursions using Desafio and got a 10% discount for booking multiple tours. These included waterfall rapelling, caving and white water rafting! We didn't get a chance to hike up Cerro Chato volcano as it rained the day we planned on going but this gave us a chance to relax and enjoy the house! Be sure to check out the Eco Zoo right in El Castillo and ask the neighbour alan about the hidden waterfall hike, it's an easy walk but fun and beautiful. We spent 3 hours at Baldi hot springs and could easily have stayed half a day!
There were a few minor issues at the house in regards to using the washer and dryer and hot water but I let Jim know and he is fixing this. Jim was a great guy to deal with, very informative and always answers your e-mail inquiries right away! The rooms have comfortable beds and each room has it's own balcony! There's wifi which is handy and a mobile phone to use for local calls. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need, other than a dishwasher lol. The hot tub takes a good hour to heat up so be sure to give yourself time before sunset! Our only regret was that we didn't book more time at Casa Cieba so we could kick back and enjoy the house more!
Best Vrbo We have ever rented.
Great location, breathtaking views, super comfortable house. Enough room for 8-10. Great support staff. Amazing food. We are Vrbo junkies and have rented homes all over the world, this was the best.

My stay at Casa Ceiba was simply relaxing, fun, and adventurous. The house is brand new, very clean, and well designed with 3 bedrooms, each with their own porch, a nice living room, and gourmet kitchen. The house has tile floors throughout and a wooden ceiling design that catches your eye as soon as you walk in. We enjoyed a spectacular view while hanging out in the pool and hot tub. Pool and house were cleaned every day, no issues! We were greeted each morning by a charming woman who took great care of us during our stay, cooking us gourmet breakfasts and dinners and treating us so very kindly.
Nearby town of La Fortuna was quaint and plentiful of our needs and included a coffee house for which we went to a few times and enjoyed the best cup of coffee I ever had. Our Zip Lining adventure was quite exhilarating and within 10 minutes of the house. Our hike up the very well maintained Cerro Chato Volcano in nearby La Fortuna was the most challenging hike ever but I enjoyed every minute! We also visited one of the many hot springs which are located nearby and just enjoyed a great afternoon of relaxation and beautiful atmosphere.
While we drove by many other rental properties in the area, I think our rental was in the best area, with the best view, and offered the most amenities. I highly recommend this rental and I plan to revisit next year.
