Bosque En El Cielo - Incredible Sunsets - Spa

Pure Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
AMAZING! Beautiful home with incredible views. Very private and secluded. Cannot believe how high up the mountain we were and the beauty surrounding us. Be sure to take advantage of having breakfast and dinner prepared for you. Fabulous food and well worth the additional cost. Decided on having a massage and only wish we would have booked it in the beginning because it only added to our relaxation! Our first time to Costa Rica but it won't be our last. Everyone was so helpful and friendly. Felt like we were leaving friends at the end of the week. Alex and Grace, we look forward to seeing you next year. Thank you for such an amazing home for the week! Tom and Carol, Your new friends in Maryland

Breathtaking View

  • 5 of 5
I am normally not one to write reviews however we recently stayed at Bosque en el Cielo and had an absolutely amazing experience. The pictures of this home do not do it justice. We enjoyed many sunset nights in the pool and enjoyed listening to the many sounds of the jungle. We were showed where the home was located and found it a little tricky to find the next time. A 4-wheel drive car is a must and hopefully you know how to drive a standard. Lynne was very easy to work with an very accommodating. This was the best vacation we have ever been on. Thanks!!!!!

beautiful jungle house with spectacular views!

  • 5 of 5
We were lucky to spend a few days in Bosque en el Cielo. Great spacious house. The master bedroom is surrounded by windows, with a great view. Very quiet and serene and full of light.
Dominical is down the hill if you need to buy groceries or go to a restaurant or go to the beach. Otherwise it was nice to relax on the infinity pool or on the terrace listening to the birds and animals. The pics dont do justice to the real beauty of this property. Would love to rent it again in the future!

Killer Views

  • 5 of 5
Our group, 3 couples in our 50’s & 60’s, stayed in this villa in September. Lynne, the owner, was so easy to work with and always responded promptly to our emails and answered all our endless questions. We booked online and paid through VRBO, and all was handled effortlessly and efficiently.
We arrived over an hour late (mudslide on the road between San Jose and San Isidro) and way after dark but Jose was still patiently waiting for us exactly where we were told he would be. We did call to let him know we were running late because of the slide ad he was very understanding and told us to take our time.
The drive up to the house is very steep but the road is good (it had rained like crazy before we got there but no problems) - you will still want to have a 4WD vehicle. There was one place that was kind of washed out and it appeared that a tree had just been cleared from the road but that was the only issue.
The villa is beautiful, very private and secluded, but the best part was the outdoor space, pool, and the view. If we were at the house, we were outside! It has has 3 large bedrooms, 2 downstairs, with the master upstairs, and each has its own bath. Kitchen, living, and dining room are all downstairs and we were pleasantly surprised to find that we had eggs, bread, coffee, juice, and milk in the refrigerator. Very nice touch since we arrived so late! Some of the windows just had screens (no glass) so you could fall asleep to the sounds of the jungle (or rain, since we were there during “green” season) at night or the birds waking you up in the morning and I loved that. We saw toucans, aracari’s, and even a sloth, but, sadly, no monkeys.
We went on a couple of tours while we were there – Bahia Adventures Whale/Dolphin watching tour and El Santuario Canopy Adventure for zip lining. Loved both of them and wouldn’t hesitate to refer them to anyone. Guys at both places were amazing and we all had a great time.
As much fun as we had getting out and seeing the sites, it was still really nice to come home to our beautiful villa. Amazing views, comfortable, and an owner that was accessible and very easy to work with. I highly recommend

A terrific location, beautiful ocean view

  • 5 of 5
The house was great. Clean and well cared for. Maid service was good. Daily pool service. The house is up in the hills with a terrific view of the ocean. It was a treat to sit in the pool and enjoy the sunset every night as it went down over the Pacific. The house is surrounded by wildlife. Common sites include white face monkeys and plenty of toucans. Would definitely stay there again.

Amazing vistas and accommodations

Beautiful home above the hills overlooking the ocean. Sunsets were spectacular. Road to the house is breathtaking. 4 wheel drive a must. So worth the adventure though. Huge bedrooms and well equipped kitchen. Walks were so amazing seeing gorgeous flowers, trees and plants. Many beautiful birds and wildlife. Large numbers of butterfly's. Outdoor kitchen was fantastic. We lived in the pool. Loved our stay. Very private setting.
