Gorgeous Views, Well Eqiuped House

  • 5 of 5
Our group of 12 (5 adults and 7 kids) stayed at the house in August. We also had the 2 person round house outside the main house. The rooms are large, the indoor living and eating space is comfortable, and the entire house is surrounded by a porch with chairs and hammocks which we used daily. The kitchen was well equipped with a good, strong, gas stove for cooking.

The driveway to the house is steep. There was one day when our van driver could not make it up and we had to meet him at the bottom of the driveway. The road from La Fortuna to the property is long and unpaved, so just be prepared to add this commute time to your daily touring. That being said, it is lovely to start and end your day on this lovely property. One day we just stayed at the house and did the rainforest walk which can be reached from the property.

Nancy was an absolute pleasure to deal with. I knew when I booked with her, just by her manner, that our reservation was solid, that her property would be in great shape, and that she ran a professional operation. She even lent us a portable crib that her grandchildren use when they visit. Her staff came quickly when we had questions or needed assistance. My only suggestion is that they add more lighting inside the house. It was a bit dark for my taste.

Enjoy this comfortable property.

Lovely, Peaceful, Can't Be Beat

This beautiful retreat is several miles down a dirt road. But the good news is that many of the activities you might want to do in the Arenal area are also down that road: Arenal National Park, Sky Trek Adventures, Rancho Margo sustainable living farm, Arenal Observatory Lodge, and so on and so forth. The nearby village of El Castillo is really nice and has several good dining options.

Majestic Lodge (the bed and breakfast at the bottom of the hill - managed by the same people) itself is simply beautiful and has lovely views of Arenal Volcano. It is truly a beautiful, peaceful place at a reasonable rates. Nancy, who is the manager for both the houses and the lodge, is just terrific. She is always just a phone call away and willing to make reservations for anything you might want to do. Just tell her what you want to do and she'll basically make sure it happens.

Now for the house: at the top of their hill (just up from the Lodge) is a whole other compound with Pie In the Sky (a two-bedroom house for rent), a larger house with several bedrooms and a living room, and two one-room casitas with private baths. Perched on the mountaintop, we were in a paradise with a rainforest behind us and facing a gorgeous view of Lake Arenal. It was amazing. There is a gazebo for watching the sunset or the forest. There is a swimming pool up there and facilities for grilling. It was just wonderful.

Nancy, the manager, could not have been more responsive or easier to deal with. Every time I emailed her before we came – she got right back to me – cheerfully and quickly! Thank you, Nancy, for all that you did to make our trip such a success.

Paradise in Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4 stayed at "Pie-in-the-Sky" from 6/26-6/30. What a beautiful location. The view and the solitude at this place just can't be beat. You can sit out under a gazebo by the pool and watch the clouds roll over the volcano and the lake, all while enjoying the peace and quiet. We did hear howler monkeys in the mornings and there were always many different types of birds. The home is very nice with beautiful Guanacaste wood cabinets, furniture, trim and doors. The kitchen is very large and well appropriated with everything you might need. The two bedrooms each have their own split AC systems so we were always comfortable.
Nancy was very helpful at arranging a lot of the aspects of our trip. She arranged our rental car (Adobe Rental Car), a private driver (Platinum Tours) as well as reservations to the Sky Trek Zip Line and the horseback ride with Lelander to the private waterfall. Both of these are minutes away from the property and I highly recommend them. We have two teenagers (17 and 14) and they both loved these as well. For those of you who like a little exercise I recommend making a visit to the Arenal Observatory Lodge for the hike to Cerro Chato. This is about a 4 hour hike up to a water filled volcanic crater that you can swim in.
The driveway to the property is steep and if you have a standard transmission get ready for some excitement. I did stall out several times but eventually got the hang of it. Be sure to check out "Howler's Bar and Grill" which is just at the base of the driveway. We were able to enjoy beer and burgers while watching Costa Rica get one of their World Cup victories in soccer. Do your main grocery shopping in La Fortuna before heading out here because it is long drive back (30-40 minutes each way on bumpy roads). There is a small store just down the road that has a lot of basic things in case you forget anything at the supermarket.

This place is amazing. Probably one of the most spectacular locations in the Arenal area. We had five in our party and it worked out great. Morning coffee by the pool with the kids swimming, howler monkeys howling and birds of all types flying by is not to be missed. Highly recommend four wheel drive for the piece of mind. Nancy is great and very helpful. Amazing views of volcano and lake. Close to sky trek and arenal park - both should also be on your itinerary.

Enjoyed every minute of it!

My husband and I stayed in the "Cottage in the Sky" for almost a week and didn't want to leave! I don't have 'one' favorite thing to say about this location, I have many. The sounds of the birds in the morning, the smells of the flowers that surround the whole property, the humming birds darting in and out of the flowery hedges, the beautiful wood work, the cool pool, the ever changing sky around the volcano, and the lake as it changes colors with the sky. And the Manager and her family were terrific! What ever we wanted to do, they planned for us, gave us directions, and sent us on our way. We went zip lining, hiking, horseback riding and to the hot springs. I have to say that the horseback ride with our local host Leelander was my favorite. He took us on a 3 hr ride over the mountains and through a couple rivers and around the bottom of the lake..... what views. Besides, we go to see a new born foal, only a few hours old. The Manager and her family were awesome and made us feel so welcome. When we left, it felt as if we were leaving behind old friends. I would recommend this place to anyone and would return soon if I could!

Basically the most gorgeous view you will ever see

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed here for a few days during our honeymoon. The view of the lake and volcano are breathtaking to the point of being beyond description. I can not tell you how amazingly gorgeous this location is. We stayed in the smaller cottage (fair warning, it is very small, but it has everything you need and in La Fortuna you won't be spending a whole lot of time inside) and both buildings are beautifully made and the stonework including the pool are amazing. The managers were so wonderful and took care of every little need we had. They recommended activities that were perfect, and sent us horseback riding through the hills to a beautiful waterfall, which was one of the most amazing experiences I've ever had. The owner of the ranch they sent us to has even become a friend I think will be lifelong for us. The internet was not working properly one day and the manager (who assured us that there usually aren't any problems) went to extreme lengths to fix the issue for us. I don't have anything negative to say at all, but be prepared for the fact that the driveway is VERY steep. My wife and I travel extensively in Latin America and we rarely stay in the same place twice because we like new experiences, but this is a place we will definitely go again. One last note, the restaurant right at the bottom of the hill, howlers, is one of the best burger joints (if not the best) I have ever eaten at, and the owner is a just plain cool guy. Go here, and have fun!

Amenities at the Majestic Lodge are not for use of the private rental homes.
