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

Incredible private getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent the last couple of days of our honeymoon here and it was INCREDIBLE! The drive up is a little intimidating at first but you get comfortable very quickly and the views on the way up make it totally worth it. Rodney was incredible with filling the fridge with necessities, scheduling whale watching and surf lessons and the beautiful flower arrangement he created for us as a "Congratulations gift". Lynne gave us every detail we needed for the area, we fell in love with this particular area after traveling up and down the coast. The house was BEAUTIFUL and so private...way bigger than expected but absolutely no complaints! We loved seeing all the critters roam around outside the house. I will definitely be staying at this peaceful getaway again very soon!

Great property--would return

  • 4 of 5

The view is even better than the pictures and the house is extremely comfortable. Even the jungle views in the back are spectacular. There is no dishwasher, so when I return I will probably opt for the daily housekeeping service to make it more relaxing. The grill is brilliant and got a lot of use. There was a minor issue with the pool which was quickly addressed by the staff, all of whom by the way were super responsive, friendly and thorough. Lynne, the owner had a fantastic response time and was a pleasure to interact with every step of the way.

Home In Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We are in love with Costa Rica, Domenical and this beautiful home. To say that it was magical would be an understatement.

The house is beautiful in pictures and even more spectacular in person. We have hundreds of pictures of the sunset from the deck because it is the perfect spot to watch the day end. The house is stocked with anything you need to make meals at home, the beds are comfortable and most importantly the rain forest surrounding the house is everything you would imagine. We saw toucans from the bedroom window, butterflies in the trees and frogs around the infinity pool.

The house manager, Rodney was so helpful in arranging activities for us. We did the horseback trip to Nayuacca, surf lessons and the zipline! Every activity exceeded our expectations in terms of value for the price and bucketlist-worthiness. The people we encountered on these excursions were among the nicest we've met in our journeys abroad and at home. It is abundantly clear that Pura Vida is so much more than a slogan on tshirts. These people really seem to know what the key to happiness is.

Rodney and his sweet wife made dinner for us on our first night and it was exactly what we all needed after a delayed red eye and a long day of getting lost on the crazy Costa Rican roads!

Lynn's guidebook proved to be useful again and again and we used it often for recommendations of things to do and places to eat. We had dinner twice at Por Que No and loved every moment of it!

We have stayed at many rentals over the years across the globe and the attention to detail and responsiveness she provided went above and beyond in every way. Thank you Lynn from the bottom of our hearts for giving us such a special experience.

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!
