Casa cielo es simplemente hermosa, es espaciosa, se encuentra rodeada de naturaleza, posee muy buena ubicación (a 30 minutos de la Fortuna de San Carlos ) y cerca de ella se puede disfrutar de pozas naturales que vale la pena visitar.

Curt es un excelente anfitrión y Hellen es una chef impresionante, sus comidas son exquisitas, la forma en que ambos atienden a los huéspedes es espectacular.

Definitivamente recomiendo Casa Cielo y espero volver muy pronto.

This place is INCREDIBLE. if you get the chance to stay here, you absolutely have to. It’s even better than the pictures, homemade meals were delicious, so beautiful, spacious, and secluded. You will love it as much as we did. Cannot recommend this more!!!

One of the best Airbnb's we've stayed at! Kurt was by far the best host we've ever had! The space was beautifully set in the mountains outside of La Fortuna. Town was a 30 minute drive. Kurt took us on a private hike to an awesome waterfall on his property. He also provided us with free range chickens that we cooked for dinner. The breakfast the cooks made were delicious! We're thinking of making an annual trip to this Airbnb and Costa Rica! USE WAZE!!!

As I took my first view of the interior of the house as I walked through the doorway, I couldn’t help but feel a smile crept onto my lips, amazed that THIS was really the place I would be staying at for the next few days. It’s exactly like the photos, but SO MUCH BETTER. And bigger. But the house itself pales in comparison to the breathtaking view of the lake and woods through the glass walls of the house. Almost every panoramic window opens completely up, which is how we spent every evening after activities. We just turned out the lights and sat in our locally made, wood-and-leather rocking chairs on the back porch overlooking the lake. Rainstorms? Even better. Clear skies? We got to see toucans. Don’t worry about the ‘no AC’ thing, it was not an issue. Helen is an excellent chef who makes breakfast every morning for you, and lunch or dinner upon request (brush up on your Spanish though, she doesn’t speak any English). She is also the sweetest person you’ll ever meet. If I ever come back to Costa Rica, I will definitely be staying longer here. Trust me, you WANT to stay here. Sure you can stay at a flashy resort, but you can do that at home guys. You want a true Costa Rican experience? Stay in the rainforest on a lake with Curt and Daniela. Seriously. Stay here.

The house is picture perfect. Expect 3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths. The location is remote, but the time estimates listed are accurate, about 5-8 minutes to the next store or restaurant. The road is rough but passable in a normal vehicle (SUV or Truck recommended, but not required). No problem with the bugs. No mosquitoes, you are in the forest, but the ecosystem is very well balanced. The breakfast is great and Helen is very accommodating to schedule.

Very cool property and surrounding land. This is about 30 to 40 min away from all the major arenal excursions you may want to do, so keep that in mind. The host is very hospitable and has a wonderful story about the property and the surrounding land.

All the reviews are spot on. Curt is an amazing host with a vast knowledge about the area. His support group was amazing. Helen's cooking was fantastic with great variety and simple freshness. Jack took care of all of our adventuring and followed up almost daily for our response.

Curts place is absolutely amazing and beautiful! Helena is a great cook and we enjoyed dinner and breakfast from her. Curt connects you with the local tour agencies so you can get the best out of your stay and he checks in daily to make sure that everything is going great. Overall a great stay, would definitely recommend and would come back the next time i come to Costa Rica 😊

The place was gorgeous and very private. We enjoyed walking around the grounds and my daughter loved feeding the fish. Place was clean and helens cooking was amazing as well. It was a nice combination of having your own space but also being catered for. Thanks for letting us stay.

Great place to stay within driving distance to La Fortuna. Plenty of privacy within the private rainforest. Curt is a wonderful host! Breakfast was amazing, and his preservation and redevelopment efforts are fascinating.

Curt's house is amazing and unlike any other place we have stayed! Highly recommend to a group of friends or family. It is off the beaten path (recommend at least a front wheel drive SUV or 4x4) but close enough for La Fortuna activities (about 30-40 min drive). The surrounding property is gorgeous and there is a large reserve west of the property in the Children's Eternal Forest. It is one of the bet nights of sleep I have had in some time. The beds are also very comfortable. Helen's breakfast, baked goods and dinners were made with love and delicious. In retrospect we should have just had all dinners with Helen (no La Fortuna restaurant can compete). She kept the house extremely clean and will replace linens and towels as needs which is a huge plus given how humid it can be. Helen even insisted on doing our laundry after they got dirty doing rafting, canyoning, and hiking. Curt was gone during our visit but he took 15 min to call me from his vacation and provide recommendations for the area. Best Airbnb experience in some time.

Curt and his staff are absolutely great. Local knowledge and wonderful meals were provided with great flavor and every meal was different. Curt's home is spacious and secluded so you feel like you're in your own resort.

This was our first time staying in an Airbnb. I can only hope that they are all this great. My girlfriend had never fished before and catching a tilapia off the deck was the highlight of her stay! LOL Mine was the meal that the chef prepared with the fillets. All of the food was so wholesome and delicious. We are from Costa Rica and never get real Maple syrup. I guess two words sum up our experience: PURA VIDA!
