Gary and Josanne are lovely hosts and have created a wonderful retreat at Poco Cielo. The cabin we stayed in (#5) is just as depicted in the pictures - wonderfully clean and equipped nicely for a stay. We went out to breakfast daily, as that fit our routine best, but you could buy a few things and enjoy a simple breakfast or lunch in the cabin. Gary and Josanne are just the right mix of helpful and respectful of your privacy - they know how to make you feel at home without being intrusive. We will surely be back one day!

What a nice little oasis just outside of the city. We had a great little casita exactly as shown in the pictures. Gary greeted us and made us feel right at home from the moment we got there. The pool looking out over the jungle was great and really fun for the kids.

Poco Cielo is a perfect destination for a "get away from it all" vacation. It was serene and beautiful, and the cabin was lovely. The pool and outdoor kitchen area were amazing, and Gary & Josanne were perfect hosts. We were there with our young children and our awesome hosts even went to the trouble of getting us some English-language entertainment for them, as well as a port-a-crib. I hope we didn't disturb the peace too much! We're back in the Boston snow now, and still daydreaming about our dream trip to Costa Rica. Great experience.

Our family of four stayed at Poco Cielo on the last night of our Costa Rican holiday. What a wonderful spot! Next time, we will book the cabin for more than just one night. Twenty-five minutes from the airport but a world apart. Clean cabin, lots of hot water, beautiful pool and gazebo, plenty of towels, close to great restaurants and lovely landscaped grounds. A perfect place for a family reunion because it's possible to rent all the cabins and have the place virtually to yourselves. Gary and Josanne were called out-of-town on a family matter before we arrived, but they made arrangements for their good friends, Julie and Paul, to greet us and act as our hosts. Julie and Paul were amazing hosts! They gave us a tour of the grounds and great advice for dinner options. So friendly! We ended up spending an hour sitting outside on the porch talking with them about our mutual experiences living as expats, travel stories and life in general! We had a great stay on our last night! Thank you!

A "Little Piece of Heaven" is a perfect description for our experience at Poco Cielo. This was an excellent base camp for the 9 days of day trips we planned in the region. Josanne and Gary were both truly gracious hosts. They were very attentive to our needs yet provided plenty of personal space and freedom in this small, intimate and beautiful compound. Sincerely, Joe and Janice Saint Louis, Missouri USA

Gary, our host was an amazing help, before and during our time in Atenas. His location is definitely "A Little Piece of Heaven." The environment is clean, beautiful, and in a nice, quiet location, yet close enough to town to make the walk. It's mostly down hill to town, and then we took a cab for approximately $4 to return the uphill way. The people in town were very friendly and the food is great. Gary has a nice packet of information that provided a map and good ideas for activities and food.

Our stay at Poco Cielo was wonderful. The cabin was spotless and was cleaned throughout our week long stay. Towels were refreshed without our asking and our hosts, Gary and Josanne were extremely helpful without being intrusive. The setting was beautiful and tranquil. I would highly recommend Poco Cielo to anyone staying in the Atenas area.
