About this listing
This room features a small covered porch in front overlooking the forest edge and bit across the deep valley to the mountains on the other side. There is one queen bed and one single bed.
Located on the edge of the forest you have privacy and very little noise.
The forest setting allows you the opportunity to view various bird species, both up close, as well as flying high over the valley in front of you. Also the abundance of fruit trees surrounding the rooms attracts (in season) birds, Coatis, and white faced monkeys. (Since we have no animal training background, viewing animals is all based on luck).
Rainbows can also appear in the valley, hence the name.
You can be assured of privacy, not only due to the lack of rooms but also because the rooms are located a minimum of 150 meters from any neighbour and are well below the road level, although some outside noise can be heard depending on the direction of the wind.
Owner is on site and provides maps, local coupons, and info on local activities and things to do and where to shop and eat.

A corner unit offers baggage storage and a place to hang clothes. In addition there is a coffee maker with free Monteverde coffee and a small bar refrigerator. Windows with screens.
No rules really just that people staying are fairly independent and clean and respectful of the property and other guests. Owner lives on site and can provide lots of info on local attractions and some discounts as well. You will have a good experience if the weather cooperates.
Great host, great location, great place! Christian made us feel very welcome and answered all the questions we had about things to do in Monteverde. As he is (or was) a guide, he is very knowledgeable about attractions and activities. He recommended a great place to eat local food (Sabor Tico, in front of the football pitch) and booked for us a horseback tour. Very friendly and helpful, thanks a lot Christian!
Christian hat uns sehr freundlich und herzlich begrüßt und hat uns gleich gut beraten, was wir unternehmen könnten und hat sofort die Buchungen unserer gewünschten Aktivitäten übernommen. Man wird immer an der Unterkunft abgeholt. Das Zimmer war sauber und zweckmäßig mit einer gigantischen Aussicht. Es flog morgens sogar ein Tukan vorbei und ein Nasenbär besuchte uns ab und zu. Wir waren drei Nächte da, so hatten wir 2 ganze Tage, damit kommt man ganz gut zurecht. Weniger Tage würde ich nicht nehmen. Ich kann das Rainbow Valley Lodge sehr empfehlen und würde wieder hingehen.
The place is beautiful. It is not a luxury hotel, but, it is more than adequate. The room is basic, but has all that you will need (coffee maker, small fridge, microwave, hot water, comfortable bed, etc.). Christian and his wife, Hazel, are phenomenal hosts. I was a little nervous about leaving everything unplanned until we (my 8 year old daughter and me) arrived, but, Christian knows the area, knows the companies, knows the tours. He was able to recommend and book everything we wanted to do, often with discounts. They even helped with little things (superglue for my broken camera, how to use the buses, etc). Be sure to get a tour in Monteverde with Christian if you can; he is a wonderful guide. For this price, you can't beat it!
Christian was an amazing host, and the lower room at Rainbow Valley Lodge was incredible for our stay in Monteverde. The view from the room is gorgeous, and we were even lucky enough to have a troup of capuchin monkeys visit our porch on the last morning of our stay! The lodge is a short 2 minute drive / 10 minute walk from Santa Elena "downtown", and was very easy to find when we arrived. Christian is a great guy and arranged all our tours for us ahead of time, plus he gave great suggestions and tips for activities (he was a guide at Monteverde for years, so he really knows his stuff!). Overall we had a great time and can't thank Christian enough for all his help. Definitely would stay at Rainbow Valley again, book it!
Christian was an incredible host and staying at Rainbow Valley was amazing. The view is beautiful and Christian was very helpful in recommending places to see around the area. We are so glad we got to stay two nights here!!
The location is just perfect.
We had a room/house for two with a beautiful view over the forests.
The room was really nice with a fridge, a safe, an own balcony and a bathroom with hot water. Christian was so helpful and gave us a short introduction and recommendation of all possible tours. He also booked everything for us.
I definitely recommend this place. We had a great time :)
We loved our stay at the Rainbow Lodge. It was nice to have a front porch with a few microwave and a coffee pot. The place was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. It gets rave reviews for a reason. We were sorry it was only available for two nights.
