Rainbow House was a great place to spend our stay in Monteverde, and Richard was a wonderful host! The house is very roomy and comfortable. Richard gave us advice on attractions and restaurants in Monteverde, and was even able to book us on a hanging bridges and zipline tour with a discount. When we had a small problem with the plumbing, he came over within minutes to fix it. If I am ever back in Monteverde, Rainbow House will definitely be my top choice for lodging!
The Rainbow House is a great place to stay for a visit to Monteverde. The house itself is spacious, extremely clean, in a perfect location and has a wonderful view. Richard is very helpful in giving detailed directions as well as great recommendations. He will even book zip lining and other tours/excursions for you. The zip line he booked for us was super fun and a lot of bang for your buck.
Richard's Rainbow House is on the on the outskirts of St Elena and nearby Monteverde. This is a very busy tourist area, but Richard gave us the all his local knowledge and sent us to out-of-the way places with few people, making the bird-watching and orchid gardens that much more spectacular. We saw so much, even got a glimpse of the elusive tayra, that would not have happened on the well-beaten tourist routes.
Richard's enthusiasm at our list of sightings shows how much he loves the area.
This place is a party house, with 3 bedrooms, big kitchen and even a Ping-Pong table, so bring your friends; With several friends or couples this place would be a blast and an incredible value. Great views of the Golf of Nicoya, and at 4600 feet the temperature is a wonderful relief from the coastal and lowland heat.
Richard made us feel completely welcome!!! We really had a great time at Rainbow House !!! The pictures and the description of the house are accurate, and all beds and bathrooms were extremely clean! The location was phenomenal given the view we had and how quiet and peaceful is the area !!! I would definitely recommend this house for a nice, chill, peaceful vacation in Monteverde!!!! It's close to most attractions and tours, and Richard's recommendations helped us get around in the town !!!!
Richard was a great host! Even before we came to his house he gave us a lot of information of things we could do around the area and was helpful to talk to our driver to get directions to his house. Once we got there he showed us around the house and gave us a map of the area. He told us that he would help as much or as little as we wanted. He gave us great tips on activities to do for the day and even helped us schedule ATV and Ziplining tours. His house is great for groups, we were able to cook lunch and dinner there and relax after a great day of exploring. I would definitely recommend anybody to stay there. It is easy to get around the town walking or taking a cheap taxi, but having a car would be even better. If you are looking for a place to stay in Monteverde, this is it!
What an amazing view! The pictures don't do this place justice because it over looks the whole valley with great sun rises and sun sets. It is a perfect location to see Monte Verde and the surrounding areas. We walked to most of the tours and is only a 10-15 min drive to the actual park.
Richard keeps the house VERY clean and is very welcoming, we would definitely stay here again.
Lastly ask Richard for directions, there was some road work going on that he will let you know and maps don't give you the best route.
