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.
Richard was very nice and helpful. He told us where to go and gave us a voucher for a 10% discount on the canopy tour. The house is well located as it is quite and has a really nice view over the Golf of Nicoya.
Richard made us feel right at home welcoming us to the gorgeous house with a smile. He provided us with great tips, discounts and maps with local knowledge. Without his input our trip to Monteverde would not have been half as good!!! His help was invaluable!
Richards place is a large house with the best view in Monteverde of Montoya peninsula. The place is located a little bit out of town, but with a car, using taxis or a 30min walk it was not a problem. He has a large property which you can explore all to yourself. It was clean and had all items required for your stay and a pong table for entertainment!!
I would definitely recomme
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour chez richard. Il a toujours été ou disponible pour nous. La maison est très agréable avec une magnifique vue sur le golf de Nicoya. Nous avons trouvé tout le confort nécessaire dans la maison avec des matelas de très bonnes qualités, ce qui nous as permis de faire de très bonnes nuits . nous vous recommandons vivement cette endroit magnifique. A ne pas rater
Our accommodations at Rainbow House were clean, quiet and comfortable. We arrived in low season so we had the house to ourselves. Richard was able to recommend restaurants and activities in Monteverde and made sure we had everything we needed. The house is not really walkable into town, so it is helpful to have a vehicle or there are taxis available. There is a little bakery up the street that seems nice and we also shopped at the grocery store for a few meals since the restaurants can be a bit pricey. Hot showers, cold water everywhere else, Wi-Fi, local phone, great view.
Richard made the effort to come and meet me in the town to help me find the house. The house itself is large and the view is beautiful. I had to cancel my second night for alternate reasons but the house itself comes with everything you might need and there are small hikes around the property. I think it would have been a better experience to stay there with friends.
