The house of Richard was great with a splendid view. Richard gave well advice of what to do en where to go. In the house was everything we needed and the kids loved the table tennis on the loft.
Richard immediately responded with a welcome email when he accepted our request. Although he didn't get back to us on email as promised, as soon as I called him, he sent excellent and detailed directions (so if you don't get an email just give him a call). He was the perfect host. He met us and gave detailed information about all the places we could go with excellent recommendations. His place was clean and better than pictured with amazing views and lots of beds and hot showers. The ping pong table, hammock, and beautiful lights were very nice extras. Our host left us on our own until we were ready to leave and came promptly to help us check out. This would be a great place for a family or a group, but for our family of 3 it was perfect also.
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 !!!!
Loved the house, it was clean and comfortable. Richard was friendly and available to us for anything we needed. Also gave us tips for budget friendly things to do in the area. Enjoyed our stay here
