About this home

**We value the health and safety of all of our guests. All frequently touched surfaces, knobs, faucets, and appliances are sanitized between stays. All bedding, towels, shams, plates, glassware, and utensils are freshly washed between stays.

- Pie in the Sky 2 is the perfect place for small families or group of friends. Each one of the 2 bedrooms has a comfortable queen size bed, A/C and private bathroom. Also a comfortable futon on the living room that opens to a double bed and sleeps 2 extra persons.

- The fully functional kitchen with granite counter tops is equipped with everything you need to prepare energizing breakfasts or delicious dinners.

- The views are simply spectacular, either if you are resting in the house, cooking steaks in the BBQ deck or swimming in spring fed pool & jacuzzi you have panoramic views of the Arenal lake and the volcano.

- THINGS TO DO: There are lots of tours to keep you entertained for days, Volcano hikes, Zip Lines, Hanging Bridges, ATV tours, Kayak and Paddle-board tours, Rainforest and Waterfall hikes, Horseback riding, Hot Springs, Wildlife watching tours and more. All of these are less than half an hour away from the house.

Our concierge is always available at our new and modern Welcome Center to help you book tours, find the best restaurants, book a massage and get the most out of your time in the area.

- GETTING AROUND: You will want a 4WD vehicle. The last drive up to the house is a steep, rocky road. When it rains it can get a little slippery. You will be a lot happier with a 4WD here and in most areas of Costa Rica. While there are a few things to see and a couple of restaurants within walking distance of the house, there are many activities that require a 10 to 45 minute drive. You will not be happy waiting for a cab to arrive either coming of going.

** Please notice: This house is part of a complex of 3 houses called Pie in the Sky that share the common areas like swimming pool, jacuzzi, BBQ and Laundry facilities.

    Breathtaking and luxurious

    We have traveled all over the world, and have never had the breathtaking views that we experienced here! The landscaping, and property was beautifully manicured. The house was so nice, and clean. Agustin was available in a moments notice to help us, and even helped us plan our trip. The only reason I didn't give all 5 stars was because the kitchen was a little difficult to use for cooking meals. It has plenty of pots and pans, silverware, and dishes, but the other necessities for cooking ar lacking. For instance, we didn't have a wine opener. No worries, though, because there are plenty of terrific places to eat in El Castillo. Don't miss howlers, La ventanita, and Fusion for great meals! Over all, this was one of the most beautiful places that we've stayed to date! Hope we can come back again!

    Most beautiful views, quiet town.

    This property had the most breathtaking view. The nearby restaurants are good and all activities are super close by. Hope to be back one day.

    Amazing views!

    Our family of 4 enjoyed our stay at Pie in the Sky 2. The house is about 30 minutes from La Fortuna but we like being away from town in the quiet. The views of the lake and volcano are so pretty. We had rain several days but still enjoyed the scenery. We used the hot tub several times and sat in the Eagles Nest. There is a lot to do around the area, too. The drive up to the house is very steep but we did not have any issues in our small sedan. Thanks for sharing this amazing house!

    Wonderful Place

    My wife and two daughters had a wonderful and peaceful stay at Pie in the sky. Agustin was very helpful and knowledgeable of the local area and offered things to see and do. The Howler Bar right below the was handy for a quick bite and a cold beverage. as said before the road is quite steep but paved and you might like a all wheel drive. I would definitely stay there again and will stay for a longer time to take in all there is to see. Thanks Agustin.

    Epic Views at Pie in the Sky 2

    We loved our time at Pie 2. The views are absolutely stunning and the entire property is amazing. We woke each morning to only the sounds of birds and howler monkies. No other noise, none. The weather was wonderfully cool with a few brief rain showers. The property itself is a masterpiece with three rental units of various sizes which share a common jacuzzi, a beautiful pool, a grill with a deck for dining and another, higher observation deck for even more magnificent views. It was very handy having an on-site laundry, and the property was meticulously maintained throughout our visit. The Wifi/Internet was remarkably reliable given the somewhat remote location, and the small town of El Castillo is just a few minutes away with a market that provided everything that we needed and a few small restaurants. We cooked most of our meals in the well-equipped kitchen in Pie 2, It has a huge refrigerator/freezer and a propane stove/oven. Agustin (the property manager) was available daily for any questions, and we stopped at his office at the bottom of the hill daily to fill our ice chest before heading out for more adventures. Did I mention the views? Breathtaking. We will definitely return to Pie in the Sky when we are in this area again.

    Beautiful vistas from a lovely cabin

    Wow- the views from this place are absolutely spectacular. We got up each morning to watch sunrise and were blessed with a view cloudless mornings. The layout of the house is not ideal for 2 groups. The living room is small without much room for lounging. We spent most of our time out and about exploring the area so it wasn't too big of an issue. We stayed there 5 nights and never got used to the steep driveway! Agustin did a great job managing the property, got us set up with a great tour, and responded to our questions and needs quickly.

    The view from this property cannot be captured in photographs. The location is very convenient to restaurants and endless activities surrounding Arenal. The properties are meticulously maintained and very well appointed. The beds are less than comfy (preferred the futon), but everything else was so magical its hard to cite anything negative, still five stars for us. We extended our stay a couple extra days and still didn't want to leave. We'll never forget our trip to this place - thank you to Augustine for all the helpful information.

    We loved our stay in Costa Rica! The views were amazing. The rental was what we were looking for out by the volcano and lake. We would stay here again.

    A Slice of Heaven!

    The pictures do not do justice to the beauty of this property! The views are simply amazing! Pie in the Sky 2 was very nice and accommodated 2 couples nicely. All of the recommendations suggested by Agustine were perfect. Where else can you wake up to the sounds of Howler Monkeys and a variety of birds? The pool and hot tub were nice. Our only regret is not staying here longer.
