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 #3 is a 5 bedrooms house with same number of bathrooms and it sleeps up to 15 people. For your comfort all the bedrooms have air-conditioned, custom-made black out draperies, hotel like amenities and have access to the front terrace where the views are simple stunning.

- The large kitchen with fine wood cabinets, granite counter tops and all the appliances is perfect to cook tasty meals for large parties.

- For your enjoyment the spring fed pool and jacuzzi are just steps away from the house, and so is the BBQ Ranch and Laundry facilities.



- 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.

    5 start pie in the sky

    Check in was easy. Yes it is a steep hill to the top but any vehicle will Make it as long as it is not raining. Augusta was welcoming. The location is about 30-40 min from la fortuna on a now paved road. Pie in the ski is beautiful. Rooms are great for couples or mixed families with kids. Bring bug spray!! And spray yourself all The time. Beds are comfy. Plenty of hot water. I do wish they would clean the bathrooms daily as an included price. Just to throw out the garbage and wash the towels. Breakfast was made by two lovely ladies daily and was amazing. Kitchen could have more bowls and Tupaware for left overs. And ice was available from the bar down below. Could be more spices and condiments available as well as we had to purchase everything. No store close by so buy everything before you head to the house. All in all Was beautiful. We would come back again.

    Wouldn’t miss this experience! Best house and perfect hosts

    A group of 8 of us stayed at Pie in the Sky 3 and we couldn’t have been happier! Great accommodations, perfect location and incredible views. Majestic Properties staff was their to help us find grocery stores, book excursions and help us in any way. We loved being able to get to know other guests at the other villas.

    Arenal stay

    This was our second trip to Arenal and this time needed more space due to larger party. House was very nice, clean and excellent service by property manager. Grounds are shared with two other units so not completely private. All in all great place to stay with large groups or several families.

    Great Location and Beautiful Views

    We stayed a Pie in The Sky 3 and there was lots of space. The house was very clean and the bedrooms and bathrooms were comfortable for all. The pool and jacuzzi was clean and very nice. Agustin was very helpful during our stay and when we checked in. Provided a great tour of the house and the property. We recommend it and would stay here again.

    Amazing value for an exceptional property

    This property is great for families. It's five suites, and each of the rooms is well appointed with large bathrooms. The beds are fine, but really the property is amazing. The whole construction, location, and layout are incredible. It really is one of the best values we've ever found using VRBO and we've used it in many countries. The steep driveway takes you up to what amounts to a small resort with three houses sharing a common area. When you get there, it's the beautiful details - the stone walls, wood ceilings in the gazebo, etc. that really sets this place apart. It's a 30 minute drive to LaFortuna with plenty to do in between the house and town. The views are breathtaking. We will recommend it to others. It's a great value.

    Beautiful property, comfortable house

    We had a great stay at Casa Colibri. The property is exactly as described and was the perfect landing spot for our Costa Rica vacation. Conveniently located to the beach and Manuel Antonio. The property is stunning. We were visited each day by monkeys, toucans, igunas and more. Scenic views of the ocean from the hammock deck and a lovely pool made us want to stick around each morning and late-afternoon. The house was clean and comfortable and was cleaned each day, along with the free daily laundry service. Communication with Susan, the concierge, was quick and easy and always helpful. Five stars!

    Wonderful Property for Our Family

    We had a family of 11 with two grandparents, two sets of parents, and five kids who all had plenty of space and privacy. We were also able to comfortably gather together for meals. The view from the house and pool are spectacular of both the volcano and the lake. The location was terrific, too. Although not especially close (about 20 minutes) to La Fortuna, we found that most of the activities (hikes, zip lines, canopy tours, etc.) that we did were closer to the house than to La Fortuna. It was a perfect spot for us.
