Rainbow Valley Lodge is located 2 minutes from Santa Elena, Monteverde by car or 15 minutes walking. It sits on the side of a mountain which is part of the three-wattled bellbird reserve and looks over a deep valley with views to the Monteverde mountains and Children's Forest on the other side. Located on the edge of the forest you have complete privacy and an incredible tree-top view. A wildlife magnet, this mountain allows you to view various bird species, both up close, as well as flying high over the valley in front of you. Also the abundance of fruit trees surrounding the rooms attracts (in season) birds, Coatis, and white faced monkeys. Grey foxes can also be seen right outside your room! (since we have no animal training background, viewing animals is all based on luck). Rainbows can also appear in the valley, hence the name.
The rooms are built to N. American standards. We started with only two rooms however now have a new "Family" cabin available. You can be assured of privacy, not only due to the lack of rooms but also because the rooms are located a minimum of 150 meters from any neighbor or road. The only noise you experience is that of nature.
Each room is nicely decorated with ceiling and side wall lighting and reading lamps for the bed and bedside table. A fully tiled bath with hot water to the sink, and a GAS fired hot water heater assures plenty of hot water when you return from hiking through the Cloud Forest. There is a lighted parking lot just up from the rooms.
The lodge is perfect for cozy romantic getaways or for anyone wanting to enjoy privacy and nature at the same time. The price of the lodge compares to the lower end hotels available in or near town however without dust or noise and with much higher quality. We think that you will agree that there is no lodging in Monteverde that is a better value.
The Lodge has two rooms plus the new Family cabin:
Lower room: This room features a private covered porch in front overlooking the forest edge. There is one double bed and one single bed. A corner unit offers baggage storage and a place to hang clothes. In addition there is a coffee maker with free Monteverde coffee as well as tea.
The upper room is decorated in Mexican style with stucco walls, quarry tile, and Mexican wall hangings and paintings. One new Queen size bed. Dining table with two chairs and also reading lamps on the bed and bed side table. There is also a wall unit for bags and hanging clothes.
The upper room is larger, with a fully glass-enclosed balcony extending the length of the room. (click on extra pictures below) The sliding windows can be opened to enjoy the breeze and the tree tops. This balcony features an incredible view over the tree tops to the mountains on the other side of the valley and faces east for a great sunrise. You can sit all day and spot many varieties of birds and in season the monkeys will climb the fruit trees right outside your window searching for fruit. In addition, at the end of the balcony there is a small kitchen area with tiled countertop, sink, microwave, small refrigerator, toaster, dishes and coffee maker with coffee. You can take advantage of the kitchen area and make a nice breakfast of toast, yogurt, fruit etc. All the while watching the forest. You simply can not find a better room than this in Monteverde: even at twice the price!!
The new "Family" cabin has a separate bedroom with queen size bed, small bath and a full size sink with hot and cold water with makeup mirror and light. Also a closet unit. The main room features a Murphy style queen bed and a single bed in an alcove. Also there is a second small bath plus a kitchen and table. Nicely designed, combining rustic slate floors, and exposed tree trunk columns with a more modern vaulted ceiling with plenty of recessed lighting. There is a covered patio in front with furniture and table and a view straight out to the woods with bird activity and the occasional visits from mammals. The cabin will sleep 5. For groups needing to sleep up to 10 people you can take all three units and have the whole place to yourselves!
