Amber and Gregory went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and welcomed. I especially appreciated all the thoughtful touches that show how much care went into making the space so enjoyable. My 7 year and I had a spectacular time exploring and relaxing, I only wish we could have stayed more than 2 nights. I am already planning a trip back and am so glad I discovered this peaceful paradise. The hot tub was amazing, the nature walks were gorgeous and the space was incredibly well equipped. Already planning a trip back!

We absolutely loved our stay at Amber’s place. So much care was put into making it an Incredible experience for us and our daughter. There are lots of places to sit and relax and also games for us to play and she kindly baked us muffins in the morning and even made a scavenger hunt for our daughter. It is clear that so much love has gone into the creation of this magical retreat. It was like dream like.

Fantastic find!!
I can’t say enough good things about Sanctuary Cielo and Amber. This camp spot is one of the most amazing I’m sure you’ll find. The trees are beautiful, and there are hiking trails and super cool spots to check out on the property. Beds outside, a hot tub, and even a treehouse! We didn’t even feel the need to leave. We stayed there for the weekend and had so much fun. Check it out!

We had a memorable stay at Sanctuary Cielo. The property is fun to explore. Amber made it extra special for our daughter, with a special scavenger hunt, lots of books, activities, and games. We enjoyed the hot tub under the stars and all the unique spaces to relax and appreciate nature. We also enjoyed the fresh baked muffins in the morning, refrigerator with treats, and special touches for my birthday. Amber had lots of recommendations for things to do in the area, but we opted to stay and enjoy the experience. Be aware that the terrain is steep (walking sticks are provided), and be prepared for the insects that accompany any forest setting. Overall it was a great experience and we had a great time!

Perfect weekend Recharge/Relax
I loved the campsite and all the various spots around the property with very cute names. The bed in the woods, watching stars in the night while laying on the trampoline, just relaxing in the hammock around the cathedral were just some of the highlights of the visit.

Really well thought out campsite. Super cool areas to relax, eat, sleep. Deer in the campsite made it so peaceful. The hosts Amber and Greg were awesome. Highly recommend this space.
