We were blown away by the view when we arrived. The owner & property manager met us nearby to guide us to the house. They were both very pleasant & accomodating. The owner actually moved out for the 3 days we were there so we could use the place. The only drawback was the lack of hot water, but the benefits totally outweighed that minor inconvenience. It was a bit windy while we were there, but it didn't rain until the night before we left. We hiked to visit 2 waterfalls, zip-lined, sight-seed, & ate at a few great places (Equus was the best). We also spent time at Playa Samara, but Alebrijes Cabins was much nicer & more comfortable. We hope to return to Costa Rica in 3 years & would love to stay there again.

We stayed for two weeks in late Oct/Nov. The house was spacious and the location was quiet and had beautiful views. Everything we needed was included and the laundry room was an extra bonus. It is on top of a hill and you will need a 4wd vehicle to get up the long, bumpy driveway. And, being on the hill, it was very windy during our stay. The house would be a great size for a family as it had two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a large kitchen. It had a nice fireplace, too, but it was way too windy for us to attempt to use it. It's also a very close drive to the lake if you want to park and walk around the shoreline and probably about 15 mins to Nuevo Arenal. Very, very pretty spot.

Wow & Amazing! Nothing else needs to be said. This is the second time I have enjoyed this home in the last two years, and plan to be a repeat customer again and again.. This beautiful home, "Villa Vagabundo," has everything you would want while on a vacation. Starting from spectacular views, to all the amenities you would need or want. I felt so at home and comfortable is this hillside home over looking Lake Arenal. Many day trips are within driving distance, but yet you feel "Worlds Away!" What a great experience!

We really enjoyed this beautiful home. The house is so much better then the pictures convey. The panoramic views are breathtaking and all the fun things we did, rappelling waterfalls, zip lines, volcano observing and horseback riding, were so convenient. Property manager, Laura, was a great help with everything we needed. We will definitely be back!

We loved staying at Villa Vagabundo in Arenal. The house is beautiful and there is a great view of the lake and the volcano. We would definitely stay there again.

We stayed here for two weeks with our three little girls and had a wonderful time. Our girls went to the local school, and were immersed in Spanish. The house is wonderfully relaxing – with a great deck, comfortable beds and captivating views. The local is central, in that there are also plenty of day trips. Finally, the Laura, the house manager, is most very helpful with any need. This is a great place to experience Costa Rica.

Well…if I want to be totally honest…from the moment we call to make the reservation and the lady that manages the place gave us the info of the place, to the moment we left the house to go to the airport and back to Canada…everything was extremely satisfying.The house could not be any better, the views from the deck, master bedroom, living room and the kitchen are fantastic, one of the nights we could see red lava coming out of the volcano (the owners of the house have some binoculars for their guests). The house is located in a nice hill; it is very safe and quiet.We totally loved ~Villa Vagabundo~this was our 2nd time in Costa Rica and for sure we are going back and of course one of our favorite places is now Lake Arenal.
