La Fortuna house description

Are you looking for a piece of paradise? If so our beautiful, private farm home, built in June of 2010 is just for you! The nearest town is 10 minutes away. This peaceful home is nestled in a rural area that is away from the commercial tourism. You can enjoy relaxing moments next to a tranquil lake. From the deck you can see a wonderful variety of birds that come to the lake. Views of Arenal volcano can also be seen outside the house. Arenal is one of the top 10 most active volcanoes in the world. The smoke and lava flows daily.

This home is air conditioned and about 1,250 sq. ft. with an open floor plan. It has 2 bedrooms with a king sized bed in each and 2 bathrooms. If additional room is needed, there is a queen air mattress which sleeps 2 more. The open kitchen and living room show off the beautiful Costa Rican wood. All the rooms have beautiful Costa Rican wood ceilings too. The French doors in the bedrooms and living room open onto a beautiful wood deck that overlooks the lake. In addition, the house and yard are handicap friendly. There are no steps. The doors and hallways are wide and the showers have nothing to step over. There is no washer and dryer inside the house, but for a small fee laundry arrangements can be made.

Do you enjoy kayaking? If so kayaks are located by the lake for your use. There is also a large deck that you can use that is not pictured. It is located on the north side of the lake, A pool table is located on this deck. If you are more adventurous then water skiing, wakeboarding, and tubing is available on our lake next door. Arrangements for boating need to be made separately in advance. Exploring the farm and lakes on horseback is also an option. The horses are kept next door. You can also make arrangements to tour a private frog farm close by. Poisonous Dart Frogs and the famous red-eyed tree frog are just a couple of types of frogs you will see there. If you want to hold a red eyed tree frog then just let Claudio, owner of the farm know. He will often wake up a red eyed tree frog and place it in your hands.

A 40 minute drive to the base of Arenal Volcano is the town of La Fortuna. In La Fortuna you will find plenty of shopping. At the base of Arenal are several thermal hot springs. We would be happy to offer you recommendations on hot springs because we visited all of them.

We highly recommend for you to experience a guided Canopy tour! You are hooked up to a cable with the safety harness. As you travel along the zip line, you will go from tree platform to the next. One cable is over 1/2 mile long and zips past a waterfall. The Canopy tour is quite memorable and thrilling.

We know you will enjoy your peaceful and relaxing visit to our home nestled in paradise!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: My husband and I are farmers in California. We farm mostly grapes and almonds. We are avid water skiers and always wanted a place where we could water ski year round. My husbands mother is Costa Rican. With lots of relatives living in Costa Rica we started going down to visit about 6 years ago. We fell in love with the country and the people. We found this place where we could water ski year round in 80 to 85 degree water.

                  Why the Owner Chose La Fortuna:
                  My husband and I fell in love with this area about 5 years ago. We are avid water skiers and found these lakes with 80 to 85 degree water year round. We have brought our ski boat down to Costa Rica. This is the first house we have built here at the farm. We are starting to build another house on another lake. We go to our beach houses to, but prefer the weather and the people that we have gotten to know and love here.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  You will enjoy staying in paradise. Many things to see and do in the area.
