Property description

Romantic and peaceful VERY LARGE ESTATE on 4.5 acres of flora and fauna,right in front of Lake Arenal...all the best which Costa Rica and all its bio-diversity has to offer. Spectacular Views of 3 different Volcanoes: Tenario, Miravalles, and Arenal.. This Estate is situated right in front of the Lake, on the opposite side of the lake from Nuevo Arenal. This part of the Lake is much more natural, scenic, and quiet, and much less crowded, being away from the busy tourist areas. About one and a half hours from each of the tourist attractions of Arenal Volcano, Tobagon hot springs, the rain forest, Monte Verde, and white water racing. This VERY SPACIOUS & LUXURIOUS TWO-STORY house has 6500 square feet of living space, 4 very large MASTER SUITES, each with a Calif. King Bed, & an attached large bathroom suite. There are 3 couches, and an additional 4 double-sized inflatable mattresses, with upscale linen for all the 8 beds.

The SECOND FLOOR of the house has a self-contained 1200 square-feet SUITE, with an elevated California King Bed, an attached full bath, a work-area with a desk, internet, book-shelf/TV console, three dressers, and a sitting area with 2 couches and two lounge chairs. This suite has all-around amazing views of the Lake and the mountains. This second-floor suite can be ideal for the parents in the family, or a honeymooning couple.

This ESTATE is ideal for honeymoons, and for weddings. Lake fishing, jogging around the lake, salubrious temperatures year around. A perfect place for busy urban entrepreneurs and executives. Digital TV and high-speed Internet to keep you connected. The city of Tilaran is nearby. This place is truly a heaven on earth, with extremely well-kept gardens and lush vegetation.. One can see monkeys and toucans here. Flowers of every kind are all on this property, around the house. Volcano, Lake and mountain views from everywhere on the property, and from each room in the house. A bird-watcher's paradise, as well. Words cannot describe the beauty of this property.

If you prefer a quiet, very scenic ShangriLa, away from all the hustle and bustle, with family and friends, this is the place for you in the entire Lake Arenal area.

The house has a fully equipped modern kitchen, and an outdoor grill.

Property surrounded by spectacular scenic beauty: This property is right in front of Lake Arenal, with unbelievable views from everywhere in the estate.. It is resort living at its best. Lush green mountains, crystal clear lake, flowers of unbelievable variety, gardens nurtured over 40 years, make this a unique property, the likes of which are very very rare in the world. A brief stay at this luxurious property is soothing to the body, mind, and soul. Come and enjoy: relax, read books, ride horses, fish, jog, walk around the lake, see the monkeys, see the variety of birds, sleep soundly, wake up to the music of the birds, enjoy the dining in Arenal and Tilaran, visit the Tobagon Hotsprings, the rain forest, Monte Verde, Arenal Volcano, do wind-surfing.

The house being right in front of the lake, no air conditioning is needed nor installed in the house. all the rooms have ceiling fans and tropical-style ventilators. The temperature is thus very comfortable inside the house, throughout the year

Unforgettable, Once in a Life, Family Vacation: Bring the family along, for a once in a life time vacation, filled with fun, adventure, and relaxation.
