Property description

Well maintained condo with a large modern kichen, 3 bedrooms, 3 full baths and excellent security. The kitchen is well equipped and spacious enough to allow for 2 or 3 people working at once. Open concept living room/kitchen/eating area which connects with our new two story deck, allows everyone to enjoy the view and the breezes.
Many places in the area claim to provide a lot of services but fail to deliver, if we list it, we provide it. A little over an hour from an International airport, Arenal volcano, Monte Verde and just under 2 hours from world class beaches.
Surrounded by National Parks, we get to enjoy birds sometimes by the hundreds. Toucans, parrots and others grace us with their presence.
Close enough to walk to a Tronodora for groceries or a quick beer. We have the advantage of a nearby bus stop for those without a vehicle. Secured parking for those with a vehicle, tenants have a choice of driving eight miles to Tilaran which boasts multiple supermarkets, produce shops, butcher shops, drugstores, hardware stores, English speaking private dentists and doctors.
The view is constantly changing and too beautiful for words.
In 2015 we added a large deck off the main room, removed the half wall off the kitchen and moved the dining table. For those of you that have stayed with us before, you'll be amazed at how much bigger the living space feels now, for all of our new guests, wait unil you see the view!
For those of you who bring your work with you, we provide a desk close to the router and wifi for a fast connections. The best part is just looking out at the view while you work from the desk or the adjoining deck.

Keywords: An easy commute from the airport at Liberia, only 8 miles from Tilaran on a hillside overlooking Lake Arenal with Volcan Tenorio centered above the lake. The town of Tronodora is within easy walking distance and a bus stop within sight of the front door makes this the perfect place for tenants with or without their own transportation.
Master bedroom has a king sized bed, 2nd bedroom has a queen and the 3rd bedroom has a full with an air mattress if necessary. All 3 bathrooms have a shower, but there is also a large bathtub is in the master bath.

Car: Recommended

Close enough to the town of Tronadora to walk. A good sized and well stocked store is located just off the main road, a pizzaria, bar and greenhouses are along the way. Ask our property manager for details!!

Although you have 1.75 hour drive to the beaches, they are world class ones with plenty of shopping, quality snorkling and scuba diving. On the lake itself, there are opportunities for fresh water activities through local businesses.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2010

About: Texas natives with a love of travel, we fell in love with this place and look forward to spending our vacation there every year. A trip means long relaxing soaks in volcanic pools, friendly neighbors, hiking and scuba diving at the coast. My husband and I have taken our 3 grown children with us on a holiday trip and had the greatest Thanksgiving there. A fully modern kitchen with all the toys makes meal prep easy rather than a constant challenge.

Why Tilaran:
We choose this location due to the easy drive from the airport, the incredible views and the lower number of tourists. We find that prices are much more reasonable for groceries and we have a choice of several large stores including one within walking distance.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
At least once every visit, we go to the volcanic hot pools, an overnight stay at the beach and we try to include as many side trips to National Parks as possible. Unlike many other locations in the country, many of the best parks are a short day trip away. For us, the best times are simply sitting with a cup of coffee and a birding guide and just enjoying the view.
