Nuevo Arenal house description

April 29th, 2014 -- FLASH UPDATE: The Road to our property is finally getting a long-awaited overhaul--- GREAT NEWS!! Repairs are underway NOW and already, before they have finished, there is a fantastic difference..

Gated and lots of room to roam. Meticulously maintained 65+ acre retreat with flowers and wildlife too numerous to mention. Over 3 miles of private hiking trails, many leading to fantastic vistas of the surrounding mountains, volcano and lake.

The main house is a compact 2,500 square foot open floor plan design with 4 bedrooms (1 queen, 1 full and 2 twin) and 2 bathrooms and sleeps 8 with room for an additional 2 in a queen size pullout sofa. Each bedroom has great views. Full kitchen inside with local hand made cabinetry and a local hand made eat-in dining table that seats 8-10.The veranda on the back of the house is huge with great views of the lake and has a working wood stove that can serve as an outdoor kitchen. All linens, towels and kitchen utensils onsite. Be sure to check out our Video of the house and furnishings.

We have a 1 acre private natural swimming pond with platforms and swimming ladders for ease of use. Make sure you check out our photos.

We have many banana, pineapple, orange, mandarin, grapefruit, lemon, lime, breadfruit trees and more. You are welcome to enjoy all that the property has to offer.

We have an experienced property manager (English speaking) and two gardeners that keep the property meticulously maintained. Upon arrival, please feel free to ask what fresh fruit is available so our gardeners can deliver some to your door or pick it for yourself.

We are able to assist with planning and reserving many exotic adventures such as boating, biking, zip-lining, horseback riding, nature hiking, white-water rafting, hot springs, cave exploring, kayaking, canoeing and more... Cost for each tour is different and information is made available after confirmation of booking.

We are only 2.5km (1.5 miles) outside the Town of Nuevo Arenal. Close to shopping, tours and dining. Our location makes a perfect base for those wanting to explore all Costa Rica has to offer or just relax and enjoy our property and the many species of flora, fauna and wildlife.

If you are looking for smaller accommodations for only one or two persons, please check out our Blue Butterfly Cottage -- a perfect cottage for one/two persons -- cozy, clean and comfortable www.vrbo.com/508655

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: We stumbled upon this property and immediately knew it was special. We have worked hard to keep the property pristine and to keep it as natural as possible. We hope our guests can appreciate the natural beauty this property has to offer as much as we do.

                  Why the Owner Chose Nuevo Arenal:
                  Our property is situated approximately 1.5 miles (2.5km) above the town of Nuevo Arenal.. There are over 3 miles of roads and trails throughout the property, several ponds, and many species of flora, fauna and wildlife. In addition to the 7-8 springs/creeks that run through the property, we have a 1 acre naturally refreshed swimming pond that is great for a refreshing dip after a long hike.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We have many exotic orchids that grow on the property and our property is host to endangered wildlife.... safe but endangered. You will also see many different varieties of birds and flowers that make Costa Rica the most bio-diverse country that it is... please enjoy.
