                  Location

                  Located on the main road in San Luis ~ 4Km north of Tilaran. There is a bus stop located just outside the front door which can take you to Tilaran on a regular basis or down to Tronadora also about 4Km further down the road. Located very close to Puerto San Luis where you can rent boats, etc. Also a quick drive to the windsurfing sites on Lake Arenal, the volcanoes, hot springs. Located about 1.5 hrs from the airport in Liberia. Also located within walking distance to La Reserva Forest Project if you are volunteering for that project.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: We have lived in the Tilaran area since 2009. Originally from Austin, TX we moved here to start up different business ventures. The wash and fold service and hamburger joint located on the ground floor are our businesses. We live in Tierras Morenas with our dogs, horse and sheep. There we have a boarding kennel so feel free to have your pet(s) stay with us if you need to do some exploring.

                  Why the Owner Chose Tilaran:
                  We purchased this property in 2011 - it was a very blue run-down bat infested eye sore. We built something that had multi-functionality and also added to the community by providing jobs to the local residents. We are very proud of our building; we call it Plazazul - even though it is no longer blue. The apartment is basic but very nice, clean, beautiful views of the lake from the balconies. San Luis is a cute, quiet town with a nice mix of expats and Ticos. As you sit on your balcony enjoying a cold beer, glass of wine, or coffee the neighbors will wave as they walk by. You will hear the laughter of kids as they walk to school. You will even see some folks heading off on their horses. Yet, you are only 10minutes from hustle and bustle of Tilaran. San Luis is located about 400 meters from the lake road that takes you all around Lake Arenal.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
                  We saw the potential of the property and saw the possible lake view if we went up a story. The apartment has a private balcony where you can enjoy the sunrise and a cup of coffee or the sunset and a glass of wine. There are bananas and mango on the lot that you are welcome to enjoy should they be available during your stay. Our gardener lives across the street so he can always see when the grass needs to be mowed plus he is an extra set of eyes for security. We feel our property offers you the comforts of home with a budget in mind so you can spend your hard earned money on other things that the area has to offer. Tours, rafting, windsurfing, the pura vida in general.
