****SPECIAL START-UP PROMOTIONAL RATE $125 PER NIGHT*****
Come stay in a breathtaking new home, custom built to take advantage of the beautiful surroundings while still having every comfort. Enjoy views of the majestic volcano, the tranquil lake complete with wind turbines on the horizon, rolling pasture lands, and the lush rainforest.
The house is modern Bali-style architecture, and is brand new. Construction finished in 2013. It is a gorgeous combination of steel and sharp angles with natural stone and wood. The whole house is furnished with custom-made furniture and cabinets made from the most beautiful local hardwoods. The ceilings are vaulted and 20 feet high. There are two bedrooms, one with a view of the lake and mountains, the other with a view of the volcano. The bathroom has an oversize slate shower and double vanity. The kitchen is fully-equipped with new appliances, and we provide the basics- salt and pepper, paper towels, soap, etc. The living room has an oversize double sliding glass door which opens wide to give the sensation that the deck and the living room are one in the same. Without a doubt, the best feature of the house is the exotic wood bench and bar that runs along the entire length of the covered deck. Guests can sit and dangle their feet in the air with a drink or meal, and take in the majestic views below. A delicious continental breakfast will be provided daily.
Also offered for your enjoyment are a brand-new hot tub, a beautiful fire pit with formed-benches, and an immense grill. Play with horse-shoes, badminton, or our dartboard. Try your skills with a kite or a Frisbee. If you just feel like staying in, we offer satellite TV, high-speed WiFi, a large selection of DVD’s, and board games.
The house is located in a spacious gated community 10 kilometers up the mountain on a country dirt road from the town of Nuevo Arenal. The road is in decent condition. A rental car is a must, and 4x4 recommended. The development is secluded, yet still close to town and all the local amenities. Being higher in elevation, you will always enjoy a fresher, crisper, breezier climate than 'down the mountain'- between 5-10 degrees difference on average. Unlike many beach areas in Costa Rica where it is always the same weather-hot and humid- here you can experience a refreshing mix of sunshine and heat with rain, clouds, mist, and cooler weather.
It is a perfect place to connect with nature. Our guests will enjoy the marvels of all the local wildlife right at their door-step. The call of the 'congos' swinging through the trees, gigantic toads, a myriad of brightly colored insects and butterflies, bromeliads growing all over the trees, exotic flowers. Bird watchers will be in heaven here in overlooking the treetops at the toucans, hawks, vultures, hummingbirds, parrots and more.
Our family lives on the property as well with our 3 large dogs. The two houses are separated completely, and we will never interfere, but are glad to be of any assistance if needed.
When you venture out, we are a 15 minute drive to do some spelunking in the Venado Caves. La Fortuna is 45 minutes away where you can visit natural hot springs, go canopy jumping, horseback riding, four-wheeling, visit the snake and reptile zoo, indulge in a spa treatment and do some souvenir shopping. Other day trips will take you to magical waterfalls or the crystal-clear blue water of Rio Celeste. As a bonus, our guests may feel free to load up our 2 kayaks and go down to the boat launch in town, where they can explore Lake Arenal and look for artifacts along the shorelines. The entire area around Lake Arenal is a cyclist’s heaven, with excellent roads and trails to navigate.There are so many activities to enjoy in the area, and we are happy to help book activities and recommend our favorites.
Rate per night is for up to 4 people. $15 per night per person over the 4 person limit. Children under 7 years of age stay for free. Rates for extended stays are negotiable. Rates are subject to change until confirmed by owner.

Why the Owner Chose Nuevo Arenal: After traveling all of Costa Rica in search of our dream property, we knew in an instant this was our paradise. It was a combination of cooler weather, lush rainforest, lake and volcano views and above all privacy, peace and security. Casa Karon is pure Costa Rica, our little piece of heaven.
