Nestled in the mountains 2,400 feet above sea level and over 1,000 feet above Lake Arenal is Casa Molejon, a rustic yet beautiful home situated among nearly 3 acres of colorful gardens. Enjoy coffee in the mornings on the front porch while waiting for the mountain mist to clear and reveal breathtaking views of Lake Arenal. Or enjoy an evening beverage while taking notice of the orange sun gradually disappearing behind the greenish-blue mountains surrounding the lake. Casa Molejon is ideal for travelers that are staying for more than a few days using it as a home base to visit many of the local attractions, including numerous jungle, lake and volcano excursions. The elder groundskeeper has his own quarters 50 meters behind the main house but it's possible to go days without ever seeing him, given that he generally takes off early in the mornings tending to his routine.

About John Hosemann
My name is Idalie and I was born and raised minutes away from Nuevo Arenal. After college I moved to the United States and have lived there for most of my adult life. After retirement, I bought this lovely property and lived here for many years until I decided to come back to the states to be closer to my grandchildren. My son, John, handles the correspondence and he's more than happy to answer any questions you may have. We hope you enjoy your stay!

Costa Rica Paradise
I have stayed at many VRBO homes and also have one in Laguna Beach, CA. The home was beautiful and spacious with all the amenities that you would want. The vistas from the property were more beautiful even than the pictures. Sitting on the porch in the rocking chairs and sipping Costa Rican coffee was the way to start the day. We were welcomed by the neighbors and they were very helpful on where to go and what to do. We felt right at home. Went to Baldy Hot Springs, Mystico Bridges, Arenal Volcano National Park. The kitchen was great made delicious meals when we had the chance.. Hope to come back in May. Thank you John, Diane & Steve for such a remarkable place to stay. Diane & Steve we will meet again!
Thank you for such kind words, Pamela! We are so glad you and your family enjoyed their time in Arenal. We can't wait to have you back. If we're ever coming to SoCal, we will definitely consider staying at your Laguna Beach property. Thanks again, John.
