This charming two-bedroom, two-bath lakefront home is located on the shore of beautiful Lake Arenal, a scenic 1 hour 10 minute drive from Liberia International Airport. The house is situated on a secluded 1 ½ acre parcel replete with lush tropical flowers, shrubs, and trees. The neighborhood is called Puerto San Luis and is one of the drier areas of the Lake Arenal area. Private yet convenient, it is less than 10 minutes away from the quaint town of Tilarán, where you’ll find banks, supermarkets, restaurants, and other amenities.
Nine years on VRBO- Our reviews speak for themselves.
If you’re looking to rent a house in the Lake Arenal area, there are many choices, BUT – if you want to be right on the lake, the choices are few and far between. That’s what sets this house apart from other rentals. This property is right on the lakefront of the magnificent Lake Arenal, where you can swim, fish, wind surf, kite surf, and kayak (kayak provided). Or – you can pick some limes on the grounds, make a cool drink, and just “veg out” on the terrace, while you watch the monkeys cavorting in the treetops. From the terrace you can see Lake Arenal and from the house you can see the Arenal Volcano.
Comfortable, affordable, spacious yet cozy. You’ll have a fully equipped kitchen with a stove, refrigerator, microwave, blender, coffee maker, toaster and bread machine. The master bedroom has a full bath and queen-sized bed. The second bedroom has a full sized bed. There is a second bathroom, a comfortable living room that has a flat plasma TV with satellite service, a dining area with a large table, and a laundry room with washer and dryer. The house underwent an extensive renovation in 2010. If you need access to the internet, there is wireless internet.
For more information, don’t hesitate to contact us. We can suggest nearby activities such as Rio Celeste, the best kept secret in all of Costa Rica. The light blue river is surrounded by amazing rainforest that sports one of Costa Rica's most beautiful waterfalls, natural hot springs, as well as the unique phenomenon of clear water turning blue by means of a volcanic chemical reaction. We can provide real estate services as well. It will be our pleasure to answer all your questions.

A very beautiful setting
Everything you need and want in a place. Comfortable and clean, but musty smelling. After having the windows open for awhile, it got better. The owner and property manager both responded quickly with any questions we had and were very helpful.
We enjoyed and had a great time in this wonderful house, all complete with barbeque and canoes!
Comfortable, quiet house by the lake
First off, Pat was great to work with. Very helpful and responsive. When we arrived, Jonie (the property manager) was fantastic. She had bread, eggs, coffee, tea and juice for us which was very much appreciated. The family room is large and comfortable with places for everyone to hang out (we are a family of 5). We loved ending our days with family movie night. There is a huge TV with an incredible selection of movies. There are also games and books. The washer and dryer were great, showers were nice (always had hot water). There was no AC but with the fans and cross breezes, it was fine. Kitchen is well stocked for cooking and there were plenty of blankets, sheets and towels (including beach towels!). Very good wifi too.
You will definitely need a 4 wheel drive to get to the house. There is an unpaved but fairly good road that would have made the drive to La Fortuna much quicker. Unfortunately, parts of it had been washed out in the May storms. It is a good location to get to both La Fortuna (Arenal) and Monteverde. Viento Fresco falls is nearby and a much better trip than the La Fortuna waterfall. We were hoping to be able walk (or have a short drive) to grocery stores, coffee and restaurants. The places that are close by are fairly limited.
We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Sullo and the whole Arenal area.
A Relaxing Stay
Our 5 week stay at this home was great from start to finish beginning with the property manager, Jonie, who made us feel at home immediately. The property is pretty much as described but not quite lakefront by North American standards. The house itself is fantastic with all you need for a comfortable stay. If you are looking for a place to stay in this area do yourself a favor and check it out.
One word of caution if you do stay here - Jonie has set the bar so high that you will likely be disappointed with all other property managers you have in your future travels.
Our 2nd year staying at this lovely property...great amenities, especially if you like to cook; well appointed, everything you need. Many quiet evenings on the back patio grilling dinner with a beautiful view of the lake. The property manager, Joannie, was extremely friendly and helpful, and gave us some great recommendations for restaurants. She was very available. The owner Pat, as always prompt in returning messages and giving ideas for day trips. This house is just as represented. We had a terrific time!
Casa Sullo Experience Top Notch
Our stay at Casa Sullo on Lake Arenal was top notch in all areas. First, the property manager, Joannie, was an exceptional host. She not only had the property in tip top shape, but she also offered us information - everything from where to buy carne locally, to a great restaurant recommendation, to the local Catholic church services.
The property was perfect for two couples sharing a vacation. We spent much time on the large back patio overlooking the lake and a huge backyard. The landscaping around the house was beautiful and very well maintained. We saw monkeys, Tucans, and many bird species, which was mentioned in the property description and came true before our eyes.
The house was well supplied upon arrival with basics to begin our vacation. Also, the kitchen was well stocked with dishes and cooking utensils - everything was thought of from our point of view. The Wi Fi and cable offered good reception and all worked well. There was a very nice grill that we used several times. The laundry facilities worked well and were much appreciated. The house was very, very clean - we did not feel we needed to wash things before using them, as we have had to do at some other properties.
We would highly recommend Casa Sullo when visiting the Lake Arenal area. Oh yes, there is a lovely view of the Arenal Volcano from the front kitchen window - a treat, indeed!
Again, many compliments to Joannie for being our perfect hostess. Also, the owner, Mr. Sullo, was very helpful on everything from the very beginning of our booking. Thank you Pat and Joannie for making our vacation so very special.
