Enchanting 2 BR, 1 BA Rainforest Mountain House ,special rates for october 2018
- english, german
I was born and raised in Germany and live in the US, I love nature and alternative traveling, backpacking .I look to experience the true people and culture of a place which is why I bought this house .
Owner purchased this House in 2011
Why Owner chose Peñas Blancas
I fell in love with this house on my visit this spring ( 2011) and ended up buying it, I am continuing to rent it and have the same delightful caretakers as the prior owner. There is a lot to do and see in the area. There is a book with information and reviews by previous visitors in the house. We love experiencing the true Costa Rica, avoiding the crowds and yet having easy access to it all. I looked at property near the beach and it was not for us. I much prefer my mountain house.The covered deck allows us to relax outside in our hammocks even if it rains and I love the strands of fog in the trees in the morning after a rain. If you love birds you will truly enjoy my house, birders have rented it and reported excitedly about the varieties they saw . The Eco Lodge next door allows my guests to use the pool and come to their restaurant, they are wonderful neighbors, they have cabins under the trees that you don't see from my place , so it feels like you are alone out there.
What makes this House unique
Super relaxing and quiet, a place to connect with family and friends , there is a small charcoal BBQ for your enjoyment .I do not charge for extra people as I have traveled with kids and hated the extra fees myself .
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Family friendly. Had what we needed. Great location. Everyone knew of Ute and her house so this afforded us with a great support system. Thank you to Ute! Our family looks forward to returning!
5 days in Chachagua
Peaceful quit location. Great to have it within the amenities of the lodge
Rustic rain forest get away
The porch and hammocks- and views - were wonderful! And you can easily walk to the adjoining Eco-resort and are welcome at their pool, restaurant and to sign up for activities. We did horseback riding with Manrique. He was awesome! Not only great with the horses, but took us to pineapple, banana and sugar cane farm. Only reasons this is 4 stars instead of 5 is that it was a bit warm for no air conditioning and the unpaved driveway to the house was difficult to navigate. But we’d happily go back!
The grounds and surroundings were unbelievable. From Holler monkeys ,Toucans and various other birds to wake up to were so relaxing. The house needs some minor tinkering but was adequate.Being American, toilet flushing was challenging. Geckos share the home with you so don't be alarmed. Same with frogs on the deck
Awesome. The grounds are amazing.
You don’t have to go far to experience the rain forest. Birds come to the deck all the time. Wish we had more time. Perhaps another day.
I stayed here with my wife and two small kids. It was a wonderful retreat. The trails and gardens around the hotel are perfect for exploring and nature study. Looking forward to coming back to this gem of the Rainforest.
This wonderful house is located near Volcano Arenal east of La Fortuna.
This map shows it in the town of Chachagua, But in reality 2 km away and is adjacent to the Children's Eternal Rainforest. Next Door is the Chachagua Hotel and Eco Lodge invisible under the trees , nice restaurant and also a good place if your group or family is too large for the house , just rent one of their beautiful cabins.
