Gorgeous Property and grounds

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week in this house. The house is well maintained, the beds are comfortable and the showers are nice and hot. It is a wonderful place to see birds. We saw birds here which we had not seen before. And the visit from the bunny was an added bonus. The waterfall at volcano Tenorio is beautiful and worth the drive.

This was a great week. Thanks for your recommendations Ricardo.

I wish I could leave pictures of the sunsets over the lake. We would eat some of our meals on the deck. Birds abound making photography so easy. Ricardo has been a joy to work with.

We went to the San Antonio Christian Church on Sunday an American service {8:45} and received two invites to members homes making awesome connections in this beautiful country.My soul feels so restored after staying at

this mountain resort for a week.

Each and every recommendation Ricardo gave us was PERFECT! I can only pray I can go back.

Thank you Ricardo and Franklin too.

A great first time in Costa Rica!

  • 4 of 5

My boyfriend and I decided to take our January vacation in Costa Rica. Not only was this our first time traveling to CR, but also our first time using VRBO. We were very nervous but we had no issues using VRBO and we got our full deposit back the day we left the property-so if you have any concerns, don't!

When choosing our property, we wanted a mix of good tourist area where we would feel comfortable with things to do but without the super touristy resort like feel. With this property and area, I feel like we accomplished that! The night we arrived, Franklin showed us to the property. Both him and Ricardo are very nice and accessible. Whenever we contacted Ricardo, either before or during our trip, he was very quick to respond via phone call or email! He was also very helpful with recommending things to do etc.

The house itself is also great- it is located in a gated area, which made me feel safe and secure. A car is definitely needed for this property, preferably a 4 wheel drive or SUV (something with some clearance) as the roads in CR are not all fully paved. We managed fine with a sedan but would have felt better in an SUV, especially in the rain. (Also, most activities and such are definitely driving distance) The house was great with a master bedroom/bath and deck upstairs; another bedroom/bath downstairs; kitchen with utensils/bowls/etc; another deck off the living room which is gives you amazing sunset views!

The nearby town Nuevo Arenal (5 minute drive) has a grocery store, a bank and numerous restaurants with CR food, Italian, American and German food (so a great variety). The Windcatcher and German bakery were great breakfast spots. Los Platillos, Moyas and Tinajas (Tinajas is 5 min out of town on the lake) are great for lunch and dinner!

As far as activities, we drove to La Fortuna (35 minute drive) to see the waterfalls, go zip lining, hot springs, hanging bridges and hiking.

DEFINITELY RECOMMEND this property with Ricardo!

A peaceful mountian retreat

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a pleasant New Year's stay at this fine home in the Arenal area. Our trip was a bit hampered by unusually heavy rain every day, but the owner, Ricardo, was available and helpful and the feeling and physical layout was wonderful. It is a peaceful place with a fine deck for yoga. You need to find or make your own entertainment here but that was a pleasant change from Tamarindo beach.

Fantastic Stay

  • 4 of 5

What a gorgeous home with beautiful views. Located in a secure gated area with other homes nearby, yet you feel secluded. We enjoyed the large deck just off the living room. Great views for watching sunsets, relaxing in the hammock, having your morning coffee or watching the toucans eating on the banana tree. The home has a huge master bedroom/bathroom on the upper level with another deck upstairs. An additional full bedroom/bathroom is located on the main level. The kitchen has all equipment needed for cooking meals. Only a 5-minute ride to the quaint town of Nuevo Arenal for groceries and restaurants. A beautiful hour drive to La Fortuna (a car is a must for this property).

Ricardo was wonderful to work with, he answered all of my questions via email before the trip and during our stay, he was only a phone call away. He even called us at the home on our first full day there to see if we were happy with the home and asked if we needed anything. Very nice touch. The manager (Franklin) escorted us to the property and met us on our last day to return our deposit (fully refunded). I strongly recommend this property. Great stay. Thank you Ricardo!
