Lake Views In Excuisite Gated Community
average rating of 4.0 based on 7 reviews

The view is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The place was just as we'd pictured. The owners took great pictures! The villa is in a secure location and it was very quiet! The best part of this villa was the amazing views. We spent our evenings sitting on the deck feeling the breeze and enjoying the sounds of nature. It's about 1.5 hrs from the Arenal Volcano, Monteverde Cloud Forest, and La Celeste waterfall. We loved our time there and would even come back :)

Nice property in a gated community

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week at this property in February. It is nicely furnished and representative of the pictures shown. The WI-FI worked great the entire time we were there. There are a couple of nice restaurants just up the road. The one drawback was that no one met us there on our arrival. A guard let us in and left us the key. It would have been nice to have someone explain how things work, although we managed without too much trouble.

Air fresheners were overpowering. Beautiful home and the landscaping immaculate.

  • 3 of 5

We asked for information that we did not get. We could not get in touch with the property manager when we arrived in the vicinity. There was no information provided about the area Or checkout. The house was advertised to have wifi. We did have wifi for the full three nights we were there, even though we contacted the property manager. Although the property is remote and beautiful, we will not come for another vacation here.

Owner's Response: Scott, we are grateful for your feedback and comments. We will get to work taking these concerns of yours head on. The internet and most other utilities within the entire community do encounter disruptions. It is a unfortunate occurrence. I will have to communicate with our manager in reference to difficulties contacting her. I will offer you a $200.00 discount on any length stay if you can see to come again and let us make you happy. Regards, Kyle

Tranquil beauty

  • 4 of 5

If you are looking for a quiet retreat, this is it!

The gated community is tucked out of the way in a quiet setting, yet it is easy to get to.

We were greeted at the gate by the grounds keeper who took us to the house.

The beds were very comfortable, and sleep 4 with ease. The appliances are top end (although we did not use the laundry or dishwasher)

Kyle is very helpful and quick at responding to questions or problems. He has a local contact who handles any issues during your stay.

We would recommend this home to you, especially if you are seeking a quiet get away.

We took day trips to Rio Celeste, the Monteverde Coffee Tour, and Los Lagos for a canopy tour and hot springs. Each was around an hour and a half away, but the drive is beautiful. We would not recommend Monteverde from this location (the tour was great) only because we traveled over an hour on rutty dirt roads.

We are putting this location in our file for a possible return trip!

Owner's Response: Thank you Carolyn for your wonderful remarks. We take pride in our home and community. It certainly is a special place for many to enjoy as you did. The fact that it is away enough for serenity yet so much is within reach of a beautiful day trip / excursion. Come on back - 10% off for you!! (please remind me! lol) Kyle
