Awesome view of the lake

We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation week at this rental property. Beautiful sunsets off the veranda while looking at the lake. All the supplies and amenities we needed.

90 Days in a Birds Paradise

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful stay we had in this spacious and well maintained home. We arrived on January 4, 2017 and left on April 4, 2017. We arrived to a very clean home with many amenities. One of the stipulations for us to rent this home for 90 days was that it had to have high-speed internet and the owner, Bill definitely researched it thoroughly and got the right provider. The beds were very comfortable as well as the living room furniture. We had guests on two occasions and it never felt cramped. The downstairs' is perfect for guests. They have their own space including a back deck to see the sunset or listen to the howler monkeys. The communal pool was always very well taken care of. Every day we got to see the toucans and aracaries in addition to so many other colorful birds . We were close to the volcano and different national parks. We were 1 1/2 hours from Liberia Airport which is a nice airport to fly in and out of. We had a situation where we lost our key and the Property Manager, Mike was such a great help. He came over immediately to save the day. He was such a wealth of information as well. We had Marisol over to clean the house and boy can she clean, we were not disappointed. Before long my husband knew everyone's name including the guards. We always felt very safe and slept with the windows open every night waking up with the birds singing, especially the Oropendola's. - no complaints here.

Perfect first trip

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to Costa Rica, so much you want to do, where do you set up a home base?

This place was perfect to visit Arenal, Monteverde and Tenerio Volcano park, Rio Celeste. One of the most beautiful homes we've stayed in. Five of us comfortably with room for privacy and visiting together both.

Beautiful house and area, lots of birds and the area people are fantastic. Plenty of grocery stores. We loved it. Pool was nice too.

Saw a family of 4 Toucans every mourning and afternoon. . Lots of hummingbirds, woodpeckers, flocks of Parrots.

Would recommend to anyone.

Wonderful House

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying for 8 days at this house in August. The house itself was amazing and everything we could have asked for, with incredible views, and a stunning interior. We felt completely safe, you do have to drive a little farther to La Fortuna or the national parks, but that is why you pick a house that is not in the middle of everything. Mike was nice to meet us at the house and showed us the ropes. Amanda was very nice to work with and accommodate a change we needed to make, we really appreciate her working with us.

Lot 17 is really nice. It's well decorated, roomy, and very clean. Mike, the property manager, was really great. I recommend this rental to anyone wanting to stay in the Lake Arenal area. It was spectacular!

Traveling tips:

#1: The villa is in the middle of the rain forest, so there are an over abundance of insects and they all want to get inside the villa (at least it seemed that way). DONT leave the house with ANY interior lights on. RECOMMENDATION, leave the carport lights on only. This way the insects congregate there and away from the front door. Once we figured that out (3rd day) we had only minor bug problems.

Tip #2: I recommend a 4 wheel drive. Many of the roads to get places are dirt and steep. The bigger the 4 wheel drive, the better.

That is all I have for recommendations and tips. I hope these tips will help make your stay better.

The country is beautiful. The people are totally awesome. The owner/property managers are great to work with. We went in the rainy season and it rained a lot, but it was warm rain and did not hamper any of our plans. We saw monkeys, toucan, 2 sloths, 2 large iguanas, and many, many birds and exotic bugs.

Have a great stay here!!
