Fantastic view. Nice location. House layout good.
We really enjoyed our stay at the property. The views were fantastic.
The house on the other hand could use some maintenance. There are a lot of annoying things that could easily be fixed. The kitchen sink won't shut off. Only one of the three showers worked properly. One shower came down on you like a fire hose. One shower sprayed a light mist on you only. And one shower actually had a shower head that works properly. One of the bathrooms was clearly not working as it wreaked of sewer gas the entire time we were there so it was unusable. Turned out to be a little bit of a blessing because the door to that bathroom would not close. The sheets on one of the beds were clearly not changed before we got there either so a bit unsettling. Service panel on breaker box missing. Deadly if someone touches it.
The house was fine, and the owner was very helpful. The views were magnificent
Beautiful house, beautiful view
My group of five adults and one child had a wonderful time at Villa Bella Verde and look forward to our next visit. The house sits high above Lake Arenal, with stunning 180-degree views. The outside sitting area is a perfect place to relax and contemplate the lake scenery after a busy day of activities in the Arenal area--hot springs, volcano tour, boating, horseback riding, hiking, etc etc. The Villa Bella Verde property is well-landscaped and secure. The house comes fully equipped with kitchen and laundry supplies. The four bedrooms are large and the beds are very comfortable. The three bathrooms offer good strong showers. The wifi network gives excellent reception. There is a wall mounted widescreen television that offers hundreds of channels. The room has a dining table that seated our group easily, as well as a breakfast bar. We had good communication with our hosts, Cindy and Alexis, before the visit and Alexis met us on arrival and showed us how everything works. When we had a temporary problem with the water flow, Alexis, who is a builder and developer, was very responsive and took care of it. The water comes from a natural spring up the mountain and is very good to drink. So we would not hesitate to rent again and look forward to our next stay.
Million Dollar View
Middle of December and the nights were 65 degrees, days 75. Opened the front door and had a breeze blowing through large front room that opened onto the patio. It was wonderful. Of course, in the summer, it may be a different story. I think someone mentioned there is no air conditioning.
Kitchen was good. Extra paper towels, oil for cooking, nice pans, 4 gas burners that were easy to clean. In fact, the entire house was easy to clean. Mostly tile.
Someone in another review mentioned bugs. I have been to CR before and there were far fewer bees, spiders, and bugs here than anywhere else I've stayed.
Opening the doors allowed a few flying guests, the most interesting being a humming bird. It found its way out quickly and unharmed.
Definitely plan on staying in this house on any future trips to CR.
My wife and I loved our stay at this property! The views are even better than we imagined (pictures can't do it justice) and the yard is well maintained and teeming with local wildlife! We loved sitting out back and watching and listening to the birds! The property is close to many wonderful restaurant options, several cute little towns, Arenal Volcano, hot springs and more! Alexis, our host, was very nice and accomodating, showing us personally to the property and even making an extra trip to town for coffee filters for us. We definitely want to stay again! Thank you for a wonderful stay!
THE VIEW OF THE PROPERTY IS BEYOND WORDS
Since arrival, a loved the location and the view of the House. My family had a great time and a very good weather. We had amazing sunsets and enjoyed every minute there. We spent most of the time in the house, the lake in front of the house, walking up and down to mountain behind. I also spent time in my mountain bike discovering little roads and shortcuts to Arenal city. We had sun, wind, rain, and calm, everyone spectacular in their way. If you like to be secluded, away from the world, with an amazing setting, without being at the beach, this is a serious recommendation.
