About the property

A 3400 sf spacious and uniqe,was designed by me as a pice of art

Our HOME is a beautiful piece of art, designed and owned by Julian Tiglat, only the best materials were used on the construction. Relaxing surroundings invites you to sit and enjoy of a Costa Rica countryside house located close and far from La Fortuna downtown (Just ½ mile – 15 minute walk) in friendly and secure neighborhood.

The majestic house is a lilting combination of straight and curved lines soaring to a high ceiling; the gallery and living area are very large and create a cool open space, while the bedrooms are intimate and cozy. The patio off the family room opens to a very large, private park with birds nesting in the palms where a brook feeds a lovely pond; there is INDOOR POOL in the house and a garage with a work bench and enough room for three cars.

You imagine you are far from civilization in your private paradise with the natural sounds of birds and swaying palms but in reality you are just a kilometer from LA FORTUNA, a charming little town of excellent restaurants, markets, souvenirs and tour agencies at the foot of the active ARENAL VOLCANO. In the other direction, just a ten minute walk, is a large natural swimming pool in the Fortuna river surrounded by jungle, where the locals cool off in the middle of the day; the people of Costa Rica are very friendly, pleasant and happy, who greet strangers with a salutation of HOLA and PURA VIDA.

We will make sure that your experience in Arenal be unique and memorable, we have all kinds of information about activities, must visit places and recommendations to travel around La Fortuna and all over Costa Rica. Please feel free to ask me anything and we will give you an answer as soon as possible.

Beautiful property, Informal, considerate host - feels like a home!

  • 4 of 5

We were a group of 12 people and stayed at Julien's property for 3 nights.

The property is ideal to accommodate 8 people comfortably, but we couldnt find anything larger so we decided to stay here.

The property is really very pretty and has most of the amenities.

The owner - Julien, did everything possible to make us feel comfortable. He gave us a lot of advice on what all to do in the area as well as arranged for discounted tickets to Balldi Hot springs.

Where do I begin to sing the praises of this property?

First of all, the location is very convenient for walking to town (level walk, no hills) and taxis are readily available. I prefer to use taxis as opposed to rental car because they know directions and where to find things. You can see Arenal Vocano from in front of the house. There is a waterfall within walking distance of the house. There are tourist services in town, some of which provide discounted prices for local attractions as compared to Internet pricing. The grounds are beautiful with a sense of safety, security, privacy, peace and quiet...and yet, very close to the center of town. Julian's dog is a good guard dog, very friendly and playful.

The house is full of creative, artistic details. Every day, I discovered new inventive beautiful things that Julian created to make his home not only functional, but very beautiful and artistic. I came home seeing solutions around my home in a new light. His art work is unlike anything I have seen elsewhere. Julian is a very talented artist with much meaning and love behind his art.

In addition to being very beautiful, Julian's house is very spacious, modern, clean and comfortable with all the modern conveniences all the while maintaining simple charm compatible with surrounding environment. He brought the outdoors inside by using materials such as beautiful stone shelves. Speaking of comfort, all mattresses and pillows are NEW memory foam.....very comfortable! This feature is rare in properties such as this. I slept very well during my stay which is not always the case when sleeping away from home on unfamiliar beds.

Last but certainly not least, Julian provided 'full service' to make the most of my stay. He met my bus when I arrived and accompanied me to my bus when I departed, told me where to buy discounted admission to local attractions and where to find excellent service for my IPhone. He made sure that I had everything I required and that I was very comfortable during my stay. Julian is an excellent host!

I highly recommend this property. This property provides excellent value!

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Julian's home in La Fortuna. Julian and his family were quite hospitable. We were originally supposed to have a rental car, but did not have one due to a snafu at the San Jose airport. Instead, we hired a driver, who dropped us off at Julian's home. Initially, Julian walked into town with us to help us try and find a rental car. All were sold out; however, by taking the time to walk to town with us, he assured us that we would be fine without a car. Julian showed us that his home was just a 15 minute walk from town. He pointed out where to catch a taxi, where to by fruit and other groceries and even took time to inquire with others to help us out. It really turned out to be fine- we enjoyed our walk to town while we stayed in La Fortuna. It was beautiful. We had no problem getting a taxi when needed and were able to meet a tour company easily in town.

The house was quite comfortable for my family. We always had hot water, air conditioning, and all the room we needed. We loved the artistry of the home and within the home. We also enjoyed Julian's dog, who watched the house for us while we were away and kept us company during our stay. What a great place to ring in the new year! Pura Vida!
