Casa Blanca 'Costa Rica Perfection'

Bathrooms5
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 2 nights

Overview

About the property

Casa Blanca at Lake Arenal features four wonderful homes. Villa I, a 2200 square foot two bedroom, two bath home. This home has exquisite lake views across the entire living area and master with a large guest room featuring double door walk outs to the front patio courtyard and tropical garden area.

Villa II is a mirror image of Villa I, a 2200 square foot two bedroom, two bath home. This home has exquisite lake views across the entire living area and master with a large guest room featuring double door walk outs to the front patio courtyard and tropical garden area

The Junior Villa is a large 1000 square foot, large master home with lake views while lying in bed or again throughout the entire living area. We provide free Wi-Fi on the property via DSL.

Cottage I is a hotel room size stand alone Villa with beautiful hardwood floors, a beautiful kitchenette with a queen master and large bathroom with a smart T.V and DSL WiFi internet.

NOTE: Since we have four separate Villas and we're only allowed one price on VRBO the initial pricing reflects our Jr Villa pricing. Please let us know the Villa you're interested in so that we can provide you the proper quote.

The estate was designed as a multi split level property allowing incredible views from all homes and creating additional privacy as the Junior Villa sits 20 feet below Villa I and Villa II is 70 feet below the Junior Villa. We have just recently planted our hillside with a wide variety of tropical fruits that our guests are welcome to enjoy. Papaya, Mango, Star Fruit, Pineapple, Avocado and limes just to name a few. The home is located in a gated community shared by only 4 other homes.

Each house is sitting on multiple acres, again making for incredible privacy. The homes feature separate, state of the art security systems. All operated by a hand held remote control “the size of a keyless car alarm”. Whether you are in town for dinner or a day on the lake you will have peace of mind knowing that your personal effects are safe and secure. Casa Blanca at Lake Arenal is only a mile from the town of Nuevo Arenal.

Nuevo Arenal has two grocery stores, two banks with ATM’s, a pharmacy, gift shops and a gas station as well as a farmers market and several bars and restaurants. The town is only a few minute drive or an easy 15 minute walk from the house. Located at the base of the community is the Gingerbread recently rated as the #1 restaurant in Costa Rica.

As a courtesy to our guests we will never have two quests on the property at the same time. So just choose the home that best suits your needs and enjoy all that Costa Rica has to offer. We sincerely hope you enjoy your visit to Casa Blanca and I can always be reached via cell phone at 602-791-5363 should you have any questions or require help with any part of your visit to Costa Rica..

A slice of tranquility with views that will not be forgotten.

  • 5 of 5

...Marc has created a space that embraces the beauty of lake Arenal. The two 12' french sliding doors provide an indoor/outdoor atmosphere we truly loved! Whether utilizing the property as your private sanctuary or a base camp for adventure activities, you will not be disappointed!

ps - the on site manager, Ty, was a fabulous resource for providing information on local activities and booking tours.

Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here 3 nights and loved the place. It has a magnificent view of Lake Arenal and probably the surrounding mountains, but we never really saw the mountain peaks because it rained every day and the peaks were always enshrouded by clouds. The hot tub was great but it does take a little while to warm up. It was fun to sit in with the warm rain coming down. The wireless internet and television were trying. The service was probably off more than on but that's not what we were there for. If we ever come back to Costa Rica we'd love to stay here again.

BETTER THAN THE PICTURES!

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of staying at Casa Blanca with a group of 8 friends during our visit to Nuevo Arenal. This property is better than the pictures you see online. I was amazed by the layout, decor, and of course the views! You don't get sick of staring at the beautiful scenery around you. The property manager Ty was so welcoming and helpful, we are truly grateful for all of his help! I would love to come back and spend more time exploring the adventures of La Fortuna which is a short drive away from Casa Blanca.

Unique Villa, Amazing Views!!!

  • 5 of 5

Me, my wife, and our two young daughters spent five weeks in Costa Rica and stayed 3 nights at Villa II. We spent most of our time at the beaches but were happy we went inland to Nuevo Arenal for a few nights. The villa is beautifully decorated with local art and the the furnishings are very comfortable. However, the view from the patio steals the show, it is fantastic! Marc and Ty were easy to work with and everything was taken care for us prior to our arrival. We highly recommend these Villas for a trip to Arenal.

Costa Rica Luxury

  • 5 of 5

Nine of us (two families with 5 kids total) stayed here in July. Marc was super responsive and answered all of my questions before we got there. We stayed in Villa I and Villa II, and both were extremely nice. We really enjoyed the hot tub, the views from the entire property and the hammocks on the deck. Tyler handled all of our questions when we were there, and set us up on a couple awesome adventure tours (rafting, ziplining) in Fortuna. Would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting all the adventure of Costa Rica, without the touristy hotels in Fortuna. Thanks to Tyler and Marc for making our vacation a huge success.

Unique Luxury Villa, Inspired by Nature

  • 5 of 5

Eight of us stayed in three of the villas at Casa Blanca in June, 2016. Marc was awesome during the booking process, and once we were on-site, we were under Ty's wing. The property is amazing, and all the locals know and love the owners and Ty, so they will roll out the red carpet. The views, decor, construction, design....simply stunning. This place is a delight. We had the trip of a lifetime to Costa Rica this summer. It all started when we walked into the door at Casa Blanca. tips: listen to Ty. Eat at Gingerbread. Add another day onto your stay, the beach can wait. We never did get to see the top of the volcano, shrouded during our short 2 nights/three days. Loved Mistico and Tabacon and Mundo Aventure Park for ziplining. We are in our 50s. Now's the time to do this with your family, take it from us and go. Much love to the owners and to Ty for helping us make these memories.
