Beautiful home with AMAZING view and pool

  • 5 of 5

Location:

The house is perfectly located in Rio Piedres equally distanced from either Tilaran or Nuevo Arenal (about 15 minutes to either) right off of Rt. 142 so it's easy to find. The La Fortuna area (Arenal Volcano) is about 1 hr away, and Liberia is about 1.5 hours away.

View:

The view is fantastic, with a wrap around patio and pool area complete with a barbeque station. There is a completely unobstructed view of Lake Arenal. The house has plenty of outdoor seating and I found myself sitting outside most of my stay just mesmerized by the beautiful view.

House:

The house is perfect in every way. Tastefully decorated, stocked with every single thing you could ask for including kitchenware, TV, Wifi, stereo, etc. Just bring your toiletries.

The kitchen was my favorite part of the house as I have special dietary needs, i could cook my own meals (groceries in Tilaran) in a gourmet kitchen nicer than my own! It has every utensil and gadget you could imagine and even some basic spices/supplies in case you forget something at the grocery. I went to MaxiPali in Tilaran.

Bedrooms/Baths: The house has 2 master bedrooms, both with their own private rock walled showers and rainfall shower heads. Also has beautiful vanities with vessel sinks.

Although I didn't use it, there is a clothes washer/dryer in the garage.

Property Management:

From the initial reservation and communications with Coryn, everything went smoothly. She responds quickly both prior to, and during my stay. The caretakers (Laura and her husband) live right across the street and are helpful but unobtrusive. Coryn gave me easy to find directions that brought me right to the house, and Laura heard my car and came out, so I was definitely taken care of.

Overall:

I can't recommend this home enough!!! While this was my first stay at this house, I will definitely try to use it each time I come back to the Lake Arenal area from this point forward.

The property had all amenities making life away from home comfortable and easy. The property was well maintained and clean and the property manager responded quickly when we had questions. The location was serene with breathtaking views. Lots of windows with beauty outside each one. We would definitely return!

Couldn't ask for more (except the weather)

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable 2 week stay in this lovely home despite running into an unusual streak of not so nice weather.

The home features a wide open living area with ultra modern kitchen on one end and a large sectional on the other.

Forget hotels and take advantage of this gem if you are planning a trip to Lake Arenal.

Nice property

  • 4 of 5

The house was awesome and the view was amazing. Lots of room and the pool side was great to relax by. Unfortunately the pool was a little green, although the caretaker tried to bring it back it was not usable which was sort of an inconvenience but not a major deal breaker. The inside of the house was very comfortable and had everything we needed. The property is an hour away from la Fortuna so that was handy. We really enjoyed our stay.

Excellent Location and View

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this property for seven nights in January 2017. The location is perfect for exploring the lake and nearby volcanoes.

The check-in process was effortless with Coryn meeting us in Tilaran. The road up to the house is steep and rocky but we did not have to engage the 4WD in our Suzuki Grand Vitara.

This house is large, beautiful, clean and comfortable. The view is out of this world and when it’s clear, you can see Arenal volcano perfectly. The living room furniture was different from the picture, instead of the brown sofa and love seat there was a nice big and very comfortable sectional.

The kitchen has everything you could need to prepare meals and we made use of the bbq quite often. There is no coffee provided (we borrowed from the neighbour the first morning), but there is sugar, herbs/spices and sauces.

I think the only thing this house is missing is a table and chairs for eating at on the patio. But there is still plenty of comfortable seating outside.

I would definitely stay at this property again.

Beautiful house and view

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautiful, spacious and very well equipped. The view is also really nice when it's not too cloudy. The road to Arenal volcano is about an hour and it's 2 h to Monteverde.

Rio Piedras is a small pueblo of lake arenal where daily life surrounds farming and community. There are a few local eateries and corner grocer situated alongside the rocky river that this town takes it's name from. Favorites are La Macha(best tipical food), Equus BBQ(best barbeque), and Cafe & Macadamia that is a short hike from the house and has excellent homemade bakery goods and lunch specials.

Nearby you'll enjoy the lake via wind or kite surfing, fishing, swimming, and kayaking with local guides. Horseback rides through the lush terrain with beautiful vistas can also be arranged. One of the benefits of Rio Piedras is location..about equidistant from the cloud forests of Monteverde, the sandy beaches of Guanacaste, and Volcan Arenal with it's hot springs and waterfalls nearby. It's a perfect out of the way location to enjoy the quiet meditative lake scenery, but easy to reach any of the tourist destinations that suit your fancy.
