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.

This property exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Very nice house and superb location overlooking Lake Arenal

  • 4 of 5

Meeting our hostess was smooth and the drive to the house easy and fairly quick. The setting of the house / the view/ was excellent. Probably one of the finest in the area. The house was spacious and comfortable. Sitting by the pool and looking out to the lake was grand...it was like we were riding the clouds looking out at the lake. So nice.

Some things needed attention....screens on windows have holes or gaps so it is easy for bugs to come inside once the lights were on in the evening. The owner really needs to have screens that actually fit windows...Our first night, hundreds of small, flying bugs came in through these gaps/holes in screens and we basically had to turn the lights off inside and turn them on outside to draw them out. Our caretaker gave us tape to cover up these breeches and after that, this situation was much better. However, I wasn't happy about having to play exterminator on our first evening there. My other suggestion would be to have queen size beds...not doubles....It's a little tight. The mattresses could have been more comfortable and it would be nice to be able to have an extra blanket for the chilly night but alas, there were none.

Lastly, Nicaragua makes very comfortable hammocks....large enough for 2 people and large enough so that you won't fall out....Make a run up there and get a couple.....it would really add to the overall "chill factor." And one more thing....we always get a good book to go on vacation with....The lighting in the Living room was not bright enough for my older eyes nor my 21 year old daughters....so we moved lamps to help us see and read....We surely can't be the only folks that read at night and need good light?

I would recommend this rental with a more enthusiastic heart if these little details were addressed. Lake Arenal is spectacular.
