Incredible home with breathtaking views of the Lake!

  • 5 of 5

This house was so wonderful for the 2nd week of our honeymoon. Totally private and secluded. The house has everything you need to make you feel right at home. Coryn, the house manager met us at the house upon our check in and gave us a tour of the home and answered any questions we had. She also gave us some great local tips especially the restaurants she recommended. You have to go to The Gingerbread Restaurant, this was some of the best food that I have ever eaten in my life. The staff was awesome and the food was amazing. We had such a wonderful week in the mountains and we are definitely going back. Best trip ever! Thanks Coryn.

Glimpses of Arenal Volcano

  • 4 of 5

The grounds and view of Lake Arenal from this home are gorgeous! The home is tastefully decorated with beautiful wood throughout but the sofa was quite stained, the home was not as immaculate as most of our rentals have been, and everything smelled musty. In fairness, you’re in the clouds and it rained (torrentially) here almost every day and night during our 9 day stay. The pool is beautiful but was too cold for us to use.

There’s a reason there are windmill farms and world class windsurfing at this end of the lake! 40 mph winds day and night and cool temps dictated that we could rarely sit outside and only on the leeward side of the house. We definitely enjoyed the view the brief moments the skies cleared and we loved the tranquility of this rural area. Be advised that it’s a long and winding drive to all the tourist activities of La Fortuna and Monteverde.

Loved the house/property

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this property. The house actually feels bigger than expected from the pictures. Very comfortable, unbelievable view and very well stocked kitchen. I love to cook and had everything I required.

The only small inconvenience was that the Internet was unreliable at times but was often easily fixed by a reset.

Beautiful home with AMAZING view and pool

  • 5 of 5


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.


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.


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.


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.

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.

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.
