VILLA TRENTINO

Villa Trentino is a beautiful home located just a 10 minute-walk from the central park of La Fortuna, very close to main restaurants, tour companies, souvenir stores, supermarkets, pharmacies, etc. All that the town has to offer.

Villa Trentino is located in the 'Valle del Volcan', one of the best neighborhoods in town, where locals and many foreigners have moved to this corner of paradise to enjoy the 'PURA VIDA' !

Villa Trentino was built in European design with a 1200 m2 garden, with a wide variety of ornamental plants and fruit trees; as well as hummingbirds, toucans, and a variety of different bird species. Only 300 m from the property runs Habana River where you are can swim in its natural pools, surrounded by a pristine forest, where sometimes families of howler monkeys are seen roaming the trees.

At Villa Trentino we have a fully equipped and furnished cottage (cable television, internet, kitchen, laundry, etc). This is to provide our guests with the best appliances and commodities just as if you were in your own home. The house is built on two floors, on the ground floor: lounge, kitchen and laundry; on the top floor: two bedrooms, bathroom and a terrace from which you can appreciate the great views of majestic Arenal Volcano, located right in front of the property. The house has been designed so that any of your rooms have a spectacular view of the volcano, day or night you can watch the daily activity of the colossus.

Next to the house and the gardens, that are completely fenced off, we have undercover parking for your car. Also a covered BBQ area and hammocks ,totally available for you to enjoy in absolute privacy.

We offer all the tours available in the area of La Fortuna (volcano hikes, hot springs, rafting, zip-lines, canyoning, horseback riding etc.).All of this with special prices for our guests.

Villa Trentino is ideal for families and for peace-loving people. Do not think twice, if you want to visit and enjoy La Fortuna we are your best choice. It will be a pleasure for us to share this piece of paradise!.

A fantastic stay on a beautiful property with kind and accommodating hosts.

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from a 6 day and 5 night stay at Villa Trentino, and we miss it already! My husband, daughter and I loved the house and the hosts. Stefano and his wife were very helpful when booking tours or recommending local places to eat and visit. Every morning Stefano would greet us with a delicious bunch of fresh avocados that were gathered from the yard, and help us plan our day ahead. My 7 year old daughter loved watching Stefano cut open coconuts from the yard and prepare them. We enjoyed the delicious coconut water and pulp in the days to come. Stefano also helped us prepare our barbecue ahead of time and the villa is equipped with all the supplies. I'm a huge bird lover so every morning I would sit on the porch and bird watch. The property is surrounded by at least 15 species of birds ranging from hummingbirds to their national bird (Clay colored Thrush). We were also lucky enough to observe a flock of Toucans flying right next to the property which was so special and my daughter squeaked with delight. We traveled during the rainy season but that didn't bother us at all and truth be told, it made everything even more luscious and green. The AC in the main bedroom worked really well but the smaller bedroom AC took a very long time to cool so I would say if it is really hot, you may want to pre-cool the room ahead of time. The kitchen had all utensils and cooking supplies. There was fresh coffee for brewing but if you are a tea lover as myself, make sure you buy or bring some along. The Baldi Hot Springs were very beautiful and worth checking out, but we would recommend skipping the dinner buffet option.The food was mediocre and totally overpriced. We paid an additional $20 dollars per person and were very disappointed. Either eat a nice hearty meal before going or eat right after in town. Restaurants in La Fortuna are super cheap and open late, and we never paid more than $30 for 3 people for a delicious meal. Rainforest Cafe is a great place for breakfast and lunch, and The Red Frog is wonderful for lunch and early dinner. We did a variety of tours, ranging from cultural to adventurous and all were fantastic. Make sure to do the following: Don Olivo Chocolate Tour, Proyecto Asis (animal rehab center), and Arenal Rafting. Memories for a lifetime!!!

Thank you so much to the wonderful hosts of Villa Trentino!!!

Sending much love from NYC,

Anna, Rafael, and Nadia.

Thanks also to mention our efforts to make our guests feel as confortable as possible, and thanks also to mention the secondary room´s air conditioning little issue...your mail let us know about it, so we could call the air con guys and they could quickly solve the problem ( it just needed a little bit of gas to work again perfectly...). It was a real pleasure for my wife and me to have you family here like our guests... persons so educated like you make our job an easy one...Thank you !!! Stefano y Yorlenny

Wonderful stay in La Fortuna

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Villa Trentino really puts you in the mindset of the Costa Rican lifestyle. The beautiful gardens (Stefano even prepared us a coconut from one of his trees) and house offer you everything you need and is in a local La Fortuna neighborhood. The house has air conditioning in the upstairs bedrooms where you will spend most of your time when not out exploring and adventuring. You're just about a 5-10 minute walk from the town where you can browse shops, eat great Casadas, see the park, and more. Stefano is a great host who will recommend wonderful tours and arrange them, according to your preferences. Trust him, he will not steer you wrong!

Perfect little family home

  • 5 of 5

This was a great little house for our family of four to base our adventures out of. Stephano was the most gracious host who ensured all of our adventures were reserved in advance and all of our transportation needs met. We made lifetime memories here.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Party of 4, this was the perfect location. Close to all the restaurants and activities, yet far enough away from the traffic. Stefano was great at providing directions and input on activities, the grounds are immaculate and the home is quite charming. All the necessary nessecities are at hand, we couldn't of asked for anything more!

Thank you Stefano for the hospitality! Hope we can come back to Villa Trentino soon.

Perfect Costa Rican Family Home

  • 5 of 5

We booked Villa Trentino after thorough research and reading a lot of reviews. Stefano and Yorlenny went over and above our expectations. The cottage is cute, clean, and very comfortable with everything we needed. The surrounding garden is beautiful and safe. Morning coffee on the porch is a must.

Stefano is a host-extraordinaire! His email communications during the months that led up to the trip we're very helpful, and when we arrived, he worked with us to understand our needs and then set up the majority of our outings. All of his recommendations were perfect and we really wish we could have stayed longer!

Muchas gracias Stefano y Yorlenny!

Recommendations on things to do:

Don Olivo's chocolate tour - trust us and Stefano. We learned and ate a lot!

Baldi over Tabacon - so much more and less expensive. But the buffet dinner wasn't very good. Save the money and go to Nene's.

Sky Adventure - we loved our three hour hanging bridges rainforest walk. The zip lines and everything else they had to offer looked amazing, but we were pressed for time and did the zip lines through Los Canones and had a blast there too.

Pura Vida!

A true gem in paradise - don't hesitate, just book it!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely time in La Fortuna and our stay at Villa Trentino made it all possible. The house was perfect for our family of 4, and it's location made it easy to explore all that La Fortuna has to offer.

Stefano spent so much time telling us all about the options and his recommendations for the area and he was spot on with everything! We did the Chocolate tour, Baldi Hot Springs, Proyecto Asis, and La Fortuna waterfall. We also did Sky Walk and Arenal Observatory Lodge. He lives right on site and was so easy to work with, he made all of our arrangements for us.

The air conditioning in the bedrooms was so helpful because it was much hotter than we were expecting. It was hot in the rest of the house but we just used the fans and we were fine. There's not a lot of space to relax in the main floor of the house (just 2 wood chairs in addition to the dining table), but we weren't there to hang out in the house all day!

The kitchen was well stocked and had everything we needed. The house is in a nice neighborhood and even has a gated property for more security. It was a little too rainy to sue the outdoor area but it seems nice to have a place outdoors too. Views of the volcano are spectacular.

Don't hesitate to book the property. You won't be disappointed!
