We loved the property and the "rain forest" backyard, surrounded by beautiful flower bushes, tropical fruit trees, colorful birds and butterflies, even hummingbirds. We saw an interesting animal - Coati walking by in one morning. Excellent view of the Volcano Arenal from the porch while we enjoyed the Costa Rican coffee and delicious home made breakfast. It was truly a feel in the tropical heaven. You don't really need to travel to various Volcano viewing spot. This property gives the best viewing angle.
The house is in between Tabacon Hot Spring and La Fortuna. It is conveniently located within a short driving distance to almost every activity this area can offer, including zipline, lake water sports, volcano hiking, butterfly observatory, hot springs, waterfall, grocery, and restaurants. And yet, the location gives a healthy distance from the crowd that you can easily enjoy your privacy.
One of the highlights of our stay is the meal we had. Miriam came to cook breakfast for us every morning, from western style to local specialties. I never knew the combination of the rice and bean can be so delicious. It couldn't be any better to start a morning with the freshly cut tropical fruit platter. We loved her cooking so much that we asked her to cook a dinner for us in one of the nights. I can tell she put a lot of thoughts to it and designed a wonderful full course dinner for us. Even Mireya came to help preparing. They did such an excellent job. That dinner was one of the best meals we had in the entire trip. Thank you Miriam and Mireya.
We stayed for 3 nights, had a wonderful time, and wish it can be longer. I highly recommend this place and certainly will come back again.
