The property is like a tongue sticking out above Lake Arenal which is surrounded by mountains. It is convenient since it is just off the main road and only minutes from Arenal. The house is clean and well maintained and has new furniture and appliances. Ed and Leslie were extremely helpful and nice to deal with. Arenal has several groceries and restaurants. We purchased a prepaid SIM cards and our US phones worked everywhere and could even call the States. We didn't need to use the AC very much because there were breezes from the mountains and the lake. There were lots of outdoor activities in the area.
