Why Beverly Smith chose Nuevo Arenal

After several vacations to other areas of Costa Rica, my wife and I have chosen the Lake Arenal area as a future retirement home. We fell in love with this house at first sight because of the wonderful privacy, lake view, the restful sounds of the waterfall and stream, and the pristine condition of the home and property.

What makes this house unique

The total relaxation of the Zen-like atmosphere (waterfalls, jungle sounds, bamboo swaying in the breeze), cool breezes and total protection from the elements all within close proximity to shopping and tourist activities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Richard and Bev, just a quick note to let you know how awesome your house was- I nicknamed it "The Tree house" . What a little piece of paradise you have at the side of Lake Arenal. Clearly you are in good hands with Ed and Leslie, they were very nice and helpful.We loved it there and are completely spoilt for all other accommodations now we have stayed at your house. Thanks for letting us use it

Excellent property!

  • 5 of 5
We (three adults and three children) just spent six nights on this house. The house was beautiful, clean and comfortable. Ed, the property manager, provided excellent service.
However, future guests should consider that it takes about an hour to get from the house to La Fortuna, where most of the activities take place. If you are looking for a place to simply relax, this is it. If you are looking to be close to the action, I would suggest renting a place near La Fortuna.

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5
This was my second stay at this home. It is perfect in everyway!! Very comfortable. The sleeping area is on the ground floor. The living area is upstairs which makes enjoying the view of the Rainforest perfect . The wrap around porch is the perfect place to start the day with a cup of coffee watching the day wake up. The birds are beautiful. The nearby restaurants are outstanding. We really enjoyed The Ginger Bread and Moya's. All the Zip Line, hiking, waterfalls, hot springs etc. are only about 45 minute drive. The drive is beautiful. The locals are friendly and helpful. This was a girls getaway. The three of us had the BEST time!!

Fantastic Vacation in this Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5
I spent a week in this beautiful location in April. The house was very clean and equipped with everything needed for our great vacation. The setting was spectacular ... I thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the large porch watching and listening to the birds. I have never seen so many colorful birds in any location I visited ... my favorites were the toucans. I am prone to insect bites, so I was worried whether I'd have a problem here. I didn't get bit at all ... yay!! This was surprising to me since we were right in the tree tops looking out at a fabulous array of trees, plants and flowers. There are numerous adventures near this property and we took advantage of it! We went zip lining, walked on the hanging bridges, visted the hot mineral springs, hiked down to a waterfall, had a massage ... wonderful! The restaurants nearby were great also. I especially liked Gingerbread and Moya's. I would highly recommend this house .... beautiful ... surpassed my expectations!!

Our birthday getaway

  • 5 of 5
We arrived after dark and Ed Wood, the caretaker, kindly met us and escorted us to the house. It is a piece of paradise. It had everything we needed or wanted. Ed even provided us with food for our first of many breakfast on the terrace. We did have many adventures, hanging bridges, sky tram, cano negro, adventurous auto ride around the lake. We were always happy to see the gate to our home in paradise. Where else can you eat breakfast and see toucan, parrots and hear howler monkeys. We slept with the windows open and the cool air blowing and listening to the waterfalls. We stayed for a week and felt like we were at home. The restaurants in the area are very good. Bev's information about the area was spot on. Bev, now we see why you love this area so much. If returning to Costa Rica we would return to Casa Cascada

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review, I am so happy you enjoyed sitting on the deck, one of our favorite activities, sipping delicious Costa Rican coffee in the A.M.,watching for the many varieties of birds to arrive, then doing the same with a nice glass of wine in the evening after a day of adventure. You chose the same activities we have experienced and loved.

Truly feels like a home away from home

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed in several homes in Costa Rica in this price range over the last three years. I have never given one a five star rating because I think they need to be extra special to achieve that rating. Casa Cascada is very nicely appointed, the master bedroom is lovely with a super comfortable king bed. The small gated community is beautiful and seems very secure. Ed, the manager, met us at the house and provided us with coffee, eggs, bread, milk, butter and orange juice for the following morning breakfast in case we did not want to go to the grocery store shortly after our arrival! The house is well stocked with the basics for cooking, cleaning, laundry detergent and other items which travelers might needs. Also, it is very, very clean and that is a big deal to us. Note: The waterfall is really more of a trickle during the dry season. Richard and Bev, the owners, supplied excellent information as to location, activities, and places to eat.

As one reviewer pointed out, the Arenal area attractions such as the volcano, hanging bridges, Sky Trek and Tram take quite a bit longer to get to than driving from the Fortuna side. However, if you are looking for serenity and relaxation, don't want the ultra touristy commotion of Fortuna, and don't mind the longer drive to the attractions, this is the place for you. You definitely have to have a car.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for this review, it means a lot to us that you took the time to be so thoughtful. We are so fortunate to have our A team, Ed and Leslie making sure our guests are comfortable and well informed, what a super job they do for us! I agree the drive around the lake is an adventure, but the scenery is worth it, and arriving at our lush, tropical paradise is the pay-off. The activities within the 45min.drive are numerous, and as a home owner, we like the fact that we are not too close to an active volcano! We hope you can return, we appreciate guests like you.

4days in Arenal

  • 5 of 5
We stay 4 days in Casa Cascada my familly and I. The house is wonderfull and peacefull. Ed took care of everything, made our arrival so easy and help us when we needed. We love the balcony where we had beackfast each morning. Everyone should go to Gingerbread, the best food so far in Costa Rica. Moyas pizza are also amazing, we stop by and took the pizzas with us to eat home. You need a car, expect to drive between 30 min to 45 min to go to majot sites. We did zip lines, horse and hanging bridges. Thank you to Ed, Bev and Richard for making our stay a great souvenir
