Each bedroom has great views.

We have an experienced property manager (English speaking) and two gardeners that keep the property meticulously maintained. Upon arrival, please feel free to ask what fresh fruit is available so our gardeners can deliver some to your door or pick it for yourself.
We are able to assist with planning and reserving many exotic adventures such as boating, biking, zip-lining, horseback riding, nature hiking, white-water rafting, hot springs, cave exploring, kayaking, canoeing and more... Cost for each tour is different and information is made available after confirmation of booking.
We are only 2.5km (1.5 miles) outside the Town of Nuevo Arenal. Close to shopping, tours and dining. Our location makes a perfect base for those wanting to explore all Costa Rica has to offer or just relax and enjoy our property and the many species of flora, fauna and wildlife.

About Bret Fields
We stumbled upon this property and immediately knew it was special. We have worked hard to keep the property pristine and to keep it as natural as possible. We hope our guests can appreciate the natural beauty this property has to offer as much as we do.
Why Bret Fields chose Nuevo Arenal
Our property is situated approximately 1.5 miles (2.5km) above the town of Nuevo Arenal.. There are over 3 miles of roads and trails throughout the property, several ponds, and many species of flora, fauna and wildlife. In addition to the 7-8 springs/creeks that run through the property, we have a 1 acre naturally refreshed swimming pond that is great for a refreshing dip after a long hike.
What makes this house unique
We have many exotic orchids that grow on the property and our property is host to endangered wildlife.... safe but endangered. You will also see many different varieties of birds and flowers that make Costa Rica the most bio-diverse country that it is... please enjoy.
Guestbook comments from the owner
person found this review helpful
Our family of six greatly enjoyed our two weeks at this beautiful property. The house is large and modern and four bedrooms. The TV room is far from the living and bed rooms, which is nice since some of the family could watch TV without waking others who were sleeping.
The property is amazing--miles of paths to walk on, ranging from paved driveways to hidden jungle trails that we didn't find until several days into our trip. There is lots of wildlife and many nice views.
We enjoyed picking fresh fruit and vegetables from the orchard and garden (which saved us a lot on groceries). The house is a couple kilometers from the town of Nuevo Arenal, which is very pleasant and has everything you need--groceries, bank, gas, etc. Previous commenters complained about the rough road, but it is actively being repaired and about a quarter of the length was completely graded and re-stoned during our stay.
The manager was very helpful in arranging housecleaning, a nanny, Spanish lessons, and cooking--the entire staff was excellent, including the gardener who arranged horseback riding on the property.
I highly recommend this property.
