Volcano Arenal House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

The beautiful cottage retreat is the perfect home away from home! This property is set in the heart of the village, close to the local restaurants, the grocery store and lots of fun activities. The village of El Castillo is tucked in the rainforest, in the mountains, on lake Arenal. Home to about 240 'ticos' and about 12 Americans, this village has lots to offer! If it is action and adventure you are looking for try zip-lining through the rainforest at Sky Trek Adventures or go exploring on horseback to one of the three waterfalls and take a swim. Kayaking is always fun and what a way to catch some sun and some fish!! Go rappelling or canyoning at Rancho Margot or white water rafting for even more adventure. You can go to The Butterfly Conservatory or The Snake Zoo all right here in Castillo! When it is time to unwind after a long day of adventure, nothing will soothe your bones like a soak in the free Hot Springs! This village may be small, but can pack a huge vacation!

We will be happy to book any of these local attractions at no charge to you:

* Hanging Bridges

* Zip Lines

* Hot Springs

* ATV and other rentals

* Butterfly Conservatory

* Eco-Snake Zoo

* Horseback Riding

* Volcano Hikes

* Rafting

* Canyoning and Rappelling

* Bird Watching

* Swimming

* Much more

This home away from home is a true gem!

DREAM HONEYMOON

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I booked fairly last minute with Nancy and she was extremely helpful with providing information and helping us book a car rental though I would say to any future travellers rent a GPS and put 'Butterfly Conservatory' into the GPS as a handy trick to find the place since street names don't really exist ;) The GPS was invaluable. So was Nancy's aid in booking excursions and providing information on the area. I highly recommend the horseback riding, it was my favourite part of the trip. As for the cottage itself there was a kitchen with a very nice stove, 2 bedrooms, dining bench, bathroom, shower, laundry room, and TV living room type area. Everything was very clean (though don't be surprised to find bugs now and then, it is Costa Rica and they aren't that scary) and there were plenty of towels. The view from the balcony was amazing and I would spend every morning sitting in the hammock reading and watching the birds fly by. We liked the option of the 2 bedrooms because in spite of it being just the two of us we could chose which one we found more comfortable. The locals were all friendly and a week simply wasn't long enough in this area so we'll have to return some day :D

GREAT LOCATION & LOVELY HOUSE

Great location & Lovely house
  • 4 of 5
We spent 3 days during our last Costa Rica vacations in la Fortuna. The house was clean and everything was ready for our arrival. The view from the Hammock toward the Arenal Volcano was just bluffing. The neighborhood was very quite.

Nancy has been a great help during our trip. From booking activities to getting a local restaurant address, she made our stay more serene.

I would recommend this rental without reservations.

CHARMING COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4 stayed at this cottage for 3 nights. We wish we could have stayed longer. The cottage is perfect. With a washer and dryer, wireless, comfortable beds and a great view from the hammock. It is located about 10k off the highway on a dirt road in a small village called El Castillo. You will definately need a car.

Additionally, Nancy, the owner was so helpful in helping us book activities and giving us information on the area. Her recommendation for horseback riding turned out to be the ride of a lifetime with Leelander at Appaloosa Farms. Her recommendation for SkyTrek, was by far the best ziplining we have ever done.

Thanks Nancy!

CHARMING COTTAGE WITH FABULOUS VIEW!

  • 5 of 5
This little cottage is charming, has a beautiful yard and the deck out back has an unbelivable view of the Arenal volcano and lake! The murals on the walls are delightful!
We enjoyed our stay in this little village of El Castillo. It is a great location to get to everything. Nancy was a great hostess - got us a rental car immediately when we inquiried about it. We personally think you need a car here - at least, we did. Be sure to go to Nancy and Z's bar, Howlers - great view of the lake. Their french fries were delicious-the hamburgers and hot dogs look great also but we are not red meat eaters so we didn't try them.
Try the soda across from the church - we had the best grilled Talapia fillet I think we have ever had there. Be sure to check out the Butterfly Conservatory - it is just up the road from the cottage. It was extremely interesting. Also, be sure to go to the hot springs at Tabacon. We spent a whole day there - wonderful!. If you are going to spend the whole day, go ahead and pay for the lunch or dinner. It is cheaper than buying the meal by itself. We enjoyed sitting on the deck, looking at the fabulous view and birds, sipping wine - that makes life good! The people of Costa Rica are lovely - so warm and friendly.
Pura Vida!

QUIET VACATION,FRIENDLY NEIGHBORS!

  • 5 of 5
We have just finished two weeks here at casa mirador, and it has been amazing! the kids have loved playing in the yard, going exploring and playing tag with the neighboring kids at pizza johns! The neighbors are helpful and friendly, and nancy was a great hostess. Any minor hiccups that occurred were dealt with as fast as they could. Overall the house is located excellent with an amazing view. Clean an very comfortable. I think we may be the first guests to stay here, and would definately come back!

THE PERFECT HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I got our first opportunity to travel together and decided to rent a house in El Castillo. This house was SO PERFECT! We had the opportunity to explore the small town, being so close to everything! We didn't have a car so it worked out. The house was so beautiful; the colorful murals on the walls, the relaxing bedrooms, all the kitchen amenities, and the AMAZING view from the backyard!! Nancy and Z were the absolute best in handling any questions we had about the town and booking our itinerary! Going horseback riding, ziplining, and white water rafting made our trip one of the best experiences I've ever had. I'm already planning on returning, but this time I'm bringing the whole family!!!
