Life in the Lake Arenal area is something really special with the year round warm weather, the friendly people and all the outdoor activities offered here. We enjoy kiteboarding on the lake, riding our horses on trial rides right from our house, and raising our family in this safe, eco friendly community.

We've had a house in this area since 1996. We originally came here for vacations and windsurfing. We sold the original house in 2005 and bought another piece of land just up the hill that has fantastic views and is at the end of our road so is quiet and private. We love it here and plan to stay in the area indefinitely.

The people of Costa Rica are a uniquely friendly and welcoming culture. We've fallen in love with the 'Pura Vida' or pure life idea here. Most of our food is grown on farms in the area, the air is fresh, the water clean and the attitude of the people is one of family values and community. These things combined with plenty of outdoor recreation keeps us healthy and happy.

GREAT HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
we spent 3 nights here- great spot to visit La Fortuna & Lake area and close enough to drive to Monteverde. Shena, the house owner was great to deal with and offered information on dining options in the area. We didn't spend that much time in the house as we were out exploring the whole time. The view of the lake is amazing and has great sunset views! Beautiful, new house!

LOVELY HOME

  • 4 of 5
We stayed for 9 nights at this house in November. It was a brand new, 2 bed/2 bath home in a convenient location. It was clean both inside and out. It was very well built and easily stood the test of rain and wind. It has two living room walls that are floor to ceiling windows facing the lake--beautiful views. The road was less than 5 minutes off the main lake road and it was quite good compared to some roads we have traveled in the past. I would, though, recommend a 4WD SUV as it is a rocky road...the driveway to the house is nice paved.

I would have rated it 5 stars had it been fully furnished. Because the house has 2 bedrooms and can easily accommodate 4 people, it really needs a sofa and a couple of chairs in the living room. Also, a nightstand in each bedroom would be helpful to place your alarm clock, glasses, etc. A couple of folding or plastic chairs would be nice for sitting out on the balcony. There is no tv but that was fine with us as we had busy schedules every day. It would be nice if a data card were offered for internet use. Possibly, charge a refundable deposit for it so it doesn't make its way off the property.

All in all, it was a beautiful home with beautiful views in a convenient location. The owners were very nice and helpful. We would definitely stay there again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the good review and the feedback. I really appreciate it and will be following your advice for improving the house to make it more comfortable for you and other future guests, there is already a full sized sofa that has been added since your stay. Thank you and hope to see you again!
