First traveled to Costa Rica in 2001 and fell in love with the country, the people and the lifestyle.

Greg or Donna purchased this house in 2011

We love this area of Costa Rica because there is so much to do and see with our children and friends..

Cool at night and mid seventies during the day usually perfect weather

GOOD HOUSE, NOT SO GOOD LOCATION AND EVEN WORSE ACCESS

  • 2 of 5
First off let me say that the house is great, large, well appointed, phenomenal views. Also Greg and Donna are very professional to work with. Property is well maintained and the caretaker Luis is very helpful, we would not have lived here for 5 days without his help

Now for the not so good part

- The location is outside of Nuevo Fortuna, a good 50 min ride away from the center which is La Fortuna and where you would spend most of your time so plan accordingly

- The access to the house is really bad. It is a poorly maintained dirt road up the mountain for about 1.5 Km which makes for a rough ride to the house especially at night. You HAVE to have a bigger SUV with 4 wheel drive to get up there and access the house. You have to plan your grocery runs well in advance as the store is a same bad road back down the mountain

All in all I say buyer beware !

Owner's Response: We are very happy that you loved the amenities and home overlooking Lake Arenal. We try to make sure that all of our guests enjoy their stay at our home but unfortunately we cannot insure that they follow the instructions on our rental paperwork. It states on the Rental Agreement about using a 4x4 and I spoke to you before your trip and specifically told you that a 4x4 is needed since you are traveling to a rainforest and many roads are gravel. The entry road into the community is a gravel road just as many are in Costa Rica. It was scheduled for its bi-annual grading but the crew was behind and are just showing up while I am here now at the House. The upper access road is being upgraded to concrete to try and prevent any of our clients that don't follow our directions about getting a 4x4 from having any problems at our home again. We want all of our guests to have a great vacation and come back again and again. We thank you for staying with us and and you can see your comments are always helpful in making our home the best it can be for our guests. Thank you. Pura Vida

LAKE ARENAL

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay in your beautiful home in Lake Arenal. The pictures did not show the real beauty of this home and the actual view of the lake from each bedroom. The home was well furnished and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook our meals with when we actually ate in. The nearby town of Nuevo Arenal was small but had a 24 hour gas station, German bakery, Ice cream shop, grocery stores, Banks and some of the best restaurants I have ever eaten at. Gingerbread Restaurant was awesome. We did a Kayak tour locally on the lake and also horseback riding. The kids loved that. Then we went to La Fortuna which is about 40 minutes away. We went waterfall rappelling and then to Baldi hot springs and relaxed and rode the awesome slides there. Make sure you buy your tickets in town at one of the discount booths. They are alot cheaper than buying at the gate. Our last day we went into La Fortuna again to do the Zip Line right next to the Arenal Volcano. Hard to explain the feeling of being next to something that large and powerful. Our 1 week stay gave us enough time to enjoy the locals and all the great things to do in this area. Greg and Donna were great to work with. A 4 wheel drive vehicle was recommended while traveling in this area (which we did get) because you are in the rainforest and alot of the roads are gravel. Everyone had a great time and no one wanted to leave. Thanks for an amazing vacation! We will definitly be back again...
