ARENAL, LAKE ARENAL, LAKE VIEW CABINA & BEAUTIFUL GARDENS

Arenal Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)

Cabina Arenal... This terrific 'Rustico' two story plus loft lake view home is available for nightly, weekly or monthly reservation. This property is located two kilometers east of Nuevo Arenal, on the road from Nuevo Arenal towards the Volcano. The Cabina is a safe distance, 22 miles.. from the currently NOT very active volcano, (more reason to stay at the lake!!). Tabacon... It is only a 30 minute, and now paved drive to the amazing thermal waters of Rio Tabacon, located in the Red Zone of this spectacular sight, Volcano Arenal. The Arenal region of Costa Rica is truly beautiful and should not be missed! The wonderful gardens of this neighborhood and this homesite on Lake Arenal make Cabina Arenal one of the most beautiful locations to be found anywhere.

Located within the lush and tropical garden setting of the Northern Highlands, Cabina Arenal is situated atop a landscaped 16 acre private and gated enclave of home sites. This location is very attractive and provides the most beautiful panoramic views this area has to offer. This property has paved access, no back roads and is in a secure gated community. Lake access is a moderate walk or short drive to either the private facilities of Marina Lago Arenal, where there are boats and kayaks for hire, or the Town Park primitive marina facilities.

This two story plus loft cabina is best suited to a couple or small family. **The loft is not suited for young children**

Cabina Arenal includes everything needed to stay in simple comfort. The kitchen is compact but offers everything needed to prepare meals along with an outdoor BBQ for grilling and complete cookware! The toilet / shower and kitchen share this space together on the lower level. The toilet is screened. An outside staircase is used to get to main and lower level. Please keep that in mind! This house has unlimited central hot water, a good thing as this is rustic Costa Rica! Go to the link below for more pictures.

This home has a stack washer and dryer a high quality frost free refrigerator, microwave oven, propane gas two burner cook top inside, full size outdoor BBQ with griddle, toaster, waffle iron, coffee maker and blender! The main level offers a quality new Queen size bed, breakfast table and chairs, rocking chairs, 2 dressers and side tables. There is a 9 inch dvd player for the nights at home. A small collection of movies and a small collection of good books are there too! The open loft above provides a great extra sleeping space. With the futon opened up to make a bed or set as a sofa, it is a great breezy space to take in the views of Lake Arenal, Volcano Tenorio and the jungle! Large windows open to allow the refreshing trade wind's to pass through the cabin. While Cabina Arenal does not have TV or internet, Internet access is available at the nearby internet cafe in town. The Gingerbread does have satellite in the very nice lounge area that is a popular gathering spot for the locals of Arenal to enjoy! Cabina Arenal offers an excellent new home in an exceptional highlands location on beautiful Lake Arenal!

A two wheel drive vehicle will work here, as the roads are well paved going to either San Jose or Liberia Airport. 4 wheel drive is needed if going out into the back country! Public buses are accessible on the Lake/Volcano road, at the entrance to this property to all destinations in the country. Thank you for looking!

Pictures do not do this place justice!!!

  • 5 of 5
We arrived here on December 23rd and stayed until January 6th. As we were on our way to the cottage, we kept saying " Oh man, I hope our view is this pretty." Much to our surprise...the view is more than we ever expected. WOW. It is more beautiful than anywhere we've ever stayed. The house was perfect. We went to Nuevo Arenal to the grocery store about 5 minutes away and bought food for our stay. We cooked out on the grill and had wonderful dinners with the windows open and the perfect breeze coming in. It was amazing! We drove into La Fortuna almost everyday for our excursions and it was about an hour each way which didn't bother us because the drive is so beautiful. It took us about 3-1/2 hours to get to Jaco where we went for New Year's Eve. All the roads are great any way you go around the lake. We loved the peaceful nights and the coffee in the early mornings. I was very appreciative for the washer & dryer lol. Being there for 2 weeks and we definitely needed it. Thank you Dan for allowing us to enjoy your home. We can't even begin to express how wonderful you made our honeymoon by letting us use your house. The hammock was so relaxing to just lay and read and take a nap. OMGoodness I could not say enough about this place. Breath Taking. We are definitely spreading the word about this little piece of Heaven. Thanks again.

Perfect Romantic Getaway and Tropical Escape

  • 5 of 5
We had an incredible experience in this amazing cottage. We didn't know what to expect as we climbed to the top of the hill, on the little driveway that is surrounded by walls of tropical foliage. When we opened the gate, we realized we had this entire area all to ourselves, totally surrounded by the most incredible landscaping of colorful flowers and green everywhere. The birds chirped all around us, monkeys howling in the trees. The house itself had big picture windows on every side and we were screened in to keep out the bugs, but be right in nature. The view of the lake and mountains straight ahead were spectacular.

We did yoga on the front lawn in the morning, had romantic candle-lit dinners at night (that we grilled up in the full kitchen) and slept restfully in our private slice of heaven! We loved every ounce of our stay here and were so sad to leave. Highly recommend this for those seeking privacy off the beaten path, with a touch of luxury. Loved, loved, loved it!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5
We spent 12 nights at this wonderful little house. The view was amazing. We made breakfast every morning and sat outside watching the birds and the lake.

The owner was very helpful before our stay and during (he allowed us to stay an extra night). The property was in great condition, even a paved driveway. The location is great and the listing description is spot on.

We can't wait to go back again and stay at the same place!

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Dan's place is a private, eclectic little hideaway at the end of a long driveway. It sits on a beautiful piece of property with an amazing view and is bustling with birds, including toucans (which we saw on two occasions during our stay). For the two of us, it was a perfect base from which to explore many other attractions in the area. Great restaurants were moments away and grocery shopping was relatively easy. It is a charming little place that has all your basic needs covered.
Dan was great to work with before and during our holiday, and had plenty of information to share about the area. We had a fabulous time!

Beautiful Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We loved Daniel's place in Arenal! His place was our first introduction to Costa Rica and
we were just delighted with everything. The place was clean and cozy and the property
itself was gorgeous. Daniel himself was incredibly helpful - we were happy with every recommendation he gave us. Thank you so much for sharing your little paradise with us!

Hidden Gem of Arenal

  • 5 of 5
This place is absolutely perfect. My boyfriend and I stayed for a week in Nov/Dec and never wanted to leave. The house is at the very top of the driveway (a paved one mind you), with a view that is to die for (an in a great location, accessible to everything from major cities to beaches in less than a couple of hours). Clean and well kept, this is the perfect spot to get away from it all. You'll listen to singing birds in the morning, a gentle rain on the roof at night, and the breeze blowing through countless flowers (which are everywhere). The tranquility is tough to describe, so you'll have to experience it for yourself! :-)

Like all of the others mentioned, the pictures barely touch on the true beauty of this place. The owner is a dream to get in contact with and has some outstanding recommendations for local spots and attractions. We even ran into the caretake, who graciously accompanied us though some adventures for the remainder of the day. Everyone is remarkably friendly and "Pura Vida" truly sums up their view of life.

Yes, there is no TV or Wifi, which we personally LOVED, though if you're trapped responding to work emails like I was occasionally, the restaurant down the hill offers free Wifi (just don't forget to eat there- the food is fab!). It was nice having a washer and dryer as well- which came in very handy when we were swimming, hiking and dining all in one day.

If you're on the fence about renting here, don't be. Rest assured it will be your best decision yet. We can't wait to return, though I'm sure we will need to book far in advance to secure this hidden gem again. Thanks so much for everything!
