We are a professional couple from the San Francisco Bay Area who traveled to Costa Rica in 2008 and fell in love with Lake Arenal. We finally completed our dream home on the lake in the Summer of 2017 and are now opening our doors to share what we have created with those who come to Lake Arenal to relax, getaway and explore this beautiful country. We welcome you with open arms- Bienvenidos a Casa Artistica!
Owner purchased this House in 2017
Why Owner chose Nuevo Arenal
Sitting on our deck looking over the lake is like being on tropical safari. It's a serene, magical place where you can rendezvous with nature. We are 40 minutes from La Fortuna, near zip lining, kayaking, horseback riding, hot springs and Volcano Arenal. We're also 10 minutes from the acclaimed Gingerbread Restaurant and the quaint town of Nuevo Arenal. The house has a spacious, open floor plan and wraparound deck with spectacular views. The breeze off the lake provides comfort year round.
What makes this House unique
You can bird watch easily from our deck--or stroll the property and enjoy the abundant fruit of our banana, papaya and lime trees (more fruit trees coming!) We are not directly in town, which is a definite plus as you will experience the raw beauty of the lake and surrounding areas. However, we are only about 1/8 th of a mile off the main road around the lake which makes travel in and out quite easy. We searched long and hard to find the ideal spot for our getaway and we are quite certain that we found it!

Lovely stay in Nuevo Arenal
Beautiful two-bedroom, one bathroom home on a gorgeous property overlooking Lake Arenal. The house has a great wrap-around porch with garden, lake, and mountain views - perfect for watching the sun set and for peaceful reflection. The kitchen is well-stocked and and living area is large and comfortable for a group of 5 - 6. The host gave us excellent recommendations for places to eat in Nuevo Arenal. Las Delicias was a family favorite. We enjoyed our stay in the area. The property is located 45 - 60 minutes away from La Fortuna so plan accordingly for excursions.
We are glad you and your family enjoyed staying at our cottage. You are welcome back any time.

We enjoyed our three night stay at Casa Artistica while visiting Nuevo Arenal and La Fortuna. The house is situated on a lovely piece of land that overlooks Lake Arenal. We especially enjoyed Christmas Eve dinner at Gingerbread and our full day tour that included hanging bridges, waterfalls, the Arenal volcano, sloth sightings, and hot springs.
Pleasant family to have as our guest. You are welcome back anytime.
Beautiful home and views
We stayed at casa artistica 5 nights while visiting the Arenal and Lafortuna area. The house is beautiful and has all the amenities one needs for a restful stay. We were traveling with 2 teenagers, who spent much of their time enjoying the wild life while at the house, which was great to see. The house is perfectly located to visit the area, a short drive to Nuevo Arenal where you find all amenities and restaurants and under an hour to Lafortuna where we had adventure tours scheduled. The manager Steve was readily available and very helpful.
We would not hesitate to stay here again. Really enjoyed our stay!
Superbly equipped cottage in a splendid location.
Cottage is around 7km from Nuevo arenal heading towards la fortuna. The access road to the cottage is steep and somewhat rough a 4x4 is recommended although a car with high clearance will make it. The house has everything you could possibly need and extra. Steve the property manager was very welcoming and advised us on some local knowledge. For example where to swim in the lake. Although you can't see volcan arenal from the house the view across the lake is stunning. In summary, a lovely house in an excellent location definitely recommended. Some nice artwork from the owners also on the walls. Thanks.
Thanks so much for coming to stay at our home. We are so glad that you had a nice visit and enjoyed the house and surroundings. We are so lucky to have this lovely spot and are glad we could share it with you. We welcome you back any time! Nader and Maria
We had a wonderful stay at this property, lovely view of the lake and it really is in a good location for adventuring out to Arenal Volcano, Cano Negro , and also Tenorio volcano the first being the nearest to the house. We had dinner one night at the Gingerbread restaurant not to be missed!
The house has everything you need, the covered porch is a plus when the rain blows through.
If you are coming to the Lake Arenal area I would indefinably recommend this house
We are so glad that you had a good time and enjoyed the house. We enjoy the deck in all weather for bird watching, reading and quiet contemplation. We hope you are able to come back again!
