About DELOYD HUENINK
Susan and John are retired and split their time between Costa Rica and St Petersburg, FL. We have planted every plant you see on the property and love to garden. John is a photographer and sells his work on line, on two stock photo sources (one of his volcano sunrise photos has sold over 700 times) and he is looking for a wildlife gallery in the states to handle his work as well. We have 5 children between us and 6 grandchildren. the oldest of which enters college in the fall of 2018. We have started a wild orchid garden which was populated from several old trees that blew down during a fierce storm in 2017.
DELOYD HUENINK purchased this Studio in 2017
Why DELOYD HUENINK chose La Fortuna
This is a special place. we, and many who have visited have found it to possess spiritual qualities, and we can sit for hours watching the changes in the jungle lighting and cloud patterns right from the terrace. Birds galore. Fresh air. Fresh food. Wonderful restaurants nearby.

Hi Silvana. Thank you again for staying with us and sharing your experience with others. We built Laughing Falcon for people who want to experience Costa Rica at a reasonable cost while being in a rural setting, living on the edge of the wild jungle, having great Volcano views and enjoying several private trails including our tropical gardens and a walk to our private waterfall. Thank you again for staying with us...Susan and John
Amazing trip with great views
This is a little slice of heaven. Very well situated from the hustle and bustle of our normal city life the quaint little lodge has everything. You get breakfast every morning and get to see the volcano from where you eat. The road getting there is a little rocky and rough but it’s worth the drive up...you won’t regret it! Waterfalls located behind the home lead you to your very own private rainforest. Simply amazing, thank you John and Susan we had a great time.
Glad you had a great time here, and so pleased you went to our private waterfall in the jungle. I often think about that little waterfall and realize it is in the middle of about 200,000 acres of National Park, About 6 years ago, our neighbor made a path from his home to the waterfall and just 2 years ago we made a second trail from our property to a new trail thru the rain forest, then to the waterfall. Before these trails is it doubtful that anyone had ever been there before, as they would have had to hike for miles of jungle to arrive. You were two of only a few to ever be on that spot. Thanks for spending part of your vacation with us and so glad you seem to love our place as much as we do.
A slice of paradise ... a true jungle stay.
Visitors to Laughing Falcon are well rewarded for the challenging drive up to it. Upon arrival there are gorgeous gardens full of birds and a balcony giving onto a true jungle view with the Arenal volcano in the background ... seemingly almost in one's own garden. The apartment is very well equipped ... everything from good knives to a comfy bed. We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay here in this spacious studio. All John and Susan's instructions are very helpful and the directions to the studio are spot on!
We absolutely loved our stay in El Castillo! It's very conveniently located near La Fortuna and many good choices to eat and shop, but also secluded and private. The property is indescribably beautiful and unspoiled, and the hike to the private waterfall was like nothing we've ever done before. We saw toucans right off the porch 2 out of 3 mornings! A delicious breakfast was delivered to us on our porch daily by the lovely Lilliam.
John and Susan have many special touches available like brochures to nearby attractions, common spices, even enough coffee to brew on your first morning in case you forgot to pick some up! The emails they send ahead of time give detailed directions to not only the rental, but many great places to eat, tour, or visit as well, and helpful hints for getting around.
A fantastic choice at a bargain price, you will not be disappointed!!
