This has one of the best views of Lake Arenal. The house sits on a side of a mountain that runs into the lake, approximately half way up. Monkeys, toucans, parrots, and so many birds are always around. There is a patio with a fabulous view of Lake Arenal that has a gas Bar-B-Que grill, love seat. The living and dining area faces the lake with a view that is really spectacular.
The location is near the town of Rio Piedras,between Nuevo Arenal and Tilaran, about 26 miles to Tobacon Hot Springs, The Hanging Bridges, the new Canopy Tram, and the Arenal Volcano, boat trips to Monteverde and more. This is important when comparing rentals, as some are on the south side of the lake, and Tronadora, which doubles the distance to these must-see locations. Its central location also makes the beaches of the Pacific Ocean a two hour drive, but the climate is cool and lush.
The lake is very clean and you can swim, fish, or boat there, and there is a nice short excursion, to Lake Cote (about five miles away). There is a nice canopy tour here, and the famous bottomless lake.
