LAKE VIEW PROPERTY
Betty & Bob Parsonson
About Betty & Bob Parsonson
Our first trip to Costa Rica was in 1999. We enjoyed the country so much we kept returning every year. The idea of actually living here evolved over many of our return visits. We spent a lot time exploring different areas of Costa Rica, but once we discovered Lake Arenal, we knew this was where we wanted to be.
Betty & Bob Parsonson purchased this House in 2014
Why Betty & Bob Parsonson chose Nuevo Arenal
We fell in love with this property because of the view and the location. We are minutes to town and we have incredible neighbors.
What makes this House unique
Our favorite time of day is around 5:00 pm. Sitting outside and enjoying the view, all of the different birds and watching the sun set. We never tire of it, it's magnificent.

Loved our three night stay at Lake Vista cottage! Beautiful accommodations,clean, comfortable, with everything you could possible need. Kitchen is well stocked with all the appliances and cookware. All the little details were looked after, Bob and Betty are lovely hosts, welcoming and warm with lots of great info and tips for the area. Betty always responded to emails very quickly . After a long day of travel Betty took care of making us a dinner reservation ...best pizza ever! Easy drive into La Fortuna to do day trips. Hope to be back one day! Thanks for a great stay!
Beautiful place to stay
Lovely, roomy place with a warm and helpful hostess, Betty. Very clean accommodations for a comfortable night in the area. Woke up to a cacophony of happy birds, including a large group of toucans we enjoyed. Loved the Italian dinner recommendation.
A great choice
A beautifully handcrafted small home. Private with a fantastic view and very accommodating host and hostess
Beautiful Costa Rican cottage!
We absolutely loved staying at the Lake Vista Cottage with Bob and Betty! Beautiful home, very comfortable and relaxing. Betty and Bob have provided everything you could desire inside this home. It is quiet, private and clean! They were full of insight, tips and information about the area and local restaurants. It is the perfect location for many day trips to La Fortuna, Rio Celeste and the surrounding National parks. We will be returning next year. Safe, clean and quiet. A couples delight. Thank you!
It was an absolute pleasure having you two stay with us. Your energy and joy is contagious, true Pura Vida.

Cozy comfort and craftsmanship in Nuevo Arenal
This is a wonderfully handcrafted property. Everything about it is first class. There is every amenity that you could need and then some! Bob and Betty are wonderful host. They made it feel like you were staying with friends. They provided so much information on the area, great restaurant suggestions and daily activities. The only thing missing was our ability to stay longer! Would go back in a heartbeat! Pura Vida! Randy and Sherry
Wonderful place in Arenal Costa Rica.
This is a fantastic property. Betty and Bob have spared no expense in making this property beautiful and extremely comfortable. Breath taking views of the hillside and lake. You can seat outside enjoying the view and the plethora of birds around you. The only problem with this property is you won’t want to leave.
We are central for Rio Celeste and La Fortuna. Some guests have also done a day trip to Monteverde as well as as the Cano Negro Wildlife Preserve.
According to WAZE (great free app): driving time is dictated by the actual road conditions which have been improving, but there are still a lot of unpaved roads here in Costa Rica.
Rio Celeste is 20.8 km from us, but driving time due to road conditions is 56 minutes.
Tabacon is 19 kms, and takes about 38 minutes.
Arenal Volcano - 20.8 km, driving time 50 minutes
Cano Negro - 42.7 km, driving time is 2.01 hours.
Monteverde - 116 km with a 2.22 hour drive.
