IMPORTANT NOTE... We do not recommend small compact or economy cars while exploring the Arenal area. Some of the roads have potholes in spots. The road to our property is safe and passable, just some spots are bumpy. Vehicles should have some clearance. 4X4 not really necessary - just some clearance.
Gated and lots of room to roam. Meticulously maintained 65+ acre retreat with flowers and wildlife too numerous to mention. Over 3 miles of private hiking trails, many leading to fantastic vistas of the surrounding mountains, volcano and lake.
The main house is a compact 2,500 square foot open floor plan design with 5 bedrooms (1 queen, 1 full and 6 twin) and 2 bathrooms and sleeps 10. Each bedroom has great views. Full kitchen inside with local hand made cabinetry and a local hand made eat-in dining table that seats up to 10.The veranda on the back of the house is huge with great views of the lake and has a working wood stove that can serve as an outdoor kitchen. All linens, towels and kitchen utensils onsite. Be sure to check out our Video of the house and furnishings.
We have a 1 acre private natural swimming pond with platforms and swimming ladders for ease of use. Make sure you check out our photos.
We have many banana, pineapple, orange, mandarin, grapefruit, lemon, lime, breadfruit trees and more. You are welcome to enjoy all that the property has to offer.
We have an experienced property manager (English speaking) and two gardeners that keep the property meticulously maintained. Upon arrival, please feel free to ask what fresh fruit is available so our gardeners can deliver some to your door or pick it for yourself.
We are able to assist with planning and reserving many exotic adventures such as boating, biking, zip-lining, horseback riding, nature hiking, white-water rafting, hot springs, cave exploring, kayaking, canoeing and more... Cost for each tour is different and information is made available after confirmation of booking.
We are only 2.5km (1.5 miles) outside the Town of Nuevo Arenal. Close to shopping, tours and dining. Our location makes a perfect base for those wanting to explore all Costa Rica has to offer or just relax and enjoy our property and the many species of flora, fauna and wildlife.

Please note: If you are planning to rent a vehicle, make sure it has high clearance. 4X4 is not really necessary but something with high clearance is... something like a mini-SUV or larger. We strongly recommend something larger than a compact or economy car. Although the roads are safe, they can be bumpy especially after rainy season and the road to our property is not paved.
