Why Nita Kemsley chose La Fortuna
Buying this property was for us...Love at First Sight. Quiet, Rural, Calm, Private, Tranquil and with Views to die for! We saw great possibilities for our future retirement in paradise.
What makes this Guest House unique
The property is very private and tranquil. Close to everything we need.. but away from it all as well. The cool mountain breezes are a real blessing when the summer months are here. We love waking up to the birds and monkey's everyday.

Beautiful cozy home big enough for our family of 5. Far enough away to relax yet still close enough to all the amenities. Our stay was too short!
Best secluded place in Arenal/La Fortuna
Absolutely incredible place.
Driving to it was OMG where have we booked but once you get there it is amazing.
The house has so much character and charm and the surrounding grounds and views are unbeaten.
Highly recommend if you are staying in the area.
I do suggest at least a high clearance vehicle to get to this location. 4x4 is not necessary but a regular car could be challenging if it is raining.
We will go back!!!
Tranquil, home away from home!
Our families stay was amazing. The grounds were beautiful. The rainforest is your backyard. The kids loved going down the trail to the creek/river. There are really good views of Arenal Lake and Volcano. Nita was extremely helpful with suggestions on dining and other local activities.
The property is it’s own oasis. It’s away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to all that you need. I would definitely stay again.
Really enjoyed our stay and will return again next year!
Charming house, very helpful owner, great hospitality
The house and grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The location is great. We also loved that there were lots of dvds and board games available. Nita was very helpful with lots of information /advise about good places to eat, buy groceries, activities in the area. She helped us book our sky adventure ahead of time. Would definitely recommend.
Thank you so much for your kind review I am so glad you enjoyed your stay at Encantada it was a pleasure to meet you and your family.
Encantada Guest House was awesome, clean quiet and comfortable. Great views, Amazing hosts and the family pets are so sweet. A 4x4 is strongly recommended for road clearance, but the road is totally passable. We'll be back!
Thanks so much for your comments. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
