Why Michael and Kelly Karon chose Venado
2 Words---Resident Toucan! After traveling all of Costa Rica in search of our dream property, we knew in an instant this was our paradise. It was a combination of cooler weather, lush rainforest, lake and volcano views and above all privacy, peace and security. Casa Karon is pure Costa Rica, our little piece of heaven.

This house is everything and more if you’re planning on staying in Tamarindo! The house was beautiful and you’ll have your very own private view of the amazing sunsets. Surfing is right at your backdoor as well. I can’t say enough about this house and how efficient roger was with the communication and travel process. I can’t say enough about the location. My husband and I will definitely be back!
Incredible deck views!
The pictures of the house are pretty accurate, the only thing that was a surprise was that it was basically attached to the owners home which butts up against the pool. We had been looking for privacy but were pleasantly surprised that Michael the host was great company and very informative. We ended up being glad he was so close. The pool is perfect, but be aware that you will have to ask Michael to set up the hot tub, waterfall, slide which we had assumed we’d be able to use whenever. The road to the house is easy enough with 2wd but any of the “shortcuts” are better with 4wd. If you want to walk nature trails, you’ll have to head to one of the parks, there aren’t any trails in the development where the house is. Great sunsets over the lake, loved the birds in the trees every morning! And again, the host is a very fascinating and accommodating guy.
Peaceful property with an incredible view
We stayed at this property for 3 nights with our 4 children. The property is clean, relaxed and very comfortable. The view is gorgeous. Our kids loved the pool with waterslide and the wood-fired hot tub. The bedrooms were comfortable. The stone tiled shower is awesome - a nice upgrade from other stops on our trip. The kitchen had all the essentials plus great coffee. Most days we cooked breakfast and dinner at home, and then enjoyed lunch out on an adventure. The host Michael had great suggestions of how to make the most of our time in the Nuevo Arenal / La Fortuna region.
Definitely suggest having a car with 4 wheel drive. Essential for this part of the country!
This property was simply amazing! The view was breathtaking! We can't say enough about Michael and Kelly for their responsiveness and hospitality! Would stay here again in a heartbeat!
A perfect piece of paradise
Our family recently spent 3 nights at Casa Karon and it was one of the most memorable parts of our vacation. Michael is a wonderful host, and is easily accessible for any questions you may have.
The property is just far enough from town to feel totally secluded, yet able to access Arenal for all your needs. Perfect distance for day trips to the Arenal Volcano, and La Fortuna.
Our vacation consisted of both VRBO and resort stays, and we all agreed that the time we spent here was the best part. I look forward to spending more time here in future travel.
Beautiful and relaxing
We enjoyed our stay at your home very much. The view and sunsets are breathtaking. Very relaxing and had everything we needed. Next time we come to CR this will definitely be where would want to be. Thank you for your hospitality!
