This property is located with easy access to Rio Celeste, Arenal Volcano, Monteverde Cloud Forest and so much more! We woke up each morning to Howler Monkeys, Toucans, fragrant flowers and stunning views of Arenal Volcano and Lake Arenal. The community pool was pristine and so close to the house. We enjoyed a Catamaran Cruise on the lake, dinner at El Corral, Equus BBQ, Casa Italia, Cafe Macadamia, Moya’s, Lake Arenal Brewery, and a few meals in our kitchen. Didn’t have time to use the large grill on the terrace this time. We rented a 4WD with WiFi for our excursions and enjoyed the adventure of driving the countryside and the Pura Vida of the farms and towns in between. Do your homework and you will be prepared to experience Costa Rica as the adventure it is regardless of weather, road conditions and wildlife sightings where you least expect them-like the mountain lion that crossed in front of us on a dark rainy evening on a very curvy road-one of the highlights of this trip.
Thanks to Amanda and Mike for all the great communication and waiting up for us when our plane arrived late-a seamless check in just in time to relax over the coldest beer and delicious dinner at El Corral where the staff sat us just before closing and insisted we take our time to enjoy our meal. I stayed at another house in Turtle Cove before and it was nice, but with its views, A/C and exquisite design Casa 17 is superior.
Wonderful place to stay with a beautiful location, all the amenities needed. Incredible..
Great time at Nuevo Arenal
The property was excellent. The location was great, only 5 minutes to Nuevo Arenal and 25 minutes to Tilaran with a good amount of great food options. The house was very clean and well equipped with all the appliances we needed. It was very comfortable. Mike the property manager was very resourceful and is nice a person. We will definitely stay here when returning to the Nuevo Arenal - La Fortuna Area!!
cute and cozy!
The house was beautiful with great views just as described. Property manager provided great instructions that made it easy to find. Check in was smooth and easy. Guards were nice and helpful. Beds were not very comfortable though and there was a lot of dust and cobwebs throughout the house but overall would highly recommend. Our favorite house we stayed in Costa Rica and we stayed at three.
We take great pride in providing a first rate rental experience. The staff are very responsive and sensitive to the needs of our clients. Mike, the cordial property manager will address any concerns promptly and go to great lengths to assure your satisfaction. His wife, Marisol is a meticulous house cleaner and always assures that the house is in pristine condition for arriving clients.
The house is well appointed and has garnered enthusiastic reviews over the years. We really appreciate it when clients apprise us personally of any deficiencies or need for improvement, by contacting either Mike or Amanda, so that we may continue the tradition of having happy campers in the years ahead.
Great house in the Nuevo Arenal area
Some of the best bird watching in CR right off the deck! The house is set up very nicely with The master, ensuite, kitchen, 1/2 bath, living and dining all on the main floor. Excellent privacy for guests with 2 bedrooms and bath on the lower floor. The trees off the deck on the right make this house exceptional. I think every bird in the valley stops there at some point during the day. Every day we saw toucans, aracaris, parrots, chachalacas, orependolas, honeycreepers, tanagers, guans, etc. The howlers and pizotes added to the fun.
The property manager Mike was great to deal with. Walking distance to Aguacate which has a really nice restaurant EL Corral, and a surprisingly well stocked little store. You do need a car, but if you’re in that area, you are going to want to drive and explore the mountains, lake, volcanos and waterfalls.
Highly recommended for the Lake Arenal area.
This area truly is a Shangri La for bird lovers. Prolific plantings of flowers , shrubs and trees attract myriad species of birds and wildlife to the property. It is a mecca for nature enthusiasts.
The front porch affords a riveting panoramic view of azure blue waters, mountains and vibrant jungle canopy. The slumbering Arenal volcano looms large in the background and provides a majestic backdrop to this primordial setting. The mesmerizing effect is sure to captivate and leave you in awe.
Just another day in paradise !
Can't wait to return!
We spent a month in this beautiful house and enjoyed every aspect of our stay.
Each morning we looked forward to coffee on the deck, surrounded by those gorgeous gardens, overlooking the Lake. We spent hours watching the birds and even had a toucan visit only feet away on the railing.
The house has a well equipped kitchen and is thoughtfully furnished with comfortable sofas and great beds. The master bedroom has lots of storage and a spacious ensuite bathroom.
The property staff takes great pride in keeping this gated community safe and well groomed. The pool, a short walk away, was always immaculate.
During our stay, our friendly house manager Mike stopped by often to check on us. He was quick to respond to any requests, to share local information and make us feel at home.
We can’t wait to return!
Thanks, David . So glad you enjoyed your stay.
The Lake Arenal area is a pretty magical place, with stunning views and a great diversity of birds and wildlife to enjoy.
There are so many intriguing destinations within easy reach, that after years of exploring, I feel that I have barely scratched the surface.
Another welcoming feature is the host of friendly and very accommodating locals that go to great lengths to make you feel at home.
Lake Arenal and Costa Rica in general, is a fascinating destination, with endless natural attractions and a charming magnetism that will keep you returning time and again.
Centrally located, 10 minute drive to Nuevo Arenal for groceries, restaurant, etc. Multitude of nature/adventure tours less than 1 hr. away.
