The view, the birds...OMG Amazing
One could spend there whole lives on this porch and want for nothing but bread and water! We saw parakeets, toucans, and colorful birds of every description! We were little sad that the lakeshore where we were was too low to take the kayaks out. Another possible drawback is the distance form Fortuna if you want to do touristy stuff there, however, there is plenty of interesting stuff around Nuevo Arenal where this house is. Good eats etc. and stuff to do too.
The house is incredibly nice. I'd go back n a second
We are in love.
This was the most wonderful accommodation — we most enjoyed the outside deck for eating and relaxing. The view and sounds are extraordinary. The beds were great, the kitchen had what we needed and we felt like we were home. This place was truly special.
Beautiful home, outdoor space is really nice. Inside very comfortable.
We left a home in the SanFrancisco area early because the home was so uncomfortable. After several days we decided we can’t stay here for an entire week. We drove to the new destination and knew immediately we had made a good decision, even though the other place was already paid for a week. The home is beautiful, very comfortable, and Pedro, the caretaker goes above and beyond. We saw toucans daily, heard the monkeys, and loved the view. Highly recommend! The only negative was we didn’t stay here the entire week. We are already considering next summer renting for a month and we just left.
home away home.
it was really a home away home. everything was there . beautiful garden and beautiful view.
we would come again.
LOVED this property and the house. Pedro the housekeeper was awesome and super friendly. So many areas to explore. Found a bunch of dart frogs down by the lake. Would stay again.
Clean, comfortable home with beautiful views!
Our stay at Casa Malecu was wonderful! A great jumping point to enjoy many activities including the town of La Fortuna, Tabacon Hot Springs and Rio Celeste. We found the drive to Rincon de la Vieja a little long but doable. We decided Monte Verde was farther than we wanted to travel from this location. The house was clean, comfortable, spacious and well stocked with everything you would expect for a week long stay. The only issue we had was that the grill was out of propane when we arrived which foiled our dinner plans for a night. The grounds keeper, who is just a few houses away, was quick to remedy the situation. For first time travelers to the area, keep in mind that it is extremely windy here (so much so that there is a wind farm about 5 miles away, mostly in the afternoon and evenings and when the rain comes it comes heavy! The floating dock is about .25 miles from the house so be prepared for a walk to get there. We were hoping to be able to use the kayaks on the lake during our stay but due to the high winds most of the time and the fact that we would need to pull them uphill on the return trip (Kayak carts are provided), we decided against it. The home itself is beautiful with plants and flowers, stunning views from the deck, master bedroom and shower, wildlife all around to include birds, squirrels, lizards and monkeys. It was a wonderful stay! Thank you for sharing this home!
