What a wonderful house!
The house is fantastik! Beautiful wooden furniture, wide kitchen fully equiped, very confortable beds. And the view!!!! Wow! We appreciate so mutch the pool and also the books in the living room about the birds and animals from Costa Rica. Everything was perfect from this house Unfortunately, we didn’t have good weather. It was very, very windy. But I think it is a characteristic
Both the house and setting totally exceeded our expectations,
It is difficult, in a few photos to capture a scene like the lake and volcano of arenal. We were really impressed with both the environment and the house.
The latter was a really sophisticated and well equipped accomodation, right down to the Royal Doulton China.!! Coryn, the manager was instantly available, on our arrival and at any time by WhatsApp.
We appreciated the comfortable beds with quality sheets, the washing and drying machines,the kitchen to die for and the excellent furnishings.
You do need leave time to travel as the roads are either slow and windy and or unpaved. La Fortuna is 1 1/2 hours drive.
We had high winds for our weeks stay and this is a feature of the area. It does have the advantage of providing a comfortable temperature day and
Modern, Beautiful & Clean!!
We stayed in Dec/Jan 2019 with our boys all under 13 years old. Beautiful views, having laundry onsite was awesome, hot hot water for showers and the appliances were great. Lots of kitchen supplies, extra towels and blankets. It was windy for swimming and the hammock but we were able to do it a few days. Loved the locals in Rio Piedras! My kids played soccer at the futsol soccer field while my husband and I had an Imperial and an empanada. Pefecto!! Would recommend this place for families or 2 couples. Coryn was great - quick replies and great recommendations.
Hands down the BEST kitchen ever in a rental!!! You need a rental car here if you want to do anything other than relax. Check the weather as the wind blows here during season. We had plenty of Bird watching on the porch in the wonderful rockers. The neighbors are nice and friendly. I would definitely recommend staying here if you want to get away and disconnect.
Beautiful house with a beautiful view!
We had a fantastic stay! The kitchen was well equipped w/ anything you would need for cooking. Grill was out of gas but we contacted the property manager and had a new tank within a couple hours. Property manager was quick with communication through the WhatsApp and was also very helpful w/ recommendations on activities and places to eat.
Overall I highly recommend staying here if you're in the Arenal area.

We could not have asked for anything better with this house and the service we received!
Everything we needed was right there at the house. We made a quick stop at a grocery store on our way there but it was to pick up snacks and breakfast items. The kitchen was fully equipped with a stove/oven/microwave/dishwasher and refrigerator with ice and water dispenser. The dining area gave us a nice view as did the living room. Both bedrooms had a bath with full size shower. The living room had a large couch, dish TV and even wireless we could use. A washer and dryer in the garage allowed us to pack less clothes too! As we were sitting outside enjoying the view, we even saw a toucan sitting in the tree nearby.
We never needed bug spray as the breeze kept away all the bugs.
It was helpful to have brought metal water bottles; we filled these each time we left the house for our day trips
Lots to do if you turn left off the road to the house and drive towards La Fortuna or turn right and heads towards Tileran.
Breakfast at LaMacha is a must. We ate there twice for $8 each. I wanted to go back for lunch but we just were not able to fit it in. Equus Restaurant was also great and we made it there 3 times; ribs, chicken and tilapia were all wonderful. Coryn told us about a fabulous place, Brisa Del Lago- when you turn right off the road- again the meal was fabulous and the staff so nice and helpful. We didn't make it to the Macadamia House for lunch and were a bit disappointed that there were numerous tourist buses there each time we drove by it. We did go to the Lake Arsenal Brewery and enjoyed the flights of their beers but cancelled our order for nachos after waiting an hour when we inquired and they had not started them yet. Finally for food you must go to the Gingerbread House. It is out of this world and a lot of fun talking with the chef/owner Eyal
Went visited Eco termales Hot Springs in La Fortuna and was so quiet there. It advertises
only 100 people are allowed there at a given time and they were true to their advertisement!
It was a great trip with lots of adventures! The house was so lovely with a view, pool and hammocks we spent the last two days right there enjoying the quiet time.
Thank you Coryn for being so accommodating and responsive to us with our questions during our stay. Everyone we met was so very nice that it made our trip particularly memorable!
A trip worth repeating indeed!
Thank YOU!! We absolutely loved having you stay at Casa West and take advantage of all that this area has to offer. I don't think you missed any of the recommended places...FANTASTICO! Cafe & Macadamia can get quite full from Tourist buses this time of year. But now you have some places to still visit and revisit should you decide to make another trip our way.
So happy to have been a great part of your Costa Rican adventure!!
Rio Piedras is a small pueblo of lake arenal where daily life surrounds farming and community. There are a few local eateries and corner grocer situated alongside the rocky river that this town takes it's name from. Favorites are La Macha(best tipical food), Equus BBQ(best barbeque), and Cafe & Macadamia that is a short hike from the house and has excellent homemade bakery goods and lunch specials.
Nearby you'll enjoy the lake via wind or kite surfing, fishing, swimming, and kayaking with local guides. Horseback rides through the lush terrain with beautiful vistas can also be arranged. One of the benefits of Rio Piedras is location..about equidistant from the cloud forests of Monteverde, the sandy beaches of Guanacaste, and Volcan Arenal with it's hot springs and waterfalls nearby. It's a perfect out of the way location to enjoy the quiet meditative lake scenery, but easy to reach any of the tourist destinations that suit your fancy.
