Beautiful home in a perfect setting with restaurants and convenient store a short walk away. Owners are quick to respond.
My husband and I really enjoyed staying at this property. The view is picture perfect and the sunsets were unforgettable. The lightning bugs/fireflies at night were magical! Who knew Costa Rica sparkled!? The house had everything we needed. It was a great homebase for exploring the La Fortuna Arenal area. I would highly recommend staying here.
Wonderful view on Lake Arenal and nature from living room and kitchen and terrace
Beautiful little house (actually nicer than in the pictures) with two bedrooms, great bathroom and kitchen in the middle of nature with great views. „Union“ is a tiny village consisting of a handful of nice restaurants (all with beautiful lake view!) and sodas and thats it. Nuevo Arenal and La Fortuna are within easy driving distance: less than half an hour away. If you want absolute privacy and love nature: this is it!
Our only complaint is that the internet did not work the three lovely days we spent there.
Our Costa Rica Adventure
The view was amazing. We saw toucans, hummingbirds, and giant toads everyday. We had one sunset that was not all clouds and it was spectacular! We loved the coffee souvenirs shop the owner lady was so helpful in planning part of our adventure. We had dinner at Soda Maquengue, and the food was great. The welcome package was a great resource. The screen need repair on sliding door to keep the bugs out.
Incredible location, beautiful house
This house and location are just as beautiful as described. Pictures really can't do it justice. We loved waking up every morning to all the birds, and the sun on the lake. William, the host, and Fulvio, the caretaker, were very helpful both before and during our stay.
I would recommend renting a car, if you are planning on participating in any of the activities around La Fortuna. Tour companies will pick you up at La Mansion next door, but the extra charge is pretty steep. For locations we did not want to drive to, it worked well for us to drive into La Fortuna, park in the tour company lots, and pick up the tours there.
We would have liked a small table, to eat, play cards or whatever. Other than that, the house had everything we needed.
We would recommend this house to our friends, and will definitely stay here again if we return to this area of Costa Rica. Spending time in this incredible place was one of the best parts of our Costa Rica vacation.
there couldn't be a better location - stunning views and peaceful!
We can't wait to go back!
