The property is a natural rain forest paradise that sits on a lush 8 acrs., that over looks the lake of Arenal. We made a dam at the top of the property were the water flows on its own to all parts of the farm. With all that water we planted banana trees, fruit trees, and fenced in the pastures for the cows. We made fish ponds, that are now filled with enough fish to feed many people. Every day is something new here at the farm Stay!

Gated and Private. Meticulously maintained 65+ acre private retreat with flowers and wildlife too numerous to mention. Over 3 miles of private hiking trails, many leading to fantastic vistas of the surrounding mountains, volcano and lake. The house is a compact 2,500 square foot open floor plan design with 5 bedrooms (1 queen, 1 full, and 4 twin and 1 bunk bed) and 2 bathrooms and sleeps 10. Each bedroom has great views. Full kitchen inside with local hand made cabinetry and a local hand made eat-in dining table that seats up to 10.The veranda on the back of the house is huge with great views of the lake and has a working wood stove that can serve as an outdoor kitchen. All linens, towels and kitchen utensils onsite.

Contact us for details about our cottage for up to 4 persons. We have a 1 acre private natural swimming pond with platforms and swimming ladders for ease of use. Make sure you check out our photos. We have many banana, pineapple, orange, mandarin, grapefruit, lemon, lime, breadfruit trees and more. You are welcome to enjoy all that the property has to offer. We have a relationship with professional tour providers for those wanting to explore the area's many exotic adventures like Zip-Lining, Fishing, White-Water Rafting, Kayaking, Mountain biking, ATV Adventure, Waterfall Hikes, Cave Exploring, Hanging Bridge Tour, Volcanic Hot Springs and more.

Please note: If you are planning to rent a vehicle, make sure it has high clearance. 4X4 is not really necessary but something with high clearance is... something like a mini-SUV or larger.

The house has 160 m² (1.720 ft²) interior floor space, and 235 m² (2.530 ft²) under roof with a rap-around tiled patio towards the spectacular lake side. It was elaborately designed for open-concept living, with living room and kitchen being perfectly integrated. There is a master bedroom with generously-sized, fully tiled en-suite with a huge solar-powered tub. This home has exquisite lake views across the entire living area with a large guest room featuring double door walk outs to the back patio and tropical garden area. The house is turnkey ready with tropical hand-carvings in its doors and beds, with all bamboo furniture. It features a fireplace for the times when the rainforest lives up to its name. Most days the temperatures of our balmy tropical mini climate is between 21 to 30 degrees Celcius (70-86F), a big departure from more crowded tropical areas in Costa Rica with its extreme heat. Located at an altitude of 620 meters above sea level, the weather remains cool and fresh all year long. This house was designed together with a guest house. Parties over 4 will get the usage of the fully-equipped, oven-living-style guest house, which is listed as Studio Apartmt. with perfect lake view—guest house, Property No: P681602 [TripAdvisor does not allow us to include the URL address.] In the evening, you might try one of several well-recommended restaurants nearby, or enjoy a romantic dinner at home in the seclusion of your own kitchen, as you watch the sun setting over the lake.

                A wonderful vacation cabin in the jungles near Lake Arenal, Costa Rica. Perfect for relaxing, bird watching, internet working, writing, or spending time with a loved one. The cabin is off the beaten path, yet just 2 kilometers from shopping, restaurants, bars and the lake side park. The road is a bit rough so there are few cars and almost no noise on the property. You will hear birds, monkeys, chickens and wind chimes. You may roam freely the acres of plants, bananas, papayas, oranges, lemons, yucca, flowers and regenerating forests which are everywhere. The property is surrounded by very large tracks of both pasture and open space for trekking. The house has DSL wireless internet, a large bathroom with huge picture windows looking out upon the gardens, a large sunken tub with hot water shower, full kitchen which opens on the living room sleeping area. Washing machine. This is a perfect retreat for someone working on their computer who wishes to be alone. Our guests also use this as a base to explore Arenal Volcano, Tenorio, Monteverde and other touristic destinations. No kids or pets without prior approval. We love both so do ask.

We are near Lake Arenal, Costa Rica and one hour drive to La Fortuna. The town is called Nuevo Arenal not to be confused with la Fortuna. Nuevo Arenal is a small town with everything you need due to its expat community. We have super markets, bars, restaurants, banks, health clinic, parks, and other shops.

Other day trips will take you to magical waterfalls or the crystal-clear blue water of Rio Celeste. As a bonus, our guests may feel free to load up our 2 kayaks and go down to the boat launch in town, where they can explore Lake Arenal and look for artifacts along the shorelines. The entire area around Lake Arenal is a cyclist’s heaven, with excellent roads and trails to navigate. It is a perfect place to connect with nature. Our guests will enjoy the marvels of all the local wildlife right at their door-step. The call of the 'congos' swinging through the trees, gigantic toads, a myriad of brightly colored insects and butterflies, bromeliads growing all over the trees, exotic flowers. Bird watchers will be in heaven here in overlooking the treetops at the toucans, hawks, vultures, hummingbirds, parrots and more. The house is located in a spacious gated community 10 kilometers up the mountain on a country dirt road from the town of Nuevo Arenal. The road is in decent condition at most times (depending on rainfall). A rental car is a must, and 4x4 recommended. The development is secluded, yet still close to town and all the local amenities. Being higher in elevation, you will always enjoy a fresher, crisper, breezier climate than 'down the mountain'- between 5-10 degrees difference on average. Unlike many beach areas in Costa Rica where it is always the same weather-hot and humid- here you can experience a refreshing mix of sunshine and heat with rain, clouds, mist, and cooler weather. Our family lives on the property as well with our 2 large dogs. The two houses are separated completely, and we will never interfere, but are glad to be of any assistance if needed. The town of Nuevo Arenal has three grocery stores, two banks with ATMs, two pharmacies, gift shops, a gas station, a farmer's market and several bars and restaurants. There is also a "laundromat" in town where you can bring your soiled clothing to be washed, dried and folded (charged per kilo). The town is 20-30 minute drive from the house, depending on road conditions. Because of the distance to town, we always recommend that our guests do any shopping for provisions BEFORE heading up the mountain. We also HIGHLY recommend arriving before nightfall if possible, as the road to our house is dark and bumpy, and can be disconcerting to weary travelers.
