          The SpaceWe rented this little 2 bedroom house. As a designer I decided to transform the house and give it a modern cozy look with the furniture we could get our hand on. The house has a nice back yard great for BBQ or sitting enjoying nature. Your room has a custom made bed with its own closet space. We are lucky to have been able to installed wifi, you'll be able to check in and update your friends and family. We work in the dairy farm, a family business. It was featured on Forbes Magazine on how it uses "the internet of things". Each cow has chip that sends data to Holland so we can understand the cows health better. For those interesting in visiting and playing with calfs, we offer tours with the opportunity in learning how tot make Greek Yogurt! (our favorite breakfast). Guest AccessThe house is small and cozy. We want to make you guys feel like home, your more than welcome to use the living room and dining area. We are remodeling the kitchen so we do not have a place to cook yet, but we have a huge fridge if you need to keep anything cold. The house has only one bathroom so we ask our guest to maintain it clean. Interaction with GuestsWe are quite busy on our day to day task but we always like to at least get to know our guests, give them some pointers on what to do, where to go. The NeighborhoodIts a small quiet neighborhood, only 300 people live here. There is a small connivence store around the corner for basic products. A italian restaurant is near by for great food, a yoga retreat for yoggies! Every 1 and 3 sunday there is a Farmers market you guys can enjoy! A few minutes drive is a local brewy which you can taste artesian beers and enjoy an amazing view of Volcano Arenal and the lake. Rio celeste is only 45 min away. 10 min drive to Lake Arenal where you can Kite and Wind surf!! not mention paddle board and fish!!
