    Property description
    La Fortuna de San Carlos
    Rental Home – 
    1 Bedroom, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4
    Villa Hermosa is a beautiful private guesthouse located 7km from the main road that runs from downtown La Fortuna and the Arenal Volcano National Park & Arenal Lake. The guesthouse is in a quiet local neighborhood "away from it all" yet close enough to get to the action when you want it! There is a large pool with cascading waterfall and a large deck for laying in the sun, watching the birds or just watching the volcano. The best part is...you don't have to share it with anybody else!!!

    The natural surroundings here give you an experience of Costa Rica that you cannot get from staying in a hotel in town. We want your experience here to be the best possible and will do all that we can to make it happen! People who get the most out of staying here take the time to just...

    Additional Location Information
    We are located in the Costa Rican countryside in a rural area where the locals live. Daily there are people riding by on their horses, walking their cows down the road to go to another grazing area and our neighbor still uses his ox-cart! The guesthouse is in it's own oasis of tropical plants and has beautiful views of rolling hills and of Volcano Arenal. We don't have traditional addresses here (and we don't receive postal service) so if you have any questions about exactly where we are, please check out our website as there are directions, maps, videos and more: http://www.theVillaHermosa.com

Just returned from a fabulous trip in Costa Rica with our family of four and our stay at the Villa Hermosa was SO wonderful! It is about 10-15 minutes off the beaten track, but what a nice surprise to find a beautiful guest house, pool, lush grounds, large patio with outdoor living space, grill, hammocks, pool table and more!
