“Beautiful property with great lake views!”
Reviewed April 18, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

What a beautiful place! The lake views from the property are amazing. There are several walk paths that lead to future building places and the higher you went the greater the views. We also liked the lookout/outdoor room where you could bring a picnic and just enjoy the view. We would recommend hanging a hammock or two there (perfect place for a nap with the light breeze). We enjoyed discovering the many different birds and their sometimes strange sounds they make.
We were startled by the 3 horses and 3 dogs roaming around, we guess from the gardeners. The first night we were walking in the yard close to the house with a flashlight and accidentally shown in the face of one horse that came charging out the bushes. It took a little while before we figured out what the large animal was that came storming at us. It was funny later on when we were safe back in the house, still would have been good to know beforehand.
The house is large and has everything one could possibly need, although I would suggest adding a couple of long chairs on the patio, it makes for much better relaxation then sitting in the plastic chairs only.
I have to agree with the previous review, the 10 minute trip from the village to the house is really bad. Not simply a gravel road but an exhausting ride over soccer ball size rocks. Bad for my back and neck and made me not wanting to leave the house at all. The village is nice with good little shops and restaurants. Once the new road is in place I would highly recommend this little paradise!

We are glad you enjoyed all that our property has to offer... even the wildlife. As to the road, the good news is that they just started the repairs April 29th ---- what a great piece of news!!

All of the bad spots in the road are clear now and when they complete the process of resurfacing with new gravel and compaction, it will be a breeze. These repairs have been long awaited and finally coming to fruition.

“A bumpy road to paradise”
Reviewed March 27, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

person found this review helpful

The place is knock your socks off beautiful, your own little bit of paradise almost at the top of a mountain,. Unfortunately nothing was in season when we were there so we couldn't enjoy the bounty of the 65 acres, but the beauty and quiet couldn't be beat. We (we were two couples ) spent the mornings sipping coffee and evenings sipping wine on the great patio while vying to see who could spot something new...make sure you bring binoculars.

The only downside was the road . We did see a few non 4 wheel drive cars on the road, but the rocks and ruts made for a slow slow bumpy journey. We stayed for four nights , and ate dinner in once. Cooking facilities were ample to make dinner and breakfasts/lunches. The location (Nuevo Arenal) was great for visiting La Fortuna as well as Rio Celeste. For us it was much preferable to being in LaFortuna.

We are glad you enjoyed our slice of paradise. You need to make sure you come again when our orchard of Oranges, Mandarins, Grapefruit, Lemons, Limes, Pineapples and Bananas are ripe... such a feast. We have just planted a grove of Macadamia trees too!

On the road front... we finally received word from the local Municipality that our road is scheduled for a major redo in April/May this year.. this is welcomed news!

April 29, 2014 UPDATE --- the road repairs have begun... great news!!! The machines came to scrape and re-grade the bad spots and when they apply the new gravel and compaction it will be a breeze. What a welcomed sight and sound when we heard the machines working...
