“paradise”
Reviewed March 23, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We were two coupple from Canada visiting Costa rica. Villa Trentino was our favorite place of the entire vacation. The first morning we were treated to a view of volcano Arenal which is great from the house´s balcony. We did zip lining and hot springs that the host Stefano suggested and both were greats experiences.
We considerate Villa Trentino a beautifull place and the host´s suggestions and the personal treatment were the perfect ones, so we recommend this place to everybody

“Stefano was amaaaazing! ”

I just got back from an amazing vacation in Costa Rica, part of the reason it was so amazing was because of Stefano. He was 110% prepared for us. He had a folder of tons of excursions we could plan, and he was extremely knowledgeable on all. He was so helpful with planning each excursion. He went above and beyond even though he didn't need to. The house was very clean and we felt very safe there. Although we had excursions every day planned, the time we spent at the house was worth every penny. We bought groceries, which helped us save money and prepared some of our meals there. Everything we needed was available there for us. They even had laundry soap so we could do our laundry. It's the little touches that count, Stefano went above and beyond! Thank you for a unforgettable adventure. Pura Vida

Myself and 3 girlfriends stayed at this lovely Villa for 5 days. Prior to arrival I emailed Stefano with 100 silly questions, which he answered everyone promptly. He even suggested a company called Bike Arenal to pick us up at the airport. They arrived promptly and dropped us right off at the Villas front gates, where Stefano was waiting to greet us with a smile and a hug. He then showed us to the beautiful villa which is decorated with modern touches and costarician styling. Beautiful wood work and furniture. There was a full kitchen, coffeemaker, microwave, stove, dishes, washer and dryer, linens, towels, tvs, ac. Everything one would have at home. It even has an alarm system (which we managed to set off many times...sorry Stefano). After a tour Stefano set down with us to find out what our interest were, He had a ton of information, and the best prices for all. Let him book your activities as he know all the ins and outs and who offers the best tours. We ziplinned, ATV tours, hot springs, Volcano hikes and white water rafted. Stefano kindly called all the places...we had to do nothing but enjoy! He even ordered us a pizza for delivery and called to check on transportation for our next destination. Stefano is truly what made our trip so awesome. He went above and beyond what any hotel has ever offered in my travels. He is a kind spirit who you will enjoy every minute chatting with if you do so choose. He speaks fluent Spanish, English and probably Italian. His wife is a beautiful latin woman who always have and smiled at us everytime we arrived home. If I ever come back to La Fortuna I will absolutely with out a doubt stay here. Its safe, fun and what I would call a home away from home.
Thank you Stefano for giving us a trip we will all never forget!!

“Our favorite place in Costa Rica”
Reviewed March 8, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Villa Trentino was the better place where we stayed in our vacation in Costa Rica. The house is spotless, surrounded by a big tropical garden, with amazing volcano Arenal´s view and offers what for us is absolutely indispensable, that´s to say air conditioning and free internet. Stefano was the most gracious host we ever encountered in our travels. Thanks to his advices, we´ve done very interesting tours, our favorite was rafting and ATV. A must do also is sky adventure zip lining, it is out of this world and a true adrenaline rush.
Thank you so much Stefano for your time and generosity and for sharing your knowledge

“A short drive to everything downtown La Fortuna”
Reviewed November 14, 2015 for a stay in November 2015
4
people found this review helpful

In a previous review, a writer complained that the house was at the end of a very badly maintained road. In Costa Rica all side roads are badly maintained. Good examples are the roads to Arenal Volcano NP and La Fortuna waterfall. The house is a little old and it shows, but it was clean and quite at night. No A.C. but it cools down in the evening. Actually none of the downtown businesses have A.C. Everything worked and the bed linens and towels were like new. The house has an alarm system and the property is protected by a locked gate. Not really within walking distance to town, but in November parking was plentiful. This is probably not true in high (dry) season. Great food choices from Sodas to linen table service and everything in between.
