La Fortuna de San Carlos, Arenal Volcano National Park, Province of Alajuela
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, reading a book or watching the birds. 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 relax in the hammocks, by the swimming pool, play darts, sho...

My husband and I live in Costa Rica and have been to Arenal many times. We always enjoy seeing the volcano, going hiking, being by the lake, and the hot springs. But La Fortuna and the Arenal area can get pretty full with tourists. So, when we can find a way to explore and enjoy Arenal off-the-beaten-path, it’s a hidden...

Wendy's warmth and hospitality began months before my trip when she sent directions to a grocery store (and even offered to pick things up for me if I sent a list) and it continued throughout our entire trip. This wasn't just a rental home, it was having Wendy there as a local guide with wonderful suggestions for making the most...

Wow, what a beautiful property! Directions getting there were exact and when the iron gates opened up we were amazed. You can't tell what an oasis this place is from the road. Wendy has done such a wonderful job with not only the decorating, which is clean and colorful, but with thinking of absolutely everything we would need. Coffee, milk...
