La Fortuna de San Carlos, Arenal Volcano National Park, Province of Alajuela
Villa Hermosa is a beautiful property with a main guesthouse with a 1 bedroom suite with 1 King and 1 Queen and an additional separate small house located in the garden with 1 Queen & 1 Twin. The gorgeous private property is located 7km (4.4 miles) 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...

Villa Hermosa was exactly as stated and more. We enjoyed hanging out by the pool, playing darts, and walking through the bueatiful garden trail. My son enjoyed petting the therapy horses behind the property and Wendy's dogs. We enjoyed the outdoor living space and cooking some of our meals. I would recommend getting inside after dark if you don't like...

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...

About the neighborhood
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: The Villa Hermosa .com
