IMPORTANT UPDATE... April 12, 2016, The road to our property has been re-graded so it is easily accessible by all size vehicles. We are excited that the municipality has vastly improved our road.
Gated and Private. Meticulously maintained 65+ acre private retreat with flowers and wildlife too numerous to mention. Over 3 miles of private hiking trails, many leading to fantastic vistas of the surrounding mountains, volcano and lake. The house is a compact 2,500 square foot open floor plan design with 5 bedrooms (1 queen, 1 full, and 4 twin and 1 bunk bed) and 2 bathrooms and sleeps 10. Each bedroom has great views. Full kitchen inside with local hand made cabinetry and a local hand made eat-in dining table that seats up to 10.The veranda on the back of the house is huge with great views of the lake and has a working wood stove that can serve as an outdoor kitchen. All linens, towels and kitchen utensils onsite.
If you are looking smaller, less expensive, accommodations, please check out our Blue Butterfly Cottage on our property..... a cozy, quiet and private cottage that sleeps 1-4 adults.. Contact us for details about our cottage for up to 4 persons.
We have a 1 acre private natural swimming pond with platforms and swimming ladders for ease of use. Make sure you check out our photos.
We have many banana, pineapple, orange, mandarin, grapefruit, lemon, lime, breadfruit trees and more. You are welcome to enjoy all that the property has to offer.
We have a relationship with professional tour providers for those wanting to explore the area's many exotic adventures like Zip-Lining, Fishing, White-Water Rafting, Kayaking, Mountain biking, ATV Adventure, Waterfall Hikes, Cave Exploring, Hanging Bridge Tour, Volcanic Hot Springs and more. Cost for each tour is different and information is made available after confirmation of booking.
We are only 2.5km (1.5 miles) outside the Town of Nuevo Arenal. Close to shopping, tours and dining. Our location makes a perfect base for those wanting to explore all Costa Rica has to offer or just relax and enjoy the many hiking trails, flora, fauna and wildlife without leaving the property.
Please note: If you are planning to rent a vehicle, make sure it has high clearance. 4X4 is not really necessary but something with high clearance is... something like a mini-SUV or larger. We strongly recommend something larger than a compact or economy car. Although the roads are safe, they can be bumpy especially after rainy season and the road to our property is not paved.TripAdvisor property ID 2100804...Read more
Left on 05/31/2014 for a stay in May 2014 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed May 31, 2014Stayed May 2014
Our family of six greatly enjoyed our two weeks at this beautiful property. The house is large and modern and four bedrooms. The TV room is far from the living and bed rooms, which is nice since some of the family could watch TV without waking others who were sleeping.
The property is amazing--miles of paths to walk on, ranging from paved driveways to hidden jungle trails that we didn't find until several days into our trip. There is lots of wildlife and many nice views.
We enjoyed picking fresh fruit and vegetables from the orchard and garden (which saved us a lot on groceries). The house is a couple kilometers from the town of Nuevo Arenal, which is very pleasant and has everything you need--groceries, bank, gas, etc. Previous commenters complained about the rough road, but it is actively being repaired and about a quarter of the length was completely graded and re-stoned during our stay.
The manager was very helpful in arranging housecleaning, a nanny, Spanish lessons, and cooking--the entire staff was excellent, including the gardener who arranged horseback riding on the property.
We always appreciate guests that share their experience on our property and the surrounding area. We strive to provide the best experience possible and we constantly work to improve the property. Truly, the best Costa Rican experience is the hospitality and generosity of the locals that work with us---thank you Marvin, Jason, Flory, Annia and Henry...
