Property Details

Updated: Feb 17, 2015
House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This charming two-bedroom, two-bath lakefront home is located on the shore of beautiful Lake Arenal, a scenic 1 hour 10 minute drive from Liberia International Airport. The house is situated on a secluded 1 ½ acre parcel replete with lush tropical flowers, shrubs, and trees. The neighborhood is called Puerto San Luis and is one of the drier areas of the Lake Arenal area. Private yet convenient, it is less than 10 minutes away from the quaint town of Tilarán, where you’ll find banks, supermarkets, restaurants, and other amenities.

If you’re looking to rent a house in the Lake Arenal area, there are many choices, BUT – if you want to be right on the lake, the choices are few and far between. That’s what sets this house apart from other rentals. This property is right on the lakefront of the magnificent Lake Arenal, where you can swim, fish, wind surf, kite surf, and kayak (kayak provided). Or – you can pick some limes on the grounds, make a cool drink, and just “veg out” on the terrace, while you watch the monkeys cavorting in the treetops. From the terrace you can see Lake Arenal and from the house you can see the Arenal Volcano.

Comfortable, affordable, spacious yet cozy. You’ll have a fully equipped kitchen with a stove, refrigerator, microwave, blender, coffee maker, toaster and bread machine. The master bedroom has a full bath and queen-sized bed. The second bedroom has a full sized bed. There is a second bathroom, a comfortable living room that has a flat plasma TV with satellite service, a dining area with a large table, and a laundry room with washer and dryer. The house underwent an extensive renovation in 2010. If you need access to the internet, there is wireless internet.

For more information, don’t hesitate to contact us. We can suggest nearby activities such as Rio Celeste, the best kept secret in all of Costa Rica. The light blue river is surrounded by amazing rainforest that sports one of Costa Rica's most beautiful waterfalls, natural hot springs, as well as the unique phenomenon of clear water turning blue by means of a volcanic chemical reaction. We can provide real estate services as well. It will be our pleasure to answer all your questions.

Great stay at Lake Arenal.

  • 5 of 5
This lovely home on Lake Arenal was the perfect New Year's Get-a-way. The house is lovely, with all the modern conveniences you could want or need. Everything was immaculate upon my arrival. The property is secure with a fence running around the entire perimeter and the garden is simply lovely. The owner was kind enough to allow me to bring my dogs and we enjoyed walking the gardens, and going down to the lake. The lake side is just 5 minutes from the house, so that was super convenient. The owner and the manager of the property were great to work with, super nice and responsive. This is a superb place to just sit back and relax, read, and watch movies, and enjoy the flora and fauna of Costa Rica. I look forward to returning to this house in the near future.

Relaxing New Year in well equipped home

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay in this property. The owners and their property manager were very helpful and quick to respond to any queries. The house is well looked after, clean and really well equipped compared to many we have stayed in, particularly the kitchen, which had everything we needed, including pantry items such as herbs, spices cooking oil etc, which was really useful for our short stay. The garden is fabulous and huge and the patio is a great spot for bird watching. Although not on the doorstep of La Fortuna (and therefore many of the area's attractions) we found it perfectly viable for day trips and the drives around the area are spectacular anyway! We would not hesitate to recommend this property.

Cozy Comfort at Lake Arenal

  • 5 of 5
We were lucky enough to stay at Casa Sullo for a month in Jan/Feb, 2014. The house was very clean and comfortable, with all the amenities you could want. Nice big screen TV with a wide assortment of videos to watch. The property is beautiful with a short walk to the lake. It is very private and secure, and ideally located for touring around the lake. We enjoyed relaxing out on the deck overlooking the lake and being entertained by howler monkeys and all different kinds of birds. There is even a lime tree right outside your door for your cocktails. Pat the owner was very accommodating and even allowed us to bring our dog and cat, which we appreciated. Coryn his property manager was a pleasure to deal with, she was very helpful and made sure our stay was great. She was always very responsive to any requests or information that we required. Thanks again Pat and Coryn. For sure go to Las Brisas restaurant, it has a great menu and some of the best food we have eaten in Costa Rica. Also check out the waterfalls at Viento Fresco, a bit of a hike in, but worth it, you can swim into and under the falls.

Casa Sullo is a wonderful place to stay. Prior to our arrival, the owner was extremely helpful with not only the details for the house, but car rental information, sightseeing recommendations, etc. The house is comfortable and extremely clean. The back patio looks out over Lake Arenal, with a walking path down to the lake. There are kayaks available for the use of visitors. We were lucky enough to have howler monkeys in the backyard while we were there, and of course, many beautiful birds. It is close to windsurfing, Volcan National Park, and Monteverde. There are two great restaurants within walking distance, and a fully stocked kitchen if you want to cook. We were there for 4 nights and 3 days and enjoyed every minute. There were four retired adults in our party and we would all return for future visits.

Our first taste of Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5
We were fortunate to stay in this beautiful home for most of Dec. and Jan. The house is much more than the pictures show. It is a beautiful home on a gorgeous lot with a nice view of Lake Arenal. The house is very well equipped with everything you could want , good quality furnishings , a nice gas barbecue and lots of spices etc for your use. We loved sitting on the patio in the morning watching the howler monkeys in the trees , saw so many different birds we lost count. The property is very secure, gated and fenced all around. The owner Pat was so helpful before we arrived. He sent a list of activities , tips for cell phone use and general information about the area. We may not have found some of these things without his tips so we appreciated the help. The property manager Coryn is a gem!!! She was always available to answer questions , give tips on grocery store, butcher shop etc.
This house is close to Tronadora and Tilaran so shopping is very convenient. Our first night Coryn recommended Las Brisas restaurant and it became our favourite and it's only five minutes from house . The other restaurant you don't want to miss is Gingerbread outside of Arenal, five star dining! It is a little bit of a drive to get to the volcano but very scenic and worth it. We enjoyed our time at Casa Sullo and hope to return.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the kind words. We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay at our home. We are glad that our commitment to provide quality accommodations and act as a resource to our guests is appreciated. We are fortunate to have had you stay with us for your extended vacation. We took your advice and our garbage "cage" is now enclosed in a type of fencing material that will prevent the dogs from getting into it while at the same time still allows for periodic blasting with a power washer to keep it clean. Thanks again and we hope to see you next year!

Very nice accommodations and home extra well stocked - so don't stop at store until you have checked it out. Owner was extremely attentive and informative in the weeks preceding stay. And their manager Coryn was a dream. I would highly recommend this home for your stay in Arenal.
