Property Details

Updated: Sep 15, 2014
Main house and 2 cabinas sleeps up to 10 people.

A gorgeous tropical mountain property that can accommodate up to 10 people. Main house has 3-bedrooms and 2-baths. Our 2 cabinas each have private baths and king size beds.

Close to town for convenient shopping but secluded enough to have the opportunity to enjoy the many birds and wildlife and listen to the howler monkeys.

You'll pass through the security gate and head up the hill to your vacation paradise. Your first impression will be the incredible views but then you'll notice the infinity pool.

Step into the house to find everything you'll need to enjoy your vacation, full kitchen, entertainment center, internet, clean linens, comfortable patio where you'll appreciate our piece of paradise.

I am so glad we got to experience this piece of paradise! Everything about Arco Iris is perfect and so private!!
It has all the comforts of home. Beautiful kitchen with new appliances, electric and gas stove ( the gas has a full size grill), 2 fridges, a dishwasher and a great laundry room with new appliances as well.
After a day outdoors, you can retire to the living room and sink into the big comfy furniture. The dinning room has a nice big table for everyone to sit at and also a bar area. Besides the 3 bedrooms in the house, there are 2 well equipped cabinas that have lots of closet space, small fridge and microwave as well as a good size bathroom with large shower.
When you are outside at Arco Iris you will find a fully tiled walkway leading from the house to the cabinas and to the beautiful infinity pool. The view is breathtaking, the birds are spectacular , you will see every colour of the rainbow and hear some beautiful sounds.
You can walk or drive to town for everything you need, and I must say "the people of Costa Rica are wonderful".
We have most definatly found our holiday destination

Tropical Paradise

  • 4 of 5
The listing for this tropical paradise cannot describe the true beauty and tranquil setting that greets you when you arrive at Arco Iris. A beautiful main home and 2 cabinas that have all of the amenities that you would ever want or need. The tiled walkways provide for easy access to all that the home has to offer. A large kitchen, bar, living and dining area, bathrooms and laundry area are all well set up for easy access. The home and property is well maintained and spotless. Plenty of fresh linens and towels were provided along with everything you would need to prepare an easy meal or a gourmet meal, whatever you desired. The lush trees, vegetation, beautiful flowers and visits from the many different varities of birds were a delight. An added bonus was the dishwasher as well. We visited the hot springs, the gingerbread restaurant, La Fortuna, Arenal volcano, pure blue waterfalls and we mixed with the friendly locals at Iguana's bar. Located close to town within less then a 5 minute drive you will find everything you need for your stay. We have visited many all inclusive tropical desitnations over the years and I can truly say that this was the most relaxing and tranquil tropical destination holiday we have ever been on. We will be returning as often as we can. I would love to have all of my friends and family visit and stay at this tropical paradise and have and will continue to recommend it to any one who is thinking about visiting the beautiful country Costa Rica.

Good Value, Needs TLC

  • 4 of 5
Arco Iris is a property with tremendous potential. Our party (five adults and three teenagers) arrived at Arco Iris on Christmas Day 2013. Our hosts, Jeff and Beth, were very helpful with our pre-arrival questions and with local information.

We arrived in the dark, so we could not yet see the fabulous view of Lake Arenal. Upon arrival, we discovered there was no phone and no internet, and a recent theft (of the television) appeared to be perpetrated by someone with keys to the property. This caused us some fear for our safety the first night.

Jeff returned the next day and fixed the internet. The phone issue turned out to be an off-property issue. This property could be amazing, but little details need attention. The beautiful mural by the entry is diminished by the sagging and damaged screen door. The curtains in one bedroom fell off the wall when we tried to open them. The carport is cluttered and lends a disheveled feeling overall.

In its favor, Arco Iris has a great pool which we really enjoyed. The kitchen is well-stocked with amenities and the space was perfect for our party of eight. Overall, it is a great value.

With some attention, this could be an immaculate property. Primary items needing attention include: repairing the phone, repairing the washing machine (parts were on order), removing the water heater from the timer (which is put ‘off’ each time the power fails, a fairly frequent occurrence). The other cosmetic stuff just prevents this from being an A-List property.

For those wanting more property details: the main house has three bedrooms and two baths, this includes a master suite with a King bed. The table seats eight comfortably, however there are only six chairs inside (we pressed some outdoor furniture into use). Each of the two cabinas has a queen bed and en suite bath. The beds were comfortable and not saggy. The temperature was very pleasant, and the breezes are constant, so we did not require climate control, as the nights were pleasantly cool.

One item to note: the property is about 40 minutes from La Fortuna. Most of our planned activities were there, so it was a bit of a drive every day. It’s a beautiful drive, though, with dramatic views of the lake and the volcano.
