Property Details

Updated: May 3, 2015
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.

If you wish to rent only the house in high season, the rate is $150 per night and in low season $130 per night. If you wish to rent the cabinas, they are $40 each per night in high season and $30 each per night in low season.

If you only wish to rent the house, the cabinas will NOT be rented out to others during your stay at Arco Iris.

Nuevo Arenal Arenal Volcano - Lake Arenal
Toronto, Ontario

Definitely 5 stars!

  • 5 of 5
I was lucky enough to stay here 2 years ago and it was the best holiday I have had in a very long time! The property is breathtaking, the weather phenomenal and the location exotic! The property is very clean and the decor very tropical and stylish. I can't wait to go back in 2015! The property is spacious, close to the town of Arenal and within quick driving distance to the volcanos, Tabacon Springs and other highlights.

All you could want. Breathtaking beauty!

  • 5 of 5
I will definitely give this property a 5/5. This location has it all. You can fit right in with the locals in the town located only minutes away, AND you can see all the beauty and many attractions that Costa Rica has to offer. After reading the previous comments in regards to amenities offered in the house and the tourist attractions located close to the property, I felt it unnecessary to repeat. From the breathtaking beauty to the comfort and cleanliness of the main house and cabinas, it truly feels like home away from home.

Many hours were spent by the pool each day. The view...leaves you speechless. Watching the birds come and go is truly magical, especially my favourite, the Macaws.

A 10-15 minute walk will get you to the centre of town to pick up fresh veggies and all the ingredients you need for a great meal. Cooking was a cinch in the very spacious kitchen.

When we felt like eating out there were multiple choices, from fancy to basic. We tried a few different places, including The Gingerbread, and all were amazing! Another favourite was a little Italian restaurant about half way to town...only 10 minutes from Arco Iris.

It wasn't our first time visiting Costa Rica but it was our first time at this location. It will definitely will not be our last. Can't wait to go back to Arco Iris next year!

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.
