vacation rental description

We are central, yet secluded, with patios, balconies and grounds looking on to the world famous Arenal Volcano. This Almendro home has a wrap-around balcony, is gated and very private.

We are near the charming town of La Fortuna, and our area is famous for its diversity of interests. These include bird watching, river rafting, jungle cruises, jungle canopy tours, butterfly farms, horseback riding, world famous spas and hot springs or relaxing and enjoying the best views of the spectacular Arenal Volcano. And because we are well located on the main road, all is within easy access. I encourage everyone who is planning on visiting to read the reviews of our home to help determine your decision for your visit to this lovely part of the world.

We have been a Bed and Breakfast for about 15 years, with excellent reviews in the guide books, Our housekeeper/cook Miriam is local, friendly, helpful and has developed a great reputation for her breakfasts, which you can read about in the reviews. She is the soul of the place.

Security: Although the property is on the main road, with easy access to all the local attractions, it is gated, fenced, on a partial rise, and thus very safe and private. The newly formed 'tourist police' make regular checks with all the property owners.

Beginning in the new year (2015) we will also be looking at long term rentals

    • We have a housekeeper who will have everything prepared for your arrival. The house is situated on the Rio La Palma which is a short hike down to the bottom of the property. Across the small river, actually a large creek, is jungle. Monkeys visit regularly but at times known only to them. We have feeders so there are always plenty of birds around. Deer, wild boar, pesote, and other animals have also been sited. Of course there is an abundance of flowers as well. It s a very comfortable home which fits into the surrounding ambiance quite naturally. There are interesting views everywhere. It is private and enclosed yet near everything the area has to offer.

traveler reviews for this lake arenal house rental

Bird lover paradise

Review submitted: May 11, 2014   Date of arrival: May 5, 2014

We stayed for only 3 nights. This is a very nice place. The 3rd bedroom is above the carport. There are wrap around porches on both floors of the house. Part of our group are bird watchers and they had plenty of birds to watch. There was a pair of toucans that can ever day to the tree near by. Miriam made AWSOME breakfast every day. The only bad thing was the noise. There is traffic because of the main road and at night Mother Nature gets a little loud. If your a light sleeper bring some earplugs. But we enjoyed our stay and would stay here again if we ever come back.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, people with disabilities, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: Thank You so much, Katherine, and we're so happy we lived up to our reputation. I'll pass your kind words on to Miriam.

All the very best,

Amazing Property. Even more amazing service!

Review submitted: April 28, 2014   Date of arrival: April 13, 2014

Grant's home is fantastic. Everything you need to relax and enjoy your time there. It's completely private, yet located on the main road......this made getting around extremely convenient. Hot Springs and tons of outdoor adventure are within an easy walk or drive.

Owners response: Thank you so much for your kind words, Russ, and I'll certainly pass them along to Miriam. As you know we don't advertise at all so these reviews mean everything to us. Cheers, and I hope you enjoyed the remainder of your holiday in Costa Rica as much as you did in La Posada!

All the very best, Grant

Excellent getaway spot!

Review submitted: September 3, 2013   Date of arrival: August 24, 2013

Christine and Ian were awesome hosts that provided us with a wealth of information to help us decide on our desired adventures which we enjoyed oh so much. Miriam made an awesome breakfast each morning during our stay and is an excellent asset for this property. She deserves kuddos for her ability to cook and clean and perhaps an increase in her salary? :-) Thank you so very much for an awesome time.
