traveler reviews for this lake arenal estate rental

Stunning views and a spacious house on an estate

Review submitted: April 24, 2014   Date of arrival: April 12, 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at this estate overlooking Lake Arenal. The directions given were very accurate, but plan to arrive before dark because getting there the first time can be a little tricky. The pictures give a good sense of the beauty of this estate with views from every window of the house and gorgeous blooming flowers all around. The house is very spacious with lots of room to spread out and our kids appreciated the wireless internet and Roku box that allowed them to access Netflix. A caretaker and his family live in a house at the bottom of the hill and his wife came in daily to make up the beds. The house was well maintained and very clean. There were a few insects, but nothing out of the ordinary for a tropical region. My only regret is that we were so busy with activities and sight-seeing that I didn't have enough time to just sit on one of the benches outside the house to take in the view and relax.

We used this property as a home base for exploring Arenal volcano and Monte Verde Cloud forest, both of which are a couple of hours away. We also visited the Viente Fresca waterfalls which was about 45 minutes from the house. We tried to find the Mariposaria (Butterfly Farm) in town, but a bridge was washed out, so we never made it there. A highlight for us was the La Roca Waterfall Canyoneering tour in the Arenal Hanging Bridges area run by Sunset tours (reserve through The guides were very personable and the canyoneering was really fun for our whole family. We combined this afternoon tour with the Arenal Hanging Bridges in the morning and the Baldi Hot springs at night. On the day we went to Selvatura in the Monte Verde Cloud Forest, we found that the dirt road had a lengthy detour and then further on, several phone poles had fallen across the road and had to be moved. Give yourself plenty of time to get to any reserved activities since you never know what the road conditions may be. I believe you can also book tours in the nearby town of Tilaran if you are more comfortable leaving the driving to others.

We ate in several restaurants in Tronadora, the small town where the estate is located, as well as in a few restaurants around the lake and all of them served tasty food. If you like fish and shrimp, make sure you try the Cevicheria as you come into town.

In summary, we found this house a welcome retreat to come home to after days packed with activity.

Owners response: Thank you. It is our true pleasure to host families such as yours. We hope that you will visit us again soon.

Beautiful location, good value

Review submitted: January 7, 2014   Date of arrival: December 28, 2013

This is an ample house located on a beautiful setting. The view from everywhere is stunning, the garden around the house is well kept and there are enough places in the house to enjoy all these.
The appliances have been updated and the kitchen is well equipped. A few furniture pieces deserve renovation and some parts of the house require more maintenance like the spa that wasn’t working (this could have been communicated since it’s advertised) and the windows need some cleaning.
The house is 1.5hr from both tourist spots La Fortuna and Monteverde. The Arenal Lake also offers lots of opportunities but bring your own equipment since rental is limited in the area. Dinning offer is limited in the nearby Tilarán, but better around the lake going towards Nuevo Arenal (~30min drive)
We were a group of 10 adults and 5 kids and found the house ample enough for all of us. Lots of room to play for the kids inside and outside the house. We didn’t find the extra mattresses and they were not offered either so some of us had to use the coaches to sleep since there are only 4 king beds in the house.
Now, it’s always been my understanding that the “Outside” section of the Amenities is for stuff that the house comes with and “Attractions” is for stuff that is available in the area. The house has no bikes nor boats, as the owner let me know when I asked. This is a clarification note in case you have the same interpretation of the List of Amenities that I have.
All of all, this is a good rental if you want to relax in a quiet and comfortable place but still close to a lot of action. I would rent again.

Owners response: The renter's expectations are unusual. For a few hundred dollars per night, for 15 people, they expect bikes and boats to be provided. This is the first renter that expected these!. In addition, just before arrival, the renter asked if he could bring a few more adults to stay. We respectfully had to say no. This , in our humble opinion, is simply a case of too much being expected for too little a payment.

In any event we are honored and privileged that this group of 15 people chose to stay at our estate and enjoyed it.

spectacular views!

Review submitted: March 13, 2012   Date of arrival: February 22, 2012

Emmaculately kept grounds- surrounded by gorgeous flowers and spectacular view of lake Arenal. Our group of 7 people found this home a nice retreat and launching pad for our daily local activities. The owners were very helpful and super nice to work with. The gounds keeper only spoke spanish but was very helpful and we worked through that. The place is just like the photos- very spacious and well kept. The master bedroom had amazing views with plenty of space - more like a very large living room with sofa and TV and internet.- It would be a good honeymoon suite.
We really enjoyed going to Monte Verde for the day and did the zipline there with the Original Tour- very fun!

Owners response: We very much enjoyed hosting you.
