vacation rental description

The beautiful cottage retreat is the perfect home away from home! This property is set in the heart of the village, close to the local restaurants, the grocery store and lots of fun activities. The village of El Castillo is tucked in the rainforest, in the mountains, on lake Arenal. Home to about 240 'ticos' and about 12 Americans, this village has lots to offer! If it is action and adventure you are looking for try zip-lining through the rainforest at Sky Trek Adventures or go exploring on horseback to one of the three waterfalls and take a swim. Kayaking is always fun and what a way to catch some sun and some fish!! Go rappelling or canyoning at Rancho Margot or white water rafting for even more adventure. You can go to The Butterfly Conservatory or The Snake Zoo all right here in Castillo! When it is time to unwind after a long day of adventure, nothing will soothe your bones like a soak in the free Hot Springs! This village may be small, but can pack a huge vacation!

We will be happy to book any of these local attractions at no charge to you:

* Hanging Bridges

* Zip Lines

* Hot Springs

* ATV and other rentals

* Butterfly Conservatory

* Eco-Snake Zoo

* Horseback Riding

* Volcano Hikes

* Much more

This home away from home is a true gem!

traveler reviews for this lake arenal house rental

Dream Honeymoon

Review submitted: February 27, 2014   Date of arrival: February 6, 2014

My husband and I booked fairly last minute with Nancy and she was extremely helpful with providing information and helping us book a car rental though I would say to any future travellers rent a GPS and put 'Butterfly Conservatory' into the GPS as a handy trick to find the place since street names don't really exist ;) The GPS was invaluable. So was Nancy's aid in booking excursions and providing information on the area. I highly recommend the horseback riding, it was my favourite part of the trip. As for the cottage itself there was a kitchen with a very nice stove, 2 bedrooms, dining bench, bathroom, shower, laundry room, and TV living room type area. Everything was very clean (though don't be surprised to find bugs now and then, it is Costa Rica and they aren't that scary) and there were plenty of towels. The view from the balcony was amazing and I would spend every morning sitting in the hammock reading and watching the birds fly by. We liked the option of the 2 bedrooms because in spite of it being just the two of us we could chose which one we found more comfortable. The locals were all friendly and a week simply wasn't long enough in this area so we'll have to return some day :D

Great location & Lovely house

Review submitted: January 13, 2014   Date of arrival: December 26, 2013

We spent 3 days during our last Costa Rica vacations in la Fortuna. The house was clean and everything was ready for our arrival. The view from the Hammock toward the Arenal Volcano was just bluffing. The neighborhood was very quite.

Nancy has been a great help during our trip. From booking activities to getting a local restaurant address, she made our stay more serene.

I would recommend this rental without reservations.

Charming cottage

Review submitted: August 14, 2013   Date of arrival: August 5, 2013

Our family of 4 stayed at this cottage for 3 nights. We wish we could have stayed longer. The cottage is perfect. With a washer and dryer, wireless, comfortable beds and a great view from the hammock. It is located about 10k off the highway on a dirt road in a small village called El Castillo. You will definately need a car.

Additionally, Nancy, the owner was so helpful in helping us book activities and giving us information on the area. Her recommendation for horseback riding turned out to be the ride of a lifetime with Leelander at Appaloosa Farms. Her recommendation for SkyTrek, was by far the best ziplining we have ever done.

Thanks Nancy!
