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.

My family and I stayed here for 7 nights and we absolutely loved it. My husband and I were celebrating our 17 year anniversary. It's nice to be in a secure gated community. The privacy is really nice. The view when you walk out the front door everyday was amazing. We got to see toucans and all types of beautiful birds. The infinity pool was a special treat, our boys lived in the pool. The local grocery store also offers delivery. The property is within walking distance to town. We were recommended to eat at "Casa Paniagua" by the property manager Jafet and boy oh boy were we in for a treat. The food is all organic and good. The property manager Jafet was very helpful and friendly. The property has pretty much everything you need. If I could comment on what it was lacking it would the wonderful AC were so used to in the United States. Honestly, the pictures posted here don't do any justice to the true beauty of this property. We all look forward to our next stay at Casa Arco Iris. We rented a car and activities in La Fortuna are about 45 minutes drive. The locals are really nice and helpful not once did we feel unsafe.
My family recently stayed in Nuevo Arenal. The weather was perfect, the views spectacular! The house was well equipped and comfortable. Many things to do nearby and we enjoyed the local restaurants and shops, everyone we met was pleasant. The property manager was great, kind and helpful. We hope to return next year.
My husband and I stayed here for a week in one of the cabina's while Gary & Holly were in the house. It was such a beautiful place to stay with great people! Gorgeous views of the lake & mountainside from the pool. The property is beautifully landscaped & we'll manicured. Next time we come we will spend more time at the house, it is a great place to relax. Short walk to a nearby park on the lake. Very short drive into town, which has all your basic amenities. We cooked some meals at the house and enjoyed some out. I highly recommend going to Gingerbread for dinner while you're there, it's 5 minutes from the house.
We found this to be a very central location to stay for all of the excursions we did (ziplining, waterfalls, hiking at the volcano national park, Ceiba tree, hot springs, shopping). Next time we will check out the lake rentals. It would be a nice spot to go fishing, kayak or paddleboard!
As the house is all one level and has a shallow pool with steps down in, this would be a great place for children, seniors or those needing wheelchair accessibility.
There are 2 kitchens and plenty of seating areas to accommodate a large group!
I would highly recommend this property to anyone going to Costa Rica. We will be back!
We had a fantastic stay at arco iris last week. The house was well layed out for a large group with a bar kitchen and an amazing flat top gas grill in the main. The cabinas were comfortable with large bathrooms and walk in showers with oversized windows to enjoy the beauty of waking up to the amazing sounds of Costa Rican wildlife. The property itself is situated in a gated community overlooking an abundance of lush greenery and very scenic lake arenal. We enjoyed our mornings sipping coffee and taking in the abundance of bird life that never seemed to dissapoint, not to mention the infinity pool which provided tranquil relief from the suns rays. The town of Arenal which was within walking distance was very inviting and provided us everything we needed (with the exception of gas due to an update of the pumps). As for attractions we were close to many including an amazing 500 year old cieba tree and famous lake Cote both only a 10 minute drive away. We took in Arenal volcano and visited La Fortuna which was about 45 minutes away. We truly enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate returning, as a matter of fact we are trying to organize our next trip as I'm writing this review. Highly recommend arco iris for a large group or even a group of 2 if you opt for just the main house and not the cabinas. Also if your looking for a unique dining experience the Gingerbread only 10 minutes away provided us with amazing food and a terrific atmosphere.
Beautiful property, Great location and great property manager
My wife and our 4 kids stayed here over Thanksgiving and it was a great fit for our family. We were looking for a place that was a little out of the way and Arenal was perfect for us. Tyler's recommendations for activities and restaurants really made our stay here memorable. Wish we were still there.
Definitely 5 stars!
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.
