This home was a delight to stay in. We spent most of our time on the outside porch enjoying the view and the absolute quiet. Home interior though was very nice with comfortable beds. Kristen went out of her way to be helpful and available if needed. Of consideration might be that most of the advertised activities are 45- 60 minutes away on a windy road which made a few of us car sick and made for a long day.
Peaceful place to relax
Amazing views of lake arenal. Great place to relax or go exploring in the nearby attractions. Kristen is a great host, well organized and hospitable. Definetley recommended.
Amazing Panoramic view from the porch
Amazing paronamic view from the porch. It was awesome to wake up in the mornings to a view of the lake and mountains and the sounds of the birds. This is exactly what we were looking for. We came with our two kids (6 and 9 years old) who enjoyed the nature and of course the wifi (ipads).
Kirsten is amazing. She helped us getting to the place at night, which was a bit challenging especially with a fog and rain. Her recommendations around the area were good. We all loved the hot springs and the waterfalls near la fortuna.
The beds have definitely been upgraded and comfortable. We all slept so good.
We would definitely come back for more to do in the area.
A relaxing and secluded getaway with great views and a few points that need attention.
We were a group of 4 and overall we had an enjoyable and relaxing stay. We enjoyed the views, the wild life and the colorful gardens. The local town of Nuevo Arenal is close by and has some great, casual places to eat with really good food (Lucky Bug, Los Platillos Voladores, Las Delicias). Ed had returned to US before we arrived, and his friend Kirsten got us settled and was helpful with a couple of questions we had during our stay. The use of the local phone was very helpful.
However there are some things that either need attention or guests need to be aware of. The beds are a disaster - this is primarily because there is no box spring under the mattress, and so the mattress collapses into the bed frame during the night. The recent renovations mentioned in the property description were not very evident and seem to be relatively minor. The kitchen is functional but needs updating, and the washing machine & drier are rusty and tired looking, but worked fine. The cleaning in the bathrooms prior to our arrival was not good and there were many examples of hair around the basins and shower. The internet was slow, but I suspect this is not so much a property problem but the capability of the local infrastructure. There were only 3 rocking chairs available rather than the stated 4. Guests need to be aware that any food crumbs/particles not cleaned up will attract ants.
As a final comment, while the views are good, they are not "one of the most spectacular in Costa Rica". With a small amount of extra attention this property would go from good to great.
Hello David and Family,
Thank you for writing a review. This is very helpful for me as I just took over Ed's property management of this particular house a couple of days before you arrived.
Right after your stay the owners arrived and we had a good look at all the details of the house. I fully agree with the points you mention and I very much appreciate you are taking the times to share your experience with us. We have blocked some time now to start working on the house to make sure all is taken care off as soon as possible.
I sincerely hope that you have enjoyed your time in our little town and wish you and your family well!
Breathtaking view, good location, but back breaking beds
If you could take a picture of the ideal view, this would be it. We enjoyed mornings and evenings sitting on the porch, overlooking the bay and watching the colorful birds fly by. The house was very clean, equipped with all the basic necessities and cutely decorated with local art.
Our only complaint was the comfort of the beds. We used all 3bedrooms and the two regular beds you could feel/hear the squeaky springs and the futon has a gap in the middle. We were staying with our three pre/teen kids who generally can sleep anywhere, but complained.
Location was 45 minutes/hr from La Fortuna and all the activities, and the town of Nuevo Arenal had some really good restaurants (we ate at Las Delicias and Gingerbread). With new beds, we would come back here in a heartbeat.
Awesome property and view!
Loved this house and property. It helped that the weather was great while we were there. But the view and the yard with flowers and toucans and other beautiful birds also was awesome! Kitchen could use a little updating or it would be a 5 plus!
