Description
This beautiful brand new home was custom built to take advantage of the beautiful surroundings while still offering every comfort. Enjoy views of the majestic volcano, the tranquil lake complete with wind turbines on the horizon, rolling pasture lands, and the lush rainforest. The house is modern Bali-style architecture and construction was finished in 2013. It is a combination of steel and sharp angles with natural stone and wood. The whole house is furnished with custom-made furniture and cabinets made from the most beautiful local hardwoods. The ceilings are vaulted and 20 feet high. There are two bedrooms, one with a view of the lake and mountains, the other with a view of the volcano. The bathroom has an oversize slate shower and double vanity. The kitchen is fully-equipped with new appliances, and we provide the basics - salt and pepper, paper towels, soap, etc. The living room has an oversize double sliding glass door which opens wide to give the sensation that the deck and the living room are one and the same. Without a doubt, the best feature of the house is the exotic wood bench and bar which runs along the entire length of the covered deck. Guests can sit and dangle their feet in the air with a drink or meal, and take in the majestic views below. Also offered for your enjoyment are a hot tub, a beautiful fire pit with formed-benches, and an immense grill. Play with horse-shoes, badminton, or our dartboard. Try your skills with a kite or a Frisbee. If you feel like staying in, we offer satellite TV, high-speed WiFi, a large selection of DVD’s, and board games. A delicious continental breakfast is provided daily. If you know you will be too (happily) weary to cook after a long day of sightseeing and adventures, we can provide a wholesome, home-style dinner at a reasonable cost. Plan ahead only please. A menu can be provided upon request. The house is located in a spacious gated community 10 kilometers up the mountain on a country dirt road from the town of Nuevo Arenal. The road is not always in perfect condition depending on recent rains, but is always passable. A rental car is a must. The development is secluded, yet still close to town and all the local amenities. Being higher in elevation, you will always enjoy a fresher, crisper, breezier climate than down the mountain (between 5-10 degrees difference on average). Unlike many beach areas in Costa Rica where it is always hot and humid, here you can experience a refreshing mix of sunshine and heat with rain, clouds, mist, and cooler weather. It is a perfect place to connect with nature. Our guests will enjoy the marvels of all the local wildlife right at their doorstep. The call of the 'congos' swinging through the trees, gigantic toads, a myriad of brightly colored insects and butterflies, bromeliads growing all over the trees, and exotic flowers. Bird watchers will be in heaven here overlooking the treetops at the toucans, hawks, vultures, hummingbirds, parrots and more. Our family lives on the property as well with our 3 large dogs. The two houses are separated completely and we will never interfere, but are glad to be of any assistance if needed. We also have two young horses named Daphne and Chestnut. They are friendly and sweet. Curious visitors can learn what it takes to care for them in our stable. When you venture out, we are a 15 minute drive to spelunking in the Venado Caves. La Fortuna is 45 minutes away where you can visit natural hot springs, go canopy jumping, horseback riding, four-wheeling, visit the snake and reptile zoo, indulge in a spa treatment, and do some souvenir shopping. Other day trips will take you to magical waterfalls or the crystal-clear blue water of Rio Celeste. As a bonus, our guests may feel free to load up our 2 kayaks and go down to the boat launch in town, where they can explore Lake Arenal and look for artifacts along the shorelines. The entire area around Lake Arenal is a cyclist’s heaven, with excellent roads and trails to navigate. There are so many activities to enjoy in the area, and we are happy to help book activities and recommend our favorites. Pura vida!
