Holiday Rental House /
1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
One of Lake Arenal's nicest spots has come again available for rent. A furnished cabina/studio apartment, with small office with separate entrance.

If you like beautiful views of the lake and sunsets, and like it quiet, this is a fine place for a single person or a couple. Enjoy the spectacular wild life.

The rental price included all utilities, except Internet, and two weekly housecleanings. Laundry service available, but additional. Most of our guests travel with their own 3G hot spot, but upon letting us know in advance, we can install a 3G router.

This beautiful detached cabina sits on its own not visible from the access road and with sweeping views of Lake Arenal and the tropical rain forest jungle, as well as the hills of Monteverde beyond. You can often wake up to the sound of monkeys and toucans, then take a pleasant walk...

Oliver was great to work with right from the start, he responded very timely to all our emails answered our questions and made great recommendations for visiting Costa Rica. Unfortunately we were not able to stay due to fact we were flying standby and all the flights were full. Oliver graciously refunded us via paypal minus a cleaning fee which was more than reasonable. I look forward to visiting costa rica and staying at Oliver's place on my next vacation. I would definatly recommend staying with Oliver not only because of his charming place off the beaten path but because of his honesty, communication ability and that he was so wonderful to work with. Safe Travels and enjoy- cheers more

Having traveled through most of Costa Rica in the past two months, and having stayed in many places, I'm pleased to say that the time I spent in the Lake Arenal area was as good as any in the country. More specifically, my wife and I had the pleasure of meeting Oliver Duex and subsequently renting a cottage from him which overlooked the lake and the mountains beyond. Each morning we would wake to the sounds of the birds, have breakfast while watching the sun light up the lake, and gauge the breeze by the wind turbines on the distant ridge. If you like large arched windows, Spanish tiled floors, and beautifully carved wooden doors portraying Toucans and Volcanoes, this might be the place for you. The patina of age that lends charm to this dwelling was complimented by the conscientious endeavors of Oliver to blend workability with beauty. It was quiet and peaceful. And the location was a perfect spot from which to explore the surrounding area. So if you're looking for that old... more
