This place was great. My family of 5 stayed here for 6 nights at the end of February. The property id very private and secure (anyone trying to approach the house has to travel between Lorenzo's and Nelson's houses to get there. All the wildlife we saw on our tours were present on the property (Toucans, sloths, giant iguanas, etc....). I used the grill quite frequently, the next morning the grill was cleaned off by the owners and ready for use for the next day. The guys would place fruit out for the birds every morning (sometimes with their children). I think my favorite part of our whole trip would have been sitting on the back porch at 5:30 am with a cup of the best coffee ever and listening to the streams and birds. We did not rent a car; however, getting around was not an issue. The guys provided a cell phone for our use to call taxis, but we elected to walk to town on a lot of occasions. It is about 1 mile from the house to the center of La Fortuna. If we didn't take a taxi home form town ($4) and walked, the pool was a welcome relief once we returned. This is truly a great house and property with wonderful hosts.

Visited this place after seeing this home on Tripadvisor back in June and stayed 3 days and had a wonderful time. 3 days wasn't enough so we booked again in November and December this time for 7 days.that wasn't enough time either. Lorenzo and Nelson are the best host anyone can ask for. Property is situated between 2 small rivers the flow to the east. The sound of the river is so relaxing. You can sleep late here and not hear any sounds from traffic or neighbors. This is paradise for sure. Plenty of wildlife. Toucans are visible and close to the house. Nelson put fresh fruit out so the birds get close to the house. They also have 3 sloths on the property. If you can't find them Lorenzo with spot them out for you. The house itself is very big!! 4 bedroom 3 full bathrooms. Sleeps 12.. You can't find a place in la fortuna with this much privacy. If you wish Yolanda, Lorenzo wife, will cook for you and a great price. Taxi to La fortuna is $5.. The owners also loan you a cell phone to use why you stay so you can call around if you need something. The owners also can help with any question, tours or even arrange to have a cookout on the property. The grill area is my favorite place on property. Great for just hanging out and enjoying the views. The upstairs room has a great view of the volcano. Thank you arenal luxury paradise!!
