“spacious house and grounds, lots of birds, friendly on-site owner”
Reviewed 4 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

This house is large and has comfortable settees, comfy dining chairs with large dining table, good satellite TV with a fair number of English channels, and showers and toilets that worked well. The aircon also worked well. The kitchen is old but functional with a large new and efficient fridge-freezer. We could have done with some kitchen utensils like serving spoons and spatulas, and a few more plastic storage boxes for food, but there are plenty of very clean plates, bowls, mugs and glasses and cutlery. We found the beds rather firm.The grounds are lovely, with lots of birds and places to sit. The room at the top had great views of the distant volcano. The pool is very suited to children as it is quite shallow but is swimmable for adults. Very refreshing temperature. It is near to one of the houses, so not as private as you may wish, although the family kept a discrete distance when we were using it. The carport was a bonus, sheltering us from sun and rain.
The property is about a mile from La Fortuna The town has plenty of restaurants and shops and the drive there was easy with hardly any traffic. Would be okay to walk it but no paths or shade.
The house is on a kind of small holding and Lorenzo the owner and his brother live in houses very near to the rental house. This means they are about to help with any problems. It also means that you feel very safe.Lorenzo puts fruit in the garden to attract the birds. We saw about 15 different birds including toucans. The family do not speak English but Lorenzo is a dab hand with Google Translate on his cellphone. He and his family are very nice people. Eder runs a company in town and provides back-up. He speaks excellent English and appears very capable.

“Amazing Vacation”
Reviewed 9 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This was an amazing vacation rental. The interior was clean, well-furnished and comfortable. The exterior was very well maintained and the animal sightings were amazing!! We saw sloths, nesting toucans, boa eating a bat, dart frogs, Jesus Christ lizards, numerous birds daily on the property!! Pool was great - well maintained. We travelled with 4 adults and 5 kids and the layout was perfect.

“Be a sloth and enjoy”
Reviewed 25 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

AMAZING!!! Be a sloth...
Hang loose and enjoy the wonderful sights and sounds of nature and it's wild animals. Lorenzo the owner is very kind and excited to share this beautiful property. He pointed out sloths, placed papaya out on trees every morning to attract an array of vibrant colorful birds. We even saw a Toucan. The house is very comfortable. There is a narrow spiral staircase that would be dangerous for tiny tots but otherwise great for families with kids. The town is a close drive but maybe a little far to walk on a narrow dirt road.
Eder was our contact to help us with activities and helped us with directions on places we wanted to visit on our own. He was very helpful and made himself available by leaving us with a cell phone to call him directly If we had any questions or needed help.

“Amazing Property & Owners”
Reviewed 8 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

person found this review helpful

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.

“Truly paradise on earth”
Reviewed 4 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

people found this review helpful

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!!
