“Great Place to Stay!”
Reviewed 22 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017
1
person found this review helpful

Me and my extended family (9 people) stayed here for 3 nights before boarding a Costa Rica cruise. This house has it all!

Lorenzo (property owner), Eder (property manager), and Gilbert (driver) couldn't have been better hosts!

The house is kinda out of the way, but we loved it that way. There are two streams, a large yard full of trees, a pool, and barbecue area. The walk to town is probably about 20 minutes. The area is beautiful!

Eder also arranged our transportation to / from the airport (San Jose). We hired that same driver (Gilbert) for some day trips on our own at a predetermined daily rate.

I just can't say enough about all of these guys! First rate. Top notch. Great experience.

“Exceptional”
Reviewed 23 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Eder and Allen were wonderful guides to the area, their suggestions we spot on every time and they made it all easy. Lorenzo's house, is a wonderful place. It has everything you need and is very well kept. His family is kind and helpful and it was our pleasure spending time with them, our kids especially enjoyed playing and exploring the beautiful property with his children.

“Fantastic house and great location”
Reviewed 3 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We enjoyed our stay at the house very much. In fact, we spent 2 weeks traveling around Costa Rica and Lorenzo's house was our favorite. Lorenzo is very nice, was always around to assist us or answer questions. He went out of his way to make sure our stay was memorable. We will definitely want to stay at Arenal Luxury Paradise again. We highly recommend this home for anyone that is traveling to La Fortuna.

“Wonderful weekend in La Fortuna surround of nature and beautiful people.”
Reviewed 9 November 2016 for a stay in October 2015

person found this review helpful

We spent a wonderful weekend in La Fortuna surround of nature and beautiful people. I would recommend it for those that love nature, adventure and want to have a different vacation trip. The adventure started when I had a visit from a client and his family from US and they told me that they would like to visit La Fortuna but they want something different not like a hotel; so I found this house in VRBO and I got in touch with Eder Cruz (which is the host of the house) and he help us with the logistics, tours, hot springs options and restaurant recommendations; he has a lot of experience working with tourism and he knows La Fortuna very well so he is an excellent point of contact for questions and make your vacation more easy. Location: the house is about 1.5 kilometer from La Fortuna center, where you can find a lot of different places to buy food, groceries and souvenirs. If you like to walk or jog to La Fortuna you can do it without any problem and it’s secure. Property: is surround by two small rivers, plants and a lot of trees, inside of it you can fish by the river, see toucans, sloths and lot of birds. The house is private, secure, and comfortable; also it has everything you need (pool, air conditioning in every room, Wi-Fi and TV), one of our favorite things was that we went to bed hearing the river which is very relaxing. For those that loves BBQ, next to the house there is a place where you can do you BBQ and have a small party without making noise for those that want to rest in the house. Also, we had the opportunity to meet the owners (Lorenzo y Nelson) of the house and everybody was impressed because they are very accessible people and very kind; they really represent the Costa Rican that loves to work in agriculture and livestock. They do not speak much English but for them there are no language barriers and they do a small tour about the sugar cane (juice extraction and other products). My client and his family had an wonderful weekend in La Fortuna and I very pleased for that. Thanks to Eder, Lorenzo and Nelson...

“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”

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.
