Our home

New home in a safe , gated community on the beautiful shores of Costa Rica's Lake Arenal.
So isolated, so quiet , so relaxing , so beautiful........not to mention the cool and often rainy weather.....Watch beautiful birds right from the front porch or upstairs balcony.....fantastic spot to have your morning Costa Rican coffee.
The house features 2 identical bedrooms (upper and lower) and 2 identical bathrooms (upper and lower) a 1/2 bath on the lower floor. The set up is excellent for two families traveling together , giving 2 very separate and private bedrooms. Also is very accommodating for a large family.... the upstairs has 1 queen bed and a twin...........the lower bedroom has 1 queen bed. The living room sofa also folds out into a bed.......and there is a double size inflatable air mattress for additional guests..... for some adventurous kid to sleep outside on the porch.. The bedrooms both are complete with identical walk in closets....the bathrooms both have double sinks , Jacuzzi tubes and bidets. The kitchen is equipped with new Frigidaire appliances including a convection oven. Living room/dining and bedrooms have quiet ceiling fans.
There is a 55" TV in the living room and a small TV in the upstairs bedroom. Both TVs are connected to SKY TV and have numerous stations in both English and Spanish. The living room TV is equipped with a DVD player with approx 200 DVDs to choose from.
Wireless WiFi in the living room and upstairs bedroom.

There is a large community swimming pool and 2 tennis covered and one outside.
The community itself is occupied by American/Europeans and has about 12 habitations......and is mostly occupied year round....(Google "Rainbowbayestates,Arenal for more info and photos.
Our house is the highest property in the estates so it has good views of the lake and Rainbow Bay.....the private boat dock is perfect for swimming. (72 degree clean water) or fishing (Guapote bass and TIlapia).
The most fantastic amenities about our home ? tranquility and natural beauty.......very relaxing. The tropical plants and flowers (and bananas) are everywhere.
It is about an hour and 45 mins drive from LIberia Airport and 3 hours from San Jose Airport.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Isolated yet 2 KMs from the little town of Nuevo Arenal..........Grocery store and very good restaurants (many are American owned).
We are about 35/40 mins away from the famous Tabacon thermal spa (plus several others) and the fun adventure town of La Fortuna, where you will find :Zip lines, horseback riding, river rafting ,quad rentals and tours etc. Etc...
There are several Kayak and wind surfing board rentals near the house (Lake Arenal is a world class wind surfing lake.) fishing and sightseeing tours.
The wonderful cloud forest park of Monteverde is on the other side of the lake and probably an hour and a half drive away.
Arenal volcano is just 30 mins away....lots of hiking and wildlife watching
This is our second home so the available dates are somewhat open. This year (2016) We are looking to travel for about 10 days during Christmas time.
