The space
****CORONAVIRUS SAFE: We will provide hand soap, toilet paper and alcohol gel. The house is properly desinfected before your check in ****


This is a Costa Rican rancho located in a secluded neighborhood of La Fortuna yet close to everything you might need (supermarkets, farmacies, banks, etc.) only 15 MINS DRIVE from downtown and main touristic attractions, giving you the opportunity to experience the authentic Tico lifestyle. The property counts with a small cozy bedroom equipped with A/C, Closet, Cable TV, free WiFi and bathroom with hot water. There is a large outdoor kitchen fully equipped: gas stove, mini oven, refrigerator, microwave, rice cooker, coffee maker, plates, cups, etc, and of course a barbecue area. A washer machine is available for you when having long stays. A private pool with a waterfall is ready for your enjoyment. Tap water is potable. There are some free games for your entertainment (foosball, Jenga, etc.) The bedroom can accommodate two people but, you can come with friends or family, all you need is bringing a camping tent to let them camp outside the room but under a roof (any additional persona after 3 people will pay $10). The rancho and pool are surrounded by a forested area full of beautiful plants and trees, the Arenal Volcano can be seen from the property, also some animals could be spotted (birds, garrobos, sloths, iguanas, etc.) We keep renovating the place and we strive to make your stay with us to be a memorable one. We will provide you a digital guidebook via email once you booked with us to help you plan your trip to La Fortuna. Check the reviews given by our previous visitors and see why this is the most convenient offer in the zone, you will get exactly what we have described and shown on our pictures, be cautious about other properties in the same zone that are not this honest. Looking forward to hosting you! Pura Vida!

Guest access
The entire property is available for our guests, yes all of it. NO COMMOM AREAS TO SHARE. You can use the games we left and our beautiful pool just for you. There is plenty of free parking space inside.

Other things to note
We have temporarily suspended our breakfast, lunch or dinner services for now while the pandemic is active, but basic cooking freebies (tea, oil, coffee, sugar, salt, pepper, etc) will be available for you to prepare your own dishes.

You will find everything clean and tidy, our amazing maids will ensure to leave you everything ready for you. However, during your stay there's no cleaning service unless you request it, it has an additional cost of $10 per service, but take into consideration that we will facilitate enough bed linens, pillows and towels for you throughout the length of your stay. A tourist guidebook with recommended places to visit (tourist attractions, supermarkets, restaurants, etc.) will be available for you inside the bedroom, we'll send a digital copy to you via email to help you plan your trip to La Fortuna. Keep in mind that some gardening maintenance in the surroundings may occur during your stay. Charcoal for the grill and soap for washing clothes are not included in our fare but you can easily get some from nearby supermarkets at a low cost. You will have a net to clean the pool water if needed, but sometimes we might need our pool guy to run some cleaning tasks, we will communicate you if he is coming. We rely on you, that's why we are confident of providing you with all the necessary to make you feel at home and that you will take good care of everything. Yes, partying is allowed but put the volume down after 10 pm to respect the neighbors, there is a Bluetooth radio as a plus benefit. We are giving you a very convenient self-check-in/out so you don't have to worry about coming in late. All we ask is that send us a confirmation message when you check in and when you check out. Check-in starts at 2 pm, and Check-Out is 12 pm (noon) but depending on availability your Check Out can be extended for free. Do not hesitate to ask any questions, we have previously prepared "video tutorials" to demo how to use the house appliances.

Ensure to DOWNLOAD LA FORTUNA map from Google Maps prior to starting your trip, so you can navigate offline and Google to show you accurate directions while driving. Open Google Maps app on your cellphone, open the menu and select "Offline Maps".

THIS HOUSE IS NOT LOCATED DOWNTOWN, it is located 15 mins drive from downtown and there is some dirty/ballast road to ride (about 5 mins) but it is in good conditions. We really appreciate to not rate us based on the Costa Rican roads, instead focused on the actual service we have provided to you. Keep in mind that dirty roads are very common in rural areas in Costa Rica.

***About WI-FI***
If you are planning to visit us for work purposes, keep in mind that the WiFi is not the fastest, this house is meant for leisure and relaxation. Our Wi-Fi speed is 5 MB download and 1 MB upload. It is enough for sending messages, watching short videos, sending images and other types of not heavy work but, if you require a high speed internet for more complex tasks that require to transfer lots of data, we cannot provide it, unfortunately such type of service is not available in the the zone.
