We had an amazing time at Hacienda Encantada! Nita and Marty were fantastic hosts, meeting us as soon as we arrived, offering us local recommendations, and even offering to make reservations for us. The local dogs and cats are all very friendly, and made our stay even more enjo…

We had a wonderful stay at Nita's house. The house was clean and the location can't be beat. We also wanted to say how wonderful her property manager Michael is! An incredibly kind person :)

It's difficult for us to say if we liked the place or not. I think the best way to review it is just say exactly what happened. Nita was very prompt at responding when I asked for a reservation. She also offered help with booking activities around the place and letting us check i…

Response from Nita:
Wow. I can only apologize for the difficulties that Apurva experienced, that are in the realm of my control. We allowed them to check in at 6:00 AM on the day of their reservation and I was not told of any problems with the house, until the next morning, when I got an email saying the water and power had gone out. They were NOT without power and water for their whole stay, but only for a few hours and that was due to some extreme weather in the area. I responded to get the backup systems activated as soon as possible. At no time did they ask me about a cancellation or a refund for their stay nor did they mention that they were wanting to check out.. As far as I was made aware, and although they had a very unusual experience during their stay, to my knowledge it was all under control. I would never be so flippant as to respond to a guest in the way that I was so loosely quoted here and you would have to read that statement in it's entire context to understand. It is true that some of the roads in Costa Rica are in terrible shape. We have tried as a community for over a year to get some work done on the main road to El Castillo, but there is no money in the Municipality for repairs at this time. This is WHY we always strongly recommend a 4x4 for our area. I will note that neither the guests before or after this guest, had any issues and they loved their stay. I feel I did the best I could under the circumstances and as far as Our Caretaker goes, we will address these issues with him promptly.

Nita and Marty were wonderful hosts. Their property manager, Juan was so helpful and kind during our stay. This home is an absolute gem, off the beaten path. Nita's reccomendations were perfect and helped us make the most of our time in the Arenal area. I would suggest future gue…

Phenomenal experience! The Encantada Guest House is super nice, with great views and scenery! Would definitely stay again if in the La Fortuna/El Castillo area. I will say, a vehicle with sufficient ground clearance is a MUST to reach this property, but that was half the fun!

The Encantada guest house was amazing! My girlfriend and I stayed in one of the bedrooms but were lucky enough to have the house to ourselves the whole time! The views of Lake Arenal and the volcano were very nice, and offered a very good place to watch sunsets and unwind after b…

We are absolutely in love with this off-the-beaten-path home. Gorgeous views, a short hike to a little creek, a huge shower with plenty of hot water and pressure, and beautiful tile and woodwork. There is everything you could possibly need to make your stay comfortable and rela…
