Interaction with Guests
About me?, Dogs lover (puddle style... maybe not a manly breed, but well guys... nobody can be perfect... just kidding).
I LOVE tourism and that's why I've been working in this industry for over than 10 years, so I pretty much know what people is looking for, when we talk about service, lodging, activities, etc.
I guarantee you will feel that you arrived to warm place, pretty similar to a piece of your home :). That's my goal with every guest.
Second promise :) is: I will be ALWAYS available for you and when I say always it means 24/7. If you have any question, doubt, inconvenient, whatever you might think that I can help you, please do not hesitate to let me know.
Once the reservation is confirmed, I will also send you a document with more address details and recommendations about where to eat, what to do, etc.
As I mentioned before, the neighborhood is safe as well as quiet (family area). As safe as you can walk at midnight without any concern (you can also confirm it in many past reviews from clients).
The neighbors are also a plus. Most of them are families and they work for restaurants, hotels, tour operators. Some of them speak fluid English and some not. Pretty calm and quiet people at night, but if you try to talk to some of them, they are kind people.
Public transportation gets to La Fortuna from San José or Liberia, but if you want a more comfortable ams faster arrive, you can book a shuttle service (Interbus, Ride CR, Montezuma Expeditions, Desafío Adventure and Gray Line are wonderful companies and most of them have connections all over the country).
There are also, flights landing to El Tanque, which is located 20 minutes away from La Fortuna (Sansa and Nature Air are the local airline companies).
If you are coming from Monteverde and you are not renting s car, the cheapest and easiest way to get to La Fortuna it is booking a Jeep-boat-Jeep through the Arenal Lake (there are several company options in the Internet).
Most of the transportation companies won't drop you off directly to the apartment, because they can do it just at hotel receptions, but Arenal Rabfer Hotel is located just 200mts from the apartment, so you can choose this hotel as drop off place.
There are only two house rules:
One: Don't smoke inside, there is plenty space outside for that.
Second: PURA VIDA!! And enjoy as much as you can :)
Extremely safe neighborhood for three girls, so safe in fact one left the keys to our car in the driver side door all morning and it was still there!
Apt is just as described and a/c and water (heated) worked perfect. Extremely walkable to the cute town of La Fortuna (highly recommend "my coffee and "soda visquez").
Roy was extremely helpful. We had never been to Costa Rica nor used Air BnB before and he left detailed instructions and had great suggestions on things to do.
Would totally stay here again. (Sorry for all the "extremely"s but that's the best word to describe.)
Hi Tricia, thank you so much for your comment, I'm glad to know that you enjoyed your stay and that you felt safe ( it's a really quite and safe neighborhood, as you discovered).
You are welcome anytime you want :) enjoy your first (I hope not the last) trip though Costa Rica.
This apartment is well equipped and cozy. It's in a safe neighborhood. If you are lucky, the neighborhood dogs will come visit. We wished we could have had more than one night here. Thanks so much!
The apartment was nice, clean, and well-equipped. Quiet little back porch area. The location was just a small walk from the center of town, nice to be away a bit from the hustle and bustle. Wifi was good too. Roy was very kind and prompt to reply to questions about the apartment and the area. Would recommend.
The flat was nice, clean and well located, 5mn walk from the center. I do recommand to stay at roy place if you come at La Fortuna
Great place! I was surprised by how easy cooking was because the kitchen already had everything we needed including rice cooker, and coffee. There was plenty of supplies to make a stay for 5 people comfortable. The back patio area was also very nice allowing for some outside air. The place was very clean, neighborhood was safe and quiet, and it was a short walk to the closest mini super market, and to downtown Arenal.
Roy's place was very clean, and while we never met Roy, his communications were excellent. We especially appreciated the video showing the location of his place. This apartment is a short walk to the small city of La Fortuna, but it also has farm animals, including roosters nearby. Charming, but you might consider bringing your earplugs.
Thank you Catherine and I'm sorry about the rooster. I a, going to talk to the neighbor and I'm going to let him know that he has to take care of it, specially in the morning when people are still sleeping. Normally the rooster is pretty much away from the properties but some times it just show up. A good option if you want to wake up pretty early and to stat to explore the vilcano area, but unfortunately not good ir you have a light sleep. Anyway I'm going to keep an eye on this situation, or I can invite you for dinner and I can cook a delicious rooster soup :) (just kidding)
Very smooth experience. Roy was always right there whenever we needed him. Answered all our questions and concerns. Amazing advice for what to do in the area. Overall a great few nights in la Fortuna.
