Great place for a large group. A bit far from Arenal, but we knew that and didn't mind the drive. The house was exactly as described, 7 bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. Plenty of common space to gather. The view of the lake and mountains was amazing. It also has a nice pool that the kids enjoyed. Breakfast was good, especially the fruit smoothie. Be aware that the drive there at night is a bit scary with the winding roads. I highly recommend this house. We will stay there again if we ever decide to go back to that area.

My husband and I have been traveling for about 6 months and this was by far the best value and truly exceeded our expectations. The VIEWS are STUNNING! A great piece of paradise. The rooms were nicely appointed, very clean and spacious. This is a great house for a large group I think he can host up to 16 people. We always had lots of hot water and good water pressure (a rarity in Costa Rica), also excellent wifi. There is an indoor pool and jacuzzi as well. Every morning we woke up to a grand breakfast! And everything was delicious!!! (see pics in his ad...actual meals!) Patrick had great recommendations for dinners and excursions as well. That said we truly enjoyed being at the house and just relaxing on the terrace. You will need a 4x4 to get to the location, but it is totally worth it. Thanks Patrick and Marjeny for the excellent service.

Amazing luxurious house. Amazing views. This house is huge and can easily accommodate a large number of people and the more people you have the more cost effective it would be per person of course. The stay included a maid service and a top notch delicious breakfast made every morning by Peters wife. The location is pretty remote and it is rather far (45 min to 1 hour) away from the Volcano and from La Fortuna, which was slightly inconvenient. The lake is nearby, but there isn't a lot of lake access and there weren't many fun activities to do on the lake anyways it seemed like. There was a soda restaurant close by were you could sign up for a horse ride, which seemed like it would be fun. My recommendation is that if being by the Volcano and La Fortune is a priority it might make sense to look outside of airbnb at the resorts and spas that are in those areas. This would be a multi million dollar house in the states and because of that it was a good deal for the price and for that reason I really liked staying here.

Hi , I moved to Costa Rica in 2000 with the idea to build a sustainable, family friendly retreat for people of all ages and abilities. Since opening in 2003 myself and my team have hosted hundreds of groups, totaling thousands of people and introduced them to the wonders of this beautiful country, it's flora, fauna, biodiversity, incredible people and breathtaking landscapes. We have also worked hard in giving back to the local community, improving the local schools, partaking in many local charitable and empowerment (no interest microloans) activities and providing ongoing education and advancement to our employees and their families. In my spare time I enjoy aquaponic gardening, conventional organic gardening, painting, reading, cooking ( I am your chef for the optional evening meal ), home distilling, small scale chicken farming, alternative energy research and development, all sorts of old timey skills and things that make us more self reliant and spending time with my four wonderful children, who are the light of my life. I am a Libertarian with a strong sense of do what you will as long as it hurts no other.
Pura Vida,
