About this listing
Costa Rica's northern highlands is a blend of mountainous valleys, tropical rainforest and hilly pasturelands that roll into the distance. It offers a tropical climate in the day while the high altitudes also provides cooler evening temperatures.
Casa Linda is a two bedroom home, with two full bathrooms, and an open concept living area. It is situated on more than a half an acre, with many fruit trees and a wide variety of birds and the perfect climate that does not require air-conditioning.
Fully equipped kitchen.
There are two patios with comfortable furniture: the covered lower patio offers views of the lake and the long line of wind-powered generators far on the north-western ridge of Lake Arenal. From the upper patio one can experience the most exquisite sunsets as the sun slips over the horizon and to look upon the long deep valleys.
Although Casa Linda edges the little village of Vista Lago one feels completely alone amid the well developed gardens.
Due to the high altitude Casa Linda is relatively bug-free.
Guests will have FULL access to the residence. Water, provided by the municipality, is safe to drink straight from the tap. The home also has a washer-spin dryer for your laundry needs.
