Found in the grounds of a tropical park near La Fortuna, Pineapple Houes is a typical local style house with three beds, bath, living room terrace and a spacious rancho. Ideal for groups 6/8 people or couples. An adventurous unique experience!!
Pineapple house is a rustic, 3 bedroom lodge with a kitchen (cooker, rice cooker, coffee maker, toaster, juicer, pots and pans, basic condiments) and shower room. In the main living area is a computer, wireless internet and a television. There's a large veranda with seating and steps down into a large covered ranch with more seating and a small barbecue. The house is next to the main entrance and perched on the edge of a slope, with views over the canopy. From here, there are 8 miles of trails leading to the main house, swimming pool a river and a waterfall. There are more than 250 types of birds (Currently 6/8 Collared Aracari visiting us for breakfast each day) and other incredible wildlife, an enormous variety of plants and fruits and a wonderful view of the Arenal Volcano.
This is a private place although easy access to La Fortuna $10 in taxi or 12 minutes by car. We offer local authentic family style food, breakfast, lunch and dinner by prior request. There's a laundry service and help with tours and activities. Options are best discussed here as there are many, and the weather can change quickly.
Other things to note
It is advisable to bring a torch for navigating the paths after dark and a map of the local area for navigation.
There are no rules as such, however, we expect guests to look after the house as they would at home and keep an element of tidiness.

I left England when was 18 and hitch-hiked through Europe,Africa to India overland which was a life forming experience,. I left with about $100 and returned 2 yrs later ..I had little money I stayed with local people ,or hostels or slept rough whatever I needed to do. Later as a professional investment consultant I have lived in Hotels throughout Latin America for nearly 20 years. I can tell you the best way to travel is not always in Hotels ...experience living and sharing with the local way of life ,with real people it is a far richer more rewarding experience. I believe in the concept of integrated tourism this is what we offer it is a much better way to travel ...
