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!!

The space

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.

Guest access

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.

Very clean, lots of space inside and nice gathering area outside. The trail to the pool was fun and the waterfall was beautiful. Too bad we couldn't stay longer!

Jonathan's home was exactly what we needed. He provided a lot of good information for activities and things to do. We arrived earlier than our check in time and they quickly managed to prep the home for us. Pura Vida!

The pineapple house is a rustic house with lots of privacy. It was large enough for the six of us. We could lounge around and take the trails to explore. We bought groceries a couple of times and prepared the meals. There were plenty of pots, pans and utensils for our needs. The Wi-Fi worked great. Thank you for helping us have a great vacation.

Felt like a very authentic Costa Rican Ecolodge experience. The main lodge where we stayed was very nice, the food was great, and the property was beautiful. The people there were very nice and helpful, made us feel at home.

We received a warm welcome and a welcoming stay at Princessa de la Luna. Because the Pineapple House was refurbished, we got another room that met our expectations. We enjoyed the excursion through the associated nature reserve including the cooling waterfall and a walk through the stream. Really recommended if you stay there. The complex has many nice seats and a communal kitchen. Here you have easy contact with the friendly staff and the other guests. The view and surrounding nature is beautiful. The price-quality ratio is very good. We got value for money. The whole complex is dated here and there. There are, for example, old sofas and in the shared kitchen, everything is not new. But for those who do not mind this is highly recommended. Certainly considering the price.

Wonderfull place near La Fortuna. A car is needed as the place is 10min drive from La Fortuna. The place is really in the middle of the jungle, just near Princessa De La Luna hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the Walkman in the property is just amazing g, 2 jours of pure Dreams with William. Me also in the restaurant is great highly recommanded.

The location was beautiful and exciting, but we were disappointed by the neglected condition of the house and inaccessibility to the pool. Two of the bedrooms had no closets, the kitchen was poorly stocked and does not have hot water. The staff was helpful. We cannot honestly recommend this place.

In the kitchen yes no hot water...We will have a look at the facilities in the kitchen and make sure its all functional ......Best wishes from Wilmar and William

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 ...
