The location to this property is very convenient. You have much sightseeing to do; access to different tourist locations such as the hot springs; Monteverde region; La Fortuna; the Guanacaste area etc. Along with this you can also contact tour operators that host canopying activities, water rafting, butterfly observatories etc. A visit to the Arenal Volcano is a must!!

Nous avons passé une semaine à la Casita 8 West et avons apprécié de trouver une maison très bien équipée: douche chaude, serviettes, cuisine avec tout, vraiment tout, ce qu'il faut pour cuisiner... même pour faire de la pâtisserie! Télé, wifi, bbq, de quoi s'installer dehors...
Il est nécessaire d'avoir une voiture, et si vous en avez une, vous pouvez aller à la découverte de la région du volcan Arenal. Toutefois, il est possible de se promener à pied jusqu'au lac Arenal depuis la maison. Le village est très sécuritaire... Nous sommes ravis. Lizette est charmante et très accomodante.
We were welcomed by Lizette's mom, the owner of the house and we were very impressed by the house. Everything was brand new and in excellent shape. From the matching bedsheets to the complete kitchen appliances, plates, etc. It was a nice town and staying there for a few days made the experience of visiting that part of Costa Rica special. My children LOVED the TV and the WIFI. My husband and I loved cooking in the kitchen and relaxing in the rocking chairs on the porch.
Lizette´s house was perfect for us. The three rooms gave us plenty of space, the kitchen was fully equipped and had more than what we needed to cook well, and the living room was comfy to hang out in and watch tv. With the wind from the lake, opening the windows kept the house very cool during the day. The shower had hot water, and we were even able to use the washing machine and dryer to do our laundry. The location is perfect. The drive around the lake is amazing and La Fortuna and Volcan Arenal and an easy drive away. We also took a day trip to Monteverde, which was easy and so worth the unpaved roads. Lizette and her mom Laura were so attentive the whole time we were there. Overall, great house in a great location with great people. Next time I´m in this part of the country I will definitely stay here! Thank you Laura and Lizette!
We had a great night at La Casita! The house is very nice: fully furnished, clean, and in a quiet neighborhood. We had some difficulty finding the house from the highway in the dark and the rain, but Lizzette and her family were very patient and helpful!!
There is a grocery/supermarket close by and a wonderful restaurant with really good food. Also on the Sunday that we visited, there was a farmers market nearby.
All in all, it was a wonderful stay!
The Lopez' home near Tilaran is a great place to stay for at least part of your next Costa Rican vacation. It is clean, well equipped, comfortable, and excellently located. The location in particular is great for exploring Monte Verde (1.5 hours away), the Arenal volcano and the hot springs (1.25 hours away), and Lake Arenal (5 minutes away). The weather in Tilaran is also great. You leave behind the heat and dust of Liberia as soon as you head into the mountains and Tilaran is at just the right elevation to keep you comfortable. La Casita is also very clean and well equipped with western sensitivities in mind. I will certainly return and stay here on my next Costa Rican vacation.
The Lopez family are extremely helpful and gracious hosts. They went well beyond the normal bounds of a host to help save my vacation when my car rental cancelled my reservation because they didn't have enough cars. George drove all the way to Liberia to pick me and my family up, and even lent me his car to help me out during my stay there. I have not met better human beings than George and Laurina and I have left my Costa Rican vacation with great memories and excellent new friends. I only hope I have the opportunity to return their kindness.
Wonderful place! 3 great bedrooms, fully equipped kitchen and very clean. Lizette was great to communicate with and was so helpful. Her wonderful parents met us and and had even at our request been to the grocery store to pick up breakfast stuff for us. Can holeheartedly recommend the place if you want a place to stay when exploring the amazing region of lake arenal. Thanks Lizette!
We felt so lucky to stumble upon Lizette's home. Immaculately clean, kitchen with every gadget you could want, LAUNDRY, comfy bed... it truly felt like a home away from home.
Lizette responded promptly to emails (and likely calls/texts if we had had a phone...) and even sent over a Google map pic as we were a bit unclear about her initial directions (it's about 5km north of Tilaran... AirBnB's map showed it elsewhere). The home is on a quiet dead-end street and is a perfect place to enjoy the Tilaran, western Lake Arenal area. Highly recommended and thank you.
I believe you must live life passionately by pursuing what you like. I love to build friendly relationships and hold excellent communication skills. I enjoy reading novels with that my favorite author-Paulo Coehlo.
I have two beautiful girls that complete my life.
I love the idea of embracing my guests as if they were family-making sure they're comfortable and all their needs are met at my place.
