About this listing
The property is centrally located about a 15 minute drive from La Fortuna and half that to a supermarket. There are restaurants close by but we are separate from our neighbors and gated. We are at the top of a small rise so usually get a slight breeze from the Atlantic side keeping the property shaded and cool. We only rent to one group at a time so there is a strong feeling of togetherness in a park-like setting. Breakfast is always included, as is daily cleaning
This beautiful property includes a fully equipped house with a direct view of the volcano. It is located a ten-minute drive away from La Fortuna which is located in the heart and center of Costa Rica and close to many of the top ten tourist attractions and activities, which includes river rafting and zipcording. Lake Arenal is also not far away at all as well as Costa Rica's national park.
The property comes with a fully furnished house, with a fully equipped kitchen, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, dining area, wrap around deck and a patio. The property is also includes a cabina, which sleeps up to four, has it's own entrance and bathroom. This property is perfect for small families traveling together or a large group of people.
All guests staying at Posada Colonial have full access to WiFi or have the option of direct access, satellite television, laundry room, and phone access.
This is the perfect spot to experience all Costa Rica has to offer, where you can spend the day being awed by the sights and experiences and then come home to a relaxing private area away from it all.
Guests can wander about the property at their will, exploring the hiking trail to the Rio La Palma at the bottom of the property and many plants and flowers which attract so many birds and butterflies. We only rent to one couple, family or group at a time so it is always quiet and personal.
Interaction with guests
I live on the property next door so am always available but only on call when needed. When invited I'll join our guests for coffee as many are curious about life in Costa Rica, its culture, and my experience. Miriam, our cook/housekeeper has been here since 1989 and always get five stars. She is just excellent and despite the glowing reviews always removes any skepticism after serving breakfast on the first day.
Other things to note
We are about 20 minutes to Lake Arenal and the same to the entrance to Arenal Volcano National Park. Most tour companies will provide transportation for our guests to go rafting, caving, zip lining, etc.

I'm a Canadian who's been living in one of the loveliest areas of the world for over 20 years. During that time Mireya (Hostess/Concierge), Miriam (cook extraordinaire/ cleaner) and myself have been able to meet marvelous people from all over the world. We always get five stars and that is largely because of the home, the natural setting of the place and the obvious warmth of both Miriam and Mireya. I don't know where we could ever achieve greater job satisfaction.
