About this listing
For a wonderful vacation or long term living, this comfortable cabin in the jungles near Lago Arenal, in Costa Rica is available. Perfect as your home base for exploring Costa Rica, for internet working, relaxing, bird watching, or spending quality time with a loved one.
The cabin is off the beaten path, yet just 2 kilometers from shopping, restaurants, bars and the lake side park. The road is a bit rough so there are few cars and almost no noise on the property. You will hear birds, monkeys, maybe a dog, and wind chimes.
Please roam freely the acres of plants, bananas, papayas, oranges, lemons, yucca, flowers and regenerating forests. The property is surrounded by very large tracks of both pasture and open space for trekking.
The house has dedicated DSL WiFi internet (now at 4 Meg), a large bathroom with huge picture windows looking out upon the gardens, and endless hot water. The main room is your kitchen, living room, and sleeping area. The kitchen has stove, refrigerator, dishes and basic pans.
This is a perfect retreat for someone working on their computer who wishes to be alone. Our guests also use this as a base to explore Arenal Volcano, Tenorio, Monteverde, La Fortuna and other touristic destinations.
The owner lives on site and can assist with knowledge of the area and settling in. The farm has a full time gardener and you will be treated to fresh fruits in season.
We are ten minutes from Lake Arenal, Costa Rica and one hour drive to La Fortuna. The town is called Nuevo Arenal not to be confused with la Fortuna.
Guests can roam the property freely, onsite secure parking for several vehicles, eat fruit in season, bathe in the spring, watch birds, dream. Ask for anything you need.
Interaction with Guests
I enjoy interacting with guests. I try and meet each and every person on their arrival to give them a quick tour of the facilities and get acquainted.
This neighborhood is surrounded by pastures, forests and gardens. Views to Volcano Arenal and Lago Arenal are plentiful. The property has many birds and fruit trees. Very quiet yet close to town.
We have local taxis and good bus service. Walk to town or ride with the owner on his daily trips. Taxi to or from town is only $5.
Quiet. Smoking outside only. Have fun. Relax.
