Rand was an excellent host he made sure I found the place and even met me when I was having trouble. Then, he even invited me out to dinner with him and some friends! Not to mention the clean accommodations and awe inspiring view..!! All in all my stay at lake arenal was 100% positive!
We enjoyed our stay at Lake Arenal. Rand was a great host (although we didn't actually meet) going out of his way to organise wifi for us and his neighbours were really helpful in getting us settled in.
The accommodation itself is in a safe spot with a partial view of the lake. it's a bit overlooked but all the neighbours we met were incredibly friendly. I think if we were to visit Lake Arenal again we would probably stay somewhere closer to La Fortuna as it took us over an hour and a half each way to drive to the cloud forests and hot springs which are the area's highlights. The drive was very beautiful but a bit much each day! That said Rand's place is well located for the lake and the small town nearby is walkable and has a few excellent restaurants, although they are not open every evening.
Thank you for the review and the suggestions. I will make it better for the next people.
Rand was extremely helpful and made sure we were comfortable. We had a nice fridge, hot plate, toaster oven and coffee maker. The double head shower was
great and the ceiling fans were a lifesaver as it was abnormally hot.
The location and security was the best thing about this place. We were less than a mile from one of the best resturants on this side of the lake, Las Brisas, and to the left of Las Brisas is another "comida rapida" with some of the most delicious ceviche I have ever has in Costa Rica at incredible prices. We could walk right down to the lake and the view from the unite was wonderful. Lots of bird watching from our deck.
