  • We were honoured to be the first people to stay in this perfect studio. The studio is spacious and has EVERYTHING you need, from a big shower to lots of storage space, from thoughtful decorations to all cooking equipment you could need. There is an oven, slow cooker, blender, toaster, coffee maker! One of our best Airbnb’s after 7 months of travelling. The location is also great, close to the lake, hot springs, waterfalls. We ended up staying longer!

  • We had a fantastic stay with Heilyn in Nuevo Arenal! The place is gorgeous, super clean, and perfectly outfitted with the most comfortable bed that we slept on for our entire trip. They were fantastic hosts and really took care of us and made sure we had everything that we needed. We were glad to be able to park our car in a spot off the street and the place is an easy five minute walk to downtown and the closest restaurants. I would happily recommend this place to any travelers passing through the area.

    Upstairs master bedroom we use ourselves when not having guests. Beautiful view of the lake and volcano. Shared bathroom with spacious room listing.
    This is a 4 bedroom home, three bedrooms open for use by our guests. Rest of the home is shared with Bill and I as we live here and an other guests present.
    In a neighborhood of Tico and Gringo homes near Lake Arenal.
  • Nic is an angel amongst men! I have honestly never met a kinder more caring soul on Earth than Nic. As a host he is in a league of his own. He went out of his way to welcome me into his home by picking me up from La Fortuna during the whole Corona virus crisis and he did everything to make my trip a joy from being a local tour guide, to showing me Rio Celeste and taking me to the beach in Tamarindo, to helping me set up horseback riding (which I don't recommend locally in Nuevo Arenal), to sharing restaurant recommendations ( I would avoid Butterfly but definitely go to the Italian restaurant - best homemade pasta I have ever eaten anywhere!). I felt like a queen in the king size bed and the view from the balcony was breathtaking - I could even watch the sunrise from bed! If you like to sleep in the dark then bring your own eye mask. Everything about my stay felt otherworldly - it was the best airbnb experience I have ever had. Thank you for EVERYTHING Nic! <3 I feel like family :)

  • We had such a great stay here that we decided to extend our stay! Nic is a great host, very friendly and helpful. We hope to return sometime.

    Greg2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at Nic’s place. He was very welcoming and accommodating. He made delicious breakfast and always made sure we were making the best of our time at Casa Tortuguero. Will definitely be recommending to friends and family and hope to return sometime!

    Greg2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Bar none...this is THE best Air BNB in my experience of extensive traveling. The hosts make you feel like friends and family. The property is beautiful with fantastic views of Lake Arenal, landscape area's and AMAZING Costa Rica wildlife. If you ever get to this area, there is no better place to stay. Seriously....stay here. AMAZING!

    Will2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • A warm welcome home in Paradise. This is how I would discripe Casa Turtugerro. Nic and Bill are the best hosts you can imagine. They. An help you with everything you need. The house is stylish en the bed is comfortable. Breakfast super! Beautyful location too. You can see all kinds of birds and also howler monkeys from the garden. Best accomodation I stayed at my holiday in Panama & Costa Rica

    Jeroen2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Nic’s home was by far the most beautiful combination of home and nature during our stay in Costa Rica. Saw the most birds at this site. The room was like a house of its own and Nic is great about welcoming guests in all common spaces. Breakfast was great and Nic was the sweetest. Highly recommend you stay at this location. Waste no time searching elsewhere.

    Alex2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Nic's place is AMAZING! We have been in Costa Rica for 3 weeks and this is, by far, the best place we have stayed in. Firstly, Nic's wonderful hospitality. We were welcomed into his home as if we were long lost friends. Inviting us to use his home as our own. He made us delicious coffee and home made cookies. Secondly the huge ensuite room overlooking the lake. There is a verandah outside the room from which we enjoyed the lake, mountain and garden views. Breakfast in the morning was also a delight including home made bread, fruit juice and home made jam as well as scrambled eggs and fried potatoes. Delicious. This is a real gem of a place.

    Hello! We are Juan and Karla! Juan is the one who is mostly at home, works restoring cars and I am a manicurist! We love sharing our house and the beautiful view it has of the Lake! All around here is magical, many places to visit and explore. People around are farmers, so everybody is very nice and helpful. Also, they have a high sence of animal wildlife conservation; if you see another vehicle with hazard lights on, it might mean that some local animals is crossing the street.

  • Juan and Teresita are wonderful hosts! The place is beautiful up on the hill with views of the lake and waking up to the sounds of colorful birds all around you is such a treat!!

    Kelsey2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • The house was a lovely retreat stop in the middle of our Costa Rica trip. Juan was a thoughtful host with quick communication and his mother was kind and thoughtful, bringing us tea and making us a full breakfast in the morning. The view is outstanding! Highly recommended

    Kim2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • We were totally bowled over by Juan’s hospitality. He made us so welcome in his home. Breakfast watching birds swoop in we’re entertaining and delicious. His suggestions re what to do were perfect. Highly recommended.

    Sophie2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Loved our stay here! Juan was Very quick to answer any questions we had and give us local tips. The room, view and location were all perfect.

    Caroline2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • This was a once in a lifetime view. Plus, Juan is so warm and welcoming. Where else can you wake up to a backyard full of the most amazing tropical birds, and a delicious breakfast? I never wanted to leave.

    Penny2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Woooow, the view is absolutely breathtaking! And the place is located in a wonderful area among nature and animals. We saw beautiful birds everyday! Juan is so caring and loving, we loved staying here. We will defenetively come back next time we are in Costa Rica. If you love nature, do not hesitate this is a little gem! Thanks a lot Juan for such a nice time! :)

    Shila & Volkan2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay with Juan was a highlight of our travels. Juan is so warm and inviting and the room is so lovely, with amazing views. They really helped us with great tips for local restaurants and sight seeing. I was so grateful that Juan feeds the birds every morning so we could watch all the beautiful exotic birds while we ate breakfast and watched the sunset over the lake.

    Miriah2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • This place was amazing! We stayed with Juan and his mother Teresita, who were so kind and welcoming. Teresita made us delicious breakfast every morning and they gave us fantastic suggestions on what to do and where to eat in the area. The house is on a hill above lake arenal and the views are incredible! We saw amazing wildlife too - toucans and other colorful birds. I would recommend renting a car because this place is a bit far from where most of the activities are around la fortuna but being away from the tourism center is well worth it. Also, you can access the Tenorio National Park from the west side of the lake where this house is which we did this and had a really wonderful time! The drive there is an experience in and of itself. ❤️

    Nuevo Arenal, Guanacaste Province, Costa Rica

    Enjoy a cozy off-the-grid haven at this home in the mountains overlooking Lake Arenal. Located far away from neighbors, cities, electricity and internet, you can disconnect completely and fully experience the surrounding nature and peace. The land is planted as a permaculture food forest filled with fruits, perennial greens, tropical roots, palms, and medicinal/functional plants. Privacy, abundant nature, organic food, and spring water make this an ideal place for rejuvenation and reflection.
    The home is made of reforested wood and does not contain any EMF's. Each room contains a light bulb with an individual solar panel. The front porch area is the perfect space for sharing meals and at the same time be protected from the elements. The bedroom upstairs has a spectacular view and is very well ventilated with fresh cool air for deep comfortable sleep. You will have ultimate privacy in this space, there are no houses or neighbors in view. The organic farm is surrounded by pastureland. It is important to know that all water arrives to the house at a comfortable fresh temperature. There are no road signs in this area of Costa Rica. It is important that we have contact with the guests and that they understand the exact directions and meet us at the pharmacy in downtown Nuevo Arenal to be led to the property. It is important to have a 4x4 car to access the property.
    The farm is located on a large privately owned property by the same family. It is very private and surrounded by a private reserve forest.
  • Simple yet amazing perfect to get away from people and enjoy a bit of nature.

    Ben2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay here. It was so secluded and tranquil. We cooked dinner one night and we had everything we needed. It was clean and well maintained. The description Rodolfo gives is accurate and his communication was excellent. Beautiful view upon waking every morning. Just make sure you bring battery packs to recharge phones.

    Michelle2019-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful place alone in the middle of nature. Quality construction that allows to live in contact with the songs of the birds without any sound of civilization to sleep in a comfortable place. Rodolfo has a beautiful garden that he introduced us. Way well in line with the description which requires a 4/4. An incredible place to discover absolutely by taking the time to arrive early to have time to savor

    Marie2019-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • It was just PERFECT !! The photos do not represent the magic of this place. We would have liked to stay more than one night in this paradise. I recommend it to everyone!! Bananas and blackberries upon arrival, breathtaking views and very hospitable hosts !!

    Justine2019-05-01T00:00:00Z
  • What can I say... this place was one of the most remote feeling, yet accessible and comfortable places I've ever stayed. The organic farm is tucked away on a hillside overlooking Lake Arenal. You are surrounded by beautiful views, wildlife, and plants the whole way. There were never any issues with too many bugs, and the weather was fantastic. Since you are on the mountain, you get cool air without feeling too humid yet you are still in the rainforest. It is a perfect combination. When we arrived, Rodolfo helped us get settled, showed us around, and left us a tray of fresh blackberries growing right outside the house. He and Sarah both had great recommendations for activities and food in the area (there are delicious local Sodas around - you have to try their different Casados, or plates). There are also several supermarkets and a gas station just 20 mins from the house. Arenal Volcano Park and Tenorio Park are both less than 2 hrs drive from the house making it a perfect middle point if you want to really get the most out of the area. It is very romantic for a couple but would also be perfect for some friends. Just be sure to respect the space! 4X4 vehicle needed to access the house, but the drive up the mountain is beautiful. Please control your speed on the dirt road leading to the house so you don't kick too much dust up - you are driving through a family neighborhood!

    Charles2019-04-20T00:00:00Z
  • An unlikely and magical place on an organic farm. We were very well received by Rodolfo and his family. We had a great time with them. The house is beautiful, surrounded by nature with a garden of fruits and herbs that Rodolfo will be happy to introduce. Ideal to relax.

    Émilie2019-04-16T00:00:00Z
  • I would recommend this place to anyone. The host were very sweet. Beautiful view. Amazing time there

    Marc2019-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • I absolutely adore Rodolfos place. Lovely simple space- everything you need for a quiet retreat. GORGEOUS view. If you stay make sure to be there to watch the sunset. This place is perfect for those looking to get to a quiet beautiful space in nature, away from people and cities. It is a very good place to be inspired, and to relax and unwind. I wanted to stay for two more days at least. They have a yoga mat and hammock to use, comfortable bed and pillows, excellent touches on the furnishings. Make sure you have a sturdy vehicle, the last road to the space you need to take slowly. Solar lights at night (which I love), but that is it. Bring food you don’t have to refrigerate. This place is worth the effort to get there, and I will be back! <3

    Kristina2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place, nice location on the ocean. A 4x4 would be more suitable than a car.

    Jevgenijs2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • The house was amazing and the pictures don’t do it justice. The view was insanely beautiful and the house as a whole was fantastic. Tyler was extremely knowledgeable about the area and helped us out a ton with great recommendations and discounts on white water rafting. Not only did Tyler recommend the best restaurants in the area but he even gave us specific meals to get. His tastes were absolutely on point and I would stay at any place that these guys ran or suggested. They should be upgraded to super hosts immediately.

    Blake2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Michael's place will blow your mind! It is massive and so so beautiful. There are 2 levels which is awesome because you can bring a few friends or family and have your own space. The bathrooms are out of this world. The decor is awesome. The price is fair, in my opinion, as the cost to stay at a resort or hotel is much higher. The beds are quite comfortable which is always something I look for when reading reviews in hopes of booking an airbnb. Getting up the driveway I so recommend having a 4WD as it is pretty steep. The house is about an hour away from la Fortuna which is one of the bigger places with available tours/things to do. After a long day of driving or hiking it was nice to come home and get into the hottub! Oh and there was a fire stick with each TV, I prefer background noise when I fall asleep and the Spanish channels at other places weren't doing the trick - this made me feel more at home! Definitely would recommend! Absolutely would come back not only to Michael's home but Costa Rica as well! You will not be disappointed in the least!

    Amanda2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • 10 out of 10! Extremely satisfied with the home and it’s location. If considering this home look no further and book it!

    Julio2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful House!! I wanted to buy it!! The architecture is amazing. Love the bathrooms!! House was very clean! Host was amazing. He went out of his way to help us out if a bind. Great hospitality!!

    Josh2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • This by far has been the most beautiful place I’ve stayed in and I travel a lot. The photos don’t do the the house justice. It’s incredible in person and spacious. Michael was so thoughtful and attentive and helped us whenever we needed it. I would 10/10 recommend to stay here.

    Destiny2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • This is a beautiful retreat and stunning home! The upstairs is lovely to relax in and to sit on the large deck or in the hot tub. The morning/evening views spectacular. We were a party of six - two couples and two singles. The two upstairs bathrooms are lovely - the master suite in particular. The two bedrooms downstairs are still a work in progress (as of beginning of February). There is currently a shared bathroom for two bedrooms with no door, which is a bit awkward for non couples. Tyler (manager) was super accommodating and had many suggestions for things to do. A vehicle is a “must” for this location. All-in-all, a great stay!

    Nuevo Arenal de Tilaran, Guanacaste Province, Costa Rica

    The perfect place in Nuevo Arenal for a couple or 1 person. Wonderful setting in gated community amidst the rain forest. Wake up, look out your window and see the howler monkeys and toucans pass by!
    Very quiet area with jungle all around you. However, one of very few places in the area with fiber optic internet! Ideal for nature lovers, birders, hikers and outdoor adventure seekers. You will be surrounded by all kinds of animals, numerous birds, orchids, etc. There are some beautiful walking trails through the rainforest on the community property. A longer hiking trail is within a 3-minute distance. This is a great area for mountainbiking. It is also a water sports paradise: windsurfing/kitesurfing at a 15 minute distance, wakeboarding and waterskiing and SUP at 30 minutes, kayaking 5 minutes away. Lake access is at 5 minutes in the public park in Nuevo Arenal, and at several other locations (Puerto San Luis being a very nice one, at 30 minutes), but not within walking distance. Pictures of the lake with this listing are for illustrative purposes, to show the area, but are not taken from our property.
    La Casita is situated in a quiet and green residential area.
  • Expect clean and beautiful setting. Quiet and great for bird watching. Affordable. Peaceful environment. Perfect for the Arenal trip.

    Rebecca2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Brest casita very quiet and Nice place Sander and is wife good hote

    Pierre-Paul2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Sander and his wife were extremely friendly hosts. The Airbnb is a Casita in the back of the property that is still very private. They provide a lot of local tips on restaurants and other things to do. It's about a 1 hr drive to Rio Celeste and 1 hr drive to Arenal Volcano. Would stay here again!

    Robin2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Pure nature and tranquility. Everything available. Cloths are changed and the waste disposed of. Stunning lots of different birds all around. Extremely friendly family. 4.5 km outside the village of Nuevo Arenal. An absolute highlight. Veronique and Peter

    Veronika2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • That place is the cutest, most welcoming Airbnb I've ever been to. Extremely clean, nice decoration, it got everything you need. The hosts gave us great suggestions for what to do. There were so many different birds! It's just so nice to wake up in the morning, look by the window and see the nature everywhere. It was also super quiet. I felt at home.

    Melissa2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • The casita is well removed from the highway on a paved access road. It is really quiet, except for the birds, frogs, and the sounds of waterfalls. There is a nice walking trail the and a forest trail nearby. The unit was clean and had everything we needed to be comfortable. Sander was readily available if needed, and was very responsive to requests. It is a short drive to Nuevo Arenal where there are markets, bakeries, restaurants and fuel. There is also a park in Nuevo Arenal where you can access the lake for swimming. We highly recommend this Casita.

    Charlie & Paula2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • Sander's place is in a great location to be able to drive and see the area-he had great local recommendations and was really nice to talk to! The space is cozy and relaxing, a wonderful stop on our Costa Rica adventure thank you for having us!

    Alissa2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • This is a cozy little house, situated in a beautiful green area. It is comfortable, clean and it suits perfectly for a quiet stay near the lake and surroundings. The hosts are really friendly and they made our stay much more enjoyable.

  • What a beautiful home in a fantastic location! The garden is stunning and you will see so many species of birds there. Breakfast (which is wonderful by the way) is served on the patio overlooking the garden and you almost don’t want to leave because it’s so peaceful. The room was clean, comfortable and well decorated. Parking was convenient and secure. There are a lot of close by options for shopping and eating within walking distance. I can’t say enough kind things about our hosts, they took the time to talk with us each day and even helped us find the local pharmacy (and talked to them ahead of time for us so they knew what we needed when we got there). They were very helpful, kind and thoughtful hosts.

  • We had a fantastic stay at Marita’s Airbnb. Marita and her husband were fantastic hosts — hope to be back some day!

    Genevieve2019-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • The place is like heaven on earth!! The terrace where you enjoy the best breakfast you ever had, is overlooking a lovely garden with many different trees and flowers! The view is breathtaking. You can also spot a hummingbird from the terrace. The rooms are very clean and comfortable with everything you need. Marita and Alberto are two wonderful, kind and open-hearted people who make your stay to an unforgettable time. There is so much attention to detail everywhere. The place is what airbnb really is about. We would definitely come back and can only recommend to stay there!!!

    Julian2019-06-03T00:00:00Z
  • Mrs. Marita and her husband are very kind and attentive. The house is very well located and the room that touched me is beautiful. The garden where they serve breakfast is very beautiful and relaxing, and the food very rich. I loved it and I hope someday to be able to return!

    Sylvia2019-05-13T00:00:00Z
  • Marita’s place is located in town, within walking distance to all that you may need. With a short walk to the lake you will have great views overlooking the water, a beautiful sunset and many other people enjoying the outdoors. Marita prepares a delicious breakfast and Alberto is there for any advice or information in English if one needs. The outdoor patio at the back of the house overlooks a beautiful, tropical garden with good seating arrangements to relax and socialize with others.

    Larry2019-04-23T00:00:00Z
  • Marita and her husband Alberto are two of the sweetest people you will ever meet! They are so warm and welcoming and have a beautiful home. The included breakfast was fantastic with a beautiful view of their back garden. The house is right next door to the German bakery and only 10 minutes from the lake. They gave us a great recommendation for dinner (Moya’s Place), and Marita did our laundry for a small fee. We only with we could have stayed with them longer!!

    Rachel2019-04-10T00:00:00Z
  • Marita and Albert provided an Incredible home away from home during our entire vacation. It’s an amazing oasis we’d love to return to someday.

    Watch the hummingbirds, toucans and parrots, whilst taking in the ever-changing view over Lake Arenal. Take advantage of the frequent bus service into Tilaran during the day, or walk the 10 mins into Tronadora or do a lovely circular route around the peninsula and maybe see the Howler monkeys or sloths.
  • It is an excellent place to have some peaceful time near Arenal Lake. The room was very comfortable; it had everything we needed. Indira and Rich are great hosts. They´re always kind and helpful if you need anything. I´d definitely come back.

    Vanesa2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Indira and Richard were wonderful hosts. Excellent value for budget-conscious travellers and loved the breakfast and the view.

    Shadoe2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Indira's place was the best out of all we have seen throughout trip in Costa Rica. Indira and her husband Richard were very friendly and nice. They provided useful tips for our trips. Their place has a beautiful view to the lake, wild life and mountains. They made us an amazing breakfast every morning even when we had to wake up at 6am. They were great hosts. We highly recommend Indira's place.

    Olena2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • We were very well received. The hosts are very attentive and attentive. The breakfast, included in the price, is very significant. The accommodation was very clean. There are several restaurants nearby. I highly recommend

    Blandine2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is located high up, with incredible views of Lake Arenal, the very good breakfast prepared by Indira and her husband is also served in front of this beautiful view. The accommodation is clean and the hosts are very nice, they explain with passion the different species of birds that can be found just below their house and sometimes even right outside the window, I recommend!

    Océane2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay with Indira and Richard. Their home is warm and cozy, with spectacular views of Lake Arenal. They treated us like friends from the moment we arrived. Breakfast in the mornings was a great start to the day. We enjoyed sitting and chatting with the two of them, while we were relaxing at their place. They have gated parking for your vehicle. There are some great little restaurants nearby, and we had a beautiful walk around the peninsula to see many of the homes around the lake. We would not hesitate to stay with Indira and Richard again. It was a very enjoyable 4 days in their home.

    Derek2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Richard and Indira are a most charming couple who go out of their way to make you feel at home. We stayed 3 nights and always felt comfortable. Their U.K. accents sometimes had us "leaning in" to understand, but that's what travel brings us. Overall, a great place to stay.

    Gary2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • Location, location, location... right on Lake Arenal! We were delighted with the large pane glass windows overlooking the beautiful lake and while eating a delicious breakfast, which was included in our room cost, we spotted many varieties of Costa Rican birds, including toucans, hummingbirds, montezumas, and many others of different colours.More birds than we saw during our entire hike at Monteverde. Fantastic views and thumbs up for the hospitality.

  • This was one of the best experiences we have ever had. They are both such beautiful and caring people. They drove us around Tilaran and even made us breakfast and dinner at times. They have a gorgeous dog named Kay and he loves people! The house is spectacular, it is massive and has an open design. If I'm ever back in Tilaran I will definitely be staying here again, you will not be disappointed. Thank you guys so much and I wish you all the best :) Pura Vida!

    Jakob2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • This was the best airbnb we have ever had! Jose and Olga received us very warmly. They are very open, talkative and patient. We could practice our Spanish with them and they were very patient with us :) They showed us their home, a very nice beach, the lake and we had the best Gallo Pinto! The house is large, bright and very clean. We enjoyed it very much and will definitely be back! Many thanks for everything!

    We have both one bedroom studio and two bedroom apartments available for short term or long term rental. Each unit has it's own entrance and bath. All units are fully furnished, kitchenettes, sat TV, and Hi Speed Internet. We differ from all from all other local rentals in that we are in Town. In walking distance to supermarkets, restraunts , nightlife and the other cultural attractions Arenal has to provide.
  • You will have a good time here. Charles does his best to give you great local knowledge. Much appreciated.

    Howard2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Chuck is a great host. Any little problem or question and he will help out. Location makes it easy to walk for food and supplies. Not to far to drive to Parque National Volcan Arenal, Mistico and La Fortuna. Washer and dryer on site and many friendly dogs nearby. Nice and cool, lots of greenery.

    Jan2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Charles is a great host. His place was great and has a great view of Lake Arenal. The two bedroom was a great space. It was close enough to town to walk for groceries, bars and restaurants. The place was clean, and there was hot water in all sinks.

    Jason2019-06-28T00:00:00Z
  • Place is exactly as described. Chuck was great with communication stopped by to check in several times to make sure everything was good. Very convenient location. It is a nice little apartment. Great value.

    Bryan2018-05-26T00:00:00Z
  • This place is exactly what we were looking for. We wanted to get away from the hot beaches of the Pacific coast and cool down in the mountains around Lake Arenal. We were in a quiet family neighborhood a couple of blocks from shopping and restaurants. The apartment had everything as advertised: we even cooked a couple of dinners instead of eating out. Charles and our neighbors, Joe and Angus, were easy-going and most helpful about the town of Nuevo Arenal. And yes, we're already making plans to come back next year.

    Jay2018-04-16T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay at Charles’ place in Nuevo Arenal! He was great with communication stopped by to check in and see if we needed any assistance. We loved the convenience of being able to cook also. It is a charming apartment. We recommend it as a great value!

    Gregory And Suzha2018-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Chuck is a kind and helpful host - he even helped us with transportation to the apartment! The description and pictures are accurate. Pluses: good location, good, reliable wifi (with multiple routers), free onsite washer AND dryer! Minus: rather noisy (loud refrigerator, neighbor noise). Best of all, keep an eye out for the toucans who like to land in the big tree by the back patio!

    Elani2018-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Best place every.. Great location in town, close to grocery stores and the Tico's and Tica's are wonderful. The place is quaint with an area to sit our back and watch the birds and the clouds roll in. We would stay here again anytime in the future.

    Nuevo Arenal, Guanacaste Province, Costa Rica

    We are a very welcoming family. We love to get to know other cultures and share ours. We guarantee that here you will find a home where you feel at HOME. The house is clean and includes linens. We are near the bus stop, Monteverde, La Fortuna de San Carlos, Cañas and not too far from San Jose. We are only 1 hour from Liberia airport and Guanacaste beaches, 10 minutes from Lake Arenal and 1 hour from Volcano Arenal. This is a great location to be near everything.
    This is a simple, clean home. It is great for resting. There is no traffic noise, only neighborhood dogs and cats sometimes. Our family is always available to help.
    The house is in a peaceful neighborhood with a beautiful view. The neighborhood dogs and cats do make noise sometimes. The house is located near the Wind Park which is a beautiful location to see some amazing sunsets and view of the town of Tilarán.
  • A very cozy home with very friendly people and willing to help you in whatever you occupy. The place is simple but beautiful enough for what is occupied during the trip.

    Kenny2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Ana and Roberto are very welcoming and warm people! Ana picked us up early at the bus stop without any problem, she took us to see her farm next door and gave us good advice! Very open to exchanges and discussion, we will return in hesitation !! Pura vida

    Chloé2019-11-09T00:00:00Z
  • I had a wonderful time. Spent a month with Ana & Roberto’s family and Ana was really good about teaching me Spanish and local cooking. Roberto was great in taking me to La Fortuna and the bus stop when I needed. Both were great about answering any questions I had and giving me recommendations on places to go or see. Tilaran is a great town to stay in if you want to know true Costa Rican life and not just the tourist life. Ana was very helpful and the house was great.

    Stacy2019-11-06T00:00:00Z
  • It was the best decision we could have made. A unique family that won our hearts, a warm and welcoming home, we feel part of the family, the best food, the best data to visit and know the sector. We are grateful to have met you and will be happy to visit our beloved Costa Rican family, Pura Vida!

    Luis2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Ana & Roberto were such beautiful and kind people! If you’re looking for good interaction with a Costa Rican family, this is perfect! It felt a little more like a home stay than we expected but it was amazing! Thank you so much!

    Natalie2019-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • Very good service and hospitality. A very cozy place

    Sergio2019-05-07T00:00:00Z
  • Ana and Roberto's place was very comfortable and clean. We had the pleasure of talking with Ana and her daughter for a while when we first arrived, and they were so welcoming. We even got to meet their adorable pup. Ana also made us a delicious fruit breakfast the following day, and helped us with directions for our hike. We look forward to staying with them again!

    Ryan2019-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Ana & Roberto (and daughter Emily) are great hosts. They made my mom and I feel very welcome in their home and got us situated, giving us tips for things to do around the area including a hike to Cerra Pelado and an off-the-road waterfall along the way to get there. The valley is absolutely gorgeous and I am so happy we got to see this area. This family actually stayed in another house they have so my mom and I had the whole place to ourselves for the evening and they taught us how to lock up and check out which made for a friendly and then private stay which was nice.

It is a very welcoming family and they are very beautiful people. It is a quiet place, surrounded by nature, totally recommended !! It is on a farm where you can go for a walk and see the lake, and right there Mrs. Romarie has a restaurant where she serves delicious food, coffee, cakes !!! and exquisite salads with vegetables from the same garden. Thank you so much for everything!!!

    Lou2019-03-26T00:00:00Z
  • It was the nicest host we had, although tough understanding in Spanish. She made us the best casados and Gallo pinto we had so far in CR. One bedroom has private toilet and shower. We had it :)

    There are very few neighbours, dairy farm within walking distance, different lake accesses for all tastes: hikers, biker, horse back riders, and drivers.
  • This location was truly spectacular! I can’t say enough good things about it. The views of the lake and pastures were phenomenal. It was the perfect get away to unplug and relax. The host, Ronald, was super helpful and connected us with many resources in the community. He even connected us with affordable transportation. We will forever be thankful to Ronald for all the help he gave us and we are truly thankful that we found this amazing lake house which we plan on revisiting again soon.

    Gina2020-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • What a great place to relax. The view of the lake and volcano is excellent. The grounds are very nice, and the local animals are such a nice addition to the feel of the place. The price/experience ratio here is through the roof. Communication with Ronald was fast and easy. It's a come-back-able rental.

    T.J. & Cathy2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Great house in a picturesque location. Panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows. Ronald reported useful and interesting places near the house, this information was very useful!

    Andrey2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • This place was awesome to stay at! The view was absolutely stunning, with the front of the home being all windows. The place was super clean and toiletries were provided in each of the bathrooms. The host was very responsive and explained all the home info, such as how to use the alarm, the front gate and all the various keys etc. The bed was super comfy and being able to wake up to the lake view and the rising sun was awesome. A great place in a great location with a great host. Would most definitely stay here again!

    Ryan2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Ronald’s place would make for a wonderful retreat to just relax and enjoy the views. Our car reservation fell through, so that made the location difficult for day trips but the views are better than the pics can represent. It was very windy. Some have knocked it but it was great for sleeping and added to a mythical mystique. :)

    Eric2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • We really like this sturdy little house for its scenic views and isolation; so much so that this was a return visit. Recommended.

    Charlene2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed the wild toucans in the big tree and the howler monkeys. The house has great views and a fantastic room upstairs where you can enjoy yourself mosquito free! The place is laid out thoughtfully to maximize the views. The turn off was a little tricky to see the first time but had a wonderful stay with our family. I would not stay here with small toddler or babies as the railings are far enough apart that you child could walk or crawl right through them to a fall.

  • Heilyn was so nice and welcoming! The place itself is gorgeous - a cute little cottage with so much space. It also had a walk-out patio where you can open the sliding doors to the outstanding view below. My Costa Rica trip was 12 days and I’ve had the chance to stay in 5 different places - this has been the best by far. That view will blow you away!

    Jason2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Heilyn's place was quite clean and comfortable. Heilyn did an excellent job providing detailed directions and responded to all inquiries quickly.

    Etan2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing view. I loved watching the landscape change throughout the day. An 8-10 minute drive into town and you can get everything you need. Heilyn is a friendly host. We would stay again when passing through this area.

    Michael2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • I only rated our stay at Heilyn's beautiful casita "as expected" because we have stayed in Heilyn's properties many times and we have grown to expect a wonderful, beautiful, comfortable and amazing experience and that's just what we got again!

  • This is a beautiful home in a great location! Enjoy an amazing view from the front porch and close proximity to restaurants and the lake while still feeling private and secluded.

  • Heilyn’s place was magical - complete privacy overlooking a gorgeous view of the lake and countryside below, and the chorus of bird sounds was the best of our trip. We loved the view and the openness of the living space and the fact that the wall of windows are actually large sliding glass doors with screens that let the cool breeze in and brought the gorgeous view to the living space. The washer and dryer were extremely convenient, and although we didn’t cook during our stay, we found it very thoughtful that cooking basics were available (oils, seasonings, etc). The master bed was large but a bit too soft for our preference - the double bed and twin bed in the second bedroom were more firm and our kids slept great! The place was extremely clean and cozy and we felt like we were home, but transplanted to paradise! The shower was clean and hot. The internet worked well enough. There were several places to eat/shop within 10-15 minutes or less drive either direction. We spent the day at Baldi Hot springs in the La Fortuna area and the drive was very doable - about an hour, but on very smooth good roads with a beautiful view the entire way. We saw Coati’s along the drive. We wished we had a full week in the area instead of just one night - so much to see and do, and so incredibly beautiful and relaxing. Heilyn was very accommodating and easy to work with, and gave excellent directions. Our family of four absolutely loved our quick stay and would definitely stay there again!

  • They had a beautiful home and amazing view. We did get lost in the beginning, but easily found the place after rereading the directions. They were really nice and they even showed us the Mama and baby sloth in the garden.

    Krista2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • This was our favorite place to stay in Costa Rica. Kees is one of the nicest people we’ve ever met. The apartment is comfortable and cute. Kees provides complimentary coffee and tea. If you like, he will prepare you a beautiful breakfast with Dutch pancakes, eggs, ham, fruit shakes and more for a small charge. The pool is new and beautiful behind a clear wall that keeps out the wind but lets in the view. We liked this place so much we came back to stay later on in our trip.

    Deborah2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Kees was an awesome host! His place was super comfortable and his hospitality was the best.

    Ashley2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • We had a nice experience around the Laguna de Arenal and we recommend to drive around the lake and pay a visit to the Arenal volcano. Kees is a nice and helpful host. He will let you know about the different options around his place and where to eat. The place is simple yet pleasing and the view on the lake unbelievable. We strongly recommend.

    Tilarán, Guanacaste, Costa Rica

    Casa Victoria is a newly remodeled, 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom house, with gorgeous lake views from nearly every room in the house! Located on 4 acres, in a quiet, country setting, you have the possibility of parrot and toucan sightings and maybe even monkeys, from the back porch! The house is fully furnished with all the comforts of home! Enjoy cooking in the beautiful, modern kitchen and watch the sunset from the kitchen sink or the dining room table!
    Our home has 2 master bedrooms with king beds and private bathrooms. The queen bedroom and twin bunk bedroom share a bathroom. There is a laundry room with a washer and dryer for your convenience. Located only 3/4 mile east of Nuevo Arenal, it is a quick 2 minute drive into town where you'll find a gas station, several grocery stores and a nice variety of restaurants. We personally enjoyed and recommend Moya's, Los Platillos Veracruz and Chafi's Bar. We are only 30 minutes from the hot springs and Volcano Arenal near La Fortuna. The closest airport is Liberia, which is approximately 2 hours away. San Jose airport is approximately 3 hours.
    The surrounding neighborhood is rural and quiet.
  • Amazing view. Clean.

    Skyler2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful area. And very clean. Superb view of the sunset. House a bit away, in the middle of nowhere, but everything is done quickly by car. Excessively windy. At least the three evenings we were there. However, that didn't stop us from having a great time at Casa Victoria. We recommend this place.

    Martin2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great location! Quiet town to relax after adventure filled days. Beautiful lake views and sunsets. Just what we needed for our family trip! It fit all 9 of us comfortably. Thanks!

    JayDee2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • This house is amazing, very spacious and clean, and the view of the lake is amazing especially at sunset. Unfortunately it rained a lot while we were there so we appreciated the house even more. Sheryl was great at responding, check-in was super easy and overall it was a great stay, thank you!

    Catherine2020-01-21T00:00:00Z

    Jessica2019-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • We recently had the privilege to stay here. The house is clean and gorgeous. The beds are comfortable, and there was plenty of space for our family of six. Sheryl quickly responded to all of my questions throughout the entire experience. We enjoyed our stay! We hope we get the chance to return someday!

    Nuevo Arenal, Guanacaste Province, Costa Rica

    This house is near the town center and the bus stop. Tilarán is near Monteverde, La Fortuna de San Carlos, Cañas and not too far from San Jose. We are only 1 hour from Liberia airport and Guanacaste beaches, 10 minutes from Lake Arenal and 1 hour from Volcano Arenal. This is a great location to be near everything. Tilarán is a town where you can stay and feel at peace. Our Airbnb is a special place to come and rest.
    This is a completely furnsished house and equipped kitchen. It is peaceful and a great place to rest. The shower has hot water and the house has a garage. The bedroom is not shared. The dogs and cats in the neighborhood do make noise at times. We have beautiful views and are located in a friendly neighborhood. It is strategically located to easily get to great locations such as waterfalls, the lake, our finca (farm), and the volcano.
    The house is in a peaceful neighborhood with a beautiful view. The neighborhood dogs and cats do make noise sometimes. The house is located near the Wind Park which is a beautiful location to see some amazing sunsets and view of the town of Tilarán.
  • Ana and Roberto were gracious hosts and made us feel welcome in their home. We would highly recommend a stay with them. Ana speaks English, but we wanted to use our Spanish, and Ana made sure she spoke clearly, so we could understand her. Their house was clean and we had everything we needed in the bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen, and were able to park our rental car on the street in front of the house. Depending on how fast you drive, their house is 90 to 120 minutes from Tenorio and Monte Verde/Santa Elena. The road to Tenorio was seriously pot-holed, and the road to Santa Elena was somewhat better; we we made it to both in a normal passenger car (in the dry season). Ana and Roberto offered excellent suggestions for walking/hiking destinations that were much closer, and that we enjoyed. Tilaran was a very pleasant town, and we were able to get everything we needed for cooking, setting up our phone, and doing a minor equipment repair. We had a bit of a hard time finding their house when we got to town, but got close and then asked around and people knew them and pointed us in the right direction. If you use Waze for navigation, set your destination as "Barrio La T, Guanacaste Province, Tilaran." When you get to the top of the hill, turn left and the house is the second house on your right after after your turn.

    Fred2020-01-06T00:00:00Z

    Jonathan2019-11-30T00:00:00Z

    Juliane2019-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful warm family, who shared their joy with me: the finca is beautiful, with many delicious home-grown fruits and vegetables. A great place, a great family to learn Spanish, collaborate or just stay overnight. I will be back soon. The rooms and the house is tip-top.

    Teresa2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Ana is amazing! I rented a room but I got a entire experience with her! The place is central, perfect to visit Monteverde, Arenal and La Fortuna! Don’t think twice! Choose Ana’s place!

    Juliana2019-07-03T00:00:00Z
  • I had a lovely time in Tilarán with Ana, Roberto and his family. My short time in the city exceeded all my expectation, thanks to my wonderful host who went far and beyond what is asked of them to make my trip enjoyable. If you’re ever around this part of Costa Rica, and cannot stress enough how I recommend this place. Pura Vida!

    Mathieu2018-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you so much to the whole family for welcoming me so warmly into your home. I booked for one night but ended up staying a week. I was looking for a quiet place to do my own thing and get into nature, and this was the perfect match. At the same time there was also a lot to do around Tilaran, and the family offers all kinds of tips and tricks of things to do. For example, Roberto took me and some fellow Airbnbers for a beautiful hike in the hills followed by a refreshing dip in a waterfall. Ana cooked some delicious tico food for me, and often had fresh fruit on the table. The girls were alway friendly, inviting me to watch movies with them and up for a chat. Thank you all for a wonderful time in Tilaran! :)

    Lorain2018-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • More than superhosts.une very nice meeting! Always available and attentive.roberto came ns fetching the bus.Very good place to discover a little more of the Costa Rican culture.We thank them for allowing us to make our stay even more beautiful with a day at the cerro pelado and a beautiful cascade.I recommend without hesitation.

    Marita, owner of Marita's B&B, is a Costa Rican. Marita’s B&B is a one level house, without stairs to climb. Within a short walk, Marita’s B&B guest can visit all Nuevo Arenal public facilities, including beautiful Lake Arenal Park, as shown on the location map, photo 3. A Guest terrace, overlooking a lovely garden, is open day and night. A delicious Costa Rican breakfast is served daily. Guest are provided with a locked private parking space. Marita and husband Alberto, live at Marita’s B&B.

    Nuevo Arenal is a beautiful town. It is located high and never gets too cold or too hot. Almost daily, a fresh wind blows and breathing the air is incredible. Crime in Nuevo Arenal is minimal. Children take pride in their school and sports activity. Typical of Costa Ricans, the citizen are friendly and well mannered. Beautiful Lake Arenal is a 10-minute walk from Marita's. All Nuevo Arenal facilities are a short walking distance from Marita's.
  • We booked two nights, and at first thought maybe that was too many for the size of the town, but the beauty and tranquility of the backyard garden made us glad we did. We had been warned about truck noise, and there was some briefly, but not enough to be a big bother. Sitting on the back patio taking in the garden and all the bird activity was a little slice of heaven. The breakfasts were delicious, the room comfy. Marita's husband is an ex-pat who is super gracious and helpful. He steered us toward a nice nearby spot to watch the sunset at the lake, and gave us good dining out tips. I will be thinking wistfully of their backyard for a long time.

    Keitha2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • I highly recommend this room for a group of friends or family traveling to Nuevo Arenal. The Lake Arenal park is walking distance and is a great activity for families. This town is very quiet and relaxing. Marita’s house has an excellent view out to a garden and it is absolutely gorgeous! Marita prepared us an amazing breakfast too 😀.

    Baltazar2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Marita’s place is in a great location in Arenal. You can park your car and walk to town or the lake. There are several great restaurants close by. And Marita make a wonderful breakfast! A sweet spot to stay in town!

    Kendal2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Marita and Alberto are really great hosts, and we really glad we stayed at their house (Toucan room). They are truly welcoming, and we enjoyed conversations with both Alberto and Marita immensely. Following their advice we went to the lake park and got otherworldly sunset, the combination of colors was fantastic and unreal. The terrace is great, and their beautiful garden attracts more colorful birds than we saw anywhere in Costa Rica later. It was truly amazing, I counted about 12 different species while sipping coffee on the terrace. The room is not big, but has enough space and furniture to accommodate comfortably a family of 4. Marita cooked delicious typical breakfast in the morning. Thank you very much!

    Alex2020-01-09T00:00:00Z

    Maria2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • My family stayed at Marita's B&B place for 2 days when we visited Costa Rica. We had a great time at their place. Marita and Alberto are great hosts. They treated us to great local breakfast and took care of our special vegetarian needs. The room is nice and walkable distance to couple of awesome restaurants. Thanks to Marita and Alberto. Warm regards and best wishes.

    Sree2019-08-13T00:00:00Z

    Beautiful house on the top of a small montain: an amazing view on Arenal Lake and village. Two double bedrooms available with private bathroom. Jungle on bedroom side, and a large living and outdoor terrace on lake side. Breakfast included.
    Peace and the nature. The perfect place to be to have a good time.
  • Our stay at Jean-Claude's was excellent!! Enjoyed chatting and learning about his life. Very interesting bird watching from his balcony and the best sunset we saw during our time in Costa Rica. We felt at home here and he always made sure we had everything we needed. Would definitely recommend staying here. Also the dog Lulu is the best welcoming party!

    Emilie2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • This was an amazing 2-day experience. jean-Claude’s house is a gem on top of a small mountain. The huge and beautiful terrace give you a breathtaking view of Arenal lake and nature. I saw several beautiful places in Costa Rica, and Jean-Claude’s house has better view than many of them. He has several birds and you can also see other birds such as oropendolas and Toucans while relaxing in the terrace or your bedroom. I also loved his cute dog, Lulu. Jean-Claud is very generous and kind, and I really appreciate his genuine hospitality. He made sure I was really comfortable, and frequently asked me if I wanted some coffee, tea or fruits. He also served breakfast for me( something rare for Airbnb). I also really enjoyed talking to him and listening to his interesting stories. He gave me tips about what to do and where to go on area. Overall, I really enjoyed my stay at Jean-Claude’s place, and I felt I was visiting a family. I will go back there if I come back to Costa Rica.

    Mojgan2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing Amazing Amazing !!! JC is the best host we have had all over the world. His house is magical and home made, he will tell you about it among other amazing stories about his life. No words can describe how beautiful and breathtaking the view is. The hospitality is unforgettable and wonderful. The bedroom is big and private, the bathroom is amazing. JC will make you breakfast in the morning and if you are lucky enough he will show you his stretching routine. I won’t give it all away because being surprised at this magical place is part of the Journey. It is really sad leaving because it feels like we are leaving family.

    Wylder2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • JC was a wonderful host with entertaining stories! The house is on top of a hill which makes for a beautiful sunset overlooking the lake. JC also made us breakfast which was very delicious. Thank you JC!

    Manny2017-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Such a lovely house with a beautiful view! Definitely a trek up the mountainside though so be prepared. Jean-Claude was a responsive and welcoming host. We had a lovely evening on the porch and an amazing breakfast the next morning!

    Danielle2016-04-02T00:00:00Z
  • Jean-Claude is very gracious, well-mannered, and extremely hospitable. The view from his oversized terrace is incredible, overlooking the lake, with countless wild birds in the surrounding forest, as well as a good amount of colorful, playful domesticated birds. There is a beautiful garden as well, all of which I was able to enjoy each morning ad Jean-Claude served me a terrific breakfast before I would embark on my adventure for the day. His house is high atop a steep hill, so a 4WD vehicle is necessary for access. Nuevo Arenal is about an hour drive from most of the attractions in the El Castillo & La Fortuna area, however, the lake itself is very close by, and there are many opportunities for windsurfing and boat trips in the area. Virtually no tourists in Nuevo Arenal made it the perfect compliment for my solo adventure. In the evenings when I returned from hiking or ziplining or hot springs, Jean-Claude greeted me with tea, and he would tell me about himself or about Costa Rica, or about almost anything, as he has many interesting stories and anecdotes about life, travel, and success. He is wise and caring, and I felt as if I had just met a member of my own family. I hope to return to Costa Rica soon!

    Jerry2016-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very special time with JC, because he lives in the big house and we felt like private guests. The view over the lake is great and our room was spacious and very well prepared and decorated with many flowers out of his garden. We felt very welcome and comfortable and can fully recommend that house!

    Christiane2016-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Jean Claude went out of his way to make our stay at his home a great experience. He even had multiple rooms prepared for us to choose from. He has a beautiful home with really sweet birds.

    Tilaran, Guanacaste Province, Costa Rica

    It is located in a rural area away from San Jose, but close to all the exotic nature! The kitchen is equipped with all the needed appliances to enjoy a great meal as you can see in the pics. It is close to many touristic areas such as Lake Arenal, La Fortuna, Monteverde Reserve, thermal springs, etc. Very, very, cozy!!!
    I have worked very hard on the designed of this place, that I now call my home after living away in El Salvador for 40 years. I worked side by side with the builders to make it happened with a limited budget. All who have come to visit have enjoyed it, I hope you do too!
  • casa el viento is a really nice place to stay. the nationalparks tenorio, arenal and monteverde are really close. it isn't touristic and it's in a really nice and safe neighboorhood. however in a range of 1 kilometer there are some really good and cheap restaurants for eating typical costa rican food. our bedroom was really clean and big and we had our own bathroom with warm water. in total there are two bedrooms for visitors and all have their own bathroom despite the description. no shared bathrooms! in the garden you have two chairs with view to the lake. mabel was a really kind host and made delicous breakfast every morning and she helped us washing our clothes. she likes to speak with the guests and even made some fruitsalad in the evening especially for us. pura vida best airbnb so far!

    Sascha2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Mabel is such a warm and generous host. It can be difficult in Costa Rica with WiFi and addresses, but Mabel picked me up from a nearby restaurant. She gave me a hug and I was greeted with a smile. Mabel’s home has a lovely view of the lake. The guest bedroom was very cozy and the mattress and sheets were incredibly comfortable. I needed a good nights sleep after several hours of traveling by bus. Mabel invited me to have dinner with her sister and cousin and niece. She made some beans and rice with yuca. And we put onions, cilantro and avocado slices on top. Mabel has a very cute and sweet cat named Lucy. I love animals, so it’s always fun when an Airbnb has pets. In the morning I made myself some coffee and Mabel made some tasty plantains with cinnamon. I also ate more beans. Never enough beans in Costa Rica! Haha. Hopefully my spanish will get better and Mabel’s english will get better as we continue to practice. It would be nice. Using a translator on my phone was helpful. A note for travelers is that the house is not in Tilaran. It is around the lake in an area called Arenal. So expect to go an additional 25!minutes extra from Tilaran. I highly recommend staying with Mabel and I will always rent with her in this area.

    Dana2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Mabel is a welcoming hostess and makes an excellent breakfast! As other reviewers have mentioned, she speaks a little English, (and I speak even less Spanish) but we got along just fine with the help of google translate! Be sure to have a really good idea of where you’re going ahead of time because it’s not easy to find and the Waze link sent me to a generic place in Tilaran, so I overshot it by about 30 minutes and my phone (t-mobile) had no connection so I ended up having to stop and find somewhere with wifi. Here’s the Pin that finally got me there: https://www.google.com/maps/place/10.562930+-84.962624/?entry=im But I’m the end it all worked out and it was a great stay!

    Cindi2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful location, nice house, quiet location, near Lake Arenal and a 5-minute drive from the surf spot Ticowinds. Hospitality is excellent, very friendly! We were able to communicate well with google translate. Bedroom with great bed. We have seen a toucan in the back garden! Every morning Costa Rican breakfast, with coffee and the smoothie was delicious! Recommended!

    Brenda2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying with Mabel. She was a wonderful hostess and made us feel right at home. My husband speaks Spanish so that helped us get to know her better. Her home is cute and cozy and she has made most of the wooden decor herself including the end tables, bookcases, lamps,etc. She is truly very resourceful. It is best to have a rental car to get around but her home is truly an oasis and the view from the front porch is lovely.

    Anna2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • It is a place too quiet and cozy, perfect to rest. It is a very complete accommodation. Mabel is a helpful and friendly person despite the distance he was always aware of our stay. If one day they go through these places, they have to go where Mabel I promise they will not regret it, it is wonderful.

  • Great place! Peaceful and beautiful. Highly suggest renting a car though if you are going to stay here. Difficulty/long travel times by bus to places like monteverde, la Fortuna, rio Celeste etc. Otherwise great & would recommend!! :)

  • The Best! Please do yourself a favour and stay with Mabel. Her hospitality, warmth and generosity is outstanding and her home is beautiful and tranquil. You couldn’t ask for more! I couldn’t speak a word of Spanish, and Mabel doesn’t speak English, but this was no problem with google translate!

  • What a wonderful experience when staying at Casa Tortuguero, upon arrival, Nic gave me a tour of the house, since my arrival I really felt the warm welcome of the hosts Nic and Bill, sincerely I was surprised by the wonderful landscape, you can see from and in its garden some toucans, howler monkeys, wild turkeys and a large number of hummingbirds, the view from anywhere in the house is really spectacular from where you can see the lake and the Arenal volcano. The breakfast was wonderful and the hosts are always aware of what you need. Definitely a perfect place to stay. I will definitely be back soon. --- What a wonderful experience when staying at Casa Tortuguero, upon my arrival, Nic gave me a tour of the house, since my arrival I really felt the warm welcome of the hosts Nic and Bill, sincerely I was surprised by the wonderful landscape, it can be appreciated from and in its garden some toucans, howler monkeys, wild turkeys and a large number of hummingbirds, the view from anywhere in the house is really spectacular from where you can see the lake and the Arenal volcano.

  • We were here as a family with two children (3 and 5 years) and had a very good time. The house was very clean, well furnished with everything you could need, the pool was sparkling clean and cleaned every day and the common area was great. The kids loved the games and books and we loved the billiards. Every day we could observe Colibris in the immediate vicinity on the terrace and watch many birds at breakfast every morning. The place also had everything you need, we always drove the short distance by car. Breakfast was always very well presented with coffee, tea, fresh fruit and croissants. There was a little sweet surprise for the children every day. Thank you for the hospitality! We can really recommend the accommodation.

    Bianca2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean and exactly as advertised. The hill up to property very steep, But provided a great view at the top. Breakfast was very good and prompt.

    David2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • This place is truly outstanding. The view, the many birds -toucans, quetzal, hummingbirds, crested guan, just to name a few you will see from your patio, the service and friendly attention from the owner, the lovely pool and comfortable beds were all excellent. We would highly recommend Marcela's place and hope to return for a longer stay. We recommend having a vehicle. It would not be easy to be there without a car though you could arrange transportation.

    Gisele2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • Marcela was a great host. We will stay there on our next trip to Costa Rica

    Robert2019-12-06T00:00:00Z
  • When you are a bird lover, a sucker for good hospitality, love a beautiful view, and would want to stay in a nice place, this is the place to go to! We were welcomed by Marcela with a nice drink and the fridge was filled with good things to buy, like lemonade, wine, beer and some cheese and sausage. The bird feeder was filled immediately after our arrival, so within minutes the hummingbirds were on our terrace only a meter away and other birds were fed a few meters away in the garden. Marcela was very helpful with finding nice things to do and sends you directions and info. Our stay was way too short in this beautiful part of the country!

    Marjolein2019-08-01T00:00:00Z
  • It is wonderful accomodation. The view is brillant, the breakfast is delicious and the kids are about the pool and the games.

    Claudia2019-05-19T00:00:00Z
  • Marcela is a super host, we started to look forward to her pastries in the morning OMG, birders paradise, great tours, helped us with banking issues, and she even has a night light in the bathroom.

    Bruce2019-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Nice little house, the beds are very comfortable, the equipment is new. In addition, Marcela is very friendly and helpful, the pastries were delicious. The location is central to visit the Rio Celeste and the Arenal Volcano.
