All linens, towels and kitchen utensils onsite. If you are looking smaller, less expensive, accommodations, please check out our Blue Butterfly Cottage on our property..... a cozy, quiet and private cottage that sleeps 1-4 adults.. Contact us for details about our cottage for up to 4 persons. We have a 1 acre private natural swimming pond with platforms and swimming ladders for ease of use. Make sure you check out our photos. We have many banana, pineapple, orange, mandarin, grapefruit, lemon, lime, breadfruit trees and more. You are welcome to enjoy all that the property has to offer. We are only 2.5km (1.5 miles) outside the Town of Nuevo Arenal. Close to shopping, tours and dining. Our location makes a perfect base for those wanting to explore all Costa Rica has to offer or just relax and enjoy the many hiking trails, flora, fauna and wildlife without leaving the property. Please note: If you are planning to rent a vehicle, make sure it has high clearance. 4X4 is not really necessary but something with high clearance is... something like a mini-SUV or larger. We strongly recommend something larger than a compact or economy car. Although the roads are safe, they can be bumpy especially after rainy season and the road to our property is not paved.More
