Besides this impressive scenery, the villa has an exclusive access trail to the lake where you can enjoy water activities such as kayaking (kayaks available for FREE), swimming, fishing or just appreciate the fresh water of this amazing lake. We recommend the private area for picnics or any other family activities. For those who are passionate for the outdoors, there is also enough room to walk / run around the property trails. The wonderful gardens make the environment perfect for a relaxing and an enjoyable stay. It makes you feel part of the spectacular nature that Costa Rica has to offer. We recommend meals on the outside deck while enjoying the amazing lake view. If you feel like going out and trying local cuisine, there are plenty of options around (Nuevo Arenal 7 min away). We have provided a list of restaurants with their detailed descriptions, schedules and directions for you to choose. A great characteristic of this house is its strategic location 30 miles West of La Fortuna, 12 miles to Tilaran and approximately a 90 min drive to the Daniel Oduber International Airport (Liberia). In addition to the local restaurants, we offer the guests grocery service or meals prepared by our local cook. Ask for more details on these options!!More
