Each additional guest is $15/night/person, which increases to $30/night/person during the holidays. Nestled at the end of a quiet gravel road, yet only steps from the park in the center of town lies this tropical jewel of a private retreat. The villa has just been extensively renovated and outfitted to be a one of a kind, upscale private rental. There is a king size bed in the master bedroom with an ensuite bathroom. The second and third bedrooms have queen size beds with single top bunks (they are currently being reconstructed to have the queen beds rotated 90 degrees so it is perpendicular to the single top bunk. Pictures coming soon!) This way both people on the bottom can easily get in and out of bed. There are individual air conditioning units throughout the house so the temperature can be set to suit personal preferences in each bedroom as well as in the main room and the kitchen/dining room. The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking, or have our we can arrange for our private chef to prepare meals. There is a breakfast bar separating the kitchen and the dining area which features a stunning, hand-crafted wood dining set that seats 12 people. In the evenings you can snuggle up on the big, comfy couches to watch a movie. There are two couches and two love seats in the living room along with a large flat screen TV with features a variety of English and music channels. There is also high-speed Internet available throughout the property. The sliding doors open to the backyard which features a large, covered patio and not one but two pools. The is a private retreat that is completely fenced. There is a covered patio with lounge chairs for relaxing in the shade as well as an outdoor table and benches. Enjoy spending an evening grilling in the bar/kitchen area also under roof in case of rainy nights ;-) There is a large swimming pool and smaller kiddie pool next to it so kids of all ages and adults can have fun taking a dip. Both are lined with comfortable deck chairs for catching some rays. Along the back wall is a beautiful mural of plants and animals from the rainforest; many of which you will probably be lucky enough to see during your stay! This is a lovely property that is close to nature but literally only a few steps away from everything that La Fortuna has to offer. You're sure to love staying here, we hope to host you soon. Pura Vida! :-)More

About the neighbourhood
This area is the adventure capital of Costa Rica. We're so impressed with it that we live here ourselves! There is an endless variety of activities here ranging from white water rafting to zip lining to guided hikes around the volcano, to close up encounters with wild animals, to caving to world famous hot springs and spa facilities... the list goes on and on! Ask us for our vacation planner to help you get a handle on what your options are!
Getting around
Some of the activities include transportation from the house or nearby. We can also arrange private van service. The house is located 4 blocks from the park in the center of town.
