This house was specially designed by a very inspired and precise American lady. The construction is modern and the bathroom is amazing... full of marble and tile and including a large tub you seldom find in Costa Rica and a large, open shower. The rooms are spacious and airy and the property is located on its own very large lot at the end of a private road. There is lots of space and privacy as a result and the lot is surrounded by trees. Plus there are numerous other fruit trees in the area including guava and banana that attract all kinds of birds like toucans and oropendulas, plus plenty of flowering shrubs to keep the property fluttering with butterflies and hummingbirds.

Despite this almost pastoral setting, the house is less than a five minute walk from the park at the center of town. Talk about a great location! Not only will you save money on car rentals (everything is within easy walking distance but we can offer an English speaking taxi service for longer trips if you wish) so you'll be perfectly placed to enjoy everything that La Fortuna has to offer while still enjoying the peace and quiet of this private setting.

The house is newly built and comes with hot water throughout, air conditioning, WiFi and cable TV. There is a fully equipped kitchen and there are a number of grocery stores nearby, ranging from a small neighborhood minimarket to the downtown super, so you can easily shop and prepare your own meals or else easily take advantage of the wide array of nearby dining and entertainment options.

Because there are still a few minor things to finish at the house such as artwork and a bit of landscaping, and because it is a new property being made available as a vacation rental for the first time it is being offered for a short time at a substantial discount of only $75 per night
less 20% off for all bookings confirmed and paid for in January 2014. Three double beds comfortably sleep 6, with a queen-sized hide-a-bed couch that can easily sleep three more children, four if they are small and fit sidewise. This is perfect for two families of close friends traveling together and not wanting to pay to eat at restaurants for every meal or deal with the hassle of a rental car.

Because of this special location you are also in easy walking distance to most pickup points for various tours and attractions in the area. Not only that but we will get all of our guests a discount of 10% on everything that they want to do in the area! All you have to do is let us know in advance what you're interested in; get in touch and we can schedule things for you to fit your plans.
