Make A Holiday Rental House in Lake Arenal, Costa Rica, Your Home Away From Home

Lake Arenal can be found at the base of the Arenal volcano in Costa Rica. It is an artificial lake which was created in order to provide hydro-electricity to the country, and it measures nearly 85 square kilometres. Since its creation, the lake and its surrounding area has also become a popular tourist destination, with many thousands of people from around the world visiting it each year. Tourists can choose from a range of accommodation options, with many preferring to stay in a holiday rental house in Lake Arenal. It is difficult to better a luxury house set in the rainforest close by to the shores of the lake, and the facilities within contain all the mod-cons such as cable TV and fitted kitchens.

Things to Do on Holiday in Lake Arenal, Costa Rica

Staying at a holiday rental house in Lake Arenal presents the opportunity to take part in a variety of leisure activities. The lake itself offers the chance to go swimming, wind surfing, fishing, water skiing and diving amongst other things. On dry land, horse riding, cycling, mountain climbing and hiking can all be enjoyed. It’s perhaps important not to underestimate the heat when taking part in leisure activities, and it is a sensible precaution to take plenty of water along.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Lake Arenal, Costa Rica

Many people on a holiday on Lake Arenal will be content with their immediate surroundings and the leisure activities which are possible there without feeling the need to explore the area further. Those that do take the time to venture out into the scenic paradise around the lake will be richly rewarded, though. On a walk around the lake, many birds and monkeys can be seen in their natural surroundings, and the lush rain forest is a spectacle in itself. Further away, one can also visit the volcano itself, and some time should be taken to venture to Monte Verde which is an eco-tourism centre.

Weather in Lake Arenal, Costa Rica

Costa Rica is located close to the equator, and as such has a tropical climate. Therefore, people thinking of booking self catering accommodation in Lake Arenal should keep in mind that there are two distinctive seasons, which are the wet and dry season. The dry season is the most popular time of year to travel in, which lasts between December and April. Rainfall is minimal during this period, and the average day time high temperatures are above 26 degrees Celsius.

Travel to Lake Arenal, Costa Rica

The closest international airport to the self catering accommodation in Lake Arenal is to be found in the capital city of San Jose. Juan Santamaria International Airport (SJO). Unfortunately, there is no direct flight from the UK to this airport, and so options which involve connections in Los Angeles (LAX) might be considered. An example of this, is flying British Airways from London Heathrow (LHR) to LAX, and then taking a TACA airlines flight onwards.

The property description and pictures are exact as advertised. Thanks you for your superfast responses by emails. There are beautiful lake and mountain views from the house and casita and we loved sitting around and walking on the deck. The pool by the clubhouse is awesome with great views of Lake Arenal. The house was maintained spotless. This house is in a resort with round the clock security where there is an office with well maintained yard and trees and flowers around the resort property with other similar type octagonal villas. This is a high end house especially in Costa Rica. I would surely recommend this house to anybody wanting to rent a house around Arenal area. The amenities in the house are 5 stars. There is a full kitchen with 6 burner stove, Granite countertop,dish washer,Microwave, DVD/Satellite TV, WII console, Broadband Internet with a Laptop Computer for use by guests. And most of all great big showerheads with 24 hrs hot water. The linens and towels and all the items provided were high class. There is also a First Aid kit which I have not seen in any houses I have rented anywhere. George gave us exact details on the house and activities nearby and the office also helped in guiding us with directions and activities etc. There is maid service available. The maid is the private cook and the same person cleans and does laundry for you if needed. It’s a good way to pamper yourself when on vacation. The house is kid friendly with high chair, munchkin inflatable bath tub, and flat aero bed if needed. Overall we had the best and relaxing time in Costa Rica. I will surely rent it again on my next visit.
