About the property

Mountain and Lake View Entire House 4/2 on North Side of Lake Arenal

Central location (between Liberia airport and La Fortuna) to activities from volcanos and Zip lining to Cloud forests and Monte Verde.

Excellent value when compared to similar homes in the area. Take advantage of the 10% discount by staying 1 week.

Casa Isabelita is a brand new, secluded, cozy and contemporary home that sits in a private gated community within walking distance of Lake Arenal. This cozy home sits in a quiet guarded community, in the middle of a forest. Excellent place for "earthing" an "forest bathing". The surroundings will help you detoxify from your day to day. Many of our guests mention a peaceful and restful night's sleep. We have experienced the same and appreciate it very much. We want to share that with you. Go out to adventures and come home to a serene space, away from crowds.

Equipped with a security system, Free WiFi, cableTV, AC, fully equipped kitchen, washer/dryer, 4 bedrooms & 5 beds. The area has restaurants, a bank, gas station and convenience stores. Arenal volcano, hot springs, Rio Celeste,& Zip lining activities, all within 45 to 90 min drive. Playas (beaches) Del Coco and Hermosa are 1.5 hours away by the Liberia airport. 2 hr drive to Monteverde.

The moment you enter the home the energy is peaceful and serene. We are located inside a private community with a security guard. The community is off the main road 142. The house is 45 minutes from the tourist sections of La Fortuna and it has more of a local quiet homey cozy feel. As you get into the main entrance you will encounter some sections paved and some on gravel or unpaved. It is part of the beauty of the area. Plan for a 10 min drive to the nearest restaurant, El Corral Steak house in Aguacate (where the house is). Rio Piedras, to the west, and Nuevo Arenal, to the east, have several local Tico restaurants as well. Most activities are in La Fortuna, 40 minutes from the house. Wild life is experienced and appreciated around the house property and surroundings. Howler monkeys and beautiful birds are heard and seen in our backyard. The main floor opens to a spacious kitchen with granite countertops, beautiful cabinetry, modern appliances, kitchen cookware and all you need to prepare family meals. The tap water is safe but we added a water filter as well. There is also a dining table, living room space with comfortable couches and a bathroom on this floor. Clean towels and toiletry is provided. The showers have hot water on demand. There are ceiling fans and AC throughout the home. The upstairs floor has 2 large bedrooms and a small bedroom. The master bedroom opens to a balcony that allows you to enjoy your morning coffee/tea (provided) while contemplating the lake views and hearing and seeing many different types of birds, like the toucans for example. There is a second bathroom on this floor as well. The bottom floor has a 4th bedroom, ceiling to floor glass panels/walls. The guests have expressed their total satisfaction to open their eyes in the morning and feel they are in the middle of the forest with the greenery that can be appreciated in this room. There is an AC unit on this floor as well. The house accommodates large families of up to 8 guests. Baby playpen and air mattresses are also available. Located in a quiet family oriented private guarded community. Totally connected to nature, this home sits in the middle of a "bosque". Casa Isabelita is a well maintained and clean home for you to completely enjoy your visit. There are several beautiful beaches in Guanacaste on the Pacific coast. We love Playa Tamarindo, Playa Conchal, Playa del Coco and playa hermosa, which are about 1.5 to 2 hours west from the house. Casa Isabelita is 1.5 hours from (LIR) Liberia airport and 3 hours from SJO (San Jose/Alajuela) airport.

The community infinity pool is available to the guests until 7pm. It can be accessed by walking to the backyard of the house and following the walking trail 30 meters from the house. It can also be accessed by car by going thru the guard house. The marina is about 500 meters within walking distance from the house. 2 large Kayaks are available to our guests for no cost. The community has 24 hour Security. Both owner and property manager are readily accessible. You can check out our page on F.B. "Casa Isabelita Costa Rica". You can share your pictures and also see restaurants and places we have visited under the "About/Following" section. We welcome your pictures.

About Jennie Cruz

My husband was born in Costa Rica and studied culinary arts. I am from Puerto Rico and love family and nature. We truly enjoy our home with your family. Welcome.

Jennie Cruz purchased this house in 2016

Why Jennie Cruz chose Tierras Morenas

We love Costa Rica and specially the Lake Arenal area. Beautiful forest, lake and wonderful people. We appreciate being around nature in a quiet and serene place. Casa Isabelita has given us the opportunity to experience this tranquility.

What makes this house unique

The lake view from the front balcony is panoramic. But it is the quietness and stillness that we adore in this home.

Un lugar pura vida

  • 4 of 5

Mi familia y yo quedamos encantados con casa Isabelita, este lugar es todo lo que se necesita para renovar energías. Es sumamente cómodo y acogedor y la vista que tiene al lago desde el balcón es impresionante. Agradecemos la hospitalidad con que fuimos recibidos, en especial el que nos dejaran unas deliciosas frutas para nuestro deleite.

Sin duda alguna, mi familia y yo hemos tomado este lugar como referencia ya que nos encanta visitar esta zona al menos una vez al año.
