About John Hosemann
My name is Idalie and I was born and raised minutes away from Nuevo Arenal. After college I moved to the United States and have lived there for most of my adult life. After retirement, I bought this lovely property and lived here for many years until I decided to come back to the states to be closer to my grandchildren. My son, John, handles the correspondence and he's more than happy to answer any questions you may have. We hope you enjoy your stay!

Peaceful Getaway in Nuevo Arenal
We enjoyed our stay in beautiful Nuevo Arenal. The house is exactly as shown in the listing and has everything you’d need for a stay of any length.
The landscaping is spectacular with flowers and lots of beautiful plantings. The view of the surrounding mountains is gorgeous!
The beds are very comfortable and the kitchen has all the essentials. There is a large collection of DVDs and a very large TV.
The owner was quite accommodating of our special requests and made sure the house was cleaned with “free and clear” non-chemical products. He even provided unscented soap, laundry detergents and dish soap for our use.
It would be a good idea to ask Steve, the Manager, to send the location coordinates of the house via WhatsApp so you can use Waze to guide you. We would recommend planning to arrive before dark on your first day since the roads, while fully paved, are quite curvy.
Enjoy your stay - Pura Vida!
Beauty in the mountains
We had a wonderful time. A beautiful house with views of Lake Arenal. House was clean and very comfortable with two large bathrooms, a good kitchen and family room. We enjoyed relaxing on the porch each night after zip lining or hiking. Steve, the property manager was very helpful. A bit hard to find but it is the road across from Aqua Inn. Great stay!
I'm pleased all of you enjoyed your stay in Arenal, and I'm very appreciative of your kind words about the house. Thank you for bringing the driving directions to my attention, I will update them very soon and also create links for different mapping apps to send to future guests. Enjoy the rest of your trip!
Beautiful gardens and very appointed and comfortable home.
We really enjoyed our stay. Thank you for sharing your home with us. We were 5 adults and a preteen. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the property. We found it to be very comfortable. The view from the porch us picture perfect!
Excellent property that served our needs. Great views ample space and all the amenities
My wife and I loved the property and it had all the amenities any couple or large family or group would want. The area has so much to offer and this place gives you the opportunity to do so much. Cannot thank John enough for the use the help and to have the helping neighbors was a bonus.You can not go wrong this property.
This was nice we came here after three weeks from the hot Tamarindo area and finished of our last week to cool down and relax. This house is well equipped if you plan on cooking. The garden and lake view are like the picture you see so sweeeeet. You need to go to Fortuna and check out the tours available.
Exactly what we were looking for
Beautiful home and property looking over lake Arenal. It is just off the beaten path enough to feel some privacy and security. Bedrooms and bathrooms were nice and comfortable. Living room was convenient for hanging around with the family and had a bunch of movies. Kitchen worked well when we made our own meals. WiFi was a little slow (as it was nearly everywhere we visited in CR) but worked and worked well for what we needed. Also had covered parking and entry area which was nice for packing bags. Close to Nuevo Arenal where we were able to easily get groceries and food. Access to the lake just few minutes drive from the house. Also a little long and curvy but doable drive to La Fortuna where we went for tours such as zip lining, Arenal Volcano hike, hot springs, hanging bridges, white water rafting, Fortuna waterfall and a sloth tour. The neighbors Steve and Dianne were very nice and welcoming as they helped us get moved into the place and give us suggestions on what to do in the area. Would recommend this home.
