A beautiful lake cabin close to La Fortuna city center. About a 15 minute drive to downtown. This was the second Airbnb we were staying at in our trip to Costa Rica. We were dropped off in a near by hotel managed by the same owners as the cabin. That was perfect because every taxi driver knew where it was located.
Our host was amazing and very friendly. He was prompt to answer any questions and gave great advise as far as to where to eat and what tours to do. We arrived earlier than check in and he was ready to meet us at the hotel. Then took us to the cabin and gave us a tour. He gave us his number and said to call for anything anytime.
One of my worries was that the cabin would be in the middle of no where and it would be dark and dangerous. But no worries! It was on a main road but sat back far enough to not hear much sound. On the left side of the pond sits both cabins and on the right is the home of the property owners.
When you walk into the home, you walk into the living room and the kitchen to the left. The kitchen is fully stocked with all cooking amenities. The living room has sliding doors and windows. What a beautiful view! The drapes let you see out but not in during the day.
The bedroom is behind the living room. Kind of small but we didn’t need much more. Most importantly the bed was comfortable. The bedroom also had a sliding window with pond view. Between the bedroom and kitchen was the bathroom.
We were there for three days and wished we could have stayed longer. It was our favorite place. It was so breathtaking beautiful, our host was beyond nice, it was in a convenient location and it was cost friendly.
Our host let us know the property owners in the house across would make breakfast for the guests for a small fee. We took the offer and were so glad we did. We ended up asking for breakfast again the next morning. We walked up and they greeted us so friendly. The little table was set outside to enjoy the views. The breakfast was traditional food from Costa Rica. Gallo pinto which is rice and beans. Scrambled eggs, avocado, toast, cheese, tortilla with sauce. The best coffee ever and orange juice.
One of the days the owner was nice enough to give us a ride into La Fortuna on his way to work. For the rest we took taxis. We also took an ATV tour recommended by the Airbnb host, we loved the tour. He picked us up and had the tour guide drop us off. Everyone is so nice and glad to help out.
The day we left the host picked us up and took us to the main hotel. There we waited for our bus to pick us up.
I can’t wait to return! Pura Vida!!!!!
