  • Description


    We're a small family from California who relocated and now call Beautiful Costa Rica home. We live a healthy, happy life with two kids, a few dogs and a mother in law who happily followed along. A lot of days were on the go adventuring around to the beach or hotsprings. After 8 years of living here we are still in Awe and so grateful to make roots here in our home. With Lake Arenal being such a central place you can do day trip to every location you would want to see. The buses are reliable and we are just steps away from the bus stop. The accommodations we offer are completely private including a full size bed, a bath/ shower and a kitchenette. You can hear so many birds singing and the howler monkeys even come to the trees in front of the house. Come have the Pura Vida experience with us.
