Our beautiful house is on a quiet, paved street. In the backyard is a meditation shala, a small stream, tropical birds, and tall trees. Two private bedrooms have queen beds; a spiral staircase leads to a large loft (3rd bdrm) with two twin beds (sleeps total of 6), and air mattress (sleeps 1), if needed. Perfect for families! An en-suite bathroom is in the master bedroom. Fully equipped kitchen includes a NEW washer/dryer. Enjoy!

The space
Hello and welcome to our lovely vacation home! Please locate the house guidebook on the entry table in the living room to answer most questions. Enjoy the books located under the TV (yoga magazines, travel, bird and nature books, as well as favorite paperbacks.) We also have many games including bocce/lawn bowling. We have an Amazon Fire Stick for movies/TV shows. A new DVD player and classic/favorite movies are stocked! **You will need to switch the HDMI cord connection in the back of the TV between the DVD player and Fire Stick since there is only one HDMI outlet on the back of the TV**
We have instant hot water so you should never run out!
Please be mindful of our spiral staircase and loft if you have little ones.

**IF YOU SIGN IN TO YOUR AMAZON ACCOUNT, PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO SIGN OUT. We have recently discovered Amazon Prime wouldn’t play BUT you can access Netflix and other subscriptions through the Firestick.

Where you’ll be

La Fortuna, Provincia de Alajuela, Costa Rica

The La Palma neighborhood consists of only a handful of private homes. We are related to the owner of Pure Trek Canyoning two doors down. They offer not only the most amazing adventure tour, but concierge service and my property management. This small community is also home to one of the most prestigious boutique spa resorts in Central/South America, Nayara Spa and Hotel, as recognized by Travel and Leisure magazine. There are also other luxurious hotels in our tract: Volcano Lodge, Manoa, and Arenal Springs Resort. And, a short drive will take you to The Springs Spa and Resort (as seen on The Bachelor!), where we offer a discounted two-day pass!

Restaurants in La Fortuna (a 10-minute drive) offer the most choices for food: Anchio and Lava Lounge are favorites!

La Fortuna offers so many adventure and leisure activities such as canyoning, hiking, kayaking, rafting, fishing, thermal-heated hot springs/spas, and farm to table cooking classes!

It is also the perfect location for other explorations: 3 hours to San Jose and 3 hours to the Pacific-side beaches. Let us know how we can help you enjoy all of Costa Rica!

I live and work in a beautiful mountain community. I am an elementary school teacher, as well as a part-time yoga instructor. I love to travel, but keep a vacation home in Costa Rica. We have kept our vacation home as a respite from our working lives but are now ready to share this amazing, peaceful place in La Fortuna. Five things I can't live without: my family, my yoga mat, my kindle, my morning cup of coffee, and Friday night sushi (date night with my hubby). I love music! All kinds: rock, jazz, classical, alternative, world, etc. Why do I have a vacation home in Costa Rica? Simple, their daily phrase in all social interactions: Pura Vida! (Pure life) and that is exactly what life is like in this beautiful place called Costa Rica.
