Description of the Fortuna vacation home rental
Welcome to real life in rural Costa Rica! If you and your family are seeking a vacation spot where you can enjoy the every day charms of Costa Rican living, your search has ended! Our family home located in a small town of about 80 families overlooks the soccer field, the rural church, and the Venado Valley below. Local attractions include: the Venado Caves (about 15 min drive), La Fortuna town (about 45 min drive), and of course, the quintessential Arenal Volcano.
Downstairs the home features a wrap around deck with comfortable hammocks and outside living space. Inside you will find a fully equipped large kitchen with a 6 burner range and a small bathroom. The local vegetable truck comes once a week so if you inform us beforehand, for an added fee we'll make sure your kitchen has plenty of fresh tropical fruits and vegetables. There are two small bedrooms downstairs; one has a double with a bunk bed and the other has a single bed. Upstairs you will find the master suite with a handcarved queen bed with an attached balcony and a large bathroom. Most typical Costa Rican bathrooms do not have a bathtub and this house doesn't either, but on the other hand we do offer hot water! Outside on the 2 acre property you can walk down to the creek or hang out in the barn. Horses, dogs, cows, pigs, or chickens are available upon request (you can laugh now!). Honestly, we will work with your preferences; our only hope is that you enjoy our custom-made hardwood home as much as we do every year!
Area Information
The closest hotel is called The Springs Resort which was featured in The Bachelor a couple of seasons ago. The locals call this hotel "El Proyecto" because the owners made roads, bridges, hot water springs, and even a small zoo within their property. Our home is located in Linda Vista; you can see that on the Springs' map they have googlesatellite imagery for only their immediate area. Click on the map link in The Springs Resort page and then zoom out for 3 clicks, then move the map Northward. You will see Santa Eulalia and then Linda Vista. Note that we do not have satellite imagery for our area.
You do not need a 4x4 to get to our home if you drive from Highway 4 to Venado. Even though on GoogleMaps it does not show it, there is a nicely paved road from highway 4 to Venado. If you choose to drive to the Springs, however, a good 4x4 is recommended.
As well as all the local attractions listed on the Springs' site, we can help you interact with the locals' festivals, fishing, agriculture, cabalgatas, or other cultural events.
