rental - Casa Fuerte
Built in 2012, this 135 sq m house, inspired by Huf Haus, is constructed solidly of steel, rebar block,
structural concrete and glass, and sits on a 1,340 sq m lot (approx 1/3 acre). Large, high quality Europa
sliding doors and 10mm tempered glass windows offer 180 degree, uninterrupted views of Lake Arenal
and the Arenal, Tenorio and Miravalles volcanos. Two large bedrooms comprise a master and guest both
with en-suite bathrooms, one with full size bath and the other with a wet room shower. Both bedrooms
have large fitted closets. The open plan living/dining/kitchen with walk-in pantry has high vaulted ceilings
creating a light, airy living space. The wide "floating" balcony affords spectacular views of the Lake and
surrounding volcanoes. On the ground floor is a large office, laundry room, half-bathroom and security
closet. A large floor to ceiling sliding door opens onto the lake facing patio area.!
Outside there is a large attached car port with power and water. A spacious and secure bodega is built
into the rear of the house for extra storage. The landscaped gardens have been designed for low
maintenance with a large paved area constructed with locally quarried, beautifully colored stone to the
front of the house, a raised bed planting area to the side and rear and easy to maintain surrounding
lawns. The newly landscaped gardens have been planted with a variety of palms, passion fruit, avocado
and grapefruit trees. More photos and a video tour are available at!
The house is located in a secluded and peaceful area above San Luis, two minutes from the paved road
and only ten minutes drive away from the charming market town of Tilaran. The international airport at
Liberia is approximately one and a half hour drive away on major roads and the capital San Jose, with
Costa Rica's other international airport, and the city's major shopping area, Escazu, is approximately a 3
hour drive. Coco, Hermosa, Flamingo and the Guanacaste beaches are a couple of hours drive away. !
The house sits in an open environment and offers lush scenery with plentiful bird and wildlife on your
doorstep. A myriad of leisure activities are close by and there is a cosmopolitan community with helpful
neighbors, both Tico and Gringo. There are several of the best restaurants within easy reach and a very
popular bi-monthly Feria (farmers' market) within walking distance. Less than 1km away is the Puerto
San Luis Yacht Club offering a swimming pool, boat launch and marina facility providing easy access to
boating, fishing, waterskiing, and kayaking. For the more adventurous, at the top of the Lake is Tico
Wind, world famous as a top wind surfing and kite boarding centre. Further afield at La Fortuna are world
class hot spring resorts, canopy tours and zip lining.!
