We absolutely LOVED staying at Arenal Luxury Paradise!! The photo on VRBO doesn't do it justice; the trees and plants have grown up beautifully and you have your own tropical grove surrounding the house. It's a brilliant remake of a sea container with a lovely expansion to make a covered deck with private Jacuzzi, plus covered parking and laundry room. The interior is naturally small but well fitted with lovely hardwood floors and woodwork, a comfortable bed, all you need in the kitchen and bathroom, a good shower. Absolutely great lodging for a couple! We really enjoyed sitting on the deck and watching the bird feeding station - saw some great birds right there! Lorenzo put out bananas every day to attract the birds and we added some of our own mangoes. It's very close to La Fortuna to access restaurants etc but out of town so it's peaceful. The nearby neighborhood also offers some good birding opportunities, but best of all is that Lorenzo and his father have a private nature reserve about half a mile away, and he will take you there to see what they've done to covert a cattle farm into a tropical paradise with little streams, ponds, tropical fruits and flowers, pollinator bee "hotels", gravel paths. It's amazing and so beautiful! - a haven for a huge variety of birds and wildlife and a delight for humans. We made several trips there and saw both two-toed and three-toed sloths (one with a baby!), two kinds of poison dart frogs, black-mandibled toucans nesting, tent-making bats, a green basilisk, many more kinds of birds. We HIGHLY recommend this place!! It was the best!
