This lovely large 3000 sq. ft. home on Rainbow Bay, a protected cove of Lake Arenal, was the first one built by the developer. It has many rooms which include 2 ½ baths and 2 bedrooms (plus office that could be 3rd bedroom). The super high ceiling in bar and chimney area could EASILY be 2 more bedrooms upstairs if needed. The very large living area was used not only for a large living room with a fireplace, dining room and wide covered veranda, but has its own pool/billiards table section and office. All tiles are imported and the ceilings and some walls are built with local woods, cedar and almond beams.

This 3000 sq ft house was built before legislation was in place making it impossible since 10 years ago to duplicate its location, as far as LAKEFRONT is concerned. It is the ONLY house on the lake with PRIVATE ACCESS to the water and our dock. It is only .50 yards to tennis, pool and “monkey bar”.

The master bedroom is at the far end of the house with sliding glass doors to the veranda. There are also sliding glass doors with a separate entrance from the the kitchen to the veranda for quiet breakfasts outdoors. There is also a large BBQ grill on the veranda to use for outdoor meals. What fun it will be for you to entertain here on this quiet lake cove facing the boat dock and surrounded by attractive landscaping. Your guests will without a doubt experience “Pura Vida”in this lovely home.

The large master bedroom has a double-sink bathroom with an appealing hot tub for your relaxing enjoyment. Every detail of this home has been well thought out and it was built with the finest materials available. The Rainbow Bay location is only 5 minutes from the growing little town of Arenal. Rainbow Bay is the #1 gated community in Nuevo Arenal with grand homes and 9 attractive townhouses.

The beautiful tropical landscaping is always well cared for and includes many of our huge old growth trees of the area where wildlife exudes happiness by chirping and howling showing approval of the thoughtful way the developer planned this community. Many of the fruit trees are producing year round and the residents are welcome to take what pleases them.

The house comes with a free boat slip for our dock (maximum size of boat to dock = 23 ft.). This is the ONLY house on the lake with PRIVATE and DIRECT access to the water ( lake )….and 99 % of the year we eat outside on the terrace,as is protected by glass against wind and rain !

There is a yearly maintenance fee,incl.BASIC gardening,use of pool,tennis ranchitos (  monkey bar ) and electric gate,outside lighting,hauling of garbage ..$ 1500.- With this you can have use of the large covered, screened tennis court with a grandstand and special flooring, a large, crystal clear swimming pool with two ranchitos: one for BBQ parties with a table and grill and the Monkey Bar with exercise equipment and tables for playing cards, trading books from the library, having your drinks using the bar available or relaxing indoors. While inside you have a picture window facing the pool if you do not wish to swim. There is not much more one could have available for entertaining and enjoying our Pura Vida in Costa Rica.

After living across the road from Rainbow Bay 26 years, and knowing many of the residents there, I know once you visit this beautiful well-planned community, surrounded by exotic nature protected for residents, you will appreciate what a wonderful opportunity this would be for you.
