Prostor

When we bought this lot 3 years ago, I described the view as “The most beautiful view I had ever seen." Standing on the property...about 3 acres...the Arenal Volcano dominated the landscape. And in the same view, there was Lake Arenal...not to be outdone, in front of the lower part of the volcano, was the jungle...with a river, sight unseen, singing it's song 24/7. We bought the property the day we saw it. We built a beautiful contemporary home, with what you would expect in an American home...on demand hot water in every room, American plumbing where you can actually flush the toilet paper, screens on the windows and fans on the ceilings. The bedroom is air conditioned, although in the 1.5 years we have been here we have never needed it. Fresh air is welcomed into the house so inside or out you can take advantage of the amazing Costa Rica weather. Come along on a verbal tour.

After you park your car in the carport, you will walk through the first of 7 hand carved doors (all designed from photos the owner has taken.) You are astounded by the view provided by the floor to ceiling glass walls that let you be a part of nature. Your dining room table is hand made from a tree trunk slab as the top and a root section as the base. The kitchen features a gas stove with 2 ovens, a large refrigerator/freezer, a walk-in pantry, coffee maker, rice maker, blender, mixer, food processor, toaster and most every other gadget you will need to cook absolutely fabulous meals. Your flat screen TV (with a satellite connection and some English programming) can be watched from the leather couch or from two comfortable chairs with ottomans. The chairs swivel 180 degrees to let you look outside through the floor to ceiling tinted windows while reading or relaxing. Your terrace wraps around the house giving you perfect views of Arenal Volcano, Lake Arenal, Arenal National Park and the Children's Eternal Rainforest. A stairway leads to a private tropical garden with walking paths for you to enjoy the plantings and fauna. There you will find banana trees, wonderful eatable red hibiscus you can pick for your salads or tea, many flowering tropical plants, hummingbirds, flycatchers as well as tanagers...a wonderful place to linger. Back through the house there is a tiled carport (another nice place to sit and relax) with completely different views. As part of the first floor amenities there is a full size guest bath with a '"hot water" shower and beautiful glass art-deco sink.

Heading upstairs to your bedroom, you will find a Queen size bed (both the bed and mattress are new this year.) You have another flat screen TV with Satellite connections. Your bedroom has a walk out covered terrace, a perfect place for sunrise and sunset, as well as a cup of coffee,or tea, or a glass of wine. Wake to the sunrise lighting the volcano with amazing colors. Watch the clouds rise from the forest floor (we are at the 2400 foot dividing line between the rain forest and cloud forest). Your view from the upstairs terrace takes in the jungle, lake and volcano. Your bath has an wonderful walk-in rain shower that blesses your body with spring water, heated by an on-demand water heater. There is a walk-in closet for your use as well.

Without even starting your car, you will be able to walk to our private waterfall, (we even have boots you can wear), hike the Monkey man Trail where we see monkeys about 60% of the time during an early morning walk, walk our under development trail that leaves the back of our garden off the terrace and goes down the big hill and into the Jungle...go horseback riding and/or rent kayaks through Parrot Hill, walk to supper at a wonderful restaurant (Agustin's Restaurant at Nepenthe), hike and watch the wildlife. We have been visited by three kinds of toucans, howler monkeys as well as spider monkeys, and have our "white hawks" circling. Many birds and insects can be found if you take the time to look. Otherwise a snuggle on the terrace, catch a quiet moment of serenity, or catch up on that book you have wanted to read. The air is fresh and clean, the water is tasty, and the setting is amazing.

Dostupno gostima

PLEASE NO SMOKING IN THE HOUSE OR ON THE TERRACE. If there is the smell of cigarettes, Pipes or cigars anywhere, your entire security deposit will be forfeited and you may be billed for additional cleaning. We are renting you our home, and since we also live here, we have locked off our master suite and our office. The laundry is also locked off, but if you need laundry done, we will do it for you for a reasonable rate per pound. Just ask. There is a locked outside door where personal tools and supplies are kept. If you need something fixed, ask. Someone will give you a hand. Please, enjoy our home. Please feel free to roam everywhere. We love garden visitors, the paths you see are all available for your use, even outside of our area. walk to our private waterfall, to the jungle (but remember, it is a jungle with bugs, snakes and critters). If you are walking off the roads and trails, wear the tall rubber boots, long pants take a walking stick and be careful. This is NOT a walk in the city park.

Interakcija s gostima

It is unlikely we will be nearby while you are here, but you can reach us anytime by email if there are problems or something is not to your satisfaction. We do have a manager, Edwardo, right up the hill from you. He has lived in Costa Rica his whole life, he speaks English and owns the B&B at Parrot Hill. You will will be greeted when you arrive and checked you out as you depart. Each morning, at a time you select in advance, our cook/housekeeper will prepare breakfast for you. The fruit will be largely organic, the eggs from free range chickens, milk, if desired fresh. Coffee will be Costa Rica grown. Lemon Grass Tea is available on request...of course grown in our garden. Edwardo will also help you make reservations for any activities you want to participate in...Zip Lining, hanging Bridges, rafting, kayaking, hiking, eating, hot springs and much more. Use thim, as he knows the very best places for any activity you want to participate in...and you pay exactly the same price if you try to do it yourself or have them do it for you. Edwardo is available by phone, text or a short walk away. You can also drive up the driveway to their house. You will find a red binder in the house when you arrive. Inside you will find everything you need, telephone numbers, locations, names, information on how the house works, lists of our favorite places to eat, play and visit. You can spend a lot of time in this area and still have more to see and do. They will not come to you while you are here unless you ask, and Lillian will be here only to do her housekeeping duties.

Ostale napomene

Please remember, we are only set up for 2 guests. You will have lots of room to do as you wish. You have neighbors...two B&B's each about 2 blocks away. There are no shades on any of the windows, so we tend to go to bed early and rise early. The views are just too magnificent to cover with cloth. And no one is near you to see in anyway. Please consider a 4WD vehicle. the 10KM road from the paved road leading to the Arenal National Park entrance is gravel and often rutted and if raining, it will be muddy. On this road you will pass the park entrance and drive about 8KM almost to El Castillo. then a 1.2KM drive to our house. That road is up hill and also often challenging, especially in wet weather. Can it be done with a small sedan...probably, but you will be a lot happier with a 4WD vehicle.

One more thing...if you drive from San Jose airport, plan on 4.5 hours minimum to arrive at our house. YOU DO NOT WANT TO DRIVE AT NIGHT, ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE NEVER BEEN TO COSTA RICA BEFORE. So plan to arrive at the airport by Noon. We know, looking at a map, that you believe you can get here a lot quicker...trust us. We have made the trip many times and it takes 4 to 4.5 hours to get here. Let us know your flight plans as soon as you can. If you cannot arrive by 6PM, consider spending a night near the airport or part way here in San Ramon.

This place was everything we could have imagined for our honeymoon. The home and views are spectacular. You have everything you need right there at the house and John and Susan did a fantastic job communicating very important and helpful travel tips during the months leading up to our stay. Lillian's daily breakfasts were amazing and she is the sweetest person ever. We took advantage of hiking the private waterfall and nearby Monkey Man trail. The shower is AMAZING. The jaw dropping view of volcán Arenal was hard to take your eyes off of. Thank you Kohn and Susan for a very memorable and perfect start to our honeymoon. We hope to return in the future for an anniversary trip.

Great romantic spot with a drive that makes you work for the privacy; but is beyond worth it once you arrive. 4 wheel drive was absolutely necessary and the hosts do a great job getting you set up for anything you could need. They sent several emails with great recommendations and what to expect. We will definitely be back!!

First, roads were very different than expected yet safe. When we arrived, lily greeted us and explained what was available to us. The views of volcán arenal were breathtaking! Downstairs the home provided a Glass panoramic view in the living room and kitchen area to enjoy while eating. Lily's breakfast was delicious! In that area you can access the patio, which was beyond what we could ask for. We spent most our time out there to enjoy the simplicity of nature! The rooms and bathrooms were very well kept and clean. Do keep in mind when we booked sunrise was about 4:30am and sunset was about 6pm. The fog and rain decreased our visibility 2 days, so keep in mind when venturing out. Plan accordingly. Overall, the stay in this home was a wonderful experience. Would definitely recommend if you'd like to get great views of nature. Also DeLoyd is very informative and the communication was amazing. - Rosy Salazar

Hi Rosy and Scottie...Glad you loved our home and enjoyed your stay. It can rain...we are in the rain/cloud forest, but as you discovered that is not reason not to enjoy. Wish we had control of the weather. Even in the rainy season most of the mornings are beautiful, and the majority of the rain is at night. Thanks for staying and thanks for your kind words about our home and area. DeLoyd and Susan

If you don't want being "away from it all" (or most of "it" anyway) in a gorgeous setting, White Hawk is for you. While a healthy, challenging drive from paved Route 142, which is why a 4WD is a must, White Hawk was a spectacular place to spend several days. The house itself is great, with views of the volcano, lake and rain forest from virtually every room...floor to ceiling glass in the living room...you want to grab your camera every other minute. Lillian makes great breakfasts every day and Eduardo helps you make reservations at area attractions. The wifi in the home worked fine and cell service was good. The personal touches in the home were fabulous and the home and gardens evidenced real personal attention (and style). The owners communicated extensively before our visit and provided exceptional tips and directions up front. There are numerous restaurants, cafes and attractions nearby. Try the ziplining at SKY and visit the Butterfly Conservancy. Bring your own provisions, as suggested. We highly recommend this lovely home and would love to return some day. Thank you, John and Susan!!

John and Susan proved to be so helpful, I could barely believe it. They provided my husband and I with such detailed information about the trip, including what to do when you got off the plane, where to eat, and the exact roads to turn on to get to their house. Which, trust me, you'll NEED the directions!! **Also, (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps was our hero a couple of times, use it if you can!** Unfortunately the weather did not work in our favor and we had to leave early, but that had nothing to do with their lovely house or this wonderful couple. We would love to return sometime!!

BOOK IT. What an amazing place to stay!! Romantic, private, beautiful. Why stay in hotel room, when you can stay at the Whitehawk. Highlights: Incredible view of Arenal and on the edge of the wild jungle. Beautiful house, home, with full kitchen, lovely porches, comfortable bed, and awesome shower. Host and cook to give you breakfast on the terrace, and book any sort of excursion. We took all the advice from the owners, but could have filled another week with activities, and wish we would have. You'll want a rental car, and Susan's directions, even with a GPS. Restaurants, stores, etc are easier gotten to by car. You'll have a full kitchen and all the amenities, so being at the house was our favorite. Best for two people. We loved Mistico, zorbing, horseback riding/hike to waterfall. Los Lagos(zip lining, hot springs, dinner) the house, the view, the garden, Restaurants:Pheonix, pizza Johns (took it back to the house for sunset) Great communication. We hope to return. Thank You!

Thanks so much for your kind words. When you love a place as much as we love White Hawk, it is special when someone loves our home and area as much as we do. So glad you felt at home and felt welcome and enjoyed yourselves. And any time you want to come back and enjoy that week of things to do and places to see, feel free to come back. We would love to have you as guests again...

Whitehawk is absolutely amazing! It is such a unique place to stay. The hosts have gorgeous art everywhere, a lovely garden and panoramic views from every window. My husband and I felt constantly surrounded by beauty. Shower and bed were wonderful. Even though our hosts were not there they made sure we were taken care of by Eduardo and Lillian who made the best breakfast for us every morning. John was honestly the most communicative helpful host I have ever had. He emailed me several months before to give me through information on the area and his property as well as being very quick to respond to last minute questions. Its easy to see how the hosts are ingrained in the community because everywhere we went the locals were estatic about where we were staying. The location is perfect and close to a variety of outdoor and indoor activites. Staying here made our honeymoon absolutely perfect!

Thanks for staying with us and thanks for spending your honeymoon with us as well...have a happy and wonderful life together...

Susan and I are retired. We love to travel, and about 3 years ago spent 8 weeks in Costa Rica. We fell in love with the climate, the people, the wildlife, the peace and quiet, the escape from the hectic pace and political fighting of the US. 2 days before we left, we discovered what I described as "The most beautiful place I had ever seen." there was a piece of property for sale and the day before we left, we made a commitment to buy. A year later we began construction (we blog about the building process at (treefi The house is pretty much finished and we decided to share our unique property and home with select others...sorry, only two at a time. We continue writing about Costa Rica and Florida and other times and places (tree John is a serious photographer and Costa Rica is a photographer's paradise. While John snaps the camera, it is Susan who provides an amazing eye, sighting birds, noticing flowers, seeing things that will make beautiful photos well before John sees them.
