Rainbow Bay Estates
Tennis and Marina
Nuevo Arenal, Costa Rica
Welcome to our community web site. For those who know the wonderful Lake Arenal region, most agree that Rainbow Bay Estates has the finest living spot on the entire lake. We have the best weather, security, large bird and monkey populations, and the largest colony of Oropendola hanging bird nests we've heard of. This website shares our story and attributes, and we thank you for checking us out.
We're a 13 year-old residential community on 33 acres overlooking the heart of Rainbow Bay. With many new owners, there's lots of vitality and investment underway. We have 9 condos and a small guest house on the lakeshore, a 14 -boat modular dock, a member’s area, and 19 single-family ‘lake-view’ lots on the hills above.
Lake Arenal is one of the world's most stunning fresh water lakes. It abounds in tropical delights, with ideal year-round air and water temperatures. Living anywhere around Lake Arenal is magical, but the Rainbow Bay area is one of the finest locations of all. While the lake's eastern half gets the most rain (cloud forest effect) and its western end the strongest winds, its northwest shore by Rainbow Bay gets the best weather of all. This weather explains why and how.
We're surrounded by dense jungle with rich flora and fauna on all sides. We have a low-density design with thousands of mature ornamental plants and fruit trees for a 'garden of eden' feel. After thirteen years of care, our flowers and fruit trees attract many birds, including the largest hanging bird nest colony of Oropendola birds in Costa Rica. Each year, over one hundred 4'-long hanging bird nests adorn a large tree by our condos. We enjoy frequent howler and white-face monkeys too.
Our buildings are built with quality materials and workmanship. You won't find cheap metal studs, drywall or masonite here. Everything is built to stand the test of time, and it shows.
Our member's area has stunning plants and flowers, and always bird and monkey sounds. By the pool are 2 tennis courts, a party-room, and covered barbecue area. One tennis court is covered so tennis can be played all year. Our high-tech composite dock can handle 14 boats.
We are very private and secure. Our electronic is locked each day at 3pm. Our half-mile entrance drive winds down steep hills and ravines to dead-end at the lake. It's lined with exotic plants and flowers, and when you descend, the sounds of man fade away. Yet with steep hills, thick jungle and amazing nature all around, the quaint town of Nuevo Arenal is just 5 minutes away.
Many new members have joined us recently. Since 2012, four condos, three houses and three lots have sold. With these recent sales, four new homes are starting in 2014. At this rate, Rainbow Bay Estates will be sold out in a couple of years. Two lots, two condos and a spec house are currently for sale.
No place on Lake Arenal has the consistent weather, abundant nature and easy lake access that we have - why best. So if you like to boat, fish, swim, kayak, bike, play tennis, hike or enjoy monkeys and birds, please contact us. And if you want to change your lifestyle to live longer, you should definitely contact us.
