Rainbow Bay Estates
Tennis and Marina
Nuevo Arenal, Costa Rica
Welcome to our community web site. For those in the know about the Lake Arenal region, most agree that Rainbow Bay Estates has the finest living spot on the entire lake. We have the best weather and security, large bird and monkey populations, and the largest colony of Oropendola hanging bird nests in Costa Rica. This website will share more about why.
We're an 12 year-old residential community on 33 acres overlooking the heart of Rainbow Bay. We're a proven community with lots of vitality and investment underway. We have 9 condos and a small guest house on the lakeshore, a 15-boat modular dock, a nearby 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 air and water temperatures year-round. Living anywhere around Lake Arenal is magical, but the Rainbow Bay area is the finest location of all. While the lake's eastern half gets the most rain (cloud forest effect) and its western end gets the strongest winds, its northwest shore area by Rainbow Bay gets the best weather of all. This weather shows why and how.
We're surrounded by dense jungle with rich flora and fauna on all sides. We have a low-density design where thousands of mature ornamental plants and fruit trees to create a true 'garden of eden' look and feel. After twelve years of care, our flowers and fruit trees attract huge quantities of birds, including the largest hanging bird next colony of Oropendola birds anywhere in Costa Rica. In 2012 we had 122 4'-long hanging bird nests in a tree by our condos - 104 nests in 2013. We enjoy frequent visits by howler and white-face monkeys too.
Our buildings are solidly built with quality materials and workmanship that shows. You won't find cheap metal studs, drywall or masonite here. Everything was 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 a covered barbecue area. One tennis court is covered so tennis can be played all year. Our high-tech composite dock can handle 15 boats.
We are very private and secure. Our electronic is locked each day at 5pm. Our half-mile entrance drive winds down steep hills and ravines to dead-end at the lake. It's lined the entire way with exotic plants and flowers, and when you descend, the sounds of humans fade away. Yet with steep hills, jungle and amazing nature all around us, Nuevo Arenal is just 5 minutes away.
A diverse group of members have owned here for years. Age and life changes now have some looking to sell. Since 2012, three 3-bedroom condos, a 2-bedroom condo, a member's house and a developer's spec house have sold. 2 lots, 2 condos and another spec house are 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 need to change your life so you'll live longer, you should definitely contact us.
