In front of the home, a pasture descends steeply to a cove formed by one of Tronadora's two farming peninsulas beyond which lies a 180-degree view of the 20-mile long lake. Across the lake can be seen the village of Aguacate and the town of Nuevo Arenal. A wall of glass panels protects the pool and large patio on breezy days.
