Property description

Reduced Pricing until December 31, 2014. Take $100 off of the price of a one week rental. Shorter terms are 10% off. Take advantage of these rates to visit one of the most beautiful homes in the Lake Arenal area. Casa Esmeralda is a lovely well-maintained three bedroom, three bathroom Mediterranean style villa, located above Lake Arenal in the Guanacaste highlands of Costa Rica. The view is one of the most spectacular in Costa Rica that features ever changing colors as clouds pass high above the lake and surrounding mountains. The home was recently renovated and refurnished to be put back on the rental market after several years of exclusively private use. It features a spacious, covered terrace for morning coffee, afternoon cocktails and conversation anytime. There are four comfortable 'Tico' rockers on the porch for your relaxation. The home has satellite TV, DVD player, telephone and WiFi, in case you feel the need to stay in touch. The home is fully air conditioned, but this is rarely needed with our mild temperatures and gentle mountain breezes. The kitchen is well equipped with new appliances. The dining room seats eight and features dramatic lake and mountain views. The laundry room is conveniently located off the kitchen and is equipped with a washer and dryer. Each of the two main bedrooms comfortably sleeps two adults. The third bedroom is equipped with a futon for children or additional adults.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2001

About: The house is owned by a North American family. The extended family members vacation at the house whenever their schedules permit.

Why Arenal:
The owners were vacationing in Costa Rica. Overwhelmed by the view from the house and the surrounding area, they purchased the house without concrete plans. It has been one of their best decisions.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is conveniently located right off the main road and only a few minutes from Nuevo Arenal. The area is a vacationer's paradise that offers a variety of activities unique to Costa Rica. The house is entirely air conditioned for any 'outdoor challenged' visitors.
