About Charlotte Walker
My wife and I have been vacationing in Costa Rica for over 20 years. We originally came here for the sport fishing but over time have enjoyed many of the other things that Costa Rica has to offer. Along with friends and family we've been to the mountains, taken birding tours, been scuba diving and tried plenty of other activities. Our kids have grown up coming here and bringing their friends. We're an active middle-aged couple who enjoy Costa Rica for all that the country has to offer! We encourage you to join us!
Charlotte Walker purchased this House in 2008
Why Charlotte Walker chose El Cerro
We looked at a number of properties before choosing Casa Carolina. My wife gave the thumbs down on everything. Then one day when I was down here fishing I had our realtor take me through the front door of Casa Carolina, which went by another name at the time. When I saw the magnificent ocean view I blurted out "I'll take it"! My wife arrived the next day and agreed that this was to be our Costa Rica home away from home! Being from South Carolina, we felt that Casa Carolina was the proper name. We've never regretted our decision and hope that you will enjoy your stay in our little slice of paradise! Pura Vida as we say in Costa Rica!
What makes this House unique
When I am asked why should someone stay at Casa Carolina I simply refer them to the many 5-Star reviews and tell them to read our guest's comments. That's why you should stay! Our staff quickly becomes like family and many of our guests are repeats!

Want a REAL vacation?? THIS is the place to go!!
Just returned from our SECOND trip staying at this property. AHHHHHHHH. This is a true vacation!! No hustle and bustle! No worries! No schedule!! Just relaxation!The location is perfect. The scenery is to die for. The pool and the outdoor living spaces are fabulous. A few days we never left the property!! Didn't need to! But that's only half of what makes this property so special. Willy, Saul, and Elizabeth are the heart of this property. They are so welcoming and treated us like family on both trips. There was 18 months between trips. They remembered so many details about our family. We were so glad to see them and catch up. Willy is always ready to schedule whatever activities you're interested in and will show up with random treats for the whole family. Saul and Elizabeth are great cooks and gave some of us lessons on how to make our favorite dishes. It was so much fun!!The house is so comfortable and well-appointed and the loving personalities of Willy, Elizabeth, and Saul are just icing on the cake. I've recommended this home to so many of my friends. Can't wait till next---yes, there will be a next time!!!
Great house and location. The staff was wonderful!
Elizabeth, Saul, Willy, Mischi and all of the staff were spectacular. All were professional, friendly and personable. The house and pool were fantastic. They made great recommendations for meals and excursions and we had a great trip.
Do not hesitate to book this property, it is truly incredible and will exceed your expectations!
This house, "Casa Carolina" is actually a sprawling estate, inside and out! You cannot tell, from the pictures, how grand it really is. You are behind a locked gate, then up a long driveway before you even see the house. Beautiful architecture, well maintained, & so clean it's ridiculous. (the staff you will love, like all the other reviewers say, are there daily & will get you groceries, a "tab" is run for the week then you settle up when you leave, it makes being in Costa Rica so easy & enjoyable, just do it, they're hospitality pros.)
We were a group of 6, 4 adults & 2 teenage girls. The house could have easily accommodated twice that and still would have felt more than comfortable. If you stay in the separate, but still under the same outdoor roofline, "chicky suite", you'll probably be awoken by the 6am-ish troop of monkeys landing on the roof. It's so cool, just incredible to experience, so get up, get your coffee and sit outside under the covered patio with your binoculars and watch all the nature around you.
Staying at this house and all it offers for everyone in your group is just unbelievable!
One of the best vacations we've ever been on!!!
Eleven wonderful fun friendships were made!!! Casa Carolina and team were the absolute best, amazing fresh fish dinners, in home spa, white water rafting with fresh fruit and a water fall stop, beautiful beaches, souvenirs, off shore and in shore fishing, dining at the local restaurants and marina, sunset catamaran, monkeys, and just a blessing that we were able to experience Costa Rica!!!
Susan thank you so much for the fabulous review! We are delighted that you and your friends had such an enjoyable stay at Casa Carolina. I will pass along your kind comments to our staff!
Many adventure tours are available including world class fishing, Rainforest Canopy Ziplining, Surfing, Bird Watching, and lots of visiting Monkeys!
