About Elaine Boyer

Our family built this dream home in Costa Rica for generations to come. We live in North Carolina and love spending time together as a family in our beautiful vacation home.

Elaine Boyer purchased this house in 2007

Why Elaine Boyer chose Costa Rica

After much research in surrounding countries, we found that Costa Rica has not only the most stable economic and political environment, but also is unrivaled in its beauty. Peninsula Papagayo is a prestigious gated, private community with a Four Seasons, Hyatt Andaz and spectacular Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Course.

What makes this house unique

Renting our home provides unique privacy in an upscale setting. Listening to the waves breaking on the beach below us, sit back at the infinity pool or in the gazebo and enjoy the monkeys, birds and butterflies. Play a round of golf on the Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Course and enjoy ocean views on 14 holes. Relax at Prieta Beach Club, complete with a lap pool, children's pool, hot tub and fitness center. Indulge in Costa Rican delicacies at many upscale restaurants, or have a private chef serve you in our gazebo as you watch the panoramic sunset over the Pacific Ocean. For the more adventurous, zipline through the rainforests. Nearby volcanoes offer hiking opportuities, or take a three-hour drive to see Arenal Volcano. White water raft down class III rapids as monkeys and iguanas watch from the banks. Snorkel, scuba dive, or charter a boat for a deep-sea fishing trip.

Stunningly beautiful and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week with friends at this amazing home on Peninsula Papagayo. The home is open and spacious. The large front doors open to the living area and the entire backside of the house are glass doors that open to the tropical breezes and the ocean. Numerous seating areas inside and outside give everyone plenty of space to either retreat with a book for gather for cocktails while seeing the sunset. The views are specular and you can hear the ocean waves breaking on the beach below.

All the bedrooms have individually controlled a/c that operates quickly and quietly. Each bedroom has huge closets and its own bathroom supplied with luxury amenities. The Casa is tastefully and comfortably furnished to reflect the beauty of Costa Rica with art and crafts from local artists.

Yahida was the sweet housekeeper that was there to tidy up the bedrooms on a daily basis and help us practice our Spanish. She was very helpful and was appreciative of the gratuity we gave her before we left.

The owners, Elaine and Bart, gave us all the information we needed in order to access the Four Season’s Resort Community. We took full advantage of the golf cart provided to visit restaurants and beaches and we even used the Paddle boards in the bay!! That was cool! We had massages at the beach club and enjoyed using the fitness center. Played golf on this amazing course with views to die for, walked the 2000+ steps that hug the cliff side, and then when the stars came out we just reclined in the pool chairs looking up at the heavens.

This house is at the top of my list for luxury vacation rentals!

Amazing House/Great Staff

  • 5 of 5

Wow! My family and I just spent a week in this wonderful house. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the property's concierge. She is simply wonderful and helped make our vacation incredibly memorable. She arranged amazing dinners, booked great daily events (including a full-day boating trip that is not to be missed), ensured that our refrigerator stayed stocked, and did all the little things that made this such a memorable vacation. The housekeepers not only kept the house spotless, but also made us amazing breakfasts. You also get use of the beach club, where the staff made us feel like we were the most important guests they have ever had.

When you first walk into the house and see out into the backyard with its azure infinity pool and the breathtaking views, all the stresses of the "real-world" will melt away. Even the most stressed individuals (I am one) will be able to relax.

I have stayed in the finest resorts throughout the world, and none compare to this house. Bottom-line, I highly recommend renting this magnificent home.

Fantastic Property - Fantastic Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Everything I can say has already been written. The reviews are spot on and we appreciate the others before us to write them (we read them and depended on them). This is a spectacular home, with amazing features and views. The staff is truly amazing and provided us with a fantastic, relaxing vacation. One excursion not to be missed is the full day boat tour. We fished (and caught a 60 pound Mahi Mahi), snorkeled, and had an wonderful lunch on a private beach. The staff even prepared Sashimi for us with our fresh catch. We loved every minute of our time in Costa Rica and hope to return soon to this property.

Cherished Memories!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a FABULOUS property!!!!! We had 4 couples staying at the house together and what a memorable time we experienced. The house is so spacious, and great for entertaining! Impeccable housekeeping and grounds staff. The infinity pool was spectacular, perfect for adults and children!!! Had meals at the beautiful gazebo overlooking the Pacific! Also the perfect spot to have cocktails and take in the most amazing sunsets! We enjoyed watching the monkeys and beautiful birds of Costa Rica from this spot, was our daily entertainment! We had the opportunity to play on the wonderful golf course and enjoy the Beach Club, both so convenient to the house.. This house is not to be missed for a family or an adult vacation, the perfect spot!!!! We highly recommend!!!

Excellent in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We recently traveled to Costa Rica for a mini family reunion. Being in a house was important to us as we all live in different areas of the country and wanted a place to bring us together. The layout proved perfect for this. Family games in the evening, gorgeous grounds and plenty of wildlife. The house was beautifully maintained, clean and inviting. We spent a lot of time laying by and in the infinity pool which overlooked the ocean. The recommendations for excursions were spot on as well. I highly recommend this house if you are looking for luxury in a paradise setting.

fantastic house, amazing staff

  • 5 of 5

We just completed a 5 night stay at this amazing property. I doubt very much that there is another house anywhere in the vicinity that can match the views, ammenities, and staff of this property. This property is perfectly situated close to the Four Seasons resort and overlooks the amazing Beach Club and is only a short drive from surf, zip line and beach town adventures. We comfortably slept 5 adults and 4 kids within its excellent layout and easily hosted dinners with 10 adults and 10 kids. I would whole-heartedly recommend this very well thought out and maintained property to anyone looking for a Costa Rican getaway.
