Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 9

Our house is freshly renovated with all the modern conveniences and ready for you to enjoy.

The kitchen is equipped with all the necessities, all new appliances including a dishwasher and microwave. Food service is via a stunning two-tier granite counter top with stool seating, opening onto the living area. The conversation area features a comfy tropical-themed couch and chair. Air conditioning and ceiling fans throughout add to your comfort.

The master bedroom features a luxurious king-sized bed. The head of the bed is unique in that it is a slice of a guanacaste tree. The 2nd and 3rd bedrooms have cushy new double mattresses on hand-crafted hardwood frames. The 2nd bedroom shares an ensuite bathroom and laundry. All bedrooms have ample closet space. Both bathrooms are completely renovated with fine tile work and feature artisanal hand-painted sinks.

In short, Casa Esmeralda boasts every comfort to make our home feel like your home.

Imagine your ideal vacation... perhaps it's back to nature: hiking in a pristine rainforest, seeing a live volcano, or watching whales and dolphins. Maybe you love water sports: whitewater rafting, sailing, fishing, surfing, snorkel or scuba. Or fun on the land: ziplining, cycling, hiking. Or just chilling on an endless stretch of unspoiled beach, lulled by the lapping of the waves on the shore, awaiting yet another spectacular sunset.

Our home is in Surfside and is a short walk from lovely Potrero Beach. There is easy access to local supermarkets, shops, restaurants and bars, many within a few minutes' walk.

Surfside is located just north of Flamingo. It's a real community, not a holiday resort. Some residents are permanent, some come for the winter, and some just for a few weeks. The people are a mix of Canadians, Americans, Europeans and Costa Ricans of all ages from infants to retirees. It's the kind of place where visitors feel immediately at home.

Comfortable, spacious, beautiful home 20 minutes from Danta Beach!

  • 4 of 5

Casa Esmeralda was the perfect place for our family Christmas getaway! Danta beach is a short drive away and there's lots of supermarkets, restaurants and soditas less than 5 minutes away. The automatic A/C units throughout the different rooms allowed each of us to control the room temperature to our liking. The kitchen, although small, was very lovely. There's a beautiful starfruit tree right outside the kitchen that I enjoyed very much (yum!). The location was a little hard to find, but I'm not great with directions and it was getting dark. Gary was incredible during the booking process and Captain was awesome when we arrived.

The only reason I'm not giving it a 5-star rating is because due to a burglary, all the TV's and sound system were missing. My fiancée and I had planned to let the family know of our recent engagement with a photo-slide and music, but the situation really killed it for us. The burglary is by no means the owners fault, but the lack of communication was. We didn't find out about the burglary till we arrived and asked about the TV's. Also, we were looking forward to family movie nights and dancing to Christmas music, so that was disappointing.

Overall, other than the missing TV's, I'm happy with my stay and very much looking forward to going back in the near future!

Now imagine a place that has all these things and more. Costa Rica has it all. And the Northwest Pacific area puts it all within easy reach.

Our home is in Surfside and is a short walk from lovely Potrero Beach. There is easy access to local supermarkets, shops, restaurants and bars, many within a few minutes' walk.
