Want to go back!
Words can't say enough, you have to be there to know how amazing this place is. Simply magical! My wife and I has an amazing stay and April made it so special. She is there for anything you need. She wants to showcase her beautiful location in the Nicoya Peninsula and to make sure you have everything you need for a great visit. We couldn't stop just taking in the views We could have done more activities while we were there, but it was so nice just staying in and enjoying the place. She has tons of resources for her guests to help decide what activities are best, and she likes to have feedback to help with future recommendations. But pretty much all her recommendations were spot on for us. Thanks so much, April!
Our first trip to beautiful Costa Rica
We were truly fortunate in choosing to stay at the emerald abode. We called it our little tree house in the jungle. The views were enchanting. The house was well equipped and very welcoming. The private pool and spa was relaxing and it became part of our everyday routine. Santa Teresa and the emerald abode will go down in our book as one of our best vacation spots. It definitely is a do over for us. Although we did not get to meet April, her assistant, Melissa, was a pleasure to meet and she took care of our every need. 👍�
It warms my heart when i have guests that enjoy the Emerald Abode so much. I have designed the house for total privacy, which everyone loves; but also i have put a lot of heart into the design. For me, it is not just a rental house for income, as so many house rentals are now in our village. I see my competition offer homes and rooms that look like they could be in any town anywhere in the world.. white walls, empty refrigerators, exaggerated views, little personality, which is ok, if that is what you are looking for.
Instead i approach the tourist rental business as an opportunity to share a little piece of my paradise with fortunate couples that are adventurous enough to see and want a totally unique experience.. my walls are colorful, my house and refrigerator is full of complimentary items, and i offer an insider look into our village with full concierge service for all activities to help you get the most out of your vacation.
As i have said before, my house is not built as a north American house is.
In the tropics it is very common to find open kitchen's, living rooms and lounge areas to take advantage of the tropical breezes. The abundance of Nature is why i came to Costa Rica and what i believe most tourist also come for. At the Emerald Abode i offer all that and in my case, the open concept of building also opens up the house to the tropical nature that is all around, and the amazing views. The abundance of Nature is why i came to Costa Rica and what i believe most tourist also come for.
The Emerald Abode sits on a hillside with outstanding views. Some may say they are Million Dollar views. The village is directly below, but hidden by the Emerald Canopy below; so the ocean, sky and nature is what you get here. You can watch the surfers from the kitchen or the poolside, and all day and night you hear the ocean, birds and night crickets instead of the busy village below.
if you are looking for something unique, and want a heart felt home designed for two to relax in and enjoy you vacation time, then i'm confident the Emerald Abode is the right fit.
i have created helpful ebooks that i send to any inquiry. they are packed full of information to assist your planning before you get here. lots of transportation tips and websites, and tons of activities outlined in these ebooks.. one more thing i do to bring the personal touch to the Emerald Abode.
The most amazing view and sunset we have ever seen!
My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon for 4 nights and loved every minute of it! The pictures don’t do it justice, talk about a million dollar view! April was an amazing host she had a bottle of champagne waiting and even stacked the fridge with the essentials and then some. She also had tons of information at the house about anything you could possibly want to do in town or nearby including restaurants, nature preserves, waterfall hikes etc. You will definitely need 4x4 to get to the property and there are quite a few stairs up to the house but just makes for a better view!
it is very exciting to get great reviews. Each guests have their own way of wording what they found was the best to talk about, and it's hard to say it all, but i think Ashley has done a great job pointing out what makes the Emerald Abode a little better than most rentals out there. I love giving, and that is why i have a great complimentary package for my guests. if you book for 5 days or more the fridge has beer, wine, ice, fresh breakfast items like Bakery fresh bread, local eggs, butter, and milk. i also stock with Premium Costa Rica Coffee (all you can drink),, imported teas and CR organic Cane sugar, and lots of cooking condiments if you like cooking while on vacation...
The bathroom has lots of complimentary items as well. I try my best to provide a HOME, and built it with love with romance in mind. Perfect for honeymoon couples, Anniversary trips, and those couples wanting a little something more special to share with each other...
The perfect getaway! We were in awe for 10 days!
The Emerald Abode was everything we imagined and more. April provided everything we needed to make our stay perfect. We felt like we were in our own private little paradise. The plunge pool sunsets were the icing on the cake.
We often found it hard to drag ourselves away from the Abode to the many adventures awaiting us in and around Santa Teresa. The beaches were breathtaking. The food was amazing when we chose to eat out and the people were lovely.
We will forever treasure our memories of this truly special place. Pura Vida
it's always wonderful to meet such lovely travelers that have enjoyed their stay at the Emerald Abode ... the Emerald Abode is Not for Everyone.. is not a normal north american home, so guests that love it the most are ones that are flexible and want to try something new.. so if you are looking for a vacation that will get you a totally new experience, then i welcome you to check us out...
so what is so different ? as the photo's show clearly, this home is an open concept... the only closed in room in the house and equipped with A/C, is the bedroom.. all other areas are open to nature. If you are looking for an unusual experience this might be the perfect spot for you... the house is only 4 years old, and conveniently located in Santa Teresa. It sits above the busy village, so you are super close to stores, beaches and activities, yet up high enough that all you see is the ocean, and surrounding nature, with hug sky's to view the stars at night and surfers by day... away from the busy village below...
Not a typical north American Home....if you are looking for a typical NA home, one with a/c in every room and small windows surrounded by even more cement to keep out nature, then the Emerald Abode is not for you....
Costa Rica is ALL about NATURE, and Santa Teresa is very much full of nature. i love sharing my little piece of paradise with travelers, looking for the unusual and lots adventure, with nature surrounding you..
Compared to Tamarindo area ? our area is a very rustic in comparison to a town like Tamarindo where concrete is everywhere, where you could be standing in the middle of any beach town in usa...
Santa TEresa and Area is completely different , including dirt roads,no sidewalks ..... I mention this for the few guests that have not liked the Emerald Abode and Santa Teresa are usually those from cities that have every modern convenience at their fingertips and surrounded by shopping malls...
Is the Emerald Abode the perfect fit ? 5 star Reviews like this one (and the other 95%) are from guests that are looking for adventure and the opportunity to be somewhere totally different... people that think and live 'out of the box'..
i welcome ALL inquiries of course, but i'm the type of host that wants you to be totally happy here, and so the only way i can help make a perfect fit between my home and guests is to be honest and present the house as it truly is... Unique - Open Air Design - Rustic - Incredible Views - with Nature Surrounding
Emerald abode and Santa Teresa are a wonderful match. Miles of beautiful coastline, with much of it to yourselves if you like privacy. If you do not, there is plenty to do in the town with over 70 resteraunts.
This is not a 5 star resort where you are waited on- so if that is what you want, go to the Marriott! it is a unique beautiful place where you can overlook the ocean 24/7, have your own private pool with a view of the ocean. Never used the AC the entire time we were there. Loved the bathroom, deck , bedroom, etc! April’s dogs are the best, still miss them. April does a wonderful job helping you out with whatever you need. We like to cook in and the view from the deck at sunset is priceless! Best vacation my wife and I have ever had together ! Thanks April!!
The pictures don't do it justice!! It's paradise!
How do we begin? April is an amazing host. Attentive, yet valued our privacy. She provided all kinds of information on what to do and see in the area. So helpful. The open air house provided amazing views. Let the waves lull you to sleep. Food and liquor prices are equivalent to Canadian prices so definitely shop duty free before you arrive. Fresh fish markets and local sodas (diners) offer AMAZING food. Every cuisine is at your doorstep, but she provides everything to allow you to cook at home. And it's very much like home.
There are 4 beautiful and gentle fur babies who may greet you. We were thrilled to have them visit.
Local surf instructors at the Kina Surf Shop were great and patient with a couple of old dogs learning a new trick. So much fun.
This was an adventure beyond our imagination.
We are grateful for the opportunity to enjoy this piece of heaven!! Will definitely be back.
Oh... And she means it when she says rent a 4x4!! Bring hiking shoes if you intend to walk! But the views are so worth it!! Truly a gem❤️
