    The Riverbank: An oasis of calm serenity in the middle of everything!
    Gorgeous Master bedroom with rare artwork and an amazing view of the little river right outside.
    Even the corners are pretty... more art, little touches to add to your stay.
    Gorgeous cedar beds, designed by us, romantic setting for a couple or a great room for up to 4 kids.
    Property description
    La Fortuna de San Carlos
    |
    Condo/Apartment – 
    4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 11
    This "best of the best" rental is two connected condominiums which can be rented either together or individually. NOTE: This can make pricing a bit complicated, please contact us for a quote.

    The Riverbank is situated on what is absolutely one of the best locations in all of La Fortuna. It is less than 50 feet from the River and the beautiful back yard garden is full of gorgeous flowers, perfume trees, iguanas, hummingbirds and the occasional sloth in the trees as well as countless songbirds and even the legendary toucans... all accompanied by the peaceful sound of the little river laughing over it's bed of small rocks. And yet it is only 100 feet from the liquor store, 200 from grocery stores and the park in the center of town!

    Additional Location Information
    The Bing map used by Flipkey is very old and does not show most of the streets that are in La Fortuna. If you look where the flag is placed on the map above, then you will see exactly where the apartment is located, even though the map does not show the street or the Burio river.

    Transportation is easy. If you are on a short vacation, then look into flying to La Fortuna instead of driving; flight schedules are published by Sanza and Nature Air and a 20 minute flight is always better and easier than a drive after your international flight. If your international flight arrives too late for you to connect to a local one, then private vans with drivers are also available for almost the same price as a car rental by itself, so contact us for a quote. They make the start and finish of your trip much more relaxing and much SAFER with door to door service. Plus, cars are less expensive to rent here than they are in Liberia or San Jose.

    If you do decide to drive here from San Jose or L...

Our stay at the Riverbank was a great way to start our trip in Costa Rica. The location to the town of La Fortuna could not be beat-within walking distance to everything. Not to mention the view-at the base of the volcano-directly out our patio window! It was a fairly quiet neighborhood and the backyard was so pretty with it's... more

Our family of eight recently spent a few days enjoying William and Laura's hospitality. I would echo what all the other guests have said - the condos are well-appointed and super-clean. William and Laura are such responsive and engaging hosts. One very important thing that I hadn't fully realized before getting there was the location - the condos are right... more

Our family of 5 stayed here for 7 days, which for lafortuna may be just enough time to get all your activities done. The condo was spacious, and well appointed. William and Laura where such great hosts, and made us feel very welcome. Lafortuna is a great hub to run day trip out of. Costa Rica is absolutely beautiful! more
