This property management went beyond just providing a place to stay. They arranged shuttles and helped us organize trips while we were at the Emerald Estates. We had a very pleasant and memorable experience in La Fortuna. Thank you William!!
The tours we arranged through William and Laura were cheaper than Desafio but the experience was better. That is very unexpected especially when Desafio had a star rating from Fodors.
We enjoyed the our travel so much that within the first week of our return, we were exploring to visit Costa Rica again - may be this time to Monte Verde area!!
House was very well kept and had more than enough beds and space for our group of 9. Beautiful pool, pool bar, yard, and volleyball net. William was a great host and hooked us up with all of the best excursions. Can't wait to go back!
Really enjoyed staying here. The property was beautiful and location was great. William, Laura, and Nohelia were super helpful. Scenery was very nice! I would def recommend!
Had a great time at this beautiful Costa Rican home. The grounds are stunning and we even saw a sloth in the tree right out front. William and Laura greeted us and even made us a delicious star fruit drink. Great place for our first trip to Costa Rica.
From beginning to end William, Laura and the staff at CDCR were welcoming, helpful and made our trip the best it could possibly be. They sent us info on what to pack, helped us book excursions, and even gave us spot on restaurant recommendations. All we had to do was show up. The house was absolutely beautiful, and the grounds even more so. Whether you are just a couple who wants to be alone, or a group of 10 the Emerald Estate is the perfect place for you. You'll be able to pick fresh oranges and starfruit in the back yard for breakfast, grill out by the pool or you can just relax inside in the huge jacuzzi tub. It's also only a quick 5 min drive to downtown la fortuna which is closer than most hotels in the area. It's quite secluded so it's very quiet except for the sounds of birds and rustling trees. It was definitely a vacation I will never forget and a lot of that is because of CDCR. Thank you so much, PURA VIDA!!
We deiced to travel during the rainy season and were not disappointed with our experience. We have stayed with Casa De Costa Rica a few times and stayed at one of their newest places during this trip. What a beautiful house!
As per usual, William and Laura were super professional and helped us with every aspect of our trip from beginning to end. This house was luxurious and the woodwork was so impressive. The grounds were full of fruit trees and the pool was great. The AC was nice and strong so we were comfortable out of the heat whenever we wanted to be. We highly recommend this house and CDCR as a company.
The Arenal Emerald Estate exceeded my expectations! We have used home rentals before and this is the first time we ever felt that the house looked better than in the pictures! My husband and I booked this house for our family vacation, with our teenage boys and two of their friends, it was great that they each had their own bed and spacious closet space. My husband and I cooked all the breakfasts in the beautiful kitchen and William and Laura arranged for a chef to come in to prepare all of our dinners, she was incredible and really nice!
The boys loved the pool, it was so big! We prepared burgers one afternoon and ate outside on the wooden picnic tables.
We did a couple of tours in town, which William and Laura arranged for us but found that staying in the pool and exploring the property was really nice, too! It was a dream, I would love to come back!
