Info over de woning

3 slaapkamers, 2 badkamers, 5 Slaapplaatsen

Casa Esmeralda is een mooie goed onderhouden drie slaapkamers, drie badkamers mediterrane stijl villa, gelegen boven het Meer van Arenal in de Guanacaste hooglanden van Costa Rica. Het uitzicht is een van de meest spectaculaire in Costa Rica, die ooit de kleuren functies veranderen als de wolken voorbij hoog boven het meer en de omliggende bergen. Het huis is onlangs gerenoveerd en opnieuw ingericht om terug op de huurmarkt na een aantal jaren van uitsluitend privé-gebruik worden gezet. Het beschikt over een ruim overdekt terras voor 's ochtends koffie,' s middags cocktails en gesprek op elk gewenst moment. Er zijn vier comfortabele 'Tico' rockers op de veranda voor uw ontspanning. De woning heeft een satelliet-tv, dvd-speler, telefoon en WiFi, in het geval je de behoefte voelen om in contact te blijven. De woning is volledig voorzien van airconditioning, maar dit is zelden nodig met onze milde temperaturen en zachte berg bries. De keuken is goed uitgerust met nieuwe apparatuur. De eetkamer stoelen acht en is voorzien van spectaculaire uitzicht op het meer en de bergen. De wasruimte is gunstig gelegen naast de keuken en is uitgerust met een wasmachine en droger. Elk van de twee belangrijkste slaapkamers comfortabel slaapt twee volwassenen. De derde slaapkamer is uitgerust met een futon voor kinderen of extra volwassenen.

A relaxing and secluded getaway with great views and a few points that need attention.

  • 3 of 5

We were a group of 4 and overall we had an enjoyable and relaxing stay. We enjoyed the views, the wild life and the colorful gardens. The local town of Nuevo Arenal is close by and has some great, casual places to eat with really good food (Lucky Bug, Los Platillos Voladores, Las Delicias). Ed had returned to US before we arrived, and his friend Kirsten got us settled and was helpful with a couple of questions we had during our stay. The use of the local phone was very helpful.

However there are some things that either need attention or guests need to be aware of. The beds are a disaster - this is primarily because there is no box spring under the mattress, and so the mattress collapses into the bed frame during the night. The recent renovations mentioned in the property description were not very evident and seem to be relatively minor. The kitchen is functional but needs updating, and the washing machine & drier are rusty and tired looking, but worked fine. The cleaning in the bathrooms prior to our arrival was not good and there were many examples of hair around the basins and shower. The internet was slow, but I suspect this is not so much a property problem but the capability of the local infrastructure. There were only 3 rocking chairs available rather than the stated 4. Guests need to be aware that any food crumbs/particles not cleaned up will attract ants.

As a final comment, while the views are good, they are not "one of the most spectacular in Costa Rica". With a small amount of extra attention this property would go from good to great.

Reactie van de eigenaar Hello David and Family, Thank you for writing a review. This is very helpful for me as I just took over Ed's property management of this particular house a couple of days before you arrived. Right after your stay the owners arrived and we had a good look at all the details of the house. I fully agree with the points you mention and I very much appreciate you are taking the times to share your experience with us. We have blocked some time now to start working on the house to make sure all is taken care off as soon as possible. I sincerely hope that you have enjoyed your time in our little town and wish you and your family well! Kirsten

Breathtaking view, good location, but back breaking beds

  • 3 of 5

If you could take a picture of the ideal view, this would be it. We enjoyed mornings and evenings sitting on the porch, overlooking the bay and watching the colorful birds fly by. The house was very clean, equipped with all the basic necessities and cutely decorated with local art.

Our only complaint was the comfort of the beds. We used all 3bedrooms and the two regular beds you could feel/hear the squeaky springs and the futon has a gap in the middle. We were staying with our three pre/teen kids who generally can sleep anywhere, but complained.

Location was 45 minutes/hr from La Fortuna and all the activities, and the town of Nuevo Arenal had some really good restaurants (we ate at Las Delicias and Gingerbread). With new beds, we would come back here in a heartbeat.

Awesome property and view!

  • 4 of 5

Loved this house and property. It helped that the weather was great while we were there. But the view and the yard with flowers and toucans and other beautiful birds also was awesome! Kitchen could use a little updating or it would be a 5 plus!

Wonderful Time in Nuevo Arenal at Casa Esmeralda!

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and well equipped. The view from the front porch was amazing. We watched the sunset most nights. Although the house doesn't normally have a BBQ, Ed was willing to make sure one was there when we arrived. A cell phone was made available for local calls- that was very convenient!

As we really liked to hike, it was convenient being able to hike to Cote Lake without needing to drive. Loved the history of the Aliens that have been reported to land there! We also walked around the nature walk in the adjacent development, Las Flores.

As driving anywhere in Costa Rica can take a long time, we limited our excursions mainly to the Arenal Area. We hiked the 1968 trail, the Observatory Trail and the Arenal National Park Trail. They were all different and beautiful. We also did the Mistico Hanging Bridges- if you need a Disney World Experience in Costa Rica- do it. Otherwise it's crowded and nothing special. We paddled in the eastern end of Lake Arenal. We rented kayaks right from the side of the road before the dam- $15 a person for 2 hours! No reservations needed.

We soaked in the free natural hot springs that are located right before Tabacon. Liked it so much we did it a few times after our long hikes. Pay the guy $5 and he'll make sure you park in a good spot on the side of the road. The springs were filled with both tourists and locals. We felt completely safe.

Our longest trip was to Rio Celeste in Volcan Tenorio National Park. The hike was well worth the muddy trek. The waterfall and river are a most beautiful blue! Be prepared for about an hour and 45 min trip each way- one hour of which was on a dirt road.

We zip lined at Sky Trek- a lot of fun- beautiful views of the volcano and Lake Arenal.

Eat at Las Delicias for inexpensive authentic Costa Rican food. It's minutes from the house. Berta is wonderful and makes you feel very much wanted. Don't worry if there are not a lot of people there- it just doesn't matter! Los Platillos Voladores has great Italian food. It's also close by. Forget about the German Bakery- my stomach felt like it had lead weights after eating there. We had breakfast a few times at Lucky Bug (also close by).Monika's breakfasts were delicious and nutritious! It overlooks a small pond- there are humming birds right next to you while you dine alfresco!

All in all, we had a wonderful time and I would recommend Casa Esmeralda!

Spectacular Setting!!

  • 5 of 5

The home is very comfortable, clean and just as pictured. The setting is much more spectacular than the pictures. The grounds are beautiful with so many flowering plants. Birds, butterflies abound! So wonderful to watch sunset from the rocking chairs on the porch. The property is very private and we felt very safe. The road from the highway to the house is rough in places. We had a 4 wheel drive. Ed Woods was very attentive, gave excellent recommendations on restaurants and efficiently handled a minor bathroom problem. We look forward to returning.

Beautiful, secluded spot.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 adults thoroughly enjoyed returning to this quiet oasis at the end of our busy touring days. Everything is there for your comfort, including the cozy rocking chairs on the patio. Others had mentioned slow wi-fi, our family had no issues. Would return again.
