Reduced Pricing until December 31, 2014. Take $100 off of the price of a one week rental. Shorter terms are 10% off. Take advantage of these rates to visit one of the most beautiful homes in the Lake Arenal area. Casa Esmeralda is a lovely well-maintained three bedroom, three bathroom Mediterranean style villa, located above Lake Arenal in the Guanacaste highlands of Costa Rica. The view is one of the most spectacular in Costa Rica that features ever changing colors as clouds pass high above the lake and surrounding mountains. The home was recently renovated and refurnished to be put back on the rental market after several years of exclusively private use. It features a spacious, covered terrace for morning coffee, afternoon cocktails and conversation anytime. There are four comfortable 'Tico' rockers on the porch for your relaxation. The home has satellite TV, DVD player, telephone and WiFi, in case you feel the need to stay in touch. The home is fully air conditioned, but this is rarely needed with our mild temperatures and gentle mountain breezes. The kitchen is well equipped with new appliances. The dining room seats eight and features dramatic lake and mountain views. The laundry room is conveniently located off the kitchen and is equipped with a washer and dryer. Each of the two main bedrooms comfortably sleeps two adults. The third bedroom is equipped with a futon for children or additional adults.

Convenient confortable house with amazing views

  • 5 of 5
The property is like a tongue sticking out above Lake Arenal which is surrounded by mountains. It is convenient since it is just off the main road and only minutes from Arenal. The house is clean and well maintained and has new furniture and appliances. Ed and Leslie were extremely helpful and nice to deal with. Arenal has several groceries and restaurants. We purchased a prepaid SIM cards and our US phones worked everywhere and could even call the States. We didn't need to use the AC very much because there were breezes from the mountains and the lake. There were lots of outdoor activities in the area.

Location

From the Owner

We dropped our son in San Jose to live with a family and study Spanish when he was a teenager. While exploring the area, we saw the views and discovered the house was on the market. Overwhelmed by the view from the house and the area, we purchased the house without any concrete plans. It has been one of our best decisions.
