Exclusive Arenal Emerald Estate

Home // Properties // Exclusive Arenal Emerald Estate

This exceptional destination property is known as The Arenal Emerald Estate for two reasons. First, it is now a show-piece property in the CDCR vacation property rental portfolio. Second, the new name more accurately reflects how stunningly beautiful and unique this property truly is!

Despite being only 6km from La Fortuna, it is cradled in too many beautiful flowering plants, palm and fruit trees, flower beds and even pineapple beds to count. There are massive trees that shade literally acres of grounds with their huge branches. They in turn are surrounded with literally dozens of fruit trees. Guests can pick a fresh papaya or pineapple right on the property for breakfast; or jack fruit, sour sop, mangos, star fruit… the list goes on and on! The massive branches and dozens of fruit trees attract too many birds to count plus huge iguanas and even sloths right on the property!

This one of a kind estate really is a beautiful gem nestled in the outskirts of La Fortuna, located only 8 minutes from the town center. There is a remote controlled gate and alarm system installed at the house so you never have to worry about security.

The estate was built by a Spanish couple and inspired by houses from the Spanish countryside. When they moved back to Spain, the couple decided to open their one-of-a-kind estate to tourists visiting Costa Rica so that others could enjoy the property.

The front doors open to a great room with a 40 foot wooden ceiling. It is a combination living room, dining room and kitchen. There is satellite TV and surround sound speakers in the living room. Everything you need to prepare delicious meals for large groups can be found in the kitchen. Or if you prefer to have someone else do the cooking we offer private chef service. There are two bedrooms on either side of the great room. The master bedroom has a king size bed and large ensuite bathroom featuring Italian tile and marble plus a bidet and all of the other amenities that one would expect. The second and third bedrooms have two twin beds each, and the fourth bedroom has a king size bed. The great room has undergone substantial construction to include a beautiful, semi-private fifth bedroom. This new bedroom has a queen bed with a single top bunk.

We have also remodeled the laundry/storage room, which is 5 steps from the back patio door, into a self-contained cabin. There is a queen bed with a single top bunk and ensuite bathroom. The room also includes a mini fridge, microwave, coffee make and toaster.

All of the bedrooms and also the Great Room have independent air conditioning units with independent temperature controls. This means that our guests can all be comfortable in their own rooms without having to argue over the thermostat setting! 😉

The luxurious second bathroom features double sinks, large mirror, a bidet, glass shower and Jacuzzi bath tub with a second shower head.

The outside is just as impressive as the inside. There is a large pool that is approximately 5 meters by 12 meters by 1.5 meters. (About 16ft x 40ft x 4.5ft.) This is the perfect way to cool down and relax after a day of adventure. There is a “rancho” next to the pool with a bathroom, large, outdoor wood grill/oven, a sink and stools to sit at the bar area. Perfect for entertaining by the pool! And the gazebo at the far corner of the pool is ideal for having breakfast and watching the birds in the fruit trees.
