“steeped in nature, rural, close to attractions”
Reviewed 16 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

We actually stayed at a property managed by Eder and Allan called 'Ceiba Pond Home Rental', a few miles south of La Fortuna, near San Ramon. It was lovely, clean, private, surrounded by gardens, a pond, and river, and fields. It had a rural estate feeling to it. Thankfully we had a guide lead us there from Eder's office in town (La Fortuna), because it was located down an unmarked bumpy gravel road, so we wouldn't have found it on our own! Some air conditioning in the house (master bedroom), but the house cooled off pretty well in the evening with the doors and windows open. Pool was refreshing. The house is pretty well provisioned, and we cooked and ate at home most of the time. This is a really scenic lovely area, and highly recommended. There is lots to see and do in the area, including coffee and chocolate farm tours, volcano viewing, hot-spring visits, wildlife tours, hiking and horseback riding.

“Excellent Villa”
Reviewed 12 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Villa La Fortuna was just as described. It is a large, comfortable villa, approximately 2K from downtown La Fortuna. It was very clean and nicely presented with everything we needed. Eder, the owner, was very helpful and, although we didn't need extra tours or similar, we would have had no hesitation in using him had we needed to. Would definitely recommend for a stay in La Fortuna.

“Villa La Fortuna exceeded all expectations!”

Our week long stay at La Villa Fortuna provided a stark contrast to our previous week in San Jose. Trading the urban chaos for the beautiful rainforest tranquility, green agricultural fields and serene livestock dotting the mountain sides was a welcome change of scene. The beauty of nature in Costa Rica is truly breathtaking.
Villa La Fortuna is a well maintained, spacious 3 bedroom (+office), 3 bath, 2 story home with all of the amenities one could desire. The home is very well provisioned simplifying the need to shop for basics on arrival. The kitchen has everything needed to prepare a snack or a three course meal. The linens, towels and bedding are high quality. And for those of us trekking into the often wet and muddy beauty of waterfalls, rivers, rainforest and all, the villa’s washer/dryer are essential.
A safe and home security system protect your valuables while you’re touring. The screened windows provide great ventilation infusing the villa with clean, refreshing rainforest air feeding the numerous ceiling fans. A large 2nd floor sun deck provides a bird’s eye view of the birds visiting the surrounding citrus trees as well as a great view of the Arenal Volcano, clouds permitting. Many books and publications are provided at Villa La Fortuna describing Costa Rica, its attractions and the abundant flora and fauna. Keeping in touch via the internet is easy with the villa’s wi-fi.
Villa La Fortuna is in a peaceful location minutes by car to the small town of La Fortuna where great restaurants are plentiful and the citizens friendly. This home provides a most relaxing home base for touring the many must-see/must-do attractions in the Arenal/La Fortuna area. The property manager, Eder, is a great asset providing loads of local information - even booking tours to local attractions for your convenience. His assistance is always just a call away on the cell phone provided. This property is truly a gem!

We stayed only for two nights (we should have stayed longer) but this place was awesome. It has three rooms big enough to stay confortable, one of them is huge.
It's less than 10 minutes drive from town and close to all activities in La Fortuna (main city)
We definitly recommend this house for friends or family groups.
