    The Riverbank: An oasis of calm serenity in the middle of everything!
    Gorgeous Master bedroom with rare artwork and an amazing view of the little river right outside.

    Gorgeous cedar beds, designed by us, romantic setting for a couple or a great room for up to 4 kids.
    Property description
    La Fortuna de San Carlos
    |
    Condo/Apartment – 
    4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 11
    This "best of the best" rental is two connected condominiums which can be rented either together or individually. NOTE: This can make pricing a bit complicated, please contact us for a quote.

    The Riverbank is situated on what is absolutely one of the best locations in all of La Fortuna. It is less than 50 feet from the River and the beautiful back yard garden is full of gorgeous flowers, perfume trees, iguanas, hummingbirds and the occasional sloth in the trees as well as countless songbirds and even the legendary toucans... all accompanied by the peaceful sound of the little river laughing over it's bed of small rocks. And yet it is only 100 feet from the liquor store, 200 from grocery stores and the park in the center of town!

    Additional Location Information
    The Bing map used by Flipkey is very old and does not show most of the streets that are in La Fortuna. If you look where the flag is placed on the map above, then you will see exactly where the apartment is located, even though the map does not show the street or the Burio river.

    Transportation is easy. If you are on a short vacation, then look into flying to La Fortuna instead of driving; flight schedules are published by Sanza and Nature Air and a 20 minute flight is always better and easier than a drive after your international flight. If your international flight arrives too late for you to connect to a local one, then private vans with drivers are also available for almost the same price as a car rental by itself, so contact us for a quote. They make the start and finish of your trip much more relaxing and much SAFER with door to door service. Plus, cars are less expensive to rent here than they are in Liberia or San Jose.

    If you do decide to drive here from San Jose or L...

This was a great property in a great location. It was clean, comfortable, and steps from the grocery and some great places to eat. At Williams suggestion we hired private transport to bring us there from the airport and I have to say it was money well spent. After two flights from the states we were so glad to be... more

We had such a great time on our weeklong vacation to Costa Rica --- we spent 4 nights at the Riverbank -- William and Laura were fantastic hosts. The apartment was super clean and even nicer than it looks in the pictures and being steps away from the main square of town was ideal for us. Beautiful garden in back... more

William really went out of his way to set us up with things to do that exceeded our hopes while fitting with our schedule and budget. He even invited us over for a party in his place. Giovanni the wildlife guide he hooked up for us was amazing and gregarious. Best of all, these people are doing good things for... more
