About William and Laura

I, William, grew up in the Congo as a missionary kid. While I enjoyed my former careers as a Fortune 500 business consultant, inventor and part time musician and always wanted to move back to the tropics. While here for vacation 4 years ago, I used my 20 years of business development expertise to help a friend who had lost her job save her vacation home here by marketing it as a rental property. She was ecstatic, then my phone started to ring with others who also had one-of-a-kind properties and wanted my help too! I suddenly had a vacation company. I now have the honour of working with some of the nicest people and some of the most unique properties in the country. Life was perfect when my beautiful Laura purchased a one way ticket and joined me after years apart. Our company has grown so much in the last year that we have added our long time friend Nohelia to our team. I love meeting my many guests, plus living and working here in paradise beats corporate office life hands down! Ask for our free, new, comprehensive vacation planning guide! We can help with everything, hope to see you soon!

Very hospitable, clean, great backyard

Far enough from town to feel secluded but close enough for groceries and restaurant

Wonderful home! Very cozy!

  • 5 of 5

This home was wonderful! Very close to town, easy access, very clean and comfortable. The grounds were beautiful - we enjoyed walking around every day to see what new things we could discover! Nohelia was amazingly helpful to explain excursion options and then helped us set up each one without a hitch. William and Laura were great to work with in setting up all the logistics in the rental and making sure we had everything we needed. Marco greeted us right away and was very accommodating. Would definitely recommend to anyone staying in the area!

We miss it already!

  • 5 of 5

Marco we can’t thank you enough for sharing your little piece of heaven with us this last week! This home was a perfect oasis for our family in La Fortuna. WHEN we come back with friends or family we will be heading straight back here. Super close to town but a real private tropical retreat. Loved sitting on the deck watching the lightning storms. 4 bedrooms (we only needed 3), three bathrooms, kitchen, laundry, small pool and the hamocks in the covered cabana , delightful deck, beautiful property, and all the sounds of rich diverse wildlife. Couldn’t ask for anything more 😀

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We especially loved having coffee on the back porch watching the variety of birds and enjoying the plants and sounds. The house was clean and located close to town.

Nohelia provided us with excellent service relative to scheduling activities.

We loved every minute spent here!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on April 24th and and stayed for 3 nights. There were a total of 7 adults and 2 toddlers and there was plenty of room for all of us. It took a little longer getting there than I thought but when we arrived we were greeted by Marco and his Daughter who welcomed us with fresh Pineapple juice and showed us around the house. We had arranged a traditional Costa Rican dinner the night we arrived through Nohelia (who was a pleasure to work with in not only renting the house but with booking activities as well) which I would highly recommend. The next morning we were able to walk the property in the daylight. What an awesome place, there was a pineapple bush in the backyard, what looked to be a banana tree in the front, numerous types of palm trees and a small stream. Town is a 5 min drive, La Fortuna falls is a 10 minute drive and the Hot Springs and Hanging bridges are 15-20 mins away.

We really enjoyed our stay here! Looking back on our trip I think we would have spent a couple more nights here instead of at the beach, we liked it that much!

Nohelia was always just a phone call away if we needed something or Marco who lives next door could be reached easily. There is also a gate that Marco opens and closes each morning and night for added peach of mind. We would certainly stay here again!
