Our Story

How We Got Here

It all started on a whim, after falling in love with the country in late 2016.  The rich history of the area, the simplistic beauty of the land and its warm and welcoming people captured our hearts. Less than two months after our inaugural visit to Costa Rica, we returned to purchase a vacation rental property and forge deeper ties with our adopted country.

Since 2012, we have successfully built and managed a unique brand of sustainable luxury rental accommodations, throughout Ontario, Canada.  This unique design and service aesthetic is emblematic of an emerald gemstone and the symbolism it holds.

The Emerald Essence

A rare and powerful stone, an emerald symbolizes royalty, renewal and growth.  Its deep green colour hints of the connection between the sea and Mother Earth.  It promotes a love of nature, a love of family and hope for others.  This connection is evident in Costa Rica’s bio-diversity and its ever evolving sustainability practices.

It’s been said that our most important luxury is time.  Luxury travel used to be defined by good service, great accommodations, picturesque views and fantastic food.  Today, it means going beyond those common expectations to create one-of-a-kind and authentic experiences that forge local connections with the places we visit.

While some come to Costa Rica for a ‘tech-free’ vacation, for others the need to stay connected with colleagues, friends and loved ones back home is paramount to maintaining a balanced and ‘distraction free’ vacation experience.  The technological amenities provided at Casa Emerald Palms specifically encourage our guests to stay connected and share their positive Costa Rican vacation treasures, moments and discoveries. 

Simply put, Casa Emerald Palms exists to provide comfort, certainty and relaxation to the lives of the travelling community, by providing a rental accommodation and services that remind us of the connectivity of human potential.

Affordable Luxury. Re-imagined™

We are committed to employing sustainable, hospitality practises and making contributions benefiting the environment and the local communities where we have rental properties.  Our rental design philosophy personifies the spirit of sustainable luxury: style and substance. 

Our interiors are elegant and contemporary; creatively designed yet purposely-built for the modern traveller.  We have combined technology for productivity and connectivity with all the comforts of home for wellness and relaxation, using sustainable materials or products of quality and durability.  Casa Emerald Palms is spacious and comfortable. It’s the perfect spot to lay back, lounge with new friends or get down to work.

Together, with our on-site concierge and property management team, we strive to provide you with the conveniences of luxury hotel-travel, coupled with the authenticity and local flavour of a fully-functional vacation rental condo. 

Our goal and commitment is to provide a high level of hospitality and service, within the traditional and often unpredictable vacation rental condo experience – all while taking care of the environment and the local community.

We wish you an unforgettable stay with friends and loved ones among Costa Rica’s immense natural beauty, here at Casa Emerald Palms.
