About Eder Cruz Acuña
I have over 12 years of work experience in Tourism industry (I study Business Administration in a Costa Rica public college and I have a degree in Marketing), I started as a front desk clerk and ended up as an operations manager in Hotels in La Fortuna area. I can guarantee that I know Arenal area pretty well and my country; I loved to help people in their vacations to make wonderful memories. I am used to be your advisor in everything that you plan to do in La Fortuna, actually I have several homes, cabins and apartments for rent in the area, I got in this business by accident; once a friend call me asking for help to manage their sites for his home; I did not knew anything about it but I had worked with Expedia, Trip Advisor, Hostelworld and Booking sites for Hotels so I thought it should be the same, I start to study and realize that is similar but you get more "Social" is more like a friend environment so that is what I love about it, not like a Hotel where everything is strict and square most of the times. I start with one house them people began asking me to help other properties with different characteristics and finally I decide to be like a Marketing and Sales Advisor to the owners, I work next to them in order to manage and promote the house to the whole world (Internet make it easy); booking our properties you will get in touch not just with me also with the owners that would like to say hello and get to know you, I make them be part of their business; we say the is a relation WIN to WIN for the OWNER, OUR GUEST and ME!

Excellent for what we wanted.
For our group of 5 Ceiba Pond was perfect! Howler Monkeys to wake us, Blue Jean Frog and Tiger Herons by back woodland stream, great porch to sit on, enjoy the breezes, and watch the birds, and the house back from the road for quiet and privacy. Enjoyed the pool and all facilities. Nice to have the small tiendas in walking distance, and the frog reserve in the other direction.
Peaceful Family Vacation near La Fortuna
We had an amazing stay at this home on Ceiba Pond. 10 minutes outside of La Fortuna, far enough to have complete serenity but close enough to enjoy everything the town has to offer. The home and property are beautiful. Air Conditioning in the master bedroom was wonderful but all bedrooms have nice fans which made sleeping comfortable. The grounds are meticulously manicured and the pool is beautiful. Eder, at Home Away made our check in and checkout simple. Make sure you visit the Asis Proyecto animal rescue to see monkeys, toucans, any many more, up close and personal. It was the highlight of our trip!
Beautiful home and grounds
No hot water in main bathroom, no ac in other rooms. Very quiet and peaceful stay. Enjoyed the pool and the ponds. Walking distance to convince store. Overall good time
Perfect property with a perfect host!
One of the reviews said this house was the best part of CR trip for the kids - and it worked for our kids as well!
Eder was a tremendous help both during the planning process and as a host.
He is very knowledgeable and resourceful - and provides discounts for your activities!
So - Thanks a lot, Eder!
Thanks for your review, always is a pleasure help our guests.
Great place for a family to stay!
We had a great time at the house with our family (three children 5,8,10 years old) and a couple of friends. The kids enjoyed running around the property discovering the ducks and fish in the pond and playing in the pool while we enjoyed the relaxing deck. You can see Arenal from the driveway but not from the deck but the property is 10 min from Arenal Falls and quite a few other attractions like El Salto (a local tarzan swing into Rio Arenal). We appreciated that their kitchen is stocked with the appliance and utensil essentials as we choose to make several meals there. (there were NO condiments though bring ALL your own food including salt/pepper). Highly recommend for a landing place to explore all the area has to offer:)
Thanks for your lovely review.
