Secluded Paradise -- Magic place !

  • 5 of 5
What a property !
The photos are not doing justice, the setting is far nicer. Given the rental price per night we do not think it can get much better. Sam and Roxie were very, very alert and helped us a lot with the neighbourhood and they gave us really good advise what to do with our vacation time. The house and grounds are ideal for a couple like us with two teenagers. The climate in Atenas is supposed to be the best climate in the world and we can only agree with it 100%.
We had a blast and we recommend this place highly !

Amazing View!

  • 4 of 5
The outdoor area and pool were great. We spent most of our time outside and one of my favorite places for my morning coffee was the swing. The house was as described except the alarm system goes off but is not connected to a security company. We did accidentally set it off 3 times and it is noisy. The house is in need of a deep cleaning and needed some minor maintenance issues. The sofas were dirty looking so we covered it with a blanket. Again the outside area was where we spent most of our time. We enjoyed Kay's Cafe and the new owners Lisa and Harold. Sunday brunch was very nice.

Owner's Response: On checkout the renters informed us of 2 ceiling fans that only had one speed,2 light bulbs that burned out and a drawer that did not open properly.The following day both fans were replaced with new ones,light bulbs changed and drawer fixed.
The owners buying a brand new stove as well this week.
Rent with confidence knowing that the house is well maintained and any problems addressed quickly !

Spacious and comfortable home in a great location! Beautiful views and gated with privacy.

  • 5 of 5
Pictures do not do this home any justice! Even after looking at the pictures many times and singing along to their video tour :) we were still in awe upon arrival. The house sits mountain side above the town of Atenas. The town is within walking distance, but consider approximately 20 mins walk each way. The property is gated at front of driveway, landscape beautiful and lush with a lime tree and mango tree. There is a house next door, sometimes could hear neighbors but never saw them. Nothing in front or behind the home but gorgeous views! There is outdoor porch lighting to guide your way when arriving at night, some lighting around pool area but the rest is pretty dark. The outdoor clothes line was great for hanging swim suits and towels after our adventures. A major bonus to have a washing machine! even though this wash room was outdoors, it makes complete sense considering there's no dryer. Inside the home is simply decorated and furnished, complete kitchen, three bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The two smaller bedrooms are small with closets and windows that provide nice breeze. Our eleven year old was more comfortable using the table fan provided. The master is more spacious, much larger closets, ceiling fan and AC. We never turned the AC on, the breeze from the windows and fans were just right. The master bed was the best mattress I've ever slept on! Both bathrooms were great, however we found better water pressure from the guest shower and more space for items in the master bath. The kitchen is equipped with basic essentials, even spices and things left behind. I did have to buy another kitchen sponge for dishes and hand towel. Linens provided, towels, umbrellas and misc items in the guest closet. We found the TV/living area a little lacking. The couches were fine but we found ourselves wishing there was another couch or recliner. The position of the TV is a little awkward too,high up from where your sitting. This is the only TV in the house, wifi was easily accessible. The pool and spacious outdoor areas were perfect for our early morning coffee and late night swims. We did encounter some mighty bugs outside! Gratefully everything inside was dead, mostly ants around windows. The house was clean inside and out, however some deep cleaning should be done more often. We had to seriously dust the table fan, scrub a shower head and noticed lots of dust atop kitchen cabinets. All very minor things to dismiss for this secluded piece of paradise!

OUR BEST VACATION EVER

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the house for two weeks and it worked out just perfectly. The house and the property are fantastic and the pictures don't do it justice. Sam and Roxanne were very helpful and we feel very safe with the alarm system. Because of the floor tiles the house is basically bug free which is very important in Costa Rica. We would highly recommend it for travellers who don't like bugs in their house. The grounds are very spacious and you feel like you're in the country and yet it is only a 15 minute walk to Atenas city. The house has recently been upgraded with new furniture, TV, VCR, outside paint etc. Given the reasonable price it was the best vacation ever.

Location

From the Owner

It has absolutely beautiful views, is very private and has everything that one needs on vacation. The former owners who have been lovingly looking after this vacation rentals are now looking after it as property managers, ensuring the quality that previous guests have come to appreciate.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : San Jose at 20 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Punta Leona at 40 Kilometres Car: recommended

Best climate in the world! Great base for sightseeing trips in all directions due to it's central location. 8 different climactic zones, 26 national parks, and more species of birds, butterflies, and trees than the US and Canada combined. None of Costa Rica's attractions are far from this central location. no matter what part of Costa Rica you wish to explore. We are located 45 minutes from the San Jose International Airport, 45 minute drive to the beach, and less than an hour to breath taking waterfalls and volcanoes via mystical cloud forests.

The charming village of Atenas has lots to offer: restaurants, shops, markets and wonderful people. Stop by the local farmer's market on Fridays to pick up fresh produce, meat and fish. Atenas is located in a peaceful, non-industrial part of the central valley.
