traveler reviews for this atenas house rental

Beautiful Home!

Review submitted: June 18, 2014   Date of arrival: May 19, 2014

This house is amazing. We would rent again in a minute. There are no negatives. Charlie, the owner, was quick to respond to our needs. He went out of his way to show us around town. The view from the house is amazing. The pool is really special. We had an excellent meal at La Trocha. We travelled to Sarchi, Jaco and visited the Basilica in Cartago. Do not miss the farmers market on Friday. Atenas is a great town with great weather!

The complete vacation get away

Review submitted: June 17, 2014   Date of arrival: May 28, 2014

We stayed for ten days during the "green" season, it was great to get back to the house mid afternoon and enjoy some downtime while mother nature did her thing to keep everything watered.

Atenas is a great place to use a base as you bounce around different parts of the country, just be prepared to do a fair bit of driving to see everything.

The house is very well equipped and the pictures are accurate, you won't be disappointed upon arrival. We cooked daily as the restaurants in Costa Rica leave a bit to be desired, having a complete kitchen sure came in handy. Decent BBQ too!!

The one thing that really stood out for us was Charlie was always available to answer any questions about Costa Rica and really bent over backwards to help us throughout our stay. Do heed his warning re. swimming in the Pacific, it can be dangerous.

I would highly recommend renting this home, in hindsight we should have stayed longer than the 10 days allotted for our vacation. On behalf of Ashley, Erica, and myself Thank you!!!

A Slice of Heaven

Review submitted: May 9, 2014   Date of arrival: March 22, 2014

Our recent vacation in Costa Rica was made most enjoyable mostly due to our choice of accommodations. Casa Colibri is a real gem. It's quite close to the airport, which is nice after a long plane ride. When we arrived at the house, Charlie, the owner was there to greet us. After orienting us to the house he offered to drive us to town so we could shop. This was a godsend as we were quite tired and hungry and didn't think we had the energy for a long walk. The house was fabulous, the two bedrooms are separated from each other so their is a great deal of privacy for two couples. The living area is open and inviting. We spent most of our time on the patio by the pool and on the balcony outside the upstairs bedroom enjoying the fabulous view.

The house was so relaxing and peaceful that we spent most of our time there. The town was a pleasant walk down hill and we always took a taxi home. The taxi drivers are nice and helpful. My partner left his glasses in the taxi we drove home in one afternoon and after we realized they were missing Charlie drove us to town and we found a cab similar to the one we had taken to see if they could help us locate the glasses. He phoned his dispatcher and within 20 minutes his glasses were delivered right up to our house.

We had a wonderful breakfast at a restaurant outside of town but I can't remember the name of it. It had a beautiful view of the countryside and good food. Charlie recommended it so he will know the name.

If you are looking for a relaxing time in a gorgeous setting Casa Colibri is the place for sure.
