Atenas house description

Set high on a ridge surrounded by a lush forest reserve, home to all kinds of wildlife, including parrots, toucans, sloths and monkeys, our brand new, custom built tropical bali style home, located in a gated eco-residential community, will be your home away from home! Come down and relax in this 2 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom slice of heaven! Open the doors and enjoy the famous Atenas climate (best in the world according to National Geographic) with beautiful warm days and cool sleeping nights! No A/C needed here!

Enjoy a private swim in your own pool, read in a hammock, then cook up something in the gourmet kitchen and outdoor charcoal BBQ! Check out the local orchid gardens and coffee fields, drive to the top of an active volcano, enjoy gorgeous waterfalls, surf Costa Rica's legendary waves, hike in some of the country's many national parks, bird watch, fish, dive, check out a zip line and canopy tour, and so much, much, more.

We love Atenas for all of it's practical offerings and local charm as well as the wonderful people. Stop by the local farmer's market in town on Fridays to pick up wonderful produce, meat and fish. Perhaps one of its best attributes is the central location to the rest of the country's magnificent sites. With 8 different climactic zones, 26 national parks, and more species of birds, butterflies, and trees than the US and Canada combined, it is easy to see why people try explore as much of the country as possible when they are here. You won't be far, no matter what part of Costa Rica you wish to explore. We are located 45 minutes from the San Jose airport (where you can hop a quick flight to virtually everywhere in the country via Sansa and Nature Air, if you so desire), a 45 minute drive to the beach, and less than an hour to breath taking waterfalls and volcanoes via mystical cloud forests.

So come down and curl up in the hammock and read a book or get out there and see the country - either way, you'll love it here! And if you must stay connected with the rest of the world ...We have wireless high speed internet throughout the house inside and out. So you can even dial into conference calls and meetings via skype if you need to. Now you have no excuses .....
