Atenas cabin description
The main casita (928 square feet) is located on a large property in the hills just 2 miles from the center of Atenas. The casita is part of a secure, residential development of custom-built homes bordering a protected ecological reserve. The main casita has a spacious living area with satellite tv, wireless internet access and a fully equipped kitchen. The master bedroom has a king sized bed (or optional 2 single beds) with an attached bathroom. Relax on the covered balcony with a cup of world famous Costa Rican coffee.
Come enjoy the peaceful serenity and the wonderful views of mountains and valleys from the hammock or the rocking chairs on the large covered patio close to the main house. Take a refreshing dip in the solar heated pool and release the stress and tension of your everyday life or barbecue viewing the valley. Meditate and practice yoga on the top of the property's hill.
Atenas is just 25 minutes west of San Jose (SJO) airport and an hour from the Pacific coast. There are various shops, markets, banks, post office, drug stores, eating places, bakeries and other amenities within walking distance or a $3.00 US taxi ride.
The property is electric-gated, and there is a caretaker and his wife that live on the premises for added security. She is also available for housekeeping, cooking, massage for a very reasonable price.
There is a hiking trail perfect for active guests. If you are lucky, you may see sloths and monkeys. Toucans, hummingbirds, parakeets and other wild birds, iguanas can be viewed right from the balcony.
The temperature is a mild 70F/21C to 80F/27C during the day and never below 65F/18C at night, so bring your shorts and t-shirts, a wind breaker, your tennis shoes and sandals, and visit Costa Rica, the land of the 'Pura Vida' or 'Pure Life'.

Paradise is true!
Paradise is true!
I had the pleasure of staying at this apartment for 2 weeks. The scenery from this apartment is gorgeous. Saw a Toucan on my 2nd day! I was also fortunate to have found Vera as my hostess. She is very accomodating and helped me so much during my stay. I highly recommend this apartment and this hostess. It was a fantastic vacation and I look forward to my next visit to Atenas and my friend Vera.

Why the Owner Chose Atenas:
I fell in love with the country of Costa Rica, its natural beauty, climate and the friendly Tico people. There are many kinds of outdoor and cultural activities, making this an ideal vacation spot.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
This particular location offers the combination of a secluded hideaway in the mountains bordering a natural reserve with easy access to the small town of Atenas.
