Atenas house description

You will be treated as a Blessing at Casa de Megumi with friendly greetings and all the help you need for your vacation.

Megumi is a Japanese word, which means blessing, abundance, and grace; that is how you will be treated here.

Remodeling inside and out of all three rental units (a house called Casa de Lantana, a self-contained condo-style suite called Orchid Room Suite, and a room with a full bathroom called Buena Vista) has just been completed by the new owner. Also, we manage a newly built 2-bedroom, 2-full bath guest house on the second floor in downtown Atenas, within walking distance to many places including banks, restaurants, supermarkets, etc.

Casa de Lantana is surrounded by gardens and has a large roofed patio where you can eat, work, and take a nap in a hammock. A different way of life and being! Pura vida!

Orchid Room Suite also has a roofed patio, located right next to the pool, surrounded by tropical gardens and mature trees. Seeing beautiful night lights over the pool with a glass of wine in your hand at the terrace can be very romantic.

And, the brand new 2-bedroom, 2-full bathroom, a spacious walk-in-closet, living room with a dining area and a kitchen with a washer, Cable TV, WiFi is conveniently located in the heart of Downtown Atenas, from which you can go to anywhere within walking distance.

Our vacation rentals in Rio Grande site are located in a 6+ acre property filled with various kinds of tropical flowers, plants, and mature trees. You will be able to watch birds and animals, and soul-touching, far-away ocean views and sunsets from the office in Casa Grande.

You will be staying at a completely fenced and gated property for your privacy and security. Our pool is always clear and well maintained for your enjoyment. And, you can park your car in a large parking lot saved for your guests.

Friendly housekeeping, maid services, laundry services, authentic Japanese food made by the Japanese owner, typical Costa-Rican food, massage therapies, and professional coaching sessions are available upon advance requests.

We understand how important high-speed Internet or WiFi is to our guests. Thus, it is offered to our guests as a complimentary service in all rental units: inside and outside of the units as well as at the pool side. Your desire to be connected with your loved ones and your business is understood and respected in our place.

For your adventures, various kinds of tours can be arranged: volcanoes, hot springs, beaches, canopy tours, butterfly garden, orchid gardens, coffee plantations, hiking, Cloud Forest, famous churches, flea markets, museums, San Jose, Escazu, and other tourist spots.

We are only 4 miles from Atenas, which has many restaurants, supermarkets, medical and dental offices, banks, the post office, and many other places you need for ordinary living. We also have a guest house at downtown Atenas for those guests whose primary focus is convenience.

Atenas has many retirees from the U.S., Canada, and Europe and is known to have a very active, supportive expat community which cannot be found elsewhere.

Many of our guests are retirees, young parents with young to school-age children, and some others are location-independent professionals who work online from our place. We understand both their needs.

If you are looking for a laid-back, relaxing, affordable and beautiful accommodation for your adventurous vacation or for your online professional work in Costa Rica, yes, you are at the right place!

Welcome Home at Casa de Megumi, where you will be treated as a BLESSING!

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2008

                          About the owner: What I want to create here in this world is to do the best I can, no matter what I do, to make a difference in the hearts of people I come to contact with. I believe that every one of us is a blessing, a special being, with special gifts to give and receive. That is how I meet and serve all our guests, friends, and family. It is my sincere hope to meet as many blessings as possible in this life time. Hisano Bell

                          Why the Owner Chose Atenas:
                          Because of the world's best climate and beautiful sunset scenery from Casa Grande in a 6+ acre lot, in a very friendly Tico neighborhood. This was exactly what we wanted, after having traveled to many places in Costa Rica. This is one of the most beautiful, friendliest, and safest places we have been to and at the same time it is close to all major facilities we may need, such as good hospitals and international malls, especially since we now have a new highway directly to San Jose and Escazu in only 25 minute driving or to the beaches on the Pacific Coast.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          You can relax and work at the same time here with the pool and high-speed Internet connection inside and outside of the rental units and around the pool. You will be welcomed just like when you are going back to your hometown, where everyone treats you like their own family members. Now, we also manage a newly build beautiful, Western style apartment in downtown Atenas, within walking distance to everything. From this location, you can go to anywhere by bus easily.
