Atenas house description

When you read our client reviews, you will see that everyone agrees that no pictures nor explanations do our property justice. You have to be here to understand and feel what our property is about.

6 years ago, we undertook the daunting task of developing 18 acres of raw land into what is now a lush, tropical breath taking paradise.
Quinta Colina Paula is in one of the best residential neighborhoods in Atenas: barrio Mercedes. We are located 25 min. driving from the SJO Airport and are only 4min. driving away from the center of Atenas where you will find supermarkets, gas station, banks, park, churches, bakeries etc..
In developing this property we have spared no expense. We offer the finest of materials (such as native woods), designer furniture from Japan and Indonesia, professional kitchen equipment etc...Our home offers 360 degrees of unobstructed, spectacular tropical Costa Rican views: you see the mountains, the volcanoes in the distance, the ancient trees in our back yard. Our house was designed to take full advantage of the climate, which by the way, is rated to be the best climate in the world according to National Geographic. All windows and French doors open to assure a constant cross breeze. We spend our days on our 3 porches in the rocking chairs and hammocks. The pool is totally private and surrounded by tropical foliage.

For your peace of mind and to make your trip as easy and relaxing as possible, we offer drivers to pick you up at the airport and drive you to our place, contacts for car rentals and people to take you on tours. We have a property manager who is bilingual and caretakers who live at the front of the property.

We can assure you that we have tried-and succeeded- our best in creating a peace of heaven for ourselves and for you, our guests. Do come see for yourself and you will understand what every other client has said: you have to be here to see and feel it.

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About: My name is Tonia and I am Belgian. I have been living in the US for 28 years but am a world traveler at heart. My quinta in CR is my home away from home.

                  Why Atenas:
                  Initially I thought living on the Pacific Ocean was what I wanted. However, it is too humid for me there. Living in the mountains, especially Atenas offers the ultimate climate for me: warm and comfortable during the day and cool at night. Buying this property as a bare piece of land and developing it with my heart and soul has taught me life lessons. This property was an expression of my dream to live peacefully, surrounded by nature, in a house that has soul and is a reflection of me. I like privacy, yet like to be close to town. This property makes me happy.
