Property description

Delightfully relaxing Balinese-inspired villa with three separate pavilions (living, master bedroom, and guest bedroom) custom-designed to enjoy inside/outside living in your private oasis of sun, lush gardens, hummingbirds, butterflies, toucans, and sparkling pool waters. Nestled high on a peaceful hilltop, the panoramic views are fantastic: to the northeast, the Atenas Valley with Póas, Barva and Irazú volcanoes in the background, to the southwest the Rio Grande Valley and to the east, the Central Valley. Ideally located in a gated eco-residential community, a thirty-minute drive from San Jose airport, this exquisitely crafted three-pavilion tropical hideaway is close to everything Costa Rica has to offer. Invite family and friends to enjoy the spacious pool and spa, lounge on the terrace with a good book, or surf the WiFi from the hammock.

Location: 26 miles northwest of San Jose; 15 miles west of the international airport and 43 miles northeast of Jaco Weather: Warm during the day; mild at night. The dry season runs from December through mid May. A stroll through the immaculate, palm-lined central park or lunch at one of the many typical small cafes serving local food in town awaits visitors to Atenas. Located on the Central Valley’s western edge, Atenas is a slice of quintessential small town Costa Rican life. With just 5,000 inhabitants (17,000 including the suburbs), Atenas is famous for having one of the best climates in the world, according to National Geographic. The words “El Mejor Clima del Mundo” are emblazoned on every Atenas bus; a valid claim as daily temperatures hover around 80 degrees and dip into the 60s at night. Temperatures: Daily averages 77 to 86 °F. Evenings vary from 62-70 °F. Altitude: 2600 feet above sea level.

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Hello! We're Nancy and Joe Rees... and we love Costa Rica. We recently built a beautiful house in Atenas. We're looking forward to retiring here, but until then we would love to share our peaceful retreat with you. Thanks for considering our house.

Why the Owner Chose Atenas:
We built our home in central Costa Rica, near a small town called Atenas, for easy access to the international airport, wonderful climate, traditional Costa Rican culture, and its' strategic location, the perfect spot for exploring all the wonders Costa Rica has to offer.

We enjoy swimming in the pool, day trips to the beach, local restaurants, soaking in the outdoor jacuzzi, yoga, zip lining, napping in the hammock, hiking, bird watching, the local farmer's market, white water rafting ...and much, much, more.
