Atenas house description

We love our new home in the hills completely surrounded by nature overlooking one of the most beautiful valleys in the world. The Costa Rican government has chosen it as one of their natural wonders and it is under their protection. We are a great home base for your Costa Rican vacation.


Mornings are peaceful, with butterflies floating on the light valley breeze, the only noise is from the birds chirping around you. Sometimes you can hear the cows and horses that live on the pastures next door as make their way down the hill to the river below, but they are your only neighbors. I love nothing better than having breakfast (made in our brand new kitchen) on the terrace just being their audience of one. During the day, you can relax poolside, sip smoothies or a glass of wine and completely remove yourself from the stress of contemporary life. But if you want to check your emails, we have Wi-Fi, and your Blackberry works in Costa Rica.

We have pocket windows that open completely to the outside world, and from all the terraces and from inside the house you see trees and green and mountains, no matter where you look. Three is a spectacular night sky, and you can view millions of stars. At certain times of the year, we sip wine at sunset and watch the distant lightning dance over the top of the mountains beyond our valley. There is complete privacy yet on the other hand there are neighbors close by.

Our little town of Atenas has wonderful restaurants, many supermarkets with Chilean and Argentinean wines, and modern American kitchen necessities. The central square is a two minute drive or fifteen minute walk from home. A farmers market where all the surrounding farmers bring delicious mangoes, veggies, colorful fruits a local specialties happens every Friday in the park.

If you are looking for a more active time away from home, butterfly farms, volcanoes rainforests, river rafting, horseback riding, are all within an easy drive. If you want to hang ten or simply stroll on the pristine Costa Rica Beaches or swim in the warm Pacific water of famous surfing beaches like Jaco and Playa Hermosa which are only 45 minutes away.

It's no accident that Costa Ricans' motto is 'Pura Vida'. They are lovely, well educated, warm and welcoming people.

You are going to have a great time!!!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2009

                      About the owner: Hi there, We called our property La Luna Vista because of it's total connection with nature. There is no where you look that you don't see trees or mountains. But when I built the home, I wanted it to be a "Home", with all the modern conveniences in the kitchen and with Wi-Fi, so I could (for work) stay connected with the rest of the world. It's the best of all worlds! I come at least once a month to make sure the house is perfect, but I have wonderful property managers who will meet you and show you around. It's good to have a contact in a foreign country!

                      Why the Owner Chose Atenas:
                      I love Costa Rica. The people are lovely, they have a high literacy rate, a great education system and a great health care system. Our home is in the town of Atenas, with one of the loveliest town squares in all of South America. Because we live on a mountain, you'd never know we were two minutes away from a great bottle of wine and 30 minutes away from a hospital run by Baylor University!! And of course, near beaches, rainforests and volcanoes.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      OUr town of Atenas, is one of the best central locations from which to explore Costa Rica and our location is the best in Atenas. Volcanoes, river rafting, the beach, butterfly farms, etc., are only a days trip from atenas. And atenas has tons of great restaurants and 4 grocery stores and a centra market and a fun farmer's market on Friday. Downtown atenas is a l5 min walk or 2 min drive from the house, yet the house is completely private - you can swim and walk around the terraces in complete privacy overlooking a valley that is a nature preserve. It's the best of what Costa Rica has to offer.
