Atenas villa description
Our home is located in the beautiful town of Atenas, in the Central Valley of Costa Rica, just 35 minutes from Juan Santamaria International Airport.
We have 3 bedrooms, two downstairs by the pool, one with a Queen bed and one with a trundle bed that can be 2 singles or a King. The master bedroom is upstairs. There is a magnificent waterfall outside of the master and queen bedrooms, which guests love hearing as they go to sleep!
As we are only 9 degrees off the Equator, our seasons are more like the Southern Hemisphere, with summer running from November-May, and the "green" or rainy season, running from May-October. Days in the rainy season are usually sunny and warm until mid-afternoon, when it rains for a few hours.
We have no need for either air conditioning or heating in any season, as Atenas is known to have the best climate in the world!
Our location in the Central Valley makes exploration of this magnificent country very easy. Pacific coast beaches are a bit over an hour away; volcanoes are nearby; San Jose and its many museums and great restaurants are only about 30 minutes away.
We offer an oasis from the cares of the world, with nature surrounding the house, rain forests nearby, and absolute privacy.
Keywords: Nature lovers Paradise; Solar-heated pool; central location for Costa Rica exploration.

A beautifull house
A beautifull house
This is a beautifull and spacious house, well-kept garden and pool, breathtaking view. Very quiet and safe neighborhood. You are in the center of Atenas within 10 minutes (by car). We enjoyed our stay at the house very much. This house is highly recommended.

Year Purchased: 2006
About: Jim and Lois have traveled extensively around the world and have lived in Atenas for 6 years; semi-retired, and developing property here. Prior to Costa Rica, we had our own energy and water conservation business, working with utilities throughout the US. We return frequently to the US, as we own homes in GA and CA.
We fell in love with Costa Rica after attending a destination wedding here. Our former sister-in-law had moved here, so it was easy to connect with the vast ex-pat community here. We have made many close friends here, and love entertaining, the main sport of the ex-pats!
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Our very private home sits on over over 2 acres of natural landscape. The private swimming pool is solar heated, so it can be enjoyed year-round. We also have a very kind and capable caretaker, who lives with his wife at the top of our long drive and can assist you with any of your needs on the property, communicating in Spanish. Our dear friends, Harriet and Richard, will also be available to you to help you with any questions you may have, in English or Spanish.
