Year Purchased: 2013

About: Andrew Partain, the property's adminitrator lives near the home and is available for a guest's assistance in the home and helpful with coordinating activities throughout Costa Rica. He spent most of his life growing up in Ecuador and Florida and spent 10 years in California prior to moving to Atenas.

Why Atenas:
After visiting other areas of Costa Rica I later found that Atenas had more peace and tranquility than many other areas and ideal with the ideal cool climate that the area has to offer. No air conditioning or heating needed here. Atenas is more strategically located to enjoy all the things people like to do. There are many exciting places to visit on relatively short trips to the beaches, volcanoes, tropical gardens, zoo, or just having fun exploring town.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Begin each day with the sounds of different birds singing nearby. Enjoy watching them feeding on the property. Relax around the pool or in one of our lounge chairs just relaxing or planning what to do each day. Enjoy seeing the wildlife coming to our wonderfully landscaped gardens throughout the property. Go on some interesting hikes near the property. Be amazed at all the interesting photos you can take to record your perfect visit. Enjoying a cup of the locally grown organic coffee is always a plus.
