"The house is beautiful and incredibly peaceful. It was perfectly well stocked with all we needed in terms of cooking, heading to the beach, etc. The owners provided a great book with things to do and see and where to eat. We even had a wonderful dinner at the house one night cooked by the housekeeper, absolutely delicious!"

"In April, we four friends spent a week at Casa Blais. The views, the breeze, the hammock, the wraparound porch, the pool, the birds, the iguanas, the hammock, the peace and quiet, the rocking chairs, the loungers – all was fabulous. The temperatures were perfect and not a bug in sight!
The house itself was well equipped, very clean and plenty of space for us. There was a TV room downstairs but I don’t think we ever turned on the TV – the view from the porch was all the entertainment we needed. The separate 2 bed/2 bath casita was very nice and offered additional privacy. The house is in a gated community (safe!) and has spectacular views over the valley. At night, the views were equally fabulous showing us the lights from the surrounding towns.
The location was perfect, close to San Jose (30 min) and easy for day trips. We did do an overnight road trip to Arenal – it is too far to go for a day, but we had day trips to Manual Antonio National Park and various local sites. Oscar, our driver, was amazing – he picked us up every day, we got in his comfortable van and didn’t have to think about anything. Highly recommend to have a driver and especially one as knowledgeable and personable as Oscar.
We walked into Atenas one day (20-25 minutes) for lunch. You might want to take a taxi back ($4) as its uphill all the way!!! Good restaurants in the town – check out TripAdvisor for options. We had takeout pizza the first night – that was an easy option and delicious. Everyone speaks English so it is very easy to communicate.
Did I mention the hammock??"

"Not only is the place absolutely beautiful with amazing views but Diana and Leticia were great to work with and very helpful (and knowledgeable) about things to see and do in Atenas and surrounding areas. Amazing experience... you will not go wrong with this place."
