Sam and Roxanne are very attentive and always available to answer any questions you may have. We definitely plan to go back to Costa Rica and we will definitely stay here again!"

"My wife and I had a wonderful three month stay in Costa Rica, January through March in 2015.
We stayed in three different locations and enjoyed our time at Hisano’s more than anywhere else. It is centrally located in Costa Rica, just outside Atenas, on an excellent bus route, about 20 minutes to Town for a cost of 350 colonies, about 75 cents. We used Hisano’s as a base and travelled frequently to San Jose for the symphony and museum experiences, as well as to the Pacific coast beaches, down to Jaco and Quepos/Manual Antonio National Park...we did day trips as well as overnight adventures.
We rented the bungalow at Hisano’s and found it to be immaculate...this is rare in Costa Rica. The insects were controlled regularly through weekly maid service and included fresh linens and a thorough cleaning. The cabina is fully equipped, with two ample bedrooms, large living/dining room area, great kitchen, adequate bathroom, huge covered patio area with table, chairs and a hammock that I couldn’t keep my wife out of. It is modern, bright white tile throughout, attractively decorated inside with Wi-Fi and a cd player. There was no cable TV but we enjoyed Netflicks and other programming through our computers, so not a big deal especially when you consider local programming.
The grounds surrounding the accommodation are beautiful and well maintained, even throughout the dry season, so the hundreds of plants carefully selected and planted by Hisano herself were always green and blooming. Most other places the grass is brown and plants suffering a bit from the lack of rain.
The pool is a short walk down the path and was small but adequate in size and always immaculate.
You will find Hisano herself to be a warm and welcoming host who respects your privacy but is always there when you need her and is always willing to help.
We enjoyed our stay immensely and would recommend this accommodation to anyone."

"We have stayed at many VRBO's and this by far is our favorite. Barry and Claudia are great people and helped make this trip very memorable. Aad and Marian are a sweet couple who did everything they could to make our stay comfortable. I would highly recommend having them pick you up from the airport - that made the first day so much easier (and it would be difficult to find Casa Dos Leones on your own for the first time). The views are incredible. The home is very modern and had everything we could have wanted. The location was perfect, close enough for many easy day trips with enough time at the end of the day to enjoy the home, pools and views. We rented a car and driving was easy enough, but you must add the GPS in your rental, we could not have done it without it. Beside the fact that this home is everything (and more) than the description states, Barry, Claudia, Aad, and Marian are the most helpful and kind people you could ask for. They gave us excellent suggestions, tips, ideas, and information to make our stay very comfortable and memorable. They were quick to answer any of our questions and all of their suggestions are right on. When we go back to Atenas, this will be our #1 choice for a rental. Thank you Barry, Claudia, Aad and Marian - you are wonderful people and your help and home made our vacation a true paradise. Anyone who choses to rent this home will not be disappointed."

Wonderful 1st visit to Costa Rica - Wonderful home
"This was our 1st visit to Costa Rica and what a beautiful place - Joe thank you for sharing your home and retreat - it was absolutely WONDERFUL - we stayed 7 days in Atenas and had a great time - we used Walts Taxi and Tour service for all our needs - Walt is wonderful, Luis our Atenas taxi driver was very professional, friendly and always on time. We took (3) tours with Walt, Miguel and Jennifer they were absolutely the greatest tour guides we could have - we did 7 Tico Town Tour - was alot of interesting information, San Jose town tour - not our favorite and would not do unless you just want to spend the day seeing the capital of Costa Rica - lastly we did Poas Volcano and La Paz gardens and waterfall - WONDERFUL would recommend this trip, all day trip but well worth it - the Volcano was wonderful land the gardens were stunning. A long hike to the waterfalls but well worth it.
Joe was wonderful at communicating with us and making sure we had what we needed for our trip - Elias was a great groundskeeper - he was always there when we needed him but very descreet when we were on the property and just doing our own thing - he lives on property so is there anytime you need him. Again a great house and very peaceful and quiet - we did miss having TV but made netflex work for us and the speakers for our music was very relaxing - Time to read a good book and Joe has a great selection. We cooked meals at the house on the BBQ and kitchen that has everything you will need but the food - Ate at Kaye's gringo kitchen - great place to meet other expats and great conversations - they treat you like family, also ate at La Finca great pizza. Farmers market is a must for veggies and fruits (Fridays only)."
