"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."

"From the get go Sam and Roxanne were a pleasure to work with on our first visit to Costa Rica! We are so grateful for the thoroughness and professionalism extended to us! The house is simply gorgeous! So much so that it was hard to leave every day to explore all that Costa Rica has to offer! The design of the house was warm and welcoming and all details well thought out! We enjoyed morning coffee poolside watching birds and butterflies feed on the bananas and the numerous iguana sunning on the roof or driveway. We took advantage of the view offered on top of the guest house each evening to star gaze and enjoy the twinkling lights of outlying towns. The central location of the house made our chosen attractions easy to reach. Sam recommended that we utilize the cell phone and GPS he has available and we are certainly glad we did as most of the roads are unmarked. We ventured to the Monteverde Cloud Forest, Poas Volcano and Jaco. We are already making plans for our return and while what we will do this next trip is up in the air, our choice to stay at the Luxury Castle is a definite!"

"My family spent two weeks at Colina Paula and had a spectacular time! My daughter loved the pool and I loved waking up every morning at sunrise, opening the double doors on both sides of the house and enjoying a cup of Costa Rican coffee in the rocking chair. The location was convenient to downtown Atenas. We took white cabs to and from the city - cost only around $3 American one way. We got connected with Bunki Tours and took three personal tours led by Marian and Aad; ziplining, Toledo coffee plantation tour, Poas volcano and Waterfall Gardens. All trips were excellent and much nicer than going on a bus with a bunch of other tourists. The caretakers, Piet and Yvonne, were very accommodating. Piet was willing to pick us up from the airport at 1:15am. We will certainly visit Costa Rica again and will likely stay at Colina Paula! Thanks!"

"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."
