"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."

"For the last 8 years we've been nearly every year at Finca Miramonte and it was and is like a home for us.
It is ideal as a base to discover the whole country and to start adventurous trips from here. So much you can reach in a short drive: oceans, volcanoes, mountains and the capital city. But also it is one of the best places we know to relax, to read and write. The sensational garden with lots of tropical fruits, the nice pool, the fully equipped house and the nice walks on and around the big finca makes this place perfect for individualists who don't need all day animation. Also the very warm support of the owners M. and B. makes this place so comfortable. We highly recommend it!"

"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??"
