Recent Atenas reviews

  • A piece of paradise

    "We arrived at Pica Flora having spent the previous few months in northwestern Costa Rica on the beach. We were a bit worried about how we would like being away from the beach but I have to say this home is the best we've stayed in during our three annual winter trips to Costa Rica! From the moment we arrived in downtown Atenas everything has been fabulous. We met Andrew and he showed us up to the house (aka our little piece of heaven). The first thing that struck us were the beautiful views of the valley. The property is lush and well laid out. The main house kitchen has everything you need for a short or long stay. The master bed is very comfortable (a huge plus in our book), and the whole house is scrupulously clean. There are views from every side of the wrap-around terrace and the view of the lights in the valley at night from the master bedroom is spectacular. The pool is beautiful for swimming, is well maintained, and you can hear the toucans while having your morning swim. The weekly staff looking after the house are very kind and thorough. We had a problem with a flat tire and one of the gardeners hooked us up with a garage that completed the repair while we waited! The casita rooms are clean and quiet, with comfortable beds. Andrew has been incredibly helpful throughout our stay, responding very quickly to any questions or concerns. He is a real asset. Our only regret is that, due to some events back home in Canada, we have to leave earlier than planned. We would highly recommend "The Bamboo House" for anyone wanting a luxurious getaway in a beautiful setting. Atenas is only a short taxi ride (2-3$) down the hill"

  • First Class

    "Usually on these rentals in Costa Rica a place is a step down from the pictures when you walk in. Not this place! This place is first class and I want to go back! Fabulous view, nice people handling the house, classy and best of all the beds are amazingly comfortable- which is something I find not so common in Costa Rica. Hard to beat this place!"

  • Peace among the butterflies and birds.

    "We live in San Jose and Atenas is one of our favourite places to visit, it is such a gorgeous little town with so much of what makes Costa Rica unique. The cottage is the perfect place to stay. The views are incredible and the floor to ceiling windows mean you can enjoy them from the second you wake until you decide to sleep. On the first stay we spent the entire day on the balcony bird watching and butterfly spotting. The gardens are mature and attract a lot of wildlife so you won't want to go anywhere. The cottage has everything you need for a relaxing visit; fully stocked kitchen, fast wifi, netflix on a massive tv, bath to properly chill out, really comfortable bed - amazing! On the Sunday we spent the day in the hotel grounds as part of the price. You can choose from 3 pools, play tennis, mini-golf or just enjoy a beer and, again, the wildlife. If you are coming to Atenas I 100% recommend you stay in this beautiful property and enjoy the peace and quiet that makes Costa Rica so 'pura vida'! :)"

  • Enchanting!

    "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!"
