"I am another first time user of VRBO and if this is what we should expect, I will only use this site for future travel. We arrived in the afternoon and after driving up the mountain, we weren’t sure what to expect. Never in a million years did we imagine that we would be staying at such an incredible place. The pictures really don’t do it justice. The home was amazing, the landscaping was beautifully manicured and the view was spectacular. We were here to celebrate our 10 year anniversary and we couldn’t have asked for anything better. We enjoyed the pool and Jacuzzi as we watched the sun set and loved cooking our meals in such a beautiful kitchen, which was perfectly stocked with cooking utensils, coffee maker and grinder, blender, etc.
The location was perfect too! Away from the town but not too far away that you couldn’t go shopping at the supermarket or into the town for the many restaurants and shops.
I also want to say how easy it was to make this happen. Joe was great in answering my questions, talking with me on the phone and making sure I felt very comfortable with our stay. I just can’t say enough good things. We can’t wait to come back and bring our family. Thank you so much!!!"

"Just a great experience all around. We were a little unsure if we'd like a non-inclusive vacation but we absolutely loved this place. The house, the view, the weather...everything was perfect. Atenas is a quick downhill walk and a cheap cab ride back. Full of friendly people and great restaurants.
Sam and Roxanne go out of there way to make you sure have everything you need. And Walter (taxi and tour operator) was invaluable. Have him meet you at the airport and swing by the grocery store to pick up supplies before you even get to the house.
I can't imagine returning to an all inclusive resort after this experience. Thanks Sam and Roxanne. See you soon."

"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!"

"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'! :)"
