  • Beyond our expectations!

    "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!"

  • Fabulous Open Air House

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the house. The open air aspect was wonderful...being able to open everything up during the day. Every day when we returned from our excursion, it was wonderful to have the pool to cool off in. Water was perfect temperature. And in the evenings, the hot tub was the location of choice. On the first evening, we were sitting in the hot tub and a tarantula came walking by. We are into the wildlife, so watched each day. Saw toucans one day near the house. Also had a resident huge frog/toad (don't know which one) that came at night and sat near one of the lights catching bugs. The house had all pots, pans, cookware, appliances that we needed. We ate out mostly, but cooked a few meals in. Elias was wonderful and willing to help out in any way. He went to the farmers market for us on Friday since we were not arriving until Saturday and bought a huge variety of fruit and vegetables for us, which were delicious. Highly recommend this house if you are looking for a place to stay near Atenas."

  • Wow ... Just Wow ....

    "The most obvious way to tell you how great this rental is, is to tell you that we have been back twice already and are planning a third visit. The next most obvious way to sing the praises of Diana's house, is to tell you that we've been motivated by our visit to buy our own property and build a house that steals much of its inspiration from this one. The house overlooks a valley filled with birds, and horses and cows. We wake each morning to a beautiful sunrise, have breakfast overlooking the valley and then make our plans for the day. They mostly involve not doing much -- lazing by the pool or having wine with visiting friends -- but the almost always end with dinner watching the sunset and the lights come up. This house is magical. It's perfect for a couple on a short stay or a long one. The separate casita lets your visiting friends have space of their own. And the nearby town of Atenas is just right for those who want to get away and relax. It isn't a tourist town -- it's filled with real Ticos who have their own lives. Be sure and go to the Farmer's market on Friday's for fresh produce if you are there. In any event, this house is just magic. Jaime, the gardener, and Leticia, the property manager, make it happen in every way you can want. Don't hesitate a moment ... book now. Just not the days we want!"

  • 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'! :)"
