"Wow! What a home--the views of the valley and hills are amazing, day or night. Most nights we'd sit on the expansive patio enjoying a drink and nature's peaceful sounds. Open up all the pocket doors and you feel like you're living in a luxurious tree house, no one around to disturb your day. The home is beautifully decorated and is located away from other homes in the area--you can't see or hear anyone else.
This home was easy to book, the owner is responsive and Leticia the house manager is lovely and helpful. The home is an easy drive from the San Jose airport and a great home base for exploring Costa Rica. From the home we drove to the Poas Volcano, Sarchi (quaint artisan town), Jaco and Puntaranus (beach towns), Zoo Ave and so much move. The pool is great and you can hike from the house to coffee and mango farms.
The climate truly is perfect in Atenas, beautiful in the day (even in the green season, just an occasional afternoon rain) and perfect at night (no air conditioning needed!).
We were visited by a wonderfully sweet cat, with a physical disability that will win your heart over in a minute. She stays outside and is very courteous.
We would love to come back and likely will--a perfect vacation!"

"I cannot say enough good things about this property and the owners! The house has the most amazing view and is very beautiful. Sam and Roxanne are very attentive and always available to answer any questions you may have. We definitely plan to go back to Costa Rica and we will definitely stay here again!"

"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!"

"This is the ultimate vacation in a beautiful country of Costa Rica. Nothing is more precious than friends & family gathering to create memory of a lifetime. Designed with such in mind, this house is located on the top of a hill, and has stunning views, in a secluded, gated, and private neighborhood, yet it is only 20 minutes to drive to area beaches & other attractions. The bedrooms are spacious, the kitchen is fully equipped, and the back yard and pool area are amazing! We enjoyed coming back to this calming house after busy days of sightseeing. Pool area is so pretty and green/turquoise water is refreshingly cooler than the ocean. Beautiful birds and star gazers are in heaven with no pollution to night sky. The only weird thing is that sun sets at 6pm....equator is really close...so 12h of daylight is all you get...we got used to it real quick and enjoyed getting up at 7:30 and fell asleep way earlier than back at home in Canada. The home feels very secure and has a safe in the bedroom so all the stuff is 100% ok to leave. We however did not lock almost anything.
Sometimes the pictures of the house don't really live up to the expectations but that was not the case with this house in San Mateo. As soon as you enter the house, you are blown away by the open layout and beauty of the house/patio/pool and the panoramic views from the patio! I can truly say this is the most beautiful house we have ever lived in!
We had the most amazing time staying at this house! The house is even nicer than a hotel, everything is so well organized, not only in the house, but the owners also send you a complete and very helpful welcome guide. Everything was perfect and exceeded our expectations. This home is truly a gem and we will definitely come back.
