  • 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'! :)"

    "We stayed here with our son and his girlfriend and had an absolutely wonderful time. The home is as lovely as it looks in the pictures! What we didn't realize is that the two bedrooms are in two separate buildings - making it perfect for two couples giving each great privacy. The main house is in the middle. The view is spectacular and we loved sitting on the veranda at night watching the lighting show off in the distance! We took advantage of the offer to have someone come in an cook for us and the meal was delicious and it made for a relaxing time for us! I tend to be skeptical of reviews and if you are like me, I hope you'll take this review to heart!! Thank you so much for a very memorable time!"

  • Spacious and comfortable home in a great location! Beautiful views and gated with privacy.

    "Pictures do not do this home any justice! Even after looking at the pictures many times and singing along to their video tour :) we were still in awe upon arrival. The house sits mountain side above the town of Atenas. The town is within walking distance, but consider approximately 20 mins walk each way. The property is gated at front of driveway, landscape beautiful and lush with a lime tree and mango tree. There is a house next door, sometimes could hear neighbors but never saw them. Nothing in front or behind the home but gorgeous views! There is outdoor porch lighting to guide your way when arriving at night, some lighting around pool area but the rest is pretty dark. The outdoor clothes line was great for hanging swim suits and towels after our adventures. A major bonus to have a washing machine! even though this wash room was outdoors, it makes complete sense considering there's no dryer. Inside the home is simply decorated and furnished, complete kitchen, three bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The two smaller bedrooms are small with closets and windows that provide nice breeze. Our eleven year old was more comfortable using the table fan provided. The master is more spacious, much larger closets, ceiling fan and AC. We never turned the AC on, the breeze from the windows and fans were just right. The master bed was the best mattress I've ever slept on! Both bathrooms were great, however we found better water pressure from the guest shower and more space for items in the master bath. The kitchen is equipped with basic essentials, even spices and things left behind. I did have to buy another kitchen sponge for dishes and hand towel. Linens provided, towels, umbrellas and misc items in the guest closet. We found the TV/living area a little lacking. The couches were fine but we found ourselves wishing there was another couch or recliner. The position of the TV is a little awkward too,high up from where your sitting. This is the only TV in the house, wifi was easily accessible. The pool and spacious outdoor areas were perfect for our early morning coffee and late night swims. We did encounter some mighty bugs outside! Gratefully everything inside was dead, mostly ants around windows. The house was clean inside and out, however some deep cleaning should be done more often. We had to seriously dust the table fan, scrub a shower head and noticed lots of dust atop kitchen cabinets. All very minor things to dismiss for this secluded piece of paradise!"

  • Everything you could possibly want. . .and much more!

    "We spent two months this summer at this amazing house! Tons of room, amazingly well equipped, huge terrace, fantastic pool. . .and on and on and on! The property is very private and beautifully maintained. The views are outstanding - I've never seen such sunsets. In a secure gated community very close to town. Loved every minute!"
