"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."

"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!"

Third time staying here and it will not be the last. Esteban, his wife Monica and Danny the guide
"Esteban, his wife Monica and Danny the guide for the ATV tour/journey to the hot springs and horseback ride are fantastic hosts. We had a problem with one of the tours due to the rising river and Esteban ensured that we received a complete refund.
Danny is a guide with extensive knowledge of the flora and fauna in the area. We saw, sloths, monkeys many types of birds including a tree full of Scarlet Macaws.
This is our third time there, we have gone with our family and with other couples. It has been a hit with everyone."
