  • Great property near the great little town of Atenas

    "Our stay in this upscale house on the top of a hill was wonderful. The open floor-plan house with modern kitchen house has everything one needs for a place in the central highlands. An easy 30 minute drive from the San Jose airport lands one in the little town of Atenas and a five minute car ride up into the hills finds you in the heart of luxury. Atenas has everything you need to make this your base of operation to explore the central highlands. Poas Volcano is about 1.5 hour drive and Arenal Volcano is 2.5 hours. Both can be day-trips, but we stayed overnight in Arenal to get the best use of our time. Lots of other fun stuff to do in the outdoors. And returning to the house after an active day to find the pool inviting us in for a dip was a nice addition."

  • Our Honeymoon Paradise

    "My husband Tim + I visited this gorgeous property for our honeymoon & I cannot say enough about how incredible it was! After 6 months of stress & extreme planning for the wedding, I was looking for a place of solitude and relaxation where we could enjoy being, this is it! The moment you enter the home there is a sense of peace & tranquility here that is second to none. The Balinese open air design of the home allows the landscape to be a part of the house rather than being two separate spaces. The pool is the perfect refuge from the hot Costa Rican sun and when the fog rolls in and the afternoon storms hit, the hammock is the perfect place to chill out & watch the wild weather. Tim & I enjoyed the local farmer's market in Atenas and cooking in the beautiful, well appointed kitchen for most of our meals. Leticia the property manager was so sweet and helped to answer all of our questions. We took a couple of day trips to the beach and to the La Paz waterfalls and Poaz Volcano. Honestly though, our favorite part of the trip was the chance to relax and unwind. We saw so many gorgeous birds, butterflies, cows in the valley below, and even white faced monkeys who would tap on the windows of the house in the evenings. The privacy was wonderful and we always felt very safe. The home is super clean and the gardens are perfectly maintained. Altogether, we would 100% recommend this property to anyone! Pura Vida!!"

  • Perfect vacation!

    "We are a family of 3 (couple and a 10 months baby) and we rented this house for 12 days. We needed to get away to a quiet and beautiful place. Casa Dos Leones was exactly that. Barry and Claudia gave us tones of informations and were very helpful. Everything they said turned out to be true. No bad surprises. The description and pictures gives an exact idea of what you're gonna get. Atenas is beautiful and the weather is just perfect. The house is located in the mountains surrounding the town. The view is spectacular. The house is really comfortable and spacious. We got great service from the property management (Marian and Aad). Marian took us everywhere (beach, coffee tour, La Paz, etc.) and it was really convenient with our baby. Thank you again for everything. We recommend your house very strongly. We had an amazing vacation. Pura Vida!"
