About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths (Sleeps 10)

This newly built beautifully designed home has Costa Rican flair, modern amenities and is only a couple of minutes drive into Atenas .Only 1/2 hour from San Jose airport, less than an hour to Jaco Beach and 1.5 hours to the Poas volcano Casa Tranquility is the perfect spot enjoy Costa Rican culture. Atenas was designated the "Best Climate in the World" by National Geographic. While Atenas and the Alajuela province is home to nearly year round festivals, the famous Ox Cart parade, Holiday festivities and Independence Days are truly memorable. Even a Costa Rican fresh market for all those must haves just a few minutes from the house. Sip your evening beverages on the terrace, watch the family in the pool and gaze down the tranquil valley farms to the lights of Atenas below. Mountain ridgelines are in view, horses graze below and the Jocote tree above the pool draws in songbirds to serenade you, whether at the outdoor breakfast bar, BBQ by the pool or while preparing your meals in the well equipped expansive kitchen. The home features 2 separate entrances, one with a covered carport which opens directly to the upper level (very convenient for those with walking difficulty) containing the large kitchen, main dining area, master bedroom 1.5 baths and a Hideabed couch. Another entrance gate goes directly down to the pool level, 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths, 1 Hideabed couch and living area, all of which open directly on the pool itself. There is ample parking at this level and is perfect for that family BBQ around the pool. Come to Casa Tranquility. We know you will return again, and again. PURA VIDA!

Casa Tranquility~ Gorgeous Hillside View And Only 1.4km To Atenas!
average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews

Awesome place! Recently built and spotless. Out in the country, but close enough to walk to town.

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of this home do not do it justice. It is much larger and nicer than what I expected. The grounds were perfectly manicured and just beautiful along with the views. There were nine of us and plenty of space for everyone. We have rented many vacation homes over the years in Costa Rica and the States. This was definitely one of the nicest. No musty smell, dampness, or cleanliness issues that you can't find out about until you get there. There is a caretaker couple that live next to the home. They were very warm and welcoming and seem to know just about everyone. The agent that manages the property was also quick to respond to some minor inconveniences. I was a little hesitant to rent the place without a single previous review, but I'm glad that we took a chance. I'm sure that once word gets out, it won't be so easy to book.

Why George Tanley chose Atenas

We fell in love with the expansive layout, the cool breezes, the lush landscaping.and the availability to be up on the hillside viewing farms, valley below, Atenas in the distance and the lovely mountains beyond. Love the 3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, easy pool access, gorgeous kitchen and evenings on the terrace...Pure enjoyment..
