About the Property
3 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms (sleeps 6)
Set high on a ridge surrounded by a lush tropical reserve, home to parrots, toucans, sloths and monkeys, our custom built Bali style home, located in a gated eco-residential community will be your home away from home! Relax, open the doors and soak in the famous Atenas climate (best in the world according to National Geographic) with beautiful warm days and cool sleeping nights! No A/C needed here!
Enjoy a private swim in your own pool then cook up something in the gourmet kitchen and outdoor BBQ! Check out the local orchid gardens and coffee fields, or drive to the top of an active volcano, surf Costa Rica's legendary waves (just 30 minutes away with the new highway!!), hike in some of the country's many national parks, soak up private waterfalls and so much more. Perhaps one of its best attributes is it's central location to the rest of the country's magnificent sites!! High speed Wi-Fi is available 24/7 throughout.
What to do !:): Our bilingual property manager can help you plan all kinds of day trips and overnights if you wish to explore as much of this beautiful country as possible. Costa Rica has so much to offer, from trips to nearby cloud forests, checking out its many volcanoes - active or not, hiking breathtaking waterfalls, exploring many of its dense jungles, taking a catamaran to a private island, or even do a little of it's famous deep sea fishing. The wild life will astound you. There are many adrenaline charged activities like white water rafting, zip lines ATV riding, or jet skiing in the open ocean for those who relax by supercharging. For those who wish to relax a little more gently, take a canopy walk, go birding, check out the beautiful wild orchids and bromeliads everywhere, shop in farmer's markets, listen to huge flocks of parrots gather in the town square at dusk, visit a local coffee farm and roasting plant, or get a massage by the pool - happily, we've got that covered too! Or just stay at the villa and disconnect from the fast pace world and rediscover the wonders that the natural world has to offer.

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: Liz Duffy is a freelance food stylist based in New York City. Judd Pilossof is a freelance food photographer also in New York. We work for food magazines, cookbooks and advertising clients. We have 2 daughters and come to Costa Rica as often as possible. We built our home in Atenas because of the unique views, climate and wonderful small town (non touristy) feel that we enjoy. We have put our heart and soul in making this house our own style and we think you will love it too.
Why the Owner Chose Atenas, Costa Rica:
In 2006 we were looking for a special property as a second home in Costa Rica. Pica Flora, the name of our small community outside of the town of Atenas was conceived as a Bali style home design. Bali has a similar climate to Atenas. The property is based on a mountain ridge with several 100 year old trees with breath taking views. We have spent 10 years customizing the house with unique furniture, art work and landscaping.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
In 2015 we built a a third bedroom on top of a deck that overhangs the ridge mountain. This was to enhance the spectacular view we already had. The new bedroom has an indoor/outdoor shower which we know your going to love. The deck also has a pergola for dinning with a BBQ near by.
