About the Property

The Bamboo House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This home is surrounded by tropical paradise, with maximum privacy, and has fantastic panoramic views of the mountains and valley below. Located in a gated community with one of the few heated swimming pools in the area, near the small town of Atenas which is only 30 minutes away from the Juan Santamaria airport in San Jose. Thousands of lights across the valley come to light at night time. It is located inside a protected forestall reserve with luxurious vegetation, precious trees - like the Guanacaste (the national tree) and other flowering trees, offering a powerful mixture of colors. Wildlife is plentiful with a large variety of hummingbirds that feed daily on the flowers and Toucans.

The house has been constructed with extensive use of giant bamboo (guadua), and it is divided into two separate structures. The main structure has the large master bedroom on the 2nd floor, while the living/dining rooms, modern kitchen with all appliances are on the main floor. Within this main house there is a separate den/study room on a lower level that provides an additional relaxing area to enjoy.

The 2nd structure contains two separate bedrooms each with a private bath, and with a separate kitchenette. The main structure has a large wrap-around porch to provide separate areas with hammocks and rustic furniture for your enjoyment. This is a great area for use of the gas grill and to enjoy some meals outdoors. The lush garden area will add to your enjoyment. You can relax in our large,heated pool (solar panels) with ambient temperature that is located between the two structures.

You will enjoy visiting the town of Atenas that is known for its friendly and helpful people. Visit the outdoor market that offers delicious local fruits, vegetables, and seafood or dine in one of the various cafes to taste the local food specialties. Or just go and sit in the peaceful Central Park and visit with the locals or just watch the people go by. In addition, Atenas has been rated the best place to retire abroad by AARP has been ranked by the National Geographic Magazine as having one of the best climates in the world!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Hola! My Wife and I bought this beautiful house after visiting Costa Rica and plan to retire here one day. We currently live in Bermuda and enjoy travelling extensively, however, coming back to our Shangri-La in Atenas is always a delight. We hope you will enjoy our home while we are away.

Why the Owner Chose Atenas, Costa Rica:
We initially experienced visiting other areas of Costa Rica and later found that Atenas had more peace and tranquility with a better climate. No air conditioning or heating needed here. Atenas is more strategically located to enjoy all the things people like to do. There are many exciting places to visit on relatively short trips to the beaches, golf courses, volcanoes, tropical gardens, zoo, or just having fun exploring.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Begin each day with the sounds of different birds singing nearby like one of the many Toucans. Enjoy watching them feeding on the property. Relax around the pool or in one of our hammocks just relaxing or planning what to do. Enjoy seeing the wildlife coming to our huge Guanacaste tree at the back of our house. Go on some interesting hikes on trails near the property. Be amazed at all the interesting photos you can take to record your visit and don't forget to enjoy a cup of the locally grown coffee - it is amazing!
