About the Property
Cozy Furnished 1 Bedroom/1 Bath Apartment, Sleeps 4, with WiFi and Pool
Our Casita Limón is a small fully furnished apartment located in a quiet Tico neighborhood, about 1 KM from downtown Atenas. We named it 'Casita Limón' after the delicious Creole Lime and Sweet Lemon trees growing on our property. The casita has an air conditioned bedroom with a queen size bed, and a full size futon in the living room. Linens and towels are provided, and the kitchen is fully furnished. There is a laundry room with washer and dryer, but instead of using the dryer, we encourage you to be environmentally friendly and hang clothes out to dry on clotheslines on sunny days.
The property is fully enclosed with a beautiful lawn, tropical plants & fruit trees. Help yourself to fresh orange juice every morning while in season.

Atenas has daytime temperature ranges from the upper 70°'s to upper 80°'s, with rare days in the low 90°'s. Nighttime temperatures usually stay in the 60°, but have been known to dip into the the 50°'s overnight.
We recommend you pack an umbrella if you will be with us during the Green Season from May to December.
We are a retired couple with many years of experience living in Costa Rica. We can help you plan your itinerary to visit all the 'must see & do' attractions in Costa Rica.
If you are a member of the worldwide geocaching site, you will find Casita Limón the perfect place to log a new cache find and pick up, or drop off, some travel bugs for your fellow geocachers.
While you are our guest, you will have full access to the shared outdoor living space in our 'Rancho.' It has a covered patio with tables & chairs, swing, kitchen, refrigerator, microwave, barbecue grill, stone pizza/bread oven, bathroom, shower, and pool. We think you'll find this the perfect place for entertaining and relaxing after a long day of sightseeing.
Our home is located on the same property, so we are always available when needed. You will find the Casita is perfectly positioned to offer you plenty of privacy during your stay.
Check-in after 10:00 PM is not an option unless prior arrangements have been made. If you have a late flight arrival time, we recommend you make arrangements to stay at one of the convenience hotels near the airport and check-in with us the following day.

While you are enjoying your stay with us please take care of a few of the basics:
1 - Let us know if anything needs attention or needs to be replaced. (i.e. toilet tissue, light bulbs, garbage bags, etc.)
2 - Please wash dirty dishes and wipe up any spills. We are in the tropics and share this paradise with an abundance of wildlife and insects. Ants love dirty dishes and sticky counters!
3 - Treat our home as you would your own.
We treat our dogs, Randy, Gustavo (Goose for short), and Yoli, as members of the family. We usually keep them behind a gate on our side of the property, but if you are an animal lover they will enjoy being petted. Please respect our pets.

Year Purchased: 2006
About: I spent most of my 20s here in Costa Rica. I returned to the States to raise a family and build a career, always knowing I would return to Costa Rica someday.
Why Atenas, Costa Rica:
We bought our property in 2006 and built the Casita so we would have a vacation home to visit until we were ready to retire. In 2011, my husband John and I officially retired and moved to Atenas. The first year we lived in our humble casita, while we watched our new home being built. In May of 2012, we moved into 'la casa nueva' and now our casita is available for you to rent.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The property is in a typical Tico (Costa Rican) neighborhood. The mornings brings a cacophony of bird songs and at certain times fo the year, we even hear Howler monkeys playing down near the river below our home. The Casita is located on the opposite end our our property, offering our guests total privacy. There is always some fruit available for picking on the many trees found in our garden. If you are looking for a place for total relaxation, you've found it!
