Congratulations, you've found it! The perfect place for your stay in Costa Rica.
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.

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.

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.
