About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 full Bathrooms, 1 combination Dining Room/Office Space

Casa Dellio sits on a half acre lot in a rural neighborhood. This single family home is completely fenced with a gated entry. You will have the feeling of living in the country while being just minutes from the center of town and close to public transportation. Our location makes a perfect home base for your entire Costa Rica vacation or use it as a peaceful retreat for rest and relaxation. Barrio Jesus is a friendly mountain town with its own water supply, so we have never had any issues with water availability like some areas in Costa Rica have.

Our little town: Atenas is a lovely town full of friendly, helpful people. There is a beautiful park in the center surrounded by a variety of stores. Here you will find everything from bakeries to hardware. It even has its own health club and video store. There are an abundance of excellent restaurants with reasonable prices to choose from. It is centrally located in Costa Rica making it an easy trip to the many wonders that Costa Rica has to offer. Less than an hour away you will find hot springs, river rafting, zip lines, a zoo, horseback riding, rain forests, waterfalls, volcanoes, the Pacific Ocean, butterfly farms, coffee plantations, the list goes on and on. There is something for everyone to enjoy in this beautiful location.

Atenas, one of the best places to retire: Recently Atenas, Costa Rica was selected as one of the best places outside the U.S. to retire by AARP, CNBC and others. Come and see for yourself what makes Atenas and Casa Dellio so special!

NEWS FLASH!: We just added a 750 square foot concrete deck connected to the house, in the back yard.

We also added other awesome upgrades as well; including a Rancho (covered porch area) on the new concrete deck. Please contact us if you are interested in a long or short term rental.

Paridise in the Mountians!

  • 5 of 5

I just spent 4 days at Dean and Lindsey's beautiful Atenas home. It has been a wonderful experience. To wake up with cool fresh air each morning with the sounds of the tropical birds is magical. There are also locals in the area who own horses, cows, roosters, and sheep, ect., and these sound as well can be heard from time to time throughout the day. The interior of the home is very comfortable and warm with beautiful wood ceilings and

walls, comfortable

bed, and very clean. The patio in the back is fantastic for just sitting and enjoying nature . The grounds are full of flowing hibiscus and other exotics and trees and is very private.

The neighborhood is clean, organized, and very beautiful over looking the valley below and other mountian ranges. An extaordiny view!!

the cafe casita and other local restaurants have offered very delicious food and the service and hospitality of the locals has been outstanding.

The location is perfect for quick access to the airport and short trips anywhere in Costa Rica it seems. I look forward to returning here and also telling my friends about this great experience. I am definitely coming back. Thank-You again for having me as a guest at your little piece of Paridise in the Mountians of Costa Rica.
