Property description

Casa Colibri de Atenas is conveniently located 25 minutes from Juan Santamaria Int'l Airport (SJO), 35 minutes from San Jose, 45 minutes from beaches, 1.5hrs from Poas Volcano, 2 hrs from Arenal Volcano and Hot Springs, 2 hrs from Manuel Antonio, and 2.5 hrs from Monteverde Cloud Forest. We are centrally located to nearly all the best sights and activities in Costa Rica.

Our home is nestled on the Pica Flora ridge in Atenas, where we have fabulous weather all year long. Conde Nast and National Geographic have dubbed our town as having the 'best climate in the world'.

Casa Colibri is equipped with all the amenities you'll need to make it your home away from home. WiFi, Cable TV, fully stocked kitchen with all your cooking needs. Bedroom 1 on the first floor has a king size bed, large closet space, en suite shower/toilet, and direct access to the outdoor jacuzzi. Bedroom 2 on the second floor has a queen size bed plus a single bed, large work desk, walk-in closet, luxurious en suite bathroom with double sinks, shower, and jacuzzi and a luxurious balcony overlooking the central valley and our large swimming pool.

Costa Rica has one of the lowest crime rates in Central America (equal to Boston, USA); and Atenas has one of the lowest crime rates in Costa Rica. Still, there is a security gate and friendly neighbors nearby for added security.

We have an excellent management team to provide you with tourist tips as well as handle any problems that might arise. The owners live year round 400 meters away from Casa Colibri.
