Christmas in CR!

  • 5 of 5

The house is great! Beds are comfy, there's good space for four adults (mom, dad, son and grand dad), the pool is awesome and they provide a starter supply of TP, and paper towels. The bath towels are top notch too! The property manager, Letitcia, is really responsive too. We only needed to sweep and couldn't find the broom or dustpan- I sent an email and she responded rightaway.

Our Christmas this year was fantastic here at this house! We laid by the pool, made great meals and played cards.

This house is an hour west of the airport, 2.5 hours from Manuel Antonio National Park, 1 hour from the beach. The town has a lovely grocery store- prices are equivelent with DC food prices, great place to buy fish, Del Mar, and La Cocina is a great restaurant in Atenas too. We went to some outstanfing tpurs- which were close: the chocolate tour in La Garita, the El Toledo coffee tour ( with lunch), and a botanical garden in La Garita. We did some "local" things, the falls at Desmonte and at Los Chorros. They were spatacular but pretty tough hikes- and only during the dry season or they're too dangerous. The trip to Manuel Antonio- amazing! Get a guide- we used Manuel from Manuel's tours- fantastic day! Follow what the guidebooks say- they are dead on: get there early, use a guide and arrange parking with Manuel.

Terrific property for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a pleasant 10 day stay at Villa Bonilla. The property is centrallly located with easy access to the beach in Jaco, the mountains to visit La Paz Waterfall , Poas volcano or if your missing the big city a short ride into San Jose. The villa is very well equipped for cooking and we enjoyed a couple pool days while taking in the amazing view followed by fresh fish on the grill. A special thank you to Leticia, the property manager who was there to greet us, arrange for a high chair and crib as well as give us some great tips on great things to see and restaurants to visit. All in all a great spot to truly enjoy a family vacation in central Costa Rica while having the comforts of home. Oh yeah... The kids really enjoyed the zip line and animals at Zoo Avenue and only 20 minutes away.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Two couples stayed two weeks. The house is very comfortable and very clean. We spent 90% of our house time on the patio by the pool, enjoying the view and the marvelous weather. We could walk to town, but when at the house felt that we were almost alone in the country. It is centrally located to many activities and a wonderful place to vacation.

More than we could have asked for

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a week with my two adult sons and husband. This is a wonderful property. Clean and comfortable. Perfect location, close enough to town to walk in for dinner and a Christmas parade, but far enough away to enjoy the country atmosphere!! It was a short Costa Rica drive (definitely takes a little more time to get places than expected) to a number of great attractions, including zip lining, horseback riding, the beach, or even the mall. The property manager was responsive to questions. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend to others.

Perfect & Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

We spent an amazing six weeks in this well-appointed and beautiful house. It had all the necessary tools for cooking and entertaining. We could not have asked for more. The house sits in an upscale gated community and offers privacy and a spectacular view to the town of Atenas and surrounding hills. The large private pool is well maintained and great to relax in. We also very much enjoyed the patio by listening to the birds and looking at the blue sky - so delightful! The owner and manager were easy to work with. We highly recommend this place. One of the best vacation! Thank you very much.
