The Villa overlooks a sparkling pool that is surrounded by almost two acres of beautiful very private gardens. You will be able to see fabulous views of the Central Valley that go on and on for miles. One of the best features of the Villa is the expansive forty foot outdoor covered terrace attached to the back of the living/dining room area. You’ll especially find yourself enjoying this area morning, noon and night. The terrace is perfect for entertaining or just enjoying that glass of wine at the end of a very adventuresome day. And since Atenas is noted for having the best climate in the world, it is one of the best places to vacation in Costa Rica!

All The Comforts of Home
Our Villa features a second story master suite with walk-out balcony overlooking the gardens and the Central Valley. A perfect place to enjoy a gorgeous sunrise while sipping some of our complimentary Costa Rican coffee. The master suite features a king-sized bed with luxurious bedding, a 32” HDTV, huge walk in closet, and an in- suite bathroom including double vanities and a soaking tub with a safety bar. Further down the upstairs hall is two more large bedrooms. One has a custom queen-size bed with luxurious bedding, a walk-in closet, and the third bedroom has a double size-bed with luxurious bedding, and a shared bathroom between them.

On the main floor is another custom king-size bedroom overlooking the pool. It is right next to the downstairs guest bathroom. The open floor plan of the living room area has ample comfy seating, a 42 inch HDTV, DVD’s, and a few games. It has access to the expansive sliding glass doors that open onto the forty foot covered terrace. The area is ideal for entertaining and, of course, you will find a large propane BBQ grill for your dining pleasure. Out on the terrace you will be amazed at the many visitor’s that stop by the Villa daily. Included in that list of visitors are our favorite toucans, green parrots, a large variety of butterflies, hummingbirds, and many other birds.

From the end of the terrace is your entry through double glass doors into the dining room that seats six comfortably. Our guests can easily flow from the living room into dining room and then into the over-sized well-equipped gourmet kitchen.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Steve and I have always loved to travel to faraway destinations. When we found this Villa in Atenas we knew this was a good place to have s a home base to explore all Costa Rica has to offer. So when we are exploring the country we are excited to be able to share Villa Doughty with you and your family and or friends. We chose the Atenas area because of the fabulous weather year round and its close proximity to so many great attractions. According to National Geographic magazine Atenas has "The best climate in the World". We agree! On a personal note Steve retired after working 45 plus years in the computer programming industry and Dianne retired from American Airlines having worked for the American Airlines Federal Credit Union for almost 20 years. We are now enjoying our free time by exploring more of Costa Rica and of course visiting family and friends back in the states. We really would appreciate your providing your phone number when inquiring about availability so we can contact you to help answer any questions you might have about our Villa. We want you to be comfortable about choosing our home so that you will be sure to enjoy your vacation and your time in the Central Valley!

Why the Owner Chose Atenas, Costa Rica:
Exploring Costa Rica …Things To Do Villa Doughty is about a seven minute drive to the center of Atenas. There you will find several grocery stores, a hardware store, post office, medical services, veterinarians, dentists, pharmacies, many restaurants and our beautiful Central Park. Villa Doughty is less than 5 minutes away from the Super Caldera Highway (Highway 27) Atenas exit. This makes it very convenient for you to travel in almost any direction. You are about an hour from Poas Volcano, the nearby LaPaz Waterfall Gardens and Butterfly Farm, San Jose Museums, Jaco Beach and other Central Pacific beaches and Casinos. You are just over 30 minutes from Escazu, an upscale city, that has the MultiPlaza shopping Mall with many posh restaurants, wonderful shops, and multiple theaters. Several hours to the north of us is the Arenal Volcano and Monteverde Cloud Forest. As an additional service to our house guests, our bi-lingual property managers (Aad and Marian), offer a fee-based airport pick-up and drop-off service. They can help you avoid the potential hassles involved in the transitions into and out of your time in Costa Rica (especially something to consider when you have night-time travel plans.) They can meet and greet you upon your arrival at either the SJO airport or in Atenas. Since they live nearby, they can be reached by phone to help with any questions that might arise during your stay. They will do everything possible to make your stay a success.
