About the Property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 6)

Our executive home is located in a very private gated community. Our infinity pool looks over a stunning view of the mountains of Costa Rica. We generate electricity and heat our jacuzzi from the sun. The main house has about 2000 square feet of interior living space, a large beautiful kitchen and open concept living area, and a large master bedroom with outdoor shower. The 600 square foot casita has 2 bedrooms, a living room, and bathroom.

Our home and casita are very private, surrounded by native Costa Rica jungle, and with stunning views of the valleys and mountains of this part of the country. Our house is extremely well appointed.

You can choose between lounging in the infinity pool, the solar-heated jacuzzi, the well-appointed patio, or the comfortable hammock.

Our home is just outside Atenas, about 35 minutes from the Juan Santamaria International Airport. Atenas is located at the west end of Central Valley, and is about midway between San José and the Pacific Coast. For us, it is the perfect location, affording quick access to the city and its shopping, and the coast and its beautiful beaches, but with a pleasant climate all year-long. From Atenas it is under 1 hour to beautiful Playa Blanca or Jaco, or Poas Volcano.

Atenas has plenty of grocery stores, and a very good Farmer's Market every Friday. There are numerous good restaurants offering everything from traditional Costa Rica dishes to pizza to steak. The San Jose suburb of Escazu is only 30 minutes away, where you can find nearly every type of restaurant and shopping experience.

Our property managers, Aad and Marian, are available to help to make your stay even more enjoyable. They can arrange to pick you up at the airport, if you wish, and they offer custom tours and other other assistance.

Car: Recommended

Our home is located on the outskirts of the charming town of Atenas, at the west end of the Central Valley. Atenas is conveniently located about 30 minutes west of the International Airport, and about 1 hour from one of the prettiest beaches in Costa Rica. Atenas was declared by National Geographic to have "the best climate in the world", and is away from the stifling heat and humidity of the coast.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2011

About: We are a retired Canadian professional couple (lawyer, teacher). We are avid travellers, and have visited 58 countries, and counting.

Why Atenas, Costa Rica:
Costa Rica is, arguably, the most beautiful country in Central America. It is economically and politically stable, and is a dream destination for many travellers. Atenas is one of the most desirable locations in the country - situated very central to the International Airport, the city of San Jose, the Central Valley and the lovely Pacific Coast, but away from the crowds, heat and humidity. Our secure, gated community is very private, and is surrounded by native forest abundant with birds and wildlife.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
In addition to our lovely main house and casita, we have a lovely infinity pool and a solar-heated jacuzzi pool, with about 1000 square feet of outdoor living space. Part of the area is nicely screened for outdoor dining. We generate most of our own electricity, and our domestic hot water, from the sun. Our tropical gardens add to the serenity of your visit, enhanced by the dozens of types of tropical birds that inhabit our area.
