About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This stunning and unusually spacious house is located in Atenas (‘the best climate in the world’ - National Geographic). It offers the peace and tranquility of a home away from home, as well as a base for touring the natural beauties. In addition to the 2 bedrooms and baths and a bunk-bed room, there is a gorgeous living room, a large full kitchen (with mountain views), and a private pool.

The house is also linked to the Internet through wi-fi.

Driving on the new highway from Atenas, you are now only about 35 minutes away from the Pacific Ocean, from Jaco, and other less touristed beaches. There is also a longer, more picturesque road (with breathtaking views) to the Pacific Ocean. You are also about 45 minutes from Poas Volcano, and the nearby majestic La Paz waterfalls and Butterfly Farm. Coffee plantations (try the Espiritu Santo cafetal in Naranjo) and the Zoological Park and Gardens of Alajuela are within a 20-45 minute drive, as is one of the newest parks – Turu Ba Ri – with Sky Ride, canopy walk, horseback riding, walking trails and bird watching. To the north is the Arenal Volcano and Monteverde Cloud Forest. The full service town of Atenas (supermarket, restaurants, pharmacy, banks, etc.) is only eight minutes away.

If it is rest and relaxation in a luxurious home in a perfect climate you desire, or sightseeing the marvelous attractions of Costa Rica, this uniquely situated and beautifully designed home offers both.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

Why the Owner Chose Atenas, Costa Rica:
We came to this area by accident and loved the mountains and the valley views and the fact that it is a less touristed part of Costa Rica. The house fits inconspicuously into the surrounding community; most of our neighbors are local people.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You wake up with the sun streaming through the kitchen windows. You take coffee or tea and listen to and watch the bird life in the trees and bushes around the house. You see the hummingbirds dashing around the cactus flowers and from one impatiens flower to the next. You take a swim in the pool in the middle of the day to cool off. You sit outside and enjoy the sunset and make plans to eat dinner at home or visit a local restaurant. It's a relaxing, comfortable life, interrupted by travel to local attractions if you want. But you return to a house you've come to feel at home in. And not least, you have the security of knowing that our wonderful caretakers, Aad and Marian Veltman, who are very knowlegdeable about the area, are just a stone's throw away.
