Gorgeous Home with Amazing Views, Pool, Hot Tub
Picture waking up in a king-sized bed (with the best mattress ever!) in a master bedroom with floor-to-ceiling windows with million-dollar views in every direction. And, the deck/pool area - perfection. We spent a lot of time out there just soaking up not only the sun, but the glimmering night lights, as well. Comfortable patio and pool furniture. Grounds and house were immaculate. Modern dishwasher, washer and dryer, microwave and oven. Phone for local use - taxi arrived in about two minutes for ride into Atenas.
Superb in every aspect
We rented La Perla in February in order to experience the wonderful weather in Atenas. The house was perfect in every way. The three bedrooms each have comfortable beds, large bathrooms, and walk-in closets. In addition, they are separated in a manner that allows complete privacy. It was perfect for three adult couples.
The kitchen is large and extremely well equipped. We especially appreciated the complete set of Rubbermaid containers in which to store fruit, leftovers, etc. All of the appliances were top of the line and worked.
The living and dining areas were quite nice, but we never used them. We spent all of our time on the deck where there is a dining table and a comfortable seating area. Atenas is sometimes quite windy; the glass East wall on the deck provides just the right break from the wind. The retractable shades provide excellent protection from afternoon sun. The heated pool was perfect for a cool off after being out all day.
We were able to pick tangerines off the tree in the yard. The yard, itself, if very well maintained by Ulysses, the gardener. Sophia, the cleaning lady does a very thorough job.
Without doubt, La Perla is a gem.
Heaven on earth !!!
La Perla is absolutely fabulous ! This is our second year in a row that we've had the pleasure of spending our 3 week vacation in Atenas. If you think the place looks awesome in the photos wait till you see it , it is gorgeous !!!
Aad and Marian are great, from organizing our airport pick up and drop off to booking whatever it was we wanted to do, we always new they were but a phone call/text away.
We had the pleasure of being welcomed at the airport by Marco, who is fabulous ! he also picked up 2 other couples that were joining us during our stay. It was great that even though we had rented a vehicle there was no need for us to drive at night to the airport. thanks a bunch Marco :)
Isabel is a gem, she made the whole house shine and such a beautiful smile and great personality, gracias Isabel .
Gotta check out a few favorite restaurants;
La Terrazza is a must, Omar, Wilber and Chikating :) made our experience so special that we had to go back numerous times lol. Great Italian restaurant and the food is FABULOUS!
Kays is the best place for an awesome breakfast and lunch, the Polish sausage and the cabbage rolls with dill sauce are to die for, thanks Anna.
La Perla and Atenas deserve a 10 star rating !!!
See you in 2021

New Year’s family vacation
Our family , with 2 sixteen year olds and nineteen year old stayed at La Perla over New Year’s week. The house is so beautiful and yet comfortable. It was the best vacation we’ve ever had. The climate was paradise as the area had just left the rainy season. We spent most of our time at the house outside enjoying the pool and the evenings were still filled with the fresh air from the screened doors. The tv room is really nice but our teens spent all their time outside. Aad and Marian took care of every detail of our itinerary. We opted for the zipline, private catamaran, ATV and Carara national park tours. The tours were so much fun for our family, seeing waterfalls, nesting macaws, monkeys, and snorkeling. The tours were some of the best we’ve ever had. I was so thankful to have Aad and Marian’s expertise in planning and I felt we could call if we ever needed anything. Our last day the girls had facials by the pool also scheduled by Aad. We opted for a private driver for transportation to the excursions and really glad we did as most were 2 hours away and heavy holiday traffic. Our teens loved the local pizza place Pizzeria La Finca. They easily delivered to us, and understood enough English to take our order over the phone. Our teens also loved the local empanada de pollo at the bakery by La Coope supermercado. Definitely would recommend this property and hope for a return visit.
