Overview

About the property

This beautiful custom built home sits on a large 3,000 m2+ (3/4 of an acre) lot with stunning views of the Central Valley, San Jose and the surrounding mountains. True to Antigua del Valle’s Spanish Colonial “sabor”, this new home has all of the same colonial details as the other homes and has been specifically designed to fit it’s surroundings. The main courtyard entry garden and two story observation tower are just two of the unique features that make La Palma a one of a kind showplace.

The main entry is an impressive stone faced tower, with double doors that open into this spectacular home. Once inside, there is a beautiful wrought iron and wood spiral staircase that leads to an observation room, providing stunning views of the surrounding countryside!

La Palma also feature paladin style doors and windows off the living areas as well as large picture widows and walls of sliding glass doors throughout the home, taking advantage of Atenas’ eternal spring like climate, the AMAZING VIEWS, and creating the ultimate indoor/outdoor living experience. The details of this home have been carefully considered, and then reconsidered.

The owners have gone above and beyond in furnishing this home to luxurious but comfortable perfection. The living areas offer two seating areas; one with a sofa, two side chairs, and t.v. area. The other offers 4 leather captains chairs, perfect for having afternoon cocktails with friends.

Each of the master bedrooms is fitted with luxurious king sized beds, therapeutic, pillow top mattresses, and fine linens. Each master suite has it’s own spa quality bathroom, with beautiful travertine and marble finish work. The main master bedroom has a 4 person, custom built jacuzzi, perfect for a romantic evening or to share with your guests after a long day of adventure in the Costa Rican countryside. Large walk-in closets are complete with towels, extra pillows, sheets, blankets, and even beach towels.

The custom kitchen is fully equipped for you to prepare gourmet meals for your guests. There is also a full utility room with washer and dryer at your disposal.

The front terrace has everything you need to enjoy dinning ‘alfresco’, with a table and chairs for 6, a separate seating area, gas grill, all overlooking the pool, sun deck, and the surrounding mountains.

The home office provides a great workspace, with wireless internet, custom built desk, and again stunning views of the mountains. There is also a twin bed, and 1/2 bath which is perfect for children or as an overflow sleeping area for guests. In addition, the home offers 2 additional inflatable, twin mattresses, complete with linens.

Luxury villa. Outstanding views.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 enjoyed exploring Costa Rica from the luxurious comfort of the villa. Interior design is very stylish and chic. Beds are super comfortable. It has everything you may need (W/D, fully equipped kitchen, top of the line appliances and much more). Jacuzzi was a huge bonus. Dennis is an excellent host.

We enjoyed our stay in the private 5 star resort style villa.

Thank you very much.

The house Is gorgeous

  • 4 of 5

We loved the house, well equipped, comfortable. Perfect for two couples. But the wind was unrelenting. We ate outside only twice in two weeks because of the wind. Otherwise, a wonderful place.

Spectacular Views in a Beautiful Town

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at this beautiful home for the New Year. It was a short drive from the SJO airport and comfortably fit our family of 5. The view was spectacular and absolutely worth getting up for sunrise. The house was equipped with all the essentials and we especially enjoyed the kitchen which made cooking food from the local grocery store and market very convenient.

Dennis, the property manager, was very responsive throughout the booking process as well as our stay. He shared a list of suggested activities and restaurants from nearby Atenas which was very helpful. We also came to love his sweet dog that would come visit throughout the day.

During the peak season in Costa Rica, we were so thrilled to have been able to stay at this hidden gem and experience everyday Costa Rican life in Atenas. We were thankful to have a four-wheel drive get up the steep hill to the house as well as for day trips we made to Adventure Park, Jaco, Playa Mantas, Rainmaker Conservation Park, and Sarchi. To top it off, Atenas is known for its glorious weather and we were so glad we were waking up there instead of in the below freezing weather that awaited us back at home. Looking forward to return soon!

The property is lovely, good house, fantastic view, well equipped kitchen, good internet, even Alexa

  • 5 of 5

Four of us spent the week at this lovely home and thoroughly enjoyed the mornings and our friendly boxer neighbour (dog). We recommend the Toledo Coffee tour and the Co-op grocery store. Don't be deterred by the road, there is a gem at the end of it.

Vacation Renters BEWARE

  • 5 of 5

Hopefully the title got your attention. Now in a moment I'll explain why I'm warning you about this place. We showed up the first day as the sun was setting -- the view from the home was just stunning. In the morning as the sun came up, the view was even more incredible. Actually, breathtaking. The house is absolutely first class through and through. Appliances are high quality. The kitchen is a top-notch. The bedding is very comfortable. So why the warning? Well, after just 36 hours, my wife and I asked Dennis the host if the owner might consider selling the home to us--but unfortunately he wouldn't. My wife actually didn't want to leave the property to go sightseeing because -- well she was so enamored with the area surrounding and the view from the house. In the end, we'd be biten by the bug---and we did buy a house in Atenas. Just not this one. So when you're there, and you fall in love with it, just remember you were warned! In all seriousness ... really wonderful property. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat and I'd recommend it to anyone.
