About the property

New 3bed 3bath Pool Villa with Incredible Mountain and Valley Views

If you are looking for the perfect vacation rental home in the best climate of the world; don’t look any further - your search ends here at Villa Colinas Antigua.

Villa Colinas Antigua is a beautiful brand new 3 bedroom 3 bathroom home located in the most exclusive gated community of Atenas: Roca Verde. It is only a 3-minute drive to the center of the quaint little town of Atenas, known for its “ El Mejor Clima del Mundo” which means “The Best Climate of the World. With warm daytime temperatures and cooler evenings, often referred to as forever spring, combined with spectacular valley and mountain views, this is truly a piece of paradise, and exactly what you are looking for to enjoy a fabulous vacation stay. In the evening view the twinkling lights of San Jose, (30 miles away).

This beautiful home sleeps 6 people and is excellently appointed throughout. The master bedroom with King size bed has an en-suite bathroom with soaking tub, walk-in shower, double vanity sinks, and a large walk-in closet. The two other bedrooms are also furnished with quality bedding; one King and one Queen size bed, each with private beautifully tiled luxury bathroom with walk-in shower and marble vanity.

The open floor plan is generous and inviting with comfortable seating, and is perfectly suited for relaxing and entertaining in style. The spacious kitchen with quality stainless steel appliances has beautiful granite countertops and is fully stocked with everything you might need to prepare a quick afternoon snack or cook that gourmet meal for your friends and family.

Villa Colinas Antigua has a perfectly situated solar heated sparkling pool plus outdoor also solar heated soaking tub from which you can all the time enjoy the incredible views of the ancient hills of Atenas and the complete central valley of Costa Rica. Both daytime and nighttime views are spectacular and never gets boring.

The surrounding gardens with National Guanacaste trees, waving palm trees, colorful tropical plants, and beautiful flowers, attract different species of butterflies and hummingbirds, creating a peaceful environment on the days that you just want to stay home and relax.

On the other hand If you are up for adventure or sightseeing, given its central location in the country, Atenas has direct access to several highways and it is close to most of the main attractions in Costa Rica: including its volcanoes, butterfly gardens, rainforests equipped with canopy tours and zip lines waiting for you to explore them and, yes, it’s within driving distance of the famous Pacific coast beaches. Multiple tours in the area allow for boating, white water rafting, and other outdoor activities.

As an additional service to our house guests, we offer a fee-based airport pick-up and drop-off to help you avoid the potential hassles involved in the transitions into and out of your time in Costa Rica (something to particularly consider when you have night-time travel plans, but a nice comfort to have in any event). We also provide car rentals and tours to all corners of the country, including the Poas and Arenal volcanoes, La Paz Waterfall gardens, private Catamaran Sailing tour, visit a Coffee farm, and tours custom made to our guests' requests throughout Costa Rica.

Our property managers, Aad & Marian Veltman, a multilingual Dutch couple are ready to welcome you at “Villa Colinas Antigua”, and will do everything within their power to make your stay a great success.

The gated entry has 24/7 security guards. In addition, there is a state of the art security system with telephone alerts to security guards and property managers.

Garden and pool cleaning is included for your convenience.

Cleaning of the house will be done before and after your arrival.

Extra cleaning during your stay can be arranged at your own expenses. Please coordinate this with property management.

Book your Costa Rican vacation stay at Villa Colinas Antigua and be guaranteed to have a wonderful vacation.

A cleaning fee of $75 will be charged. This includes cleaning before your arrival and after your departure.

Why Aad and Marian Veltman chose World

We chose Atenas for our home away from home because of its small town charm, fantastic weather, and its central location. We are conveniently located close to many of the Costa Rican attractions, such as the rain and cloud forests, Lake Arenal, beautiful waterfalls, beaches, coffee farms and much more! And if it is the big city shopping that you want, we are only 35 minutes from the malls in Escazu and San Jose’s international airport.

What makes this bungalow unique

The house has a very open floor plan designed to bring the outdoors in to enjoy the wonderful Atenas weather. In the evening you can see the twinkling lights of San Jose and the valley below, and even the strobe approach lights to the airport. During the day when clouds come down through the valley and over the mountains, the amazing view is constantly changing.

As we are in Oklahoma we are very fortunate to have Aad and Marian Veltman, our talented property managers, on site to help you with any immediate needs. They are an amazing couple and are very familiar with the area and offer many services, I would suggest you arrange for them to pick you up at the airport. They will stop by the grocery so you can pick up a few basic supplies and deliver you to your home. From experience, we know this takes a lot of stress out of your arrival after a day of traveling. Then if you want a rental car Aad can arrange an excellent rate and the car will be delivered to Atenas. Check with Aad ahead of time for this, however. Aad and Marian also own a tour company, Bunki Tours, and can arrange any sightseeing trips you might desire.

excellent property

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have rented multiple times in Costa Rica. This property is just as good as the previous ones we stayed at. The home is spacious, modern, well-appointed and clean. Do you want a view? You can't get much better with direct sighting of Turrialba, Irazu and Barva as well as San Jose airport. The road leading up to the house is easy to navigate and you feel safe enough

It's close to Atenas and anything you would need for your stay.

The property managers Aad and Marian are exceptional and go out of their way to keep you happy.

Do not overlook this property.

My husband and I stay at Villa Colinas Antigua for the last 5 days of our Costa Rica visit. The property was well laid out with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The kitchen was well appointed and the bedrooms were very comfortable. The views from the pool area were incredible. Aad and Marion were wonderful property manager and we will definitely return.
