  • Casita in the heavens

    "I spent 33 wonderful days at the casita and enjoyed the peaceful surroundings and experienced everything from an active volcano, toucans singing in the trees in the front yard, and an occasional falling star at night.  The view as other guests had mentioned was amazing. A grand experience indeed.  The casita is well appointed and a perfect fit for a solo traveler.  My wife did visit for a quick 6 days.  She slept on the pullout couch during her stay and was very comfortable with plenty of soft pillows and covers.  The owner has every pot, pan and utensil you would need. I didn't cook much there as I wanted to experience all the different cuisines that the local Atenas area had to offer.  The shower was perfect with plenty of hot water and a good flow.  The owner was very articulate with directions concerning the washer, Wifi, Netflix, and other items to make your stay easy and comfortable.     I walked down the mountain to the city center from the casita everyday, it is about a 4 mile walk and only once did I walk back to the casita as going up the mountain is very taxing (not bad for a guy pushing 60 in a couple months. lol).  A taxi ride between the casita and city center was about $5 - $6 USD.  I have been to 4 continents and this was my 27th visit to Costa Rica since 2008. I must say that the casita was one of my favorite destinations ever. That is a big statement for sure, but it is true.  Magda, the owner's right hand gal, was and is a very big help when settling into to the casita.  In fact, I tagged along with her to the farmers market a couple of Fridays.  I also went down to have breakfast at her hotel, and she is an excellent cook too.  I want to thank the owner for having me and another big shout out to Magda.  The casita is an excellent means to recharge your batteries.  If you are looking for a very peaceful and tranquil location then I would highly recommend the casita. Pura Vida !!"

  • Did not want to leave, beautiful home

    "We stayed here for a week in November and had a great time. The house is situated on a hill just outside of town with nice views. Sitting on the deck early morning watching Toucans and the sunrise with a cup of coffee was really nice. The house was very clean, as were the grounds and the lovely pool. Cannot think of anything we needed. The road the house is on is very quiet and great for long walks and bird watching. The supermarkets are perhaps 10 minutes away. We went during the rainy season because the prices are usually lower, and in the 10 days we were in Costa Rica we saw rain for about an hour. Would not hesitate to go back to this home again and may do so in a year or so with family. Andrew by the way was very helpful in providing information prior to the rental and in getting us situated."

  • Amazing!

    "I cant put into words how beautiful the property, view, and amenities were. Marian and Aad were amazing host and thought of every detail that you could need in the home. We took two tours that Aad suggested (coffee and sailing) both were amazing and if visiting this area should be a must. Woke up in our comfortable bed and enjoyed the mountain view every morning. Thanks guys and hope to come back soon. Pura Vida :)"
