  • 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 !!"

  • Best host ever!

    "We stayed at Casa Lantana during January 2017. The town of Atenas was inviting and easy to navigate. Hisano, our host, greeted us and helped us get everything into the rental house. She then took us to town to show us where everything was. And she took us into the grocery to make sure we were able to navigate and to help us translate package labels. We've traveled through Asia, Europe, Central America, Australia, New Zealand, and the south Pacific. We have never had the attention and service that we received here from Hisano and her son, Mikel. Three of her rental locations welcomed new people at about the same time. To make us feel welcome and to introduce us to one another, she prepared a welcome dinner for us. She and her mother hosted our delightful evening and we were able to meet other travelers that we spent time with later in our stay. The property is beautiful with a variety of trees and plantings -- including a banana-type tree and a tangerine tree -- we got to share in the bounty of both. Every 4 or 5 days a bag of tangerines would arrive. And Hisano brought us fried banana-type fruit when she made them. The house we stayed in had plenty of space and everything we needed. We asked for additional pillows and another fan. Hisano not only got them for us, she made the pillows. Her personal touch made each day of our stay remarkable. She typically stopped in each day to see how we were doing and to see if there was anything we needed. She helped us decide where to eat, where to shop, where to tour, and how to travel by public transportation. If she was going to town, she'd typically ask if we'd like to go or if she could get us anything. Her generosity was remarkable. We felt totally spoiled. It was wonderful. I hope other travelers get to meet Hisano and stay at Casa De Megumi. Staying there was a blessing for us."
