  • Casa Doughty- Amazing

    "We stayed at Casa Doughty during the week of Thanksgiving, 2015. There were 7 people in our group ranging in age from 16 years to 77 years old. This place was exactly as described and perfect for our family and friends. My main concern was for the 77 year old (my mom). My mother had a slight stroke a year ago and stairs can be tricky...as well as floor rugs. Casa Doughty was very easy for her to navigate, both inside and out. The grounds and pool are beautifully maintained. The inside was very clean and the kitchen was equipped with anything you may need. We ran into one slight problem regarding a car rental. However, a quick email and one phone conversation with Steve and Diane quickly had the matter resolved. Atenas and Casa Doughty are perfectly situated for having a "home base" and having access to many other places. We visited volcanoes (Poas and Arenal), went deep sea fishing in Jaco , visited beaches (my favorite was Playa Dona Ana where we were able to feed Capacin monkeys), toured a nearby coffee plantation and enjoyed the city of Atenas. In order to do these things a rental car is a MUST. Yes, driving in Costa Rica is different from driving in the states, and usually takes longer due to road conditions, but it is hardly the nightmare some have alluded. A good GPS (usually provided by the car rental agency), a wee bit of caution and common sense are all that one needs to successfully navigate Costa Rican roads. I would highly recommend Casa Doughty!"

  • Perfection in Paradise

    "My wife and I stayed here for 2 weeks in 2013. It was perfect. Our hosts, Monica and Bernard have created a mini-nature preserve on their beautiful property, with fruit trees an incredible botanical garden and excellent birding opportunities. The rental house is perfectly equipped, modestly priced and has a beautiful private swimming pool. Only a short drive from the city of Atenas. We will definitely be returning to Finca Miramonte."

  • Penthouse in San Jose

    "I stayed here with two of my colleagues for a 2-month long externship with the Poder Judicial. Tomas was the best host. He made it simple and easy to get to his apartment from the airport and was very responsive whenever anything came up. He also gave us our space but was always accessible. While we stayed we had a few hiccups with the apartment but they were usually fixed within the day if not within a few hours. We got along great and spent a few nights simply conversing with him. The apartment itself is older and the kitchen is small but functional and we made it work btwn the three of us. The neighborhood is usually calm although the train is near by and the neighbors all own more than a few dogs but are usually not a problem during the night but can create a ruckus. The center of town is about 15-minute walk as well as the nearest grocery store. Taxis are always easily accessible by the hospital that is near by. We really enjoyed the cafe around the corner as well. Overall we had a great experience and really lucked out to have such an amazing host. Couldn't have imagined staying in a busier part of the city this was a perfect combination."

  • Great experience!

    "Casa Megumi was the first stop of our journey around Costa Rica. Casa Megumi includes apartment in downtown Atenas and a house (Casa Lantana) and an apartment within 2 km drive from Atenas. We truly enjoyed spectacular mountain views, gorgeous landscape, lush vegetation, and very comfortable stay in Casa Lantana. We travelled with two small kids. Two bedrooms of Casa Lantana perfectly worked for us. House was exceptionally clean and welcoming. A big covered patio with a hammock and a table for four was our favorite place to hang out when we were at home. There is also a pool that our kids very much enjoyed. Atenas served us a perfect base to explore central Costa Rica. We travelled to Carara National Park, Grecia, Sarchi, Zarcero, San Jose/ Escazu/ Alajuela. Hisano is a great great host. She goes beyond your expectations to make your stay comfortable. She eagerly shares tips on getting around, transportation, buying groceries, money exchange, etc. She also helped us to Rent a car that was delivered to the house. Highly recommend! Would definitely stay at Casa Megumi again."
