Atenas House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 1/2 bathrooms, sleeps 4, pool w/view

Restore yourself at La Luna Vista, your luxury Bali home offering complete privacy and a 360 degree view of a lush, eco protected valley from every room in this modern custom built home. It's a modern Shangri La, yet a 2 minute drive into one of Costa Rica's loveliest towns, with it's market, restaurants, English speaking emergency room, orchid trees and church overlooking the central square , and, according to Natl Geographic, 'the best weather in the world'. Centrallly located, La Luna Vista is a 'home base' for your entire Costa Rican vacation and easy drives to volcanoes, cloud forests, beaches, river rafting, fishing, surfing, coffee farms, monkeys and bird watching. For an active or relaxing vacation

It's 'pura vida' as you sit by the pool overlooking the neighboring farm while the butterflies dance around you. Open the pocket doors entirely to the world outside while cooking in the in the completely modern gourmet kitchen. House is on one level with modern convenience.

The Best of All Possible Worlds: Our brand new home La Luna Vista really has all the modern amenities but is surrounded by nature. The Costa Rican government has chosen to preserve our gorgeous valley because of it's great natural beauty. You see only trees and mountains from the terrace that surrounds the house no matter where you look. At night, nature provides a light show in the clear skies, and sometimes you can watch lightening dance over the mountains beyond the valley. There is complete privacy yet on the other hand there are neighbors close by. Our little town of Atenas has wonderful restaurants, many supermarkets with Chilean and Argentinean wines, and modern American kitchen necessities. A farmers market where all the surrounding farmers bring delicious mangoes, veggies, colorful fruits a local specialties happens every Friday in the park.

Activities? Or not!: You can relax poolside, sip smoothies or a glass of wine and completely remove yourself from the stress of contemporary life. But if you want to check your emails, we have wi-fi, and your Blackberry works in Costa Rica.

If you are looking for a more active time away from home, butterfly farms, volcanoes rain forests, river rafting, horseback riding, are all an easy drive.

If you want to hang ten or simply stroll on the pristine Costa Rica Beaches or swim in the warm Pacific water of famous surfing beaches like Jaco and Playa Hermosa which are only 45 minutes away.

Pura Vida!: It's no accident that Costa Ricans' motto is 'Pura Vida.' They are lovely, well educated, warm, and welcoming people.

living on a cloud

  • 5 of 5

"I have the difficult task of explaining what it feels to live on a cloud, literally, because the clouds swiftly surround this piece of land from time to time for just a few moments and you exist for a small time with the sky. The rolling hills that extend into the horizon from the property's backyard spoil your appetite to taste other adventures Costa Rica has to offer...why visit a cloud forest when you live in one? And, the beauty of this home absolutely ruins your patience to stay in any other vacation home less exceptional than this house. This house sits furthest out on the best slice of land in the community so no other rooftop adulterates the view of the magnificent Atenas mountains. You feel like you are the only person in the world with the safe satisfaction of a small, friendly community of home-owners right behind you. The decor of the house is minimal and craftful and every turn offers another opportunity to enjoy the goodness of life. And that's all before leaving the house!

The drive from Atenas to San Jose offers panoramic views of Costa Rica Pura Vida and you find yourself downtown in less than an hour. The drive to the Pacific side (Jaco/Manuel Antonio) provides equally impressive views ending in beautiful beaches and national parks less than 90 minutes away. Local fruit and vegetable stands abound in either direction, so there is always a chance to buy the best avocados on your way to and from home. The location of this house gives you the best chance to experience Costa Rica's coasts, volcanos, and local life and still be home to grill yourself a nice steak and take in the gorgeous city lights from a far, far distance. The stars and moon at night, are of course unparallel.

I should stop here for fear of seeming unauthentic, but it's all true. Come experience it for yourself. You'll leave a different person."

Thanks so much for opening up this sweet serenity to my family Diana, and best of luck with future renters.

We stayed here with our son and his girlfriend and had an absolutely wonderful time. The home is as lovely as it looks in the pictures! What we didn't realize is that the two bedrooms are in two separate buildings - making it perfect for two couples giving each great privacy. The main house is in the middle. The view is spectacular and we loved sitting on the veranda at night watching the lighting show off in the distance! We took advantage of the offer to have someone come in an cook for us and the meal was delicious and it made for a relaxing time for us! I tend to be skeptical of reviews and if you are like me, I hope you'll take this review to heart!! Thank you so much for a very memorable time!

Great first trip to Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, my brother and his wife, had a great time enjoying one week at this property. The Barron’s home is beautiful, comfortable and lives up to the pictures. The climate in Atenas was perfect, day and night. The master suite and pool patio offer spectacular views. We relaxed, enjoyed the pool, visited the Pacific Coast, nature preserves, coffee plantations and the volcano and Lake in Arenol. The driveway to the house was steep, and the local roads twisty, so be forewarned, but otherwise, no surprises. We hope to return again to enjoy and see more of Costa Rica.

La Luna Vista was our "Brigadoon" and wonderful !

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Diana, Kathy and I will never be able to repeat our month at La Luna Vista.

Starting our first day was scary as our plane broke down in Atlanta. But when we arrived in San Jose 3 hours late Walters taxi was still there. We met Leticia at Cooperatenas where we purchased some groceries and went to the house. As soon as we entered we knew we had made the right choice. It took all of 5 minutes to adjust to your beautiful "Bali" home. It took us a week to adjust to getting back home!

We took a few tours but the view, atmosphere and secure feeling of your deck out-did everything else we did. Since we did not rent a car your steep drive was no problem for the Taxis. When we called them it never took more than ten minutes for them to arrive. They were all very nice!

Kathy fell in love with your well stocked kitchen. We shopped at the Farmers market in Grecia, she made most of our meals and we ate them next to the pool-candle lite and all.

It is hard to believe we spent a month without ever having to close the doors and windows.

Being on your web site I keep going back to the pictures and I feel like we're still there as they are so true.

Sample of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the most inspiring and beautiful places we have ever stayed! While hard to believe, this Bali Oasis is even more beautiful than displayed in the pictures. Very tastefully decorated with a stunning location overlooking the valley. Absolutely divine, hanging out (literally) with a cup of coffee while watching a different spectacular sunrise every day, listening to the crowing roosters, or strolling through the gorgeous flowering gardens so well maintained by Jaime. While we did a lot of day trips, this is a heavenly location to simply decompress, watching the various herds of cows in their daily rising routines, floating in the pool, or simply experiencing the day. Looking directly south out over the valley, each moment changes with colors and shadows as the sun progresses through the day. Definitely a four-wheel drive location, with a very steep and winding access - quite a challenging walk to drop off the daily trash bag at the villa entrance. The open air Balinese-style layout felt awkward at first, but became more comfortable every day. This villa is centrally located, with easy access to the toll highway just out of the quiet, local village of Atenas, and every convenience is right in the village: ATM, gas, groceries, pizza, several small restaurants, and farmers market. A GPS is absolutely necessary since road signs and directions are minimal to say the least - you would never find some of the local towns, restaurants, or gardens in the hills by simply winging it! A must stop is at La Casita del Cafe some 12 KM west for a delicious fruit drink or cappuccino. If you are fortunate, go there on a foggy afternoon and watch the fog climb up the valley and through the open cafe! Nearby sights of San Mateo (west) and the Orchid Garden (east) are well worth the pause. The welcome booklet has clear descriptions and directions to local restaurants and tourist spots. Just remember the basic rule of the road - if a vehicle is moving, it will not stop for another vehicle or for a pedestrian. Once you realize that, all is Pura Vida!

The Heavenly House

  • 5 of 5

While the photos are wonderful, nothing truly compares to actually staying in this incredible property for yourself. This sprawling, feng shui inspired home should be listed under 'prescriptions to totally relax and just be at ease on vacation.' In a nutshell, staying here is akin to having your own private luxury spa to wander around for a week. Each morning greets you with a postcard view of the surrounding land, and it morphs throughout the day as the light changes, leading you to yet another postcard view as the wayward sun sets in the distance. The small town of Atenas to quaint, and with a bit of a drive you can visit all sorts of local places ranging from the beach town of Jaco to the active Poas Volcano. The property manager of the house is a pleasure to work with, and the onsite cleaning and pool staff do an incredible job of keeping everything at 5-star caliber luxury. Simply put, staying in this home should be on your bucket list of things to do. :)
