Why Charles/Gloria chose Atenas
Close to SJO airport (much appreciated after a late night arrival) yet still isolated in a safe, friendly town. Easy 5 min. drive over good roads to Supermarkets and town square. Low, low humidity. Well-built house, especially plumbing (no need for unpleasant 'waste' baskets in bathrooms...). Paved road so no dust storms to interfere with your harmony.
What makes this house unique
Automatic coded security gate, frontage is paved (no dust), true lap-pool, good plumbing, fully solar hot water and electricity (with electric company on standby for cloudy days) owners live in neighborhood year round.
