Atenas House Rental Photos and Description
House, 3 Bedrooms + Living area, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 6)

This NEWLY REMODELED home is located in one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in the Atenas area. This home features a private deck and pool area, great views of the central valley and is surrounded by one of the nicest gardens to be found in town. This home sits at the top of a ridge overlooking the green hills and lush tropical landscape below. It is located inside a protected forestall reserve with luxurious virgin vegetation as well as lush gardens surrounding the property. Beautiful trees and flowering plants offer guests a powerful mixture of colors and privacy. The adjacent hills are dotted with luxurious vegetation, including many species of precious trees like the Guanacaste and Matapalo, flowering trees such as the brilliant orange Poró and many fruit trees including mangoes, limes, bananas, papayas and oranges. A wildlife corridor extends from the Rio Colorado, and white-faced monkeys, sloths, anteaters, and birds including toucans are regularly seen from the villas.

The site: The site is mountainous with fantastic panoramic views: to the northeast, the Atenas Valley with Póas, Barva and Irazú volcanoes in the background, to the southwest the Rio Grande Valley and to the east, the Central Valley with thousands of lights coming alive at nightfall.

The house has been constructed with a Balinese tropical architecture style in mind. The home is divided into two separate structures featuring open floor-plans, peaked rooflines, deep covered decks and patios and visually-open wood and glass walls.

The home: One of the two main structures has two large master bedrooms, one with a large tub and another with a large shower separated by a multi use bed/living room, while the second main structure features a modern kitchen with all appliances, a living room with panoramic views of the pool, porch and valley area. Within this main structure there is also a separate den/study area and a breakfast bar and dining area.

The home has a large wrap-around porch, and pool. The porch area has rustic furniture and pool chairs for your leisure. This is a great area for use of the gas grill and to enjoy some meals outdoors as well as relaxing paths to the garden area or walks in the neighborhood. The lush garden area will add to your enjoyment. You can relax in our large pool that is located between the two structures.

The neighborhood: This neighborhood is an architecturally distinctive development nestled in an environment of pristine beauty allowing for meaningful interaction with nature and the local culture.

You will enjoy visiting the town of Atenas that is known for its friendly and helpful people. Visit the outdoor market that offers delicious local fruits, vegetables, and seafood or dine in one of the various cafes or bars to taste the local food specialties. Or just go and sit in the peaceful Central Park and visit with the locals or just watch the people go by. In addition, Atenas has been ranked by the National Geographic Magazine as having one of the best climates in the world!

Perfect for cultural experience

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 14, 2012
  • Stayed: Feb 2012
Pros:
1. Private and secluded
2. Perfect location for an authentic cultural experience, as the house is located in the central Costa Rican town of ATenas
3. Beautiful home, with all the modern amenities (and clean drinking water) in a gorgeous setting
4. Working with Andrew, the property manager, was not only a breeze, but an incredibly positive experience
5. Peaceful location
6. Unique floor plan that adds to the tropical feel
7. Great nighttime serenades by multiple species of unseen (and unknown) wildlife in the surrounding trees!
8. Extraordinary sunsets and a fantastic view

Cons:
1. Not as clean as I would like, i.e. the kitchen is a bit disorganized, the towels and linens were thrown haphazardly in the closets and the entire place could have used a good dusting. (Though I realize the house is airy and open and prone to dust...)
2. Far from beaches, though we did make a lot of day trips and it's very doable

Would suggest this home to anyone looking for an authentic, relaxing experience. Andrew is terrific to work with and Atenas is a charming little place. There's a local supermarket that's fully-stocked and the weather is perfect! People were friendly and we felt very safe.

amazing view of sunrise over the mountains from our bed!

We stayed in this balinese villa for just over two months and it was fabulous. The owners were wonderful and the place was really clean and well maintained. Furnished to a high quality, the privacy and relaxation available here is beyond compare. The views were amazing and sun rises everyday which we could see clearly from our bed was sensational. Far enough away from town to be private, but close enough for convenience, it was a perfect fit. Even though it was just the two of us living here, we had visitors and the place can comfortable hold 4-6 adults. We loved it!
