About Joe Rees
Hello! We're Nancy and Joe Rees... and we love Costa Rica. We recently built a beautiful house in Atenas. We're looking forward to retiring here, but until then we would love to share our peaceful retreat with you. Thanks for considering our house.
Joe Rees purchased this Villa in 2008
Why Joe Rees chose Atenas
We built our home in central Costa Rica, near a small town called Atenas, for easy access to the international airport, wonderful climate, traditional Costa Rican culture, and its' strategic location, the perfect spot for exploring all the wonders Costa Rica has to offer.
What makes this Villa unique
We enjoy swimming in the pool, day trips to the beach, local restaurants, soaking in the outdoor jacuzzi, yoga, zip lining, napping in the hammock, hiking, bird watching, the local farmer's market, white water rafting ...and much, much, more.

Our famqily of 5 (3 teens) were blown qaqwaqy by the beauty of the house anqd grounds, qanqd the jqaqw-dropping view! The owner wasq responsive and informaqtqie qahqeaqd of our stayq, answering my many questions. And the caretaker on the property was responsive and available for all of our needs. We did day trips to monteverde and the Doka coffee plantation - both well worth it. We also enjoyed the Friday morning farmers market. A beautiful property, and easy to get to and from the airport in San Jose.
Mountain top paradise
We wanted to move in. The pictures don’t do justice for how beautiful this house is. We will definitely rent again. The town had plenty of restaurants and our children loved swimming in the pool. The caretaker went above and beyond helping us out when we realized we left our passports behind in the safe. I highly recommend this property.
Wonderful Property, Great Location!
This was our third stay at Casa Tamarindo in the last four years. We keep coming back because the house and grounds are gorgeous and well maintained. The kitchen is well stocked with all the items you will need to prepare just about anything you want. Since our last stay, we were aware of "upgrades" that were made. Not big things, but things that make your stay that much more comfortable and enjoyable. Like a huge overhead fan in the living room for those times when there is no breeze blowing, and an outdoor BBQ-eating-lounging area.
If you are looking for a place in Atenas to relax, unwind, and enjoy nature, you will be hard put to find a better one!
We will be back!!
+House. Amazing compound with three houses (two bedrooms and then living area). Nicely furnished and tasteful decor.
+Atmosphere. Tranquil and exotic. Beautiful gardens and 360 vistas.
+Convenience. Laundry, kitchen, grill, garage.
+Location. Half hour from San Jose airport. Within a few hours of many of Costa Rica’s greatest sights (day trips).
-Pool was not heated. Fresh temperatures!
-Atenas doesn’t have much to offer per se.
Magical home and a magical vacation
The pictures do not convey the true beauty of this home. From the moment we arrived, Elias, the caretaker, showed us around and made us feel at home. Each room is designed with comfort and class. Care has been taken in making sure that all the needs of the guests are met. Each porch overlooks a beautiful vista. Each day we enjoyed the different views and saw new things. From a porch you can see Tucans in the trees, Iguanas sunning themselves (yet the keep their distance)...the plants and flowers are breathtaking. Each morning we enjoyed hearing the local roosters (seriously). My husband an I enjoy cooking and each evening prepared a meal in the well appointed kitchen from food that we bought at the local Feria - or farmers market. Make sure you take in the Friday market in Atenas for the best seafood, meat, fruit, vegetables, coffee and cheese. Not to be missed. The pool and hot tub became a ritual and truly enjoyed being able to swim laps in a salt water - not a chlorinated pool. We were concerned about no TV...and didn't miss it a bit. We connected our iPhone music and enjoyed the sounds. We also were able to stream a few programs and football games from or computer.
Thank you Joe for sharing your home...thank you Elias for taking care of us...we will return! Your home and Atenas are beautiful.
Our family stayed in Atenas for 3 nights and, for us, Villa Tamarindo was love at first sight. It’s just hard to describe what an incredible place it is: the views, the beauty, the comfort, the luxury. We were greeted by Elias, the on-site caretaker, who couldn’t be a lovelier man. He showed us around, explained the keys, lighting, nuances of the home. It is set up as three separate pagodas surrounding a gorgeous pool and surrounded on all sides by stunning views of forest, hilly pastures and just awe-inspiring nature. No one in my family wanted to leave. Thank you so much to Joe for allowing us some extra time to check out and for sharing your stunning home with us.
